MSNBC has disingenuously mischaracterized Mitt Romney’s statements. But, what else is new from a news outlet that is in the tank for the LEFT and the Democratic Party, including President Obama.

You can watch Romney’s full speech and read some of the stories about the FLAP here.

In the days of social media, NBC has NOT learned that they can no longer fool the American people with their biased view of the political world.

Update: Olbermann Responds – Keith Olbermann Fired by Current TV

Not really surprising – Keith Olbermann is just too high maintenance.

Current TV has fired Keith Olbermann, a network spokeswoman told TheWrap.

The controversial news host has been at the fledgling cable channel for less than a year.

Eliot Spitzer will replace Olbermann starting Friday night, the network announced.

Olberman got into a contretemps with the network over his role during Republican primary election coverage last December. But the host has a history of butting heads with management and other bosses, starting with ESPN, including MSNBC and now with the leadership at Current.

In its move on Friday, Current was clearly fed up with its star newsman.

 “Current was also founded on the values of respect, openness, collegiality, and loyalty to our viewers. Unfortunately these values are no longer reflected in our relationship with Keith Olbermann and we have ended it,” the network wrote in a letter to viewers published on its website.

So long, Keith.

You really won’t be missed and I hope you have some savings/investments, since I think you are pretty much finished in television.

Update:

Keith Olbermann responds:

My full statement:

I’d like to apologize to my viewers and my staff for the failure of Current TV.

Editorially, Countdown had never been better. But for more than a year I have been imploring Al Gore and Joel Hyatt to resolve our issues internally, while I’ve been not publicizing my complaints, and keeping the show alive for the sake of its loyal viewers and even more loyal staff. Nevertheless, Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt, instead of abiding by their promises and obligations and investing in a quality news program, finally thought it was more economical to try to get out of my contract.

It goes almost without saying that the claims against me implied in Current’s statement are untrue and will be proved so in the legal actions I will be filing against them presently. To understand Mr. Hyatt’s “values of respect, openness, collegiality and loyalty,” I encourage you to read of a previous occasion Mr. Hyatt found himself in court for having unjustly fired an employee. That employee’s name was Clarence B. Cain. http://nyti.ms/HueZsa

In due course, the truth of the ethics of Mr. Gore and Mr. Hyatt will come out. For now, it is important only to again acknowledge that joining them was a sincere and well-intentioned gesture on my part, but in retrospect a foolish one. That lack of judgment is mine and mine alone, and I apologize again for it.

Good luck, Keith, with that next job.

Pat Buchanan Blacklisted Off MSNBC

Posted Posted in MSNBC, Pat Buchanan

The Pat Buchanan book which precipitated Buchanan’s boot from MSNBC

Pat will be better off at a newly renovated CNN or over at Fox News (they really need some new blood).

My days as a political analyst at MSNBC have come to an end.

After 10 enjoyable years, I am departing, after an incessant clamor from the left that to permit me continued access to the microphones of MSNBC would be an outrage against decency, and dangerous.

The calls for my firing began almost immediately with the Oct. 18 publication of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”

A group called Color of Change, whose mission statement says that it “exists to strengthen Black America’s political voice,” claimed that my book espouses a “white supremacist ideology.” Color of Change took particular umbrage at the title of Chapter 4, “The End of White America.”

Media Matters parroted the party line: He has blasphemed!

A Human Rights Campaign that bills itself as America’s leading voice for lesbians, bisexuals, gays and transgendered people said that Buchanan’s “extremist ideas are incredibly harmful to millions of LBGT people around the world.”

Their rage was triggered by a remark to NPR’s Diane Rehm — that I believe homosexual acts to be “unnatural and immoral.”

On Nov. 2, Abe Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League, who has sought to have me censored for 22 years, piled on.

“Buchanan has shown himself, time and again, to be a racist and an anti-Semite,” said Foxman. Buchanan “bemoans the destruction of white Christian America” and says America’s shrinking Jewish population is due to the “collective decision of Jews themselves.”

Well, yes, I do bemoan what Newsweek’s 2009 cover called “The Decline and Fall of Christian America” and editor Jon Meacham described as “The End of Christian America.” After all, I am a Christian.

And what else explains the shrinkage of the U.S. Jewish population by 6 percent in the 1990s and its projected decline by another 50 percent by 2050, if not the “collective decision of Jews themselves”?

Let error be tolerated, said Thomas Jefferson, “so long as reason is left free to combat it.” What Foxman and ADL are about in demanding that my voice be silenced is, in the Jeffersonian sense, intrinsically un-American.

Consider what it is these people are saying.

They are saying that a respected publisher, St. Martin’s, colluded with me to produce a racist, homophobic, anti-Semitic book, and CNN, Fox News, C-SPAN, Fox Business News and the 150 radio shows on which I appeared failed to detect its evil and helped to promote a moral atrocity.

Well, this is B.S. but hopefully Pat will get a generous settlement and a new GIG soon. MSNBC and NBC News are insufferable LEFT-WING zealots.

Pat should come back with Micheal Kinsley and redo their Cross-fire Show of the 1980’s and early 1990’s.

SNL Parodies of Clint Eastwood’s Half Time in America Are Really Stupid

Posted Posted in NBC, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Saturday Night Live
The first one below is for the third quarter and calls Rick Santorum a “PUSSY” – real mature NBC.

This second one is for the fourth quarter and talks about Newt Gingrich having a big head = more name calling.

The third one, I won’t even bother, since it is just nonsense.

I understand this is supposed to be comedy, but this exercise like many over there at NBC just seem to be simple name calling of Republican POLS. Where is your parody of Obama, Lorne?

Go figure….
