Media Matters - On Hardball , Barnicle relied on misleading NY Times article to assert that Obama has raised more from big donors than McCain
I did a quick scan of how many stories were related to MSNBC. There are many. At what point to we rise the question what is their role in our election process? So far, there is many incidents that point to their support for John McCain. Yet, there are some questionable manipulation dynamics that bare review and concern.
Do you recall how vicious MSNBC was toward Hillary Clinton during the primary process? Most of Barack Obama's supporters did little to rise any concerns for the claim Chris Matthews' obsession with Clinton when beyond reporting to dedicating more then half his show bashing her. I know I was concerned for the unequal funding burden imposed on her from the endless attacks on her campaign. After record funding goals, she still came up short as a result of the attacking nature of the press, mostly MSNBC and CNN. It is one thing to battle a candidate and another to battle TV networks. The end result is she lost.
There were many who was concerned that all the love given to Barack Obama would turn sour when the general election came. As it stands, those concerns were well founded. MSNBC has dropped all support for Obama for, yes you guessed it, John McCain. From all of this I have one very import question: Why did they want Obama elected as nominee? Without having to note it, I have my own conclusions for why.
MSNBC and their conservative counter parts are not finished with Clinton. There is the matter of vice president, and they are making sure she does not get on the ticket. When a Republican says Clinton as the VP pick will help them, they are lying through their teeth. If that were the case, do you think they would broadcast it and campaign to make sure she is not chosen? As I note these comments Brewer from MSNBC is having a phony debate with a Republican and Democratic strategist . You know the Democratic strategist who seems to agree with every negative claimed against their Party. They are debating if Clinton is trying to steal Obama's nomination. From the video they used to make the claim, you have to stretch it to come to that conclusion, and MSNBC had no problem doing so.
My claim is this: What MSNBC is doing amounts to undue influence and questionable manipulation of the facts, airways and our election process. When you have a network with the financial influence MSNBC has, there is cause for concern. Now, until November, we have to watch this network do the same thing they did to Clinton to Obama. But now, the stakes are very high. I don't think this country can stand another Republican administration. This story will continue.
