Yet another reason not to watch this crap pile of a network. Watch as MSNBC's Laurence O'Donnell blatantly lies. Hes either really out of touch, or it just lying and hoping the audience will choose to beleive him. Either way this is just pathetic.




ABRAM: I don't believe it because I heard him say on a quote, on television, that, you know, it may take 5 or 10 years but we will move to a single-payer health, or single-payer-

O'DONNELL: He, Katy, he's never said that. He has never said we will move to a single-payer plan.

ABRAM: I heard, I heard it on TV. I heard it on TV. I heard him saying it.

O'DONNELL: The President of the United States. Katy, the President of the United States has never said it.


Excuse me?



Notice the word games O'Donnel is playing? The look on this guys face is sinister. Fox I can handle, but this crap is nothing but bile.

AWWW....

You showed your hand at the end.

It was great up until there.

Remember, reporters are supposed to be unbiased.

Does that change the fact that the interviewer in the first video lies about what Obama said and then in the second video the proof is given?

Personally I don't listen to any of the talking heads.

Semantics at this point.

No he didn't say it, after being elected. That is actually correct in this case.

What Obama said as a senator or a presidential candidate doesn't count now because he hasn't said it as president of the united states?

I'm not sure which bothers me more, the fact that MSM news is right, because he hasn't said it as PRESIDENT, or the fact that they didn't report it when he DID say it before the election.

It is also more than telling here, because we only hear about this AFTER he was elected and health care reform became a major issue, and problem because the true agenda has revealed itself to the American people.

Well that is what you get for watching MSNBC.


That network is one pathetic excuse for news. Obviously, their corporate parent, GE, stands to make billions by its non stop butt kissing of Obama. They will make a fortune if cap and trade or the healtchcare bill pass. If they both pass I guess we better all run and buy GE stock.

No no, you misunderstand me. I'm a journalist and I cannot stand Fox News. Anytime they report on something I'm very knowledgeable about, they get everything wrong. Believe me, I'm in no way, shape, or form defending Fox news here. I'm simply saying there may be a few redeemable qualities to Fox (I'll go in to more in PMs if you want), but what we have here is just pure propaganda skank.

I hope we're clear now.

Yeah, like I said in the OP hes playing word games. The problem is he obviously knows what hes doing and its obviously an attempt to divert from the truth.

MSNBC is so in the tank for Obama, that they have an open instant message line to MSNBC on the Morning Joe show, to send them any updates or corrections to anything that was said. Occasionally, Mika, the daughter of Obama's political mentor, Zbigniew Brzezinski, screws up and actually mentions that she just got a correction from the White House.

Isn't that a violation of propaganda laws?


Of course it doesn't surprise me though, this crooks will do anything to earn a buck, I guess it doesn't matter what the law is when you are above it.

I feel bad for this woman in the interview it seems like the talking head lied to her before they went on air, you could tell she got really uncomfortable when he started talking about medicare and everything. Speaking of which maybe somebody should clue this guy into about how it is already bankrupt.

I noticed something about this woman though, it seems like she just one day connected all the dots. Or somebody connected them for her. Her comment about always being at war she definitely didn't get that from a talking head.

I cant figure out why these people agree to go on that network, other than ignorance of whats going to happen to them. Its obvious MSNBC has been bringing these people on in order to discredit and smear them. Both Mathews and O'Donnell have been MSNBC & Obama's personal attack dogs.

She schooled MSNBC? That's a laugh. I was watching it. He made her into a joke. She said, "I saw it on TV". She didn't say I heard Obama say it. Did you notice how she dropped it right away? I'll tell you why. She saw Glenn Beck say Obama said it. She knew she was a hair's breadth from having to admit that. "They told me Obama said it" was right there on the tip of her tongue.

I felt sorry for her when she had to keep saying that she wasn't very smart and knew nothing about politics etc. I can't believe I saw this topic this morning. You really have to be kidding. Talk about spin, this takes the cake. The right is lying about health care for political gain and this poor woman is one of the victims trying to stand up for what they believe in based on a ton of lies they have been told.

As far as your clip goes, it isn't about this bill. Obama did speak of a single payer health care system but he backed off that a long time ago. I saw someone mention propaganda above. That's exactly what this thread is. Propaganda, twisting things to further an agenda, an agenda that will deny health care to the poor and elderly of this country in order to keep the insurance companies at 8 billion dollar profit a year.

I'm posting this for those who are not familiar with the "connected at the hip" relationship between Obama, Brzezinski and MSNBC:


CONFIRMED ON MSNBC: OBAMA IS PUPPET
OF ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI, TRILATERAL REVANCHIST
www.msnbc.msn.com... [video]
Any lingering doubts about Obama's status as an abject puppet of Zbigniew Brzezinski and the Rockefeller Trilateral Commission ended this morning when the withered mummy of imperialism himself appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe to campaign for Obama, urged on by his own moronic daughter, Mika Brzezinski, an Obama groupie and sycophant.

Zbigniew, a low-level Polish aristocrat whose life has been devoted to hatred for Russia, lauded Obama for his 2002 speech opposing the Iraq war, saying that he himself was the source of Obama's arguments back then -- thus confirming Obama's long-term status as his puppet, which probably began in 1981-1983, when Obama was a student at Columbia
University, and Zbig was directing the anti-Russian institute. The aging revanchist showed all the misogynism of his szachta origins with a scurrilous attack on Sen. Clinton as a mere housewife, a Mamie Eisenhower running against a charismatic JFK played by Zbig's own Manchurian candidate, and as a woman whose foreign policy experience was worth as much as that of Zbig's own travel agent. Zbig, who was kept in the closet for many months during the Carter administration because of his hideous Dr. Strangelove persona, portrayed Obama as a peace candidate who wanted to end the Iraq war and usher in peace in the Middle East. Zbig is an infamous Cold War hawk who has managed to re-invent himself in the eyes of some
dupes by opposing the Iraq adventure, mainly because it is bad for imperialism.

Zbig did not mention that the reason he wants to downplay certain aspects of US aggression in the Middle East is to free up resources for use in the much bigger and more dangerous adventures which the Trilateral Commission is now directing. Zbig is the mastermind of the Kosovo secession under KLA terrorist auspices, a gambit against Serbia and Russia to prepare a coming Operation Barbarossa II against Moscow.
With the help of his son Mark Brzezinski, another top foreign policy controller of Obama, Zbig is also behind the new Euromissiles crisis involving US ABM installations in Poland. Zbig is the enforcer for the new CIA policy of killing Pakistanis (as "terrorists") without consulting the government of that country, a nuclear power twice as big as Iran.
Most dangerous of all, Zbig is the obvious mastermind of the massive destabilization of China now ongoing, starting with the CIA/MI-6 Tibet insurrection, which has placed the US on a collision course with China, a superpower with 1.4 billion people and thermonuclear weapons which can strike US cities, a far cry from the helpless and defenseless targets preferred by the neocons. It is an open secret that Zbig intends to
attempt a color revolution or CIA people power coup in China under the cover of the Beijing Olympics later this year. He may also make the Taiwan crisis explode. The dangers of these lunatic policies are infinitely worse than anything that could ever come out of the Middle East. Senator Jay Rockefeller and Trilateral/Bilderberger bo s Joseph Nye are also actively
campaigning for Obama. Nye is the theoretician of “soft power,” a new form of imperialist aggression based on economic warfare, subversion, deception, and people power coups. They want Obama to mobilize soft power to give a face lift to US imperialism. Brzezinski's goal is confrontation with the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the main world center for resistance to US-UK global domination. Anti-war activists are still fixated on Iran, but not Brzezinski -- his target is China, TWENTY times bigger than Iran, with ICBMs ready to launch, followed by Russia, the world's biggest nuclear power. Such confused activists need to focus on stopping the next
war -- the final global showdown with Pakistan, China, and Russia. That means rejecting Brzezinski's puppet candidate Obama.
