Ok, this is not a Ron Paul thread
This is about MSNBC starting with Lawrence O'Donnell saying Ron Paul starts his LOSING campaign again.

The Last word with Lawrence O'Donnell is a commentary show, however to just insult someone going for presidency is wrong unethical and then he calls Rand Paul demented?

A Brand new low for MSNBC, this is just unbelievable

First of all this idiot said Lawrence O'Donnell "Free Healthcare" many times, Free?
Healthcare is free? Money grows on trees, isn't that ignorance?

In any case, this was just offensive.

U.S Political Madness

Well they had to replace Olbermann's nutty BS with something right?

Lawrence O'Donnell makes his living demagoguing issues and insulting
anyone who isn't a hardcore socialist.

He's completely anti-freedom.

Questioned his parenting skills?

Dr Ron Paul has managed to raise one of his sons to become a United States Senator. What have your kids achieved, Mr O'Donnell ?

Yeah, but I personally think Rachel, while I believe she is wrong more often than not, is at LEAST somewhat civilized. Olbermann and O'Donnell are rude, the demonize their opposition in ways I have never heard out of Maddow before.

Ed Schultz is like that too. He thinks cheating in elections is the best way to win against the opposition, the will of the people be damned:

The anchors of most major news networks,are just glorified Jerry Springers. Thats Just my opinion.I grew up on the likes of Peter Jennings,Walter Cronkite,Harry Reasoner,David Brinkley,etc.......The days of news,and political opinion,are blurred beyond belief (yes,three words starting with B ).
Most media has an agenda nowadays,MSNBC is no different. Back in the day,RESPECT was given to those who served our country,especially in the media. When someone talked about a Senator,Governor,it wasnt opinion. It was fact.It was news. You wont get that with the likes of Lawrence O'Donnell. You wont get that with the likes of Bill O'reilly either. The agenda is in full swing,and has been that way for the last 20 years. Your a smart guy,you know this guy wants to get under your skin,by way of sly remarks,innuendo,etc. Thats just his style. Dont give in........

Meh, these guys don't get under my skin.

But I am aware of their epic stupidity and lack of manners and decorum.
I am keenly aware of their demagogic behavior, and I usually take it with a grain of salt.

What gets under my skin are the moronic sheeple that listen to them. These animated ficus plants may or may not believe what they say, but every bit of filth that they spew is followed by the general "I can't think for myself please do it for me" public nodding like bobble-heads.

More like one hundred... well ninety

Yes TV was much more polite 30 years ago. I gave up watching it after Watergate.

Here is the lowdown on the MSM:

U.S. Congressional Record February 9, 1917: J.P. Morgan interests bought 25 of America's leading newspapers, and inserted their own editors, in order to control the media.

JP Morgan: Our next big media player? (April 13, 2010) JP Morgan controls 54 U.S. daily newspapers,and owns 31 television stations.

Media Conglomerates, Mergers, Concentration of Ownership:

Who controls the media

Interlocking Directorates
Media corporations share members of the board of directors with a variety of other large corporations, including banks, investment companies, oil companies, health care and pharmaceutical companies and technology companies. This list shows board interlocks for the following major media interests:

If you do as I did and start googling the big wigs in charge of MSM you will find many are connected/worked for the banks!!!

For example MSNBC...

NOTE: GE as the world's second largest company after JPMorgan Chase

Comcast Corporation (Nasdaq: CMCSA; CMCSK) and General Electric (NYSE: GE) yesterday closed their transaction to create a joint venture...

The new company is 51 percent owned by Comcast, 49 percent owned by GE,...

J.P. Morgan was lead financial advisor to GE with Goldman Sachs and Citi acting as co-advisors....

JP Morgan and GE have a long history together.

Then there is GE Chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt:

President Barack Obama announced Friday that General Electric (GE) Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Immelt will chair the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness.

The new council was to replace the Economic Recovery Advisory Board...

...Immelt, who will now have the president’s ear in an advisory role, has consistently supported the same failed trade policies that have cost America millions of jobs. As the leader of one of the world’s largest companies, he has been at the forefront of the outsourcing movement.

“You would have difficulty finding a company that has outsourced more jobs and closed more American factories than GE,” Scott Paul, Executive Director of the Alliance for American Manufacturing writes. “While they have slashed their American workforce to fewer than 150,000, GE has dramatically expanded its global presence, now employing over 300,000 workers worldwide.”

India is exciting for American businessmen today: Jeffrey Immelt, Chairman & CEO, GE

ET Now caught up with Jeffrey Immelt, Chairman & CEO, GE, for his views on a number of issues, including the significance of 200 American CEOs landing on Indian soil, outsourcing and GE's plans for India.


What's the significance of 200 American CEOs landing on Indian soil, exploring the big Indian market once again?

...I am a globalist. So I am a big believer that basically it is a win-win game of global trade. But strategically for the United States, a great relationship with India is a real prerequisite and very important and I believe the President sees it the same way.

If you were to think as American Inc and not just GE's head, what is it that American CEOs today can give India?

The biggest need that India has from an economic standpoint is infrastructure. That is something that the United States and companies like GE can really invest in - both in technology and also in financing and capital markets and things like that. In so far as that is the main trigger that can really sustain the growth in India, we can offer that.

Beyond that, we are good partners. The American business people, America Inc, have been good partners to global business leaders for generations....

GE is a model for what’s wrong with corporate America these days, writes Shahien Nasiripour at The Huffington Post. It’s a company “that’s hoarding cash, sending jobs overseas, relying on taxpayer bailouts and paying less taxes than envisioned.”

On the issue of shipping jobs overseas, GE’s actions are particularly glaring. The company regularly tops the list of transnational corporations ranked by the size of their foreign asset holdings, as it receives more of its revenues and profits from abroad than from its U.S. operations. Also, the majority of its 304,000 employees are based overseas.

Between 2005 and 2009, the U.S. employee share of GE’s total workforce dropped from 51% to 44%. In 2009 and 2010, GE shuttered 28 manufacturing plants in the U.S.

Dave Lindorff at This Can’t Be Happening says GE “is not an American company. It is a foreign company that happens to be headquartered in the U.S.”

The other player is Stephen B. Burke Chief Operating Officer, Comcast Corporation President, Comcast Cable Communications NOT Comcast Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brian L. Roberts.

...Before joining Comcast, Mr. Burke served with The Walt Disney Company as President of ABC Broadcasting.... Mr. Burke serves on the Board of Directors for Berkshire Hathaway Inc. and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co....

...Michael J. Angelakis serves as Chief Financial Officer for Comcast Corporation...

Prior to joining Comcast in 2007, Mr. Angelakis served as Managing Director and as a member of the Management and Investment Committees of Providence Equity Partners, one of the leading private equity firms investing in communications and media companies around the world. Before joining Providence Equity Partners in 1999, Mr. Angelakis was President and Chief Executive Officer of State Cable TV Corporation and Aurora Telecommunications, LLC. He also served as Vice President at Manufacturers Hanover Trust Company in New York, where he oversaw one of the bank’s media and communications portfolios. Additionally, Mr. Angelakis spent several years in London developing Manufacturers Hanover’s acquisition finance and merchant banking activities throughout Western Europe....

Jeff Shell serves as President of Comcast Programming Group for Comcast Corporation...

Prior to joining Comcast, Mr. Shell was CEO of Gemstar TV Guide International where he successfully navigated Gemstar through a number of legal and operational challenges. Before joining Gemstar, Shell held a number of positions within News Corporation including President of the FOX Cable Networks Group, where he oversaw the operations of FOX’s entertainment and sports cable programming businesses including FOX Sports Net, FX and the National Geographic Channel. Shell also worked in the Strategic Planning Group at the Walt Disney Company and at Salomon Brothers Inc....

Salomon Brothers was a bulge bracket, Wall Street investment bank.... the investment banking operations of Citigroup

BANKSTERS, BANKSTERS EVERYWHERE and the Liberals (and Conservatives) believe these guys???

I especially love that the last guy used to work for FOX as well as Citi group...
