I tried to watch Morning Joe this morning, but it started out so predictable and shamelessly biased I became sick to my stomach. I've realized for a long time that major US media sources are biased, but the arrogance with which they misrepresent facts with impunity is still startling and maddening. You would think that enough people of integrity would be left in media to fight against the bias, but apparently there is no integrity left in MSM.
As predicted, Democrat-biased media proclaimed Obama the victor. Morning Joe, including Scarborough, proclaimed Obama the victor, and Mark Halperin went so far as to say Romney's botched attack on the Libya tragedy takes the issue off the table. Incredible, simply incredible. So, after Obama and Crowley ganged up on Romney, with Crowley pulling the transcript at Obama's command, Crowley having the transcript at her fingertips, Obama and Crowley went on to say that Obama called the Libyan attack on Ambassador Stevens a terrorist act from the start. This is a blatant lie, and Halperin is saying that because Romney wasn't able to fully reveal it as a lie, because Crowley, the moderator, and Obama blocked him, the issue is off the table -- so, media will not pursue it? Journalists will not call it a lie? Halperin will not pursue it as an issue? Morning Joe will not pursue it as an issue? The President of the US lies to tens of millions of Americans on national TV, and because media sources say he wiggled out of it, he gets debate points and it becomes a non-issue! This is how low media has sunk. This is pathetic.
Everyone at MSNBC was crowing about Obama dominating the debate. Mika on Morning Joe started out talking about how Romney was intimidated, and Joe Scarborough criticized Romney for being tough with Crowley because she is a woman and with Obama because respect should be shown to a President. What? Why should anyone show respect to a President who disrepects the office and shows no respect for the intelligence of the American people? And why does the fact that Monica Crowley is A woman have anything to do with how tough Romney reacted to her? Most of us paying attention who aren't lackeys for Obama predicted media would call this for Obama no matter what, but this is surreal.
Perhaps Morning Joe will redeem itself later in the show, but the way it started prevented this viewer from finding out. A new low for Morning Joe.
