I’m with Rush Limbaugh on this one. And I don’t listen to Limbaugh much these days. He’s still carrying water for the Bush family. The Bush family has done irreparable damage to the nation.
However, while driving to meet my brother for lunch, I did catch just a few minutes of Limbaugh’s show late this morning. Limbaugh’s thrust during the brief segment I heard was that, despite all the feigned outrage by the press corps, the TV stations and anyone else who didn’t like the way the CNBC team (photo above: CNN) did business during the presidential debate (which I did not watch or listen to) on the evening of October 28, it’s a pretty sure bet that no one at CNBC feels any remorse or shame at their participation in yet another vicious, biased ambush of the GOP candidates.
The current drama in the media today is – well, dramatic. The GOP is dumping NBC. It’s a little late for that, Mr. Priebus. Fact is, you never should have agreed to any major media people, including Megyn Kelly and the FoxNews team, running anything.
Why, you may be asking?
Because the American Press Corps is nearly 100% Democrat and has an institutional bias against the GOP. Personally, I’m just as fed up with both the GOP and the Democrats. But I don’t pretend to be unbiased, like the press corps does. I lean hard to the right and I’m an unaffiliated registered voter. Because, with a couple of exceptions, it’s really impossible to tell the Democrat and Republican candidates’ positions apart.
Today’s CNN headline describes the CNBC staff as “shell-shocked” on their flight home from the debate, because of the booing from the audience and the initial media reports. I don’t believe it. My money says that none of them felt any shame. I’d bet a month’s pay on that. Not for one second did they lose any sleep. It was mission accomplished. They went in there to eviscerate and demean all of the GOP candidates and they did it. Here’s a part of CNN’s report:
For the CNBC employees who boarded a charter plane right after Wednesday’s bruising GOP debate, the redeye flight was physically smooth but emotionally turbulent.
People were exhausted, but also rattled and worried.
“We were shell-shocked,” one source said.
The poor reviews were piling up — declaring CNBC the biggest loser of the night — and the moderators Carl Quintanilla and Becky Quick knew more would be published by the time the flight landed in New York.
So for some flyers, it was a sleepless night. But there was some laughter and some liquor to lighten the mood — and some speculation about how high the ratings would be…
And the ratings were very high. A lot of people watched the assault. Read the entire report.
