GOP Stupidly Walks Into Yet Another MSM Meat Grinder – CNBC’s Mission Accomplished


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.

About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
