Joe Scarborough: Every Single Person Hosting the Network News or Sunday Shows, or Running Those Shows, Has Been a Liberal Democrat for the Last 50 Years

Pretty good rant.

In response to his question, "Name the one Republican who's hosted a network news show or a Sunday show for the last fifty years," one panelist offers "Tony Snow," who hosted... FoxNews, which is a Republican outfit because they let Republicans host their shows.

So what does that make the networks?

What follows isn't in the video, unfortunately, just in Newsbusters' transcript. Here, Scarborough offers the sort of tough questions a Republican would like to ask a Democrat -- but would never, ever be permitted to.

SCARBOROUGH: Do you know that at six months, a little baby inside a mother's womb has--and then I'd go into details about that. Do you really think you should stop a beating heart Mike Barnicle and murder the baby and then harvest its organs? Do you really think that's a good thing?

And the next question is, I'd do a set-up about how somebody was slaughtered and they didn't have a gun because they had a five-day waiting period.

Those are tough questions -- the abortion rape question is a tough question, but so are these, and yet, strangely enough, these never occur to George Stephanopolous, Diane Sawyer, or Anderson Cooper.

A longer video of the exchange is at the Free Beacon.

Incidentally, even at CNBC, staffers are questioning the choice of Harwood et al. to host the Republican debate.

In the wake of the debate debacle that’s delivered a gut punch to CNBC, many staffers at the business network are divided over whether "extremely biased" and "far left" correspondent and moderator John Harwood should have been allowed on stage.

"Everyone in the newsroom knows he’s extremely far left," a network insider told TheWrap about the prevailing opinion that pervaded the newsroom even before the debate.

Harwood is "not just extremely biased and partisan, but he's the worst kind who isn't self-aware that he is," the insider continued. "Blindness to that is what allowed him on the debate stage."

Definitely watch the rant below -- it's pretty good. He reveals that someone at his own network, NBC, told him he could never do a Sunday show for CBS, because, being a Republican, he was "too political."

26 Oh I was listening this morning and the interesting thing is that it was Mika who started it.

A panelist said they should get an objective journalist for the debates and she said "that's not possible".

And then Joe went off.

One guy tried a lame defense of the notion of simple journalistic objectivity, but Joe pounded him about why for fifty years no Sunday morning show host or evening anchor has ever voted in a Republican primary.

He also made interesting points about other kinds of diversity. Can't newsrooms recruit ex-cops, people who went to Community College, people from Manhattan, Kansas.

Here's a hint, bucky, what Republicans want is, get this, an unbiased media. Not an issue upon which to run.

I wouldn't care if there was a hostile debate so long as such hostility was directed at both sides.

I've been thinking a lot about accountability and reciprocity lately and how much of the tension in this country comes down to how there is no accountability for some people and some communities but there is no reciprocity to those on the other side.

There was a comment in an article over the weekend that Hillary is "too big to jail" over the blatant security breaches in her email. That is true. Everyone knows that is true. It's full bore nation of men not laws. Of course people are hostile about that. People should be.

I despair, I despair.

If it's an open secret that he's a far-lefty:
---Why has this not been pointed out and corrected before? He's not the host of an opinion show like Sharpton or Matthews.
---Why was he selected to moderate?

We know the answers to both, so why bother with "insider" talk that just confirms that this is exactly what CNBC wants in their supposed "impartial" newscasters.

50 Here's a little bit of the obvious: they didn't want balanced or truthful. They wanted bias and conflict.

The RNC has done this stuff for years. They are so desperate to get along with the MSM they let candidates take it up the squeakhole every elections cycle.

They left candidates up there to get clobbered and the only thing saving them were their own retorts.

The RNC and Priebus in particular are a bunch of incompetent clowns. Honestly, who else runs a GOTV that was a complete fraud and keeps their jobs?

That would be the same people who sent our candidates for slaughter before these useless network talking douchbags.

55 "Scarborough saying something that sounds like the truth.

The opening is there because CNBC was so blatant. The candidates - at least those who are good at catching the tides - immediately acted on the opportunity. Others, like Scarborough here, are exploiting the opening for all it is worth. The only thing that does not make sense is not exploiting the breakthrough with everything you have.

89 Have registered voters email questions to a debate website.. The RNC chair and the
DNC chair have to each agree on which questions will be asked. The
questions then appear on the candidates' laptops as they stand on
stage. Each candidate has two minutes to answer each question. They get
the gong if they go overtime. Cut off time for the debate is 90
minutes. When it's done everybody leaves the stage, goes to the
bathroom and goes home.

Wait, what?

"The worst kind"?

No. The entirely typical kind. America's snooze media is made up of endless ranks of Harwoods, all of whom continually self-congratulate themselves on their imagined status as being "objective" and "neutral" and "nonpartisan".

But more than that, why the hell is Harwood still even drawing a paycheck after having egregiously distorted and lied right in the middle of the debate?

Harwood had previously mischaracterized a candidate's position, got called on it, retracted the mischaracterization, advanced the same damn mischaracterization in mid-debate, got called on it again, had it pointed out that he had already had to retract once, and Harwood then laughed and said that no, he hadn't.

That's about a million light years beyond even the usual liberal hackery.

103 How does a question on fantasy football that gets smacked down hurt the GOP? The only one who was hurt by it was Jeb who treated it as if it was a light-hearted question and then proceeded to suggest that maybe FF should be regulated.

Posted by: SH at November 02, 2015 02:44 PM (gmeXX)

_______

Because the liberal idea of maybe having govt regulate fantasy football gets a foothold. It's like the question in 2012 about banning birth control. It was an idiotic question and the response was basically WTF is this question about? And yet still the idea that Republicans want to ban birth control was out there for the masses to consume.

106 I don't know who it was in that video, but the last thing one of those guys said was that if Repumpkins were hosts, it'd take away one of their talking point: i.e. that the MFM was biased.

When did that start happening? Every Pubbie I've ever heard just answers every ridiculous question without challenging it. They're still talking about last week's debate debacle because they finally, after all these years, actually challenged them for once.

109 @28 I love the excuse of oh but if there was an unbiased press than the Republicans lose running against the media!

-----------------------

And Joe points out how the issue of running against the media is ultimately a loser because it makes Republicans look like whiners.

What's funny to me in that video is the great glee that Halprin seems to get when he thinks he's found a Republican who meets Joe's criteria. A single Republican (and Joe argues that the names presented don't meet his criteria), and it means that Joe's whole argument is moot! The fact that one name alone still means that the field is widely biased is ignored.

Also, I hope Scarborough doesn't experience some kind of blowback for bringing up the comment from the unnamed NBC media executive.

even drawing a paycheck after having egregiously distorted and lied
right in the middle of the debate?

Harwood had previously
mischaracterized a candidate's position, got called on it, retracted the
mischaracterization, advanced the same damn mischaracterization in
mid-debate, got called on it again, had it pointed out that he had
already had to retract once, and Harwood then laughed and said that no,
he hadn't.

That's about a million light years beyond even the usual liberal hackery.

121 Regarding the rape issue...many, who go to a ED or report...or who even don't go to the ED...I think the "next day" pill or whatever it is called is available without a Rx. Even to very young girls without parental approval. Right?

So, guess what I am saying, is I am all for a pill for those raped. Those who choose to stay pregnant should put the baby up for adoption.

If this makes me "pro-choice" it is about all I am pro-choice about. I have had to think differently about a friend's baby who was anecephalic and chose abortion. In the same light I read of brave couples who have their baby knowing he/she will only live a few hours or days.

What has been interesting in the liberal debate is why the day after pill is not mentioned, yet all are on board for killing a 28 week baby. I worked in a newborn nursery/ NICU for many years. The babies I saw delivered, early, due to very rare maternal illness, were called "premature." So I do not fall for the "abortion due to maternal illness" excuse.

180 He/She who has the gold makes the rules. Nothing will happen, nothing will change. You still have the Christies and Kasich's who issued no complaint. They are hoping for some of that donor cash and a jump start.

Now that they've been challenged, I could see the door opening for more of it. The MFM only gets away with it because the interviewees allow it. They should be watching old clips of Andrew Breitbart for lessons on how to do it.

183 Halperin offered one Republican who actually had a prominent news anchor role - one I'd never heard of, who is now dead. Basically... nobody.

Meanwhile Stephanopolous is tweeting questioning whether the GOP leadership thinks that only Republican voters should do GOP debates.

Now, I guess he figures that's some kind of gotcha question but, its not a bad idea. I mean, previously, only Democrats have been allowed to do any debates, and they're doing all the Democrat debates.

Why shouldn't the GOP debates be done by GOP voters? After all, this is meant to help people in the party choose their candidate.

189 Questions I would ask if I moderated the Dem debate:

"Senator Sanders, Karl Marx defined 'socialism' as merely the transitional stage to full communism. In fact, none of the nations we in the West have traditionally dubbed 'communist' have ever self-defined that way -- instead, they themselves define their economic systems as 'socialist.' The USSR -- Union of Soviet Socialist Republics -- was socialist, as is North Korea today. As a self-identified socialist yourself, do you foresee the upcoming Sanders regime as the first step toward a full communist revolution in the United States, or do you own some secret Karl Marx manuscript in which he reveals it was all a joke?"

195 As has been pointed out a lot, the networks need these debates, and the candidates. Badly. The GOP debates have been so interesting and eventful that their ratings are through the roof. The Dem debates are a total yawn because it doesn't matter what they say, they've already picked their candidate.

So the candidates have tremendous leverage here. They can control the debates completely. Trump proved that by forcing CNBC to cut their length down.

And after these tax hikes destroy the economy and lead to another major depression, will you apologize to the American people for promising something that neither you nor anyone else has ever been able to provide, because basic economic theory and a century or real-world experiments have proven that your hackneyed theories are doomed to fail spectacularly?"

267 I'm fairly certain the RNC agreed to these debates not only because they (mistakenly) believe they have to play nice with the networks, but because they knew the moderators would go after the right candidates. They hate the outsider candidates as much as the MSM, so it was supposed to be a win-win.

Except....the Left never rewards subservience. They have no good will toward the GOP for playing ball -- they expect it. See the shock and outrage over the CNBC moderator treatment. How dare those uppity GOP candidates question out perception of impartiality?

I heard Chris Matthews on the WMAL Morning Show (radio in DC) in 2014 lecturing the conservative hosts on how they are partisans, but that he (Matthews) was a journalist and always plays it right down the middle. The hosts laughed at him but he sounded like he actually believed it.
-------------------------

He probably does. The problem is that he's in an environment in which he's surrounded by people who think like him, or are possibly even more liberal. That influences his thinking, and leads him to believe that his views are more or less moderate.

He claims to be a Democratic Socialist. Whenever he is asked to explain what that is, he just lists all the giveaway goodies he wants to grant the American working class.

Here's what a Democratic Socialist actually believes: Nobody owns anything. Everyone gets to vote on how and where and when goods and services are produced and distributed. It's insanely simplistic.

If we were a simple, agrarian society, I suppose it might be conceivable. All you're talking about is farm machinery, land, and labor. But consider how a company like Apple would work under this system.

347 So: I've been thinking today about just what the different candidates will want to spend their first year's political capital on? Figure, that's the time to strike, and where our concerns should really lie.

I don't believe it'll be immigration, because pretty much every one of these villains wants it, so there's no real cost to doing it in the first year.

If Hillary! gets it, I wouldn't be surprised if it's guns, simply because she'll have survived running on gun control and will think she can go all the way.

Bernie would be price control's of schools at the minimum, if I were to guess.

So, what about the Republican's? What big issue do any of them have that they'll actually burn their capital on? I, frankly, don't see what it'll be, but maybe one of you can clue me in?

348 Haven't watched Scarborough since the day after the Benghazi attack. The big story was that Romney criticized a statement made by the US Egyptian embassy that was unrelated to losing our Ambassador. Really. Romney was guilty of bad timing, and rather than explain it I guess it was easier to just rail on Romney and give the folks in charge a pass.

That's fine, in a rally around the flag kind of way, up to a point. But they were all slamming Romney for a correct statement that looked like something else because of the attack. How do you criticize that? And, worse, not even point any fingers at the administration? Last time I saw the show and I don't miss it in the least.

Look up "Halocracy," the most insane governance idea to comes along in many decades -- and it's currently trending as very hip and desirable among lefties.

Ignore the self-promotional jargon (they also rewrote their own wikipedia page) -- halocracy is basically socialism as an internal corporate governance structure. Some place are already trying it out. But what they WON'T tell you is that the workplace very quickly becomes a paranoia-laced "struggle session" where workers are not just encouraged to but ae REQUIRED to snitch on each other, and those accused must confess their inadequacies in front of a "circle" of accusers.

I know one woman who worked in a halocratic office and she said that it was strictly against corporate rules for any two employees to have a two-person one-on-one conversation! Because it was assumed you were either badmouthing someone else in the office, or plotting a reactionary counter-coup.

Yes, it's that bad.

368 Media liberals are so dominant in their field they can delude themselves into thinking they're mainstream and everyone else is the exception.

That's why you get things like Harwood, who is a far leftist and pretends he doesn't know it (probably believes it).

In my experience, a pretty large percentage of liberals share this delusion, calling themselves "middle of the road" or "all over the map" when they are, in fact, doctrinaire academic or media liberals.

That's one of the reasons they're so annoying, and also feeds the rest of their dishonesty - after all, if your core beliefs about yourself are really obvious lies, other lies are pretty trivial in comparison.

THUS, this rant may have been quite appropriate, but most media line-readers will not appreciate it, and certainly won't internalize it.

441 We like Asian women because they act like women. Plus they're diminutive which always brings out the "Protector" in a man.

And if they're Euro-Asian, they have nice knockers and a booty.

So double plus super good.

Plus Asian women look very young even when much older.

I think people are buying it up and taking the bullets out to reload in their .223's. But then I'm not a reloader so I don't even know if that's possible.

9mm is easy to find. Some of the other cals not so much.

For a while it looked like .22lr were gonna start becoming more plentiful but then something happened this year and bang! they're gone again.

It looks like the tail section coming off was initial issue as it was found far from crash. Pilot seems to have fought to get nose up and speed way down before literally falling from the sky. Which is impressive piloting. But then two sections of plane doused in aviation fuel and passengers, who may have survived (still in seat belts, which speaks to low forward speed at impact) got pretty much cremated.

So I've moved dial from bomb to maintenance issue.

.22 is showing up pretty regularly at about .08-.10 per round.

When I was in school, Asian women were for the most part the only women I had any contact with. One of the features of a STEM education. After a while you just get so that you think that is what women look like.
After I graduated and was working in a different state, I had a revelation of what seemed odd about the place -- one in every three or four people was not Asian the way it had been in school.

502 They're still missing the obvious and correct solution. During the primaries, debates should be moderated by people who best understand the policy platforms of the candidates. Generally, these would be people from the same party.

An objective moderator can ask a thousand objective questions, but if they're of no interest to the viewer and don't help separate the candidates from one another, they're worthless. "Lady and gentlemen, for each of you, given the recent spate of gun crime and mass shootings, do you think Hillary's right or Sanders is right?" Yeah, that's what I want Trump and Rubio and Cruz and Fiorina talking about.

No, they should be talking about their conservative (or in the case of Kasich: progressive) vision for America on a number of fronts that concern conservatives.

And the democrats can have Bolsheviks moderate their debates.

For the general election debates, one from each side in the panel together. Then the tough question will come out and the ability to choose between visions will be obvious; even to the commie dems who will always vote party before self, regardless of the candidate.
