Showing posts with the label MSNBC

Mark Halperin was a creep with an NBC journalist as late as last year

Just watched Ali Velshi and Stephanie Ruhle on MSNBC cover the Mark Halperin 'CNN story' about him sexually harassing his female colleagues at ABC where he left in 2007. Very cleverly put, but that harassment did not stop when he left ABC. I actually witnessed him thrust himself against one of his MSNBC colleagues at a political rally in New York City in April last year - 2016. Halperin has now been suspended by NBC News. Good. What he should do is be truthful about the fact that he never stopped acting like a creep towards the younger reporters in his surroundings. I have contacted the reporter in question directly providing some details to her about what I witnessed. Unless she is comfortable coming forward with it, however, I will not mention her name publicly. These creepy assholes need to stop their unwanted advances and act professionally not only on screen, but also off screen. Mrs PP

Bernie Sanders inspired millions of people to get off their sofas, turn off their TVs and join the political revolution in the streets and on social media, but he did not educate the younger ones to what it would be really like if they did not vote for Hillary Clinton in the general elections. There are two main points on this: 1) Sanders, who used to communicate with his grassroots' people and donors via email during the primaries, somehow did not think that explaining why he was endorsing Clinton to his supporters directly by email would be a big deal (this happened a few days before the Democratic Convention in July); 2) He forgot to educate the ones with less political experience on the difference between getting all hopped up during a primary and toning it down once your candidate does not get the nomination. It was like being in fifth gear and being asked to drop down to first all of a sudden. You're going to have to deal with the physical discomfort of that sudden chan

There are two main points on this: 1) Sanders, who used to communicate with his grassroots' people and donors via email during the primaries, somehow did not think that explaining why he was endorsing Clinton to his supporters directly by email back in July (a few days before the Convention); 2) He forgot to educate the ones with less political experience that there is a difference between getting all hopped up during a primary and toning it down once your candidate does not get the nomination. I'd put myself in that category (of the uneducated 'young' people) and I am 45. For months, I'd learned that no matter what the media said about what Sen. Sanders might do, he would

Bernie Sanders lost the FBI primary

This is a sentence that was first coined by Donald Trump, but that has been used by other mainstream journalists - for ex. Chuck Todd. Well, they like Trump on NBC and MSNBC, don't they. They have been featuring him non-stop during the primaries and then got all surprised when he won by a huge margin. Bernie Sanders was also booed by House Democrats earlier today. As THIS ARTICLE elucidates, he refused to back down, concede or endorse Clinton and he was on the receiving end of some criticism from the rest of the blue quadrupedal, ruminant mammals in Congress. Chuck Todd, above, even went insofar as to mention that Sanders was close to conceding to and endorsing Clinton. Group delusions... Mrs PP
