Don't normally do this, but damn, I'm sick of post-Mo Joe MSNBC pushing the 'Dems in disarray' tosh

The oh-so-tiresome 'radical, wild-eyed far lefties versus milquetoast, uninspiring centrists' angst-ridden dialectical pablum. It is straight up RW framing. FUCK them!

I think it applies to all cable tv.

18. Thanks, and I turned it off and went out for a run in the large park

behind our flat. Feel loads better, and this is probably the last week here before the temperature starts to drop a lot. It is 28į C and sunny with puffy white clouds, so a glorious late summer Stockholm day. Going sailing for a bit of a sunset sea picnic with a few friends when wifey gets home soon.

Cheers

Cel <3

2. I'm watching MSNBC right now and Hallie Jackson's pushing it.

Brian Williams was pushing it last night. They need to manufacture drama for clicks.

Morning talk shows are in disarray.

What's new!

7. Sounds like their heads are in their asses

I've heard nothing but stellar reviews of convention and solid plans Joe has to fix all that chumputin has damaged!

MSNBC needs to get rid of morning shitbags. How about a climate specialist show? Mind boggling every station doesn't do this.

15. Enlarge upon your idea. Develop it.

I suggest you enlarge upon your idea and move it out beyond tv and cable. These outfits are going to use the same techniques to report on climate and they will place us in danger for ratings and profit just as they do now.

We. Are on the death march and they they are not going to sacrifice themselves for our survival.

8. Me too

We are FAR from that. Very united this year - and with a little help from GOPers who are disgusted and embarrassed by the state of our country . . . if they can hold their noses -

Then every moderate left to far left voter can enthusiastically vote for Biden/Harris.

When George Will is saying he can vote ONE time for a Democratic Party President - that means he sees more value in us - than he does in them.

Us. All of Us. Our big tent, our activists, our working poor, our diversity of ideology (AOC to Manchin) etc. etc.

9. I said this in another thread - the "respected" media is clinging to the

"Trump-sized" ratings they've enjoyed over the last 5 years like grim death, and will do anything to push the "Dems in disarray" meme in order to keep things as close as possible. They may very well have the power to push Chump over the line.

10. Might you consider not watching. It is an addiction.

I see otherwise intelligent people being jerked around by this creepy propaganda show . Elated one day ;depressed and angry the next.

It is a ratings driven show and. Is not there to inform or impart knowledge. It is there to manipulate you emotions.

I am like this with D.U. now too, just check for the main ludicrous BS of the day.

Less is now MORE?

I watched and saw nothing negative in their coverage of the Convention.

13. IKR?

I'm old but I can think for myself. I take what's good and leave aside anything I feel is suspect but on the whole I thing the coverage has been fair.

As a functioning adult, I know I am not going to be pleased with everything I encounter on the political shows.

19. Wow, there must be two versions of that show.

Every time I turn it on, every host and every guest are giving Rump and the republicans a major scalding! If it was an animated version, they would be beating him with bats and clubs and Mika would be dressed as little yellow Tweety bird, handing Rump a stick of dynamite as he reaches his claws for her.

But apparently there is another version that I havenít seen.

20. Time to employ the "don't watch" strategy.

I suppose you could also write the network and do your complaining directly? Might be useful, especially if many more did so as well.

I'm so glad we are not hearing about democratic disfunction like we'd normally be hearing as the networks seem to love that narrative but tRump has appeared to have united the democratic party, so thank him for that.

22. Same here. I'm all for casting a critical eye but the problem is trump, not Democrats.

"In fidelity and gratitude to a mass peoples' movement working to establish 21st century social, economic, and human rights Ė including guaranteed health care, higher education, living wages, and labor rights for all people in the United States."
Ė @AOC (last night, 1-minute)


If one is a democrat of any stripe, the target is trump and the GOP ó not progressives or centrists. And itís good to remember that those who drive wedges arenít building bridges ó which seems to be a theme Iíve been hearing from Joe Biden.

I suspect we should all be talking to our friends, neighbors and families about the peril we face. Thatís more powerful than TV. Lastly, I appreciate your posts. Please donít censor yourself here.

I yield the balance of my time...
