Supplemental: What you can read in the New York Times!

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2014

Maddow versus the world:
You can read things in the New York Times you won’t likely see on TV.

Yesterday morning, on the front page, a news report carried this headline: “Immigration Has President Altering Stand.”

Michael Spear reported the various times in recent years when Obama has said that he can’t legally go where he now seems to be going on immigration.

What are the merits of this case? We aren’t sure—and you won’t likely see that explored on The One True Liberal Channel.

That was yesterday’s New York Times. In this morning’s New York Times, Ashley Parker performs a twofer.

On page A15, she offers a lengthy report under this headline: “In Immigration Fight, Republicans Explore Alternatives to a Shutdown.”

Parker quotes a string of Republican office-holder and machers who are arguing against a government shutdown in response to Obama’s upcoming moves on immigration. In Liberal Land, we’re still being told, in various ways, that the Fox News Channel is beating the drum in search of a quickie impeachment.

Out on page A1, Parker goes a bit further. She co-authors a lengthy report about yesterday’s vote on the Keystone pipeline.

This is where Maddow comes in.

Last night, for at least the third time, Maddow opened her program with a shrieking segment about the lunacy of allowing yesterday’s vote on the pipeline. She continued to wail and moan about the way the Democrats aren’t going to rush the nomination of Loretta Lynch through the lame-duck session.

Maddow’s angst was exhaustive last night, as was her isolation from the rest of the world. To all appearances, she had interviewed no one about these matters; she had spoken to no one. She gave no indication that anyone on her staff had spoken to anyone about the matters under review.

Instead, Our Own Rhodes Scholar just wailed away, damning the Democrats all to Hell for their wayward conduct.

We would have quoted from this meltdown, except MSNBC hasn’t gotten around to transcribing it yet. Other news channel transcribe in good time. The One True Liberal Channel does nothing in regular fashion.

If you can stand it, go ahead: watch Maddow’s opening segment last night. After that, read Parker’s front-page report.

(Warning! Maddow’s segment has been broken into three parts, the better to make you watch three commercials with. The videotape starts here.)

Increasingly, the Maddow show is a solipsistic banshee scream from a hyperbaric chamber. Increasingly, “the liberal world” is a veil of tears, much as the world of the Fox News Channel has been for these many years.

Increasingly, it’s tribal narrative all the way down; it’s a culture of bumper stickers. We liberals put Maddow on each night to learn the words to ours.

    1. I am joes candra, I promise to share this testimony all over the world once my boyfriend return back to me, and today with all due respect i want to thank DR.OSAUYI for bringing joy and happiness to my relationship and my family. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is real and genuine. I never believed in any of these things until i loosed my boyfriend, I required help until i found a grate spell caster, And he cast a love spell for me, and he assured me that I will get my boyfriend back in two days after the spell has been cast. Three days later, my phone rang, and so shockingly, it was my boyfriend who has not called me for past 6 years now, and made an apology for the heart break, and told me that he is ready to be my back bone till the rest of his life with me. DR.OSAUYI released him up to know how much i loved and wanted him. And opened his eyes to picture how much we have share together. As I`m writing this testimony right now I`m the most happiest girl on earth and me and my boyfriend is living a happy life and our love is now stronger than how it were even before our break up. So that`s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe.All thanks goes to DR.OSAUYI for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in any situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too.

  2. Landrieu is her angst. Why? I have no idea. She's been a blue fly on shit for most of her career. When they complain dems ran her over with a truck, I say back up, just to be sure. She can go suck on some shale.

    1. Yes, it is much better if she is replaced with a Republican who will caucus with the opposition and vote Republican on all issues, including who gets elected to leadership positions in congress.

    2. A distinction without a viable difference.

    3. The conservative world of FNC is neither a vale or veil of tears. Of course watching Megyn Kelly, Kimberly Ann Guilfoyle, & Martha Bowes MacCallum might make you believe you have gone to heaven.

    4. Imagining what heaven may be like could be as close as ye get, young cicero!

      Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

      But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

      And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.

    5. cicero,

      Lucky for you then that this type of television was banned in 1971.

      So was this type of commercial in the 70's and it didn't require a surgeon general warning either.

    8. cicero, be advised.

      He went up from there to Bethel, and while he was going up on the way, some small boys came out of the city and jeered at him, saying, “Go up, you baldhead! Go up, you baldhead!” And he turned around, and when he saw them, he cursed them in the name of the Lord. And two she-bears came out of the woods and tore forty-two of the boys. From there he went on to Mount Carmel, and from there he returned to Samaria.

    9. cicero @ 4:49 PM,

      Time says tomato, The Huffington Post says tomahto. Me, I'm categorically glad that I stopped smoking thirty years ago but still have mixed feelings about my subsequent decision to go with an electric razor.

    10. The new Mad Men could take a lesson from those catchy smoke commercials. The preponderance of noisome commercials over the last 20 years makes one wonder what did Americans do to Madison Avenue to deserve this inhumane treatment.

    11. "She's been a blue fly on shit for most of her career." No, she's the shit UNDER the fly.

  3. The late Daniel Moynihan called it the "Iron Law of Emulation."

    Defined as: groups in opposition over time begin to resemble one another.

    Banshees to my left, solipsists to my right. Stuck in the middle with, er, Bob.

  4. In this way, the Queen of Snark retains her control of a devolving empire.

    Technically, Maddow is bright.

    And thus far her prediction about the lame duck session is right.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, it isn't right. There is no evidence that pursuing Lynch's confirmation would be better than using the session for other purposes.

      Delete
    2. Her prediction was only that they would try and do the pipeline vote and not confirm the nominee.
      Value judgements have nothing to do with it.

      Delete
    3. They said that was what they were planning to do, so how is that her prediction?

  5. She's not Yale, but she's Ivy. She might have made 30 but she's still youngish. And she writes for the New York Times.

    Sorry Howler. Not buying a word or twosome from Ashley Parker.

    3. Yes, Somerby and Maddow are just the same -- NOT

      Delete
    4. We think a compare-and-contrast between Bob and the Queen of Snarkness is in order. Unfortunately, we don't have to time to do it ourselves. But we invite others to do so. Some people might find it most illuminating.

      Delete
    5. Before getting to compare and contrast, which would require a wiring, bolt, and screw diagram for each model, @ 10:24 needs a response for the adult commentary offered.

      To say Somerby shrieks like Maddow does not constitute saying they are just they same. One allegedly shrieks on television. The other clearly shrieks in writing.

      Delete
    6. Somerby doesn't shriek.

  7. Thank you Bob, for another great post. I agree that we the people are not that smart. It's weird.

  9. I never use to believe in spell casting until i met Great Baba a powerful spell caster who helped me to be a happy person again. My name is Danny Rose and i reside in USA. After 4 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids to suffer. I felt like my life was about to end and i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a Great spell caster called Great Baba which i met online on one faithful day when I was browsing through the internet, i came across a lot of testimonies about this particular Great spell caster how he has helped so many people. he has helped people to bring back their Ex lover, some testified that he restores womb, cure cancer and other sickness, and so on. I also came across a testimony, it was about a woman called Amanda, she testified about how his spell made her to be pregnant after so many years of bareness and at the end of her testimony she dropped Great Baba's email address. After reading all these, i decided to give it a try and i contacted him and explained my problem to him and he assured me that in less than 48 hours, my husband will call me and beg for forgiveness but i thought it will not work. When he had finished casting the spell, the next day my husband called me and he was begging for forgiveness just as Great Baba said. This is not brain washing and after the spell has been cast, i realized that my husband love me like never before and the spell caster opened him up to know how much i love him and how much love we need to share. We are even happier now than before. Great Baba is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and a genuine spell caster to solve all your problems contact Great Baba now on Highersolutiontemple@yahoo.com and just visit GREATBABAOFSOLUTION.blogspot.com and see so many people testifying about his good and wonderful work. Just contact him and he will help you solve all your problems. Once again thank you Great Baba for your good deeds.

  13. Am Karen Tanya from Scotland. I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr. ogboni by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48 hours my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr.ogboni . So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.ogboni for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too. ogbonispelitemple1@gmail.com
