Supplemental: We caught a bit of Trump last night too!

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2015

Our Own Liberal Channel promotes him:
Like Kevin Drum, we caught a bit of Candidate Trump last night too.

We were struck by the same part of Trump’s oration which Drum cites today. Here’s a slightly longer chunk of the hopeful's remarks:
TRUMP (9/14/15): I got a call from the writer from the New York Times. I have great respect for the New York Times. Called up—

I know. I hear that. It’s OK. It’s a good story, not a bad story.

And he said, “Could I can ask you a question?” I said, “What?” Very powerful writer, actually.

He said, “How does it feel?” I said, “How does what feel?”

He said, “What you’ve done has never ever been done before. You’ve dominated, taking over the polls.”

You know, on television, on Fox and CNN, they call it “all Trump all the time.” Can you believe it? “All Trump all the time.”

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

And by the way, their ratings are through the roof. If they weren’t, they wouldn’t put me on.

I’ll be honest with you. It’s a simple formula in entertainment and television. If you get good ratings—

If you get good ratings—and these aren’t good, these are monster—then you’ll be on all the time,
even if you have nothing to say.

If you come up with a cure for a major, major, horrendous disease and if you don’t get ratings, they won’t bother even reporting it. It’s a very simple business—very simple.

So, we’ve gone on, we’ve had a lot of fun, and now it’s time to really start, because this is going to happen, I’m telling you...
“If you get good ratings, you’ll be on all the time, even if you have nothing to say?”

Every word seems to be true. We know that because we saw Trump giving his speech on MSNBC, live, on the Chris Hayes program.

Trump had pretty much nothing to say, but MSNBC aired his speech through the bulk of Hayes’ program. We assume the suits did that because Trump gives them good ratings. This lets them pay the massive salaries they funnel to Maddow and Hayes, in part for their obedience in the face of such decisions.

On and on and on and on Trump went on last night’s program. Based on the Hayes transcript, Trump’s speech ate more than half of last evening’s show. At that point, Hayes began discussing the speech with a succession of pundits.

“Well, that’s Donald Trump speaking in Dallas,” Hayes finally said as he broke in on the speech, more than halfway through his program.

“He is giving his fairly standard stump speech,” Hayes then said, failing to explain why the same old standard stump speech had been given more than half his program.

Candidate Trump commandeered the Hayes program last night. The final segment of the program made this decision even more striking and poignant.

With six minutes left to go in the hour, Hayes was finally allowed to discuss a second event, an event he described as “the most interesting campaign event of this season, all season.”

The event had happened that very same day! After Candidate Trump was given almost his entire program, Hayes was finally allowed to spend his final six minutes on it:
HAYES (9/14/15): Happening live right now, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders speaking in front of what would be considered for him a friendly crowd at the Prince William County Fairgrounds in Manassas, Virginia.

We’ll keep our eye on that.

But for my money, the most interesting campaign event of this season, all season, happened earlier today when Sanders, who spent most of his political career as a self-described socialist, went to Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia...
We tend to agree with Hayes’ assessment of the Sanders event at Liberty. But his corporate owners had bills to pay, and they call the shots in the end.

Rarely are these corporate decisions so open and obvious at The One True Liberal Channel. But the things you hear on this channel, and the things you don’t get to hear, are presumably often decided by players behind the scenes.

It was “all Trump [almost] all the time” on the Hayes program last night! Essentially, Trump had nothing to say, but the corporate owners gave him oodles of time, presumably for the very reasons he described in Dallas.

To watch Hayes discuss the Sanders event, you can just click here. Despite Hayes’ judgment about this event, you’ll be watching the last six minutes of his hour-long program.

By the way:

If Candidate Sanders finds the cure for a major horrendous disease, will the suits at MSNBC put him on?

Not necessarily, no! The cable channel’s fiery hosts are likely to play along. On the brighter side, they’ll find some piddle to make us believe they’re very much On Our Side.

  3. Good day for Bob Somerby!

    Two leading experts confrim his memes!!

    Michael Moore on the intellectual and/or moral squalor of our culture.

    Donald Trump on ratings being the driver of media coverage.

    What I don't get is how Rachel Maddow thinks covering all those losers
    helps her ratings. Wait. Maybe it doesn't matter what she thinks. Presumably what we see if often decided by players behind the scenes.

    It is time for commenters to own their thoughts
    How about no more "Anonymous" comments.
    Full names at least

    1. Anonymous comments make it possible for FOB's to blame KZ for everything. And Rachel Maddow for KZ.

      BTW, Bob doesn't read his comments. IMHO. And why should he? They are a bunch of anonymous whiners and really just only one person. Who studies have shown is mentally ill.

  8. Trump has no less to say than any of the other candidates, and his popularity is the top story of the campaign right now.

  9. "Like Kevin Drum, we caught a bit of Candidate Trump last night too."
    Bob Somerby

    Let's compare the cat blogger to the blogger with the imaginary analysts when they both catch a bit of the Trump.

    Both mention the part of Trump's speech where he applauds himself for getting so much TV coverage.

    Bob mentioned Trump had nothing to say but MAddow and Hayes get "massive salaries."

    Drum noted "Trump got plenty of cheers for all his usual shoutouts, but by far the biggest cheer came when he promised to toss out every illegal immigrant within his first 18 months."

    I'm glad Bob covers what is really important.

  10. Last night, Chris Matthews had Bill Maher on his Hardball show, and Maher adroitly asked Matthews to "look in the mirror" regarding the way MSNBC has been covering Trump.

    Look at the bullshit, disingenuous multiple incoherent and illogical responses from Chris Matthews, grinning all the way to the bank.


    ***********************
    MAHER: Well, also, we have to look a little bit in the mirror on this one,

    Chris. Your network covered it from beginning end to last night.

    MATTHEWS: Sure did.

    MAHER: Why? Why? Why are you doing that? It`s a little bit of a self-
    fulfilling--

    MATTHEWS: Because people are in the -- for the same reason -- yes, well,
    the same reason people went out to see him knowing he`d be on TV. So, they
    will go see him knowing he`s on TV. They still make the effort to go see
    him.

    MAHER: But why cover it like he`s Churchill giving an important speech?

    Have you listened to these speeches? Trump is always saying, other
    countries are laughing at us. This is why they`re laughing at us, because
    of what he says and how we are taking it seriously. I mean, he talks about
    how we shouldn`t have teleprompters.

    Please let`s bring back teleprompters, because these are just the brain
    farts, the stream of conscious ramblings of a guy who obviously has, over
    the course of his life, breathed in too much construction debris.

    It just goes from bragging point to something else he thought of on the
    spur of the moment. It`s not even a speech. And yet people, I think what
    they`re responding to is this message that the country has been losing,
    which is insane, because we`re not losing. We`re winning. And we have to
    restore America to what, what it was before Obama came along?

    So we should be -- we should be restoring America back to where we had 10
    percent unemployment and the stock market was 1,000 points lower? Who is
    beating us? China? They`re beating us? Why? Because their kids make our
    iPhones? Japan? They have been in a recession for like three decades.
    Mexico?

    I mean, this is insane. We`re the only country that did well after the
    financial collapse.

    MATTHEWS: All that may be true, and I think it is, but I think the reason
    -- to answer your question why I put him on, why we keep him on, on most
    networks, is because we`re waiting to see how long it`s going to last.

    It`s almost like a character on "Survivor." How long -- on the old "Twenty
    One," Charles Van Doren. How long can Herb Stempel survive? How long can
    he keep going with new material every minute? Sooner or later, he is going
    to run out of material and start repeating himself. He will begin to
    sweat.

    I`m waiting for that. I think that is the show we`re watching. How long
    can he do this thing?

I wanna tell you that you need not to worry because i have a good news for those out there that are faced or similar to such situation because there is always a hope and a solution to all problem. There is a great spell caster called Dr Miracle who can really solve all your problems. Getting my lover back is what i can't imagine but when I was losing Mike, I needed help and somewhere to turn badly but my Cousin told me about this spell caster who also helped her on the internet. I thought it won't work but i just tried to give this man a chance and i ordered a LOVE SPELL. Two days later, my phone rang. Mike was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, This is truly miraculous and the spell caster opened him up to know how much I love and needs him. This Spell Casting isn’t brainwashing, but he opened up his eyes to know how much love we have to share together. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try him because he will help you and make things be the way it ought to be. If you have such problem or similar to this, please contact him on his email: homeoflightandsolution@yahoo.com thank you Dr Miracle in fact you are miraculous and may your gods ever reward you for your good deeds..

  17. After being in relationship with morgan for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: drbhabumenrespellhome@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything .I CAN NEVER STOP TALKING ABOUT YOU SIR HIS EMAIL: drbhabumenrespellhome@gmail.com
