"I've Got a Helluva Story To Tell": Ed Schultz Spills The Beans on MSNBC Collusion Against Bernie. The Media Blackout on Bernie Was Real.
Of all the things that unsettle me about the ever-changing, current hysteria enveloping the MSM-addicted masses, the thing that aggravates me most is how the Scorned Clinton Cabal and their lapdog minions
on the payroll in the MSM have managed to keep up this totally ridiculous charade about the Russians tipping (or outright stealing) the election, depending on which grade of zombie you talk to. The stark truth is that they absolutely stole the nomination, through a web of deceit, lies, voter suppression/rigging/fraud and obfuscation by calling in a long laundry list of favors, cajoling and threats, to destroy Bernie Sanders campaign because like the petulant, entitled child she is, it was Her Turn.
As I've said previously, the obvious fraud of a presidential election between the two most hated, untrustworthy, lying multi-millionaire criminals should have been the most obvious and blatant evidence, that the whole idea of democracy through electoral politics is a complete farce and charade. The citizenry should instead be headlong down the path of laser-focus on the linchpin of Money In Politics, electoral fraud/disenfranchisement, gerrymandering, the stranglehold power of lobbyists over legislation, the corporate monopoly ownership of all sectors, out of control militarism and American imperialism, etc.
The most revolutionary thing about Bernie's campaign was how incredibly successful he was by not taking corporate money. He single-handedly upturned all the BS conventional wisdom that said one had to grovel for corporate cash. He was rewarded with the fealty of millions of folks who gave what they could, and more importantly canvassed and volunteered in droves, to a candidate who finally talked openly and honestly about issues effecting the majority and stood up to and brilliantly made the core of his campaign about the issue of, Money In Politics - which for anyone paying attention is the fundamental issue explaining the chronic dysfunction of American governance.
There's just absolutely no fucking way a candidate who regularly drew tens of thousands to his rallies is defeated by one who couldn't fill a high school gym. End of story.
No matter how many times we told the Neoliberal coffee klatch dupes at TOP that it was obvious the fix was in, they just closed their ears and hid behind some sanctimonious BS that the Greatest Country In The World's (remember the USA!USA!USA chants at the DNC?) elections and media were fair.
The Rational National had this video segment last night:
"I want to make this very clear, and I hope your audience consumes this, there was more oversight and more direction given to me on content at MSNBC than there ever has been here at RT. And I think that it's very sad that that story is not getting out.
I think it's many times I was told with the lead with on MSNBC many times I was told what I was not going to do and I've got a story that had I not been involved in it I would have never believed it. And Phil Griffin, who I consider a friend to this day, was a watchdog. Far more
than anything I am exposed to here at RT."
(Question) Did he tell you what to say, did he tell you an angle to take?
Then there's Phil Griffin again.
"In fact, when Bernie Sanders was announcing that he was going to be a candidate for the nomination of the Democratic Party in Burlington Vermont I was the only cable
host between Fox MSNBC and CNN that was there live to cover it. Now there were live cameras there but we had coordinated with the Sanders campaign that at 5:00 o'clock he was going to
make his announcement and we were going to cover this on The Ed Show.
I go to Bernie Sanders house that afternoon to do an interview in the back yard, about a 15 minute interview. The grandkids are running around, it's a big day for the Sanders family, he's going to announce that he's running for president. We're gonna carry it live later on in the day and we're gonna run this one-on-one tape with Bernie. 3,000 people are there on Lake Champlain. It's 5 minutes to air, and I get a phone call from Phil Griffin, 'you're not covering this.' I said, 'Phil, Bernie Sanders is announcing he's running for president.' 'I don't care. You're not covering this.' And it got rather contentious."
"Well, now you're asking me for opinion. I'm giving you a fact right now about what happened. And other people who were there with me will attest to the fact and back me up that this is what happened. We were told that we had to cover something down in Texas that was totally meaningless, and another press conference in Baltimore which already had been in the news for a few days. We're covering Bernie Sanders live! We're coordinated with his campaign and I'm told five minutes before you're not covering Bernie Sanders!
Now let me give you the opinion: I think the Clintons were connected to Andy Lack, connected at the hip. I think that they didn't want anybody in their prime time, or anywhere in their lineup, supporting Bernie Sanders. I think that they were in the tank for Hillary Clinton and I think it was managed.
And 45 days later I was out at MSNBC."
Who's Andy Lack? The NBC News Chairman.
Just did a cursory search for him and seems he's a serial cover up man for high-powered sexual assualters. Bubba was one and Matt Lauer another, and seems he passed up the Harvey Weinstein story. I don't have the time to fully flesh this out as I'd like, time constraints of full-time Dad being what they are.
Here's a bit I could find out though, about the kind of guy Andy Lack is. When the Lauer story broke, he claimed that there hadn't been one single complaint filed against his "dear friend." Which is the exact opposite of the Vanity Fair story's headline, "“Everybody Knew”: Inside the Fall of Today’s Matt Lauer
They passed on the Weinstein story—but NBC News’s own sexual harassment problem was hiding in plain sight."
The milquetoast MSNBC lackey Matt Lauer, quite possibly the lamest, most tepid and boring man ever to be on tv (which is probably what he's paid for). He's another Neoliberal demon who is regularly whisked away via helicopter over my apartment in Queens (in a constant flow of Economic Terrorists' preferred method of travel, so as not to be burdened by the wreckage they've wrought) to his home in the Hamptons as part of his contract. Good riddance, sleazy, predatory douchebag feeling high and mighty in the club (along with Charlie Rose, et al).
The list of truth-teller casualties at MSNBC goes on and on: Phil Donahue, Dylan Rattigan, Cenk Uygur, etc. Someone should get these guys together for a roundtable discussion. Jimmy Dore, are you listening?
