Stenographers to power series—
THE MSNBC CORRAL & THE PUTATIVE KILLING OF OSAMA BIN LADEN
The attack on Osama’s compound uncorks a torrent of systemic apologetics and red-white-and-blue jingoism
From Chris Matthews to Ed Schultz, and passing through Lawrence O’Donnell and Rachel Maddow, the channel is positively bristling with chauvinist nonsense and sycophancy, with its leading liberal stars practically in a hot scramble to sing the loudest praise to Obama and the Democrats.
MAY 2 ED SCHULTZ: “America Prevails”
In this segment Ed Schultz, long a cheerleader for the Democrats, burnishes his creds as MSNBC’s Obamabot In Chief waxing lyrical about America’s exceptionalism and the good fortune of having a great leader like Obama, those great Navy SEALs, a roof over our heads, and other things that “make this country so special.” —P.
