Chris Matthews of MSNBC has declared that it is now his job to ensure that the Obama presidency is successful according to this story from News Busters.
Here is a sample of the exchange between Matthews and Joe Scarborough also of MSNBC.
CHRIS MATTHEWS: Yeah, well, you know what? I want to do everything I can to make this thing work, this new presidency work, and I think that --
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Is that your job? You just talked about being a journalist!
MATTHEWS: Yeah, it is my job. My job is to help this country.
SCARBOROUGH: Your job is the make this presidency work?
MATTHEWS: To make this work successfully. This country needs a successful presidency.
So, it's nice to see that the media is going to continue it's fair and balanced reporting that it used all throughout the campaign. Funny how Mr. Matthews hasn't shown the same concern about the country over the last 8 years.
Actually, forget the fake sarcasm. This man, along with most other so called journalists on MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, AP, the New York Times, etc are absolutely full of shit. I personally don't care if they are biased, they can be want they want. We as a country need to turn them off if they cannot start being journalists and not far left propagandists for the Democratic party. I will not watch any of these networks. I have not watched a network news program in years.
The only thing that will eventually work is a total boycott. All of the news outlets above are bleeding consumers. Their ad revenue is plummeting. We need to keep not watching until they either begin to show some balance or they go out of business. I, for one, am OK with either outcome.
