Update: Markos Moulitsas notes differences between bannings at MSNBC and MSNBC
Daily Kos founder says he received email from MSNBC president
Markos Moulitsas, founder of the popular liberal blog DailyKos.com, wrote in a blog post Wednesday that he had been banned from appearing on MSNBC.
Lauren Skowronski, a public relations employee for MSNBC and NBC Universal, MSNBC’s parent company, told Raw Story, “MSNBC is not commenting.”
MSNBC is generally considered a liberal-leaning network, so the claim that a large liberal blogger has been banned has raised eyebrows.
Story continues below…
“In case you were wondering why you haven’t seen me on MSNBC recently, it seems that Joe Scarborough, he of the lowest rated morning show in cableland, has blackballed me,” Moulitsas wrote Wednesday. “And Phil Griffin, the alleged president of MSNBC, is going along with it.”
“Yes, after I became aware of the ugly cheap shot you took at Joe on Twitter, I asked the teams to take a break from booking you on our shows for a while. I found the comments to be in poor taste, and utterly uncalled for in a civil discourse.” -Phil Griffin, MSNBC President
Ha Ha YOU STUPID FUCKS!!!!
You stupid fucking psychopathic wannabe-pundit FUCKS!!!
You got your ass mo-tha-fuckin BANNED from MSNBC!!!
How does it feel? Huh? Tell me, how does it feel to be “cast out” by those you wanted to be with?
WELCOME TO TROLL ALLEY WHERE WE HAVE TAKEN OVER AND CONTROLLED FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW!!!!
COME ON IN, WE’VE BEEN EXPECTING YOU…..
Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object, alive
Death will be their acquisition
The sky is turning red
Return to power draws near
Fall into me, the sky’s crimson tears
Abolish the rules made of stone
Pierced from below, souls of my treacherous past
Betrayed by many, now ornaments dripping above
Awaiting the hour of reprisal
Your time slips away
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding its horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in blood!

I mean, really,
are we supposed to care what they think ?
I don’t have time to keep up with all the trash talking with the media, once I figured out that it was just meant to suck all the oxygen out of everyone else’s discussions.
I’m not that enthusiastically “fer” or “agin” anything anymore (I don’t think so, anyway), but still – you made me smile. 🙂

Where I believe Cenk is messing up is that he is assuming that the President and his advisors like Rahm Emanuel, or his budget director like Peter Orszag (who is leaving soon), or the assorted clowns at the Treasury, actually want any sort of liberal or progressive policies to be enacted. He is assuming good faith on their part, and is still willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. But…. This President is perfectly happy to have any sort of hoary old Reaganomic or Clintonomic Third Way Triangulation crap enacted, and then to turn around and say, oh, too bad, sorry but we just could not do this with a supermajority in the House, a majority in the Senate, and the Oval office all being the same party. We needed a Republican vote(s).
This is because they made those deals way before the election. Now that the Republicans have sized him up, and seen how easy it is to get a capitulation out of them on almost anything, just by using the “F” word (threat of filibuster) (which is what happens when you let the Republicans write your legislation, such as what happened with Senators Lieberman and Graham working on the Energy Bill with Kerry the Kapitulator, ) the pattern has been set.
Don’t think all those Blew Dawgs don’t know that they can get more gravy by playing the same games and cooperating with Emanuel for those DNC Dollars to marginalize the progressive and liberal bases as much as possible.
They have the House write legislation and then tell the House to go fly a kite, sic the Tea Party on the most liberal members during the summer fundraising recess, which I wrote about last year and which infuriated those that were doing it, when I documented the money chain, and then they tell the Senate to go ahead and write what bill the President actually wants.
The Senate which can do anything without a supermajority of 60 votes, not 50, and which has exactly the same number of Senators from each state. Guaranteeing that the South will continue to dominate the national policy and squeeze the Northern states into more poverty. I see southern style wedge politics, which embraces the class divide (Manifest Destiny, Pre Destination, Calvinism, “inevitability” modern Crusades, etc ) coming into my west coast state, which went for the Democrats nationally during the 2008 election, and this crap is the last thing that we need.
The Senate making the Law- If this is not a tyranny of the overlords or landed gentry or royalty by inheritance, then, exactly, just what the hell is it ?
Now we have the internet version of threats with the unofficial OFA/DNC site of the net. Keep up the charade that nothing is wrong with this, or we’ll not let you cross post on different websites, only ours, or we’ll send people around the web to enforce it.
especially when you find out that you are not tight with the “in” crowd.
Lincoln did upon his election and make the greatest effort to keep the Union together. I’m not sure he even knows what century this is. He’s brainwashed himself into a stupor, and has already been a lame duck since last summer. But he still waddles and quacks believing people still think he’s cool, but unfortunately they don’t, except for some old halloween pumpkins. I don’t pick up his signals anyhow where I live.
