MSNBC: Communications wing of Democratic Party

MSNBC: Communications wing of Democratic Party

MSNBC is neither a news service nor a platform for journalistic opinion. The offspring of NBC News and Microsoft is essentially the communications operation of the left wing of the Democratic Party – and there is more than sufficient evidence to prove that. The most compelling evidence comes from the Democratic Party, itself, as you will see below.

It is obvious from the manner in which they parse and spin the events of the day. Every presentation throughout their 24/7 cycle is crafted to highlight, explore, analyze, spin and even concoct stories that reflect negatively on President Trump, Republicans in Congress, GOP candidates, conservatives in general – and all Americans who support any of the aforementioned in any way.

The motive of MSNBC is not only evident in content, but in that much-needed characteristic of honest and ethical journalism – balance. It is virtually impossible to find any host , moderator, panelist, contributor or pundit on MSNBC who actually offers up a legitimate opposing opinion or view. In a shameful and pitiful attempt at the appearance of balance, the network offers up a few false-flag so-called “Republican strategists” who have sold out – literally – for money and a place in the national spotlight.

In the court-of-public-opinion, MSNBC functions as a full-throated prosecutor representing the Democratic Party case. In political terms, they are propagandists, by definition. Perhaps the best evidence of MSNBC’s submission to the Democratic Party comes from the Party itself.

In an effort to keep apprised of the full range of political information, I am on the email list of seemingly every political fundraising operation in America – both sides — making my delete button one of the most used keys on my keyboard. One can certainly expect a party to raise money to promote and defend its candidates, issues, and infrastructure. And they do see MSNBC as part of the Democratic Party infrastructure, as you will see.

Just look at these Democrat “money please” pleas that have popped up in my email. The actual text, of course, is larger, bolder, more colorful and more highlighted than I can show in this space. Regardless, here are samplings of those money solicitations.

“BAD NEWS: Donald Trump just doubled down on his attacks on the media. He said reporters like Rachel Maddow are the ENEMY OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.”

And another.

“Rachel Maddow just dropped a frightening BOMBSHELL about Republican voter suppression in Georgia.”

An entire solicitation was geared to defend MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. Here are a few outtakes.

“Lawrence O’Donnell goes on the air every night and reports the truth – even if that means being attacked by our thin-skinned President.

If Trump has his way, Lawrence O’Donnell and his colleagues at MSNBC would be off the air. FOR GOOD. Without support from Democrats, Trump could get his way. We need to know what journalists our supporters watch. So we can ALL fight to protect them!”

Did you catch that phrase, “without support from the Democrats?” And ponder that last sentence – “So, we (Democrats) can fight to protect them (MSNBC folks).”

The “Subject” box of another solicitation made a totally bogus claim. It read, “Trump’s move to ban MSNBC.” Inside, the fundraising email further claimed that “MSNBC is more threatened than ever. And we all must step up to make sure Trump is NOT allowed to ban MSNBC.” “We” being the Democrats, of course.

It went on to say:

“Unless we act soon, MSNBC and all the other news outlets Trump despises could be GONE. So please: we are reopening this petition to EVERYONE. Don’t miss another chance to stand up for Maddow and MSNBC.”

“We depend on reliable news sources like Rachel Maddow to keep Trump accountable.”

“… MSNBC have never been more threatened.”

When you click on one of the donation links – and no, I did not donate – you get a large picture of … Rachel Maddow. She is a particular favorite. In another email alleging voter suppression, it led with, “Rachel Maddow just released a HORRIFYING report.”

One email particularly caught my attention because it appeared to be coming FROM Rachel Maddow, herself. The “From” box read: “Maddow UPDATE.” That was not the “Subject” box, but the “From” box. The top line inside read, “Breaking news from Rachel Maddow.”

A later “From” box read “Breaking news from MSNBC,” and the interior headline was, “Rachel Maddow just TORE INTO North Dakota Republicans.”

There are more, but you get the idea.

Democrats are using MSNBC as their communications vehicle to not only give a biased view of the news, but to lie – such as that hysterical claim that Trump will shut down MSNBC,

Despite the obviously biased reporting on MSNBC and its obvious strategic ties to the Democratic Party, I have liberal friends, who are otherwise well informed, but who use MSNBC as their exclusive source of information. I have always advised those on the far left and the far right to cruise the news if you want to be a fully informed voter. Obsessing on MSNBC will not get you there.

So, there it ‘tis.

    The N.T. book of Revelation tells of Satan’s deception in the latter days using the “False Prophet” to manipulate thought. Left wing mouthpieces are certainly descriptive of this term.

    For years now I have said almost exactly the same thing. The left wing media is the PROPAGANDA arm of the socialist Democrat party.

    Only a dimwit would believe this ridiculous twist on the truth. Sounds like trumpian interpretation of facts to try to make himself seem reasonable, sensible, and anything other than the con-man he is and always has been. Trump himself is his worst enemy. All it takes is a person with a brain, an ounce of compassion and a true sense of morality to recognize what a mistake it was to believe that trump was presidential material.
