MSNBC Caught "Playing" To Conservative Viewers

How can the exhibition of the horrid side of Americana lead to the following from the Morning Joe (and minions) Show? You will notice Morning Joe Show producers booked one of America's most regressive conservatives to partake in what can only be described as "deflection." Why not book a more middle-of-the-road conservative for an important and sorely needed critique of an exhibition of Americana the from nation's most privileged and elitist example of white privilege.  Better yet, why not produce a show that simply laid bare the horrid racism and insensitivity to people who may have lost a loved one to lynching? 

The words from Kristol:
“Popular culture becomes a cesspool, a lot corporations profit off of it, and then people are surprised that some drunk 19-year-old kids repeat what they’ve been hearing,” said Bill Kristol. He added that Tipper Gore “tried to raise this issue, and was widely ridiculed,” referring to the parental advisory labels the future V-FLOTUS enacted after her daughter purchased Purple Rain thirty years ago.

“The kids that are buying hip hop or gangster rap, it’s a white audience, and they hear this over and over again,” Joe Scarborough said. “So do they hear this at home? Well, chances are good, no, they heard a lot of this from guys like this who are now acting shocked.”
The video.... 

According to Mediaite.... "UPDATE — 4:15 p.m. ET: Mika Brzezinski addressed her comments, with Al Sharpton beside her, on MSNBC’s The Cycle Wednesday afternoon. " Read more and watch the video clip here.
Crooks and Liars also ran the clip from the Cycle. My thoughts? The clip is nothing more than MSNBC working to cleanup a mess from Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. Frankly, Al Sharpton was noticeable cautious regarding his employers "Stack-ed deck" interview with Ari Melber. Melber did not in any pursue an interview; he merely fulfilled a role from his employer to facilitate Mika's rambling almost Sarah Palin like comments.

Crooks and Liars...


At the end of it all, the only relevant point is why did Joe Scarborough and his co-host even go to HiP Hop/Rap music when the focus should have been on a bus of America's young practicing racism witnessed since the fall of Jim Crow?

The answer is in accordance with Phil Griffin's, NBC President's, edict to un-liberalize the network.
