Maybe they just don’t know any better. Or they can’t help themselves, which seems to be the case with Michael Moore. But when the lamestream media and talking heads like Chris Matthews rushed to blame the Boston bombings on “the Far Right” – without the slimmest shred of evidence to back it up – they showed their true colors. Again.
Matthews blathered, “Normally domestic terrorists, people, tend to be on the far right.” Perhaps realizing he just stepped in it – and perhaps trying to retrieve a fig leaf of “professionalism” – Matthews tried to back-pedal with, “…That’s not a good category, just extremists, let’s call them that.”
And this gem:
“… do they (the ‘far right’) just hate America so much or its politics or its government that they just want to do the damage, they don’t care if they get public credit, if you will.” – Chris Matthews
This guy’s a news host??!!
Also in the running for Best Performance in the Completely Unhinged Category, is MSNBC “The Last Word” host Lawrence O’Donnell, who blamed the NRA for a “slow” investigation in Boston. “There are new developments tonight in the bombing investigation here in Boston,” O’Donnell said. “But that investigation could be moving faster were it not for the successful lobbying efforts of the National Rifle Association.”
“The NRA’s efforts to guarantee that American mass murderers are the best-equipped mass murders in the world is not limited to murderers who use assault weapons and high-capacity magazines.” – Lawrence O’Donnell, MSNBC
Do we detect a teensy-weensy bit of bias here?
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer seemingly joined the Leftie pile-on, speculating that the bombing may have been tied to Patriot’s Day… or something:
Later, CNN security adviser Peter Bergen speculated that the attack could be from ‘right-wing extremists.‘
When’s the last time you heard any of these guys and their ilk attribute something like this to “left-wing extremists”? Oh, yeah. No such thing according to the lamestream media.
These people aren’t “journalists.” They’re shills for all things Leftie and Liberal. And if they’re “professional” in any sense of the word, they’re professional propagandists.
Hey MSNBC, CNN and other lamestreamers, here are some suggestions:
1) Why don’t you get your facts straight before you shoot your mouths off on air?
2) Unless you have a real affinity for the taste of crow, quit jumping to groundless conclusions based on your political bias.
3) Your knee-jerk blame game was wasn’t just lazy “journalism.” It was blatantly biased, sloppy and irresponsible such that it qualifies as “yellow.” You can apologize any time. Retractions also accepted.
By the way, why isn’t this kind of baseless, broad-brushed conservative bashing “hate speech”? Oh, yeah. Forgot. Libs get a pass on that one. Especially since so many Hate Speech Harpies seem to reside in the Green Room at MSNBC.
