Typical NYT tripe....
 
"You have to worry whether something that was intended to goose ratings and kick up debate could metastasize when it meets some of the baser urges of the fringe, among people who don’t come out to rallies but are sitting in a basement steeped in their own misanthropy."
 
###
I do not recall Mr. Carr worrying about such things when the left carried their signs of Bush being mocked as a present day Hitler while The NY Times put it all on the front page and the rest of the media covered it with breathless commentary.
 
The brief mention of Rachel Maddow without reference to her adolescent teabagging-a-thon with Ana Marie Cox should have tipped me off to the angle....Carr wanted to appear moderate, responable and tolerant, but his irrational bias, (fear of the bogeyman) could not be held back.
 
Oh well. Although I doubt he's creating his work from a basement, the fear he shows is one of those, "baser urges," he seems to feel only exist on one side of the political spectrum. His mistake.

The CNN Tape O'Reilly Didn't Show
Reported by Ellen - April 20, 2009 - 3 comments  
 
WOW!! Wait until you read this post. Big Momma has really stretched the Susan Roesgen thing into a smear fest of Fox, Bill O'Reilly, Glen Beck, Greta Van Susteren and the guy with the baby. The only one she didn't smear was the baby. Of course she seemed somewhat offended that the baby was actually crying.  
 
She dragged the Code Pink Punks along for the ride as well.
 
Now let me see. How did all this begin?
 
Oh, yes. Susan Roesgen violated any number of journalistic ethics during her interview of the man with the baby.
 
Big Momma also somehow refers to Beck as a journalist. Lat time I checked he was a talk show host.
 
Whew!! Glad that is over. Ellen must have taken a double dose of her cocaine when she wrote this little piece of garbage.

David Carr writes the same story twice a week.  
 
There's a Carr Template:
 
He's "moderate, responable and tolerant," with added emfusis on responable.
 
His comrades at MSNBC are a trifle impish...(or is that a truffle umpish?), but they are kinda' cute, and smart too!
 
On the other hand, the oafy morans...(or is that iffy Mirrin's?) at FOX News are correspondingly clumsy and ham-handed. Their unvalient viewers are dangerous like Judge Doom and his henchman, the anthropomorphic animated weasels.

News Busters has a great article on the coverage of the Tea Parties on Reliable Sources. Frank Sesno, formerly of CNN and now a professor of media and public affairs at GWU, demonstrates his rather remarkable talents for twisting himself into intellectual pretzels to protect his ideological soul mates while simultaneously blasting those wascally RWers for less egregious offenses.
 
Sesno Bashes Fox's Tea Party Coverage, Defends Olbermann and Roesgen
 
This is Sesno's verdict on the four FNC hosts who broadcast from Tea Parties:
 
"It's fine from a First Amendment point of view. They've got that right. It's not fine from a journalistic point of view...Because that's not our job. Our job is not to use our podium and our platform and our television camera to tell people what they should be thinking and doing. Our job should be to tell them what's happening out there and then they decide what to do. "
 
What's there to disagree with? If you're Sesno those are the rules for only Some of the players.
 
His evaluation of Susan Roesgen:
 
"Words like "fascist" are very serious words. And your responsibility as a journalist, it seems to me, to be out there, is to challenge that and draw that person out. It doesn't mean getting into a debating contest with him. And maybe she stepped over the line with that, but that's an important thing to call people out on."
 
His evaluation of KO and the lovely and gracious Jeanine Garafolo waxing poetic on the Tea Parties:
 
"Should be challenged. I mean, again -- but it depends what the show is. All right? I mean, Keith Olbermann is Keith Olbermann. I mean, he's going to approach this the way he should."
 
As Noel Shepherd summed it up:
 
"Amazing. So Roesgen was right to challenge and draw out folks at the Chicago Tea Party, but Olbermann gets a pass with Garofalo because he's Olbermann.
 
Meanwhile, Beck and Hannity clearly overstepped journalistic boundaries.
 
Thanks for straightening that out for us, Professor.
 
And that concludes today's lesson on media and public affairs."

What is very telling is the fact that FNC's decision to heavily cover the protests was such a ratings winner and that is a valid argument against the marginalization and outright delegitimizing we see from people like Carr, Sesno, etc.
 
Also, Rasmussen now has a poll about popular perceptions of the protests and it shows a good number in the nation view the Tea Parties at least favorably....
 
http://tinyurl.com/create.php
 
###
There also seems to be a reflection of the MSM attitude in the "political elite" numbers being so much different in looking at the protests unfavorably.
 
33% seem to be potentially in Garofalo's posse ready to pull off those white hoods.
 
FNC was right on in serving the interests of their audience, not the Washington cocktail circuit crowd. CNN should understand this fact and not follow MSNBC down the rat hole.

Excellent ratings AGAIN for FNC! Just terrific. The Countdown Ratings were low, even for Mr. Czechoslovakia, but I checked and I found out that Schuster was hosting. The Ed Show's ratings number for "demo" appears to equal our friend, the l'il feller's , IQ. I thought that was an interesting coincidence.
 
Speaking of the little one, I saw a comment from an OW poster about Rick Sanchez. It reminded me of the little one thinking he had bested J$ with a comment made by Johnny mentioning that Sanchez had killed more people than FNC. In his usual angry muppet way, the little one demanded J$ to "prove it". Of course, the little one was proven wrong, AGAIN.

I sent two E-mails to CNN the other night.  
 
I sent this first and carboned Mr Jautz::
 
"Dear Mr Kent:
 
I am a sometime viewer of CNN. In recent years the sometimes have gotten further and further apart due to the left leaning bias that comes through.
 
After watching the spectacle that was Ms Roesgan's segment yesterday not only do I plan to never tune in again but am also considering blocking your family of channels.
 
There was much to disapprove of in her "performance" (what she did bears no relationship to reporting) but three things stood out as especially egreious.
 
First, she interrupted her interviewee by screaming at him multiple times.
 
Second, she was violently jabbing her finger in his face.
 
Third, at one point she turned and faced the camera full faced smiling as she shouted over her subject.
 
In addition I saw a video of her style in New Orleans which was beyond just a stark difference to being unrecognizable from her performance yesterday. She was very sharp about the signs she so obviously disapproved of yestersay (no mention of any noncontroversial signs). In New Orleans several years ago she radiated charming acceptance of a protester in a costume of President Bush that was part a devil with horns and Hitler like features.
 
I do not normally call for anyone's firing that is so popular today. In fact I have never done so. However, in this case I don't feel that Ms Roesgan is qualified to be a reporter or work in any position of authority in that field.  
 
She would, however, be very well suited to a profession that requires passionate commitment and advocacy. As long as she picked a spot that she could wholeheartedly endorse she would be a natural.
 
Sincerely,"
 
Full Signature
 
About an hour later I saw that Susan R's E-mail was back up so I sent her a copy with this preface:
 
"Dear Ms Roesgan:
 
Below is a copy of the E-mail that I sent earlier to Mr Kent and Mr Jautz expressing my deeply held conviction that the behavior you demonstrated on the 15th and what can only be the underlying motivation of that behavior renders you unfit to work in any capacity which requires unbiased intellectual honesty."
 
I got the info from News Busters:
 
http://newsbusters.org/blogs/warner-todd-huston/2009/04/16/avoiding-criticism-cnn-shuts-down-anti-tea-party-reporters-email
 
"CNN Executive Vice President Ken Jautz: ken.jautz@cnn.com
 
Philip Kent, the Chairman & CEO of CNN: phil.kent@turner.com"
 
and the info re Susan R from a comment by Gary Hall:

Grammie,
 
Read the Daily Howler piece you mentioned.
 
I had no idea of the Maddow and Olbermann interviews in which they continued to try and eek as much life as could out of the teabagging thing. (Since MSNBC has given me this "bite" off the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil, it is now impossible for me to make any sort reference to the matter that doesn't sound like I'm making my own double entendres.)
 
Maddow and Olbermann attempts to prop up the notion that the teabagging slang term is as much a part of the national consciousness as the slang "cool" or "hot", is sickeningly disingenuous.
 
Maddow and Olbermann may be urbanites, but I doubt that even in the most hip provinces of Gotham is that slang of such universal understanding.
 
I agree with Somerby's assessment that the emphasis on this bit of dirty word guffawing was a CORPORATE decision.  
 
Doubtlessly it's MSNBC's ploy to embarrass, marginalize, and humiliate the protesters, by acting as though the rubes were in the dark about the most trendy of modern lingo.  
 
What's especially troubling about it, in my book, is their willingness to use what has been a cherished tenet of liberalism-- the freedom of sexual expression for both gay and straight, and the sense of adult sexual pleasure as being innately natural, rather than shameful,--- in order to debase, demean, and disgrace political protesters.
 
I'd expect that of John T., Patrick, AAP, and the ludicrous Claudo. That's THEIR forte, but I'm amazed to see it as policy at MSNBC.
 
The channel truly is pulling out all the stops, jettisoning all sense of idealism, for the most cretinous and adolescent of lefty audiences.

Axelrod's response was to a question on, among other things, the tea parties, and I am quoting Smith, "What do you make of this spreading and very public disaffection with, not only the government, but especially the Obama administration -- the tea parties this week?"
 
MEDIA MATTER's claim that F&F used the answer out of context is false just based on the transcript they use.
 
Also, Mr. Brice (who is clearly identified as analyst by FNC and not a journalist) is entitled to his opinion that Axelrod's use of the term "unhealthy," in describing the tea parties can be inferred as "Un-American." I agree with Mr. Brice that it is apalling that a senior White House official is making such remarks about the American people.
 
So sorry chris....FNC and F&F are fair and balanced here because they allowed an alternative view (Mr. Brice)to that of the powers that be in the government....here David Axelrod.
 
Thank goodness for FNC keeping a check on those in our government that would ridicule or even demean as "unhealthy" Americans protesting policy.

Exactly so, cee. There's a reason why Media Matters is discredited, and this phony smear is one example. As you noted, first Axelrod talked about secession, then he was asked directly to respond to the first part of the question--the tea parties. He did, and F&F accurately played the clip where he did so.
 
It just shows how desperate the Fox haters are that they will use something like this to support their hate.

I would say to you, Chris, that you first research Gov Perry's ACTUAL remarks and then decide if this is the tac you want to take.
 
This is a good start:
 
http://townhall.com/blog/g/0abbb40b-37d3-41f7-9b8b-2ff78c65c68a&comments=true
 
A quote from Govenor Perry:
 
"From Texas Governor Rick Perry , “I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” adding “that is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union."
 
I have read at several sites that this comment was the genisis for the erroneous labeling of Perry's comments as secessionist.
 
I do not and can not agree with you that suppoting the tenth ammendment to our Constitution is somehow dangerous.

AXELROD: -- by the governor's suggestion. Look, I think any time -- I think any time that you have severe economic conditions, there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something that's unhealthy.
 
SMITH: Is this unhealthy?
 
AXELROD: Well, we're in a -- this is a country where we value our liberties and our ability to express ourselves, and so far, these are expressions. Now, one thing I would say is, the thing that bewilders me is this president just cut taxes for 95 percent of the American people. So, I think the tea bags should be directed elsewhere, because he certainly understands the burden that people face.

Why should it be? No station is under any obligation to run lengthy clips, and they can't anyhow cuz the interview is CBS's property and they have no right to rebroadcast it. They have permission to use 30 seconds or so by agreement with the networks.
 
Did the 30 seconds Fox used accurately portray what Axelrod said? Yes. Fair and accurate. Case closed.

BTW chris, you are entitled to disagree with Mr. Brice and agree with David Axelrod. America is great that way.
 
I shudder hearing a servant of the people say public political speech that is opposed to his administration's policy is, "unhealthy."
 
I was actually impressed by Axelrod's nervous recovery after Smith, with surprised tone said, "Is this unhealthy?" He switched on the same talking points used by CNN reporter Susan Roesgen just 4 days prior (Why are these people protesting?....95% of American got a TAX CUT this year!)
 
F&F is properly covering a senior administration official spontaneously responding to a reporter's question, in context. Axelrod's mistake in letting us all know how he REALLY feels about dissent instead of the retreat to, "We gave you all $400.00!" is news. I am sorry the propagandists at MEDIA MATTERS wanted a different interpretaion.

I don't just get my news from FoxNews. I prefer to check multiple sources. I find that BBC and Israel news will say things that our American news won't say...but I suspect that's because American news are owned by corporations who control what news is allowed. American corporations are not going to report anything their advertisers or shareholders object to being reported.
 
Fox News made a very big impression on me over the Tea Party coverage, so I'm not ruling them out any more. I'm a member of spokeup.com, which helped me understand Fox a bit better than I gave them credit for.  
 
When mainstream media is calling us Fox News clowns, that put my mind at ease that Fox News is probably the one to watch for now.

It appeared from the clip, that Axelrod was struggling to find the right word and that "unhealthy" wasn't his first, or even second choice, and that "unhealthy" was probably the least derogative and perhaps, the least offensive choice he could come up with.
 
Axelrod, "...there is always an element of disaffection that can mutate into something...uhh, uhh, uhh..that's, that's, that's unhealthy."
