MSNBC Libtalker: 'Morning Joe' Team Takes Direction From WH

STATE CONTROL?

Schultz: WH Contacts Team 'Joe' Directly During Program!







For anyone wondering why an increasing number of conservatives now use the term "state-controlled media" (which originated with Rush Limbaugh) to refer to television networks and newspapers, here's one that drives the point home.

During his syndicated radio show Friday, libtalker and MSNBC host Ed Schultz relayed to listeners how he observed 'Morning Joe' Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski take feedback directly from the White House during their program last week.

Schultz appeared on Thursday's Morning Joe and directly challenged Obama's David Axelrod on the current version of the health care bill under consideration in Congress. Interestingly, this particular segment has since generated a great deal of attention elsewhere, given the defensive nature of the White House advisor and the supposed conflict between the far left and the administration:



Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, propaganda, and state-controlled news about the economy



And here's what Ed told radio listeners the next day about the visit:





SCHULTZ (07:14): I just want to get things clear, it was not arranged for me to have a question for David Axelrod.


SCHULTZ (08:12): So Mika starts looking at her Blackberry and so does Scarborough and obviously the White House is texting them or emailing them or whatever and they didn't like the show. Because Arianna had been on there, I'm on there, Howard Dean had been on there and they wanted some balance.

Now think about that - here's the White House getting in contact with 'Morning Joe' because they're afraid there's too many lefties on the air! Now if that's not sensitivity at its highest level, I don't know what is! I told ya a few days ago they had rabbit ears! They don't like anything that's being said right now, they're getting beat up!



Is it really possible that the White House has a direct line to MSNBC's hosts, communicating with them during their live broadcasts? Now THAT'S state control!

And do MSNBC staffers actually carry out the administration's commands? In this case, they certainly made room on short notice for a lengthy segment featuring Axelrod, there to rebut comments made by Howard Dean and other recent guests.

Now, imagine if Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, or another non-"progressive" host had been caught taking orders from Bush during the program. When would we ever hear the end of that?

  • DUH!!!!!!!! Go back a little while, during a show the White House e-mail the producers of "Morning Joe" when they incorrectly said something. Time to wake up!!! This has been going on for months!!!

  • I watch Morning JOe regularly, and have seen Mika look down at her Blackberry (or whatever) and allude to a message she just received from the White House. Joe then teases her about it...they're really not even trying to hide the relationship. Help!

  • All MSM is controlled by the White House and censors endlessly. This is all about limiting Free Speech. After all, censorship is everywhere. The gov’t (and their big business cronies) censor Rush from owning a football team, shut down Ron Paul and ban the book “America Deceived”. Free speech for all.

  • I like morning joe, most of the time my stomach gets upset. It's really hard to believe Mika can be so stupid. My left wing brother from NJ even thinks so. I'm not sure how Joe ( I guess because he's getting paid) stand listening to these left wing whack jobs all day long. They are just loons. We need people like Joe back in Congress for their fiscal discipline and responsibility. John Kachich comes to mind as well. We are getting spent into the ground! It's got to stop.

    By Blogger X_LA_Native, at 21 December, 2009 16:17  

  • This doesn't seem unreasonable to me. Joe and Mika would certainly have White House staffers they routinely talk to for background information and so on. Why wouldn't those sources get in touch with them when they don't like the story they're putting out? As long as they're not changing their coverage as a result, I don't think there's anything wrong with that.

  • Joe Scarborough is the classic sellout / shill who traded his quasi-Conservative House seat for the Big Payday. There is a high probability that he now earns a six-figure monthly income - and by his silence and deference throws The Republicans and the Conservatives under the bus.
    I would not be surprised if he eventually leaves the radical-Left MSNBC for more money at Al-Jazeera.

  • When I hear anti-Obama anything, I pay attention; he is a gut-wrenching piece of evil.

    However, if there is anything that makes me AS SICK as Obama, it is the notion that Ron Paul is the antidote! RON PAUL IS LIBERTARIAN POISON.

    At least Obama is OPENLY anti-American. Ron Paul (and his equally loopy son) are self-styled "uber-Americans" but are JUST AS DANGEROUS! RP is an anti-Semite who blames Israel. RP is anti-military. RP is anti-women. RP is anti-war. RP wants the gold stadard. RP is an abortion extremist who wants women bare-foot, pregnant, and silent!

    Being "pro" Ron Paul is JUST AS DANGEROUS as being "pro" Barack Obama. A POX on both their houses!

  • For the moron that alluded to the government preventing Rush Limbaugh from owning an NFL team - you are not only a paranoid dope, but also do not understand basic free market principles. You see, in a free market we, the consumers, get to decide what we want to "consume" or watch on TV - you know, the box with the moving people in it. The players can also choose not to play for someone they wish not to associate themselves with (i.e. Rush Limbaugh - the guy who thought "Barrack the Magic Negro" wasn't racist and hate filled). Believe it or not the off the field problems of many of these individual players has way less of an affect on viewership than what the NFL owners feel Rush owning a team would have. He is polarizing - any simpleton can see that. And when you polarize you effectively turn off a large part of your audience.

And it is wrong both that they do it so readily, so predictably, so consistently for Obama. Further it is wrong for the administration to be out there manipulating the news. Especially when the parent company of the news organization is seeking government "green"contracts. Very very bad stuff. I have given up on the channel and look forward to the next elections. I hope the Republicans get their act together, stop being the party of K Street lobbyists and start being a genuine conservative party.

For several months it appeared that JS and MB were at odds one another, not unlike like some husbands & wifes often become. However a few months ago, JS seemed to me, to take a more leftist stance and I remarked to a friend that "it was almost like both parties had gone to a marriage counselor" as they then seemed to agree with one another much much more. Agreeing on the Left, not the Right! Hmmmmm I do wonder...if it is all about following the dollars!

  • Mr. Maloney...thanks for the clarity in your article. This is; however, much bigger than this one show. Remember that GE owns NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, Telemundo and The Weather Channel. All of these have been in the tank for Obama, the Healthcare Takeover and Cap and Trade. GE's interests are in wind farms, turbines for the wind farms, natural gas production for which they have major holdings, the change to electronic health records and the financing of the health care takeover. They had to have a crisis in both energy and healthcare to get this pushed through. To do this, GE used its media outlets to push both of these issues. Even with this, GE is only a bit player. By the way, The Weather Channel is on my boycott list.

This IS not America any more this a play book from mother Russia and the communist hand book, Obama needs to be taken down . I have never seen a country taken over from a Fraud like Obama. when Obama breaks America with 35-40 unemployment where 70% of businesses are owned and run by this commy government, and the dollar worth nothing because of 12 trillion deficit next year, there will a military coup and a revolution to remove these communist. All this from an Jihadist President born in Kenya that never had a real job he is bought and paid for by the Terrorists Around the world who helped him with A billion dollar campaign or a jihadist Islamic Trojan horse . My Opion Obama needs to removed before he does he e was is paid to do job of destroying America, Pith forks and guns are going to take our DC if this Communist c--t succeds with his communists agenga. Impeach Obama now time for a change Send this illegal alien back to Kenya! I would want to be OBAMA REID PEELOSI NELSON, OR LANDRUIE their states will deal with these communist anti American scum! Tar and feather these thugs let the revolution begin. Every thing these Idiots do is un constutional, it's time for balls of steel remove the varmits from congress in 2010! Obama reminds me of a white hating Hitler and he has already started kids to tell on their parents who don't like Obama, through twitter get out the vote Obama corp, he already centralized the government with no private sector jobs. He is as much of a devil that Hitler was. He is on TV to point you want shoot the TV. We are living the end of the American dream.

  • Hey folks... lots of complaints here about this, but you fail to do one important thing... STOP WATCHING! I don't watch MSNBC, and I can care less if Obama has a direct link to his closed-circuit news organizations.

    Fox is just as bad. Fox News were talking about Global Warming and Green Job yesterday. They do as they are told and they say what they are told. All of them. If any of you think Hannity is a patriot should contact me and buy some property I have to sell.

    The problems in America and across the world has absolutely nothing to do with Obama. It's the people who put these people in power and then complain on Monday mornings about the guy they voted for.

    Now you guys are on Palin, who quit her gov't rank to go on a book tour. America is no different than Rome. The split killed Rome, and it's the same Dem/Rep garbage that will bring down America.

    And if you haven't noticed, America is pretty much spent. It's over. No one will recognize America in 2010. And I think this whole thing is hysterical. Self-implosion voted for by the people.

    You voted for this folks! Now take your medicine. And stop complaining about the media, and then turning around and patronizing them. If you didn't watch in the first place, you wouldn't have this problem. You idiots!

And when ever bush wanted a push in the news he called all the right wing nutso screaming meamies to the whitehouse to get their stores straight. Ha..so again it is ok for the repubicans dimwites to regular the news but if it even hinted that the dems make suggestions the republicans run around scream and mess their pants.

    To call yourself a democrat and/or liberal in this day - you are either dumb as a rock or you pine for the days of Marx.

    Either way, the US should not be wiped out be the liberal panty-wastes. The day of revolution is coming. The day that a liberal hides in their closet is coming.

  • This stuff has been going on for a long time, but you'll always have "denyers" out there who will refuse to admit that the mainstream media is liberal biased. Even though they know it's true, they'll never admit it because they can't cast themselves as "oppressed liberals" unless they pretend the liberal media bias isn't there. They also can't defend and promote their socialist agenda unless they make themselves out to be the "victim of conservative capitalism". And they do that by controlling the news media with "defensive liberal news", while falsely claiming that conservatism is really in control.

    Kinda like showing up at an auction with a semi trailer full of cash, but claiming that you only have $5 bucks on you to spend.

I am a strong conservative but watch the show regularly to see what the other side is saying to justify my beliefs on conservatism! Mika does look at her Blackberry and they do often comment about having a link to the White House - that is exactly why I will stay a conservative. Matter of fact after this debacle with Health Care I will never support a Democrat as long as I live. I believe in Americans not a Party but Dems believe there is no America without a Democratic Party. It is not what is best for Americans rather what is best for the democratic Party! Sorry Dems but America will get it right one day and you will be out of power soon enough!

    I am so disappointed in him now. Obviously,he's not the same conservative guy I voted for way back then.

    You're a traitor, Joe, and not only for bailing out mid-term for your constituents in Northwest Florida. Such a shame you've become a blind follower, and have fallen for the razzle dazzle of this administration which you would have pilloried 16 years ago. It's far worse than Clinton's administration back then. But I guess DC got to you, maybe certain other partners of the Pensacola law firm you may still work for got to you, but I now hang my head in shame at the mention of your name. Did you not even question being a conduit for the Obama White House's propaganda?

    Thanks for nothing, Joe, while the rest of us see the republic our ancestors fought to preserve go down as just another Euro-style socialist nanny state in the world.

  • Just a suggestion:
    Let all liberals have either the eastern or western half of the U.S. (their choice). All of them waiting for handouts, not working, illegals, wanting ever-higher taxes and socialists have to stay on that side, with their own totally separate government.
    On the other side will be only conservatives who believe in work, self-supporting themselves and their families, very low tax rates and fiscal responsibility.
    Would that make everyone happy?
    Liberals would have to tax "the rich" from among their own ranks, for which they would obviously vote unanimously.
    Businesses could decide which part of the country would be friendlier to their needs.
    Unemployment, health care and other issues could be worked out separately.
    Let's see how that works out.

    HOWEVER... i think it a bit silly for Mr Limbaugh, Hannity, etc to act like Mr Bush did not influence the media, express displeasure, etc, or that conservatives somehow are 'resistant to the state'. None of them were resistant when Colin Powell threw the towel over the picture of Guernica and told us Iraq was going to spray Anthrax on us.

    Back in 2002, conservatives called people who disagreed with the government 'traitors', Im thinking of you Mr Hannity. It's simply hypocritical to pretend one 'side' has a monopoly on resistance to state power.

  • The following was my email to the show prior to the election when they were discussing the "apparent" conflict of interest with Gwen Ifill moderating a presidential debate and having a book about Obama coming out around election time.

    I was wondering if someone could clarify what Ms. Brzezinski meant when she said, "In this age of journalism, it is not about WHO is objective and WHO has what opinion...You know what?...everyone has an opinion. WE'RE SMART ENOUGH TO HAVE OPINIONS...THAT'S WHY WE'RE HERE. The question is 'can we be fair?' - Gwen Ifill can."

    Who is included in Ms. Brzezinski's "smart" group capable of forming an opinion? Is it the Obama media sycophants with tingling sensations running up their legs? Is there an admissions test for it? Does it include the show's technicians, hairdressers, etc.? I certainly won't begrudge Mika her opinions, but her statement reflects and even appears to embrace the "media elite" stereotype. I hate to burst your bubble, Mika, but when folks out in the real world refer to "media elites", it is done with derision. Media groupthink (especially MSNBC branding) is just as adept at forming insular opinions as any of us out in the real world.

  • If you listened to what Ed actually said then you'd realize he's not talking about the White House "controlling" Morning Joe, but rather them being upset that progressives, including Ed himself, were criticizing them. He calls the White House sensitive to the fact that they're being beat up by the people they assumed would be on their side.

    It's not surprising that Axelrod would contact Joe and Mika, nor that MSNBC would make room for him on the show. When one of the topWH advisers contacts your morning show and offers to debate, on air, with your guests, you do not deny them that opportunity. Why? Not because you have to listen to the WH, but because it'll garner ratings and attention.

    For all of you who criticize MSNBC for being "in the bag" for the WH, why would they let the guy they're supposed to be propping up be torn apart by a critic on their network? Use some cognitive skills, people, and abandon your paranoid conspiracy theories.

    Why waste a moment on TV news in general, let alone outright propaganda blatted by improbably-named telepoodles?

    Aren't the lies, inanities, and misleadings precisely why many of us turned off TV news years, if not decades, ago? Isn't also why citizens today increasingly shun the TV propagandists and embrace Talk Radio and the Internet?


    Hasn't it been long and well known that Steffy, serpenthead, forehead, and the ballerina chat it up every morning in order to set the day's agenda for the State Controlled Media?

    What else do they do on the phone? Share make-up tips?

    Would you invite them or their media puppets into your home?

    Then why let them use a powerful visual media to turn your brain to leftist concrete - all mixed up and set?

    Radio and the Internet are not 'the new media'. Talk Radio and the Internet are the only media.

    TV news has devolved to the level of Cold War 'Radio Albania', a gang of smug dissemblers who keep those who would still be gulled in comfortable somnolence.

  • And Faux Conservative Joe Scarborough knows about it and promotes otherwise his show would suck more than it does.

  • NO, I DON'T remember when Bush was feeding talking points to Fox. Remind me with factual examples, dates, persons, subject matter. In other words, PROVE IT rather than just spout it!! You sound like someone just trying to justify obama and his highly unconstitutional tactics and Pravda methods by blaming REPUBS of the same thing. CHEAP SHOT! Typical liberal lame brain lies. The dem party has no business operating in America. They hate America, they worship the enemy in the White House -- who of course hates America above all else. Naive, stupid voters, with great assistance from a criminal press, elected this non-citizen, islamic terrorist into the White House. HAPPY NOW? Enjoying the CHANGE?!?

  • Went to this link provided earlier:

    http://thinkprogress.org/2008/07/26/mcclellan-fox-talking-points/

    There sure were a lot of comments from the left about how this type of behavior was so very wrong. But it's somehow ok with them now?

  • MSNBC schilling for the left - FOX schilling for the right ... honest journalism died the day the media companies realized there was no longer money in it. This roman circus makes money. Turn off your TV, or stop complaining.

  • "Anonymous" is saying GWB had influence over the media?
    Was Bush, then, a flipping MASOCHIST? The MSM despised the poor man and raked him over the proverbial coals hourly!
    This Morning Joe program is a joke which I briedly catch as I do a little channel fly-by and immediately get so repulsed I can't hit that channel changer fast enough. What the hell happened to Joe Scarborough? He used to be a decent man....has he been thoroughly tainted by the Lefties he is hanging out with over there. Turned into a wuss. He looks so self satisfied which, if he has any conservative values left, is insane. I remember when the guy had some fire in his belly.

  • Double standards prevail,Protesting against Bush is fine, protesting against Stupid-bama is racism...Raising ones voice at a town hall is inciting to riot,disrupting a convention is just being heard, or civil disobedience.....you filth on the Left be warned;we are going to take a page from your play book next year.

  • Is mindless allegiance to the state so intoxicating that give up their self-identity and self respect? Apparently so.

    At least the Soviet media had an excuse. They had no choice. The American media is shameful in that they choose to be mindless drones of the democrat party. I cannot imagine being a lapdog for a particular political party and pretend to call myself a journalist or reporter.

  • This sound's like it was an idea taken from Glenn Beck who has a phone with a direct line to the WH so they can call him and give immediate feedback for those segments it constantly refers to in the press conferences as "wrong" or "factually challenged". As it turns out the WH doesn't correct any of those "factually challenged" points, because they aren't untrue. Only MSNBC requires correction and it's an admitted mouth piece of the socialist progressive movement of the WH. Go figure.

  • It makes one wonder the purpose of NBC Management for their continuous Left-Wing philosophy.

  • The MSM are like chickens,The WH sprinkles feed on the ground and they gobble it up and poop it out.The thing about Fox,if true,(I have my doubts)then they are more guilty because REAL Americans depend on that station for the truth.I get made at them for kissing Obama's ass.There are lots of things they leave out, like Feinstein funneling money to her husbands co.

  • Perhaps Obama is being drawn and quartered in the 'government-controlled' media because in dfact the reverse is true. The neo-conservatives and zionists (christians and jews alike) control the media and they are dissatisfied with this administrations ambiguous support of Israel.

  • All Media is controlled by Jews,BUT,they kiss Obama's mocha colored ass.so,this argument holds no water.It doesn't bother me one bit if they control the Media,I just wish they did a better job.

  • This is the most asinine post ever. Hello? Fox News actually READ the exact press releases from the White House during Shrub's terms.

    Come on, this is a joke, right?

    Scott McClellan even ADMITTED they sent Fox the talking points.

    You guys are funny over here.
