An MSNBC “love fest”? The crew at the network which just happens to use the president’s campaign slogan in its ads might have gotten a thrill up their legs meeting with President Obama today, but we have a feeling they’re just being used. It seems the campaign that never ends needs some help selling its tax hike to the public, so the White House summoned some influential progressives in the media … and some MSNBC anchors, too.

Yep, these guys.

Rachel Maddow was there as well, but for something she termed a “hippie cabal.”

No, the Huffington Post wasn’t invited. The private meeting with progressive journalists was closed to, um,  journalists. Or was it? Mediaite is reporting that quite a few “progressive” media types were there.

With all those reporters in attendance, it’s a wonder we haven’t heard more about the meeting on the news.

Is the meeting a conflict of interest? Of course not. Have the interests of MSNBC and Obama ever been in conflict? Forward!

    I think they do want an officially state-run media.

      Yes, but the majority of the country won’t even notice. Their blinders are on for everything this guy does. Never thought I’d see the day American goes down the crapper.

    You’d think they’d be embarrassed as journalist to do something like this. They can’t even pretend to be unbiased anymore. They are officially the propaganda arm of the White House.

      to be more precise, the official arm of the (D) white house. and, i, for one, think its about time they dropped all the claims of being unbiased.

      I believe it’s called State Run Media in Cuba and China?

      Wow, you guys actually considered them unbiased BEFORE this? I think they removed that veil a long time ago. Now they’re just proudly throwing it in our faces.

      It is mind boggling to me that Americans would put up with this type of arrogance and in your face disrespect (especially after the bombing of the USS Cole and the dispicable 9/11 attacks). I wish they all would move to Iran and live under their beloved Sharia Law that they defend so whole heartedly for a while and see how much they really love coddling the Muslims and their sick, hideous, sidistic, mysogynistic, murderous, homophobic way of life. This makes absolutely no sense coming from the politically correct. SPIT!

    Actually, we should not be surprised. I remember marching in the streets during the 60s and 70s vowing to overtake ‘the administration’ — before I had to work for a living and run a small business. Well, that wish has become true for those still living with those tired slogans and empty promises. They can all come on down and join the administration. They are now “the MAN” who is ‘keepin’ you down!

    And boy have they crafted the perfect social and economic storm to achieve their ends. So, when they achieve their “progressive”
    ends…. What’s next? Cuz the “struggle” is over.

    Have they really thought about how it will play out? Remember features and benefits.. What will those be in 4 8I or even12 yrs from now?

    It’s a tradition. Remember when Huntley and Brinkley used to meet Jack Kennedy in the residence for cigars and bourbon and LBJ would keep tapping on the door but they’d just sit and giggle and not answer? Good times.

    Remember, Obama is not responsible.

    Every once in a while it is necessary to make sure all propagandists
    are telling the same lies & covering up the same things.

    As Don Imus once said of certain country music stars sleeping with country music stars that were married but not to each other. “they are a big fat can of worms covered in their own love juice”

    It is the only way to describe the relationship of Obama and the MSM.
