Sigh. We thought we cleared this up yesterday, but CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell still doesn’t get it.

Over to you Amanda Carpenter…

Hey, Norah. Next time read Twitchy and spare yourself some embarrassment!


Journalists, bloggers expose their ignorance of Senate parliamentary procedure

  • Gallatin

    Oh nora aren’t you precious? I know it’s hard for you Lame Stream Media types but please do try to keep up.

    • Jake Wilde

      She is a deer caught in the headlights. Does she delete or ignore? Maybe too many won’t see it, DOH! Twitchy you rascals!

  • stuckinIL4now

    Hey Nora, if you can’t understand this then you’re not qualified to be in an on-air TV job where you’re expected to speak intelligently about such things. Then again, I guess your level of left-bias is what gets you slimestream enablers hired. The more left-bias the better.

  • Elaine

    If Democrats are forced to talk about it, as in “debate” it finally, (which Republicans never got to do when it was shoved through) they might be forced to compromise on it, and we all know they do not want that. The only “obstructionist” in DC right now is Harry Reid. If you won’t consider de-funding at least talk about fixing it. That’s something everyone agrees on… it isn’t working!

  • Squirrel!

    And she just said it again!! Either bias or a complete moron!

    • Ruth

      Or a completely biased moron

      • Squirrel!

        That too!!

  • WhoDat

    Hey, you guys, we like voting, so we’re going to vote so we can vote.

        Ah, nothing, my bad attempt at a joke

  • gman213

    She just reads off of a teleprompter, she cant be expected to know anything. Just read Nora and the rest of us will take care of the country.

      To drive home the point, if your job is simply to “read the news” then you have an obligation not to comment publicly on it, even on social media. As a media figure, it gives LIVs the impression that you know what you’re talking about.

  • Wiki David

    Who is Normah McDonnell and why doesn’t understand how her government works?

  • Billie Slash

    Beauty is fleeting, but stupid is forever.

  • TocksNedlog

    Oy! When she used to be a regular guest on Chris Matthews’ weekend show she at least had her facts straight before spouting her left-leaning opinions. Now she doesn’t even have that? The world is going to heck.

    • Adela Wagner

      I think we already passed “heck” quite a few years ago.

  • Michael Bird

    Government stuff is hard.

  • Jack Deth

    Norah O’Donnell:

    Deliberately, blissfully ignorant. And proud of it!

    Odd thing is. That seemed to be the snark point du jour yesterday. For a zero sum gain.

    • MNWoman

      Yeah, I am not really sure these people are unaware of what Cruz was voting on (the motion to proceed), but they are probably rightly assuming most people do not understand what happened.

      Therefore, they can try to discredit him with this nonsense.

      • Jack Deth

        Hi, MN:

        I was listening to Chris Plante this morning on DC’s WMAL. And he was reading from a recent study that announced that 62% of college students do not know what the Emancipation Proclamation is or what it entailed.

        And 57% percent do not know the lengths of terms in office of the House and the Senate.

        So, confusion is both a staple and a given amongst liberals. Especially young Low Information Voters. Whom Obama is going to have to rely upon to smooth out ObamaCare’s rougher edges. And make it more popular and less panic inducing.

  • notenoughtime

    Wow, good to know that those reporting the news are easily confused. No wonder facts are hard to report!

  • Richard Wayne

    “Bless her heart.”

  • World B. Free

    Norah O’Donnell: Beauty without brains. But I guess that’s typical of people in the info-tainment industry.

  • FilleGitane

    Someone didn’t pay attention at the Kommunity Kollege.

  • nc ✓s & balances

    I’m no big time network “journalist” but if I didn’t understand something I was reporting on, I don’t know, maybe I would FIND OUT what it was all about. Ya think?

    • Green Eyed Lady

      I saw alot of this Norah confusion/ignorance all over the interwebs yesterday….

      the lefties are trying to *Palinize* Cruz as hard as they can….good luck with that… fools.

  • TJ

    That tweet could be taken to be more of a teaser to tune in to the show to find the real answer why. Rather than a blind question to twitter for the answer. If one tunes in they will show that it was not a vote for cloture and go though all the step need to get the CR passed. That vote was step one of many, Including that if the senate does pass the CR with Obamacare it has to go back to the House to vote again as both bills must be the same.

  • Unicorns and Rainbows

    Does anybody really expect libs to understand anything about legislative procedure, free markets vs. regulated markets, existing gun laws and the differences in specific guns, existing immigration law, etc. etc.?

  • right_on

    Nora…just for the record, when you utter a thought for everyone to read or hear, it’s no longer a thought…some things you should probably ask about before you disseminate, and expose your in-expertise, (AKA: incompetence) in matters about which you report.

  • BigTBoom

    Procedural, cloture…same difference for her I guess. Never mind the vote result was 100-0.

  • Lindy Belt

    Completely done on purpose. As usual, libs speak to their uninformed following who will go forth and parrot to their friends, “I saw on the news that Cruz did all that then voted yes anyway, republicans are so dumb!”

  • LegalizeShemp

    The liberal media has no interest in any sort of reality, they were hired to push the left wing agenda by their radical leftist masters.

  • Zathras11 @B5

    Norah O’Donnell is really cute for an idiot.

  • joejohnson291

    Isn’t she married to that fry cook guy down at the Krusty Krab?
