    Anybody notice how absymal CNBC’s ratings have gotten lately? This has to be getting serious attention. Surprised to see there’ve been no media articles.

    Is Bloomberg gaining?

    Wow…everybody down except for Fox News.

    Do you suppose Americans are finally catching on to the Obama BS machine? and shutting them OFF??

  • Ratboy

    It is beyond even wasting the commentary on the failure of MSNBC. If I was a stock holder I would be pissed!

  • Chriscee

    Gallup says only 47% of Americans approve of Obama while 45% DISAPPROVE…that is NOT good for Obama.

    Other polling shows only 32% of Americans think America is headed in the right direction.

    56% of Americans view the Federal Government as a threat to individual rights.

    80% of Americans Say It Will Be Difficult for Young People To Find Summer Jobs

    68% of Americans Say Rewarding Hard Work More Important Than Income Equality

    Golly Gee…CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield had two hairs out of place today during her broadcast. Miss Barbie Doll with her $2000 designer glasses and two hairs misplaced. Heaven forbid!

    Banfield is another liberal OBama cheerleader who was formally with MSNBC. CNN should send her back to MSNBC or let her go to her bar band permanently.

    CNN hires people from MSNBC and are expecting viewers…give me a break.

  • moncon

    I see we have a differing of views……Go BRUINS!

  • Chriscee

    I am going to POST this again here today…because Bev was wanting to see it…..

    For Bev:

    This was posted from yesterdays’s IRS hearings at the McDermott house website.

    “Freedom of speech is, no doubt, one of most important fundamental rights. It is unacceptable in every way for a government agency to unfairly scrutinize any organization because of their political affiliations. The IRS has unequivocally made a mistake here. I am sorry your organizations were singled out like this, and while I think this was a case of foolish account management and dangerously careless shortcuts, I will not hesitate to say that the IRS was wrong.

    “But as I listen to this discussion, I’d like to remind everyone what we are talking about here. None of your organizations were kept from organizing or silenced. We are talking about whether or not the American taxpayers would subsidize your work. We are talking about a tax break.

    “I get the feeling that many of you and my Republican colleagues don’t just believe you should be free from political targeting, but that you should be free from scrutiny of any kind.

    “The purpose of C3 and C4 tax exemptions is to enable easier promotion of public good, not political work. It is the responsibility of the IRS to determine which groups are choosing the correct exempt status and which are trying to manipulate the system to avoid taxes and hide political organizations and their campaign donors. Without oversight, a status meant for charities becomes a machine for political money laundering. And if you think that’s farfetched, you can talk to Speaker Gingrich. He was fined $300,000 by the Ethics Committee for funneling money from a C3 to his Political Action Committee.

    “Each of your groups is highly political. From opposing the President’s healthcare reform, to ab.ortion restrictions, to g.ay marriage, you’re all entrenched in some of the most controversial political issues in this country – and with your applications you are asking the American public to pay for that work. Many of you host and endorse candidates. The line between permitted political activity and non-permitted political activity can be very fine, and it’s important that tax payers know which side you fall on.

    “If there was an organization promoting taxpayer funding for ab.ort.ions, wouldn’t you want to be sure they weren’t using their tax-free money to campaign for a candidate? What about a group that wanted to promote voting without I.D.’s? What if, in the midst of an increase of Communist candidates, new Com.munist clubs wanted tax-free status? Wouldn’t you want to be sure that the self-declared tax-free classifications of those groups were correct?

    “The mistake here was that the staff organizing the applications used the names of the groups rather than the work they do – and asked improper questions to figure that out. It was wrong.

    “But let’s not get lost. During the Bush administration liberal groups were targeted without any concern by Mr. Issa or anyone else in this committee. The Republicans are looking for a conspiracy where there isn’t one. Mr. Issa said he can feel in his gut that someone’s broken the law. Which is more likely: that midlevel employees took stupid, irresponsible shortcuts or that there’s an administration-wide plot to take down community organizers? Let’s not forget that this all happened under Republican IRS Commissioners and was investigated by a Republican Inspector General.

    “What happened to you was unfair and incredibly inconvenient, but it was a mistake. Our job is to make sure this never happens again. Anything else, like the circus happening at the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is political theatre.”

    Came from McDermotts own house website.

    MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” should be renamed “Sunset Joe.”

    The Sun seems to be fading on the show.

  • Chriscee


    Ashley Banfield never used to be like that. I can remember on the morning of 9/11/2001

    I then watched msnbc….that morning….Greg Jarrett and Chris Jansing were anchoring the news. Then the planes flew into the buildings…..After both planes had flew into the World Trade Center….and people were trying to go help…Ashley Banfield was not far from the WTC.

    She was covered in soot….from head to toe.

    The Ashley Banfield of today…is NOT the Ashley Banfield of yesterday. I don’t know what happened to her….but she sure has changed….and has gotten very very politically ugly…like Chris Matthews, Al Sharpton, Rachel Maddow and Ed Schutlz.

    I feel badly for them….if they think being poltically ugly at reporting the news..is going to get them viewership. msnBS and CNN both should be looking at their ratings….seeing that the hatred they have…is losing them 1000’s of viewers.

    Fox Nation has a video clip of Megyn Kelly interview McDermott today on her show..

    Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA.) raised some eyebrows at Tuesday’s House Ways & Means Committee hearing, where conservative groups told lawmakers about their experiences with being unfairly targeted by the IRS after applying for tax-exempt status. He drew the ire of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) when he argued that the targeting by the IRS was not based on politics, but was an effort to make sure that a status meant for charities was not being abused by political organizations.

    Megyn Kelly took on McDermott yesterday for appearing to, as Ryan stated, blame the victims of the IRS’s targeting.

    He spoke with Megyn Kelly today on America Live, and said anyone who took that away from his statement was not listening to his whole point.

    “I said five times that the questions that they were asked were egregious, they were out of bounds, they shouldn’t have been asked,” said McDermott. In trying to clarify yesterday’s statements, he said he was trying to point out that “once you ask for a tax exemption, you open yourself up to being questioned.” He said the only group that he knows of to be denied was a liberal organization called Merge America.

    “Who cares?” Megyn asked, saying there’s not much difference between being denied and being kept in limbo with no answer for three years in some cases.

    “They can still operate. They can still collect money. They can put out advertisements and use their First Amendment right,” the congressman replied. “Nobody in the IRS stopped them from doing that.”

    On the contrary, Kelly asserted, citing one of the conservative group’s claims that they lost a $30,000 donation because of their status limbo. “That was not under testimony or under oath,” McDermott dismissed.

    “He was lying,” the Fox host asked, “is this your answer to that?”

    “Miss Kelly, you are putting words in my mouth,” he answered. “You are putting words in my mouth. Stop it.”

    And now WE the people….NEED to speak EVEN louder in November 2014….and oust Democrats who have ZERO regards for our constitution.

    And I think Democrats have no clue what is coming at them. If they thought the wave of 2010 was bad…just wait for the wave of 2014.
