First she attacks "fake news" calling for it to be stopped, but she doesn't explain who will determine whether or not the news in question is fake, real or simply satire. I write a lot of satirical posts but I assume anyone who reads my blog can tell the difference between satire and straight reporting. People who can't tell the difference should never read The Onion or watch The Daily Show.
Now it has been revealed that the co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Mika Brzezinski was targeted by the Clinton campaign to get her "pulled off the air" during the White House presidential campaign.
During Friday's "Morning Joe" episode, Mika claimed that while Trump and Clinton battled for the White House the Clinton campaign tried to have her removed from the show. She said the incident happened after she hinted that Hillary didn't have the election in the bag as many believed. It turns out she was correct.
"I was concerned the campaign was not understanding that perhaps there was an arrogance. They needed to sort of get off their high horse and understand that this isn't over," Brzezinski said Friday. "I'll just say it: NBC got a call from the [Clinton] campaign. Like I had done something that was journalistically inappropriate or something and needed to be pulled off the air."
It's likely the Clinton campaign, knowing how far left MSNBC is, was afraid that their leftist audience would be exposed to a different point of view and perhaps sway some votes Trump's way.
But Brzezinski's revelation of the Clinton campaign's plan was priceless.
We are seeing more and more of late how the left is trying to undo our freedom of expression, in part with political correctness, and also by trying to shut up people with opposing points of view. Perhaps this will change in the new administration--we will see, but I'm skeptical.
