Proof MSNBC Allows Select Interviewees To Script Answers To 'Questions' In Advance
Lefty journalism at it's finest, with per-rehearsed questions and scripted answers for select guests to push the agenda.
Here we have Chris Jansing from MSNBC's Jansing & Co. 'interviewing' Obama talking head Debbie Wasserman-Schultz on ObamaCare. After trashing Senator Marco Rubio and saying he has zero credibility, lying about how many Americans will be affected and saying it was their choice to change their plans and get their health coverage cancelled, she addresses the president's serial lies, saying at about 1:06 that 'at the end of the day, Americans were not misled by the president.'
Except she doesn't say 'misled'..she says 'my-zelled.'
Pretty obvious what happened. This interview was scripted in advance, and Ms. Wasserman-Schultz was reading most of the talking points from a teleprompter. 'At the end of the day' was the signal for her big climax to be fed to her, only instead of 'misled', someone mistakenly wrote something like 'mizled' and fed it into the teleprompter.
Now, it's easy to laugh at DWS, She's enough of a pillowcase that even MSNBC can't really make her look good. But the real issue here is that this is being presented an an actual interview by someone who considers herself a journalist on a network that considers itself a news outlet. This is so far out of line with even basic journalism ethics it's ludicrous.
If MSNBC and what passes for news there is your primary source of information, you might want to reconsider and open your head up a bit.
