- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
If your thread title had been CABLE NEWS NETWORKS ARE ALL SICK...then I'd buy your premise.
But I would add "ALL RADIO TALK SHOWS" are sick along with your premise that MSNBC is sick.
And I'm not excluding any because of their respective political leanings. I MEAN ALL are.
They're selling the public agendas and outrageous "opinions" masquerading them as facts....or viable information. When in FACT they are disseminating pure bull****. ALL OF THEM!
What is astonishing to me is that people freely accept all that is said as fact rather than mostly opinion. And they believe that bull****.

BTW the BBC is the only one of those news organisations that regularly apologises if and when its coverage fails to report accurately or with due impartiality. When was the last time Fox or MSNBC apologised for its partisan hackery?
"The crisis will end when fear changes sides" - Pablo Iglesias Turrión
"Austerity is used as a cover to reconfigure society and increase inequality and injustice." - Jeremy Corbyn
Oh...I get it...more partisan bull****...
Well, just as I thought. Now your "lean" has been disclosed.
If you want to buy into the right - left nonsense...be my guest. They're all ****ed up...no matter what the political area, affilitation, party...etc.
Drink all the propaganda kool-aid you wish.
