    For Christie and MSNBC, a Messy Divorce Plays Out in Public View

    It was a match made in moderately minded Northeast Corridor heaven.Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey needed a TV network that would burnish his bipartisan bona fides and showcase his gleefully contrarian style. MSNBC craved a Republican who cut against the party grain and lit up the screen with his everyman-ish, Springsteen-loving spontaneity.
    An on-air romance blossomed, forged over chummy strolls along the Jersey Shore and heart-to-hearts in the studio about everything from overeating to education, embodying the aisle-crossing aspirations of this partisan era.
    Now, the improbable relationship between a governor with his eyes on the White House and a network determined to break into the top tier, up to now so beneficial to both, has curdled in a spectacularly public fashion.

    Mr. Christie is confronting the worst crisis of his career, stemming from his aides’ role in shutting down approach lanes to the George Washington Bridge. The governor’s predicament is a ratings bonanza for MSNBC, whose left-leaning viewers are eating up every development in the sordid scandal.
    Over the weekend, Mr. Christie, who has appeared on MSNBC many times since taking office, angrily denounced it as a “partisan network” that is “almost gleeful in their efforts attacking” him. Christie aides have called it a “feeding frenzy.”
    “There is a difference between treating this matter seriously and seeking out the truth and irresponsibly using hearsay and conjecture without confirming the facts,” Colin Reed, a spokesman for Mr. Christie, said on Sunday. Feelings are frayed on both sides. Mika Brzezinski, a co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” who makes no secret of her affection for Mr. Christie, seemed taken aback by the governor’s harsh critique.
    “I was a little surprised when he took a jab at us,” she said in an interview on Sunday.

    What? You mean that the liberals at MSLSD are not honest in their collaborative fake friendship to Christie? Who'd have thunk it.

    I'm sorry but do you have any evidence of MSNBC not being honest about this story?

    Well, MSNBC doesn't do news they do partisan opinion shows - that's they're thing. Most cable news push their own ideology that's nothing new but MSNBC shills for Democrats. I think Christie may have started believing his own press and thought he can handle them. Now he knows.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Is it your contention that this story isn't a story worth covering?

    McCain used to think the same thing before his run....

    Who the hell knows what you were implying. But this is in the middle of your babble in the OP.

    Why not make a comment about banana trees...they have as much to do with what I said as your comment.
