Organizations hardly matter anymore. All you need is the average citizen, under anonymity to say something unpolite for the media storm to happen.

    Did you just bring up Benghazi in a topic about a cheerio commercial?

    If you think those channels are about getting people elected, there is some bad news for you. They are about making a buck or two. Fox's ratings run circles around MSNBC yet Obama won the election.

    I would imagine that Twitter detail goes to some over-achieving intern.

    It's just another in a long line of derisive and divisive statements to come out of MSNBC...

    I'm waiting for when they're gonna give Ayo Kimathi his own show...

    You don't mind a little fighting back do you cj ?
    Good afternoon NIMBY - hope all is well.

    I'm not aware of anyone bashing Obama about his race - I am aware of lots of liberals defending the indefensible with respect to Obama, dismissing criticism as racially motivated.

    And fight back all you want - debate is nothing if there's no disagreement.

    So the point you tried to make previously was fatuous nonsense? Duly noted.

    What a puke !
    Could be - I don't pay a lot of attention to inconsequential, minor, representatives - and I don't get the US cable/political channels here, with the exception of CNN.
