MSNBC - No Wonder No One Watches MSNBC...probably written by Media Matters!

This just shows how MSNBC's own prejudices impact their ability to communicate in any way other than a totally biased, prejudicial way....Ms Hall needs to be taken off the air...

Politics CNN Host Slams MSNBC’s Treatment of Guest Who Refused to Debate ‘Non-Story’ of Romney Bullying

With a few notable exceptions, it often seems like at any given time, you can switch on any of the major news networks and see almost exactly the same coverage from each.

However, CNN’s Howard Kurtz seemingly broke ranks on Reliable Sources Sunday, slamming MSNBC’s treatment of libertarian author Tim Carney last week.

(Family of Romney’s Alleged Bully Victim Speaks Out: ‘The Portrayal of John is Factually Incorrect’)

Referring specifically to MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall– who turned off Carney’s microphone and unleashed a barrage of criticism after he refused to debate the “non-story” of Romney’s alleged bullying– Kurtz asked: “does Hall only want guests who agree with her handling of every story?”

Watch the clip, via CNN, below:

“All the Washington Examiner’s Tim Carney did was challenge her coverage of the report on Mitt Romney’s bullying incident back in prep school,” Kurtz remarked.

He continued: “I’m sorry, it was Tamron Hall who was being insulting by silencing him…Carney was perfectly entitled to say that, in his opinion, the story was being hyped.”

In response to Kurtz’s rhetorical question, “does Hall only want guests who agree with her handling of every story?,” Newsbusters’ Noel Sheppard responded:

Actually, Howie, that’s what every MSNBC anchor wants.

Unfortunately for their viewers, management agrees with this philosophy and typically accedes to such demands.

Is Kurtz really just starting to get this?
