DeLay Schools Lauer on MSM Bias: 'Amazing Double-Standard'

Take the time to read this interview. It is PERFECT.
Delay owns Lauer.

He makes a lot of points I make on this site.
1. Republican scandals last weeks and months in the media. Democratic scandals last a few days.
2. My favorite point: Republicans vote out people in scandal, Democrats do not.

I found DeLay's tactics to be rather diversionary and a not-so-clever way to avoid discussing the subject at hand. He was briefed on the subject at hand prior to the interview and had ample time to refuse to appear.

His whining and protestations were juvenile- Rep. Jefferson's "odd banking scheme" received plenty of press and certainly was not reported for a single day as DeLay would like to believe.

If you bill yourself as a holier than thou party tht touts personal responsibility, family values, and the belief that homosexuality is a sin, one should expect these questions.

I saw the interview live this morning, and would have to agree with Andy. The subject of the interview was turmoil in the Republican party, so of course the listing of scandals would be limited to those by R's.

Nothing new in DeLays diversions; par for the course for all pols. I would note that Lauer was, in fact, his usual snarky self, derisively laughing off DeLay, but who would expect otherwise.

Realism said...

So, in your world, anytime the media reports on a Republican scandal without giving equal time to a Democratic scandal it's bias?

Sounds like you are arguing for the fairness doctrine.

Jim said...

Jimspice has it all correct. Even the NewsBuster bullshit version shows that DeLay is full of crap and simply trying to divert Lauer from the subject he was invited to talk about. The only thing DeLay accomplishes is to do just that.

The Game said...

Realism, that was actually a good jab...:)
And I agree Delay didn't want to talk about the issue, but his point is still valid.

Andy said...

Game is now in favor of the Fairness doctrine.....interesting.

He had no point other than to whine and obfuscate.

Isn't that the truth. Cold Cash Jefferson is still in Congress, and we don't hear a peep from the media.

BTW, did you know that Louisiana has a GDP of 141 Billion, and 127 Billion has been spent just to rebuild New Orleans? Where is the money going? Louisiana is the corrupt Democrat state par excellence. Note we don't see these problems in Republican Florida, which has been hit by six hurricanes during the Bush administration.

Simple, Jason.

The neocons have a vested interest in keeping Florida intact, whereas they needed Louisiana swept clean to begin redesigning it in THEIR image.

The neocons have no use for those damn lazy Negroes when they can drown tens of thousands of them and bury them next door, in mass graves, in Republican Haley Barbour's Mississippi.

Get away with it? Of course, they have GOTTEN away with it.

Talk about "planned shrinkage".

That's right and many more people are seeing just how juvenile the entire radical right is. Wambulance chasers. America is finished with the neocons. Some of the original organizers of the movement have said as much. When the right throws out the radicals and gets back to real conservatism they will be able to start rebuilding their party. As long as they want to cherry pick crap and cry about the non existant "liberal/driveby media" they will be forgotten. Rational people can see how even the New York Times was instrumental in the radical lies and deception that have driven Bush and whatever popularity that they have. The MSM is wildly balanced to the right. Most see that and whining and acting like you are some kind of huge media conspiracy victim, in light of the facts, will just make people look at the radicals as the new tinfoil hat people. Give up Game, the liberal media conspiracy is long past and the cause is lost. Mainly because it doesn't exist anymore. Not to say it never was the liberal media but if there was that was many years ago when you were still a school age kid.



unrelated question: Do you still need the word verification if you are monitoring all posts?

"The neocons have no use for those damn lazy Negroes"

In Florida, about 15% of the population is black and 15% of the population is Hispanic. Jeb Bush is the governor of Florida, which has been hit by six hurricanes during his brother's administration.

This is more of an issue of competence as the state level, and not a matter of racism. Mayor Nagin did promise to keep New Orleans as a "chocolate city," which doesn't send a friendly message to non-blacks, but I don't think that's the kind of racism you meant to bring up.

hashfanatic said...

"but I don't think that's the kind of racism you meant to bring up."

The problem is, jason, that the kind of racism in New Orleans killed as many, if not more, Americans during Katrina, if you go by time lapse, as the reverse racism against whites did.

Katrina was a disgrace, and will go down in history as one of the most stunning domestic failures of the Bush Crime Family's hateful agenda toward Americans of every stripe.

Marshall Art said...

I have basically just this ad hominem:

Hash, you're an idiot.

I looked up the numbers as I've told you in a previous post and there's not "tens of thousands" of blacks killed by Katrina, and not that many when adding up all the deaths. Afterward, you simply crapped on my comments without any supporting links or info of your own, only your wild assertions and accusations.

The Katrina situation will go down as the greatest failure of state and local government to support their own infrastructure and the devastation such failures can cause.

hashfanatic said...

Yeah, dumbass:

Bodies dumped in mass graves are ALWAYS documented and accounted for in statistics...

Marshie, there's no need for you to pretend to concern about these dead negroes....they are AMERICANS, after all.

Just focus on the fact that the Lancet now reports the Iraqi death toll now surpasses one million...

I wonder if they will get reparations and museums in every American city?

Traitorous wretch, you are.
