Morning Joe: Sarah Palin? Abu Ghraib? Never heard of em.

My last post yes­ter­day talked about how the media would be ignor­ing Palin’s appear­ance in Wis­con­sin yes­ter­day. Since Politico had an arti­cle on the sub­ject I thought there might be a chance that Morn­ing Joe would bring it up in their Politico play­book section.

They man­aged to play a link clip of Don­ald Trump hit­ting Mitt Rom­ney going into it but Politico story or no not only is the Palin speech not to be found, but her appear­ance in Wis­con­sin was not even worth mentioning.

As a said media Bias is mostly made up of sins of omis­sion, but even more amaz­ing to me was Joe and Mika’s sec­ond omis­sion in that same politico segment.

They talked about Democ­rats hav­ing con­fi­dence in Texas and the can­di­dacy of Gen­eral Ricardo Sanchez for the Sen­ate and how he would appeal to so many groups and even included a photo.

Yet the Abu Ghraib con­nec­tion that as Ed Driscoll points out was worth 32 straight NYT front page sto­ries is not men­tioned once.

Morn­ing Joe has hit the Afghanistan War over and over again, (mostly try­ing to push Rolling Stone sto­ries that have got­ten no trac­tion) yet the idea that the democ­rats are going to run the high­est rank­ing gen­eral involved in Abu Ghraib is not a story? How can you tell that story and leave that out? If they’re not ashamed they ought to be but I guess they pre­fer to para­phrase Teddy Roo­sevelt like so:

Jour­nal­ism be damned, Demo­c­ra­tic elec­toral prospects have to be pro­tected for the good of the country.

Joe spends a lot of time dis­miss­ing blog­gers on that show, now I know why. They have to, after all what would they do if their view­ers knew that peo­ple like Ed Mor­ris­sey were report­ing facts that they were ignoring?

Update: It’s worse than I thought. Politico men­tioned the Abu Ghraib con­nec­tion in their story yet they still didn’t touch it on air? Even I’m amazed.

Update 2: Insta­lanche, Hi all, in addi­tion to check­ing out my lat­est radio show, find out when threats of arson are less inter­est­ing than lost pup­pies, why we need to drop celibacy require­ment from pub­lic school teach­ers, and the sign that Don­ald Trumps attacks on Obama have been effective.

My last post yesterday talked about how the media would be ignoring Palin’s appearance in Wisconsin yesterday. Since Politico had an article on the subject I thought there might be a chance that Morning Joe would bring it up in their Politico playbook section.

They managed to play a link clip of Donald Trump hitting Mitt Romney going into it but Politico story or no not only is the Palin speech not to be found, but her appearance in Wisconsin was not even worth mentioning.

As a said media Bias is mostly made up of sins of omission, but even more amazing to me was Joe and Mika’s second omission in that same politico segment.

They talked about Democrats having confidence in Texas and the candidacy of General Ricardo Sanchez for the Senate and how he would appeal to so many groups and even included a photo.

Yet the Abu Ghraib connection that as Ed Driscoll points out was worth 32 straight NYT front page stories is not mentioned once.

Morning Joe has hit the Afghanistan War over and over again, (mostly trying to push Rolling Stone stories that have gotten no traction) yet the idea that the democrats are going to run the highest ranking general involved in Abu Ghraib is not a story? How can you tell that story and leave that out? If they’re not ashamed they ought to be but I guess they prefer to paraphrase Teddy Roosevelt like so:

Journalism be damned, Democratic electoral prospects have to be protected for the good of the country.

Joe spends a lot of time dismissing bloggers on that show, now I know why. They have to, after all what would they do if their viewers knew that people like Ed Morrissey were reporting facts that they were ignoring?

Update: It’s worse than I thought. Politico mentioned the Abu Ghraib connection in their story yet they still didn’t touch it on air? Even I’m amazed.

Update 2: Instalanche, Hi all, in addition to checking out my latest radio show, find out when threats of arson are less interesting than lost puppies, why we need to drop celibacy requirement from public school teachers, and the sign that Donald Trumps attacks on Obama have been effective.
