CNN & MSNBC Praying for the fire to spread to Fox.

Last night I fell asleep on the couch, when I woke up my son was sit­ting on the far cush­ion. As I turned over I asked him to put on Chanel 53 (MSNBC) hop­ing to see what Morn­ing Joe had to say about the pas­sage of Cut Cap and Bal­ance in the house (with some Demo­c­ra­tic votes), or what they have to say about the Gang of six plan (which even the Hill admits is short on specifics) Today I turned on Morn­ing Joe before the 7 a.m. hour (about 6:45 a.m.) and found myself sur­prised. What I saw was the British Par­lia­ment debat­ing the News of the World Stuff.

I then turned on CNN and the “Ques­tion time” debate from Par­lia­ment was being tele­vised as well. I had to go to Fox to see any­thing resem­bling US news.

It wasn’t until 7:05 a.m. that MSNBC decided to go away from Par­lia­ment to switch to the debt ceil­ing issue with a promise to keep mon­i­tor­ing what is going on in Eng­land, and true enough at 7:22 they went back with a split screen to go to Mar­tan Bashir who some­how used it as a con­nec­tion to Michelle Bach­mann and the GOP.

Now the scan­dal at News of the World is cer­tainly a legit story, but why you might won­der are they giv­ing this so much time with huge news going on here?

It’s very sim­ple, MSNBC, CNN and the like have failed to defeat Fox in the rat­ings and more impor­tantly have failed to con­trol the news.

For exam­ple any­one with an inter­net con­nec­tion knows about the Gun­walker scan­dal and the extent that the Obama Admin­is­tra­tion has with­held info that would con­tra­dict their offi­cial story even through it has not drawn any atten­tion from MSNBC or CNN.

They see this scan­dal in Eng­land as a chance to dis­credit Fox in the US. It is watch­ing a fire and hop­ing it spreads to a neighbor’s house that you hate.

The irony that MSNBC is cry­ing about media moguls when it was until their pur­chase by Com­cast owed by a cor­po­ra­tion with con­nec­tions with the cur­rent admin­is­tra­tion in White House that man­aged to avoid pay­ing taxes last year is rather huge, but that doesn’t mat­ter. It is all about the goal of once again being the gate-​keepers of infor­ma­tion that the pub­lic is allowed to see.

Update: At the 8 a.m. hour which usu­ally repeats the 6 a.m. hour, it is all Rupert all the time. Of course!

Last night I fell asleep on the couch, when I woke up my son was sitting on the far cushion. As I turned over I asked him to put on Chanel 53 (MSNBC) hoping to see what Morning Joe had to say about the passage of Cut Cap and Balance in the house (with some Democratic votes), or what they have to say about the Gang of six plan (which even the Hill admits is short on specifics) Today I turned on Morning Joe before the 7 a.m. hour (about 6:45 a.m.) and found myself surprised. What I saw was the British Parliament debating the News of the World Stuff.

I then turned on CNN and the “Question time” debate from Parliament was being televised as well. I had to go to Fox to see anything resembling US news.

It wasn’t until 7:05 a.m. that MSNBC decided to go away from Parliament to switch to the debt ceiling issue with a promise to keep monitoring what is going on in England, and true enough at 7:22 they went back with a split screen to go to Martan Bashir who somehow used it as a connection to Michelle Bachmann and the GOP.

Now the scandal at News of the World is certainly a legit story, but why you might wonder are they giving this so much time with huge news going on here?

It’s very simple, MSNBC, CNN and the like have failed to defeat Fox in the ratings and more importantly have failed to control the news.

For example anyone with an internet connection knows about the Gunwalker scandal and the extent that the Obama Administration has withheld info that would contradict their official story even through it has not drawn any attention from MSNBC or CNN.

They see this scandal in England as a chance to discredit Fox in the US. It is watching a fire and hoping it spreads to a neighbor’s house that you hate.

The irony that MSNBC is crying about media moguls when it was until their purchase by Comcast owed by a corporation with connections with the current administration in White House that managed to avoid paying taxes last year is rather huge, but that doesn’t matter. It is all about the goal of once again being the gate-keepers of information that the public is allowed to see.

Update: At the 8 a.m. hour which usually repeats the 6 a.m. hour, it is all Rupert all the time. Of course!
