The leftist mainstream media is committed to a Hillary Clinton presidency. Though Mrs. Clinton makes Richard Nixon look like an honest altar boy by comparison and possesses the personal charisma of a meth-addled badger, the left is stuck in a tough spot: they are left with a scandal-plagued felon or a devout, single-minded socialist with a single, solitary issue upon which he is running.
Left with few choices, the mainstream media and the shotcallers at the top of DNC food chain have embraced Clinton.
While we have long come to expect that the mainstream media is vehemently biased against conservative viewpoints, the hacks at MSNBC have also shown that they are biased against fellow liberals.
During a segment following the latest Democratic debate, MSNBC’s Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melbel hosted a post-debate interview with Bernie Sanders’ senior adviser Tad Devine. When he finished, he turned to remote correspondent Kristen Welker who was to interview Hillary Clinton’s communications director, Jen Palmieri.
Seemingly unaware that she was live, viewers were treated to an inside glimpse into the biased media as Welker was coaching Palmieri on the questions that would be asked.
When the feed cut to Welker, she was explaining to Palmieri that she would be asking her about the Flint, Michigan, water crisis.
The feed switched back to Melbel. “Kristen go ahead, you’re live. Kristen Welker in the spin room, I believe she has the Clinton communications director with her, go ahead Kristen,” he urged.
Welker still did not know she was live and was heard clarifying, “OK, thank you. I think this is the last question.”
Melbel became somewhat flustered and repeated, “You know we have Kristen Welker, we’re looking at her, she couldn’t quite hear me before, can you hear me now? If you can go ahead.”
Welker finally understood that she was live but evidently did not know that the camera had caught her earlier prepping of her interviewee.
Welker briefly discussed the debate and then, just as she had warned she would do, pivoted to a discussion about Flint so that Palmieri could offer her prepared talking points.
The candid moment was pathetic to witness but not altogether surprising.
Not only did Sanders’ representative not seem to receive the same treatment, but one could only imagine the treatment that MSNBC would have offered representatives for Ted Cruz or Donald Trump.
