NBC's Jay Barbree's career may be over

Via Newsbusters, watch as he crosses a line, that line which states “Thou shalt not speak ill of The One”:

Did you catch the MSNBC anchorette quickly step up and speak on behalf of the Obama administration?  So telling… of course, anyone who disbelieves that MSNBC is anything but a megaphone for Obama needs his or her head examined but still, it’s eye-opening to hear someone just come right out there in the open with it.

I loved The Anchoress’ comments on this:

Because it is MSNBC’s job to defend and protect the Obama administration. And, apparently, to speak on their behalf.

I may have complained about the skepticism that the press brought to every word that came out of the Bush administration’s mouth, but at least that was in character; the press are supposed to disbelieve the establishment, not shill for them.

    As Chrissy Matthews once said, MSNBC “has a vested interest in the success of the Obama administration”.

    Good Lord…the TRUTH accidentally gets out on MSNBC. Heads will roll!

  • Molon Labe

    Wow, the anchorette literally said she was speaking “on behalf of the Obama administration”.

  • epador – “Was there a time when the Press spoke for the People?”

    My memory is a bit hazy but I think it was when Town Criers were in use.

  • fliteking

    When the anchor said “Speaking on behalf of the Obama administration” …. should we take this as an admission by the MSM or just a slip?

    Silly me, just a slip.
