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.

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.
