The Obama administration has been happy to attack Romney based on lies and half-truths, but its concerning when so-called news anchors jump on the bandwagon. And yet, that’s exactly what is happening. On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell follows the talking points of the White House in her interview with New Hampshire Governor John Sununu, during which she tried to defend the debunked “outsourcer-in-chief” attacks on Mitt Romney.
“Isn’t it a winning issue for the White House, fundamentally, granted that the PolitiFact folks and the Washington Post pointing out that the President’s campaign ad on that issue had a lot of questions and a lot of questionable attacks?” Mitchell asked in the interview.
“But they said it was wrong. A lot of questionable tactics is not right, it was wrong,” Sununu responded.
Glenn, Pat, and Stu played the segment on radio this morning.
“From the very beginning she is just struggling so hard to make something out of the lies the White House is continuing to spin,” Pat said in response.
“Here’s the deal: (MSNBC) You put yourself out of business, we’ll continue to grow, and then we’ll move Mercury into 30 Rock. I have no problem with that,” Glenn said.
“Because we’ll have so many viewers because you’ll have none,” Glenn told Mitchell.
