Kucinich Slammed by NBC

Yeah, this doesn't come as a suprise. NBC, the flagship of the MSM, has in effect called Kucinich a hypocrite because he didn't support the Clinton impeachment.

Jesus, give me a fucking break, already. The Clinton impeachment was, no matter how you look at it, a purely political act. Clinton did not commit the Constitutionally-required "high crimes and misdemeanors" that the current bunch does daily, with impunity.

This is another example of the SCLM in action. Watch for this to be a talking point from the right wing, stridently repeated ad nauseum whenever the impeachment is mentioned.

You'd expect this kind of shit from Faux News, but I'd like to live in a world where the major media was doing its job and truly acting as the Fourth Estate instead of a bunch of drooling suckups whining at the jackbooted feet of their overlords in the administration.

And they wonder why the level of trust in the news media has declined over the years.

Maybe it's just me, but MSNBC seems to have declined dramatically, just in the past couple of years or so, almost to the point they're nothing more more than "Fox Lite."

Can you say advetising revenues? I remember landing on my local paper's website to see a colored cartoon-like pic of a predator drone.
