Obligatory desperate MSNBC exploding bus publicity stunt

Obligatory desperate MSNBC exploding bus publicity stunt

Hey, it’s working.

Martin Bashir is getting more attention than he has since, um, since … Help me out here, I know he’s done something before.

Bashir is da bomb.

What the HELL is it with all these foreign-born “pundits”?

Not one has a working brain. Get ’em off my lawn…!!!

This is an interesting clip from Bashir, considering the posts that Ken at Popehat is currently doing. Should anything happen to Mitt’s bus, lawyer Carreon appears to have said that Bashir would be responsible. No?

Local media in Detroit is in full liberal bloom, every liberal initiative is long waited and cheered by everyone, no one ever expresses an opposite opinion or viewpoint.
And there’s never a negative sentiment towards Obama’s policies, blunders or trending national scandals either… they just wait until Obama responds and that’s the final say.
Its pathetic.

One funny thing yesterday though, I was scanning for Michigan Outdoors on PBS DPTV or whatever and there was a donation drive…
They showed the call-in phone operators just sitting there, no one calling in…
Hey, they are just sitting there because you’re not calling … dead air watching them sit there.
It was hilarious.

    I miss Sonny Elliot.

      Heh. Detroit native here. I remember Sonny well. Remember when he’d pull off the detachable Keewenau Peninsula? And I’m visiting family in the Keewenau this summer. I’ll salute Sonny’s memory as we pass through Ahmeek.

You don’t remember Bashir? He did the “gotcha” interview with Princess Diana 20 years or so ago.

All of these British press people who have moved here were SCORNED in their own countries and fired. They got their jobs here because Americans seem to think that a British accent means someone is smart.
Now we are getting their socialist U.K. bull shoved down our throats on every network.

Trust me, Brits think they are superior to everyone, including Americans.
I should know. I’m married to one.

    A Scotsman walking through a field, sees a man drinking water from a pool with his hand.

    The Scotsman man shouts ‘ Awa ye feel hoor thatâs full Oâ coos Sharn’
    (Don’t drink the water, it’s full of cow s ** t.)

    The man shouts back ‘I’m English. Speak English, you fool. I don’t understand you’.

    The Scotsman man shouts back ‘Use both hands, you’ll get more in.’

    He’s british ANd a reporter? l thought he played 3rd for the lndians in the late 70’s. OK glove , weak stick? Couldn’t go to his left? Wasn’t up for much more than a cup of coffee? Whats he doing on MSNBC?

    Tamms – OMG he is a Brit? I hope you have more than one. I am getting confused.

    prefaced by “Who Is Martin Bashir?” [facetiously] as well as the “Who is MSNBC? [also facetious — I absolutely do not watch anything on that network]

    ….It’s “The Accent”

    think of your favorite “Call Now, Operators are standing by” TV Hawker. Several years ago but not so much today, two of the three hawkers had what seemed to be “Brit” accents.
    Knowing they were Liverpool “cockney’ accents if anything, my analytical conclusion was that “Market Research Analysts” had determined a ‘Brit” accent would sell more product.

    If you ponder that keep in mind that it’s the same early twentieth century source going back to the Wilson Administration for “Act now and get two for $14.95” throwaway product TV commercials AND for Journalism AND for political advertising.

    Brit Accents??? (one of) My favorite TV anchor is American Cit British accented Stuart Varney of Fox Business Channel. ..Along with Brooklyn accented Neal Cavuto.

    Predominate accent of the American Left is “The Neutral Midwestern Accent” which as it happens is my own natural accent. It is in fact the 10 generations of old “New England Accent”.

    As another example Sara Palin’s accent is 3rd plus generation Minnesota twang Scandanavian, for the obscure reason that a bunch of Minnesotans were sent to Alaska as teachers in the thirties.

    Think Accents.
    Think Principle.

    Picture TV Political ads in the same vein as “Call now operators are standing by”.

    Okay, I’ll get off the soapbox, no pun intended.

Bashir hasn’t looked this stupid since he went on the air wearing an ascot.

As the apparent Republican Presidential nominee, this should rate Martin Bashir the obligatory visit by the Secret Service.

Henry Hawkins | June 15, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Whereas FOX News seems to have a penchant for blond beauties, the rest of cable news (CNN, MSNBC, etc) feeds the diversity monkey with British accents. But, if you haven’t a British accent you’d better have an exotic, foreign sounding name. Alas, being African American simply isn’t exotic enough.

What do we expect them to promote on, journalistic skill, experience, and integrity?

I don’t blame Bashir for this video on Romney for the same reason I don’t blame babies for shitting in their diapers. It’s what they do. This is also why TV ‘news’ celebrities are only seen from the waist up.

Tokyo police on Friday captured the last fugitive from the 1995 sarin gas attack on the world’s busiest subway system by the doomsday cult Aum Shinrikyo, Japanese media reported.

The arrest of Katsuya Takahashi at an all-night Internet and comic book cafe brings to a close one of the longest-running manhunts in Japanese history and could shed new light on the subway attack and other crimes attributed to the cult, authorities said.

“… an all-night Internet and comic book cafe …”
Never underestimate the power of porn.

    I have lived in Japan. Have you seen Japanese adult comic books? I have… Misogynistic violence against women by the busload.

      No, that can’t be! Only Americans treat women badly! You MUST be misinformed…

      BannedbytheGuardian in reply to VotingFemale. | June 16, 2012 at 12:32 am

      Oh yes -but it ain’t working . Japanese women are very funny smart & almost always beautiful.

      The men not so much I have a soft spot for the Iron Chef Rich guy compere & Shintaro.

      Maybe the gene pool was decimated by WW2 & only the feeble males are left. They were the fiercest of opponents then.

@VotingFemale Earth to the #LoonyBin named @MSNBC: If your exploding Romney Bus video incites that reality, @SarahPalinUSA looms in your future as POTUS

This is no doubt the cornerstone of MSNBC’s latest attempt to Lean Forward, which we all know is the prerequisite move of a drunk, just before he face-plants.

MSNBC: A Self-Effacing Metaphor a Minute, 24-Hours a Day!

9thDistrictNeighbor | June 15, 2012 at 7:21 pm

So since a certain other candidate flies around on a big airplane he could intertwine similar images involving aircraft? This is sick.

Bashir needs to go back to what he was good at, interviewing aging musicians trying to better their image(he did Michael Jackson interview many years ago). I now I must go smack myself for knowing that tidbit.

So MSNBC is freaking out over a reporter asking the president a question and they fine with showing mock up the campaign bus of his opponent exploding…..
These are very sick and disturbed people.

I attribute it to the phenomenon of “British narration”

You know, every documentary, every “official” report on PBS or NPR had it-

Proper English, well spoken, slow, Booooring–

Like reading from Encyclopedia Britannica..

Hence, if Romney’s bus has yet to explode, it should. And, will-

Read about it in the 2015 version of Encyclopedia Britannica.

Bashir is a fool. Any self-respecting Brit knows instinctively buses are best suited for driving full loads of barristers off cliffs

Seriously. Nobody watches these clowns. More people have probably watched this clod on this web site than on MSNBC…

MSNBC: No class and no viewers…

This is far worse than Neil Munro’s unprofessionalism. Bashir should be fired together with everyone who shares responsibility for that segment.

English born Pakistani

Bashir is da bomb.

Umm, Marty urdu, bombs? I mean, uhh, It’s in your blood..

Martin Bashir is getting more attention than he has since, um, since … Help me out here, I know he’s done something before.

Michael Jackson documentary. And great gobs of batsh*t crazy political commentary.

    Monkeys are sacred in India

      But he is Pakistani.

        Ragspierre in reply to EBL. | June 16, 2012 at 12:10 pm

        Monkeys are No. 1 chop-chop in Pakistan.

        BannedbytheGuardian in reply to EBL. | June 16, 2012 at 10:07 pm

        I stated this quite carefully .

        I was hoping you would know that Pakistan was not created till 1949.

        therefore Martin’s parents are Indian born & raised in a land that revers monkeys.

        So i am not sure whether it is a minus for them to see their son called a monkey by an American.

        You can say wat yu like but you don’t look very worldly.

As a British immigrant, myself, I have to say, Martin Bashir makes me cringe with embarrassment.
