I know there’s very little reason to have much hope for the mainstream media, but when villagers begin calling out Republicans to their faces on policy, it makes me a little more optimistic.

    Soledad O’ Brien now joins Bob Costas in the right wing doghouse, a great place to be.

    • She’s been on the shitlist ever since the “Obama hugged a guy . . . a BLACK guy” flap flop this summer.

      Spoiler: The hyperlink is Breitbart.com. Spoiler 2: It’s stupid.

      Better than nothing, but I knew before I clicked the link it was gonna be O’Brien. When someone else on CNN does it, it’ll be progress.

      • JKTHs

        If David Gergen does it, all who watch will spontaneously combust

      • greylocks

        Yeah, she’s been in their faces before. Not a trend here.

        But haven’t they decided to replace her with the pretty fascist (forget her name)?

  • McKingford

    I don’t consider O’Brien part of the villagers. She was pretty effective and consistent at calling out right wing bullshit throughout the election.

  • N. Eugene

    Yeah I think at this point it’s fairly easy for Republicans to cast O’Brien as biased, since she consistently calls them out on their bullshit :(

    • DrDick

      It is a major violation of Villager rules to point out the actual facts regarding Republican policy proposals.

    Yes, that whopping $16 a month, total, for the two of us, that my Mother and I get in SNAP benefits is a real budget buster, Senator Secession, isn’t it?

    What’s that $16 stopping us from getting, another washer on some F-### motherfeckin’ boondoggle Super Jet? A lugnut on an aircraft carrier?

    Senator Secession, how about you doing something to improve the economy so that I can find a job, after over 2 1/2 years of looking for one?

    I don’t want a $16 monthly hand-out. I want a feckin’ job – preferrably one that pays about that same amount an hour. You know, something approaching a somewhat liveable wage?

    And I’m not complaining about only getting $16, I’m thankful – that’s milk and eggs for a good part of the month.

    Too bad Senator Secession didn’t sign up to live on SNAP benefits for a month. Maybe hunger might sharpen his mind.

    Soledad O’Brien commits an act of journalism. FIRE HER!!!

    An objective journalist would have given equal time to the idea that it would be better for some people to starve.

    • Karate Bearfighter

      You laugh, but the Objectivist Society at my undergrad college once sponsored a debate on whether it was immoral to provide food aid to famine victims.

      • BigHank53

        I’d go to that debate, but only if the Objectivists were coated in barbecue sauce and debating a pack of hyenas.

        • Anonymous

          Hyena chow is really the only use for Objectivists.

          • Julian

            I can’t believe you people would considering subjecting a hyena to that

    Sadly it’s not even a particularly amazing example of journalism — it rises to just about the same level as a friendly John Stewart interview of, say, John McCain.

  • Bitter Scribe

    “Hurry up with that proposal to cut food stamps! I’m late for my meeting about how to counter the image of Republicans as heartless bastards!”

  • cpinva

    in his “defense”, sen. sessions truly represents those who elected him. they are convinced that anyone, other than them, getting any assistance from the guvmint, makes the baby jesus cry.

    • Joe

      The Sessions proposal exempts those in his state?

    I don’t have a TV, but I have read that Ashleigh Banfield is now on CNN. Years ago, she was excellent on MSNBC but was too honest and was exiled to CourtTV or something like that.
