It appears that MSNBC is covering its tracks regarding their 2008 pro wall street bailout slant.

In my opinion, MSNBC is possibly the fulcrum point for the present day economic duress that most americans find themselves in. Sometime in late 2007 or very early 2008, MSNBC decided that Barack Obama should be the democratic nominee, even though Hillary Clinton still was slightly more popular with the democratic voting base.

It's possible that if MSNBC had not taken sides, Hillary Clinton's popular vote lead would have been more substantial. Based on her campaign speeches AND her one on one meetings with main street, I am convinced that Hillary Clinton would have focused on the home foreclosure issue in a responsible and mature manner. I believe that Hillary Clinton would have garnered support across both political parties while also actually helping distressed american homeowners. This in turn would have stabilized the ENTIRE economy.

As president, Hillary Clinton would have actually helped main street, and inevitably, wall street would have not looked so good. Could this be the reason that George Soros dropped his support for Hillary Clinton, and went with Barack Obama instead?

Once Soros gave Obama his support, others began militantly supporting Barack Obama, including, Huffington Post, MSNBC, Keith Olbermann and the leg tingler Chris Matthews, Michael Moore, Move on dot org, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Maria Shriver, Oprah Winfrey and many many more. There was even a contingent of 400 bloggers who rabidly supported Barack Obama in their oped pieces.  All of this happened before millions upon millions of democratic voters had a chance to vote for either democratic candidate.

Having helped Barack Obama win the democratic nomination, MSNBC decided to go the extra step. I am not 100% sure of this but I believe it was Contessa Brewer of MSNBC that handled crucial portions of the live coverage of the first wall street bailout vote in congress. I recall Contessa Brewer almost having a panicked look on her face as she reported on the first bailout defeat for the wall street bailout bill. 

I can't find Contessa Brewer's panicked face nor any of the MSNBC coverage of the first 2008 wall street bailout vote on youtube or anywhere else. In my opinion MSNBC reported with a very noticeable slant that was pro wall street bailout vote. 

However, I did find some after the fact youtube clips where MSNBC anchors are complaining about bits of pork mixed in with the wall street bailout package. This is complete revisionist history in my opinion by MSNBC and the occupy movement should know about since nowadays MSNBC, Keith Olbermann, Huffington Post, Michael Moore and Move on dot ort are all cheering on the Occupy Movement.

If you managed to record any of the first or second MSNBC 2008 wall street bailout coverage vote, you probably are not allowed to post it online because of copyright infringement, and MSNBC appears to not want to keep alive one of their darkest moments, their apparently panicked view that the wall street bailout plan MUST go through.

The MSNBN behavior in 2008 is just another justification for the Occupy Movement, the people and news entities that are most supportive now, were among the dishonest, duplicitous 2008 group that forced their will over the will of the voting public before the voting public had a chance to vote in the democratic race.


  1. I don't think OWS should really endorse *any* political candidate or get at all involved in the factionalism of the political elites. Electoral politics has become theatre, just bread and circuses, and I don't think any of them are particularly genuine. It seems especially futile to endorse a candidate that's essentially spilt milk, like Kerry or Clinton. The first part of your post just seems like a What If.

    The latter part of your post re MSNBC covering their tracks over bailout support is, however, relevant to my mind. We need to hold the media accountable, make them live up to basic standards of personal responsibility that we try to teach our children and which they are apparently unfamiliar with.

  2. Anonymous, I appreciate the feedback and I agree with you entirely. I was completely neutral in the 2008 democratic nomination process up until early February 2008.

    An accidental overdose of Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews woke me up to the unprecedented level of favoritism MSNBC was showing Obama even before millions of democrats had voted, which woke me up.

    I guess that was my occupy moment.

    It saddens me that MSNBC and all the 2008 pundits are still around and not taking any responsibility for their lack of transparency in 2008 and their desire to make sure one democratic candidate won over another.

    It galls me that MSNBC had a bigger hand in who the democrats selected for their presidential candidate than Fox News did regarding who the republicans picked as their presidential candidate, otherwise, a republican candidate with 1% of the popular vote around this time in 2007 (John McCain), would not have eventually won the 2008 republican nomination.
