    If MSNBC was looking to officially become the cable channel of the far left, it may have finally succeeded Wednesday night with the airing of Chris Matthews' documentary "The Rise of The New Right."

    MSNBC -- the network whose hosts routinely mock Tea Party activists as "Tea Baggers" -- aggressively promoted the documentary, with Matthews appearing on "Morning Joe" and "The Daily Rundown" Wednesday morning, as well as throughout the day.
    Matthews clearly believes, as "Hardball's" website says, "the new right is an emerging fact of life in 21st century." As such, it was time to launch a thorough analysis into this nascent phenomenon and (as MSNBC's documentary website says) "investigate in-depth some of the most important stories of our time." Sadly, though, Matthews' hour-long documentary effort left us with more questions than answers.

    To be sure, the program came equipped with the perfunctory ominous music (meant to let you know when to be scared) and interviews ranging from respected former Majority Leader (and now president of Freedomworks) Dick Armey to Orly Taitz, the "unofficial leader of the Birthers," who recently lost a GOP primary in California by a landslide.

    What would be the point of responding, forcefully or otherwise, to an obviously far left biased source, which extremely few outside the wackaloon fringe take seriously?

    I like that you drew attention here, but it wouldn't let me give a rep.

    Pmsnbc has become nothing but PURE bullshit PROPAGANDA for the left wing and the Democrat-Progressive party.

    Who do you think is PAYING their salaries?
    it sure isn't from advertisers, hardly anyone watches them.

    think about it.?

    Not surprisingly the far right fringers didn't watch; the willfully ignorant are so sure they know 'The Truth' they have no need (or fear?) examing their beliefs. They are anti-science, filled with faith and as true believers unworthy of engagement in debate.
    And as usual they characterize anything not far right crazy as far left - in their tiny little self righteous heads fringers see the world as white and black. White is them, and black is everyone else. Ideas, opinions and even facts which confront their Weltsicht (view of the world) are ignored, demeaned, and characterized as propaganda from "the far left".
    The fact is the horrors of the 20th Century came from the fringe, and the fringe has a left and a right edge; Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and the Spanish Civil War all resulted in mass murder justified by ideology; the language and symbols used by Palin, Bachmann and others interviewed in the special on the new right leave little to the imagination - it is a movement which has been around for over half a century, and nothing good ever comes from those who pander to the emotions with hate and fear.

    So how did you like the last six months of the Glenn Beck Show?

    Did you take notes?

    Or should I merely change the fifth word and repeat your post?
