    He sits there and pontificates about those dastardly, evil, insincere. no-morals Conservatives, while he's a two-bit plagerer.

    Mike Barnicle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In 1998, Barnicle resigned from the Boston Globe amid allegations of fabrication and plagiarism. Barnicle's October 8, 1995, column recounted the story of two sets of parents with cancer-stricken children. When one of the boys, a black child, died, the parents of the other boy, a white child who had begun to recover, sent the dead child's parents a check for $10,000. When the Globe could not locate the people who had not been publicly identified, Barnicle insisted nonetheless that the story was true. He said he did not obtain the story from the parents but from a nurse, whom he declined to identify. Mrs. Patricia Shairs later contacted the Globe to indicate that the story Barnicle wrote was about her family, although she said some of the facts were incorrect.

    The second column in question contained more than 80 lines of humorous observations dated August 2, 1998, about a third of which plagiarized observations from the 1997 book Brain Droppings by George Carlin Although Barnicle said he had never read the book, the editor of the Globe issued a temporary suspension. WCVB-TV then aired a video clip of Barnicle recommending the book to viewers for upcoming summer reading, saying it had a "yuk on every page." Globe editor called for his resignation but this was rescinded under fire from readers, advertisers and a group of media personalities. Instead the suspension period doubled.

    MSNBC is just pathetic, and makes FOX news look mainstream.
    Just one leftist hack after another, with no objectivity whatsoever.
    It really is sad to see an American icon, NBC, lose so much credibility.

    Don't even get me started on Mika and her commie father, Zbigniew Brzezinski. They actually go to this loon for foreign affairs commnentary,

    3/4 of their panelists look like they aren't old enough to shave but they are going to lecture older, wiser people on every issue, every day.

    Barnicle tried several times in the last week to make an issue of the war in Afghanistan. Today Mika talked at length wanting to know why this is not an issue with the 'candidates.' Someone needs to tell the twit that the candidates have no power or authority over the war. It is the President that has the power to withdraw or surrender. Obama is having too much fun with his drones killing taliban leaders and their families and any other civilians in the area. When is the War Crimes tribunal going to indict Obama?

    Mikas Dad was Jimmy Carters adviser when they encouraged the overthrow of the Shah. How did that work out for you lefties?

    Mika wouldn't recognize a brain cell if it hit her in the head. All she does is sit there and make faces and roll her eyes.

    It didn't work out well, but the facts at the time warranted Carter's support for the Shah's overthrow. The revolution was a populist one, much as Castro's which was bungled by IKE and lead to Castro forging an alliance with the Soviet Union.

    .

    My favorite TV moment of the week (so far) happened a couple of days ago when one of the MSNBC lefties asked Ezra Klein what he thought of some topic. With a straight face he begged off, saying something like, "well, I have to stay neutral, I'm a journalist."

    Ezra freakin' Klein said that, and of course, the MSNBC lefty moved on.

    your judgment as to brain cells probably isn't very reliable.

    how many obama-deranged threads does this make now for you?

    if only you were as interesting as you think you are.

    If only you... weren't an asshole and a coward. I've exposed you every time and you have yet to respond. All you do is troll in and make a dumb ass remark or attack what someone says. You wouldn't know proof if a photographer handed you a photo marked PROOF across it.


    We all see how you operate. You're a dopey asshole who stirs shit and then comes back hours later hoping you can wise crack another poster without them noticing it.

    In three letters you're a POS!
