Already Forgotten?

People are freaking out because some CNBC tool admitted that CNBC told her to stop with the Obama bashing.

Ummmmmm, that’s so old Ace thinks it’s old. From April, 2009

It was an intensive, three-hour dinner at 30 Rock which Zucker himself was behind, a source familiar with the powwow told us. “There was a long discussion about whether CNBC has become too conservative and is beating up on Obama too much. There’s great concern that CNBC is now the anti-Obama network. The whole meeting was really kind of creepy.

One topic under the microscope, our insider said, was on-air CNBC editor Rick Santelli’s rant two months ago about staging a ‘Chicago Tea Party’ to protest the president’s bailout programs — an idea that spawned tax protest tea parties in other big cities, infuriating theWhite House. Oddly, Santelli was not at the meeting, while Jim Cramer was, noted our source, who added that no edict was ultimately handed down by the network chieftains.


Jebus, did everything that happened before today not happen?

    You and Ace are both right, but the anti-MFMers (of which I am, alas, still one) can’t get enough of these kinds of stories because Democratic operatives with bylines. Our rational brains know full well that anyone that’s still drinking the Kool-aid is a willing participant in their own deception but emotionally, we still fall for the reasonable-sounding notion that stories like this will help those types “wake up” and realize that they’re marks, probably because that’s the way it worked for us once upon a time. The demographics say that anyone still getting their information from MFM sources are probably too set in their ways to change but if we’re fortunate the Internets will help the Millenials understand that they’re getting what they voted for good and hard.
