This week’s Mainstream Media Scream features MSNBC’s AM Joy show giving airtime to a Democratic, pro-Clinton consultant and pollster that called the Republican Party “pro-pedophilia,” “anti-children,” and ultimately a “domestic terror group.”
The trifecta of hate on the GOP came from Fernand Amandi who was on Saturday’s AM Joy reacting to supposed Republican resistance to extending a health insurance program for children.
“Is it any surprise that the party that is pro-pay-for-play, pro-Putin, and now with Roy Moore, pro-pedophilia, the fact that they’re anti-children, is that any surprise? I don’t think it is. And I think, Joy, this is emblematic — this CHIP [Children’s Health Insurance Program] scenario where you mentioned nine million children -- children -- without health insurance.
“I think if you take a step back, one has to ask themselves -- and I think the American people should ask themselves the broader question: What has the Republican party, in the last ten years, done to help the American people? What have they done? This is not a political party -- this is a domestic terror group. And I think what the American people should consider when they ask themselves that question -- with a party that has done nothing to help the American people -- is to vote them out and consider possibly afterwards locking them up, Joy.”
Media Research Center Vice President of Research Brent Baker explains our weekly pick: “MSNBC has outdone itself, allowing a guest, whom host Joy Reid did not challenge, to characterize the political party in power as a ‘terror group.’ That’s just plain revolting and one more piece of evidence MSNBC is more of a left-wing political operation than any kind of journalistic enterprise.”
