Supercut of MSNBC's 2013 Lowlights
— Ace

As former MSNBC host Martin Bashir introduces the clip, MSNBC is "a place where we try every day to elevate political discourse."

One clip came in too late (I imagine) to make the Washington Free Beacon's supercut -- Joy Reid playing the Pro Wrestling Heel, claiming, absurdly, that Biblical passages forbidding the making of wooden totems plated with gold (that is, idols of false gods) actually forbid the dressing of Christmas trees, a German/pagan practice unknown at the time the Bible was written.

The left has this idea -- which I am trying to get out of their heads, but it's in their pretty firmly -- that they are Smart and so they should Say Clever Things.

But they are not Smart, and when they attempt to Say Clever Things, it's idiotic ahistorical low-level-blogger nonsense like this.

This is similar to Martin Bashir's outrageous pronouncements about the foul mistreatment of slaves. They're all borrowing from Keith Olberman's idiot schtick of quickly skimming a Wikipedia entry on a historical event and then twisting it to somehow connect to current controversies.

They think this makes them Sound Smart. In fact it exposes them as ignorant buffoons. They simply do not know what the hell they're talking about, and by attempting to put on airs as learned scholars, they only expose themselves as ludicrous Bluffers.

Scalzi's Law and the Olberman Imitators of MSNBC: ZBBMcFate reminds us of author John Scalzi's Law of attempted cleverness:

The failure mode of "clever" is "asshole."

That's my reading of the passage as well. Don't worship the tree or the symbols on it. Of course it could also be warning us obliquely against the amazingly dangerous tradition of putting lit candles on Christmas trees!

I remember being so upset when we were no longer able to find it in the stores in our area. Well the excitement quickly turned to complete disapointment when I took the first bite. It tasted nothing like before. Why did they have to change a good thing?!? If you are looking for the same cereal from your childhood, do not order this product.

Of course, she claims to be a Christian conservative (she forgot to add "concerned"), didn't want girls, and is boyish herself. Uhuh.

(Her son who supposedly is a girl inside used to push his pee-pee down and asked if all girls have a pee-pee that needs to be cut off. Meanwhile, according to her, the boy hasn't seen undressed women and so doesn't know about genitals.) Of course, she claims to be a Christian conservative (she forgot to add "concerned"), didn't want girls, and is boyish herself. Uhuh.

98 Leftists are really unpleasant beings, aren't they? Yes, which is one reason lefty talk radio does not work. In order to advocate a larger government role, you need a problem. In order to have a problem, you have to take a large collection of unfortunate events and complain about them....constantly. And who the hell wants to spend an hour, or two or three, listening to someone complain? Hence, lefty talk radio doesn't work because after a while, it is like dealing with your in-laws without the occasional side benefit of having sex with your spouse. Unless pleasuring yourself to Ed Schultz is your idea of a good time on a Saturday night.

I think Olberman's corollary to Scalzi's Law is:

 

Both the failure and success modes of "asshole" are "asshole".

 

I think that might also work as a motto for MSNBC.

163 Al Jazeera America has had a lot of trouble attracting viewers; since MSNBC already occupies the top spot in propaganda, breaking in on the competition is tough.
 
They need to do something novel, something cutting edge, like disemboweling a few conservatives live on air. That would force MSNBC to one-up them somehow. Maybe live lobotomizing of a few of their viewers?
 
Nah, no one would be able to tell the difference.

180 I have never seen MSNBC. Literally not for one second, ever. I don't subscribe to cable, first of all. And even with "regular" TV, I hardly ever watch; and when I do watch, it's never the news. So I have little to say about MSNBC. However, I have a suspicion that it's an intentional "clown show," the exact inverse of Honey Boob-Boo and related shows: Networks put on cornpone "reality shows" that purport to be documentarian but in actuality are targeted toward an "urbane' audience so that they can laugh at ignorant rubes and rednecks. I suspect that NBC puts on a "news channel" that purports to have liberal-slanted reportage, but in actuality is targeted toward conservatives so that they can laugh at the buffoonish antics of Obama-worshipping "stereotypical" liberal hypocrite. In other words, most of MSNBC's audience are "hate watching" the network, not watching it to get informed.

186 In other words, most of MSNBC's audience are "hate watching" the network, not watching it to get informed. This is true, but it also applied to Air America. It was supposed to provide "balance" to conservative talk radio. It went bust. That doesn't mean they meant it to go bust. It just means that it didn't work, because people don't follow that thought process. But MSDNC thinks they can do it better.

It also backfired earlier with "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo," which was explicitly marketed to liberals as a "laugh at the obese hicks" show, but which became popular among...obese hicks! Ooops.

I do know some lefties who are big fans of MSNBC but they tend to be the most brain-dead and certainly the least educated. Moonbats with serious pretensions to sophistication generally find MSNBC embarrassing. In any case, and whatever their target audience, it surely is mostly schtick.
