Is Katie Bradford coaching MSNBC anchors or are all media entitled like her?

Remember at the last election when the media went all in on Dirty Politics and then couldn’t believe the voting public ignored them.

She famously said on camera near the end of the 2014 election campaign that “No matter what we do, no matter what we say, the polls still favour National.”

Now it appears MSNBC has been infected with the same arrogance and entitlement.

Sometimes the mainstream media slips and tells the truth. MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski did just that on Wednesday, but we are certain she didn’t mean for this little nugget to slip out.

Sitting next to Joe Scarborough on Morning Joe, Brzezinski was in full complaint mode over President Trump having the audacity to think he gets to control what people think when that’s “our job,” she said:

“He is trying to undermine the media and trying to make up his own facts. And it could be that while unemployment and the economy worsens, he could have undermined the messaging so much that he can actually control exactly what people think.

“And that, that is our job.”  

No one on the panel challenged and the segment continued.

Later, the MSNBC anchor tried to back pedal on Twitter, saying, “Today I said it’s the media’s job to keep President Trump from making up his own facts, NOT that it’s our job to control what people think.”

Then she cried fake news: “Of course, that is obvious from the transcript but some people want to make up their own facts. SAD!”

“I believe that you believe that,” someone responded.

Brzezinski is just mad that her subconscious thought was louder than today’s script.

Mika Brzezinski needs to understand the Whaleoil first rule of politics, explaining is losing.

Katie Bradford tried to explain her balls-up away as well. It is little wonder that no one trusts the media when they are so blatantly biased in their reporting and have clear agendas. Their words give them away, their deeds more so.

They might work it out one day, but I don’t think it will be anytime soon.
