Trump and the GOP already spent the money, genius. The debt ceiling is about paying for the trillions in debt they already racked up…

The media doesn't inform, it engages in infotainment. The rise of 24 hour cable news really started this and the rise of social media has allowed this to spread like wildfire.

Dude just stop. Palmer is super left as is msnbc. Attacking msnbc for being right is like attacking fox for being left. 

 

The host might be left leaning but the network isn't.

 

They supported the Iraq war like crazy and ran Donohue off for speaking out against it

I’d say the media landscape changed after 9/11. They all went pretty far to the right as to avoid appearing “unpatriotic”. This was because corporate profit is what matters.

 

And after that, MSNBC has skewed more to the left as objections to the invasion of Iraq rose. Mostly that meant it was simply to the left of being Bush's mouthpiece, which is what attacks of being “liberal media” is all about.
 

Since then they moved to the left of center because corporate knew that Fox had staked out the right and CNN dominated the middle. They just aren’t so far off center that they are reporting misinformation and propaganda like Fox and others.
