Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, January 25, 2014

If a news channel interrupts a member of Congress mid-sentence, one might assume that the breaking news would be of considerable urgency. But MSNBC interrupted former Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) as she discussed the NSA for the breaking news that charges were being read in Justin Bieber's DUI drag racing incident. "Congresswoman, let me interrupt you just for a moment, we have some breaking news out of Miami," Andrea Mitchell began.

Actually since it was Jane Harman whom I truly question as to her USA loyalty and citizenship, and it was Andrea Mitchell (bankster Greenspan's wife) who made the call on the media priority, made Bieber as #1...it is all so fitting.

Had it been Bernie Sanders whom I totally respect I'd be pxssed.

Well, duh. Is there anything more important in the world than the antics of a spoiled snot-nosed teenager? I mean other than Paris Hilton, of course?

There is no hope for this planet.

Hey, that's Capitalism and the Free Market for you. Always leading the cultural race to the bottom.

I bet all five people that were tuned in to MSNBC were upset. Is it any wonder nobody watches?

It would have been the segment producer at the very least, unless the break-in had been pre-arranged, knowing it was about to happen.

Nonetheless, it was about as amateur a call as I've seen. Just ridiculous.

You expected more from MSNBC? With all the incompetent "reporters" and I use the term very loosely, why would anyone expect the people backing them up to be professional? MSNBC always has been a bad joke in the news business.

Expected more than breaking in to cover Bieber? Why, yes, GT, yes I did.
If you think otherwise, then why is this a story?

If I was a reporter who had to interrupt serious thing for tabloid slop I'd be higher than a kite 24/7.

And you wonder why/how Al Jazeera can get a foothold in the market? They don't do stupid crap like this.

Bieber's a twit for sure but congress is not totally blameless for their declining relevance..

Not as much as GOP TV is.

Former Rep. Jane Harman or Justin Bieber.......... That would be a tough decision to make allright. Both about the same level.

Why not interrupt her, after it's only a dem so what could she possibly have to say worth listening to?

Comparing the importance of the things that congress says vs. some stupid millionaire kid getting thrown in the pokey is an insult... to the kid.
