How Not to Engage in Civil Discourse by MSNBC

• Americans for Prosperity HT Liberty Pulse
 

On Sean Hannity's show Wednesday night, we had a civil yet spirited discussion on issues of the day.  Juan Williams, a Fox News contributor and PBS commentator (with whom I often disagree) made his points concisely and focused on genuine issues.  Hannity, as moderator, led the discussion in a manner befitting a leading national media figure.  CLICK HERE

The next evening, Rachel Maddow's show was completely different.  During a 10-minute segment with me, she flatly refused to discuss even for a moment the health care issue, which was supposed to be the topic. 

Instead, she spent her time in a screeching, angry, at times irrational attack on Americans for Prosperity saying that our activists are not real, that they are part of a big corporate front, etc.  Her attacks on us echoed Speaker Pelosi calling freedom fighters "un-American" for their grassroots involvement and Sen. Harry Reid calling grassroots activists "evil-mongers" and others on the Left saying we incite "mob violence."

Well I watched the Maddow interview. First off, if anyone is complaining about aggressive and impolite interviewing techniques then WHAT THE H*LL ARE THEY DOING ON FOXNEWS?

Sorry but journalism and the public discourse was utterly trampled by Hannity, O'Reilly and Limbaugh. The tone here is utterly tame compared to O'Reilly's "shut up, just shut up".

And BTW, AFP IS ASTROTURF THROUGH AND THROUGH. SAME G.O.P. APPARATCHICKS IN BIG-MONEY PARTISAN WARFARE.

Sorry AFP but FAIL, FAIL, FAIL, FAIL, FAIL.

FAIL. Sorry but here's Hannity who insisted the whole nation get behind "our great commander in chief GWB" attacking Obama up and down.

Conservatives, do you really think we get away scott-free for embracing these war-hawk monsters who accused all dissenters of being unpatriotic?

We are in bed with vipers. We are getting bit.
