Ask MSNBC What Is Wrong with National News

FULL DISCLOSURE: This is not a political diatribe about the foot-in-mouth disease most national news reporters seem to have when it comes to a zeal to become a “personality” instead of doing their effin’ job as a “reporter.”

FULLER DISCLOSURE: When you see the video, you will laugh out loud, so please abstain from drinking liquid for the next three minutes.

Now then: How are you today? Well? That’s grand, really.

Many people across our proud nation are reeling with economic problems, turmoil from being unemployed (or underemployed), domestic drama or even trying to get a hand-up from the “man.” And since none of us can figure these serious times in which we are battling, we received the golden envelope yesterday. That’s right — America has the answer as to what is wrong with our priorities, and we have MSNBC to thank for this!

How? Well, ask serious newswoman Andrea Mitchell. She is in the middle of a stern-faced interview with former Congresswoman Jane Harman (D – Calif.) who is on a fairly intelligible rant about the NSA and how they may need to stop collecting phone records.

And then…BREAKING NEWS…and I just accidentally swallowed that Liquid Plumber I was gargling. Ah, well.
