MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Condemns CNN for Airing Tea Party Response

MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow called out CNN for airing the Tea Party response to the State of the Union address by Michele Bachman last night:

“A national news network decided that they would give Michele Bachmann a job that her own party never did.”

Maddow asked Fmr. RNC Communications Dir. Doug Heye: “Isn’t it a little bit weird though to have two responses run on a national news network as if they were equivalent?”

This segment sent new CNN hire Piers Morgan to the Twittersphere to pronounce his disapproval:

Ms Maddow doesn’t think it’s ‘news’ when 2 different factions of Rep Party make post-SOTU speeches? http://huff.to/igZu91 #SERIOUSLY?

Sorry, but just nonsense for @maddow to say @cnn shouldn’t have run Tea Party speech. Rep split is proper news, may decide next election.

Final point re @maddow fury over CNN airing Tea Party speech – just weird hearing her speak like a @foxnews anchor #triangulator
