I happened across The Rachel Maddow Show last night , by accident, and while I usually keep flipping through the channels I watched for a while. Ms. Maddow's show isn't slanted or biased, it is an outright campaign ad for Democratic candidates. I watched her campaign ad for Elizabeth Warren and couldn't stop laughing at the ridiculousness of her argument. Her angle last night was to paint Scott Brown as a racist for bringing up Ms Warrens lies concerning her ethnicity. She had a guest on who went off on a wild tangent and made even more ridiculous remarks. Maddow tried to make the case that Scott Brown is questioning Ms Warrens family heritage. She went on and on ad nauseum as only Rachel Maddow can do without ever addressing the real issue, which is, Elizabeth Warren lied on an employment application in order to gain favorable consideration. If Dr. Rachel Maddow was as smart as she and her fans claims she is why cant she get it. Or, or, is Rachel Maddow, as I suspect, a liar as well. To bolster her case Maddow, showed the now famous hidden camera clip with Romney remarking jokingly that he should do better with the latino vote having been born in Mexico. Ha, ha, rim-shot. He was joking but Maddow stated that Romney said hispanics have an easy life, and she said it twice, with a straight face. Sadly for her, Romney never said such a thing. Chalk up another lie for Maddow. Twice, she played Elizabeth Warren's political advertisement, I assume for free, which Ms Warren stated she was told she was an Indian and she she never questioned her parents. Ha, ha, rim-shot, oh but she wasn't joking. Earth to Dr Maddow, the issue is Elizabeth Warren's integrity or lack thereof. Would you defend Scott Brown had he marked a job application similarly? So I suppose Rachel Maddow's integrity is in question as well.
Now, after watching this cleverly designed campaign program for Elizabeth Warren and Obama, I have to ask. Do campaign finance laws cover this kind of activity? Should Obama claim MSNBC, and for sure Rachel Maddow as campaign contributors. Should Elizabeth Warren claim the two times her ad was aired during this segment as campaign contributions? From the few times I happen across MSNBC it seems to me to be a 24/7 Obama campaign commercial with the exception of Rachel Maddow's recent senate race campaigning. I know there will be those who will says "Fox" this or "Fox" that, but on Fox, you will see and hear opposing views and equal time. Not so on MSNBC. SHe also hadthe gaul to discuss later, Romney campaign contributor Sheldon Adleson.
I believe the country needs to reform or reegineer campaign finance laws, but not just by limitingcontributions by individuals or corporations, but also the media. In fact, I recommend that all television/radio political ads be limited to the 30 days before the election or eliminated in total. This will take the money out of the equation. Next, the media, has to abide by a new and improved fairness doctrine whereby campaigning for specific candidates, like Rachel Maddow did last night would be illegal.
