Maddow and MSNBC

I gave up on MSNBC a long time ago, because Maddow and the others are muzzled by the corporate management and can’t discuss at all certain things. The effective liberal voices that couldn’t be silenced this way are now long gone, like Olbermann, Schultz, Harris-Perry etc.

Plus she and some others like Hayes have a strong penchant for what Lakoff describes as relying on the assumptions of Enlightenment reason, that just by providing the ‘facts’ this will change public opinion. MSNBC management, being good Republicans educated in effective framing, knows their token mouthpieces are ineffective so gets to pretend they’re providing the ‘liberal’ side of things knowing full well it’s a smokescreen.
