NBC News is no longer pretending to have a cable news company.  They decided to let their 2010 election coverage be ran by all lefties with absolutely no conservatives or journalists at the front desk.  “The place for politics” is no longer “the place for journalism” (if it ever was).  Lawrence O’Donnell, Rachel Maddow, Eugene Robinson, Keith Olbermann, and Chris Matthews were the only ones allowed at the desk and spewed loony Left vitriol all night long out of anger that the American people were rejecting the Obama agenda.  The coverage hit its low point (and that is low) when Chris Matthews ruthlessly attacked Michele Bachmann.

Matthews: Are you hypnotized tonight?  Has someone hypnotized you?…Has someone put you in a trance tonight?

Bachmann: I think the American people are the ones that are finally speaking tonight – we are coming out of our trance, really we are coming out of our nightmare. I think people are thrilled tonight.  I imagine that thrill is not so tingling on your leg anymore.

Matthews went on to mock Bachmann more before defending himself again and again about getting a tingle up his leg over Obama.  Matthews said Bachmann was “moronically” staring at the camera when answering questions.  Obviously Matthews takes comments about himself personally, but he has no problem treating a congresswoman like garbage.  (By the way, will feminists question if Matthews would have treated a male congressman like this?)  I couldn’t help but think if the late, great Tim Russert would have stood for such despicable behavior.

Matthews rudeness wasn’t the only shamefulness of the night over at MSNBC.  Olbermann would later mock the new Speaker of the House John Boehner for his heartfelt tears about his victory.  But Matthews treatment of Bachmann was so bad that even Olbermann tried to cut him off.  Minutes later O’Donnell would tell Chris on air that Rep. Bachmann was merely staying on message and not in a trance.  He told Matthews that every politician from both parties does that all the time.  That shut up Matthews about Bachmann for at least a few minutes.

I know so-called liberals like to say Fox News isn’t journalism, but Fox had two non-biased journalists host their show and occasionally went to debate panels that were balanced with both ends of the political spectrum.  MSNBC and Chris Matthews ought to be ashamed of themselves for their coverage and they owe Michele Bachmann a sincere apology.
