    MSNBC Anchors Lash Out at Cheney; Wonder If He’s of a ‘Rational, Healthy Mind'

    By Scott Whitlock (Bio | Archive)
    October 22, 2009 - 17:44 ET

    MSNBC anchors David Shuster and Tamron Hall on Thursday lashed out at a speech Dick Cheney gave that was critical of Barack Obama, speculating on whether the Vice President is of a "rational, healthy mind." Attempting to attack the Bush administration’s handling of Afghanistan for eight years, News Live co-host Tamron Hall dismissed, "Is it selective amnesia?"

    Shuster and Hall seemed particularly upset over Cheney’s speech on October 21 where the Vice President accused Obama of "dithering" on an Afghanistan strategy and also being "afraid" of making a decision. Talking to Newsweek reporter Michael Isikoff, Hall bristled, "As a woman, of course, I read in all kinds of machismo with this language, you are afraid to come out with a decision, almost taunting there."

    The liberal Shuster could barely contain himself. Commenting on Cheney’s frail physical condition, he taunted, "What do you think he is after here, assuming that he is of some sort of rational, healthy mind?"

    It's one thing for a commentator to lash out with their opinions, but quite another for an anchor of a supposed news program to do so. So much for MSNBC's journalistic "ethics."

    How is citing a the Media Research Center any different from Fred Flash pasting Media Matters articles?
    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”

      First, I actually posted a point in regards to the quote. That at least allows it to be open to discussion.

      Second, you almost hit on the major point I'm trying to make. Think a little harder and see where it takes you.....

          SRT I've actually got a bit of respect for you as you are pretty reasonable. I dod understand what you are driving at for sure and have to also agree on the whole inability to decipher between pundits and journalists deal but that goes both ways. Recently though it seems like everyone is just posting stories from various think tanks or watchdog groups that align with their preexisting views. Usually you have something original to say and I just found this thread to be a deviation from that norm.

            This is yet another example of why the mainstream media is becoming less and less mainstream each and every day.
