Phil Griffin

In a year end memo to employees, Phil Griffin notes:

  • It’s no secret that 2014 was a difficult year for the entire cable news industry and especially for msnbc. Technology is continuing to drive unprecedented changes across the media landscape – and we all should be taking a hard, honest look at how we need to evolve along with it.

Right Wing Watch's Brian Tashman Doesn't Understand Nuance, By lines, or Ted Nugent

Based on his latest article for Right Wing Watch, the self proclaimed watchdog of all things not left.

Tashman posted an article titled "Ted Nugent Under False Impression That Obama Appointed Al Sharpton 'Race Czar'" apparently to make it appear that Nugent doesn't know what he is writing about.. Tashman was referring to an article posted on the WND web site titles "I'm done laughing at Obama's insanity."

In some comments directed mainly at Al Sharpton, Nugent wrote

  •   "Are you kidding me? This guy as some kind of race relations czar? Seriously? 
Nugent is not saying Sharpton was appointed as a race czar. He was simply pointing out that it appeared he was being used as one. Which, BTW, is true. The Obama administration is using Sharpton as though he were some sort of race relation czar.

The by-line to the WND article says:

  • Exclusive: Ted Nugent hits the roof over tapping of race czar Al 'not so' Sharpton
Obviously the by-line was added by WND editors since there would be no reason for Nugent to add such a by line and speak about himself in the third person.

Tashman writes

  • Well, apparently you can make this stuff up, since “the president’s recent appointment” of Sharpton to be “some kind of race relations czar” never actually happened outside of Nugent’s fevered imagination and a handful of right-wing message boards. 
So what it makes it stranger is that Tashman even highlights the exact words ("some kind of race relations czar") but he still misses the nuance. The message Tashman got was apparently never happened outside of Tashman's fevered imagination and a handful of left-wing boards. Go figure.

UPDATE: I noticed raw Story's Travis Gettys followed Tashman's lead. As i stated "a handful of left-wing boards" are following the imaginative story. "Ted Nugent furious about made-up claim that Obama named Al Sharpton ‘race czar’"
