I find that "Democracy Now" is a higher quality "progressive leaning" media source than is "MSNBC".
The difference is between "The Machine Progressive" (MSNBC) and "The Unattached Progressive" (Democracy Now). I have little doubt that Amy Goodman and crew actually believe what they say - regardless of my ideological differences with them. They are far more likely to call out the violations of "Progressivism" by a Progressive elected official than would MSNBC or the majority of the "LampBlacked Yellow Journalists" (The Black Progressive Media).
It is well understood that many Black Progressive Fundamentalists long for the day that "Fox News" collapses OR when many of its personalities take the "Perp Walk".
What people can't appreciate is that "MSNBC" operates WITHIN the "Black Community Racial Consciousness Nucleus". Fox News doesn't stand a chance to have such proximate access to the Black Community's "jugular vein".
- The annual Black (Progressive) Forum, hosted by Tavis Smiley on C-SPAN each year was subsumed by "The Black (Progressive) Agenda For A Stronger America" - hosted by Ed Schultz on MSNBC - the point in time when "The Black Struggle" stopped all pretenses of what it claimed to be - and instead we saw the creation of the "Post Racial Progressive Fundamentalist Coalition Against The Right Wing"
- "The Grio.com" - originally created as the "Black Auxiliary" to MSNBC was NOT created to REPORT UPON "The Black Community" - muckraking for CHANGE WITHIN. It is ONLY created to feed the present sentiments of THE BLACK PROGRESSIVE. Period.
- You could not list ONE ISSUE "Within The Black Community" in which this bad of "Recruited/Employed/Paid Black Journalists' STOOD IN OPPOSITION TO the "Prevailing Sentiment Within The Black Community" for the purposes of producing ORGANIC CHANGE. Their job is to SYNERGIZE the contents of the "Black Community Conscious Attention Filibuster"
- The NAACP awarded MSNBC's Rachel Maddow an award from its Detroit Chapter. As we saw last week after the Emergency Manager was assigned to the city - Rachel Maddow - sounding suspiciously like a "European protesters" demanded that someone show her where "The Emergency Manager" has fixed any city in Michigan. (Austerity) She could not bring herself to ask the question: "Did the Progressive Fundamentalism that has dominated the city government for the past 40 years sufficiently maintain the operating state of Detroit and other cities that it stood alone"? With the NAACP affirming her position in which she DID NOT inspect the HARM TO "THE LEAST OF THESE" that the establishment power of Detroit have exerted - the NAACP award should be equated to the "Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil" award.
