‘BENGHAZI BE KIDDING ME’: ‘Ronan Farrow Daily’ boards Benghazi ‘humor’ train [pic]

http://twitter.com/#!/bennyjohnson/status/464814378525945856

What were the brutal murders of four Americans in Benghazi if not an opportunity for the media to showcase their utter tactlessness? Today, MSNBC took a page from the comedy stylebook of Sally Kohn and The Daily Beast with this pathetic, tasteless attempt at “humor”:

Talk about lame.

He should care. It’s not even a good pun!

Fair enough. Though Farrow’s well-deserved reputation as a crappy journalist made it all too easy to assume this was just another example of his crappy journalism. And this doesn’t endear him to us:

MSNBC says it’s not canceling show no one knew Ronan Farrow still had

http://twitter.com/#!/dthurston/status/521785440131510272

If Twitter could yawn, that would have been its response Monday afternoon when both Mediaite and Politico suggested that Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC offering, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” might be on the chopping block. However, MSNBC spokesperson Danielle Lynn quickly said in an email that the report is “not true,” perhaps unaware that Farrow, 26, draws just 50,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demographic.

Now Ronan Farrow might get the boot from #MSNBC for low ratings? At this point, maybe best to go with 24/7 catheter infomercials.

— Richard W. (@ilovaussiesheps) October 13, 2014

Something to ponder while we all wait on pins and needles for confirmation:

@joshtpm @TPM If MSNBC broadcasts a show and no one around is watching it, does it make a sound?

Ronan Farrow exposes Megyn Kelly’s ‘casual bigotry’

We agree with Ronan Farrow here “that moment” is worth a hard second look. Which moment from Thursday’s GOP debate are we talking about, exactly? To many, it was the moment when moderator Megyn Kelly revealed her bigotry against Muslims by suggesting that the neighbors of the San Bernardino terrorists should have called the police because they saw Muslims having a lot of packages delivered.

Farrow posted a clip as proof of Kelly’s “casual bigotry.”

That is an awfully short clip if you’re looking to prove someone is racist. Is it possible that it was taken out of context? Kelly was having an exchange with Gov. Chris Christie about profiling, which he opposes, and how he squares that with something like the San Bernardino mass shooting.

When Christie asserted that neighbors of the killers knewthat “these folks had weapons, they knew that they were talking about trying to take our country and attack it,” Kelly corrected him: “Neighbors said they saw men going in and out of the garage. They saw packages being delivered. They saw Muslims and they did not think that was enough to call the cops. Do you?”

In other words, Kelly denied that anyone knew the couple had weapons or plans for a terrorist attack; all they knew was that the Muslim couplehad a lot of packages delivered to their house, and that was no reason to call the police. Did Christie think it was?

Ronan Farrow heard an out-of-context, 12-second Vine clip, he hearda Fox News hostsay “Muslim,” and he calledMegyn Kelly a “casual bigot.” Would you?

MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow says Thanksgiving is really all about the genocide

Way to show that Thanksgiving spirit, Ronan!

Maybe he should invite Cher to co-host is forthcoming MSNBC show.

You really might not want to know. But since we are givers, we’ll share the oh-so-disturbing Twitter conversation with you.

It started with this:

Cripes! That photo is disturbing enough on its own. But it got worse.

Way worse.

Way, way worse.

Stop it. Please. For the love of everything ever.

Heh.

Um.

Seriously. Unfortunately, what has been seen cannot be unseen. Thanks bunches, MSNBC creepsters.
