Accuracy in Media

Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski criticized Democratic National Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) for trying to control the election and protect Hillary Clinton by limiting the number of Democratic debates, which Mika says has totally backfired on her:

The DNC trying to control the election by making less debates? Good on ya. You screwed yourself.

Wasserman Schlutz has staunchly defended her decision to limit the number of debates despite calls from Democrats—including DNC vice-chairwoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI)—for more face-offs between the candidates.

The Democratic debate schedule has been mocked for not just the small number of them—six—but also for scheduling the majority of them on weekends when the audience was guaranteed to be far lower than if they had been on weeknights. It has been an obvious effort to protect frontrunner Hillary Clinton.

But as Brzezinski pointed out, the DNC screwed themselves, because Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has surged in the polls and is threatening to win both the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. That would deal a huge blow to the Clinton campaign.

After co-host Joe Scarborough read off the results of a new CNN/WMUR poll that showed Sanders with a commanding 27 point lead in New Hampshire, Brzezinski had more words for Wasserman Schultz:

“Thank God you controlled that debate thing, because that really helped out,” Brzezinski said.

It sure did.

    Mika banged this nailhead properly, fairly, squarely and loudly. Hope the nail was used on Wasserman-Schultz’ soon to be forgotten political career. What’s with these panicky Clintonite women, from Claire McCaskill to even Hillary herself with all the McCarthyite ramblings, er grumblings? What’s next: Sen. McCaskill going to pull out a list of 57 Reds on Bernie’s staff? Why doesn’t she just settle for outing 57 or so very GOLDEN names of people at any one of the Goldman Sachs “talks” Hillary gave, instead. That list would be far more revealing. Far more.
