Several MSNBC hosts, including Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, Al Sharpton and Ed Schultz, went to the White House yesterday for a briefing with the President on his tax plan.

When asked by Politico about the meeting, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the following:

“This afternoon at the White House, the President met with influential progressives to talk about the importance of preventing a tax increase on middle class families, strengthening our economy and adopting a balanced approach to deficit reduction.”

Those influential progressives just happen to be a part of a network that was so blatantly pro-Obama during the election that they didn’t report any negative stories about the President in the last week leading up to Election Day.

The meeting with the left-wing hosts at MSNBC is from the same White House that three years ago accused Fox News of being an arm of the Republican party.

Tell me again exactly which cable news network is doing the bidding of which political party?
