MSNBC’s Big Relaunch is More “Team Obama” Than Ever

Screen Shot 2014-05-20 at 7.07.14 AMThey don’t even bother hiding it anymore.

Accuracy In Media (AIM) calls NBC and MSNBC “a virtual arm of the Democratic Party” now that they’ve joined forces to create the new “Growing Hope” website. And what a website it is…if you like being manipulated. It’s annoying to go through the site, but the way they’re spreading their message is infuriating.

They’ve taken their 2010 “Lean Forward” motto (that Obama ended up using for his 2012 campaign) and now changed it into Growing Hope. The thing that set me on edge right off the bat is how they do university tours, “…inviting students and others to ‘engage with the brand and share their hopes for change around issues that impact their communities.'”

The “brand” they keep rebranding is Obama.

Why is a news network going from school to school when it’s not even following a campaign  to sell a political party? A NEWS NETWORK! Another perfect example of the media losing their objectivity and bowing at the feet of their Chosen One. “[It’s] part of President Obama’s Organizing for Action, the successor organization to Obama for America and, prior to that, Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign,” says AIM.

Personally, I can’t stand the sickly-sweet opening page of Growing Hope. They want your name (which leads to having to sign in with Twitter, Facebook, Google or your own website) and then your answer to the question, “Your hope?” Oh, shut up! Then endure their “Invitation to America.” Blah. If you go to their “Republican” section (yeah, they really have one), among other things, you’re greeted with a hit piece on Oregon’s likely winner for the GOP senator candidate slot, Dr. Monica Wehby. The article is written by Irin Carmon. Google her name and this comes up first: “She is a Visiting Fellow in the Program for the Study of Reproductive Justice at Yale Law School.”

AIM writes about another hit piece, “The great GOP #fail on women,” where they claim that  the “GOP is losing women because it is too conservative.” Then Jane C. Timm writes, “As a result, Republican women who do end up running are far more conservative than women candidates were 20 years ago.” Timm threw in Todd Akin’s abortion comments in her article. Timm is a producer for MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” Google a few of the writers from the Republican section and you’ll get the idea. Why they even bothered adding it is beyond me.

While I don’t suggest you check out the website until you’re well rested and relaxed, do check out AIM‘s article on the site at:
