Greenwald to MSNBC Clowns: “The White House talking points that you’re using are completely misleading and false”

We might suggest he was being hyperbolic but they do have a history of using White House talking points.

On Morning Joe this morning, journalist Glenn Greenwald dismissed MSNBC co-host Mika Brzezinski for reading off of “White House talking points” during an interview they had with him.

Brzezinski indicated that Greenwald’s stories were raising the wrong kind of speculation about the programs, reminding him that they were in fact legal.

“I just want an answer, yes or no,” she began. “Isn’t it the case that reviewing of e-mails or any wiretapping cannot take place without an additional warrant from a judge and a review? It’s not like there’s haphazard probing into all of our personal e-mails.”

The White House talking points that you’re using are completely misleading and false,” Greenwald replied heatedly, reminding her that the NSA was exercising the power to listen to phone conversations and read emails of American citizens communicating overseas.

If you don’t think that empty head is using White House guidance, remember this?

    Mika is little more than Valerie Jarrett’s mouthpiece. And Joe’s chirpy, airhead sidekick.

    MSNBC has been deliberately disingenuous for as long as I can recall. They couldn’t do a better job as propaganda ministers for the Zerobama administration if they worked in an office or studio at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
