      This is almost funnier than the jokes at the Correspondents’ Dinner, which is saying something. Alan and I sat through this kind of talk on MSNBC from 8:30 our time until around 10:30, continually hitting mute button to save our ears. What a relief to finally hear our calm President’s voice giving us the straight scoop. But I was so keyed up by the time we were free to go to bed I had to take a Xanax to get to sleep.

    Bobbleheads. Bunch of bobbleheads. Why not fill the time with other news? And that Geraldo has got to be one of the most ignorant and vile pieces of scum on TV…..only Fox would have him. I’d love to see him punched in the nose again. By the way, HI CHIPS 😀

    LOL @ fox insisting it was about Gaddafi and CNN saying it’s NOT about Gaddafi.

    Did anyone count the “We’re not speculating”(s) as they speculated? FOX was a real beauty in their off-track speculating, just throwing junk out there. Irresponsible and misleading, as always.

    They need to stop trying to beat each other at breaking the news by reporting the news before it happens. They need to just let the news happen. And it was so rude to upstage such an important announcement by getting it out before the man who made it possible. They are like children.

    Compelling demonstration of our MSM as nothing more than a highly compensated gaggle of complete and total fools who love nothing more than the sound of their own insane voices. GAH. What an embarrassment.

      Wow I’m actually impressed for the first time EVER by a media person giving a true unabashed depiction of our President, well done on that Mr. ODonnell. And I think the cartoon below is pretty cute too.

      You can always count on Lawrence O’Donnell to tell it as it is. I love that man!!! Thanks for sharing @theboysisters.

    I was just watching CNN and a reporter said that the CIA MIGHT release the death photo today. She said officials are leaning toward it, but there are some who are hesitant to do so. She said the final decision would come from the WH.

      I hope not. They think there is a new Bin Laden Video or Audio recording that has not been seen/heard before. The smart move would be to hold on to the photos and wait till someone releases that and tries to start a conspiracy theory that he is still alive.

    That was just a microcosm of what happens for 24 hours a day on these cable news channels: they have to fill the air time with something — anything — so they just talk and talk and talk and pull stuff out of their asses and regurgitate it onto the public. Geraldo is a damn clown and why he was anchoring any sort of important coverage is beyond me, but whatever, what would one expect from Fux?

    Jesus Christ! Is this what the cable news America watches every day? Dear lord. Save the poor souls. No offense my friends. Now I know where those 38% who believed PBO was born elsewhere come from. They are Fox News and Friends!

      It’s a total shame, isn’t it? That’s why PBO has said over and over that he doesn’t not watch that junk.

    What an absolute hot mess Fox (not news) really is. Every single thing they speculated about was false. If they weren’t brainwashing so many low information voters it would be funny.

    Hilarious “We’re not speculating” ROFL! I feel your pain guys, this is beyond embarrassing.
    @theboysisters – that video is too funny, loved the scene with the whole family in the VW van and the ears of PBO.

    Good day everyone,

    Please take time to read Deaniac’s latest essay:


    “Glenn Greenwald, Creepy” – so totally true.

    And, please spread it far and wide.

    Hi everyone. I wish we would all give CNN a call or drop them an email about their helping the rethugs try to give Bush credit for bin Laden’s killing. Last night Anderson Cooper had that cretin Andy Card on who kept saying the intel was due to Bush and they kept showing photos of that incompetent idiot who was handed the presidency. Morning Joke had Condi Rice and Guilianni on. Rumsfeld has been given a platform to lie as well.


    I have many, many problems with Ed Schultz, but he dealt with the issue of the rethugs trying to steal credit beautifully.

    But they need to hear from us in droves.

    Bush and the rethugs trashed this country and President Obama and the top notch admin he assembled have worked non-stop to get things back on track. I’ll be damned if I sit and watch them take credit for his hard work.

    Please, let’s make our voices heard.

    They all knew what is was about. Brian Williams pretty much admitted that on Dave Letterman’s show last night. He said the WH texted him that OBL was killed, but that he couldn’t say anything about it and should just head to his office.

    They knew, which makes their non-speculating speculating that much more ridiculous. Thing with the media? They CREATE the sideshow and then act as their own “carnival barkers” for the sideshows they create.

    I despise the U.S. media.

    What a bunch of loud mouth overpaid idiots. We are not speculating, but they keep on doing just that. Geez, tired of these cable chatterers.

    Ha ha Fox Noise was told that bin Laden was bombed about a week ago. How can they just continue to make up sh*t. They are laughable and pathetic. Who wastes their time looking at that junky station?
