Media Matters Boot Camp

The far left, George Soros funded media “watchdog,” Media Matters, has started a “boot camp” for left wing pundits who appear on cable news.  Apparently liberals suck at articulating their ideas, although I thought they were just too smart to be understood by common folk.  Anyway, Fox News host Great Van Susteren, never shy about reacting to stories on her blog, finds this to be “so weird.”

I just read in the Washington Post that there is an organization that has paid for and attended training (they call it ‘boot camp’) for “combat on Fox News.” Boot camp? Combat? really? They fear Fox and they refer to themselves as “shock troops” yet they are so fearful and uncertain of themselves that they are paying money for some training? You can’t buy courage and strength of conviction. You got it or you don’t. If you are afraid of your own shadow, money just won’t help. We sure are lucky these “shock troops” are not in those F 15’s over Libya!

I really don’t get it — how can you profess to know so much yet be so scared to come on Fox News Channel? Do you know how pathetic that is? Who are they afraid of? Bill O’Reilly? Is he going to call you a pinhead? Oh, no, not that!! getting called a pinhead!! That is so terrifying! By the way, he has called me a pinhead on air and I am still alive (note: people don’t die when called pinheads.)

And who is FORCING these scared kittens to appear on Fox? They get invited and they show up….so what’s the problem? Just don’t show up!

And even stranger, some “Harvard honed instructors” are doing the training? Really Harvard honed instructors? Who are they? Now that is really a scam! I can tell you what to do and it won’t cost you a dime. All you have to do is know your stuff and be intellectually honest and you can take on any interviewer, any time.

Greta is exactly right.  Why would anyone need training to argue for their beliefs?  I can understand some pointers about looking into the camera and not talking over other guests, but how hard can it be to go on cable news and argue for something?

Red Eye took the Media Matters folks on, in the best way they know how. It’s another edition of Red Eye Robot Theater!

    They see themselves as perpetual victims. No matter how many programs they create, no matter how much debt they rack-up, they’re always the ‘victim’. That’s why they get so upset when Conservatives complain about media bias. ”You’re playing the victim. We’re the only ones who are allowed to do that. Don’t you know the rules?”
