MSNBC Does Liberal Hate Talk
If you want a classic example of what MSNBC is all about, just watch this Lawrence O'Donnell badgering of Republican Tom Graves. The point is for O'Donnell to please his leftist audience by seeing him beat up on a conservative. There's no effort made to conduct a meaningful exchange of ideas, or to advance his audience's understanding of the budget battle.
Tom Graves is a freshman congressman from one of the most conservative districts in the country - the ninth district of Georgia.
