What’s with MSNBC?

Following my usual practice, I woke this morning and grabbed the remote to check out the news coverage on the various channels.  When I got to MSNBC, I thought I was still captured in the arms of Morpheus.  The Morning Joe panel was discussing the appearance of John Boehner and Mitch McConnell on CBS’s 60 Minutes.  Except for the uber liberal co-host, Mika Brzezinski, the MSNBC panel seemed unusually positive in their assessment of the GOP duo.

The real shocker came when they discussed the Koch brothers, who appear on liberal dart boards across the nation.  They noted what most media folks miss.  The Koch brothers are libertarian conservatives, meaning they tend to be pro-choice and okay with gay marriage.  The panel also praised them for their enormous contributions to education, culture and medicine.

At this point, I had to check the television menu to see if I had crossed wires with FOX News.

It just goes to show that truth is a most persistent virtue.
