“He is sort of the model figure for who we are,” Griffin said. “He doesn’t stick out loving politics and being passionate about politics. It comes across in everything we do … And that’s Chris.”

“Model figure for who we are”

In an interview with Michael Calderone in The Huffington Post, MSNBC president Phil Griffin said that the network’s viewpoints are progressive, and not simply pro-Obama.

“This channel has never been the voice of Obama. Ever. People want to talk about Fox. Fox is the voice of the Republican Party.”

That seems to fly in the face of a new study that was released this week by the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism, which showed that MSNBC reporting on Obama was overwhelming positive, and extremely negative about Romney, during the final week of the campaign.

If the network wasn’t the voice of Obama, then how does Griffin explain the fact that they didn’t report one single negative story about Obama in the last week of the election?

As for Fox News being the voice of the Republican Party, a charge first issued by the White House in 2009, the same Pew study showed that while the network favored Romney over Obama, it was by a smaller margin than MSNBC’s flag-waving for Obama. It showed that they weren’t afraid to criticize the GOP when they thought it was necessary or justified.

Phil Griffin is President of MSNBC, a United States cable news channel that Griffin has stated is “the place to go for progressives”.

He was named President in July, 2008.

Griffin orchestrated the launch of several popular MSNBC shows, including “The Rachel Maddow Show”, “The Ed Show”, “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” and “Morning Joe”. Griffin was with MSNBC from its start in 1996 and previously was executive producer for shows such as “Hardball with Chris Matthews” and “The Big Show with Keith Olbermann”.

Griffin was born in Chappaqua, New York. At age 11, he moved with his family to Ohio. In 1979 he graduated with a BA degree in literature from Vassar College where he wrote his thesis on Milton’s Paradise Lost. Soon after, he moved to Atlanta and started work with CNN during their early years where he met and worked with Keith Olbermann who worked there as a sportscaster. After several years with CNN working primarily as a writer-producer-editor in their sports department, Griffin began work at NBC in 1983 as a sports producer for the Today Show.

Nazi Germany along with The USSR had many “Chris Mathews’ who were passionate about politics(State Control).

Nearly all were eliminated quite early in the Great Purge of useful idiots.

Hey, I like squirrels, they actually do a great deal of real work finding food and raising little ones. Actually fun to watch, unlike Chrissy Fit.

How about “Oppossum on crack, in zero gravity”? Only time I see them they hiss at me and bare their teeth. Much better fit for Chris Matthews.

MSNBC President Phil Griffin’s Howler: We ‘Live in the World of Facts’

By Noel Sheppard | September 06, 2012 | 07:22

MSNBC president Phil Griffin must be the most deluded executive in the television news industry.

On Wednesday, he actually told the Huffington Post his farce of a network is “about smarts, it’s about depth....[our people] live in the world of facts.”

“People connect with us,” Griffin told the Post.

“It’s not about just having your ideas reflected back at you. That is bogus. That is wrong. It is about trusting people who do their homework, who know it, who live in the world of facts. They connect with all these people. There is a personal connection between our hosts and our audience. They believe in them. They trust them because they do the homework.”

I guess Griffin has missed the immutable fact that across the internet, on a daily basis, numerous websites call out MSNBC for its blatant misrepresentations and continuous departures from the truth.

MSNBC has become a joke within the journalism industry, which is saying a lot given the public’s low regard for the news media.

Progressive Wallahs say their fat wad against America still stands.

Wallahs fear that radical Progressives will unleash terror attacks if they cancel Chris Matthews.

When Crissy Mathews is touted as the ideal for anything, you know they have degenerated to subhuman status...oh wait, their simply Democrats.

Well OK, if you say so.

"In 1979 he graduated with a BA degree in literature from Vassar College..."
wellll; that explains it...
Vassar College is a private (Elitist, my comment :), liberal-arts college in Poughkeepsie, NY.
Founded by Matthew Vassar in 1861, it claims to have been the first all-women’s college
in the country. Formerly one of the Seven Sisters, Vassar College went coed in 1969...
kitty-whipped from the start..

MSNBC would have been right at home pimping for the old Soviet Union.

The only thing necessary to do was change their logo into Cyrillic and all their colors to shades of red.

Of course Chris Matthews is a model for the official White House channel, MSNBC.

After all, Himmler was the model for the Nazi propaganda-machine.
