I fell asleep on the couch last night and work up at 5 a.m. Much to my youngest’s dismay I don’t see Fitchburg schools listed as canceled but I did turn on Way Too Early with Willie Geist and I see they have discovered Eric Fuller now that he has apologized.

That delay resulted in this post which resulted in my single best day since the blog opened, so I guess I should thank the MSNBC crew for delaying.

I presume Morning Joe will have it as well, but the focus is likely going to be another Palin derangement syndrome day.

(I think the battle hymn song is over the top, I think it enters Palin cult territory. I’m sure they are very nice people but I thought it was shall we say…amusing. )

As you might recall Morning Joe went so over the top at the start of Friday’s show than I turned it off and watched the stooges all morning.

When the Eric Fuller statement came out and the left jumped all over it I was sure he would be the lead story on Monday, that was until he decided to publicly threaten a tea party person during the taping of ABC’s town hall on the Tuscon shootings.

Now I’m not a news director but I’d think that the irony of a shooting victim of Jared Zeitgeist Longhner threatening a tea party member, being arrested and involuntarily committed might actually be a story of interest that might bring discussion.

It would be interesting to see how they deal with this story, wouldn’t it? They have dealt with it all right. They’ve dealt it right out of the deck.

I have not seen a single mention of the event, not even a one liner in the base news segment. I’ve been watching since 6:04 and not a peep. Not a word.

Does anyone actually believe that if the roles had been reversed and the tea party person had been arrested it would have been the top story? How can these people actually justify this omission and is there anyone other than naive old me who expected better of them, that is actually surprised?

Let’s not pretend that the MSM is populated by “journalists” The MSM’s making Eric Fuller an unperson proves that it is now only populated by “journolist“.

Update: Nope not a word although I missed the “what have we learned today” segment but an inclusion there would be pretty lame. I’ve learned that MSNBC would rather protect their niche market than report news. I’ve also learned that Joe Scarborough was damn lucky not to be there to get a part of the blame today. Finally i’ve learned that an Instalanche is a great way to start the day. If you are a Glenn Reynolds fan who missed him on my show Saturday Night you can listen to it here. If you are one of those national advertisers that Glenn said is missing out on the 50,000 watts of my radio show, the ad rates are here.

Update 2: 24 hours later Way too early with Willie Geist discovers Eric Fuller reporting his apology. Will that rehabilitate him enough to make him the poster boy for the “blame the tea party” left? We will see.

Update 3: At least one reader was unclear on who Fuller was. This link explains it.

Today on Way too early with Willie Geist we found out the state of the Mitt Romney campaign.

Willie brought up Mitt visit to Leno yesterday and what did he talk about? Romney care, why he should be president, nope the quote that talked was: What does Mitt think of his competition from Wasilla?

Then again considering this story from Hotair maybe it’s better if he just talk about Sarah Palin because if he talks about Romneycare he’s toast.

If there was no Sarah Palin would Way too Early or anyone else care about Romney on Leno? The question answers itself.

This Chris Christie clip is all over the web:

Monday morning after crashing on the couch I woke up really early and expected to see Willie Geist on Way Too Early certain that it would be featured since Gov Christie is held in high esteem on Morning Joe.

Nope no sign, well it’s only a 30 min show so Morning Joe would surely have a clip from it?

Nope.

Now lets give them the benefit of the doubt and assume they had a lot to play with, but this is prime Willie Geist stuff and would lead right into another interview with the Gov.

I’ll watch tomorrow if I’m up. If they leave it out again, then I’m wondering is MSNBC worried about building up Christie? After all he may not be running in 2012 but 2016 is not that far away and every time he opens his mouth he improves the republican brand.
