Daily Show’s Jon Stewart could not have said it better. Rick Santelli’s now infamous rant (in which he said pretty much said all suffering homeowners were losers undeserving of any bailout money) was a true “let them eat cake” moment.
Even more annoying: NBC decided to fan the flames of the Santelli rant by featuring it at the top of the NBC Nightly News, to push the NBC News theory of a wave of national discontent.
Lately, NBC has been doing creating their own news, like a fire creates its own weather. ????? confronted Gibbs in a press conference the other day about on air remarks made by ????. It was NBC’s way of furthering their news agenda and it feels self serving.
