And people wonder why MSNBC has like ten viewers or something.
Watch the Leftist hack Contessa Brewer as she does her contortion act on national television (albeit to perhaps ten people live). She keeps this up and she’ll have one nasty case of athlete’s tongue.
From Ed Morrissey:
Brooks actually has three degrees: political science, economics, and law. As a lawyer, Brooks would have been experienced enough not to make Brewer’s mistake in a cross-examination, which is to ask a question without first knowing the answer. Not only that, but Brewer was being flat-out rude as well as foolish; MSNBC invited Brooks to appear to get his perspective on the issues. If their hosts respond by belittling them (whether it backfires or not), what does that say about MSNBC, its management, and the kind of invitations they make?
Since Brewer made an issue out of having an economics degree before engaging in economics debates, she must have a doctorate in the subject herself, right? Not exactly. According to her Wikipedia entry, Brewer has a baccalaureate in broadcast journalism (magna cum laude). Apparently they didn’t teach interviewing skills at Syracuse, or logic either, as a requisite for the degree.
Contessa Brewer has a four-year degree in broadcast journalism. Not exactly a rigorous science, that. And she wants to antagonize and belittle a politician, calling his education into question on subject matter that she is very poorly educated in. And she sticks her foot in her mouth up to the knee. Of course, it’s quite typical behavior from the radical Leftist MSNBC. Perhaps that’s why they have such dismal viewership numbers.
It seems to me I’ve seen this play before. But the version I’m familiar with has a foreign socialist with a book-putter-backer degree arguing economics with an American businessman with an Ivy League economics degree. With much the same results.
