During the 'Morning Joe' Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski show on MSNBC the other morning the White House was upset with all the guests that were coming on the show. So they got ahold of the hosts of the show directly to complain or tell them that they need allow equal time to those who are in favor of Obamacare.
The next day they had Axelrod on to rebutt what had been said the previous day about the healthcare bill.
We know this because Ed Schultz, who also works for MSNBC, witnessed the whole thing.
Is it really possible that the White House has a direct line to MSNBC's hosts, communicating with them during their live broadcasts? Now THAT'S state control!
Now, imagine if Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, or another non-"progressive" host had been caught taking orders from Bush during the program. When would we ever hear the end of that?
