Sycophancy: MSNBC Host Grovels for Elizabeth Warren’s Autograph… ON the Air!


So, much for unbiased, just-the-facts, journalism over at MSNBC. The Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell was so star struck when Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren came on his show that he stopped everything in order to get her autograph and did so on the air!

Like a kid meeting his favorite teen rock star, O’Donnell shoved a copy of Warren’s “first bill” across the table slobberingly saying, “if I could just get your autograph on my copy of the first Warren bill… this is very exciting.”

O’Donnell even promised to frame the Xerox copy of the bill as if the “first Warren bill” is a keepsake for the ages.

Not much sycophancy there, eh?

Let’s state the obvious, shall we? Anyone that acts like a love-struck teenaged girl over a mere politician (like MSNBC’s O’Donnell did here) does not belong reporting about them as if they are real reporters.
