Meet NBC’s David Gregory, Typical Dishonest Leftwing Media Propagandist Hack, Falsely Attacking Newt Gingrich

Here are your typical “journalists” talking on a typical mainstream media version of the Ministry of Propaganda:

As NBC’s Meet the Press panel ripped into Newt Gingrich on Sunday for his comments on poor children in inner cities lacking working role models, Manchester Union Leader publisher Joe McQuaid was the lone voice of dissent: “I think he gets a bum rap on the child labor thing.”

That prompted host David Gregory to declare: “Are you really saying that the working poor in this country don’t have good role models of how to work hard?…How do you get to that practical solution and not see it as a kind of grotesque distortion of what’s really happening out there?”

Mcquaid explained: “…there are kids in inner city schools who’ve never had a job, and they only have one parent and they have no idea what the work ethic is like….Not the working poor. But these are people who are not working and the kids are not working, and this gives a chance for the kids to take a broom, work in the cafeteria.”

Moments later, BBC Washington correspondent Katty Kay argued:

…it seems that in the country, this sort of general zeitgeist has shifted from a real loathing of big government to, to some extent, fears about the middle class being squeezed and problems of inequality. And I think, in that context, Newt Gingrich’s comments about the working poor and poor kids who can only find work if it’s illegal come across as the wrong tone in the country at the moment. That’s not where America is at the moment.

See, here’s the funny thing: it couldn’t be more obvious that Newt Gingrich was most definitely NOT referring to “the working poor.”

Here’s what Newt actually said – and I’ll even quote from the Daily Kos:

“Really poor children in really poor neighborhoods have no habits of working and have nobody around them who works,” the former House speaker said at a campaign event at the Nationwide Insurance offices. “So they literally have no habit of showing up on Monday. They have no habit of staying all day. They have no habit of ‘I do this and you give me cash,’ unless it’s illegal.”

Now here’s my question, David Gregory, you dishonest hatchet-man liberal polemicist: HOW IN THE HELL CAN THAT BE REFERRING TO “THE WORKING POOR” when Newt Gingrich specifically says they “have nobody around them who works”???

Is it okay for the media to just invent stories now???

This is just plain dishonesty.  And the mainstream media is going to pull out every single lie they can to destroy Gingrich.

David Gregory is a dishonest and biased man who has no business in journalism.  Unless you factor in that the field of “journalism” has long since been “socialized” (as Maxine Waters famously threatened to do to American oil companies) and Gregory is just one more liberal lemming in a vast herd of liberal lemmings.

ABC at least gets the spirit of what Gingrich was trying to say correctly (at least here):

“They have no habit of showing up on Monday and staying all day or the concept of ’I do this and you give me cash,’ unless it’s illegal,” Gingrich said.

Gingrich said that successful people he knows started work early by doing small jobs like babysitting and shoveling snow.

“You have a very poor neighborhood. You have students that are required to go to school. They have no money, no habit of work,” Gingrich said. “What if you paid them in the afternoon to work in the clerical office or as the assistant librarian? And let me get into the janitor thing. What if they became assistant janitors, and their job was to mop the floor and clean the bathroom?”

Gingrich talked about a program around while he was in Congress called “Earning While Learning,” which paid students to read books. He said it was the same concept of students gaining money for doing acedemic work that he would like to see students to invest in.

“They wanted the money. The kids were showing up saying, ‘I demand you let me read. You can’t keep me from this program,” Gingrich said.

Gingrich said there would be a lot of details to work out, but the general principle was “exactly the right direction for America’s future.

“If we are all endowed by our creator with the right to pursue happiness, that has to apply to the poorest neighborhoods in the poorest counties, and I am prepared to find something that works, that breaks us out of the cycles we have now to find a way for poor children to work and earn honest money,” Gingrich said.

Now, a lot of conservatives aren’t all that happy about this “program” Newt is suggesting, oh, I don’t know, BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE THE DAMN MONEY.

But it’s just another day for General Electric-owned NBC to reveal its pathological bias against Republicans.
