Greg Gutfield from Big Hollywood has an excellent post up about the oversaturation of race-baiting at MSNBC. It isn't new. Keith "Der Hack" Olbermann once gave precious time for this kind of activity, so that a well-known nutcase could demonstrate the criteria for her psychiatric diagnosis. In the case of Gutfield's post, it involves Contessa Brewer.
From what I have seen from her, Ms. Brewer does not seem to know much about how getting ahead in the cable news profession. When one analyzes news show ratings, we know that hosts like Olbermann, Schultz, Maddow, and Matthews are not the patterns by which you can safely create a model of success. All of them are failures by any business or industry model, yet they are allowed to continue to impersonate journalists.
Let's put it another way. It's like trying to create a car company out of the DeLorean or Tucker business mold or better yet, trying to make a blockbuster film like Ishtar or Reds. If you wish to be successful in any profession, it's imperative you use examples of people who do it right, not wrong. In Brewer's case, unless she changes her professional ethic, we can safely assume she has attained all the success she ever will. For her, an MSNBC hack is as high of an honor she will ever reach.
Thus, we see another fine example of the soft bigotry of low expectations.
