On Tuesday afternoon, four of MSNBC’s primetime hosts were seen entering the West Wing for a meeting with President Obama.
Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery tweeted that she saw Schultz’s colleagues Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O’Donnell, and Al Sharpton all entering the White House. Maddow reportedly joked that she was there for a “hippie cabal”:
UPDATE: A source familiar with the meeting tells Mediaite that MSNBC personalities were only the most recognizable among the attendees, but there were many other “progressive media” members in attendance, including from the Washington Post, Daily Kos, and the Huffington Post.
User Joshua Tomblin commented:
They were being thanked for handing the election to Obama. If they had reported the truth he never would have won.
Rob Doyle commented:
The state controlled media comes to the White House for their talking points.
I applaud MSNBC for being open about the fact they’ve gone completely left and aren’t trying to act like they are an objective news organization anymore.
The honesty is refreshing.
