On October 2, 2013 Chris Hayes had on Larry Kudlow to discuss the economics of the government shut down. All I can say is, I could not believe he was the one Chris went to for insight. Maybe he had to because, you know, Kudlow is related to him via the network they work at. But really, Chris could you not get your bosses to understand how someone like Kudlow professing on your show does harm to your identity and thus the relationship you have with your viewers?
Let me be clear, my impression of you and your show is that you strive to deal in facts. I have seen you have people of the conservative ideology on, but they have seemed to be people who use facts interpreted via their ideology. That’s a conversation. But Kudlow promoting “supply side”? I mean is anyone in the real world even using this phrase anymore?
My hope with this post is that our good readers will post corrections to Kudlow and note why your guest is completely full of crap thus giving you a little help and cover as I’m going with the idea that your boss made you do it. But more importantly, your viewers deserve not having to have this crap pushed at them. I have found people know the Kudlow view of the economy is baloney, but the don’t know why it is baloney and you having him on only makes their angst worse.
Let me get to it: Do you really believe your viewers bought this nonsense? Do you believe your viewers do not know it is nonsense?
Do you really want to promote and by virtue of it being on your show endorse the idea that the problem with our economy is businesses being taxed too much AND Obamacare?
Considering the following, you have been used man.
In the end, you confirm you are with him… regarding the need for the economy to grow. But, I think most people will only hear that you are with him. Not good. Not good for you, not good for this nation.
So, please contact us here at Angry Bear. Anyone of us are more than capable of explaining the mess this economy is in and why the Kudlow’s of the world no longer have any credibility.
Oh, to you MSNBC what the hell is the matter with you? Is Kudlow loosing his audience so you figure putting him on with Chris will boost his cred?
