Entitlement Mentality

It's not a secret that MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell gives a hard hitting interview and actually turns the tables on his conservative guests by treating them the way people like Hannity, O'Reilly, and Meghan Kelly treat them on their respective shows.

The same was true on The Last Word recently when Congressman Steve King was on:

When a prominent member of the modern American Right is pressed on the issues - or even chided for their ridiculous positions - the cry from their supplicants is one of "stop beingso mean"!

When examining how the Right completely distorts and misinforms regarding their how their "leadership" is questioned, it reveals that they have an overbearing sense of entitlement in regards to media exposure. Granted, it's a legitimate complaint to point out media distortions of a given position regardless of your socio-political bent, but to claim that a particular member of your political party HAS to be interviewed a certain way, then that shows a lack of credibility and honestly before the first question is even asked.

ASIDE: You'll notice that King immediately launched into a rationale regarding how many times O'Reilly interrupted Obama - a topic that was discussed on many left/progressive blogs - but was not even the reason why King was brought on O'Donnell's program. What is more striking about King's excuse is that it is predicated on the notion of "getting even". That's pretty much par for the course, considering how the new Tea Bagger Congress is approaching their legislative duties.
