Carl Higbie on MSNBC et al

Postby Marie » Sat May 27, 2017 8:45 am

Carl Higbie is a Trump apologist who, while admittedly way glib and a masterdebater, makes disingenuous arguments and drives viewers up the wall.


His habit of following a preposterous statement with, "You'd agree to that -- right?" deserves the answer Thomas Roberts returned just a few moments ago on MSNBC:

"NO, I DON'T agree with that, and here's why."

He also uses the deflection technique of challenging points that no one has made.

I'm aware Higbie is appearing on every cable news channel right now, asserting that "all new presidential administrations open back channels," knowing full well that the phrase back channel has, up to now, referred to AUTHORIZED dedicated lines of communication -- not conduits designed to circumvent our national security apparatus (as Jared Kushner's proposed Russian embassy "back channel" would have done).

Higbie should be told that if he again opens the discussion with that assertion, he will be marginalized on the panel and receive no future invitations.

You find out what someone is really like in "battle," and Olbermann is who you want to be in a foxhole with, Patrick said. "On the air, we had each others' backs," said Olbermann.
