Rachel Maddow Mocks Media’s ‘Smoochy Smoochy Love Bubble’ And Paul Ryan

Rachel Maddow is not very happy with the mainstream media, or more to the point, the mainstream media’s promotion of Paul Ryan’s new budget that he calls “Pathway to Prosperity.” In five minute segment on her show last night, the MSNBC host methodically took a part many of the core economic assumptions to Ryan’s budget proposal, many of which seem optimistic at best, delusional at worst. But it wasn’t Ryan that caught the majority of Maddow’s ire – it was the media’s “smoochy, smoochy love bubble surrounding” the Wisconsin Congressman.

In five minute segment on her show last night, the MSNBC host methodically took a part many of the core economic assumptions to Ryan’s budget proposal, many of which seem optimistic at best, delusional at worst. But it wasn’t Ryan that caught the majority of Maddow’s ire – it was the media’s “smoochy, smoochy love bubble surrounding” the Wisconsin Congressman. “>both men literally shared “I love you.” But Maddow’s target was more than the Fox News opinionators, it was the balance of media that, according to Maddow, paid little to no attention to the actual numbers in the budget; actual numbers that she calls “laughably weird or wrong.”

NY Times columnist Gail Collins joined Maddow to discuss this further, which you can watch below, courtesy of MSNBC:
