Freudian Slip Of The Day

Someone need share the starter’s playbook with those coming in off the bench.

Filling in for co-host Matt Lauer on Friday’s NBC Today, CNBC’s Carl Quintanilla seemed to suggest the media was helping the Obama administration shape public perception of the economy: “…we’re in a situation where we’re sort of managing expectations, especially for the White House.”

Wow, we would have never guessed the media had chosen sides….

    Freudian Slip ?

    He simply spoke the truth while ad-libbing a bit….. that is not exactly what the term Freudian Slip means.

    I’ll bet he does get his peepee whacked though ………………

    The great expectations for their messiah must be replaced by his media disciples with disguised excuses for his failures.   The Ministry of Truth will send Carl Quintanilla for discipline and reeducation in doublespeak.  Doublespeak is language that deliberately disguises, distorts, or reverses the meaning of words. … It may also be deployed as intentional ambiguity, or reversal of meaning (for example, naming a state of war “peace”). In such cases, doublespeak disguises the nature of the truth, producing a communication bypass.”

    He got the playbook in which they’re told to help Obama – they just forgot to tell him he was supposed to pretend to be objective.

    His boss after going off the air:
    “Quintanilla! Get in here! Dammit! You’re not supposed to announce on air we’re helping Obama! We’re pretending to be unbiased journalists here! Don’t go off the reservation again or it’ll be your hide next time! There are people out there who still believe we’re unbiased!”

    The problem with Affirmative Action hiring practices is that you rarely get the quality you want.
