It’s not looking good for MSNBC…
Just months after they were named the least trusted network in cable news, MSNBC’s head Phil Griffin has been accused of perjury.
The accusations came to light during the trial of Ed Schultz Vs. NBC producer and sound engineer Michael Queen. Queen claims that he had a friendship with Schultz and helped him land “The Ed Show,” but Schultz denies that Queen gave him any help at all.
During his videotaped deposition, Griffin is shown defending Schultz, saying that he was incredibly impressed when he saw Schultz questioning Obama on television as he sat in the front row of the pressroom. This caused him to immediately schedule a meeting with Schultz, and he hired him on the spot.
This makes for a great story: the only problem is it never happened. Schultz did indeed sit in the front row during the press conference, but he never asked Obama a single question.
Last week, the plaintiff’s lawyer Catfish Abbott finally got Schultz to admit that Griffin had lied under oath.
“I will testify that Mr. Griffin was mistaken,” said Schultz. “I didn’t ask any questions.”
It should come as no surprise that the head of MSNBC blatantly lied, considering the network constantly lies in pathetic attempts to defend Obama. However, with Griffin being caught redhanded committing a major crime, it seems likely that the end of his career is near.
