Over the Weekend, Two Democratic Voices Call for a Boycott of MSNBC



Is MSNBC the new Chick-fil-A?

I don’t mean they’re incredibly polite or serve up delicious things people crave. I’m talking about getting boycotted.


On Saturday, movie star John Cusack encouraged his 1.5+ million Twitter followers to lay off the MSNBC due to their unfair coverage of 2020 hopeful Bernie Sanders.

Your rich Uncle Bernie — who wants to transition America into the favored economic system of the Nazis — has been getting a bum deal in John’s view.

And here’s how:

“To be clear MSNBC, you did this to yourself, no one made you parade neocons [and] neoliberal pundits to slander [and] smear a people’s movement that you KNOW is not radical but a return to FDR politics.”

It’s not radical to take away capitalism and replace it with socialism?

John concluded with, “I’ll just leave this here. #BoycottMSNBC.”

The actor — who was featured in the great Say Anything, the interesting Identity, the praised Being John Malkovich, the beloved High Fidelity…and let’s not forget Hot Tub Time Machine — is quite the politically-outspoken entertainer.

Feast your eyes:


And there was this:

He’s surely pleased as punch over impeachment:

I suppose we’ll need someone to take the reigns from Mike Pence after the President is pushed out the back door, and Bernie’s John’s guy.

Therefore, Cusack’s not happy with the Peacock mocking the revolution — seen in his post’s montage.

Is MSNBC losing its coolness? On Saturday — the same day as John’s tweeted airfist — I covered presidential candidate Andrew Yang’s boycott of the outlet.

During Wednesday night’s debate, Andrew got the short end of the stick.

The majority of the candidates spoke for more than 10 minutes; Tulsi Gabbard and Tom Steyer didn’t. In last place: Andrew, with 6 minutes and 48 seconds.


So when it comes to MSNBC, as far as Yang’s concerned, who needs ’em?

A Fox boycott championed in the public square is nothing new. But to have notable Democratic voices cutting off the most left-wing network on television is something of a Halley’s Comet rarity.

And it isn’t just them.


Enjoy it while it lasts. And if you’re of a similar mind, feel free to support Bernie and Andrew by, I guess, watching Fox.
