Or so says Chris Hayes, host of MSNBC’s “All In.”

Paul Bedard notes at the Washington Examiner:

On his show last week, Hayes reported that superstar singer-actress Jennifer Lopez had performed for the authoritarian and repressive Turkmenistan President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedow. He then sneered:

“As one Twitter user put it, on the bright side, Gigli’s no longer the worst thing she’s done. Now, of course, this isn’t the first time a celebrity has performed for an egomaniacal tyrant who uses fear and paranoia to keep followers in line. Beyonce did sing at a New Year’s eve bash to entertain the family of Moammar Gadhafi and Elton John performed at the fourth wedding of Rush Limbaugh.”

“So, when it comes to tyrants who use paranoia to ‘keep followers in line,’ Hayes’ mind goes to impugning a popular conservative voice. Just the kind of cheap shot which must delight his liberal audience, but which likely turns off everyone else,” said Brent Baker, Vice President of Research at the Media Research Center.

Don’t forget, Hayes is the MSNBC host who caused a stir when he said he didn’t feel comfortable calling fallen American military “heroes.”

Maybe there really should be an investigation of NBC and MSNBC.  In addition to learning why the network uses edited video, we can get some professional help for the on-air “talent.”
