• Why is Ronan Farrow So Excited to Be Broadcasting Outside an Ebola Victim’s Hospital?

    I’ll surely be accused of splitting hairs over this one, but why does MSNBC’s resident Boy Wonder seem so utterly electrified about doing his poorly-rated afternoon program live from just outside the hospital where Thomas Eric Duncan is currently being treated for Ebola? Something seemed mightily “off” about young Ronan Farrow’s tone and delivery here, as he shouted with great excitement, “We’re back live from Dallas, Texas in what’s become the center of a national concern over Ebola cases in this country!

    You’d think the kid was broadcasting from a One Direction concert or something. “The very first diagnosis of Ebola on U.S. soil, Thomas Eric Duncan, is right here in this hospital behind me!” Farrow proclaimed with giddy glee.

    It wasn’t exactly Ed Sullivan announcing, “Ladies and gentlemen, The Beatles!!!” — but it was pretty darned close.

    Some news happening at that hospital right now: the family of Thomas Eric Duncan due to arrive any minute now to meet with medical staff, this emergency response team that’s formed here,” continued the blonde anchor. “They’ve also been meeting today with Reverend Jesse Jackson, who has arrived in this community at their specific request, we’re hearing reportedly over concerns as to whether Thomas Eric Duncan is receiving equal treatment.”

    Well THAT explains it! The tyke was clearly all keyed up over Jesse Jackson coming to town!

    Man, it’s easy to impress progressives, isn’t it? You don’t need any movie stars; just present them with a famous race hustler and they’ll melt into a sycophantic pile of excited fan-boy before your very eyes!
