Bully: MSNBC’s Tamron Hall lets bias show, bullies reporter

The Washington Examiner’s Tim Carney appeared on MSNBC with anchor Tamron Hall today and then this happened.

So @tamronhall, trying to talk about Mitt Romney's 50-year-old bullying kicked me off her show for saying the topic doesn't matter.

But, wait. The oh-so-professional and unbiased anchor didn’t just cut him off by talking over him; she cut off his microphone.

Wait, @tamronhall cut off my mic? Seriously? RT @sandraDXB: @TPCarney …it's funny, cus, you were on mute…..yeah #tamron

She literally silenced his speech! And yet continued to yell at him while he could not respond.

So that's the first time a TV host cut off my mic. Best part: when she put me back on camera at the end to yell at me while I had a dead mic

The always wrong Think Progress’ Lee Fang finds this a good thing, of course. Hey, if you can’t beat them, silence them.

The rest of Twitter? Not so much.

@TPCarney MSNBC is a joke. They would rather shout down and silence their critics rather than actually debate the issues.

Tamron Hall's treatment of Tim Carney was unprofessional. Getting harder for MSNBC to pretend its daytime coverage isn't also biased.

This is what happens when you question the mainstream media narrative. http://t.co/39n527Wp #metameta @tpcarney @tamronhall

#Journolist RT @runedart: Shorter @tamronhall: "When I invite u on my show 2discuss something, do not assume it will b a two-way dialogue."

Here is the alleged journalist in action.You are in her house!

Silly Tim! She had a false narrative to promote, dammit, and how dare you try to sway it?

Silly @TamronHall is scared of @TPCarney exposing her #LapdogMedia status… #CutTheMIC!!!

#Lapdogmedia is right.

UPDATE: Tamron Hall is trending and not in the good way.

Tamron Hall thought the best way to discuss bullying was to be a bully herself? What a strong, empowered women she is.

Does @tamronhall give a damn about fairness, or hearing both sides? No. http://t.co/IvcwsH7l #msnbc is not journalism, it's propaganda.

@TamronHall cuts off contributor w/ opposing view. To be fair she works at MSNBC it's not like she's a real journalist http://t.co/WVnDnUn1
