Hey Howell! What about Andrea Mitchell?

Howell Raines is the former executive editor of the New York Times. In a WAPO opinion piece today titled "Why don't honest journalists take on Roger Ailes and Fox News?", he straddles the line between self-parody and bombasity.

He missed this on MSNBC, where Andrea Mitchell pleads with a Democratic congressman:
ANDREA MITCHELL: Bottom line, what happens if you don't get health care for this president is, this is really all-or-nothing for the sense of his power, his legacy, he's invested so much in this, in this first year. You've got to get this for him.

ELIJAH CUMMINGS: Andrea, I agree with you a million percent.
Perhaps Howell is watching the wrong channel!
