Imus producer on man who admitted killing Ramsey: “He looks like Ned Lamont, actually. Is that who you want representing you, Connecticut?”
On the August 17 edition of MSNBC’s Imus in the Morning, executive producer Bernard McGuirk said that John Mark Karr, the man who reportedly admitted to killing 6-year-old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey in 1996, “looks like Ned Lamont, actually.” McGuirk then asked: “Is that who you want representing you, Connecticut?”

McGuirk’s remarks were just the latest attack against Lamont, the Democratic nominee for a Connecticut Senate seat. As the weblog Think Progress noted, on the August 16 edition of Fox News Live, former Weekly Standard deputy publisher David Bass said that a woman who caused a plane to be diverted after suffering a panic attack was “probably not a terrorist; could just be a Ned Lamont supporter.” As Media Matters for America has noted, since his victory in the primary on August 8, Lamont has been cast by members of the media as a part of the “Taliban wing” of the Democratic party, “anti-American,” “defeatist” and the latest example of how Democrats have become “apologists for terrorists.”

From the August 17 edition of MSNBC’s Imus in the Morning:

McGUIRK: He was a nutjob obsessed with child slayings. He was supposedly researching a book on it, and he’s clearly a pencil-necked pervert himself.

IMUS: Yeah.

McGUIRK: But, again, until they have some DNA or some hard evidence, he could be just jerking everybody’s chain here.

IMUS: Now, when we — well, this footage that I’m looking at on MSNBC, was that from yesterday?

McGUIRK: He looks like Ned Lamont, actually. Is that who you want representing you, Connecticut?

From the August 16 edition of Fox News Live:

BASS: Unfortunately, it is the new normal. I mean, there’s no more shouting, you know, fire in a theater. This is serious stuff. You know, you say the wrong thing, do the wrong thing, information is conveyed in a wrong manner, you can have a plane being shot down, so it’s — People are on edge. You can’t really — she’s probably not Al Qaeda affiliated, probably not a terrorist; could just be a Ned Lamont supporter, we don’t know. But it’s —

BOB SELLERS (host): Had to go there, didn’t you?

BASS: I did.

No Comments to “Imus producer likens Ned Lamont to man who murdered Jon-Benet”

  • Usually can’t stomach the blovacious ignorance that emanates from that bunch, but if you seek true entertainment you have to catch this spoiled group when they get their indignation up…That’s a real show! Just Imagine if anyone near the center left had said that about Lieberman…it would have trumped the Jon Benet case its self. I am certain there will be repetitive attacks of this nature as November nears, just wait till the core goppers get the Lamont swift boat in the water, I have a feeling we ain’t seen nothing yet.

  • At least they are not calling Lamont a Frenchman. Imus clearly does not like democracy or respect the will of the voters of CT. Crooks&Liars has a clip of Imus threatening Chris Dodd, by implying that he/Imus has some sort of damaging blackmail-type knowledge about Dodd, and that he/Imus is prepared to use this if Dodd does not change his tune and openly back Joe-Inertia (CT for Lieberman).
    Why these nutwingers are so enraged by the outcome of a legitimate election is . . .
