MSNBC Banging That War Drum With Rep. Grayson

Rep. Grayson resists the media narrative on Syria.

It's really interesting to watch how committed the talking heads are to banging that war drum. I think they like war. They get to act serious and talk to generals -- all the advantages of playing war without the unpleasant bloody mess! Rep. Alan Grayson is one of the few Democrats with a clear enough perspective that he can't be coerced by media pressure:

Tension arose between Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) and MSNBC's Alex Witt on Sunday as Grayson declared, "It's simply not our responsibility" to intervene in Syria.The interview grew heated after the “Weekends with Alex Witt” host quoted Grayson as questioning the validity of a chemical attack in Syria. Grayson argued his statement was before "substantial evidence" had emerged, accusing Witt of "misquoting me and quoting me out of context."They also butted heads over whether or not France would back a military strikeagainst Syrian President Bashar Assad's government.

"Nobody wants this except the military-industrial complex," Grayson had previously stated on SiriusXM's "The Agenda with Ari Rabin-Havt" last Thursday.A HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted last Wednesday revealed that just 25 percent of Americans support air strikes to help Syrian rebels.
