Newsbusters’ Kyle Drennen tells us:

Newsweek editor Evan Thomas brought adulation over President Obama’s Cairo speech to a whole new level on Friday, declaring on MSNBC: “I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.”

Thomas, appearing on Hardball with Chris Matthews, was reacting to a preceding monologue in which Matthews praised Obama’s speech: “I think the President’s speech yesterday was the reason we Americans elected him. It was grand. It was positive. Hopeful…But what I liked about the President’s speech in Cairo was that it showed a complete humility…The question now is whether the President we elected and spoke for us so grandly yesterday can carry out the great vision he gave us and to the world.”

He’s got vid of the event, too.

Is there something in the HVAC over there, that brings these kind of drooling comments out?

Or is it just that GE, and thereby MSNBC is a wholly owned subsidiary of the executive branch of the Federal government?

Go ahead.  Tell me again about how the press is not left wing extremist.
