MSNBC's new stable of political reporters

MSNBC has done a good job bringing them on screen during this election cycle. I really like all of them. Not one bad thing to say.

Hallie Jackson, Katy Tur, Kasie Hunt, Jacob Soboroff, Kristen Welker... I think they will all be big stars once this election is over.

Hopefully one of them can force Andrea "Compromised Old Bat" Mitchell into a very late retirement.

What do y'all think?

my baby Tamron Hall <3

by Anonymousreply 109/03/2016

Tamron Hall is annoying. She talks too fast, and she speaks over people. Same thing with Joy Reid. Except that Joy doesn't talk fast - she just talks over people.

Katy Tur is annoying. She never smiles, and she has a very bitchy attitude.

I often can't tell Katy Tur and Hallie Jackson apart, except that Hallie is the nicer one.

Kasie Hunt and Kristen Welker are the most pleasant of the ones mentioned. Kasie is very professional and businesslike. She doesn't act like a sex-in-the-city girl, trying to be a news reporter, like Katy Tur and Hallie Jackson. Same for Kristen.

Jacob Soboroff is okay, but he's annoying, in a hipster kind of way.

However, my favorite is Jacob Rascon. Just because he's cute.

Yes!!!! I have been thinking the same thing ever since they put her on the air after Morning Joe.

Where did she come from? She wasn't even on the network before that, and all of a sudden she gets a prime morning slot.

She is annoying as hell, and she reminds me of that ultra-irritating Kelly Ripa, whom I can't stand to ever watch. The minute she comes on, I switch to CNN.

Stephanie must be fucking somebody high up in the MSNBC ranks.

R5, apparently she comes from CNBC. I wish there was a msg board at MSNBC where I could tell them how I turn to CNN when Stephanie Ruhle comes on. She is a fucking embarrassment.

Stephanie Ruhle actually said to a guest during the conventions, "I don't know much about these things, tell me about it..."

Joy Reid is indeed a joy. And I will once again pledge allegiance to Lawrence McDonnel. I respect Rachel Maddow's smarts but she tries a bit too hard for the appearance of the Fox logo "fair and balanced" for me. You know what they need for a 2 month return? Keith Olberman. He at times was obnoxious as hell, but I was often ready to drop to my knees for his potentially skranky ol cock, just to thank him for being so blunt and not giving a fuck that he was overstepping journalistic boundaries that others tread too lightly around. Alas, it is very unlikely to happen.

Katy Tur used to date Olbermann. Her father was Robert Tur (now Zoey Tur), the L.A. based helicopter pilot who covered the riots in '92.

by Anonymousreply 2209/03/2016

I don't care for Steve Kornacki as a host or fill-in. He's not bad at breaking down numbers the numbers and polls (working with electoral maps, etc.), but as a host he's just so flat and seemingly disconnected. He only comes alive when he's referencing historical political data and anecdotes of past election cycles. I much prefer Chris Hayes, who's more engaging, warm and quick at correcting distorted facts or blatant untruths.

by Anonymousreply 2309/03/2016

Re: O'Donnell

He's a 1980s has-been trying to stay relevant. Right after the 2008 elections he made a pronouncement from On High: "My (top-level, super-insider) 'sources' say there will be NO health care bill this term!" How'd that work out again?

Kornacki is like his predecessor/mentor Todd. The further they get from electoral nuts and bolts, trying to be "journalists" the less it works out.

Now that the primaries and conventions are over, what exactly are they doing with Soboroff these days?

[quote] I love Joy Reid. She's the only one who won't allow shills to sit there and lie and distort.

She's smart and informed but her problem is that she wants to SHOW everyone how smart she is, but talking loud, talking often, and talking over people. It's so unnecessary. Your intelligence should speak for itself.

I also thought that Kasie Hunt was a lesbian, and I was totally shocked that she is engaged. She could very well be in the closet.

As for Kornacki, I gave him the benefit of the doubt, in wanting to support a fellow gay. But he is clearly in the tank for the Republicans. And no, he's not "right down the middle." His political leanings come through loud and clear in the way that he interviews his guests, and he's a gay Republican - no doubt about it. Therefore, I'm done with him.

Rachel Maddow is still the best thing ever to hit MSNBC. She covers the stories that no one else is covering, and she does it with such intelligence and credibility. For me, she's #1 on ANY network.

I also enjoy Morning Joe, if for nothing else than he's entertaining. He has meltdowns, he can be funny and at times charming. His guests are usually the best thing about the show. He can usually attract guests that no other hosts on MSNBC can get, and that alone is worth watching.

by Anonymousreply 3709/04/2016

Stephanie Ruhl is truly grating and needs to exit.

Joe Scarborough is a star, and NOT a racist, which is something as he is a FL panhandle Republican guy.

Kasie Hunt is a favorite, also she is wholesome girl next door looks and smart too.

Kornacki is okay, but clearly he doesn't have a life as he would be on every single moment if they would let him.

Kristen Welker is solid.

Andrea will be on forever, as she should be. She has the best Rolodex in Washington. (For those of us who know what a Rolodex is....)

Reid had to work pretty hard to stop Trump shill Urkel yesterday, who got downright sullen over the fact that he was challenged and talked over everyone else. I'll take her over Tweety and Toad who let them spin and pivot unchallenged.

Maddow I love when she's not a giggling fangirl. But she does sometimes take 20 minutes to tell a 2 minute story. O'Donnell is a smug asshole. I mostly like Hayes, but he's reminds me of an eager puppy. Kornacki is better as guest commentator. He's not particularly exciting for the whole hour.

I think Kornacki is delinquent in social skills, probably bores others to death. I'm not buying that he's a Republican cheerleader as much as he knows Trump has no viable path, so plays up the horse race aspect.

If Soboroff identifies as straight, I'll take him at his word ... difficult though that may be. There's another reporter for NBC (not MSNBC) who was on during the convention who makes Rascon seem fugly. I wanna say the name was something like Peter St. Alexander?

Mika has been "speaking up" more and more on Morning Joe, probably to "prove her worth," (name of her book). PLEASE do not renew her contract.

Katy Tur owes her career to Olbermann. She dumped him as soon as she was on sure footing with NBC. I like her.

She's randomly absent during some of his most important speeches (i.e. his Mexico appearance) and, if she's there, she reports from Trump Tower. She's a star though. She's one of my favorite "Road Warriors" next to Jacob Soboroff. She reminds me a lot of CNN's Michelle Kosinski.

I can't stand Kasie Hunt but like Kristen Welker. Kristen isn't a very good anchor. She's been filling in for MTP Daily lately and she's getting better but nothing to write home about.

Anyone watching Joy this morning? She totally went in on Boris, the Trump surrogate, who even called her a "Hillary surrogate." That Boris guy is the biggest D-bag supporting Trump. Right behind the poor South Carolina congressman surrogate as well. I agree she is a little "biased" and loud, but she is proving you have to be with all the trump people, who pivot and pivot and never give actual answers.

Kornacki is hot to me and even if he is republican-ish, I HIGHLY doubt he is a Trump supporter.

Kasie Hunt. No way is she not a lez.

I barely watch MSNBC but the few times I've seen Steve Kornacki he has definitely come across as a Republican shill. He certainly seemed to be a big cheerleader on Hillary conspiracy theories and always seems to suggest some dark, sinister motive for whatever Clinton isn't saying. Not a fan.

The few times I've seen Joy Reid, she's been great. I see her as the breakout star for this election season. She doesn't take crap when her guests out and out lie and she doesn't let them get away with it.

I try to like Rachel Maddow since I agree with her politics but I agree with the poster that says she takes 20 minutes to make a 1 minute point.

Love Maddow too and her wit and sarcasm. You really get an idea of her intelligence yet an ability to be "light." Now, no one is perfect, and I will say at times she has. Habit of beating a dead horse on a particular point, as if she thinks the viewer didn't get what she was saying the first or second time. And she can be a bit on the defensive when it comes to Feminism/SJWisms, but overall love her and never miss the show.

Say what you want about Chris Matthews, but he doesn't let people get away with talking BS and has a sense of humor as well. Only complaint, he can really interrupt people at times without letting them finish the answer to the very question he just asked.

Who's the other gay guy? Thomas Roberts? Very handsome and has a very proper Anchor-vibe, but doesn't come across as particularly innovative, clever or intellectual like some others.

by Anonymousreply 6909/10/2016

[quote]Only complaint, he can really interrupt people at times without letting them finish the answer to the very question he just asked.

I think part of it is Matthews knows what the rest of their answer is going to be and so (A) doesn't have the patience to wait for their equivocating response, (B) he's bored with the response and is already on the next question, or (C) he thinks the response is full of shit and begins repeating the question until a real answer is given.

For example, take his recent interview with Giuliani in which Giuliani said Trump stopped questioning Obama's citizenship two years ago. Or take the Trump interview several months ago when Matthews got Trump to acknowledge that women who have abortions should face punishment.

In other words, imagine how different that veteran's town hall would've been like earlier this week if Chris Matthews were there instead of Matt Lauer.

Joe S used to take part in election night coverage, but has not maybe since 08

by Anonymousreply 8209/19/2016

MSNBC would have put Joe on Presidential coverage back in 2008, but he and Olbermann (who was the star of the network back then) were at all-out war. They HATED each other, and probably would have gotten into a physical fight, had they been on the same set.

As it turned out, they put Joe in a separate studio to comment on the 2008 election, in a somewhat "reporting" capacity, while Olbermann, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, and Eugene Robinson anchored the broadcast. Chuck Todd was in the Steve Kornacki role, reporting on stats and demographics. My how things have changed, since then.

I really hate the fact that Brian Williams has not only taken over as the lead anchor on big political nights, but they also gave him his own damned show!! Motherfuckers.

Rachel brings in the biggest ratings, and yet she's relegated to the sidelines by this disgraced anchor, who was fired from his position because he was such a liar! If that isn't the old-boy fucking network at play, then I don't know what is. Brian Williams should be on cable access television right now.

I think that the best election night coverage team right now would be Rachel Maddow, Lawrence O'Donnell, Chris Matthews, and Chris Hayes. They are the smartest and most well-informed people on MSNBC right now. We need more intelligent coverage, and less "personalities."

by Anonymousreply 8309/19/2016

Agree, R83. Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell are top notch. Also, when Chris Matthews is on, he's ON (as in Trump and abortion, Giuliani and birtherism, etc.). I'll only add that in addition to being a liar, the Brian Williams 11th Hour show is pretty bad and adds nothing to the network. Hopefully it's temporary.

Joe S is a fucking joke and clearly, like most Rethugs, puts party above country. It's so obvious, with election day drawing closer each day, that he's now determined to cover Trump's ass at all costs like he did this morning when he (lamely) tried to make an excuse for Trump's "let's see what happens to her" comment in regards to Hillary. Everyone else at the table (even Mark Halperin) were telling him that that was unquestionably over the line, but of course Joe continued to try to push the bullshit lie that it wasn't that big a deal. "You all know how hard I came down on Trump for his second amendment folks comment," as if that excused the fact he was trying to basically defend him this time around for a remark many consider even more blatantly out of line. And the way he talks down to Mika when she dares to disagree with him is just disgusting. If I were her I'd slap the shit out of his bitch-ass right on national television.

I imagine it has to do with security concerns because Trump lunatics have threatened her at least once at a rally where she asked the tough questions about Trump inviting a foreign power to hack Hillary's e-mails. She had to be escorted to her car by the Secret Service. I think this is unprecedented. She and her camera person travel alone without any security and surely she's gotten more threats, likely more detailed, ugly, and personal. You know how Trump supporters don't like it when women stop being cute or sexy and become uppity. Fox darling Megyn Kelly got death threats after the "blood coming out of everywhere" comment. She went from a beloved conservative poster girl to a slut overnight.

Another interesting fact about Tur besides her father. Her mother, who is rarely mentioned, was the really brave in the Turs' reporting duo. She was the camera person hanging out the side of the helicopter getting all the riveting shots.

To those morons who still have a hard-on for that GOP shill Kornacki and no he still won't sleep with you: He jammed up that adorable Robbie AGAIN about why isn't HRC doing better. He NEVER asks Kellyanne any of this bullshit. He still over talks HRC surrogates while giving idiots like Epshteyn and Cortes a pass. Steve is so enamored of the GOP and you gave wonder why.

What's Kornacki's weird spit-slurping accent? Also why is he intoning or shouting like a soccer commentator?

Joy is fierce. She shuts down any Trumpster when they inevitably don't answer the question. They're lying robots whose only skill is to go on hourlong anti-HRC tirades. When she starts talking over them and doesn't let up, and she's a very fast talker, their eyes bug out from the effort to keep up. It's very gratifying.

Ok, so my one bone with MSNBC is that they don't have Weekend content. AM Joy is nice, but I need something Saturday and Sunday nights that isn't Dateline specials.

So, I did something -- For Fun, I just turned on FOX news to see what these nutcases are talking about. My god - this Judge Jeanine is a rancid piece of trash. She has 2 people on talking about the "Trump Tax" breaking story. A republican, and what I presume, is a democrat. The Republican is completely agreed with and the Liberal is the one that actually makes the most sense, and keeps getting shushed and talked against -- and this comes after they were talking about how the NYT were clearly biased and should be boycotted by the last guest on the show (The d-bag Trump econ advisor that was on Bill Maher this week).

What a great thread. I'm just discovering it now, after having watched MSNBC for over 5 hours every weekday all summer long. Never come across Ruhle, though. I guess she's on only in the early part of the day?

I tune in starting around 4pm for my boy Steve Kornacki. For those of you who think he's a Republican: he's very far left leaning, according to people who worked with him at I think he's just trying to come across as non-partisan, although I realize he sometimes give off the impression that he's being too hard on the Ds.

I love Kasie Hunt, agree she seems a little butch, but she's so likable. Jacob S is so adorable it hurts. Farenthold (though not an MSNBC employee) is also extremely hot, I'm guessing he's hung. I do agree Kornacki seems like an utter bore sexually (and he's a total dork/basic bro), but there is no part of his body I don't want to lick. I love his lopsided mouth when he speaks.

Joy Reid should be considered a hero.

Why do you guys hate Brian Williams so much? I'm late to that game. He's affable and liberal and reasonably handsome.

What was genius about it besides his tenacity was how he led The Trump Campaign right into the trap he'd set for them. When he stayed on the topic for days the surrogates started answering by saying it was old news and not pertinent! Mathews was ready by countering that it was extremely relevant and that by not apologizing Trump would always say (if he won) he'd replaced an infidel, a usurper, someone who was not legitimate, a fraud who'd stolen The Presidency.

Mathews loves and understands politics in a way that fascinates me. He loathes lightweights & liars. If you can't keep up or ahead, get out of the way!

I hate to agree about Steve Kornacki, but he did Trump's dirty work on Twitter by posting some things Bill Clinton has said in the past about women. Then he got defensive about posting the article when someone called him out. That really sucks. And no comment or anything about Trump or his vile words. Too bad. Sad!

He was on with equally nerdy but much more hot and definitely DEMOCRAT David Fahrenthold. He kept pushing back with the Bill Clinton nonsense. Fine ass David wasn't having ANY of the bullshit! "Bill Clinton is NOT running for President. He also wasn't on the bus with Donald Trump."

You wrote that about Steve Kornacki. Your post started with the assertion that he's not a Democrat, and then you said he loves Trump. Now you're saying you never called him a Trump supporter. What exactly did you MEAN to say, if not "he's a Trump supporter" when you wrote "He's NOT a Democrat" and "he loves Trump"? I guess your take on him is just far too nuanced for me to grasp.

That's great and all, but not ok when one side is so allergic to facts and will spit and spew ANYTHING.

People can call MSNBC the liberal FOX all they want, but its not true. They are the only ones out there keeping it fucking real as far as mainstream media...and even their Republican commentators keep it very real in regards to Trump and facts.

Tim Miller (who was Jeb Bush's communications director) is gay and out. He trolled Trump in the spin room at one of the GOP debates, which is cool.

TIM MILLER: We were running ads at the time about how Trump is an outsourcer, about how all the Trump goodies, the Trump umbrellas, Trump anything that you've ever had, Trump shirts, are all made overseas. And so I confronted him about that, and then he walked about two or three steps and, because Trump is a big watcher of daytime cable, he knew who I was, which kind of surprised me actually.


TIM MILLER: And so he turned around and started shouting at me, "Oh, you did a great job with Jeb." And I was shouting at him, "Oh, you did a great job with Trump Steaks," and, you know, we kind of had a back-and-forth shouting encounter there for a little while.

Katie Hunt is a good Jr DC beat reporter. Hopefully, she is not afraid of taking down the intelligence community or republicans, beyond trump. I think MSNBC need some experienced and fearless journalists, given what is happening.

Stephanie Ruhl has to be fired now. She is terrible and clearly stupid.

Kick Brain William and Nicole Wallace to the curb. I think they need republicans on the air, to get Republicans on the network though.

Another sign that he isn't conservative: he has a healthy sense of humor. He loves The Simpsons and can recite his favorite scenes. Conservatives DO NOT have a smart humor about them. They are unfunny, grim assholes who only chuckle at the lamest jokes, if at all. Everyone knows this.

Is it just me, or does Hallie Jackson seem like she can be a real bitch behind the scenes.

And I always find it strange that MSNBC has two reporters covering the White House press briefings at the same time. It's Hallie and Kristen Welker.

What's weird about it is that Hallie is always standing up at the front of the briefing room looking like she's ready for an on-air interview.

But then Katy Tur will usually go to Kristen Welker, and start talking to her, while Hallie is in the background doing nothing. Is that on purpose, or are they icing out Hallie?

Kristen must not be as high up on the food chain as Hallie, because Kristen is usually in the middle of the room, while Hallie is always up front. And yet the morning shows always go to Kristen, and not Hallie.

It's funny because the MSNBC cameras are all the way at the back of the press briefing room, and they catch both Welker on the far left looking sideways at the camera, and then Hallie Jackson facing straight on, from the front of the stage.

While Kristen is busy on-air, Hallie is usually standing at the front doing nothing, and usually texting on her phone. Sometimes, she's standing next to John Roberts from FOX, and Major Garrett.

What's bizarre is that Hallie seems to not want to leave her spot, for fear of someone taking her place at the front of the stage. So even though she's not doing a thing, she's still acting important as if she's the HBIC.

i cancelled my cable subscription to MSNBC yesterday.

Between the lovesick sweeties Mika and Joe, and listening to the same old same old Trump drivel (not a Trump fan by the way) out of Maddow, Matthews et al and the bellyaching about the endless bickering over health care (or lack thereof), I just cancelled MSNBC outright.

r498 here. The MSNBC was part of a bundle which Included CNBC, FOX and CNN. I still get NBC, CBC and ABC.

But I cut off MSNBC, FOX and CNBC but I kept CNN.

CNN is now a standalone - a personal pick.

I never listened to FOX and MSNBC folks just rag on about the same old drivel.

I can get access to BBC and if I really want, MSNBC for free.

I'm really starting to like Velshi & Ruhle. I usually have the volume turned way down until a story of interest comes on, so it was their visuals that first caught my attention. Besides Maddow, I don't think I've seen two more animated anchors. They really get into the material. Stephanie just a few minutes ago emphatically went on about 25% of Americans owning 92%. Just watching their reactions to Trump's transcripts with Nieto and Turnbull "I'm not going out on a date with you, Ali, unless you promise to pay!"

by Anonymousreply 51608/03/2017

Stephanie is funny and GORGEOUS, in my opinion. Yes, she doesn't back down from Chris or anyone else who interrupts.

Melber is indeed a bore but he was particularly vicious yesterday with a Trump surrogate who was on to promote the idea of the new English-only immigration plan.

Andrea Mitchell is absolutely fine. The stories of her decline have been greatly exaggerated.

Brian Williams is hilarious. I know people think he just makes "dad jokes" but to me they sound like dry wit. He always has great guests on—Jeremy BASH? Hello! Fucking hot—and often gets to report on late-breaking news stories. I love the 11:00 hour.

There was a weirdly interesting few minutes this morning on Morning Joe that started with a reference to Nixon and Joe saying something like "we need to get Pat Buchanan back here, right, Willie?" And then they came back from a break and Joe asked Willie about his favorite Buchanan lines from the old days, and they traded some. About Nixon: "Joe, I told the old man to burn the tapes, and he should have done it!" PJB was a great storyteller and as much as I disagreed with most of what he said on those shows, he was entertaining.

Buchanan was a McGloughlin Group panelist on PBS, a Crossfire host on CNN, and later a frequent MSNBC analyst and regular panelist on Joe's show. But his thinly-veiled anti-semitism and troglodyte warnings of the end of white America eventually got him booted from MSNBC. And I would guess the chances of his coming back are about zero.

All I could think was that maybe Pat is not doing well, health-wise, and this was a little love letter on live tv to an old cranky but loyal friend?

I've ditched Ari Melber and added Nicolle Wallace to my watch list (on the days I can bear to turn on the news). Ari has a dopey way of speaking that annoys me. I'm beginning to think Lawrence O'Donnell is a little on the dumb side too - several mispronunciations and confused speculations - and I used to think he was great. There's just so much you have to pick and choose.

Chris Hayes is very smart but his mania wears me out. And Lord help me, but I've developed a taste for that schmoozer Brian Williams and his slick way of presenting. Why hasn't Joy Reid got a regular primetime show dammit?

I was thinking the other day how cool it would be for MSNBC to give Dan Rather a show. Even at his advanced age, I think that he could handle it and would make a great addition to the lineup. Not to mention his being there would make Rethugs' heads explode, which would be a definite plus.

R12, I admire and appreciate Rather, too. I think a better fit might be to make him a "senior commentator" on NPR (where he could literally phone it in, as others have including the great Daniel Schorr and sportscaster Red Barber have done) or on MSNBC or CNN where he would appear now and then and join live coverage of big events.

I'm glad MSNBC keeps Alex Witt on weekend duty. She's been a trouper for them for so many years, and I like her polite but tough old-school anchor style.
