It's been nearly 10 years since Tim Russert died--why can't they find a decent replacement yet? Chuck Todd is unwatchable. This man belongs far away from cameras and microphones. He's such an idiot who thinks he's the smartest guy in the room.

If you're in the mood for an alcohol-induced coma, take a sip every time he begins a sentence with "Look!"

He's so awful. Why can't some obscure network that I never watch hire him away? That seems to happen to my favorites so why can't it happen to this skin rash?

Hans whatshisname is not a looker but he is a very good Capitol Hill reporter. Windbag Kelly O'Donnell won't shut up she drags her reports and repeats herself to hog air time. I like Kristen Welker but she is entering that territory sometimes.

Nicole Wallace's show is MTP but it's miles and miles above Chuck Todd's version, She has fantastic guests and beats Todd's show for opinion and scoops because she airs before him.

Kelly O'Donnell kind of creeps me out. The way she makes a point of blocking so that she's standing to the right and cocking (sorry) her head to the left. It's such a pretentious pose. Used to think her ponderous reporting was trying to make sense out of/explain all the awful stuff Trumps doing; now it sounds like she's a shill for him and makes his statements and actions seem more 'professional' than they are.

Love Rachel and Joy, dislike Matthews.

Brian Williams is especially galling. His stilted, robotic delivery is apparently MSNBC's idea of what an authoritarian TV anchor should sound like. They've doubled down on that with a bizarre military-style-music show intro that makes me want to hide in a bunker. Image rehabilitation at its worst.

by Anonymousreply 3309/02/2017

I appreciate Rachel's reporting very much. I revile Rachel's melodramatic delivery very much. I hate to say that I can't stand to watch her. She is better when she has someone to talk to, but her monologues are really exhausting to me. Too. Much. Drama.

Also can't stand Cuomo's blowhardedness.

by Anonymousreply 3609/02/2017

I know I am in the minority here but Joy Reid is just pretty much unwatchable for an hour, and I tried as she subbed for Rachel last night but she couldn't read a teleprompter worth a damn. I don't mind her when she is a panelist but she just can't carry an hour show.

Chris Matthews is also unwatchable, he has a habit of asking a question, when the person he asks starts to answer he begins talking again, expanding on the question. The man is in love with the sound of his own voice.

Hate Hugh Hewitt with a passion and refuse to watch his shit show.

Love Rachel, Lawrence, Ari, Ali, Hallie, Jason, Thomas, Louis, Louie, Craig, Chuck, Brian, Katy, Kasie, Nicolle, Andrea, Richard Engel and Ayman

Don't care for Joe and Mika, Stephanie, Chris Hayes who isn't even listed as working for MSNBC on their talent bios page and those listed about that I consider unwatchable.

Joy managed to keep Rachel's show highly rated while she sat in for her during vacation. But Joy doesn't not shine with Rachel's format, it's too talky. Joy likes to have point/counterpoint and she thrives on the interaction with others. That is why she's such a good panelist on other shows. I love her weekend show and it's nice that she has a diverse set of voices on her show.

R43 You nailed it for me. Thanks.

by Anonymousreply 4409/02/2017

R38 I dislike Chuck Todd for a specific reason that probably would make many roll their eyes. He likens everything to team sports. It may seem superficial to be bothered by that, but to me it's a major problem. Political analysts and commentators see politics as a "my team versus their team" sport, ignoring real-world consequences for the country at large. Joe Scarborough is the same: he says "the only thing that matters is winning." That's true when a candidate is trying to win a campaign. It's false and irresponsible when it comes to governing, and it is what is wrong with our country today. Everyone is divided--your team versus my team--and even for people who are capable of thinking outside the confines of pure partisanship, the issues are so clearly defined as either "good" or "bad" if you associate with the left or the right that our whole country thinks of politics as nothing more than a sport. It's not. There are consequnces and there should be nuance in analyzing and discussing current events.

by Anonymousreply 4509/02/2017

Totally agree, R45. I notice Trump voters seem to think of politics as a football game. They just like to egg on the other side. "We won, get over it!" etc. Fucking morons. I have noticed Todd and Scarborough talking like you described. It's really unfortunate to say the least.

I too saw Joy struggling with the TelePrompTer last night. Oy, Joy. She's definitely better as a panelist.

I do however love when Kornacki subs for Matthews.

I agree completely with this:

[quote]How funny: Kelly O seems like the most innocuous, just-the-facts, objective reporter on TV. I never noticed anything annoying or biased about her.

...but I still LOL'd at this:

[quote]I guess she saw a huge, Candy Crowley shaped hole in the market and decided to go for it.

She is really great and absolutely does not try to make a Trump sound any better than he is. She's a White House correspondent like Kristen Welker is. They're not going to go all Nicolle Wallace on camera when they're broadcasting from the WH property. It might be part of the job description: Thou shalt not cause MSNBC to lose its press credentials at the White House.

by Anonymousreply 4609/02/2017

R46 Unfortunately, people on the left are doing the same thing now. It's teams, not thinking. That's part of the political backlash and polarizing effect now. I said something on Twitter that dissented slightly from one point someone made and that person retweeted me and rallied others to goad me to admit I'm a Trump supporter and an alt-right person...which I very decidedly am not. But it really doesn't matter at this point. You're either "with us" on every single point or you're perceived as the enemy. It's really fucking scary. Unthinking mobs are dangerous.

Unfortunately for all of us, Republicans have all applied a team sports/winners vs. losers approach for decades -- and it works! Democrats are concerned with improving lives while Republicans gerrymander and spend money on attack ads. And they keep winning elections.

Nicolle Wallace is great.

They should give her Meet the Press. (Which her 4pm show is, basically, every day).

by Anonymousreply 6409/03/2017

I know a lot of you don't like Chris Matthews all that much, but I have always enjoyed his show. He has actually worked in politics and the newspaper business, and in his prime, including his time as a panelist on the great McGoughlin Group program, he could cut to the chase and get to the heart of the matter. Often he still does.

He also has always had Ron Reagan as a guest periodically to bash republicans as only the liberal son of a conservative "Saint" can do.

If they're grooming Kornacki to take over that 7 pm slot when Matthews retires, I see it as a mistake. Steve is good as a nerdy, wonky panelist and fill-in host. But I wouldn't make a habit of watching him every evening, for sure.

As a non military person, I've learned a lot from Malcolm Nance, Jeremy Bash and Clapper.

I do like Brian Wm's guests and think his energy is better suited for an earlier time. Maybe Brian Wm's and Chris Hayes should swap.

"Shortly after" is a term open to debate R54, was it the following week or month no, but the host of Meet The Press doesn't change often. Ifill died of breast and endometrial cancer, that isn't something that you get and die the next month, while she had kept her illness quiet, clearly it was something she had been dealing with for a while.

I was not putting Ifill down, I thought she was awesome and was a regular viewer of her show, but considering her illness and eventual death I was just saying not selecting her was not a mistake. Who knows she might have been offered the job and turned it down, but this is a huge position at NBC and normally the promotion goes to someone 'in house". If healthy she would have been great at MTP, but not giving it to her was not a mistake, IMHO. Now Joe Scarborough hosting MTP would have been a mistake, a huge mistake.

Currently it's Brian Williams, who I kind of like, but the real star of MSNBC today might be their regular morning meteorologist, Bill Karins (sp?). He's part of weekday early mornings from 5 a.m., when sadly I am often awake and getting ready for work travel.

Katy Tur was a behind-the-scenes producer at KTLA in Los Angeles before she hooked up with Keith Olbermann, who was, at the time, MSNBC's top anchor. Katy used Keith's agent and then landed her own MSNBC gig. She'd split with Olbermann before he was fired but then took up with a NBC Exec who got her a prime job as a foreign correspondent in London which put her far away from her troubled relationship with her father who was in the process of transitioning. Then they assigned her to Trump, having no idea, he'd end up being the GOP nominee, let alone prez. She rode that gig straight to her own regular slot on-air at MSNBC. Breasts are fake but true that she has no problem using her body as a means to get a better job. Fun fact-her father used to work with Olbermann when he was a LA sports anchor so Olbermann literally watched her grow up.

I think O'Donnell is a major diva. I think maybe he is not so well liked by some of his coworkers, like Maddow. Whenever she hands off to him, she seems a bit icy, like she hates having to talk to him. He tries to be funny, she fake-laughs, and we the audience cringe until it's over.

I don't think he's a completely unhinged psychopath like O'Reilly, but I don't think every show host at MSNBC would behave like they're about to go postal on the crew like he does in the leaked footage. I can't imagine Rachel doing that, or Nicole, or Joy, or Brian... Lawrence just takes himself very seriously and is very smug (yes HE is smug, Rachel is not), so it wasn't surprising to see his outburst.

They do the same thing with Ali Velshi. I think it's because they don't have enough bodies. The network is woefully understaffed. They need someone to fill in when people like Rachel or Lawrence are off, and nearly all of their on-air personalities already have their own shows. So they have no choice but to force some of the hosts to do double duty. It's not like they have a "B team" of "anchors in the waiting."

Lawrence O'Donnell does a pretty good show, but I could always see he was a psychopath. When the Boston Marathon Bomber story was hot, he chose to adopt a thick shitty South Boston accent to give himself street cred! It was insanity of course, because then he was STUCK with it, and had to wean himself off of it like Klonopin over a period of months!

When I heard he was a nasty jerk off-camera to the crew I wasn't surprised. He loves skewering Bill O'Reilly when of course they are just two huge Irish, self-important, pains in the ASS!

I used to like Lawrence O'Donnell but little things started putting me off - like the cringeworthy needy way he acts during the switchoever from Rachel's show, and I started noticing he'd mispronounce things you shouldn't if you really pay attention to the news and are intelligent (I can't remember any of them but one: he pronounced Sergei as sayer-jay) -- also he'd jump to stupid conclusions and sometimes be set right by guests - little things like that -- and I just lost respect for him. When you have a dvr and can record shows, there are too many to watch per day anyway, so I just dropped him. Nicole, two Chrisses, Rachel, Brian, and an occasional drop-in for Anderson -- it's more than enough.

Rubin pens sometimes authors 2 OpEds a day in WaPo excoriating Trump & the GOP. I like ODonnell, Katy Turr.

Any show with Joan Walsh for her feminist perspective and Malcom Nance for his intrigue and spot ON take downs, Julia Iosoff is the best Russia expert on television.

I also cannot stomach Maddow’s drama- still some of her reporting is downright brilliant - it is obvious she has the best staff, and the press favors releasing info during her very popular hour.

I have a 2 generation family loyalty to watching Chris Matthews - though he is a HORRIBLE interrupter, I hope his guests are paid better than scale - he is incredibly rude to them - but his heart and LOVE of politics is fantastic. Matthews takedown of a berner in ‘16 was an instant classic - brilliant. The twit was trashing the Dems & CM says - “uhh well I dont know, I have always thought Dems were pretty powerful and did remarkable things for Americans. You know: Roosevelt creating WPA programs, Social Security, affordable federally insured 30yr mortgages, Civil rights voting act, Medicare, Social Security, ACA, “ the list went on. The Bernie stooge gulped and that was the end of the conversation.

This MSNBC show and its host are pure us-versus-them propaganda. This is not a news program in any way; it is an even more histrionic left-wing version of what is found on Fox News. The pundits are taking turns saying shit about Trump, some of it juvenile, and the host, Stephanie Ruhle, is displaying zero qualities of a journalist. She laughs every time someone mocks Trump, eggs them on, Amens! them when they stray from legit news to take jabs at Trump and generally is ignoring legitimate news in favor of bullshit—just like Fox does. It’s sickening to me. I detest Trump. I believe he is the greatest existential danger our country has ever seen. That doesn’t justify news organizations and journalists behaving like him. It’s not even about “going high” when he goes low; it’s about journalistic ethics and decency. I am really disappointed in the state of journalism today. I realize MSNBC viewers eat this up as much as Fox viewers eat up Hannity, but if Trump calls this “fake news,” I have to agree with him and that makes me sick.

R365 It’s not the lies; it’s the focus and the attitude with which information is delivered, positioned and discussed. I am super liberal, but you or someone else here already has told me to “stick to Fox News” simply because I dislike the strong bias and the editorialization of news on MSNBC. And therein lies the propagandizing: Everything—absolutely everything, even child sexual abuse—has become us-versus-them political rhetoric. A man who has been accused of raping 14 year old children should be investigated and held accoutable; what matters most is the safety of kids. It shouldn’t be presented with grins and chuckling and condemnation of half the country’s morality. That’s not journalism; it’s political strategizing and spin. That should take place in campaign offices and not in front of cameras. Everytime an act of mass violence is carried out, it immediately becomes a point of obsessive, gorey entertainment on cable news. It’s about revealing every gruesome detail of every murder, with title cards and theme music that are used for days or weeks. They are branded. MSNBC and CNN are as complicit in this as Fox News is. It’s exploitative. This is what bothers me. Nothing is about actual information delivery for the sake of public interest and public welfare; it’s for ratings, and it’s mostly produced to galvinize already set opinions with fear and rage.

You disagree with me. I get it. The majority of American people who have any awareness at all of current events or politics follow orders and fee exactly how they are told to feel on television. They are duely imprinted. Even asking questions, I have learned, gets a person deemed a communist/witch/Fox News or CNN adherent, depending on what side you’re talking to.

They’re making people angrier and more clannish, which I believe makes people more volatile and more likely to snap at one another. We don’t need that in this country. We need people to realize that the US is one country and we are all in this together, make it or break it. Do you hear anyone in the media sending out that message?

I am so sick of the false equivalency trolling saying "MSNBC is just the same as Fox News."

It is just not true, and hasn't ever been true. If anything, MSNBC bends over backwards to be "objective" and protect the NBC News brand, and could go even harder against establishment and republican views, especially before 7 pm when the real opinionated hosts, always fact-based, take the stage.

It really is a false equivalence to say MSNBC is just like Fox, as our aghast friend above has suggested. I'm sorry, but MSNBC has made me smarter, or at least better informed. They DO NOT LIE. They have a liberal angle, but they report facts. And I have learned a lot about current politics and history from watching their shows.

Yes, Stephanie isn't the most polished or professional or non-partisan. But have you seen any of the other two dozen+ people we've discussed in this thread?

I watch MSNBC every single day (for several hours, if possible), and it has been quite misrepresented by R366. It's leagues above CNN, for instance. I can't watch CNN—its as shitty as everyone says. Half of their panel discussion shows are like episodes of Jerry Springer.

KO’s comments sounded like he was being forced to say them. Non disclosure agreement? Who has the leverage to not only get him fired, but to make him swear he’s out of politics permanently? That’s overkill.

Someone also mentioned that KO mentioned a big story about sexual harrassment would be coming soon, a few days ago and it never did come out.

Nicolle Wallace has been batting it out of the park lately. It's so interesting to see the vestiges of the decent GOP on MSNBC. Wallace, Steve Schmidt, John Poderhetz, Bill Kristol, Rick Wilson and many I'm forgetting redefining their own party. Last week Wallace described herself as a "non-practicing" Republican. She and Schmidt both provided Amicus briefs when Prop. 8 came before the Supreme Court. They are like a throwback to the GOP pre-Reagan. I think they're finally understanding how the radical right infiltrated and decimated a political party that was previously sane. I hope these folks have a foothold to create a new GOP that can govern collectively with Democrats. For fucks sake, even John Boehner knew this and left out of disgust.

Both soon realized what a disaster she was, but it was too late to do anything about it. Proof that even smart people can make serious errors of judgement.

I do prefer it when Rachel sticks with exposing the Trump administration's constant lies. But I saw the Guthrie/Kotb segment announcing Lauer's firing and just about hurled from their deceipt. They actually held hands, like you do when an unexpected, sudden death happens to a family member. Yeah, right.

No way they were shocked and surprised, no way they didn't know Lauer's reputation. No way in hell, and Rachel said herself that her team would be investigating the House of NBC. I'm so sick and tired of being lied to that I welcome it. Just keep it brief and to the point because there's far more bigger fish to fry.

This makes NBC's rejection of Ronan Farrow's initial piece about Weinstien all the more interesting. Variety's story went back about two months coinciding with the time Farrow's story got published in the New Yorker. NBC gets a complaint on Monday about Lauer's predatory behavior, MONDAY, and summarily fires him. Ah, man. The brass are shitting themselves.

I watched Katy Tur yesterday on Nicolle Wallace's show. She was trying to be restrained, but was quite emotional. Supposedly, Lauer's relationships were "consensual," but the great power differential casts that into doubt. Of course, we all know that the 30+ years older Keith Olbermann had a a live-in relationship with Tur when he was prominent at MSNBC and she was a very young reporter. Watching her commentary was very, very weird. How conflicted could she feel as she was going on about Lauer's over-extension of his powers?

It was sad watching MSNBC last night. They were the last to call the race for Doug Jones and Steve Kornacki had to make time and pretend that Roy Moore could still win. And speaking of, I noticed Steve Kornacki wearing khakis and a light blue shirt last night. This morning he was wearing khakis and a light blue shirt. I think that's like his uniform, right?

I've started watching Morning Joe again, after an absence of a few years. Back then, I didn't understand the Mika hate. I liked her.

Now I get it. She is grating, vapid, adds nothing to the proceedings. Absolutely nothing.

Hate the tiny new set too. It looks like they broadcast from a corner of the janitor's closet now. Also, the entire format of the show is a 5-to-6-person panel, so I don't understand why they've crammed everyone behind a two-person desk.

I can't tell if you're being serious or facetious, but...

Reports are that Hall (whose star at Today was on the rise) left because they were bringing in Megyn Kelly to take a whole hour, the hour where Tamron was becoming a star. As for keeping Mitchell and Reid: both are smart and talented, and Andrea has been a great reporter with the best contacts in the business for about 40 years.

If you want a network that promotes "hotness" over intelligence, at least on the female side, go with Fox News.

Rachel is doing something I just love. She's got a panel of all lawyers/prosecutors and is asking a bunch of questions to clear up facets of the investigations and pardons, etc. She's so good at it and the lawyers are excellent at making their points. Informative, entertaining, everything I like.

[quote] I don’t think I’ve hated anything as much as Lawrence O’Donnell hates Trump. LOL

You're not kidding. One of the highlight this year for me was O'Donnell's show about Tillerson calling Trump a "moron". Which was anecdotal but he knew it's the kind of crap that Trump must lose his shit over. The gleeful way O'Donnell kept repeating the word MO-RON was absolutely hilarious. And then the next night the show was about how Tillerson may actually have called Trump "A Fucking Moron" and how that was important. This is some of the times O'Donnell made me laugh out loud this year and God knows I need that. I love him.

And Maddow too of course. She had a show where she theatrically read out loud a threatening letter from Trump's personal lawyer to whomever, bringing out the grotesque of it and it was fucking hilarious.

These shows I actually downloaded to keep cause that's what I want to take away from this horrible administration. Great shows goofing on those people.

Stephanie Ruhle was kinda weak today. She really let Jill Stein off the hook and even let Jill spew some bs. I can't say it enough, I absolutely loathe Stein and the asshole had the nerve to say that she wasn't sure what role she will take in the future when Stephanie asked if she still wants to be president. So, no doubt she'll be back to screw us again in 2020. Stein also mentioned that we needed to focus on students drowning in student debt and helping the middle class. I was pissed that Stephanie didn't interject, you mean the things that Hillary wanted to do!

Beschloss isn't as handsome and charming as Meechum and Brinkley, but often has far more interesting fun facts.

For example, in his last appearance on Rachel, Rachel was doing a story on the EPA and how corrupt Scott Pruitt is and how he assigned a high-paying , important EPA job to a completely unqualified banker-buddy of his most because he owes the guy a shitload of money. She discussed all the improprieties currently taking place. She asked Beschloss if there was a precedence, and he mentioned the last time was under the Reagan administration - a woman named Anne Gorsuch - mother of Neil!
