Former MSNBC pundit and current radio host and NY Post columnist is mentioned in old MSNBC threads but as a datalounge favorite, I thought he deserves his own thread.
He's almost a regular Ari Shapiro with his foodie and travel posts, but I've got more in common Josh-he seems more down to earth.
Any idea on his height? Do we like his beard or prefer him beardless?

I think he still does show up on MSNBC now and then. Josh looks great with or without a beard.

Who’s the top in their relationship?

Social media is fake and stupid. Who needs to know every thought you ever had. Every interaction. Every move, documented and “shared.”

R3 He's pretty hairy and does look Italian. He's an atheist but has mentioned some Jewish heritage. Maybe an Italian/Jewish Mix.
R1 I like the beard, but it looks somewhat spotty on the sides. Is he chest hairy or is he only moderately hairy?
|by Anonymous||reply 5||05/14/2020|
His husband has big dick face R2, but I'm guessing Josh is the top as he is pretty dominant in interviews and his writing. Josh swaggers but I'm guessing a smaller cock size, probably cut.

His husband is definitely more of a little spoon.

R6 I don't know, it looks like he's packing heat here and rocking a hairy chest.

Unflattering OP pic (of both of them). But his husband is not hot enough for him.
|by Anonymous||reply 11||05/14/2020|
He used to be fat and he actually looked alright as a fatty. But he is so much hotter as a fit guy. And he's not a Bernie Bro. I'd do him.

He's okay, except he needs to understand the fundamental issue of our time: too many rich assholes controlling too many governments.
other than that, I really don't dislike him.
But he really needs to get that.

also, every conservative needs to be thrown out of every political office. other than that, no problem with conservatives like Josh Barro.
|by Anonymous||reply 14||05/14/2020|
Agree, R11. He is a lot hotter than the husband. Also believe Josh is the top.
|by Anonymous||reply 15||05/14/2020|
How come Barro is not on MSNBC more often? It was never a lot, but it was periodic. Now it's rare.
|by Anonymous||reply 16||05/14/2020|
He used to be a Republican/conservative but isn't anymore because he's gay and not a lunatic.
I still give pundits like him the side eye--its great that they're not in the Trump camp, but what are their thoughts on say, privatizing the post office or social security?
|by Anonymous||reply 17||05/14/2020|
not sure he quite gets it though r17. he's not nuts and he doesn't love Trump, but does he get what complete shit the entire Conservative Movement has been for about 50 years?
|by Anonymous||reply 18||05/14/2020|
Does he look like that gay reporter who was covering the murderous Canadian twinks? Do all gay reporters look alike?

Can't believe no one has mentioned his father- the famous (or infamous) Robert Barro who was a prominent figure in shifting academic economic theory away from the post-war Keynesian consensus and writes really obnoxious editorials in the WSJ denouncing the very idea of using federal fiscal policy to offset downturns in the business cycle (he was particularly nasty towards Obama in 2008-2009). He was also one of the first academic economists to make a fortune in the private sector in consulting, which is now commonplace but at the time was very controversial. Josh is the youngest of 4 kids and worked in investment banking for a few years before transitioning to journalism. He was once a vocal defender of his fathers economic views but has moved slightly to center/center-left over the last few years. I think Trump finally made him officially change his voter registration to democrat in 2016 and he has been a fierce critic ever since...

he has terrible breath, that's all I'm going to say
|by Anonymous||reply 21||05/14/2020|
He used to be pretty horrible and then came to see the light that Republicans and even Libertarians are evil.
He’s better now but every once in a while his selfish privileged side comes out and has a really wrong take on something. It’s like, “oh, yeah, I forgot you were a dick. Thanks for reminding me”
I follow him on Twitter and have mutual friends.

R20 Do you think he's wealthy from his parents and also possibly his first investment banking job?

He definitely seems to have disappeared from MSNBC entirely (even before COVID). For quite awhile, he was a pundit on numerous shows and they even had him guest hosting a few times as a fill in for one of the absent political anchors. I wonder if there's a contractual conflict that now prevents him from appearing or if he has fallen out of favor with the network brass?
|by Anonymous||reply 38||05/18/2020|
R38 Maybe his shit breath became a hazard.
|by Anonymous||reply 39||05/18/2020|
r38 Didn't he get a promotion at Business Insiders from a columnist to an editor? They may prohibit moonlighting on cable TV but political writers often appear on MSNBC, FOX, etc. to promote their print work so who knows. You would think he would be in demand as never trumpers like Bill Kristol, Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson, etc. are on panels all the time - moderate republicans are an endangered species. Hell they even have Nicole Wallace a show and she and Schmidt were responsible for unleashing proto-trump Palin on us. Kristol may come across as affable and amiable now but he still is a war mongering prick...I don't think Josh is a republican anymore and he never was really all that conservative so I don't know where he fits in our current political firmament - he isn't a corporate hack like the Third Way types and he definitely isn't a wannabee socialist like the Berners.

Are you sure it's Josh Barro you're talking about? He's written articles on why "elites are elite for a reason." He is extremely pleased with himself. It doesn't bother me overmuch because he actually does have some good commentary but modest he is not
