I'm sure that the first state to announce that Biden won which puts him over 270 will be getting their police force together to warn them before making that announcement. That state seals the deal for Biden and will stir up the angry Trumpsters. There will be uprising in many places, but if I lived in Nevada or Pennsylvania or Georgia, I'd be worried about what would happen if my state was the one to call the election.

[quote] MSNBC's election guru Steve Kornacki has moved on to analyzing Thanksgiving

MSNBC's election week chartthrob Steve Kornacki has undoubtedly been going through big board withdrawal ever since Joe Biden was declared the president-elect on Saturday. The nice people at Today, though, decided to throw him a bone — or perhaps more aptly, a turkey drumstick — and asked him to analyze a map of national Thanksgiving trends on the show Tuesday.

You could practically see the lights turn back on in Kornacki's eyes. "This is going to be such a fun break for me, I'm so used to doing this electoral map," he said, flipping over to a map that broke down the most popular Thanksgiving side dishes by state.

Kornacki proceeded to walk through the Today show hosts' home states, noting that many belonged to "stuffing country" in the northeast. Craig Melvin cut in, though, with the million dollar question: "Steve, can you get us to 270 using the Thanksgiving map?"

"This is an election that would be going to the House of Representatives," Kornacki quipped, before thoughtfully adding that "mashed potatoes get California. That's a lot of electoral votes…"

With just 16 days until Thanksgiving, @stevekornacki returns to the big board to break down the most popular sides dishes in every state.

A former journalist-turned-presidential historian is no longer a paid MSNBC contributor following his failure to disclose his role in crafting the former vice president's campaign speeches.

Presidential historian Jon Meacham appeared twice on MSNBC Saturday to address Joe Biden’s victory speech in Delaware. On both occasions, the former Newsweek editor, who worked specifically on the former vice president’s Delaware speech, failed to disclose his role in shaping the address.

Dan Goldman left when hired by House Democrats during impeachment proceedings. Mimi Rocah left when she ran for Westchester County DA. At one point, even odious Newt left Fox to consult for Trump.

[quote] MSNBC Cuts Loose Two More Contributors With Biden Transition Ties

MSNBC is shedding more contributors as numerous on-air figures join President-elect Joe Biden’s transition efforts.

On Tuesday, an MSNBC spokesperson confirmed that Barbara McQuade and Richard Stengel will no longer be paid contributors after both were announced as part of Biden’s agency review teams, which will help prepare the incoming administration to work with existing agencies. McQuade, a legal analyst for MSNBC/NBC News and University of Michigan Law School professor (and occasional Daily Beast contributor), was listed as a member of the president-elect’s Department of Justice Review team; Stengel, an MSNBC political analyst, was listed on the Biden review team for the United States Agency for Global Media.

MSNBC cutting ties with the two paid contributors comes just one day after the network cut loose several other contributors that have worked with Biden’s campaign or transition efforts.

Following a New York Times report that historian Jon Meacham had assisted the president-elect’s team with speechwriting—a fact he did not disclose on-air even while commentating on Biden’s victory speech—the network ended paid-contributor deals with him and Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, an MSNBC medical expert who was appointed to Biden’s coronavirus task force this week.

According to a network insider, both Meacham and Emanuel are still permitted to appear on the network as guests with proper disclosures of their Biden ties, but could no longer be paid contributors while working with the president-elect’s team.

NBC News and MSNBC do not allow their on-air contributors to endorse or run for office while appearing as a paid analyst on the network. According to the Washington Post, NBC News does not allow staff to work for a political campaign or political action committee while being paid by the network.

While many networks have similar rules, others often allow their personalities to engage in informal political activities on behalf of campaigns that seem to push the boundaries of traditional mainstream journalistic ethics.

And, in some cases, the lines have been blurred even further. For example, Fox News hosts like Sean Hannity and Jeanine Pirro have appeared on-stage at rallies with President Donald Trump, while other Fox stars have routinely made paid speaking appearances at Republican Party events and fundraisers. And on CNN, paid contributor Ana Navarro hosted a fundraiser for Biden this year, while Van Jones has acted as an informal advisor to the Trump White House on criminal-justice reform matters.

Velshi was married briefly in his twenties. In 2009, he married his second wife, New York-born hedge fund manager Lori Wachs, the president of Philadelphia-based Cross Ledge Investments, whom he met when she was a guest on his show. The couple has one child together, a daughter. Velshi lives in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

Joe has never had a good relationship with Rachel.

From the very beginning, I think he was jealous of her success. It's not that he doesn't like liberals/progressives, because he has many on his show. He just doesn't like HER.

I remember the election coverage in 2012 when Rachel was first on the election night coverage panel. Joe actually was on that panel too, and he was in a completely different room from Rachel. Not at the anchor desk with her, but on camera in a different room. I remember thinking how strange that was.

Even with some of the biggest stories she has covered, and biggest interviews she has done, Rachel has never been on Morning Joe. And Joe has had pretty much every other MSNBC host on his show, including Lawrence O'Donnell.

I think the only ones who have never been on Morning Joe are Rachel and Chris Hayes.

I should point out that Morning Joe is a good place for other MSNBC hosts to appear when they're promoting something, especially since he's on first thing in the morning, and it lets people know what's coming up in the evening.

Whether it's an interview, or a book, or something big, the other MSNBC hosts always show up on Morning Joe to promote it.

That's why I pointed out that Rachel and Chris have never been on Morning Joe. So you know that there's bad blood between them.

Upon taking office in January 2010, McQuade restructured the office for the first time in more than 35 years to align attorney resources with the priorities of the district: national security, violent crime, public corruption, civil rights and financial fraud, including mortgage fraud, health care fraud, and environmental crimes.[6]

MSNBC Tops Fox News on Saturday, Caps Highest-Rated Week Ever

Election coverage over the past few days has handed MSNBC a big win in the ratings November 10, 2020 @ 10:10 AM

Election coverage from Nov. 2 to Nov. 8 has handed a major ratings win to MSNBC, which had the highest-rated week in its 25-year history, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings data.

Total viewers averaged 2.9 million, according to Nielsen. In the advertiser-coveted age demographic of viewers between 25 and 54, MSNBC averaged 736,000 viewers. The network says that’s its highest-rated week since the week of March 17, 2003, the week the Iraq War started.

Saturday was the highest-rated Saturday in the history of the cable news channel and was its second-highest-rated day ever. MSNBC’s first highest-rated day was Election Day, last Tuesday.

On Saturday, MSNBC’s coverage of speeches by President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris outperformed ratings juggernaut Fox News. The Democratic election winners drew a record-breaking 9 million average total viewers. In the key 25-to-54 demo, those speeches brought in an average of 2.5 million. The speeches were the highest-rated program in MSNBC’s history.

MSNBC’s special coverage on Saturday, when Biden and Harris were officially declared the winners by all the major news outlets, also topped Fox News every hour from 8 a.m. ET to 3 a.m. ET in both total average viewers and viewers in that key age demographic. This win included a special edition of MSNBC’s morning show “Morning Joe,” which ran from 8 a.m. ET to 1 p.m. ET.

Last night, Rachel Maddow thanked a guest for her prayers and said "I'm a believer". I realize that a lot of people turn to religion in a crisis, but being "a believer" sounds more serious than that. So now I think less of her, which is too bad because I used to admire her a lot -- not as much as Colbert, but same general letdown feeling.

by Anonymousreply 25311/21/2020

I saw that, too, r253.

"Prayer" can be synonymous with meditations, well wishes, good vibrations. It's just that Christians, to its diminishment, have appropriated that word and act.

I'm a non-believer myself and describe myself as such.

Christianity is a myth. As such, I'm a non-believer in it, although I have no beef with with those who seek to conform their behavior on that of a tolerant, forbearing, merciful Jesus who couldn't be bothered to pre-occupy himself with the sex lives of others.

Or, Maddow could be a fiercely believing Catholic.

I don't know, but I too thought her remark was interesting.

Don't be so judgmental.

It's like someone saying they think less of you now that they know you're gay. It's not cool.

She is on the "right side," meaning that she fights for liberal and progressive causes, she's highly intelligent, she's gay, and she's a very decent person. That's all that should matter to us.

Rachel made me a delicious Manhattan at her pop-up bar at the msnbc White House Correspondents Dinner after-party. It took place at the Embassy of Italy in D.C. I was there pretty early so we had a nice conversation and she made herself a drink alongside mine and then we took a selfie.

Republicans who "left" the GOP only left Trumpland, or what the Republican party has become.

They haven't left behind their conservative values.

Their argument is that it was Trumpers who left their conservative beliefs behind.

In that light, understand that those of us who had profound philosophical issues with those Lincoln Project people in a pre-Trump world will continue to have issues with them because they're still the same people.

These "former" Republicans served their purpose in helping getting rid of Trump - think of it as "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" - but now it's back to our old battle positions. They served their purpose.
