If Jen Psaki seems like she's "winging it" it's because she is. She's not reading from a script. She doesn't know what questions will be asked, though I suppose some of them are predictable. Nevertheless, she's doing it in real time in front of the world watching. I can't believe how poised and composed she is.
And I love that she and the Biden administration are not hiding anything in these press conferences. When she doesn't know an answer or is unable to confide or reveal something, she admits it. It's about as transparent as can be.

Saw the Mooch segment again. She set up an ambush but he did not handle himself well. Nicole Wallace had Chris Christie on and devastated him by saying he was trying to wash the Trump stink off of himself. It was not a set-up. She spoke her piece and the interview moved on. Tiffany was doing a ratings grab that she and her producers obviously dreamed up. She could have attacked the Trump defectors MSNBC regularly has on and lionizes but that wouldn't wash. . She could have had on Omarosa and tried that tactic, but Omarosa would have ripped her a new one. Scaramucci is low-hanging fruit. Also, he's eager to appear on TV to promote his new cryptocurrency hedge fund. He'd show up for the opening of an envelope, as they say.
I think hiring her was as bold a move as giving a show to Melissa Harris Perry. Both women have very little use for white people and are more comfortable communicating to a Black, primarily female audience. I respect MSNBC's programming choice and will turn the channel off as soon as Ali Velshi is done and back on for Rev Al, Alicia Mendez and Joshua Johnson.

Tiffany and to a lesser degree, Joy Reid, are primed to do battle with many white males who are not woke enough to suit. Sometimes uncalled for, usually unprofessional. Joy, overall, is a better interviewer and manages to control herself. Tiffany is all "black girl magic" and that just doesn't cut it.
However, the treatment many black political figures have gotten for decades is just not being given an opportunity to speak. They were not even given the opportunity to be challenged. Think back over the prior ten years, black guests were usually those who passed the acceptable to whites test. The networks trotted out big names in civil rights, who knew not to antagonize whitey.

The difference is that the reporters like Ashley Parker, Michael Schmidt, etc., go on the cable news shows to talk about the stories they spent all day writing and researching. As for the professors who spend all their time on cable news, I wonder if any of them actually do things like grade papers or reply to student emails.

Nicole first pitched her show as the policy wonk with insider experience on how the white house functions. I wish she’d get back to that now that we have a functioning government. Why couldn’t she have devoted a half hour of her show to Biden’s foreign policy speech instead of MTG? Instead it’s the same parade of former republicans trying to grift liberals and lament about the good ol’ days when the GOP used to be about screwing over poor people and perpetual war with Muslims.

The site also says that he's been married twice: "In 2002, he married Olympic diver and Canada native, Anne Montminy; they divorced in 2004. In 2013, he married Corinne Levy. They have had five children as of 2019."

[quote] Alex Witt is such a frau.
I've posted this before, but of all the MSNBC hosts, I find Alex Witt to be the most fascinating. She's been at MSNBC longer than anyone else -- since 1999, when Bill Clinton was president. Other hosts have come and gone, but Alex Witt has always remained. But she's almost never featured in MSNBC promos and publicity, and she never substitutes for any of the other hosts. And I don't think she does any reporting or anchoring for NBC News (maybe she did in her earlier days). She just breezes in on the weekends to read the news for a few hours, then disappears until the next weekend. A nice gig, I guess.
She's had a long but thoroughly unremarkable career in TV news. There's almost nothing about her on the web, except that she was sued for not repaying a loan from a friend. And apparently she was in a band of suburban hausfraus who called themselves the "Mrs. Robinsons" back in 2001.

I’ve noticed that Joy and her protégées have slowly started to take over msnbc. Just an endless parade of race baiters tying absolutely every single thing back to race.
Ari is the chief legal analyst for NBC. During impeachment coverage he was given a few 2 or 3 minute segments. The rest of the coverage was Joy and her 10 minute monologues about how this was all about black people, Nicole Wallace lamenting about how much she misses the Republican Party of days past, and the same handful of woke “contributors” who say the same thing every time they’re on.
MSNBC is becoming unwatchable, especially during special coverage. The Chris-Rachel-Lawrence block is still great, and they have some great on the ground reporters, but other than that it’s becoming tedious.
And don’t even get me started on Tiffany Cross. Her voice could cut thru steel, and that’s the least of her problems.

I turn the channel when Joy and Jason Johnson are on with their racial victimology messaging. That's their prime focus. Frankly, it hurt Democrats in plenty of the 2020 races. Recognize and support peaceful protests, but justifying or not condemning looting, arson, and vandalism, is going too far. And this "defund the police" rhetoric played into Republican hands. They can't be espousing "fairness is demanded" for certain political candidates while trashing Pete Buttigieg when he's not on the show or represented by a supporter or campaign staff member.
|by Anonymous||reply 259||February 15, 2021 8:00 PM|
Angela Rye has begun popping up on Joy’s show the past few weeks. Another racist for Joy to invite on to bash any and every white person.
I know they don’t like to admit it, but Biden won because enough white people-particularly white men-were able to stomach him enough to hold their noses and vote for a democrat. Not every democrat needs to pander to black people. When Tiffany Cross had Tim Ryan on to discuss his potential senate run she attempted to shame him for focusing on the white working class when he was running for president, and asked him how that would be a winning message in Ohio. In Ohio, where democrats are bleeding support from white people.
Insightful political analysis is rare these days on msnbc. Nuance is out the window.

I'm sure there are better Progressive/Democratic representatives for African American females than Joy HOMOPHOBE Reid.

Rachel can be long-winded and boring, but she does her homework and her research so you know that at least what she's reporting is factual.

People really just don’t get Joe Manchin. All the cabinet officials in the Trump admin that he voted to confirm we’re going to be confirmed with or without his vote. He was “allowed” to vote to confirm them so he could go back home to West Virginia and tell people “see I vote with the republicans a lot!” which is why he’s able to keep winning there. When it comes down to it, on the important stuff he always votes with the dems and always will.

Miller graduated from Regis Jesuit High School in 2000 in Aurora Colorado. Graduated The George Washington University in 2004 with a BA in Political Science. Miller is openly gay. He attributes his decision to take the risk of coming out in 2007, while still working on Republican campaigns, in part to the Larry Craig scandal.
As of 2020, Miller lives in Oakland, California with his husband and their child

If Mehdi gets a show Sundays at 8 p.m., that will eliminate the first hour of Joshua Johnson's weekend show on Sunday. I'll bet Joshua Johnson will soon be gone from MSNBC. The network hasn't given him very much to do.

R445 R452 R456 Is “snark” something you want in a newscaster? I find it tiresome, immature and unprofessional and it’s gotten really old really fast.

R458, you must be too young to remember David Brinkley, champion of "snark" before that term had been invented. My family got a TV when I was 5 and my parents watched the dinnertime news on NBC because they got such a kick out of Brinkley. So I grew up watching him and paying attention to catch his subtle reactions to what he was reporting, sometimes just his extremely agile eyebrow. Williams would probably be the first to admit that he's not up to Brinkley's standards, but he's got the right approach and that attitude can be more effective than straightforward "sincerity" that seldom comes off right.
Brinkley would have demolished Trumpy, with style -- wish I could have seen that.

Thank you for explaining to the youngsters, r460.
If they want sincerity at MSNBC, they need look no further than Steve Kornacki and his khakis. Except he no longer has his own show. MSNBC loves snark. And I love MSNBC.

So someone said Kornacki jumped to NBC to do Sunday night football? Because he's completely vanished from MSNBC (at least as far as I've seen).

Kornacki used to fill in for the anchor desk all the time. Almost every Monday for Chuck Todd and frequently for Brian Williams and when Hardball was still on. But he hasn’t done that in months. I assumed it was because he was focused on the election but he hasn’t been back since. What gives?

Kornacki will be back for the whiteboard during elections. He is a miserable fill in host, awkward, uncomfortable with POC and women. He has a narrow lane, nerdy obsessive election stat analysis.

Totally agree r464, especially regarding women of color. Just look up the clip when Zerlina Maxwell snatched his ass. Classic!

Kornacki was bad at his own show but he wasn’t too bad filling in. He’s socially awkward tho and no “woke” enough for the current msnbc run by Joy Reid

Haha Brian Williams ended his broadcast last night with another snarky Trump remark.
You guys are right. It's totally low-key snark, and very hilarious!
It starts right at the 40 minute mark in the video.

Brian is hilarious at R467, regarding CPAC:
"A festival of worship, and a political party that now exists in service to one man - a twice impeached private citizen in Florida."

Speaking of Zerlina, why did they give the Saturday Joy Reid slot to helium-voiced YassGirl Tiffany, and not to her?

Because r469, I like Zerlina but she was almost as bad as Andrea Mitchell in her delivery.

Rachel just announced msnbc was #1 in the ratings for ALL of cable, not just cable news. Wow

unfortunately Fox has rebounded with Carlson and Hannity. It's truly maddening. How many old white pieces of shit are there in this country? They watch Fox relentlessly. Being pumped with propaganda is their version of crack
Rachel dominated January and February but sadly I'm not sure that will continue in March

I'll be honest, I'm taking a much needed break from news the past few weeks. Now that Dump is gone, I need to decompress. How can anyone watch cable news for hours on end, anyway? It's so repetitive and boring. If something major happens, Twitter will alert you.

R476 - Why would anyone watch cable news for hours on end in the first place when one can watch in moderation?
I watch an hour in the morning (the first hour of Morning Joe) and an hour at night (Maddow), plus the NBC Evening News.
I DVR them and watch about 15 minutes after they start so I can zip past commercials.
It ends up being about an hour & a half of news & commentary (as well as Claire McKaskill's desserts)

It is time for Muriel to acknowledge that her threadlocking strategy is a failure. It only encourages those locked out to start a new thread. Since they can’t alert people in the old thread, the discussion gets split up. Poor forum hygiene.

Rachel was talking about her brother-in-law but I didn't think that Rachel and Susan were married. She said her brother-in-law and Susan's mother went to get vaccinated together.
This link says they aren't married. All the articles about Rachel says that Susan is her partner, not her wife.
