MSNBC - Part 22

I haven't tuned in since inauguration day, because everything has been relatively peaceful.

It's so nice not to have to witness the "atrocity of the day," but I guess it's bad for MSNBC since viewership must be down.

Well, they're talking about the continued and inexplicable shadow of Trump over the Republican party.

One of the topics this morning, for example, was how GOP members in Massachusetts are seeking to censure Charlie Baker over his support of the Trump impeachment.

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.

Stephanie Rhule, on air, questioned if Lindsey Graham was being blackmailed by Trump/Russia. That was a couple of years ago. Right-wing and Russian publications attacked her as being homophobic.

She nailed it, though. I like her show. She is very good on economics reporting.

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.

The Mooch is no hero, but Tiffany’s behavior was uncalled for and her subsequent tweets just prove that her and her team cooked the whole thing up ahead of time.

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.

But: spoiler alert Nicole, it was that way when you were in it and lying daily to Americans about the Iraq war and feeding talking points to Sean Hannity. 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.

[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.

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.

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.

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.

R260 every vote counts but you are wrong. Biden wouldn't have won had more black and young people of all backgrounds come out to vote for him in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia and then Arizona was thanks to Hispanic and younger votes. The vast majority of white people over 40 voted for Trump yet again. So it gets you nowhere to pander to people who are never going to vote for you anyway.

I understand respecting the office but it annoys me that most people in the media still refer to Trump as if he's a normal former office holder. He should just be called Trump. Not "president", "former president" or "45th president". Just call him Trump. He's a piece of shit who doesn't deserve any honorifics

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

Plus, she's just not smart. Everything on her show is based on opinion, and not fact. I have no respect for that.

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.

Joy is all opinion, and most of the time her opinion is wrong when checked against the facts.

Medhi said some rather bitchy and misogynistic things about MVP Kamala Harris during the campaign. Fuck him and I don’t mean that in a good way. On the other hand, he is MUCH easier on the eyes than Joshua Jackson.

Neera Tanden. Instead of apologizing during the hearings, I wish she'd do like the Repugs and just double down. Can you imagine? Like when that southern bigot John Kennedy asked about her Ted Cruz tweet, saying "a vampire has more heart than Ted Cruz", she should have just said, "I'm trying to be transparent. It's what I believe. Do you disagree?" or comparing Mitch McConnell to Voldemort, she could have said, "yes, that was awful. I apologize to Voldemort."

I mean, seriously, she's not gonna win any of them over, anyway. If she does get in, it'll be by one vote, so why not make the hearings memorable and she might win more in the long run.

Not according to this article. Mehdi's show will run for an hour (8 to 9 p.m.), eliminating the first hour of Joshua's show. Still, Joshua must be pissed, especially since his show just started a few months ago and is already being scaled back. I'll bet he wishes he hadn't left "1A."

They're taking away an hour of Joshua Johnson on Sunday to make room for Mehdi Hasan. But they're adding an hour of Joshua on Friday nights on Peacock.

Brian Williams is a master of snark because he so perfectly underplays it. If you're not listening carefully you can almost miss the irony and sarcasm. I think he's great and balances Rachel and Lawrence beautifully. He's a great steady reassuring voice before going to bed .

And to the Joshua Johnson naysayers, who the fuck is going to do any better bringing in multitudes of viewers on Saturday and Sunday nights? Was there ever an MSNBC anchor on those nights who was wildly popular? Joshua is great and I wish they'd have him start subbing for missing hosts during the week. Of the black hosts, he's far more intelligent and engaging than Joy, Jonathan and Tiffany put together.

Joshua Johnson is fine, but the fact that they've relegated him to Saturday and Sunday nights, when few people are watching cable news, shows that he's not exactly a rising star at MSNBC.

[quote] Was there ever an MSNBC anchor on those nights who was wildly popular?

No, because any MSNBC anchor on Saturday or Sunday night who was wildly popular would be quickly moved to a weekday slot.

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.

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)
