I like Hayes' show but whoever here thinks he's muscular and fit is dead wrong. He's fit-fat. I've seen that pic of him at the gym but clearly his diet defeats a lot of the work he puts in.
I like how hard Hayes goes at the evil repubs
the sassiest by far is O'Donnell though. I laugh at him going in on the repubs as he sounds every bit the white guy who was young in the 70s and 80s. I'm glad he doesn't try to talk like a young person though as it would be absurd for someone his age

[quote] MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace Reveals What Now ‘Terrifies’ Her About The GOP
MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace on Monday told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert what really scares her about the Republican Party following its capitulation to former President Donald Trump.
Wallace, who served as White House communications director under former President George W. Bush, described herself as a “self-loathing former Republican.” She lamented how the GOP today isn’t even trying to spin events and is now just built on a foundation of B.S.
“They are so far from the truth that you can no longer have a conversation with them about how to solve anything because they don’t agree on what the problems are, and that terrifies me,” the “Deadline: White House” anchor said.

Joy has developed a habit of muttering yeah as a guest finishes a point, especially if they are not going where her pointed question directed them. Almost as bad as Ari's hmmm, as if he was busy on his phone and realized a response is required.
Nicolle is a bit overexposed on MSNBC lately, but her engagement and response to guests is impeccable. She is an excellent questioner, and very interested in responses. She often changes direction in comment/questioning in response.

This is what I look for in an interviewer. Someone who actually LISTENS to what their guests are saying.
Too many of these talking heads just want to hear THEMSELVES talk. They really don't give a shit what their guests have to say.
It's only THEIR opinion that counts.
If that's the case - if you're not going to listen to your guest comments - then DON'T HAVE THEM ON.

Last night Rachel tried to get Dr Fauci to state there was pressure from the WH for the CDC to delay statement on fully vaccinated guidelines. WTF is her problem? She had read some article on new drugs to treat COVID patients and she was speculating there was something amiss with the WH not promoting thes wonder drugs. Fauci had to once again correct her and explain the drugs she was talking about were not oral drugs but drugs that require infusion centers to be used. He further informed her these drugs were being looked at. You could see she was not happy with being put in her place. She then told Dr. Fauci he was welcome to come on her show anytime he was suspicious of any WH issues with being forthcoming on the virus. Again, WTF is her problem with Biden? She talks out of both sides of her mouth about him.

Chuck is a lot taller than 5'2" for the love of God. All you have to do is look at him. He even stands up now once in a while on MTP.

Yeah, Nicolle has her tag lines as R101, R102 and R103 noted above but she is still the best of the MSNBC hosts. I have noticed that there are 4 republican commentators (Rick Wilson, John Hielman, Steve Schmidt and (to a lesser extent) Mike Murphy) that look quite similar but have s viewpoints and delivery styles that are a bit unique. Of the four, I find Mike Murphy the best since he really boils down the topic at hand and doesn't go to the Moon and back like John H. to explain what could be said in far fewer words. Also, have you noted how many different pair of eyeglasses John H. wears when he's on? Maybe he's hawking frames for Warby Parker. Mike Murphy is usually on The 11th Hour which is a bit late for me but I've caught him in the replays if I wake up and can't sleep.

"Kornacki had a slot?"
April 28, 2017 "The show [Deadline Whitehouse] based in New York, will take over the 4-5 PM ET timeslot, replacing the 4 PM edition of MSNBC Live currently hosted by political correspondent Steve Kornacki. As host, Wallace will tackle the latest political developments and conduct newsmaker interviews, according to the network. MSNBC says Kornacki “will continue his presence in the hour, providing in-depth discussion and analysis.”"
Steve's continuing presence lasted less than 2 weeks. It was a little humiliating to have him just sitting on set for much of the show.

It’s been awhile since we’ve discussed Phil Rucker and his wonderfully appointed, street-level condo somewhere near downtown DC.
Today with Nicolle he was showing off his embrace of spring with fresh daffodils and a beautiful orchid. But what caught my eye was the painting on the wall... I think he changed it for the season, but I can’t really tell.
Also... where has Nicolle been?! I believe she was out for two weeks. I didn’t mind Alex Whatshername too much last week, but the first fill-in I believe was Ayman who doesn’t quite do it for me as much as John Heilemann does.

You may be right. I wasn't watching last night, but from what I understand, her video froze, and then they said in the crawl at the bottom of the screen that "Rachel's camera is having technical difficulties." Then Rachel said it was a power outage in the studio. But wasn't Ali Velshi, who temporarily stepped in, supposedly in the same New York studio? Was it a highly localized power outage that only affected Rachel's set but not Ali's set?
Now that a lot of news anchors and hosts have perfected the art of using the right lighting and makeup and "green screens" in their homes, I suspect we'll see more cases of them "phoning it in" from home while fooling us to make it look like they're actually in the studio.

I don't think Rachel needs to tell us exactly where she is each night. If she wants to anchor from home, and the network execs are OK with it, that's fine. But she tweeted that the technical difficulties were due to a "power outage at the studio." If that's not true, and it was actually because of problems with her webcam or Internet connection at home, then she's lying to her viewers. (And no, I'm not necessarily saying she was lying, but the frozen video sounds more like camera or Internet issues than a studio power outage.)

Kasie has always been loyal to Morning Joe, R273.
That show basically got her to where she is today.
Before that, Kasie was just an obscure reporter like Vaughn Hillyard. It was her visibility on Morning Joe that raised her profile.
The same could be said of Willie Geist, and many others. Morning Joe (regardless of what you think of Joe) is a really good launching pad for MSNBC reporters.
They're wise to kiss his ass. He has a lot of pull with the network.

LOL R278, yes. I would watch sometimes to see Aymin and UGHH, that hour is the reason I haven't warmed up to her weekend slots. Yasmin & Aymin and Velshi & Ruhle were such forced pairings, I really felt for Aymin and Ali! And I like Stephanie!

I am becoming increasingly aggravated with MSNBC.
From Day 1 in 2017, the powers that be at the network INSISTED that everyone call Donald Trump, PRESIDENT Trump. They always used that title when referring to him.
Not so with President Biden.
Everyone, from Joe Scarborough, to Claire McCaskill, to Mika.... I mean EVERYONE keeps calling him "Joe Biden."
WHY CAN'T THEY GIVE HIM THE RESPECT THAT HE'S ENTITLED TO????
He's not just "Joe Biden." He's the President of the United States!!!
If they could make the effort for the WORST person to ever have that title - Donald DUMP - then why can't they do the same for President Biden???

I heard Joy tonight. She was angry that the Brooklyn Center police officer was not fired but got to resign. She said it allowed the officer to keep her pension and work elsewhere. Honestly, that officer is going no place but to prison and if she was fired without a hearing, she could sue the city. Joy knows that. Then she went on and on about there's no way that anyone could mistake a gun for a taser and it was insulting to suggest that. Has she ever heard of right-left confusion, a brain condition? I'm not saying it happened or that this woman should walk, but it does negate the specific intent needed for Murder One charges. Then she took a shot at the Mayor for cancelling an interview for her show, implying he belonged on air to justify his actions. That's bullshit. He has the national guard and angry mobs in his backyard. That's his top priority.
In short, this isn't AM talk radio. where Joy's job is to work people up so they keep listening or call in. I respect her anger and pain. I think lots of people need those emotions expressed right now. But it's also important to dispassionately explain the law and not work people up ways that exacerbate their very real grievances with modern policing.

I don't think people are questioning THAT the officer mistook the gun for the taser.
The issue is why: how that could possibly have happened in the first place when a gun and a taser are very different from each other and they're on different sides of an officer's body.
It's almost a question of what was going on in the officer's head subconsciously while in the situation.
|by Anonymous||reply 353||21 hours ago|
[quote] I don't think people are questioning THAT the officer mistook the gun for the taser.
There's no question that she did use the gun instead of the taser. The question is whether she used the gun by mistake or on purpose. It seems unlikely that she would use the gun on purpose under the circumstances (it didn't appear that she was being threatened or provoked into losing her temper), which would mean that it must have been a mistake -- yet that seems almost equally unlikely. According to Sherlock Holmes: “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.”
