I'm a big MSNBC fan. However, Joshua Johnson and Alicia Menedez on the weekend are the only two anchors who have totally turned me off. They are big snooze fests, lackluster and unappealing, and I can no longer watch them. When they're on, I now switch to Jim Acosta, the new midday anchor on CNN.

On Joy's show right now: Nikole Hannah-Jones suffered a massive indignity and insult by having her tenure bid stalled by UNC and she was right to choose Howard instead. Is there any reason, however, for Ta-Nehesi Coates to call this this incident an act of theft akin to that of using slaves to build a public institution? That's crazy. She ultimately turned the position down and she was right to do so. But that isn't theft akin to slavery.

Hannah-Jones was also on talking about choosing Notre Dame as an undergrad institution over a historically Black school and what a miserable experience it was. I don't doubt it. I would have hated going there myself. It's not known as a liberal school and the University of Michigan or Chicago could have provided an equally prestigious education minus at least some of the frat boy racism. She made a bad choice. She should have transferred. If it was a matter of a scholarship covering tuition, another school would have matched it.

I value these people's work but not their hyperbole. Good luck to both at Howard. Joy's hair is back to being ridiculous again--first, with bad straight wigs and now with awful coiled braids in shades of brown and blonde. Get a mirror.

I think that the pandemic showed that there is actually zero reason for anyone to be in a studio. They should all just be remote with green screens behind them. There is no value in being in the same physical space.

by Anonymousreply 140July 8, 2021 1:48 PM

Except that MSNBC seems unable to maintain good connections with remote locations, so the sound is often garbled and/or the pictures frozen, etc. Why this should be so difficult after more than a year is a mystery to me, and apparently also beyond the capabilities of MSNBC.

Bingo card it if you don’t believe me. He needs to pull down some of those very good books that are always featured behind him and try to find some new phrases. I see a lot of Toni Morrison on his bookshelf. Crack one of those open and crib something from her, an incredible (and non-repetitive) African-American icon.

Now, of course, he fashions himself as part of "The Resistance" but all I can think is, "Yeah, but had it not been for people like you who refused to open your fucking eyes and see it was a race between the imperfect (Hillary) and downright evil (Trump), there might not be anything to resist, but whatever."

When she was on "The View", people on message boards always commented on her "cackle" because she laughed too loudly and too often and at such inappropriate times. It usually seems like nervous laughter to me, but maybe I'm being too lenient. There is nothing funny about the voting suppression laws and Congress' inability to combat those -- I really doubt that she disagrees with me about that, but I also really wish she'd learn how to stifle the cackle.

R148 That's true of most of the Morning Joe crowd. In my view, no one was more responsible for getting Trump elected than Joe Scarborough; he absolutely lavished attention on Trump during the Republican primary, particularly in the early stages. I don't know if he ever came out publicly with a mea culpa, but I'm convinced that he realized his own responsibility for the disaster and so devoted himself to nonstop Trump criticism. Having said that, and regarding Eddie Glaude, I find it nearly impossible to figure out how Black people should regard the Democratic Party. Clintonism meant the deliverance of the Democratic Party to neoliberalism and Wall Street, which in turn did great damage (to put it mildly) to working people and, of course, to Black people. But then, given the completely open hostility of the Republican Party to Black people these days, how can they not support Democrats?

I think that's true of nearly all the Republican (or ex-Republican) "never Trumpers." They were the ones who helped make the Republican Party into what it is today, pandered to the far-right fringe, and created the environment in which someone like Trump was able to run for president and win. And they knew exactly what they were doing. But they overestimated their ability to control the Republican base. They naively thought that once Trump (or someone like him) was in office, they would be able to convince him and his supporters to tone down the craziness instead of turning it up to full blast.

What a nice story on Rachel Maddow's show just now -- about America having taken refugees from VietNam and Iraq to Guam after American troops withdrew from the refugees' countries. And now the same will be done for Afghans who helped U.S. troops there as translators. The Gov. of Guam (who's encouraged Biden to do that) appeared and spoke about how much Guam wants to help people in this position.

In fact Guam's governor appeared on the previous night's show and spoke about how much they want to help those Afghans relocate in the same way Guam assisted South Vietnamese and Iraqis in similar situations in the past.

R225: Thanks for your apology, though you may have me confused with someone else because I don't think I'm "constantly harping on how awful the black hosts on MSNBC are". The fact is, Jason Johnson appears very often (either as a guest or a substitute host) and Joy Reid has her own show every weekday, so there is frequent occasion to comment on their performances. But I stopped watching them once I realized that they weren't improving, so the most I usually do is agree with someone else's criticism of them.

And I wish it could go without saying that my dislike of those two loudmouths has nothing to do with their race, but apparently it can't be assumed that an anchor's race is irrelevant. The only other full-time black hosts I'm aware of are Joshua Johnson and Jonathan Capehart, both of whom are on at times when I'm not usually watching TV, but I've liked them fine whenever I've seen them. There are several black guests who appear frequently on shows that I watch most days and none of them offends me (I can't list their names, since my memory doesn't work), because they're articulate and knowledgeable and have something useful to say (without yelling). By the same token, there are white anchors that I dislike -- Chris Hayes is loud and hyper, Chuck Todd is pompous and superficial, Joe Scarborough is a jerk and his wife is stupid -- but I don't consider them lousy at their jobs because of their race.

And by the way, I'm not a Republican.

Or they could just forget about live news so early in the morning and make it a straightforward baking show that's recorded, so McCaskill doesn't have to get up before sunrise. She could editorialize about politics while the day's goodies are baking, and some trainee could break in every half hour with a brief live news update.

Whoever suggested a baking show for Claire, has me cracking up.

I think she would be totally insulted by that.

Yes, she's Frautastic.

But the woman is a former U.S. Senator. I highly doubt she would consider a "baking show" to be worthy of her background.

R386, she'd be welcome to pontificate about politics while whipping egg whites. Modern women needn't confine themselves to one thing at a time, and there's as much honor in baking a beautiful cake as in being a politician (many people might say there's more).

Have you seen her on MSNBC, broadcasting from her kitchen, always with a different cake in the background? Baking is one of her many talents. She's even posted recipes on Twitter. She probably knows more about baking than most of the idiots on the Food Network.

Besides, it wouldn't be purely a baking a show. She would talk about voting rights, COVID vaccines, GOP craziness, etc., as she's mixing the ingredients. She could even invite some of her former Senate colleagues to join her as guests in her kitchen. It would be a hoot.

Lol R387 and R388.

I'm not arguing with you!

Personally, I would love nothing more than to see Claire doing a show with exactly what you're talking about. You especially, R388.

But nowdays, you never know how people will react to those suggestions.

She seems good humored enough to take those things in stride, and have a good laugh with us.

But then there are others, who would go absolutely berserk, and call for you to be cancelled just for the thought of it!

Joy Reid is a guest tonight on Steven Colbert - will she be sporting her braided coif or maybe something a bit more demure? It would be interesting to see what she wears tonight on her show The ReidOut and if that carries over to her guest spot on Colbert. If someone is subbing for her on The ReidOut then maybe she could wear a Do-rag with a big Afro pic hanging from her neck which would through a big curve to her fans! The Colbert audience would love it!

I believe anytime MSNBC's primetime hosts appear on late-night talk shows, those shows are usually taped around 4:30 in the afternoon, so she likely had already done Colbert's show before heading back to the studio to host her own show live last night (which accounts for why she had on the same outfit).
