She is happy that finally a Trump campaign staffer confirmed in an interview that they did in fact pay extras to appear at the launch of his 2015 candidacy. Rachel's show reported on it back when it happened and they got attacked. Now she's vindicated

Rachel did a deep dive into Trump corruption. It was very watchable when one of her guests pointed out that her Saudi/UAE pairing was missing the Russian component. That it was actually a Russian-UAE-Saudi trail of foreign nationals' corruption and influence.

Funny that Velshi mentioned that Weisselberg was a chump because he didn't get UAE cash.

I've been surprised by the general lack of coverage/discussion/promotions teasing the upcoming Olympics, considering that it starts tomorrow. I'll admit that I've been watching mostly MSNBC and not the other NBC-affiliated networks, so maybe it's happening and I'm not just not seeing it, but usually NBC and Comcast saturate the airwaves with non-stop promotions for the Olympics. I'm wondering if NBC/Comcast fears that the Olympics will end up being a COVID shitshow, so they're scaling back their usual promotional blitz in case everything goes to hell.

R60 I think what you might have detected was her attempt to remain objective as a Capitol Hill reporter who's in contact with members from both sides of the aisle everyday. Whenever she expresses her own views, usually by acknowledging the absurdity of events & politics in Washington, it's clearly with a liberal slant. She did have guests from the right on her panel show, Kasie DC, and was very tough on them, esp. when it came to their distorted versions of the truth.

Exactly. Some of you bitches who complain because Kasie Hunt, Andrea Mitchell, and yes, even the ever-loathed Chuck Todd aren't as openly liberal in their broadcasts as you'd like them to be seem to forget that, unlike Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O'Donnell, they have to (or in Kasie's case, HAD to) do double duty for both MSNBC and NBC News, so they have to appear nonpartisan and maintain objectivity. Kasie is a journalist, not a commentator, but if you ever watched Kasie DC, it was clear that she was frustrated and disgusted by the antics of Trump and today's GOP.

I like MSNBC, but I've always had the impression that it's a sweatshop and a nickel-and-dime operation. The big names like Rachel and Lawrence obviously make big money, but I'm not so sure about all the rest. CNN is a full-blown news operation, whereas MSNBC isn't and never has been. MSNBC has to draw upon NBC News talent because they don't have their own staff of full-time reporters. And when all of the regular anchors and hosts are on vacation, MSNBC has to scramble to find substitutes by forcing people like Ali Velshi to work all hours of the day or by trying to turn their analysts like Claire McCaskill or Jason Johnson into news anchors. It would be like tuning in to CNN and seeing David Axelrod substituting for Wolf Blitzer.

[quote] They actually assign people to stand-by and cover in case of unforeseen circumstances.

Of course they assign people, and it's probably part of their contract that they have to be available to anchor, if asked. I didn't mean they grab people at random off the street. It's just that MSNBC has to dig pretty deep into the pool in order to cover all the slots, to the point of turning to people who have never anchored or hosted a TV show before. That might be fine at the local level, but a national network of MSNBC's stature should have enough experienced journalists and hosts on staff where they don't have to ask someone like Jason Johnson (a professor) or Michael Steele (former RNC chair) or Jonathan Lemire (a print journalist with a full-time gig at the AP). You don't see other networks asking their analysts and contributors to also serve as fill-in anchors. You'd never see NBC ask someone who had never read a teleprompter before to anchor the national news in place of Lester Holt.

I'll never forget the tantrum Ali threw on January 6.

I guess he had been working all day on the Insurrection story, and then they made him stay up all night while Congress reconvened, and then voted and certified the 2020 election.

By about 2 or 3 a.m., Ali was visibly exhausted and irritable, and he kept saying "I'm leaving at 4 a.m. I don't care if there's someone here to take my place of not, but I'm done. I'm leaving. I'm exhausted."

And you can add people like Bill Kristol, Tim Miller, and Charlie Sykes to the list. MSNBC has become more of an anti-Trump network than a true left-leaning network. It will be interesting to see what happens if Trump ever does go away or die, or if the GOP goes from being totally batshit crazy to slightly less batshit crazy (doubtful, I know). Will any of these conservatives (or former conservatives) continue to appear on MSNBC, or will they all bolt to Fox News?

I was at a brunch with my Capitol Hill contact on Sunday. He has had several interactions/run-ins with Jake Sherman (Punchbowl News) and confirmed that Jake is a total asshole. Basically he’s a Republican. He’s a snide bitch who whines and pitches fits when he doesn’t get his way.

Also, the gossip I dropped over a month ago on the Treason threads that the FBI has secured the cooperation of Matt Gaetz’s victim was re-confirmed. Gaetz will most likely be indicted by summer’s end.

I agree with the upthread poster that it's mostly the same news recycled, but I do appreciate some of the commentary.

This is what I do: I dvr the prime time lineup, then I start with Brian Williams and go backwards. His show usually recounts the day's top stories in order of importance. I'll watch his 6-minute recap of the day's events, ff to see if he has one of my favorite historians on (like Jon Meachum or Michael Bechloss), then watch Last Thing Before We Go. Then I skip back to Chris Hayes' 10-minute opening monologue, then I end with Rachel. If her top story seems different from what I've already seen, or is a point of view not taken, I'll mostly watch in its entirety. If it seems like a story she's stretching out to the end, I'll just skip ahead to the punchline.

So I get all my news in less than one hour. I wish I could use my FF remote in real life circumstances.

it is repetitive but for good reason. Viewers cannot forget the atrocities that Trump and the repubs have committed and keep committing. We're not in normal times. Not everyone who turns on the news is watching it daily like we do. They need a reminder that the repubs are lying about every fucking issue you can imagine.

Next year will be a fight for our democracy yet again. If the repubs regain both halves of congress we are fucked worse than during the Trump era because this time they will not let go of power. They're showing now with everything they're doing that they are willing to continuously pump out dangerous disinformation from coronavirus to election results and everything in between.

I agree, but MSNBC's viewership hasn't forgotten the atrocities that Trump and the GOP are committing. The people who have forgotten and need constant reminders are, unfortunately, the ones who don't watch MSNBC.

[quote] Not everyone who turns on the news is watching it daily like we do. They need a reminder that the repubs are lying about every fucking issue you can imagine.

I would guess (though I'll admit I have no statistics to point to) that people who are only casual or sporadic news consumers generally aren't watching MSNBC. MSNBC's audience seems to be more loyal viewers and news die-hards.

Somehow, we need to get to the people who are being brainwashed with disinformation and give them a dose of the truth (a difficult thing to do, I know). MSNBC is great at firing up the Democratic base, but it's not going to stop the spread of disinformation or change the minds of the idiots who believe it.

I am not saying they shouldn't report what they are reporting but I don't feel like they are talking to me, but to Trump supporters.

I wish they spent more time talking to people in the trenches -- activists across the country, unsung heroes, people like the guy who confronted Tucker Carlson in the Montana bait shop. I wish they spent more time actually breaking down issues like immigration, climate change, or student loan forgiveness and discussing the pros and cons of various solutions. But doing that would cost a lot of money and require a network of reporters around the country. And probably wouldn't get very good ratings.

[quote] She has afternoon tea and is prepared to accept a visiting card at a moment's notice.

[quote] My kind of lady..

Mine too.

It's a sign of good manners and upbringing.

You can tell that she was raised well.

Monica and her parents are reconciling over tea at Claire's. (See R215 above).

Jonathan Capehart had an amazing and informative segment on Covid, this morning.

Watch it if you can.

[quote]Speaking of Monica, THE VIEW is crazy not to hire Monica Lewinsky.

Why? So we can go from hearing "my father, John McCain" every day to "I was a victim of Bill Clinton" every other sentence?

Lewinsky is a whole lot smarter than McCain.

Lewinski blames Roger Ailes and Drudge more than Clinton.

That depends what the meaning of is is.

Monica never said she was a victim. She was a consenting adult.

Monica has no one to blame but herself.

So true.

Exactly, R243. No one forced her down on her knees.

That’s a VERY low bar.

At some point in testimony or maybe just in an interview, Monica said that she's the one who started it with Clinton. Not that he ever seems to have needed much of an invitation, but this wasn't like the Paula Jones incident where he (allegedly) propositioned her.

Shit, Limire is back at 5:00am. They're going to give it to him and he sucks behind the desk.

They are still running My Pillow commercials. Why the fuck are they running ads from someone who is trying to overthrow our government?

Elise Stefanik is a fat dumpy pig.

This morning on "Morning Mika" she had almost the entire first half hour to herself, she didn't introduce Jonathan Lemire until 20 minutes into the show, she one guest a Florida Hospital official who only Mika questioned. More shockingly it was 33 minutes into the show before she even had her first commercial.

In the second half hour while attempting to say election, she instead said erection, which even she found amusing. Unfortunately she wasn't on camera when she said erection but she was having trouble controlling her laugh and the next time she said election she emphasized election.

In Mika's defense, her focus was on the alarming rise in COVID hospitalizations among the unvaccinated, particularly in the hardest hit state of Florida.

And about 5 minutes of the beginning of the show consisted of two Vaughn Hillyard reports before shortly thereafter going to the FL hospital official.

The first half hour also had a Matt Bradley report from France which then lead to Mika speaking with Ed Luce.

In that respect, the first half hour of the show was more news than discussion focused, and I was OK with that.

No comment on the "erection" slip.
