MSNBC - Part 31

So when will Phil Rucker be putting up his Halloween decorations?? Get with the program, Phil.

I like Phil Rucker, At first I was surprised they even put him on TV. Not a Ken Doll and pretty much screams gay without trying or camping it up. I think his reporting has really proved his worth and I hope in the future they consider more non stereotypical gay TV anchors who are as professional and talented as he is without making a spectacle of himself.

Unlike that drag queen Joy something.

I think I figured out why Chris and Rachel don't have the longer style hand off that Lawrence and Rachel do. Rachel's show is repeated at midnight followed by a repeat of Lawrence, followed by a repeat of Brian Williams and then another repeat of Rachel at 4AM eastern time. Chris's show is not repeated after midnight. So a longer hand off would eat into her show, it would be weird to have Chris handing off to Rachel when his show doesn't show over night and not showing the hand off would make her show start later, so they have to keep it short.

There's a Brian Williams Superfan on these threads who either doesn't remember or doesn't want other people to remember that Brian was fired from his NBC Nightly News gig for being a habitual liar. He lied, lied, and lied some more and finally got caught and fired. Since he's still under a mega-bucks contract, NBC put him on their little-watched cable network in a little-watched late night slot.

He will never be prime time again. The competition would ROAST NBC if they promoted him. You can stop advocating for this liar and move on to some other obsession.

Stop trying to make Brian WIlliams happen.

Jeremy Bash has been on Deadline White House and in studio for the whole show to this point for an hour and twenty minutes and is acting like a co-host, asking guests questions and sitting at the table with Nicolle. I have to say they are pretty good together, I wouldn't mind him co-hosting or him getting his own show. They could give him a show at the same time as his ex-wife at CNN and let the Bash's bash it out.

by Anonymousreply 139October 8, 2021 10:25 PM

How about Brian Williams at 8 p.m., Nicolle Wallace at 9 p.m., and Ayman Mohyeldin at 10 p.m.? It's time for Lawrence to retire, and they could move Chris Hayes to 6 or 7 p.m. (which might also mean moving Joy Reid or Ari Melber to a new slot). Yes, I know: It would make prime time less opinionated and less blatantly liberal, Nicolle doesn't want to anchor in the evenings, and Chris Hayes would probably quit rather than take an earlier slot. But if/when Rachel stops doing her nightly gig, it would be a good time for MSNBC to re-evaluate its whole prime time lineup, which has started to get a little stale.

I agree that Garrett is a rising star who might end up anchoring Nightly News one day. But a prime-time show on MSNBC probably isn't the path to Nightly News because it would brand Garrett as too liberal and not objective, even if his MSNBC show tried to be more hard news oriented. If NBC wants to groom Garrett for the Nightly News spot, a more likely path would be to have him anchor Nightly News on the weekends or sub on the Today Show or even Meet the Press.

Dear Rachel Maddow.

Please cover this story, so that Pete Buttigieg will actually DO SOMETHING about it:

[quote] While U.S. ports faced anchor-to-anchor traffic and Congress nearly melted down over the president’s infrastructure bill in recent weeks, the usually omnipresent Transportation secretary was lying low.

[quote] One of the White House’s go-to communicators didn’t appear on TV. He was absent on Capitol Hill during the negotiations over the bill he had been previously helping sell to different members of Congress. Conservative critics tried (unsuccessfully) to get #WheresPete to trend and Fox News ran a story on October 4 with the headline: “Buttigieg quiet on growing port congestion as shipping concerns build ahead of holidays.”

[quote] They didn’t previously announce it, but Buttigieg’s office told West Wing Playbook that the secretary has actually been on paid leave since mid-August to spend time with his husband, Chasten, and their two newborn babies.

[quote] “For the first four weeks, he was mostly offline except for major agency decisions and matters that could not be delegated,” said a spokesperson for the Department of Transportation. “He has been ramping up activities since then.” As he does that, Buttigieg will “continue to take some time over the coming weeks to support his husband and take care of his new children,” the spokesperson added.

Any responsible public servant wouldn't take "paid leave to spend time with his husband..." in the middle of one of the most serious shipping crises this country has ever faced.

Publicly shame him, if need be.

Yest they do, people did in fact bitch here about Phil's pumpkins, they are just a prop in the background. Besides, Phil doesn't talk about pumpkins EVERY FUCKING DAY. Or force other people to play along with stupid pumpkin quotes if they want to be on his show.

Ari needs to drop the rap thing, it's so boring.

I do wonder if many of Ari's guest talking heads, especially the older white ones, have any idea who or what he's referencing with his rap lyrics, even though some seem to nod and force a chuckle. Most often though they don't seem to even catch he's making any reference.

Of course they don't, because most white people over a certain age did not grow up with rap. They grew up with Rock and Roll and he fails to see that. That's why it's so cringy that he makes all his guest do that. It just makes them look uncomfortable and that's not really a good look for a host to put ALL his guests through that.

It would be like some nerdy Trecky forcing all of his guests to respond with their favorite quote from Star Trek the original series. Once in a blue moon is tolerable, but not every guest, every fucking night. But you know what they say, Live Long and Prosper. If not Use the Force.

R250 David Corn good naturedly countered with a situation appropriate Dylan lyric, which I thought was a nice way of handling it.

Love David Korn (sp?)!!! He's a cute hot daddy who'd be fun in bed. I'd take him over Ari any day.

I stopped watching Ari because of the rap thing.

I picture Ari doing boi-kegels on a big black butt plug during his show.

General Colin Powell is dead, now for a two-hour Nicolle Wallace laughfest!

Rest in Peace, Sir.

Rachel would have more time to actually cover events if she didn't feel the need to spend the first 15-20 minutes of her show telling about what she was going to be covering.

haha I know I'm not the only one who chuckled when Rachel referred to Manchin as "the guy who has his thumb in the dike" tonight

Vaughn's boyfriend made another appearance with him on his Instagram stories today.

I thought millennials didn't do the glass closet?

Interesting Instagram post from Vaughn back in September, when he got the "On the Road" gig with NBC:

[quote] vaughn_hillyard

[quote] In a turn of events, we’re now New York residents?? 🤷🏻‍♂️🍎 👋🏼 September 25, 2021.

To which his friend responded:

[quote] ellison.barber

[quote] yesssssss double dates double dates

Vaughn uses "we" and Ellison references "double dates," meaning he definitely has a significant other.

But I don't see any female on his page. So it's got to be the guy who is always in the photos with him.

I never really thought that Vaughn would ever be in the closet, but I guess he is.

I love Joyce Vance so much but her attempts at makeup are hilarious and a little pathetic. And so inconsistent, like she goes to a different counter in the makeup department at the Mobile, Alabama Macy's each day and has who's ever available do a test run on her. Her "smokey" eyes are over the top this morning.

Joyce, just wear your eyeglasses and be done with it. You're too smart for this nonsense.

I enjoy it. I like the suspense of not knowing which Joyce Vance will show up on camera on any particular day.

Is this thread really paywalled?

After only 269 posts?

That's ridiculous.
