On the Part 31 thread, R270 asks whether that thread is really paywalled and says it's "ridiculous" after only 269 posts.
I'm a non-subscriber and I see at the bottom of Part 31 a blue banner that says: "Only subscribers can post to this thread. Click Here to update your subscription information." I assume that subscribers like R270 don't see that banner.
As for why threads get paywalled when they're nowhere near being full, I think it's DL's way of "encouraging" people to subscribe, or else they won't be able to post on popular threads.

At which point, I just said "Yes, please" while glaring (politely, I hope).

It is worth repeating, but Jose Diaz-Balart needs to go. I understand the "diversity" play going on at MSNBC these days, but can't we get a different "hard news from a Latin angle" person to deliver it?
Today, I lasted all of 30 seconds with him on the TV as I turned it on and tried to get Morning Joe to play off the DVR. He was signing off of an interview then segued into a quick tease about Queen Elizabeth. Mind you, Jose is the man who can easily breeze through Hispanic and Latin names and accents, as well as vociferously debate issues concerning his audience, BUT HE CLEARLY CAN'T COMPREHEND something as bland, white-as-Wonder-bread and privileged as the British Monarch and sounds like an idiot trying to deal with it.

I saw him today on the 3:00pm segment and his Khakis/Pants/Slacks looked the same to me, not tighter than usual. A colostomy bag is an option during election sweeps as he can remain on set for HOURS and not have to leave the big board. I would imagine it would be a closed set should he be so equipped.

It is odd that The Gap names a pant style after a color and then offers other colors. Khaki is the color of dust in South Asian.
The Gap "Khakis" are a twill chino that comes in non-khakis colors.
What Kornacki wears are Palomino Brown twill chinos that are called Khakis by Gap.
I find the Lands End article informative.

Maddow told an absolute whopper last night. She did a long bit about the USPS suspending service to Australia and made a bit about President Biden not being able to send a Thank-you note after the G-20. At no point did she say that service was suspended due to the enormous spike in COVID cases in Australia during the month of October. Also, diplomatic mail is not suspended; so, President Biden could send a Thank-You note. This really is beneath her.

Mika needs to stop already, going on a rant non stop about how you should never point a gun at anyone even on a movie set. God, she is dim. It's a freaking western movie with gun fights. Baldwin was no horsing around apparently he was practicing the move before the shot. (no pun intended) What is us supposed to do pull out a light saber? Trying to shift the blame away from the dumb girl who handed him the gun?
Face it, Joe and Mika, it's not Baldwins fault, it was some stupid pee on. We know you want to riff on Hollywood, but it's just not the case. Actors are not responsible for the props they are given. Everyone heard the guy call out COLD gun. If only you were so on point when you were licking the boots of Trump over Hillary until you had your little spat and turned on him.
Sorry but that stupid 24 year old girl should go to jail if it was her fault. Any doubt if it was a young guy there would be a question? Plus she said she was very familiar with guns all her life.

Yes, even her legal experts were telling Mika that but she's trying to shift the narrative away from the stupid 24 year old and black Baldwin. Even her own TV experts said on set is the one place in America where it's ok to point a gun at someone. It's make believe not reality. The actor is not expected to know how to handle or firearm, it's suppose to be a prop. They are supposed to relying on the experts on set.
But Mika is as dim as that 24 year old bimbo. She just doesn't understand how a young woman could make a mistake like that and it not be the fault of a famous actor instead. " I just don't understand, explain that to me again, how is the actor not be responsible..." Because he was told it was a cold gun Mika, get it through your head, dozens of witnesses.

She knows better, what she is really trying to do is set up a straw man argument to take the spot light off the real person responsible, a 24 year old woman who was not qualified or cared enough to do her job resulting in deadly consequences.

R227 Black women’s hair issues is a whole topic but basically their scalps don’t make oil which makes their hair brittle and dry and prone to breaking off, which is exacerbated by the chemical straighteners some of them use and the pulled-too-tight braids and weaves they wear. Joy Reid’s natural hairline is exhibit A of this.
|by Anonymous||reply 231||October 31, 2021 11:44 PM|
The scalp makes oil, but by the nature of the hair, the oil doesn't travel down the shaft like it does for straight hair. The hair grows, like for other ethnicities, six inches per year. And of course, there are some people who grow a little more or a little less than. Just adding onto r231 response.

Joy kept saying you have to fight, fight, fight and Nicole responded that public fighting within the party is dangerous.

With Rachel and Brian both leaving their nightly gigs, I imagine that Chris Hayes and Ari Melber will seize the opportunity ("I'm MSNBC's star anchor now!") to demand more air time and more money. And I imagine that the network will say no to both of them and tell them to stay in their current slots at their current pay. I could see one or both of them leaving, too, especially if MSNBC shuns them in favor of bringing in someone new to replace either Rachel or Brian.

This tells me that something is seriously wrong with the leadership at MSNBC. Meaning: Rashida Jones.
Brian and Rachel are the leading talent at the network. She lost Brian, and she almost lost Rachel. She also lost Kasie Hunt, who was a young up-and-comer.
The woman clearly doesn't know what the fuck she's doing.
If this many people want to jump ship, it really doesn't bode well for the network.
Instead of hiring an unqualified Millennial/AA/Female just to check off all the "woke" boxes, the powers that be should have hired someone who could actually DO the job.
This really sucks.

[quote] Rashida wrote in a note to staff "Mr. Williams has informed us he would like to take the coming months to spend time with his family.” Makes it sound like he got canned.
It reminds me of scene from the movie "Deep Impact," where "Secretary Rittenhouse" resigned from the President's Cabinet because he learned that an asteroid was going to smash into the earth.
I wonder if Brian knows something we don't?
Like we're about to have an ELE (Extinction Level Event). It makes no sense for him to leave.

I have to add that the Morning Joe format was what drew me in from the very beginning.
I loved the round table discussion, because it was so lively and fun. Joe was a total nutcase back then (he still is, but he used to be much worse), and Mika was a total doormat. They used to be very hostile to each other, and he would be.... I would almost say abusive, to her. Willie would not dare get in the middle of their fights.
Joe attracted the best guests from the very beginning. Between he and Mika, they were able to attract MARQUEE names from the Washington political scene. It was like must-see tv.
Another fun aspect was that because it was the 2007-2008 election cycle, they would go to New Hampshire, and Iowa, and other Primary Election sites, then on to the Convention sites, and they would occupy bars and restaurants, and have a live audience. It was amazing.
There was such a buzz and an energy surrounding the show.
Then came the election and Inauguration, and I'll always remember how excited I was watching Morning Joe on Inauguration Day 2009, and Joe and Mika were so excited, and all the guests were excited, and they showed the people running to get a spot in the viewing area, then the morning church service, and meeting at the White House, and the motorcade to the capital, and the introductions of all the former Presidents, the swearing-in, and finally the George W. Bush send off.
Those were some good times.
So yeah, I'd be very sad to see Morning Joe move to evenings, if it ever happened.
I don't think it would be the same, particularly because a lot of his big name guests all seem to be morning people.

Forget the part that when she wrote those posts, it was a different time and that was the language. Some of you sound like those people who complain about Friends being homophobic. It was the 90s. And it was Joy's blog that first got her attention from the mainstream media.
Did you even really listen to what Joy said. Her apology?
She handled it poorly, no doubt about that, but what she said was that she did not recognize the person who wrote those posts. Probably because she is not the same person who wrote those posts. For those of you who write, have you looked at your past writing and wondered how you could have written such mess.
I just wish that some of you were just honest why you don't like Joy. If you say you don't like her because she was a homophobe, I can respect. But I can't respect someone who says she is a homophobe. Because she isn't, not now. And no one can point to one thing that would back up any claim that she is a homophobe now.

Calm your jets, Pete Fangurl. It's highly understandable why Joy would come at him a little harder than Rachel given his abysmal race relations when he was the mayor of South Bend. Oh, and, reality check, he still wouldn't throw you a look if he were single and you were the last two people on Earth.

I find Joy very informative and entertaining, and she is the bright, shiny, jangling ring of keys that is most able to combat Fox's echo chamber of blonds and frat boys.
I like that she is between WigAriX and Chris Hayes. The whole post Halle Jackson schedule is brilliant.

Why hasn’t Joy ever admitted that she made up the “hacked blog” story and also that she lied to the FBI, Joy’s fan club member who is all over this thread disparaging white gay men? If she’s such an amazing person, why has she never come clean about that?

R505, Exactly! She wasn't the only Rhodes Scholar in town.
She was so smug about the whole coming thing. She thought she was better than him because she came out at an earlier age than he did. But, it's much easier for a woman to come out than a man and coming out is a personal decision anyway. He handled her questions well, but her pettiness very uncomfortable.
Maybe, like Pete, she always dreamed of running for office but didn't have the courage he did to actually do it. Still a great achievement, but all she'll ever be is a TV pundit while he's part of a successful Presidential cabinet who made history.

No, not a lovefest R510, but she was respectful and it was a somewhat dry interview. She let him speak and only tried to interrupt twice. When he starts talking about how infrastructure will help brown and black people, you can see her tense up a bit, like he has no right to talk about those issues and she wants to challenge him, but she held back.

Christie had lap-band surgery back in 2013 (or thereabouts) and his weight did decline some but he was still large. There was a special on CNN where Dana Bash interviewed him and they were walking down some boardwalk (in NJ?). I swear he looked like a hot air balloon in slacks and should he pursue any kind of presidential run, his girth is sure to take center stage. He's trying to make some coin off his book but it's contents can't be any more than we all lived through over the past Five years with the Orange Skidmark!
