Phil's nice and smart, though his voice is a little lightweight. But then again, NYC Local Channel 2 has Maurice DuBois, whose voice sounds kind of like the equivalent of cotton candy.

When MSNBC goes looking for new hosts I hope they consider Jen Psaki, current White House press secretary. She has said that she won't be staying much longer than a year at the White House. I am not saying she deserves the top spot that Rachel holds but since they will probably move someone currently at MSNBC into that spot they will need to back fill, they should consider Jen.

Really R137? She seems to be a very serious person who doesn't ever let loose, but I never thought that she may be in some kind of pain. Are you thinking mental or physical?

Jen Psaki would be a BRILLIANT anchor for MSNBC! I'd never miss her show.

Yes, Hillary's styling was not great (bad hair and makeup and was that a windbreaker she had on?) but she was so brilliant with Rachel, who cares?

With this just-ended segment on Thanksgiving being a day of mourning for the Indigenous community, are Joy & her producers secretly working for the GQP?!

Nice idea about Jen Psaki, but she was a CNN contributor before being given that job. CNN might have first dibs on her.

MSNBC had a reporter Claudio Lavanga who I had never seen before today, reporting from Rome with a sexy thick Italian accent but apparently he has been around since at least 2015.

I'd watch Jen Psaki on CNN. I don't care which channel she's on if she's got her own show.

Is MSNBC closed on Thanksgiving?


It looked like the network was playing "paid programming" all day.

MSNBC wants to be a top news network but gives all their major anchors two or three days off for Thanksgiving. News doesn't stop on holidays.

The Jen Psaki adulation is hilarious. The woman is an idiot.

And she's quite off-putting, R149.

I find her cold and abrasive.

I wouldn't watch a show with Jen Psaki.

by Anonymousreply 150November 27, 2021 3:25 AM

She is skilled with her information, skilled at dealing with "gotcha" reporters, skilled at making idiots out them in public.

She is GENIUS!

She is hated by the right because she does what all of Trump's Pressers wanted to do, WITHOUT LYING.

[quote] Is MSNBC closed on Thanksgiving? Lol. It looked like the network was playing "paid programming" all day.

They aired a "Deadline White House" with Nicolle Wallace that was pre-recorded and featured excerpts from previously aired interviews from the past few months (basically a "Best of" retrospective), but the graphic at the bottom of the screen still labeled it all as "BREAKING NEWS."

Morning Joe did the same thing with past interviews this morning but at least they were upfront about them being previously recorded.

Fox's straight-shooting Chris Wallace, who's been around a long time, including his years as WH correspondent for NBC during the Reagan years, has called her one of the best WH press secretaries ever.

MSNBC should recruit Chris Wallace. He’s a legit journalist.

Best that he stay at Fox, R156. As much as it pains them, Fox viewers need to hear the truth sometimes.

[quote]They aired a "Deadline White House" with Nicolle Wallace

Will someone explain to me Nicolle Wallace's show?

EVERY time I tune in to it she's talking about three things: Trump, "The Big Lie", and January 6th.

It's the same stuff repeated over and over, day in and day out. It's like she's trapped in a time loop. How can anyone sit through it. Who is the audience for that? She's like an autistic kid who's focused on one thing and can't shut up about it.

OK, January 6th is important and any new info or progress needs to be reported, but it was nearly a year ago and other things are on people's minds right now. It's as if she's got nothing else.

And we all know how horrible Trump is.

Nicolle dear, we got it already.

R158, that's her schtick and it's all she's got to offer MSNBC's liberal audience: disenchanted Republican whining about how the GOP let her down. She's also very pretty but looks don't last forever, even on TV.

She's raising the alarm daily, as are most of her guests. Because if shit goes sideways in '22 or '24 we are doomed. And enough people are not getting that.

by Anonymousreply 161November 27, 2021 9:39 PM

Nicolle's interview with Chris Christie was pretty good; she gets good guests in the afternoon time slot she has. And as much as I hate to say it, I think Brian Williams is going to leave a pretty big hole after he exits. Despite his smarmy demeanor, he attracts good guests as well.

They need to replace that braying Tiffany Cross!! After they kick Joy Reid to the curb - HARD!

Joy and Tiffany will be even more important at MSNBC, as it gets remade by Rashida Jones.

by Anonymousreply 163November 27, 2021 10:12 PM

R162 - Her interview (Grilling!) of Crispy Christie was delicious to watch. He is slippery but she held his feet to the fire and didn't let up.

Some time ago (early 2016) I heard an NPR broadcast where one of the guests suggested that someone on Trump's campaign should replace his self tanning lotion with Barbecue Sauce and wait for him to stand dangerously close to Chris Christie! It was quite funny at the time. I hope his book flops.

Just a thought about which I'm not even sure, but it's a thought...

Joe Scarborough takes the Brian Williams slot. And MSNBC figures out someone else to host with Mika for Morning Joe.

Haha I found some funny footage of Nicole Wallace speaking for the McCain campaign on election night 2008:

At the 45 second mark: "It 'aint over 'til it's over!"

I like Nicolle but her recent facelift (or whatever she had done) and her Melania hair extensions aren't working. I think Michael Steele could be a good host.

Nicolle wiping her sculpted ass with Chris Christie's book, will go down in the histories of Republican on Republican interviews.

The interview that killed a political career AND a book promo tour.

by Anonymousreply 173November 28, 2021 2:02 PM

R169, R170 OMG you really are idiotic if you actually think that clip hurts Nicolle Wallace in any way and know nothing about being a campaign spokesperson. As campaign spokesperson you never get out in front of where your candidate is on anything. You could find the same type of comments for the spokesperson of every losing candidate, you don't give up before your candidate does if you ever want to work a campaign again. You also won't find the campaign spokesperson declare victory before the candidate does.

I want to say nice try on your part though, but I can't because it wasn't.

[quote] The interview that killed a political career

Christie's political career was already moribund. So Nicole (hopefully) did to him what Christie - flailing in the '16 GOP primaries - himself did to Marco Rubio, someone who might otherwise have been able to coalesce republican opposition to Trump when it was still possible, on his way out.

The Yaz had Tara Setmayer on during the 4 o'clock hour and she really laid Lil Kevin McCarthy out for filth. She basically said she'd loan him her 'pair' since he doesn't seem to have any based on his fealty to DUMP and his followers. He ain't gonna be no speaker of any house unless he buys his own microphone!
