MSNBC - Part 35

As Part 34 is paywalled as of yesterday I thought I'd be the first to start Part 35 - probably others to follow, if the pattern holds. One will survive.

I'd ask someone with the ability, to kindly add a link from Part 34. Thank you.

Starting things off... My recent observation is that Pete Aguilar, Congressman (D) from California, and member of the select committee, is looking a whole lot better to me as he ages. He's also got something of a chill sexy delivery. Glad that he'll be appearing more as the findings become public.

We don't know what motivates people to FF any thread, or even how many FF's it takes to grey out a thread. Someone could be upset that people who don't pay are bypassing the system by starting a new thread or they could be upset that MSNBC even exists. We don't know why our settings are reset every time we are forced to long in. At some point you just have to realize people are weird and to crazy things for reasons most of us will never understand.

The clip was Dec.2011, slightly more than 10 years ago. Josh was just starting to feel the sexy that the early days of his weight loss transformation were beginning to reveal. Woof+. I prefer the heft of present day Chris, although he could benefit from a little toning.

Chris referred to himself as appearing like a hand waving 15 year old in the clip, which is where that number came from.

MSNBC has a huge problem. The only two stars they have are Rachel and Joe Scarborough. Like Bette Davis and Joan Crawford they can’t stand eachother. The other hosts are ratings losers. Nicolle does well but she’s not a star in the way Anderson Cooper, Tucker Carlson or Rachel is.

They need better talent and giving 2 hours to Jose Diaz Balart isn’t going to solve anything.

And if Rachel was broadcasting from home, why couldn’t she just wait for her hour? Why bump Chris? DL might be right about the shade. Is her ego so big she gets to pick and choose her time slot/things she wants to cover??

MSNBC never really aspired to be a 24-hour breaking news operation like CNN (and, even, arguably Fox). They've always operated with a bare-bones staff focused almost entirely on national political analysis. Remember when the whole weekend used to be prison documentaries and Dateline reruns? When breaking news happens that isn't (directly) related to a U.S. election or a vote in Congress, they don't have the talent to handle it well. The one anchor they had who had experience anchoring breaking news (Brian Williams) has left, and I don't see his replacement (Stephanie Ruhle) taking over that role.

The entire Fox News line-up of shows beat out the rest of the competition on Monday, giving Fox the fourteen highest ranking shows on cable news.

The highest non-Fox News show was MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, guest hosted by Ali Velshi, drawing in 1.54 million total average viewers.

While that total was enough to beat out the two early morning hours of Fox & Friends, it wasn’t enough to top the third hour of the show, which brought in 1.68 million total viewers.

Tucker Carlson, The Five, and Jesse Watters were the networks’ top three shows Monday, in order.

The reason why Fox always leads in the ratings is that, until recently, they were the only network pitching Right Wing Republican "News". CNN and MSNBC pretty much has the same audience so it's often split down the middle. Not to mention the three original networks: ABC, NBC, CBS......

I saw that Newsmax has taken some of Fox viewers, but it's pretty simple.

Also, because Fox viewers are brainwashed and specifically instructed NOT to seek other news outlets, (including the NYT and WAPO), they're very loyal - to the point that if a Fox personality leaves for another network, rather than following them, they'll boycott that network out of spite. Megan Kelly, Shep Smith, and Greta Fucked-her-face are 3 examples of highly paid, highly-rated Fox hosts who got multi-million dollar deals elsewhere. It was assumed they'd bring an audience with them. Bubkiss. Fox viewers felt betrayed and refused. I think Cunt-scumbags like Tucker Carlson and Hannity know they can be successful only on Fox and no place else.

I understand that Fox is the biggest draw for right wingers but the problem is that because the CNN and MSNBC audience is split, it makes Fox #1. They therefore rake in hundreds of millions of dollars. Hannity and Carlson are some of the richest people on tv. It bothers me that you can do nothing but spew treasonous propaganda and bigotry and become rich.

by Anonymousreply 371March 17, 2022 12:01 AM

just to follow up on that point, I really think with the Murdoch family, Fox producers, hosts and contributors, it's all about the money. They've learned the more they lean into propaganda and bigotry, the higher their ratings are so the more money they get. That means there's never an incentive to stop. It's infuriating that they are allowed to call themselves a news network but then act so irresponsibly. If people stopped watching them, they'd change their narratives. The point is news should not be about narratives but rather actual facts. The poison that Fox and other right wing outlets have injected into our country is just unforgivable

even if most of the country is not watching Fox, their false narratives are still so influential. Look what happened in 2016. The fact that Hillary became such a despised figure was because Trump and other repub politicians took their cues from the propaganda on Fox and coming out of the Kremlin. The Kremlin, right wing media and repub party are all in sync. The impact is thus bigger than just the regular Fox audience. It spreads online and then Democrats must defend against it. It doesn't help when some in the mainstream media "both sides" everything and treat it with respect either.

Keith Olbermann Lobbied MSNBC to Have Him Replace Chris Hayes: ‘Your 8 p.m. Show Is Dying of Thirst During a Flood’

Keith Olbermann reportedly lobbied hard for another stint at MSNBC in recent years and wanted to return to the network at the expense of Chris Hayes.

The Daily Beast reported Monday that Olbermann politicked for a gig filling in for Rachel Maddow during her hiatus. She used her veto power to keep him away.

The far-left Twitter personality appeared to confirm the report on Twitter:

According to Puck News, the thrice fired face of three different TV networks was in talks with NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell for another round at MSNBC.

Per Puck’s Dylan Byers, Olbermann really wanted Hayes’ time slot, which he said was dragging down MSNBC in primetime.

After using his relationship with Shell to establish a line of communication during former President Donald Trump’s term, Olbermann lobbied for a job.

An email exchange between the pair began in December of 2019. On Feb. 25, 2020, a dinner between them was scheduled for April of 2020.

Byers reported,

Two days later, on February 27, Olbermann sent Shell a lengthy, unsolicited email offering his thoughts on the challenges that MSNBC faced and the opportunities the network had to boost ratings and generate more revenue

In a roughly 5,000-word dissertation-style email, complete with attached appendices demonstrating his research, Olbermann laid out a detailed and acerbic diagnosis of the cable news landscape and MSNBC’s troubles. He noted, for instance, that while Maddow’s ratings in the coveted 25-to-54 year-old demo were up 81percent from 2010, ratings for Chris Hayes’ show at 8 p.m.—Olbermann’s former time slot—were only up 3 percent. “There’s only one conclusion to be drawn: MSNBC is woefully underperforming in prime time,” he wrote. “And, while it is hidden by the amount of money [The Rachel Maddow Show] makes for you, the current 8 p.m. hour is the cause.”

Olbermann reportedly said, “Your 8 p.m. show is dying of thirst during a flood.”

Indeed, Hayes’ show is not a magnet for viewers, overall or in the key demo, even now.

All In is routinely wedged in between AC360 on CNN and Stinchfield on Newsmax TV.

Despite this reality, Olbermann’s dreams for another run at MSNBC were dashed. Olbermann would not unseat Hayes, even as his numbers dragged the network down.

Olbermann and MSNBC never reconciled. That was in spite of an email he sent to Shell last year in which he blasted CNN hosts Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon for making their shows “about themselves.”

“I’d like to bury them for you. And for mankind,” Olbermann said.

Olbermann told Puck News on Wednesday he is “disappointed” in Shell.

“The Jeff Shell I knew had courage and wasn’t bullied by people who depended on him for a paycheck,” Olbermann said. “I understand it’s a huge company, but he did involve himself in this and there was never anything but encouragement from him about bringing me back to the network. And this attempt to gaslight everybody is not only beneath a major communications company like NBC and its chairman, but it’s not even been done very well. Especially when I have an endless supply of receipts.”

I would think the person Olbermann would be most pissed at is Joy Reid, for stealing - sorry - "appropriating" his "Worst Person in the World" segment.

Get rind of homophobic Joy, bring back Olbermann. Problem solved.

I second R376's motion.

I'll bet Joy gets the lowest ratings of the entire MSNBC lineup.

I can't imagine that anyone watches her show.

Olbermann is not the answer to the problems. He's off-putting.

There is no need to wonder on March 15 the latest ratings available at this time at Mediaite Joy Reid's hour had worse ratings than FOX and CNN at that hour, and worse ratings than the rest of the evening line up from Nicolle at 4PM until Ruhle at 11PM who's ratings Joy beat. Joy does beat the entire daytime line up at MSNBC including Morning Joe.

What I don’t understand is Jose Diaz Balart. He was on MSNBC years ago and was let go and inexplicably was brought back with a plum position and his ratings and demo are worse than anyone else at any time on all three networks. Why did they bring him back when he was awful the first time?

Also the reporting is Chuck Todd is likely to possibly replace Rachel at 9pm. Why is he being given this position when he is failing at his regular time slot.

Why is MSNBC obsessed with self sabotage?

The new head honcho used to be at Telemundo, which where JDB was, so think there is a connection.

He normally would do the weekends for Lester Holt, but maybe Shepherd Smith will be the real 6:30 heir.

Rashida is MSNBC, Jose’s friend is Universal Comcast.

Thanks, R389.

Looks like Jose has some pretty powerful friends.

Still, it's not a good business decision if he can't bring in the ratings.

Only the National Enquirer is saying that, which has then been amplified on DL and other places. There is no "reporting" that Chuck Todd will replace Rachel.

For diversity. I think they wanted to add a Hispanic to the daily lineup. But yeah, it was an odd move, especially since he's in his 60s, not exactly a ratings draw, and already had a good gig anchoring the Saturday NBC Nightly News and Telemundo's nightly news show. I doubt there were any MSNBC viewers demanding, "More Jose Diaz-Balart please!"

Did tptb at MSNBC know the direction Joy was going to take her show? She can turn literally anything into a race issue. It's too much 5 days a week. She is better in small doses. I'd love to see Olbermann take her spot.

Mika was on a stupid toot this morning (between sighs) saying NATO appeared weak by not getting more involved in Ukraine. Admiral Kelly nicely put her in her place. Joe didn't marry her for her intellect, so I guess her talents lay elsewhere.
