Giving a brief a heartfelt nonpartisan non-political entirely non-political holidays feature in the has put out word that they're going to send the president to give a Christmas speech or a holiday speech want to soon as they're speaking euphemistically. What they really mean is a Victory lap. Joe Biden has had a lot of political accomplishments in the course of the last two years. He's had extraordinarily good midterm, even President Zelinsky here yesterday something that Joe Biden could easily brag about in a fulsome way, about keeping the Western Alliance together of helping, Ukraine against Russia, none of that in the speech. Here, there's a long tradition of presidents about to head off on the Christmas or the holiday break. Joe Biden are revved up Brock Obama who would do a press conference or a brief speech? Followed by a press conference, almost every holiday season. Before he headed off to Hawaii and other presidents in the past have done a similar kind of thing. When I expected a little bit from that traps today, of Joe Biden may be taking some questions to the Press Corps. But certainly having a speech that was Themes and filled with at least some oblique references, the politics and policy. None of that here with the about the exception of Biden's frequent traditional well-known paean trying to visit aspiration that they'll partisan bitterness and toxicity be leached out of our politics that when it returned to a more forgiving politics and more pragmatic politics, a politics that lives more at the center rather than on the polarized edges. Joe Biden did say that he hoped that I would happen over this holiday season. I think he knows well enough. Even as he says that it's very unlikely to happen or this holiday season, let alone maybe not anytime anytime soon in the foreseeable future. But that is a speech that almost node American no matter what their political persuasion is, will find it very much to criticize, although you never know on Fox News. That's what we got to see from Joe Biden here today in this holiday speech. How many minutes was that guys? In the control room, how many minutes did he talk? Nine minutes only nine minutes and that. And that is it after the mangos and having made the point that I would love to have a conversation and try to see if there was any other kind of a political agenda that was being pursued here. That that eludes me but I think really that was Joe Biden really just being Joe Biden. And try to speak to and is most kind of nostalgic and heartfelt to the spirit of the season.

Again, Yamiche already hosts a weekly roundtable show (Washington Week on PBS), which is a high-profile gig and one that carries prestige. Granted, there is no bitchy humor on Washington Week. And she reports for NBC News. She probably reaches a larger audience in those roles than she would hosting an hour or two during the day on MSNBC. Not sure why she would give up either role, unless MSNBC offered her a prime-time slot.

Stephanie is usually an impressive interviewer and master of the follow-up question, but I thought her interview with Boebert was weak.

She let Boebert drone on too long and didn't drill down into the specifics of what this Taliban 20 want.

Granted, interviewing Lauren Boebert is like interviewing a plastic bag in the wind, but Stephanie seemed a bit out of her depth tonight. Not a look I'm used to seeing from her.

And, r256, Mike actually wore a jacket and tie the other day. I guess it was on Monday. Also, that's not a hoodie, there's no hood.

Heilemann announced he's taking a hiatus from his podcast, Hell & High Water, to be back "after the holidays", reruns in the interim.

As far as I know, Nicolle has never declared their marriage on DLWH. I would think the network would require it, in order to be transparent about any possible conflict of interest. Plus it's nothing to be secretive about.

I've written here before that Mike Schmidt's onscreen persona is so odd to my sown sensibilities that I suspect that he may be somewhere on the "spectrum." His wardrobe choice, almost silly in how it reminds me of a required school uniform, is a part of that oddness factor.

And, as has already been said here, I cannot picture him together with Nicolle!

Speaking of Schmidt, what was up with his hair yesterday? The part was out of it's normal place and the texture of the hair was somehow different; i.e. more course.

You sound utterly obsessed with Mike Schmidt, r262. Better have that checked out with your therapist soon.

by Anonymousreply 263January 18, 2023 4:15 PM

^^^ Not so much obsesses with but rather in seeing Schmidt on air 3 or 4 times per week, his oddness is hard to overlook.

Schmidt stands out single-handedly among the range of guests seen on MSNBC as perhaps the most awkward and stunted in his manner and delivery of speech.

FYI: Don't bother providing me with your therapist as a favor though, as they've obviously not done you any favors.

I don’t know, I think he’s kind of cute but was shocked when I read about him and Nicolle.

R259, I, too, am surprised that they are not required to disclose the fact that they are married whenever he appears on her show, at least when he’s on to promote a book he’s written given that she as his spouse also benefits from its success.

by Anonymousreply 265January 18, 2023 4:54 PM

I don't find Mike particularly odd. He may not be as polished as a lot of their contributors but he is a great reporter, constantly breaking news for the NY Times where he writes. I guess he's a better investigative reporter/writer than on camera speaker. But I think he just looks like an ordinary (somewhat) handsome straight guy. And I know thousands of them who wear those zipped sweaters...no big deal if he doesn't wear a tie and jacket on air. What difference does it make?

All that said, it is peculiar that Nicolle doesn't disclose he's her husband in her introduction.

MSNBC is so serious

MSNBC columnist and New York University professor Ruth Ben-Ghiat opined that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was “so dangerous in every way” and “authoritarian” after he recommended that students be prevented from using their phones during class at a press conference.

“Why are these kids on their phones during class all the time?” asked DeSantis, before suggesting that schools have students “leave their phone in some cubby or something, go sit in class and learn” before returning the phones at recess.

“They should not be on their phones being distracted from the lessons,” he concluded.

Ben-Ghiat said this was further evidence of his “authoritarian personality,” prompting mockery from a number of conservatives, including DeSantis’s deputy press secretary Jeremy Redfern, who said he hoped she could “find peace during this difficult time.”

Yay! Suze Orman was in the house today speaking with Mika. They were talking about women over fifty and preparing for a recession while preparing for retirement. I love the dig Mika gave her (paraphrasing a bit) :

"You started your dream when you were over fifty, and here you are - DECADES LATER - and you became a success. Did you ever think you'd be where you are at this age now ?"

Poor Suze gritted her teeth and stuck out her jaw as she tried to smile. She's only 71, yet Mika made it sound like she's 90 when she says 'decades later' from when she was in her fifties.

BTW - Ormon suggests everyone invest in T-Bills right now, for three months or six months. She said the interest is very good on them, and they are more reliable than the stock market these days. She does not recommend more than a six month investment - three months is ideal, and then you can re-invest for another three months.

However, at the height of my nervous breakdown due to Donald John Trump, I was glued to MSNBC every night and it was a kind of therapy - and about the only thing that helped me stay sane. That there were talking heads who could HELP me through what felt like a Hitler cum Bolsonaro cum Duterte cum Kim Jong Un nightmare. I've needed time away so back to France and Germany...

But with the Supreme Court and R House takeoever, I have a feeling I'll be needing that therapy again soon. Nice to have a a reprieve though. What good is factual news when you're country is almost literally imploding?

The only answer is voting. MSNBC provides a constant stream of information as to why that is critically important. They've clearly got a mission. But you can't say they don't deliver news.

If you don't find it interesting, if you need more pop culture coverage, there are other options. It's very simple.

If you like NBC/MSNBC personalities and want news, turn to NBC News Now. Unless there is something dramatic going on in the world, that is where I go now.

by Anonymousreply 552February 1, 2023 11:25 PM

R551 If MSNBC devotes 90 percent of its coverage to Trump, that means a lot of news goes uncovered, and not just pop culture stories. They cover Trump so much because a lot of viewers apparently like getting stirred up. Like Fox News, MSNBC thrives on stirring up the base. The Trump presidency created enough anxiety for me, and I could not wait for them to move on to other important stories. They never did, so I moved on.

We had Trump in office for years on end and he still won't go away, r556. He's still going to be in the news whether you like it or not. There's also Ukraine, Tyre Nichols, McCarthy and the House, etc. Sorry if the ongoing investigations and lawsuits and counting down to indictments annoys you, but...it's legitimate news that people are and should be interested in.

by Anonymousreply 558February 2, 2023 12:15 AM

R558 But the media bears some of the responsibility for Trump not going away. Trump drives ratings. If the media had treated him like any other former president and stopped covering him, he probably would have faded away a long time ago. You can cover important Trump stories without the constant endless breathless coverage that has come to define MSNBC.

by Anonymousreply 559February 2, 2023 12:28 AM

Agreed, r559. Though I wouldn't call the coverage breathless at this point.

The Kia K5 and Hyundai Sonata are rated highly on Consumer Reports.

You get a loaded K5 with all wheel drive and a sunroof for under $32k.

Beware though-Kia and Hyundai dealers are notorious for being assholes. If you choose it, I would suggest using a buying service like Costco or AAA.

Hallie Jackson ended her show by saying that Antony Blinken was about to give a press conference about the Chinese spy balloon and his cancelled trip to China. She said Nicolle would pick up the live coverage. Cut to Nicolle, who says nothing about the balloon or the press conference and instead spends the first 30 minutes of the show on the latest Trump and 1/6-related craziness with her "favorite friends" Carol Leonnig and Tim Miller. I like Nicolle, and I'm glad she's holding Trump and the GOP accountable, but must she begin every show with the latest news from Trump land?

R571 She eventually covered the China story in the first hour. She had her panel of guests lined up for discussion of election denialists (not really 1/6). Only one of those guests was scheduled to remain and comment on the China story. I imagine those logistics along and her production team determined in what order the topics were covered.

I'm very glad that Nicolle and MSNBC in general are obsessed with saving democracy in this country - for which what happened on 1/6 was only the wake-the-fuck-up moment.

I agree R571. I routinely watch Nicole, but today I had enough of her obsession with 1/6. She has become obsessed with throwing Trump's fat ugly ass in prison. Now as thrilling as that would be, she needs to spend more time on non-Trump news. She says that too much press is given to Trump and his followers in Congress then turns around and repeatedly opens her show with MAGA stories.

by Anonymousreply 581February 4, 2023 2:30 AM


When other events occur - the war in Ukraine, police brutality, mass shootings, general election politics, a football player having a coronary - then they take precedence.

The show has an agenda. They prioritize news according to it. That should be clear by now.

It's also what her audience (including me) wants to see. It's not going to change unless her ratings do.

It was just a very awkward transition when Hallie Jackson said Nicolle would be continuing MSNBC's coverage with Antony Blinken's press conference, and then Nicolle didn't air the press conference live and didn't even mention the China story until 30 minutes into her show. (CNN aired the press conference live.)

I'm not a fan of Nicolle Wallace at all. Whenever I watch her she sounds like a high school senior cheerleader who took over the PA system in the principal's office. I can only tolerate so much of her in the afternoon.

That said, I don't mind that she starts each show with coverage of the Janaury 6 insurrection. Let's face it - Trump and his MAGATs caused an insurrection, and is still a danger to our country. He's now running for President again and has his millions of followers. Kudos to her to remind Americans every day of that horrific attempt to overthropw our government on January 6 - and she should cover it every single day until he's brought to justice.

Saw a few things I missed. Really liked it.

Mostly because it isn't that fucking, droning, murder fest called Dateline that MSNBC uses as filler. I think it is brilliant that Rashida is hi lighting the Weekly Best of Morning Joe and not paying NBC for the Dateline crapfest.
