Merging that with a professional/collegial relationship could be creepy, but it comes off as sweet and unaffected.

Since then she has had no 'break out moments' in her Vice Presidency, nothing for Dems to cheer her on and put the spotlight on her, and laughs like a jackass at no matter what anyone says.

You are misremembering, R108. Obama's entire first term DL ravens pecked out both Obama's and Biden's livers out each day, for four years.
Forgive me if you're still around, but I recall very clearly Dame Celestia Crackhead and David Ehrenstine (sp?) whaling incessantly on POTUS/VPOTUS from the time they won the nomination all the way to 2012. And those are just the two I remember by name/handle. It was exhausting.
But to be fair, outlets like MSNBC (especially Olbermann, Maddow, and that big red guy who ended up working for Al-Jazerra), Daily Kos, Slater, Glenn Greenwald, Glen Ford, The Young Turks (esp Cenk Uyghur), and Bill Fucking Maher CONSTANTLY saying shit like "He needs to MAN UP and handle this!" And constantly moved the goalposts when Obama did do what they wanted that day: "Yeah, we got the ACA, but what about DADT?" That was overturned, then it was "What about gay marriage? He's a homophobe, you know, just like the rest of Black America!" Like they were wanting him to whip out his BBC and start whipping the GOP with it, or going apeshit in public. Just racist as fuck.
And on and on. So please stop looking at 2008-2012 DL through the Doris Day lens filter.

Speaking of Andrea Mitchell, there is an episode from way back when in which she was interviewed on air by Don Imus during his show in which he asked about her role in the Valerie Plame leak investigation.
The answer she gave him under his intense question has always bugged me because I closely followed the Valerie Plame leak story during the Bush Administration and it was obvious that there was both criminal wrongdoing and also negligence at work when the name of Ms. Plame name was leaked to the press. And Andrea does not come out looking good there!

Nicolle's show has been my one "record every day" MSNBC program for about 2 years.
About a year ago her show doubled to a 2 hour time frame.
On beyond the issue of the now too lengthy time period, I'm currently struggling mightily with the show content and skipped most of it today because I saw how it began (again) with all sorts of supposition and guesswork about what this latest round of Cohen testimony involved or what this or that reporting showed us could be happening, etc.. blah blah blah..
I was in and out of the room a few times while my partner watched the episode. Via such passing, I heard Nicolle or a guest say "...we don't know..." or variations of that phraseology I don't know how many times!
And to make it not only redundant but mind-numbingly irritating to listen to, we had Andrew Weissmann doing his best of the Weissmann brand of bad vocal fry as per his norm.
Jeesh! Get a grip on this crap, MSNBC! Tell me when YOU KNOW SOMETHING or WHEN SOMETHING NEW DOES HAPPEN! If all you have to offer on Nicolle's show is guesswork and filler content, cut the program length back!
I went through all of the "...Muller knows where the bodies are buried..." stuff with Ari and Rachel, et al and years earlier agonized as I expectantly waited through the leak investigation prompted during the Bush Administration when Valerie Plame's identity as a CIA agent was intentionally leaked. We all expected that justice would be served when prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald was appointed to lead a federal investigation. We thought the scum who connived together on that would all be brought down. But no. Only Scooter Libby, v.p. dickhead cheney's chief of staff went down for the crime and the dickhead and the other corrupt ones skated.
The bottom line for me in my now further advanced years and state of mind is: DON"T STRING ME ALONG WITH g'damned GUESSWORK! BRING ME THE FACTS ONLY!

These shows are for liberal politics groupies. They eat that stuff up and never get tired of hearing about it, even when there's absolutely nothing new to say. It's a very niche audience, just like the Golf Channel is purely for golfers. For everyone else, it's impossibly tedious. But there's apparently enough of those groupies to keep their ratings high enough that advertisers are content.
I tune in from time to time to see various eye candy (I like to see if Chris Hayes has bulked up any more or if he's gotten his carb issues under control) but that takes five minutes and then I turn it off. I can't imagine listening to several hours of people speculating about Trump's legal troubles or January 6 prosecutions for the umpteenth time.

And to his credit, Ralston held the line against the tRUMPian interference and refused to go along with what tRUMP wanted done.

R385 That's what I thought, but after a search found that the previous grand jury was a "special case investigative" grand jury. They can recommend to Willis whether to bring charges. If she agrees, then she needs a regular grand jury to seek the actual indictments, which sounds like more of a formality.
Then comes the trial jury, the one that counts.

What is a special purpose grand jury? A special purpose grand jury is seated to investigate one topic and has no time limit. It can subpoena witnesses, unlike a regular grand jury, but can’t indict someone. Instead, it makes a recommendation to prosecutors on whether to move forward with charges.
A regular grand jury is seated for a set amount of time and hears a wide range of cases. It ultimately can issue an indictment.

The beginning of each block of Morning Joe today included a declaration of each guest/contributor’s Irish bona fides. It started to get super-cringey watching Joe insist Mara Gay was Irish, leaving her to explain her heritage. It was all just a bunch of “my (fill-in-the-ancestor)’s name was…”. Eyeroll

Cohen wouldn't answer no matter how many different ways she asked, getting rather angry she kept asking. He turned the interview around and Katie gave up on asking about Stormy.
Lawrence O was just a phone-in, and he sounded a bit exhausted from St. Paddy's day.

Jonathan can be totally annoying for the reasons stated above, and also for his insistence on referencing everyone by stating their occupation before his or her name (FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE Clinton, MAJORITY WHIP Clyburn, etc.). It's sort of customary for journalists to do that, but he makes it a point to do it every time. I wanted to hurl something at the TV this morning when he kept saying SPEAKER McCarthy. How about just saying "Kevin McCarthy?" If anyone is not worthy of the title of Speaker, it's that asshole.

I get the feeling Jonathan is constantly being barraged in his ear phone by his producers to help guide through segments but instead of helping, it just trips him up. I can't think of another MSNBC anchor, even a substitute anchor who performs so badly on air. I'm sure he's very smart and a good guy but he's just not cut out for the job. And he's not improving. Today he even seemed worse than usual.

[quote] He's not a news anchor - his role at MSNBC is a political show host / political commentator.
The line separating news anchor from host/commentator is becoming fuzzier all the time. When there is breaking news, "hosts" and "commentators" like Capeheart have to become de facto news anchors, and many of them suck at it because they have no training or experience in anchoring a newscast. It used to be that you had to spend years toiling away in small-market TV before you were ever given the chance to host or anchor a live network TV news show.
MSNBC used to have Brian Williams on call to step in and serve as news anchor whenever when there was breaking news. Now, they have no one in that role. (Stephanie Ruhle replaced Brian on "The 11th Hour," but she's not a designated breaking news anchor.)
|by Anonymous||reply 417||March 18, 2023 6:40 PM|
Food for thought: In the stumbling game sweepstakes I'd like to see Jonathan paired up in a competition against CNN's Anderson Cooper. My god, but Cooper has been doing this for so long and yet he has a difficult time in "completing a sentence" without stumbling, stopping or starting over. It drives me up a wall!
And that is essentially the same complaint which was made here earlier-on gripe about Capehart.

R416 At ABC, when there is 'breaking news' happening at 10:00 am, Whoopi Goldberg starts The View with "As we are coming on air, there's been breaking news about another school shooting in Texas this morning..." I've seen this many times over the past seven years or so. She reports breaking news about shootings, Supreme Court decisions, Trump's legal problems...whatever is breaking across the news cycle as they're going on air.
It doesn't make Whoopi a news anchor just because she starts the show off with 'breaking news'.

R442 The original discussion was whether or not Jonathan Capehart was considered a 'news anchor' because he covered 'breaking news' on Saturday morning. I disagreed in referring to him as a 'news anchor' - I said his role on MSNBC is that of talk show host and political commentator. I said he was as much as a 'news anchor' as Whoopi or Joy Behar is when they open 'The View' with breaking news.
Someone said 'The View' was under ABC's News Division, so again I asked - does that make Whoopi and Joy news anchors because they sometimes open the show with 'breaking news' as they're going on air ?
Nothing has been mentioned in the discussion about 'legal responses' and 'legal standards of political news' , Sunny Hostin, or even FOX news until you just interjected this into the conversation.

This isn't particular to MSNBC, but it's getting harder and harder to watch the news; it is unfathomably depressing. DJT is bad enough. But it's also everything else happening, whether it's mass shootings, or weather, or the state of our country now being run by Republicans.
Last night when they were talking about what "we" could do to stop mass shootings, I wanted someone to scream "STOP VOTING FOR REPUBLICANS, that's what we could do."
But no. We're all too fucking polite. Too busy fiddling.

Oh, but last night I did learn about the podcast 'Prosecuting Donald Trump: A Primer' with Andrew Weissmann and Mary McCord, so there's that amidst the doom. Or a positive aspect to the doom?
I'm a masochist.

^^^ Yes, you are a "masochist"!
I agree with a prior comment and also find it difficult and taxing to listen to the on and one and on speculative droning of some of these folks! As they once said, "Just the facts, ma'am."
Mary McCord is knowledgeable but her appearances are repetitious and my bf and I eventually end up commenting about her looks once we've tuned her out.
And Andrew Weissmann truly can put a person to sleep or cause the mute button to be activated! His damned vocal fry is so off-putting that it's pathetic that MSNBC hasn't yet reached out to him about cleaning that up! DO IT NOW, MSNBC!
And while, they're at it, they could also suggest to Nicolle Wallace that she clean up her own irritating act of those multiple uses of , "I mean... I mean... I mean!" that begin her moments of speaking!
If you are beginning a rant or comment, you f'ing don't start off with "I MEAN!"

No. You must begin, as every guest does, with the word "[bold]Look...[/bold]"
As if they are always about to provide [bold]THE[/bold] most salient point. I've yet to hear a single guest commentator that hasn't begun with it.

Michael Weiss, Lemire's fav guest, needs to get over himself.

That seems like a very unstable place to put a Peloton. They’re heavy and put stress/motion on the floor when being ridden. Seems like a solid floor is a better option, unless it’s just for decoration.
