He can usually attract guests that no other hosts on MSNBC can get, and that alone is worth watching. Joe Scarborough is a star, and NOT a racist, which is something as he is a FL panhandle Republican guy. (For those of us who know what a Rolodex is....)I agree with R37 about Joy - I can't stand listening to her. All that eye rolling & immature & unprofessional dramatics is making me search for new morning news . I wish they'd give Eugene Robinson a show too, although he's probably too low-key to be compelling TV. Ands he needs a stylist, STAT.[quote]I wish they'd give Eugene Robinson a show too, although he's probably too low-key to be compelling TV. Gene is best suited for the position he has now -- a pundit. I think Kornacki is delinquent in social skills, probably bores others to death.
Kasie Hunt is a favorite, also she is wholesome girl next door looks and smart too. Reid had to work pretty hard to stop Trump shill Urkel yesterday, who got downright sullen over the fact that he was challenged and talked over everyone else. Nobody does more talking over another person than CHRIS MATTHEWS. I'm not buying that he's a Republican cheerleader as much as he knows Trump has no viable path, so plays up the horse race aspect. Thomas Roberts - bleech A couple of years ago they tried to make him into the sex symbol of the am, naming him host of the now cancelled Way Too Early program at AM.
Our Word of the Year choice serves as a symbol of each year’s most meaningful events and lookup trends.
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year.
I try to like Rachel Maddow since I agree with her politics but I agree with the poster that says she takes 20 minutes to make a 1 minute point. Habit of beating a dead horse on a particular point, as if she thinks the viewer didn't get what she was saying the first or second time.
And she can be a bit on the defensive when it comes to Feminism/SJWisms, but overall love her and never miss the show.
He has meltdowns, he can be funny and at times charming. I love Joy and I'm glad they have finally given her her own show, even if it is one of the weekend morning things. The way she held Trump's feet to the fire over that hacking thing was wonderful The things I would do to Soboroff..... One time I caught him yelling at karen Finney of all people. I'll co-sign you, r48, Scooter Kornacki is practically giddy when the Repubs make a point, he's clearly in their corner.
His guests are usually the best thing about the show. I've been hoping they would for a long time - she was always one of their best correspondents. AGAIN for the truly blind and deaf as well as stupid, Kornacki is NOT even handed. He tries to tone down his cheerleading for the Repubs when he subs for Rachel's show. You'd sit through an hour of a host stutter and stammer?
And I will once again pledge allegiance to Lawrence Mc Donnel. He at times was obnoxious as hell, but I was often ready to drop to my knees for his potentially skranky ol cock, just to thank him for being so blunt and not giving a fuck that he was overstepping journalistic boundaries that others tread too lightly around. MSNBC performed better than CNN in the ratings during the month of August, so you're actually incorrect, R17. I was hoping Kasie Hunt batted for our team, but sadly not. He only comes alive when he's referencing historical political data and anecdotes of past election cycles.
I respect Rachel Maddow's smarts but she tries a bit too hard for the appearance of the Fox logo "fair and balanced" for me. Maddow has been crushing Cooper's show consistently in viewers and the demo for a while now. I much prefer Chris Hayes, who's more engaging, warm and quick at correcting distorted facts or blatant untruths.
Kornacki is okay, but clearly he doesn't have a life as he would be on every single moment if they would let him. I'll take her over Tweety and Toad who let them spin and pivot unchallenged. But she does sometimes take 20 minutes to tell a 2 minute story. I mostly like Hayes, but he's reminds me of an eager puppy. If Soboroff identifies as straight, I'll take him at his word ... There's another reporter for NBC (not MSNBC) who was on during the convention who makes Rascon seem fugly. Now he's just a news reader, and I find I like him okay especially if he's after that bimbo jerk Stephanie Ruhl . She dumped him as soon as she was on sure footing with NBC. Stephanie Ruhl grates on the nerves, the fugliest of the fraus by far. Hallie Jackson is the best of the female road warriors. Casie Hunt is great, she's attractive but there is just a touch of a PE teacher there. She's been filling in for MTP Daily lately and she's getting better but nothing to write home about. She totally went in on Boris, the Trump surrogate, who even called her a "Hillary surrogate." That Boris guy is the biggest D-bag supporting Trump.
