    Chris Matthews and the Goofy Looking Dude from the Southern Poverty Law Center have a point: We do not have any evidence Donald Trump did not personally knock over 200 headstones in a Jewish graveyard in St. Louis. But they were sure if Trump did not do it, then some of his supporters did and everyone knows that. The further from St. Louis you get, the less insane that sounds. Because in St. Louis, large-scale vandalism and criminality is a black thing -- not a political thing.   The Trump tombstone desecration was just the warmup. Chris and the Goofy Looking Dude said Trump...

    The president’s attack on “fake news” are especially ironic, Scarborough said, because Trump and his closest advisors have repeatedly lied about inauguration crowds, crime rate statistics and nonexistent terrorist attacks. “As Jesus said, don’t throw stones if you live in glass houses,” Scarborough said. “This man lives in the biggest glass house there is when it comes to a disconnection from truth. So to attack the media and then say they’re enemies of the people is beyond the pale.”

    If Morning Joe had a hook, they would have yanked presidential advisor Stephen Miller off the set of the Sunday shows he appeared on yesterday. Today's Morning Joe devoted a long segment to eviscerating his performance. The essence of the criticism was two-fold. First, that Miller spoke too much about his personal views rather than those of the president he serves. Second, that in declaring that the powers of the president to protect the country "will not be questioned" he was expressing an undemocratic view running counter to the principle of judicial review.

    An embarrassed CNN and MSNBC quickly – but not quickly enough – pulled away from live coverage of Madonna’s f-bomb fueled speech at the March on Washington. Both channels let three of the utterances slip through.

    Monday on MSNBC’s “Hardball,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said if President-elect Donald Trump or staff on his campaign had “collusion” or “exchanges of information,” with Russian government officials about former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, that would justify impeachment. Partial transcript as follows: WATERS: When John talked about him being ill legitimate, he talked about the fact about whether or not the Russians did play a role in determining what happened in our elections and also I think John was talking about there are going to be more investigations to determine whether or not Trump or his advocates — people...
  • DONALD TRUMP BAILED OUT SON’S FAILING COMPANY, STICKING BURDEN FOR POLLUTION CLEANUP ON TAXPAYERS

    President-Elect Donald Trump bought his son’s failed company, foreclosed on the property, and now South Carolina taxpayers are left to clean up the mess he left behind. President-Elect Trump won South Carolina by a little more than 14 points. In early 2014, a company in Charleston, South Carolina was promising to “revolutionize” home construction, by manufacturing and selling “home construction kits.” First it was called Titan Atlas Manufacturing, later being in reorganized into Titan Atlas Global before shutting down for good in the spring of 2015. Part of this doomed venture was none other than Donald Trump, Jr., who faced...
  • Donald Trump can’t make the (serious but unverified) Russia scandal go away

    The scandal surrounding Russia’s intervention in the U.S. presidential election has, broadly speaking, come in three phases. The first broke during the campaign itself. Around the time Donald Trump publicly urged Russia to commit illegal acts of cyber-espionage to help his candidacy, multiple reports came to light suggesting Russian officials were, in fact, trying to boost the Republican. Trump, when he wasn’t praising Putin, dismissed the allegations, and much of the political world focused instead on Hillary Clinton’s email server protocols. The second phase unfolded soon after Election Day, when 17 U.S. intelligence agencies reached a consensus: Russia did launch...

    ANDREA MITCHELL: You know, every time I watch this I'm just watching that ceremony I was in tears. We are seeing so much dissension and disruption in Washington and around the country and to see this relationship, this partnership pretty seamless on policy, if they had disputes, they were over their, you know, little lunches and breakfasts that we didn't see.
  • THE TRUTH BEHIND MEGYN KELLY’S NBC DEAL (Compared to "All About Eve" Harrington)

    The Megyn Kelly story is about best laid plans going awry—ironically awry. She bargained to be the biggest voice of the dominant news channel in America — and, as well, the best paid on-air personality in the history of television news. Instead, she’s become merely a contender among the knives-out egos in the contested (and ever dwindling) territory of network news—and at a steep discount to the brass-ring salary she might have had. The Murdochs, father and sons, thought Kelly was going to be their way of cleansing Fox of Roger Ailes and his brand of diss-the-elites conservatism—and of letting...
  • What has happened to MSNBC? They're mild in comparison to CNN now and days

    01/13/2017 9:26:34 AM PST · by Bigtigermike · 35 replies
    Most of the MSM in general leans to the left of the ideological spectrum, but MSNBC was once proud to be the direct media arm of the Democrat Party itself. Now they have seem to have become mild Of course, they still have their liberal media personalities on the air just like Sean Hannity is the conservative bulwark at FoxNews but even there they are not so agressive as their counterparts on CNN, who once was considered the moderate (slightly less outright liberal) network against a backdrop of so called 'divisive' media entities. Now CNN has taken the mantel from...
  • BREAKING: MSNBC report demolishes the Trump/Russia story

    MSNBC stabs the narrative in the back. It’s really starting to look like the Trump/Russia blackmail story will go down in history as a high point in the annals of fake news. Every hour, we learn something new that derails the narrative the media so desperately wanted to believe. Buzzfeed, which President Elect Trump called a “failing pile of garbage” during today’s press conference is now the “fake news” poster child. As Dan outlined earlier, the entire kerfuffle stems from a briefing in which Trump was allegedly informed that the Russians had some pretty disgusting video of him frolicking with...

    On today’s Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough ripped as “repulsive” Sean Hannity’s “bromance” with Julian Assange, and more generally criticized the Republican change of heart on Wikileaks. Background on the evolution of Hannity’s views on Assange here [note: from Daily Beast.] Scarborough noted that when Wikileaks divulged information about a CIA operation some years ago, Assange became the Republican “enemy #1.” In 2010, Donald Trump himself tweeted that WikiLeaks was “disgraceful” and that there “should be death penalty or something.” View the video here.

    Greta Van Susteren has over the course of her career held forth for both CNN and Fox News Channel. Now she’s going to do the same for MSNBC. The NBCUniversal-owned cable-news outlet said Thursday that it had hired Van Susteren to anchor its 6 p.m. hour, which had previously been occupied by a political-news program, “With All Due Respect.” That program, hosted by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, had been produced by Bloomberg Television and re-played on MSNBC as part of a programming agreement. Van Susteren, who left Fox News Channel in the wake of a contract dispute last year,...
