    Those MSNBC folks have a natural talent for appearing to be all wrapped up in partisan Democratic politics. Could this just be Chris talking to a suburban friend? Even if so, he doesn't seem troubled by the possibility of a photo like this. Matthews has also been quite friendly toward Hillary on MSNBC, naturally. On Wednesday's Hardball, he touted her e-mail shredding scandal might help: "the unintended consequences, maybe the e-mails will end up helping her but I can't believe anybody will vote against her because of the e-mail issues. There are larger issues in the world." New York Times...

    Television personality and real estate mogul Donald Trump said in a recent interview that his views on gay marriage are evolving as society's opinion on the issue continues to change, but the business magnate was quick to note that he continues to support the traditional definition of marriage."I think really what you have is a very changing stance, and you see it changing very rapidly. If you go back 10 years ago it's very different [...] I think I'm evolving, and I think I'm a very fair person, but I have been for traditional marriage. I am for traditional marriage,...

    Donald Trump has admitted his views on gay marriage are 'evolving', however, the property mogul claimed that he is still a strong supporter of traditional marriage between a man and woman. Speaking to openly gay MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts, the billionaire said that his views on the subject are different to what they were 10 years ago and pointed to President Obama coming out in support of same-sex marriage. In Moscow as the co-owner of the Miss Universe Organization, Trump attended Saturday night's pageant along with Roberts, who openly criticized Russia's anti-gay laws.

    MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski asked Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken at what point going into overtime to make a nuclear deal with Iran starts to look “desperate” Thursday on Morning Joe. Nuclear talks were predictably extended to July 7 when Iran and world powers were unable to come to a full agreement at the original June 30 deadline. “Overtime, these talks still going, obviously a lot of back-and-forth now,” said NBC reporter Ayman Mohyeldin. “Now it’s been extended for at least another week.

    MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell said Tuesday that Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server that was subsequently destroyed was “very clearly in violation” of State Department rules. It was revealed earlier in the year that Clinton used a private email server to circumvent federal records requirements during her time as secretary of state. Government workers are required to conduct business on an official email address that saves correspondence to a government server so that they can be held accountable for their actions. O’Donnell said Clinton skirted those rules. “It goes back to the original issue, which is the proper...

However, on top of the humiliation of such a demotion, Williams shouldn't be too surprised to find a somewhat less than welcoming reception from the sanity challenged network of Big Ed and Reverend Al. According to a New York Post report, the rank and file staffers at MSNBC absolutely hate Brian Williams for a less than complimentary report on the state of cable news on his former Rock Center program:

    After an extensive investigation, NBC News finally decided the fate of habitual liar Brian Williams, who has been on an extended suspension since February. In the end, they made a brilliant decision by removing him from the anchor chair at the “NBC Nightly News” and demoting him to MSNBC, their embarrassment of a cable news network. Williams will join other chronic liars, such as the Reverend Al Sharpton, on the cable news network that has turned into a ratings disaster. MSNBC has a pathetic number of viewers for a national news network, usually about 500,000 per night. This is only...

    Dismissed from his post at NBC's Nightly News for making up stories, Brian Williams has been reassigned to the company's floundering cable channel where he has vowed "to reclaim my reputation, one viewer at a time." Whether Williams will be able to accomplish was thrown into doubt by his stubborn insistence that his on-the-air fabrications "weren't intended to mislead people." "Fiction isn't inherently untrue," Williams observed. "Many novels and movies portray deeper truths via fictional characters and events.

On today's Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski gushed "I think that it's great for the network" that Brian Williams will be joining MSNBC as its anchor of breaking news. As dutiful employees, it's understandable that MSNBC people would greet Williams impending arrival respectfully, as did Joe Scarborough in saying--without excitement--that he was "very excited."

    All of NBC’s bleeding-heart coverage of tattered American race relations – including the racial struggles of Michelle Obama – might sound awfully tinny if they don’t keep black anchorman Lester Holt in the Nightly News anchor chair. In a new Brian Williams story at the Daily Beast, “a prominent black broadcast journalist who knows Holt” told them: “If Brian does not come back and Lester does not get the job, it’s going to get ugly. You can only imagine.” It would seem odd for them to exile Williams and then turn to Savannah Guthrie or someone else other than Holt,...

    Somehow, the United States has managed to solider on without Brian Williams anchoring NBC Nightly News — as has the show itself, which has mostly maintained its viewership with Lester Holt manning the desk. Still, some people at NBC are reportedly hoping to hold onto Williams, who was suspended in February after he admitted to lying about the details of a 2003 trip to Iraq. (Subsequent reporting and an internal inquiry turned up a number of other fabrications.) CNN Money reports that while Williams could very well end up leaving NBC (with "a significant portion" of his $10 million-a-year contract),...

According to a blind-sourced story in the Daily News, Lack was hoping to reseat his old friend Williams in the network’s anchor chair.

Pelosi brought her grandchildren to see her receive an award from the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, to show the young, impressionable children that "marriage equality is important." In an interview with Thomas Roberts on MSNBC, Pelosi said she took the children to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund gala because "it's really important to see what the practice of our faith is." Pelosi, who described herself as a faithful Christian and “mainstream Catholic,” said her...

    he most common critique of our 2016 Presidential Hopefuls comparison grid this week has been of our amnesty rating for Ted Cruz. The Texas Senator has a mixed history on the issue, but we've given Cruz our second best rating of "Very Good". There's one thing that's crystal clear about Cruz's position on offering work permits to illegal aliens -- he passionately opposes Pres. Obama's illegal and unconstitutional amnesties. Just this week, Cruz tweeted a response to a Hillary Clinton tweet that criticized a federal appellate court's decision to uphold the temporary injunction placed on Pres. Obama's 2014 executive amnesties....

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina argued that “titles are just titles” and Hillary Clinton’s “track record” includes the collapse of the Middle East and the failed Russian reset on Wednesday’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” on MSNBC. Fiorina said, “I come from a world where titles are just titles, and talk is just talk. It’s only in politics where titles and words mean a lot. In the rest of the world, it’s actually about what have you done, actions speak louder than words. People want to know are your words and your actions consistent and are they consistent over time. And so,...

    That'll show 'em. MSNBC has a new show! It’s hosted by former Pennsylvania Representative Patrick Murphy (D-of course). It’s called “Taking the Hill” and this weekend it featured an appearance by everyone’s favorite former Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi. Murphy asked Pelosi about Obama’s failing battle against ISIS, but Pelosi wasn’t interested in admitting that things aren’t going so well. Instead, she decided to highlight one of the areas where we are, apparently, making some truly “impressive advances” against our barbaric opponents. Are we bombing them back into the stone age? Not really. Are we killing them at a...

    On Al Sharpton's MSNBC show today, former DNC Chairman Ed Rendell dared congressional Republicans to recall Hillary Clinton to testify about Benghazi. Calling her a "tough cookie," Rendell vowed that "Hillary will put them in short pants." Paging Camille Paglia . . . Rendell surely thought he was paying Hillary a compliment. But is this really the Hillary persona that Dems want to project: that of a woman who makes little boys out of grown men? View the video here.

    Jeb Bush: wannabe Arab killer and torturer. That was the portrait of the prospective Republican presidential candidate that Joe Wilson, husband of former CIA employee Valerie Plame, has painted. Appearing on Chris Hayes's MSNBC show this evening, Wilson claimed that the "conclusion you come to," looking at his foreign policy advisers, is that Jeb's plan is "to kill all Arabs we find on the streets," and if we can't kill them, "to torture them."

The senator and GOP presidential candidate faced questions from reporters about gay marriage, and responded with this, according to a report in the Washington Post. “Is there something about the left — and I am going to put the media in this category — that is obsessed with sex? “ISIS is executing homosexuals — you want to talk about gay rights? This week was a very...

    'Does it count as a police chase?': MSNBC under fire for insensitive tweet mocking moment cop was DRAGGED along The news organization MSNBC landed in hot water over a provocative tweet it posted which appeared to mock a police officer who was dragged along the street by a suspect. The tweet with a video embedded in it, created a firestorm from commenters on social media and news sites. It read: 'Does it count as a police chase if you drag the cop along for the ride?' But shortly after a backlash ensued online on Saturday, the network hastily removed it...

    Not only did The Ed Show hit a new low of 30K viewers in the 25-54 demo on Wednesday, but MSNBC had its lowest total day ratings in close to 10 years with 49K average viewers in the demo over the course of the day.

In primetime, MSNBC also came in third place with just 76K in the demo compared to 337K for Fox News and 196K for CNN.

    It sure was a productive Tuesday for Ed Schultz at his federal trial where he’s being sued for breach of partnership. He managed to make a huge liar out of both himself and MSNBC President Phil Griffin.Schultz’s bid to convince jurors that he got his MSNBC show without any help from NBC sound engineer and producer Michael Queen proved rather deceitful thanks to his own electronic footprints.Worse yet, the behemoth broadcaster’s ongoing attempt to turn the courtroom into his own little TV studio may have faltered when he walked into plaintiff attorney Catfish Abbott’s trap.More evidence also emerged about just...
