  • Speier: U.S. House Paid $15 Million to Its Secret Sexual Harassment Victims

    Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Daily on Tuesday that the U.S. House of Representatives has paid $15 million to alleged victims of sexual harassment by its own members in recent years. “We do know there is about $15 million that has been paid out by the House on behalf of harassers in the last ten to 15 years,” she said. “15 million dollars has been paid out over sexual harassment claims,” Todd replied, somewhat shocked. “So, obviously more than one member of Congress.” Pressed for details, Speier said she did not know how...
  • MSNBC host has perfectly logical reason for not covering Menendez trial

    Today the jurors in the corruption trial of Senator Bob Menendez (D – NJ) will go back to work on orders of the judge, seeking to break what appears to be heading for a deadlock. Of course, if you don’t read conservative blogs or watch Fox News, you probably didn’t know that. There’s been a vacuum in terms of coverage on the major networks and most of cable news. One glaring example of this is MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell, who freely admits that he hasn’t mentioned the trial once since it began.Why is that? He was actually asked about it...

    On November 8, 2016, America's chief storytellers—those within the bubbles of media and politics—lost the narrative they had controlled for decades. In a space of 24 hours, the concept of "conventional wisdom" seemed to vanish for good. How did this happen? What follows are over 40 brand new interviews and behind-the-scenes stories from deep inside The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, Fox News, and more—plus first-hand accounts from the campaigns, themselves. We've spent a year hearing the spin. Now it's time for the truth. THE RUN-UP Steve Bannon, Trump campaign CEO: When I first came on the campaign,...

    It’s possible that Chris Matthews has publicly discussed his drinking past before, but I had never witnessed it until tonight. When, on this evening’s Hardball, a winning Dem candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates started to discuss the opioid crisis, Matthews spoke up: “I was lucky not to have that [opioids.] I think I drank over the years too much and I quit.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    On Tuesday's episode of Meet the Press Daily, panelist Yamiche Alcindor and host Chuck Todd incorrectly said Stephen Willeford did not exchange fire with the Texas church shooter or end his attack. "When I was watching President Trump today, and he was making his argument that [the shooter] was essentially stopped by someone with a gun, I thought he killed himself," Yamiche Alicindor, a national reporter for the New York Times, said. "There was not a big gun fight, and he was not stopped. There needs to be a fact check on how it was stopped."
  • Maddow, O’Donnell Lose It Over VA Results: ‘Tonight’s History Is Being Written by Movie Writers’

    After being relatively well-behaved, MSNBC eventually burst out gloating over the Democratic Party’s tidal wave victories in Virginia as pundits Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell celebrated and particularly over the “stunning” victory of transgender House of Delegates candidate Danica Roem that they deemed a night in which “history is being written by movie writers.” O’Donnell was later assisted in the triumphant debriefing by New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof, who encouraged Democrats to put “some referendums on the ballot on guns, on reproductive health, on a lot of other issues, so, I think is a good omen for Democrats in...
  • Joy Reid claims NRA desires American ‘warlords,’ ‘private armies’ that kill at will

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid told her fans Monday that the National Rifle Association has machinations of building an America where “packs of warlords” can kill at will. The host of “AM Joy” reacted to Sunday’s church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas, by claiming NRA members — over 5 million Second Amendment advocates — seek the creation of “private armies” operating outside the rule of law. The comments came one day after 26-year-old Devin Kelley killed 26 churchgoers and wounded another 20 in a rampage reportedly linked to a domestic dispute. “Americans are living like packs of warlords, with heavily armed people...

    Joe Biden will be running for President of the United States in 2020 - no ifs, ands or buts, at least according to Chris Matthews, host of MSNBC's "Hardball." "I’ve talked to his family. He's running. OK? Fact," Matthews said Friday following an appearance at NBC10 promoting his new book, "Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit." Biden, President Obama's vice president and a popular seven-time senator from Delaware, is a "regular guy," Matthews says, who would rather summer at casual Rehoboth Beach than tony Martha’s Vineyard. It's Biden’s everyday sensibility that could help him attract working-class whites, a group Matthews believes...

    MSNBC. MS-13. Same struggle? In an amusing stumble on her MSNBC show this morning, Joy Reid momentarily seemed to confuse her own network with the notorious MS-13 criminal gang. Claiming that Virginia Republican candidate Ed Gillespie is running as a “neo-Confederate,” Reid said that he is using racial scare ads, “where he’s saying brown people are coming to kill you, because they’re all in MSN –" Reid seemed about to say “MSNBC,” before catching herself: “MS-13.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    To put things into perspective, President Trump called on Thursday for the Manhattan Islamic terrorist to be put to death; obviously, we’re referring to the Uzbek national who killed 8 innocent people and maimed 12 (one of the survivors suffered a double amputation) by mowing them with a rented truck on November 1st. The Muslim radical entered the US via the Diversity Visa Lottery program, which is also under scrutiny, as the POTUS asked for the respective program to be scrapped as soon as possible by the Congress. President Trump tweeted on Thursday morning: NYC terrorist was happy as he...

    Just hours after news broke that a radical inspired by ISIS drove into a bikepath, killing eight people and injuring over a dozen others, MSNBC was already out deflecting blame from the radical religious ideology behind the attack. The network’s terrorism analyst, Malcolm Nance, defended Islam, saying it wasn’t responsible for Tuesday’s terror attack. He even brought Christianity into the mix, saying that sometimes Christians were responsible for terror.  Hardball host Chris Matthews brought Nance into the conversation on Tuesday night's program, asking him about the trend of terrorists using vehicles to go on their violent rampages. Nance responded that...

    It would be laughable if it weren’t so infuriating . . . Every time there is an Islamic terror attack, someone in the liberal media will claim that it is not really Islamic. And so Chris Matthews’ MSNBC show rolled out Malcolm Nance, it’s “terrorism analyst,” this evening to comment on the murderous attack in NYC today. And sure enough: “What you’re seeing is not Islam, whatsoever . . . None of that is Islamic. It’s anti-Islamic.” View the video here.

    Carter Page, former foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, said he might have been included in emails with George Papadopoulos, another campaign foreign policy adviser, regarding Russia. MSNBC host Chris Hayes pressed Page Monday night if Page remembered Papadopoulos telling people Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to set up a meeting and that he was approached about Hillary Clinton’s emails. “I know nothing about e-mails,” Page said. “Definitely nothing. I heard nothing about that.” “A direct question on this particular thing,” Hayes said. “Do you remember Papadopoulos emailing about this stuff? “There were tons of emails happening on a...

    In a very ironic plot twist, MSNBC's viewers-of which most are probably disagreeing with President Trump's "big, beautiful" border wall all along the Mexico border- were given a real-life lesson on the utility of a strong border wall, as a number of illegal aliens were seen jumping the border fence in the close vicinity of San Diego right in the middle of MSNBC's reportage on President Donald Trump's wall construction. MSNCB's reporter Jacob Soboroff was pretty shocked to see a bunch of people crossing the border illegally, as US Border Patrol rushed in and apprehended the illegal immigrants, which are...

    America’s largest Irish group, the Ancient Order of Hibernians, has slammed black MSNBC host Joy Reid for what they say were her racist comments about Irish Americans. Reid wrote on Twitter: “Kelly grew up in segregated Boston, in an Irish Catholic neighborhood where women were bullied, not honored, and blacks scorned & rejected.” Reid made the comments about the Boston Irish after Boston native and White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly had criticized African American congresswoman Frederica S. Wilson […] Neil Cosgrave, the chairman of the AOH anti-defamation committee, slammed Reid and MSNBC saying, “It is hard to...

    On Sunday's AM Joy, one left-wing MSNBC guest portrayed Republicans as a "RepublicaKlan party" promoting "white supremacy," and another guest tried to paint one of President Donald Trump's judicial nominees as a "segregationist" as he also smeared former Senator Jesse Helms as "one of the most notorious racists in American politics." Ari Berman of the far-left Mother Jones appeared about 11:36 a.m. ET to discuss one of his articles in which he went after federal judicial nominee Tom Farr as someone who had supported "voter suppression" in North Carolina. He also claimed that the Neil Gorsuch Supreme Court seat was...

    MSNBC star Rachel Maddow’s latest anti-Trump conspiracy theory was so outlandish that even the dependently liberal HuffPost criticized it as "so flimsy that it could be debunked by a quick glance at a map." On Thursday evening, "The Rachel Maddow Show" opened with a somber 25-minute diatribe that attempted to connect the tragic ambush attack that killed four American soldiers in Niger to the latest version of President Trump’s proposed travel ban, which included the nation of Chad. Maddow essentially claimed that the inclusion of Chad, which recently pulled its troops out of Niger, in the revised travel ban resulted...

Simmons landed a rare interview with the colonel and found out that military officials in North Korea watch "Morning Joe," specifically for reports and discussions about their country, the Hill reported.
