    Eager to move a message that focuses on things like minimum wage hikes and health care premiums, [Democrats] have been overtaken by a steady stream of stories of Russian meddling, porn star payoffs, and shady Trump-world figures. Ultimately, many offices and aides have come to the conclusion that they should simply give up on trying to break through on cable news at all. “It’s impossible,” said one Senate aide, “unless you want to talk about Russia.” … [N]umerous other aides echoed this point, sharing stories of fruitless calls and emails to bookers and abrupt cancellations on pre-existing bookings.

    On his MSNBC show this evening, Ari Melber not so subtly suggested to Michael Avenatti that Michael Cohen might have put out a Mafia hit on him. Said Melber: “We had the Trump lawyer, a former lawyer, last night. Wasn’t just criticizing you, he was asking the question of whether Michael Cohen’s role was to deal with the Mafia for Donald Trump. I mean, he said that, and he’s a Trump lawyer. When you say “ugly,” do you have concerns about your own role, your own safety, your own precautions?”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace not only compared White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to a terrorist on Friday, Wallace said she should be choked at the podium in the briefing room. During the press briefing on Friday, Sanders was asked about a disparaging comment allegedly made by a White House aide about Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain’s health. Sanders said President Donald Trump cares about all Americans and does bear responsibility for what takes place in the White House. This prompted Wallace to say she wanted to strangle Sanders while she was at the White House podium. “How do you...

    During Saturday’s MSNBC broadcast of “AM Joy,” Paul Butler, professor of law at Georgetown Law School, commended former student and Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti, sitting right beside him, for his work in trying to take down President Donald Trump. According to Butler, Avenatti and FBI special counsel Robert Mueller are a “justice league” trying to save democracy.

    MSNBC daytime host Nicolle Wallace suggested that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders should be choked after she refused to comment Friday on a report that an aide in the administration made a dismissive remark about Sen. John McCain's, R-Ariz., health. On her show Friday, Wallace, who was an adviser for McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, asked NBC News' White House reporter Kristen Welker, "How do you resist the temptation to run up and wring her neck? Why can't she just say if a staffer said that, we're going to get to the bottom of it and she'll be fired?"

    The lawyer for Daniels is using his client to get three hours of his face on NBC’s cable news arm........Avenatti. “We can have a whole show — If you’ll devote a show to what’s on the DVD, maybe we’ll release it.” We were reminded once again that this is a racket when Stormy Daniels did her part for #TheResistance and she appeared last weekend on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” Daniels and Avenatti continued to raise their national profile and capacity to profit off a scam with the eager help of NBC. Daily Beast politics reporter Gideon Resnick joked Tuesday on...

    President Donald Trump suggested Wednesday that he might revoke White House credentials for some journalists, following the publication of a survey that showed a dramatic leftward tilt in television news coverage about him. The Media Research Center, a conservative watchdog group, tracked the evening newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC for the first four months of this year and found more than 1,600 'explicitly positive and negative' statements about the president. The group determined that nine out of 10 of those broadcast statements were negative. It did not include CNN and MSNBC in its research. Trump vented, saying: 'The Fake...

    Alan Dershowitz and Richard Painter Get in Tense Clash: Mueller May Be a Good American But ‘You’re Not’An MSNBC debate between Alan Dershowitz and Senate candidate Richard Painter got tense and personal as they clashed over Robert Mueller. Painter praised Mueller as a “highly professional prosecutor” with a great record and said it’s a “tragedy” that the country now has to endure all of this. Dershowitz said the White House’s behavior may be a “tragedy” too, but so is Mueller’s office, and he described the special counsel as someone with a “mixed reputation” in Boston from before he headed the...

    Another week has gone by in which the media covering the president of the United States has committed reckless malpractice more disgraceful than usual. Last Friday, President Trump hosted athletes from the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics at the White House. For 20 minutes he celebrated their accomplishments, often calling them to the podium and joking with them. It was a ceremony of pure goodwill, and the president, as any good hotelier would, made sure each one had a memorable experience. When he brought the gold medalists from the curling team up to the podium to great applause, one of...

    On her MSNBC show AM Joy, Joy Reid lined up her supporters on the radical gay left to change the subject from her anti-gay blog posts from a decade ago to the usual MSNBC hysteria. Brandon Wolf of the Dru Project repeatedly attacked the "homophobic psychopaths" in power and even suggested if he were ever president, Mike Pence would "have us all in concentration camps hoping to pray away the gay." BRANDON WOLF: I just want to cut through it all and keep it very real with people about what we’re up against. We have homophobic psychopaths running the United...

    For nearly a century, the Democrats loved Russia. Not the Russian people, mind you, who were being oppressed, starved and enslaved, but the Russian system. That system was communism. Forget that communism murdered about 100 million people in the last century. And forget that communist socialism failed economically every place it was tried, from the Soviet Union to Cuba to Venezuela to East Germany to North Korea. Because the real goal of communists was never economic prosperity. Their real goal was tyranny. They succeeded so wildly at tyranny for a while that the Dems thought the Russians might rescue us...

    Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson criticized MSNBC weekend host Joy Reid for her claim of being a victim of hacking and a “disinformation campaign.” Archived versions of her blog showed the use of homophobic slurs a decade ago. Carlson said the hacking claim was a “crock” and “a childish lie” that one would have to be a “moron” to believe. “It was a total crock, and we know it was a crock because Reid’s blog posts were archived by other websites including the Library of Congress in Washington all the way back to 2006....

    In a 2007 blog post, MSNBC host Joy Reid attacked TV host Rosie O'Donnell using misogynistic and fat-shaming language and defended future president Donald Trump. After Reid apologized for old homophobic blog posts in December 2017, her blog "The Reid Report" was effectively taken off of the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine thanks to an exclusion request added by the website's operators. But a mirror of the Wayback Machine operated by the Library of Congress remains unaffected, and several of Reid's posts are still visible on that site. In a January 9th blog post, Reid weighed in on the celebrity feud...

    They say doctors make the worst patients. Seems they have no problem diagnosing others and proscribing solutions, but fall short when it comes to following the advice they dispense. Liberal pundits suffer from the same problem – they love diagnosing others but don’t like it when it comes time to take their own medicine.Joy Reid is the latest liberal to be exposed as not living up the standards she insists other achieve. The MSNBC personality is quick to accuse anyone who doesn’t share her progressive views of being a racist, a sexist, a homophobe, an Islamophobe – you name the...

But I can definitely understand, based on things I have tweeted, have written in the past, why some people don’t believe me,” she said. “For that, I am truly, truly sorry.”

"Here's what I know: I genuinely do not believe I wrote those hateful things," she said on AM Joy. "But I can definitely understand, based on things I have said and have written in the past,...
