  • MSNBC Host Warns: Trump Brings ‘Devastating Political Chapter in American History’

    MRC Newsbusters ^ | 05/24/2017 | Kyle Drennen
    During MSNBC’s 3 p.m. ET hour on Wednesday, anchor Ali Velshi breathlessly made a sweeping declaration to viewers: “It certainly feels like we’re in the opening stages of a devastating political chapter in American history. Evidence is mounting for the President’s meddling in the Russia probe.” The host touted some of the latest “bombshell reports” in the press based on anonymous sources, using a jigsaw puzzle graphic to show how the liberal media was building its case to take down Donald Trump. However, despite seeming to have made up his mind that the President was guilty, Velshi turned to the...

    MSNBC finally overtook Fox News Channel — and left CNN in the dust. Officials at the once third place cable news network were crowing Monday about winning last week’s primetime ratings race for the first time. Led by Rachel Maddow, the left-skewing primetime schedule beat Fox’s revamped Bill O’Reilly-less lineup for the first time, a humiliating loss for Tucker Carlson, “The Five” and Sean Hannity, according to the latest Nielsen numbers. For the week, Monday through Friday when people are paying the most attention to the big name TV hosts who go head-to-head on cable news, MSNBC won across the...
  • Cable News Ratings Shock: Fox Slips to 3rd Place in Primetime for First Time in 17 Years

    Fox News slipped to third place in the primetime demo for the first time in 17 years last week as competitors CNN and MSNBC enjoyed a surge in viewership thanks to a chaotic news week for President Donald Trump’s administration. For the week of May 15-19, Fox News averaged just 497,000 viewers in the advertiser-coveted key demo of adults 25-54 during primetime hours, compared to CNN’s 589,00 and MSNBC’s 611,000, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which cited data from ratings tracker Nielsen.

    On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough said that President Trump “revealed himself as the jackass that leaked top secret Israeli intel,” adding that the intel that President Trump allegedly leaked was “about somebody on the inside of a terror organization that killed 20 little girls and their mothers last night.” Scarborough first observed that in denying that he had mentioned Israel in his meeting with the Russians, Trump was denying something of which he had not been accused. Scarborough said that was like a man who runs into a police station saying “my wife’s missing and it’s not my gun that’s...
  • MSNBC Analyst: Explosion Sound Could Be 'Gas-Filled Balloon'

    Early Monday evening as details of a loud explosion at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester England were first rolling in, something obviously very wrong as MSNBC’s chyron was reporting “at least 20 dead.” But for the network’s Law Enforcement Analyst Jim Cavanaugh on Hardball, the terrifying noise could have been anything, including a very loud balloon popping as he told host Chris Matthews. "The police have not told us the cause of this loud explosion. There was some reports of smoke, but we could have people injured in an accidental explosion, some kind of event in there with equipment,...

  • Mika: We Won’t Be Distracted by Trump Trip, Will Focus on Russia Investigations

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    The MSM is hating President Trump’s foreign trip. Why? Because it takes the spotlight off what they’d much rather be covering: the investigations back home into Russian involvement in the election. Yesterday, we witnessed a CNN host fretting that President Trump’s successful speech in Saudi Arabia might be “normalizing” him. Now it’s Mika Brzezinski’s turn to insist that she won’t let Morning Joe be distracted by the foreign trip. On today’s show, when HuffPo‘s Sam Stein said that despite the investigations, people are “going about our business,” Mika jumped on him. View the video here.

    Air Force One touched down in Tel Aviv this morning a little after five o’clock on the east coast. The President and the First Lady quickly deplaned and were greeted by Prime Minister Netanyahu and his wife. It was one of the more friendly, informal initial greetings between world leaders I’ve seen in a while, with both men smiling broadly, shaking hands and joking about where they should stand for the pictures and in what order they should walk down the carpet. One microphone picked up the two leaders joking around with each other and Netanyahu saying that he...
  • MSNBC Terrorism Analyst: If USA Were Third-World Nation, We'd be Watching for an Army Coup

    On Joy Reid's show this morning, MSNBC terrorism analyst Malcolm Nance said that if the United States "were some third-world nation right now, we'd be watching the army to see if the tanks are getting ready to move for a coup. Or if a guy jumps on a plane and flies to Monaco with all the money from the state." Sounds like a "helpful" suggestion/wishful thinking from MSNBC. Nance, by the way, is the person who nominated a Trump property for an ISIS suicide attack. To date, there's no evidence online that he has apologized or been disciplined by MSNBC....

    Hey, give Joy Reid credit. At least she didn’t go full Hitler analogy . . . On her MSNBC show this morning, Reid claimed that a recently-adopted Texas immigration law sounds “almost like an apartheid-era law.” To support her alarmist claim, Reid badly mischaracterized the law, suggesting that under it, “any person can be stopped for any reason and asked essentially [to] show their papers.” Her ACLU guest seemingly agreed, saying, “that’s right.” But she added that immigration-status inquiries can be made “once a person is legally detained,” thus debunking Reid’s suggestion that a person could be stopped and asked...

    Quotes from MSNBC Andrea Mitchell's Tom Brokaw Interview copied by Washington Free Bacon ^ | May 11, 2017 | Quotes from MSNBC Andrea Mitchell's Tom Brokaw Interview
    Veteran reporter Tom Brokaw said in an interview with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC that he has not seen anybody who thinks former FBI Director James Comey was doing a good job. Brokaw, who covered the Watergate scandal in the 1970s, suggested that much of the media response to Comey's Tuesday firing and Russia's possible connection to President Donald Trump's campaign team was "speculation." "One of the things that I learned during Watergate … is that we dealt with it every day on a factual basis. There was not a lot of speculation. Now, of course, the media landscape has changed...

    In the cold open of the May 6th broadcast, NBC's Saturday Night Live took on its own network property, MSNBC morning political talk show Morning Joe. Alex Moffat's Joe Scarborough used couple nicknames like "Mika mouse" and "Mika boo" throughout the segment to refer to his fiance and Morning Joe while panel regulars expressed how uncomfortable they were by the closeness of the hosts. (Panelists included Mike Barnicle, Mark Halperin and Willie Geist.) VIDEO at link...

    On Thursday’s All In with Chris Hayes, MSNBC guest and Boing Boing co-editor Xeni Jardin broke down sobbing over the House passage of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) as a “devastating” event that’s not “the American that I love” and promising to “fight for every single one of you, America.” Hilariously, the liberal simultaneously demanded that “[e]very single cell in this country, every single person in this country deserves life” but must have realized her far-left mistake as she later emphasized that “[t]he America that I love cares about my right to life, even though I’m 46 years past...

    The radical transformation of cable news continues. According to a report by Yashar Ali in New York Magazine, conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt is in talks with MSNBC about the creation of a new television show Hewitt would host. According to New York Magazine’s sources, the show would air on weekend evenings. Initially, Hewitt had been offered a show for weekend mornings, but Hewitt turned the offer down because he reportedly wants an evening show. Hewitt is a longtime conservative radio host who is broadcast through the popular Salem Radio Network. He is also currently a contributor for...

    Page Six ^ | 4/30/17 | Emily Smith
    Brian Williams has been rebuked by MSNBC for being “patronizing” to the network’s biggest star, Rachel Maddow. After Williams hijacked Maddow’s show to break the Syria missile news earlier this month, he turned to her live on air at the end of the segment and said,“Thanks for visiting tonight. Glad you were a part of our coverage.” Viewers — who were already mad that MSNBC slipped “Lyin’ Brian” in to break the news when Maddow was already at the anchor desk talking about Syria — flipped out. @Barbvas tweeted, “Annoyed to hear Brian Williams thanking Rachel Maddow for assisting with...
  • MSNBC Host Says Trump Inherited Successes From Obama

    04/29/2017 11:48:51 AM PDT · by ColdOne · 28 replies ^ | 4/29/17 | Charles Fain Lehman
    MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle on Thursday attributed President Donald Trump's successes to former President Barack Obama. Ruhle's comments were prompted by a discussion of the president's first 100 days in office, and Trump's repeated claims that he had inherited "a mess" from the previous administration. "First how frustrating is this for you, Josh?" Ruhle asked guest Josh Earnest, former White House press secretary. "President Obama was definitively handed a mess." Ruhle was likely alluding to, among other things, the tenuous state of the economy that Obama inherited when he took office in the wake of the 2008 Recession.
  • In Trump era, Rachel Maddow starts beating Fox News

    CNN ^ | 04/25/2017 | Brian Stelter
    Fox News normally ranks #1 among cable news channels. But lately MSNBC's Rachel Maddow has been challenging Fox at 9 p.m., the centerpiece of the prime time schedule. "The Rachel Maddow Show" surpassed "Tucker Carlson Tonight" in March among 25- to 54-year-old viewers, the demographic that determines advertising rates. Maddow was on track to win again in April. But on Monday night the cable news ratings race changed dramatically. Carlson moved from 9 p.m. to 8, replacing Bill O'Reilly, and Fox's 5 p.m. talk show "The Five" moved to 9. Maddow may or may not benefit from the change. Regardless,...

    California Secretary of State Alex Padilla condemned the President: “It’s about the lying about the lying. I mean, Donald Trump’s biggest contribution to the country in his first 100 days of office is the term ‘alternative facts.’” He did, however, manage to offer this bit of optimism: “The only reason I don’t things have been worse in the first hundred days is because they’ve been so ineffective....good thing for us.” Schiff pleaded for a Republican “hero” to “stand up” to Trump: “I keep looking to John McCain, and believe it or not, I keep looking to Lindsey Graham....please stand up....Are...
