    MSNBC's Krystal Ball was the victim of a phone prank by a Howard Stern fan pretending to be a member of the U.S. military in Ukraine who witnessed the Malaysian Airlines flight 117 crash. "Well, I was looking out the window and I saw a projectile flying in the sky and it would appear the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern's ass," the man said. "So it would appear the plane was shot down, can you tell us anything more from your military training of sort of missile system that may have been coming...

    It was strange. Joe Scarborough had just completed a comprehensive indictment of failed American foreign policy around the globe. But at the very moment when he should have laid those disasters at the feet of the sitting President of the United States, Scarborough came down with a bad case of . . . cold feet. Scarborough laid out to David Gregory a tour d'horizon of failed American foreign policy from the Middle East, to Iran, to Russia/Ukraine, describing it as "one disaster after another." But perhaps fearful of where the ineluctable logic of his comments was taking him, Scarborough suddenly...

    MSNBC host Michael Eric Dyson on Wednesday lashed out at Sarah Palin, accusing the conservative of committing "treason" against Barack Obama by calling for the President´s impeachment. The guest host of the Ed Show first praised the President for "his tireless effort to help [illegal children who have crossed the border]." Dyson then fumed, "The President´s push towards positive and crucial change was met with treasonous accusations." [See video below.

But it seems he has a whole different opinion of the militant ISIS jihadis marauding through Iraq, killing everyone and everything in sight. While discussing the group’s worldwide recruiting effort, he called it a “heroic romantic struggle.” You can see the video of that below, and note that Hayes says in another part of the clip that he doesn’t say things unless he stands by every word. So, even though Hayes offered an apology for dissing U.S. veterans, he really meant it...

While O’Donnell appeared totally healed from his ordeal, he came back a changed man on at least one issue: the Koch brothers. In an emotional monologue, O’Donnell opened up about the taxi accident that sent him and his brother to a hospital – a hospital which he praised profusely.

Farrow was shocked that the winner, David Brat, had dared to campaign among the tea party rabble, being the professor he is: "Is it rare to see that kind of brazen intellectualism, particularly in populist candidates like this?" Translation: How did he win among knuckle-dragging Virginia racists with that spiel? In response, Matthews unleashed something almost as unexpected as the Cantor defeat. He came to the tea party's defense. "I don't think...

As the Daily Beast puts it, ISIS is the terrorist organization so extreme that it was "booted" from Al Qaeda proper. They organized, trained, took Mosul and, as a result, have now confiscated gobs of formerly-U.S. military hardware. With the fall of Mosul on Tuesday, Iraq’s al Qaeda offshoot has not only seized the country’s second-largest city, it appears it also has come into possession of the...

Mr. Will writes that empty buzzwords like "triggers" and "micro-aggressions" are now thrown around colleges to the point of ubiquity.

Matthews opened his program Monday with a deeply suspicious look into Bergdahl’s statements and actions before he went inexplicably missing from his post in the summer of 2009. In particular, the MSNBC host highlighted portions of a piece by late Rolling Stone reporter Michael Hastings, which...

Slaves who could not escape were doomed to toil, and frequently their children and grandchildren suffered the same fate.

    “Thnx Mr. President!” That’s what former MSNBC anchor Dylan Ratigan had to say to President Obama in a tweet earlier today. He was saying it sarcastically. You know, like when you say “thanks a lot!” to someone who bumps into you in the hallway, causing you to spill your coffee all over your clothes. But Mr. Ratigan experienced something far worse than a coffee spill. His health insurance premiums are skyrocketing thanks to the hilariously named Affordable Care Act. What happened? Well, for starters, Ratigan had catastrophic health insurance coverage. That means that he sees himself as pretty healthy and...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton must be thrilled about this: “If you are President Barack Obama and you want to be a transformational president, getting to that transformational stage sometimes requires you get a third term,” NBC News Senior Politics Editor Mark Murray submitted amid a sleepy Monday segment packed with idle speculation about the 2016 election cycle. “People in the White House, and President Obama, I am sure they would love to have a third or fourth term,” Murray continued. “That is some of the reasons why some of the people in the Obama orbit are happy about...

    ˇAy caramba! Imagine the cries of offensive ethnic stereotyping or worse if Fox News had observed Cinco de Mayo by having one of its yanqui persons of pallor staggering across the set in a sombrero while chugging from a pint bottle of tequila? But it happened on MSNBC, so the PC police probably won't make a peep about it. At the today's transition from Way Too Early to Morning Joe, there was producer Louis Burgdorf with his Halloween-store sombrero and pint bottle. Way Too Early host Thomas Roberts encouraged Burgdorf "to drink the whole thing and eat the worm," meaning...

    Truth Revolt ^ | 5/3/14 | Caleb Howe
    On MSNBC Friday night, Chris Hayes was both shocked and dismayed to realize that people tried to figure out what party Donald Sterling was a member of or voted for. "You know what was one of the weirdest things about the whole Donald Sterling blow-up? It was the rush in the first moments after the story broke by a variety of conservatives to call Donald Sterling a Democrat. Someone out there thought, hey, I bet this guy is a Democrat, and looked up his donation records to find he had given some money to a few Democratic candidates a few...

    Well, except for when we constantly do all the time. But besides that. Shown are clips from MSNBC in the days following the Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling stories. Then the video breaks into a contrast, showing the different topics that MSNBC talked about prior to those stories. And by different, we mean totally exactly the same. With our without Bundy or Sterling, MSNBC has one well they never stop going back to. It’s their most favoritest topic. And they Just. Never. Learn. “No matter how many times we say we’re going to have a conversation about race, we never...

    In another example of a sort-of cultural suicide where western media types assume that all Muslims are blameless – while all Americans are at fault in this clash of civilizations between Islamism and the West – we have a recent episode of MSNBC’s Hardball with one-time Democratic operative Chuck Todd standing-in for host Chris Matthews. Todd was discussing the riots in Afghanistan sparked by Islamist ire over the burning of a Koran by a Florida pastor. During the interview Todd and a guest stated that the Christian Bible was just a book written by men while the Koran was the...

    Joe Klein waited till the very end of 2011, but has managed to make a strong bid for Most Asinine Assertion of the Year. Appearing on Morning Joe today, Klein claimed that Iran's interest in getting nukes would "just be to deter Israel" and Pakistan. Certainly when it comes to Israel, this has to be among the most hideous instances of blaming the victim in recent memory. View the video here.

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Joe Klein, by the way, Joe Klein, TIME Magazine, big, big Drive-By Media emeritus lib.  He says that CNN's gone in the toilet and MSNBC's got a criminal on there, Al Sharpton, and he's turned to Fox.  This is at the 92nd Street Y.  Jeff Greenfield speaking with Joe Klein, this is Sunday night, New York City. KLEIN:  I turn on CNN at six o'clock at night because that's something I kind of do in preparation for the 6:30 network news to see what Wolf is being really hyperbolic about, and he's talking about the plane!  It...
