    Appearing on this evening’s Hardball, Rep. Karen Bass, a Democrat and leader of the Congressional Black Caucus, twice accused Republican Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue of “flat-out lying” by saying that they didn’t hear President Trump refer to various countries as “s—holes.” Bass then took things an ugly step further, insinuating that President Trump might have bribed the two senators in some way. Said Bass: “I think that they’re flat-out lying. And maybe they’re getting something from the President for it.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, host of “Hardball,” was conspicuously absent from a scheduled “Meet The Press” appearance on Sunday morning. Matthews announced the scheduled appearance on a pre-taped episode of “Hardball” on Friday, and it was noted in the Friday edition of POLITICO’s Playbook. Matthews may have chosen to sit out the appearance because of a 2016 video uncovered by New York Magazine’s The Cut late Friday, which showed him joking about drugging and raping then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. “This was a terrible comment I made in poor taste during the height of the Bill Cosby headlines,” Matthews told The Cut....

    On Sunday's AM Joy on MSNBC, as frequent guest Jennifer Rubin was finally being credited as an "MSNBC political analyst," the alleged "conservative" Washington Post columnist demonstrated that she will continue to use her new MSNBC contributor status to deliver liberal analysis as she demonized a Republican guest by asking her if she is an "inhumane beast" who was "raised by wolves." Notably, just a couple of days ago, Rubin declared that she still wishes to be identified as a "conservative" when Hardball host Chris Matthews wondered if he should drop the "conservative" label for her as he admitted that...

    "Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?" he said in leaked audio published by 'New York' magazine. MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews has apologized for making an inappropriate joke about Bill Cosby before an interview with then-candidate Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail in January 2016. "Can I have some of the queen's waters? Precious waters?" Matthews is heard and shown saying in a clip obtained and published by New York magazine's The Cut on Friday. In the clip, Matthews then asks: "Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?" (His crew looks visibly uncomfortable, and a man...
  • Sharpton Admits: Took Time for Me to Understand MLK’s Message—”Tone Matters”

    Say “Al Sharpton” in conservative circles, and the likely response is a recitation of his incendiary past, including Tawana Brawley, the Crown Heights Riot and Freddie’s Fashion Mart. But people can and do change. And when people on the left change in a positive way, it’s good for us on the right to acknowledge it. So I’m going to say something that might not be well received by some fellow conservatives, but that I believe is true: Al Sharpton has become a more mellow, constrained and responsible person. I first wrote about it six years ago, during the Trayvon Martin...
  • Fake News: No, MSNBC Producer, A U.S. Diplomat Didn't Resign Because Of Trump's 'S**thole' Remarks

    President Trump was the center of another firestorm. During immigration negotiations with congressional leaders, the president reportedly said why are we letting people in from “s**thole countries.” Now, he was probably referring to the nations with temporary protective status, but the media blew a gasket. In the aftermath, the U.S. Ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, decided to resign, citing his inability to no longer being able to serve President Trump. The timing was just a coincidence, but some in the media decided to jump the gun and say that he resigned over the president’s remarks. One MSNBC producer took to...

    On January 5, 2016, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews interviewed Hillary Clinton in an Iowa fire station during the Democratic primary season. Network footage obtained by the Cut shows Matthews, during the interview setup, making a couple of “jokes” about Clinton. He asks, “Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” And then, as he waits for the water, he adds, “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” Matthews then laughs, delighted with the line, for an extended moment, as the staffers around him react with disbelief, clearly uncomfortable. (Cosby has been accused of sexual impropriety...

    "I had a friend that went to Paris over the holiday, and they said they were just viscerally embarrassed to be American,” Brzezinski claimed. “They said it was the first time that it was sort of chilling.”.... Maybe Mika’s friends should stay in Paris if they’re too embarrassed to admit that they are American. We might be better off.

    Life Time has scrubbed all-news cable channels from the screens at its fitness centers, saying a growing number of customers think they don’t fit a healthy lifestyle. The Chanhassen-based company this week dropped CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and CNBC from TVs in front of various workout machines. While the screens were in view of all in fitness areas, audio could only be heard through earphones. With a few exceptions, TV screens built into treadmills and other cardio machines also “currently do not have the ability to display these channels,” Life Time spokeswoman Natalie Bushaw said Thursday. However, a second phase...

    In July, MSNBC host and former Rep. Joe Scarborough showily announced on Stephen Colbert's CBS show that he was leaving the Republican Party. No one on the Republican National Committee flew a flag at half-mast. The announcement was at least a decade behind the reality. In 2006, he basically called then-President Bush an idiot. Last week, he did the same to President Trump. There is consistency here from the man who craves attention. Scarborough is the MSNBC equivalent of David Gergen, someone always twiddling his spit-covered finger in the wind and switching his allegiances depending on which option benefits him...

    Before Christmas, it was revealed that MSNBC’s Chris Matthews had settled a sexual harassment claim back in 1999. The Daily Caller first reported on this story, which was confirmed by NBC News. Called a “separation-related payment,” an NBC producer received some $40,000, though NBC says the payment was much less. Matthews is part of a string of men who have been accused, and in some cases, fired for sexual misconduct. Today’s Matt Lauer was fired such behavior. CBS News’ Charlie Rose was dismissed as well. Mark Halperin of NBC News was also given the axe. Matthews still has his job...

    MSNBC Host Chris Matthews runs an at times openly derisive and brazenly sexist news operation that has led at least some staffers to describe themselves as victims of “battered wives syndrome,” according to three of his show’s guests and two former producers who spoke exclusively to The Daily Caller. Two former NBC producers independently alleged Matthews would rate the looks of his female guests on a scale and said Matthews was so abusive that staff joked about being battered women. The interviews in total paint Matthews as a tyrant liable to fly off the handle at the slightest mistake, who...

    On Thursday's MTP Daily on MSNBC, during the show's regular "The Lid" segment, substitute host Katy Tur and her three guests fretted over the failure of gun control advocates to pass any new gun laws in the aftermath of high-profile mass shootings in 2017. Even the lone Republican-leaning panel member -- MSNBC contributor Susan Del Percio -- was coming down on the left-leaning side of the issue as she also seemed unhappy with Congress moving ahead with expanding concealed carry rights nationwide. Tur began the segment by asking if there were any stories that should have received more media attention...

    A guest on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” oddly declared Friday that she is worried President Trump may try to invalidate the 2018 midterm elections to avoid a Democratic Congress --- something the President can’t actually do. Regular co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski were absent, but Republican pollster and Washington Examiner columnist Kristen Soltis Anderson more than made up for the extreme anti-Trump rhetoric that MSNBC viewers have come to expect from the liberal morning show. Soltis Anderson said she is worried that if Republicans face large losses in 2018, President Trump will fear having a Democratic Congress that may begin...

    Even The Huffington Post cannot let the down-ballot gutting of the Democrats go unnoticed. Senior politics editor Sam Stein was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Wednesday, where he said that while Obama was re-elected twice proving himself to be an excellent candidate—his party has suffered catastrophic losses during his presidency. In all, the Democrats have lost 1,030 seats at the state and federal level, a wipeout of at least a generation of Democratic talent. Stein added that with such a political butcher’s bill, you have to ask whether this man was good for Democrats (via The Hill):

Partial transcript as follows: JACKSON: Before I let you go, I need to ask you about the president and his tweets. He’s been fairly quiet Christmas day, but the president is tweeting about the FBI. He’s been tweeting about his Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, why is that the right message right now for Donald Trump and Republicans? ROONEY: Well, there’s two issues here. Yes, the president...

    Pro-Trump group America First Policies plans to air its “Merry Christmas” ad 11 times over a week on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” beginning on Christmas day, The Daily Caller has learned. The ad, previewed on Fox News Wednesday, quickly went viral on social media for featuring citizens “thanking” President Trump for various achievements in the last year. The ad famously ends with a young girl thanking Trump “for letting us say Merry Christmas again.”

    MSNBC says it has decided not to renew a contract with paid contributor Joan Walsh, and the news caused an uproar on social media by some of the network's top talent. Walsh says on her Twitter account she learned of the New York-based network's decision Friday while baking pies with her daughter. MSNBC hosts Chris Hayes and Joy Reid have tweeted in support of Walsh. Reid called the network's decision 'short sighted' and added 'Given the momentousness of next year's anniversaries: the women's march, the King and RFK assassinations ... we need to be at full strength as media entities,...
