    NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC on Monday solidified its prime-time lineup by appointing Alex Wagner to fill Rachel Maddow's time slot four nights a week, Tuesday through Friday. Wagner, who has worked at CBS News, as a co-host of Showtime's “The Circus” and as an editor at The Atlantic, is on her second stint at MSNBC. She rejoined MSNBC in February after hosting a show on the network a decade ago. Maddow will continue to work in her 9 p.m. Eastern time slot on Monday nights, MSNBC said. It's an important move for the liberal-leaning news network and its president,...

    Former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that Sen. Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) questioning of Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson was “awkward.” Guest-host Alex Wagner said, “Claire, what of the drama starring Lindsey Graham, written by Lindsey Graham, lighting and costumes by Lindsey Graham? Lindsey Graham brought the fireworks, the drama, this afternoon when he took his moment to question Judge Jackson to unleash a litany of complaints about how conservatives have been mistreated in hearings and otherwise more broadly in society and stormed out of the hearing. What did you make of that performance

    Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “All In” that the upcoming vote in Congress to sanction Russia for their invasion into Ukrainian territory will expose if Republican lawmakers are “appeasers” of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Guest-host Alex Wagner said, “President Trump’s comments today calling Putin’s moves genius probably haven’t helped anything. You are really convinced that next week when you guys are back in session, Republicans are going to play ball with Democrats and effectively work to further the Biden foreign policy agenda, the national security agenda?”

    And now, a word from Joe Biden’s basement. – Some would call this ‘mixed messaging.’ Others would call it vacant eyes and an inability to form words into coherent sentences.

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) The Creepy Plagiarist strikes again. Joe Biden’s biggest problem…well, ok, his biggest problem is that he can’t keep his hands off of women and children in inappropriate ways…Joe Biden’s second biggest problem is that his mind has always been an empty vessel waiting to be filled by the ideas of others. The simple fact of the matter is that Joe Biden has precious few original thoughts, and the few he does have invariably end up blurting out of his gaping mouth at inconvenient moments. Like the time he said that all 7/11...

    Alex Wagner of Showtime’s “The Circus” has released an op-ed urging Democrats to view former Vice President Joseph R. Biden as a “vessel” and an “idea” if they want President Trump defeated at the ballot box. The writer penned “Stay Alive, Joe Biden” for The Atlantic this week, which serves as a blueprint for realizing a Democrat as the 46th commander in chief.

    Two days before the South Carolina primary that would reverse his political fortunes and redirect the course of the Democratic nomination, Joe Biden’s campaign for president announced a hastily planned event in McClellanville, South Carolina. The national campaign press was alerted that Biden would enter full battle mode at this stop, that the proverbial gloves were about to come off ahead of the kill-or-be-killed primary on Saturday, and no one would want to miss this one.

    Former MSNBC host Ed Schultz opened up in a recent interview about why he believes he was fired in 2015. Schultz, who’s now anchor of a show on RT, told National Review‘s Jamie Weinstein that he believes it was because he supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), which was problematic, he charged, because the network was “in the tank for Hillary Clinton.”He described how MSNBC chief Phil Griffin was a "watchdog" who closely managed which stories were covered, and relayed one incident where his story about Sanders’s launch of his campaign was bumped in favor of other news. Sanders gave his official campaign...

    The MSM can’t stop talking about Donald Trump having brought onto his campaign the Chairman of Breitbart News. But Hillary’s closest aide being for 12 years an editor of an Islamist magazine that among other things blamed the US for 9/11? Meh! On today’s With All Due Respect, guest co-host Alex Wagner seconded the excuse that the Clinton campaign is shopping. Said Wagner: “as you and I have both worked on magazines, we know that there are a lot of editors who do absolutely nothing but are listed on mastheads anyway.” John Heilemann similarly argued that while his title at...

    The morning after Al Sharpton was booted to the Sunday morning desert from his evening show, and not long after Ed Schultz and Alex Wagner were relieved of their hosting duties, Joe Scarborough has profusely thanked NBC News honcho Andrew Lack for making those changes. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough was discussing stunning poll results in which the first word that came to voters' minds about Hillary was "liar." Asked what was the worst thing said about him in such polling, Scarborough said "he works for MSNBC was always the worst." But Joe then added, his hands steepled in a...

    American Thinker ^ | 08/01/2015 | Rick Moran
    In the wake of the decision by MSNBC to drop three of its most incendiary liberal programs, former hosts Ed Schultz of The Ed Show and Alex Wagner of Now with Alex Wagner exited with about as much class as you'd expect. Schultz apparently threw a tantrum and refused to appear on his last show.  In his place, Michael Eric Dyson gave what Mediaite calls an "understated" farewell. First and perhaps most importantly, Ed Schultz wasn’t even present to give his final MSNBC farewell — due to “pre-existing scheduling conflicts,” MSNBC told us. Instead Michael Eric Dyson guest-hosted the full hour and saved...

    Shows being canceled outright include The Cycle, a multiple-host show similar to Fox’s The Five, Now with Alex Wagner, and The Ed Show. Alex Wagner is expected to remain with the network as is Ari Melber, one of the co-hosts of The Cycle. However, TV Newser reports that Ed Schultz, Abby Huntsman, Toure, and Krystal Ball are “out.” The Ed Show, which aired at 5pm, will be replaced by a new hour-long program at 5pm hosted by Chuck Todd. Also coming to the network’s rescue is disgraced NBC anchor Brian Williams, who was pushed out of his job at the...

    FULL TITLE: MSNBC Guest Compares Getting an Abortion to Donating Blood; ‘There Are Costs Associated With Donation’ While appearing on the Tuesday edition of MSNBC’s Now, Dr. Anne Davis of the Physicians for Reproductive Health compared undergoing an abortion to donating blood in context of the Planned Parenthood video scandal and that both have “costs associated with [the] donation” of giving “fetal tissue” over to “science.” Davis was guided through the discussion by host Alex Wagner, who insisted that she confirm the “numbers that are thrown out” per baby by Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council President Dr. Mary Gatter in...

    What does MSNBC's Alex Wagner have against stately Indian warriors? On today's Morning Joe, Wagner said it was "amazing" that anyone could look at the Washington Redskins logo and name and not find it controversial. This NewsBuster can understand the debate over the "Redskins" name. But the logo? Has Alex actually had a look at the logo? Could Wagner be confusing it with the Cleveland Indians' Chief Yahoo? Seriously, what could be more stately, grave and dignified than the Redskin logo? View the video here.

    Ah! The nudge to remove Hillary Clinton from the stage. Some get it. Some don't. Among those who don't get it is Alex Wagner who lacks the subtlety to see that the exit of Hillary could very probably mean the entrance of the "progressive" heroine, Elizabeth Warren. Lawrence O'Donnell gets it which is probably why he was very critical of Hillary's email situation. The subtext in this video seems to be Lawrence O'Donnell trying to ease Hillary from the scene as Alex continues to guzzle the Clinton Kool-Aide without really thinking ahead. First we shall see Alex perform her Clinton...

    Although he announced his plans earlier this month, we were hoping against HOPE that he would change his mind.

She’s a former political activist and music-magazine editor, so she’s probably got a great future at Ms.NBC.

    Talk about the soft bigotry of low expectations: Alex Wagner has demonstrated that Barack Obama is no kind of emperor or dictator . . . compared to Kim Jong Un, the brutal ruler of perhaps the world's worst regime, North Korea. Wagner was riffing off the news that Kim has banned North Korean parents from naming their children Jong Un and ordered those already bearing the name to change it. After describing other elements of Kim's cult of personality, Wagner concluded: "to all the detractors who compare our American president to an emperor and a dictator, this is what a...

    As you may have heard, we’re now only four days away from the 2014 midterms and gubernatorial races mercifully coming to an end, save for a likely runoff in Louisiana. And as you’ve also heard lately, race–for all the wrong reasons–has become a central theme for the party in blue. Speaking of the Bayou State, its likely-to-be-unemployed-after-said-runoff and current senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) had this to say to Chuck Todd (a good get via hustle by the new MTP moderator, by the way) regarding the reason behind her not inviting President Obama for help on the campaign trail: “The South...
