    Is it ethical for one network to try to scare off a competitor's sponsors? The question arises because MSNBC's Joe Scarborough sought today to scare off Fox News sponsors. At the beginning of today's Morning Joe, Scarborough, speaking of Fox News, said: "We’ll worry about our channel and let them worry about their channel." But Scarborough soon went back on his word. Just moments later, he actively tried to warn sponsors away from Fox News, saying: "Fox News had someone I know, a former leader of the Republican Party, saying that Democrats wanted—and I’m using his words here—Democrats wanted to,...

    Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. and Kamala Devi Harris were sworn in to office as US President and Vice President Wednesday morning, marking then end of now-former US President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence's tenure in office. While Biden's inauguration was broadcast across MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN on Wednesday, the three networks and their talking heads took different approaches in their coverage and commentary. Fox News The Fox News Channel took a very comparative and more critical approach to Biden's inauguration than its competitors, highlighting the administration transition from Republican to Democrat control. The outlet also echoed right-wing...

    WASHINGTON — After last week's deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol by supporters of President Donald Trump, members of Congress are expressing something once unthinkable: that some of their own colleagues may be endangering their lives. Not in a rhetorical sense, but in a direct and immediate way. "It's the most poisonous I've ever seen," Rep. Don Beyer, D-Va., said in an interview. "There's the overall sense that maybe if some of them have guns — and likely the ones who are more into conspiracy theories and QAnon with the pedophilic satanic rings — are we safe from them?"

    Friday, MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough doubled down on his argument that the Republican Party is “what we read in the history books about Hitler.” This comes in the wake of a group of President Donald Trump supporters rioting at the U.S. Capitol and members of Congress saying they fear for their lives for voting to impeach Trump. Scarborough, a former GOP congressman, said the party that belongs to Trump is “intimidating” opponents “with threats of death” and violence in support of a “fascist president.”

    Nikole Hannah-Jones, of the NYT’s 1619 Project, appeared on MSNBC’s Morning Joe Tuesday, to join the panel in attacking Senators Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz, as well as the 74 million Americans who voted for President Trump this past election as evil racists akin to the KKK. Panelist Eugene Robinson from The Washington Post even demanded “millions” of Americans needed to be “deprogrammed.” The disgusting segment began with co-host Joe Scarborough posing to Hannah Jones that Trump supporters were actually well-educated and wealthy Americans (such as these two Senators), and not blue collar rubes, as the narrative goes. This led...

    Fox News, which has watched its ratings leadership slip since the election loss of President Trump, announced a major revamp of its daytime lineup Monday. The conservative-leaning network, which is typically the dominant leader among cable news viewers, has seen CNN and MSNBC surpass it in the Nielsen ratings in many hours throughout the day since the Nov. 3 election. -snip- The major change is the move of "The Story With Martha MacCallum" out of its 7 p.m. Eastern time slot to make way for a new opinion show, tentatively named "Fox News Primetime," which will have a rotating group...

    The rise of Newsmax TV has caused a major shake-up at Fox News, which announced Monday that its early evening show host Martha MacCallum has been demoted back to an early afternoon slot, among other changes to the lineup. "Newsmax's consistently strong numbers during the day and especially at the 7 p.m. ET slot has caused panic at Fox, which rarely makes lineup changes," Newsmax said in a statement Monday, adding with a wink, "The Fox is on the run." MacCallum's "The Story" had long been the #1 cable news show in the 7 p.m. time slot, until Newsmax TV's...
  • MSNBC Dismisses GOP Denunciation of Violence, Whole Party Is Now ‘Violent,’ ‘Fascist’ (Rachel Maddow goes full retard)

    The fact that scores of conservatives and Republicans have come out and condemned both the violence at the Capitol, as well Donald Trump himself, is apparently lost on MSNBC. Rachel Maddow on Wednesday night smeared the entire GOP as “fascist,” “violent, insurrectionist party.” Joy Reid mocked Republican condemnations, saying they “don’t matter.” But first, Maddow slimed, “I mean the idea that the Republican Party is going to somehow defy the label of being a violent, insurrectionist party with fascist markers is hard to see when their internal discipline is stern speeches and no rebukes.”

    Stacey Abrams, the failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate (who still hasn’t conceded her 2018 defeat to Brian Kemp) expects Democrats Jon Ossoff and Rev. Raphael Warnock to win both Georgia Senate runoff elections. “I think we’re ready to get it done,” Abrams told Stephen Colbert Monday night. “I put my money on blue.” Why is she so confident? I have a hunch. Abrams was also on MSNBC Monday night, and couldn’t help patting herself on the back for getting rid of exact-match signature verification on ballots—a provision meant to verify that the voters who cast the ballots are actually the individuals...

    DALTON, Ga. - President Donald Trump on Monday headlined a rally ostensibly to drum up support for the two incumbent Republicans the night before their crucial Senate runoffs, but quickly shifted to attacking members of his own party, spreading misinformation about voter fraud and re-litigating both the 2016 and 2020 elections. President-elect Joe Biden won Georgia by nearly 12,000 votes and is set to be sworn into office later this month despite Trump’s repeated attempts to overturn the results. Trump has spent weeks pressuring Republican Sen. Kelly Loeffler and Republican David Perdue, whose Senate term expired Sunday, to entertain his...

    Nothing bespeaks a city's healthy, vibrant culture like a big "adult entertainment industry," and the proliferation of strip clubs! At least, if you listen to Tiffany Cross . . . On her MSNBC show this morning, Cross devoted a segment to a political ad currently running in Georgia called, "Get Your Booty to the Poll." It features strippers dancing around a "pole" urging black voters to get to the "poll" in the Senate run-off elections. Cross had as a guest the creator of the ad. Cross bragged about how the "adult entertainment industry" in Atlanta brings in more money than...

Take Brittney Cooper, on Jonathan Capehart's MSNBC show this morning. Capehart invited the Rutgers professor of Women's, Gender, and Africana Studies, and frequent MSNBC guest, to comment on a clip of Mitt Romney flatly declaring, "it's not going to happen." That was Romney's response to reports that at a White House meeting on Friday, the possibility of invoking martial law was discussed, along with the possible appointment of Sidney Powell as a special...
