Putting fake news in quotes was a nice touch.

If I don’t, the crew mashes the report button on me.  This board needs all the MAGA supporters on standby when the Barr hammer falls on the “coup”.

Does she still have a show after the conspiracy theories she spun?

Yes and it is still popular with Democrats, progressives and liberals.

And she will have a show after the Trump Presidency ends and for many years after that.

How can Comey state to the FICA court (or whatever it’s called) that everything in report is true the a few days later tell trump it’s an unverified report?  

This appears to be weaponization of government against trump that failed and I want to know if any wrong doing occurred. Big dog Barr is going to be on it.

Everything in what report?  You realize the “salacious and unverified” thing wasnt about the whole dossier, right?  Nor was the whole dossier used in the FISA documents/court.

That isn’t weaponization of anything other than using known intelligence and facts which multiple federal judges had to sign off on.

And Barr is going to do something about that?

That is what I though I heard.  How could they not after all the lies she spun and hours she invested in the phony Russian conspiracy theory.

She spun no lies, at least any that I could see in the link provided. Most of that was speculation on her part or asking hypotheticals, but not statements of facts on her part.

I used to watch Maddow almost every night but it seems all she talked about was Trump/Russians which was fine at first but after a year or so it got too repetitive. I want to hear other news as well.

Thank God, MSNBC will not be programming what is essentially a Trump Re-Election rally presented as a July 4th Celebration.

https://twitter.com/kylegriffin1/status/1146516475961839616

MSNBC is not planning to air Trump's July 4th celebration live

Daily reminder that MSNBC fired Phil Donahue for opposing the Iraq War. 

That was before they morphed into the liberal/progressive voice of cable news that they are today.

More of a corporate Democrat network than anything else.  If they were actually progressive, and not a bunch of empty suits owned by Comcast, they wouldn't platform Bill Kristol.

I haven't seen them platform Bill Kristol. He is on occasionally as a voice for the other side but you make it sound like he has his own show.

Maddow`s show still in a nose dive. Squis-:sadbanana:?

 

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow,  posted its lowest-rated month since Donald Trump took office, finishing May in third place overall with a total audience of 2.61 million viewers. Maddow's MSNBC colleagues Lawrence O'Donnell and Chris Hayes also finished in the top ten overall, with O'Donnell's The Last Word drawing 2 million total viewers (6th place overall), and Hayes' All In reaching 1.6 million viewers (9th place overall).

CNN continued to struggle in third place, with none of the network's prime-time shows breaking one million total viewers. Cuomo Prime Time, the network's highest-rated show, drew an audience of 938,000 total viewers, finishing in 25th place overall, behind programs airing on Fox and MSNBC in daytime and late night when viewership is typically significantly lower than in prime. CNN's Anderson Cooper finished the month in 26th place, with a total audience of 916,000 viewers.

Overall, Fox News had the largest audience in prime, with an average of 2.388 million viewers, followed by MSNBC with 1.654 million. Compared to the same period one year ago, both Fox and MSNBC were flat, while CNN, which drew 761,000 viewers in May, fell 9% compared to one year ago.

Here they are, platforming "woke" Bill Kristol: https://youtu.be/SnAGwA9zmI8

When did Bill Kristol, a bloodthirsty psychopath who shilled the Iraq War, become the representative for 'the other side'?   There are conservatives who oppose war and Kristol's disastrous neocon brand.  It's pretty gross of MSNBC to allow him to soil the airwaves.

Don't give me one isolated December 2018 clip and then claim it is proof that MSNBC is platforming Bill Kristol. Please.

Walter Cronkite unnerved a nation 56 years ago, by taking off his glasses.

The video has been seen by countless millions over the decades: Cronkite announcing on live television in 1963 the death of President Kennedy. He stops for a moment, removes his glasses, composes himself and moves on. That gesture rattled Americans because they expected journalists to convey a calm sense of authority, a reassuring stoicism in the face of Cold War standoffs, civil unrest and even the assassination of a president.

Things have changed. Emotion now blankets the media landscape like an infant’s crib at bedtime. Google “Shepard Smith emotional,” and up come nearly 3 million results, many of them focused on the Fox anchor’s recent visceral response to immigrant suffering. A search of “Rachel Maddow crying” delivers more than 1 million offerings, many for the MSNBC host’s reaction to border detentions and the Mueller report. “Brooke Baldwin tears” uncovers nearly 2 million entries for the CNN reporter’s reaction to a variety of news events.

They are not alone. Contemporary culture trusts feelings over facts, rewards heated emotion — tears or anger — and rejects medium cool. The effect on journalism is unmistakable. And a lot of the blame can be placed on those all-too-common twin devils: television and the internet.

From the earliest days of television, journalists understood the power of an image to overwhelm objectivity. That’s why Cronkite and others worked hard to present the news without emotional cues: no raised eyebrows, head-shaking, or wide-eyed incredulity. They presented the news simply, expecting this would counteract that gut-level response all humans have to striking images.
