    LSSC: Season Four Talk

    I don't think I've ever seen a Ricky Gervais interview where he didn't talk about his atheism. Certainly never on LSSC. Can we expect to see him later this week on Rescue Dog Rescue? Unfortunately, the people who most need to hear it aren't listening.

    S01.E02: 2001

    I have to confess I was a Fox News watcher in the pre-9/11 days. I believed them when they said they were fair and balanced, although I realized they skewed more conservative than the other networks. I really believe, in hindsight, that back then they were not the partisan shills they are today. I can't remember when I decided not to watch them any more, but I haven't been able to watch them in years. Am I silly to be impressed by the scenes where a Brit using an Australian accent plays against a New Zealander/Aussie using an American accent? And how interesting of the producers to include, without comment, in the video wall Roger is watching on 9/11, in the left corner the late great Tim Russert, and in the right corner the future 45.

    AM Joy

    That's kind of the problem most of the time. Usually by the time Joy gets her turn on the weekend, the issues of the week have been long since hashed out elsewhere. Almost never is there any new or interesting analysis by anyone. And if it's tired by Saturday, it's dead by Sunday. She might benefit from a one hour format rather than having to pad two hours on two days. I have my DVR set to record her, but most of the time I delete it outright, or after the first half hour or so out of boredom.

    AM Joy

    And that's what is so great about these investigative journalists like David Corn. They aren't just looking to nail someone; they actually want to verify and report the truth. I didn't understand the point of Joy's taped interview with James Patterson, at all. And then just keep playing clips and getting reactions from the panel?

    All Episodes Talk: TRMS 2019 Season

    I'm probably a terrible person for saying this, but as a voter evaluating the candidates, immigration is just not a priority for me. All the Democrats are going to say basically similar things anyway. I know the media is going bananas with all the horror stories about the camps, but I wanted Rachel, in an almost 30 minute interview, to ask Kamala Harris about something other than immigration. What little else got included was Kamala herself bringing up things like tariffs and the economy, and 30 seconds on ACA at the end. Not ok.

    All Episodes Talk: TRMS 2019 Season

    I think that was the first time I've been able to listen to an entire Bernie Sanders interview without either throwing something or muting the teevee in frustration. I give credit to Rachel for that. Didn't know Bernie had a mode other than angry old man. I'd still rather listen to Chuck Rosenberg all day long, though. I practically squee every time he's on the air.

    All Episodes Talk: TRMS 2019 Season

    Most likely because she'd just finished a long interview by Anderson Cooper at CNN and had to trek over to NBC's studios. Which makes the big banner at the top, TRMS EXCLUSIVE, beyond ridiculous. It's exclusive in that it's the only interview of Megan Rapinoe by Rachel Maddow, which completely strips the meaning of "exclusive." Like MSNBC has done with "breaking news."

    I don't understand what you mean. Amy McGrath is married to a man and they have three kids together.

    Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

    In fairness to Sen Klobuchar (whom I happen to support, but I agree hasn't much of a chance), her seat's not up for reelection next year so she's not risking it by running for Prez. And honestly, the Democrats in the Senate pretty much have nothing to do these days. McConnell railroads through what he wants to pass without their help, and bottlenecks everything else. The minority party is little more than a placeholder under current Senate rules, with the small exception of the very few times a supermajority is required. Those are a different stripe. Bullock is term limited out of running again as governor, and Hickenlooper is already out of office, each in a state with a chance to unseat a Republican Senate incumbent. Joe S. needs to get his ego in check. He may be a lapsed Republican, but he isn't a Democrat. He and all the never-Trumpers are really quick to tell the Democrats what to do, but haven't a clue how to repair the party they've fled.

    S06.E15: Impeachment

    "Henrietta, if the blue ribbon ding-dong dipshit you married has finished pissing in the antique coffee urn and wiping his dick on the doilies, might you ask him to please pass the crumpets?"

    Morning Joe: All Episodes Talk

    Either somebody forgot to invite him to be one of the House impeachment managers, or his invitation got lost in the mail. Seriously, Joe was the sponsor of 63 bills (so, about 10 per year), of which a whopping two became law. Definitely the lion of the House.

    All In With Chris Hayes

    I think Chris figured he's had a little bit of luck in the past interviewing Republican congressmen, and thought he'd have the same success here. You can't interview someone who completely ignores your questions and just screams out his canned, fake talking points over your questions. Another host would have pulled the plug halfway through. I know I did.

    LSSC: Season Four Talk

    Hate to be technical, but it wouldn't be the Turtle signing the bill. I hate it. It's creepy in the same vein as two heads in a box. Come out and sit in a chair like a normal person. Yes. Nothing against Trevor Noah, but I desperately wish Jon had not given up the Daily Show.
