    Same old, same old…some one please turn off the lights at msnBS!


    matthews signs new contract why?

  • van

    So which demo did MSNBC take 1st in? NONE, ZERO, ZIPPO, NADA! No one is liking the Hate News or “Lean Forward” crap. Go ahead and spin it as best as you can. It is not working any more. The Koolaid hang over is starting to sink in.

  • Ralph Hahn

    MSNBC ratings continue to plumment down like a greased-rail elevator in the GE Bldg. with full capacity+ and no brakes.

    How long before executives with Comcast finally throw up their hands and say: “No mas, no mas” while throwing-up?

  • Ralph Hahn

    Once again, “The Five” is #2 in cable news just behind Bill O’Reilly.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @van: Hey! “Hate News.” I LIKE that.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Me: >>> MSNBC ratings continue to plummen*t down like a greased-rail elevator in the GE Bldg. with full capacity+ and no brakes. <<<

    * I caught the adding of an 'n' which is NOT in the word plummet.

  • Tammy

    The Chris Hayes wrecker is the best thing that’s ever happened to Anderson Cooper.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Next on Monday’s cable news ratings…someone will post the numbers on the broadcast network evening news and (wrongly) compare it to cable news, which gives you 22-minutes of news and cable news is on 24/7. Or, you might find someone else tying Obama’s millions of voters vs. Fox News’s numbers. (I don’t remember seeing FNC on the Presidential ballot.) Or nonsensical 11-word and 27-word useless lists that are total fabrications and Dem talking points from other wiser/dumber liberal bloggers. OH, and the biggest lie of all: “Fox is tanking, MSNBC is moving up…” and all that other bullcrap. Stay tuned.

    Ralph Hann

    I wish I could take credit for it but I read it posted some where in here but if the shoe fits….

  • Jim

    The damage from MSNBC’s week of pushing the propaganda meme ‘Evil White Christian American Men caused the Boston Terrorist Bombing’ is still playing out. It’s going to take a while for MSNBC to recover from that propaganda fiasco. What MSNBC’s Leftist reverie’s did was drive viewers from MSNBC to CNN.

    What else should one expect when MSNBC goes full-on Goebbels-MSNBC?

    Can’t wait to see how the Lefty agitators spew their bigoted hate and misinformation on these comment boards.

  • Jeff

    Msnbc must be doing something right. Look at all the right wing kooks trip over each other with stupid one liners.


  • Chriscee

    Chris Matthews has renewed a new long-term deal with MSNBC. But as part of his contract, he’s saying goodbye to The Chris Matthews Show.

    They should have just said GOOD BYE to Chris Matthews….period. NBC Universal will just never learn.

  • Chriscee

    Fox news is doing better than msnBS…just look at the left wing kooks….that says it all….msnBS is run by left wing kooks.

  • Chriscee

    President predicts ‘glitches and bumps’ in ObamaCare rollout

    Glitches and bumps is putting mildly. Even the left wing doesn’t like Obamacare anymore….It won’t be around very long..

    “Bumps” is a word Obama used to describe the 4 deaths in Benghazi. Just mere “BUMPS IN THE ROAD” is all they were to Obama. How sad…What a pathetic president.

  • Chriscee

    Obama is running scared. He knows that the nation does NOT want his left wing agenda to go through. He knows people are tired of his blaming everything on everyone but himself.

    From National Review

    A president is in trouble when he’s forced to defend his relevancy, as Bill Clinton did 18 years ago, or to quote Mark Twain, as Barack Obama did Tuesday. “Rumors of my demise,” he said at a news conference, “may be a little exaggerated at this point.”

    Not wrong–just “exaggerated.” Not forever–just “at this point.”
    Parsing aside, Obama channeled Clinton’s April 18, 1995, news conference by projecting a sense of helplessness–or even haplessness–against forces seemingly out of a president’s control.

    For Clinton, it was ascendant House Speaker Newt Gingrich and the GOP’s takeover of Congress five months prior, a vote of no-confidence for the first-term Democratic president. “The president is relevant here,” Clinton insisted in the East Room.

    For Obama, his nemesis is a far-less charismatic and influential House Speaker John Boehner, as well as the intense weight of structural problems that favor Washington gridlock. These include the Senate filibuster, hyper-partisan House districts, polarized media outlets, and a fast-changing electorate that is sorting itself in political tribes.

    “So my question to you,” ABC reporter Jonathan Karl asked Obama, “is do you still have the juice to get the rest of your agenda through Congress?”

    Obama needs to be impeached….sooner not later.

  • Chriscee

    Obama Calls the 70,000+ Deaths in Syria a ‘Blemish’ on the International Community

    “bumps” or “blemishes” they are all still DEATHS…And to Obama….it’s no big deal!

  • usa8888

    same old, same old–Fox Fake gets the Lawrence Welk audience, fully 2/3 of the audience is over 65…..But the bad news is the pschographics of the right wing: mostly white and skewing toward old age; mostly uneducated; many are racists and/or bigots; most are insensitive to others plights and hence greedy; many are religious fanatics; most hate government even though they like getting their Social Security check each month…they also like taking advantage of Medicare; almost all are backward thinking, owing to their lack of education……

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–if you want to jump into Syria even though we don’t know who used the poison gas (it may have been al qaeda), why don’t you send your kids first and test the waters????

  • Stan T.

    Oops…my post didn’t make it through the filter…lol….here is the editted version…hoping it makes it through this time…lol

    Channel surfed into Sharpie’s “Politics Nation”…they were running a clip of the sick child who got to make a touchdown during a college game…you know, the one everyone else was running WEEKS ago…so it’s either a rerun or he’s just that slow about reporting actual news.

    Then commercial break comes: “Politics Nation, sponsored by Shell Oil.” hello, I thought MSNBC thought the oil companies were scum, slime, and evil…are they hurting that bad for sponsors that they have to sell themselves out to oil? How Al Gore of them….
