She's an idiot. I don't watch MSNBC too often but whenever I see her, it reminds me of the coverage they did re: the capture of Saddam in his hidey-hole; they had her play Saddam in their re-creation and climb out of this box they constructed - it was hilarious!!!

That was great. Spider Hole Gold! I hadn't seen that before, thanks for the laugh. I too think she is an idiot based on the few observations that I have had of her. Maybe I should give her another chance????? I rarely if ever watch MSNBC, and those 2 videos are shining examples of why I don't, at least the one that you posted is.

Yeah, that was pretty funny; gosh, Stewart hasn't aged in 8 years!!!

Of course, I'm a conservative so I avoid MSNBC. Like you probably avoid Fox. But she does seem like an idiot (FNC has its share, Shep Smith, Hannity, O'Reilly...).

Mo Brooks was district attorney when I first started at the sheriff's dept. That man was notorious for not cutting anyone any slack. And he worked very hard ensuring he had a good case and presented it well. No one wanted to go up against him. When he dug his heels in on a case, it was all over but the crying.

That is so cool, Neez!

I just loathe this type of "gotcha" tactic in journalism; sadly, it seems to be more and more commonplace. Since when is a degree in economics a requirement to having a valid (or valued) opinion on our economic crisis? It's sweet karma that it backfired on her.

Journalists of all stripes would better serve their public if they themselves became more familiar with the subject on which they are reporting, IMO.

There doesn't seem to be much in the way of unbiased reporting. I have some conservative as well as liberal views on things, it just depends on what the issues are.

I've pretty much given up on watching the news on TV, as it is a lot of fluff with no substance. When I do watch, I look for the topic and try to gather information from additional sources so I can process it better. I definitely don't like Hannity or O'Reilly though. I used to like O'Reilly a bit many years ago, but that faded.

I do like watching Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert. Sometimes they seem more "newsy" than the news, with some great humor thrown in there. Jon's interview with the Medal of Honor recipient Leroy Petry was great. Much respect for that man.
