I see her as the breakout star for this election season.
Kornacki is okay, but clearly he doesn't have a life as he would be on every single moment if they would let him. I'll take her over Tweety and Toad who let them spin and pivot unchallenged. But she does sometimes take 20 minutes to tell a 2 minute story. I mostly like Hayes, but he's reminds me of an eager puppy. If Soboroff identifies as straight, I'll take him at his word ... There's another reporter for NBC (not MSNBC) who was on during the convention who makes Rascon seem fugly. Now he's just a news reader, and I find I like him okay especially if he's after that bimbo jerk Stephanie Ruhl . She dumped him as soon as she was on sure footing with NBC. Stephanie Ruhl grates on the nerves, the fugliest of the fraus by far. Hallie Jackson is the best of the female road warriors. Casie Hunt is great, she's attractive but there is just a touch of a PE teacher there. She's been filling in for MTP Daily lately and she's getting better but nothing to write home about. She totally went in on Boris, the Trump surrogate, who even called her a "Hillary surrogate." That Boris guy is the biggest D-bag supporting Trump.
Mika has been "speaking up" more and more on Morning Joe, probably to "prove her worth," (name of her book). Katy Tur in front of Trump Tower is something I don't need to see any longer. I like Katy Tur too but something weird is going on with her. She's randomly absent during some of his most important speeches (i.e. Right behind the poor South Carolina congressman surrogate as well.
My favorites remain Lawrence O'Donnell, Rachel Maddow and Chris Matthews, in that order. The NBC/MSNBC "Road Warriors" are all good in their own right, but don't deserve a show. Rachel Maddow, Joy Reid, and Chris Hayes are the hosts that keep me tuned into msnbc. I do love the "road warriors" though, especially Katy Tur, Hallie Jackson and Kristen Welker.
The most crush worthy is Ari Melber.[quote]Only complaint, he can really interrupt people at times without letting them finish the answer to the very question he just asked.
They HATED each other, and probably would have gotten into a physical fight, had they been on the same set.
As it turned out, they put Joe in a separate studio to comment on the 2008 election, in a somewhat "reporting" capacity, while Olbermann, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, and Eugene Robinson anchored the broadcast.
Mentioned in this article is Katy's reaction to her dad.
I feel for her, dealing with the Trump campaign and her recent escort to her car for her own protection by *his assigned Secret Service agents* because of rally anger. He annoyed the snot out of me with how he would continually talk over people. I can't believe that, eons ago when I first saw him when he was a reporter/political commentator at ABC (during the Peter Jennings era IIRC), I actually thought Mark Halperin was kinda cute. Pretty sure he will be salivating all over himself come Monday over Hillary's "basket of deplorables" speech. He always gives Trump the benefit of the doubt during his MSNBC show and on Morning Joe, though I rarely ever watch them anymore. I want to know the backstory to Maddow and Scarborough's alleged feud too. Her show has been on fire during this election season, scoring nearly 2 million viewers per night.
I try to like Rachel Maddow since I agree with her politics but I agree with the poster that says she takes 20 minutes to make a 1 minute point. Habit of beating a dead horse on a particular point, as if she thinks the viewer didn't get what she was saying the first or second time.
