Far-Left Nation Magazine Editor Gets MSNBC Show (Christopher Hayes of The Nation)

If you thought Comcast buying into NBC was going to change the overtly liberal bias at the network's news divisions, think again.

On Monday, MSNBC announced that Christopher Hayes, the Washington editor of the far-left magazine The Nation, will be getting his own show in September:

MSNBC contributor Chris Hayes has been added to the network’s weekend lineup as the host of a new weekend morning show. The program, with a focus on politics, will be live on Saturdays from 7:00 – 9:00 a.m. ET and Sundays from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. ET starting September 17.

The announcement was made today by MSNBC President Phil Griffin. Hayes, a frequent substitute host for “The Rachel Maddow Show” and “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell,” will continue as an MSNBC contributor and will remain part of The Nation as Editor-at-Large.

“Chris is a thoughtful analyst and one of the smartest journalists out there,” said Griffin. “As we head into election season, there is no better time to amp up our weekend political coverage.”

For those unfamiliar with this disgraceful publication, in its television ad campaign, it proudly admits to possessing "that famous liberal media bias you can't find anywhere else":

*****Update: Hayes's wife works for Obama (h/t NB reader Thomas Charles Stewart III)...

Since the White House made it official today, I wanted to note as a matter of full disclosure that my wife Kate Shaw is now an attorney in the Office of the White House Counsel. Obviously, my views are entirely my own, and throughout a long campaign in which I had very dear family members involved with the Obama organization, I'd like to think I maintained a critical distance. I intend to do so in covering the administration.

Comcast is a monopoly. As long as the government allows this they’ll tow the liberal government line.

Hey, don’t worry. Nobody reads “The Nation” anymore, and nobody watches MSNBC.

I never heard of the chap.

Good luck, Mr. Hayes. You’ll need it.

Wow. What a winning idea. Put some unknown editor of a very low circulation Communist magazine on TV. Infomercials on acne medication will probably beat it in it's time slot.

Chris Hayes is a regular on the Rachel Mad-cow Show.

He's one of those 'clean cut' marxists, who should proudly
wear the Hammer & Sickle on his lapel pin. A modern 'Trotskyite'

Would've fit nicely in this portrait...

Just talked to a White House official who says the actual details of the deal are “significantly better” than what’s being reported #fwiw

@ @mattyglesias @jbarro Exactly. Only way to hold the line is to be comfortable w total expiration, which they will take off the table.

Deal on the table is all cuts, no revenue. This is a rout. (Only silver living:they didn’t permanently lock in any of the Bush tax cuts)

Imagine if our political establishment showed this level of zealousness in dealing with climate change.

@ @jamespoulos I don’t think of myself as having a team in that sense, but yes, it will be politically beneficial for the Pres and bad for R’s

At this point, you absolutely have to conclude that the house Republican caucus wants default.

A ratings agency downgrade will likely push up interest rates and thus strengthen the hand of the maniacs bringing this about.

Wait for it. Once he begins his show on MSNBC, Christopher Hayes, he of the 'thoughtful analysis' and 'one of the smartest journalists out there" ( all liberals are automatically termed 'brilliant' by other liberals - it's a law) will be calling Fox News 'biased'. As if anyone will be watching him on the Communist network. However, as a editor of The Nation, a leftist magazine that has lost money for well over 100 years and is sustained by donors, Hayes is used to communicating with a miniscule audience made up of like-minded leftists, so he'll be right at home on MSNBC.

Lawrence O’Donnell, Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz, Al Sharpton and now Hayes. At least we can see that MSNBC makes no bones about their viewpoint. The only positive thing is that other than Freepers and Newsbusters, I don’t believe anyone is watching.

Katrina vanden Heuvel is the editor and publisher of the Nation as of 2010.

If you’ve never heard her interviewed, you’ve missed something. Maureen Dowd and Eleanor Clift are conservatives compared to her. Total Kook.

She is a rather brilliant polemicist. But then, so was Lenin.
