    Could former President Barack Obama eventually return to the White House for a third term? Washington Post national political reporter and MSNBC analyst Robert Costa floated the unlikely idea late Wednesday night following the former president’s anti-Trump speech at the Democratic National Convention. Following Obama’s speech, MSNBC host Brian Williams asked Costa if Republican lawmakers secretly agree with Obama’s claim that “democracy is being threatened” by President Trump.

    VIDEO The notoriously fact-challenged Brian Williams is back to his old antics and is now hyping the fiction that the Post Office is being intentionally slowed down by Trump. This latest from Williams is as much a fairy tale as his fantasy about his helicopter being hit by an RPG in Iraq which is the reason why he is now an MSNBC hellhole outcast rather than in his old comfy evening anchor gig at NBC News.

    VIDEO Face it, Steve. Donald Trump completely dominates your mind 24/7. Every hour, every minute, every second your thoughts are on one thing and one thing only...the Big Bad Orange Man. He defines your entire being to the extent that you are perpetually consumed by the RAGE you exhibited with Brian Williams during the Democrat convention. A RAGE that Steve Schmidt shares with his fellow Never Trumper grifter Rick Wilson with whom he hatched the Lincoln Project scam designed to fleece gullible MSNBC liberals and notable for its questionable finances. Oh, and notice how Brian Williams dropped all pretense...

    If only Dr. Seuss were still with us, he could write a sequel to "Horton Hears a Who," entitled "Brian Hears a Whiff." On MSNBC this afternoon, Brian Williams, after claiming that the government always mentions co-morbidities when discussing COVID-19 deaths among black Americans, wondered: "Am I alone in hearing at least a whiff of victim-shaming?"[snip] So just as Horton the elephant could perceive the residents of Whoville on a tiny speck of dusk, so the exquisitely attuned Brian Williams can perceive racist victim-shaming that less sensitive souls might not see. Question: how does Williams manage to "hear" a "whiff?"...

    Longtime Democratic strategist James Carville claimed Wednesday that Republicans were so intent on maintaining power that they would literally “kill people” in order to do so. “My kind of mission in the short-term is to sound the alarm to say [that] Mitch McConnell and the Supreme Court — they’re going to do everything they can to hold onto power,” Carville said duing an appearance on MSNBC. “This thing in Wisconsin was one of the most awful things I’ve ever seen in my life,” Carville added, referring to the controversy over whether to postpone the Badger State’s primary elections due to...

    The first quarter of 2020 was filled to the brim with news, from the impeachment trial of President Trump and the contentious Democratic primary to the growing coronavirus pandemic, but MSNBC failed to add viewers, and experts say that's a serious issue for the far-left network. “This should concern the MSNBC hierarchy,” DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News. Fox News grew 38 percent among total viewers during the first quarter of 2020 compared to the same time period last year, and MSNBC's liberal rival CNN grew 26 percent, while MSNBC finished the quarter with roughly...

    “How would you describe the job President Trump is doing behind the scenes and in front of the cameras during these daily briefings that we’re seeing?” a Christian Broadcasting Network reporter asked. “What’s been your perspective, Dr. Birx?” “He’s been so attentive to the scientific literature and the details and the data,” Birx replied. “And I think his ability to analyze and integrate data that comes out of his long history in business has really been a real benefit during these discussions about medical issues,” she added. “That was translated from the original North Korean,” Williams announced with authority as...

    The MSNBC host and the New York Times’ Mara Gay praised a tweet with a startling — and incorrect — claim. MSNBC’s Brian Williams plus bad math equaled an embarrassing on-air goof Thursday. (See the clip below.) “The 11th Hour” host gushed over a tweet claiming that Michael Bloomberg could have used the $500 million ad budget on his failed presidential bid to give every American $1 million. “It’s an incredible way of putting it,” Williams declared. “It’s true,” guest and New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay chimed in. “It’s disturbing.” It was also wrong.

    If you’ve ever wondered why it is impossible to have a conversation with modern liberals about politics, this video snippet is a case study in the answer. MSNBC host Brian Williams and New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay are having a serious discussion about money, politics and Michael Bloomberg’s spending in the primary election. You have to watch it to believe it. Think about how many people were involved in creating, preparing and producing what you are about to witness. WATCH:

    If someone had simply stopped and double-checked some math, they might have saved MSNBC’s Brian Williams and New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay some embarrassment Thursday night. Instead, both Williams and Gay marveled on air in reaction to a Twitter user’s post about Mike Bloomberg’s campaign spending. Trouble is, the post had gotten the math all wrong – yet neither Williams nor Gay seemed to notice.

    So now we have a whistleblower who isn’t because he cannot be either from his circumstance or from the law. He or she had no firsthand knowledge, weren’t on the call or in the room, and in any case cannot blow the whistle on a unitary executive, namely President Trump. You can only be a whistleblower for an agency you are a member of. We have a quid without a quo and a phone conversation in which President Trump did not pressure a Ukrainian leader into a crime Joe Biden has previously confessed to, namely threatening to withhold a loan...

    Joe Biden claimed twice recently that he met with Parkland, Florida, shooting survivors when he was vice president, despite the fact that he was already out of office when the attack took place. His campaign said Biden misspoke and was referring to a different meeting he had after the Sandy Hook shooting. But the flub was reminiscent of BidenÂ’s past misstatements and his tendency to embellish biographical details. In 1988, Biden was forced to drop out of the presidential race after he was found to have exaggerated his academic record, plagiarized a law school essay, and used quotes from other...

    NBC News contributor Frank Figliuzzi said Tuesday that President Trump’s decision to fly American flags half-staff until Aug. 8-- in response to the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings-- could be seen by white supremacists as a nod to Adolf Hitler. Figliuzzi, a former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence, made the claim during an MSNBC broadcast with Brian Williams. Trump issued the order on Sunday “as a mark of solemn respect” for the victims of the shootings. “The president’s either getting really good advice and rejecting it, or he’s getting really bad advice," he said. "We have to understand the...

    Is Brian Williams on his way back to the big chair he surrendered to Lester Holt on Nightly News? It’s starting to look that way. After his awkward departure from his anchor duties nearly four years ago, it looked as if his career was basically over. He’d been shuffled off to the network’s equivalent of the kiddy table at MSNBC after it was discovered he’d been “embellishing” his own role in news stories over the years. But as the New York Post reports, Williams was recently seen on stage at a high-profile event for advertisers, alongside some of the...

    In covering Attorney General Bill Barr’s press conference Thursday morning ahead of the release of the Mueller report, MSNBC anchor Brian Williams dubbed him “Baghdad Bill Barr,” a reference to Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf, Saddam Hussein’s information minister, whom American media nicknamed “Baghdad Bob.” “It's already been mentioned around here. It would harken back to a conflict decades ago, we would not be surprised if some headline writer somewhere came up somewhere with "Baghdad Bill Barr" for what we saw today. I'll read you four different quotes,” Williams said, giving the following examples: "Put another way, the special counsel found no...

    A report in Huffington Post recently revealed the case of Wikipedia editor Ed Sussman, who was paid by media clients such as NBC and Axios to help diminish critical material. Paid editors operating in a similar manner to Sussman have worked on behalf of CNN contributor Hilary Rosen and the CEOs of Reddit and Intel, among other clients. Other conduct by Sussman not covered by the Huffington Post shows him authoring fluff pieces for NBC executives and getting his proposed changes approved by another paid Wikipedia editor.
