    Been watching a bit of MSNBC lately after not watching the network for a while because for the most part, CNN has grown increasingly frenetic. There have been some marked improvements in daytime. Of most interesting note, The Pulse of America was a fascinating idea for a show. Caught a part of it yesterday.

    All admins try to change measurement criteria. Particularly the ginning up of Inflation and employment. But we all know CPI inflation is not related to inflation and all know what the unemployment number omits. We start changing scale for trade deficit numbers how the hell is GDP going to show an increase? it is counter factual that changing trade deficit calculation to be larger can occur and not effect GDP. GDP= C+I+G (ex-im). So keep a look out because sure as shooting someone will be in here using a data point to make one claim or another. i know i will be.

  • If Erik Wemple is going to cite Mother Jones, then Tucker Carlson has an excuse not to read the last sentence of Erik’s column cited in his appearance last week.

      Kevin Drum is worth reading.

      Unless she’s moved on, Mrs. Wemple works for Mother Jones.

        And Mr. Wemple is a mother in his own right.

        Wow! Thanks for that tidbit of information. It helps out so much into perspective when you hear things like that. Imagine what their pillow talk is!

    Anyone see that Brenda Buttner passed away? A few weeks ago I was wondering if they fired her since I kept on seeing Dagen hosting Bulls & Bears
    I checked her Twitter & found out she was battling cancer, her tweets seems to give away that she was doing fine

    R.I.P. Brenda Buttner

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Sometimes things are going well, then something goes very wrong. In my late father’s case ten years ago, they thought he had the cancer beaten. But, the chemo had weakened his immune system and an infection took him in two days. I have seen this happen with a lot of people. I don’t know the case with Brenda. Perhaps she was putting on a brave front for her friends and family.

      This world was a better place for having Brenda Buttner in it.

      • Lurker

        If Brenda was such a valued employee, how come when they were launching a business news channel they never offered Brenda a hosting gig? They had tons of slots open in the beginning, she was never part of the business channel

        Weird

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          From what I understand, this bout was a relapse of an earlier battle.

    • Cecelia

      That is shocking. That’s Brenda Buttner and Terry Keenan in the last few years.

      • And Dierdre Bolton has been out for months on medical leave.

        • Cecelia

          That’s concerning.

        • Lurker

          You found out Dierdre is out due to her health? So why are all the anchors so hush hush about it?

          • Maybe at her request.

          • Lurker

            OIC, Do you know what health problem?

          • Nope. Just two words: medical leave,

          • Lurker

            OIC, Thanks for the info 😜 🤣 😝

      RIP Brenda Buttner. She was very much loved at Fox. Late last year Jamie Colby participated in a cancer walk and dedicated it to Brenda.

    That is sad to hear about Brenda Buttner, she was one of my Fox Favorites.

  • Internet cable news sites uninterested in Brenda Buttner? TV Newser: nothing. FTV Live: nothing. Inside Cable News: nothing.
    Brian Stelter did take a break from the Sweden tweetathon to mention it a tweet.

    Very nice tribute to Brenda Buttner, Saturday morning must watch for years. I was teary eyed befor Neil, well done.

  • homemaker

    I remember watching the Saturday morning business blocks for years. I always took away from Bulls & Bears that her guests always knew Brenda knew as much or more than they did and admired her for that. I realky enjoyed those shoes & they were something I watched with my high school aged son. From his chosen profession he took a bunch of that info in and made it work for him.
    How many times have we heard that Rachel Maddow is soooo smart-she’s a Rhodes scholar?! Have we EVER heard that about Brenda? In all the years of watching Fox I never heard that bit of info before. I guess it’s because you must be an idiot if you work for any of the Fox entities.
    Well screw all of you who pretend to be so freaking superior.

    I could swear up and down that Brenda Buttner was a guest commentator on a few shows in the last few weeks? I thought She was coming back soon. Maybe it was tape?

    John Roberts needs to find a new hair stylist. Looks much better with the silver hair he had, very Johnny Carson/Cary Grant-like.
