    Tuesday’s election in Georgia was 💥so important💥 that NBC NIGHTLY NEWS didn’t even mention it until 12 minutes into the broadcast.

      “The mood turns with “Let’s Fall in Love,” a ballad ….”
      “But Brzezinski had almost never heard the song, a waltz ….”
      ok, which?
      No expert on Joe’s 400 songs, but after seeing a few vids it would be nice if he got a better sound tech and i wonder if he has every played anything not in a duple beat in his life. Guess we wait to see like i am waiting him to play higher than 3rd fret or take a solo, ella, billie, cole and Joe. ouch.

          A lot of good tunes out there to play. I would say this guy and gal are a lot more musically and artfully inclined than Joe, yet they both play OPM, other people’s music, and it is hard to argue that their writing is better than the R&B stuff of others. their remake of an old Al Kooper song off of BS&Ts first unknown album before they got managers id musically far better than anything either have written. Joe should have fun. do jams. learn more than folk chords. Being an amateur is a lot of fun. his vids on youtube are really not very good, nor well produced which you think would not be that hard for them. everything i have heard is over processed and mushy.

            they did a blues cruise, her version of i would rather be blind is better than anything she can write. flat rips it

            I’m not sure that’s fair.

            competition. cut heads or sit down.

  • Saintsfan720

    Awful lot of articles about Megyn Kelly’s early struggles at NBC. Some of this is to be expected given her huge contract. But, is some of this rooted in anti-FNC bias? That thought crossing my mind as I notice the nasty tone of these write-ups.

    • Mitch Alan

      Megyn is neither fish nor fowl. I am afraid no one likes this “new” Megyn Kelly who appeared during the Republican debates.

    • Cecelia

      I’d say there’s a fair amount of good ole jealousy too.

    • Grandpa D

      And a little pro-Ailes bias.

    For liberal-progressive-dingleberries, the CNN logo needs to be wrapped in one of the old “Sanitized for Your Protection” toilet seat covers.

      Dingleberries. LOL.

    When Fox News didn’t cover an Obama speech or cut away early, the haters were all complaining whining. However not this time, Hypocrisy at it finest.

    • Larry Kelly

      Well, that was racist. This isn’t.

    I would storm the death star with my potato peeler, by i’m being blocked by some kind of force field.

      And before the J$ brigade storms this blog in protest, ….

      I see another Spud meltdown coming to J$P.

      • Minnesota Nice

        I rarely read ICN and didn’t realize it’s MSNBC and CNN promotional outlet.

        • Larry Kelly

          it’s not really, but he has his inclinations.

          • Minnesota Nice

            I based my opinion on that he always posts MSNBC and CNN monthly ratings, but never FNC (recently anyway as I didn’t review too far back). Also many negative or “bad news” posts about FNC and very few about MSNBC and CNN.

          • Larry Kelly

            He would tell you, and has repeatedly told me, CNN and MSNBC sends him their ratings directly and FOX does not. Yeah, I know. He also harbors a grudge from years ago where a rough and tumble FOX PR group did him dirt. I used to know what that was, but I also used to know the doog’s name.

          • Cecelia

            The Fox PR folks were body-slammers from way back, but could a modicum of their dealings with Spud have been inspired by his sour puss temperament?

          • Cecelia

            I agree. Spud is more fair than that, and also has the ability to knock it out of the park on occasion.

    • Cecelia

      Let him die on that puny hill.

    Hugh gets 30 minutes on a Saturday Morning at like 8AM, guess they didn’t want too much Hugh..

  • Grandpa D

    “magnificent dumbest” – “Pithy” is not one of Somerby’s virtues.

    • Minnesota Nice

      Not being pithy is a big downfall, as Somberby rambles on and on and it’s just as bad as Maddow. Many times I lose interest and quit reading.

      • Larry Kelly

        Sadly, it’s made me inclined to not start reading.

      • Cecelia

        I wish he’d write books.

        I’d read and reread them.

    Notes:

    Not showing Trump speech wasn’t smart.

    CNN highest rated show had less viewers than Fox News lowest rated.

  • J.J.

    Trump in Iowa delivers for Fox last night. Too bad they can’t get him to book a rally every night. MSNBC will be back on top w/the senate health care bill tonight.

  • Re: “Somerby: ‘Cable gong show culture at its magnificent dumbest'”: Coincidentally, a Gong Show revival premieres tonight on ABC. It’s hosted by Mike Myers Tommy Maitland.

  • puck30

    8a.m. on a Saturday Morning and MSNBC will probably cancel Hugh and say it’s low ratings but they were trying to be fair and give conservative talk a chance, but who’s up at 8 AM on a Saturday Morning?
