    NBC once had a chimp as a ‘full time’ Today family member. The lore is they had to shoot it.

  • Larry Kelly

    If I ever find the guy who blows the Soledad O’Brien ballasts…

    • Grandpa D

      …takes a licking but keeps on ticking.

    Juan: “Why is broadcast news coverage of Trump 91% negative?”
    Jesse: “91% of today’s press are liberal activists.”
    Kimberly: “Thanks for watching. Tomorrow: who’s buried in Grant’s Tomb. Bye.”

      Cary Grant ?

      • Larry Kelly

        Archibald Leach

        • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

          Jimmy Hoffa?

    • Tom_Ohio

      But did they include ESPN in the numbers, it would go up a bit if you added in the ESPN, TMZ, Entertainment News ( sic ) blurbs

      • Minnesota Nice

        It says just broadcast networks –
        An WP article says “…study from the Media Research Center finds that 91 percent of the recent coverage which aired on ABC, CBS and NBC has been negative.”

        MRC Study – https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/rich-noyes/2017/09/12/liberal-medias-summer-pummeling-trump#more-share

        Agree if you include those you mentioned and late night talk shows, awards shows, hurricane telethons, etc. it likely would go up. The only place that may help Trump is talk radio.

        • Larry Kelly

          Which is why the FCC needs to crack down on talk radio.

    • gcblues

      Jesse is a the missing fool of the village. of the 91% negativity, the best and strongest criticisms are from conservatives. the left wing portion of the media just repeat rinse repeat rinse everlasting stupidity. the criticisms on the right are acknowledging he is an FDR type manipulator prone to crazy taxation, entitlements, foreign policy and more. his utterances of “insurance for all”, tariffs, “bring me tariffs”, saying one thing then another like “fire and fury” then “negotiation” are fair game. once the hurricane bump wears away and we get back to continuing obama care, no tax reform, and higher deficits the numbers will drop back and he will pull another stunt. the question is will he blow up the world or the economy first. either one first makes the other 2nd.

      • GATXER

        of the 3 broadcast networks they were talking about….ABC….NBC….AND CBS……which has the conservatives you speak of?

        • gcblues

          “why is broadcast news coverage….”
          u r correct i elided over larry’s/jesse’s specified qualifier. my bad. i guess i am so closed minded in my conservative investor world i can only see what is obvious, not a political fantasy. ty for correcting my error. stupid me, there are no cons on the nets, just like most cons are nevertrumpers …just for different reasons than the libs.

  • gcblues

    Report: NBC suits eying Maddow as ‘full time’ Today family member:
    give MK/RM the 9AM slot for the new net crossfire. 1st show, a cage MMA fight for top billing. no way it does not make the hour the most watched 9am programming ever. problem solved.

    • Grandpa D

      I’d put my money on Megan.

      • gcblues

        i’d say it would likely result in more bettors than non-bettors.

  • gcblues
    • gcblues

      i say pay, because cable and sat are combined, but streaming left out? kinda weird because all the largest telecoms are doing all 3 in hopes that when it sorts out and there will be one horse to ride. they can then enfilade customers at that point in hopes of complete competition destruction. ain’t gonna happen.

    Katy Tur = Drama Queen

    Republicans or TRUMP Supporters aren’t violent thugs like the Left

    You were in no danger 🤣😄😁

    A Chappaquiddick Reckoning At Last?

    http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2017/09/a-chappaquiddick-reckoning-at-last.php

    Article quote “Ted Kennedy was a coward and fool” – so true. Looking forward to movie.

    • Larry Kelly

      The liberal press saved his butt. Now, all the Kennedys that mean anything are long gone, and they don’t care.

      • Minnesota Nice

        Agree, but also believe local, state and federal authorities had some role. Thank goodness the only Kennedy now is on FNC & FBN.

        • Larry Kelly

          Authorities can only get away with a coverup if aided by a compliant media.

          • Lurker

            That’s how Obama got away with IRS targeting Conservatives, a compliant media

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      The Troll of Chappaquiddick knowingly left her to die. He later went on to try to undermine this country by providing classified information to the USSR. A murderer and a traitor.

    Normally Nielsen has had some lame excuses for ratings delays, however I guess since they are located near Tampa, it’s acceptable this time.

  • Today’s most popular links:
    5 Bill O’Reilly
    4 vertical slide
    3 suits eyeing Maddow
    2 endangered my life
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Pushback on TMZ Bolling report.

    Listening to Greg Gutfeld on the Rubin Report — says no one at Fox has told them they are moving back to 5pm; said he learned of the move from CNN and Mediate blog posts

    He did not seem upset, just laughed that this is how he found out. Says they will probably fire him in the same fashion…….haha.
