“Jonathan Martin is not "biracial." Both of his parents are African Americans. Why do reporters keep repeating this misstatement about his ethnicity?

On the larger issue, Mr. Ross is taking the proper steps.”

“Please don't do it. Just leave it as the TV series it was, and make new films about life today that reflect the rich diversity of this country and things occurring right now. No more *Entourage*--and Adrian Grenier, if you and Jerry Ferrara are holding it up, thank you.”

“We in California are watching, I think the whole country is watching this one. I am all for two term service like the Presidency. This would force them to work for us to try and get as much done as possible in 8 years. With two term service they would have to work feverously for recognition/legacy. It is a no brainer but the unfortunate part of all this, is that congress would have to pass a law for it, and as we can see, that would not happen.”

Please, Americans, stop voting the GOP back into power. They are not helping anyone but themselves and the 1%. Haven't they destroyed enough to disqualify anyone but their elite supporters from putting them into office?”

“I also find her unwatchable. She's often wrong on the facts, but rarely if ever corrects herself. It can be unbearable to sit through her nonsense. I don't get it, though, given how smart she is. Could it be the production or that she's just not cut out for TV?”

Goombar Aulik on May 31, 2013 at 10:36:13

“Maddow and I are both left of center so our politics should agree.  So I should have a soft spot for her.  As far as the facts are concerned, I can't even tell you if she was right or wrong.  I just couldn't get over the repetition which she seemed to use to build up to nothing.  Many times I would just be lost trying to figure out where she was going with something.

What makes me think it's a producer was her story on Todashev.  She went down the road of conspiracy, but it wasn't, then attacks the FBI, then backed away and finally she huffes away about wanting answers and an official story though she'd give credence to unofficial accounts without really understanding the difference or what they mean.  Just awful.”

“Chris Hayes is excruciatingly boring. He's smart, and Ed sometimes would just bluster through topics, but he had passion. It's like a geek session in which, especially with the shows other than Hayes's, they don't really get to the core of anything and they are as energize as Quaaludes. It's not a good combination by any means. Maddow is sometimes as exciting to watch as drying paint.”

“Not at all surprising. MSNBC is full of high-paid pseudo-liberals. Not a single one has been capable of reading and discussing the transcript of Susan Rice's original remarks last October. They just twiddle their thumbs and rant about the GOP, but they can't even perform basic journalism, liberal, progerssive or otherwise. They are itching to all be taking off the air.”
