Martin Bashir. Media gold.

MSNBC has been hitting the right note on the Republican sourgrape inability to lock in on reality that they lost the election on their own merits.

2. He's great ... today, he shoudl have started with the PDB of 8/6/2001.

That PDB is ignored.

An month later ~3000 Americans die on American soil.

THAT should be the low bar for impeachment talk.

I want some one in the media to say that out loud.

5. His show is my favorite on the MSNBC lineup...

He brilliantly cuts through the crap and does it with great wit and humor.

6. Love his wit and humor!

But he can also have a sharp tongue and biting commentary. He has quite deftly taken repukes down so smoothly they didn't know what hit them! He has also rebuked SE Cupp (sp?) but in a teasing manner that I don't think was so teasing after all. But it didn't matter because she didn't get it anyway.

7. He used to do the same to Dylan Rattigan when it was deserved...

I detested Rattigan but he, unlike Cupp, knew it was a rebuke and was suitably unhappy, lol.

I didn't realize he worked with DR-- I am so glad he has his own program. I never miss it.

10. No, Rattigan was on at 4:00 pm, eastern and Bashir came on at 5:00 pm...

Rattigan was replaced by the simpering show, The Cycle. Many here wanted MSNBC to extend Bashir's show to two hours to include the hour before his 5:00 pm show.

Edited to change the times as it was 4:00 and 5:00 eastern not 3:00 and 4:00 as I first stated.

Beginning June 25, Martin Bashir slides an hour forward as he replaces Ratigan at 4pmET. MNSBC is developing a new show for the 3pmET timeslot.

13. I was really hoping MSNBC would extend his show to two hours...

and am still hoping for it as I don't think The Cycle is a ratings-getter, quite the opposite I bet.

Barring that, it would be great if they did repeat his show during the schedule, it is well worth seeing twice for sure.

What a waste!

15. It could be contractual....

He's been on MSNBC since 2003, during the bush regime's reign so the political climate was very different and maybe the three hour show was part of the deal with him.

16. Thanks, Spazito--that's probably why

I have watched MSNBC off and on since 2006 and am not familiar with the network's history. I used to listen to Air America and 'ran into' Randi Rhoades on the radio a few days ago. Glad she's still around.

17. The 3rd hour of Scumborough has often been a repeat of the 1st hour

which starts at 6:00 am ET. I never really watched that show as I'm usually on my way to work at that time of the morning but when I've been home during this election season, I checked it out and also listened on SiriusXM which will run the audio of MSNBC. I found that they were mostly re-airing the 1st hour's segment, with some live bits here and there including at the end as they segued into Schmuck Toad.

18. Martin needs to be on @ 5 or @ 7 and they need to ditch Tweety

for good. Once and for all. Give a slot to Joy-Ann Reid.

19. Tweety is not consistent, but he had a very good show today.

He does remember what Democrats are all about.

21. He was yelling at a Democratic Senator

about that Petraeus hearing just like a rethug would. He acted like a lunatic who thinks he is some hard-hitting gumshoe "journalist" but he isn't. Al he did was spit out rethug talking points. In fact he spent a portion of one segment continuing to praise Rmoney above and beyond what anyone else was willing to do and acted shocked that the pathological liar reverted back to his used-car salesman schtick with his donors.

Tweety's ass needs to go. He is well past expiration date. It's ironic his man-crush on JFK misses the fact that Johnson was the one who actually SIGNED all the Civil Rights & Voting Rights legislation.
