RIP MTP - It's over folks: NBC is bringing in Luke Russert, son of the late beloved


by digby

It's over folks:

NBC is bringing in Luke Russert, son of the late beloved “Meet the Press” host Tim Russert, as a regular panelist on the Sunday morning show in a bid to turn around its catastrophic ratings slide, Page Six has exclusively learned.

Also joining new moderator Chuck Todd’s team will be former Republican congressman and “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough, who sources say “is taking on a larger role within NBC News as a senior political analyst and would be one of the regular Sunday panelists.”

We’re told the move is part of a plan to bring a right-leaning voice to the program to appeal to viewers turned off by the show’s famously left-leaning former hosts including the ousted David Gregory.


Yes, the problem with David Gregory was that he was so left-leaning.

It's ok. Who watches that crap anyway besides junkies like me who have to?

Justice Department to Investigate Ferguson, Missouri, Police

Source: NBC

The Justice Department intends to launch a civil rights investigation of the entire Ferguson, Missouri, Police Department, according to administration officials. An announcement of the investigation is planned for Thursday.

With the help of the FBI, the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division has been investigating last month's fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager, Michael Brown, who was wounded several times by a Ferguson police officer. The shooting touched off several days of sometimes violent protest.

But this new investigation would be much broader, looking at the conduct of the entire Ferguson Police Department over the past several years.

The Justice Department will also look at the practices of the county police department, but that will be a more cooperative investigation, an administration official said.

Holder’s decision will represent the Obama administration’s most aggressive step to address the Ferguson shooting, which set off days of often-violent clashes between police and demonstrators in the streets of the St. Louis suburb.

The federal officials said the probe will look not only at Ferguson but also at other police departments in St. Louis County. Some, like Ferguson, are predominantly white departments serving majority-African-American communities, and at least one department invited the Justice Department to look at its practices. The officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the pending inquiry.

“Post-racial” America?- Navy Seal lies about being shot by 3 black males shouting profanities.

BATH TWP., Ohio - Bath Township detectives believe they have “overwhelming evidence” to prove a former Navy SEAL lied when he claimed he was shot during an altercation with three men outside of a popular shopping center.


He's expected to show up at the Bath Police Department on Thursday to be served with a summons to appear for his arraignment in Akron Municipal Court. A court date has not been set at this time.

"We have overwhelming evidence based upon video, cell phone records and interviews that the shooting did not occur in the West Market Plaza and that Mr. Heben made false allegations to us," said Bath Township Police Chief Mike McNeely.

Heben told police he was nearly hit by a low-profile sports car backing up in the parking lot on March 28 and that occupants, three black males, started shouting profanities at him.



Scott Brown: "I am not going to create one job, it is not my job to create jobs."

Former Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA), now a U.S. Senate candidate in New Hampshire, said that his job isn't to create jobs. That's for other Americans.

Instead, he said, his job is to get the government out of the way.

Brown made the comments at a town hall in Hudson, New Hampshire on Wednesday. The comments were flagged by the opposition research shop American Bridge 21st Century. His comments were in response to a question about what he would to do bring jobs to New Hampshire.

"Here's the thing, people say, what are you going to do to create jobs? I am not going to create one job, it is not my job to create jobs. It's yours," Brown said. "My job is to make sure that government stays out of your way so that you can actually grow and expand. Obamacare's a great example. The number one job inhibitor is Obamacare.

CVS Stops Tobacco Sales Today

CVS, the giant drugstore chain that shocked the U.S. public health community and Wall Street with its decision earlier this year to remove tobacco products from its shelves by October, said cigarettes are officially no longer on store shelves a month ahead of schedule.

The move to remove tobacco products effective this morning coincides with a company decision to also change its corporate name to CVS Health (CVS), from CVS/Caremark Corp. to reflect “its broader health care commitment” and desire to change the future health of Americans.
