2. He is going to Fox from what I read
And Rita Cosby is an airhead. She belongs on Hardcopy or Celebrity Justice. I never watch fox but I'm subjected to it at my inlaws. I think MSNBC is trying to become fox with the exception of Olberman.

4. Hemmer
is going to Fox. Personally I couldn't be happier since I never liked Hemmer and I don't watch Fox so it's win-win for me.

5. They should have hired Randi Rhodes...
now that would have gotten them ratings. Put her on at the 9pm time slot and let her kick Insanity's ass!!!

13. I like Randi too, but she couldn't be herself on TV.
Randi is quite outspoken and gets pretty crazy on her show sometimes. Even though she's right, I don't think CNN or MSNBC is quite ready for her way of stating things.

Just look at how they've toned Carvelle down recently!!!

6. She was on The Situation tonight
She was on The Situation tonight, in place of Severin. I felt so bad for Rachel having to sit between Tucker and Rita!

8. I actually didn't mind Cosby on that
I thought she was fun and had the right tone, perfect for the show. Much better than that Monica Crowley

12. So who's MSNBC hiring from Fox next - Hannity? Falafel_Boy?
Isn't there someplace, anyplace, that has real newspeople that MSNBC can troll to drum up talent - besides the bathroom stalls at Fox? There are still schools of journalism out there somewhere, instead of this incestuous coupling they are doing w/Fox personnel.

Christ - Crowley, Cosby, even Carlson? Looks like they're going for Fox's demographics, to me!

14. Maybe she's replacing Tucker Carlson!
Wouldn't that be a riot?
