1. Well, they are surely AWKWARD with each other, so....



That said, she is a newlywed, but....

2. And pregnant, too

Not saying there is anything "going on," just that there is some heavy flirtation.

4. Why "eeew?"

Attractive man. Attractive woman. What's with the "eeew?"

5. attractive woman married to somebody else AND pregnant? eew.

also too, and even more important, on the AIR? no thanks. Is it too much to ask for professionalism?

if their personal situations are otherwise, fine--but not on air.

8. People can have flirtations

and attractions on a surface level. It doesn't mean it has to turn into anything else. I'm going to guess you're fairly young. I, on the other hand, am 71 and have lived through all kinds of life experiences. I just sensed some attraction there. I think it's probably unlikely that if there is, it will ever be acted upon.

10. In fact I'm 67

and I have an issue with flirtation in any professional setting (I don't watch so I can't speak to the accuracy of your/anybody's read). Actually, I have an issue with most "news" coverage these days. I guess the real problem is none of them are Walter Cronkite.

7. Why do you say that?

He was married for 3 years to Drew Grant. I realize that doesn't mean he isn't gay, but why would you say that?

9. Relax

I have many gay friends and was maid of honor in a lesbian weddings before it was fashionable. Just not too many gay men have affairs with women. And not too many pregnant women have affairs. I am sorry if what I said was worse than speculating them having an affair. I just thought it was funny.

11. I'm plenty relaxed

your "gay friend bonafides" are very impressive but other than that, your response makes no sense at all. If you are going to say something like that, you should have a reason for doing so.

12. Again

Gay men normally do not have affairs with women. Most men do not have affairs with pregnant women. Maybe I should have just said no I do not think they are having an affair.

Why were you wondering about them? Accusations about affairs can ruin people professionally as well as personally. The day msnbc staff seems to have been told that presenting the news while being coy is attractive. I find it disturbing.

No matter, I have cut the cord. Sorry to have brought out the snark in you, not my intention. I think we both have more to worry about than the sex lives of on air personalities, or even questioning each other's motivations.

Now I am going back to listening to trump play his fiddle as the country burns down around him.

13. I've always thought that, too !

I've always found their handoffs awkward and wondered if they'd ever hooked up in the past. I think they have, imo.

16. Kati is awkward. She consistently stumbles over her words.

I liked her as a correspondent, but think she’s ill suited as an anchor.
She tries too hard to be glib and that may come across as flirting.
She’s recently married and just saw today she’s pregnant.

15. I am sick of these "hand offs" to the next show

pleeeze. a lot of them are awkward. They are so fake and forced now, maybe they weren't at first but they are now. Stop It. Just stop it.

It's a cable news channel. just stick with the news.

17. Gotta agree.

There seems to be no love lost between Anderson Cooper and Chris Cuomo. That is a very awkward handoff.
