I know many here don't like Andrea Mitchell

and that's fine. I believe you that her political coverage is biased, and not very good in general. But you've got to give her props for foreign policy. At least I do. I watch only the foreign policy section of her show, after recording it, and it is usually head and shoulders above CNN.

Today she interviewed guests about the Nevalny death and the Rs withholding Ukranian funding. She was well informed, made no apologies for Rs, and let her guests talk. Michael McCall, the former ambassador, said that Biden should release frozen Russian funds and give them to Ukraine. He said that many Rs are in favor of this and it would be a good solution. He's in communication with Biden about it. I found this very interesting and informative, as well as positive. There was no stuttering or interrupting from Andrea, and she asked relevant follow ups.

Some here have compared Tur to Mitchell, but Tur doesn't have Mitchell's foreign policy expertise, and has a horrible, bored attitude, so I think that's unfair to Andrea. Just my two cents, of course.

Gee, I wonder why Jake Tapper and CNN are

presenting a series on "scandals" which seems to treat the whole topic as a light-hearted, not too serious, but "interesting" phenomenon with lots of mugging by Tapper.

It's curious that the first two episodes go way back in time to feature Democrats. One is about John Edwards and the other about that Governor from Illinois who took bribes. I've also seen promos for Elliott Spitzer (also a Dem). Nothing about R's.

I guess Hastert (and of course) cheato, are not interesting enough for Tapper or CNN.

If you like the invasion of Ukraine and the "Sudden Deatth Syndrome" of Navalny

you'll love a Presidency with full immunity here in the U.S.

I hope the Dems are able to make this point clearly in the next few months.

Biden should do more press conferences; he was GREAT today!

Ripped the Rs for taking an unearned 2 week vacation when the world is, basically, falling apart. Showed real leadership in his comments about Navalny, Putin, and the ongoing talks with Israel.

I almost think he should face the press daily. He has a lot of material to work with. What a contrast between him and cheato. One has the weight of the world on his shoulders with no help from the R's at all, and one is being tried on 91 felony counts and spends his days whining.

How many lawyers does it take to question a black female

DA? We'll probably be up to 10 by the end of these "proceedings".

Nevertheless, she can handle them all with one hand tied behind her back.

Let's hope Brianna is right about the headline of Fani's testimony

She said on CNN the headline would be the section where Fani said I am not on trial, these people are on trial for trying to steal an election. That would be great, because according to the standards of journalism, that is the headline.

However, I'm not holding my breath. Doesn't fit the "narrative."

OMG! Marge Green and Clay Higgins named as Impeachment managers!

Can you imagine the @##%# show we're in for? According to Ron Filipkowski on twitter. Our best response: ridicule!

What these beautiful results in NY show me

Is that we can not listen to the corporate news media pushing doom and gloom for Dems before every election.

WHEN WE VOTE, WE WIN and they are trying to suppress that with a "narrative" that they should at least know by now is FALSE.

Laurence O'Donnell's show on MSNBC tonight is wonderful

Really must see television. He doesn't follow the BS narrative of the corporate media, but tonight he and his writers are outdoing themselves.

My favorite part: he's calling out the WH press corps!
