I do not give a damn how she votes or anything else, It is sexist as fuck to call her this. She goes by Andrea Mitchell.

She did not take Al's name when they married.
You may not think it sexist, but it's indisputably wrong.
Her last name, legally, is Mitchell.

5. Instead of complaining about her, why not just stop watching?

If enough people stop watching, maybe she'll be replaced. But watching and complaining is pointless. I don't watch tv programs I don't like.

12. I know. But us political junkies used to have somewhat...

of an option to switch to CNN but now with their rightward shift even that's out, as is FOX of course so I either turn her off or see what's up on DU or TCM.

She'll be gone soon as she's announced her upcoming retirement.

31. My career was in newspapers. Nowadays with the severe...

contraction of print journalism (papers and magazines closing all over the country, sadly and ironically because of what we're doing right now, getting news online), that option is kind of hit and miss. You kind of have to be in a big city that has enough advertisers to support good print journalism.

It's a grave time for print and I see little chance for a rebound. I worked for Newsday in New York and I remember back in the '90s with the advent of the internet when the newspaper industry struggled to try to monetize the content it produces for an online revenue stream.

It failed miserably for the most part, coming up with easily circumvented paywalls and few if any deals made for it's valuable content.

20. Long ago done on that, cut cable TV before the Rotten Orange ran in '16.

Too expensive and internet access is enough.

Saved over 10G and diverted to mental wellness cannabis instead starting in mid '17.

43. Because we need a first-rate group of talent at MSNBC.

Particularly now, when CNN shows intentions of becoming Fox News Lite, and Rachel has cut herself back to one night a week, and election season is upon us, and a criminally insane ex-president is furnishing us with dangerous history every single day. Andrea Mitchell is a liability we cannot afford, anymore. Once she's gone, we can turn our attentions to Chuck Todd.

I never see her on my TV, and the only time I even give her a passing thought is when someone here complains.

Second diner, yes, and the portions are so small.

34. Focus on content

Rather than sexist excuses. Most of the posts about her are sexist, from "Mrs. Greenspan" to her age. They could discuss the content of what she says that bothers them, but many don't.

Criticizing a woman's age is most cases about sexism. Calling a woman "Mrs. Greenspan" is absolutely sexist, and deliberately so.

Let's not pretend you don't want bias in journalism. You want cheerleaders for the Democratic Party. Anything short of that angers people around here.

36. Wait a sec. You cited sexism but now you're on about age. Which is it?

I'm old, too. I see how she is losing her capacity to keep a line of thought at the fore as she goes on about a story. Sorry, that is a mental decline due to age. Many of us geezers suffer the same. Its okay in general, but not okay when her job is to cogently and intelligently tell us news.

To you personally. You seem angry about this. Wanna tell us why?

41. It it sexist because it criticizes a woman's age

who is four years younger than the President they insist isn't too old. Older women are meant to hide from public view because they offend male sensibilities. I haven't once seen a male broadcaster criticized here due to age.

I remember when we were told Hillary Clinton was too old to be president, all while Bernie Sanders wasn't. Clinton is 6 years younger than Bernie.

49. In this case, being past her sell-by date means she longer has the cognitive skills to do her job.

I don't care what caused it, if it is ageing, so be it, but the stance stands as valid for me. She is a rambling, incoherent wreck as well as being RW in her bias.

so against my better judgement I turned on her time slot. And there she was arguing with her guests about Biden making a big mistake granting loans to students, and even when they disagreed, she had to play a fox clip to back her up.

She never disappoints.
