2. does that mean his contract dispute is settled?

7. Lawrence


Lawrence tweeted: "I've been @ Harvard graduation this week covering the Zuckerberg presidential campaign. Return to @TheLastWord tonight live from Boston 10 pm". No statement about contract.

9. Very Pessimistic About the Prospects

Maybe I'm reading the Tea Leaves the wrong way, but I think the deafening silence is a very bad sign. If MSNBC wanted Lawrence to stay on, I think it wouldn't take more than 15 minutes for a deal to be struck -- and we would have heard about it . But it's obvious that's not happening.

I will not watch Brian Williams, or anyone else for that matter, in the 10pm slot. I am also tending toward a decision to simply not watch MSNBC at all if Lawrence is not renewed.

14. It's anyone's guess, but I'm leaning another way...

...I think there is a good chance that they will announce a deal at the very last minute. MSNBC may well want to make a deal but not at the price Lawrence would command if they showed their hand. I think he does have other options (because he said he would tell us where we could watch him if his contract was not renewed--I believe him, though this may be a negotiation tactic). So both sides may be pushing hard for a favorable bargain.

I hope he has an agent like Bebe Glazer:

10. We may not find out until June 2 or even June 5.

Lawrence had tweeted that he would be somewhere on June 5 even if it was not on MSNBC. June 5 is a Monday, so if he is dumped by MSNBC he might announce his leaving on the previous Friday, June 2. Or if the negotiations are bitter, he may just not be on their programming on June 5 and all us fans will have to hunt for where he will be posting his commentary.

6. Hey, how cool is it that I saw "Lawrence" and knew exactly who you were talking about?!

- not that outrageous an event on DU, I guess, but I'm glad he's an only-one-name-needed icon, even if it's "just" on DU!

12. Same Here

In my house, we only have to say "Rachel" or "Lawrence" and we both know who we're talking about.

Everybody else needs a last name.

Huge breaking story from the WP just broke!

Russian ambassador told Moscow that Kushner wanted secret communications channel with Kremlin
By Ellen Nakashima, Adam Entous and Greg Miller May 26 at 7:01 PM

Jared Kushner and Russiaís ambassador to Washington discussed the possibility of setting up a secret and secure communications channel between Trumpís transition team and the Kremlin, using Russian diplomatic facilities in an apparent move to shield their pre-inauguration discussions from monitoring, according to U.S. officials briefed on intelligence reports.
