Why in the name of God does Lawrence O'Donnell

insist on having the RW asshole Hugh Hewitt on as 'expert' on the reasons Hillary won't be able to beat Trump. Was Limpbaugh unavailable? I don't get MSNBC.

His face is really, really strange.

2. don't watch msnbc or other biggies except I do recommend PBS

What have you heard in the last few days on msnbc that you can believe? I am not accusing them of lying, but I do accuse them of exaggeration, deflection, deliberately leaving out information, narrowness of focus, and lack of journalism ethics.

6. PBS used to be trustworthy. I have found them more and more

to be following the same script as the cable news channels now.

8. MSNBC used to be must-see-TV for me in the evenings

No more. The lengths of the segments tend to be way out of proportion to their depth (i.e., it takes them five times too long to communicate whatever it is they're talking about). Of course there are exceptions, but usually after an hour I haven't learned more than five or ten minutes' worth of information.

Which makes it all the sadder to lose Al Jazeera. Oh, I am so upset about that.

9. It's a crying shame that Al Jazeera is going off.

I also agree that watching 10 minutes of any of the MSNBC political commentators is about all a sane person can stand. Rachel in particular drives me batty with her explaining and repeating whatever point she is trying to make five or six times to drag the segment out.

10. I hear ya. It was an evening staple (via DVR) at our house too. But ...

... there are so many other news sources that we're able to stream on our Roku device. PBS NewsHour is our new go-to source. Also BBC World News (streaming and live) and SkyNews (streaming only) are fantastic ways to get more details, more facts, and less hype.
