Joe and Mika saying they have always been against Trump....

Mika says she has supported Clinton....just being a journalist and asking the hard questions. Joe saying he said he would not vote for Trump a long time ago. They must be getting savaged online.

23. One of the most frequently recorded and performed composers

Gustav Mahler (German: [ˈmaːlɐ]; 7 July 1860, Kaliště in Bohemia, now Czech Republic – 18 May 1911, Vienna in Austria-Hungary) was an Austrian late-Romantic composer, and one of the leading conductors of his generation. As a composer he acted as a bridge between the 19th century Austro-German tradition and the modernism of the early 20th century. While in his lifetime his status as a conductor was established beyond question, his own music gained wide popularity only after periods of relative neglect which included a ban on its performance in much of Europe during the Nazi era. After 1945 his compositions were rediscovered and championed by a new generation of listeners; Mahler then became one of the most frequently performed and recorded of all composers, a position he has sustained into the 21st century.

when Copland was the guest conductor back in the early sixties. He included some of his compositions that were frankly quite strange and, as the concert master later remarked, difficult to distinguish the melody from the orchestra tuning up.

As resounding as the Fanfare for the Common Man is, I have played it so many times.. ugh.. not again! Being retired I am off the hook. :>) Actually, it is a great balls to the wall little piece when in the right hands...but greatly overplayed. (ike the Barber Adagio For Strings.)

--or, Appaloosa Spring ( as we call it), :>

But, that's from the back of the orchestra.. or brass section.....

But I jest. It is a wonderful ballet. As is Billy the Kid.


Check out the Christopher Rouse FLUTE CONCERTO. I know both he and Carol Wincenc, who has recorded it. Chris' Trombone Concerto won a Pulitzer.

I have been a long standing sufferer of the shitshow who has given up on them during the general in 11 after they did the same kind of jackassery against BHO - see regular standing POS saying he was a "dick" .

I went cold turkey and did not watch them for four years until this year's primary, and I peeked in during a week where they were knocking Trump pretty good, but since then it has been acid reflux nearly every day with their twisted way of propping the dolt up while gleefully trashing Hillary.

Last week I had my fill and tuned into CNN and "discovered" Cuomo, and I have watched them every day, and seen him openly pushing back on the bullshit against Hillary.

I have repeatedly called for folks here to join me in getting off the MJ roller coster - dropping them completely, going to New Day AND e-mailing MSNBC and letting them know you will never against watch MJ, while supporting Cuomo and New Day.

in during the campaigns to see what they're saying--because they are wired in. Not every day, not even every week, and I'll have no problem dumping them entirely, probably next spring when the new government settles in and things calm down.

No cold turkey needed, turning them on is no pleasure to be denied and, no matter how they may redye their feathers, I am terminally disgusted with them. Btw, OD'ed-and-gone this morning on maybe 10 seconds of an angry Joe mirroring Trump's own deluded dishonesty.

http://money.cnn.com/2016/10/20/media/morning-joe-bill-kristol-joe-scarborough-mika-brzezinski/

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski argued Thursday that they had not been accommodating to Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign -- an attempt at revisionist history contradicted by hours of footage from their own show.

25. All they are doing now is trying to save themselves & the MJ show. I would never believe anything

 

they say. If they were very good journalists which they are not, it would not even be a question in people's eyes & ears who they support. They are constantly talking about how well they know Trump like it is some kind of a badge of honor they are so well connected to him.

If Mika supports Clinton so strongly, she would not be basically attacking her every day on the show. She is totally dishonest about that.

Also, if they don't support Trump, then why do they run to his defense every time & their display of yesterday reeked of desperation, flailing about trying to defend his remark about accepting the election.

They are every bit as narcissistic as Trump is, they all belong together in the same basket.

She constantly pats herself on the back for being some great woman's advocate while a minute later chastizing Hillary for being oer confident or some similar kind of bullshit.

She will meekly and quietly say she voting for her, then launch into deeply emotional distriabes over every single fake "scandal" the right wing has ginned up against Hillary.

36. Why does media defy logic anyway?

Common sense should tell us that since more people support Hillary than they do Trump, it would be better for ratings to lean toward her to attract the most viewers. Instead, they tend to be all-Trump all the time and alienate viewers.
They gave up on just reporting the "news" a long time ago and now simply back the Republicans because they want to compete with Fox and rake in those tax cuts.
Personally, I would rather earn more money to begin with.

Their tacit support for Trump - and Sanders over Hillary, the Republican dream election - made me turn them off.

I 'channel surf' through all the cable news networks, and even this morning, these two were acknowledging Trump is not out of line to question election results.

Obviously, MSNBC wants a contested, dramatic, viewer-driving, revenue-generating election and AM Joe is still pedaling furiously.

They have been rude and condescending to participants on their show. If they don't agree with them, they are shouted down. I doubt if Donny Deutsch will ever return after the way he was treated last week. Since he knows Trump well, he often had interesting insights. Joe interrupts those who know a lot more than he does, for example, Richard Haas. Shouting maybe great showmanship, but it does not add to the conversation. They have been particularly hard to watch since their trip to Trump tower a few weeks ago. Blackmail???
