Following Harry Reid’s speech Tuesday afternoon on the Senate floor trashing Donald Trump as he did with Mitt Romney, MSNBC guest and liberal lawyer Alan Dershowitz slammed Reid for loosely tossing around the accusation of anti-Semitism among Trump’s staff and suggested Reid check out far-left college campus for real instances of anti-Semitism.

Liberals can get strangely honest on camera after an electoral defeat. On MSNBC Live with Stephanie Ruhle on Wednesday morning, the guests were two liberals, former Newsweek and New Yorker editor Tina Brown and New York Times columnist Frank Bruni.

But Ruehl wondered if Donald Trump won because political correctness and a fear of social media ostracism causes voters to silence themselves about the burdens of government mandates like family leave and ObamaCare.

In light of the bombshell Fox News Channel report on Wednesday night about the Clinton Foundation, the liberal media’s shameful cover-up and smearing of the story continued well into Thursday afternoon as MSNBC acknowledged the story but repeatedly chided Fox News perpetuating a story using “anonymous sources” that’s not “corroborated or substantiated.”

After Fox News’ Bret Baier broke a story late Wednesday revealing the magnitude and seriousness of the FBI investigation into the Clinton e-mails, the network morning shows promptly ignored the bombshell report, and some journalists at MSNBC tried to dismiss the news. On Thursday’s MSNBC Live, anchor Craig Melvin shut down a Trump surrogate for bringing up the new report on the FBI investigation as “unverified” and moving on to another topic. But what he didn’t realize was that his network had already reported on it earlier in the day.

On MSNBC Live October 31, Clinton surrogate James Carville got into a heated exchange with anchor Thomas Roberts over the renewed FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. Carville, a staunch Clinton supporter, became angry at Roberts for not parroting his viewpoint that Republicans were trying to influence the election. From the get-go, Carville repeatedly made ludicrous claims about the “House Republicans” working with the “KGB” to threaten the FBI, in order to rig the election.

Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway naturally took to the cable news airwaves on Friday afternoon to comment on the bombshell news concerning new details the FBI will investigate regarding Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server and on MSNBC, she was pressured to withdraw her candidate’s insistence that the “system” is rigged to benefit Clinton.

On MSNBC Live Thursday afternoon, campaign correspondent Katy Tur reported from a Donald Trump rally, when she started arguing with what Trump was saying on stage about WikiLeaks. Anchor Andrea Mitchell urged her to explain how Trump was wrong and stressed that there had been no “collusion” between former CNN analyst turned DNC chair Donna Brazile and Hillary Clinton ahead of a Democratic primary debate.

This morning on MSNBC Live, anchor Stephanie Ruhle interviewed Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway and the interview quickly turned condescending. While defending Trump against the allegations and trying to pivot back to talk on Wikileaks, Ruhle lectured Conway that she was setting a bad example for her children by defending Trump. “You’ve got to look at your kids when you go home at night,” Ruhle scolded. “I don’t let my kids watch Donald Trump in the fear that he will say to a woman in the audience, ‘You’re fat,’” she added.

Appearing as a guest on MSNBC Live Saturday afternoon to discuss the aftermath of the release of a recording of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump making lewd comments about women from 2005, Jason Johnson of The Root made his latest over the top claim that Trump has a history of making "explicit overtures" to the Ku Klux Klan, going on to claim that such actions by Trump accounted for "part of his popularity."

Here at NewsBusters, Florida-based NBC News correspondent Kerry Sanders has had quite the record over the years (and especially recently) of creating unintentionally humorous and viral moments ranging from trying to talk inside a gun range to misidentifying alligators. Needless to say, Hurricane Matthew has bred another slew of memories that, thanks to the internet, will live on forever.

In a seven-minute segment on Friday, Democrat Howard Dean did not apologize for his speculation during Monday night's presidential debate about Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's use of cocaine. The specific tweet: "Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?"

During Monday night's presidential debate, former DNC chairman and 2004 presidential candidate Howard Dean tweeted: "Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?" Even the tabloid site TMZ described Dean's tweet as a "low blow." Unbowed, Dean doubled down at MSNBC on Tuesday, to the point where a clearly uncomfortable Kate Snow tried to maneuver him into backing away a bit. He wouldn't, which is fine with Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post, who told the network's Peter Alexander on Wednesday that "we should probably be talking more about" Dean’s speculation.
