During her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Thursday, host Andrea Mitchell dismissed the controversy over Bill Clinton’s private meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch as nothing more than a “conspiracy theory” as she rushed to defend Hillary Clinton. Mitchell lamented even having to discuss story: “Now on top of all of this, as though there weren't enough conspiracy theories out there already...."

In case you weren’t aware, the liberal Chris Matthews is the king of the “tough questions.” That’s according to a new ad airing on MSNBC. In the spot, Matthews brags, “I take it as my job not to just ask the tough questions... but to get answers to them.”

Apparently following up on his Washington Post column earlier this week, the paper's Chris Cillizza appeared on Thursday's Morning Joe show and observed that Hillary Clinton has "large-scale problems on honesty and trustworthines," that "she is the status quo" and "represents the past." Because of that, and despite the conventional wisdom in much of the establishment press that Mrs. Clinton can't possibly lose in November, Cillizza argues that her Republican opponent "can win this race."

Cillizza has previously staunchly denied media bias in the coverage of Mrs. Clinton's campign. That's hard to square with what Tim Graham at NewsBusters observed on Wednesday, namely the contrast between Cillizza's take — "Hillary Clinton’s email story continues to get harder and harder to believe" — and the fact that no televsion network had "noticed this latest AP (Associated Press) story and (Mrs. Clinton's) latest (very problematic) batch of emails."

A day after he wondered why terrorists always use bombs, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews spent parts of Wednesday night’s show comparing President Barack Obama to Reggie Jackson in being a clutch campaigner for Hillary Clinton this fall but worrying that the President’s jousting with Donald Trump could cause him to lose “some of his glow.”

Wednesday on Morning Joe, host Joe Scarborough finally got mad over the report released by the Select Committee on Benghazi. The report outlined the colossal failure of Hillary Clinton’s State Department for the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, in September 2012. Even Jon Meacham joined in the angry chorus as the two vehemently disagreed with Hillary Clinton’s position that “it’s time to move on.” According to Scarborough, Clinton “got it completely wrong.”

A few segments after MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews questioned why terrorists often turn to bombs as their weapons of choice, Matthews surprisingly hammered Democratic Congressman and possible Clinton running mate Xavier Becerra on the Benghazi Committee’s findings about the administration’s inability to save Americans trapped at the ill-fated consulate.

All three cable networks dedicated droves of airtime Tuesday evening to the Istanbul terrorist attack and on two occasions, MSNBC’s Hardball host Chris Matthews wondered “how much brains does it take” for someone to become a suicide bomber and why do terror attacks “always seem to involve bombing” instead of something else.

In the aftermath of the Clinton/Warren rally in Cincinnati, MSNBC correspondents hailed the “magic” of what was apparently more like a “rock concert” than a campaign event. On Tuesday, Morning Joe exhibited more of the same as they obsessed over Clinton and Warren’s “really good chemistry.” Yes, another MSNBC groupie took the compulsive idolization to another level, as host Joe Scarborough likened Warren to rock n’ roll legend Led Zeppelin:

MSNBC’s Ari Melber filled in for Lawrence O’Donnell as host on The Last Word Monday night, where he and his guests, The Nation’s Joan Walsh and CBS News Sunday Morning Contributor Nancy Giles talked about Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s speech with Hillary Clinton earlier that day.

They went on and on, suggesting the women looked like a “pretty good winning ticket for the fall” who resembled the “boomer magic” of Bill Clinton and Al Gore.

This just in: Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren performed live in a rock concert in Cincinnati, Ohio on Monday. According to their devoted groupies at MSNBC, the concert served as an “audition” for Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is being vetted for vice president.
