In her show NewsNation, MSNBC host Tamron Hall continued the day’s one-sided coverage by hosting, along with others, “Black Lives Matter” activists Deray McKesson and Marissa Johnson in separate full-length segments. Both segments blasted America’s law enforcement officers and labeled America as a generally anti-black society.
On Monday’s NBC Today, 9 a.m. ET hour co-hosts Tamron Hall and Willie Geist mourned Jon Stewart’s final week anchoring The Daily Show. Hall proclaimed: “Oh my goodness, it is the end of an era. In a few days Jon Stewart will bid farewell to The Daily Show and all of us.” Hall was particularly worried about Stewart’s absence following Thursday’s first Republican presidential debate: “What the saddest thing about this is that the Republican first debate is Thursday night. So we don't have Jon Stewart Friday.”
On Wednesday, MSNBC host Tamron Hall jumped on a non-story about Governor Scott Walker’s recent visit to Philadelphia in which the GOP presidential hopeful allegedly “got a tough lesson” for, wait for it, ordering a Philly cheesesteak with American cheese rather than cheese Whiz. She lectured Walker that “[if]f you're going to order Philly cheesesteak in Philly, you gotta do it the right way. First, Walker was escorted to the front of the long line at Geno's, a very popular, iconic shop. Then he ordered a sandwich in the way that was just wrong.”
MSNBC isn’t even trying to keep their “news anchors” unbiased in their reaction to today’s landmark ruling which legalized gay marriage in all 50 states
Transgenderism is so yesterday. It’s time to “discuss” transracial issues! That, of course, according to a guest on the June 15 edition of MSNBC’s NewsNation. Tamron Hall invited Earl Hutchinson – a radio host and prominent author on racial issues – to the program to chat about the still unfolding story surrounding Rachel Dolezal, the now former head of the Spokane NAACP who lied about being black.
On Friday, even the hosts of NBC’s Today had enough of Michelle Obama’s effort to micro-manage people’s food choices as they mocked the First Lady’s attempt to create a healthy version of s’mores.
On Wednesday’s NBC Today, co-host Tamron Hall stumbled upon conservative economic philosophy as she defended a hot dog vendor’s right to charge customers whatever he wanted, even if it was overpriced: “But why can’t he set his own prices? I mean, if a restaurant sells their hot dog, steak, or whatever for the price they want, why is his price regulated?”
On Tuesday, CBS This Morning and NBC’s Today continued to promote President Obama officially joining Twitter and featured numerous fawning segments highlighting the “Breaking News.” After CBS and NBC both touted Obama’s new Twitter handle on their Monday night broadcasts, their respective morning shows provided 4 minutes and 35 seconds of free promotion for the new @POTUS account.
While CBS This Morning and ABC's Good Morning America on Monday completely ignored Hillary Clinton's continued refusal to take press questions, NBC's Today gave the controversy a scant 45 seconds of air time.
After being pressed by NBC's Late Night host Seth Myers and Meet the Press moderator Chuck Todd about failing to purchase the domain name CarlyFiorina.org, Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina cleverly hit back by buying SethMeyers.org and ChuckTodd.org. On Monday's Today, trying to deflect from the GOP contender outsmarting their colleagues, the hosts searched for another unclaimed Fiorina web address to use to embarrass her.
On Monday morning, the “Big Three” (ABC, CBS, and NBC) networks rushed to promote Michelle Obama’s commencement speech at Tuskegee University in Alabama over the weekend. On CBS This Morning, Co-host Gayle declared “First Lady Michelle Obama’s receiving praise this morning for a commencement address at Tuskegee University. Her speech on Saturday offered some of her most candid remarks on how she’s grown into her historic role.”
