The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
On Thursday, several MSNBC anchors at various times of day were fixated on how NRA spending had benefited a number of prominent Republican political figures who had tweeted out sentiments regarding "thoughts and prayers" after the Florida shootings. After MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle first raised the issue Thursday morning and spent almost three minutes listing and showing images of nine Republicans who had benefited from NRA spending, fellow hosts Katy Tur, Ali Velshi and Brian Williams followed her lead later in the day anchoring their regular shows.
The mood on Tuesday’s 11th Hour was rather jubilant following Democrat Doug Jones’s victory in the Alabama Senate race, with assembled MSNBC guests touting the “earthquake” that resulted in a “very significant night” for the ages in America. While it’s significant that an accused child molester and predator didn’t win the race, MSNBC was undoubtedly going to be celebratory no matter who the Republican opponent was as long as the liberal candidate won.
Late Tuesday night, longtime New York Times editor Howell Raines joined MSNBC’s The 11th Hour to gush over the “historic night” in his home state of Alabama and declare that Democrat Doug Jones’s victory put the state on “the indisputably right road” “for the first time in 175 years.”
Boston Herald Washington chief Kimberly Atkins revealed during Monday’s The 11th Hour just how “really stung” she was by President Trump’s Pocahontas comment about Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) to the point that this one comment made for a “bad” and “sad day” for America. Really.
On MSNBC’s 11th Hour Monday night, disgraced fake news anchor Brian Williams warned of the “danger” of President Trump calling out liberal media bias at CNN International. The left-wing channel’s favorite “Republican,” Steve Schmidt, eagerly agreed with Williams, claiming the President was endangering journalists and behaving like an “autocrat.”
In a very serious Congressional hearing on Tuesday, Capitol Hill considered efforts to streamline the process for staffers to report sexual misconduct by their colleagues. The reforms came as the nation was in the middle of a conversation about such behavior and abusers were thrust into the spotlight. Of course, discussions about powerful men abusing women could not be had without mentioning former President Bill Clinton, but Jim Warren of the Poynter Institute didn’t want to hear any of it.
In a well-received speech before South Korean lawmakers on Tuesday, President Trump tried to rally the region and the world against the rogue North Korean regime. The President drew attention to North Korea’s decades of human rights abuses, the hellish living conditions of its people. That’s the truth about life in North Korea, but for MSNBC’s Brian Williams and members of his panel on The 11th Hour, it was just too much.
Showing just how hypocritical a supposedly unforgiving industry is, Vanity Fair unleashed a 2,600-word love letter on Tuesday to MSNBC’s The 11th Hour host, disgraced ex-NBC Nightly News anchor and serial liar Brian Williams, touting the “wistful” anchorman’s “rare second act.” The media continue to emphasize the importance of the truth and “Facts First,” but Williams’s revival showcased how, for some news organizations, such promises are, at best, less than truthful and, at worst, garbage.
On Thursday, MSNBC’s Brian Williams finally mentioned the words “Russia,” “uranium” and “Clinton” in the same segment BUT it was only to dismiss President Donald Trump’s criticism of the media’s failure to cover this week’s new revelations in the growing scandal.
On Tuesday's The 11th Hour with Brian Williams on MSNBC, anchor Brian Williams hosted a segment with former Republican Rep. David Jolly and liberal MSNBC contributor Jason Johnson to discuss Jolly's recent contention that he believes the country might be better off if his own party loses to Democrats in the 2018 congressional elections.
MSNBC’s The 11th Hour host and serial liar Brian Williams debased himself once again, showing a tinge of anti-Americanism on Wednesday by declaring that the U.S. was “the only nation on Earth to have set off nuclear weapons in anger” and deemed itself to be “the arbiter of who else gets to have them on the planet.”
Not surprisingly, Lyin’ Brian Williams prevailed during the Media Research Center’s 30th Anniversary Gala featuring the 2017 DisHonors Awards as the winner of the Dan Rather Memorial Award for the Stupidest Analysis thanks to a bonkers quote about life in communist Cuba. The Federalist’s Senior Editor Mollie Hemingway served as the category’s presenter while House Freedom Caucus Chairman and Republican Congressman Mark Meadows (N.C.) accepted the award in jest on Williams’s behalf.
