View Diary: Let the filibuster reform pearl-clutching commence (109 comments)

    but this morning even Jansing was clutching her pearls and wringing her hands, asking if Reid made a mistake and has now caused the GOP to dig in and swing their bats harder against Reid.  Well, I figure it's just another day in cable news. They enjoy their ability to serve their viewers the faux drama. Unfortunately, the drama they would be advised to reveal to their viewers, their readers, is the drama Reid has stirred up because McConnell, et al. had the wind knocked out of them and they need to be very clear with the facts about why this nuclear option was necessary.  The lack of real journalism is also being revealed, again.  

    For about a week I've been watching Al Jazeera America, and I thoroughly enjoy the longer discussions w/o panels of peeps echoing each other and interrupting each other to get a word in.  Instead there are calm voices, and more stimulating conversations.

    You go, Harry!  We are behind you all the way!

      Or does anyone else think Jansing looks like a character from Pokemon?

      There, I finally said it. Been bugging me for years.

      I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!

        so I haven't any idea.

        I just know that I wonder if all the MSNBC anchors were pulled in early today and told where to go with the story in the days following?

        Whatever they decide to say about the "nuclear option" it's clear it interrupts their constant reporting about the ACA "debacle."  Well, Maybe.  Maybe msnbc will do a double-whammy and step on Dems with both subjects.

        I get so exhausted with them all bumping their gums just b'cuz they can.  Dana Milbank is one of the worst, and you can add Chuck Todd and Chris Cillizza, too. They are lazy-minded mouths for MSNBC.
