  •  I saw James Elon on MHP (17+ / 0-)

    The entire show was riveting and his segment especially so.

    He was clearly suffering Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and with good reason. The discussion veered into an often completely overlooked aspect of why are American police forces using tear gas anyway when it is essentially a chemical weapon whose use is banned in actual war?

    I almost want to write David Gregory a thank you note for his fecklessness and lack of integrity driving me away from decades old viewing habits of watching network TV Sunday news shows. I have been more engaged and more informed by the line-up on MSNBC over the last year than anything I ever got out of watching the MSM Sunday Talking Points line-up. I have heard more and better discussion from people I have never heard of before, many of them academics or journalists, than I have ever gotten previously.

    I don't see myself returning to MTP and Face the Nation and This Week with their assortment of All the Usual Suspects saying All the Usual Things.

    Melissa Harris Perry has been amazing.
