All right this is the first week of programming since MSNBC eviscerated LEFTY shows, leaving only a sliver of salvation in the evening. Let me tell you, the new format STINKS! Whatever ransom-golden parachute Phil Griffin holds over the network can't excuse rewarding rampant & egregious failure. The afternoon is bloated with reporting on the GOP. I'd get stuck on a toilet with the diarrhea and vomiting for days than listen to conservatives. The network pretends as though Democrats no longer exist in this GOP fantastical bizzaro world than to listen to another broadcast from Thomas Roberts (and I like him) about that orangutan Trump. And the explosion of conservative pundits, strategists sucking on the MSNBC payroll tit from every dark crevice is an infestation of rats, and vermin from a flood.

The formula to maintain competitive ratings was and remains easy: provide facts, analysis steeped in reality minus hourly redundancy presented by a previous show. Only an idiot could have mucked this up OR a covert conservative hired by FOX to tank the network's efforts to supplement the progressive/ liberal movement....well, mission accomplished. WTH & F!?

I want Olberman, Bashir, their brash hard hitting commentary were unparalleled.....I miss Wagner, Reid, Schultz & the weekend show hosts from 2014, even the gnats from the Cycle. These broadcasters & commentators united the conscience of our coalition "To Lean Forward". It is no coincidence, the disintegration of MSNBC culminates with the onset of the 2016 election cycle and the sunset of Pres. Obama's tenure...gerrymandering, poll taxes, & cheating isn't enough for them. Yeah, I'm mad, I bet you are too, but let's channel it
