  1. “Parts Unknown” is the best show on any cable news network, which is both ironic and sad since there is no news in it. The Cuba series sounds grand. I can’t wait to go before it gets turned into some Disneyland for American oldsters.

    • “Can’t wait to go?” Good God, the place is a communist hellhole. Do you also miss the old DDR? The Castro secret pollice are as efficient as the Stasi ever were.

    • My husband went to Cuba on a medical mission trip. Trust me, the Cuba Europeans see is not the “real” Cuba. It is the sanitized version of resorts, etc. His group spent 1 day at a “resort” and said it was fine but nothing like what they encountered everyday in their visits to hospitals, dentist offices, medical clinics. If Cuba is still such a God awful place after Europeans had decades to spend their $ there it is not going to get much better with American dollars.

      He had his hotel maid ask him if he minded her taking the partially started roll of toilet paper every day so she could sell it on the blank market to earn extra $. Of course he told her no problem.

      You are delusional if you think Cuba is going to change because of the US. They jailed dissidents the day before the re opening of the Embassy.

      • The only thing that will change Cuba is the Castro brothers and their cronies hanging from the lamp posts.

        • This was first hand from my husband and what he saw with his own eyes you jerk. If I can’t believe him I can’t believe anyone.

          So, when reporters go to a country and report on what they see that’s just “anecdotes”? When they see poverty, war, riots with their own eyes, “it’s just anecdotes” and we shouldn’t believe them? Or, because they are reporters we should believe them but heaven help me we shouldn’t believe my husband because he’s not a reporter just a medical person?

          • You should believe him. You are married to him. It is probably even true. It is still an anecdote with no value in a serious discussion. No disrespect to your spouse shown.

          • So, no comment on “reporters” telling stories. Do they not help set policy by telling stories of what they see and bring it back home to a group of people, i.e. viewers/politicians? Do they just not tell anecdotes of what they see within the little world Cuba allows them to see? I would guess some reporters have seen less than my husband. I would guess not many have been to psychiatric hospitals in Cuba or watched hours of dental treatments, or have been in surgeries to see up close and personal how sanitary conditions are. Or local clinics where patients sit for 8 hours to see anyone?

            You are full of it and I don’t want you to respond to me ever again and I will do the same for you Emperor of nothing!

          • “No disrespect?” You called him a liar. You are even more tedious than your last incarnation, Clucker.

    • My new business plan: raise a knife wielding thug and toss him in a police van. Passing GO, collect 6.3 million bucks.

  2. Do not be too hard on MSNBC. This is no different than CNN or Fox. All are low production value reality television.

  3. Today’s most popular links:
    5 last lightning round
    4 raises $3 million
    3 compelling and inoffensive
    2 impartial MSNBC journalist
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Fox’s five weeks.

  4. Personally happy Williams will be back. When I see an “esteemed” anchor like Gwen Ifill get off Scott free with her “Take that Bibi!” I’ve had all the sanctimony I can stomach.
