  1. Woah Greta on MSNBC would be very interesting and a change of pace for MSNBC. Plus that would give her and Tucker Carlson something in common being on all 3 main cable news channels.

  2. Mika’s text messages from Valarie Jarrett replaced by Donald himself? Hey, I wouldn’t rule it out. Maybe a Twitter DM?

      • Greta treats all sides with respect. That’s why the MSNBC cultists are up in arms; they have no clue what she does and get all their information from liars like O’Donnell and Maddow. Assuming this all proves true, Greta will do fine there, still treating everyone with respect, but the bookers will do like they do for Hayes etc and tilt the guest lists in a way to pander to the cult. Result: almost instantaneously there will be a ‘strange new respect’ for Greta because she’s no longer an employee of the eeeevil super villains of Fox News. But she’ll be crushed by Bret Baier and how long she’ll put up with that while making just a fraction of what she earned at FNC remains to be seen.

        • Well that was fast. Same MSNBC cultist, just six hours apart:

          -> Well, -there’s- a super not good idea.
          -> Cool, she can try her hand at journalism again.

          They’ve got the reprogramming down to a science.

          • MSNBC tried the whole lean forward thing … it didn’t work so they have to try something different, and the fans of that programming style have to live with MSNBC decision to cut it.

        • I think she’s been very fair to both sides, she says what she thinks and it’s always varied.
          I’d watch her on MSNBC … and I think she’ll crush Wolf.. at least.

      • Greta is BFF’s with Hillary, that’s why she came on her show for an interview

        I think Greta is a PUMA, she hates Obama for stealing the nomination away from Hillary

        Don’t know what Greta will do at MSNBC? Revert back into more of a Liberal? Hmmm

  3. Re Concha: If MSNBC learned anything they learned that having the same pov from 1pmet-11pmet is annoying and boring. Their current schedule is much better. Greta would be a great choice for MSNBC (and I think they would let her be Greta,she doesn’t seem to be the person you force around).

  4. Today’s most popular links:
    5 14 of top 15 slots
    4 latest Trump news
    3 bland welcome
    2 6:00pm slot
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 Wemple: Tucker Carlson, Fox’s ‘sexist pig’.

  5. Greta kind of reminds me of Major Garrett, who also hated working for Fox News. Maybe she is more liberal than we thought.
