  1. Crazy, how this meeting for Joe & Mika had to take place on NYE at Mar-a-lago? This couldn’t have waited until after the New Year? Joe confirmed that his family stayed at Mar-a-lago 5-6 years running but they decided not to stay this year.
    This stinks but it involves Joe & Mika so it doesn’t surprise me.

    Another issue-not quite cable related but MTP/Chuck Todd related. Sounds like Chuck has had his feelings hurt by DT. Reading this & the comments made me laugh and want to send poor Chuck a box of Kleenex.

    • As a fellow New Yorker I am pretty sure he knows to never fight fair. You may lose. Invent a name for him and call him first so he can tell him how stupid he is would be more likely.
      I still always carry a rock in pocket wherever i go.

  2. Hannity is going to Russia to interview Assange in London? That is quite a scoop.

    I hope Sean asks Assange about the DNC Seth Rich’s murder and why Assange is offering a reward for information.

  3. Before I forget, on New Year’s Eve, I watched two sibling news channels ring in 2017. First, Sky News at 7PM ET, and then Fox News at midnight ET (albeit on DVR in the morning). I watched London’s New Year’s ceremony from start to finish, but only saw the countdown and heard the Guy Lombardo arrangement of “Auld Lang Syne” before skipping ahead to hear if the hosts would resume talking. Five songs went by and I only heard the music; no dialogue. So, I stopped and erased my recording.
