:yeahthat:

I love Jen Psaki as WH spox, but I have seen nothing in her style or language use that leads me to believe she would be a successful progressive news host/contributor. All the things that work so well for her as spox--her deference to the strict party line, her flat delivery, her slightly strangled irritations, and ever her brief Faux news put-downs, do not seem to me to be attributes that will translate to an hour-long show a la Maddow, Wallace, Hayes, or what's his name at 10.

Ronan Farrow (not a Psaki parallel, just another media dude who was briefly on the front page of progressive stars) last about two weeks as an MSNBC show host. Which is to say that it's no shame to Psaki if she doesn't cut the mustard.

I wish they'd move Nicole to take over the days Rachel won't be on - that would be a great time to have her on, and I bet she could hold a lot of Rachel's audience.

I've thought of that--but she is just so amazing in the 4 to 6 slot, I would miss her and the stable of guests she has assembled (except Donnie D, who has never in his life listened to what is actually saying). It's the approach she takes and that they rise to--experienced, wicked smart, passionate, insisting on calling a spade a spade. Watching the smoke rise from Nicolle's ears day after day as the Republican destructo-hypocrites is one of the few joys of my political life these days.

I like Chris Hayes a lot too--don't get the dismissiveness; he's another one who will not abide anyone normalizing what is happening.

Karine Jean-Pierre will become the new White House press secretary when Jen Psaki departs her role in the coming weeks, President Joe Biden announced in a statement Thursday, becoming the first Black and out LGBTQ person to hold the position.

Jean-Pierre currently serves as the White House’s principal deputy press secretary.

“Karine not only brings the experience, talent and integrity needed for this difficult job, but she will continue to lead the way in communicating about the work of the Biden-Harris Administration on behalf of the American people,” Biden said in a statement, adding that “Jen Psaki has set the standard for returning decency, respect and decorum to the White House Briefing Room.”

Jean-Pierre will formally begin following Psaki’s last day, which will be May 13. CNN reported in April that Psaki was planning on leaving her role for one at MSNBC.

MSNBC is making another big change to its lineup.

Chuck Todd‘s Meet the Press Daily — an extension of NBC’s venerable news program Meet the Press — is relocating from MSNBC to streaming outlet NBC News NOW, where it will now be known as Meet the Press NOW. The newly branded hour will stream weekdays at 4 pm ET beginning Monday, June 6.

As a result of the move, MSNBC Senior National Correspondent Chris Jansing will begin anchoring MSNBC Reports at 1 pm, as of Thursday, May 26.

“NBC News is the leader in streaming news,” NBC News President Noah Oppenheim said in a statement Friday. “Since our launch, we’ve been committed to delivering the best of NBC News’ journalism, free, to streaming audiences everywhere. Chuck was one of the first broadcast anchors to see the massive potential of streaming, and bringing Meet the Press‘ daily franchise to NBC News NOW reinforces the platform’s status as the destination for news on streaming.”

Woah, with this level of shakeup he might work up to high levels of journalism. Such as frowning at a Republican answer, or even asking a follow up question.

After 5+ wonderful years at BuzzFeed News, I'll be taking a buyout and leaving soon. I'm proud of my work and what the phenomenal politics team accomplished. I've loved being part of this newsroom and am deeply sad about what's happening (🧵)

"At a recent meeting in Washington with producers and journalists, Mr. Licht said he wanted to book more Republicans and conservatives on [CNN's] political shows to offer a wider range of viewpoints."
:think: I am sure CNN tried this about 4-5 years ago, and not many of the Republicans they first brought in were such irrational asses who talked over everyone else on any discussion panels that they didn't last very long.

BREAKING: MSNBC Names Rachel Maddow Replacement
MSNBC has found the host that will replace Rachel Maddow at 9 p.m.: Alex Wagner.

“I am absolutely thrilled and honored and generally upside down with excitement to come back home to @MSNBC to host the 9PM hour, beginning August 16th,” Wagner said on Twitter. “LET’S DO THIS.”

The New York Times broke the news on Monday morning. In an interview with the Times, MSNBC president Rashida Jones pointed to Wagner’s experience covering politics as her strong suit.

“This is not a show where our hair is on fire and we’re yelling past each other, and we’re creating these manufactured moments of tension,” Jones told the Times. “I really want the takeaway from this show to be a better understanding of what’s happening in the world.”

I’m thrilled - I love Alex Wagner!

Now if only they’d replaced Brian Williams with Ali Velshi…but that ship has sailed.
