    1. @ushual I’d love if MSDNC ‘got religion’ because for years they have been disgusting toadies and faithful water carriers for radical leftists. They’re way too boring and obvious but America sees that. People vote with their clickers. MSDNC may finally understand that. We’ll see if they can stop being so biased.

    2. @Liberals are a Failed experiment! I’ve tried to watch him but he’s as
      disgusting as ralph Maddow and the others. I’m worried for the small
      minded drones who actually are entertained by his banal, inane broadcasts.
      That says a lot about their inability to form their own opinions without their
      constant infusion of MSDNC KoolAde.

    3. @Pake Jeffje FYI: The Hunter Biden laptop story is true. The FBI been investigating him since 2018 for money laundering & tax issues. Even William Barr- who knew about this all along, confirmed this AFTER Trump lost the election. I don’t like Hannity & Giuliani either, but our MSM-along with Twitter, Facebook DID intentionally hid this story from the voting public. Also, regarding Trump the Orange Fool: This same Media did report a lot of lies, omissions, false narratives & false information on Trump. They sometimes quietly retract their lies when no one is paying attention. Don’t take my word for it; check out stories relating to or about Trump that the MSM got wrong, like Nicholas Sandmann. He collected $500,000 from CNN & The Washington Post for lying on him about attack the Native American, Nathan Phillips. We should not let our animus for our political enemies cloud our judgment on the Truth. Our Media do need to be held accountable for deliberately misleading us.

    4. @CS Sadly, Cynthia is right. CNN, MSNBC & all the other Democrat-Friendly Media outlets ALL loss their ratings, viewership, readers & listeners since Trump lost the election. This information is researchable. Nielsen is one company to verify this. Also, think about this: Trump been out of office for 6 months, and they are STILL talking about him. Ask yourself, “WHY”? Trump is gone; we voted him out. He is NOT on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube. The stories on him now are lame Nothingburgers. The only problems on here is these Media Outlets ratings are in the toilet. They do need Trump to be relevant again. That is why they won’t let us forget about him. IF they wanted to be relevant, they could report on all the corrupt things that #46 & family did; THAT will be a REAL News story. Sadly, they will not do this. In conclusion, it’s all about business, not informing the public.

    5. @Study to show thyself approve Until the bloated tangerine showed up, literally no one cared about any news agency’s ratings. The lot of you are so tiresome.

  1. The only part of this that tickled my funnybone was Michael Steele’s 50-Cent joke. Maybe the entertainment world is a better place for Ari, though I will miss his mainstream opinion pieces. When he’s good, he’s really good.

  2. Do your job and ask tough questions of all politicians, cover the good ones not the liers and don’t give any time to the gop unless they start to do the job they are there for

    1. I’m sure you do! The only people that like this show or MSDNC are Joe supporters! That’s about 40% of the country.

  3. Mr. Melber. We have watch you do a smash up job of sharing the News. We’ve watched you grow grey. We watched you when you were tired, obviously tired. We noticed your hair, your smile, and you music passion. We love you Ari <3

    1. @Amber (Cinderz) Morthland I was hoping we can chat more privately on Google hangout, drop your email address so I can add you up.

    2. @Amber (Cinderz) Morthland
      Here’s mine. Text me on Google hangout okay.

  4. Was this a dig at Last Week Tonight’s ‘And Now’ format? Because it feels like one and I dig it.

  5. Going strong with the truth and some humor. Stay committed more than ever on your fourth year. Congratulations Ari Melber!

  6. This, Rachel Maddow and Don Lemon has to be my favorite in MSNBC, Mr Ari. It has been a pleasure, even though i started watching during the last quarter of Trump years

  7. How should media adapt? Try being honest for a change. Just the facts. less editorial.
