Widespread Internet Outage Impacts Major Websites | MSNBC


  1. We had the same kid of thing happening last month in Canada. A software update on some of the equipment crashed it. The manufacturer had to pedal FAST to fix it.

    1. Thank you, it’s amazing how quick everyone is to say “hackers did it” when it could just as well have been a bad software update on one server that got replicated around. The web technologies that we think are solid are really quite fragile sometimes.

    2. Agree, the fact that they were able to fix this so fast suggests that it was less a hack and more a typo

  2. Here from Singapore, the largest national ISP Singtel was 80% down at the same time, coincidence?

  3. Joe needs to let people finish speaking. It would be hard to work with him. You can tell everyone at the table hate him.

    1. But he’s the guy that coined the nickname Moscow Mitch. So he should get a bit of leeway.

    2. Nah! It’s a regional thing. I’m from Chicago area & people in Chicago do it too. It does make for some lively discussion at times, though.

  4. I swear that Joe is going to interrupt/talk over Mika one time too many, and she’ll reach across and ‘biff’ him….Joe has no filter or self control.

    1. Actually, I think she has, but it’s off camera. There have been occasions when he was acting out, they cut to commercial, and upon return he looks like the aftermath of when your Momma took you back to the shed; he’ll look positively chagrined. The problem is that he doesn’t seem to retain the lesson.

    2. @Thunder Belly
      And invariably says something to the effect “I’m just a country lawyer who spent time in Congress.” Of course, that time in Congress was when Newt Gingrich was Speaker. (who sounded then a lot like he sounds now)

    3. I’ve several times unsubscribed due to Joe’s annoying interruptions but Mika’s good reporting has brought me back. Next time I’ll be gone for good.

  5. if Russia can remove critical infrastructure from potential harm we have NO EXCUSE for not implementing similar protections for OUR safety. GIT ER DUN!!!

  6. When the internet was first created it was meant to only share information, I remember when the first thing and only thing you can get online was the Dow Jones then you could book airline tickets, then AOL popped up with CompuServe and others shortly after, then small businesses joined in and it was supposed to be so small businesses could make more money but then corporations took it over and now it’s cyber war.

  7. Please stop talking over her. Jesus, what she has to say is important as well. It’s a bad look for you Joe!

    1. I know. He’s just like the crusty ol’ codgers waiting on a bench at the barbers. I know this. I’m one, too. Frustrated, impatient, an ageing old fart of no possible interest.

  8. Perfect example of INFRASTRUCTURE that needs improvement! Support the FULL Biden proposal. Lives & the economy depend on it!

  9. The Russians are at it again. Let’s just sit by and watch as they destroy the world or maybe just the US.

  10. I think MSNBC should put Joe with Rachel for a week. That should cure him of always butting into conversations. Rachel talks so fast, he won’t have any time to interrupt. 🤔🙄

  11. It really is irritating how Joe Always interrupts Mika and talks over her. And she Married this guy ?

    1. I’m a man, and I don’t like violence. but I admit that sometimes I’d like to see her punch him when he once again interrupts her.

  12. “The more they overthink the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain.” — Montgomery Scott
