    1. Sorry comrade but you’d have to lose all your morals AND be an imbecile to work there.

      They have standards and an image they have to uphold.

    2. comrade, you simply aren’t qualified, as you have both a brain and a conscience, either of which means you need not apply.

  1. NBC and other MSM outlets don’t have any clue as to what they’re doing. The efforts to smear Gabbard will make her famous, and propel her to the nomination in the same way the last honest Democrat, George McGovern, captured the nomination. While I don’t know if I could vote for her in the general election (I have not voted for a major party candidate for President in the general election in more than 40 years), I will definitely do everything in my power to see that she is nominated, including contributing to her campaign financially. I can also tell my Democrat family members and friends to check her out.

    It will be interesting to see if JR is any more objective about her than he is about Trump. She has five to ten times as much actual non-interventionist substance as Trump does. We’ll see if that’s more important to him than the fact that Trump wishes to crush immigrants under the jack-booted heel of the State (for liberty!), and see which one he’d prefer.

    1. “I have not voted for a major party candidate for President in the general election in more than 40 years”

      That’s what needs to happen across America. Vote anything but D or R whenever possible. We’re merely registering our opinion at this point anyway. No reason to encourage the bastards.

    2. Let’s see if Gabbard holds firm to her views/convictions. Let’s see if, like Tom Petty sang, she “won’t back down.” I’m skeptical, but would love to be surprised. Ron Paul never backed down on his views on these wars (ah, “interventions.”). This breath-of-fresh-air approach to politics doesn’t seem to help such people obtain the presidential office. … Then again, Trump said many of the same things Gabbard says when he was campaigning. It was only after he got elected that he became a neocon, and surrounded himself with people who championed the ideas he criticized regularly in his campaign. John Bolton, for example. Sigh.

      1. The difference is, it looks like Gabbard actually has convictions. It is looking more and more like Trump never, ever stood for anything, at least not anything good.

    3. I wouldn’t count on JR for anything anymore. For reasons only he knows, he has become a Trump bootlicker. And he knows how unpopular that is around here — that’s why he has turned off the comments section of his blog.

      1. “that’s why he has turned off the comments section of his blog.”

        Glad to know it’s that way for other people and he’s not just filtering out my account. I had trouble understanding why he would block all comments, as I thought anyone would desire feedback on what they write. It would be nice if he could take what we write to heart, and maybe actually think a little bit about why we write it.

    1. I don’t know what the current practice is in journalism, but working on newspaper and magazine journalism in high school, college, and small papers in the 1980s, you always took at least two people to an interview. You might cover a local basketball game alone and grab a couple of lines from players afterward, but if you were specifically sitting down with someone to interview him or her, a second person served both as photographer and witness.

      1. Yes, good points. However if the interview was live on the radio and recorded, as this was, the need for a “witness” is moot. My hunch is that this assistant was just for morale purposes, though it does reflect some insecurity on Weiss’s part. The least of her sins.

    2. The assistent is joe rogan’s producer, Jaime Vernon. He produces the podcast, he isn’t Bari Weiss’s assistant. Doesn’t change the fact she often didn’t know what she was talking about :)

      1. Slightly off-topic, but Raimondo really needs to be kicked off Antiwar. The Trump worship is getting to the point of being embarrassing.
