You can agree with everything that Rachel Maddow or Ed Schultz say on MSNBC and still oppose their right to say it.
Especially when they and their hyped-up panelists shout that Republican claims are “lies,” or Chris Matthews says that Republicans view welfare recipients as “looters.” MSNBC panelists gave Mitt Romney his due on Thursday but mocked his audience. Mr. Matthews noted that when Mr. Romney called for Americans to give the poor a helping hand, Mr. Matthews said, “He got zero applause,” adding, “I think that’s so telling about tonight.”
That story ↑ is hilarious. Pure comedy. Meet Ms. Pot.
But more importantly, best wishes to everyone affected.
NEW ORLEANS - The storm that was Hurricane Isaac - and which is now a tropical depression - swirled into the central U.S. Friday, leaving behind a darkened, soggy mess in Louisiana. Neighborhoods were underwater, and even homes that stayed dry didn't have lights, air conditioning or clean water.
There's still significant flooding along the Gulf Coast, and thousands of people are in shelters this morning, said CBS News correspondent Byron Pitts.
New Orleans broke an all-time rainfall record, getting more than 18 inches in 24 hours - and more rain is headed north toward the Midwest.
Cord cutters in some countries will be happy.
An HBO streaming service that does not require an associated cable subscription is coming in mid-October, according to Variety. The rollout is confined to only a few European countries, but it's an embrace from Time Warner to cord-cutters that non-HBO customers have long sought.
The service, named HBO Nordic AB, will allow customers in Sweden, Norway, Finland, and Denmark to stream subtitled versions of the same content available in the US. Original series like Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire, as well as movies that are featured by the channel, will be streamable at HBONordic.com.
