While gearing up to push the income inequality narrative Obama so desperately needs (and 99% of Americans don’t care about), MSNBC put its money where its mouth is by handing Ronan Farrow his own television show. Therefore, never let it be said that a wealthy white male born into The Top 1% of Hollywood Royalty can’t succeed in America. Also ascending into the hole left by Martin Bashir being shown the door and Thomas Roberts’ move to pre-dawn is Joy Reid. Here’s the new schedule:
- 9 AM: The Daily Rundown with Chuck Todd
- 10 AM: [Chris] Jansing & Co.
- 11 AM: NewsNation with Tamron Hall
- 12 PM: Andrea Mitchell Reports
- 1 PM: Ronan Farrow
- 2PM: Joy Reid
- 3PM: The Cycle
- 4PM: NOW with Alex Wagner
Of note is that the new schedule creates two blocks of two different styles of programming. Starting with Chuck Todd at 9 am and ending with Andrea Mitchell at 2 pm, MSNBC has scheduled its information-driven shows that are formatted more like a newscast. After 2pm it’s the visual talk radio formatting that is almost exclusively driven by host opinion.
After the announcement was made official, Farrow fired off a Tweet to let us all know where his precious head is at:
New Gallup poll says 67% of Americans dissatisfied with wealth distribution. 7% are “very satisfied” and I would like what they are smoking.

I have little doubt that while earning millions at his new MSNBC gig, Ronan Farrow will push hard to remedy this injustice with everyone’s money but his own and his family’s.
