MSNBC Corporate Office

MSNBC was founded in 1996 as a partnership between Microsoft and NBC television group. The company operates a cable news service and is a subsidiary of NBCUniversal, which is owned by Comcast.

As of 2015, more than 9.5 million households in the US alone had access to this popular news and opinion channel. Also in 2015, the company fell to third place, behind CNN. Because of this, the channel made programming changes to add at least 8 hours a day of “hard news” programming, such as adding Greta Van Susteren, former Fox News anchor, to a 1 hour in depth news program at 6PM, and The 11th Hour with Brian Williams at 11PM, with Rachael Maddow and Chris Hayes filling the prime time hours.

MSNBC is also viewed internationally, as well as online and on XM and Sirius Satellite radio. The channel has been accused of “liberal bias” by several newspaper reporters and even former President Bill Clinton.

I am astounded about MSNBC and their efforts to give most female emcee’s and many regular guests a Shirley Temple hairdo. It’s become like an illness at the network. Not every woman is flattered by ringlets. The female anchors and contributors do not look the same, like some kind of Stepford wife. Casey is the latest. It’s just not her, just as it isn’t like many of your correspondents and anchors. These are striking women on their own. There is no need to turn them into Barbie dolls. It is an insult to their individual talents. To come directly to the point, it’s as annoying as hell. If there is only one pre-show hairdresser, please either replace that hairdresser, hire additional hairdressers, and let the women be the individuals they are.

I am outraged that MSNBC and the Rachel Maddow allowed Hillary Clinton to make a call out to our enemy China to hack into the Federal IRS database containing the identifying information for every single American taxpayer and putting us all at risk to obtain a sitting United States Presidents tax returns. This is a consumer protection violation of the highest order and I have filed complaints with the FCC, DHS, FBI, U.S. Attorney General and the Consumer Protection Bureau for your dangerous and clearly thoughtless antics. Identity theft is a very real and imminent threat to all American’s and your network has now enabled and encouraged these cyber thiefs to attack and steal information on private American citizens over ridiculous political grandstanding! You should fire Rachel Maddow, drop that show and remove every instance of those comments from every archive online immediately! If my identity is stolen again as a result of a Chinese hack into the IRS database, I WILL sue the living crap out of ALL OF YOU!

I am outraged to the highest levels that you allowed Rachel Maddow and Hillary Clinton to urge our enemy China to hack into the Federal IRS database containing the identifying information of every single American taxpayer on international television and that you have KEPT that call to China to violate our cybersecurity up on your broadcast websites. In an era where identity theft is very real and an imminent threat to EVERY American this was a violation of consumer protection of the highest order. I have filed complaints with every department I can think of including the FCC, FBI, DHS, Consumer Protection Bureau and the Attorney General of the United States. You should be ashamed of yourselves for putting us all at risk for political grandstanding! SHAME ON YOU!

Is William Barr receiving any compensation or promises from the Right Wing donors or any related and/or directed entities ?
Since Citizens United, the worst law ever ratified in the history of our Democracy, has stripped Republican’s constituent’s representation, is it not common sense that they can touch all influential people, like William Barr, Lindsay Graham, Chuck Grassley and other Republicans that side with Trump over Law and Their Oaths of Office.
Does this subject warrant investigation as the elimination of Citizens United might change the complexion of our current political representatives? Or, Maybe it will expose the true motivations of these seriously lacking rubber stamps for Trump.

I just spoke to an MSNBC representative, a young man to whom my call was forwarded, and told him that somebody attending the Press Conference being held by Attorney General William Barr (supposedly the American people’s top cop, but more likely a Trump toady) should ask while on camera: Can you be an objective Attorney General when your own son-in-law Tyler McCaughey left his Justice Department job as U.S. Atty for VA Eastern District as soon as you were confirmed to move over to the WHITE HOUSE to be a White House Counsel? The second question should be “Why did your Justice Department employee daughter MARY DALY transfer over to work with the FINANCIAL CRIMES ENFORCEMENT NETWORK or FinCEN at Treasury as soon as you were the new Trump-picked AG? Is this part of a criminal cover-up of financial crimes committed by Donald Trump, the Trump Foundation (working with Felix Sater-headed Russian-owned BAYROCK GROUP) involving money-laundering of millions of dollars stolen from the Russian TREASURY, done through New York’s PREVEZON HOLDING that is part of Trump’s money-laundering crimes? Felix Sater, an FBI informant from 1991, is the Russian-born son of the U.S.-active Russian MAFIA crime boss and a convicted felon who was Trump’s senior business partner from 2001 with offices on the same floor as Donald Trump’s at Trump Tower.

I think it is clear either way Jussie Smollett is a troubled young man and needs to know that this too shall pass. He is loved by millions and the media needs to stop all the hype to give Jussie a chance to gather his thoughts, contact his attorneys and go talk to the police.

It has truly been confirmed as of yesterday Jan. 18th that your network has turned into a propaganda fake news no credibility organization. Yesterday it was all about the uncollaborated false Bussfeed lying article & today it’s “crickets.” We, the American people are sick & tired of your daily shameful tactics using “catch phrases” that is repeated like an echo chamber on all fake news networks, including this one. It makes all of you look like a bunch of buffoons. My family will never & I mean never watch any of your programing again until you apologize to the American people & President Trump. Now it would take real courage to do that, but until that is done your organization will be just another “garbage” news network that has lost all credibility. Using Michelle Obama’s comment on Jimmy Fallon’s show “Good Bye Felicia!” Shame, shame, shame on your network! Oh, just a reminder, Hillary Clinton lost the election, get over it!!!!

Peggy Bunch: As a military trained former journalist, I take issue with your attack on MSNBC—the best researched and most in-depth reporting that exists. As a war-time military veteran I have to wonder how in the world can you defend the long-term Trump connection to and criminal behaviors with the Russian MAFIA, or how you can condone the idea of a hostile foreign power interfering in our democratic processes to insert an incompetent lifts-wearing malignantly narcissistic dangerously unstable pathologically lying sociopath like Donald Trump into our White House! It was “The Rachel Maddow Show” that first uncovered the name FELIX SATER, a long-time Trump business partner (from 2001) who was also caught by our FBI in 1991 as a stockbroker setting up a $40M stock fraud scheme to benefit LA COSA NOSTRA crime families (the Russian MAFIA) with whom Trump has done business over the years. How can you call the Steele documents, originally recruited during the GOP primaries by a Republican competitor, “fake”? Admit it—Donald Trump is all façade—all sizzle, no steak. “The Making of Donald Trump” by David Cay Johnston; “The Plot to Destroy Democracy” by career CIA counterespionage expert Malcolm Nance; “Russian Roulette” by veteran journalists Michael Isikoff and David Corn; or just watch MSNBC’s evening programs.

I would like to express my disappointment in MSNBC deciding to air Trumps racist “Caravan” commercial. I do not mind the fact that you see an ads from Republicans on MSNBC…after all they also have the right to attempt to persuade voters the same as Democrats do. However – I do not like it when you air an obviously racist commercial. No amount of advertising dollars should be worth it. There may be some kind of “fair reporting” or “fairness in advertising” law that applies and therefore could not turn down the ad….but if this was not the case then you company made a huge mistake! DO BETTER MSNBC!

Dear Sir
Trump wants his name in front of the world, regardless it is good or bad. He does not care. He wants people see him, hear him and read about him every hour.
The best thing the media can do is “STOP TALKING ABOUT HIM”. If you cannot do that then mention in a fine print only once a day with a very little coverage.

When you have Maxine Waters on MSNBC she seems to become more idiotic each time. Threatening to have conservatives kicked out of restaurants. Each liberal guest you have only shows the American voter how outrageous the democrats have become Does MSNBC not know that a self admitted communist George Soros is behind what is going on in the country.

Your anchors and so called journalists are completely out of control with the fake reports they give. Look how many times they have to walk a story back or apologize for some nasty statements they make.

Your videos start and stop and start all over again. I can’t get through 1 video on your news site without this happening. There are complaints all over the place on the internet and you ignore it. I have emailed you 3 times and not one reply. At least put your reports in writing so that we can get the news instead of just headlines. CNN and for God’s sake FAUX News has videos that work. People are dropping cable tv and getting their news online. Your crappy videos is not going to make me pay to watch you when I can watch CNN videos.

To the MSNBC Corporate HQs,

First let me explain how upset I was to hear that Joan Walsh has been let go by the MSNBC new bosses. For the life of me I can’t understand how you can let such a valuable voice go after 12 years of telling the truth about our country and our government. We only have a few voices that we can rely on to give us the fact, but you continue to hire the right wing hacks on your network that only want to take over like Fox so called news. If MSNBC becomes that type of news outlet we will only have CNN letft on TV and we all will be forced to satellite radio and just turn off the TV. I don’t expect to hear from anyone since you never respond anyway. Can someone please pass this on to the news division bosses and let them know that we are upset and really don’t understand this at all.

Loyal Viewer, (for now)

Why is MSNBC still claiming Russia interfered with our elections when after a year of investigation all we have is Robert Muller and company leading us to Facebook? Its time to stop the Media war on Russia so the rest of the country can deal with real problems like race, healthcare and a balanced budget. Like thousands of others we are changing stations to were we can go from gossip and slander to dealing with real world problems.

Rober Duthler: MSNBC is “still claiming Russia interfered” because Putin-directed Russian MAFIA and military spies did interfere with our democratic processes. Putin has been in a giant hissy-fit temper tantrum ever since our 2012 bipartisan Congress imposed sanctions on Putin’s inner-circle oligarchs and banks or bankers with the MAGNITSKY ACT in protest of the Putin-ordered torture-murder of whistleblower forensics economist Sergei Magnisky, hired by American businessman Bill Browder of Hermitage—a successful U.S.-owned hedge fund company that the New York-based Russian-owned money-laundering and tax theft, tax fraud-committing PREVEZON HOLDING (owner Denis Katsyv, son of Pytor Katsyv of Moscow, former Transportation Minister and a Trump contact) through which Trump Organization and his partner Felix Sater’s Bayrock Group laundered millions of dollars stolen from the Russian Treasury. Putin hated those economic sanctions and imposed his ban on U.S. adoptions for American couples to retaliate. Because our allies in Europe participated in the U.S.-imposed Magnitsky Act economic sanctions and freezing of these Russian MAFIA assets, KGB-trained Vladimir Putin began resorting to old Cold War tactics, to include using embedded operatives living as Americans and influencing our 2016 election.

MSNBC is doing its job. You should read Malcolm Nance’s 2018 book, “The Plot to Destroy Democracy: How Putin and His Spies Are Undermining America and Dismantling the West.” One way they do this is to keep us a nation divided against itself with Russian MAFIA trolls and bots used to spread disinformation that you are now repeating.

I would like this station to have news. Not the crap I hear, so I have stopped watching my favorite station. The haltered, the untruths, the venom is unreal. Lies from your guests,
No positive messages. This is from all your anchors all day long and into the evening..
I am a Democrat, but, when we lost the election, as Americans we move on to get our Country going. I would like for this station to tell me why all the Hatred for President Trump.
Both Campaigns were low life and nasty. But, the election is over. The American people voted who they wanted in office. As Americans why are the Democrats so hateful and never say anything positive about the President. What has he done? This is what I would like to know., Then maybe I can again watch my favorite channel. Not as long as the anchors are acting like communists and dictators.

I thought we had hit a new low with Representative Wilson politicizing President Trump’s phone call to a woman who was grieving her slain husband. Even if Rep. Wilson was in the car and overheard the conversation, it was not her place to speak about it. Now we have a bigger low point in the history of this country with Lawrence O’Donnell running his big mouth about General Kelly’s comments. Basically I guess he is calling General Kelly a racist. General Kelly has given his life and his son’s life to this country. Rep. Wilson is disgusting and Lawrence O’Donnell should be kicked off of television. Another reason why I will not turn my dial to an NBC show if you paid me money.

Listen I was watching CNBC just a few minutes past six o’clock (9/10) and heard your reporters editorializing about the Republicans and their issues with the environment global warming etc. in the middle of a hurricane!

Now I am a democrat and agree with the sentiments I worked for Obama and attended his inauguration but there is no place for this in reporting a national disaster where people’s lives are at stake. It is time to look at the to move forward and avoid the ranker.

Shame on you.

You are only fueling the great divide in this country when you should simply be reporting on the situation. Review the news feed for that time and see if you feel that is appropriate journalism or not.

Sorry but I am ashamed of your coverage and I am a lifetime viewer of NBC. Can you imagine how you inflame those on the other side when you should leave well enough alone??

If someone does not take the high road we will all be in the quagmire.

The spoiled-brat Koch brother oil barons Charles and David and their secret Koch Donor Network peddling their billionaires’ anti-democracy and anti-regulations “absolute power” seeking libertarianism—a.k.a., plutocracy—since at least 1979 is behind the GOP’s wrong-headed views on the issue of global warming.
