    This article claims it was due to ratings. Rather you always agreed with Greta or not, she’s an excellent journalist. MSNBC was beneath her imo.

      I also thought she was going to be wasted there. Love Vanity Fair’s tag line—-it reminds of the other delusional cheerleading that the liberal media does. Samantha Bee is on fire! Colbert is incredible! ratings are up up up! but when you back out to the wide shot its just the usual mediocre acts vying for a bigger piece of a pie that was never more than the size of a tart.

      If she has been fired for lack of ratings, I am sorry for her. I am not a big Greta fan for a whole lot of reasons, including that horrible bright yellow jacket she needs to burn.

      I watched her occasionally when she was on Fox. She was actually okay. Her personal style wasn’t one I especially enjoyed, and I viewed her with great suspicion.

      However I noticed she was pretty conservative fiscally and demanded accountability from government on fiscal issues.

      She is also friends with Franklin Graham and would have him on fairly often. I applaud her for that, especially since I have heard she is a Scientologist.

      She also is, I believe, a friend or at least friendly to PDJT. IIRC she was pretty even handed in her treatment of him, unlike others I could name.

      Considering what we have to choose from in the news media business, she is actually one of the better ones.

        She and her husband are friends of Sarah and Todd Palin. I believe her husband, an attorney, was one of Palin’s lawyers during the time they targeted her as Governor of Alaska before she resigned. It may have to do with Palin’s lawsuit against the NYT if Greta’s husband is involved.

        Greta was very gracious and respectful to Trump and Melania. She also chewed out Gowdy often on her show for dragging his feet on Benghazi. She knew the courts and process and she cornered him more than once in his lack of using supeona powers and other legal avenues. She knew he was in the tank. She was always advocating for our military and was instrumental in freeing the marine Mexico imprisoned. Greta is a white hat. I put her in the Sharyl Attkinson category.

          I like Greta very much. She has fallen prey to the Leftist Hate crowd as have so many of today’s reporters. While I might not have agreed with everything she said I learned something everytime I watched her program. I will miss her style — her sense of honesty and her humanity. Its sad that we will only have the memories of those who made us think for ourselves because what’s left are those who feel they have to force us to think as they do.

      MSNBC and Greta Van Susteren Agree to Part Ways
      June 29, 2017

      -snipped-

      *…In an era where liberal anger is driving ratings, the former Fox anchor’s show never caught fire.

      *…Months later, she found a new home for her show, For the Record, at 6 p.m. on MSNBC.

      *…Some media critics were confused by what appeared to be a deliberate shift rightward by NBC leadership at a time when the network’s audience was suddenly agitating for a louder, prouder brand of liberalism

      *…The anchor, whose show struggled to gain traction even as the rest of her colleagues were buoyed by anti-Trump hysteria, has parted ways with the network.

      The decision comes as much of the rest of MSNBC has been enjoying a ratings resurgence and, in some cases, dominance over Fox News.

      For the first time in 17 years, the network beat both Fox News and CNN in prime-time viewership on weeknights in May amongst the crucial 25-to-54 age demographic—a giant 118 percent leap from a year earlier.

      In the full second quarter, according to ratings released by Nielsen earlier this week, the network came in second behind Fox for total day viewers, but its growth from a year earlier outpaced both its rivals.

      Much of this growth is due to prime-time anchors like Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell, whose nightly newscasts have tapped into a potent mix of liberal anxiety and schadenfreude over the Trump presidency.

      In the second quarter, Maddow’s show won the demo in prime-time, though Fox’s Tucker Carlson had the highest number of total viewers. Van Susteren’s show, however, fell behind its rivals in the 6 p.m. hour.

            They do a very good job of just reporting the news. Not dwelling on Russia, Russia, and more Russia. They have a few opinionated shows at night but it is not 24 x 7.

            AT&T via DirectTv has added them to their lineup both on their satellite service and streaming DirectTV Now. I thought this was very interesting due to the impending takeover of Time Warner. Maybe they will boot CNN and we will be watching OAN at the airports instead. Real News instead of Fake News.

      She talked of leaving a few months ago, teaming up more often with Franklin Graham and Samaritan’s Purse endeavors. I always thought MSNBC way beneath her. During the Gulf War, she did spectacular reporting and during the OJ Trial as well. But Fox began going down the drain and she seemed less and less relevant to their dumbed-down audience. I don’t think there’s any place that isn’t way beneath her anymore. I’ll be surprised if she surfaces anywhere on TV, until OANN gets really big.

        The way for OANN to get really big is for decent journalists to help build it. None of these people are hurting for money so it would pay to buy in and drive OANN to the top especially now that FOX news has shown it is nothing but “the controlled opposition” and it is no longer even pretending to be that.

        We already know there are several million people out their who support President Trump and MAGA so now is the time to take down the corrupt MSM with some REAL competition.

      Youtuber Styxhexenhammer666 predicted this several weeks ago.

Problem is their shrinking, captive audiences don’t want to listen to these outside-their-bubble voices. He argued it will only hasten their own inevitable decline.

      So what’s happened? Megyn is tanking at NBC. Greta was at MSNBC long enough to get a cup of coffee. On “our side” the Murdoch boys are moving more to the Left.

          Tucker Carlson called Van Jones a “nice guy” last night on his show and he wasn’t being sarcastic -check it out. My God, go to Trevor Loudon’s site and vet this bff of Valerie Jarrett.

          A card-carrying communist who loved Fidel Castro and who in the 1990’s began the war on cops that have led to the slaughter of cops we have witnessed almost 20 years later, Jones also wrote an editorial before Breitbart died that the latter would get his ‘comeuppance’ for exposing black racist Shirley Sherrod.

She was fair to Trump from what I remember. she came across as a truly nice person and became friends with Franklyn Graham working with him on some of his charity projects.

    MSNBC has tried adding some more conservative voices……but, I think they are getting hate mail and boycott threats from the left over it.

    From the article linked above:

    President Trump on Thursday said he’s approved a new petroleum pipeline to Mexico as part of a broader plan to export American energy around the world.

    “It’ll go right under the wall,” Mr. Trump said of the new pipeline during a speech at the Department of Energy.

    His address coincides with the White House’s “Energy Week,” and the president used Thursday’s event to announce several new initiatives that he says are key to economic growth and kick-starting a “golden era of American energy.”

She does wonderful humanitarian work, actually travelling and learning about the problems and people first hand. Her pictures of her travels are beautiful.

    Greta was one of those rare journalists that was pretty ‘middle of the road’, i.e., fair. The reason she appeared to lean right is because common sense leans right. She was fair to liberals, often agreeing with them, and fair to conservatives, usually agreeing with them.

    I didn’t agree with her on everything…. but I know one thing. Someone with that mindset has no place on television anymore. In the past a good responsible ‘journalist’ like Greta would be able to work wherever she wanted. No longer, she’s not partisan enough.

      I doubt she had much choice, she probably thought they would let her skate by, but really every other station is even more to the left. Fox likely wanted her out.
