When news breaks on a mid-August Saturday, cable news bookers have to get creative on who they can get on their show. Take for example today’s awful civil and deadly unrest in Charlottesville and MSNBC’s curious booking of movie director and actor Rob Reiner.
Reiner is an entertainer at heart — and has long been a loud voice of progressive activism — so many viewers of MSNBC were likely delighted to hear what he had to say to host Joy Reid. Reiner went OFF, stating that “this man has been stoking racism for many, many years” before citing Trumps very active role in the birther movement roughly 5 or 6 years ago.
