    Joe you did fairly well. It was great that you brought up Colin Powell but when Kornacki accused you of saying that you were using “the other guy did it too” excuse you should have made it crystal clear that Hillary did not do what Powell did – she turned over 30,000 + official emails. Powell destroyed his. There is no equivalence here at all.

    All those media fools morphing their excuses for going after Hillary – laws broken? No? How about security? Oh yeah that applies to Powell, too, and then there is Wikileaks. OK the public and historians need to know (David Corn’s latest excuse as an historian, don’t cha know) so let’s go with she got to decide what to hand over so she may be, probably is, hiding something. Yeah, that’s the ticket. Of course if you accept that reasoning then Powell is without doubt hiding everything. But never mind. Old news. Plus he is trustworthyso he wouldn’t lie or coverup anything (except for burying the My Lai massacre and lying to the Iran Contra investigation. But hey he is a saint…)

    The lack of concern, let alone outrage at Powell’s destroying his official email should be the issue all democrats raise. The MSM needs to pay a price for their blatant double standard not to mention their sloppy reporting.

    Joe Conason needs to be invited frequently to MSNBC,

    To me,Kornacki was really animated and heated up. No surprise, though, because he was engaged in his usual antics of waving his hands in all directions, speaking in rapid fire style in a way that the listener might miss a syllable or two, and generally coming off as a semi-hysterical doofus. Two others share his style: Hayes and Maddow, except that both of them too often raise their voices up to soprano level, become increasingly animated in the process, each producing the same semi- hysterical doofus image. There must be more talent out there for recruitment who,like Ari Melber are calm, intelligent and very articulate. His is a delightful contrast: He needs his own prime time show.
