I like him generally and he did a good job on that issue, I do wish, however, that MSNBC would spend more time promoting Hillary's plans, ideas, agenda for us and less face time for that disgusting cretin she's running against. I'm sorry this isn't exactly on topic, but Lawrence has a tendency to nit pick the obvious sometimes.

and getting almost no coverage. Clean water is an important environmental issue (the MOST important) and journalists should be digging into this deeply. I admire Hillary and I'm voting for her, but I think a little time out from constant campaigning to focus on an issue should be taken. Did you feel that O'Donnell was nitpicking the obvious in relation to the Standing Rock protest?

he tends to cover more non-mainstream stories, that really should be mainstream... and his huge heart is in the right place.

i'm going to be paying attention to this protest. it reaches something deep inside of me, and it just HAS to succeed.
