  1. She recovered quite nicely but to follow that story with one about a missing disabled girl? Yikes.

    Reminds me of that famous (or infamous) Casey Kasem tape and a dead dog dedication (google it for the NSFW details).

  2. I’ve gotta agree with Kasem. You don’t play a flippin’ up-tempo song before a dedication to a dead dog!

  3. Being a citizen of the “wierd ones”, I found this whole thing rather enjoyable. Hey, if the staff blows one, you recover and move on.
    Besides, mistakes often show us how skillful Chris is at being human, but still in control. Additionally, I really don’t think that the subject was so significant that we were’t far more interested in what Chris’s thinking process was than some joke of a “toy” that we would prefer to not know anything about. Just saying……..

  4. You’re right fred, and that’s why we enjoy these Hazards so much.

  5. I should qualify the above with the fact that if Chris said that the sky was pink, I would probably have to go look for myself. My initial tendency would be to believe her, being weird and all. 🙂

    Yeah, but who thought it was a good idea to follow a snuggies story with one about a probably murdered disabled child?

    I used to work on a newspaper copy desk and we were always told to check accompanying stories/photos and ads around articles we were editing or writing heads for. You didn’t want to write a light-hearted headline next to some horrible story about a dead child or family killed in a car accident.

  7. Steve, excellent point, though, I prefer to look at Chris as the master of multi-tasking. We just have to follow as she undos the warps of her staff.
    My mother lectured me CONSTANTLY, in dealing with others, “patience is a virtue”.

  8. Fredorth, I find it odd that you are a registered Republican but mostly vote for democrats. I thought everybody like that switched their registration in 2008.

  9. Josh, As I have said before, I like to treat everyone as an individual and try, hard, not to classify. When I first registered, I went Republican because both of my parents were a little to the right of Taft. Both of my brothers went Democratic and I just felt that my heritage deserved some reverence. My voting pattern has been very independent, though, it is true, I have been more Democratic as of late. To me, this issue is mute. The point is that I DO vote.

  10. Cool. I like independent thinkers.

  11. Josh, Oh heck, I should stay within the parameters of this topic. On Chris Jansing, I am really never independent. Just an old fool. 🙂

    Stevemg: That’s what I thought too! PONDEROUS! BLEEPING PONDEROUS!

  13. It looks to me like the mistake was the story at which the prompter was cued. The graphic that popped up originally was about the story at the end and nothing was ready for the story that was on the prompter. And the fact that the prompter skipped ahead shows that the producer was trying to fix everything by having it to go the story that was supposed to be done at that time. I don’t think MSNBC intended to put these two stories in that order.

  14. I’ve gone over the video several times (clarity is better than I get on my ten year old 42″ JVC. Sound is superior as well), and I keep coming to the conclusion that it was intentional.
    Chris is on the Last Word, looking perfect and providing graceful opinion (very pragmatic). She is always thinking clearly and speaks in a precise fashion. She and Lawrence work very well together.
