  1. Interesting that Steve Kornacki will be working the Pope’s visit and is named and not just one of the “other NBC News journalists”

  2. This will be a nice change from MSNBC’s Headline News format which is painfully boring.

  3. “This will be a nice change from MSNBC’s Headline News format which is painfully boring.”

    ^^ All Headline News formats are painfully boring. That’s why they are the last resort of cable news nets.

  4. Kate Snow needs to anchor MSNBC late nights because she puts me right to sleep.
