With the staggering hypocrisy of having sold his failing TV network to a media outlet owned by an oil-producing nation, it's hard to believe this charlatan would be invited on a game show to promote anything.
Yet there was Al Jazeera Gore this week pushing global warming on Jeopardy! (video follows with partial transcript and commentary):
A Teen Jeopardy! contestant had some harsh words for unnamed recent presidents Wednesday.
Responding to host Alex Trebek’s question about what he’d “bring to the presidency that we haven’t had say in the last few decades,” Lexington, Kentucky, high school senior Barrett Block said, “A sense of competence and accountability.”
As NewsBusters previously reported, MSNBC's Chris Matthews bombed on the game show Jeopardy! three weeks ago missing questions many fifth graders would have had no problem with.
Clearly forgetting his shameful performance, the Hardball host on Monday mocked Miss USA Pageant contestants for not knowing the name of the current Vice President (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Eight days after making a fool of himself on Jeopardy!, MSNBC's Chris Matthews was back to impugning the intellectual capacity of Sarah Palin.
After playing a clip of the former Alaska governor discussing why she wanted John McCain to focus on Barack Obama’s connection to the America-hating Reverend Jeremiah Wright in the 2008 campaign, Matthews mocked Tuesday, “I think her briefing papers have the weight of a comic book” (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
As NewsBusters reported, MSNBC's Chris Matthews totally struck out on Jeopardy! Monday night after repeatedly mocking former Alaska governor Sarah Palin for how she would do if she ever went on the show.
For your entertainment pleasure, the following is a video of conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck and his sidekicks excoriating the Hardball host for his delicious bout with instant karma:
What is a ludicrous answer for $800? The response from Chris Matthews when a naive Alex Trebek asked him on Jeopardy!: “Do you approach it from the point of view of I have an opinion about the subject that’s going to be discussed today, or you have your researchers look into that subject and then form an opinion?”
Matthews, host of MSNBC’s Hardball where he consistently spews left-wing views and ridicules conservatives, replied: “Here’s how I try to do it. Ready? Fact, analysis and then opinion. That’s the best way to do it. Report the news, figure out what it means, then figure out your attitude is about it. That’s how I do the show.”
On at least four occasions, MSNBC's Chris Matthews mocked Sarah Palin for how he felt she'd do if she were ever on the hit television game show Jeopardy!.
In a delicious example of instant karma, the self-proclaimed brainiac got his chance to show America how smart he was in a special "Power Players" version of the show Monday, but came up quite short finishing dead last with the paltry sum of only $2,300 (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Does Alex Trebek owe Republicans equal time on his Jeopardy! game show? Answer: Yes, the show has become overrun by Democratic politicians and is only going to get even more politically imbalanced in the days to come.
Last week and this week, the popular game show, in which contestants are given clues and must provide the answer in the form of a question, has been presenting its annual "Teen Tournament" shows with young Americans as contestants -- and First Lady Michelle Obama presenting some of the clues. The show is being broadcast from Washington DC during the Teen Tournament.
The folks at MSNBC aren't going to be happy about this.
During Thursday's televised game show Jeopardy, none of the contestants could identify Rachel Maddow even when a picture of her was shown to them (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
It's bad enough to come in last place on any game show, but when you're one of the top personalities of a cable news channel who gets absolutely demolished by a comedian and an actress, you might want to rethink your career.
On Thursday's Jeopardy Million Dollar Celebrity Invitational, CNN's Wolf Blitzer was matched up against comedian Andy Richter and Emmy-winning actress Dana Delaney.
Embarrassingly, Blitzer actually finished Double Jeopardy with a score of -$4,600 (video embedded below the fold):
As has been documented repeatedly, celebrities just don't find much material for humor with Barack Obama. He's just so thoughtful, so articulate, so bright, so. . . Fill in the blank, as long as it's sufficiently worshipful.
With former President George W. Bush, it's just the opposite. Show biz types can't get enough of poking fun at him. This is true even at the National Geographic Bee. Yes, the National Geographic Bee. The Associated Press's story "Trebek Makes Bush Joke as Texas Teen Wins Geography Bee" details the latest:
The nation's top geography whiz breezed through questions about mountain ranges, rivers and world capitals Wednesday, but he was stumped when National Geographic Bee host Alex Trebek asked him to name one of his weaknesses.
"Um ..." said Eric Yang, 13, pausing. The Texas teen had just revealed to the "Jeopardy!" host how he crafts his own chess strategies and plays the piano.
"That's OK," Trebek replied. "You remind me of a former president, but we won't get into that."
