Martin Bashir’s career at MSNBC hadn’t even been over a few hours before Mia Farrow suggested that her son be chosen as his successor.

Greta Van Susteren agreed with Farrow, though we’re not sure how much pull the opinion of a Fox News personality has with MSNBC’s execs:

  • Christy Scott

    Who’s Ronan Farrow?

    • Darrs Saulzberg

      he’s like Anderson Cooper another liberal rich brat with a flousy mom,but gayer and hates america

    • Zathras11 @B5

      A quick search tells me that he/she is the bisexual son/daughter of Mia Farrow and EITHER Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra. I guess even Mia doesn’t know. My guess is that he is a liberal like his mom. I’m also rethinking Greta (who appeared to have changed).

      • Chase Crosby

        I hope Greta said that kinda mockingly. Knowing that Fox will continue to destroy their ratings even with that replacement.

        • either or

          Youkec. ow that fox is the only channel aka Republican channel channel with the vast has ority of it already and who does not work because they are over 65 and they are theIr key demographic. if you are watching that time slot, that means you are not working or are a taker versus a maker. seniors cannot use DVRs or other technology that younger people use that do not show proper ratings either. If you want to choose into the channel of hate, you have people watching in the middle of the day. Msnbc is progressive and has it’s own propaganda. you should really ask yourself if having high ratings in the middle of a work day is a good thing or a bad reflection on your audience.

      • John Reece

        I think Greta was being facetious.

      • ozconservative

        So she wants “Rosemarys Baby”????

      • 3dogs58

        He also doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving because genocide. Nuf said.

    • gman213

      He is a spoiled rich kid whose mother is a freaking moron.

  • Tugger – ✓unamused

    The real question is where does Martin Bashir go…I think he should take over for Jay Carney.

    • Boon Companion

      Bashir is cleaning toilets for ESPN Sports. It’s a hobby of his. He’s been doing it for years.

      • I am not MetaData

        With his tongue…

        • Axelgreaser

          Obviously! :)))

        • san rafael blue

          Miley Cyrus is taking notes about that tongue work-out.

        • Boon Companion


      • TheOriginalDonald

        The MOthership wants NO part of Bashir

    • rssllue

      Hopefully he will go to some deprogramming site so they can ween him off of the Kool-Aid. It might take awhile with as high a tolerance he has built up over the years.

    • Ed McDowell

      Al Jazeera America ya think?

    • TheOriginalDonald

      To Deep Space Nine to work with his brother Julian

  • Michael

    Oh great, more nepotism.

    • Zane Henry

      Maybe Ronan and Mika could host the “Our Parents Got Us These Jobs Hour”.

  • Fairfax51

    Sorry Mia, never heard of him & know nothing about him…but if his dad is Woody Allen he will do well on MSNBC.

    • Zane Henry

      There’s nobody with eyes that couldn’t see Sinatra in Ronan Farrow’s face.

      • Fairfax51

        Like I said…don’t know him…don’t know who he is except Mia’s son.

        • Zane Henry

          I don’t think anyone knew who he was until about 3 weeks ago. You’re not behind some curve or anything. Just another talking head who happens to be fame-adjacent.

          • san rafael blue

            Many of you young folks (under 40) have never heard of Mia Farrow who used to act on a night time soap opera called Peyton Place, later married romantic crooner Frank Sinatra who was about 53 to Mia’s 23 (?), Mia later starred in the classic horror movie Rosemary’s Baby, about a child sired by Satan. After their divorce, Mia ‘hooked up’ with Woody Allen for a few years. She adopted a buncha kids, like Angelina Jolie. She and Woody had one child together Satchell, who later changed his name to Ronan. Ronan is like Sean Lennon, a cloistered, complete Mama’s Boy. Ronan is said to be a smart boy.

      • Part138

        Really? He looks similar to Frank, but I think he looks more like Mia overall.

  • adam

    cher all the way

  • Maxx

    They’ll need something that will at least duplicate Bashir’s ratings.

    I nominate a test pattern.

    • Axelgreaser


    • DavidKramer

      They could just have Lock Up as their 24/7 show, it gets higher ratings then their “news shows”.

  • RedSoloCup

    Replace Farty Marty with this. Guaranteed to get more ratings!

  • CitizenEgg

    Ahhh Mom….

  • Republicanvet

    I never got the sense that Ronan was a raving nutball.

    • H50 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      Look up some of the old threads on his tweets. Hes his mothers son.

      • Axelgreaser

        Just as nutz. Lately the discussion seems to be his sexuality. I’m not sure if he’s decided on his own outcome yet, but the left and Obama has made being gay so fashionable you almost feel obligated. (Not)

  • Fuck all the things

    Static would be a better replacement.

  • Axelgreaser

    I’D SOONER SEE WOODY ALLEN IN THE SLOT. Or better yet, running old Woody Allen & Mia Farrow films including their joint masterpiece, imo, BROADWAY DANNY ROSE which features one of the most hilarious sight gags in film history in which the two are tied up together by gangsters and their ensuing escape using body wriggles and their usable, exposed appendages. Or a nightly segment of dramatic readings from Mia Farrow’s gulper, WHAT FALLS AWAY, perhaps read by both Farrow and Allen, ensemble. Ronan Farrow is a committed progressive liberal as is his mother but even so, nothing could be as awful as Bashir and his scatological tirade regarding Mrs. Palin (who should sue). Does Farrow worry that most of America looks upon the talking heads on MSNBC as complete buffoon’s? Or does the miniscule following at that Obama infomercial attract as a training ground for the next step up from the pavement, NBC?

    • Spinmamma

      You have an evil, creative mind to come up with such horrible methods of torture.

      • Axelgreaser


  • rssllue

    Funny how Mia goes right to his replacement (side note: it is too bad nepotism seems to be a big problem in her family) without discussing the reason he resigned in the first place. I wonder if she deliberately glossed over his abhorrent behavior or if her blinders are working just a bit too well.

  • littleones

    You mean Frank’s kid?

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Right now, The Chairman is rolling in his grave just thinking about it… Jawamax 8<{D}

  • PeterP

    The Ronan Farrow who said Americans who were celebrating Thanksgiving were actually celebrating Indian genocide? That Ronan Farrow?

    • Axelgreaser

      ROFLMAO! Yes, that Ronan Farrow. So perfect for MSNBC and an endorsement from old liberal Greta should seal the deal.

  • PeterP

    Soon Yi’s step-mother-sister?

  • nc ✓s & balances

    The “eyes” have it.

  • me

    Question 1) Didn’t this Mia chick marry her step dad? Or something like that?

    Question 2) Who the heck is Ronan Farrow? And who cares who fills that time slot. They’d have more viewers if they put up those old color bars when TV stations used to sign off at night. Remember those?

    • TracyJean

      No, actually Mia’s daughter married Woody Allen, who was involved with Mia for years (and is Ronan’s supposed father – there was a big deal a few weeks back about Frank Sinatra being Ronan’s real father)

      • me

        Thanks, I knew it was something like that.

    • Axelgreaser

      :)))) No, Woody Allen married Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter (w/Andre Previn) Soon Yi Previn (which is gross). At least Farrow and Allen never shared a living space, but were ‘lovers’ and a (magnificent) film team. Soon Yi has since divorced the septuagenarian (or Octo) and moved on. Farrow found nude photos of Soon Yi in either hers or Allen’s apartment and a nasty divorce ensured. And consequently Farrows revenge opus, ‘What Falls Away.’ There is speculation Ronan is Frank Sinatra’s son as Farrow and Sinatra carried on their relationship after divorce (allegedly).

      • TracyJean

        Actually, as far as I can tell online, Soon-Yi and Woody are still married.

        • Axelgreaser

          Oh…well perhaps they were separated at one point. Thnx for the correction :)

          • me

            Thanks for the info.

        • TocksNedlog

          That’s because they are.

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      You mean a Test Pattern… That would DEFINITELY garner better ratings! Jawamax 8<{D}

  • LinTaylor ✓vitrified

    Sure, feed the spoiled little celeb-prince into the meat grinder. Just give me some time to make some popcorn.

  • Kristy Patullo

    Oh, Greta. Well, couldn’t be worse than Bashir.

  • Hi This Is My Username

    Maybe Greta wants to further see MSNBC crumble or let another celeb make an ass of them self?

  • NixTyranny

    Please have MSNBC lure Beckel off The Five.

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      A Three-fer trade…PMSDNBC gets Beckel, Colmes, and Juan Williams, and Fox News gets SANITY! Just sayin… Jawamax 8<{D}

  • whateverdear

    When Ronan knows who his father is, he can host what he wants.

  • Mary

    I vote for Sheppard Smith

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      I respect your idea, Mary, but I don’t think Sheppo would want to work there…. You know, the “Log Cabin Republicans” thing…. Jawamax 8<{D}

  • FaithColeridge33

    I vote for Mia herself. The more you keep these crazies talking the more they expose themselves.

    • Howard Roark

      How about Cher? The crazy is strong in her.

  • lainer51

    Donna Brazile – or is she a Bashir clone?

    • Howard Roark

      She’s too busy talking to her insurance company trying to figure out why her premiums went up. :)

  • Tim Bucktoo

    I vote Ron Burgundy

  • RDuke

    I’d leave the decision up to MSNBC’s viewer.

  • angeleyez

    Does Obama’s mother remind you of the movie “Rosemary’s Baby” ?

  • Terry_Jim

    @AdamBaldwin had a better idea for MSNBC–

    “So, @BashirLive resigns. MSNBC should offer @BillWhittle a multi-year/multi-million dollar on-air contract to turn its outfit around.”

    • Chevypowered


    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Never heard of…BIll Who? Jawamax 8<{D}

      • Jay Stevens

        You’re serious?

        Look up his stuff. Well worth it.

      • Terry_Jim

        @BillWhittle ‘s the opposite of MSNBC’s typical failures;
        he’s smart, patriotic , and a skilled writer and communicator. Read ‘Shards’… and follow him and @AdamBaldwin on the Twitter also.

  • cmazzJK

    No Bill Ayers??

    • John Smith

      Or maybe Bill Maher, since they pack lots of turds and foaming at the mouth radicals and haters.

      • Scot Harvath

        Billy has already his show, but why not Michael Moore? He matches all criteria:
        – total nutjob
        – every sentence his sputters is a lie
        – filthy rich communist

      • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

        I suggest Jon Stewart or Stephen Colbert… If not Maher, someone who WON’T be taken too seriously XD Jawamax 8<{D}

    • mzk1_1

      They already have one terrorist, Al Sharpton. He would fit right in. Mabe get Bill Clinton, so they can fill out their roster of violent criminals.

  • san rafael blue

    Wouldn’t it be HYSTERICAL if they offered that show to Sarah Palin and she accepted? Bashir would probably go BATTY. He would go to Disneyland (in disquise), sit in one of those Twirling Teacup rides and keep going round and round and round till they cut the power off.

    • blueniner

      Poetic Justice…LOL ..Sarah has bigger fish to fry, as of now she is packin them in on her Book Tour!

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      Good suggestion, and yes, poetic Justice! But you forgot two points:
      1)Sarah would probably rather work at Fox News, where the Conservative “vibe” wouldn’t feel threatening to her, and
      2)PMSDNBC Hiring a Conservative? Former Conservative Scarboro had to make a left-ward 180 to get a job with them! Do you really believe Sarah would sell out her Beliefs for a job? Just sayin… Jawamax 8<{D}

    • mzk1_1

      Well, Ann Coulter used to work for them.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    Wait a second here! If PMSDNBC is gonna replace Marty Basher, they should find candidates with the following qualifications:
    +A vast knowledge of World events;
    +A frothing hatred for (us) Conservatives;
    +A stone-faced personality; and,
    +A cult-like affection for Liberals and leftists (the further left, the better.)
    Just sayin’….. Jawamax 8<{D}

    • Howard Roark

      Harry Reid already has a job

  • ClarkFL

    Whatever. Its MSNBC. Its not like they won’t hire some far-left whack job straight out of the Karl Marx school for d*ckheads. If they actually put someone in at 4 pm that is even slightly to the right of Che Guevara i’d probably be in shock.
