11 Dec 2011: Up with Chris Hayes Goes Down
Posted by: Frank Moraes
Today is the beginning of the end for Up with Chris Hayes. I had wondered recently how long the new show would manage to continue to be unapologetically liberal. This morning, for the first time in its young history (as far as I know), it had two conservative panelists—who just happened to get far more talking time than their liberal peers. Yes, the conservatives (Elise Jordan and Reihan Salam) are not of the wacky persuasion. But I fear that is just a matter of time. Up with Chris Hayes in 2014 might well have a panel of Charles Krauthammer, George Will, David Brooks, and Leslie Sanchez. Sanchez is the liberal.
