A Hugh Hewitt Prediction

MSNBC shamed by viewers for failing to punish Hugh Hewitt over unethical favors from Scott Pruitt

After it was revealed that MSNBC’s Hugh Hewitt had gotten Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt to do him favors even as Hewitt was praising Pruitt on his show, many viewers demanded that the network fire the conservative talk show host.

However, MSNBC on Wednesday said that it had issued a “verbal warning” to Hewitt about not disclosing his lobbying of Trump administration officials for favors even as he gushed about their performances on air.

This did not sit well with many MSNBC viewers, who took to Twitter to bash the network for its decision to give Hewitt a slap on the wrist...
If I had the kind of money that MSNBC throws at America's Most Famous Cyborg Sent From The Future To Destroy America with which to bet, after covering the mortgage, fixing the car, fixing the bathroom, taking my wife on a proper vacation, funding the family's heath insurances for the next five years, bankrolling a family reunion, bankrolling a Midwest Liberal blogger/podcaster meetup, and buying a Route 66 heritage motel and turning into a writer's colony, I would bet a fair chunk of the remainder on the following scenario:
  1. Mr. Hewitt will be given the industry-standard for flagrant Conservative media personality corruption (non-sexual predator category): 30 days on the bench, or "One Gingrich"

  2. MSNBC will find some currently discredited, out-of-the-limelight Conservative clown in need of some reputation rehabilitation and give them Mr. Hewitt's slot during his absence.  Even Money:  Ben Domenech, working title "How to Win Friends and Influence People by Marrying the Commandant's Daughter"3-to-1:  Andrew Sullivan, working title "Ten Thing  Hate About Hillary"Long Shot:  Kevin Williamson, working title "Hangin' with Kevin Williamson".

  3. During his downtime, network image consultants will coach the mayor of of Uncanny Valley, USA --
    Uncanny Valley -- used in reference to the phenomenon whereby a computer-generated figure or humanoid robot bearing a near-identical resemblance to a human being arouses a sense of unease or revulsion in the person viewing it.
    -- in how to more effectively mimic human speech patterns and facial expression.

  4. The network will  book Mr. Hewitt onto a couple of panels -- probably Hardball (MSNBC) and Meet the Press (NBC) -- to gin up some momentum for him during the run-up to his Triumphant Return to Comcast's good graces.

  5. His Triumphant Return!
And somewhere Melissa Harris-Perry will have a glass of Malbec and laugh and laugh and laugh.

Behold, a Tip Jar!

So I wonder: was the "verbal warning" typed into the keypad under the access panel between his shoulder blades, or have they upgraded his speech recognition software enough for occasional reliable speech input?

They could have given Hewitt an oral warning and them suspend him for sex in the work place.
As a NYT story would come out that Robots like Hugh are incapable of sex. Unlike the inflatable dolls made in the present specifically for sex. They will point out Hugh as a robot from the future sent back in time to destroy us all is not programmed for sex. Should not receive any admonishment(s).

I recall the Olbermann was suspended for donating to a democratic congressman.

Even the 3 toed sloth knows the FOX is not a news organization. So when hannity got into the same sort of trouble. Well, it wasn't trouble at all for the FOX.
Seriously sad in this is the scum level the EPA Pruitt pals around.

How this all leads me into the Putin Oligarch control of everything. How the loudest mouths to claim freedom. Are the ones that are so greedy and corrupt strive to sell it. And cheap to.

It is not about a news network truing to provide variety (no matter how extreme) to keep from being in a FOX bubble. The robot provides something to MSNBC that I just cannot get a clear view of, to put my finger on it.

We may find out later Hewitt paid money to Cohen through his LLC . To have his robotic nuts tightened by the FIXER.

Hugh is just another white supremacist who so badly want to be important/ superior. disregarding how below average he is.

Hewitt and Pruitt and Hewitt and Pruitt and Hiatt told Hewitt not to write about Pruitt in his newspaper thingie...
Such a harsh punishment, however will Hewitt find the will to carry on now? Someone get him his oil can full of money-scented essential oil before he rusts into a pile of toxic dust...
