MSNBC’s Tamron Hall got into a feisty exchange with Washington Examiner reporter Tim Carney, which resulted in Hall kicking him off her show.

Tamron Hall just might be the next Rachel.  

From the comment section from Kysen.  

even the very end of the show was funny. She was very kindly thanking her other guest while they showed a split screen between him and the loudmouth....the loudmouth was still yappin' but his mike was cut so he just looked all the more the fool.
Again from David54 in the comment section:
What happened earlier in the program was that she had Carney on with AB Stoddard and he started criticizing the media for hyping the "silly" war on women. etc.
Tamron schooled him then about the fact that a "war on women" wasn't a silly subject and either the war existed or it didn't but in either case it wasn't a silly subject.
So that got her going, and I think it got the ire up in the redhead Carney.
MSNBC reporter Tamron Hall went off on a Washington Examiner reporter and cut off his microphone after the two got into an argument about Mitt Romney's response to a much-discussed Washington Post article about Romney's alleged bullying incidents when he was a young man.

The Washington Examiner reporter, Tim Carney, accused the anchor of playing the old "media trick" of hyping a story and "justifying second-day coverage" by claiming that people are still talking about it.

"Trying to make an issue out of someone bullying someone nearly 50 years ago is ridiculous," Carney said. "It's a big reason why most of America does not like or trust the mainstream media."

"You do not have to answer a single question I ask you," Hall responded. "And you didn't have to accept the invitation to come on. You knew what we were going to be discussing."

As Carney tried to talk over her, Hall said, "Hang on, you're kind of in my house here. The story is out there. You're right, I'm not saying we should belabor what happened 50 years ago. We're talking about the response by the campaign and by the governor."

The story in question was a big Washington Post feature in which several of Romney's former prep school classmates recalled an incident when Romney picked on a student who was already teased for his "nonconformity and presumed homosexulality." Romney reportedly held the student, John Lauber, down and cut his hair after the alleged victim returned from spring break with long locks of bleached blonde hair.

Romney said that he did not remember the incident, but he apologized for it nonetheless.

"[The story] exposes a bigger problem," Hall said on air. "Many voters are still trying to figure out exactly who he is."

Carney said that although he thought it was a good article, the Romney campaign should push it aside and focus on other, more important issues, which he felt would be "the appropriate reaction."

"You are bringing up a meta story," Carney said. "What is Romney's response to this other non-story. I'm trying to go meta meta on you and say -"

"You're actually irritating me right now, I'm going to be honest with you," Hall said.

"I am done," she added, before cutting off his audio and continuing to discuss the issue with MSNBC's other guest, Democratic strategist Jimmy Williams.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
