"Let Me Just Interrupt You, Congressman," MSNBC Anchor Says, Before Going to Breaking News on Justin Bieber

By Dustin Rowles | Videos | January 24, 2014 | Comments ()


It’s not like MSNBC anchor Andrea Martin was talking to Congresswoman Jane Harman about anything important before she cut her off to go to OMG Bieber. They were only talking about the NSA, wiretapping, and the security of our federal government. But, you know, OMG Bieber!

To be fair, I’m sure this wasn’t Andrea Martin’s decision, and that she was just as disgusted with the interruption as Harman and everyone with three brain cells at home was. It’s just another instance where the news has been co-opted by pop culture, like this Upworthy headline that CNN ran yesterday.


Interestingly, it was only seven years ago that a MSNBC anchor refused to lead with a Paris Hilton story, choosing instead to cover news.

    How did we let it come to this? Beiber is fucking Canadian for Cocks sake! Why is he news in the U.S.? Does Canada have breaking news reports on Miley Cyrus? 14 year old girls aren't watching MSNBC, CNN, or FOX (actually no one under 68 watches FOX) so who is the audience for this news story?

    This is why we can't have nice things, America.

  • I like Mika, she seems like she's a decent person. 'Morning Joe' is the only thing I ever really watch on MSNBC. Mostly because it's the only thing they air that doesn't make me want to hurl things at the TV screen.

  • Wigamer

    She's mostly OK, but when she starts doing her nagging food police BS, it's hard to take. She has very disordered thinking about food.

  • SallyFM

    Isn't that Andrea Mitchell and not Martin?

  • Sara_Tonin00

    bwahahaha. Yes.

  • Wigamer

    YES. Andrea Martin was on SCTV.

  • If I were the interviewee I'd throw my hands up in the air, declare I'm done and walk the fuck out. Because, damn. Damn.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    ESPECIALLY Andrea Mitchell. I don't think they told her what they were cutting to.

  • Joe Grunenwald

    She really does just sound disgusted.

  • Imma let ya finish, congressman, but Justin Beiber is the worst teenager of all time. OF ALL TIME!

  • CNN is claiming their Twitter was hacked. I'm not finding that Upworthy headline anymore, but the hacking claim showed a different set of tweets. I'm leaning toward some new hire for social media needs a new job today.

    You're assuming the Congress woman had something important to say...

    *Which is not guaranteed especially when you consider how dysfunctional Congress is. Not knowing the context of the interview in the clip the Bieber breakaway may have been worth it.

    Nice to see Vanilla Ice still has the power to command a nation's attention.

    "Congresswoman, let me interrupt you so that we can stop, collaborate, and listen to this breaking news...."
