Chris Christie In Talks To Join CNN Or MSNBC

CNN reports:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s possible career as a sports broadcaster may not have panned out, but he might still have a shot at a television gig. Christie has had conversations with both MSNBC and CNN about possible contributor deals after his term ends, according to three sources with knowledge of the talks.

“Yes. They are talking about a possible deal,” an NBC source said. An NBC spokesperson declined to comment. CNN declined to comment. Christie is not in talks with Fox News, a separate source with knowledge of the situation said.

Christie already tried his hand at another media gig — sports radio host. Christie auditioned as the replacement for afternoon WFAN host Mike Francesa. But last month the New York Daily News reported Christie was no longer under consideration by WFAN, though Christie later said that it was he who declined the job.

CNN reports AND declines to comment?

  • No More GOP.

    I’d prefer that he disappear from public view altogether. Egad, MSNBC and CNN are truly scraping the barrel.

    • Canadian Observer

      I think dumping him into the Grand Canyon might result in his disappearing from public view, but it’s not exactly environmentally friendly.

  • DaddyRay

    He would be more suitable for the Federal Correctional Institution At Fairton Inmate Newsletter group

  • MikeBx2

    Go ahead MSNBC. Give me a reason to change the channel.

  • Lazycrockett

    Honestly I can only see him at MSNBC on Wallace or Matthews shows, he would be front and center in all of those stupid CNN Panel discussions.

  • Tomcat

    Take your act to Fox you asshole, we don’t want you on our news channels.

    • Gianni

      I should think he’d want to be on FOX.

  • Tatonka

    He’d be a shoe-in as a contestant on “The Biggest Loser.”

    • DaddyRay

      How about Dancing with the Gas Giant

      • Tomcat

        Macy day parade.

      • Tatonka

        Maybe a remake of Fantasy Island. He could play the island.

        • DaddyRay

          Or Love Boat – he could play the part of the boat

  • Tomcat

    Couldn’t get the sports talk gig I see. You are poison now Christie.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Why? I could care less what he has to say.

    I can see it now. He’ll be on a panel discussion and if someone asks him a tough question he’ll tell them to sit down and shut up.

  • PickyPecker
  • Tomcat

    What a has been. Everyone is drawing straws to see who gets stuck hiring him.

  • james1200
    • Gianni

      ‘Eloquent’ – that’s a word I’ve never before heard being used to describe Christie when he speaks, especially when he tells someone to, “Mind your own business!” and “Shut up!”

      • james1200

        Excuse me, I meant to say “Jersey eloquent”.

        • Gianni

          πŸ™‚ Now THAT I understand.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    I have to say, I saw him interviewed in relation to Harvey and other than tossing in a couple digs, he made credible intelligent comments. That of course doesn’t undue his corruptions, overall bully brand and literally putting people’s lives in danger with the bridge shutdown.

    Perhaps that was simply an issue he was well versed on because of having dealt with Sandy?

    I would probably not turn off CNN or MSNBC the first time or two. But if he turns into the Inflatable version of Jeffrey Lord, he will be quickly banned from further viewing.

  • Rex

    No. Just no.

    • Ranger One

      I think he would be good. He just has to just go after shithole.

  • CJAS

    God, I hate cable “news”.

    • james1200
      • Tomcat

        Is there some republican law that says you have to turn your TV to Fox even if you don’t watch it?

        • james1200

          Yes.

          • Tomcat

            I know there is in Tennessee businesses. They all run it ALL day.

          • james1200

            Whenever I’m at the doctor’s or at any business with a tv on, it always seems to be Wendy Williams or The View, lol.

          • Tomcat

            You are NOT in Tennessee for sure.

        • Rambie

          Law no, but many businesses that are ran/owned by GOP’ers will run it on their TVs

          • bkmn

            I avoid those places

        • netman extraordinaire

          When I was ordering cable for our office, I specifically asked for a package that did not include Fox News. My boss keeps asking me “which channel is Fox News again”?

      • Tomcat

        Come on now, House Hunters on HGTV people need to get a life.

        • Stephen Elliot Phillips

          When the gays are sick of the news they turn to hgtv

        • netman extraordinaire

          But but but, the granite! The man cave! The stainless steel! The three car garage! Christ on a cracker, all these shows are exactly the same.

      • bkmn

        Of note is the fact that most of the top ranked MSNBC shows are hosted by left leaning hosts

        • Lars Littlefield

          Who are they?

        • james1200

          Lawrence is a admitted socialist and he has the second highest rated show on cable!

      • Stephen Elliot Phillips

        I think chris hayes is so dorky, wonky cute

    • BJORN RAGNVALDR

      I cut the cable in December, funny, don’t miss is at all.

  • PickyPecker

    Please, please, please no one post the Christie ‘cameltoe’ baseball uniform picture. It’s too nice a day to have to see that again.

  • Paula

    This is the Fifth Eagle of the Apocalypse.

  • FAEN

    OMFG enough already!

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    If Lawrence and him stand side by side, they will be a human number 10

  • Kevin Perez
  • Henry Auvil

    What’s left of my brain and I are in talks about never paying attention to anything Chris Christie says or does.

  • Rex

    Just remember Chris, the camera adds 10 pounds.
    Not sure if that applies if they have to use panorama.

    • Paula

      Did they have to use 43 cameras?

      • ByronK

        IMAX.

        • Lars Littlefield

          Cheaper to use three old cinerama cameras.

          • ByronK

            Absolutely NO HD thank you very much.

    • billbear1961

      lol

    • Sporkfighter

      Do news studios generally have freight elevators?

  • ByronK

    There is absolutely no rational reason anyone needs to hear anything from the goiter on legs.

  • Paula

    Christie had to close the beaches for his day in the sun. Then there was much less chance of somebody throwing a harpoon at him or trying to push him back out to sea.

    • ByronK

      LOL. He’d be suddenly surrounded by Greenpeace volunteers trying to roll him across the sand.

    • matrem

      They sometimes blow up beached whale carcasses.

      • Paula

        There was a famous incident about blowing up a whale carcass in Oregon back in 1970.
        It was hilarious.

        • Rebecca Gardner

          It’s raining Whale!!!! Run for your lives!!! LOL

          • Oscarlating Wildely

            Hallelujah! It’s raining whale, Amen!

          • m_lp_ql_m

            Ahem, they’re called “bears” or somesuch here on JMG.

          • Todd20036

            Hallelujah! It’s raining whale! Oh Oh Oh!!

        • ByronK

          “However everyone on the scene was covered with small particles of dead whale.” LMFAO

  • Rex

    There should be some sort of rule that despised political figures have to go into hiding for at least 10 years. Or forever, forever is good too.

  • billbear1961

    Where he can yell, “Lock her up”??

    Just keep letting these deplorable shits off the hook, media BASTARDS!

  • Harveyrabbit

    They’ll have to figure out a way to get him to stop eating long enough to do full segments.

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      I feel my ateries clog by even looking at that image.

  • Lars Littlefield

    America is such a great country. Even stale grease stains can become idiotic pundits on cable news.

  • shellback

    Television? I’d say his visage is more suitable for radio.

  • Rebecca Gardner
  • WarrenHart

    I will not watch a news station that would give him a platform. Boycott!

  • Tiger Quinn

    I’ll stop watching whichever.

  • safari

    Can we just return him to the sea?

    • m_lp_ql_m

      The sea level is already rising too high.

      • Ranger One

        He will wash up, and then what will we do?

    • Reality.Bites

      The whales keep pushing him back

    • Elsewhere1010

      Did you know that in Decline the interiors of the building in the Forum were completely finished, even though no scene were filmed inside them? The Forum became a tourist attraction after filming ended, but the only time the interiors were ever filmed was for an educational film about the Roman senate made by the Encyclopedia Britannica company.

      • billbear1961

        No, I didn’t know that.

        I’m not sure how long they left the set up.

        I’m pretty sure I read they took it down pretty quickly after filming.

        I don’t remember WHY they did that.

        It’s a shame–I’m sure it would still attract visitors today!

      • Michael White

        I enjoy the older movies with real sets as CGI does not get it right. Ms. Taylor’s entry into Rome as Cleopatra . . . .

  • AtticusP

    I guess that Goodyear must be retiring their blimp fleet.

  • JCF

    DO.NOT.WANT!!!!!

  • billbear1961

    What’s the problem?

    Couldn’t they get Bannon or Gorka or some other goddamned NAZI??

  • bkmn

    I saw this morning that FuxSnooz made a public statement that they are not hiring Spicey

    • billbear1961

      Why the hell not?

      He’s certainly an accomplished, determined, and shameless liar.

      Is it that he has no record of sexually harassing colleagues?

      • Lars Littlefield

        Just need to let you know the sunshine you bring to my days.

        • billbear1961

          It’s good to see you, too, LL!

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      No, he needs to be on CNN to take Crewcut Corey’s place. He’d be more entertaining in that “he’s drunk right now, right?” sort of way.

  • That_Looks_Delicious

      Damn…he’s tipping over the whole Enterprise…or he’s overpowering the ship’s artificial gravity.

        Pence is a little bitch, isn’t he! Fluffer, even for the fat loser.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      I that little marco on the left?
      BTW that pic is just WRONG.
      Pence is laying hands on crusty’s FUPA
      fat upper penile area

      • Oscarlating Wildely

        Totally wrong and completely unacceptable.

        That’s his fat lower penile area. There’s such a plethora of fat areas that they blend but let’s keep our anatomy straight, shall we?

      That reminds me of the glowing orb thingy in Saudi Arabia. Oh, and EEEW!

      • Claude Jacques Bonhomme

        Except that orb does not even remotely glow.

  • Adam King

    Oh fuck no. Nobody cares what this miserable failure of a sociopath thinks about anything.

  • Hank

    CNN will take him sooner than MSNBC…. I hope!!!

  • carrot festival

    Big Time Wrestling can always use a new ring clown.

    • billbear1961

      Since most are now employed in the GOP Congress, and the Dump regime.

  • JWC

    If either CNN or MSNBC has a brain they will NOT hire him Oh I guess he will be working with CNN

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      somebody interviewed him on msnbc. Hayes, maybe? Crusty was actually pleasant. Now I know why. It was a job interview

      • JWC

        pleasantly stupid

  • Reality.Bites

    He’s also in negotiations with MTV to be the new set for a reboot of Jersey Shore.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      maybe he can do guest spots on housewives of new jersey

    • Oscarlating Wildely

      I’d hope not. Every time he stands at the shore, the tide gets whacked and the moon gets pissed.

      • bambinoitaliano

        Why bother going to the beach when he is around. Better off sitting under a lamp.

  • m_lp_ql_m

    Who knew MSM is now the next career move for those deplorables who can’t hack it in the government anymore.

  • Lakeview Bob

    Oh please not MSNBC. I cannot stand to look at this man.

  • The_Wretched

    MSNBC – working hard to ensure noone watches us and out talent leaves.

  • William

    Is there a parking lot in need of a speed bump?

  • And people sometimes wonder why I don’t have cable any more.

  • Rocco

    Please God neither one! Let Faux News have him!!

    • grada3784

      I suspect he’s below even Fox standards.

  • Westcoast88

    One more reason to avoid cable news.

  • RJ Bone

    No. No. No. No.

    Stop letting these assholes have a platform, cable news. You don’t have to appeal to their supporters in this country.

  • I thought it was Fox that hired all the Republican has-beens.

  • Mike

    MSNBC is overstocked with right wing scum. Right wing scum belongs on CNN.

  • stanhope

    Wherever this fat bitch lands is the network I no longer watch. Jeff Bezos, it is time to create a news network! CNN has been steadily going to hell (oh how I miss Ted Turner) and msnbc is only slightly better. Katy Turr with a show? Really..that’s the best you can find? Donna Lemon gives me hives.

  • Gerry Fisher

    PLEASE stop rewarding the corrupt and incompetent. Jeez!

  • Eli Bradley

    I doubt it would be MSNBC, after Steve Kornacki and Bridgegate.

  • Nowhereman

    Please–not MSNBC.

  • leastyebejudged

    Not getting why news organizations would harm their credibility this way, but this seems to be quite the trend !

  • dagobarbz, fine Italian shoes

    Are these stations deliberately trying to sabotage their own success?
    CNN and MSNBC have been hiring Fox News’ droppings. Just what we need, the Great White Whale beached on a progressive (ish) channel.
    I wouldn’t watch him with your eyes…

  • Ann Kah

    No, please don’t sully MSNBC with this bozo.
