MSNBC “Up With Chris Hayes” Host Chris Hayes doesn’t spare a chance to A) remind people he has a staff and B) praise them. Over the weekend, he shouted from the rooftops, “I say this a lot but the @upwithchris staff is so so good and works very very hard.”
Before praising his staff, Hayes, while at The Nation, spent a good deal of time reminding people he is a writer. We showcased that in our “I’m a writer Goddammit!” series.
Hayes works hard to make sure that everyone knows that he has people working beneath him, … a fairly bold move considering that he’s the new kid on the block whose show, as these things go on cable television, could get cancelled any week now (he might want to check in with former MSNBCer David Shuster and CNN alum Eliot Spitzer).
If you don’t really believe Hayes has a staff…well, does anyone really believe he doesn’t have a staff at this point?
BTW – my staff has absolutely worked their asses off and have done an incredible job. Seriously, they have the much much harder job.
