No wonder MSNBC’s ratings are horrible. Its producers obviously do a very poor job vetting “experts” and its hosts do a very poor job actually listening to the poorly-vetted “experts.”
MSNBC host Krystal Ball gazed into the camera to tell the world she had someone in the American embassy and he told Ball he saw “a projectile flying through the sky and it would appear the plane was shot down by a blast of wind from Howard Stern’s ass.”

Ball, without missing a beat, responded, “so it would appear the plane was shot down, can you tell us anything more from your military training, of what sort of missile system, uh, that may have been coming from?”
“You’re a dumb ass, aren’t ya,” the “expert” responded.
After a long pause, Ball said, “I’m sorry sir?” apparently still not realizing what was going on.
She then cut to a commercial.
