For The Daily Beast: A Boston Cop Shooting and Our Post-Truth Era

For The Daily Beast, Mike weighs in on the tragic shooting of a decorated Boston Police Department (Official) officer this weekend by a career criminal and how the gunfight is viewed by bystanders, despite the camera that captured it all. “The truth today is that one young police officer, brave and without fear, fights for his life in a hospital while another man, a wrecking crew all by himself, is dead.”

On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle and the team discuss Hillary Clinton-related criticisms and especially concerns over her use of a personal email account while Secretary of State. "You get the sense that Hillary Clinton's biggest problem is the weight of 30 years of what are supposed to be explanations but sound like excuses. People are going to be thinking, when she does run for President, enough is enough," says Mike. Watch the conversation only on msnbc.

In light of the Republican’s recent, unexpected rejection of short-term funding for the Department of Homeland Security, take a look back at Thursday's discussion between Mike Barnicle and Congressman Mark Sanford (R-SC) about the House Republicans’ threat to shut down the department over immigration issues, which would force its most visible employees—TSA agents—to work for deferred pay. "How could you sit there in the Capitol, getting paid for working a two or three-day workweek...? How in good conscience could you do that?," Mike asks Rep. Sanford. Watch his response on msnbc’s Morning Joe.

On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle and the team talk about Hillary Clinton's private email problem and the question of whether foreign money was funneled to her Clinton Foundation while she was serving as Secretary of State. Says Mike, the public is less interest in the fact that the emails were private than they are in following the money trail. Hear the discussion here on msnbc.

From the battle to fund the Department of Homeland Security to Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech and the far-right future of the Republican party, Mike Barnicle tries to make sense of the inner turmoil swarming around Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH). “Boehner isn’t crazy. He’s just scared and powerless. He’s frightened [House Republicans] will lead a charge on his job, and if he had the clout to stop them—unlikely—he’s either afraid to use it or doesn’t know how,” says Mike. Read Mike’s column on The Daily Beast.
The House speaker is too busy fending off the crazies who would grab his job and coming up with swell ideas like inviting over Netanyahu to think about the latest Twitter sensation.

On Morning Joe, Mike Barnicle talks with former U.S. Navy SEAL sniper Kevin "Dauber" Lacz, friend of the late Chris Kyle, author of 'American Sniper' and the subject of of the film of the same name. Lacz worked with Bradley Cooper, who starred as Kyle, and director Clint Eastwood on the film version of Kyle's story. "In the movie, one scene stands out to me," says Mike. "Clearly Chris Kyle, as played by Bradley Cooper, didn't want his son to ever have to do what he had to do. Did it hit you at all?," asks Mike. Listen to Lacz share his personal experience on msnbc.

The Massachusetts native has written more than 4,000 columns collectively for The Boston Globe, Boston Herald, and New York Daily News, where he rose to prominence with his hard-hitting and often heart-wrenching must-read columns that closely followed the triumphs, travails and ambitions of Boston’s working and middle classes. Barnicle’s articles and commentary have also been published in Time magazine, Newsweek/The Daily BeastThe Huffington Post, ESPN The Magazine, Grantland and Esquire, among others.

Barnicle lends his unique perspective and vivid presence to the screen, page and airwaves. His award-winning television documentaries include Armed and Dangerous, which examined the proliferation of guns in the U.S., and Justice on Trial, an exposé on the Massachusetts judicial system.
