Mediaite‘s Tommy Christopher to ‘MSNBS’s’ Chris Hayes: Will You Marry Me?

It’s gotten to the point where you have to wonder if Mediaite‘s White House Correspondent Tommy Christopher watches MSNBC’s Chris Hayes with a box of wet naps on standby.

This is moving beyond bromance and we don’t think it’s a stretch to think a marriage proposal may be in order. Or, if the network is looking for a devoted publicist for the show, they should look no further than Christopher, who posted a sticky sweet writeup last night on an Entertainment Weekly profile of MSNBC’s Up with Hayes. Christopher mistakenly refers to the show as “MSNBS‘s Up with Chris Hayes” — was he calling the network bulls–t? Was he all blinded with love that he forgot the name of the network? In the post, Christopher pretends to bemoan the “cool” factor Up has lost with its increase in popularity.

Christopher writes, “The magazine has a weekly circulation of around 1.8 million, [most] of which are being read by people who probably don’t watch Up, but might just give it a try now. The horror. Next thing you know, we’ll be watching a Very Special Up Wedding episode.”

Oh, Tommy!

Does Mediaite have an editor these days? More absurd gushing from Christopher’s post…

“As if things weren’t bad enough, Hayes is also going to be plastered in the November issue of GQ, another collection of pieces of paper (which is not actually a ‘quarterly’ anymore), in a feature by the excellent Reid Cherlin, who calls Hayes ‘The Liberal Host Even Conservatives Watch.’”


Christopher penned an eight-page profile of Up last year with the same type of pseudo criticism. (“True to its title, [the show] forces a growing number of people to get Up With Chris Hayes.”)

We reached out to Christopher for comment.
