For those who agree with the legendary Tip O'Neill who said, "All politics is local," - Mike Barnicle's thoughtful commentary will provide an informative and entertaining look at how politics, the economic environment and social change affect our lives. Barnicle has a knack for looking at today's news and offering up a point of view that considers the impact on workers, families, children and society. Whether looking at serious news from Congress and the Obama Administration or the less serious absurdities of everyday life, Barnicle's funny, at times irreverent, but always timely blend of humor and content make him a crowd-pleaser.
Known for his straight-talking style, Mike Barnicle rouses audiences with his smart, candid and often witty take on the absurdities of modern life.
With his trademark affinity for understanding how national and international issues impact local day-to-day life, Mike Barnicle embodies the viewpoint of the "everyman” and cuts through the rhetoric in his examination of issues ranging from economic disparities to political legacies. Sharp and at times cheeky, Barnicle with laser focus examines today's news—whether it is the folly of politicians, issues of war and peace, or pop culture—to provide a well-researched and educated point of view that considers the effect on workers, families, children and society at large. A permanent member of the panel on MSNBC’s Morning Joe and guest on Hardball with Chris Matthews, Barnicle was a columnist at The Boston Globe for a quarter century and is today a columnist for The Daily Beast. An accomplished and award-winning broadcast, radio and print journalist of more than four decades, Mike’s work has appeared on NBC’s TODAY, WCVB’s newsmagazine Chronicle, Imus in the Morning, his own radio show on WTKK-FM in Boston, and his columns have also been published by The Huffington Post, Newsweek and The New York Daily News. Mike is an avid Red Sox fan and often writes about the game of baseball.
