On Rising with Krystal & Saagar, Ball’s […]. Both Ball and Enjeti are always smartly dressed, gleaming smiles all around, with Ball’s colorful wardrobe crushing the competition. Whereas MSNBC celebrates the Democratic Party’s takeover by affluent moderates, Rising seems to revel in attacking anyone or anything that smacks of “PMC.” Just as liberals tune in to Rachel Maddow to have a well-dressed wonk make them feel smart, Rising fans live to roast (and troll) that very demographic. He just knew how to talk to people.”. The photos were silly, innocuous, and thoroughly PG-13, but in the media climate still stuck in the conservative W years, they were more than enough to finish off her insurgent campaign.
Our new issue – asking whether the US is a failed state – is out soon. Clinton World, it seems, was not at all pleased. By signing up for this newsletter you’ll hear directly from us every Friday. After graduating from the University of Virginia with a degree in economics, she moved to East Liverpool, Ohio, once known as “the pottery capital of the world,” a time Ball calls “most influential for me, politically.” Steel mills in the surrounding Mahoning Valley kept the region steady with nearly 10,000 jobs — until they began to vanish in the 1980s. “Today,” she tells me, “the thing that East Liverpool is most known for is this horrible photo that went viral of two adults who had OD’d in the front seat with a child strapped into the backseat.” A police officer, she points out, shared the photo on social media. And the total opposite of the MSNBC green rooms she knew so well. Help Us Stick Around for Many More. Instead, she’s shaping up to be the Normie Queen of the new, Sanders-friendly media sphere.
She’s the anti-Maddow. Another recent monologue focused on whether or not Obama would step up to stop Sanders.

(Saagar Enjeti/Twitter) Enjeti is a young pundit on the rise, with a book, a TV show, and a podcast to his name. The bullet point read: “Ditch Ukraine. “Some of the wealthiest counties in the nation, the wealthiest zip codes, are right here,” Ball says, not exactly sharing my pessimism. “But every once in a while, Warren’s mask slips.”, For a former supporter, it’s quite a turn.
What you see with Ball’s polished style is a kind of shaking off of subcultural paraphernalia, accumulated detritus from a half century of political defeat. That includes Obama. “I mean, she actually said that Deval Patrick of Ameriquest and Bain Capital would be a ‘must have’ in her cabinet. “If her views have accelerated,” her cohost, Enjeti, says, “it’s not a result of her departure. The morning we met in her Washington studio, shortly after Sanders’s fiery, post–heart attack debate, numerous media outlets including NBC, New York magazine, and the Washington Post had mysteriously misattributed Sanders’s searing attack on the health insurance industry to Elizabeth Warren. And how far she’s moved from her congressional run.
As a natural pleaser, ‘A’ student, rule follower? “We’re going to talk about impeachment and Ukraine.”. PHP backed the Marine vet and severely crew-cut Rich Ojeda for West Virginia’s 3rd Congressional District — who introduced himself to voters with an intense four-minute video of him pumping iron — as well as former ironworker Randy Bryce in Wisconsin’s 1st. Already on our list? Watching Rising is like you just woke up a decade into some mass political realignment, in which the Bloombergians, the Paul Ryans, the Clintonites, and even the Obamicans have all been swept into the dustbin of history, leaving only two poles standing: Bernie Sanders and Steve Bannon.

Krystal and Saagar here with Rising from The Hill. We’ll share our favorite segments, an expanded Q&A where we can answer some of your questions more in depth, our favorite tweets, and our big takeaway from the week. And despite a feisty yet traditional polish that’s closer to Fox News than Vice, Ball is more and more shaping up to be their champion.
Ball’s familiarity with that green-room world though is what makes watching Rising so much fun. And with Sanders’s surging poll numbers, it seems more and more of the country is in agreement. Catalyst, a new journal published by Jacobin, is out now. (“No one is going to vote for a party who looks down their nose at them.”). Never cross. Krystal Ball looks like she belongs on TV. Always ready with a plan or a folksy quip. A sort of peppy, silver-sneakers cheerleader with the right answer always ready to go,” she said in November.
That would imply she’s split from the mainstream for a subculture, and she seems to have her eye on something much bigger than that. Hey everyone! Krystal and Saagar here with Rising from The Hill. !”, But sometimes, it sounds like Ball’s skepticism is rooted in an intimate familiarity with Warren’s appeal — and her own professional-class instincts: “Warren can’t get a B on the test, she has to get an A.
“I was completely non-political growing up,” Ball says as we stroll by a chunk of the Berlin Wall at the Newseum.
“They have been a godsend,” Ojeda said of Ball’s support. “But it’s also kind of funny that it would be so radical to just actually talk about class politics, and actually not go out of your way to smear Bernie Sanders every day.”. “She’s leaned more and more into gender and identity and less into the core of her critique of power,” Ball says.

You’re actually risking your life. As with Sanders himself, Ball is an unlikely envoy to the very online Millennial and Zoomer socialist set. In a segment on CNN’s selling of Buttigieg as the new Obama, Ball gives us an insider’s view as to how exactly cable news picks favorites: “Basically, the reporter and the producer decide whatever angle they’re looking for. Rising is participating in the otherizing of protesters to get clicks, and it's super gross. She sounds like it, too — if you’re not paying attention. Hopefully it will put a smile on your face even as we know the coming weeks will be tough for many, Risers included. That’s how Ball’s “On My Radar” graphic read the morning after Kamala Harris dropped out. “I think the most important divide in the American public is between people who are fundamentally treated as human beings in their work, the ‘creative class’ that Richard Florida named, and people who are basically disposable commodities. But “defector” is maybe the wrong way to describe Ball. The studio is sleek and modern in that Star Trek–bridge sort of way with impeccably designed graphics easily up to CNN’s standards. Michael’s Chris Matthews impression alone is worth a listen and Kyle’s Bill Kristol had us nearly rolling on the floor. “Prepare for a holiday season of neoliberal tears,” she said, closing it out with a huge grin. Before we leave the Newseum, we head up to the roof, with a gorgeous view of Washington at dusk. “Good morning, everyone! It’s a result of the times we live in.”.

With Harris out, Pete Buttiegieg is now a favorite punching bag of Ball’s, calling him the candidate of “generational change, which really just means the status quo, only from a younger dude.” (Her “On My Radar” bullet point for the candidate: “OK Boomer.”), “I guess it comes from always having a foot in both worlds, so to speak,” she tells me. It was there in 2014 that she delivered a powerful and prescient monologue urging Clinton not to run for president. “I grew up in rural Virginia, where I actually live now to this day, in a place that Trump won by something like thirty points.” (In a recent podcast interview, she video-chatted in from her car, apologizing because there was little broadband access in her hometown. “We have an amazing show for everyone today,” he replies.

Please, RISING with Krystal Ball and Saagar Enjeti. That includes the oligarchs. These aren’t the people that newsrooms are filled with. Perhaps even more controversially for certain online quarters, she believes “cancel culture” is, in fact, real — and a weapon capable of being used by the powerful to smear the Left. “I guess I’d call it conventional but playful,” she tells me.
