Alex Wagner

Alex’s mother, Tin Swe Thant, is an immigrant from Burma. I’ve always thought Alex was cute, but one thing that always struck me as odd about her was that no matter how horrible the story, she always presented it with a smile.

Alexandra Swe “Alex” Wagner (born December 4, 1977) was an American TV host and liberal political commentator, and was the anchor for the last four years of the daytime program Now with Alex Wagner on MSNBC, before its recent cancellation. From 2003 to 2007, she was editor-in-chief of The Fader magazine, covering music and cultural movements from around the world. From there she jumped into political commentary. As you can see from the bit of video below from her Fader days, it looks like Alex has aged quite a bit in just the last eight years or so. I guess politics can do that to you.

    Beautiful woman with a great pair of legs. Love her hair cut too. I think it fits her face nicely. Agree with IeatCows also on the al sharpton appearance also.

    A word of warning: politically related posts tend to bring out very nasty comments, but this will not be tolerated—I’ve banned one user already.

    She is cute, you’re right I might have guessed a little older but still very attractive. Mercifully I pay little attention to politics over here let alone in the US and while I have heard the name before I have no idea who Al Sharpton is so it’s a big thumbs up from me :)

    Lovely, really like burmese girls. ditto on Rev Al and his views but to his credit he looks great after loosing all that weight and gets to chill with a hottie like Alex :)

    Too bad the moderator lets the right winger attack Rev Al but then won’t let anyone respond. I used to go out of my way to click your links to support this web site. No more.

    Paul Lilly,

    Actually Paul, I deleted and banned another right wing commenter on this post. I deleted your post too because it was a personal attack—please just state your opinion without attacking other readers.

    For the record, I actually agree with you.

    I should probably have cropped sharpton out of the photo. Next time I do a political siren post I’ll do that to extraneous people as to keep the focus on the siren. I would prefer to keep people’s political bile out of the viewing/discussion in at least one place. We can get enough of that elsewhere in life imo.

    Dr. Lee,

    So why did you IEatCows to attack Sharpton? ? ?

    Paul Lilly,

    He didn’t—he just said that he didn’t like the fact that Alex associated with him, and that’s just expressing an opinion, not a personal attack.

    Alex is a journalist- she interviews anyone and everyone across the political spectrum here in the USA.

    Smart lady. Wonderful smile. And tall.

    And she makes a great guest on other talk shows- she is actually quite funny and her business gives her plenty to talk about.

    The photo with the man who may be Al Sharpton is one of the best of Alex shown here. French is right about her job, BTW.
