Industry buzz has it that MSNBC, the perennial also-ran in cable news, is considering the prospect of essentially dropping its live-news format and devoting itself entirely to taped, newsmagazine-style programming.
And much of its content could likely be repackaged from NBC News. One indication of the possible move came in July when the network launched a newsmagazine, "MSNBC Investigates, the industry publication Broadcasting & Cable points out in a recent edition.
---> SNIP <---
"The unspoken truth in all of this speculation is that there are simply too many all-news networks and only so many people to watch them, according to Broadcasting & Cable.
"As the owner of a network thats stuck at the bottom of the cable news heap, NBC Universal has little choice but to make a radical change if it wants to differentiate MSNBC from what the other guys are doing.

This is going to annoy their viewer.
We're MSNBS, we suck differently, not that anybody would notice.
Yes yes....we need 24 hours a day of spittle spewing moonbats like Matthews and Olberwoman
Haha - will the intellectually dishonest Matthews be looking for work soon?
Go for it. Nobody would notice
Poor viewer-now he will have to read Algore's book again and again and again...
Nobody watches it anyway..who would notice? I mean, except for ten or fifteen really pissed off liberals, mental patients who watch it in the break room and people in doctors offices who cant change channels.
According to Rush Limbaugh it was Chris Matthews who did that interview with Clinton on Foxnews a couple of sundays ago.
Im surprised that after 2 or 3 days of this that Snurdly didnt correct him
L O L
I'm opposed to this. If I have to watch that homicidal maniac guy in the Kentucky prison one more time I'm gonna scream!
They have some pretty girls on MSNBC reporting news. Maybe they will get reassigned if this goes through and live news is axed.
MSNBC doesn't do news and never has, it does advocacy and thanks to John McCain they can advocate 24/7 while you can't.
I thought MSNBC went off the air long long time ago
The only thing more biased than MSNBC the news station is MSNBC the website. They practically have their entire opening page pasted with "Foley" stories. Can't help wondering if they gave Kennedy's drunk-driving incident anything more than a passing mention? The bias is beyond belief. Of course they are also linked with Newsweek - that bastian of balance (NOT!).
Darn, what will happen to the next Ashleigh Banfield waiting for her break as a sneering haughty beeyotch reading stupid celeb news???
