Is it because Comcast finally took over? I wonder, will he go to HBO with that other liberal traitor?

Is it vitriolic rhetoric to say I’m glad?

It has to be Comcast! Many have been saying that Comcast was going to clean house at MSNBC especially! They may lean left at eh company but probably not left enough if they lose money

I think Fox News Channel should go back to news and start another channel for news-talk.

Comcast is cleaning house. Roger Ailes better sit up and take notice because these guys seem to be committed to making a profit rather than promoting left wing loonery.

I’m sure Keith can always get a job as a deputy sheriff in Pima County if he doesn’t mind violating the illegal aliens’ boycott.

Big mouth Blobbermann let go? If so, I would say so. Comcast took over about 2 or 3 days ago.

I heard they fired some executives right away.

I had it in breaking to begin with and they took it out and then mashed up the actual headline by adding Facebook Breaking to it. Maybe they hit the sauce too hard when the news broke?

Might need more than FB as a source. I watched the video and was hoping he would pull a Howard Beal! (How is DU taking this sad news? LOL)
