MSNBC president Phil Griffin gave an interview to Jeff Bercovici of Forbes, and said all the usual things about how MSNBC is less ideological than Fox News and Fox is a success despite not always being based in fact. But Griffin claimed no one ever knew what Tim Russerts politics were and insisted that MSNBC is defined as "very smart progressive politics and information." The boss of very smart MSNBC is not going to tolerate crude terms for the president (well, this president) on its airwaves, because Were not a frat house. At MSNBC, Griffin claimed, "name-calling and

MSNBC = Animal House
MSNBC Said this?? The smarmiest anti-republican station on the planet?
New MSNBC theme song!
Can’t say I have any complaints about the FNC Fraternity especially its stable of Little Sis’s.
"progressive" is another word for socialism.
Just say it. Go ahead. Make up the wildest claims, utterly absurd, and say them!!! This is the formula for Phil Griffin!
Dude even admits it's the place for 'Progressives', and yet he will sit there with his teeth in his mouth and his face hanging out, and claim less ideology than Fox.

But wait....how about this, MSNBC has to advertise on FOX to get viewers!!!! Yep. I was watching FOX yesterday and here comes a commercial for msnbc. I’ve also seen commercials for “tingle down my leg” as well. Leftists are such a bunch of cr@p.
Griffin is a graduate of Vassar College, with a Bachelor of Arts degree. in English. He and his wife, Kory Apton, reside in Manhattan with their two children.
really sounds like a guy in touch w/ the average American - LOL. Talk about a guy living in a bubble.
“smart progressive”...an oxymoron if there ever was one...
“...MSNBC is defined as “very smart progressive politics and information.”
Pffft! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!! Hand to to them on one thing: Progressive is the new speak for Communism. And he’s right—it’s a commie propaganda information cesspool.
Griffin is delusional. Like we didn’t already know.
Delusional=A false belief strongly held in spite of invalidating evidence, especially as a symptom of mental illness.
MSNBC is not just smart, it's very smart.
When is MSNBC going to start claiming that they're very cool?
It appears that their viewership numbers correlate very well with their targeted audience, since the number of "smart progressives" is lower then whale poop on the bottom of the Marianas Trench.
So I guess that means they won’t run my piece on “The Asshat Boy Potentate”?
...But you can call our opponents "slut", "whore" & "Hitler", and we're OK with that...
If Griffin doesn’t know that Tim Russert was a liberal, then he probably doesn’t know that Chris Matthews is a closet liberal, because we all know, MSNBC is non biased.
