As much as MSNBC's left-wing prime time hosts portray themselves to be on the side of the workers, none of the anchors have responded to 10,000 petitions delivered to the network on Thursday from NBC writers and producers demanding more workplace rights.
Talking to TVNewser, Writers Guild of America East communications director Jason Gordon pointed out the hypocrisy of the liberal channel: "The company can't have it both ways – presenting the strong, progressive voices of the MSNBC hosts while at the same time depriving the [NBCUniversal] Peacock [Productions] employees of their own voices on the job."
This is not the first time MSNBC has been hypocritical when it comes treatment of its own employees. In a 2013 promo for the network, Now host Alex Wagner pushed for a hike in the minimum wage despite MSNBC refusing to pay its interns.
MSNBC has routinely backed such liberal policies while bashing conservative opponents:
MSNBC.com Hypes Fear That 'Workers' Could 'Lose... Right to a Weekend'
Ed Schultz to 'Heartless and Cruel' Republicans: Extend Unemployment Because of Cold!
MSNBC's Sharpton Slams 'Heartless Ideology' of GOP on Unemployment Benefits Extension
MSNBC's Hayes: GOPers 'Screwing Over' People, View 'Poverty as Punishment'
Chris Matthews: You’re ‘Racist’ If You’re Against Raising the Minimum Wage
“none of the anchors have responded to 10,000 petitions delivered to the network on Thursday from NBC writers and producers . . . “
NBC has 10,000 writers and producers? I find that hard to believe. Or is each writer and producer filling in a whole bunch of petitions each?
Ha! Do as we say, not as we do.
MSNBC should pay every employee a six-figure salary, with 100% free health care that includes sex change surgery, 24 weeks vacation, and never, ever have layoffs. That is, if they believe the BS their hosts spew every afternoon.
I’ll bet working for MSNBC is a real PITA. When you look at their lineup, they sure have problems attracting knowledgeable, bright and competent people.
Time to pluck this Pisscock. Don’t quote from it or use it as a “source”., Complain to any establisment carrying it to change channels. All that comes from this thing is body effluent excreting a smelly substance spewing hate.
“The company can’t have it both ways presenting the strong, progressive voices of the MSNBC hosts while at the same time depriving the [NBCUniversal] Peacock [Productions] employees of their own voices on the job.”
Sure it can! It’s just a simple matter of being a hypocrite.
Could be a first.
