I used to check out MSNBS for laughs for a few minutes once in a while. Olbermann was a comic genius, although he didn’t know it. His fake outrage and pseudo-intellectualism coupled with his pathetic attempts to look normal were a hoot. At the end, when he was reduced to reading Jamed Thurber short stories to his audience like some kiddy show host, I LMAO.Now he’s on ESPN (who said they would never let him back on their property) doing the same act, but it ain’t funny anymore, just pathetic. Making fun of jocks for being dumb isn’t exactly original.

Now I can’t stand to even stop on MSLSD for more than a few seconds. It’s like a visit to a mental ward. Doesn’t anybody have the guts to tell Sharpton he’s so stupid he can’t even talk? I think he’s actually creating racism, both white and black. Isn’t there one black person who will tell Al he’s embarrassing his whole race?

PS: The comments on the Politico story are a hoot. A couple of idiot MSLSD supporters are taking a beating.

MSNBC was pretty popular with conservatives in the pre-FNC days while the Clinton-Lewinsky business was going on. Then Newsweek/WaPo bought into the network and changed its political orientation.

As FNC hit more and more markets, appealing to conservatives, they abandoned MSNBC completely. Under GE/WaPo/Newsweek, the station consciously became ever more left. But it wasn’t in its earlier days. It wasn’t conservative then but it did offer an alternative to the left-leaning main networks, and did offer conservative voices.

It won’t be in serious trouble until consumers can CHOOSE to not have it on their system.

Right now NBC holds a gun to distributors’ heads and if they want NBC’s other channels, they have to carry the PMSNBC network. If television CHOICE were put in the hands of CONSUMERS, you’d see MSNBC’s audience shrink even more...people do NOT want to pay for that crap.

Heck, you might even see shrinkage in the ABC/CBS/NBC conglomerates...

I hear that former MSNBC viewers are now getting fair and balanced news from Al Jazeera, Really, some friends of mine told me it was fair and balanced and that you get a better worldview.

That is why a la carte will never be an option. There is little incentives for the providers to do it. They loose ad revenue (because there are channels few would buy, and therefore fewer adds).

Ah...but they can. And that's what's terrifying the "cable TV" industry: lots of "cord cutting" as people discover that Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon Instant, YouTube, podcasts, etc provide vast on-demand content without having to pay thru the nose for ad-driven limited-choice drivel.

The real killer will be when a real news organization (focused on facts, not flippant bias) provides a video stream thru the aforementioned outlets & devices.
