I’m still trying to figure out what the hell happened to MSNBC... Loooooooooonnnngggggg ago back in the late 90s MSNBC was an excellent network with a lot of varied programming. At the time my cable provider only offered CNN and MSNBC as Fox News was still relatively new. MSNBC seemed to be trying to strike a balance with liberal and conservative commentators, and their news reporting was actually pretty fair, especially compared to the crap CNN was serving. For a while you had Laura Ingraham, Michael Savage even had a show, Michael Medved was a regular contributor.
Then the FLorida election case happened, and the folks at MSNBC lost their minds.
“Im still trying to figure out what the hell happened to MSNBC...”
Jeff Zucker happened to MSNBC. He saw it as a way to promote his own leftist views, and keep himself popular in the New York parties scene.
This is the same guy that wrote Obama’s Styrofoam columns stadium speech, if you remember.
Now Zucker is CEO at CNN, and the exact same thing is happening there.
