Skip to comments.MSNBC Personnel Directory from my Google Search

Tired of throwing remote controls and coasters at the TV screen while you're surfing from FOX to MSNBC to "keep your friends close but your enemies closer?" Does coming to FR provide you with SOME outlet for your frustration but you would LOVE to talk/fax/email someone live and real at MSNBC?
Here is a handy little gem I found using the Google search engine.
It appears to be a phone, fax and email directory of MSNBC Personnel. Although the original *pdf format is password protected at MSNBC, it is formatted in a text-only version here that Google has taken it upon itself to archive.
If THAT fails, go to Google and enter this in the search box (including quotation marks): "201 583 5222". You will get back a search result entitled "CONTACT US". You can then click on not the *pdf search result, but the "Text-Only" version ( their archived text link.)
BUT BEWARE. When I download the text-only version then try to select text in it, it gets kind of buggy and slows my computer up. The browser only hiccups a little though, so try to avoid "selecting" text in it, and try printing it instead. I was going to select the entire text and repost it here, but my computer kept freezing up on that page only. If anyone else can get it all posted here, they are welcome to do so.
The way I found this is that I had jotted down 201-583-5222 some time ago (starting last November 7) as being the MSNBC Newsroom phone number. I needed it tonight to vent my frustration at them, but I needed to verify that this number was, in fact, for MSNBC. When I entered it into the search engine, "CONTACT US" was among the results I got (including some messages I posted at FR last year).
I have included below a quick sampling of the type of information available in the directory.

Google's cache can provide some pretty cool things sometimes, hmmm?
That's pretty cool. I have to download a lot of .pdf's on the properties of certain plastics for my job and this will help.
rm3friskerFTN says Adobe *.pdf files that are password protected can be cracked very easily due to flawed protection, coding algorithms utilized by Adobe & their business partners.
As an LAWFUL ACADEMIC/INVESTOR RESEARCH exercise to self-discover how flawed such Adobe schemes are one might visit the Gallery of Adobe Remedies Website maintained by a noted Computer Scientist & Research Professor on the Carnegie-Mellon University Faculty.
Snippet from the Gallery of Adobe Remedies Website:
A large amount of useful content is now encoded as PDF (Portable Document Format) files, including files marketed for the eBook document reader. Unfortunately, some of this content is not usable in all the lawful ways a purchaser desires, due to access control mechanisms created by Adobe and adopted by content publishers to the detriment of their customers. Computer professionals who have examined these mechanisms have found them easy to defeat. This [Carnegie-Mellon University Computer Science Faculty Member] web site will publish information about Adobe's access control mechanisms and the remedies people have devised to deal with them
