MSNBC president Phil Griffin spoke to The Hollywood Reporters Marisa Guthrie about his network, and the state of the cable news competition.
Griffin was candid, saying that there is a certain Fox News personality he would love to poach:
THR: Is there an on-air personality on another network that you would like to have? Griffin: Yes. I dont know if I should say this. [Fox News anchor] Shep Smith. I just like his way. I like everything about him.

He could go there and date Rachel Maddow, I hear she’s not married.
What, huh? Is that right? Well, oh uh.. nevermind.
MSNBC should hire Chris Wallace too. He gone from being obnoxious to out and out campaigning for Obama. Fox should fire him.
I thought MSNBC was headed for extinction. No? Microft was supposedly pulling out of the deal with NBC because they felt the network too liberal.
Did you see the post debate coverage on Fox?
They were unwilling to say the obvious. At one point, they appeared to be giving Obama the benefit of the doubt. They were bending over backward to be fair.
The irony here is to get unvarnished news, you had to go to MSNBC, where they were just nakedly crucifying Obama and going play by play in showing where he’d completely failed.
Fox better hire some journalists soon, or they need to start baring some midriff. You cannot get news on TV anymore - full stop. Brit Hume was just flaccid. Megan Kelly was pulling punches. It wasn’t until Pat Buchanon appeared with Greta (shudder) that Pat said, “Romney could not have done any better than he did tonight.”
The more I watch the debate again, the more clear it was that Obama’s defeat was absolute. There was literally no sound bite salvageable from any of it.
Shep would be addition by subtraction.
Cavuto is better.
Confirms why I change channels when Shep comes on.
Shep would love to ‘lean forward.’
And the IQ of their talking heads.
Yeah that is true. Nobody likes Claire McCaskills. Only moonbats.
Agree 100%. Since his father died, I guess he decided he has to pick up the leftist legacy.

They aren’t nipping at Fox News. They are being buried by Fox News in the ratings. The left tries to promote their leftist channels with falsehoods.
HE**,...WE’ll GIVE HIM TO YOU ALONG WITH ALAN COLMES.
can’t stand Smith, I quit watching fox after many years. If he’s on I turn the channel.
