MSNBC’S CHICKENS FINALLY COMING HOME TO ROOST?

According to an article found at Reuters Hollywood executives & insiders are ripping MSNBC apart and declaring the network is completely out of control.

By Paul Bond

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – In a room full of television industry executives, no one seemed inclined to defend MSNBC on Monday for what some were calling its lopsidedly liberal coverage of the presidential election.

The cable news channel is “completely out of control,” said writer-producer Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, a self-proclaimed liberal Democrat. She added that she would prefer a lunch date with right-leaning Fox News star Sean Hannity over left-leaning MSNBC star Keith Olbermann.

[…] Bloodworth-Thomason and others seemed especially critical of the way MSNBC — and other media — has attacked Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin while demeaning her supporters.

[…] Pollster Frank Luntz, a regular guest on the Fox News, joked that MSNBC is “the only network with more letters in its name than viewers.”

Frank, this is a surprise? Ever tried to watch the Rachael Maddow show for more than 5 minutes. Talk about torture!

    So when FoxNews and O’Reiley spin their conservative agenda…that’s ok?

    kc2 says “So when FoxNews and O’Reiley spin their conservative agenda…that’s ok?”

    Get a clue, this isn’t about FoxNews or Bill O’Reilly (at least spell his name right, idiot), this is about MSNBC, a wholly owned and operated subsidiary of NBC, turning into a partisan broadcast tool of the Democratic Party, nothing more than a megaphone for the Obama campaign.

    Olbermann and his insane rants, Chris Matthews with his “tingling legs”, there isn’t the slightest pretense at appearing objective.

    The best thing for NBC to do is to completely pull the plug on MSNBC, relabel and rebrand the product for roll out in January ’09, something like “NBC24-7”, and start fresh with a brand new crew, new faces, and actually try to present a balanced news broadcast.

    “kc2”, hmmm “k” for keith, “c” for chris, “2” for your IQ. Makes all the sense in the world.

    KC2,

    An independent group has found FOX news network, to be the most fairly balanced news outlet. If you dislike Fox because they are biased, then you really dislike them for offering a difference of opinion as you have no problem with the MSM being without doubt, liberal agenda run.

    I was a long suffering, full time MSNBC viewer. As the network became more and more radicalized I found myself watching FOX because that was the only place to hear both sides of the story.

    In fact, I’ve found FOX to be so “fair & balanced” on more than one occasion, I found myself questioning if they weren’t too fair and balanced!

    People who vilify FOX are the same people who comment on books they have never read or movies they’ve never seen.
