1. I remember Matt Lauer taking the heat for asking repetitive questions about emails to Hillary..

during the Commander's forum.

later it was found out Andy Lack was pushing the email angle.

12. That would be extremely difficult. The amount of money needed for that would make it almost

insurmountable.

AirAmerica demonstrated just how hard it was:

15. Someone tried that once.

Then he sold it for $500 million bucks and help tank liberal, or truthful media.

3. If they make more money going thast way, then they'll go that way.

Being a capitalist means that greed trumps morality every time.

5. But they are experiencing high ratings,

so how could this be a financially driven decision?

FFS, MSNBC is about all I watch anymore.

8. When greed rules, "high" is never "high enough".

As long as the possibility exists of getting "higher", "high" just won't do.

16. It's all about the jerk off running the "news" division. I can't remember his name.

When Russet died, the VP of MSNBC got fired, then Keith got fired. Before the Illegal War, Phil Donahue was fired, despite his off the charts ratings. People were so afraid of "appearing" to be "anti-American", by speaking the truth or having a different opinion you got BURIED by everyone else.

When the pile on began with President Obama they puss-ed out so fast to appear as fair and balanced as Fux. There are only 2 shows that I can stomach, Joy Reid and Rachel. I worry because either one of them can be canned the Melissa Harris Perry was last year.

Their radical right turn after 9/11 gave people whiplash when they started firing people for appearing to be soft on terrorists. Despite the fact it was President Obama that got Bin Laden.

They are cowards, flat out cowards.

20. They must have brought him in to take from Fox, but Trump's rise

has cause more liberal MSNBC to go up while Fox implodes. This has messed with their plans big time. Now what do they do?

13. Did you not hear what the guy (who ever he is) say they're going in a direction that is

 

not making money. Why then, would they go in that direction on the political talk spectrum?

4. But over 50% of the country

including a lot of folks in wealthy areas, voted for Hillary. How can this make financial sense? This will only split the Fox audience, and the rest of us will turn off the tv.

11. True.I will never watch GVS.Does MSNBC think that now that they have the liberals, they will convert

us? Hello. We are the ones who read and watch real news, maybe a bit too much even.

17. They think they can sneak this change in as if we're not noticing.

 

Hue Hewitt? Greta Van Sustren? Who's next? They obviously don't care about making money as the commentator said. Their Corporate Overlords want a more centrist right presentation that does not impugn Corporate Greed. Sorry but I'm not buying it. I get my info from other sources, but for people like my mom, MSNBC is the only progressive political commentary she watches, literally all day. She's 83. CNN is crap in my opinion and it's filling up their screen with heads in little boxes has become ridiculous. How many fucking boxes with heads in them can we take.

It's insane. I don't think I'll ever watch network news ever again.

21. Thom Hartmann this last week on his radio show said that MSNBC might be turning conservative,

 

that the station had been planning to go conservative once Hillary won.
