mired in last place among the three cable-news networks, and by all
indications bereft of purpose or professional compass, has been trying
to save itself by morphing into a kind of Fox News Lite — less news,
more nasty right-wing chat masquerading as redress for the rest of the
media's alleged liberal bias.
looks like MSNBC is trying to make up what they lost in Savage by
putting Queen Hate Coulter on Hardball for the second time in 10 days.
We're not suprised by the hiring nor the firing, surely?
"Last October, when Fox's business anchor Neil Cavuto asked the
chairman and CEO of General Electric, Jeffrey Immelt, how he planned to
improve his own cable network -- MSNBC -- Immelt replied, 'I think the
standard right now is Fox. And I want to be as interesting and edgy as
you guys are.'"

BTW, the entire article is giving me an idea of why conservatives
think they're funny. Ailes's sense of humor is ... illuminating.
I've always wondered why MSNBC doesn't draw more fire from the left.
It is as openly and disgustingly biased as Faux, only more craven, if
that's possible. I watched some of their war coverage and it was truly
Can I meet the focus group that help green-light the Scarborough
show? Was that group made up entirely of his relatives and friends? Help
me explain the inexplicable!
And, as much as it shames me to say it, I truly feel sorry for
terminal loudmouth and shit-for-brains Chris Matthews, being forced to
talk to Ann Coulter on a weekly basis and all.
As long as SNL keeps doing fantastic sendups of Hardball, I don't
mind too much that Matthews has a show. It's not like anybody watches
it, other than the SNL writers.
Hi, I just wanted so say thank you guys ! I really like your site and i hope you will continue to improving it.
