Anyone who thinks MSNBC is a mouthpiece for the Democrats is far over-estimating the ability of liberals to form and maintain coalitions.

While MSNBC is not unbiased, it does push a democrat voice in the media, it's not as overt -nor as ridiculous- as Fox 'News' does it.

Speaking as a liberal who has never watched MSNBC, it does come across as a wannabe FN from what I've seen on fark. I don't really care that it's "not as" biased as Fox. Nothing is..

I have never heard of my liberal or democrat friends mention watching MSNBC. Whereas my Republican friends (and especially their parents (and i would assume ESPECIALLY their grandparents)) watch Fox constantly. So in that sense, this guy is right, they are like Fox (a pandering entertainment network masquerading as news in order to build a brand) but not as good at it.

coco ebert: MSNBC is not as bad as Fox but I've been watching cable news more since before the election and yes, MSNBC is definitely soft on the Obama administration, particularly when it comes to foreign policy. If Bush had been pulling the same crap as Obama they would have been all over that sh*t.


I think the big difference is that MSNBC clearly delineates news from opinion. They are very one-sided in their commentary (with exceptions, like Joe Scarborough and that one Republican consultant who sat in on election night, but those are few and far between), and arguably even more one-sided than Fox in their selection of talk show guests. (Ed Schultz brings in people who agree with him; Bill O'Reilly brings in people who disagree with him, and then insults them; pick your poison.) But MSNBC's big, big advantage is that their actual news reporting isn't nearly as thoroughly infested by partisan talking points as Fox News is.

zedster: cman: The problem is is that we Americans dont want real news. We want Brangelina, we want to be scared out of our shoes, we want to be taught how to think. News organizations cannot exist on news because people dont buy that crap. That is why we have Fox News and MSNBC, because it sells. Partisan news networks sell.

unless we try we will never know :-/
As anyone tried a more serious news station in the US market? I don't real consider AJE in that category based on the fact they have a large backing of ex-BBC people and target the Middle East and African stores, so not really US market oriented


Why would you want 24 hours a day of just news? That's boring. You're not going to watch TV all day anyway. Just DVR the PBS News Hour and watch that instead.

MSNBC, which gives three hours every morning to a Gingrich Revolution Republican congressman and has non-opinion based news shows that are neutral to network standards is just like Fox which has zero liberal hosts of any kind and displays bias in what should be non-opinion based news broadcasts. 

Sorry, having some liberal opinion programs does not make them Fox. They have a conservative led program too, and remain neutral outside of opinion shows. Fox does not feature this sort of balance, it is wall to wall propaganda.

BronyMedic: MSNBC does not equal Fox News, you're absolutely right. It still doesn't mean they don't have an obvious bias. And to be fair, if you're NOT watching the news and taking everything in with a grain of skepticism on how it's reported or the follow-up there of, you're doing it wrong.


i think the problem i have with fox is that their bias pervades their entire organization. If i tune in to see a pundit, i generally expect some level of bias, because they are opinion people. But when i turn it on during the day, i expect to see normal news reporting, without a bias. When you watch MSNBC's pure news coverage, its just news. When you watch CNN's pure news coverage, its just news. When you watch Fox's pure news coverage, its still biased.

I do have to give this man a round of applause. At least he's sticking to his principles, and saying what a LOT of Americans feel at this moment. They're tired of the news not reporting the news, and instead spinning it to serve the agenda of a political faction.
