No, if they just cater their product to people that watch a lot of TV then they would have done better.

Perfect use of the Entertainment tab.  There is no "news" program that isn't thinly-veiled entertainment any more.

So liberals can't make left biased news channel profitable. Great, another thing liberals can be smug about.

Liberals are harder to terrify with scary news stories about the blah man coming to take your guns.

/how's that?

Daily stories and rants about the evils of conservatism doesn't count as news, just like daily stories and rants about the evils of liberalism also doesn't count as news.

It's not all anti-conservative stories and rants, ok.

How about Frontline?

Frontline is a PBS program.

MSNBC isn't a liberal outlet anymore, anyway.  They just keep Maddow, O'Donnell, and Sharpton around to fool people into thinking they're a liberal outlet.

No, they can. It is just an over-saturated market for leftist news.

Comcast should just go ahead and sell NBC news to George Soros or the eBay guy. Make it official.

They're nothing but a typical lefty broadcasting disaster anyway.
 
2013-12-22 07:24:08 PM
It's kind of criminal that "Today" is considered part of the news division.  I wonder if the for-profit news industry could survive actually reporting news, ideology of the owner and financial pressure to turn a profit be damned.

If you bear every characteristic of that which you are supposedly duping people into believing you are, haven't you become that thing in reality? If you go around robbing people at gunpoint, you're an armed robber regardless of your underlying intentions.

The CNN online 'News' headlines are"

Cracker Barrel loves crackers
A&E boycott growing
AIDS tweet
Anchorman 2 is number 2
Bloomberg on SNL
Al Qaeda apologizes for blowing up hospital (as opposed to school?)
Ned Vizzini kills self, (famous for authoring teen depression book)
Manning breaks Brady's touchdown record.

This is NOT the entertainment section -- but actual Headlines. That's some fine journalism there, Lou.
"News", indeed.

Meanwhile at Fox News... Obama is still BLACK!

24/7 of 'commentary' has rarely ever been news.

People... people... the article is about NBC NEWS, not it's sister network MSNBC.  Only mention of MSNBC was talk of bringing talent from there to NBC to help.

Fire Deborah Turness. Replace her with Tom Brokaw. Problem solved. In fact, fire everybody and replace them with Tom Brokaw.
 
2013-12-22 08:32:27 PM
Turness has been trying to figure out the future for David Gregory's "Meet the Press," with options including bringing in MSNBC's "Morning Joe" team of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski for a Sunday show

Obviously the stupidity at NBC isn't confined to the entertainment division.  Gregory may not be perfect, but Joe Scarborough?  Really?

ChrisDe: Fire Deborah Turness. Replace her with Tom Brokaw. Problem solved. In fact, fire everybody and replace them with Tom Brokaw.


Yeah, that's what the news needs. Let it all be driven by a multimillionaire 73-year-old conservative who thinks the US had no better years than when the country had rationing, a huge draft, and an overseas war that was killing as many Americans per year as all nations have lost in Afghanistan in the past 12 years combined.

That's how you reach the younger demographic.

I don't remember that ever being the case. Care to point to one time in history when the ones who controlled the media (of whatever era) weren't biased?

I'll just keep watching BBC news.

I imagine some mornings Gary Condit is flipping channels, sees Scarborough on TV, and just starts to weep tears of rage.

The only keeper at MSNBC is Maddow. Fold it up and give her MTP. She would excell by being the only show to ask tough questions. Done.

FTFA: options including bringing in MSNBC's "Morning Joe" team of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski for a Sunday show, or blowing up the entire franchise and trying something completely different, sources familiar with the situation said.

Get rid of Joe if you must but keep Mika!

You don't expect people to actually read the article do you?  Everyone is full of Christmas cookies and rum-soaked fruitcake.  Farkers are having trouble just staying awake.

2013-12-23 02:28:36 AM
Not only is it not talking about MSNBC (thanks submitter, thou troll) it's really only talking about Meet the Press which, IIRC, is a bunch of people talking at the same time and trying to be louder than the others. It needs fixing.
 
2013-12-23 03:34:25 AM
Liberal News Media fails because their target audience would rather watch Miley Cyrus shake her skeevy body, or listen to the latest Kangaye West crap.

MSNBC is god-awful news dreck...and has few hotties to take your mind off their stupidity

Maybe they can all pool their salaries together and pay everyone a fair share.
There no reason that Joe Scarbrough should be making more money than Sharpton.
