MSNBC Senior Executive: 'MSNBC Does Not Have A Political Agenda...We Tell The Truth'

Quote:
In the world of cable news opinion media, its a rather well accepted axiom that Fox News primetime line up advances opinion that are from the right of center, and that MSNBC's line up presents news and analysis from a left of center point of view. But according to a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter about the media's ostensible obsession with Sarah Palin, not everyone seems to see the "opiniotainment" landscape in such binary terms. Bill Wolff, for example, claims that MSNBC is not "driven by politics."


MSNBC has had great success with its shift to the left, and as a senior executive at the network it seems odd that in a moment of political correctness Wolff would distance himself from that successful strategy. But if certain Fox News and MSNBC executives still want to say there is no political agenda in their coverage so be it. They both can legitimately claim their dayside coverage is distinct and separate from the opinionated coverage in prime time. But Wolff is a prime time executive and more important, the showrunner and sometimes fill-in host for the very well regarded but overtly left leaning Rachel Maddow Show, which makes the comment all that much more difficult to understand.

Well, if Faux goes under, (hallejuah!!) then I'm sure there's enough infomercials on late night, for Shaun and Bill to "reattempt," to sell these needless wars in the Middle East, to the american public.

As far as the truth being too far left...

Shit, where else, are you going to find the truth? ANN COULTER???

If Ann Coulter's "adam's apple," was to Pinochio's nose when telling the truth, Ann would look like one of those pelicans down in Florida, with their beeks full of fish!!

I've always been curious, as to what percentage of sales from those infomercials, are from right wingers?

...and if there's a possibility of Ann's "adam's apple," being successfully auditioned, on the George Foreman portable grill.


...just a thought!! :D :bounce: :D

(I simply loath that woman!!) :evil: :evil: :evil:
