Phil Griffin Talks MSNBC Convention Coverage, Says CNN Is 'Desperate' [View all]
For instance, MSNBC Phil Griffin wasn't about to let a recent CNN release promising that his rival would be the only "unbiased" network covering the conventions slip by him. “When you’re desperate, you start calling different things out," he told The Huffington Post on Thursday.
Griffin also had words for Sam Feist, CNN's Washington bureau chief, who described his network as "the only cable news channel that hasn't a picked side in this election."
“Not every voter wants to be told how to vote," Feist recently told The Huffington Post’s Michael Calderone. "CNN will give viewers and voters an opportunity to hear both sides."
Griffin dismissed those comments, saying that he would let Feist's "words speak for themselves." He touted MSNBC’s plans for convention coverage, eagerly anticipating the official start of the election season.
