76. Yes . . . but that idea didn't appeal to them until a short time ago . . .
You have to keep in mind the right wing has been very willing to lose money

on publications and broadcasting -- where NBC actually dumped their #1 show/Phil Donahue --

in order to keep anything liberal/truthful from being heard.

Suddeny -- about 18 months/2 years ago/? MSNBC made this opening?

I really thought they were seeing that their bread and butter was changing hands --

and maybe hoped also to knock off Jon Stewart?

Schultz and Maddow, I think added a lot of icing to the "we're not really against you"

statement to the new administration????

NBC/GE makes a lot of war weapons -- Pentagon contracts --

Plus, they control a lot of media -- anti-trust/monolpoly laws???
