11. M$NBC dials in the truth when it makes them money. They have a feduciary responsibility to their
shareholders, and they do their best to live up to it.

As for your question about politicians without hypocrisy, there are none. None. The best Democrat and the worst republican are in the game for the same reason; sucking the public teat for all it's worth.

It is politicians who are responsible for the ills of the world. THEY allow CEO's to get away with policies that hurt people and the environment. THEY allow banks to fuck people without lubrication. THEY make value decisions that affect our daily lives in a negative manner. THEY run for office again and again while making millions in the background from donors, and THEY leave office after decades complaining about how bad we all have it while doing NOTHING to make things better. THEY leave DC in limosines, bound for huge homes in high-rent places. THEY travel to far away lands on the country's dime with their families and those of their entourages while calling their trips "junkets" and taking up whole floors in 5-star hotels.

M$NBC simply gives them airtime because some of them have huge followings made up of naive people.
