WOW! Atrios now advertising for MSNBC.....
I have mixed feelings about this... On one hand I believe in the integrity of Atrios and I know he'll continue writing what he thinks... On the other I despise everything about GE/Bill Gates/MSNBC. He's basically advertising to increase it's viewership... That's all we need is more folks to watch Tweety and Gang....

3. Normally only the Right Wing gets the big advertising bucks
Nice to see it being spred around to those left of the dial.

5. Well OK... But what next? Fox?
How about the Moonie Times? Or, The American Spectator? Money ain't everything...

6. Any support of left/progressive media (including blogs)
is okay in my book. It is up to us to discern if the advertising is having an effect on the content.

4. Atrios has good reason. Doesn't msnbc host Alterman's blog?
Alterman and other journalists listen to Atrios which is GREAT for our side. It's a great information share, imo.
