4. They don't own a lot of private prisons like GE....
If they get ratings they will stay otherwise look for more programing to try and make MSNBC more profitable.

I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't go toward a more liberal slant. They can see how well the Fox programing has helped News Corp. I can tell you this, if ComCast would have owned MSNBC back in 2002, Phil Donahue would still be on the air...
