MSNBC: by going right you are destroying your viewership

I'm disappointed that MSNBC is being so critical of the dems - not factually critical which is okay - but critical on subjective stuff.

They are going to lose their audience - I used to watch Rachel and now I've switched away.

3. Perhaps they didn't want a Liberal viewer-ship after all.

And, perhaps they just don't like viewers that think for themselves. So f**k-em!

8. Yep. They tried it during the Bush years until about 2006. Didn't work.

They will never beat Murdoch Fox. Maybe CNN though? (I wish Ted Turner still owned it.)

11. Seriously I think Rachel, Mika etc may be auditioning for post Roger Ailes jobs @ "New Fox"

There are a lot of stories suggesting that after the Ailes crisis Murdoch is going to appoint his two sons as the heads of Fox, and they are not (apparently) nearly as conservative as Ailes or Murdoch, and that they are very concerned that Fox is losing ratings while hemorrhaging viewers as they have a rapidly aging demographic (average viewer age is something unbelievable like 75 years of age) and NO appeal to millenials or Gen Xers.

Honestly I think some of these people at MSNBC (including two or three at CNN as well) are auditioning for spots at the "New Fox." Otherwise Rachel's bizarre march into this new territory is inexplicable. I mean Rachel was a RHODES SCHOLAR, and she is wasting her intellectual energy whining that Bill Clinton's very well-received speech was "offensive?!" Her "outrage" at Clinton's speech was frankly so absurd, and so out of the norm, that it was being referenced by conservative commentators as a sign of growing general insanity at MSNBC.

5. I had to leave MJ for the disparaging remarks, I found there are other networks who do not

want their viewers to go away. I think Joe and Mika have be auditioning for a FOX position.

10. Yep..

 

I used to watch A LOT, and now barely even flip it on. I'd have it on in the background in the office throughout the entire day.

Comcast got its wish. A media watchdog did an analysis of MSNBC before and after Comcast took over control. Prior to their ownership, discussion and critique of the TPP was featured in segment pieces at least 46 times in the 3 months before Comcast formally took control. In the 9 months after Comcast took control, the TPP got 2 mentions of on air discussion and were neutral in it's commentary on the proposed deal.

They've neutered and / replaced the entire channel.
