MSNBC Leans Right | The Young Turks

In case anyone still thought MSNBC was a progressive news media outlet…

MSNBC has a new ad trumpeting their shift to the right. They’re apparently done leaning forward. “In what is perhaps the network’s most overt symbol of the new tone, however, is another ad that will run in some conservative and mainstream outlets. The ad features some of MSNBC’s conservative and Republican contributors — like radio host Hugh Hewitt, GOP consultant Steve Schmidt and former RNC chairman Michael Steele — with a cheeky message: “People might start accusing us of leaning too far to the right.” The “leaning right” ad is the culmination of the network’s efforts to prove that MSNBC is not just a home for liberals, but of opinionated analysis from all sides.” ~ Cenk Uygur

    Are there any redeeming qualities at all remaining in the corporate news media? Can any of them still be considered as performing legitimate journalism? If agenda-driven business models and a gluttonous appetite for advertising revenues are the only reasons for their existence, why don’t they just market sensational viral videos to teenagers? They’d certainly make more money at it!

    Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite must be anguishing in their graves right now.

      I can only imagine… venturing into a new line of business would require hard work and monetary risk – as long as they have viewers, it’s an an easy living.
