    Have MSNBC become too liberal !

    To be honest i hate MSNBC

    Why............they align themselves with people from the left even thought they say * were the center * and that they won't admitted, Even thought they came under question with scandal and lies and now this new one with the hiring of the DNC Video Production Director Anne Thompson..........

    Yes, but that's what their audience wants. MSDNC and Fux News have to out crazy each other in order to get ratings.
    If you really want to freak people the fuck out you have to pepper your schemes with mind-boggling inefficiency.

    MSNBC's always been very liberal, at least for as long as I remember. Of the three major news networks, I've always preferred CNN because it's the *least* biased. (It's still biased toward the liberal side, but not so much that it's a major issue). Fox is hugely biased to the right, MSNBC is hugely biased to the left. *shrug*.

    MSNBC doesn't claim to be 'center'. They admit their 'left' wing biased. (US left, globally they are still pretty right wing).

    Why do you care what a news station does? They aren't aligned with a side. They are aligned with money and their money comes from people opposed to Fox News. http://www.projectcensored.org/top-s...n-legally-lie/ Regardless of who the case was brought against it states that the news can lie about anything it wants.

    I gotta say, while MSNBC is clearly liberal comparing them to Fox is pretty silly. Fox will flat out make shit up.

    I don't think it matters to be honest, at least there is a major news station that is the antithesis of Fox News. (Just so we can have both biases being covered )

    And really, if you're complaining about MSNBC being too liberal, then why not complain about Fox News being too conservative?

    Since it would be better if there was no bias.

    It's okay Wells, we know you dont want to be honest about the facts, but that doesn't change them.

    They both make a lot of shit up (Wiretapping claims, Racism claims, and Gun rally mix up come to mind) , and MSNBC even has more opinion that actual news compared to Fox.

    As long as folks have freedom of speech to voice there opinions there will always be bias, Objective unbiased journalism died many years ago... When you know a journalist's position then frankly they are not 100% credible any longer. For more nearly 50 years, (1937-1981) Walter Cronkite reported the news from around the world and from behind the anchor desk at CBS... and never once did he interject his position on the news... he reported the news honestly and objectively... it wasn't until AFTER he left the anchor chair did any of us ever find out what his politics were... I might not agree with his politics, but to me he will always remain the most respected, honourable, truthful and unbiased journalists of the television age.

    …And that's the way it is

    Yey, if you search for cases where Fox News directly lied to their audience you'd be baffled by how much you can find.

    MSNBC isn't great and they're biased but they usually don't make stuff up as they go even if they always give a more biased or opinionated perspective. Still, fuck Morning Joe.

    One of them actually sued to protect their right to lie.

    I'll give you a hint, it wasn't MSNBC.

    Msnbc was caught editing the Trayvon Martin Incident and Newton gun incident and totally distorting what was actually happening. They're both equally bad and anyone who tries to defend either is wasting their time

    Editing makes them equal? Heh...not even close.

    Watch out everyone, MSNBC has moved from merely being somewhat liberal to too liberal!

    MSNBC and Fox are news networks designed for target audiences. I've seen people worry that they lead to people believing incorrect things, but that's coming at it backward - people don't get misinformed because of Fox/MSNBC, they desire to be misinformed, so they choose those networks.

    Well. With the Trayvon Martin case msnbc decided to edit the Zimmerman call to make it sound like he was profiling Trayvon Martin because he was black. Totally turning an already volatile racially sensitive case into something much worse. Making it seem like Zimmerman was a racist. With the Newton case, msnbc edited the tape to sound like gun right owners were heckling a grieving father giving a speech when they weren't. They totally distorted the truth. So, yes, they are both equally bad.

    You seem to have something against Wells, is it perhaps all those times he's fact checked you as completely and utterly wrong?

    For every story MSNBC makes up, Fox news makes up 10 things.
