That experiment appears to be over.
After months of accusations of political bias and simmering animosity between MSNBC and its parent network NBC, the channel decided over the weekend that the NBC News correspondent and MSNBC host David Gregory would anchor news coverage of the coming debates and election night. Mr. Olbermann and Mr. Matthews will remain as analysts during the coverage, and for some reason still have a job. Question - If they are so concerned with their 'bias' over news gathering - shouldn't they just pink slipped the two of 'em?
The change — which comes in the home stretch of the long election cycle — is a direct result of tensions associated with the channel’s perceived shift to the political left. Uh, perceived shift? You mean MSDNC?
