Much has been said (or has it?) about the media’s so-called bias favoring John McCain (at some times) and Barack Obama (most of the time). While some people call it “whining” (when on the other side) there’s pretty much no denying that MSNBC has really out-Foxed even the fairest and most balanced networks of all time.
During the DNC, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell blasted the coverage of the primaries by the major news networks, but singled out NBC, saying that the network’s cable news channel was “the official network of the Obama campaign.”
What’s kinda sad and pathetic is that in NBC’s defense, Tom Brokaw said that Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews were “not the only voices” of MSNBC, which may have been correct, were it not for the fact that Olbermann and Matthews are the two broadcasters prominently featured all over MSNBC’s buses and makeshift studio in front of Union station.
Just look at the following promo image featuring Olbermann’s show:
I’m relieved to hear that Olbermann and Matthews have been stripped of their host duties for election night coverage—maybe now NBC can save face and not become the left-wing copy-cat of Fox News.
