Or the worst or the best depending on your point of view.
Spotlight on the Media writer David Zurawik writes that with MSNBC's new hiring of David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs that cable news outlet is now "worse" than Fox. Now he did preface this remark with "MSNBC has long been as bad as Fox News when it comes to ideological bias". But hen added:
"The cable channel that flies under the banner of NBC News is now all but a bona fide organ of state propaganda, an information channel that speaks in the same dominant voice as the folks running the government–and tries to mask what it is up to."
IMO, MSNBC has long been far worse, but I do have a bias. Zurawik continues:
"What is this if not exactly the spin Team Obama seemed to be working on all week? And the White House doesn’t even have to bring in a bunch of out-of-town anchormen for quickie interviews with Obama so that they can carry his message back to their local audiences in the heartland.
Now the message can go forth from the president’s mouth straight to our ears–via Axelrod, the so-called analyst, and MSNBC, the so-called news channel."
