MSNBC thinks they are a viable option to Fox, a force for progressivism, but the people they have hosting shows are incompetent. There's a good opportunity to present thoughtful commentary, but it appears all the hosts are reacting to Fox rather than creating something new and enlightening.
MSNBC lacks orginality and creativity, they eulate what they think as been successful at Fox, and who thought of "Leaning Forward"? With their ratins suffering and certain shake-ups inevitable, leaning forward is not a good idea.
There is no credibility left -- Olbermann, Matthews, Schultz --these guys are irrelevant -- it's like a satirist writes their material, portraying the buffoonery of the left. All three together can't mach one Sheperd Smith! I jest.
Morning Joe is interesting sometimes, but how many times can a viewer listen to how Joe Scarborough did everything right while he was in congress? Not many more -- I can tell you from personal experience. How many times can we listen to the same guests say the same things over and over? They look exhausted -- Mike Barnacle needs a vacation, or some crack -- Willie Geist gave up long ago trying to say anything interesting. And how many times can we suffer the lemon-face contortions from Mika when Obama is criticized? Is Harold Ford blackmailing an executive? What else explains his repeat appearances?
Chuck Todd and Savannah Guthrie are unconvincing as objective reporters -- it's obvious they've been smitten with State power and head pats from Valerie Jarret and the gang of Obamabots. But they know the White House's lunch menu -- and they are sooooo cute.
Now they have Lawrence (Trotsky) O'Donnell declaring his socialist pride, calling all liberals wimps for not admitting their socialist beliefs. O'Donnell is a sincere idiot -- you have to give him that -- not very useful, but sincere.
Then there's the man of the people -- Dylan Ratigan -- oh, I can't go on, it's too painful.
