Liberal leaning news station, MSNBC’s president was shocked to see conservative-leaning Fox News ratings beat MSNBC’s lineup on Tuesday night since Fox News added Megan Kelly to go against liberal Rachel Maddow and demands an investigation, Hot Air reported on Saturday.
Cable news channels are always looking for ways to increase viewership but according to MSNBC’s president, Phil Griffin, he says that something seems fishy on how anyone can beat liberal Rachel Maddow in her time-slot.
The report of Griffin demanding an investigation was revealed when TVNewser attended a briefing to preview the new msnbc.com.
During the briefing, TVNewser reported that Griffin said, “Monday we had a really good day in the key demographic, on the night that Fox News debuted their three shows, we either tied or beat them in those hours. Tuesday… you guys should be doing some investigations–I have never seen it in all my years of cable, same overnight, same everything and they doubled their ratings in a day? It is impossible.”
The problem with MSNBC is that their news organization has become so liberal that their reporting has been viewed as nothing more than a propaganda machine.
In November 2012, a Pew Study found that MSNBC was far more biased than Fox News, even to the point that their reporting was considered unethical.
During the 2012 presidential election, MSNBC’s reporting leading up to the election became so biased against Mitt Romney, and lacked in truthful reporting, that David Zurawik of the Baltimore Sun wrote, “That’s not a news channel. That’s a propaganda machine, and owner Comcast should probably change Phil Griffin’s title from president to high minister of information, or something equally befitting the work of a party propagandist hack in a totalitarian regime."
"You wonder how mainstream news organizations allow their reporters and correspondents to appear in such a cauldron of bias.”
