Written By mista sense on Wednesday, May 21, 2008 | 7:17 AM
Cable Game ace Brian Stelter reports, you decide. But here's the gist:
Critics are increasingly citing MSNBC for what they say is left-leaning partisan political coverage and commentary. More and more, NBC shares staff, office space and an identity with MSNBC, exposing the news division to complaints about opinionated cable hosts like Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews.
And as a kicker, Brian adds:
MSNBC’s critics are not limited to conservatives. Aides to Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign have privately expressed a different grievance: namely, that MSNBC hosts show favoritism toward Barack Obama.
It seems that NBC/MSNBC have placed a pretty big bet on Barack Obama.
