Where the freak were the Reuters scribes: We’ll offer one last thought about MSNBC’s conduct this week:
We’ll offer our thought in the form of a question. Where were the Reuters reporters?
Last Friday, Reuters posted this detailed report by Andy Sullivan and Greg Roumeliotis. Amy Goodman, a serious progressive, interviewed Sullivan on Democracy Now (click here).
We wish she had done a better job. If anything, we think she tried to cover too much ground in too short a time.
But at MSNBC, the hosts sit around killing time from 6-11 PM each night. (Excluding Friday, when the channel starts its weekend life-in-prison shows at 10 PM sharp.) Where were Sullivan and Roumeliotis? Why weren’t the reporters brought on the air to explain the things they had learned?
You got the old shoeshine from Rachel last night. The child is paid $2 million per year. She tries to hand you plenty of laughs, and a good tribal feel, in exchange for that big sack of cash.
Is that really what you want? Because that’s what you’re getting sold there.
Not the first time: In 2009, MSNBC never tried to tell you why health care costs two to three times as much in this country, on a per person basis, as it does everywhere else.
Question: Why do these overpaid corporate clowns give you so little real info?
