Try not to laugh

MSNBC head, Rachel Maddow, say MSNBC is "less political" than Fox.

"We're less about ideology than Fox is," said [MSNBC president Phil] Griffin.

"The idea that there's any equivalency between us and Fox News..." Rachel Maddow said. "Fox is a political experiment. Imagine them having somebody as liberal as Joe Scarborough is conservative doing their whole morning? It doesn't make sense."

In other news, Pope Benedict is Jewish.

UPDATE: Maddow made her claims above ... yet admits to never having seen a FNC show!

At work yesterday someone announced that Comcast was launching an all-Obama channel. (A href="http://www.politico.com/blogs/michaelcalderone/0109/Comcast_launchs_allObama_channel.html">See here.) I said, "Isn't that what MSNBC's for?"

They accused me of being a Fox News (I'm not), but no one really denied it either.

If MSNBC were a real news outlet, I'd ask what qualifications Rachel MadCow has to have a show.

However, given that they have turned an emotionally unstable second-rate sports reporter into a the crown-jewel of their political commentary line-up, I realize that there are no qualifications at MSNBC except for ideology.
