11. Nope Nope Nope

 

That they do this for money is a right wing narrative, it is secondary.

MSNBC is supposed to be the most liberal cable news network when in fact it too pushes the right wing narratives but merely puts a progressive slant to them.

Phil Donahue was popular, he was anti-Iraq war, he got canned and Tweety who was pro Iraq war stayed. Keith Olbermann was popular, Dylan Ratigan was popular, Martin Brashear was popular, Ed Schultz was popular, they all got canned from the supposed most liberal cable news network while their ratings were high. It is pretty obvious to me that money wasn't the object for those people being fired, they were making their owners money. Those people were fired because they strayed from the corporate narrative, strayed from right wing talking points.

I'm willing to be proven wrong Hermit, so why was Keith Olbermann fired? Why was Dylan Ratigan fired who was on an epic rant going across the country explaining the evils of crony capitalism? Why? I and millions more like me faithfully watched Keith and Dylan who were making money for their corporate owners. Why?
