to increase their ratings significantly.

CNN leans left and Fox News leans far right. MSNBC may be trying move more into the middle and have some programming that appeals to liberals and some that appeals to conservatives.

Remember it the end run it's all about the money.

A number of people believe Morning Joe is far too conservative but it does well in the ratings.

A number of MSNBC shows set network records in 2016. Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski had a particularly strong year as Morning Joe delivered MSNBC’s biggest total viewer audience in the time period ever, and beat CNN’s New Day in both total viewers and the key A25-54 category. This marks Morning Joe’s 7th straight year topping CNN in total viewers.
