MSNBC to Air One-Hour Bridgegate Special
There isn’t enough coverage of Chris Christie and the lane closures leading to the George Washington Bridge over at MSNBC, so the network is devoting an entire one-hour special to the story tonight.
Mediaite notes that Chris Hayes will host the special at 11 p.m. on Monday, in which he will interview individuals close to the situation and report on the latest developments.
The one-hour special looks to be an extension of what Hayes’s 8 p.m. show, All In, has been over the last few days. Since the story broke last Wednesday, he has dedicated nearly all of his daily show to “Bridgegate” by bringing on several local, state, and national Democrats to discuss the controversy. On Thursday night, the entire show focused solely on Christie and the lane closures. During his usual 8 p.m. show, Hayes will co-host a separate special on the 50th anniversary of the War on Poverty with Maria Shriver
