Does MSNBC see its role as providing viewers with news? Or just reinforcing their perception that Democrats are good and Republicans are bad?
They just did a segment on Sarah Palin’s book deal that could be measured in milliseconds, in which Courtney Hazlett, who is apparently MSNBC’s “entertainment columnist,” was asked whether she thought Palin’s memoir will be a success. She answered no, but said moments later that “it might sell a lot of copies.”
So success would be defined as what, the Pulitzer for Autobiography?
