Individuals visiting MSNBC.com over the weekend will be greeted with a new splash page billing the new website as “what progressives have been waiting for.”
“Want a sneak peek at the new msnbc.com?” the splash page asks. “It’s what progressives have been waiting for.”
On the other side of the splash page, visitors are told to visit NBC News for “breaking news and reporting.”
Neither a spokesperson for MSNBC or NBC Universal was available for comment to TheBlaze Sunday morning.
The conservative leaning news-outlet The Daily Caller said the language “strongly suggests MSNBC.com will be becoming a hub for progressive ideology and abandoning any semblance of objectivity.”
In July 2012, MSNBC started redirecting users to NBCNews.com, after the end of the relationship between NBC and Microsoft. The site is reportedly set to officially launch at a later date as an independent website for cable channel MSNBC.
