Thanks to the tough investigative work done by The Hollywood Reporter, we can finally clarify that MSNBC is apolitical and they do not have nefarious reasons for focusing so much negative coverage on the former Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
In a story titled, "Sarah Palin: MSNBC's Obsession With Her" the cable channel's primetime programming veep and executive producer of the Rachel Maddow Show, Bill Wolff was interviewed for the story and schools us on the truth about the misunderstood (and underwatched) cable channel;
"MSNBC does not have a political agenda. The idea that we’re beholden to one side or the other is ridiculous."
Oh sure, MSNBC does have a morning show co-host who regularly reads talking points from the White House on-air.
The channel also has an avowed Socialist in The Last Word host Lawrence O'Donnell.
Ed Schultz openly professes that he is a Liberal, recently adding the word to the opening titles of his daily radio show and just yesterday proudly pointing it out to his listeners.
Ms. Maddow's loyalties are obvious in this 2008 election recap.
And finally, MSNBC's elder statesman, Chris Matthews has given us hundreds of statements on his opinion of the GOP and their policies, this one highlights his lack of appreciation for Sarah Palin, calling her "frightening."
MSNBC, Agenda-Free. Indeed.
