Somebody book this guy on Comedy Central:
MSNBC vp primetime programming Bill Wolff maintains that his network covers Palin because sheâ€™s newsworthy. Period. End of story.
Wolff called it “nonsense” that MSNBC is driven by politics or even profits when it comes to how much airtime it devotes to Palin.
“MSNBC does not have a political agenda. The idea that weâ€™re beholden to one side or the other is ridiculous,” he says. “And if Sarah Palin is so good for business, why would we want to destroy her? We tell the truth. We hold up a mirror and say, ‘This is whatâ€™s going on.’ Weâ€™re not so crass to think that sheâ€™s good for business, therefore we’ll talk about her.”
Sure, Ed Schultz’s Republican-free zone is the least agenda-driven program I’ve ever seen.
Because when you think Schultz, Maddow, Matthews and Olbermann (formerly) and his current replacement with a name that sounds like somebody trying to order steak tartare with a mouthful of marbles, you think “no political agenda.”
