    (Okay, part of that is work reasons, but I never look the show clips up online either).

    But really, for all that Phil Griffin says dayside are the real "journalists" I learn more real things watching the Primetime lineup. I hate the way MSNBC is messing with the Lean Forward ad campaign now, what with putting Andrea and this disaster of an ad out on air... Lean Forward was suppose to highlight their best political hosts talking about what matters, not random peopling lying about Democrats. Although for that matter, I don't like their in-house ads either--there's one for Ed that props him up as champion of the middle-class without saying a single thing about the working poor. (Which isn't really wrong exactly, he does support the middle class, but it overlooks a lot of his work recently.)

    I think there's a disconnect in communications/power struggle going on somewhere at that network between the people who think like Rachel/Wolff/ect and the people who think like Tweety/Reiss... (Not to mention the Lockup people. Like, really?)

    You care about something, you fight for it. You hit a wall, you push through it.

        people in MSM who does directly  focus on issues that affect them. Marketing needs to emphasize that I think.

        On a side note, you know which Lean Forward ad really  (somewhat unreasonably) annoys me? Chuck Todd. Yes dude. Brag about the access you have. Then tell everyone what the soup is on twitter. Really?
