    It's not the corporatists.  (Clear Channel Media is owned by partisan Republicans.  That didn't stop them from bulking up on liberal talk radio when they thought they could make money at it.)

    MSNBC has to deal with NBC news.  NBC news is populated by people like Brian Williams, who is profoundly conservative and profoundly a creature of the Beltway.  (He's a college dropout who became a lobbyist before he became a talking head on TV.  What does that tell you?

    I'm not certain about this, but I was under the impression that when Microsoft (the "MS" in MSNBC) dropped out, they did so because they regarded NBC News as incompetent -- they weren't happy about the downscale conservative bias still present at the time, thought that's why it was losing money, and cut their losses.
