    Do they deliberately lie to misinform the viewers, otherwise known as propaganda?  NO!  They are indeed a form of infotainment, but is nothing even close to FOX News.  It is not damaging to the country like FOX and the rest of the right wing propaganda machine.

    Completely different animals.

    •  Hmmm. Lots of MSNBC defenders. (1+ / 0-)

      I hate Fox News.  So?  Doesn't mean I'm going to defend MSNBC.

        And they are probably pissed to be linked to dems by obama.
        They really want those faux viewers.

      •  Pointing out that MSNBC doesn't lie isn't exactly (1+ / 0-)

        a "defense" of MSNBC... it's just pointing out an important difference between the two...

        •  They are different. (0+ / 0-)

          Fox is dangerous propaganda with far reaching influence.  MSNBC as I said is infotainment for Obama supporters.

          •  I think you're being overly dismissive of MSNBC (0+ / 0-)

            and those (like myself) who tend to watch it over CNN or FoxNews... doesn't mean I blindly support President Obama or that I don't seek news from other sources as well...

            It's not your insult of MSNBC that's problematic, it's your generalization of those of us who watch it...

            •  Sorry I offended you. (0+ / 0-)

              It's not personal.  Just my take on MSNBC in general not specific to every viewer.
