My biggest dismay when I switched from Cablevision to FiOS here on Long Island was the discovery that MSNBC could not be found on my dial. For whatever reason, NBC had signed an exclusivity deal with Cablevision, and I could no longer get my fix of the good Dr. Maddow, Keith Olbermann, and the like. It was incredibly frustrating. Well, my troubles will be ending very soon--MSNBC is coming to FiOS!

According to this quick bulletin from Long Island Business News,

...the standard definition version of [MSNBC] will hit Long Island, and parts of the Bronx, Brooklyn, Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties. The channel will be available in parts of New Jersey on Feb. 11....A Verizon spokesman said the high definition version of the channel will launch at a later date.

Woohoo! Finally, I will have a choice for informed opinion beyond the Faux exploding heads. Finally, my TiVo will be filled again with wise words and worst people, and I will be able to get my fill of Rachel Maddow's Ph.D and mixology expertise! Finally, I can wholeheartedly recommend FiOS for all types of information, from digital to political.

Thanks, FiOS, for making this happen. {ProfJonathan}

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
