"oh god" MSNBC HAS to be the most unproffessional people!

As MSNBC led into Bobby Jindal's response tonight, you can hear an MSNBC host or producer -- which to me sounded like Keith Olbermann -- mutter "Oh God," just as the Louisiana Governor walks out.

Come on! Can't they TRY to be balanced? I read in another article about it that the 3 people MSNBC had covering it were Olberman, Mathews, and Maddow....now there's balance for ya. Now I understand that these people are commentators but good God, don't you think MSNBC shoud TRY to have someone, anyone, from the other side and at least behave like proffessionals?

and before you go all Fox News Nutty on me, they had Juan Williams on last night giving his take and he is completely an Obama man!

  • I find it funny that there is yet another case with ACTUAL proof of MSNBC being biased, but yet no one has given proof of a Fox News Report being biased.


    Fox News hires Reporters to cover these type of events, MSNBC hires Commentators.


    Case Closed.

  • MSNBC doesn't have reporters covering these things. They have commentators. That just shows their lack of professionalism.  And before anyone goes off, Fox had an actual reporter, Brett Bair.  Commentators weren't until AFTER the speech.

  • I'm sorry, but why would you watch that channel anyway?
    In answering your question though, NO they can't. It's not in them, they don't want to be professional and objective and if you don't like it then don't watch the idiots.

  • I choose not to stick my head in the sand and only listen to those who say what I want to hear, that's why I still flip by this channel. BUT I don't think that it is too much to expect them to act like professionals!

  • Its better than Fox News Channel,folks. Or Faux News.....They can boast having O'Reilly and Hannity and the other morons on air. Do you really expect anyone to take them seriously?

    O'Reilly and Hannity don't anchor the presidential address and response. They are commentators. The Today Show employs such stellar intellectuals as Kathy Lee and Hoda, while ABC has Elisabeth and Joy. Does that mean all broadcasts of NBC and ABC news proper should be ignored?
