MSNBC has become the MTV of news

Instead of its original 24-hour news format, it's become almost all opinion and reality shows.


Pew's annual comprehensive State of the News Media found that opinion and commentary fill 85 percent of the airtime on MSNBC. The network only devotes 15 percent to "factual reporting," according to the Pew study.

To conduct the study, Pew looked at a half-hour of daytime programming for the first five months of 2012, along with the first five minutes of the "general news-focused programs" in primetime. To ensure that the programming was representative, Pew also studied a full three days of network programming later in 2012.

By comparison, Fox News' programming featured 55 percent commentary and opinion and 45 percent "factual reporting." CNN was the only network to feature more reporting than commentary, by a 54-46 margin.

There's also a difference between "reporting" and "very selective and biased reporting." Both Fox and MSNBC are excellent at the latter.

I'll run my mouth full speed and I don't care what anybody thinks. Why are my ratings always in the tank?
