extreme left wing ?[edit]

Does it advocate the banning of private property and placing the means of production in the hands of the workers? RaoulDuke 03:36, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Last I heard, yes. Was my edit any less accurate than what it replaced? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:40, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
Yes, but replace workers with the state. Talsley (talk) 17:59, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Martin/Zimmerman case controversy[edit]

Would it be appropriate to add a section about MSNBC's infamous manipulative editing of the George Zimmerman police tapes to help stoke controversy? 74.8.88.191 (talk) 21:37, 4 December 2012 (UTC)

Do you have documentation that doesn't have an axe to grind? EVDebs (talk) 08:42, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
I doubt it would be difficult to find; this was a moderately well-publicized incident, if never quite a scandal, and is even mentioned on the RW Trayvon Martin page. (Though, uh, might it be worth pointing out the double standard that plenty of articles on conservative figures link to overtly editorializing articles?) 74.8.91.43 (talk) 01:57, 6 December 2012 (UTC)

Personalities[edit]

Is there a reason for listing personal info such as religion or sexual orientation? Seems a bit weird. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 22:15, 25 November 2013 (UTC)

I thought it enhanced the whole "we're a rather diverse group of lefties over here" clause. If it's thought to be inappropriate, then I respect the choice. Zero (talk) 03:34, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
Don't worry about it. I get why you did it but decided to remove most of it anyway. I left it that Sharpton is a Baptist minister though. ClothCoat (talk) 03:37, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

Pleasantly surprised[edit]

A shockingly even-handed take on MSNBC from rationalwiki. There is hope. Burkean (talk) 03:49, 16 August 2014 (UTC)


NBC's RFID Prediction[edit]

NBC has predicted that RFID chips will be implanted in Americans by 2017 (Gave truthorfiction link, cause Youtube videos on this are nuts)

Is this worthy of adding to the article?--サトセレ (talk) 18:13, 20 November 2014 (UTC)

MSNBC Reception[edit]

The article claims that ratings are up at MSNBC since Phil Griffin took control of the helm, without giving a source. However, a simple Google search: "Cable news ratings" contradicts that claim. In fact, ratings are down across aboard for MSNBC. See (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/12/30/fox-news-cable-news-ratings_n_6398220.html). Slings and Arrows (talk) 01:32, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Lawrence O'Donnell[edit]

According to this article it says that Jon Stewart compared Chris Matthews to Bill O'Reilly and Lawrence O'Donnell to Sean Hannity; I am having trouble finding this comparison anywhere. I believe that the Chris Matthews comparison is likely, but I haven't heard anything bad about Lawrence O'Donnell though I don't know much about him.--Owlman (talk) 05:20, 1 March 2016 (UTC)
