Pew Research has discovered that MSNBC is far more partisan then Fox News is by far. That's really not a shock to me and others who know how MSNBC is. According to Pew Research "From August 27 through October 21, 71 percent of MSNBC's coverage of Mitt Romney this year was negative, far outperforming Fox News's negative coverage of President Barack Obama, which came in at 46 percent, according to a new survey by the Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism. The negative-to-positive ratio on MSNBC was roughly 23-to-1; the negative-to-positive ratio on Fox News was 8-to-1."
MSNBC's slogan is "learn forward
". Obama's campaign slogan is "forward
", go figure I know. Another name for forward is "progress". So what if the word forward in MSNBC's slogan was replaced with the word "progress", it would then say "lean progress", well that doesn't make much sense right? Exactly, but add the letters "ive" to the word progress, and what do you have"? You have LEAN PROGRESSIVE, AKA LEAN LIBERAL.
For as much as the hard left tries to paint Fox News as the news network of the vast right wing conspiracy, it simply doesn't hold true. Fox News actually has more liberal news commentators then MSNBC has republican or conservative news commentators. Joe Scarbough is a moderate republican, and, S.E Cupp is really the only conservative on MSNBC. I can go down the laundry list of liberals on Fox News. It's one thing for me and those who are politically astute to understand that MSNBC is quasi news outlet, but when Saturday Night Live knows it and makes fun of them for their bias, their bias isn't going unnoticed outside of the realm of those who typically do not follow politics.SNL did a extremely funny skit on how the MSNBC pundits reacted to the first Romney-Obama debate, h/t daily caller.
