The progressive bias of MSNBC mocked by "SNL"?!

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.

Let's see if I can name some of the liberal staff members from Fox News:
*Alan Colmes-Sean Hannity's old partner.

*Juan Williams

*Bob Beckel-I've seen this guy lose his cool on Hannity's show more than once. I remember one time he exploded at fellow guest Jennifer Stefano about when she claimed that the Head Start program does not work, and without realizing it that they were back on the air, he shouted the F-word out loud when he claims that she doesn't know what she is talking about.

I guess that's why Fox News' logo is "Fair and Balanced".

It is what it is...informative commentary rather than informative news...from both FOX AND MSNBC!

When President Obama won four years ago Tyrone I told you I wouldn't gloat. I know you're hurting, so I'll keep it to myself....

Naaah... I gotta take a small shot...

Did the site where you got the "Gone Clock" include a reset button?

MSNBC doesn't claim to be fair and balanced. Fox News does, big difference. MSNBC not only doesn't claim to be fair and balanced but they outright say they are liberal. Dr. Maddow and Ed Schultz have both identified themselves as liberal on the air. And the station is at this time running a commercial for their Saturday shows and calling it "Progressive Saturday"
