MSNBC’s ratings are in the toilet this month, and many of us gleefully anticipate the day that someone decides to flush. I actually could watch the network when Pat Buchanan was a regular, but since they decided to can him it has become an even more obvious and transparent Democratic Party propaganda machine, an insufferable echo chamber of left-wing elitists (and Al Sharpton) congratulating one another, confirming each other’s biases, and smirking at the rest of the country.
But can’t you say the same about FOX News and the Republicans? Sure. Well, maybe not. Believe it or not, FOX News actually does welcome and allow opposite points of view in a way MSNBC hasn’t for quite some time now. O’Reilly and Hannity usually have some leftist on the show to debate with. When was the last time anyone who represented even lite, mainstream conservatism was allowed any time on MSNBC? FOX is undoubtedly partisan, but they usually have at least one person on a panel who disagrees.
