“Meet the Press” had its highest total viewer delivery since April this past Sunday, averaging 3,359,000 total viewers for David Gregory’s most convincing victory in months.
I hope the folks at MSNBC are paying attention. MSNBC’s core audience are progressives, they are its audience. Just like ClusterFox’s key viewers are Right-wingers. There was a poll last week showing the politics of viewers who watched each network, and most Dems and Independents watch either MSNBC or CNN, and a majority of Repgs. watched Fox. What more do they need to know? MSNBC should stop trying to pretend that they offer both sides (i.e. Morning Joe, Pat Buchanan ad nauseam). They should embrace their inner progressive nature, and just try to please their viewers. I guarantee if they gave Lawrence O’Donnell his own show, and replaced David Gregory with Rachel Maddow, their ratings would skyrocket. Please MSNBC … stick to what you know best. Pretty please….. 🙂

I’ve been thinking about this: we expect it from the wingnuts but why do people on the left feel so freed-up to go so aggressively (and rudely) after the President? I’m wondering if it comes from the notion that this guy “better do what he’s told” kind of mentality.
