Demo’s Beef With MSNBC Over Broward Speech





MSNBC’s Ed Schultz was forced to cancel his speech to Broward Democrats last month because the network’s rules forbid broadcasters from addressing partisan fund raisers.

But MSNBC’s Joe “Morning Joe” Scarborough is speaking to New Hampshire Republicans next month.

Not fair, complains the Democratic National Committee.

  1. Real Democrat says:

    Another mistake by Mitch Ceasar. He should have known this invitation would be cancelled.

  2. Cable Fan says:

    Morning Joe is the hottest show on MSNBC and station executives are not going to piss off their star. Ed Schultz is an old, fat nothing with no audience.

    @Cable Fan

    When you make shit up in your head, how long does it have to leave your mouth before it becomes reality to you?

    Morning Joe’s numbers are THE WORST on MSBNC

    Morning Joe 288
    Ed Show 514
    Poltics Nation 641
    Hardball 1029
    Chris Hayes 750
    Rachel Maddow 852
    Last Word 648


    The interesting thing about the “big” cable talk shows is how few people watch them. A few hundred thousand out of the entire nation! They are all talking to a handful of political junkies.

    Also, notice in the link you provided how the audience skews old.

    CNBC is a different animal. The financial show during the day has a small, very monied audience of investors which is desirable to a certain type of advertiser.

    What is a MSNBC?

  5. Chaz/Timmy Stevens and the Beer Pole Thingy says:

    Mister Timmy Stevens:
    The above poster referred to MJ being the “hottest” show. Not the highest rated.
    Keep playing with the beer pole thingy.
    You got your 15 mins., now go fill out your application for fry cook at Wendy’s.

    I’m always amazed at how jealous people are of me …

    Then I remind myself to be compassionate, as your life must really suck.

    And thanks for reminding everyone that Festivus v3.0 is right around the corner!
