Schultz covered the issue more often than the rest of the network's programs combined.

First they moved him from prime time then out the door. This is the same channel that let Keith Olbermann go. It is suppose to be the "liberal" channel, but one can only be liberal to a point; it is still "Corporate Media".

I had placed a story on not too long ago about how MSNBC was going to be, by choice, even less liberal.
MSNBC To Ditch Liberal Hosts And Move Away From Left Wing TV

I also recall recently on the program of Chris Matthews where all 3 of his guest and himself were having a bash Edward Snowden time. Not even one of the guest were serving as a counter to anyone. I immediately shut it off and went to my computer to send off an email to MSNBC. Without the internet we have little on TV anymore, and with the Koch Brother getting into PBS that is not a good sign there either.

The takeover is almost complete. They only need to cause a civil, race or religious war within the states and they can declare military law and they will have completed the mission.

Noted. Thanks, Judy.
I don't think this bodes well for msnbc. I think those who watched did so because it was the alternative for Fux Noise and CNN. I think their viewing audience is a younger demographic than the other 2 major cable news networks. Many will just quit watching and rely on internet news, local news or even youtube. Maybe Comcast sees the network as too expensive to continue to maintain and it will eventually disappear if profits drop enough.

Noted, I will miss him. Chuck Todd is a chump. He said it was not his job to investigate the truth.

Ed was my favorite as he showed passion for the right causes.
American TV news is, generally, not worth watching. Those folks on MSNBC gives the info behind the news headlines. Right now The only Real News comes from PBS, BBC and a couple of others. When MSNBC lets Rachel go I will not bother watching that network again.

Did everyone notice Mike M's comment---short, blatant truth? That sizes things up, as to media and communication between the planet's "We The People". That 1% of evil controlling power is having much inconvenience and can see the danger in allowing us to communicate freely. It causes unification, nonconformity, etc.---so it is getting to be too risky and difficult to totally control us, without violence and down and dirty tactics---you know---the same way the American Indian and other minorities are treated? Well, now the world's "We The People" are getting a taste of that treatment---well--more than a taste, but much hasn't come to the fore yet---like the truth about various methods of decreasing the population---but, leaves the 1% unscathed. Look up the roots of how fatal Lyme Disease was loosed on the public, and who was and is behind it---then keep researching--that's part of the reason why we can't continue to communicate freely.

Faux News needs to spend as much time canceling their bogus "program" as they do MSNBC!!

It is worthwhile to revisit Dandelion's article on this subject. One paragraph almost says it all:

" The MSNBC source said, “Going left was a brilliant strategy while it lasted and made hundreds of millions of dollars for Comcast, but now it doesn’t work anymore…The goal is to move away from left-wing TV.”

I don't know how lucrative Ed has been, but even if his show was a good revenue generator, he is the most direct and relentless host at attacking the corporate status quo. There are probably just too many Right-Wingers and corporate shills who are threatened by his work. This is a huge loss for viewers.

I couldn't afford cable, and dropped it some time ago when my daughter got me a Smart TV. Most of my TV news comes from YouTube sources, websites such as Democracy Now, and PBS. I watch some network news not so much for info, but to keep up with what the latest propaganda is, as it is being fed to the general public. I did the same with very small doses of Fox, but now that I don't have cable I almost never subject myself to it.

I had noticed David Koch named as a donor for Nova, but I hadn't been aware of the extent of his involvement with PBS:

"David Koch, interestingly enough, is a major donor to public television, and has given an estimated $23 million to PBS and its affiliates over the years. He’s a trustee of WGBH in Boston, and at the time of the “Citizen Koch” brouhaha also sat on the board of WNET in New York."

The documentary "Citizen Koch" was never aired on PBS as planned, but one doc that includes the Kochs in coverage of money and power in politics and inequality did get aired on PBS, and is still online, if anyone wants to check it out here:
