Unlike over-the-air broadcast networks, cable channels have two streams of revenue: subscriber fees and advertising. Roberts said that 82% of the operating income of the new entity would come from cable channels. Five of NBC Universal's cable networks -- USA, Syfy, Bravo, CNBC and MSNBC -- generate $200 million a year or more each in operating income.

I watch MSNBC as often as FOX. They do the same damned thing. The problem came from the government(who holds contracts with the parent company of MSNBC, i.e. GE) creating a media wing for themselves. The Neo-Cons did the same thing with Fox during the bush admin.
What we need here is LESS government involvement.

Fox news should be shut down. (In fairness, so should all of the other mainstream networks).
Purposefully reporting news incorrectly as often as they do should be a crime.
However, I would be appeased if they simply had to change their name from "Fox News" to "Fox Entertainment" and there was a banner flashing across the top of the screen at all times that read "Fox Entertainment does not accurately report information. Any and all statements made by Fox Entertainment should be assumed to be false or incorrect."
