You want to hear some irony? Back in 2001 MSNBC tried giving Phil Donohue a show. Fox had started staking out the right and making big ratings gains
against CNN. I remember being excited that we were getting a "star" when he came in our studio for the first time.
Phil Griffin who was not yet president decided Donohue was too liberal. Next thing I know we took a complete 180 and tried to out FOX, Fox with Pyscho
man Savage who by his first week got yanked for saying something completely over the top.
I left in 2003 to work at CNN and but continued consider msnbc my network eventhough I had worked at fox and was told By MSNBC that I could either
screw my friend max Schindler who got me the job there through his crew agency and sign directly with msnbc or quit. Everybody else took the gig but I
said go f yourselves.
In the end, the host I admired most for his objectiveness and willingness to concede valid points contrary to his personal beliefs, chris Matthews,
sold out his principles and drank the koolaid in the name of branding and ratings. By the time the Obama penis loving parade was in full swing I would
sooner vomit than consider Rachel
Maddow anything remotely close to "news" and recognized a pathetic exercise in branding for what it was.
After watching that clip, I'm terribly saddened for the loss of phil Donohue for what could have been. His was the most rational and well made
argument for Ron Paul I have ever heard. God bless him. He is a true talent.
