MSNBC: Bastions of Journalism

I feel bad for some of the people over at MSNBC, as some of their reporters are fantastically good. But, they then proceed to waste their time on such trifling issues as Hillary's non-cleavage. Media Matters, a group that spends their paid, working hours watching the media so I don't have to, noted that the channel spend almost 24 minutes over the course of the day reporting this story. If this doesn't sound like a lot to you, let me flesh it out across the other channels. The next closest channel was CNN with about 4 minutes...during its political program The Situation Room. And, the only reason they covered it there was because Wolf Blitzer is a closet perv who wanted to see the C-SPAN2 feed on his big screens (no pun intended) in the studio. Contrast this 24 minutes to Fox News who didn't cover the story AT ALL! Not once. Zero. Zilch. How do you expect me to take a channel like this seriously? How?!
