More MSNBC Intramural Wrassling

Via Ben Smith.

I really hope that some MSNBC exec is watching this right now going, “Wait, we’ve got Rachel Maddow, Keith Olbermann and Mika Brzeznski. Can we just fire the rest of these unprofessional idiots?”

  1. Gotta disagree with you here, Ned. After all the rapturous media swooning following Sarah Palin’s despicable speech (clearly motivated by Republican intimidation), I found this TV tussle refreshing. I thought Chris Mathews did a superb job speaking truth to Buchanan, who, after all, was one of the authors of the great body of Orthogonian literature. I just happen to be 450 pages into “Nixonland” right now, and it is a very enlightening time to be reading it. Palin’s speech was right out of the Nixon/Agnew tradition in all of its smearing, trivial and profoundly dishonest glory.

  2. I agree. I’d chalk this one up a success for Matthews.
