Cable Newser Goes into Melt Down Mode

Have anyone been following the interpersonal dramatics between the personalities over on MSNBC? No. Of course you haven’t. That’s part of the problem. But for Keith Olbermann’s show, nobody watches MSNBC, which is why there is all this internal strife. Olbermann runs the channel, he’s making a push to make it the liberal version of FOX, and the whole fucking network is about to fall in on itself. Olbermann hates Chris Mathews, Joe Scarborough hates Olbermann, and everyone hates David Gregory (for good reason — he’s a tool). It’s one happy fucking family over there. It’s gotten so bad, even, that MSNBC’s president has had to come out and try to clear the air.

“Look, it happens,” Griffin said. “Everyone is working hard here, and people are passionate about their feelings, and this is the rough-and-tumble world of politics. It wasn’t the first time and probably won’t be the last. The main thing is, this does not define us. Don’t make more of this than it is.”

The problem, really, is all that internal tension is starting to spill over, causing on-air tiffs. Check that clip above, at around the 3:00 mark, when things this morning on “Morning Joe” began to get a little too tense. If you look closely, you can actually see Joe Scarborough’s forehead veins pop. And then, at the 5:30 minute mark, I do believe that Scarborough reveals some HR problems that he’s been having with David Shuster.

It’s all very awkward. And now, to be honest, I kind of want to watch MSNBC for something other than Olbermann (who, despite being an amazing on-air talent, is by all accounts, kind of a douche).

Am I the only one who likes David Gregory? He seems like he's a really nice guy in person, and he's always enjoyable to watch when he's a guest on the Daily Show.
