When Megyn Kelly got partially beaten by MSNBC in the ratings on the first night of her new show, the network celebrated. When Kelly surged so far ahead on her second night that she beat every single other show on cable news in the crucial A25-54 category, MSNBC president Phil Griffin insisted that it couldn’t be real, called for an investigation and said he had complained to Nielsen about the numbers.
Nielsen did an investigation. The results were…pretty much the same.
I’d like an investigation into how MSNBC stays on the air with such consistently lousy ratings. Do they get subsidies from the DNC?
