Keith Who? Rachel Who? Ed Who? No one knows MSNBC’s most popular hosts

by editor on September 28, 2010

If MSNBC’s executives are glass-half-full kind of guys, they look at the results of this new survey and say, “Hey, look at all the growth potential we have.”

If they’re glass-half-empty kind of guys, they say, “We are miserable friggin’ failures, we’re lucky we still have jobs, and the hosts we’ve hired couldn’t attract flies to shit. And come to think of it, that’s really a pretty good analogy.”

MSNBC hosts are like the Gong Show's Unknown Comic. No one knows who they are. No one cares who they are.

The results show the growing influence that 24-hour cable news has on shaping the political consciousness, despite the fact that network newscasts still draw many multiples of the number of viewers of even the highest-rated cable news shows.…Fox’s opinionated personalities were also rated as having the greatest positive impact on the political debate in the country. Bill O’Reilly was rated as having, by far, the greatest positive impact, with 49 percent of respondents rating him positively, and 32 percent negatively.

…MSNBC’s personalities were largely ranked as unknown by respondents: 70 percent said they had never heard of Ed Schultz, 55 percent said they had never heard of Rachel Maddow and 42 percent said they had never heard of Keith Olbermann.

We would like to nominate the TV remote control as the greatest invention in history. Without it, someone might have actually lingered on MSNBC long enough to be familiar with Olbermann, Maddow and Schultz by mistake. With it, they get the anonymity they so richly deserve.

Maddow has a black man sized c0ck. So that counts as about 3/5 a black person right?

YT, I have pounded Rachel Maddow as hard as ANYONE here-so to speak-but that post was actually offensive on a couple of levels. Clean it up just a bit…

Dear Editor:

Please watch out: YT could be a left-wing plant posting herein to make IHTM.com appear racist.

Of course, I’m probably parroting something your brilliant minds have already thought of, but thanks for letting me point out this possibility.

I’m with danybhoy, his/her post was offensive.

…& do you how hard it is to offend me? It ain’t easy.

If I were a liberal, I would be offended that you are difficult to offend. But since I’m not a liberal, I agree with you danybhoy. There are plenty of negative points to make about Maddow without lowering ourselves to comments like YT’s.

Bat-d-d, you mustn’t say that about PMSnbc. Look at all those talking heads that we are NOT paying unemployment to! Remember Olbermann was on Sunday night football. (Once he came on, I gave up half-times like I did for the entire MNF broadcasts with Tony Cornhusker.) I don’t know who has less viewers, PMSnbc, or the cartoon network. (last I checked, CN had the most viewers of all of the Turner properties…)

The only “air time” these clowns get is when Beck, Limbaugh and the right-minded blogs give them exposure

Even sh_t has some value, it makes great fertiliser for example. MSNBC nada, just a waste of oxygen and electrons.
