NewsBusters’ Noel Sheppard writes about a huge conlfict of interest MSNBC allowed Mika Brzezinski to walk in to…

As NewsBusters reported, President Obama praised Mika Brzezinski Friday after she participated in a White House forum regarding the President’s performance on women’s issues.

CNN’s Howard Kurtz on Sunday’s Reliable Sources took issue with this asking his guests, “Should an MSNBC anchor be moderating a White House event and talking about celebrating what the administration has accomplished?” (video follows with transcript and commentary):

When a network takes a talent and puts them front and center in a position that serves an administration’s message delivery system, that’s a huge huge conflict of interest. But it seems to be par for the course in an increasingly POV centric MSNBC world.
