Meet The New Boss…Same As The Old Boss?
Today MSNBC’s 3-6 news block debuted (Note: the 5 is going to Chuck Todd soon enough). It was Luke Russert at 3 and Ayman Mohyeldin at 4. So far so good.
But then the 5 came along with Jonathan Capehart anchoring a straight newscast. Capehart may be an accomplished editor but his current roles of being on the Washington Post Editorial Board and as a POV contributor for MSNBC should have precluded his selection. Here is MSNBC trying to do a reset back to news and on its first day of the new schedule it throws an opinion person into the newscast.
Programs come and they go. So does talent. But some things, it seems, never change…at least not for Phil Griffin. He’s still clinging to POV blending with news apparently.
