Banfield Fallout Last week I reported on Ashleigh Banfield's presentation at Kansas State University. Apparently the people running the show at MSNBC did not take kindly to her criticisms of the cable news biz. Read more about it here.
The hypocrisy of MSNBC is astounding. Shock-radio host Michael Savage is given carte blanche to say whatever he pleases from MSNBC's platform, including personal attacks against Banfield herself. But Banfield's eminently reasonable criticisms come in for condemnation.
MSNBC has been veering hard to the right in recent months, but their ratings continue to plummet. Banfield is the one touch of class remaining at that miserable channel, so it is unlikely that she has much of a future there.
