The wrong business model to emulate

I've already noted how dismaying I find it to see MSNBC attempting to emulate Fox News, but Ed Brayton notes another example of the Foxification of MSNBC in its hire of Ed Schulz, who recently advocated for voter fraud.

I'm not sure how many people with journalism backgrounds work in executive type functions at MSNBC, but I must wonder how many of them are bothered by the fact that their network presents a block of primetime programming from 6pm all the way through the mid-am morning that insists entirely of commentary/opinion and no straight news. A strange thing for any entity designating itself a "news network."
