"We made the decision to give the viewers what they come to MSNBC night in and night out for -- Keith, Chris, Rachel, Ed, Lawrence and Gene, who's joined us for election nights for the past several years," an MSNBC spokesman said.
Fox News, rather than having top-rated dipshits like Bill O'Reilly or Glenn Beck anchor election coverage, went instead with Bret Baier and Megyn Kelly. But the network still gave ample airtime to its stable of conservative commentators, including Karl Rove, Sean Hannity and Sarah Palin.
Fox News drew its own share of criticism from liberals for its 2010 election night coverage. Some pointed out the sheer number of potential Republican presidential candidates on Fox News' payroll, the network's positive coverage of the tea party movement since last year, and owner Rupert Murdoch's large donations to Republican candidates and causes this year.So fuck you. Honestly.
