MSNBC Layoffs

The Drudge Report reports that MSNBC is giving out seasons beatings of a sort -- employees are finding that tis the season to be sorry: layoffs.

What? Jesse Ventura's America-- the hungry man's Savage Nation -- is not garnering those premium sponsors? Sheesh.

MSNBC, like Michael Jackson, has identity issues. It is not conservative or liberal and isn't aware that reruns of Matt Lauer's Headliners and Legends is not the way to rivet important demographics to the tube, unless the networkette thinks viewers are interested in watching his hairline recede; which, incidentally, we are not.

How long before Microsoft realizes that this experiment in television has gone horribly awry and divests? The Corsair gives it nine months, all told.
