DRUDGE REPORT 2005�: "MSNBC TO CHANGE ITS NAME, THE DRUDGE REPORT HAS LEARNED. THE ALL-NEWS CABLE NETWORK, WHICH WAS FOUNDED AS JOINT EFFORT BETWEEN MICROSOFT AND NBC, WILL SIMPLY BECOME 'THE NBC NEWS CHANNEL'"
Oh yeah! That will make all the difference in the world! The reason most people don't watch MSNBC is because of the name of the network... Now it all makes sense.
You know, if NBC really wanted to do something different and really wanted to make people watch their network, they'd move the headquarters to St. Louis, or Des Moines. Have the central focus of the news come organically from the center of the country instead of from New York. Right now, they're just a carbon copy of CNN and all the other networks. It's all the same news with the same point of view and the same voice.
Why not have the news come from the heartland of the country? These days with satellites and High-speed everything, there's really no reason why the networks have to be located in NYC. This way, they would not be able to help but be influenced by their environment. THEN they'd be different and worth watching.
