Attn: MSNBC Management / Producers
Does the “MS” in MSNBC stand for Major Schmucks? Because that’s who has to be in charge of your programming decisions! It’s bad enough that you guys totally blow off actual news on weekends to fill your air-time with morbid specials on prison life, dead celebrities, incestuous kittens, and unsolved murder-mysteries from the heartland, but to completely miss the boat on what was finally some good news in this ever-darkening world we all inhabit is completely pathetic!
Those 33 Chilean miners had been entombed beneath the surface since Coal Miner’s Daughter was in movie theatres, and just as they’re finally rescuing the last lucky bastard, you idiots don’t cut to it live? Look, we love Rachel Maddow, and even think Olbermann sports nice eye-wear, but for them to not immediately switch to the final rescue as it’s unfolding is fairly ridiculous. Can we not get some happy endings from you guys?!
Even the lying tards over at Fox *News were covering the San Jose Mine live! Sean-fucking-Hannity wisely deferred to the story, and not just so he could do more push-ups before being back on-camera.
You so-called producers could learn a thing or two from one of your competitors. No, not CNN (although even they covered the final miner’s safe return), but that other cable channel that beats your ass every quarter like a red-headed step-network. Seriously, pay better attention to a couple of things that don’t have to do with politics! Like good news.
We’re exhausted with the polls, greed, lies, and kittens, and we need the occasional feel-good story, gawd-dammit – even if it comes from another nation!
Let Down and Cranky,
Desperate Viewers in Need of Warm Fuzzies and Rainbows
