MSNBC Debuts New Series Slamming Justice Dept Under Bush

Speaking of MSNBC, check this out:
MSNBC's Live with Dan Abrams (which is soon getting a name change) will premiere a new series tonight called "Bush League Justice." Abrams writes on the MSNBC blog that the idea for the series "stems from my increasing frustration and outrage over how the Bush Administration has politicized the usually apolitical Justice Department."
"Bush League Justice" marks the latest in a push by MSNBC to take the offensive against the Bush administration, with Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, and the once possible hiring of Rosie O'Donnell. Jacques Steinberg of The New York Times wrote last month about MSNBC's "three-hour block of nighttime which the White House takes a regular beating."
"Bush League Justice" will air Monday-Thursday at 9pmET.
That "White House takes a regular beating" comment, not so much. I wouldn't put Tweety and Dan Abrams in that category.

But I do appreciate any attempt by Abrams to draw attention to the beating Democracy has taken at the hands of this horrendous administration.
