Watch: Comcast-Owned MSNBC Covers Comcast-Time Warner Merger by Praising CEO

After Joe Scarborough acknowledges that Comcast provides his paycheck, he bizarrely notes how successful the corporation is.

Editor's note: Each week, Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting (FAIR) takes on the media's biggest blunders. This week on FAIR TV, they take a look at how MSNBC, which is owned by Comcast, covered the Comcast-Time Warner merger (starts at 1:48). They also take on MSNBC reporter Chuck Todd's assertion that the climate change debate is too political and Bill O'Reilly's ridiculous rage over an MSNBC tweet.

Watch their new episode below:

 

Peter Hart is the Media Activism Director for Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR).
