From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A separate company, msnbc.com, is the news website for the NBC News family, featuring original stories and video as well as content from NBC News and partners.[4] Two partnerships with the name MSNBC were founded in 1996 by Microsoft and General Electric’s NBC unit, which is now NBC Universal. Although Microsoft and NBC shared operations of MSNBC cable at its founding, it was announced on December 23, 2005, that NBC Universal would purchase a majority stake in the television network, which left Microsoft with 18%. The two companies remain 50-50 partners in msnbc.com. MSNBC shares the NBC logo of a rainbow peacock with its sister channels NBC,CNBC and ShopNBC. Microsoft invested $220 million for a 50% share of the cable network, while MSNBC and Microsoft would share the cost of a $200 million newsroom in Redmond, Washington for msnbc.com. NBC supplied the space with an 18-month-old America’s Talking network. Critics and observers of the network say that MSNBC has become increasingly politically liberal compared to other networks, particularly in its prime-time lineup.[5][6][7]

MSNBC
Region In Conflict program capitalized on her newfound celebrity and showcased exclusive interviews from Afghanistan. On December 23, 2005, it was announced that NBC Universal would acquire an additional 32% share of the television network from Microsoft, solidifying its control over television operations and allowing NBC to further consolidate MSNBC’s backroom operations with NBC News and its other cable properties. Msnbc.com would continue to be 50% owned by both NBC and Microsoft, and its operations would be largely unaffected. NBC would have the option to buy the remaining 18% share from Microsoft after two years. Rumors circulated that the cable network would eventually be rebranded as NBC News Channel, a name currently used for the network’s news service to NBC affiliates.

History
MSNBC’s Early History
MSNBC was launched on July 15, 1996. The first show, which was anchored by Jodi Applegate, broadcast a lineup of news, interviews, and opinions.[8] During the day, rolling news coverage continued with The Contributors, a show that featured Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham, as well as interactive programming coordinated by Applegate, John Gibson, and John Seigenthaler. Stories were generally longer and more detailed than the stories running on CNN at the time.[9] By the start of 2001, MSNBC continued to trail both Fox News and CNN. With the success of Fox News Channel, MSNBC tried to emulate the Fox News Channel’s emphasis on opinion hosts.[10] The Project for Excellence in Journalism found in 2007 after a seven year survey of cable networks that "MSNBC is moving to make politics a brand, with a large dose of opinion and personality."[11] In January 2001, Mike Barnicle got a show on MSNBC, but it was canceled in June 2001 due to high production costs.[12] In June, in a sign of continuing trouble of MSNBC, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said that he would not have started MSNBC if he knew then what he knows now.[13] After the September 11, 2001 attacks, MSNBC served as an outlet for NBC News to provide upto-the-minute coverage, in contrast to broadcast NBC’s longer stories. CNBC and CNBC Europe, with little financial news to report, ran MSNBC for many hours of the day following the attacks. The year also boosted the profile of Ashleigh Banfield, who had escaped injury while covering the World Trade Center on September 11. Her

MSNBC’s current studio in NYC In June 2006, Don Kaplan of the New York Post (owned by News Corporation, which also owns Fox News Channel) wrote a column titled "Do We Need MSNBC?" Addressing MSNBC’S low ratings, Kaplan quoted CNN cofounder Reese Schoenfeld, who said that "[e]verybody compares MSNBC to Fox and CNN — when its real competition is Headline News". Schoenfeld pointed out that the ratings for MSNBC and Headline News are roughly the same, about 300,000 viewers on average and that "by comparison, Fox and CNN regularly average three or four times as many viewers." In the column Kaplan remarked that "the running joke in TV news is Fox and CNN are news channels with websites, but MSNBC is a website with a cable channel".[14]. On June 7, 2006, Rick Kaplan resigned as president of MSNBC, after holding the post for two years.[15] Following the announcement, it was announced on June 12, 2006, that Dan Abrams, a nine-year veteran of MSNBC and NBC News, had been named General Manager of the NBC News 24-hour cable news channel, effective immediately. NBC News Senior Vice President Phil Griffin would oversee MSNBC. Griffin would also continue to oversee NBC News’ Today, and Abrams would report to Griffin.

MSNBC
On September 24, 2007, Abrams announced that he would leave the position of General Manager to focus on his 9:00 p.m. ET talk show, "Live With Dan Abrams". Oversight of MSNBC is now provided by Phil Griffin, a senior vice president at NBC.[18]On October 22, 2007, MSNBC and NBC News launched broadcasts from new studios at NBC’s "30 Rock" complex in New York City. After extensive renovations of the associated studios, NBC essentially merged its entire news operation into one building, and all MSNBC broadcasts, as well as the NBC Nightly News program, originate in the new studios. MSNBC is also expected to expand West Coast operations, as the network recently announced new studios near the Universal Studios lot, which will assemble all NBC West Coast news operations in one building. MSNBC’s Master Control did not make the move to 30 Rock. It remained in the old Secaucus headquarters until it completed its move to the NBC Universal Network Origination Center located inside the CNBC Global Headquarters building in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, on December 21, 2007.

Changes Since 2008
The monitors of the MSNBC newsroom are tuned in to specific channels. On June 29, 2006, Abrams announced a revamp to MSNBC’s early-primetime and primetime schedule. On July 10, Tucker (formerly The Situation with Tucker Carlson) started airing at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. ET (taking over Abrams’ old timeslot), while Rita Cosby’s Live & Direct was taken off the schedule. Cosby was instead given the role of primary anchor for MSNBC Investigates at 10 and 11 p.m. ET, a new program that took over Cosby and Carlson’s timeslots. According to the press release, MSNBC Investigates promised to "...complement MSNBC’s existing programming by building on [the network’s] library of award winning documentaries."[16] The move to taped programming during 10 and 11 p.m. was likely a result of the success that the network saw with their Friday "experiment" of replacing all primetime programming with taped specials. On October 22, 2007 MSNBC moved to its new headquarters in New York at the newly renovated 3rd and 4th floors of 30 Rock.[17] Studio 3A debuted that morning when MSNBC’s Morning Joe opened its broadcast from the studio at 6 a.m. ET. MSNBC continued to broadcast from Studio 3A throughout the day, including Live with Dan Abrams in primetime. Countdown with Keith Olbermann broadcast live at 8 p.m. from the 2nd floor of studio 1A. At 6:30 p.m. ET, Brian Williams unveiled the renovated Studio 3C on NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams. More than 12.5 hours of live television across NBC News and MSNBC originate from the two studios daily. From mid-2007 to mid-2008, the network received a large increase in its ratings.[2] Primetime viewings increased by 61% over that time.[2] In May 2008, NBC News President Steve Capus said that "It used to be people didn’t have to worry about MSNBC because it was an also-ran cable channel... That’s not the case anymore."[2] Tim Russert’s sudden death removed what The Wall Street Journal called the "rudder for the network" and has currently led to a period of transition.[19] During the 2008 Presidential election, the network’s coverage was anchored by Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, and David Gregory. The three were widely viewed as the face of the Network’s political coverage. [19] After Phil Griffin assumed executive oversight for MSNBC in 2006 (being named the network’s president in July 2008) the network has become increasingly liberal, particularly in its prime-time lineup.[5][6][7] Ratings have increased since he became president.[20][21] In March 2009, MSNBC temperately finished in 2nd place in prime-time, ahead of CNN for the first time in its existence. Phil Griffin, MSNBC chief executive, attributed this to the network’s decision to (per the Associated Press) "go liberal" with Olbermann and Maddow along with problems at CNN.

MSNBC HD
On October 23, 2008, it was reported that MSNBC HD will launch in the second quarter of 2009. The news network had been aiming to launch its HD offering in the fourth quarter of 2008. That turned out to be “a little aggressive,” MSNBC president Phil Griffin said in an

The current MSNBC studio MSNBC’s former NJ HQ Studio interview with Multichannel News. He further added “Look, I’d love to be in HD right now.” He went on to say “The idea of the announcement before the election appealed to me. I pushed our guys hard.” He then explained “We don’t want to do it in parts. We want to be fully ready.” He concluded with “Really this is the price of admission. You better be in HD in the next year or so, because you have to be in that tier.” [22] On October 30, 2008, Griffin confirmed in an interview with TV Week that the HD version will be in 1080i, like all other HD channels that NBC Universal owns. He also said the following: "As viewers are making the transition to HD more and more every day, we’re looking forward to delivering what they want: a full highdefinition experience on MSNBC." He added, "In addition to our live news programs, over 80% of our new documentaries will be presented in HD." [23] On April 2, 2009, Griffin announced at the annual Cable Show that MSNBC HD will launch on June 29, 2009. In his press release, Griffin said "MSNBC is in the best competitive place its ever been, beating CNN in primetime last month and continuing incredible growth. Broadcasting in HD is only going to help us build on the great success we’ve had so far this year, and will give viewers what they’ve been asking for, a full high definition broadcast of MSNBC."[1] A Dish Network press release on May 8th indicated that it would be the first satellite service to launch MSNBC HD in June (presumably June 29th).[24] Further carriage deals have not been announced. reason for the lack of availability is, in part, due to an exclusive carriage agreement that MSNBC entered into with Cablevision, which services the areas in question. [26] The terms of the agreement (i.e. when the exclusive agreement expires in 2011) are unknown. Although areas in Verizon’s Northern New Jersey area are serviced by another cable provider (Comcast), Verizon imposes the unavailability of MSNBC to all customers residing in their Northern NJ channel map. Customers who reside in the New York City area and do not live in Cablevision areas are affected, although MSNBC is available on FiOS in Staten Island, on channel 103.

Broadcasts
MSNBC is shown only in the United States, Canada, parts of Latin America & Africa (see below). In 2001, a Canadian version—MSNBC Canada—was developed; however, it was soon discontinued in 2004, and the American version began airing in Canada.

MSNBC Africa
In Southern Africa, MSNBC is distributed free-to-air on satellite on Free2View TV as MSNBC Africa, a joint venture between Great Media Limited and MSNBC. Free2View airs MSNBC’s programming from 4 p.m. to 12 a.m. ET in a block that repeats twice (live for the first airing), with local Weather Channel forecasts.[27] Botswana’s national television broadcaster, BTV, also provides an un-edited broadcast of MSNBC (including advertisements) after their scheduled programming each evening. BTV is available within Botswana, as well as to Southern Africa viewers on DStv.

Cable carriage issues
As a result of a carriage agreement, MSNBC is currently not available to Verizon Fios TV subscribers in Verizon’s Long Island & Northern New Jersey grouping as well as areas in New York City, Westchester County, and Orange County (FIOS does carry MSNBC on channel 103 in Secaucus, 103 & 603 on Long Island, NJ[25] and in certain areas in Manhattan on channels 103 and 1545). The

Europe and Asia
In Asia and Europe, MSNBC is not shown on a channel of its own. When the network started in 1996 they announced plans to start broadcasting in Europe during

1997. This never happened. However, MSNBC is shown for a few hours a day on the 24 hour news network Orbit News in Europe and the Middle East. During breaking news MSNBC is also shown occasionally on affiliate network CNBC Europe.[28] In the UK, during major US breaking news, the now-closed ITV News Channel (ITN) occasionally showed MSNBC; some of MSNBC’s reports appeared in ITV News bulletins. In Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, it is possible to ’unofficially’ view MSNBC in full on the Telstar 12 Satellite at 15W, where it is broadcast free-to-air on 11531H (for the purpose of monitoring by European broadcasters).

MSNBC

NTV-MSNBC
In Turkey, NTV-MSNBC is the news network of the Turkish broadcaster NTV Turkey. The network is a joint partnership between the two, although very little Turkish content makes its way onto English MSNBC. English content on MSNBC is translated to Turkish. [29]

Msnbc.com’s newsroom in NYC several partners, including The Washington Post and Newsweek magazine. The web site is developed in Redmond, Washington, on the Microsoft campus and news content is produced out of newsrooms in Redmond, New York, and London. It is the news provider for MSN, the portal site and online service operated by Microsoft, but it is editorially and financially separate. On April 2, 2007, msnbc.com launched a new logo and a new slogan, "A Fuller Spectrum of News." According to Nielsen Online, msnbc.com has risen above Yahoo! News and CNN for the position of top U.S. news site from June 2008 through January 2009.[30]

Criticism and controversy
Allegations of political bias
Liberal bias
Some have described MSNBC as having a bias towards the political left or Democratic Party. In November 2007, a New York Times article stated that MSNBC’s prime-time lineup is tilting more to the left.[5] Washington Post media analyst Howard Kurtz has stated that the network’s evening lineup "has clearly gravitated to the left in recent years and often seems to regard itself as the antithesis of Fox News."[2] In reference to the channel’s Nancy evening Snyderman programming, senior vice president of NBC News Stephanie Phil Griffin has said that "It happened naturally. There isn’t a dogma we’re putting through. There is a Stanton ‘Go Alison for it.’”[5] Stewart In the February 2008 issue of Men’s Journal magazine, a MSNBC Bob Sullivan interviewee quoted a senior executive who Mikesaid that commentator Keith Olbermann "runs MSNBC" Taibbi and that Don Teague "because of his success, he’s in charge" of the network.[31] The New York Times has called Olbermann Bobbie the Thomas network’s "most recognizable face".[5] In September Anne2008, MSNBC stated that they were removing both Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews as live political event Thompson Lee anchors, and replacing them with David Gregory, due to growing Thompson criticism that they were "too opinionated to be seen as Kevin Tibbles neutral in the heat of the presidential campaign." Chuck Todd [6][7] However, Olbermann continued to broadcast Meredith Countdown both before and after the presidential and Vieira vice-presidential debates, and both Matthews and MikeOlbermann joined Gregory on the network’s election Viqueira night coverage.

Pro-Obama bias
Some Democratic Party supporters criticized MSNBC during and after the 2008 Democratic Primaries, as covering Barack Obama more favorably than Hillary Clinton.[32][32][33] A study done by the Project for Excellence in Journalism showed that MSNBC had less negative coverage of Obama (14% of stories vs. 29% in the press overall) and more negative stories about Republican presidential candidate John McCain (73% of its coverage vs. 57% in the press overall).[34] MSNBC’s on-air slogan during the week of the 2008 presidential election, "The Power of Change", was criticized as being similar to Obama’s campaign slogan.[35]

Michael Savage dismissal
In March 2003, MSNBC featured a weekend show hosted by conservative radio host Michael Savage. Savage snapped at a prank caller on his show, calling him a "pig" and a "sodomite," telling him that he "should get AIDS and die," and to "go eat a sausage and choke on it." Savage was immediately fired.[36]

Don Imus controversy
In early April 2007, shock jock Don Imus, whose radio show Imus in the Morning was simulcast on MSNBC, made comments about the Rutgers University women’s basketball team. The comments sparked outrage, as many individuals considered the comments to be both racist and sexist. After an initial two-week suspension of Imus’ program, MSNBC canceled the simulcast as sponsors started withdrawing their advertisements from the show. Imus, as well as NBC News, apologized to the Rutgers Basketball team for the remarks.[37]
