His words. Not ours.

In a Media Diet interview with MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan this week, The Atlantic’s John Hudson takes the reader on a high octane rant in which the anchor describes what he reads on any given day.

The Highlights:

·          I wouldn’t read a newspaper now unless you put a gun to my head and even then I would really try to negotiate with you.

·          Feel free to call me an asshole on Twitter. I won’t respond.

·          One of my great frustrations with working in cable news is that the entire cable news infrastructure has been branded through partisan political lenses and so people assume that if you’re on MSNBC you’re left and if you’re on Fox News you’re right. There’s no question that I’m painted as left because of the network I’m on.
