MSNBC: The Documentary Channel

By Brian 

Sure, Rita Cosby is losing her primetime show.

But “to me, this wasn’t a decision about Rita,” Dan Abrams tells the Philadelphia Inquirer in a story about MSNBC’s primetime changes. “This was a decision about tape, and about wanting documentary programming at 10 and 11.”

Abrams also says: “To us, documentary programming is not just essential, it is critical. Documentaries are our most important programs. We’re going to repeat them throughout the weekend.”
