MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer Talks Online Feedback and Web Comments

By kevin 

In the final part of our interview with Contessa Brewer for mediabistro.com’s Media Beat, the MSNBC anchor discusses social media and how Twitter and Facebook play a role in her day-to-day work as an anchor. She says half the feedback she receives comes in the form of good discussion while the other half is divided between vitriol and nonsensical, off-topic comments.

“I think sometimes people on Twitter or Facebook forget that there’s a real live person on the other side,” she tells us.

Brewer also delivers a Tony-caliber dramatic reading of one of her tweets.
