MSNBC’s Opinion/News Breakdown Gets ‘Reliable Sources’ Treatment

By Alex Weprin 

The State of the News Media report that showed that showed that of the “big three” cable news channels MSNBC had the most opinion was a topic on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” Sunday. TVNewser’s Gail Shister joined The Hollywood Reporter‘s Marisa Guthrie and Mediaite’s Joe Concha to talk about it.

“There is no question that it is a lot cheaper to just spout off and be a gas bag about anything than it is to actually report,” Shister said, noting, however, that reporting often informs opinion.
