The LAT ran a story about an open programming slot on MSNBC (we’d argue it’s the entire weekend line-up – hello Locked Up? – but no one asked us).
The grass-roots campaigns were triggered by the news that the cable channel is contemplating creating a new show for its 7 p.m. time slot, currently occupied by a repeat of “Countdown With Keith Olbermann.” That prompted the launch of independent Facebook groups extolling the merits of two radio hosts: Cenk Uygur of the Internet show “The Young Turks” and Sam Seder of Air America.
We’re torn. We like that Cenk Uygur and crew are local yokels. The internet show is filmed on Miracle Mile. Of course, Sam Seder is a comic. We will always be on the side that hooks up any comedian with full-time employment. Sorry Norm Coleman, you never had a chance with us.
Our sister site TVNewser also has a poll on this subject. Great minds.
