Dan Abrams on the “Intellectually Consistent” MSNBC Prime Time

Abrams_1.5.bmpIn the Winter edition of Trump Magazine, former MSNBC anchor and GM Dan Abrams talks about life before and after (even though he’ll still contribute to NBC & MSNBC) TV, as CEO of Abrams Research. The profile gets into the conflict of interest angle that has already been documented on this blog and others. But Abrams also opens up about his final show on MSNBC, “Verdict:”

“I’m very proud of the show that we did. The ratings were great. It just wasn’t the right show for the network at that particular time. As the network became more political, I probably wasn’t the right person for that show. I couldn’t do what needed to be done to make that show work. I think that now, from 8 to 11 p.m., MSNBC has a prime time that is intellectually consistent. And I think that that is very important in cable news.”
