Uygur described the difference between the web and MSNBC — where he was named a contributor and substitute anchor in October 2010. He told the magazine that “television gives you an opportunity to really put together a great product and visually make your case to the audience better.”
As for his competition, Uygur admits that “Fox News is very relevant” but affirms that “they do not do legitimate news.” Uygur described his plans for competing directly with Fox News:
“I also plan to beat them in the ratings and make them fear me.”
The MSNBC contributor says that his web show is “already the largest online news show in the world and I plan to continue that domination.”
