The Huffington Post ran a major hit on MSNBC today, headlining a series of articles with: "MSNBC Implosion." The coverage served mostly to amplify a conservative agenda.

Scant evidence supported the idea that MSNBC is "imploding" or "is about to blow up," as one conservative "top-ranking" journalist at MSNBC fantasized. No names were mentioned, but the quote appeared next to a picture of conservative hack, Joe Scarborough.  

Consider the news outlets Huffington Post linked their coverage to: Politico, The Wall Street Journal, and Jossip (which has a vendetta to ruin Keith Olbermann: see this article, and this one).

The Jossip column feigned astonishment with Olbermann, asserting confidently (albeit without any proof): "Nobody can believe how much Keith Olbermann is getting away with." This amateur reflection could only come from an emasculated conservative sissy, in this case David Hauslaib, who fervently hopes that a big bad conservative bully will pummel the uppity Olberman and make Hauslaib feel all warm inside again.

He sounds like a classic tattletale: "Nobody can believe how much Keith Olbermann is getting away with. C'mon guys, stop him! Waaaaaa." You can tell Hauslaib's roots in journalism began on the playground in third grade. 

Then the Post had a link entitled: "MSNBC Remains in Distant Third in Ratings." Astonishingly, the New York Times blog to which the hyperlink rolled over reported a different finding: NBC led the networks

With Arianna at the convention, is it possible that some Republican hack is running content for the Huffington Post? An attack on NBC for running Leftist coverage is to be expected from Rush Limbaugh and the conservative corporate media, but not HuffPo.

The debates between Olbermann and Scarborough have been the most exciting spectacles of the convention. If anything viewership at NBC is rising as word spreads of the excitement there and the debates become really balanced for the first time. 

Liberals ought to show their support for NBC by spreading the word and tuning in. It's a shame that Huffington Post is acting as the mouth piece for the conservative slant.
