"MSNBC prez defends convention team"
Amid a spate of awkward on-air conflicts among MNSBC anchors at this week’s Democratic convention, some staff members say there are sharp internal disputes at the cable network over whether its opinion and personality-driven political coverage has crossed the line.
“The situation at our channel is about to blow up,” a high-ranking MSNBC journalist told Politico on Wednesday.
Two other MSNBC sources said some of the testy on-air exchanges between Keith Olbermann — whose quick-witted and often caustic commentary has fueled ratings growth — and other network personalities were a public glimpse of much more intense behind-the-scenes turmoil.

MSNBC is awash and drowning in liberal pundits. Scarborough is a conservative, but he is simply not entertaining.
What a simply awful moment in television - did they really air this? They had nothing better? This network is toast.
Scarborough talks too much and still misses the point. The point is this: only NOW are the Iraqis talking about a pull out, and even then it's still 3 YEARS DOWN THE ROAD. 2011. Only now - that we have the upper hand and have beaten the terrorists back and ground the Shia militias to nothing, and now they've joined us.
Liberal pundits and Democrats can not now pretend that this is the same thing as them demanding a pullout in 2006, at the low point in the war - WHEN WE WOULD HAVE LOST, AND IRAQ WOULD'VE BEEN GONE FOR YEARS.
Barack Obama had the audacity (not of hope) to imply that Iraqi President Maliki is following Obama's lead on a pullout.
