Keep in mind that this is the MSNBC that is constantly belittling Fox for being biased for Republicans.
Reputable cable news outfits generally have at least one bona fide objective journalist covering the returns. For example, Fox News doesn't have Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly, and Sean Hannity hosting the hard-news coverage.
MSNBC on the other hand? Well, I posted these updates last night:
Fox News has one hard news journalists, one conservative, and two liberals on their panel. MSNBC has 5 bombthrowers (including Matthews, Maddow, Olbermann, and O'Donnel) and zero conservatives.
The 5 liberal msnbc hosts interviewed bachmann, called her "moronic", then ridiculed the notion that msnbc is in the tank for the Democrats
So while Fox News didn't stack the deck with conservative commentators, MSNBC asked their entire stable of far-left talking-heads digest the news for their viewers--with no representation from the other side.
Ironically, the five liberals scoffed at the notion that MSNBC was in the tank for Democrats. Republicans might have objected--if any were included on the panel.
It should come as little surprise then that Mediate reported that Fox's coverage was fairer than MSNBC.
MSNBC's election coverage was led by a panel comprised mostly of its opinionated prime-time hosts (Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell, along with frequent contributor Eugene Robinson), with nary a conservative voice in the mix. In contrast, Fox News's was provided by two anchors from its straight-news dayside, Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier, along with a panel that included conservatives like Karl Rove as well as liberals like Juan Williams.
Fox News offered a far more balanced set of analysts for the election coverage than did MSNBC.
Credit where due, Fox also had a more, well, balanced panel much of the night than its competitor MSNBC. Holding forth from left of center for Fox were the recently-high-profile Juan Williams and Democratic political guru Joe Trippi. MSNBC's main lineup, on the other hand, was basically its center-to-left lineup of nightly hosts: Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell.
This evidence seems to say that Fox News might not be as biased as the Left says it is--and that it's the Left who needs a lesson in fairness.
