MSNBC Rings in the New Year with Stale Programming

War continues to rage between Israel and Hamas in the Middle East, Blagojevich appointed Burris to the Senate, and the Senate is threating not to seat him, and Obama's new administration is now just 20 days from assuming office....

And how is MSNBC covering this?

With another doc-bloc "marathon" trumpeted to begin on New Year's Day ... as well as canned non-news specials for Hardball and Countdown which have been airing all week, and just this morning, we were treated to a rerun of Morning Joe Scarborough. Where is the logic in rerunning a morning news show?

I continue to hope that MSNBC comes to its senses, and ends its abdication as a go-to, live news operation on late-night weekends and holidays. The news, after all, takes no vacations.

In the meantime, here's a loud, discordant horn, as MSNBC rings in the New Year with more, stale programming.
