Lindsey Graham: Couldn’t Improve MSNBC’s Ratings ‘If You Had a Gun to People’s Head’
In an interview with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Thursday, Newsmax TV host Steve Malzberg dug into the latest developments surrounding the White House’s response to the 2012 attack in Benghazi. Malzberg began by playing clips of MSNBC hosts mocking conservatives’ interest in the latest revelations. Graham said that this response to concerns about a government response to a terrorist attack was frustrating, and he later took a shot at the network’s low ratings.
After discussing the Benghazi revelations, Malzberg shifted to Comcast, which owns NBCUniversal and MSNBC, and Time Warner Cable’s proposed merger. “There’s a lot of concern that Comcast, with its liberal bent – NBC, MSNBC – would control much of the cable industry and conservative voices would have trouble finding a place,” Malzberg said.
“Here’s my general takeaway about MSNBC,” Graham replied. “People are in this business to make money, these cable companies. I don’t think you could increase MSNBC’s ratings if you had a gun to people’s head. I’m not worried about that.”
