TheGrio has corroborated something that I have been thinking for a while now. That is that MSNBC has been intentionally diversifying their anchors, pundits and contributors. What is impressive to me is that it comes across as a very genuine effort, not just token-ism. The article reports that MSNBC viewership has increased tremendously, particularly among African Americans. I cannot say, like some have said, that I keep my tv on MSNBC. I can say, though, that some of their programming is a part of my regular tv watching regimen. I appreciate their genuine diversity efforts. I also appreciate that they can have a civil conversation while examining different perspectives and still lean politically to the left. There are a few MSBC personalities that I would prefer not to listen to but by and large, there are my go-to cable news network. It sounds like that is true for many of us.
