MSNBC's President Phil Griffin made a rather astounding statement, venturing into the surreal, durring an interview with The Daily Beast on Thursday when he said about their network, "I think we’ve never had an ideology. An ideology is a single thought across all programs. We’ve never had that.” Compared to Fox News, Griffin said, “I think they do have an ideology."

Remember, this is the same network that employs Chris Matthews who gets a tingle up his leg every time he sees Obama, and Lawrence O'Donnell who challenged Mitt Romney's son to a fist fight during the election, and Ed Schultz with his bombastic "I hate Republicans" attitude, and Rachael Maddow with her utter misuse of real facts, and Melissa Harris Perry who has a callous disregard for developing human life and on, and on.

And then there's Touré's, The Cycle. Uh, yeah.

Right Phil, the Obama wing of the State Run Media in MSNBC, has no ideology and has no agenda. I'm calling total BS on this one.

The Daily Beast’s new interview with MSNBC president Phil Griffin occurred before RNC chair Reince Priebus announced his boycott of that network, so unfortunately it does not contain his response to that issue. The article does however contain plenty of interesting tidbits from Griffin, including his insistence that MSNBC “has never had an ideology” like its competitor Fox News does.

Griffin explains, “An ideology is a single thought across all programs. We’ve never had that,” before adding, “Obviously I hire people who fit the sensibility.”

At the same time, Griffin says of Fox News, “I think they do have an ideology, because every Republican who’s in trouble goes on that network to be taken care of… They’re owned by News Corp., which is Rupert Murdoch. Roger Ailes runs it, and he comes out of the Republican Party.” He adds: “That’s fine. They’ve done an incredible job over there. They’ve been very successful. They drive a lot of the conversation.”
