Bias statement in lead section[edit]

I notice that while the lead section of the article on Fox News Channel states that Fox has been accused of bias and then provides a rebuttal to those accusations, the lead section of the article on MSNBC states MSNBC's bias as a matter of fact. It seems to me that most reasonable people would view the two channels as approximately equivalently biased, and so would expect similar statements about bias in their lead sections.

Semi-protected edit request on 14 December 2016[edit]

Remove MSNBC has closed 66.181.226.167 (talk) 18:12, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Not done: as you have not cited reliable sources to back up your request, without which no information should be added to, or changed in, any article.
Moreover, strangely enough, it still seems to be working Arjayay (talk) 18:24, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Bias statement in opening section[edit]

I notice that the opening paragraph on the Fox News article has a statement about alleged bias, followed by a rebuttal. However, this article on what is essentially the liberal equivalent of Fox News (MSNBC) makes no such reference to allegations of bias made against it. Examples of sources evidencing such claims are; Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2013/12/is-msnbc-worse-than-fox-news-179175 Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). https://www.forbes.com/sites/jeffbercovici/2013/03/18/pew-study-finds-msnbc-the-most-opinionated-cable-news-channel-by-far/#5a82ab405f8c

Can this please be amended?

Many thanks

What do the letters MSNBC stand for?[edit]

I came here to find this out, and expected to find it right at the beginning of the introduction, but someone seems to have forgotten to put it there! Best I can work out from other on-line sources is "Microsoft/National Broadcasting Company". This needs including for people in those parts of the big wide world where this service is not a common place. 81.140.181.108 (talk) 08:41, 15 March 2017 (UTC)

Bill gates?[edit]

This brand has obviously to do with MSN, which is owned by Bill gates, no? Why not a single mention of a bill gate sin a article on MSNBC? --KpoT (talk) 01:22, 24 March 2017 (UTC)
