Phil Donahue struck back at MSNBC on Wednesday for his firing,
suggesting the network was too quick to pull the trigger and that it might be
trying to “out-fox Fox” with conservative voices. [Full
The Alan Keyes show which was only on for about two months and got three to four times the ratings of Mr. Donahue show did and Donahue’s show was on for a period four times longer than Mr. Keyes and in a better time slot. I find it laughable that he thinks MSNBC was too quick to pull the trigger. They didn’t need to pull the trigger since his show was already dead and in a persistent vegetative state ratings wise within two weeks of it’s debut. When the Democrats lost the mid-term elections they blamed it on the fact that they didn’t get their message out and Donahue also blames others for his failure. Face it your messages did get out and it just didn’t resonate with most people.
