O’Reilly: MSNBC Hired 'Guttersnipes'

Monday, 29 Mar 2010 11:56 AM

By Dan Weil

Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly has simple explanations for why the ratings of CNN and MSNBC lag so far behind those of his own network.

The basic problem with CNN is its failure to offer analysis, and the issue at MSNBC is that it’s hired people with unpleasant personalities, he told Newsmax.TV.

“CNN basically stayed where they were 10 years ago, they didn’t change with the times,” said O’Reilly, host of "The O’Reilly Factor."

“We live in a very intense country right now, a very difficult time. CNN doesn’t reflect that urgency.”

CNN merely reports the news, O’Reilly points out. They do it well, as evidenced by their Haiti coverage.

But Americans already know the news from the Internet and other sources. “They want analysis and perspective from a cable network,” O’Reilly explained. “CNN doesn’t give you that.”

As for MSNBC, “They made the key mistake of hiring bad people. It’s as simple as that,” O’Reilly said.

How are they bad? “They have a bunch of guttersnipes on their network, that even if you’re a liberal, which is what they sell, you don’t like these people,” he said.
