National Review media editor Eliana Johnson, who believes lefty talk-show host Rachel Maddow may be calling the shots at the liberal-leaning MSNBC, believes the network could be in for big changes this year.

"The problem that you're going to see MSNBC grapple with over the coming year is that aside from Rachel herself … the loudmouth populace just seem to resonate with MSNBC's audience more," Gordon told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"What you're going to see happen is the network really grappling over the next year with what it wants to be. Does it want to continue to go in the direction of Maddow and her proteges, or will they take a more serious look at the ratings and what resonates?"

He believes that network soul-searching may decide whether MSNBC President Phil Griffin "stays or goes," Johnson believes.

"Phil Griffin, he's not a great manager and he's struggled to manage the talent there. You can see that in the spate of impolitic remarks that have come from the mouths of several of their hosts in recent months."
