    MSNBC, for all the great progressive shows it has, is in business to make money, and wouldn't air these shows if it didn't make it money. And I think that part of its business model is to keep the left in perpetual anger and agitation and hooked on these shows to find out about the latest GOP outrage we're supposed to tear our hair out over. This site does that too, intentionally or not. An awful lot of energy on the left is directed towards getting angry rather than on actually doing something about what we're angry at. And so there's a left-wing version of the RW "political entertainment and outrage complex" that makes money off it.
