MSNBC's ineffective fair and balanced approach

Another post in this thread follows on the above topic.

Here's a good article on how some MSNBC hosts give a forum to extreme wackos in the name of being fair and balanced. I saw these examples on Hayes' show and agree completely with the criticism that one cannot treat these fanatics who do not 'reason' or acknowledge facts as an adversary worthy of respect or equal treatment. By trying to engage them Hayes only allows them yet another forum to inculcate their propaganda further. And he fails to accomplish what he thinks he can, some sort of rapprochement leading to a better political process. The critic comes the the same and correct conclusion as Corbett here.
