/// MSNBC Late to the Qaddafi Party
As rebel forces breached the walls of Tripoli yesterday, and Muammar el-Qaddafi’s brutal reign seemed poised for a spectacular collapse after months of civil war, American cable news outlets were all over the story. Except for MSNBC, that is. CNN started reporting live from Libya at 2 p.m., and began dedicating continuous coverage at 6. Fox News first began reporting on Libya during its Fox and Friends morning show at 6 a.m., with continuous live coverage starting at 4 p.m. But for hours, as Tripoli began to fall and as outlets around the world covered the struggle, MSNBC remained mute, choosing not to interrupt its traditional weekend fare of crime documentaries and prison lockup shows until much later in the evening.
