• Ronan Farrow is Now Calling Upon His Own Viewers to Tell Him Which Stories to Cover

    My vote is for the story about how his show is perilously close to cancellation

    We’ve been tracking the progress of young Ronan Farrow for several weeks now, as he desperately attempts to keep his head above water in the cable news race. His virginal television experience, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” is barely one and a half months old, but it’s already “on the bubble” so to speak as far as potential cancellation…which is pretty disastrous even by MSNBC standards.

    That said, I’m not exactly sure what prompted Lil’ Ronan to turn to his own viewers and ask them what stories he should be covering, but there’s a good chance it had something to do with the criticism he’s gotten on the heels of prioritizing reports about men who love “My Little Pony” over actual world events. I don’t mean to remind you of that segment every week, but–oh, hell. Who am I kidding? Of course I mean to remind you of it.

    I’m probably stating the obvious here, but only on MSNBC would you see an “anchor” (loosely described) calling upon his own audience to pick the news for him. I guess when your radar is that bad, you’ve got no choice.
