Experience the Power of Change!

I don't know if you have heard MSNBC's new tag line for themselves but now that the election is over, they have apparently stopped trying to hide the fact that they are a cable news station that's blatantly infatuated with Obama and purely giddy about Bush leaving Washington.

A short trailer complete with flowing flags and flattering profiles of Joe Scarbourough, Chris (Obama sends a tingle up my leg) Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and David Gregory flashes across the screen with the announcer stating "Stay with MSNBC and experience the power of CHANGE!" I thought that at a minimum the news channels were supposed to at least say they were unbiased. They may be a little nervous about more than twice the cable news viewer getting their news from FOX because their commentators are much less abrasive and condescending. I also enjoy how much FOX news is vilified. Sure they have conservative commentators but they don't advertise the entire news network as a power of good for a certain political figure. Experience the Power of Change! Do you think they meant changing the channel or more along the lines of if I save my pocket change that I can someday afford to go to Disneyland?
