THE FREUDIAN SLIP OF THE DAY COMES FROM MSNBC'S BOSS PHIL GRIFFIN:"WE KNOW WHO WE ARE"

"Change has happened, and we have a great bench, we're deep, and we know who we are," Griffin said. "Nothing changes. Our vision's the same, our goals are the same. Fox is in front of us, that's where we're heading."
How you can slip up in so many ways in just one paragraph is astounding, isn't it? That is MSNBC president Phil Griffin, commenting on Keith Olbermann's "departure". But the Freudian slip here? The thing that will happen?
Fox is in front of us, that's where we're heading.
Of course, of course, what he meant was ratings-wise. Yeah, right...

Thank you for making that clear, Mr. Griffin.

And thank you for inadvertendly telling us what you want MSNBC to be.
