You all know I'm an optimist. I've refrained from jumping on the MSNBC bashing bandwagon. However, in my curiosity about whether or not a certain Newsviner's article about the New Yorker cover had been picked up by MSNBC, I noticed something quite strange.
On the community page, there appeared to be a Newsvine piece featured. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a seed from an MSNBC writer to an MSNBC article.
WTF?! Seriously, how ridiculous.
Note to MSNBC: Don't pretend you're featuring an article from "the community" and just cycle people expecting to read a piece written by a Newsvine columnist, back to an MSNBC page. Already your integration as implemented has affected the community adversely. This takes your egregious disregard for this community and its culture entirely too far.
Discuss this on Newsvine indeed.
