    There will be diminished viewing on MSNBC and yes there is Obama fatigue. I worked two summers door to door in southern Nevada, while living there, for his campaigns. I am tired of his inability to effectively promote his policies. More overr his advisers have long since needed to be replaced. MSNBC can not promote policies or an ideology when the progressive leadership does not convincingly promote it themselves. The key issues in the election surrounded the economy. It was totally missed by everyone, including MSNBC for the past two years. Jobs have been shipped offshore for the past 30 years. They have not been replaced with comparable good paying jobs. Prices for core products that do not show up in inflation reports have increased. Politicians and the media are afraid to criticize corporations for their inaction to assist in the recovery. MSNBC as well as the administration could have been pushing solutions no one has. I could elaborate pages of missed opportunities on this, bottom line MSNBC will lose viewers.
