MessNBC or MesSNBC (MSNBC nickname)

The MSNBC network (headquartered in Rockefeller Center in Manhattan) has often been cited for liberal bias. The nickname “MessNBC” or “MesSNBC” (mess + MSNBC) is sometimes used by the political right who believe that the politically left MSNBC network is a “mess.”
“MessNBC”/“MesSNBC” has been in use since at least March 2002. Other MSNBC nicknames include “PMSNBC” (since at least July 1996), “MSNBS” (since October 1996), “MSDNC” (since May 2005),  “MSLSD” (since September 2005), “MSLGBT” (since October 2008), “Moonbats Spouting Nothing But Crap” (since January 2010), “MSNBC-Pravda” (since August 2010), “More Stupid Nonsense Bull Crap” (since April 2013) and “MSNPC” (since June 2013).
The more conservative Fox News Channel has nicknames that include “Faux News” (since March 2001), “Fux News” (since July 2001), “Fox Spews”/“Faux Spews” (since November 2001), “Foxaganda” (since October 2003), “Fox Noise”/“Faux Noise” (since August 2004), “Fake News” (since September 2004), “Fixed News” (since October 2004), “Fox Comedy” (since December 2005), “Full Of Xenophobia” (since March 2007), “Fixed Noise” (since August 2007) and “FoxPAC” (since September 2009).
Wikipedia: MSNBC
MSNBC (stylized as msnbc) is a cable news channel based in the United States and available in the US, the UK and Canada. Its name is a combination of “Microsoft” and “NBC”.
Msnbc.com, a separate company, is the news website for the NBC News family, featuring interactivity and multimedia plus original stories and video which augment the content from NBC News and partners.
Two partnerships with the names MSNBC and msnbc.com were founded in 1996 by Microsoft and General Electric’s NBC unit, which is now NBC Universal. Although Microsoft and NBC shared operations of MSNBC cable at its founding, it was announced on December 23, 2005, that NBC Universal would purchase a majority stake in the television network, which left Microsoft with 18%. The two companies remain partners in msnbc.com. MSNBC shares the NBC logo of a rainbow peacock with its sister channels NBC, CNBC and ShopNBC. MSNBC is available in over 78 million households in the United States; and between June 2008 and May 2009, msnbc.com had the most unique visitors among global news and current events websites.
Many observers of the network say that MSNBC has become politically liberal compared with other networks, particularly in its prime-time lineup.

Do you call it, ‘MessNBC’ like others in the industry?

UGH, we’ll see.  Or hear, because I won’t be watching MessNBC at all.

MessNBC – What A Disgrace
By Steve LeMaster
Published: February 12th, 2010
If there was any reason to wonder why the lamestream media has lost its appeal, then look no further. MessNBC is on borrowed time and looking to follow the same path as Air America, who, by the way, accused the free market for their demise; it had nothing to do with their vile content. No, no. It was you, the stupid person who tuned out. But, alas, while pointing the finger of accusation at others they completely ignore where the other three were pointing at.
