MSNBC lovers!
MSNBC, the place for politics! (Or so says their latest tagline.)

Of course, it's the mostly liberal side of the cable news scene (believe it or not, MSNBC does have some conservatives). We of pundit fandom like to think it's the "fun" arm of NBC since its anchors can get away with quite a bit more silliness than core NBC News/local affiliates and CNBC.

Can't watch MSNBC on the tee-vee? Not a problem; MSNBC makes the majority of its on-air content available through its flash video players (if you don't mind ads). Better still, most of it's big-name news programs (and then some) are also posted as commercial-free podcasts of both the video and audio-only variety! Awesome! (Keep reading for the big list of show and Twitter links.)

Rules:
We're a pretty laid-back crew at this-here community. Live blogging, picspams, YouTubes and other forms of squee are most definitely welcome! While we don't mind snarking on Fox News and such, do try to keep things civil. If you could keep OMGHUGE images or super-long posts behind a cut, that would also be awesome. :)
