The Young Turks’ Cenk Uygur, has revealed that in 2011, when he was on MSNBC, he was warned by that network to be careful in what he said about Fox News because of its “black room” operations.
A few days ago, reporter Gabriel Sherman reported about a “Black Room” operation that Fox’s then-chief Roger Ailes established “to conduct PR and surveillance campaigns against people he targeted both inside and outside the company.”
In his video below, for The Young Turks, Uygur explains that while he’s not sure MSNBC actually called it a “black room,” it was known to the network and, apparently, feared.
That begs the question as to why MSNBC never called out this chicanery by a rival. I can assure you that Fox News would have if the roles were reversed.
“We’re nowhere near done with this story yet,” Uygur said.
I certainly hope not.
