If you've wanted the NSA and anti-spying campaigners to sit down and hash things out, you're about to get your wish... well, sort of. MSNBC is holding a surveillance-themed debate between former NSA head Gen. Keith Alexander and ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero on June 30th. When the two sid

Already delayed beyond its planned pre-election launch, and following CNBC's first dabble into real HD, MSNBC has chosen Monday, June 29 as the day it becomes self aw....begins broadcasting in high definition. No word specifically which programs will be in HD, but with the network already broadcasti

Election Night 2008 brought about an unprecedented amount of HD coverage, and while we're all in absolute agreement that CNN's \"holographic\" interviews were the comedy for the evening, we're interested on your take on how networks as a whole did with their high-def presentation. Was CBS' polished g

Please tell us this is a mistake or an outdated story that was accidentally republished. Actually, how can it be since MSNBC is a major news source? Seems that nobody told Gary Krakow that the DTV transition is February 17, 2009, so he's figuratively "breaking the law" by telling folks tha
