Breaking News! MSNBC Covers Breaking News


This just in...MSNBC decided to cover some breaking news over the Weekend. 

The struggling cable news network that has admitted they really aren't very good at covering breaking news, did just that when a plane went down at the San Francisco airport. 

MSNBC went so far as to push their season premiere of Lockup back one week, so they could devote more time to the crash coverage. 

MSNBC’s Craig Melvin anchored coverage of crash landing of Asiana Airlines Flight 214. Correspondent Noelle Walkeron reported from the scene.

This was a big step for MSNBC to not only acknowledge breaking news, but to actually cover it as well.

Of course, the George Zimmerman trail was off for the Weekend, so it was a much easier call for the cable net.
