Perhaps I should have been a little more clear for you. There was no follow up to their blown story and lack of research of post game celebrations or losses in Canada. No admission of them completely getting it wrong prior to the riot.
As to your last part, it was NPR that had the Vancouver Police Chief on a few hours before Game 7 asking him if they could give us advice on how to prevent riots, and why can't we behave like Canadians behave. I remember the Chief saying that his police engage the fans and give them "high fives" as they exit the game. LMAO!
Are you clear now?

They have their good moments on NPR. I tend to notice that Democrat politicians are more likely to give interviews on NPR because they know they will be tossed a softball and swooned over.
I never really understood why MSNBC is described as left leaning. I find it rather boring and centrist at best. Perhaps because the whole American system is further to the right than the Canadian one.
Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, and up until a few months ago Keith Obelman? They aren't left leaning or ultra-liberal? Did you see the lineup they had for the 2010 Mid-Terms? Those three and some other guy. Talk about whining brats. It was embarrassing to watch their meltdown... but also fun.
I don't see too much difference between a left leaning Canadian and a left leaning American... ditto to the right leaning ones.
As of late you don't hear much from MSNBC, they tried to counter FOX but failed miserably.
