MSNBC and Libya: any post-mortem?

MSNBC came in for a Twitter beating on Sunday evening as rebels swarmed the Libyan capital of Tripoli.

With occasional cut-ins, the network largely stuck with “canned” programming — “Body Snatchers of New York” and “Caught on Camera” — until 7:53 p.m., from which point it went live for the balance of the evening.

Any regrets over at MSNBC? If it had a do-over, would it have bagged the voltage in favor of one of the year’s most compelling stories?

No word from MSNBC on this point. Writes MSNBC spokesman Jeremy Gaines, “Not going to have anything to say” on any post-mortem discussions.

Erik Wemple writes the Erik Wemple blog, where he reports and opines on media organizations of all sorts.
