Lindsey Graham: You Couldn't 'Increase MSNBC's Ratings If You Put Guns To Their Heads'

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) had some harsh words for the folks over at MSNBC during an interview with Newsmax's Steve Malzberg. 

Appearing on The Steve Malzberg Show on Thursday May 1, Graham slammed MSNBC: "I don't think you could increase MSNBC's ratings if you had a gun to people's heads." [See video below.]

Graham was schduled to appear with Malzberg to discuss the recent revelations into the Benghazi scandal, most notably emails that revealed the The White House had directed Ambassador Susan Rice to use talking points that emphasized the terrorist attack was related to an anti-Islamic video and not a reflection of President Obama's foreign policy.

While the majority of the segment centered around Benghazi, Malzberg asked Senator Graham to weigh in on the impending merger between MSNBC owned company Comcast and Time Warner Cable. Malzberg wondered if the merger between the two cable giants would limit the ability for conservative voices to find a place, a theory in which Graham flatly denied.
