MSNBC Contributor Crawford Resigns, No Longer Willing to be ‘Cartoon Player for Lefty Games’

by Anthony Kang

No longer capable of tolerating his colleagues at NBC, political contributor Craig Crawford announced he has resigned from MSNBC post.

“Three months short of my current contract I sent the following to the boss, Phil Griffin: ‘Phil, Just wanted to give you the heads up that my situation with MSNBC has become so unrewarding for me that I’ve decided to move on,'” he wrote this morning on his Congressional Quarterly blog.

“I simply could not any longer endure being a cartoon player for lefty games, just gotta move on to higher ground even if there’s no oxygen,” Crawford later elaborated on a comments-thread…

…Crawford told Mediaite via email, “I haven’t felt like a good fit for MSNBC since the presidential campaign, and the hard turn toward point-of-view programming. No particular event brought this on, just my desire to try other outlets and have more fun.”

He went on, “As far as Chris is concerned, on Morning Joe after the West Virginia primary he accused me of always defending Clinton and what he claimed to be her racially motivated campaigning. That’s the problem. Trying to be fair became seen as bias in the new thinking over there. But I do wish my many pals at MSNBC nothing but good things.”…

…Crawford will be appearing on “Fox & Friends Monday” March, 8, 2010.
