Today - MSNBC, 4:30pm

MSNBC is moving from their Secaucus, New Jersey outpost to a much more agreeable commute at 30 Rock (Rockefeller Center) in October, and thank god.  It's well known amongst the punditry that their Manhattan remote studios (Media 3 on 44th and 5th) have terrible, horrible, no good, very bad lighting - lighting that would make Angelina Jolie look like Joan Rivers without her makeup.  Yes, it's that dire.  As a result, I usually try to hike out to New Jersey, but today I didn't have time ... I won't even show you the video clip, it's not fit for public consumption.  Suffice it to say, I'm counting down the days until I can be bathed again in the soft studio bulbs.  (The photo below, thanks to the correcting abilities of my camera, does not do the bad lighting proper injustice.  You'll just have to trust me on this.  Or you could go on yourself and see.  You will cry/schedule a dermatologist appointment/give up on life afterwards, though.  Just saying.)
