Small Bite: Thoughts on MSNBC as Obama alum spot?

Full Platter:

On Tuesday, MSNBC announced that it is hiring former White House advisor David Axelrod as a senior political analyst. Axelrod is best known for his work as a political advisor to Bill Clinton and also for his role in Obama’s successful 2008 and 2012 presidential campaigns. Between campaigns he served as Senior Advisor to the president.

In recent years, Axelrod has also been working as director of the Institute of Politics at his alma mater, University of Chicago. Although he’s most commonly known for his work in politics, Axelrod originally began his career as a journalist writing for The Chicago Tribune.

Axelrod has already made somewhat regular guest appearances on the NBC News show “Meet the Press” and on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” with Joe Scarborough.

The decision of NBC News and MSNBC to hire the former Obama advisor is part of a larger trend of hiring former White House and campaign advisors as television political analysts.

Steve Schmidt, a strategist for John McCain’s losing presidential bid, already works for MSNBC. In 2008, Fox hired former Bush advisor Karl Rove. And, most prominently, ABC’s current “Good Morning, America” host, George Stephanopoulos joined ABC News in the 1990’s after serving as a political advisor to President Bill Clinton.
