Once you download MSNBC.com's plug-in, you no longer have to bother with crowed web pages, like those of ABCnews.com. If you decide not to download the menu, msnbc.com also has an easy to use news index with a list of headings on the home page that allow you to browse anything from today's news to travel and weather.
The website also offers readers an opportunity to have daily news stories sent to them via email, along with the opportunity to write back to the editors of each section found in the index. In addition, the website provides its viewers with special sections written by popular staff writers such as Mike Brunker who writes this month about public firms aim to push cyberporn into the mainstream in his article, "Sultans of Smut."
Despite easy access, the website does have some drawbacks that actually deal with the usage of commercialization and the amount of space that it sometimes encompasses. Part of the problem, as mentioned, with other websites is the overcrowding of the web pages by ads and links to other sites that want you to buy something. MSNBC.com does a better job of filtering their website through headings and subheadings, however, they, as well as abc.com fall privy to the commercially viable world.
If the keys to success are ease and accessibility. MSNBC.com has both of these. -Robert Ciafardini
