BEVERLY HILLS -- MSNBC president Phil Griffin has his sights set on Fox News. Griffin opened the network's presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour here by noting that this year, MSNBC has surpassed perennial cable news leader Fox News in the ratings in multiple hours. The previous year, MSNBC did it once.
"It just gives you an indication of where we're going," said Griffin. "For the first time we're beginning to chip away at Fox News Channel."
