MSNBC into conspiracy over Fox's TV ratings? Not too surprising for MSNBC

So don't NBC and MSNBC have news bureaus?  Can't Phil Griffin get his own news people to come up with the evidence?  From Mediaite:

. . . “Monday we had a really good day in the key demographic, on the night that Fox News debuted their three shows, we either tied or beat them in those hours,” Griffin told a group of MSNBC employees at a briefing to preview the launch of a redesigned MSNBC.com. 
“Tuesday – you guys should be doing some investigations – I have never seen it in all my years of cable, same overnight, same everything, and they doubled their ratings in a day? It is impossible,” Griffin continued inadvisably. “I have never seen it. They did election night numbers in the demo Tuesday.” . . .  
Griffin is correct. After a lackluster debut on Monday night for Megyn Kelly’s The Kelly File, her ratings increased in the key demographic by %116 percent to 635,000. “Kelly also saw a 34% increase in total viewers, rising to 2.768M,” Mediaite reported. “Fox News soundly beat its competition on CNN and MSNBC in both the 25-54 demo and total viewers.” 
Impressive, yes. No one has yet, however, suggested that this ratings increase was… suspicious. . . .
