What Is MSNBC News Online?

MSNBC is a news website that provides coverage of breaking news, top stories and commentary. The website features online articles and video clips of network programs, and users who have accounts with approved television providers can sign in on the MSNBC website with their account information for additional access to programs.

The MSNBC home page usually features the top stories of the day, and the Latest tab features a short collection of links on trending topics and individuals. The website also has an Explore tab at the top of the page where users can look up news stories and commentary by category. As of August 2015, these categories include Democrats, Republicans, Education, National Security and Health.

Television clips on the website primarily come from featured shows such as "The Last Word," "The Rachel Maddow Show," "Hardball With Chris Matthews," "Morning Joe" and "Politics Nation," as well as various other weekday and weekend programs.

The website also provide ways for users to interact with the material. Registered users can comment on news articles and commentary, follow individual MSNBC writers and reporters or take part in MSNBC polls and quizzes. There are also theme groups and fan clubs that users can join.
