MSNBC To Launch Daily Facebook Videos

CaptureMSNBC’s two newest programs won’t be seen first on the cable-news network.

MSNBC is teaming up with NowThis a distributor of digital video in which NBCU has a stake. One, “Sound Off,” will focus on a breaking story in the morning that users can discuss and debate.
