Did Politico's Dylan Byers Call MSNBC's Younger Hosts 'Comically Bad'?

It certainly looks that way:
But while Byers says that MSNBC’s frantic attempts to mitigate the damage the MSNBC brand has suffered in 2013, hiring “comically bad” younger hosts in a failing bid to attract viewers of a similar age and feigning even more outrage directed at the usual suspects, he is kind enough to note that the network has a variety of strong brands that deserve preservation.
But maybe he didn't:
Prime time is just hours of what often seems like feigned outrage. And the daytime strategy -- giving shows to kids in their 20s and 30s, in an apparent bid to reach the youths -- is comically bad, and rendered absurd at every commercial break when the catheter ads come on.
Tomato, tomahto, I guess.
