Your criticisms of Olbermann deny the fact that he is probably the only newscaster on national media who is telling the truth. In fact, his wit is a saving grace.
I remember the McCarthy era when Edward R. Murrow was given short-shrift in the same way for truth-telling.
Keith's rant about Hillary was absolutely appropriate and I for one don't want her in
the White House. Where's her ability for diplomacy in a world that needs this of our president more than all the military posturing and macho-breast-beating about attacking instead of the cowardice of avoiding negotiations with those leaders who we don't like?
This latest faux-pas goes along with her "obliteration" remarks regarding Iran. In her autobiography, she talks about deliberately avoiding Castro by running off from him rather than having a substantive talk. I think she may be McCain in a pantsuit.
Olbermann is not a coward nor an equivocator such as the other bobble-headed so-called pundits on national media. He tells it like he sees it. He is honest.
This specious dismissal of his talents indicate that there are those who don't get it
when it comes to truthful revelations. They prefer to denigrate the messenger out of some kind of snob appeal.
No one has successfully brought the hypocrisy to the attention of the American public
on national media until Donahue and Olbermann. Bill Moyers is at the mercy of PBS and
doesn't get the exposure that he deserves.
Olbermann has the good sense to call upon Rachel Madow and Eugene Robinson for an analytic political viewpoint without the reactionary knee-jerk that reflects the voting public today who are in thrall to the infotainment newscasters.
You better be thankful for our democracy that we have someone like Keith Olbermann around.
