when angry speech is entertainment
Not for any good reason, Keith Olbermann, a political voice, on MSNBC was fired from his highly rated show COUNTDOWN by NBC's new owner COMCAST. He will make 7 million dollars a year to not work for the next two years left upon his contract.
Keith Olbermann was not my favorite newsman, not my favorite deliverer of critique of government, and not in any way, shape, or form someone I'd like to meet. I find him to be wrong many different times factually but where my dislike for him occurs is for his anger, and his choice to attack the enemy versus debate the enemy. The left complains about the attack media on the right, with Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck and others, but really, the left and right, for whatever purpose, both sound a lot a like, when you turn the volume down. They are simply noise. I have long thought that Bill O'Reilly, and Keith Olbermann should be trapped nude in a small cage with hundreds of hungry and aggressive weasels and allowed to wrestle for the chance to escape. The loser being fed to the weasels, the winner being shot and pissed on.
They both represent thinly sliced baloney, they both are politically motivated, not truth motivated, and they both have an agenda that isn't good. They seek, like whores, affection and money, and attention and fame. With Olbermann gone, all I can say is, O'Reilly I hope you are next. For the record, both sides are full of it, and we need to escape this before we can solve the most difficult issues in America.
