You know, I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that if Keith’s ratings weren’t so awful that this indescretion would be overlooked. However since his ratings suck I bet they’re just looking for an excuse to get rid of him. You know its bad when you go on a long vacation, so you bring in a guest host, and the ratings go UP.
That’s kind of a hilarious rule for NBC to have. They need to show that they’re “unbiased journalists”. HA HA HA HA! Dude, just own it. Be proud. Come out of the closet. We already all know that MSNBC is in the bag for the democrats. It’s that whole pretending thing that just makes you look like complete chumps.
On election night I kept flipping between the various news channels. FOX always gets bashed because their slogan is Fair & Balanced, even though we all know that most of their personalities are Republicans. But when I watch their election coverage they’ve got actual liberals and democrats on the panels arguing with conservatives and republicans. I flip over to MSNBC and the panel is Keith Olberman, Rick Maddow (Rachel? Really? Huh…), and the fat guy with the leg tingle trying to ask Michelle Bachman over and over if she’s now going to use the power of congress to hold brutal witchhunts against her enemies, and when she refuses to answer like 3 times, (because there is no answer to that question they can’t spin against you, kind of like “so, are you still beating your wife”) then they just make fun of her.
Come on MSNBC. We all know you’re full of crap. If you want to break Olberman’s contract because he’s a douche with an audience smaller than the 4:00 AM Slap-Chop and Sham-Wow commercials, just come out and say it.
I am sad though, because if Keith Olberman goes away then I’ll never be declared THE WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD. I’ve been secretly hoping that I would someday sell enough books to become famous enough to piss off Keith Olberman… I’ve not sold that many books yet though, but I have sold more than Keith Olberman’s. OOOOhhh BURN!
And for the record, I have no idea what Keith Olberman did to piss off the orcs that badly. It must have been something he said.
