You Can Get Cretins Aplenty Online

Why on earth would you tune in to someone who gets paid to be obnoxious?

MSNBC tried a bold experiment this year by putting two politically incendiary hosts, Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews, in the anchor chair to lead the cable news channel’s coverage of the election.
That experiment appears to be over.
After months of accusations of political bias and simmering animosity between MSNBC and its parent network NBC, the channel decided over the weekend that the NBC News correspondent and MSNBC host David Gregory would anchor news coverage of the coming debates and election night. Mr. Olbermann and Mr. Matthews will remain as analysts during the coverage.
The change — which comes in the home stretch of the long election cycle — is a direct result of tensions associated with the channel’s perceived shift to the political left.

“Perceived”! Oh, dear God, I LOVE it!

…NBC Universal executives are also known to be concerned about the perception that MSNBC’s partisan tilt in prime time is bleeding into the rest of the programming day. On a recent Friday afternoon, a graphic labeled “Breaking News” asked: “How many houses does Palin add to the Republican ticket?” Mr. Griffin called the graphic “an embarrassment.”

If it were the only one.
And Olbermann’s sitting on NBC’s NFL coverage, running his yap over Bob Costas and spreading his schmarm all over the panel. Which includes Dan Patrick, formerly of ESPN!!!

Dan Patrick and Keith Olbermann are reuniting on television on NBC’s Sunday night NFL coverage. The network announced Monday that it had hired Patrick, hoping the recapture the chemistry that hooked viewers to ESPN’s…

Oh, my GOD!!! Has Patrick been living in a protective BUBBLE? What kind of MOHron IS he? And we’re supposed to listen like he knows something now? I wonder how they call him to the set…

“Paging Butt Boy! Butt Boy, Stage 3!!”
Why am I thinking that Chris Collinsworth may well just kick Olbermann’s ass during some Sunday in the not-so-distant-future? It would only take one POP! to cancel The WORST PERSON IN THE WORLD.

And Dan, it’s called “Buyer’s Remorse”. Whatever it takes to suck-up to ESPN, ABC and Disney, do it. Get the f*ck out of Dodge before it’s too late. Ask Chris Matthews how that worked out for him

    David Gregory unbiased? Hello, NBC?

    So, Rush was to controversial for the NFL, but Olbermann is kosher? At least he was a sports anchor, but really…

    I make it a point to wait until the last minute before tuning in the game just so I won’t have to listen to Keith O-I’m-a-god. If I miss someone running back the opening kickoff, well so be it. And forget the half time show. That’s what channel surfing is all about.
    I do wish that they had Howie Long on that panel. I could see the time come when K.O. makes one to many snide comments and Howie stuffs him in the trash can head first.

  5. I would PAY to see THAT, joated!
    Howie Long…GAAAHHHHHHRRRRRRRrrrrrrrooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwlllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
