    Not sure whats going on over at MSNBC with Keith Olbermann leaving. Based on the article over at Yahoo, it would appear either he was fired or that Keith left on bad terms with NBC brass.

    I don't know why.

    Keith has been the posterboy for MSNBC's venomous anti-conservative, anti-captialist ideology. It's not like Keith was a Black Sheep over there or anything. On the contrary, it seemed to me like they were looking to fill the lineup with a bunch of Keith knockoffs. Rachel is the "female Keith", Ed is the "Blue Collar Keith", and O'Donnell is the "Dull but Respectable anchorman looking Keith". All of them reeked of the same hate and negativity of Keith but with a different character.

    Anyway, I know all you pro-Keith commie people out there expect all us Conservatives to start cheering, but you're wrong. Keith was just a small symptom of the underlying problem. We'll start cheering when America gets back to the days where Americans reject the anti-freedom, anti-Constitution and anti-American ideology that has funded organizations like MSNBC. That will only happen when enough Americans get so sick of MSNBC that they no longer can earn enough revenue through commercial advertising due to their low ratings. We are on the right track, because MSNBC ratings are very low, but they are still in business spreading their lies and hatred so it's no time to celebrate yet. And losing Keith may not have been connected to ratings, or affect them from here on so celebrating Keith's departure is pointless right now.

    That's my two cents.

    Oh just fuck right off, fool!

    "Commie" my ass, not to mention "anti-freedom, anti-Constitution and anti-American ideology". :rolleyes2: Lawd, the irony.

    Your ridiculous hyperbolic rhetoric speaks for itself, and makes anything else you have to say irrelevant.

    My god, this country is rife with programmed, propagandized idiots!

    David Brock, founder and CEO of the media watchdog organization Media Matters for America,

    said Olbermann "led the charge against conservative misinformation in prime time".

    Thw trash on both sides of the fence feeds off each other. Olbermann and that nasty, nasty witch on MSNBC would not have anything to talk about if it were not for the loons at Fox. My opinion is that anyone who enjoys any of these shows needs to get out more, and get some therapy as well.

    Sorry folks, there's vitriol on both sides and both equally to blame. ..And if you really want to go there, let's ban violent shows on TV and movies, gamgster rap qlorifying violence, which are even more influential to those 'open to suggestion', and have a larger audience than political talk shows...

    I guess everyone needs someone or something to hate...

    Are you planning a Nuremburg rally? Freedom of the press is in our constitution. If you want state-run propaganda, watch Fox News.

    I guess none of you (except one or possibly two posters to this thread) have any idea that Comcast has bought NBC/MSNBC and what repercussions will ensue from this rather large merger. Ya all let me know how you feel about your imaginary freedoms when your cable bills are double what they are today.

    Lurker: As a 100% straight male you got a chip on your shoulder about an intelligent and articulate lesbian who probably has a better haircut than you? Rachael is just about as smart as human beings can be, especially when they work as a news commentator. :smile:

    erm . . . believe it or not, Lurker is 100% gay. He has a deep antipathy for lesbos and black prezdents well documented in his post history.

    Sadly, he lives in my neighborhood, but we don't claim him and do our best to shun him.

    Yes.

    The "thought porn" talk shows like Limbaugh, Olbermann, Beck, Maddow, et al are entertaining but they are talk shows ... i.e., talk, not action ... show, not reality.

    Bread and circuses.

    However ... the merger of giant media corporations is something to watch carefully. They will want to restrict access to content and net neutrality for solid business reasons. They have a responsibility to shareholders' profits, not American freedom.

    That's just straight up bullshit. Accuse your enemy of your crime before they do is well a known right-wing-off-the-cliff tactic. Nothing on the 'other side' can match the hate machine that is O'Reilly, Beck, Palin and many many others. The bile in the Tea Party is simply unparalleled.
