    Anyone who have been watching "The Last Word" on MSNBC have probably figured out that the "Rewrite" segment is somewhat on par with Olbermann's "Special Comment" segment. Also, anyone who have seen the show knows that O'Donnell has no problem getting confrontational with any politician who gets the facts wrong regardless of political affiliation.

    Tonight's show seemed more personal than usual. Check out some of the comments he made about Bill O'Reilly - The Last Word - Lawrence's challenge to Bill O'Reilly

    Only two words to say about the final few seconds of that video... Oh my. :tongue:

    I could not get video to load....... but if it's like most of Billo's stuff, guest says two words Bill interrupts for the remainder of the interview. Bill was over his head when he quit hosting the tacky magazine show, was it First Edition?

    What was even more telling was the subsequent video where a guy with a cell phone tried to interview FOX's "attack" reporter asking if it was true what a FOX insider had said: That most of the time FOX just makes stuff up. The the attack reporter tries to wrangle out of the truth by talking down and berating the reporter with the cell phone for not having big enough equipment.

    Sad. Just sad.

    i watch them both, i like truthful and educational TV, regardless of ratings. high ratings is usually indicative of lots of mindless lemmings in the audience who are either unwilling or unable to think on their own.

    Obviously you don't watch MSNBC. But considering that it's continually one of the most popular news sites (only Yahoo! News and CNN top it) it's safe to say that more people overall are interested in what goes on there. Top 15 Most Popular News Websites

    Fox does have higher TV viewership, but at their highest their around the 2 Million mark. Combined with the number of unique monthly visitors to their website, the total number of people who go to Fox for their news on a monthly basis is almost less than DOUBLE what goes on at MSNBC and that doesn't even include their TV ratings. In other words, Fox needs to generate about another 27 Million different viewers & web visitors to their already existing base to equal what MSNBC does. You know, if we need to put into a clearer perspective how Americans get their news and which sources more people rely on.

    It starts with a clip of Bill O's show with him chatting up Dick Morris, comparing the Muslim Brotherhood (as described by President Obama) to MSNBC in that they both have "anti-American" elements. Evidently holding a differing opinion from Bill O is tantamount to being anti-American.

    O'Donnell challenged O'Reilly's staff to air anything from MSNBC that can be construed as anti-American, which is pretty much an impossibility. If any member of LPSG can link to anything anti-American that originally aired on MSNBC, then go for it. But you won't because you can't.
