Not sure having 3 people sitting around on air laughing at and gossiping about him is much better or preferable, though.

I know BVS already did, but this deserves to get quoted again.

The only reason Fox is saying anything about him is the never ending Fox/NBC (MSNBC) on-air feud. It's pathetic the way O'Reilly and Olbermann go after each other on their shows. It's so childish and boring-and very strange.

Keith has disputed that New York Post item. The Murdock Empire is going to do everything in their power to destroy him.

Keith Olbermann speaks for me. He is the closest thing we have to an Edward R. Murrow, which we desperately need now.

Of course he has. Anyone would have.

Olbermann seems to be doing a pretty good job of doing that himself.

Yeah, there are also the stories about Bono spending $7,000 to have a left-behind pair of sunglasses shipped to him. We all believe that to be true.

Have you seen his show? Have you seen the type of person he is and the type of person he thinks he is? I don't doubt for a second that it's true, especially considering even the Huffington Post is reporting it, which never says anything bad about liberals or NBC.

Be careful, if you use this kind of no doubt logic based on the type of person he is on TV you're gonna have to apply the same logic with some of your heroes...

The Huffington Post just reported what Page Six said, which is nothing but a gossip page.

That being said, I could care less Olbermann and O'Reiley are cut of the same cloth, just different sides of the aisle.

Olbermann isn't an eighth the journalist Murrow was, and to mention Olbermann in the same breath as Murrow cheapens Murrow's legacy, but... you unfortunately may be right. Such is the state of tv journalism these days...

keith olbermann was much less douchey when he was making witty comments about putting biscuits in baskets while sporting a whispy 70's style moustache.

Disjointed even by Olbermann standards.

Something about a 90 year-old women (who has lived in the same modest house for 38 years and IS STILL PAYING OFF THE MORTGAGE), a witch and an Alaskan secessionist (who died in 1993).

Anyone have a clue?

No. Getting a clue would require me to watch said Olbermann clip, and I've had enough of blowhards who are far too pleased with themselves lately.

I still think Keith Olbermann is terrific. He seems to be turning off a lot of people these days though, even people who basically share his political views.

Diemen, Murrow is a hero of mine, and I still think Keith is the closest thing we have to him these days.

Lord, why are there so many CONSERVATIVES on this website????
