The Obama News Anchor
By Big Tent Democrat
Speaking for me only.
As if NBC could do something more to convince you it is the Obama News Network, its MSNBC election night anchor is apparently going to do a Special Comment attacking Hillary Clinton. One hopes he will urge her to leave the race just for the cherry on top.
I have always accepted that Keith Olbermann's Countdown show was a biased broadcast. And that he favored the progressive and Democratic point of view on things in his choice of stories, tone and reporting. He was the Dems' Faux Noise, but sticking to the facts (while admittedly ignoring others.) But I never expected him to become Barack Obama's Bill O'Reilly/Rush Limbaugh. But he has.
In some respects, his "Special Comment" tonight comes too late for Obama, as Olbermann is already thoroughly discredited as an observer of this campaign. Might as well have Chris Matthews do it. That is where Olbermann's credibility is in this race. Will I watch it? Honestly, no. I do not enjoy his broadcasts anymore. But more than that, I never really cared for his bombastic Special Comments after the novelty of the first few wore off. But some will enjoy it. And more power to them.
NOTE - Comments closed. A particularly poor performance by the TL commenting community in this thread. Thanks for nothing.
