Olbermann’s Attitude

I still enjoy watching Keith Olbermann on MSNBC’s “Countdown”, but he’s beginning tol get on my nerves. Every once in a while. His “Special Comments” are still marvelously written, but he, sometimes, goes over-the-top with his delivery. The points he makes ARE important, but not THAT important.

Finally, looks like there was a little dustup between Keith and another big NBC guy on the air..

Brokaw vs. Olbermann?

NewsBuster’s Brad Wilmouth notes a semi-terse moment between Tom Brokaw and Keith Olbermann last night during MSNBC’s political coverage…(via Chickaboomer) Shortly before 8:00 p.m., after Brokaw finished describing what he called the “very strong credentials” and “remarkable stories” of Barack Obama and John McCain, Olbermann chimed in: “And a third one trying to shoe-horn her way […]
