    ans no one could be a bigger asshole than O'Reilly but he still
    has a job because we are not that good at loyalty with our talking heads and we better learn to stand behind truth because the O'Reillys and Limbaughs conrol the narrative otherwise.  who is there to check their bullshit?  Exactly.

    •  I don't buy that he's an asshole. (7+ / 0-)

      As you said, we didn't work for him or with him. I've not seen anything that would cause me to think of him in a negative light. But there are lots of reasons to like him!

      And that's the trooth!

        I am an asshole when I am speaking truth to power and sure many on the receiving end don't like it but the truth is the truth.. That is what I meant asshole or not and I meant if one considers him an asshole.
        I certainly do not !  I miss him on the airwaves.  some say Grayson is but who cares ...I want him in congress and I want Olberman on the airwaves

          I didn't mean that you thought he was an asshole.  It was more an offhand/sideways reference to people who feel it necessary to inject that into KO discussions.  (Such as, in this diary.) And also.

          It's easy for people to believe that people who are loud, Liberal and Unapologetic, fighting the good fight, are also assholes. Not sure why this is true. Perhaps it's too many years of deferential Democrats, well-behaved and you know, mannerly.  Keith broke that mold, when it was quite unfashionable to do so.

          I was actually totally agreeing with you in my post.
