  •  He also handled the post-speech analysis masterfu (0+ / 0-)

    ly.  Honestly, I was so sick of the lack of analysis from Time Russert and Brian Williams on NBC that I had to change the dial.  I was desperate to find some coverage of the speech where someone was honest about what was going on.  Russert basically said Bush is going to get a final chance and if he fixes the situation, he will be hailed as a brilliant commander and chief.  At one point, Williams and Russert were stunned by Keith's blistering criticism of the speech as well as the real concern about the widening of the conflict with Iran (It was right after Russert interrupted Keith and asked, not politely, to talk) and even Matthews was onboard.  All I have to say is thank god for Olbermann otherwise the rest of the MSM would give Bush another pass.  It shows that the Bush people still know how to appeal to the press's vanity by holding an anchors (and Tim Russert) only press conference so the anchors report the White House spin.
