    •  I appreciate that (6+ / 0-)

      But I deeply respect Keith Olbermann, and what he does for us.  He fought back, in the days when fighting back could have lost him his job, or worse.  He got one of the fake anthrax letters, and has dealt with death threats and severe harassment... all because he is willing to bring us the truth.

      Please don't throw him out just because he doesn't cover every story you think he should.

      Truce?

        Like I said, I watch his show everyday and I appreciate everything that he does, but those two issues that I highlighed upthread, were the things I had issues with.....

        I watch all four of those shows on a daily basis...  It got to the point that I was watching Countdown so much that when my son and I were watching the Sunday night Football game on NBC (Keith is one of the commentators) my son asked me "Daddy, is this Countdown?"

        I had to let him know that before Keith did news, he was a sports guy...
