  •  There are HUGE differences... (0+ / 0-)

    ...between Beck and Olbermann.

    Olbermann has thoughtful, fact-based discussions with credible and knowledgeable guests. Beck makes up delusional fairy tales that he supports by drawing an arrow from one point on his blackboard to another.

    Just because both sometimes utilize fiery speaking techniques doesn't make them the same. It's what they're saying that matters, not how they say it. Beck is a liar. That's an important distinction.

    •  I don't think... (0+ / 0-)

      that I care to defend Beck, b/c you're likely accurate.  I don't watch enough of him to argue your point.  However, I don't think Olbermann is as clean as you think.  I won't call him a liar, but I would definitely give him lower marks than Hannity.  Why? may ask...  I tend to give more street cred to the host who is willing to invite on opposing view points to have a debate.  I've never seen Olbermann invite an opposing view on "Countdown."  Am I wrong?

      •  Lower marks than Hannity??? (0+ / 0-)

        Hannity is one of the most dishonest people on TV.

        Olbermann has stated that he does not want to have just another screeching heads, political debate show. He wants to address issues in depth from an openly disclosed point of view. He is not pretending to be unbiased and he doesn't want to battle with Republicans whose talking points are entirely predictable. He's not against that type of show, he just thinks that there are already plenty of them.

        Again, the difference is what they are saying, not the tone or the format of the show. Hannity. like Beck, is a bald-faced liar.
