    I'll say it again:

    Keith Olbermann understands something very important: If you treat your viewers like adults, give them respect, and tell them the truth - they will follow you anywhere.

    Rachel Maddow knows that, too.

    So how come most of the media doesn't get it??

    One of the things that drives me the MOST nuts about other newspeople is when someone lies right to their faces, and they just blithely nod and smile... and never challenge a damned word.

    Wherever Keith Olbermann ends up, he'll have an audience, because he gets it - and he gets US.

    One other pet peeve - why is it considered "radical" to be a liberal on a news program?

    One of the biggest things the GOP has done to fuck up the media is spread this meme that being conservative is "normal" and being liberal is "radical".

    And the MSM BUYS INTO IT.

    "An uprising of the reasonable is our only chance." - Keith Olbermann
