So, now we are at the end of the line. A very sad end of an amazing line. With Comcast now ready to destroy MSNBC after Rep Barton approves it on Jan 11th, we are now done. MSNBC idiot Heads understand it's done and, Olbermann knows it's .

But NBC executives say that the cable channel is far better positioned to withstand an Olbermann departure than it might have been a year ago. Rachel Maddow has emerged as a genuine star, Ed Schultz is gaining momentum, Chris Matthews has been energized by the midterm campaign, and Lawrence O’Donnell has successfully launched a new show in the 10 p.m. hour previously reserved for Countdown reruns.


I guess it's ok. Only because I expected this years ago. The difference now? The Supreme Court destroying the elections even further than the we-don't-audit-anymore thang. So now we are reaching the "liberal media" having no Olbermann. Maddow is good. She is too giggly and loves the entire system too much for my tastes, but good. Larry is not my type of guy simply because of his love of the system. Ed, well, he wants to be an odd left-winged meat eating everyday Limbaugh. Still don't get it.

What’s more, the incoming bosses at Comcast, which will soon close a deal to buy NBC from General Electric, are a more buttoned-down crowd, and people at the network expect less tolerance for Olbermann than Zucker has shown over the years.

They tolerated their biggest draw?! Are you kidding me? Liberal media for sure.

I really have no words at this point. After Olbermann is gone, so is my cable. I can listen to Malloy, Rhodes and others on the radio. I don't need a giggly version on camera giving me half as much info. Bye MSNBC.

After Olbermann is gone, will you watch MSNBC?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
