I knew it was just a matter of time that MSNBC would give Keith Olbermann the Phil Donahue treatment. When Republicans started complaining about NBC being unfair to Gov. Sarah Palin, I knew Keith Olbermann would be blamed for it. Once again NBC played the role of a coward, and bowed to the pressure of the Republicans. Does anyone at NBC think for one second when the Democrats complain to Fox News about Bill O’Reilly’s talking points start with “the loony left or the left wing nuts” everyday, and Sean Hannity’s blatant bias against Democrats on a daily basis, Fox News would demote them? How do you think Fox News rose to the top of the Cable News ratings; by bashing the Democrats? I guess MSNBC want a format like Hannity and Colmes of Fox News, where even the guests tell the Democrat host to shut-up.

David Gregory is slated to replace Keith Olbermann for the remaining of the Presidential race. It’s obvious David Gregory is in favor of the Republicans, he’s just not as outspoken about it as Keith Olbermann is about the Democrats. I have to admit I’m a little biased against David Gregory. During a recent forum on Cspan about how the media covered the lead-up to the Iraq war, David Gregory was the only reporter on the panel who said he thought the media did a good job reporting on the lead-up to the Iraq war. I hear David Gregory on a regular basis when questioning a Democrat, a Republican said so and so, I don’t see anything wrong with that, what’s your problem with it. I've yet to hear him say to a Republican that he doesn't see anything wrong with what a Democrat said.

Tom Brokaw recently said he thought some comments made by Keith Olbermann during the Republican convention were over the top. First of all, Tom Brokaw has turned Meet The Press one of the most prestigious news talk shows in history into a joke. I know Tim Russert is a tough act to follow, but Tom Brokaw has lowered the level equivalent to an interview on The View. I’m willing to bet Meet The Press ratings plummet with Tom Brokaw at the helm; and the viewer ship of the Presidential race at MSNBC plummet without Keith Olbermann. It's a shame the only places America receive the real truth from the media are CSPAN and The Daily Show; this would be funny if it wasn't an American tragedy.
