Olbermann uber alles

April 22, 2010

A weeklong anchoring stint on MSNBC by Donny Deutsch ended abruptly on Wednesday, and four people briefed on the decision said the cancellation stemmed from an unflattering mention of that channel’s No. 1 anchor, Keith Olbermann, a day earlier.

(…)

The segment in question also included clips of Bill O’Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, and Glenn Beck. One of the guests, the radio host Hugh Hewitt, said that Mr. Olbermann and another MSNBC host, Ed Schultz, are “the biggest hate-mongers in television.”

Olbermann and MSNBC both deny that Olbermann was part of the decision process.

This is disturbing. An apparently uniquely qualified nominee is lost because the GOP and Dems are to busy trying to make political points to actually think about national security.

    I’m inclined to take MSNBC’s side regarding that specific denial: would you allow Keith Uberdouche to make any decisions more complex than “Paper or plastic?”
