Edward R. Murrow wannabe Keith Olbermann did another one of his rating-boosting “special comment” attacks on the Bush administration tonight. This time, he slams “Mr.” Bush:
A few excerpts of Olbermann’s rant:
The attempt to link, by the simple expediency of one word—“media”—the honest, patriotic, and indeed vital questions and questioning from American reporters, with the evil of Al-Qaeda propaganda.
One must wonder why Keith likes to refer to himself as patriotic, when no one is questioning his patriotism. Guilty conscience?
Whatever the true nature of al Qaeda and other international terrorist threats, to ceaselessly compare them to the Nazi State of Germany serves only to embolden them.
Why does Olbermann get angry when al Qaeda and Bin Laden are compared to Nazis? Does he not think the two are as much as a threat as fascism was during Nazi rule?
Other news on OlbyPlanet: it looks as if Keith isn’t the MSNBC superstar he thought he was, as the cable dwarf may close down its operations in Secaucus (where Olbermann’s show is taped) and condense it to “30 Rock”. Also, Olbermann Watch notes who’s missing from MSNBC’s election coverage promo.
