I’m not a fan of Olbermann’s politics or his sports commentary, nor do I watch his show or watch MSNBC.
Having said that, it is the height of hypocrisy for MSNBC to pretend their politics are not hard core left-wing, or that the public is some how immune to understanding MSNBC’s politics are hard left.
Maddow is a socialist — and they replaced a conservative to put her on the air.
But for MSNBC to try and maintain this fancy of even-handedness strains credibility.
It is sort of like how soon-to-be-former Senator Feingold used to refuse to eat dinner with lobbyists (one pictures steak and wine) but would stop at McDonald’s to eat.
Meanwhile, this McDonald’s-morality would then go about destroying the country financially by voting for the bailouts, the stimulus and ObamaCare.
MSNBC’s idiotic policy of restraining the rights of free speech of Olbermann is equally bankrupt.
While MSNBC pollutes the airwaves with left-wing “analysis” by Olbermann and Maddow, they insist that somehow giving money to candidates will taint either their “news” or their objectivity as a news source.
What planet are they living on?
Give Olbermann back his rights of free speech. Let him donate to whomever he wants. Does anyone really think it will impact his view of the world or his “reporting?”
Plain and simple, the left have lost their mind over money in politics. They remind me of the prohibition movement — idiotic and ultimately far more destructive to the country by funding the creation of the mob — than allowing the beer, wine and whiskey to flow.
