Hey us guys in chesapeake see things the same.

Ahem...have your heard his co-host Alan Colmes? Everyone gets to suffer through half of the show one way or the other. It's pretty fair.

Re: Is MSNBC right to demote Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews?

the one thing that turns me off about Hannity is, if he doesn't think his point is being heard, he resorts to yelling. that, and Hal Turner. Hannity is nothing but a bigot
as for the show, its the one show on fox i don't mind watching. at least until Hannity starts off in a tirade. which is usually every show

Re: Is MSNBC right to demote Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews?

Weird I never heard about this till just now cause I watch Keith Olbermann almost every day. Always thought of him as a post-modern Ed Murrow - one of the few, and I mean count em on one hand, commentators who doesn't give two shits about the corporate mentality and conservative bias behind mainstream media.

He seems to think of himself as Ed Murrow also. Of course Murrow was not afraid to engage his opponents on television. Olbermann only invites people who agree with his viewpoint to be on his show. The goal seems to be to find out who can say "You're right Keith" the most in one television segment. Of course Howard Fineman is at a huge advantage because he's been saying "You're right Chris" for ten years now and phonetically it's an easy transition.

Re: Is MSNBC right to demote Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews?

My problem with Hannity/O'Reilly, etc is that when someone calls in with a different view point, they start interrupting and don't let someone finish their point. I've heard many a valid call dropped because someone is an 'idiot.' Im sure this happens on both sides, but as far as I know there aren't a ton of democratic talk radio shows.

O'Reilly calls himself an independent, which simply isn't true. Sometimes he makes my blood boil, sometimes he makes excellent points. I remember he was on the radio at work and he said 4ish years ago that we needed to take R&D away from gas manufacturers and put it in the hands of somewhere like MIT. Give them money and they'll come up with an alternative to gasoline.

Olbermann never bothered me when I watched countdown. Thats a good format for him, regular news. Definitely not.
