I don't know about Matthews but Olbermann for sure. He's way too political and partisan to be objective. Plus, they didn't help their case by beefing on the air.

I haven't watched either in a long time but if what I have heard about the way Olberman has been acting on TV then yes to him. As for Mathews, he always seemd mostly harmless. If the issue is that there has been a noticeable shift in journalistic bias then yes also. In the end I don't thnik enough peopkle people watch MSNBC for it to really matter.

I like Chris Matthews, and would prefer that he be on air as often as possible for MSNBC's coverage. As for Olbermann, good riddance. The sooner he gets off the air the better. He's the Offiss of TV News. Just a one-note sour puss. The sooner Olbermann, Dobbs, Cafferty, and O'Reilly are off the airwaves the better.

I couldn't agree more.

I've always liked Matthews even though he seems to be yelling all the time.

Never cared for Olbermann doing the news or sports. He's a douche.

I first suspected something was up with Olbermann back in the 1990's when he would roll his eyes while doing NASCAR highlights - as though stock car racing was somehow beneath his dignity. What an a-hole.

Clearly MSNBC has done the right thing. The worst moment of Keith's summer "reign of terror"? I think it was him trying to break in and talk over Giuliani's convention speech "station identification" style at a critical moment and then apparently having his own mike shut off by the network in mid-sentence. You could sort of see the writing on the wall there with that one.

I don't have a problem if a news person leans to the left but let it be known up front and don't hide you bias as so called neutral reporter. Take Bill O'Reilly its known up front his politics and he does not hide them from the viewers which is my concern with the other big News Outlets.

Enough with O'Reilly and his no-spin garbage though. I mean c'mon who is he really fooling?

I actually think O'Reilly is less right then many reporters are left but it is his style that gets him so reviled. He is a blowhard by any account politics aside and that his biggest issue. I really dislike his absolutism attitudes.

i actually like o'reilly. he's a straight shooter, he will call anyone out at anytime. i've seen him bash reps just as much as dems. the reason some people dislike him or consider him an extreme rightwinger is because he's really the only reporter to call out and bash dems. everyone on other networks have no trouble at all calling out and bashing reps but none of them do it to the dems.

Aren't you leaving out Hannity in that as well?

I don't mind Hannity. Neil Cavuto on the other hand. And don't get me started on Ann Coulter

I hate to ask.. But does anyone really like her? And I don't mean, "Eh. Sometimes she makes good points," but really and totally respects the majority of her views?

Absolutely, they're both idiots and both costing viewers to the network.
