A post-Election Day comment:

Keith Olbermann is out at MSNBC.
Of course, we’re not going to be told the real reason why this happened. We can only guess that the network denials are the real reason. So when you see this written …
Spokesman Jeremy Gaines would say only that the acquisition of NBC Universal by Comcast, which received regulatory approval this week, had nothing to do with the decision.
… that means in a couple of days you’ll see a story that says he was dumped because Comcast wanted him out.
So why does this show the myth of the liberal media?
According to the AP: Olbermann’s prime-time show is the network’s top-rated.
Now since when does a network dump its top rated show?
Yes, Olbermann is without a doubt to the left of most broadcasters. And supposedly MSNBC is “the liberals” network. But the equivalent to this is if Fox News dumped it’s top rated show. And short of being caught in bed with a dead boy, there’s no way Glenn Beck is going to be dumped by that network.
I wonder how long it’s going to take for someone to put Olbermann back on the air. We know where right-wing extremists go when they get dumped from networks. But a comparable dumping ground for the left doesn’t exist.
