MSNBC Drops Olbermann, Matthews as News Anchors

Oh what a gift! I can't stand even flipping past these two guys. Especially Olbermann who is rude and obnoxious.

The Washington Post is reporting that MSNBC is removing Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews as the anchors of live political events, bowing to growing criticism that they are too opinionated to be seen as neutral in the heat of the presidential campaign. Gee you think? I never noticed...... Just because Olbermann, regularly assails President Bush and John McCain on his "Countdown" program, and heaped sickening praise on the acceptance speech of Democratic nominee Barack Obama doesn't mean .... Ok I get it.

David Gregory, (the guy who was drunk on the Don Imus Show) the NBC newsman and White House correspondent who also hosts a program on MSNBC, will take over during such events as this fall's presidential and vice presidential debates and election night. That's not much better.

The move, confirmed by spokesmen for both networks, follows increasingly loud complaints about Olbermann's anchor role at the Democratic and Republican conventions. He drew flak Thursday when the Republicans played a video that included a tribute to the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks, saying that if the networks had done that, "we would be rightly eviscerated at all quarters, perhaps by the Republican Party itself, for exploiting the memories of the dead, and perhaps even for trying to evoke that pain again. If you reacted to that videotape the way I did, I apologize."

No Keith you were alone. Well maybe Chris Matthews agreed.....
