    Air America and Olbermann

    Air America goes off the air for good claiming bankruptcy, and Keith Olbermann gets the boot.

    Looks like it's time for the dems to go balls-to-the-wall in pushing the Fairness Doctrine. Because there's clearly not a big enough watching/listening audience to financially sustain their pathetic tripe.

    Exactly.

    When things don't go the Pubs way it's all "WAAHH!! MAINSTREAM LIBERAL MEDIA has SOOOO much power and brainwashes everyone in America with their agenda"

    But then when the shows get canceled it's all "No one watches or listens to liberal news. HA HA!! No money. No viewers."

    Make up your freaking minds.

    Few weeks back the guy is screaming at the top of his lungs "I'm a socialist!!", correcting a fellow traveler who had the audacity to call him a liberal or a progressive, and that's their new 8PM Guy.

    You can't make this stuff up.

    That network is a couple of clowns short of a circus.
    Hehe, they try too hard too sound liberal sometimes. On a side note, I just saw Michael Steele on Rachel Maddow. I actually thought he did really well considering the platform. He said he'd like to see Newt be a candidate and duke it out intellectually with Obama.

    Reportedly, ratings have improved with O'Donnell.

    More power to MSNBC, they are free to hire "opinion show hosts" of any stripe they like, same as FOX or anyone else.
