Olbermann's Special Comment on FOX News' Clinton Interview
I know in the past when I have said things like "That woman had the smelliest crotch this side of the equator!!", or when I told a young mother in the grocery store "Your kid's head is the biggest I've ever seen!!", I understand when people accuse me of hyperbole. But my idiocy aside, Keith Olbermann is by far the most informative and honest newsman on cable television. I know that is like praising a retarded kid because he doesn't double dribble during a pick-up game of basketball based on the sorry state of affairs T.V news is in nowadays, it's just good to not have to put that mental filter on when you watch a news show. Because his hero was the great Edward R. Murrow, at the end of each broadcast Olbermann says the parting words that Murrow made famous, "Good Night, and Good luck". I find his choice of words fitting, because even though I've been known for my brand of hyperbole, I do feel that Keith Olbermann is the Edward R. Murrow of our day to be quite honest. Even though there is no comparing the bravery that Edward R. Murrow showed as he was committed to telling the American people the truth despite the poisonous atmosphere surrounding Joseph McCarthy and those communist witch-hunts, I see a reminder of said bravery in Olbermann, a man unafraid to tell it like it is despite a news media that has been neutered during the entire Bush Administration.
