REAL TALKER: KEITH OLBERMANN

Calling this 'real talk' doesn't seem to be enough of a trueism.  This might be the realest talk you'll hear all year. We've got to take this shit seriously, and keep our ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES from fucking us time and time again.  I'm looking at you Obama. I realize you are only a puppet/ mascot with Wall Street's hand up your ass guiding your every move.  It's the unfortunate reality of the presidency, but it is what it is. I'm just really tired of constantly having my intelligence insulted, -being handed all of these double-decker shit-sandwiches, while you try to convince me how delicious they are.

Keith Olbermann is a douchebag and a coward. he never has anyone on his show who disagrees with him. then again, when anyone and everyone who disagrees with you is an "idiot", "evil", "insane", "racist", and "hates america" (as Keith believes), it's kinda hard to have an adult conversation with someone with an opposing viewpoint. talk all the shit you want about Fox News, but at least they treat their ideological opponents with enough respect that those opponents are willing to come on their air and have a debate. Keith Olbermann is a petulant child who is incapable of having a civil conversation with someone who will call him on his bullshit. he's a total arrested development case.

I agree he doesn't have much of an opposing viewpoint represented on his show, but I dont really think that the Republican/ NeoCon/ Tea Party, perspective needs much more airtime. After all, Fox has an entire network dedicated to furthering the right-wing corporatist agenda. Not to mention, the other networks generally fall in line behind Fox with only a few exceptions. I can understand if you think Olbermann isnt as accomodating to positions that fall outside of his own worldview, but I dont think that that in itself means he is not corrct in his position the vast majority of the time. That's like saying that a biology teacher needs to teach creationism in addition to science, in order to be 'fair' and 'balanced'. Promoting or giving equal time to bullshit points of view is just watering down the already highly inadequate ammount of truth-telling in the national news media.
