It's official - Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann were forced out of their political anchor positions at MSNBC.
Please folks - get a grip, hold back those tears, hug each other for support. I know its devastating news, but we'll just have to live with it.
Conservatives (like me) have railed against the blatant bias by these two clowns, especially Olbermann who let no insult, no lie, no slander against myself and others remain unspoken.
Senator John McCain's campaign got involved, going as far as writing to NBC to complain about the appalling coverage of Sarah Palin after her nomination.
And until recently, MSNBC gleefully paraded Mathews and Olbermann as the 'new face' of its network.
"....After months of accusations of political bias and simmering animosity between MSNBC and its parent network NBC, the channel decided over the weekend that the NBC News correspondent and MSNBC host David Gregory would anchor news coverage of the coming debates and election night. Mr. Olbermann and Mr. Matthews will remain as analysts during the coverage.
The change — which comes in the home stretch of the long election cycle — is a direct result of tensions associated with the channel’s perceived shift to the political left. "
“The most disappointing shift is to see the partisan attitude move from prime time into what’s supposed to be straight news programming,” said Davidson Goldin, formerly the editorial director of MSNBC and a co-founder of the reputation management firm DolceGoldin.
Looks like Chris, Keith and the squabbling children at PMSNBC are getting a time out. The grown-ups are back in charge.
