Do you have a positive or negative view of Keith Olbermann?
Why are his ratings relevant in any way? His show makes MSNBC money, and the question and topic have jack to do with his popularity.
He was a second string jock sniffer who now fancies himself an intellectual. He's an asshole without the academic chops of the equally arrogant Ann Coulter
I can't say one way or the other because I've only watched him once...and that was on youtube when a co-worker told me to watch one of his closing segments.
I agreed primarily with what he said in that particular segment, however, his presentation style was a little annoying to me...seemed typical of the talk radio over the top personalities. I've heard a lot of negative things about him from people on the right, haven't heard a lot of praise for him from people on the left....so as I started...I really have no opinion...but there wasn't a voting option for that.
do you happen to know his academic background?
I love it when Olby fans gets all bent out of shape when I mention his ratings stink.
Someone said he does things for ratings. I was simply pointing out that he's a failure. That's all.
Also, Olbermann makes them money, and he's their highest watched show. Why get rid of your show with the best ratings?
I understand you don't like the guy, most liberals don't think highly of him either as shown by this thread, but when you say that some guy who has nearly a million people watching his show every night a failure you look silly.
I do. Are you comparing it favorably to Coulter's? You might want to check a little more closely.
