Keith Olbermann Leaves MSNBC

I am not a fan of Mr. Olbermann's. But I do regret his departure. In a media culture dominated by the right wing talking heads on FOX he was really the left's only serious response. And yes sometimes Beck and Co. were in serious need of having their windbags popped by Olbermann's often skewering commentary.

I, too, regret this. Oblermann was the guy to watch whenever Republicans were in power, just as O'Reilly is the guy to watch when the Democrats are in power.

actually, Olbermann had no problem holding the current administration's feet to the fire, either.

i didn't like his over the top gags and stunts, but his special commentaries were usually spot on for me.
