Bloviating Zeppelin: Opinionated? Polls?

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Opinionated? Polls?

MSNBC Drops Olbermann, Matthews as News Anchors
By Howard KurtzWashington Post Staff Writer Monday, September 8, 2008;
MSNBC is removing Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews as the anchors of live political events, bowing to growing criticism that they are too opinionated to be seen as neutral in the heat of the presidential campaign.

David Gregory, the NBC newsman and White House correspondent who also hosts a program on MSNBC, will take over during such events as this fall's presidential and vice presidential debates and election night.

The move, confirmed by spokesmen for both networks, follows increasingly loud complaints about Olbermann's anchor role at the Democratic and Republican conventions. Olbermann, who regularly assails
President Bush and GOP nominee John McCain on his "Countdown" program, was effusive in praising the acceptance speech of Democratic nominee Barack Obama. He drew flak Thursday when the Republicans played a video that included a tribute to the victims of the Sept. 11 attacks, saying that if the networks had done that, "we would be rightly eviscerated at all quarters, perhaps by the Republican Party itself, for exploiting the memories of the dead, and perhaps even for trying to evoke that pain again. If you reacted to that videotape the way I did, I apologize."

The DEM/MSM continues the media meltdown.

McCain leads Democrat Barack Obama by 50%-46% among registered voters, the Republican's biggest advantage since January and a turnaround from the USA TODAY poll taken just before the convention opened in St. Paul. Then, he lagged by 7 percentage points.

Uh-oh. Is it even remotely possible that an ancient, doddering, balding fossil like McCain can best the Barack Hussein Obamessiah?

I have always hated Keith Olbermann!! He has always been a very left leaning big mouth. I love it when these journalist get the big head and forget what their real job is and then get the boot!!!

TF: MSNBC has done its level best to fire Hard Aport.

RG: Keith still has his TV job, just not his "live" political coverage job.

James: hey, nice shellacking of the Colts last night, eh?? Is this a portent of things to come with the Bears this season??

Olbermann and Matthews have been taken off election coverage and delegated to only commentary. I hope their replacement means more honest coverage and that Olbermann and Matthews learn their lesson well. Shut up!

Good posting, thanks BZ!

I heard about the Keith Obermann and Chris Matthews thing as soon as I returned home today, BZ. That's good news to everyone except the liberal moonbats and of course Obermann and Mattews! :)

As for the possibility of McCain winning, yep! It's possible. Thank goodness!

It's been soooooooooooo quiet across North America as conservatives in the polls are leading in both countries.. won't last long though... after they have their gathering of the one mind, they'll all come out screeching about nothing, and how bad everything is, as usual, with a vengeance ...

Its about time, Olbermann is horrible. Although, I don't know that Gregory is much better, which is why I never, ever watch MSNBC.

bummer that Olbermann still has his job, frankly. I don't usually wish for someone to lose their livelihood, but THIS guy deserves it. Not a SHRED of dignity or even handedness and he slams FOX?!!

But, seems to me like the msm's going way too far; maybe they'll keep it up and this election will be in the bag for McCain. Fingers crossed.
