MSNBC has decided to replace Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews as co-anchors of election night coverage.
The boiling point appears to have come during the GOP convention when Olbermann criticized MSNBC for showing a September 11th themed video prepared by the Republicans.
MSNBC executives, who had publicly defended their anchors’ roles while privately monitoring them throughout the political season, made the change over the weekend after discussions with Olbermann.
In regards to Olbermann, he seems to be the only one in the media who realizes, “the Emperor has no clothes on!”
Cable news outlets and TV networks, all owned by corporations with a huge stake in this election in regards to changes in FCC rulings, have been holding back important information to the public in regards to the future of this election.
It was done in 2004 with President Bush’s questionable service record in the Texas Air National Guard by former CBS News anchor, Dan Rather. Rather was ceremoniously dumped at anchor after the GOP managed to complain to CBS higher-ups.
We’re now seeing it with McCain’s VP pick, Gov. Sarah Palin. During her acceptance speech last week, some delegates on the convention floor began chanting, “N-B-C, N-B-C.”, an allegation of bias against the network. Meanwhile, crucial information about her dealings as Mayor & as Governor are not being reported properly by media outlets.
Complaints by the GOP has led to an unprecedented show of compassion to Gov. Palin and has led the McCain campaign to a boost in the polls.
The sequestering of Olbermann and Matthews the comes the question…”Who started crying first? The ‘gutless coward’ Republicans or Corporate?”
