  I tried...I really tried!
I've always heard that some people believe that MSNBC is a good source for news. Well, since a lot of the Olympics has been on that very channel I figured it would be a good time to check it out. I've come to one conclusion about MSNBC and it's not that they're a good source for news. The conclusion I've come to is that they should change their name.

MSNBC should change their name to the anti-FoxNews channel. I watched two programs yesterday. Keith Olbermans show and the show that follows that one is one hosted by Dan Abrams. These guys don't report the news, they report their issues with FoxNews. FoxNews did this and FoxNews did that and Bill O'Reilly did this and Bill O'Reilly did that and Sean Hannity did this and Sean Hannity did that!

Keith Olberman thinks that O'Reilly shouldn't talk about John Edwards because he once had issues with a female employee. Apparently, at least from what I picked up from Olberman, O'Reilly paid some dollars to shut some woman up and I guess that means that he's not allowed to report on it happening to anyone else. Of course, O'Reilly never ran for president, but what do the facts have to do with anything.

I got the feeling watching Olbermans show that he really really doesn't like O'Reilly. Funny though, I never heard a word from O'Reilly about Olberman. About the only thing I've heard from FoxNews about Olberman was a while back I heard that Rupert Murdoch, the owner of NewsCorp, the parent company of FoxNews, said he had to fire him, Keith was Crazy!

Of course, Keith's response was..I know you are, but what am I? Actually he said, Murdoch had to pay me $800,000 and who knows how much money I've taken out of his pocket at NewsCorp, so who's the crazy one. Somehow, he believes that people normally watch his program. But it's on opposite a show that claims to be the number one watched show in cable news, so I don't think he's taking all that much money away from Murdoch.

The other thing I noticed is that they seem to want to turn everything that McCain or his cronies say into a race issue. They played this clip of McCain with Joe Leiberman last night and then they sat there and talked about how what was said by Leiberman and McCain was close to, if not downright racism. I never heard it, saw it, smelled it, or touched it, but somehow they found a racist angle to this clip.

But hey, now I know where all the FoxNews haters get their "talking points". They watch MSNBC. I'll continue to watch MSNBC for the Olympics, but I'll switch to whatever channel the Olympics switch to when it's over.
