Not long ago I asked a friend at MSNBC what exactly the cable network saw in Keith Olbermann. He is not a journalist, he is a disgrace to the title of "news anchor", his ratings are a running joke - MSNBC ratings go down when he comes on and go up when he goes off - and he routinely embarrases himself by pilfering "news" from web sites and blogs, getting his facts wrong and otherwise putting our a shoddy, sloppy news show. The answer: "he's our Jon Stewart". If by that they mean Keith is a joke then maybe they have a point.
The problem with "being Jon Stewart" is that it requires being funny - a sense of comic timing, knowing the difference between "snarky" and "bitter" oh, and good ratings. Some modicum of stage prescence helps.
MSNBC would be lucky if Keith were "our Uncle Floyd".
Exhibit A in Why Keith Olbermann is not anyone's Jon Stewart from last night's trainwreck of a show called Countdown.
