From Countown for January 5, 2005, the words of Keith Olbermann on MSNBC's newscast of record:
Nationally, these are leaders who won re-election last year largely by portraying their opponents as incapable of keeping this country safe. These are leaders who regularly pressure the news media in this country to report the re-opening of a school or a power station in Iraq, and which regularly defies its citizens not to stand up and cheer when something like that is accomplished. Yet they couldn't even keep one school or power station from being devasated by infrastructure collapse in New Orleans.... Most chillingly of all, this is the law and order and terror government....
For many of this country's citizens, the mantra has been, as we were taught in social studies it should always be, whether or not I voted for this President, he is still my President. I suspect anybody who had to give him that benefit of the doubt stopped doing so last week. I suspect also a lot of his supporters, looking ahead to '08, are looking to how they can distance themselves from the two words which will define his government, our government: New Orleans.
No words of criticism for the mayor who had to be cajoled into calling for an evacuation and left 500 busses standing rather than using them to save the lives of his constituents. No words of criticism for the Hamlet-like Governor who couldn't make a decision on federal help for 24 hours.
And needless to say, no super on the screen reading "analysis". Or "opinion". Or "commentary". But then, this is Keith Olbermann. Why should they start doing that now?
