OLBERMANN: And that gets us back, as a last point, to where I started this segment. You were good enough to come on this newscast with me late in the summer of 2003. It was August or September. And by coincidence, either the next day or the day before, Jeanine Garofalo had been a guest on the newscast. And I got called into a vice president's office here and told, "Hey, we don't mind you interviewing these guys, but should you really have put liberals on, on consecutive nights?" That's just over two years ago. Al, can you believe that the country was actually at that point that recently?
FRANKEN: I can believe that. And I can believe - see, when you hear that there's this liberal bias to the mainstream media, I mean, you're attesting to the fact that a vice president at MSNBC was, you know, two nights in a row, to have two liberals, if you can and this is a crude way to do it but if you put divide people into liberals and conservatives, the chances of that are one-half, I mean, essentially, aren't they, or are they one-quarter? I guess it's one-quarter that you would have two of any kind on two consecutive nights.
FRANKEN: But over the span of how many years have you been on now?
OLBERMANN: This is...we're about two-and-a-half.
FRANKEN: OK. After two-and-a-half years, you'd think that might happen a few times.
OLBERMANN: Yes. Thank goodness we have steered out of that time...
