In a column entitled The Anti-Bush Anchor Howard Kurtz of The Washington Post quotes Keith saying:
"I find myself currently aligned, not in the sense of having membership, but being in the same part of the ballpark as a lot of liberals," says the host of MSNBC's "Countdown."
"While his main guests are journalists, he sometimes interviews Democratic lawmakers but almost never brings on Republicans or conservatives, except for MSNBC contributor Pat Buchanan. "There are not a lot of conservative guests who are happy to be on the show," Olbermann admits."
MSNBC President Rick Kaplan, apparently drunk, calls Countdown the "best show on television".
"In the same way that people who think the president needs to be supported more have turned to Fox, a lot of people who think the president needs to be taken on more have found a friendly voice in 'Countdown.'
At least Kaplan has defined the purpose of the show - taking down President Bush. Interesting because unlike O'Reilly Factor, which is presented as news analysis (i.e., Bill O'Reilly's opinion on the news), Olbermann is billed as a "news anchor" and Countdown as "news programming".
Fortunately for clear-thinking readers everywhere, Kurtz cites the foremost authority on Keith Olbermann - OlbermannWatch:
Liberal bloggers have been praising Olbermann, but one online critic, Robert Cox, recently launched a new site, Olbermann Watch, where a contributor said: "Hello! Earth to Krazy Keith! When was the last time anybody who disagreed with your spin was permitted to sit for an interview with your almightyness?"
NOTE TO HOWARD: Long-time readers know we have been up and running since 2004 but thanks for the plug none-the-less.
UPDATE: John Amato at Crooks and Liars is a little less forgiving of Howard for calling OW a "new" site.
UPDATE h/t to commenter OW Plagarism...I edited the post to fix the quotations.
