Diego Vasquez of Media Life Magazine serves up yet another healthy does of KOLove from the MSM with his witty and inciteful piece, The Olbermann factor: Keith doing Bill
The Fox News Channel host...has become Olbermannâ€™s personal punching bag over recent months. Whether thatâ€™s coincidental or causing â€œCountdownâ€™sâ€? recent ratings surge is debatable but certainly interesting.
Missy was so distaught over this bit of puffery that I felt compelled to defend her honor by writing an email to Mr. Vasquez:
I read your recent article on Keith Olbermann where you speculate as to the cause "'Countdownâ€™s' recent ratings surge".
I have to wonder if you are aware that from their peak during and immediately after the 2006 Winter Olympics, parts of which were broadcast on MSNBC, the ratings for Countdown with Keith Olbermann have been in steady DECLINE over the past four months.
Over the past two months he had dropped back into fourth place in a three network race (he is also behind Nancy Grace on HLN). In order to make itself seem more competitive, the PR department at MSNBC has taken to promoting Countdown's ratings in the "25-54 Demo"; Countdown has now slipped back to behind Paula Zahn in the much-touted demo.
As I cover Keith Olbermann on my site, I am sure my readers would be fascinated to learn more about this "recent ratings surge" to which you refer?
We will post a link to the correction and apology here.
