The always excellent Political Diary, a subscription-based e-mail newsletter from The Wall Street Journal's Editorial Page and OpinionJournal.com, weighs in on Olbermann's Nazi Salute.
Today, John Fund writes:
MSNBC's Keith Olbermann is a witty guy and his nightly show bashing President Bush and all things Republican often demonstrates just why liberal talk radio has largely flopped -- it doesn't have people as talented as Mr. Olbermann.
But then even liberal talk radio might not put up with Mr. Olbermann's antics, which last week involved appearing before several hundred TV critics and holding up a face mask of arch-rival Bill O'Reilly of Fox News while raising his right arm and delivering what he called a "hilarious" Nazi salute.
"MSNBC can spin this all they want but it's hard to understand how Olbermann thought this was a good idea at a time when real news anchors are in harm's way as Israel is attacked by the Muslim incarnation of the Nazis," says Robert Cox, who monitors the antics of the MSNBC anchor at Olbermannwatch.com.
Roger Ailes, the CEO of Fox News, was also not amused. He appeared before the same meeting of the Television Critics Association yesterday. After much prodding, he called the MSNBC host's behavior "over the line... the use of corporate assets for a personal vendetta" against Mr. O'Reilly. "Clearly he has no viewers except those he gets when he attacks Fox News," he concluded.
Indeed, if success is the best revenge for slights, Mr. Ailes plans to revel in it this fall when top-rated Fox will mark its 10th anniversary with a "Thank You America" tour. Fox hosts will fan out across the
country to do live versions of their shows from ten cities, including Boston, Chicago, Dallas and San Diego. No word yet on whether Mr. Olbermann plans to shadow the tour by making funny faces behind the Fox anchors as they do their location shots.
