Matea Gold of the Los Angeles Times hits all the usual MSM high notes in singing the praises of Keith Olbermann in her profile in today's paper - his paltry ratings are part of an "upswing" at MSNBC, his inane "special comments" are "blistering critiques, etc. The highlight of course is that Gold quotes me to Keith and gets a reply:
Robert Cox, who runs Olbermann Watch, a critical blog that monitors the cable news host's comments, said that Olbermann employs some of the same tactics that he decries.
"I think at the end of the day he has, by and large, become that which he has criticized - a demagogue like Bill O'Reilly," said Cox, a management consultant in New Rochelle, N.Y.
Olbermann rejects the comparison.
"I'm not trying to whip up a political frenzy," he said. "If I was out there every night beating people over the head with this, I would become a Rush Limbaugh. That's not my goal. I don'st make the facts up to fit the political viewpoint that happens to parallel what it is I'm trying to express."
