It may be a stretch to call a communist rag a part of the MSM but not much of one so after consulting with leading experts have decided to call The Nation magazine an MSM publicaiton.
Daphne Eviatar provide the usual fawning over Keith Olbermann but works in the Laugher of the Week:
Olbermann, who denies any partisan leanings and whose background doesn't suggest any, insists his job is to report on what's really going on--even if the public is loath to believe it.
Keith goes on to analogize, "In sports, if a center-fielder drops the fly ball, you can't pretend he didn't," he says. "There's also an awareness of patterns, a relationship between what has gone before and what is to come that is so strong in sports coverage that doesn't seem to be there in news reporting."
Think about that statement for a moment. According to Keith, his special insights into current events are due to his unique ability to understand history and detect "patterns" - a skill that otherwise doesn't exist in journalism today. In other words, Keith is the only true journalist reporting today.
And don't miss that bit about how a sportscaster develops a special objectivity because either a fielder catches a ball or does not. This is the same guy who made his name as a broadcaster at ESPN doing a show that offered non-stop opinion, on a network that spends hours each day opinining about player personnel moves, team mangement decisions, coaching strategies, in-game analysis, personal motivations of players, coaches and owners. Has Keith ever listened to the Dan Patrick show on ESPN Radio or WFAN? Does he really believe that sports media outlets confine themselves to simply reporting whether a player hit the ball or made the catch?
