The fallout from Keith Olbermann's embrace of the sordid anti-military statements of William Arkin continues. Now one of NBC's military analysts has formally severed his relationship with the network, and cited among his reasons: the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann.
In his latest column for the San Antonio Express-News, retired Colonel Ken Allard, author of Warheads, decries NBC's "precipitous retreat from journalistic and ethical standards". And who shows up as one of his examples?
Not only were no apologies given and no pink slips issued for Arkin's outburst, but on his MSNBC show last week, Keith Olberman went out of his way to defend this "valid criticism" of our military.
Allard's closing comments:
But sometimes the only way to show where you really stand is to vote with your feet. And so with great reluctance and best wishes to my former colleagues, with this column I am severing my 10-year relationship with NBC News.
Our best wishes to Col Allard on his future endeavors, with our hope that he is able to continue imparting the wisdom of his experiences and insights in a venue that is more fair and balanced.
