This one is not strictly an article or interview with Olbermann, but he is discussed. It is a profile of Brian Williams, NBC Anchor who vents to the writer, Phil Rosenthal about his personal opinion of the NY Yankees. Then the discussion veered into the propriety of news anchors sharing their opinions with their viewers on-air.
"I think you get one of those a career in my line of work," he said. "[Walter] Cronkite chose to use his chit on the Vietnam War that he witnessed. But I think you only get one."
Hmm. Maybe he needs to clue Keith Olbermann in on the one-opinion limit per career that real news anchors get. Olbermann seems to think he's allowed one with every newscast.
Williams confirms in the article that Olbermann is still expected to do "essays" on Nightly News. But it's been how many months now since Olby signed his new contract deal and he still hasn't shown up yet on the Mothership? What are they waiting for?
Opines the Chicago Trib:
But if Williams himself has had the urge to go Full Metal Olbermann, he has resisted it on the air, saving his commentaries, such as they may be, largely for the privacy of his home."Ask my wife. She's the only one who gets to hear that. I'm not sure it's great," said Williams."
Sounds like Brian Williams is one journalist who understands you don't mix opinions with your job as a news anchor. Now if Olbermann would only get that memo, then perhaps he'd be as well-respected as Williams is.
