It's been less than two weeks since Keith Olbermann's man-love interview of Al Gore in which Olbermann sycophantically sympathized with Gore's criticism of "the media" for covering "trivialities" as part of a propaganda effort by the Bush Administration that allowed "catastrophes" like Iraq and Global Warming. Flash-forward to last night's wall-to-wall coverage of world-class triviality, Paris Hilton, and we find the OlbyLoons who frequent Countdown's Newshole blog "shocked, shocked" to find the Keith is a hypocrite.
I've enjoyed seeing the show become more overtly liberal over the past year or so, and I've appreciated how your increasingly frequent Special Comments have provided a much-needed counterpoint to all the noise coming from the Right. I have a lot of respect for you and for the show. But you make it harder every day to hang onto that respect...would [Edward R. Murrow] have quoted National Enquirer stories about them as if they were part of the news? The National Enquirer, Keith. When did the basement floor of journalistic standards settle so deep that a notorious gossip tabloid - quoting unnamed sources - was worthy of quoting on a national television news program?...please at least have enough respect for your viewers to stop pretending you hate doing those stories, or that you're not part of the problem.

What I love about Countdown is that it expects more from it's audience and doesn't treat us like we're idiots. When there is more entertainment content than news, there is a big problem.

Please take some time to read Al Gore's new book. I counted on you to give real reporting and insigngt to what is going on in the world and the government, (at least for the beginning of your show). To dedicate the entire first portion of your show to Paris Hilton, tells me you are a sell out to the "keep the attention diverted" crowd. I am disappointed in you now and feel let down by someone I trusted to give us real insight to the real happenings in the Government and world.

You know what? You're lucky I even kept watching tonight after that gleeful "I lied!" You don't know what kind of expletives I wanted to use tonight (and am refraining from using now). To be quite honest, Keith, I hope the ratings for tonight's show go right into the toilet where they belong.

I wonder what Edward R. Murrow would be reporting today? The two-tier justice system is definitely worth mentioning but unfortunately coundown is part of the problem in the publics overall disconnect with a little something formerly known as um... REALITY when it endlessly goes after ratings at the sake of um... OUR VERY DEMOCRACY.
