TV Newser keeps us abreast of the ongoing soap opera, which we might call "Days Of Our MSNBC Lives."
MSNBC is doing its best to tamp down the rampant rumoring, but Phil Griffin et al. can't explain why Keith Olbermann is "anchoring" the GOP convention from New York City.
And Chris Matthews didn't do anything to lessen the tension when he said of Olby:
"He's very professional, very orderly in his way," Matthews says of Olbermann. "He operates in a very professional, predictable...well he's obviously a strong performer. But he obviously operates in a very orderly...and I don't mean this as a put-down but...predictable. He's a very strongly predicable person in the way of his professionalism. I'm uneven and, what's the right word, flamboyant and impulsive."
C'mon Chris: Next time, say what you really think: Kommisar Keith is a Kontrol Freak.
And FTV Live adds this:
Many long time NBC staffers feel that the crew at MSNC is dragging them through the mud. Last night at the RNC, Veep pick Sarah Palin in her speech said that she was not going to Washington seeking the opinion of "reporters and commentators." At that point the crowd started angrily chanting NBC, NBC, NBC.
Republicans obviously hate NBC--not just because it is the parent to MSNBC (don't try to pretend otherwise!), but for the snarky anti-Republican attitude that fills such NBC talent as Andrea Mitchell.
So NBC = "Nothing But Contempt." That's the attitude that NBC/MSNBC show toward Republicans and conservatives, and as we saw last night, both on the stage and in the audience, the feeling is mutual.
