-- here's one election team anchor team I should say we won't be seen together anymore in this election cycle MSNBC.
Announcing this week.
The hosts Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews have been bumped from the anchor desk.
When MSNBC covers presidential debates.
And other special events in the future so Jane did did that network make the right call in given those two guys the boot.
I think it did because they were taking a lot of heat I understand that Tom Brokaw and Brian Williams and others at NBC were uncomfortable with the way that.
Certainly Bill O'Reilly and other people going after the night after night I think legitimately about how can you have people who were trashing bush.
-- anchoring the Republican convention you really can't there's some lines that are still.
Sacred and that is still is sacred blue and they were crossing -- I'm just took them this long to wake up to an obvious fact at least Olbermann has another job -- be football comic veteran NBC -- -- against the well and and after well after tingle went up the leg present company of the throughout -- -- throw up politically.
I think I think wasn't his Felix Gillette who writes for the mere observer had a sort of behind the scenes take percent but not only were.
Where it was obvious on the air.
That David Matthews Olbermann had moved MSNBC -- and Rachel -- went way to the left but that people like Tom Brokaw like violence like Andrea Mitchell had been complaining internally.
To not only Phil Griffin MSNBC but also the -- happens -- the head of ABC news.
That's the Jeff zucker that chairman of NBC universal and Jeff Immelt who -- General Electric.
All of them knew he runs he runs a whole is oh overall corporate -- And they all knew about these complaints and are happy.
Is long thought they're going to ratings until the meltdowns at the conventions when they had ample blood but there just was felt -- that decision consciously made at the very highest levels of GNBC.
But -- -- there were all kinds liberal bloggers who said that.
You know Jeff Kimmel and MSN and NBC NN GE were caving in the McCain campaign god help us you know I've been had we listened to liberal bloggers but.
I think that -- they have real serious credibility problem on that was seen reputations of some of some serious journalists and look there's nothing wrong with that -- mad -- and Keith -- having a show on having a little perspective you know we have Shaun Hannity and that's perfectly fine.
But when you have are in frankly -- -- -- racial -- and commentary I don't the innocent public that we had a problem is you have.
Then anchor varying situations for the supposed to replace three journalists and they're just not.
And it was little strange that a seed -- that they hate bush or McCain else hated Hillary Clinton.
I mean I mean it was it was just the left sliver of the Democratic Party they're speaking to equal opportunity -- to her.
