ELECTIVISION: Olbermann Sounds Off

MSNBC commentator thoroughly breaks down the Clinton campaign's handling of race.

The following video was included in this article:

Despite the legitimate criticisms that can be said about Keith Olbermann, this is a pretty complete smackdown. He did his job as a commentator on this one, and there is something obviously personal at stake as well. Suprisingly compelling viewing for a cable news network.

  • This type of commentary is rare in mainstream media, thanks for pulling this out of you tube and posting it. He makes some compelling points about how Clinton has been running her campaign and what needs to change. I have never been a fan of Keith Olbermann but this is the type of commentary that is not in main stream media and it needs to be seen more (I could still deal with a little less near-outside-voice from him, but this time I'm chalking that up to how impassioned he is in giving this commentary). He even goes out of his way in the opening seconds of his commentary to address his previous support from the Clintons and to make clear his intentions for the upcoming commentary. Well done. He backs up his statements with primary documents and makes an informed argument based on them. If another mainstream talking head can create a credible, rational response to him, I'd love to hear it. Also, if the Clinton campaign addressed these issues in a more transparent way, I'd like to hear that as well. No matter what, this is going to be a historic election, so lets make sure it is historic for the right reasons. I never thought I'd say this seriously, but thanks Keith Olbermann.
