No more liberal media

O'Reilly, Olbermann, and GE.

One day it might make a great movie (a sort of Network 2) - how FOX News was able to out-maneuver MSNBC and destroy the seed of an almost actual liberal media before it took root. But given the nature of the story, it's highly unlikely such a movie would air on NBC or FOX.

Well, maybe on FOX.

After years of feuding between MSNBC's Keith Olbermann of FOX's Bill O'Reilly, the heads of both networks sat down and arranged a deal, brokered by Charlie "CBS News and ABC News and NBC News are not influenced by the corporations that may own those companies" Rose, to lay off each other since it was bad for business. Good for ratings, true. And maybe even good for journalism. But not good for business.

  • I can't, in general, watch any of the blabbermouths on the political shows, and I agree that FOX, by and large, plays by its own rules. I was really surprised that Olbermann caved in. Just reaffirmed my opinion that he's a fraud.
