    The one thing you all need to realize with Overbite(I love that) anyway. Kieth Olberman is not a journalist he is a propagandist. The person before said it best when does he ever bring a guest on that disagrees with him? When they do he enjoys taking pot shots at them. and the worst person in the world when I ask… when are there any Democrats given this fine award?

    Olbermutt is real loser. He spends 75% of his show mentioning OReilly just to prop up his pathetic ratings. Does he think his witty sarcasm is cool?? He is a real tool. Oreilly's ratings dump on him because Oreilly gives both sides of the story.

    I think Keith is an honest, gutsy, counter point to the right wing FOX sheep. Fox is an adjunct of the White House and all their newsfolks are what's wrong with America..fair and balanced, what Bull!
    I feel the same way that two of my hero's feel about Keith Olberman. He is bright, gutsy, funny, and in my opinion has the best newsprogram on cable. George Carlin and Bill Maher feel the same way, so it's good enough for me and I love the company I'm in.

    Watch out O'reilly…keith's ratings are creeping up..you are a pompous, egomanical, blowhard, preverted coward and it just showns how dumb americans are who watch your drek of a show. Check the facts, respect your guests who disagree with you and try very hard to even get close to your mantra of fair and balanced. You not only look like joe mccarthy, but you act like him, …he was destroyed by the truth and so will you as well.

    Keith Obermann is a left wing loony. Don't get me wrong – there are plenty of right-wing loonies also. I have tried to watch the show but it is so stupid one cannot bear it.

    I put him in the same class with Maher, Franken, etc. For NBC to trot him out as a serious journalist – well it just tells you where NBC is. Oh, for the days of Walter, Chet and David.

    I've watched Olbermann's show a few times now and I agree with the dude who said Keith is a one trick pony….apparently bad mouthing your competition (Fox) is all you need for a “news” format at MSNBC…lol. O'reilly might be a blowhard, but at least his show focuses on some postiive information once in a while and it's certainly more entertaining than the hate Olberman throws up all over his audience every night. I don't see or hear the different bewtween him and right wing crazies like Michael Savage. There is no difference. No matter which side of the isle, left or right, hate is hate, bro. At least the right seems to give the USA benefit of the doubt first.

    First of all, I’d like to see the numbers that both Keith and O’Reilly claim to be in control of. Second, Keith came on the other night (03/6, maybe?), and someone made mention of it earlier, and said that his show was beating Brit Hume’s. Congrats Keith, you’re beating someone that doesn’t really matter. Like I said, I’m still looking for a credible site that states who is leading against who. One thing that O’Reilly does do is give both sides a fair argument. If one side doesn’t come on, that’s their fault. He’ll give the conservative the first word and the lib the last word and vice versa. If he doesn’t, prove me wrong. That’s their “Fair and Balanced” mantra the whole time. And besides, he only “threatens” with his voice against loons like Franken and others that talk so much bull shit, it’s not even fair for ears to listen to.

    I think the biggest difference is Olberman does not pretend that he is not biased. That is my one issue with O'Reilly, why does he have to pretend that he is not spining? O'Reilly has an opinion (some I agree with some I don't) and he passionately defends it – and spins when he does it – but pretends that he is not biased. Count how many times he says “FAR left” vs. “far right”. This week I haven't heard Far Right once, “Far Left” every single show.

    Olberman doesn't pretend that he doesn't have an agenda therefore he does not need to bring on dissenting point of views – that is why Bill O does.

    I do like how Olberman keeps O'Reilly honest (O'Reilly does have a tendency to believe whatever comes out of his own mouth – when he asked Jon Edwards for an apology after Bill was totally mistaken and wrong was hillarious, he has some sack!).

    O'Rilley- Sure he will invite you to come and will not let you speak. He who has the power of silencing you… controls the show completely- that is why generally the people that come to his show are weak at best and not serious
    debaters.

    I'm a conservative and I watch everyone and all news networks periodically throughout the week so I can assess all the respective agendas. O'Reilly is a pompous blowhard, Hannity blares the same 5 points nightly, Chris Matthews is a whining shill, and Olbermann is a sports-guy who aspires to be an insightful, intelligent and oh-so-clever political pundit–failing miserably. And hey, MSNBC: back off on the Olbermann extreme closeup. The dude's massive noggen filling up my entire big screen is frightening. I can listen to his diatribe without having to count his nosehairs in doing so. Seriously, you've got to back the camera off.
