    Keith Blubberman should just give up. Even having the boyish looking Rachel Maddow doesnt help. Week after week Blubberman spews his hatred for fox news and its the same thing. Fox news rips that moron to shreds. Hes a has been loser and the numbers prove it. Just bow out with whatever grace you have Blubberman

    Get as grip, Adam.

    KO has doubled his audience in the past year and is far and away the highest rated series on MSNBC. He's a little too frantic for my tastes, but there's no denying that his show is on the way up. Is he going to challenge BOR? In the demo maybe, but obviously not in total viewers. FNC in general skews very old, while MSNBC is quite a bit younger (in cable news terms, anyway).

    Yes, Doug, Adam is considerably “over the top” with his obsession with KO (just as KO is with FOX and BO), but the fact is NBC is going to be tainted with their sister (MSNBC) because of KO's rabid, left-wing rantings… especially when he interviews Tim Russert or Tom Brokaw and considers himself in the same league as a true reporter. His “in the tank for Obama” reporting (cough, cough) is so obvious that surely KO's most loyal fans would have to jetison their intellectual integrity to claim he's merely reporting news when he rants about McCain's indorsement by Preachers Parsley and Haggie, and screams for Hillary to run from Furraro while railing on those who pause to question Obama's affiliation with Preach Wright. KO crossed the line a long time ago and should be on an entertainment network or SNL, but not be posing as a reporter. Those on NBC/MSNBC who creamed at FOX's “slanted reporting” has been disarmed in their criticims by one of their own “personalities”.

    I used to watch KO last year, but haven't seen it since then. I do agree though that he really shouldn't be considering himself in the same league as a true reporter – his show is definitely news infotainment. Then again, BOR is pretty much the same thing on the other side, only for the geriatric set.

    Reagarding KO's expertise, wasn't he originally in sports anyway?

  • Doug

    Oh, and just to clarify, I watched both BOR and KO before I tired of all of the “news” programs. The atmosphere on BOR is much more staid and canned than KO, which feels fresher and younger (not going into the actual content of the show). This is probably a reflection upon the demos that each is striving for (KO 25-54s, BOR 35-64s).

    Yes, K.O was a sports newscaster out in So. Cal in the beginning, but he got CANNED from that job. Now he’s doing his extreme left wing slant and has the same guests on every night. Just in case most of you don’t know, his main guest ( Rachael Maddow ) from Airhead America is a known lesbo and is the best that Keith can come up with on his show. We threw him out of the L.A. market and soon will throw him off the national market. Some people will never see the light and Keith is one of them. His infatuation with Bill Oreilly makes him look like a staulker. By the way, Keiths nickname out in L.A was Keith Slobberman. As for my signoff here, Good Luck and Good Riddance.

    Godd words Jim! I view the Olbermann show much like a commuter speeding thru traffic, surfing from one relevant news broadcast to another, stopping only for a moment to glance at his car wreck of a show. KO has become the journalism equivalent to the interstate fender bender-much do about nothing. He simply slows our daily commute in search of trust worthy information. Keith need to lighten up and stop pretending to be a newscaster and MSNBC needs to stop the bleeding. Anytime KO sits down in a “news” forum like the poltical debates, the network cuts a credibility vein.
