MSNBC host Keith Olbermann perhaps went further than ever before last night in his special comment about the 9/11 anniversary, slamming the Bush administration for their “criminal neglect” in allowing the attacks to occur and identifying the continued exploitation of 9/11 “sociological pornography” as the only reason that Bush hasn’t been impeached.
Olbermann said that the anniversary of the September 11 attacks had been turned into a brand name - “9/11™” and that such propaganda has “sustained a President that long ago should have been dismissed or impeached.”
Olbermann continued, identifying 9/11 has the only thing that has kept “(Bush) and his gang of financial and constitutional crooks in office,” while they escaped blame for the “malfeasance and criminal neglect that allowed the attacks to occur.”

I applaud Keith Olbermann. He is obviously upset over being snubbed at the RNC. And he is obviously pissed enough to lay it all on the table! This is what we have been hoping for folks, honest journalism and straight in their faces!
P.S. Starred and Flagged. Good stuff!

That lunatic is really one of the more disgusting "personalities" (if a bowel movement can have a personality) that exists in this world. He subscribes to the "shock" theory of journalism - the wilder and more "out there" he can be, the more of the radical fringe he can get to worship him, which is all he wants in the first place.
By keeping the population in a state of artificially heightened apprehension, the government-cum-media prepares the ground for planting specific measures of taxation, regulation, surveillance, reporting, and other invasions of the people’s wealth, privacy, and freedoms. Left alone for a while, relieved of this ceaseless bombardment of warnings, people would soon come to understand that hardly any of the announced threats has any substance and that they can manage their own affairs quite well without the security-related regimentation and tax-extortion the government seeks to justify.
