There were a few "Special Comments" from Olbermann that, while obviously divisive in intent, really struck a chord with me in general. I remember
the era when the Patriot Act was being passed, when Olbermann was the ONLY journalist I could find who wasn't candy coating the severity of it.
And few remember that, while we, in the fringe, love to suggest that agents might nor might not have tried to sway a newscaster... Olbermann actually
did have a scrape with Feds trying to intimidate him. Something that his right wing, current contemporaries, don't seem to be suffering.
Of course, ultimate, Olbermann is out because Obama is in office and the "disgruntled masses" of today are more inline with Hannity and Beck.
But, give it a few years, give or take... And it'll be Hannity losing his job, and Olbermann, or someone very much like him, stealing the show. The
opposition party always gets the pundit niche.
