    I won't talk about him, when he stops talking

    But for now, he's doing a fine job ruining far right republicans!

    Gosh, I never realized how left wing MSNBC is! They just about as bad as fox!

    Yeah, Olberman, minus the drugs, isn't any different than Limbaugh, just the opposite team.

    Yeah MSNBC is just like Fox, they tell the truth, and not just mindless right wing republican talking points and outright lies. Oh wait I guess their not like Fox at all :rolleyes:

    Perhaps he's objecting to the sort of attention, namely the kind that's telling him he's a pompous windbag that needs to kindly return his pie hole to the closed position.

    Umm...seriously- having listened to both, I'm going to need some proof of that.

    Proof? Watch the intro he does in that video ... resorting to childish name calling for what reason exactly? Make those that enjoy watching him feel better about hating all things republican, or to incite the republicans watching? He's a sensationalist, who takes a nugget of fact and runs with it - just like Limbaugh.

    My point is that nobody listens to Rush or watches Olberman for unbaised, objective news coverage - it's not what they do.

    I suppose. However, Olberman caling Limbaugh out on things he's actually done is hardly a bad thing. Also, Olberman hasn't been permitted to be the spokesperson for the Democratic Party. The Republicans have let that happen with Limbaugh. If they were smart, they'd rid themselves of the fool. And really- most people simply hate all things Limbaugh, not Republican.

    Agreed.

    True, I did over-generalize.

    The sad thing is- Limbaugh used to at least have some good points to make back in the 90's. Now, he's become so full of himself and such an attention whore, it's embarrassing. After the drugs, divorces and using his maid to get his drugs, it speaks volumes that anyone on the right would take him seriously anymore. The guy has completely lost it and is probably just this side of sane. Now he wants people to leave him alone? Sorry- he made his bed.

    When FOXNoise gives over their morning 3 hours to a liberal democrat, then they might be equal with MSNBC. Of course, they'd also need to hire the liberal equivalent of Pat Buchanen to live in the FOX studios. Seriously, does Buchanen even have a home? He's pontificating on MSNBC at least 12 hours a day.

    I'm not so sure about this. Yes Olberman does get heated, but for the vast majority of the time he has facts and evidence to support, instead of the standard GOP method of debate: This is how X will happen in my mind so thats how its going to happen and it doesnt matter if the facts I use arent true (then later gets called out on the facts, and ignores it).

    Perhaps its the superior linguist skills that bothers you? It comes off as cocky to many, but I've never been one to support dumbing down just to gain the approval of others.

    Again, nobody watches Olbermann for objective fact-based news reports. If you do, or you trust everything he says to be fact - without checking it yourself - I'm sorry, but you need to open your mind and do some research for yourself.

    Nope.

    I never said it wasn't biased, only that for the most part Countdown relies on evidence and facts to get the point across while the likes of FOX just stick with their commentators opinion and "facts" that are flat out lies half the time.

    I kinda like Rush. He says really crazy things. You never know what your going to hear when you turn on the radio. ;)

    Unfortunately, it's kind of like listening to a horror movie. ;)

    Definitely true.

    Yes you do. You'll hear "Democrats are stupid and evil" and "conservatives are the awesomest most smartest people around" and "Obama is a socialist" and "I'm such a smart guy". Or some variation on those themes.

    Lather, rinse, repeat.

    But hey, if you like your opinions formed for you, he's your man. They don't call 'em Dittoheads for nothing...

    So did Charles Manson..but I don't like him. The GOP should take action to make it clear this isn't the party they want(or is?)

    Make Colin Powell a big player in the GOP(and its interactions with people, media and the dems) Then the GOP might actually move on!
