Media Still Full-On In The Tank For McCain

These great graphs come courtesy of Media Matters and document both air time and number of clips shown on Fox “News” and all other networks over the past couple of weeks. Notice anything in particular? Maybe that not only does Fox “News”, which is to be expected, but all other media organizations give hella more time to the GOP lairs than to the Democrats trying to save this country from George Bush’s mess.

Olbermann and Mathews are Out— Gregory is In

with 2 comments

NYT is reporting that MSNBC is kicking Mathews and Olbermann to the curb for acting like little bitches during the Democratic National Convention. Sources say “employees” (Read: Brokaw and Williams) at NBC were embarrassed by the two bickering little girls.

As such, and effective immediately, David Gregory will take the top stop at the fledgling network and Olbermann and Mathews will go back to doing what they do best: running their mouths.

So ends the great liberal network experiment. I have to wonder how much of this was brought on by intellectual hand-wringing at the top, where being called an elite and ideologue by the likes of a whore chaser like Bill O’Reilly or a liar like Sarah Palin can cause great self-reflection and many sleepless nights. “If Bill O’Reilly thinks were ideologues, maybe we are.”


Nevertheless, it’s over.

Here’s a clip of Jon Stewart making fun of the MSNBC mess last week:
