  1. Re: “Concha: Lack and Olbermann may meet re potential return to MSNBC”: NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Keep that attack dog off TV!

    • besides the recent ESPN thing (where it’s ESPN’s fault) ….he’s been removed from things for a reason …

    • Seems ill-advised to me. He has lost many of his loyal viewers who now see him in a much less favorable light. Plus his ratings were far less than stellar at the time he departed MSNBC.

      But with the surprise re-hiring of Alex Wagner, Joy Behar, Sherri Shepherd and Newt Gingrich by their former employers I guess it’s possible.

          • Oh I see.

            I am reminded of the time during K.O.’s peek popularity the ratings leaders on HLN, FNC and MSNBC were Nancy Grace, Bill O’Reilly and Keith Olbermann.

            Arguably the most controversial, outspoken, opinionated and most hated by their many critics of cable TV hosts. I am not sure ‘ironic’ is the right word to describe this, but I did find it interesting and it speaks to what really attracts viewers.

          • I don’t think you can put O’Reilly in Olbermann’s camp. He may like the cut of Trump or Christie’s jib, etc, but in general he is far less partisan than Olbermann.

          • Oh, I agree.

            Bill O’Reilly is clearly partisan — some nights more so than others — but he never strikes me as being on a scorched-earth mission to attack the other side like K.O. frequently was.

  2. Listened to the Fox News headlines on the way to work this mornings. Mixed reaction. On the plus side, they did breaking coverage of Senate testimony about Afghanistan situation. Also, the sports guy was funny and Gerri Willis from FBN did business update. The big negative was entirely too many commercials /promos during about a 25 minute car ride. Overall, is great for about 15 minutes but then it’s back to the 80’s music channel.
