Does Anyone Take Keith Olbermann Seriously?

Why is he so angry at just about everything?

The nastiness he displays on MSNBC can't help his trademark on the pretentiously named "Football Night in America."

Also, note to NBC: it's one thing if you want to permit Olbermann to display his opinions -- unvarnished and frequently impolite -- on MSNBC. But do you think it's a good idea to let such an idealogue be your front man on "Football Night in America"?

Dick Enberg or Ray Scott he is not.

Most of us look to the sporting world for relief from the troubles of our daily lives, and not for a constant reminder.

Jettison Olbermann.

Give us someone in the mold of Jim McKay, Jack Whitaker and the like.

So true! And the worst was when NBC let him cover the Democratic/Replican National Conventions -- you can be a reporter, or you can be an opinionated editorial guy... but you can't be both!

Agreed. He's entitled to his opinion, but not his own facts, and he can be an inflammatory demagogue. I like a good argument as much as anyone, but he's as annoying on the left as some of the Fox people are on the right.
