Keith Olbermann - An Honest American

I am so thankful to have Keith Olbermann on MSNBC as one of the lone voices of truth in television-based politics. While Faux News inevitably 'spins' the truth with programming such as "The O'Reilly Factor" and "Hannity & Colmes", Keith Olbermann continues to tell it like it is. Honest, eloquent, and ruthlessly direct, Olbermann is one of the few media personalities, along with Air America Radio and Bill Maher, who call a spade a spade and point out the elephant in the living room.

Over the past few weeks the vast right-wing conspiracy has been attempting to re-write history, trying to blame President Clinton for 9/11. First we were barraged with the Disney/ABC piece of garbage known as "The Path to 9/11" which was admittedly fiction yet just realistic-looking enough to sway ignorants. Then, we saw an interview of President Clinton by Faux News' Chris Wallace attempting to sandbag him for not getting bin Laden when he had the chance.

If you haven't seen Keith Olbermann's "A Textbook Definition of Cowardice", I urge you to watch it now. It's amazing, it's powerful, it's truthful, and I certainly could not have said it any better myself.

Mr. Olbermann, thank you so much for giving us truthfulness in television media. If you ever decide to run for president, you've got my vote!

I've been saying the same thing! Keith Olbermann, on MSNBC's Countdown, is the best program on TV. How absolutely refreshing to finally have a TRUTHFUL commentator. One who isn't afraid to call a liar, a liar (Bush Inc.). Evidently, others fear for his safety (and job) as I do. Knowing what was done to Dan Rather when he started to reveal Bush's shameful "military service", I can't imagine the networks' republican owners being willing to allow the American public to hear the truth for the first time. Mr. Olbermann has my vote for president - hard to imagine having an honest, intelligent, non-war-mongering, well spoken, truthful person such as he, in charge of our administration. Wouldn't it be WONDERFUL!!!!!

you got it, lucy. wonderful. we can work toward that, I think -- anyway, keith is only one in a sea of much-smarter people than the boobs we have running Warshington. I really think many keen Republicans could even be better. congressional approvals of about 16% reveal something of a revolutionary attitude on the part of the American citizenry.
