There used to be a time 8-10 years ago when I thought Olbermann was a good guy, and Fox News was a sick joke on the American people. Looking back now though, I think my opinion was completely unfair and unbalanced…
Why? I think it’s because Bush and Cheney were so horrible, and I was so opposed to the wars and almost everything the republicans said and did during those years, that ANYBODY that openly stood up against the republican establishment looked good by default… even Olbermann and MSNBC.
Since there’s been a regime change now however, I’ve been able to put together the bigger picture; Obama and Pelosi are also horrible (although at least Pelosi is now in the background), and I’m opposed to almost everything the democrats are saying and doing too!
So what does this all mean?
1. The leadership of both political parties is horrible.
2. I’m opposed to almost everything BOTH sides do.
3. It’s really easy to look good when you oppose tyrants.
4. It’s really easy to look bad when you defend them.
5. MSNBC never turned into the “liberal Fox News,” it always was the “liberal Fox News,” it was only the ruling party that changed.
Last thought: Is there any reason for the Southern Poverty Law Center to cherry-pick information out of a horrible tragedy, and then use it to create a potential witch hunt? I had heard the SPLC was bad, but it’s hard for me to accept that conclusion without actually seeing it. After watching the first few minutes of this video though, I now completely understand what the critics were saying. What a couple of wieners these two are…
