Got an e-mail from Fisherville Mike over the sad plight of Keith Olberman and Cenk Uygur with the classic title:
He links to the Baltimore Sun column that talks of the irony of people railing against corporations while working for one of the largest ones out there:
That’s a good question. And hosts like Olbermann and Uygur only answer it after they have left MSNBC.
In the end, the only way for MSNBC hosts to keep faith with the ideology they espoused on the air was to denounce MSNBC.
I can see the 30 seconds ad now
Poor ideological children. They spent their time fighting for the weakest among us. Now they are cast out and displaced from their comfortable home. Once they were loved by
Million hundreds of thousands thousands, now they are displaced with few prospects and even fewer viewers and not even a book deal.
Look at these poor faces and do what your heat tells you.
I’m sure this PSA will be running on every screen in Berkley and San Francisco.
