“The Occupy Wall Street movement has basically been a four-week, downtown Manhattan live-in which has spread to cities all around the country, causing the media to move its coverage dial from ‘Blackout’ to ‘Circus.’  (Beat.)  Those were really the only two settings it has.”

— JON STEWART, The Daily Show



So because your penthouse that you keep your family and Emmys in is surrounded by it all and it makes your commute uptown four days a week longer you call Occupy Wall Street a circus?
A guy has to broadcast something, I suppose. If you’re still butthurt about it, count all of your Viacom money again.

I think that MSNBC's Keith Olbermann is on his way out (again)

He K.O. ed himself again. While Intrade hasn’t picked how much longer Olbermann will last, I predict that he will released from MSNBC by the middle of January, 2011…just a guess.

You just have to look at Olbermann’s work history - the guy is insubordinate because he knows how good he is at his job, what ever that may be. Many think it presumptuous for him to take on the mantle of Edward R. Murrow, much like Napoleon reputedly coronated himself Emperor of France. Olbermann suffers fools poorly - a trait that is a double edged sword in this very polarized day and age. Olbermann’s fans see so many journalists, pundits and citizen activists wading and wallowing in dumbth that is not just part and parcel of their ideology, but has become the foundation that ideology, even to their own detrement. As a result, Olbermann has a career in reporting on how The Emperor has no clothes each weekday — reportage on such rhetoric is not the to the taste of Jon Stewart, Steve Capus or Tom Brokaw. They don’t see it as straight news; never mind that dumbth replaces fact and substance in what passes for political discourse when reported by Objective Journalists™.

Those who object to the tone of Olbermann’s work while giving little, if any, heed to the content of that work will bring the situation to the brink; Olbermann’s insubordinance will soon become the tipping point.

The President hasn’t been shy about going to the places where people are getting their information and trying to make his case. And I think that’s what he’ll do on the show.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs • Admitting that Obama’s reasons for going on “The Daily Show” are a last-ditch effort to build some momentum going into the midterms. Which, let’s face it, there are much worse ways to do that. We just wish it wasn’t so calculated. In other Jon Stewart-related news, TBD has a pretty entertaining takedown of all the media pundits who have been freaking out over “The Rally to Restore Sanity” and “The March to Keep Fear Alive,” many of which are along the lines of “omigodhe’sgonetoofarthistime” screeds. Use your heads, guys. It’s no worse than any other rally. source (via)
