    At least Joe Scarborough took it like a man, and not a weasel like Olbercrybaby.

I don't know how they lean other than hearsay. I haven't had cable television in 5 years, and I don't really pay attention. I really don't care. You are definately reaching for facts not in evidence if you somehow get the idea otherwise. All I know is that, according to the facts, Olbermann was given an indefinite suspension, and only reinstated him after much noise was made. For the same sin, Scarborough was later given 2 days suspension. Do you see any factual errors here?
    Oh...I dont know...perhaps if you werent so obvious in YOUR biased lean it wouldnt be so easy to make the obvious connections.

    Hey...heres a thought. Unless there is something we dont know (an entirely likely possibility), the network had the first unfortunate opportunity to have to suspend someone when the Olbermann discovery came about, then after policy was established (because be honest...'indefinite' didnt last very long...did it) they gave a set number to Scarboroughs infraction. Of course...MAYBE the difference was Scarborough went to THEM, admotted his infraction and accepted full on responsibility for it, while Olbermann was his typical asshole self in his response. Maybe THAT had something to do with it. Nah......

    A-freqin-men. And apparently the same can be said for Olbermann's supporters.

    ... Did you just use a triple negative? I'm not exactly sure what you were trying say, as your sentence was so convoluted. I ask again: do you disagree with my presentation of the facts?

    I'm not sure the point of what you posted, except "waa, I don't like Olbermann". What is your thesis here?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    I think it's more of an issue of NBC trying to repair its long tarnished reputation as a liberal mouthpiece incapable of serious journalist integrity (us old timers remember there actually used to be such a thing). Of course they went about it without much thought and went after their biggest star first. No doubt that was done in attempt to get a little press for their new and improved position on bias (more likely the appearance of a new position). I think they learned from the Olbermann example that the suspensions need only last a short amount of time in order to cause less inconvenience at the network and the most PR. It could also be that in an attempt to appear unbiased, they go harder on the liberal. Make no mistake, though. NBC is attempting to jiggle the toilet handle of reputation, and we're all being a little manipulated here.
    This post is too funny. If they want to look less biased they never would have recently given a show to Lawrence O'Donnell. He's as left as they come and just came out as a socialist on Morning Joe.
    Catawa is my favorite bleeding heart liberal.

    So in your response you basically prove the concept that there are none so blind as those that simply will not see. Got it.
