    Purpose? Ratings for one, which I think will be higher if the commentary is understandable, at least somewhat insightful, and responsible. I saw KO only when someone would post a video, or when another show would quote him.

    Buckley's show used to be on my local PBS station on Sunday mornings. Once a week. Fox opinion shows are on every night. If WFB were still around and taping, I would still watch him AND Fox. AND listen to Prager and Medved and Levin on the radio. Which is to say you can have both.

    I don't agree with the line that good ratings equate to lack of substance. There's nothing wrong with being informative AND entertaining.

    you JUST said this...
    Free speech for them and everyone else gets pushed aside.
    You obviously are implying that Olbermann has now somehow had his right to free speech infringed in some way. He does not HAVe a right to a cable show. He is still free to express his opinions where ever he can.

    Please do not interpret. It only makes you look silly while you construct your strawman. At least Ray Bolger could dance and entertain us.

    Your extremely narrow view only serves the corporate right wing interests so ably assisted by things like the Citizens United ruling and tonights events. But I suspect that is your true intention all along.
