    I think your problem is that you think ratings mean more to Ailes than elections. Roger Ailes plays chess not checkers.

    You like Olbermann, which proves definitively you aren't capable of recognizing a loon.

    No, they aren't parting company, but the daily 5PM slot will be open to do stuff more related to the 2012 election. Roger Ailes is a conservative Republican who cares very much about elections and he will program the slot taking into the coming elections.

    Whether or not Olbermann is a loon or not is not relative to what I wrote.

    Glenn will do just fine, his lowest ratings were more than twice anything on MSNBC.

    My only concern id that I will not be able to watch his new show because I have a TV system that sucks.

    I like that he lets the bad guys make themselves look bad on video, thusproving his points.

    Not a fan of Beck, though I love how he gets under the skin of liberals, who in turn somehow support the psychopathically unstable Keith Olbermann.

    I'm of the opinion that Fox needs to oust O'Reilly and Hannity as well, because neither offer the most cerebral take on a nightly basis. Their GUESTS do, but not them.

    But then I turn over to the clown/freak show going on over at MSNBC, and I realize it can get much worse. Between Maddow's ever-growing Adam's apple and Chris Matthews constant spittle in the corners of his mouth, the pickins are slim.
    There are a lot of generalizations going on here. There are a fair amount of people on the left who couldn't stand Olbermann either, myself included. He tried too hard to be the anti-O'Reilly.
