Olbermann, the "editorial page" of NBC

From TVNEWSER, NBC CEO Jeff Zucker sees Keith Olbermann's Countdown as the editorial page of NBC.

"For most of its day [MSNBC] is the rest of the front section of the newspaper and then brings an editorial point of view from its editorial page at 8 o'clock at night,"

It's about time someone in the MSM admits a little bias. In fact he stated he felt "incredibly comfortable" with Olbermann's show. What is it with these guys and tingly feelings for each other?

Unfortunately, Zucker failed to admit that Hardball, the Nightly News, the Today Show, and Meet the Press are just as biased and editorial in nature. They just aren't as blantently obvious about it as Keith.

Nice. Now if we could only get Fox to admit they're a bit biased as well, we could all stop speculating.

Honestly. I'll give you your due. MSNBC is biased. But you can't honestly tell me that Fox isn't.

And as far as I'm concerned, if you own up to what you are, you can keep being it.
