Must Read Op-Ed’s — November 7, 2010 #tcot #p2

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming…

Oh, how we quickly forget!  Just three days after one of the craziest elections in modern history, we have moved away from the issues of the people once again and back to the game.   What is the game?   At this point, I do not think even Democrats or Republicans know the answer to this quite profound question.   One thing they do know how to do is play it!

On Friday, NBC announced that they had suspended Keith Olbermann without pay.   Is this for real or is this political theater?   The New York Times is claiming that NBC is milking Olbermann’s suspension for PR value.   This Week had this to say about the matter:

Privately, NBC execs have said that they don’t intend to fire Olbermann, and that they see this as “a chance to draw a distinction between the journalistic standards of their news division and the standards of Fox.”

This could very well be a valid point since both Countdown and The Rachel Maddow Show made comments on Keith’s suspension.

Here is Thomas Roberts discussing Keith’s suspension on Countdown.

Here is Rachel Maddow who shows the vast campaign contributions via competitor Fox News.

Oh, the beauty of the game!   Now, can we go back to important issues — like figuring out why more gay people are voting Republican?
