Olbermann on O’Reilly and Ratings

This is a hilarious clip of Keith Olbermann hammering Bill O’Reilly on his ever lowering ratings. I love Olbermann.

    yeah, he’s good. I liked him as a local LA sports guy years ago; glad he’s succeeding in the Big Time.

    I too love Olberman and can’t stand how BOR progandaizes over the airwaves, but Olberman continues to mislead his viewers on ratings as well. If one just listened to Olberman, you’d think BOR was sinking fast, when in fact BOR still has 2.8 times more viewers than Olberman does in the 25 – 54 yr. category and BOR has 25% more total viewers than CNN, MSNBC, HLN, and CNBC COMBINED. While Fox is seeing its viewership degrade somewhat, its far from a sinking ship, a ship I’d gladly like to see sink. Here is the report: http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/original/feb06vs05.pdf

    Its also heartening to see my favorite political news analyst, Chris Matthews, significantly grow his viewer base over the past year. Truth may win out yet.

    Ed – could you explain the waiting period to curb abusive posters?

    I don’t get MSNBC, so this is the first time I’ve ever heard of Olbermann, but based solely on that 1 min 49 sec clip I would gladly have his babies if such a thing were possible. Get crackin’, Science.
