Keith Olbermann, A Former Hero

I used to really like Keith Olbermann. Sadly he has strayed from the great canon of journalism, objectivity. When he isn't involved
in his humorous, if ego-laden, spat with Bill-O, he is in constant Hillary attack mode. I simply can't stand watching anymore. He puts an anti-Hillary spin in every political question, every discussion.
I appreciated his early denunciation of the war and his refusal to join the lemming like press corps in the drumbeat to conflict. However he has taken to bashing Hillary at every opportunity. I can only conclude that there is some misogynist demon he is dealing with (or rather not dealing with). Mere political difference could not explain this level of vitriol.
His shtick used to be novel and funny. Now he seems a bit like a left leaning Denis Miller, a tad pedantic, and more than a tad repetitive. Keith Olbermann is rapidly becoming the worst journalist ......IN THE WOOOOORLD!
