Good Night, and Good Luck
If you, like me, have been wondering where the media's balls are, I've just located them. Keith Olbermann's been hoarding them under the Countdown desk.
Go watch this epic and brilliant editorial on the politics of fear inspired by the despicable remarks by Donald Rumsfeld.
Seriously, watch it now.
Is there an Emmy category for "Fucking Badass"? There should be, and Olbermann has it locked up.
Keith Olbermann deserves to be doing the news in an era where he would be one of three guys on television, not marooned on a second-rate cable network.
Olbermann humbly quotes Edward R. Murrow at the end of that piece, and claims not to be worthy of the words. He's wrong. He is worthy. And he's the closest thing to a modern-day Murrow we've got.
Bloggerman has the transcript.
