One of journalism's most provocative and outspoken voices, Keith Olbermann delivers independent, razor-sharp commentary on the top five news stories of the day, interviewing news subjects and regular guests and contributors. A long list of regular contributors includes filmmaker Michael Moore, Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibbi; John Dean, former White House counsel to President Richard Nixon; comedian and activist Maysoon Zayid; Kate Sheppard, Mother Jones energy and investigative journalist and author Jeremy Scahill. Interspersed are such segments as "Worst Persons in the World," "Time Marches On" and Olbermann's occasional "Special Comment." The show's regular guest host is David Shuster. Written by
First of all I want to start out by saying I am not left or right. I am a live and let live kind of guy. Now that being said I found this news show informative and at times entertaining. I generally don't get into news shows but this one got my attention for some reason.
George Carlin was on it and said this was the best news show on TV. I can't say that but it was very good in my opinion.
But there was more than the hot topics of the day. Keith help raise money for free clinics, and helped a family who's house burned down while the fire department watch it because they forgot to pay the annual fee for fire protection. And of course "The Worst Person" segment.
Keith really shook things up here raising the ire of Bill O'Riely, Glenn Beck and others. I respect someone who isn't afraid to call out someone and point out the nonsense they trawl out and call it news. I can't help but to think that's why he was suddenly fired from MSNBC. He really rocked the boat. Why else would you cancel your top rated show? Current TV is another story.
Is Keith a nice guy or a total jerk? I don't know but I have to respect him for putting it on the line and not be afraid to call it like you see it and let the chips fall will they may.
