Olbermann leaves Daily Kos By: Andy Barr June 17, 2010 01:33 PM EDT
Keith Olbermann announced Wednesday night that he will cease blogging for the liberal Daily Kos over a comment directed at the MSNBC hosts coverage.
Olbermann and some of his MSNBC colleagues surprised their left-leaning fans on Tuesday with eviscerating critiques of President Barack Obamas Oval Office address on the oil spill spewing off the Gulf Coast.
It was a great speech if you were on another planet for the last 57 days, Olbermann said of the presidents remarks, echoing similarly negative comments from fellow MSNBC hosts Chris Matthews and Rachel Maddow.
One commenter on the Daily Kos, where Olbermann has frequently blogged over the years, speculated that the pattern of hosts generally sympathetic to the president bashing the administration was too consistent to be a coincidence.
Cant verify, of course, the commenter began, but a friend in the news biz tells me he got a damaging e-mail from one of his pals at NBC. Something to the effect that their anger was pre-planned because beating up on the president has been good for ratings. I haven't checked, but I'm hearing that Olbermann slammed the speech on Twitter before it even started.

So the fact that they pulled their heads out of their butts long enough to realize that Obama isn’t a god gets them attacked by those who still think he’s a god.
ROFLMAO, nobody in my trailer park watches Olberman anyway!
Now if he could just get someone to de-lice and fumigate the place...
The RATS are feasting on their own. Wonderful.
I’ll bring the popcorn.
Not only have the talking heads on MSNBC breached their oath of personal loyalty to Der Fuhrer, but they are obviously racists. (Only racists question the Annointed One’s divinity.)
...”beating up on the president has been good for ratings.”
....well, what does that say about the mood of the public?...looks like the MSM has figured out why people watch FOX and not their network...it’s because FOX is not afraid to point out the emperor has no clothes.
Does Olbermann know that Obama was a prominent contributor to Daily Kos?
In Olbermann's case, he an O-Puss...
“Something to the effect that their anger was pre-planned.”
You have to admit, it sure did seem fishy.
"If I've lost Olbermann I've lost nutjob America."
isn’t it obvious? KOS is only pro-obama for ratings. They’re projecting
I strongly suspect that the rare negative story regarding Obama from the MSNBC “hosts” is a lame attempt at saving their jobs when Comcast takes full control. It wasn’t until the takeover was a done deal that these occasionally negative stories started to appear. Hopefully, though, they’re a day late and a dollar short, and will be booted when Comcast takes full control and decides that it would rather make money than support an all-Obama-propaganda channel.
