The Most Honest Man in News

Not sure he's the most honest man in news? Take a look for yourself: We've collected the top five rants of Keith Olbermann.

An unfamiliar viewer tuning in to Keith Olbermann's prime-time news program on MSNBC, Countdown, might, at first glance, assume he was watching a highly traditional broadcaster. Olbermann has a long, sober face and trim hair that's going gray. With his glasses, he looks like a Fifties newsman -- Clark Kent behind an anchor's desk -- while his stentorian delivery can sound almost self-consciously retro, the sort of voice (of God or your high school principal) mocked nightly by Stephen Colbert.

  1. Wow! Great find, G!!! :-D

    I still remember that famous Habeas Corpus comment of Olbermann's.

    I kept thinking: "*Finally*, someone from the MSM who is actually speaking truth to power! About bloody time!"

    Now, if only there were more and more like him coming out of the woodworks ... but in the meantime, we'll always have the progressive blogosphere to do the job! ;-)
