TV Guide has named MSNBC’s Countdown with Keith Olbermann one of their “Best Bets For Summer.” In the July 3 issue, they say: “The Best Way To Keep News From Getting You Down: Countdown with Keith Olbermann.

What other news show would dare mix hard-hitting investigative stories about presidential voting irregularities with features like a stick-puppet reenactment of the Michael Jackson trial?”
