9/11/06: Olbermann’s “Special Comment”

By Brian 

Some reactions to Keith Olbermann‘s “special comment” from Ground Zero on Monday’s Countdown:

> “The man is Edward R. Murrow.”

> Keith spoke for many of us who find ourselves unable to be heard. It is so refreshing to hear the truth spoken with such courage and eloquence. Thank you MSNBC — you too need courage to allow Keith to speak and this is what America is/should be all about. Keep up the good work. We will be watching.”

> “Keith Olbermann’s partisan, despicable rant from the ruins of the World Trade Center was a lowpoint for him personally and professionally. That editorial comment should have been made on September 10 or 12, and from the comfort of his studio.”

> Vespa59: “It’s about time American media, other than a fake news show on a comedy channel, gave us a journalist who’s not afraid to sling the guns.”

> NewsBusters wants an apology.

> The Nation: “Keith Olbermann is without a doubt the best news anchor on television today.”
