uberman olbermann

Keith Olbermann, host of MSNBC's Countdown, is all over the web today for lambasting the Bush Administration's new election-season angle of attack on media dissent (the most effective way to limit any dissent). In a series of speeches this week, first Rumsfeld and then Bush linked American journalists with the Nazis and al Qaeda, implying that members of the media who questioned Administration policymaking were tools of a nefarious plot launched by al Qaeda to use the media "divide the American nation." Last night's sharp-eyed analysis is, as usual, delivered in stirring fashion by old Olbermann, who seems to be feeding off the increasing callowness of the Bush spin machine to channel Edward R Murrow more powerfully each day. It's a hell of a contest we have unfolding before us. You can watch the video as well as read Olbermann's recent batch of righteous dispatches online here.
