No doubt, your ilk would silence him and anyone else right of Chomsky if they could.

First off; it was a narrow margin on a Bill Oreilly vacation. Don't get too moist over it.
secondly; Bill is not passing himself off as a journalist; he hosts an OPINION show. He is an entertainer that makes political COMMENTARY. Contrary to current juvenile understanding; COMMENTARY is not journalism.:cool:

You're a pathetic excuse for a human being, yet here you are.

Why is this kind of comment tolerated from a Moderator? :confused:

I'm not a moderator so I'll say it. Eyelids is a compulsive liar and exaggerator. He has been caught repeatedly and yet is allowed to stay at CU. He's almost pitiful.

Yes agreed. But Please don't ban him. I really need the exercise.:D

He is a true featherweight but at least he reminds us that insane people are allowed to vote in this country.:cool:

Well, cause this isnt DU and we can speak freely is probably the main reason. Freedom of Speech is a powerful thing, isnt it?

And thatís fine - from your status, but a Moderator should just stick to the rules of conduct (as in setting an example?) and the issues being debated.

Agreed, please don't ban him. I tried to get Kekkonnen banned and failed, then when he got himself banned, I missed the stupidity.

What about an admin? Do you admonish Gator when he calls people names? Cause from what I've seen, you have selective outrage... :rolleyes:

Olbermannís show averaged 477,000 viewers in the key 25-54 demo, beating the 472,000 for the Bill OíReilly show in the week ended Sunday


A 5000 viewership differential



"Factor" still had a significant edge over "Countdown" (http://javascript<b></b>:zodInfuser.FillDescriptions('&quot;Countdown&quot;');) in viewers last week, averaging 2.5 million over the four-day period to "Countdown's" 1.3 million.



A 1.2 million viewership differeintial

Olberman is an activist and anyone naÔve enough not to know that - deserves their ignorance.

The entire week his show was hosted by guests. Link or not common sense doesn't take a vacation, Bill was not on air is the point. Whether he was in the greenroom yards away or on vacation thousands of miles away is not the point.:cool:

Special Keith and his special comments. Give him a Scooby-Doo lunchbox with a matching thermos filled with chocolate milk and he's on cloud nine.

Olbermann had become what he rallied against years ago.
