10. A typical corporate media propaganda piece by Newsweak,

Gore was "desperate," "owned," "prostrate," "*trying to deny his fate," and of course the critics even anonymous ones; are given the last word.

*Whatever that means?

"With the situation at least momentarily under control—Olbermann was calm, thoughtful, and at times even lighthearted while covering the South Carolina primary—Gore and Hyatt just might tiptoe their way to a viable television network without disturbing their only star.

Gore, ever politic, presses on. “Keith is fulfilling exactly the role that I had hoped for,” he told Newsweek in an email interview.

Others are less hopeful.

“They’re relying on a time bomb to define themselves,” says one insider. “No matter how carefully you work to defuse it, it will go off.”
