13. Olbermann didn't miss, he just didn't ask the NPR guy the question
Later in the segment, Olbermann said of Gannon, "You are or were never a reporter."

Then he quoted the old Smothers Brothers "Cowboy Outfit Song:"

I can see by your outfit that you are a cowboy.
You can see by my outfit I'm a cowboy, too.
You can see by our outfits that we are both cowboys.
Get yourself an outfit and be a cowboy, too!


I think that gets to the meat of the matter: get yourself a propaganda machine, dress it up and "bingo" you're a reporter! But, are you really?
