10. BLOG IT: Can Only "Screechers" Compete In Today's Political Discourse?
Keith Olbermann
December 14, 2007 - http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/12142007/profile.html

"I don't care if you're a Democrat or a Republican," said Keith Olbermann in a recent interview with NPR.

"You're not doing what you said you were going to do. You have not restored habeas corpus fully. We're still in Gitmo. We're still in Iraq. We're not out fast enough. These are still going to be issues. They don't go away with George Bush."

.......

In his interview with Bill Moyers, Olbermann discusses the "organic" nature of these commentaries, which have helped to significantly boost the program's ratings:

When I get angry on the air, it's because I'm angry about that particular subject and because of the revision of this country that has been done under our noses for the last seven years against the will of the people. And when something happens that touches into that general anger, combined with the specific anger for the actual event that we're talking about, it swells up and I feel like, all right, here comes another one.


================
BLOG ++++ Can Only "Screechers" Compete In Today's Political Discourse?
http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/blog/2007/12/can_only...


In his conversation with Bill Moyers on this weeks JOURNAL, MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann addressed critics who liken his brand of editorializing to that of the conservative commentators he decries:

"It's the most vulnerable point because it bothers me, too. The one criticism that I think is absolutely fair we're doing the same thing. It becomes a nation of screechers. It's never a good thing. But emergency rules do apply... I think the stuff that I'm talking about is so obvious and will be viewed in such terms of certainty by history... I think only under these circumstances would I go this far out on a limb and be this vociferous about it."

What do you think?

# Do you agree with those who describe Olbermann as a "Limbaugh for Lefties?" Can "vociferous" remarks --- either from Olbermann or conservative commentators --- contribute constructively to the national discourse?

# Is it possible for reasoned, even-handed journalism to compete in today's marketplace of ideas?

# Does the political polarization of news outlets as seen in cable news, blogs, talk radio, etc. undermine the potential for Americans of differing views to find common ground?
