Is Pastorgate really about media wars???
If it was Hillary's call, it potentially came too late to be effective.

If it was the RNC's call, it was way too early.

But, the very day after Keith Olbermann devoted most of his Clinton bashing, distortion filled hour and gave his rousing speech about how rejecting and denouncing words was not enough, he demands that Clinton will have to reject and denounce the person...

Then... then Fox News drops the Wright bomb. It was ignored on MSNBC for a day, although getting wide coverage on other networks. It was the exact same situation. Honorary committee members, Ferraro and Wright, each supporting different candidates, each making provocative statements, neither speaking for the campaign.

But Fox News knew that Obama could not reject the person in question, his spiritual adviser, long time friend... totally destroying Olbermann's credibility as the most prolific media spokesman for the Obama campaign.

Keith's measurement of the time difference between the provocative quotes to the time resigned would not be the 15 days he so scornfully promoted as Clinton's response to Ferraro... this time difference would reach 17 years.

So what promoted the timing of this release? Was it to help Clinton, or McCain... or was it to cut their arch-enemy Olbermann off at the knees the week before MSNBC started the expanded Countdown schedule.

1. Anybody who waches Countdown could give a rats ass
what fixed noise did or why or what their motivation was.

And those that watch faux hate Olbermann anyway.

So regardless of why who did what it had no impact on well, basically, anything.
