    Um, Olbermann does an opinion show too.

    Do yourself a favor and watch this.

    What does Olbermann have to do with Jeff saying that Fox News isn't objective? Olbermann apparently signed some form of a contract limiting his ability to donate as he wishes. His problem not mine....Do yourself a favor and read slowly so you don't get turned around. It's fast paced around here...

    I would agree that Fox is relatively "fair and balanced" ......in its football coverage. It will spread a rumor that supports its politics unquestioned for as long as it possibly can. It will either not report at all, or downplay any story that undermines the world view it is marketing.

The latter happened almost every election cycle.

    Imagine that! Sounds very "unionistic" eh?

    You have got to be kidding! With Michael Strahan and Jimmy Johnson as two of the host, they are so far up the butts of the NFC East teams it makes me want to puke!

    I'm just glad Oblaberman won't be doing Sunday night football pregame.
    It's time we abandon our party affiliations and rather than being good Dems or good Repubs we all become good Americans. MJH345

    Poor Ko. Can't seem to hold a job. I think(not sure) he has been fired from most of his jobs. For that matter, so has Limbaugh.

    So sad really. Such a quality guy being treated like that. He is always so kind in his treatment of others. I really like his "worst person in the world" segment. It is really a testament to his grace and class.

    He will be missed.

    I've never been in a union, so I wouldn't know. The only place I have even been pressured into making political contributions was in good old corporate America.

    Well over 90% of our PAC contributions went to Republicans. When there were contributions to Democrats, I was often designated to be the funnel since I was one of only two partners that openly admitted to being a Democrat in my politics (I always suspected there were a few others who were simply afraid). That meant I got to go to Ed Koch's birthday party every year, even though I opposed him and his birthday conflicted with my wife's, and I got to attend the Governor's Ball in New Jersey on a regular basis. These two events cost about $3000/year and I was allowed to count that cost toward my obligations to the PAC since neither event would accept PAC checks. It made me feel a little better since it reduced the amount of my money going directly to Republicans.
