New York Magazine: Screw 'em Too

Long-time haters. And really, who honestly reads magazines anymore anyway? No wonder they have to resort to posting this crap about me on the internets.
They gave them a chance. But they could not get along. After weeks of on-air squabbles, and amid accusations of political bias (such as the chants of "NBC! NBC!" that erupted during Sarah Palin's speech the other night), MSNBC has taken lightning rods Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann away from prime-time coverage of the presidential election, remanded them back to their own shows, and replaced them with a more sanguine host, reporter David Gregory — much to the relief of those at NBC who felt the duo's antics were compromising the news organization as a whole. If this were a buddy movie, longtime rivals Matthews and Olbermann would, in exile, find a bond in being punished together. With no one else around to understand the specific pain of being demoted from the most exciting election like, ever, they would form a friendship, overcome their flaws as human beings, and eventually return stronger than ever.But in reality these guys are just going to retire to their respective pastures and keep talking and gobbling up money until they disgrace themselves or die. Which wouldn't be a very good movie at all.
This ain't no movie pal. It's real life. And I'm not going anywhere. My Ego is too massive to be contained which is why I will now be allowed to freely roam and say whatever the hell I want to as I provide my analysis.
