No One Tells Keith Olbermann what to Report

No one. Got it? Not NBC, not GE, not anyone. Keith Olbermann's Ego simply did not feel that the face-off between CNBC's Jim Cramer and Comedy Central's Jon Stewart was worthy of The Ego's time. The Ego had more important things to talk about. And Keith Olbermann's Ego is immensely hurt that people are daring to criticize him for failing to utter Stewart or Cramer's name on Friday's night show. STFU. What do you expect from The Ego? Look I'm here to go after Rush and Bill-O and all things GOP, not bite the hand that feeds The Ego. What do you think I am? Stupid? Everyone knows I have an Ivy League degree and couldn't possibly be stupid. At least not stupid enough to add insult to injury to my GE bosses when it comes to calling out a corporate cousin. But remember, if I wanted to talk about I could. I just don't want to. And if none of those excuses explanations work for you, try the several that are offered here instead. See, The Ego does not care what others think about him and what he does or does not talk about on the air.

What a crock of shit. Rachel had the balls to cover this. Keith didn't. Guess we know now who has the biggest one at MSNBC and it ain't Keith.

Keith "no one tells me what to do" Olbermann was told by his bosses not to bring up Cramer's humiliation by Stewart. Can't bite the hand that feeds you, ya know.

Except Rachel did. Next time Keith feels the need to lie to his audience about why he did or didn't do something he should at least make sure that there is a consistent story being told by everyone at MSNBC. Schuster said he couldn't cover it and didn't; Maddow just went ahead and covered it cautiously. Olbermann claimed there was no such ban and didn't cover it and then went fleeing to Kos to post 999 reasons why he didn't but then TV Newser reported that they had independent confirmation by 2 inside sources at MSNBC that they were all told not to cover it plus the lack of coverage all day long on this which proved that their sources were right and Keith was lying.
