[ NNSquad ] Re: Three days after Comcast takeover of NBC Universal, Keith Olbermann "ousted" from MSNBC
[ I won't prolong the readership's agony by extending this discussion here any longer now, except to note that Olbermann's supposed "ethics violations" (campaign contributions) were viewed by many observers as trumped-up charges that paled utterly in comparisons to the standard operating procedure of the GOP lackeys over at FOX. After Jeff Zucker left NBCUni in the wake of the Comcast takeover bid, NBC's already decimated willingness to take any kind of progressive stands was utterly obliterated. That's media consolidation for ya'!

Perhaps Comcast hopes to merge NBC News with FOX "News" next. Just an idle thought.
