While reading more and more on Moyers, I scribbled a note on one of the articles I printed out calling that sanctimonious self-proclaimed journalist, “Keith Olbermann with a federal subsidy.”
A few seconds later, I chanced on the transcript of his December 14, 2007 program where that angry anchor was the Democrat’s guest.Â Then, Olbermann opined:
Dissent and disagreement with government is the life’s blood of human freedom and not merely because it the first roadblock against the kind of tyranny the men Mr. Rumsfeld likes to think of as his troops still fight this very evening in Iraq.
Shouldn’t that mean that Olbermann will now be praising men like Rick Santelli, congressional Republicans, conservative talk radio hosts, bloggers like us, editorial pages like those of the Wall Street Journal, all of whom, in dissenting from and disagreeing with government policy, now serve as “the life’s blood of human freedom” in the United States?
Last time I saw his show, however, Olbermann was criticizing such people as obstructionist.Â Well, offensive as Olbermann is, at least he doesn’t take a government subsidy to support his hypocrisy.
