Olbermann Skips Time Off to Top O’Reilly

Jun 11, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Keith Olbermann’s “Countdown” on MSNBC beat Bill O’Reilly’s “O’Reilly Factor” on Fox News Channel last week in ratings among viewers 25 to 54 years old or the first time, causing Mr. Olbermann to delay a planned vacation, the New York Times reports. Overall, Mr. O’Reilly last week had more total viewers than Mr. Olbermann, who was likely helped by MSNBC’s Democratic primary coverage, the newspaper says.

  1. Gee, I wonder if you have a little bias against FOX News? Keith Olbermann is as bad as an egotistical blowhard as O’Reilly is.
    At least O’Reilly has people on that counter his opinions while Olbermann has nothing but nodding-headed butt-kissers across the desk.
    If Olbermann has good ratings on a given week, it’s news. If O’Reilly wins next week, you’ll report nothing….gee, I wonder why?

  2. Keith Olbermann tells it like it is in a nation that, considering the reality of this Administration, should be in the streets rioting demanding the ouster of the whole damn White House crew.
    There is a lot to be biased about for the last seven plus years of their rape of this nation.
    Cheney, Bush and many of their accomplises should be led in shakles to their next place of residence.
    Sorry Keith, but until the guilty verdicts are in you MUST stay at your post telling the truth in a media that has, for the most part, not been vigilent at all.
    Our nation needs Olbermann to stay the course. NBC should hire security for him, because these guys have shown time and time again that there is no limit to what they will do behind our backs.
    God Bless Mr. Olbermann and may his torch of truth light our way to better days.

  3. Keuth Overbite won on Tuesday (when Obama clinched) by a mere 100,000 viewers…that is actually a win for Fox because you would expect all the liberal democrats to tune into the liberal coverage. Like him or not O’Reilly has an excellent reaearch team; Overbite does not…his “facts” are garnered from marksist radio jock Rachel Maddow who knows NOTHING!!!!

  4. Does everyone forget where Keith Olbermann got his start on TV? It was as an ESPN SportsCenter anchor. He does not have the intellect to hang with a Bill O’Reilly and would lose dramatically in any debate over anything against Bill. Olbermann’s show is basically a glorified News SportsCenter with his “Ancient” delivery style getting older by the minute. If Keith spent half his time searching for worthwhile guests/news stories, as he does making fun of O’Reilly, he might develop into a top tier news anchor instead of a Oprah/Ellen wannabe!!!

  5. Keep focusing on your blog. I love how we can all express our feelings. This is an extremely nice blog here 🙂
