    Default Tom Brokaw: Chris Matthews & Keith Olbermann have gone too far

    Tom Brokaw said Sunday at a panel in Denver that MSNBC hosts Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann have "gone too far" in their campaign reporting.


    At the discussion, sponsored by the Joan Shorenstein Center on Press, Politics, and Public Policy, Brokaw chided his colleagues:
    "I think Keith has gone too far. I think Chris has gone too far," the veteran NBC newsman said at a forum sponsored by Harvard's Shorenstein press center. But Brokaw said that they are "commentators" and "not the only voices" on MSNBC and that viewers could sort it out.


    He was responding to criticism from Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a Hillary Clinton supporter, who declared at the forum that "MSNBC was the official network of the Obama campaign."


    CBS's Bob Schieffer defended the media's reluctance to cover John Edwards's extramarital affair, saying Edwards's candidacy was over and "I don't see that we have time to be fooling with this."


    But ABC's George Stephanopoulos noted that "the level of the coverup here was kind of astonishing," and Brokaw expressed concern about this question: "What if it had been Mitt Romney? Would the press have gone after that story more aggressively
    In June, Brokaw slammed the press drumbeat for Hillary Clinton's exit from the Democratic primary, calling it "inappropriate" and "commentary disguised as reporting." Also in June, Brokaw scolded Olbermann on air for suggesting that Clinton was attempting to "shoehorn" her way into the press coverage, saying, "I think that's unfair, Keith."

    Stephanopolous talking about media bias is a laugh riot, given his cozy softball session with his ex boss, hillary.

    Matthews and Olberman get hard-ons every time Obama speaks.

    Matthews has admitted on air that he "gets a tingling up his leg"

    Olbermann that he's 'beginning to sound borderline sycophantic'...

    But they're totally impartial and fair

    There's more....

    BRAWLING ANCHORS ON MSNBC




    August 27, 2008 -- ANIMOSITY among MSNBC anchors has reached a mile-high peak at the Democratic National Convention in Denver, with on-air squabbling between such big egos as Joe Scarborough, Keith Olbermann, Chris Matthews and David Shuster.

    Scarborough, who served in Congress as a Republican representative from Florida, seems to be particularly touchy being the only host who isn't openly pro-Democratic.

    Yesterday, after Shuster referred to "your party, the Republican Party," Scarborough went off, sparking a seven-minute exchange.

    "I will let you know that 'my party,' my party loathes me much more than your party, the Democratic Party, loathes me," Scarborough seethed. "What about your party? What's your party, David Shuster? David, what's your party?"

    "I have no party. I'm a complete independent," Shuster replied.

    "Oh, I feel so comforted by the fact that you're independent. I bet everyone at MSNBC has 'independent' on their voting cards," said Scarborough.

    Scarborough declined to talk to Page Six, but sources say he and NBC anchor Tom Brokaw disagree with MSNBC's decision to position itself as the channel for George W. Bush-haters.

    At a forum on Sunday, when Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell called MSNBC "the official network of the Obama campaign," Brokaw said, "I think Keith has gone too far. I think Chris has gone too far."

    Insiders say Olbermann is pushing to have Brokaw banned from the network and is also refusing to have centrist Time magazine columnist Mike Murphy on his show.

    "The idea of anyone trying to ban Tom Brokaw is ludicrous," said one MSNBC-er. Brokaw was on MSNBC for an hour yesterday afternoon. Murphy, who was bumped from Olbermann's show on Monday night, told us, "They told me technical problems and I have no reason not to believe them."

    Considering that we've had to listen to Bush News...I mean Fox News for 8 years I say it's a trade-off.

    I get that they're passionate, but they sound really ridiculous. Nobody, especially someone who is supposed to maintain some kind of "journalistic integrity," should put a politician on a pedestal.

    and LOL at banning Tom Brokaw.... what the hell?

    Excuse me but you guys are missing an important point here. Neither Matthews or Olbermann have ever been anything more than the talking heads of a political opinion show. They have opinions, that's what they are paid to do. How is this any different than those brainless morons at Fox steadily beating the McCain drum all the time? It's not...

    Of course they aren't impartial. I went back and forth between MSNBC and FOX after the speech. It was quite obvious who was for who. Fox was just as bad. They could find nothing good to say about any of the speeches.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    Ah, Chrissy and Keith have been ardent slammers of Bush for years now. What FOX says is irrelevant to them since they're on a competing network. Well, unless you're the two whiny bitches names O'Reilly and Olberman who are caught in some dumb ass feud. They just need to screw each other and get it over with.
