Re: Olbermann Suspended

Here's how the New York Times begins its coverage of the suspension of the "Countdown" host:

Keith Olbermann, the leading liberal voice on American television in the age of Obama, was suspended Friday after his employer, MSNBC, discovered he made campaign contributions to three Democrats last month.

The leading liberal voice? Mr. No Ratings often gets fewer viewers than the MSNBC host that follows him, Rachel Maddow. But calling anybody on that network a "leading voice" on anything is a joke. Anybody ever heard of Oprah?
