The Olby Strikes Back

Olbermann’s suspension is over, as of tomorrow.  So what do you think?  Honest attempt to stamp down potential bias at MSNBC?  Or publicity stunt to try distract from their obvious bias at MSNBC?

Here’s what I think: MSNBC got a tremendous amount of flak for their election night coverage, from liberals as well as conservatives.  I think this was just a way to try to make themselves seem less biased.  They suspend Olbermann, Maddow has a smug monologue and they come back, saying, “See, we’re not biased!  We suspended Olbermann for making campaign contributions!  It’s not like Fox News, where Hannity and Company outright campaign for Republicans!” It’s a pre-written narrative.

We ain’t fooled, guys.

Update: Oh, and Rachel Maddow is full of shit.  But you knew that too.
