I don’t care what you think of Keith Olbermann. He’s right on the money about this.
Yesterday, I published a piece on Huffington using ESPN and sports coverage as a frame for the problem of churn in modern media. It does seem to me that Olbermann journalistically being Olbermann is something of an antidote as far as sports reporting goes. It’s also worth noting that he freely takes down MLB, even though MLB is a major ESPN partner (not as major as the NFL or College Football). Is ESPN hoping that Keith being Keith will restore some of the waning credibility on the editorial side of the house?
