Last Friday, Keith Olbermann announced that he and MSNBC had decided to end Countdown. As a result, progressives have lost their strongest voice. Although MSNBC will continue to feature commentators such as Rachel Maddow, Ed Schultz, Lawrence O’Donnell and Chris Matthews, none of them, with the possible exception of Schultz, are fire-breathing liberals.
That means there is no longer anyone in the media to offset the hateful rantings of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, etc., etc., etc.
It’s a sad day for progressives and for fairness in media.
