My new favorite journalist

MSNBC's Keith Olbermann has consistently impressed me over the last several months with his series of in-your-face commentaries exposing the sanctimonious duplicity of "Dubya" and his cronies. No journalist in the mainstream media has had the balls to take on an administration this forcefully since Edward R. Murrow, and it's a refreshing change from the right-wing gas-bags who have previously dominated the airwaves, such as Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilley. Check out Olbermann's latest report last week on Bush's signing into law The Military Commissions Act -- a piece of legislation that strips away the constitutional right of habeas corpus, and brings this nation one step closer to the end of democracy as we have known it for over two hundred years: "a government more dangerous to our liberty than the enemy it claims to protect us from."



The man tells it like it is. It's about time somebody did.
