I write to MSNBC:
Hi, folks -

I just wanted to let you know that over the last year I've started watching more and more of MSNBC, almost entirely because of Keith Olbermann. I do wish he'd have people on his show that disagree with him sometimes, but generally I think he's fantastic and insightful and you're really lucky to have him.


Chris Matthews is insufferable! And he seems to be getting worse with every day. His behavior last night on air during the New Hampshire was atrocious - he was like "the 10-year-old child of the CEO" or something, running round saying dumb stuff, and all your folks, like Keith and Tom Brokaw and Tim Russert, were doing their best to maintain professionalism. Furthermore, his comments today that Hillary's only where she is because Bill "messed around" are truly beyond the pale.

I wanted to let you know that I love Keith, and he's the reason I look forward to your political coverage (like election night specials), but I don't think I can stand to take much more of Chris. If he's a co-anchor the next special, I plan to be watching CNN, with only occasional switches to check if someone other than Chris is speaking.

Of course I'll still be watching Countdown!
