MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann is now blogging from Daily Kos.
Yeah, it’s me.
Sure has taken me long enough. But, as you may know, I am the shy, retiring type: Hesitant to state an opinion in public and horrified to pass judgment or seem a scold.
Ok, before the Right and OlbermannWatch go ballistic…oh wait…let’s calmly examine what this really means.
I think it means nothing really. Nothing has changed.
Look, the facts are Countdown is now acknowledged externally by Olbermann himself and other MSNBC execs as having gone left. Whether you like that or not, and there are plenty of people on both sides of that battle, it’s now an established given. So what does blogging from Daily Kos do to change that? Nothing. It’s a smart move from a programming standpoint. That’s where Countdown’s audience spike over the past year and a half is coming from; from the left. So why not have Olbermann blog from one of the big hot spots of liberalism on the internet?
