The Death Of Cable News

While President Obama has his on-again off-again war with Fox News for employing the likes of Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity, MSNBC continues to tow the party line for the Democrat Party led by the man that has done more to destroy cable news journalism than any other. After Tea Partiers held a rally with radio talk show host Mark Levin on the steps of the U.S. Capitol, Keith Olbermann had this to say:

“On an associated point with this, how do the organizers of this not realize, ‘You know what, we had better get somehow, even if we have to pay them to show up, some black faces, some brown faces, some Asian people or somebody in this crowd other than the crowd we were seeing?'” Olbermann said. “Every piece of videotape I looked at looks exactly the same. This is otherwise going to look like a pro-Apartheid rally in South Africa 35 or 40 years ago.”

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and I’m currently working on my Master’s degree in the same field…and day after day I wonder why. Perhaps I could also get a degree in sanskrit or perhaps I could devote my life to the study of mule tits…you know, something more useful than the long dead and buried profession of journalism.
