What’s wrong at MSNBC? Near as I can tell from this story in Politico, it’s Glenn Beck. Reporter Keach Hagey says Keith Olbemann’s departure was probably a banal “dissolution of an unhappy employee-employer relationship. So far, so good. But if that’s the case, how can Hagey possibly go on to argue that it “reveals the problematic structure of the current incarnation of cable news,” including “outsized personalities” like Glenn Beck.

Surely, a banal event reveals nothing other than its own banality. But, hey, “Glenn Beck” results almost certainly generate a lot more traffic than “Keith Olbermann is a self-involved jerk.”
