Reactionary Broadcaster Broadsides Former President Clinton

Demonstrating the conservative slant that NBC and its spin-off networks have become increasingly known for, reactionary ex-sportscaster Keith Olbermann used President Bush’s commutation of Scooter Libby’s sentence as a launching point for a spittle-flecked rant in which he bizarrely attacked a key American policy first enunciated in the mid-1990s by President Bill Clinton and Al Gore, his veep.

Calling Clinton’s regime change policy maybe “the greatest crime of this young century“, Olbermann’s continued attacks against President Clinton’s policies as carried out by its successor administration are further proof that the nation could benefit from a return to the Fairness Doctrine, especially when a broadcaster like Olbermann is sandwiched into a primetime line-up that consists largely of colleagues representing the same ideology as his own.
