You Stay Classy, NBC

The news division of NBC and its affiliates were once populated by stand-up men such as John Cameron Swayze, Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, and Tim Russert. What ever their biases, these were solid, professional broadcasters, a trend very much carried on to this day by NBC’s elder statesman, Tom Brokaw.

What would would they think of this recent comment from a man who fancies himself as their successor?

Update: Olbermann’s Palin Derangement Syndrome has–shocker!–spilled over to his Sunday Night Football gig–yet another example of NBC’s overt politicization of its flagship sports show.
