So the New York Times reports that the higher-ups at G.E. (which owns MSNBC, NBC Connecticut, and, in essence, me) and The News Corp. (which owns Fox News Channel) have put an end to the Olbermann-O’Reilly feud.
To which Keith Olbermann responds, “Nah.” (Though I can only imagine he used several thousand more words.)
People watch these bloviators (not restricted to O’Reilly and Olbermann) to reinforce beliefs and opinions they already hold. So why watch? Be your own Talking Head! Force your opinions on your friends, neighbors and colleagues, and when you’re done say, “Thanks for watching The (your name here) Show!”
If that leaves no one watching the bloviators, we could round ’em up, put them all in one big sandbox, and let them beat the bloody pulp out of each other. Last bloviator standing gets to host a game show.
Last Bloviator Standing. Hmmm. Now that would be reality television worth watching.
