Al Sharpton Is On Your TeeVee, Sayin' Stuff

Not too long after the NAACP ripped CNN and others for their lack of black prime time anchors, Rev. Al Sharpton, Civil Rights activist and sayer of uncomfortable things, has been made the new afternoon host of some random news program on MSNBC. He's replacing Cenk Uygur who was kind of terrible in the same slot. Sharpton, while not a polished broadcast journalist, brings a much more unpredictable sense to the program, as conservatives, barely able to contain their disgust, attempt to have a debate with him on air.

On Current TV, Keith Olbermann's Second Verse Is the Same As the First

Opening with "As I was saying ..." and ending with Markos Moulitsas gleefully tearing into the alleged tears of Keith Olbermann's former MSNBC cohort, Joe Scarborough, the "new" Countdown on Current TV was almost exactly like the old Countdown Olbermann originated on MSNBC. Only with a dash chintzier graphics and a pound more "cat fight."

Keithy Comes Back: Olbermann's "Countdown" Returns on Current TV

Controversial Liberal media demigod Keith Olbermann returns to television tonight! Olbermann was fired/forced-out/torepedoed-off-a-burning-bridge from MSNBC earlier this year after he went to war with management over many things, including a brief suspension due to some campaign donations he made to progressive candidates. His new show on "Internet-founder," former Vice President Al Gore's Current TV is part of a "re-launch" of sorts for the little-watched Current, which says it's ready to be a major player in the cable news market. It's repositioning itself to be a direct competitor for MSNBC. (Cue theme from Godzilla intro on Pharoahe Monch's "Simon Says.") Of course, I'm wondering if everyone even gets Current TV? I do, but I also get Putin's fav cable newser Russia Today, the actually-pretty-good-not-at-all-American-flag-burning Al Jazeera, BBC America and several other international news networks. Most folks just get FOX News with a light MSNBC/CNN chaser.

That all being said, will you be watching? Did you miss Keith? He's coming on at 8 p.m. EST tonight on Current. Check The Snob blog tomorrow for my thoughts on Keith's comeback.
