Well. It is more fun to watch. Reasons why? Gawker writer Pareene pens that Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann are smart, the change to David Gregory won’t shut up conservative critics and bitchery makes good TV.
Remember how conservatives have spent 100 years decrying the liberal bias of CNN? The CNN that is now represented by the apolitically moronic Wolf Blitzer and the inoffensive cuddly unicorn Anderson Cooper? Both of whom are useless and boring at covering politics? This won’t shut up any critics, at all. Show some fucking backbone.
… We already called Blitzer a moron, and we meant it. The man’s journalistic expertise is limited to an ability to stand up for a long time and babble at length without too much dead air. Matthews and Olbermann are blowhards and egomaniacs, yes, and they’re far too pleased with themselves when they do something like reference some 70-year-old Capra movie, but they actually know a lot about history and politics.
