When Keith Olbermann announced that he planned for even less people to see him on TV on a nightly basis by leaving his MSNBC show, many thought that it couldn’t be done. If Keith Olbermann left MSNBC, he might end up being accidentally seen on Fox News and seen by millions of people, killing his mission to be seen on TV by as few people as possible. Well, Mr. Olbermann has heroically proven his naysayers wrong once again with his latest announcement: He will host and produce a nightly prime-time news program on Current TV. Olbermann:

“Nothing is more vital to a free America than a free media, and nothing is more vital to my concept of a free media than news produced independently of corporate interference. In Current Media, Al Gore and Joel Hyatt have created the model truth-seeking entity.  The opportunity to partner with Al, Joel and Mark Rosenthal makes this the most exciting venture in my career.”

Glenn Beck is probably wondering to himself “no corporate interference? How would I pay for all the awful shit I doubtlessly own?” Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin continues to consider following in Olbermann’s footsteps and being seen by even less people than his brother Stephen.(via The Hollywood Reporter)

9 Other Journalists Who Need To Get Punched http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-other-journalists-who-need-to-get-punched/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-other-journalists-who-need-to-get-punched/#comments Thu, 03 Feb 2011 00:24:36 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=24258 What right did those Egyptians have to attack him, especially when there are so many other journalists worthy of a beating. Here are 9 examples.

Earlier today, it was reported that journalist Anderson Cooper was attacked by an angry Egyptian mob, and repeatedly punched in his head. Like millions of others, I was outraged by the entire event. What right did those Egyptians have to attack him, especially when there are so many other journalists worthy of a good punch to the head. Here are 9 examples.

9. Nancy Grace

Just look at this picture. Do you really need me to elaborate on why she needs a punch?

8. Glenn Beck

You can sit all day and argue about his political beliefs, but any grown man who makes it a habit to go on on national television and cry like a bitch deserves a punch. I’m a pussy, but at least I cry in private.

7. Keith Olbermann

Olbermann likes to blame the right wing for fostering a climate of political intolerance. His allegations might hold a little more weight if they weren’t coming from a man famous for his “Worst Person in the World” segments. Plus, I just read this attack article describing him as an asshole. It’s from the NY Post, so it’s probably garbage. But even so, I want to believe.

6. Natasha Curry

I’m not sure if it’s the phony tone in her voice, or the garbage she’s made to read, but Natasha Curry sounds like bad teacher talking down to a group of special-ed students.

5. Terry Moran

Back in 2007, when three Duke Lacrosse players were falsely accused of raping a stripper, Terry Moran said that people shouldn’t feel too sorry for them because they were white rich kids. I’m a white rich kid! I like strippers! That could have been me! F*ck you, Terry! It’s punchy time!

4. Bill O’Reilly

I don’t begrudge anyone for believing in god, so long as they aren’t using it as an excuse to blow up a crowded bus or take away my sweet, sweet pornography. But listening to this moron ramble on will make an atheist out of anyone. It’s one step up from Insane Clown Posse. Magnets, how do they work?

3. Matt Drudge

I give Drudge credit. Sometimes he goes after stories that the mainstream media is too afraid to cover. But the rest of the time, he’s going after stories that the mainstream media is too smart to cover. Tell us more about pet hoarding, Matt!

2. Billy Bush, Mario Lopez, Mary Hart, etc.

Although I certainly hesitate to call any of these assholes journalists, I would sure as hell love to see them all get beaten by an angry mob, so I’ve included them on the list.

1. Barbara Walters

I don’t want someone to be attacked just because they have a shrill, annoying voice and a speech impediment. But if that same someone was responsible for creating “The View,” then it’s punching time. Although they aren’t technically journalists, getting a few swings in at the rest of the cast is also encouraged.

Alec Baldwin May Live Liberal Wet Dream As MSNBC Host http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/alec-baldwin-may-live-liberal-wet-dream-as-msnbc-host/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/alec-baldwin-may-live-liberal-wet-dream-as-msnbc-host/#comments Wed, 26 Jan 2011 02:59:07 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=22366 He might be #1 on the list to replace Keith Olbermann. I still think he should stick to selling microwaves.

As a comic actor, I love watching Alec Baldwin on “SNL” and”30 Rock.” As a liberal political spokesman, I think Team America summed up my opinion nicely. Still, there are those who will pay top dollar for smug liberal talking hotheads, which is why it makes sense that Baldwin is likely MSNBC‘s #1 choice to fill in for recently departed anchor Keith Olbermann.

An unnamed network insider has been quoted as saying, “[Baldwin is] already part of the NBC family, has a huge fan base and is very respected for his long term passions for politics.” I’ve heard time and again that Alec Baldwin is ready to retire from acting, and his outspoken passion for touchy-feely liberalism makes this job as good as his. Battling idiots like Glenn Beck on TV would be a good stepping stone to battling idiots like Sarah Palin in actual politics.

That said, I still think he should stick to selling microwaves. (PopEater)

MSNBC Pulls The Smug Plug On Keith Olbermann’s ‘Countdown’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/msnbc-pulls-the-smug-plug-on-keith-olbermanns-countdown/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/msnbc-pulls-the-smug-plug-on-keith-olbermanns-countdown/#comments Sat, 22 Jan 2011 03:24:51 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=Video&p=21559 Now it'll be easier than ever to ignore the pompous commentator's rant videos, because his show has been officially cancelled.

When your ultra-liberal friends sent you clips of Keith Olbermann‘s latest 42 minute rant on YouTube, you maybe watched for 30 seconds and quickly clicked on a video of two dogs who fight each other when Fight Club is on. Well, now it’ll be easier than ever to ignore the pompous commentator, because his show has been officially cancelled.

Tonight marked the abrupt end of Keith Olbermann’s show Countdown, which put the network on the map for cable news channels — a map which currently is dominated by the Fox News country Horriblerica. We don’t have an official reason for Olbermann’s sudden departure. Some have speculated it has to do with the campaign donations scandal from 2 months ago, which got him suspended for two shows. I think I’ll go along and speculate with them. All Olbermann had to say about the matter in the above goodbye was that “this was going to be the last edition” of his show.

So, given their track record for picking up embattled political show hosts, who wants to bet that Fox News at least makes him an offer? (CNN)
