Joe Klein: 'Olbermann is a Brilliant Writer...I Always Enjoy Watching Him Even When He's Occasionally Wrong'
Just how far to the left is Time's Joe Klein?
He actually thinks "Keith [Olbermann] is a brilliant writer, and presenter; I always enjoy watching him, even when he's occasionally wrong":
I'm not so sure what this dispute with MSNBC is all about, but I'm sad that Keith won't be around (at least, for a while). If there is a place for the nonsense-spew of Fox News, there has to be a place on my cable dial for Olbermann (who, while occasionally obnoxious, operates from a base of reality--unlike some people we know [see below]). Keith is a brilliant writer, and presenter; I always enjoy watching him, even when he's occasionally wrong. I hope I'll have the opportunity to do so again soon. In the meantime, I hope he'll heed the words of the master and "Go forth, and spread beauty and light."
Go forth and spread beauty and light?
Is that what Klein thinks this conveyor of half-truths and invective has been doing the past eight years?
Keep that in mind the next time you consider taking Klein seriously.
