Gibson Credits NewsBusters For Matthews/Olbermann Demotions

On Monday, Fox News's John Gibson gave credit to NewsBusters for the demotions of Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann from their positions as co-anchors of MSNBC's election and debate coverage.

On Sunday, MSNBC announced that NBC's David Gregory would be replacing them in this role, and that they would continue as on-air analysts.

The following day, Gibson, who is a staunch detractor of Matthews and Olbermann, took what he referred to as a "Victory Lap," and gave credit to a number of websites for their hard work in continually exposing the over-the-top bias regularly exhibited by this pair (audio available here courtesy our good friend Johnny Dollar, relevant section at 7:00):

Let's give some credit to a lot of people who made this happen, because, you know, if it wasn't for Johnny Dollar, if it wasn't for NewsBusters, if it wasn't for Hot Air.com, Olbermann Watch.com, this stuff would have been swept under the rug. And thank God those people were there watching, because there is some relief in sight. MSNBC is still going to be left, but it's not going to be swimming around with snorkels and fins in the tank.

You're welcome, John.
