Olbermann’s Edward R. Murrow Moment

On the basis of this savaging of SecDef Rumsfeld, Keith Olbermann would have a strong claim to be the Edward R. Murrow of our day — if only he weren’t so self-conscious about it.

Update: Robert Waldmann makes a convincing case that Olbermann slanders Neville Chamberlain in the clip I linked to above: “He was a truly aweful prime minister but comparing him to Donald Rumsfeld is going too far.”
