The NBC television network, which is owned by General Electric, tacitly acknowledged how far away from journalism some of the news business has grown when it was shamed into removing Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann from anchor seats in news broadcasts. This ended the spectacle of highly partisan entertainers one moment playing the role of neutral reporters the next. The more blatant offender was Mr. Olbermann, who entered the business as a sports reporter, and who has become the...

"The film, justifiably or not - we'll be discussing this...

In the "How Are We Going to Be Able to Tell?" category, cable network MSNBC has announced that Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann will, henceforth, be "commentators" rather than news anchors at political events. Great! Now they can tell us what they really think! Apparently, the jaw-dropping bias of Matthews and Olbermann was even too much for MSNBC, which has found a niche at the bottom of the television ratings for leftist propagandizing. The only question is: Why'd it take so...

By Dusty Saunders You can't accuse 9News, CBS4 News and Denver's 7 of ignoring the drama surrounding Barack Obama's 42-minute acceptance speech. Once it ended, the three bumped network programming at 9 p.m. and went for the local angles with hourlong specials, centering on reactions to the speech and reviewing the day at Invesco Field. 9News' coverage was simulcast on KTVD-Channel 3, its sister station.
