After reading Roland's response, I don't know what to think, other than if Johnny's theory is correct, BOR picked a bad time to take the rest of the week off.
I remember Daryn Kagan. I was wondering what had happened to her. I just made her website one of my Internet Explorer "Favorites" links.
Re: Neal Gabler: He's at home with his kind now at the NYT.
Re: Alexis Glick: I didn't know she was married and had kids. Cool. I hope she's having fun in the Caymans.
Re: Jim Cramer: Why did I ever like this guy?
Okay, off to bed.

Gabler's favorite word on Fox News Watch "narative" is still the his favorite. He was a blowhard then and is a blowhard now.

Jonathan Storm looks like another FNC/BOR hater to me.
The Observer link didn't work.
Re: "Olbermann needled": I'm glad I could pass that along.

Just checked the observer link. It's working but it's loading very slowly. It's gotten a lot of links since ours went up.

Does anyone know why Geta no longer does her regular program, but has become a political reporter?

Well her program was usually about legal cases but she did delve into politics from time to time. I think the change in emphasis currently is simply a reflection of viewer interest and a rush of big political news.

Do you think she will go back to her other reporting i miss it in some ways there is so much to catch up.

I'm sure she will. Gradually the political emphasis will be dialed back and you'll get more legal stuff. I think she still does legal cases every night, it's just not the whole show while the political news is so hot right now.

This is how far the left has gone, CNN was in a commercial and Olbermann was slamming McCain while a picture of the shuttle landing is in a box to his left, Fox on the other hand went live with commentary for a pass schuttle mission as a full screen picture showed the landing. Way to go FOX

You mean Neil Cavuto calling out Stephanie Miller on Monday's "Your World"? Personally, I'm sick of these "you guys at Fox" jabs that far-left guests that rarely show up at FNC use when they do show up.
"Calling out" may not be the right term, but you know what I mean.

I was responding to the 8:40 comment, not the 8:51 one.

Roland's response was Olby's blue blog source and BOR made WPITW as Worse. Plus, some awful things to say about James Dobson and Walmart. Oy.
I couldn't wait for Johnny's summary to show up on OlbyWatch. So, I went to the "Countdown" website and listened to the audio of the WPITW segment from the video player.

I should have read that posting at OlbyWatch closer. It says: "While this change is underway we do not want to add any new posts to the site so, except for test posts, we will not be actively posting to the site until tomorrow." In other words, no summary tonight.

Johnny must be heartbroken if he didn't have to watch Olby tonight!

The Olbermann/Maddow Oscar Wilde Farce on MSNBC is becoming the most fatuous gender neutral opera buffa on Cable!
Two Opposable thumbs down!

Johnny, any word on how the transition is going?
I see Sharon got in her famous "twsting" and I tried a "testing" . which sent me to a message informing me that it would not be posted till the moderator cleared it.
This reminds me of going thru a long long labor just waiting for that baby to appear.  
I am starting to get worried that If Johnny gets too long a break from KO he might refuse to go back to the torture.

There've been a few bumps; your comment authorization issue will go away when Mr Cox sets you up as an approved commenter. I can't comment either, and right now until the kinks get ironed out I can't even post! But Mr Cox will be hard at work on it this weekend. No great loss, since Edward R Olbermann is taking the night off and Amy Robach will be filling in.
