ZURAWICK: “MSNBC is built on a lie, and it’s one that the cable channel is never going to be able escape as long as sticks to its leftist ideological guns.
That’s what I kept thinking as I watched Keith Olbermann’s strange, coded, wink-wink interview with Cenk Uygur last week on the new version of “Countdown.” (That’s the nightly show that is doing so well that Olbermann and Current TV have not released any ratings since the first week of July — and those showed a 30 percent drop for Olbermann from his premiere week.)
You can see a video of the interview here, but there is not enough time left in my life to try and explain all the innuendo and nutsiness going back and forth between these two former MSNBC employes. In the video, Uygur once again lays out his paranoid charges that the political powers that be in Washington (read: White House) essentially called in his boss at MSNBC and told him to tone Uygur down.”
