Ted Koppel: Olbermann, O’Reilly and the death of real news

Thoughts on profitable bias.

We live now in a cable news universe that celebrates the opinions of Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly – individuals who hold up the twin pillars of political partisanship and who are encouraged to do so by their parent organizations because their brand of analysis and commentary is highly profitable.

 

 

The commercial success of both Fox News and MSNBC is a source of nonpartisan sadness for me.
