"Straight news programming" 

MSNBC is kicking Keith Olbermann (and Tweety! Tweety!!) out of the election coverage anchor chairs for the rest of the campaign.

They are to be replaced with a mop-topped turd called "David Gregory," who was cultured from earlier coprolites ("journalists") Brian Williams and Tom Brokaw.

Olbermann has by far the most viewers of any show in the history of MSNBC.  So what's the problem?

As Brian Stelter writes for the NYT, "that success has a downside."

What's the downside?

When the vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin lamented media bias during her speech, attendees of the Republican convention loudly chanted “NBC.”

Republicans cry and stamp their feet; Olbermann's booted from covering the debates.  End of story.
