CNN: Drop Parker/Spitzer and Hire Keith Olbermann
On Friday, January 21, 2011, Keith Olbermann announced his sudden and immediate departure from MSNBC.
Regardless of what prompted this turn of events, Keith Olbermann is a champion of truth and integrity from a progressive point of view and the country is much better off with him on the air, acting as a countervailing weight against the lies, spin, hate and vitriol on Fox "News."
As such, the members of this group respectfully request that the powers-that-be at CNN consider dropping Parker/Spitzer from its evening lineup and bringing Keith Olbermann into the CNN family. The ratings for Parker/Spitzer are abysmal and, frankly, the chemistry between the hosts is awkward at best. It will never be the kind of "must see" political news/opinion program that Keith Olbermann has perfected over the years.
Keith has a loyal following and is a highly respected progressive voice in an age of a bottomless pit of conservative talking heads spreading lies, spin and propaganda.
In light of the above, we respectfully request that CNN give strong consideration to dropping Parker/Spitzer in favor of a revamped, CNN version of Countdown With Keith Olbermann.
