Olbermann Slams Anderson: ‘He’s The Only Person Who Has Not Been Informed That He Is A Marketing Experiment’

Is that the new contract talking? Keith Olbermann sounds off on the cable competition in the latest issue Rolling Stone [via TVNewser]:

Anderson Cooper: “…He is the only person who has not been informed that he is a marketing experiment.”

Glenn Beck: “A wolf in sheep’s clothing. A very dangerously bigoted guy who’s selling himself as a pragmatic philosopher. I don’t think he sees his own bigotry. There’s something about him that suggests one night he will say something that costs him his career in television.”

Nancy Grace: “Anybody who would embellish the story of their own fiance’s murder should spend that hour a day not on television but in a psychiatrist’s chair. Really.”

Cooper, at the very least, should be able to sympathize with Olbermann’s post-contract cockiness: last month Anderson did the same thing to Fox News just hours after he signed a new pact with CNN.
