As Olbermann’s #’s Rise, It’s Time To Ask: “Is It Worth Throwing Neutrality Overboard?”

As Keith Olbermann “continues to pick up steam,” Aaron Barnhart says “it’s worth asking if his brand of journalism will be, and should be, the future of TV journalism.”

Here’s how he frames the question: “With each special comment, each story that mocks the GOP, Olbermann edges ever closer to a form of journalism not seen since the early 20th century, when Democratic and Republican newspapers routinely sparred, their front pages filled with wildly differing accounts of a news event.

If Keith Olbermann’s brand of journalism is what it will take to keep viewers younger than 60 informed, is it worth throwing neutrality overboard?”
