Update: Bill George now apologizes and says he did not write the article excerpted below.
Olbermann perpetuates the single-mindedness and inflexible partisanship that now roil the country, both on and off Capitol Hill.
George, who voted for Barack Obama, says he never watches Fox News.
Granted, his rivals at FOX News drum up discord just as effectively and dangerously as Mr. Olberman. But the President has called time and time again for our country’s leaders to rise above pettiness and assume the mantle of dispassionate, consensus-centric leadership.
Olbermann cheapens discourse. He touts easy solutions. He speaks in truculent soundbites. His invective is hurting America!
