Keith Olbermann to respond to Ted Koppel’s ‘Death of Real News’ op-ed

On Friday we shared Ted Koppel‘s WaPo op-ed with you, in which the former “Nightline” anchor wrote:

We live now in a cable news universe that celebrates the opinions of [Keith] Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly – individuals who hold up the twin pillars of political partisanship and who are encouraged to do so by their parent organizations because their brand of analysis and commentary is highly profitable.

Tonight, at least one of those hosts, Olbermann, will respond. He Tweeted yesterday:

FYI Special Comment tomorrow night: Koppel, False Equivalence, and his part in the real “death of news”
