Olbermann As The “Opposition Press”

Keith Olbermann tried to avoid commentary. But “there’s a point at which you can’t sit inside a burning building without shouting ‘fire,’” he tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

More: “Jay Rosen, a media critic and journalism professor at New York University, believes that Olbermann’s show is a fulfillment of his 2004 prediction of the rise of an ‘opposition press’ in response to a deepening cultural divide and what he called bland media coverage of the Bush administration during its first term…

‘In the last year, Keith Olbermann has basically put the idea of ‘opposition press’ into practice,’ said Rosen. ‘Did journalism collapse? No. But his ratings went up, and a lot of things got said that needed to be said.’”
