Glenn Beck "Shoot Them in the Head " inciting violence & Olbermann Ousted from MSNBC

Glenn Beck in June of 2010 was insisting that a cabal of Marxist, communists and National Socialist /Nazis are out to destroy America. It is a call to arms but it is accepted in America as Free Speech-in America there are no limits to free speech. So a media star like Beck can call for a violent push back as it were to the government of the day that is the Obama administration and even name names of those who should be harrassed and possibly killed in the name of Glenn Beck. But when violence occurs Beck et al claim its nothing to do with their incendiary , inflammatory over the top vile and vicious and down right ugly speech against those they disagree with.

Beck’s call to violence: “Shoot them in the head”

The Young Turks :Glenn Beck's violent rhetoric -shoot them in the head
Calls for pre-emptive action against the liberal/progressive Commie cabal which Beck claims has taken over Washington.

The Young Turks -Republicans want Gifford to step down -why because she got shot in the head-this should tell her something that Arizona no longer wants her???

Is Olbermann another victim of right wing fanaticism -should all progressives and liberals in the media be afraid of losing their positions???

Keith Olbermann parts ways with MSNBC
Was he fired , asked to resign, did he just quit
Was it money or integrity - was he too liberal for the network
Is anyone else's head on the chopping block ie maddow, Schultz

Keith Olbermann out at MSNBC by Nathan Diebenow, Raw Story Jan. 21, 2011

The liberal host of MSNBC's "Countdown" has completed his last broadcast for the cable news network he called home for the past eight years.

“Good night, and good luck,” Keith Olbermann said as he threw his script behind him for the last time at the end of his show.

The phrase is one he borrowed from the late veteran radio and television journalist Edward R. Murrow.

MSNBC released a short statement, saying that the two parties had not apparently reached agreement on Olbermann's contact.

"MSNBC and Keith Olbermann have ended their contract," the statement said.

...Olbermann thanked a number of people in his sign-off, but failed to mention any MSNBC executives.

An MSNBC spokesperson told The Washington Post Friday night that the NBC Universal-Comcast merger this week played no role in Olbermann's departure

...Sam Stein, Huffington Post's political reporter, said via Twitter that Comcast's merger had less to do with Olbermann's exit than with Jeff Zucker leaving his post as president and CEO of NBC Universal.

"Zucker was Olbermann's protector there," Stein said.

..."Countdown," the network's top-rated program, attracted 1.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen. However, Olbermann failed to match the ratings of FoxNews' most popular anchor Bill O'Reilly.

Media mogul Russell Simmons reacted on his blog to Olbermann's November suspension by stating that the network would end up suffering.

"Without Olbermann, MSNBC can’t survive – and the voice of progress will fall to the dark ages, when one unholy church dictated a fictional version of the truth," he said.

Simmons concluded, "Re-instate Keith Olbermann now. I will personally pay his campaign contributions."
