Olberman's Ratings Dropped 44% In One Year

This past year, not to put too fine a point on it.

Some of it was ground gained by Headline News and CNN, and they all still suck wind behind O'Reilly (not a fan but whatever), whose show was the only cable news program to grow it's audience in the same time period (55%, even with boycott threats and all).

After a while shrill gets pretty tiresome (not to me, I actually find him entertaining again). I mean, how do you top shrieky hysteria and all those stern angry lectures night after night? By playing hard left the only game he has is to hold on to what he's got, and he's doing a piss-poor job of it if he loses almost half of em in the first year of Obama's administration.

With these shifting political fortunes, you run the risk of becoming the fan-boy of failure.

Which I'm guessing leads to more bitterness and contempt, not less but what the hell do I know?
