Thanks, YouTube, for freezing and perma-buffering right on the worst frame of the footage.

Stars for lecturing about human decency and social responsibility while gaudy "Coke" and "Hershey's" billboards flash in the background.
I avoid sports and news, so I don't know much about Olbermann aside from having heard his name, but he seems like an alright guy based on this.
Thanks OZ --- that fits his delivery. Also, comparison and weed have pretty much everything to do with my judgment in this case.
Comparing Olbermann to O'Reilly (or any other conservative talking head) is wildly inaccurate and lazy. Olbermann may have a penchant for the melodramatic, but he's nowhere near the kind of lying, professional shithead that people like O'Reilly are.
Inaccurate? Maybe but I don't think wildly so. Lazy? Always!
Not terribly inaccurate, no. Olbermann appeals to emotion first and rational discourse second. Much closer to O'Reilly than anybody you'd like to have an actual conversation with.

This is horrible, but when Olberman asks "does this look like a game" he kind of answers his own question. Let's say I go get myself a DUI and I work in an office environment at a cab company: probably nothing except I have to take the bus. Let's say I'm a taxi driver and get a DUI off the clock: some monitoring by the cab company and the possibility of termination if I tested positive for alcohol. Let's say I'm drunk behind the wheel while I'm driving my cab and get a DUI. Instant termination, suspended license and most likely jail time.
In all 3 cases the results could be fatal, but it just depends on how "on the field" I was. The NFL is right in punishing this asshole, but the real punishment should come from the people who handle domestic crimes.

Wait, we're moving backwards in terms of social gender equality? Compared to when? Some guy beats his wife and then is punished and there's widespread outrage is not a sign of gender equality retrograde.
Olbermann's hysterics are every bit as bad as O'Reilly's. The people that stand up for their leftist polemicists while decrying the right wing ones are awful.
