News Scrap (It's On!) The battle between O'Reilly and Olberman, the remix. From the always wonderful On the Media.

I heard this this weekend... lame.

On the Media should be doing much more work like the excellent:

Counterspin:

and comparing Olberman with O'lielly is kind of like comparing Clinton and Bush... hardly two sides of the same coin.

Gut instinct: Oh, thank god. More of O'Reilly and Olbermann. Can't we just salt both of them to watch them wither?
After listening to the piece: This was tremendously unfunny. Let's salt Brooke Gladstone too.

The prospect of listening to O'Reilly fight with Olbermann is like watching Britney Spears fight with Paris Hilton. Water seeks its own level.

And RealAudio sucks.

I just hate hate hate the On the Media theme song. It is so dissonant it makes me anxious.

Something funny possibly could be put together from the audio bits on this feud, but that wasn't it.

does anyone else see these two bickering like when Ice Cube and NWA used to?

MC O'rly should lay down some phat trax with the vomit he spews

O'Really is a limp falafel of a parody. Wonder how long it will take him to recover those millions he spent to shut up the sexual harassment lawsuit?

Olbermann is more of a news man than 99% of the other talking heads on the tube. That means you Katie!

That means you Katie!

I'll bet she reads MetaFilter.

I for one cannot wait until the O'Reilly/Colbert smackdown scheduled for thursday. I think they might actually trigger a fusion reaction when they meet. I am prepared to see O'Reilly divide into 6 parts and disappear.

What's next, Olbermann taking on Geraldo and O'Reilly?

I don't get the Olbermann *H8!*. I think Countdown is a well-executed news-hour, and he certainly doesn't attain the levels of hysterical shout-hype like the rest of the cable mannequins.

Terrible. That was so white I feel black.

I'm putting 2 to 1 odds on Olbermann kicking O'Really's ass.
