MSNBC's body count is still rising

Msnbc_2If you think all that on-air hair-pulling at MSNBC this week was just been a theatrical ratings gimmick, think again. Over at Politico.com, Michael Calderone reports that the place is on nuclear alert. “The situation at our channel is about to blow up,” Calderone quotes one high-ranking MSNBC journalist.

Perhaps to distract attention from their own troubles, MSNBC anchors spewed venom at other targets Wednesday, particularly Howard Wolfson, the former communications director of Hillary Clinton's campaign who now does some commentaries for Fox News. Keith Olbermann, who apparently has never met anybody he can't compare to a war criminal, referred to Wolfson as "Tokyo Rose" -- the nickname of Iva Toguri, a Japanese-American convicted of treason for her propaganda broadcasts on Radio Tokyo during World War II. For Olbermann, that was probably a remarkable act of self-restraint -- Toguri was only jailed for her treason. I'm sure Olbermann was really thinking of Lord Haw-Haw, Berlin's Brit propagandist, who was hanged for his.
