Atrios has a pair of brilliant links and quotations concerning Keith Olbermann, who left his MSNBC talk show in 1998 because he couldn't stand the idiocy of the anti-Clinton cavalcade that consumed the news that year. What really disturbed me (and Olbermann) was the revelation that people were actually talking about the possibility of a terrorist strike before the Clinton scandal really hit. I'm not saying that it would have led to real action (if I recall the era right, people were talking more about asteroid strikes than terrorist strikes), but it's rather chilling nonetheless.

(Besides, if nothing else, you have to read the comments section for some inspired trolling.)
