So MSNBC has demoted this pair of idiots from their spots as anchor as noted here. I first speculated that MSNBC was responding to their outrageous partisanship as illustrated here.
But Michael Graham has a theory that holds more water. He thinks that MSNBC isn't so much trying to regain their journalistic integrity as stop them from damaging Obama further. Graham stated that anyone who really wants to help Obama would lock Olbermann and Matthews in a closet until after the election.
After all, MSNBC replaced them with David Gregory......not exactly Edward R. Murrow.
