Palin Scores Two Hits On Left-Wing Biased Media Targets

Heads are beginning to roll among the left-wing media after Palin's assault in her Convention speech last week. According to a Politico post from yesterday:

The NY Times reports tonight that Chris Matthews and Keith Olbermann will no longer anchor during upcoming political news events, as network insiders reveal more about what's been happening.

After months of accusations of political bias and simmering animosity between MSNBC and its parent network NBC, the channel decided over the weekend that the NBC News correspondent and MSNBC host David Gregory would anchor news coverage of the coming debates and election night. Mr. Olbermann and Mr. Matthews will remain as analysts during the coverage.

Apparently Matthews and Olbermann had many chances to rehabilitate themselves but couldn't kick their bias habits, so management decided tough love was in order:

In interviews, 10 current and former staff members said that long-simmering tensions between MSNBC and NBC reached a boiling point during the conventions. “MSNBC is behaving like a heroin addict,” one senior staff member observed. “They’re living from fix to fix and swearing they’ll go into rehab the next week.”
