Keith Olbermann--The Last Good Writer On TV

Keith Olbermann was always my favorite ESPN anchor, and now he has become my favorite political journalist. Honest, angry, eloquent he is all the things I once believed journalism was meant to be. There are few writers today who are willing to be overtly eloquent, to write at a level above the 8th grade. It's seen as showboating and elitist, but as a person who adores this style, I am grateful for Keith Olbermann. He's what I wish I were.

Sadly he may be the last of this kind. A fierce and passionate writer and speaker, he often restores my faith in the power of words and speech. Would that these reassurances were less needed.

And part two
