Yea! Rah Rah! and Three Cheers!

I'm probably a little late with this but my comcast news page reports that MSNBC's Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews have been demoted from anchoring the debates to commentators. Couldn't happen to a more deserving pair! Evidently, their style was abrasive to the "..,impartial newsgatherers at NBC." Of course!

The move is appropriate. They will still be on the show giving their opinion, but they won't be the anchor. That sounds right to me. The anchor should focus on the facts and leave the opinions to others.

I agree that opinionated people like them shouldn't be anchors. But I think that the move says in effect they don't have what it takes to anchor important events.
