Double Standard in Olbermann-Matthews Downgrading

NBC has every right to take Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews out of their anchor chairs for political events. But there’s a bizarre double standard at work in much of the traditional media commentary on this.

In the Washington Post, for example, Larry Grossman, former president of NBC News, is quoted as saying that MSNBC has “been doing very well as the liberal antithesis to Fox, everyone knows that. But at some point standards and journalistic integrity have to take over.”

The same standards that have taken over at Fox, which boasts one of the most obviously biases anchor people around, Brit Hume. The Post ignores this, to its discredit.
