Keith Olbermann vs Glenn Beck

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

We are living in strange days indeed. LAist remembers a time when CNN anchors were mellow and mild and just told you the news. But ever since they expanded and began hiring the likes of Tucker Carlson, Robert Novak, and later Anderson Cooper, Glenn Beck, and Nancy Grace, it gave us the feeling of a Fox News Jr.

Maybe we're crazy.

The last few days have been interesting on CNN's Glenn Beck's show, though. First he mocked MSNBC's Keith Olbermann for saying that Beck will soon say something that could get him booted off CNN, then Beck this week told a joke so poorly that depending on his relationship with his boss(es), could possibly get him kicked off CNN .

We hope he keeps his job. He makes us feel better about ourselves.
