O'Reilly is really-really worried about MSNBC's ratings.
The letter to NBC chairman Bob Wright says: "We, the undersigned, are becoming increasingly concerned about the well-being of MSNBC and, in particular, note the continuing ratings failure of the program currently airing weeknights on that network at 8:00 PM EST.
Daily Kos has the full letter up: "Seriously. Bill O'Reilly wants NBC-Universal to fire Keith Olbermann and replace him with Phil Donahue who hosted the 8pm show prior to Olbermann's hiring..."
Bill is really fired up. We are already on "Day 5" of the Neal Gabler watch. O'Reilly is trying to get him fired from FOX so he might as well give a little advice to Bob Wright. I'm sure Keith already has a segment done for tonight on this one.
"When you think of the towering achievements in the Falafosphere already chalked up by Al Franken, David Letterman and now Keith Olbermann, our "organized smear website funded by radical left-wing billionaires" seems quite insignificant."
