Lawrence Thrives, Countdown's Demise

In June of last year, I wrote a post "Welcome Back Keith Olbermann And Goodbye Lawrence O'Donnell.
 Keith's show on Current didn't last a year, somewhere, Mr. Olbermann became confused as to the relative importance of the message and the messenger.  One of the most important elections in history and Keith's voice is silent.  Lawrence O'Donnell's show The Last Word occupied the same time slot as the Keith Olbermann show, my feeling at the time was Mr. O'Donnell couldn't compete.   I'd like to eat my crow in a pie please.

On the other hand, Lawrence O'Donnell's The Last Word, has blossomed into a warm, informative and enjoyable look into America's politics.  "The Last Word" is also tearing up the ratings, even beating Fox in the 25-54 demographic.  Kudo's to Mr. O'Donnell and his staff, for creating challenging and quality programing, that doesn't require fact checking.
