This discussion is from Seder’s new daily internet show, The Majority Report (v2.0). What’s interesting is that (a) it’s a sideways take from the politically obvious, and (b) it draws on Sam’s admitted experience as a sometimes-difficult media person frustrated with his management.
Offered without comment, but well worth your ear:
Sam returns to the subject near the end of the show. You can listen here.
The Olbermann analysis need not be either-or, by the way; the political and personal could both be true.
