Countdown with Keith Olbermann has been the one cable news show that I've watched regularly. Witty and relentless reporting on the Bush mischief, scornfully entertaining takes of Tinseltown's tabloid fodder, hilarious gadfly to Bill O'Reilly of Fox news, master of the Michael Jackson Puppet Theatre, Olbermann has earned a steadily growing audience during his three-year stint on MSNBC. Last night, however, he crossed a line that must never be crossed. And now he's off my Moxi series list.
In his opening billboard last night, with no warning, he revealed the shocking ending of the Sopranos premiere episode. That's it, Keith. You are now officially the worst. person. in the world. Nothing so egregious has happened on TV since Gene Siskel blurted the secret shocker of The Crying Game.
