It’s an impressive list, and an impressive piece. Olberman, best known for anchoring ESPN’s SportsCenter, is ex-UPI, ex-ESPN, ex-NBC, and not-yet-ex ABC. Along the way, he gained the reputation of being the new Howard Cosell — a man whose intellect and talent encompasses far more than sports but who drives everyone who knows him more than a little nuts.
This is not an apologia; it’s a genuine and specific act of public repentance. Well worth reading.
