Sarah's Shake-Up

Some pundits have claimed that Sarah Palin has already changed the face of American politics. New evidence of that has emerged in one of the most unlikely places—in the studios of NBC News.

When Palin lamented media bias during her acceptance speech, attendees of the Republican convention loudly chanted “NBC.” Yesterday, NBC responded by demoting MSNBC co-anchors, Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews. Instead, NBC News correspondent David Gregory will anchor news coverage of the coming debates and election night. The stridently left-leaning Olbermann and the combative liberal Matthews will remain, but only as analysts during the coverage.

Apparently, the move came after months of accusations of political bias and simmering animosity between MSNBC and its parent network. But, the open acrimony and last-place ratings during the Republican convention, ultimately did in the pro-abort, anti-war, red-diaper duo.
