Keith Olbermann is one of the only journalists out there in the mainstream media who has the Bush Adminsitration's number and isn't afraid to mince words about it. He is a true American Patriot--he tells us the truth about the lies and fearmongering the Bush Administration has fed us for the past 6 years or so.
This book contains Olbermann's "Special Comments" and they are a good read if you are interested in what Bush has really done to this country.
He also adds in a few other tid-bits of information you may not know about. One thing in particular that happened to Olbermann tells me that he is a courageous journalist in an atmosphere filled with yellow journalism and pack journalism at its most dangerous.
Olbermann cuts through all that and he has so much fun proving how much of a moron Bush is and his arch enemy Bill O'Reilly of Fox News.
It's a good read. I read it all in one day. I couldn't put it down. Olbermann is a great writer, too. You won't regret buying this wonderful book that exposes Bush and his criminal cohorts more than any other journalist has since Bush took office.

This is a collection of the excellent essays that were broadcast by Olbermann on his Countdown program on MSNBC. In every essay, Olbermann combines superior rhetorical skills with an uncanny command of facts that in combination drive the Far Right into fits. Bill O'Reilly is a frequent target of Olbermann, and for good reason. O'Reilly is shown to have a weak grasp of facts and a far right orientation that compromises his journalistic integrity.

Simply put, Keith Olbermann's new book "Truth and Consequences" is terrific. Olbermann may have arrived a little late into the Bush presidency to comment upon, but he's more than caught up with his ringing portrayal of the audacities of the Bush administration. Call him what you will but I think Keith Olbermann took the lead from the namby-pamby media and delivered a blow to "W" right between the eyes.
Eloquent, stirring, historically accurate and with a superb knack for redefining patriotism, the author takes Bush apart with aplomb. Whether it be the war in Iraq, Hurricane Katrina or Bush's fellow Republicans, Olbermann first loads them up like shish kabob and then puts them on the grill. Jon Stewart is funny, but Keith Olbermann takes things to a new level. His comments alone on Tom DeLay and Newt Gingrich are worth the price of the book.
Reading "Truth and Consequences" can be best enjoyed in one of two ways. Like a wine-tasting, it's nice to clear the palette before reading the next chapter. However, if you want to go the "red meat" approach, be my guest. It's equally effective and proves that Keith Olbermann stands out for his depth and insight. I highly recommend this book. Go Keith!

I really enjoyed the book, and I watch his show on MSNBC as often as possible. At times, Mr. Olbermann is a bit grandios, and theatrical in his on air delivery of his special comments, but his words ring true from the printed page, just as much as from the television. I started getting concerned about our economy in 2004 and I watched the various news outlets to get a complete picture. I take NO ONE at face value, and I research facts to make informed decisions. I have found Mr. Olbermann to be right more times than not. If you like Fox News, you will not like this book, but if you are an educated individual that is capable of reaching your own conclusions after getting all the facts, then this book is a good read for you. While this review is late in being given, it is none the less just as accurate now as when I first got and read the book. They were great Christmas presents for my family.
