Fun Fact: If "Nobody" Watched Olbermann, "Nobody" Watches Beck Either

In the last day that such things can be measured, the difference in the ratings between Glenn Beck on FOX "News" and Countdown with Keith Olbermann on MSNBC was scanty indeed. Beck bested Olbermann, I'm not gonna lie. But the margins are thin, and do not merit all of this ridiculous "nobody watched" Olbermann. I'd also like to point out that in the key demographic (25-54), Olbermann did beat Beck, 388K to 270K. I'll concede that when you're counting your viewers in hundreds of thousands, calling that audience "nobody" might have a little validity. But if you're going to apply that to Olbermann, Rachel Maddow, or MSNBC in general, if you have any honesty, you must apply it to Glenn Beck as well.
