American Journalism Review: Is Keith Olbermann the Future of Journalism?

From the American Journalism Review:

" trying to reckon whether Olbermann is, indeed, the future of television news, there is another question being asked about the basic tenets of news itself, what it is and what it isn't, that has some important stakeholders in the business worried. What if the reach extended beyond cable and beyond television? What if, as the subhead to a story in November by Kansas City Star TV critic Aaron Barnhart asked, Olbermann's 'Countdown' is journalism's saving grace?"

Comment: A very long but very interesting article on the news program I watch most often (as long as we're not counting The Daily Show or Colbert.)
