Debate Debacle

So now it’s known that George Stephanopoulos quite literally took dictation from FOX News dirtbag Sean Hannity for one of the more ridiculous questions to Sen. Obama in the other night’s debate in Philadelphia. Amazing.

Olbermann discusses the debate overall with Greg Mitchell of Editor & Publisher and looks at how this case has become an embarrassment among journalists. Meanwhile, at TPM, a number of (mostly liberal) journalists have slammed ABC for their disgraceful performance. The fallout has been so bad that ABC felt compelled to run a segment about it on Friday’s World News broadcast.

Update: Heh.
