Olbermann and O'Reilly Feud Defused

Keith Olbermann and Bill O’Reilly have agreed to take off the boxing gloves and play nicey-nice on air pursuant to a deal struck by their daddies, Jeffrey Immelt, head of General Electric and Rupert Murdock, who owns News Corporation. No longer will the feud be openly fought within the MSNBC/FOX arena.

“It’s hurting business and when business hurts, we all hurt,” said an unidentified spokesperson. However, according to the polls, every time Olbermann attacks O’Reilly on air, the ratings spike and one has to wonder how that can hurt business. Ad revenues are through the ceiling. Although ratings are barely affected one way or the other when O’Reilly attacks back. Still, people tune into the news to be entertained, not informed.

Some people are wondering if this latest in a string of “kiss and make up” stories is another Obama victory. Perhaps no one is letting on that he was secretly invited to the meeting between Immelt, Murdock, Olbermann and O’Reilly when moderator Charlie Rose just couldn’t get anyone to budge. A White House spokesperson did comment just moments after the meeting that “once you get everyone to play a few rounds of quarters, all the hate and tension tends to just melt away.”
