LA Times blogger Andrew Malcolm comments:

It’s not the Worst Mistake in the World.

But without this kind of correction, online too, a few thousand people might have tuned into MSNBC, the Obama administration’s favorite cable channel, expecting to see a “Jackass” show, and instead they’d have found Olbermann.

Worse, what if nobody noticed the difference?

No need to be insulting. Jackass viewers are far too sophisticated for the juvenile propaganda passed off as news by MSNBC.
