Olbermann can't understand staying a winner.

Media: Via TVnewser is this goofy rant by Olbermann on Roger Ailes being unhappy as he sees ratings going down on Fox News and lack of drive by some people.

Olbermann Adds Ailes To His 'Worst' List FNC chief Roger Ailes has officially joined his host Bill O'Reilly on Keith Olbermann's list of The Worst People in the World. Ailes was named the worst for the very first time on MSNBC's Countdown Monday night."Apparently, its position as the network of choice for those aged 70 or over, or those with IQ's 70 or under, is insufficient," Olbermann started. "He is now threatening his own staffers, through 'now hiring' ads in trade publications, and through a statement issued by a spokesman. 'Anyone who displays launch-type intensity will continue to have a job at Fox News. Those who don't will not. And that includes talent.'"He concluded: "This just proves the theory that even in hell, Satan will still periodically demand more productivity from you."

I understand that Olbermann being on a last place network which is going to more taped programming because it is cheaper doesn't get Ailes annoyance. Ailes sees a lack of effort on the part of some because they are number one and have become complacent . A good leader does not allow that to happen and makes it known in various ways. The ad and the statement are two ways. If that doesn't work, start firing people. That is how any company that becomes the leader in their field stays that way. You can't allow yourself to get bloated and realize too late that you have to turn it around. Then you would be acting like CNN.
