Olbermann On His Father and Health Care

Transcript and Video (first of five parts).

If you don't know, Olbermann has been missing a LOT of his shows recently. It's been due to his father's illness, and so he's been in the hospital pretty much constantly for the last couple of months.

Now, I don't agree with Olbermann on everything, and think he can be terribly shrill at times, but when he speaks from the heart he's worth listening to. And this was a full episode of him speaking from the heart about health care and his father.

I recommend the transcript, but if you've never seen Olbermann in his from-the-heart mode I suggest watching at least a few moments of the videos.
