Barbara Olson was a great woman. I have read "The Final Days," and it is an exhaustive and damning indictment not just of the final few weeks of the Clinton Presidency but of the former first couple in general.

That said, if you want to compare her "star power" to George Harrison and many other "celebrities" who died this past year, she comes up way short.

I would only take offense if lesser lights of the left who died in this past year receive more prominence.

NBC ignored (killed) the Broderick story also. They won't air much on Barbara because she is everthing they despise. NBC mangement and their talking heads are not much better than puke in my book. I boycott EVERTHING the networks air, including MTP, sitcoms, everything! All I need for news is FreeRepublic and Fox news (not even Drudge, who FR often scoops).

Well, start taking offense. Again we are talking about NBC-related material. There is no absence of focus on the sister of Katie Couric who died this year, a wild leftist activist/politician virtually unknown outside the state of Virginia. She got attention today, even on Fox, while NBC omitted mention of Barbara Olson.
