First story on The Last Word w/ Lawrence O’Donnell tonight: the Occupy Wall Street protests. Not just a brief mention, either: the first 15 minutes were dedicated to talking in depth about how Wall Street’s greed has led to the protests we’re seeing day after day, including an interview with Michael Moore. O’Donnell says he will also address police brutality at the end of the program. Great example of the growing media coverage on Occupy Wall Street.
Good to see.

Orly Taitz’ last TV appearance: We cannot imagine she’s going to get on TV after this takedown by Lawrence O’Donnell. (She didn’t get the last word.)

Lawrence O’Donnell just told it like it is. He had a chance to attack Jon Kyl for the whole Planned Parenthood “90 percent” line, but instead focused on what he called the ”fanatical enemies of Planned Parenthood who hate the idea that the word ‘planned’ should ever come before the word ‘parenthood.’” Good work, Larry — you focused on the right issue here.

Meanwhile, while Glenn Beck and Lawrence O’Donnell are arguing/agreeing about whether or not the Japan nuclear crisis is going to end the world (it’s not), thousands have been killed, thousands more are currently without a roof over their head, and millions more could face electricity issues for months after the Japan quake seriously damaged the power grid. Good to see they’re keeping things in perspective by arguing over who’s right. source

So, what happens to Keith Olbermann’s old MSNBC slot now?
- departure Keith Olbermann shockingly announced his departure from MSNBC tonight, making the left half of the Interwebs explode. (Here’s the video.)
- replacement Lawrence O’Donnell will be replacing Keith in the 8 p.m. slot, and Ed Schultz will replace O’Donnell at 10 p.m. Why not give our boy Cenk his own show? source

Max Headroom: How 24-hour news cycles numb grave tragedies
Look, it’s been a long week. It feels like a lot has happened since the events of last Saturday, and it might feel good to have a palate-cleanser here, but instead, here’s this Lawrence O’Donnell clip. This whole Arizona debate has been about tone – the whole thing. It’s never been about looking for blame, even if that’s what some saw in it. It was a valid argument then and it still is a week later. That’s why this clip makes us uncomfortable. We somehow got from tragedy to Sarah Palin to this story angle, where it feels like everything has come full-circle – the emotion isn’t there. It’s just the acerbic commentary that doesn’t help as much as it thinks it does. There’s a good debate – about what Palin or other commentators on both sides should or shouldn’t have done. If anything, the circumstances lent themselves to these questions. Now it’s time to let the questions stand on their own, without the shadow of the tragedy. Let’s make them two separate things.

So, Lawrence O’Donnell is our hero. Faced with the halting Alvin Greene on Monday night’s show, he starts off questioning by jokingly asking, “Are you a witch?” Given the opportunity to basically own the conversation, Alvin Greene completely flubs it, by answering that “DeMint started the recession.” He does the same thing for the next question. And the one after that. Dude, O’Donnell was throwing softballs your way. SOFTBALLS! source
Alvin Greene sticking to those talking points a little too much
