Ben Affleck does Keith Olbermann

I enjoy cable news but there is definitely a difference between each major cable news network and I’m not going to try to persuade you to watch one over the other, but I do encourage you to not be stuck watching one network all the time. It’s important to be exposed to a variety of different ‘slants’. For example we all know FOX news leans republican and MSNBC leans democrat. So once in awhile, flip over to a cable news channel that you normally don’t watch, just to get a sense of what other people are seeing and hearing.

It will be no surprise that I choose to watch MSNBC and Keith Olbermann is a large part of that reason. I find him to be a very skilled anchor on his ideological show, “Countdown with Keith Olbermann”. He isn’t afraid of showing passion and certainly isn’t afraid of letting people know his opinion as you will see below.

So when I saw the Saturday Night Live skit with Ben Affleck impersonating Keith Olbermann, I thought it was so funny I had to share it.

For those who haven’t watched the show, watch the video below to see how well Affleck took Olbermann’s mannerisms and tweaked them just enough to be hilarious but not so much it drifts away from an impersonation!
