Occupy Wall Street: Michael Moore says Dems and GOP ‘feed at the same trough’

One thing they don’t talk about in this clip is how much corporate money and Wall Street money fund, at least, Olbermann’s salary. I doubt Current TV will turn down any ad dollars because the candidate took money from sources Olbermann finds objectionable.
