A must-see

On the 16th of August, 2010 Keith Olbermann delivered his "special comment" on the misconception in calling the proposed development the "Ground Zero Mosque" and the inaccuracies surrounding the rumours.

What followed was a wonderfully eloquent commentary on the fear of terrorism in the United States that has been prevalent since 9/11 and the eroding nature this fear has on society as a whole. It is a much, much better version of what I messily attempted to discuss in my  review of Four Lions, and even though it runs to nearly 13 minutes, I recommend sitting through it as it is one of the most breathtaking and passionate speeches I’ve heard on TV in a long time.
