Of course, I don't exactly mark my calendar to make sure I catch Countdown on TV. To be honest, I don't even know its timeslot off the top of my head. Which I was pleasantly astonished to find it in the podcast section of the iTunes Store.
Not just clips, or sound bites. Video. Of the whole show.
It's not perfect of course. Mainly because each episode eats up about 220 meg on my hard drive. My laptop hard drive with 20 gig free. So, uh... don't think I'll exactly be archiving these things. But it is impressive that they did this, if not entirely surprising. Olbermann has long tried to stay on top of the "internets."
Of course, as always with these things, while I'm impressed and grateful to get this so conveniently (and so free!) I'm still a little confused as to the long-term business model of giving non-ad-laden stuff away on the internet for free. Nice publicity stunt, but how far can you go with it? Hmm.
As a side note: MSNBC didn't exactly pick the most flattering picture of Keith there, did they?
