On each of his daily one-hour "Countdown With Keith Olbermann" shows, MSNBC commentator Keith Olbermann offers up three nominations for what he considers the "Worst Person In The World."
Sometimes, the "honorees" are not individuals, but companies or institutions.
Today, Keith singled out AT&T as the "Bronze" (i.e. third place) "winner." Keith reasons: the new "criticize us and you could be gone" Terms of Service language I wrote about here (and which more than 60 comments have been made so far).
Here's what Keith said:
Tonight the bronze to AT&T, which has just advised users of what they like to call, updated terms of service. You know, this is the thing that comes in the bill you throw away.
However In this one the company reserves the right to cancel or suspend your service if you do anything it believes, quote, "tends to damage the name or reputation of AT&T or itsparents, affiliate or subsidiaries.
So if you tell a neighbor that AT&T's Internet service isn't real good, they could just drop you. Nice.
If we live in Myanmar.
But hey guess what During the commercial break after that segment, there appeared an ad from-- AT&T.
