"I’m a selfish baby and a rude asshole and not a person to trust with your feelings."
Ok good. How about trying not to be that if you recognize that's the case? And he calls his blog "Dan Harmon Poops". He's awful.
But there's a meta-dodge here. If he really had internalized this as a truth about himself, he'd be able to just apologize without the rationalizations and explanations. If he's truly upset at how he hurt the "team" of fans and the show, then do like the cliche says and take one for the team.
He wants it both ways; "I was wrong to make a federal case about it; Chevy really is an asshole and you shouldn't like him, but I should be bigger than that about letting it be known. Which, by the way, I'm doing here."
Olbermann on Letterman also made me sad. Did he think he was walking into a world-class operation? His complaints and attitude really soured me. If you're gonna be a flagship to a new venture, you've got to commit. Howard at SIRIUS is a kind of template. Whether it succeeds or fails is up to the business folk, but in those 1st years, through new tech glitches and less than stellar marketing efforts, he put out the show and pulled for the company.
If the difference between running a show and not was lighting and tech issues, then maybe give up being a "$10M chandelier" and be an "$8M chandelier" and let 2M go to solving those issues. Also, with the weight gain, he looked like Glenn Beck.
