    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    February 3, 2005
    Limbaugh Rips Olbermann a New One

    Calls Countdown the Kook Hour

    One could hardly imagine how anyone could demogogue that silly GI Joe doll fraudulently being used in a supposed terrorist hostage video. Yet Olbermann found a way, and Rush Limbaugh gave him a "what for" in return:

    All right, so then we moved to eight o'clock on MSNBC when it was time for the kook portion of that network. Keith Olbermann, and he finally found a way to put the spin on this story that you would expect from a kook, and that is somehow this is America's fault, blame America first. He went out and found a guest, a terrorism consultant by the name of Evan Coleman, and Olbermann said, "Is there doubt that this is a fraud?"

    Rush then quoted the following exchange between Olbermann and Coleman:

    COLEMAN: No. There's really no doubt. A close analysis of the photo itself revealed that the photo had been edited sloppily and you could actually see the pixels that had been edited. Unless this guy has a perpendicular slab of skin hanging off his face he's not real and I think what really hit the mark here was that looking at the banner that was behind him that, that banner was supposed to be the banner of Zarqawi's group, Al-Qaeda in Iraq, yet the writing on it appeared to most of us that actually know Arabic, it appeared to have been written by someone or traced by someone with no knowledge of the Arabic language. So in terms of your earlier question, I think the answer is we look like we may have another Benjamin Vanderford-style hoax here, a hoax that may have come actually from inside the United States.

    OLBERMANN: Is there any suggestion that -- besides when you just referred to that it's -- that it's not necessarily from the Middle East? Because it does -- it seems farfetched that some would-be terrorist in Iraq would really think that no one would notice that they've photographed a toy as a hostage.

    Rush nailed it! The damned left-wing media created the illusion of an Iraqi insurgency, all to discredit Bush. Thank God for the radar-sharp ability of Rush to cut through all of the noise and lock onto the real story. I'm sure we'll see further evidence of this conspiracy in coming weeks and months. Then the MSM'll have some `splainin' to do...The subversive MSM isn't worthy of holding Rush's head up while he pukes. Rush deserves a Presidential Freedom Medal. The nerve of KO!

    At best, this exchange is sophomoric grandstanding and at worst, a cardinal waste of time. Glad I was watching Seinfeld reruns.

    If this picture shows a lettered backdrop feigning an Arab language, isn't that proof enough that it's likely not perpetrated by a Middle Easterner?

    Hi-Cecelia and Bob, hi Paul.

    May the MSM and Kieth O. spend an eternity in hell, hunting up a cold spot !

    BTW I think Rush is both lucky and talented.

    Rush had the great fortune to start a new radio program at the same time that a large group of folks were fed up with the standard "elite" world view programing on the radio (full blown denial about their bias also) I count myself in that group then, and even more so today.

    But luck alone would never explain 20,000,000 million listeners each day. I think allot of his critics have under estimated his talent and instincts for humor, politics and his ability to spar with the best of them. It makes them feel "confident" in their assumptions and pretenses like someone who whistles while taking a short cut through a graveyard at midnight.

    Many left wing radio talents have tried to match his success but so far have failed to do so. Even the best attempts have fallen way short and have been pale ghosts by comparison.

    Can I listen to his program for 4 hours every day. No way. I listen to him in relatively small doses of about 1/2 hour twice a week or so when I'm driving. Nonetheless I take comfort from the fact that my friend is on the radio every day for 4 hours.

    Us bloggers know that their are some big changes up ahead. I wonder what the media-print-radio-TV-Internet-telephone-computers will be like in 10 years? Pretty exciting ,don't ya think?


    That 20 mil number might be each but verify!

    Hey, Rubin!

    I don't listen to Rush often because I tend to play CDs when driving but I listen to the "lovable little fuzzball" when I remember that he's on.

    That reminds me, an e-mail correspondent told me that Rush has been dating the dishy CNN correspondent Daryn Kagan.

    I wonder if that's true. Rush met his former wife via e-mail and after news of their separation I was joking with my husband that I was going to start e-mailing Rush and if everything went as planned, I'd have a Manhattan apartment, a Florida estate, and a little love nest on the side to hide him in. Guess Daryn has beaten me to it...
