OLBYWATCH GUIDE: Presenting the many faces of Keith Olbermann, in his own words:
OLBY, THE INVESTIGATIVE SLEUTH:
Something smells funny to me about this Newsweek apology, then retraction.
OLBY, THE IMPARTIAL REPORTER:
Newsweek quotes a government source on this, as you mentioned, then gets blasted by the White House. Newsweek apologies but won't retract. Then Scott McClellan makes himself available to the networks for interviews--a rare occurence--in which he blasts Newsweek even further. And then late this afternoon Newsweek retracts. Are these events interrelated, or am I a victim of my own favorite logical fallacy here?
OLBY, THE RELENTLESS FACT-CHECKER
How do you feel if you're Gen Meyers tonight, or if you're Gen Eikenberry in Jalalabad, and you said the Afghan riots were not caused by the Newsweek story and today the White House said yes they were...
Note: KO repeatedly brings up these early assessments that didn't connect the riots to the Newsweek story, but ignores more recent reports:
Thousands of Muslims gathered in Pakistan's main cities yesterday after sermons in mosques denouncing the desecration..."The Holy Koran was defiled by the dirtiest of hands, by American hands," a protester shouted as others burnt American and Israeli flags.
OLBY, THE NON-PARTISAN INTERVIEWER:
[talking to Rep Jane Slaughter about charges that intel was "fixed" to support the Iraq War...]
Two devil's advocate questions...the second devil's advocate question...
When was the last time KO ever apologized for a question to a Republican or conservative by going out his way to note that he was being a "devil's advocate"?
