OLBYWATCH GUIDE: KO and staff must have had the day off because the first three pieces were straight up NBC pieces undoubtedly played on other NBC programs for which KO added only a brief intro. KO did manage to get into one Christian bashing piece about a small church in East Waynesville, North Carolina that expelled nine Kerry voters for voting for Kerry. Which is fine if there was any context, or any balanced stories, ever, of blue state discrimination against Bush voters of which there has been plenty.
On to his usual tabloid news show, Michael Jackson, Runaway Bride, yawn, Paula Abdul and the Pope's old Volkswagon, yawn. Finally, his #1 story was about some bogus study that pronounced that housewives should be paid $131,417 a year-another blow for feminism struck by KO.
The problem as usual with this show is that most of the news is tabloid, far left biased, or done by someone besides KO, ie NBC news.
KO spent a lot of time ridiculing the Runaway Bride, perhaps she is his new Michael Jackson, although he managed to take a few shots at him tonight too. Is it just me, or does it not seem like the media has a big share of responsibility for the Runaway Bride story? They ran with a story where a bride was missing for only three days, and hyped it into an abduction/murder case when another explanation was far more likely at that point. The woman never asked for all this coverage, and the huge coverage is what is making people so resentful of her at this point. I think the media could do a little soul searching about this one, including KO.
