    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    October 10, 2005
    Previews of Coming Attractions

    The first story (#5 on the backwards newshour) was the Pakistan earthquake. Instead of a recycled NBC report, Keith ran a recycled package from ITV. (If Fox can get a reporter in there and file live reports from the scene, why can't MSNBC?) #4 was the New Orleans policemen beating up a suspect (this was a recycled NBC piece).

    It must have really steamed Olby that he had to report actual news of the day, thereby pushing the nightly Karl Rove spot back to the #3 spot. KO teased that "new evidence" has shown up, then introduced the segment with a lengthy tangent about the Teapot Dome scandal! Oh, the "new evidence" Olby promised? Judith Miller's notebook (not merely yesterday's news, but last week's news) and an email sent by Karl Rove (reported by Michael Isikoff yesterday). Jim Vandehei of the Washington Post bloviated for Keith using the "on the one hand, on the other hand" technique: it could be harmless, it could be conspiracy. And so on.

    Encouraged by cronies like Craig Crawford and the Olby worshipping bloggers, KO donned his tinfoil chapeau once again to suggest terror alerts are all a White House trick to distract people from bad news. Considering that on the Hour of Spin, bad news for the White House is found just about every day of every week, it's not clear exactly when a terror alert wouldn't coincide with one of Olby's anti-Bush jihads. But in case you want to swim in the paranoia pool with Keith & Company, KO announced that Wednesday's Countdown will feature a Special Report on the subject. We're sure it will be "special".

    Oh goody! A "special report" on the Bush Administration using terror alerts for political purposes...

    That sort of investigative reporting is right up Keith's alley. START with a claim-- The Bush Administration has cynically played politics with terror alerts. THEN frame up all events coinciding with terror alerts as being proof of that claim.

    Easy reporting if you're allowed to do it... Wonder if Keith will allow his audience to also hear counters from White House, federal, state, and local officials who were involved in the situations and who don't see it things Keith's way? Don't bet the mortgage on it...

    Remember all the "wag the dog" claims about the Clnton Administration that were the fodder of internet chat boards? Can you also remember one mainstream journalist who embraced those claims and then set out to air how that suspicion was reality based? You can't. Probably because such a thing would have been a career impediment to a journalist. Colleagues would have started tittering that said journalist had lost his/her perspective and gone off the deep end. And that at BEST. At worst, that journalist would have been pegged as a "Clinton-hater" (remember THAT pejorative and all the baggage hung on it) who had joined ranks with the American Spectator crowd.

    But now the Daily Kos and Eschaton sorts have their very own news show with an anchorman who juxtaposes President Bush's face with a groundhog and who makes mocking comments about the "the internets" and evangelical conservatives. It's news analysis "with a twist", MSNBC says. Yeah, a political and ideological "twist", fronted by an anchor who is said to have no ideological and political ties and who therefore is not a political partisan.

    And on top of that, it's a show that has journalists and select conservatives serve as an amen chorus to the anchor's charges instead of pesky WH spokesmen and Republicans who actually differ with the anchor.

    I doubt that anyone on FOX New could ever get a gig like that.

    So put the Pulitzer people on alert: Countdown is doing an "investigative" piece on the White House.

    Keith is a real champion of the "little guy," especially if that guy likes jihadists!

    Caught his "worst person in the world" segment. He called a newspaper the "worst person [sic]." One would think Keith might get smart and alter the segment title to make sense. How about "worst organization in the world" if a Newspaper is his target? But nobody ever accused Keith of thinking straight.

    You see, Olby doesn't like the huge media enterprise called "The Reporter," which is a paper based out of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin (Estimated population of Fond du Lac in July 2002 = 42,295). It seems "The Reporter" attributed to Senior Special Agent Jeff Stillings the belief that gas station owner Faryad Hussain was "one of the plotters of the 9/11 terrorist attacks and an agent for Osama bin Laden." The newspaper corrected the story a day later stating that Hussain was ONLY "an applauder" of the terrorists!

    In Keith's world this is a HORRIBLE injustice! You see, Faryad just hates the US and likes Jihadists, that's all! Who doesn't love those cuddly guys? How could the paper cross the line and call him a terrorist when he just admires them?

    Olby is a humna stain. He doesn't name terrorists "worst people" for blowing up civilians (including babies) in Iraq, but mislabeling a closet jihadist as an active jihadist is the worst thing anyone can do!

    Good job Keith! You have earned your Moonbat Commandant badge!

    By the way, the NYC terror threat came from a tip from a jerk in Iraq. After interrogations of suspects there, the guy who initially lied admitted it was all a hoax. How is that Bush's fault? How about Olby interviews the Iraqi who pulled this stunt or better yet the members of the armed forces who interrogated him? Naaaah -- it's much more fun to pretend Karl Rove set this all up.

    Now, Krazy. Surely you understand Keith wouldn't want anyone to jump to a false conclusion based on coincidence and logical fallacies.
