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".
