On Friday, after referring to Valerie Plame as a "covert operative" (something neither the indictment nor prosecutor Fitzgerald was willing to do), Olby reveled in the indictment of Scooter Libby. The entire Hour of Spin was dedicated to The Great Leak Case. Not satisfied with a supposedly "impartial" viewpoint (VandeHei of the Post, again), KO turned to two heroes of the far left: John Dean and Lawrence O'Donnell ("Liar! Creepy Liar!").
The choice of O'Donnell, the discredited hack who was fired by MSNBC, is particularly rich. O'Donnell laid out a preposterous theory of the upcoming trial that displayed an appalling ignorance of evidentiary and criminal law. Why exactly does Olby continue his attempts to resuscitate the career of this deranged snake? Let's look at some of Lawrence O'Donnell's Greatest Hits, as documented in his hysterical rantings at Arianna Huffington's Blogarama:
Somehow Keith didn't manage to bring up any of these prior inconsistent statements to O'Donnell. Olby also pitched softballs to convicted felon John Dean, ever eager to smear anyone in the Bush administration, who asserted Libby lied without even bothering with "allegedly".
But analysis from Joe DiGenova? Victoria Toensing? Pat Buchanan? Even Chris Matthews, who all but salivates on screen at the thought of indictments, puts on people who occasionally disagree with him (even if he doesn't let them get in a word edgewise). But Keith Olbermann is above all that. He doesn't care about balance, or fairness. He doesn't even have to listen to his bosses at the network. The Hour of Spin is his own little fiefdom, and Keith Olbermann is not going to disappoint his 300,000 viewers with anything but Soros-approved propaganda.
