Thursday night's Countdown opened with a brief mention of the New York Times poll showing an uptick in the President's approval ratings. Olby quickly moved to speculation that Joe Lieberman might replace Rumsfeld as Secretary of Defense. Lieberman? Who's he? He's that fellow whose speeches on Iraq don't get covered on Countdown. Oh, that Lieberman.
We're mentioned before Keith's ignorance of the news that he spins five nights a week. Tonight gave us a fresh example. In questioning Ken Bazinet, Olby had this brilliant insight:
A Democrat of any shape, stripe, or form in the Bush administration? Would there not be rioting from the hard right?
Um, Mr Olbermann, there's been a Democrat in Bush's cabinet since 2001, when Norman Mineta was named Secretary of Transportation, a position he still holds today. Where does Keith get his knowledge of current events from, the backs of Wheaties boxes?
After the Bad News from Iraq report, we got fresh insights into The Great Leak Case, courtesy of Lawrence ("Liar! Creepy Liar!") O'Donnell. Only KO would keep resuscitating this discredited hack, and you can be sure that he never asked him about the "at least three high-level Bush administration indictments" he predicted, or his other fantasized fictions.
For the #4 story, Olbermann again brought up the London subway shooting to frame his "report" on the Miami events. He said his skepticism "seems to have been justified" and then lied for the second day in a row that "no witnesses" have "come forward" who heard anything about a bomb. To make the smarminess complete, he boasted there was a witness who supported his loathsome theory that this is all a cover-up of a cold blooded murder. You see, this witness said he didn't hear anything about a bomb. Aha! Proof positive! Never mind that the witness was in the middle of the plane, and the incident took place in the back--something KO didn't bother to report. Never mind all the people who did hear it. Guest Mary Schiavo was remarkably tolerant of Olby's repulsive insinuendo.
Afterwards Keith moved on to police videos, pandas, and John Lennon. But not before his 45th attack on Mr Bill O'Reilly. It was another double-header, with O'Reilly both runner-up and winner of "worst person in the world", dutifully lifted from the pages of Media Matters. The transgressions that outraged KO were so lame there's hardly any point in analyzing them. The best response will be the next set of Nielsen ratings; the way Keith's numbers are going, they might change the name of the program from Countdown to SunkDown.
