Olby began Tuesday's Countdown by making the lead not just the Coretta Scott King funeral, but more particularly the anti-Bush comments made there. Just to make the point, he ran those clips twice. Keith, for no reason, brought up how Bush was booed at the Pope's funeral, and called in Dana Milbank to take his bait with comments like how the President is used to "prescreened audiences". This is probably the first time in recent memory that KO and Drudge ran similar headlines. Of course, Olby had a different spin, suggesting that "conservatives" would write columns about a possible backlash.
In the #4 slot KO began a report on Karl Rove's so-called "blacklist" with a historical analogy to the blacklist of the 1950s and Nixon's "enemies list". Hey, another Nixon comparison, two nights in a row! The story comes from Insight magazine, a conservative publication that, to our knowledge, Olbermann has never once used as a source for anything. But since they have a juicy tidbit about Rove, all of a sudden they are a valued resource. Then it was back to NSA "spying" and the FISA court, via a regurgitated, and superficial, NBC taped piece.
After oddball, the #3 story was an amalgam of church burning and cartoon protests overseas, the latter via another taped rerun from NBC. From there on out it was full speed ahead into fluff and sleaze, with celebrities, scantily-clad female valets, and Brittney Spears, with the creepy Michael Musto again.
