It's been a while since I have watched Countdown. And, as a result, it's been a while since I have read the comments in OlbermannWatch. I felt the mission of OlbermannWatch had been achieved when Keith cried to the Hartford Courant that he was being "persecuted" by OlbermannWatch. For reasons that are a mystery even to me I decided to glance through the comments today.
I did notice that resident Cuckoo from Michigan, Marisa McNee is back posting under yet another psuedonym - "Sherry Starr". Long time readers will recall Marisa as the University of Michigan graduate student who tried to get OW web hosting provider, the Ann Arbor Police and the FBI - among others - to shut down OlbermannWatch. I'm not even going to bother to look at the web log files - her obsession with KO's sartorial splendor is a dead giveaway.
Trekkie seems to be a new addition to the collection of KO fanatics and loons who seem intent on frequenting this site.
I gather some other nutcase is posting as, variously, Real Liberal, Gaius Baltar, JDogg66, Curious George, Iron Mike, Mr Roboto Imperious Leader, and MVK. If that person is not Marisa then maybe Marisa can explain to that person how "effective" hiding behind such psuedonyms can be in hiding one's identity from the staff at OlbermannWatch Maybe we can have a contest to see how long it takes for OW to post that person's home address, phone number, place of work and a satellite photo of their house. Right, Marisa?
I did notice that the Olberfans discussion group is "gone". Maybe someone can provide a new link to that collection of whack jobs so we can all enjoy an unvarnished look at how the minds of KO fans really work (or don't work).
It seems that "someone" has taken it upon themselves to edit the Keith Olbermann entry on Wikipedia. For those not familiar with Wikipedia, anyone can edit the site. In this case it appears that the Olbermann.org folks have taken upon themselves to provide a one-sided view of KO that only a Loony Lefty could love. Here are a few "objective facts" from Keith's entry....
"(On leaving ESPN) he became increasingly unhappy commuting to ESPN's studios in Bristol, Connecticut, due to the area's remote location and lack of an active social scene. Those issues, coupled with whispers that he could be difficult to work or get along with contributed to his departure from ESPN in 1997."
Whispers? Keith is notorious for insulting just about everyone he works with. Keith has been known to alienate newsrooms by announcing to no one in particular "I can do everyone in this place's job better than they can" and stomping off.
"Olbermann and Chris Matthews' Hardball, also on MSNBC, tied for 1st place on MSNBC (and 21st place in all of cable news) in February 2006 with 400,000 viewers each for the month, according to Nielsen Media Research.
Talk about a stretch...there are 4 shows on during primetime on MSNBC and and Keith "tied for 1st"? is that liking winning a "participant" ribbon for a potato sack race during gym class in elementary school?
"Olbermann quickly became known and loved for his acid wit, his brutally honest reporting style and clever catch phrases, as well as his tight chemistry with co-anchor Patrick"
"In an explicit and controversial monologue, he attributed his tumor (and the resulting fear and pain) directly to his 27-year habit of smoking pipes and cigars."
Keith was roundly criticized by his peers for what was perceived as a petulant, self-absorbed comment; his boss Rick Kaplan unloaded on Keith for his lame attempt to equate his minor surgery to Peter Jennings death.
A link to Rolling Stone is labeled "Pro-Olbermann article" while a link to The Cornell Review is labeled "conservative article accusing Olbermann of bias".
On the plus side there is a link to Joe Hagan's article in The New York Observer where Keith sites me as one of the two bloggers he reads regularly and Mark Glaser's article in Online Journalism Review which quotes me at length. I don't see the Hartford Courant article.
Anyone right-minded individuals interested in providing a little editorial balance to Wikipedia? This would be an on-going project to monitor and update the Wikipedia entry everytime the Keith's KOooks deface Wikipedia with their loony left, pro-Keith rants.
I'm not sure whether I'm going to start posting over here regularly or not. I did get a Tivo recently and the ability to pause Keith's ramblings when he starts to go off the deep end might be a new, welcome way to watch the show. Plus, Tivo has a "delete now" key.
