"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
"Kat Scratch McPheever"
The Man Tan Man started The Hour of Spin with accusations against US troops, including one that has been disproven: the BBC report regarding Ishaqi. Olby did
not mention that the video the Beeb used as their source came from a group that sides with the terrorists. KO thought it was a big deal that Tony Snow didn't know if the President had been briefed on two alleged incidents or three.
When Colonel Jack Jacobs came on, the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann showed his true colors again. Just yesterday he was accusing Bill O'Reilly of slandering US troops, while out of the other side of his mouth Olby was implying that Haditha was not an isolated incident. Tonight, he was at it again:
The pictures of the dead bodies there show what appear to be bullet wounds. They don't show signs of bodies being crushed by falling debris, as the military has claimed.... Does any of that seem questionable to you, or at, uh, a minimum, perhaps, slapdash?
A superb example of how OlbySpin can be used to smear US troops. Even though they have been cleared by an investigation, Krazy Keith continues to imply that they are guilty of something, based on video provided by terrorists! American Forces: Guilty until Proven Innocent, at least on OlbyPlanet.
Col Jacobs provided even-handed analysis, despite Olby's leading questions, like this one that parrots Murtha talking points:
Is this s-, kind of thing evidence of fatigue of, uh, of of the military, the overstretched criticism that we keep hearing about the US military in Iraq, in Afghanistan, elsewhere around the world, that we're too thin and it's, it's now showing up on the ground?
The main reason we keep hearing it is because Keith Olbermann keeps repeating it. Olby continued:
Some might argue that President Bush does not appear to have been impacted enough by the war in Iraq...
Some might argue? Who would those "some" be? The leading blue bloggers? Or the host of Countdown? It doesn't matter which; ideologically they are indistinguishable. This was a lead in to regurgitated NBC video from Norah "Whatever" O'Donnell about how the Presidency ages Presidents. Then the #4 story, framed with an oh-so-clever bit of OlbySpin:
Homeland Security: the primary goal of any government, or our own propaganda attempt? If the administration boasted of foiling a terror plot against the Brooklyn Bridge, then took the bridge off the official list of national iconic possible terror targets.
Get the hint? There was no plot against the Brooklyn Bridge. The guy who was found guilty must have been framed by the evil US government. And just in case that was too subtle for the gullible viewers of Countdown, KO reinforced the insinuation by resuscitating his Krazy Keith Konspiracy: terror threats are phony, and are just for political manipulation. There followed more recycled video from the network mothership about Homeland Security grant allocations.
In the #3 slot, crimes against gas station personnel. Yes, more regurgitated video. Then Monica Novotny with a feature on courtroom artists who draw celebrities. #2: Brittney Spears, Kevin Federline, and the creepy Michael Musto. The latter was promoted from the #1 death slot (reserved tonight for a best-of-the-month oddball fest) because he is just so witty, clever, and uproariously funny. Then on to Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, and Katie Holmes. And with the TomKat story Keith was at his absolute journalistic best:
Internet reports say the couple has already decided on a wedding singer... It's Katherine McPhee from American Idol, TomKat's new favoritest singer ever.
Internet reports? Hey, that's good enough for Olby. In fact, he insisted:
Now, I am not making this up!
Krazy Keith claimed the singer had met TomKat at a Scientology center and they became fast friends, so they asked her to sing. It's another Olbermann Scoop! The only problem is that it's false. It's more Olbermann "fake news". Katherine McPhee has been saying publicly for several days now that:
1. She is not a Scientologist.
B. Nobody has asked her to sing at Tom Cruise's wedding. Nobody.
III. She has never even met Tom or Katie.
The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann scratches again. But hey, why bother with going to the source when you can cite "internet reports"! Why bother with verifying a story before broadcasting it to the world? Or rather, broadcasting it to the smallest 8:00 pm audience in cable news? With Krazy Keith there's no stopping the relentless tide of bull even briefly enough to check one fact.
A New York Post (Rupert Murdoch owned) writer was one "worst person" runner-up; the other was the New York comptroller who inelegantly praised Sen Chuck Shumer by saying the Senator would like to shoot President Bush between the eyes.
That's The Hour of Spin for this, the 105th day of the Keith Olbermann CoverUp. And the magic number is still 6.
