"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Guest Host: Brian Unger
Tonight The Hour of Spin had need of a political analyst, so they turned to Shrummy. The last time they had a political analyst on was, well, last week: Lawrence ("Liar! Creepy Liar!") O'Donnell. And by sheerest coincidence, both are Democrats! Who says Countdown isn't fair and balanced? They give you the full range of viewpoints: from far left to deranged left.
Unger must really be auditioning for Olby's job. He began with a litany of distortions and lies worthy of The Master himself:
The Iraqi Prime Minister floating a proposal that would pardon insurgents who have attacked American troops, but were not involved in the shedding of any Iraqi blood.
That's what the Post claimed this morning, but this afternoon the Iraqi government shot down the story, stating absolutely that the amnesty would not apply to anyone who had injured or killed any coalition troops. Unger, in true Olbermann fashion, reported the Post's version, but completely ignored the correction. Wolffe did the same, so the entire Countdown audience, all 300,000 of them, were deliberately misinformed by another misleading, false story.
The American President apparently OK with that.
Huh? According to the Associated Press
Bush suggested he would not like to see terrorists given amnesty as part of the process. "If somebody has committed a crime, I don't know whether or not they'll be that lenient, frankly," Bush said.
So where did Unger get the idea that Bush was "OK with that"? He made it up! But wait, there's more:
Republican lawmakers have been debating a measure that essentially ties the war in Iraq to the war on terror, a link that has been proven not to exist.
Amazing! There is no terrorism in Iraq. It's been "proven", because a failed comedian says so.
In talking with Schrum, Unger twice lied that Karl Rove called Kerry and Murtha "cowards", and Schrummy picked up on it, talking about how ironic it was that Rove would "throw around the word 'coward'". But Rove never said it. Where did Unger get that from? He made it up! This interview had so many softballs it could have been Krazy Keith himself asking the questions.
When Presidential poll numbers are down, Countdown rushes to report them. And when they are up, as we have documented many times, there is no coverage. So with Bush back up to 40%, Countdown doesn't mention it. They had more important news, like an exclusive interview with Brittney Spears. Not to mention the segment on the popularity of gray hair. How is it that they neglected to interview David Gregory about his chemically enhanced mane of gray?
Needless to say, the loathesome epistles of prolific emailer Keith Olbermann were totally ignored. From the rest of Olby's peers on MSNBC, the silence is, as the cliche goes, deafening. Not a word of support, not a word of condemnation either, prompting viewers to now ask whether Keith Olbermann, with his crude, hateful comments, is the new spokesperson for MSNBC.
