    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    July 21, 2006
    Fox News Wishing You well

    David Bauder at AP writes:

    If someone at Fox News Channel wishes you well, watch your back. The seemingly benign sentiment is a creative signature of Fox's public relations, usually accompanied by a kneecapping. It's something like a kiss from a Mafia don.

    MSNBC host Keith Olbermann was the latest to visit the wishing well. When The New York Times recently asked Fox its opinion of Olbermann, who has repeatedly used Bill O'Reilly as a pinata on his nightly news countdown, spokeswoman Irena Briganti replied...

    Thank you Robt, it was a feel-good piece that set my evening off on the right foot!

    Why would MSNBC put something like this on their website? It makes FOX look good, if you ask me. Every one of their vicious hits was well deserved by the recipient.

    KFK:

    Because its filled with Olbermann yadda yadda yadda. And what they think is an equally biting remark by KO about how his ratings go up 25% a year (uh-huh).

    And because MSNBC has given up any pretense of knowing what news is.

    Great post, Mr. Cox. A good way to end the week.

    Well we know why KfK would think that article makes FOX look good--it's full of personal attacks. To me it shows the immaturity of some of the PR people at FOX News.

    Nonfactor and maturity.Nah nah nah nah.
    Nonfactor maturity "Bushie" bbbbaaaaadddddd.
    Nonfactor maturity war for oil bahhhh,bahhhh.

    Irena Briganti speaks truth
    A train wreck for Keith the Uncouth
    With his pending implosion
    And ratings erosion
    Keith's viewers all fit in a phone booth

    "To me it shows the immaturity of some of the PR people at FOX News."

    It is hard to equal your hero Keith's maturity level. One must school oneself in name-calling, harassment, and the arts of "Oddball" first.

    You know, Keith seems to have some very deep issues, Nonfactor. Have you seen the "for this relief much thanks" blog? All his "conquests" have labeled him a poor participant with difficulty finding his partners privates, as well as difficulty maintaining his . . . oh well! (Is that mature enough for you?)

    Oh no Non

    You're boy Keith has never gone the personal attack route. Oh yeah it's somebody at CNN that uses Coultergeist and The Giant Head among others. Not Keith! he is sooooooo above the fray!

    Thanks Robert! Another great post!

    I like this the best: "Olbermann doesn't find the whole thing particularly amusing. He may be the most frequent target, and he enshrined Briganti in his "worst person in the world" feature for the latest attack"

    AP missed the irony of a media celebrity with a nightly 'worse person in the world' complaining about harsh treatment at the hands of others in the media world.

    http://sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/sfgate/indexn?blogid=24

    Olberman mentioned in "NBC: Nothing But Cocktails" post. Goodman, a centrist relative to the batshit crazies of the San Francisco Chronicle, writes that Olberman is a "misunderstood visionary".

    How can an Olberman kool aid drinker be characterized a centrist? Google Jon Carroll and Marc Morford. Yes, there are harsh Bush critics on the opinion pages of most major papers in the country. Carroll and Morford are in the Living/Datebook/Entertainment section of the newspaper. BDS even bleeds into Sports through Scott Ostler.

    So the conservatives here are admitting that the personal attacks used by FOX News' PR person were immature and uncalled for?

    If you'll admit Robert Byrd probably hung blacks to advance himself in the Ku Klux Klan. And that Ted Kennedy killed Mary Jo Kepechne. Sure i will give you immature. But uncalled for...not in this lifetime.

    "Well we know why KfK would think that article makes FOX look good--it's full of personal attacks. To me it shows the immaturity of some of the PR people at FOX News."

    Nonfactor,

    Let me be the third to ask you, possibly more directly this time: why can Keith get away with personal attacks against Fox News on a daily basis, yet when Fox does the same, they are labeled as immature?

    Ok, darn it, I'll admit it. I hold Fox News and basically all Conservativism to a higher standard. Call me a liberal. What can I say?

    The Associated Press has another Olbermann-Bill O'Reilly/Fox News story posted. Two stories in two days -- must be a slow weekend for the AP folks handing out assignments in the news/entertainment world.

    As per the AP article- Is Olberdousche kidding himself? Is he really 15 and not close to 50??? 'If I was a foot shorter there probably would have been a confrontation'???? How much of a simpleton is this guy? O'Reilly was actually a former college athlete who did more than sniff jocks in his younger years like Olberpussy. I sincerely doubt he would back down to that slug.

    Why is it that Olbermann can't get in the papers these days unless he mentions Bill O'Reilly? Pretty pathetic huh?

    why can Keith get away with personal attacks against Fox News on a daily basis, yet when Fox does the same, they are labeled as immature?

    I think all personal attacks are immature. Calling Bill O'Reilly falafel man is okay, but calling him crazy falafel man isn't called for unless he did something crazy.

    Yeah Nonfactor! Great point! Look at this photo:

    Now, this may look like a crazed attempt to mock the competition, undertaken by a desperate man failing in the ratings. However, it is really the highest form of satire! Extremely clever and innovative!

    By the way, Olbermann is last in the ratings. Despite the Middle east conflict he is losing heavily to NANCY GRACE, the "Judge Judy" of cable news on the second-string CNN Headline News channel!

    Thursday July 20th ratings:

    TOTAL
    1. OReilly 2,702
    2. Zahn 880
    3. Grace 654
    4. Olbermann 458

    DEMO
    1. OReilly 679
    2. Zahn 339
    3. Grace 226
    4. Olbermann 151

    Brian the TVLoser has promised to look into the situation and if Olbermann drops out of mythical second place by 2010, he promises to report it!

    I wonder if "Untalented Unger" did better on Friday?

    yeah, you people seem to not understand relatives. countdown is now the top rated show on msnbc, which is a relatively good showing, while zahn is not even close to the top on cnn, and oreilly sometimes is top but not always on fox. also convient to use thursdays numbers when wednesdays are much better for olberman, ever heard of small sample size, or is that just a liberal media invention. and btw byrd was and possibly is a rascist to this day. thats unacceptable. but gop head ken mehlman only recently appoligized for the gop's southern strategy, where they coopted racisim from democrats in the 1960's. that quite a nice legacy, to continue defacto segreation after martin luther king.

    some wingnut writes "Coutdown is now the top rated show on msnbc, which is relatively good showing" and Blah,blah,blah.......Hey Einstein, we have used friday numbers, thursdays, mondays, guess what? you're boy don't make a million, while right now most nights Bill is doing over 2 million! Uncle Floyd was the top rated show on channel 68. the rest of the station was dobie gilles and green acres reruns. POINT! It's the best show on a last place cable network! The only difference? Uncle Floyd was funny! Olby is pathetic!

    And whats up with the Ken Mehlman point? What in the Wild,Wild,Wild,World of I-Hop Pancakes does this have to do with ratings. Stick to subject Poindexter! Hey! when I start seeing YOU'RE BOY! doing over a million a night every night for a month come on back and talk to me. THATS RIGHT WHEN YOU'RE BOY IS DOING A MILLION A NIGHT A MONTH FOR OVER A MONTH COME BACK AND TALK TO ME!!!!!

    I laugh my ass off when I hear you wing-nuts go crazy because Keith got a few extra viewers because YOU'RE BOY at tvsnoozer used (LS+DS+SD+LSD=BS!!!!)

    lets stick to the eight' o clock slot. BILL CLEANS YOU'RE BOY'S CLOCK!!!!!.........NIGHT AFTER NIGHT AFTER NIGHT AFTER NIGHT AFTER NIGHT!!!!

    Oh and one last thing? You're boy Byrd? Correct me? Wasn't he a GRAND KLEGAL IN THE KLAN? But you're down with that? And you say you're no wingnut. What the hell you drinkin'? Thunderbird or Night Train Express? Should I be looking for pic on bumwines.com?

    correction: should I be lookin' for you're picture.

    You know after much thought over my cup of Rain Forest Crunch coffee.(good shit) I have come to this hypothis.

    Watching Countdown is like drinking a bottle of Nighttrain

    You go from on a sober to stupid, one way, no roundtrip avalable.....With a strong possibility of a train wreck along the way.

    I find it funny how big of a deal conservatives on this site want to make ratings. Nobody else reading this site cares.

    I think I speak for all of the clear-thinking readers of this site when I say that I seriously doubt that Nonfactors opinions about this site reflect anything close to a consensus opinion about anything.

    Nonfactors opinions about this site reflect anything close to a consensus opinion about anything.

    So you think a majority of "clear-thinking" (read right-wing conservative) people think this site is an upstanding blog exposing the evils of liberals and Keith Olbermann? Ha.

    According to recent studies by the Olbermann Watch Research Institute, 87% of clear-thinkers find Olbermann Watch to be "upstanding" while 61% believe that Olbermann Watch plays a key role in exposting the evils of liberals while 98% believe that Olberman Watch is the single greatest force for good in the universe.

    UPDATE: OlbyWatch Radio - I will be live on the Pat Campbell radio show at 8:05 to 8:20AM ET to discuss KO, his Nazi salute and all things Olby. Pat's blog is here. There is a live stream here(you have to register but it's free).

    "I find it funny how big of a deal conservatives on this site want to make ratings. Nobody else reading this site cares."

    Of course Olbermann doesn't care about ratings either, aside from times where he says that they are in 2nd place and other mythical numbers.

    I find it funny that he lies about numbers and it's called out but when we use numbers to show how he is wrong and has poor ratings, we are the ones that are at fault and care so much. Simply put ratings matter, you will find 99.9% of shows being canned is because of ratings. (or maybe 95%)

    And before I get called out on it, I am not a conservative, I'm both a republican and democrat. (in the middle so to say, though the only show I watch on MSNBC is Tucker and sometimes Hardball, The Situation and Cooper on CNN and Shepard/Hume for FOX)

    Sorry about the double post, why in the world is CGI being used for comments? (no offense intended, but CGI is inconsistent and PHP is not only very reliable but it is much faster)
