    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    July 2, 2006
    "Life is defined by how much you improve the lives of others"

    I'm having the dry heaves in the bathroom because my moral sensor is going off but I can't even hear it, I'm so seduced by these ratings that I go along with them when they say do this not just one hour a night, but two, thus bringing my own skills and talents to bear on the process by which the snowball runs faster and faster down the hill...There are days now when my line of work makes me ashamed, makes me depessed, makes me cry.

    Remember, everything you despise, every evil company, every corrupt politician, every single bad decision that affects life for the worse, has been made by a human being who, because he needed to eat or maybe because he was greedy or maybe because he hadn't used the spark of humanity that rests inside all of us for so long that it had burned out - a human being who chose to do what he knew was not right.

    Each time you see a decision like that made, do not point. Each time you see someone's personal venality or failure or slippage exposed, do not gasp. Make yourself a mental note that if faced with participation in such a decision, or such an exposure, you will try to face it with your Moral Force prominently displayed.

    Great googly-moogly. I got the dry heaves reading this maudlin 1998 Cornell Convocation speech. Those interested can search it out.

    He sets himself forth as someone who graduates early (and by inference smarter than the average bear) and yet lays out this really naive spiel about the line of work in which he is engaged.

    Gee, what year was he this again? 1898? The sensationalistic "New York World" and its "yellow journalism"? Is he rallying against warmongering "New York World" owner William Randolph Hearst? No,far worse, the Clinton/Lewinsky affair!

    I wonder how many laughed when he spoke of his "shame"?

    May the "Moral Force" be with you.

    [dry heaves coming on again...]

    What a drama queen. Yes, this is a man who follows his own advice (NOT!)

    This speech reminds me of Pinch Sulzberger's recent rant at a commencement. Both men are empty lying corrupt idiots with chips on their shoulders.

    And the relevance is...what, exactly?

    I mean, are you just dredging up more muck to throw around or do you have a point?

    Moral force? If he was driven by moral force, he wouldn't be soliciting fans for sex.

    The Orange One pontificates often about said moral force and adores slamming others who do not display the high ethical standards of the Magnificent Olbywan (in his almighty estimation).

    "Each time you see a *decision like that made, do not point. Each time you see *someone's personal venality or failure or slippage exposed, do not gasp. Make yourself a mental note that if faced with *participation in such a *decision, or such an *exposure, you will try to face *it with your Moral Force prominently displayed."

    *Unless, of course, it's a Republican or the latest celebrity pariah of the media to kick around...

    Olby allegedly has been exposing his failure for quite some time to his fangirls who e-mail him at NBC. Poor dears - they thought their idol was a gentleman and a scholar. Why else would he court them via his office e-mail address? That's so romantic. HA!

    Soliciting groupies for sex, how lame
    Now he's exposed like Valerie Plame
    At sex he will fail
    So he'll dump you by email
    Keith's seeking misfortune and flame

    KO's "Moral Force" is a farce
    Thus viewership is quite sparse
    So he hits on a lady
    With tales of Malmedy
    And ends up flat on his arse

    It looks as if Jossip and TVNewser are now on the "E-Mistress" story. The accusing blog has been taken down. Keithus Interruptus indeed.

    She was probably afraid he'd try to sue her or something. I don't think he had a leg to stand on legally which is why he hadn't done anything to stop her before now.

    If he had e-mailed her for 18 months from his corporate account, NBC certainly knows it by now. How stupid is that?

    Really. Is this necessary? How many times have you told your kids "don't swear" and then let off a stream of cuss words at a driver that cut you off? How many times have you encouraged a vacillating non-smoker, "Don't smoke, it's bad for you," amidst lighting a cigarette?

    He started a quasi-relationship with a woman who turned out to be vengeful. He purportedly had e-mail conversations with her, encouraged her to come visit him, had sex with her, ended it--perhaps poorly (we don't really know, she never came forward with THAT e-mail, now, did she?).

    The best you can do is say that he shouldn't have been using his work e-mail to correspond with her (really, many, many people use their work e-mail for personal correspondence). But you don't know what he wrote, you don't know if he said anything truly off-color. You don't know. All you know is that he saw this lady once or twice and dumped her.

    This does not make him any more or less qualified to do his job. It makes him human.

    Actually, soliciting a fan for sex would be wrong in any set of circumstance. While I realize that some of you have loose morals and questionable judgement and therefore find it easy to forgive Olbermann for this indiscretion, he crossed a line he should not have when he solicitied a fan for sex. If you can't see what's wrong with this, then it explains why you think he's Mr. Wonderful.

    Actually, soliciting a fan for sex would be wrong in any set of circumstance.

    Well, isn't this lovely? We still have no corroboration and no proof and yet Brandon here is willing to jump all the way to "solicitation".

    All we have is e-mails of dubious credibility and a statement that cannot be confirmed nor denied and a whole hell of a lot of OlbermannWatch commenters stirring up shit for the sake of doing so.

    I would call you trolls, but that would be insulting to the trolls...

    Curious' defense of the Anointed One is patethic to start but to get it in double dose is sure nausea.

    What it is is typical for the Olbyloons. They believe he's right no matter what he does no matter how wrong he is. Even after he apologized for emails he admitted sending, they still believed he hadn't written them. Hey Anonymous: why don't you send a pretty picture of yourself and see if Olbermann would be interested in having a one-night stand with you? Or is it that you're jealous he chose her instead of you? Green eyed monster got ya there?

    Uncalled for. Anonymous is absolutely accurate in pointing out to you that you've jumped to conclusions without any evidence. I was stating the same. I'm not defending anyone. I'm merely saying you're ready to try and convict someone, and not because he did something clearly wrong but because his tv show irritates you.

    Brandon, I for one have a hard time taking any of your posts seriously when I know you jump right from "A" to "Z" without considering the middle ground. Clearly, your opinions are unsubstantiated on this, and probably on a great many other things you say as well.

    Do I believe this latest spate of allegations? No, I haven't seen enough proof. I do believe that he should contemplate how he conducts his personal relationships. Just a suggestion.

    Go read KB's blog right now. It just got a little more fun. That's all I'm saying. Believe what you want to believe.

    I don't really see the issue here even if the allegations are true (and I do think at least a few are). Even if this weren't Olbermann and some regular Joe, what's the big deal?

    A woman is mad because a person she idolized didn't turn out to like her.

    Can someone please explain to me, in a non-partisan way, why this is so horrible and why people think Olbermann should lose his job over this. Or am I just a womanizer? (Don't answer that)

    Olby....Bangs some broad that he picks up on the internet than dumps her. Looney left says NO BIG DEAL!!!

    Bill O'Reilly....Talks dirty with a broad over the phone. Looney Left says VERY BAD, SHOULD BE THROWN OFF AIR. REAL LOWLIFE.

    We Report. You Decide!

    Double Kool-Aid Latte Standard anyone?

    "Right wing smear merchants target Olbermann"
    (comment from "Michael" Site Administrator, keitholbermann.org in Jossip comments section)

    Right Wing Smears! Right Wing Smears! Get Yer Right Wing Smears Right Here!

    Just where does one go to purchase a Right Wing Smear? To whom? Can I get 'em at Wal-Mart? From Matt Drudge?

    What the hey, I'll buy three more for my ol' buddy Keefy Olbermann!


    (P.S. You should care because Keith Olbermann is This Generations Edward R. Murrow. --keitholbermann.org)

    (P.P.S. Then you should encourage Keith to start smoking again, immediately! --me)

    You're right, Puck. Olbermann should harass someone he has authority over. That's the consevrative..uh traditionalist way to do it.

    Don't break your wrists masturbating to this story, Olbermannwatchers.

    Yeah Abe, it didn't stop Bill Clinton, known conservative masturbator. Just quiz the blue dress from the Gap how it liked being jizzed upon.

    Is the speech where that little vermon, rat and traitor Olbernut had his political awakening.

    Olby....Bangs some broad that he picks up on the internet than dumps her. Looney left says NO BIG DEAL!!!

    Bill O'Reilly....Talks dirty with a broad over the phone. Looney Left says VERY BAD, SHOULD BE THROWN OFF AIR. REAL LOWLIFE.

    1) BOR's indiscretions were caught on tape. KO's accuser offers what amounts to vaporware and innuendo.

    2) What BOR did is something he can be sued over. When you use your authority as a boss over an employee to gain sexual favors, it is a CRIME (sexual misconduct). It is also Sexual Harrassment, which is a civil claim. So far, NOTHING that KO's alleged accuser has provided reaches even the lowest threshold.

    See the difference, nimrod?

    spoken in true Clintonest form.... Assnonymous

    Next thing ass will tell me is this women lived in a trailer park a la Paula Jones.

    woman....oops

    Olby apparently needs a catch phrase for everything (For this relief, much thanks; Good night and good luck). "Ouch" is right.

    He is no Murrow. You see, Murrow actually left the studio to go into the field and report. The only field you'll see Olbermann on is a baseball field. Yada Yada Yada, he reported from Ground Zero. You want to know why? Because he was out of a job at the time and desperate to catch the attention of network executives. Consider those reports from Ground Zero his on-air job audition. This was also during the same time period he issued his famous apology. He was only sorry when he was yet again out of a job and hoping someone else would hire his sorry ass. He's a hypocrite, a liar, and a fraud and is hardly a "modern-day Murrow". Murrow was at least brave enough to interview people from all sides of the politicla spectrum. All Olby can do is bring on parrots to repeat what he's just said.

    And did any of you ever HEAR those tapes of O'Reilly's? No. Of course not. They were neer released. Only the purported "transcripts" that could not be confirmed or denied. Another instance of you people changing the "facts" to suit your purposes. It's very clear that no matter what surfaces about Olbermann you will claim it was faked or that it was no "big deal". But what if this had happend to your sister, or daughter or friend? And no doubt if the same set of circumstances surrounded O'Reilly you'd be begging Fox to fire him for "moral terpitude" reasons. Please, get off your soapboxes, come off of your high horses and realize that this man is not without blame in this situation. What exactly would be proof enough for you? Hell, half of you still think the emails that Lloyd Grove published weren't written by him after he APOLOGIZED for writing them. I'd say you were all a bunch of idiots but that is an insult to idiots.

    Why does KO always have to steal someone else's line (ANY Shakespeare quote, Murrow's signoff, KOS's news and talking points)? Has he got an original bone in his body?

    Scott..........no!

    Yes Scott he doesn't. Rumor has it that when he bangs a groupie he picks up off the internet. He doesn't use his mini-me. Keith turns off the lights and straps on his Harry Reams model fake penis he's kept since his school days..........

    I just couldn't let the original bone comment roll by.

    Olbywan, the moral force is not with you (allegedly).

    You guys jealous that KO has actually touched a vagina? Other than your own I mean.

    For this relief, much thanks. Good line. Bill Clinton had a post-coitus line for Juanita Broaddrick. It was " Go put some ice on that" after he bit her lip during the rape.

    Let us not forget that someone wanted to PURCHASE the "O'Reilly Tapes" and probably the loofah, falafels, soapy water, well heck, any or all of the associated stuff.

    Of course, that potential buyer is none other than that well-known buyer of sports ephemera and memorabilia, KEITH OLBERMANN!

    Drive up that ebay bidding boys, make Merkle923 pay through the nose!

    Nimrod was a mighty hunter, a king and a great-grandson of Noah (you know, the Ark thing).

    Oh I get it, some teen-ager years ago decides that since the word has 'rod' in it, it must be a euphemism for 'penis.' Nyuk-yuk-yuk-yuk...

    Hey! I wonder after Keith bangs a broad that he gets off the internet. When he gets home does he dance around his place to "old time rock and roll" in front of his Tom Cruise poster?

    I like that line "15 year-old in a 47 year-old body."

    Since Abe used the line Keith actually touched a vagina. Should this then be more along the lines of the Tom Cruise (not really) classic "Losin' it?"

    This could explain the Tom Cruise fixation.

    KK's "smooth" line after sex is "For this relief, much thanks". Which makes you wonder, what "smooth" line does Keith use before the "act"? I think I found the answer: (from the May 9 MSLSD transcript):


    OLBERMANN: . . . here kitty, kitty, kitty... Here kitty, kitty, kitty. . .

    Let's see, an image is coming to my mind . . . a faux news character who is pompous, obsessively jealous of his vastly superior competition, extremely sensitive to criticism, whose ratings are continually abysmal and spouts lines he thinks are witty and erudite but are actually stupid, boring and reflect his own deep seated insecurities . . . yes, I think it's becoming clearer now, it's . . . Ted Baxter!!! (What did you think I was going to say, Keith Olbermann? Well, on second thought, now that I think about it . . .)
