    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    July 28, 2006
    MSM KO Bandwagon #93: KO Serves up mud and liberal TV Critics Say "Yum"

    This time it's Daily News staff writer Helen Kennedy taking a big bite out of the MNSBC PR sandwich. Kennedy provide a textbook example of the well-documented anti-Fox, pro-Liberal, pro-KO bias of most members of the TV Critics Association.

    In this piece, every Olbermann attack line is played straight and his characterizations of O'Reilly taken as received wisdom. Anyone who has followed Olbermann's increasingly desperate antics knows that Olbermann originally sought out a feud in the hope of generating interest in himself and his show and has stated publicly that he believes, despite ample evidence to the contrary, that his ratings increase when he attacks O'Reilly. After a few ill-advised retorts, O'Reilly has largely ignored Olbermann. In other words, Olbermann is constantly pitching the "feud" story to the media which is more than happy to oblige Olbermann and his liberal agenda. Today, Kennedy opens wide for Keith.

    In this piece, the feud is portrayed as harmless and amusing ("long-running feud", "rumpus", "fun", "comic relief".) and not only mutual but something sought out by O'Reilly (the complete opposite of the case). When Olbermann attacks O'Reilly its all positive: "gleefully taunting", "snarky", "Ivy League", "blithely". Words associate with O'Reilly in the article are are all negative ""self-regarding", "Worst Person in the World", "embarrassing details", "the Big Giant Head". Even O'Reilly's occasional responses are described using negative language - "O'Reilly frequently fails to ignore".

    It's no surprise that when she mentions Olbermann Watch this blog is falsely described as a gathering of "O'Reilly fans" who "trash" Olbermann's "every utterance". As Olbermann Watch readers know this is a site ABOUT Olbermann not O'Reilly; the only reason O'Reilly gets mentioned at all is because Olbermann is constantly raising the subject and doing so by making false or misleading statements. Poking holes in Keith's liberal propaganda does not make one an O'Reilly fan but the label does serve Kennedy's goal of dismissing all criticism of her beloved Keith.

    The dog that is once again not barking is contained in this passage:

    [O'Reilly's] called Olbermann - whose name he never says on the air - a "smear merchant," complains about MSNBC's "cheap shots" and has warned NBC brass that he would "go into greater detail about the problems besetting that network" unless Olbermann is reined in.

    To date, not a single TV critic has bothered to explore whether Olbermann's justification for his tasteless Nazi Salute - that O'Reilly had "defended Nazis" and called American victims of a Nazi atrocity "war criminals" - is true (hint: it is not). Instead they have done what Kennedy does here: parroted Olbermann's "when do you stop beating your wife" accusations, inserted an an old quote taken out of context, tried to make it look responsive to Olbermann's latest claims and painted O'Reilly as defensive and evasive (and therefore "guilty").

    If Kennedy was an honest journalist instead of an pro-KO, anti-Fox, liberal she would have researched Olbermann's "defending Nazis" claim, discovered that it was false and said so herself.

    Funny, Helen Kennedy drinks the Cool-aid. It is so funny that people assume because Olbermann draws such ire that those who come here are O'Reilly fans. I am no big fan of O'Reilly, but the Olby is such a disgrace that it is good to come here and see that others can point out his lies.

    Further, Olby is such a creep that his anger has to be driven by something. . . I don't know what, but he a freak, insane, something.

    Anyway, mkennedy at nydailynews dot com should have to answer questions as to why she blew this story so badly.

    Biggie- so who do listen to?

    I used to watch Olbermann until right after the 2004 elections. That's when he really went off the rails. The guests were more balanced and he wasn't as crazy then . . . The time slots were different, too.

    I watched Hardball for a long time---till he went unhinged . . .

    No, given the choice of OB or O'Reilly I WATCH O'Reilly. I am no fan. His radio show sucks (I check it out from time to time. . . he goes on and on seeing things "in the middle".

    O'Reilly's crusade against wicked judges is a good thing, his push for Jessica's law is good. Politcally, he's just mush.

    So, I don't see it as a either or proposition anyway. Lots of nights I don't watch either. However, Olbermann is luch a loon I check out this site (along with the blogs I read) to see what he's done lately. I got tired of catching one segment a month and sending him an email calling him an biased idiot.

    I was never lucky enough to get a "go kill yourself" reply though.

    That's interesting because I launched this site in the days after the 2004 election because Olbermann was going off the deep end!

    Well Cox

    I am glad you did. I didn't discover it until recently, but I remember in Decemeber we has doing Ohio over fraud pieces . . . he also got worse in terms of sanity.

    He was bad before, but I remember during the Swift Boat stuff he'd load up his guest with those who would claim that no one of the swifites were on the boat, but that was not true.

    However, O'Reilly didn't give the swifites any credibility either. Hannity and Colmes did a godo job. Matthews pretty much haranged Michelle Malkin off the air. He didn't understand what the term "self inflicedted wound" meant.

    Anyway, it was not until then that I even read blogs . . . I am sure glad this one is here.

    You watch the show so I don't have to. You are making quite the sacrifice.

    Also, the media is supposed to be a watchdog on the government. But, the media has used to lean left has gone further left, and only the blog like you, Malkin, PowerLine, Captain's Qaurters, Protein Wisdom, etc. are watching the media.

    I crack up on the leftie blogs. Maybe that is hwat we conservatives sounded like in 1993 when single payer health care was coming and Clinton raised taxes, retroacvtively and all the stuff that lead the republican takeover in 1995.

    Anyway, good job. I wish I had found this site sooner . . . never quit . . . until Keith quits or is fired or gets his mental illnees treated
