Oliver Burkemen of the UK's infamous left-wing rag, The Guardian, chews up a few pages from the Media Matters playbook, adds a dash of hyerbole and produces a prototypical KO-BOR "feud" piece where everything from Olbermann is taken as gospel whike O'Reilly and FNC take it on the chin at every turn.
Here are a few of Burkemen's whoppers..
The Olbermann Nazi Salute provoked a "furious response"from Fox's chairman, Roger Ailes.
[not a single report from TCA described Ailes's reply to a question on Olbermann as anything other that matter-of-fact]
O'Reilly "has a habit" of telling guest to shut up.
[I don't have the count but I believe this has happened about three or four times in ten years]
O'Reilly extended an "open invitation" for al Qaede to attack San Francisco
[O'Reilly said if the City government was not willing to allowing military recruiting in San Francisco they should not expect help from the military if they are attacked by terrorists]
Olbermann is a "professional ironist"
[is that what he is?]
"Legal documents" included a transcript of a telephone call O'Reilly had made
[unsubstantiated accusations, but here taken at face value]
The attacks on O'Reilly have caused "detectible surges" in KO's ratings.
[KO's ratings have been on a straight line down since the Winter Olympics ended]
There is an "unmistakeable rightwing bias" in FNC's coverage
[while the politcal talk shows lean right, studies have consistantly found FNC news coverage is among the most objective coverage in the U.S.]
O'Reilly and Ailes are "unable to control their tempers"
[O'Reilly does have a temper, there has never been any indication he is unable to control it and lumping in Ailes based on a reaction he did not have to a question at TCA is aburd]
