    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    July 28, 2006
    Olbermann on CBS Late Late Show

    Keith joins Craig Ferguson on the Late Late Show (that's after Letterman on CBS). Keith and Craig may have loads to talk about; when Ferguson first began working the UK Comedy Circuit in the nineties he went by the name Bing Hitler

    Once again, I am ponying up a free copy of Keith Olbermann's new book (seriously) to the OlbyWatch Reader who can guess how many times Olbermann will say "O'Reilly" during his appearance. I open the bidding at 8.


    KO Review

    Dressed like the professor on Gillians Island, Keith was once again lost at sea on a late night talk show. Like Leno, lot's of "Really's?" and "Rights" from Ferguson in response to Keith's "jokes"... Mel Gibson was arrested he said "dont' blame me, Jesus was driving (thud), "fundamentalists don't believe in gravity" (clank) about al Qaeda appearing in Pet Shop Boys videos (clunk).

    In fairness to Keith his was much more relaxed (perhaps because he was the second guest on the Late, Late show, on past one in the morning and few were watching). He did get off a few good lines including one about bringing "reality TV" concepts to the voting process (vote another candidate off each week) but, once again, rambled on so long that they had to edit down the segment and go straight to the hard break at the end of the show.

    KO Makes Olbermann Watch reference

    Earlier in the week, we wrote on Olbermann's appearance on Leno:

    KO swung and missed with "got out here in time for the freeways to melt"

    KO swung again and missed with "Al Gore was wrong that global warming would take 10 years - more like 10 minutes"
KO was caught looking on "forecast tomorrow, 60% fog in the morning, 60% the four horseman of the apocalypse"

    When the Pet Shop Boy/al Qaeda joke fell flat KO said:

    I tried to go culture and...a swing and a miss

    NOTE TO KEITH: Keep reading OlbyWatch. We love having you here!

    Keith Largely Passes on O'Reilly

    We have a winner! In a shocker (to everyone but Steve), Olbermann failed to utter the name "Bill O'Reilly" once during the entire show confining himself to the occasional pronoun as in "He's an idiot". There were two taped mentions so those don't count which means SteveMG is the "lucky" winner of KO's new book!!! Congratulations.

    Reeling from the pressure brought to bear by Olbermann Watch, KO steered clear of any Nazi references, this time tossing the old "Coit Tower" canard for the uninitiated and perplexed audience.

    KO: there was a bill passed by the City Council of San Francisco that said you can't have - a voluntary thing - you're not supposed to have military recruiters on high school campuses in San Francisco. A voluntary thing but you know we just don't what you to do that. You want to send 'em across the street that's great but not on the campus. It adds something like you can get a better grade if you sign up for the military. His response to that was to say "Well OK al Qaeda if you want to attack anybody in the United States we're going to defend every place but San Francisco". Isn't that a little bit of an over reaction to...? (nervous laughter).

    Of course, Keith is lying. What KO failed to mention is that while the resolution that passed was a "sense of the city" resolution, what O'Reilly was reacting to was the ongoing effort to BAN military recruiting on ALL high school and college campuses in San Francisco - not some "voluntary" program. KO also failed to mention that the "College Not Combat" organization is yet another front group for those lovable lugs, the international communists, who have been drafting resolutions for school boards and city council across the United States as part of its master plan to totally demilitarize the United States. The stated goal of those behind the College Not Combat initiative is to ban campus military recruiting and that they pushed the City Council resolution in San Francisco (they have other such resolutions in motion in Seattle and elsewhere) as part of a step by step "consciousness raising" process (the standard left-wing tactic) akin to boiling a frog. This point is even mentioned in the San Francisco Chronicle article to which Media Matters linked in their piece.

    By the way, I am not using the term "communists" here as hyperbole. These folks really are part of the alive but barely kicking international communist movement which is organized around International A.N.S.W.E.R. yet another front group, but good luck trying to get them to admit that as they know that if Americans really understood who they are, what they believe and what they are attempting to implement here and around the world they would be rejected out-of-hand by Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike.

    According to George Soros Media Matters for America, O'Reilly said:

    Hey, you know, if you want to ban military recruiting, fine, but I'm not going to give you another nickel of federal money. You know, if I'm the president of the United States, I walk right into Union Square, I set up my little presidential podium, and I say, "Listen, citizens of San Francisco, if you vote against military recruiting, you're not going to get another nickel in federal funds. Fine. You want to be your own country? Go right ahead. And if Al Qaeda comes in here and blows you up, we're not going to do anything about it. We're going to say, look, every other place in America is off limits to you, except San Francisco. You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead.

    I do not think it was appropriate to for O'Reilly to go so far as to say "You want to blow up the Coit Tower? Go ahead." But he was clearly not advocating that. He was using hyperbole wrapped in a hypothetical inside an outburst to make a point - that San Francisco was trying to have it both ways - they want to ban military recruiting (the "College Not Combat" initiative "discouraged" military recruiting but, as noted above, was drafted as a first step towards a ban) but they want to be protected by the same military they disavow. O'Reilly was laying out the logical consequences of the international communist agenda - that if we have no military recruiting we will have no soldiers and there will not be anyone to protect San Francisco and that will mean open season on U.S. citizens not just in San Francisco but around the world and so the actions of the City Council in San Francisco is the first step in putting all Americans at risk. As O'Reilly is one of them he is upset about it. His point was that it was totally irresponsible for elected officials to be actively in engaged in efforts to undermine the U.S. military during a time of war (or ever, for that matter) and that if they were successful those chickens would come home to roost. What he expressed was the frustration that those chickens are more likely to come to roost where he lives (New York) than San Francisco.

    San Francisco did not ban military recruiting on college campus because, under current law, had they done so they would lose federal funding for their colleges. In other words, they want to disavow the U.S. military, they want to deter students from joining the military, but they still want all the money.

    BTW, you can look for efforts from the international communists to de-couple federal dollars from military recruiting on college campuses once they have gotten enough local governments to go along with their international communist agenda.

    KO Trivia

    We got a little KO trivia - that he interviewed for the job to replace Pat Sajak on the CBS Late Show, that he has a unibrow and shaves in between his eyebrows. Also, and KO fans know this, but he is doing a voiceover on Family Guy during the fall season.

    KO Admits Supporting Al Gore

    Ferguson asked "What side do you dress on...politically?"

    And we got the usual "I've been accused of being a liberal" drivel and then the tired "I did 218 shows about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky and no one accused me of being a liberal then" without mentioning that he threw a hissy fit in a speech at Cornell revealing publicly that he had quit his job for "moral" reasons (i.e., he quit in protest over reporting on the Clinton Sex Scandal, reporting that he now claims shows his "independent" bona fides).

    KO continued "It's very interesting how you can be pigeon-holed . I like to think of myself politically as 'correct'. All those Al Gore bumper stickers, they weren't a good investment but..

    And then we got the big lie...

    KO: I tried...I try to not the degree you can be neutral now a days...for instance, I don't vote.

    Ferguson: You don't vote at all?

    KO: I don't vote because I don't think I should have a rooting interest in the outcome of an election.

    Ferguson: Isn't it your duty as a citizen to vote?

    KO: ...If everybody who's in the news stayed away from the ballot box I don't think we'd have a significant decline, people would still have that bias that's perceived one way or another but you could say "well I didn't vote...I don't contribute...I'm try to stay out of it to the degree that I can. I don't have a rooting interest other than what happens to the country.

    Olbermann Advocates Poll Tax

    Just days after President Bush reauthorized the Voting Rigths Acts of 1965 for another 25 years, Keith Olbermann is pining for the good old days of the Poll Tax:

    KO: Australia, if you don't vote you get fined and I mean it's like eleven dollars or something but you have to get a receipt from the voting booth and you mail that in with your tax return or they send you a bill...we could translate that here..and as soon as you get that receipt you get twenty five dollars off your tax return...

    One can only wonder what civil rights leaders might think of Keith's plan for a regressive "poll fine" which would only be refunded to tax payers who voted. Apparently Keith did not get the memo that a large chunk of the Democratic base doesn't pay taxes and that quite a few of those are African Americans so that the effect of his "plan" is to revive the Jim Crow laws under a new guise. Talk about "open mouth, insert eyebrow". Jeez, how dumb can you be?

    I'm gonna guess 6. I really need that book. I have a table where one leg is shorter than the others. KO's book would be very useful there.

    I'm going with 10.

    I'm going with 10.

    CAn't wait.......

    You will have your choice of getting the hardcover in September or there copies of the paperback at some future date. Choose wisely, according to industry sources, the hardcover will be printed on double-ply but the paperback only on single-ply.



    It's telling that when Bill O'Reilly mentions a " notorious smear merchant " everyone knows who he's talking about.

    Which of Keith's appearances will end up being lamer, on Leno or Ferguson? We shall see.

    I just realized that with anonymous guesses I need a way to validate any winner we might have. The best solution I have is that I will check the IP address of the winning comment so keep in mind that if you win you will need to send me an email with your IP address. When I get a match I will send the book.

    If I win, can I get some "Factor Gear" instead?

    I'll go with 4.

    You can trade 100 copies of Olbermann's book for one "Factor Gear" hat.

    Well Leno is prime time, front and center so you have to be more careful IMO. Though I don't know much about Ferguson politics wise (I think he's like Conan/Kimmell - they don't care) but I think he will be more edgy (so to say) since Ferguson doesn't get near as many viewers, more of his fans are likely to watch.

    I think I will go with 9.

    4 times.


    He'll say "The Giant Head" or some other nickname.

    If I win, I'll donate the copy to the Ezra Pounding Reading Room at St. Elizabeth's Hospital.


    KO will say O'Reilly 3 times, and use terms such as the giant head 4 times.

    seven times. I donate my book to Nonfactor if I win, with the following inscription to be written on my behalf:

    "Be as careful of the books you read, as of the company you keep, for your habits and character will be as much influenced by the former as the latter."
    -- Edwin Paxton Hood

    As for Olby, the "forthisrelief" blog has to be destroying him. Look at these doozies:

    KarmaBites1: [Olbermann] said the most egotistical and strangest thing I've ever heard after I faked an orgasm:

    "This is the finger I use to write the show."

    Blech! What a maroon! I also love this one:

    Jane said...
    He was using those little blue pills when he was with me and he still had problems.

    So much for laughing at Rush's viagra use. But my personal favorite remains:

    "We got set-up by mutual friends. He blamed his sexual dysfunction on an ice incident."

    Ha hahahahaha Bwahahahahaha

    Now he has to go on TV knowing that that site has 50,000+ hits! He has to go back to the office knowing that everyone reads that blog! Oh the horror! The HORROR!

    I will say...11

    Did anyone say 13?

    You can keep the book I'll take some "no spin golf balls insted.

    Did anyone say 13?

    You can keep the book I'll take some "no spin golf balls insted".

    Pucky...i bet you would.

    Of the 200 people who watch the Late Late Show, 190 of them had to be asking themselves: "Who the hell is this Odorman dude?"

    Of the 200 people who watch the Late Late Show, 190 of them had to be asking themselves: "Who the hell is this Odorman dude?"

    Yeah, but of those 10 that care, I bet they're all in the 25-54 demo. So there. (sarcasm intended.)

    I was wondering when Keith was gonna come out with the NBC-sponsored Countdown gear: Iron Cross with the Countdown logo... a swastika with Keith's face emblazoned... Countdown easy-bake oven... Keith "Nazi Salute" Bobblehead doll...

    Dude you are nothing but a right wing junkie. Anyone who thinks Bill O Reilly and Fox are "Fair and Balanced" is probably the most unfair and unbalance person in the world.

    You should go suck O'Reilly's ****..Oh wait a minute, it could be O'reilly himself who is behing the website...hiding behind like an a******

    Fox News is less conservative than the other networks are liberal.

    Leftists hate Fox News, the number 1 cable news network, because their conservative hosts and guests aren't tokens thrown into the mix with token soundbites. Oh, and O'Reilly has opposing views on his show. Who does Olbermann have on? His yes men and women who dare not depart from the agreed upon terms of the hour of spin.

    I almost spit out my drink when I heard KTO come out and call O'Reilly an "idiot". I guess it takes one to know one. He didn't even give a good explanation as to why he deems BO an "idiot", either. He should just come out and say that it's because his good buddy Al Franken told him so.

    - P.S. The only way I can tolerate Olbie is when I'm inebriated, LOL!!!

    I'm an idiot.

    SteveMG is the "lucky" winner of KO's new book!!! Congratulations

    Some men because giants of industry. Others conquer or discover new worlds. Still others become great scientists, curing the sick and lessening the pain of others or revealing new insight of how the world works.

    And some - a tiny few - are able to get inside the mind of one Keith Olbermann.

    That's me.

    Great. Boy are my parents proud.

    If I were an animal, they'd shoot me.

    As I said, donate the book here:

    Appropriate place for it, I think.


    because giants of industry

    Oy. It's "become" idiot, not "because".

    Maybe I'm qualified for the damned book after all.


    proof he reads this site because he said "swing and a miss"? Are you serious? Talk about an elevated sense of importance from Mr. Cox.

    KO is the king of the elevated sense of importance. Or is it impotence?

    The appearance was less dreadful, precisely because keith was in his element -- Total viewers 300,000 demo viewers 150,000.

    His outfit, made him look like a waddling duck. Someone should tell Keith to wear socks and avoid white pants. Pear-shaped people accentuate their womanly hips when in white. Keith managed to waddle more noticeably as well. He seemed to sweat less, for that relief much thanks.


    It is wholly irresponsible to donate a book like that to an insane asylum. Are you trying to add fuel to the fire? I am also concerned that you are too involved with your subject. Haven't you seen those horror movies, where the hunter gets inside the head of the psycho and soon finds himself becoming what he loathes?

    I hope they keep the book away from OREILLYSUCKS, you know how he goes nutso with those damned crayons of his...oops, didn't realize they still got ORS in restraints.

    Are you trying to add fuel to the fire?

    My purpose was entirely noble.

    My hope is that after reading the book, the residents would feel much better about themselves.

    E.g, "Okay, I may think I'm Napoleon Bonaparte, but at least I'm not as batty as this loon."



    The book is due out in September so I am willing to let you exchange your prize for your choice of Factor Gear baseball caps.;jsessionid=23EB7BF95DB5B5EC09755A07BDD636CE?dispid3=103

    The book is due out in September so I am willing to let you exchange your prize for your choice of Factor Gear baseball caps.

    Thanks for that offer.

    If I can, I'd like to substitute from you a donation to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society. They help out, among other things, those wounded over in Iraq and Afghanistan. They have a Combat Casualty Campaign that provides support for our heroes.

    and then select "Make a Gift" and then the "Combat Casualty Assistance" link (Direct Link to Fund Here)

    If you can make it in memory of my dad: Joseph C. Galbraith, that would be special. He was a Marine (served us in two wars: Korea and Vietnam).

    Whatever amount you think is appropriate is fine. Five bucks or ten would be great.



    I'll support "College not Combat" as soon as we kill all the Madrasa Murderers, Kommunist Killers, Socialist Slaughterers, Totalitarian Terrorists,Suicide Sleeper Sells,etc.

    KO would have to take BO out of context or it wouldn't make BO seem thuggish. World peace is very sweet thought but everybody has to be on the same page or it becomes genocidal,suicidal,homicidal.

    Steve - OK, I will make a donation as requested.

    NF wrote - "proof he reads this site because he said "swing and a miss"? Are you serious? Talk about an elevated sense of importance from Mr. Cox."

    As usual, NF demonsrtating his debating prowess by putting words into people's mouth and then knocking down the strawman he has created. Try using my ACTUAL words next time...

    I did not say that the "swing and a miss" line was PROOF that Olbermann reads this site. I already KNOW he reads this site. Besides the fact that I know people who work at MSNBC have told me that he reads the site and that we have tracked IP's from MSNBC-Secaucus hitting our server he has talked about OW in the press many times. You would know it to if you read his comments about this site in The Hardford Courtant, The New York Observer, Kansas City Star, look at the transcripts from the TCA event in Pasadena last week, his attack of me on the radio in Washington, and so on.

    He has lifted copy from this site. He (or one of his producers) have lifted audio from this site.

    Does it really surprise anyone (other than the belligerantly obtuse NF) that the obsessive Keith would read our review of his Leno appearance?

    That NonFactor isn't in on the joke is hardly a surprise.

    Steve - OK, I will make a donation as requested.

    Thanks. It's a good charity; they do great work.

    I'm pretty sure I've used this exact same line on you many times before, thanks for remembering, but sadly it doesn't apply here. You were implying that Olbermann read this site, and the proof you offered in this post was that he said "swing and a miss." That's not a straw man. I remember the audio discussion. To johnny dollar it was definite proof that Olbermann not only reads this site, but he steals material off of it without giving any credit. I had to point out to him that A) it could have been one of his producers and B) they might have gotten the evidence from somewhere else. And to this day dollar hasn't given any evidence that Countdown used the exact same audio clip from this site (Oh, and he could very well read this site, I don't care. If his producers or he personally took an audio clip from this site I don't care, just show me some evidence and you'll sound a bit more sane).

    And on topic, you have Jim Crowe laws severely confused with compulsory voting. The Jim Crowe laws did everything they could to restrict a certain sect of people from voting (blacks) while mandatory voting encourages voting among all sects. But you are right about something; he did advocate compulsory voting which is a more conservative topic. I guess this must mean that he isn't as big a liberal as you might have thought by just watching an hour of his show each night.

    The Jim Crowe laws did everything they could to restrict a certain sect of people from voting (blacks)

    Not to be too pedantic, but they were Jim Crow (no "e") laws. And they had nothing to do with voting. Jim Crow laws barred black Americans from equal access to public places such as hotels or restaurants or theaters.

    Now there were poll taxes and other obstacles (literacy tests, et cetera) that black Americans had to face in order to vote. But those were not, as I understand them, considered Jim Crow laws.


    I always lumped all segregation issues into the Jim Crow family. The laws themself were about segregation, but also dealt with voting. De jure and de facto segregation bleed over into voting as well (De jure wasn't a Jim Crow law, but still refered to as Jim Crow), and I always thought Grandfather clauses and literacy tests were written into law in Georgia and Florida~Jim Crow.

    The point being Cox's attempt to equate compulsory voting to Jim Crow isn't valid.
