As Islamo-Fascists fire rockets into Israel as part of their plan to wipe Israel off the face of the map, Keith Olbermann is thousands of miles away from the front lines entertaining his own band of shock troops - those psuedo-journalists who label themselves "TV Critics" - with a "hilarious" Nazi salute, hoping to equate the trouncing he is getting in the cable news ratings race with a genocide that saw the murder of 12 million people including more than 6 million Jews.
UPDATE: J$ orders up a healthy does of KO Hypocrisy on his effectively moot Anti-Nazi Metaphor Campaign
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)
UPDATE: KO Attacks Olbermann Watch (again!). Aaron Barnhart, TV Critic for the Kansas City Star and media blogger at TVBarn, has a run down of his exchange with Olbermann at the new infamous Pasadena Presser. Turns out some of the KO quotes that made it into the AP and other reports were actually KO's response to Barnhart's questions based on Olbermann Watch and our report on KO's 100th Attack on Bill O'Reilly:
QUESTION: Keith, to follow up on that. Right in front of you. When you made the Bill O'Reilly "the Worst Person in the World" for the hundredth time, I got an e-mail from a guy who runs a blog called "Olbermann Watch," pointing out this milestone. Do you worry about the blogosphere? Do you pay attention to bloggers? Do you worry that they might take something that you say and extract some sort of revenge, the way they did with Dan Rather?
KEITH OLBERMANN: There's, I guess, a risk for all of us -- and by all of us, I mean everybody in the world -- that the blogosphere is going to take revenge...People are devoting a lot of time, a lot of money, a lot of energy, and not necessarily getting any results in terms of readership...For every blog that there might be somebody criticizing me, of that one in particular, is the one I know of, there's another one or two other ones where they're desperately and unfairly favorable to me. So if you take it in the whole context, I don't really worry about it...
[I edited the reply to focus on the OlbyWatch-centric portion, you can read the full quote here]. Aaron loves comments so feel free to ask him what it was like being front and center for KO's Nazi salute!!!
UPDATE: Keith Olbermann responds to Ailes in a letter to Romenesko which attacks O'Reilly over the Malmedy kerfluffle while citing that bastion of journalistic reknown - CrooksandLiars.com!

Title: No line at Fox News
Posted By: Jim Romenesko
From KEITH OLBERMANN: Subject -- Response to Ailes. "Over the line?" Where was Roger Ailes when...
HIGHLIGHT: Drunk with KO has had one too many tonight, putting forward the "photoshop" defense for the Olby Nazi Salute. A commenter sums it up nicely "Getty Images. Since when do they have a reputation for photoshopping? Go to broadcast & cable. The article is there that mentions the Nazi Salute. Are you people this desperate or this stupid?"
HIGHLIGHT: The Kossack Are Coming! Daily Kos linked to Olbermann Watch (twice) and called clear-thinking OlbyWatch readers "right wing rank and file morons" who are "frothing at the mouth to destroy a man's career". Newsflash KosLoons! Olbermann is going a fine job of destroying his career on his own. He certainly doesn't need any help from us.
HIGHLIGHT: Ace of Spades HQ "Top Ten Ways In Which Keith Olbermann Alleges Bill O'Reilly Is Just Like Hitler": "#10 - Hitler's greatest crime was oppressing people with strong ratings in key demos." You read the rest of this very funny post here
HIGHLIGHT: TVNewser is heard from, including a link to Olbermann Watch. I have a question: did everyone who emailed him FORGET TO TURN OFF THE CAPS KEY??? or is he just doing that for effect? What I liked even better was the TVN Caption Contest where readers were asked to provide a caption to Olbermann holding the O'Reilly mask over his face. Brian did not appreciate the humor behind some of the submissions - some "were just plain mean, and not all that funny". Here are a few of my favorites:
"Olbermann demonstrates his position at 8pm."
"Wow...so this is what it's like to have people watch you."
"I'm just getting started -- wait until you see my Nazi salute!"
"Maybe, just maybe, if I wear this mask, my 8pm show can beat O'Reilly's 4am repeat."
"For my next trick, I will pull ratings out of the back of Bill O'Reilly's picture."
"Dan Abrams unveils new plan to trick viewers into watching MSNBC."
"Olbermann fades into the shadows..."
