    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    July 23, 2006
    Olbermann's Nazi Salute

    NAMEAs 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: Roger Ailes is defending O'Reilly, slamming Keith - Associated Press, Broadcasting & Cable

    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..."

    HIGHLIGHT: FNC's Ailes Responds To Olbermann and Olbermann responds to Ailes (by attacking O'Reilly)

    Imagine the uproar if Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck, or any other conservative pundit dared to make a 'joke' like this in public. They wouldn't, first of all, because it is cowardly and insensitive. Regardless, the calls for resignations/firings would be immediate.

    Little has been made of the Nazi salute, probably because the AP article conveniently left it out, and TVNewser has strategically chosen to ignore this gaffe by the kid's hero.

    I guess the prediction about Keith imploding has come true, because it is beyond anyone's imagination that a cable news anchor would make a Nazi salute in public while mocking his competitor.

    This is truly disgusting.

    Didn't that John Layfield/Bradshaw (the wrestler) get fired from CNBC for doing some sort of a Nazi salute a few years ago?

    So I'm SURE NBC will do the same in this case, just as sure as I am that the Easter Bunny will be by next spring!

    Great! Great! point Missy. If this was baseball you would get "Play of The Day!"

    Oh wait I have to steal the libs comeback. "Well you know he does show on the (how do you spell it in libspeak?) Faux News."

    Beat you to it Non!

    Oh wait I have to steal the libs comeback. "Well you know he does show up on the sat morn.(how do you spell it in libspeak?) Faux News."

    Beat you to it Non!

    Wait, John, Robert.

    Didn't Keith make Glenn Beck or somebody worst person for making a Nazi reference a week or so ago?

    Oh! Oh! Is it a double standard "The Rock" smells cookin'?

    Hey maybe Keith could join with Ted Danson and they can do a blackface skit at the next meeting.

    It seems Krazy Keith is calling Bill O'Reilly out. Everytime Olby looked at O'Reilly, O'Reilly " looked down" ( sheepishly, we are to presume, out of fear). The funny face mask on a stick. The Nazi salute. Keith is desperately trying inject some fresh fire into the one-sided feud. Feud equals ratings for comedian-Keith. O'Reilly shouldn't bite. And he won't.

    Thanks Robert!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now get that pic to Drudge!!!!!!!!!!

    Puck,

    You are more than welcome to tip Drudge to the photo...

    Scroll down the right-hand side of his site to submit a tip:
    http://www.drudgereport.com/

    Note that Olby also made the preposterous claim that his email account was hacked, suggesting it might have been the eeeevil Fox News that did it. Sounds like he's REALLY worried about what else might trickle down to Lloyd Grove.

    Thanks Robert Done! Just as a side note if it means anything. In the AP photo on the Myway article. Olby is holding the stick with right hand. So somewhere he did switch.

    Title: Far-Left Keith Olbermann cries for attention on Television Critics Meeting @ AmericasNewsToday.Org

    America's News Today:
    "He never got within 20 feet of me," Olbermann told the Television Critics Association's summer meeting Saturday. "Every time I looked up, he would suddenly look down (yup, and the moon is made of cheese)." -- "He was staring over at me (I think this is called "obsession"!)." --

    AmericasNewsToday.Org:

    During his "Countdown" show on MSNBC, Olbermann regularly smears O'Reilly, whose "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox is #1 in the cable TV news ratings. Olbermann generally runs fifth in the same time slot.

    The "kool-aid drinker" host, Keith Olbermann said his phone number has been distributed at Fox and his e-mail hacked into. (hello, hello, obsession anybody?)

    Olbermann opened his session by whipping out a mask of O'Reilly —

    Bill O'Reilly haunts Opie's wet dreams. This is the stuff of a Harlequin romance.

    Gee, ain't unrequited love grand?

    O'Reilly couldn't have paid for this kind of shit.
    Hilarious! Olbermann, you're a bona fide schmuck.

    Olby makes his lovers wear the O'Reilly mask.

    TVNewser continues to ignore this.

    Hmm, classy.

    Desperate rating-seeking men do desperate-rating things (okay, it needs work).

    I guess Mr. Olbermann will have John Dean on his show to discuss this controversy.

    Something about the "Orwellian backlash against my attempt at good-natured humor".

    SMG

    KO says in 1977 he was told he had no place in this business if he didn't change his style.

    Yes, he must take great pride in coming in last place.

    What a burnout.

    Olbermann's plan:

    Step 1. Copy Howard Stern

    Step 2. Fail miserably

    Step 3. Lie, spin, cheat in attempt to keep job

    Step 4. Repeat steps 1 - 3

    Step 5. Orally gratify Dan Abrams, lose job anyway, start using crack.

    Someone should tell Keith that he is not an innovator like Stern, and he is immensely less capable. When he tries to pull Stern's antics, he looks like a complete fool. Even Stern looked like a jerk when he attacked his imitators.

    Is Dan Abrams a supporter of this insanity? Is he really so stupid as to think it a good idea? Abrams should cringe when he sees crap like this.

    Do we need anymore proof that Keith Olbermann is a worthless sack of shit who has completely lost his mind. Question: Which is he worse at? Being a human being or being a broadcaster? Oh, and I'm sure O'Reilly kept looking down whenever dumbass looked his way. Keep digging that hole deeper, MSNBC.

    Opie is clueless. Did ANYONE actually laugh when he did this?

    Note to Keith:
    With the exception of your fervent MSM Kool-aid drinkers, any laughter is being directed AT YOU, NOT WITH YOU. Now go back under your desk and contemplate that little heapin' helpin' of paranoia.

    Keith, the reason Bill didn't look at you is because he didn't recognize you without Craig Crawford's thong on your head.

    I do believe Herr Olbermann is metamorphosizing into the character "Frank" from the movie "Blue Velvet."

    I can see him screaming "don't look at me," then taking a whiff of helium and yelling "Mommy!"

    Just read the parts where Frank does his thing and imagine Olbermann in the role:

    http://www.lynchnet.com/bv/bvscript.html

    I like the AP story. "Olbermann has named O'Reilly worst person at least 15 times."

    Does it come as any surprise they can't count at AP?

    And that he didn't look at me crack. Did I not get a High School Flashback? This comming from a guy who thinks he is the next Edward R. Murrow?

    What a frikin' putz!

    Too soon? Talk about false outrage by the conservatives on this site.

    "Sich Heil" salutes are humorous only in a Mel Brooks production. Way to fall on your fat arse, Olby. Good timing, as Hezbollah rockets fall in Haifa. And we know that in humor, timing is everything.

    Bob, about the links: The Cable Game link leads to ICN. FYI.

    Whoops. Fixed.

    A note on KO's "hacked email" claim...

    I have sent an email to the AP asking for a clarification. On a related topic, I have emails in to officials at GE asking how KO's emails square with their corporate policies. I also sent an email to the Anti-Defamation League asking whether they had any comment on KO's Nazi salute.

    Chip,

    A friendly word of advice...don't post links like this in a comment thread or people will accuse you of link-whoring. Email me the link and I will post it on the mini-blog. If it is particularly noteworthy I will link it on the main blog. Generally, I will see all blog posts that mention Olbermann and link most of them.

    So, Olbermann makes a joke about O'Reilly being a Nazi and O'Reilly constantly insists people on the left are terrorists. Who is the bigger man? I'm not sure.

    Ap Story . . . very weird behavior by Olby

    Olbermann Dons O'Reilly Mask at TV Meeting

    [NOTE: I deleted out the AP story for two reasons. First, we already linked the story in another post so it is redundant. Second, the entire article was posted and I don't feel like getting a "take down" notice from AP.]

    You can find the link to this AP story here:

    If you want to paste in a line or two from the story and comment on it please be my guest.

    Apparently you haven't paid attention to the ratings for the last year. O"reilly is down to 400,000 viewers while Greta is kicking his butt. Actually Fox viewership has gone down this past year overall, as well as people who go to drudgereport. It doesn't surprise me, America is finally starting to wake up to their propaganda.

    KFK:
    Olbermann doesn't lie on his program, if he does please provoide real examples of this. O'Reilly on the other hand lies on a regular basis. He even makes up stories that certain schools ban Chritsmas songs and you people by it hook line and sinker. Please post an undeniable lie that Olbermann has reported on.

    You people need to get a life. O'Reilly is one of the biggest BS artists of the Right Wing Psychos.

    Olbermann doesn't lie on his program, if he does please provoide real examples of this.

    Okay, here's one, albeit a small example that still shows the mindset that KO uses on his show.

    When Drudge reported on leaked e-mails from an ABC producer, e-mails that had critical comments about Bush by the producer, Olbermann said that the White House was behind the leaking.

    Two days later, it turned out that the e-mails were leaked by a disgruntled former ABC employee and the White House had no role in the affair.

    Olbermann had zero evidence - none - that the White House was behind the leaking.

    Did Olbermann correct his allegation? No.

    Now, did Olbermann lie? Well, since I can't get into his mind (thankfully - what a Felliniesque trip that would be) I can't prove his deceit.

    Let me just say I have my suspicions.

    There are others or examples. Just hunt around here if you insist on documentation.

    Just because you THINK is true, that doesn't make it REAL, you Mr. PupuCRAP

    Numbers, SHOW ME THE NUMBERS...O'Reilly has been the #1 in cable news for the last three years. O'Reilly is down 300,000 from almost 6,000,000 million every night vs. OlberCRAP 449,999 + you = 450,000 every night.

    Larry,

    The numbers fluctutate nightly with those fluctations being news-driven (e.g., numbers for cable news are up across the board since the fighting in Israel and Lebanon began). If you look at the moving average of the quarterly numbers O'Reilly gets around 2mm; Olbermann gets around 350k - give or take. Olby's numbers did go up dramatically around the time of the Winter Olympics which were aired, in part, on MSNBC. Since then Olympics ended KO's ratings have been in steady decline.

    The Nazi salute is now linked on Drudge. He really is finished this time.

    By the way, TVNewser is still silent.

    i'm no fan of keith's but that photo sure does look photo-shoped i could be wrong but it looks fishy.

    Photoshopped? Is that going to be the defense here? Wasn't that photo posted and written about on a cable media site? Not even Obly's FANS are claiming that the photo is doctored. Unless they can get ahold of Mary Mapes to get a list of her "experts". I am sure they could find someone who thinks FOX news not only hacked into Olby's email but also incarnated the spirit Dr. Strangelove to make him force Olby to do that salute.

    Sorry, that dog don't hunt. It humps.

    This may get a bit interesting, since there's no other news going on (ahem).

    MSNBC will ask Olbermann to apologize for the stunt. Now, I can't imagine Olbermann apologizing to O'Reilly even if Olbermann accidently ran over one of O'Reilly's children. Much less a mea culpa over this frat boy act.

    So, Olbermann will likely offer up a mealy-mouthed apology to "Those I may have offended" but not an explicit one to O'Reilly.

    If he's asked by his superiors to apologize to O'Reilly, he'll refuse and likely be suspended. Martyred Keith, the new patron Saint of pomposity.

    Anyway, as we know, radio DJs often do things like this in order to hype up ratings. Act silly, get suspended, get in the papers and then come back two weeks later with a tan (orange or other color).

    As I said: a bit interesting (emphasis on "a bit").

    SMG

    I emailed Beth Harris of the AP to ask why she omitted the Nazi salute and why she did not try to ascertain the credibility of Olbermann's allegation that his email was hacked into (by Fax news?)

    info@ap.org is the general mailbox. I think all AP empoloyees are first intial and last name at ap dot org

    maybe someone more familiar with the events of the Nazi salute can ask better questions.

    Regarldless, let's see what the AP will say . . . oh, "We didn't see the Nazi salute" or "It was not newsworthy" or "It was in the good of the people to leave that out" or "Our camerman was out of film" or "I was busy saluting back so I didn't put that in my notes" or "That picture is pohotshopped" or "Stephen Glass was taking my noted for me"

    Any others?

    http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/funny/weekend_caption_contest_40630.asp

    TV Newser is running a caption contest for a different photo. I doubt my suggestions will be used

    1. Olbermann gives O'Reilly head at TV Ciritics Assocation

    2. Olbermann, as always, in O'Reilly's shadow

    3. Wow, one area where Olbermann and O'Reilly are even is in the number of chins they have

    KO's never talked to anyone who didn't share his opinion. So KO assumes everyone agree's BO is a nazi like propoganda machine. I think it's called projection. He's not very original though. I mean nazi accusations are already played out.YAWN.

    Anyone who is sincerely interested in the lies of Keith Olbermann need only watch his rarely watched program for a sample or 10. Or simply dive into the archives here at OlbermannWatch. Asking for proof of Keith's lies is like asking for proof of Bill O'Reilly mercilessly destroying him.

    Mr. Populist asked whether Keith lies. I don't know whether he does, but what he does do is tell half-truths. Presenting only one viewpoint (when many are out there) does not tell the whole story and significantly distorts the story that gets presented.

    We think that what Keith did was completely appropriate. The courage!

    If Keith doesn't lie, then the world is a very strange place! The conspiracies that I seem to have ignored astound me. I never realized that there was massive voter fraud in 2004 that benifited only the Republicans. I never realized that every terror alert by homeland security was a ruse. And I never realized that Cheney was actually drunk and deranged when he shot his friend, and that the police covered it all up. In fact, when the old man who was shot came to Cheney's defense, I didn't realize it was all for sho like Keith said!

    If Keith were a physics professor, he would cnange the name of electrons to "conspiratrons" and claim that Karl Rove controlled them all.

    As nice as it might be to slam KO for claiming Fox News hacked his email account, the truth turns out to be a little less interesting. With apologies to Aquaman and TVNewser, I thought I would fact-check the story first. Turns out KO did NOT say or even imply that Fox News hacked his email account which was one reasonable interpretation of the carelessly worded AP story:

    I posted on it here (note: I changed the time stamp on the post below so that the Nazi Salute story would be on top as we roll into the beginning of the new week).

    http://www.olbermannwatch.com/archives/2006/07/who_hacked_olby.html

    Mr. Cox,

    One wishes that Keith would correct himself in such a forthright manner. I should have realized the AP guy couldn't be trusted when he said Keith attacked O'Reilly 15 times. He was off by a factor of 8.

    If this latest "incident" isn't sufficient proof of Olbie's meltdown, I don't know what is. And to think the the head honchos over at MessNBC want to model their entire network after this nut! What are the odds that KTO will spin this in his favor tomorrow on his show?

    I love this Olbermann quote (if the retard from the AP got it right):

    "It's just so much fun," Olbermann said. "I've always liked playing in traffic. "

    Man oh man! Olbermann can't board a subway without hitting his head and giving himself brain damage and he likes to play in traffic? Queef can't drive because of his brain damage from the subway incident but he likes to run out in front of cars?

    No wonder he gets hit so often!

    Hey KO looks quite comfortable with that nazi salute. It must come natural to him. And his propoganda is Goebbel-esque. Yep KO is the minister of propoganda of the Fourth Reich. And John Dean is Colonel Klink. Hillary can play Hitler if she could get like 10 times the charisma she currently has. Murtha is definitely Sgt. Schultz.

    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).

    Bob, if Fox didn't hack into it- who is he blaming?

    KFK, thanks's for the name 'queef'. Queef Odormann might good too.

    Indeed!

    Kfk - just to be clear, no one is correcting anything. I did not post on the Fox News Email Hacking line in the AP story. I held off because it did not seem right. The line seemed vague. My patience paid off because the AP story was...not wrong...let's say "imprecise". But I never posted on this so I am not correcting my own post and AP has yet to reply to my email and has not, to the best of my knowledge, has not issued a correction.

    Kiki - KO says his email account was "hacked" but does not say who would have done this or why. This is the first he's said about this. It is quite different from the statement he put out after the Grove columns where apologized and took responsibility. I can only wonder what his co-workers at NBC Universal's IT department think of this claim that their security is so weak that "hackers" get break in just to send "dirty" emails. You would have to wonder why a hacker who breaks in to the NBC email system would bother with KO's account. Why not go after Brian Williams or Katie Couric? Quite frankly, it does not pass the smell test but it would seem reasonable to ask Keith whether he was backing off his previous apologies for what he wrote in his "dirty" emails.

    I was just looking through the tv listings. Does anybody know when MSNBC will be having Adolf on Headliners and Legends?

    For the record, ICN is not part of the "Olbysphere". Olbermann Watch is not The Borg and ICN has not been assimilated. :P

    You'd think someone with a German last name and a Jewish general manager at MSNBC would be a bit more careful with the Heil Hitler salutes wouldn't you?

    Ah that Keith, never known for thinking before he opens his mouth and shoots himself in the head.

    Queef wouldn't know 'subtlety' if it hit in the face with pickaxe.

    Just because he has German ancestry does not mean he should be any more sensitive about Nazis/Holocaust.

    Anyway the lessons we learn from WWII are not just about the Holocaust which killed many Jews and other minorities.

    Facism is likely what he was referring to, not killing Jews.

    If Fasism is what he was refering to, then why did he have the O'Reilly mask?

    If he thinks O'Reilly is a facsist why not put that in his speech. Spell it out. Instead he puts on a mask and makes a Nazi salute.

    Besides, the classic facists was Mussalini's Italy. The Nazi's were also a dictatorship but they were the National Socialist Party with a polical arm, a military arm and a police arm that was brutally authoritarian, but they were also pagens, anti-Christian, anti-Semitic i.e. pro "Aryan". To wit, they were sick and twisted and evil in ways that facism does not cover.

    So, if Olbermann's salute meant Facism to you, you might want to study a little more.

    Further, might you explain what other lessons "we" (and by "we" I mean YOU)learned about WWII.

    Your comments strike me as very queer.

    I just wrote the general manager of MSNBC, Dan Abrams, and told him I was very offenened by Olbermann giving the nazi salute. I also asked him to cancel the show.

    DAbrams@MSNBC.com

    Please send an email and let him know we want that horrible show canceled.

    Hey maybe Olby is a skinhead wannabe and he thought he was at a rally?

    A lot of people were out showing support for Israel this weekend. And Olby gives the Nazi salute.........Man does this guy know how to fall face first in it every time or what!

    Better adress to use for Abrams is this one: dan.abrams@msnbc.com

    Read your history. American citizens used to salute the flag in the same way before the Nazis took the salute.

    Why does anybody care? Keith is not exactly a brain surgeon when it comes to world affairs and politics, a so-so sports commentator, and dead last in the cable news ratings --let me say that again. Dead Last.

    His relevancy is attributed to what?

    If Uberloon's goal is to piss off Jews...

    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

    Obviously, the fact that you are speaking about it -- says volumes!

    Just to be fair, TV Newser now has the "salute" picture up, and in another item, includes a few non-flattering (to Keith) captions on the picture without the salute.

    We have a lot of new readers on the site this week. A note to you regular OlbyWatch readers - I have been updating this post as the Nazi Salute story spreads so be sure and check the original post from time to time.

    No, it would speak volumes if I watched his show which I have not done since last year. In a word, it's boring.

    How come none of you radical righties cared when Weiner/Savage called the left Nazis last week? Oh, I know the answer, it only matters when someone on the left uses the "Nazi card". Once again, the unhinged right is proven to be hypocrites. Thanks fools.

    Sorry Mr. Cox, I did not see your updates. Thanks!


    and ROFL,
    If any conservative did anything close to this Nazi salute, it would have been all over the Sunday talk shows, over all of the Sunday papers, etc. Plus the guy would have been fired by now.

    Just look what happened to Rush a few years ago - he stated that the media was hoping for a black quarterback to succeed (a true statement), and the media ran him out of town (so to speak). Or at least off ESPN.

    And that's an interesting topic. If ESPN fired Rush a few years ago for making a true statement, should they likewise dump Keith over this idiotic and insulting gesture?

    ROFL wrote "How come none of you radical righties cared when Weiner/Savage called the left Nazis last week"

    Uhhh...maybe because this site is called OLBERMANN Watch and not SAVAGE watch. If you don't like Michael Savage then go start your own blog. Until then - bugger off.

    Come on Russert, Brokaw, Andrea Mitchell, David Gregory, Chris Matthews, Brian Williams, etc . Where's your roudntable on Opie.

    This is your boy on your network self destructing - you can't even take care of your own house - hardly qualified to critique the world's problems.

    Nazi salutes, 5th grade obscenity laced e-mails, 3rd grade attacks on Fox.

    If Opie was a conserv - you would all be OUTRAGED. What a lying, double standard(ed), dishonest spin from supposed qualified journalists. Don't ever let integrity interfere with your agenda

    What was it Brian Williams said after Coulter's book - a lack of civil discourse. Oh yeah - you forgot to add "when it doesn't agree with our lib agenda" What a disgrace

    No need to start a Weiner-watch, ROFL. No one would pay attention because we expect the rabid-right to stay stupid things to try to get attention. That's precisely why this thread, and indeed this site, exists. KO uses ammunition invented by right-wing radio (sensationalism) to blast back in their faces. AND THEY CAN'T STAND IT.

    slow death of the right inadvertently makes this blog's case by acknowledging that Savage and Olberman are cut from the same cloth. Yet only one of them appears as the host of a self described news program. The proper comparison is to Fox straight news hosts - Hume, Wallace, Van Sustern and Shepard Smith (not sure about Cavuto, O'Reilly as they are more point of view shows). Post Rathergate might one of them had dawned a Rather mask to childishly needle Kenneth?

    And is there any news show on television more cocooned than Olberman's? Why is he so afraid to have someone on his show that will challenge his beliefs instead of echoing them? Surely engaging with one hand picked conservative isn't too risky, is it?

    From Polopundit site.

    A joke?, perhaps, but in 2004, a fellow Pro-Wrestler, John Bradshaw Layfield, (JBL in the ring), was fired for exactly the same thing from ????????. MSNBC, where he worked as a financial analyst:

    "During a live event in Germany in June 2004, JBL attempted to get heat with the local crowd by mimicking the Nazi goose-step and salute, an act which is illegal in Germany. Although fired from his position at MSNBC, JBL continued getting a main event push. "

    Something tells me if the roles were reversed, O'Reilly would have already issued an apology and enrolled in "sensitivity" training.

    Dan Abrams has a master plan
    Trick viewers it's not Olbermann
    Keith as O'Reilly
    Will be rated more highly
    And he won't be in last place again

    Mr. Man-Tan pissed on the Jews
    Does anyone care at NBC "News"?
    According to Dan
    Keith is their man
    And they support the hate that he spews

    forgive my ignorance . . . I read on Captain's Quarters that Olby acted out a sex-muder fantasy on an Ann Coulter doll.

    That can't be true, is it? I do know Couter and an action doll and that Obly is a sick twist, but this one is hard to believe.

    Can anyone enlighten me?

    thanks in advance

    Don't you all see? Underneath all this Nazi-saluting is a major-league cry (baseball pun unintended) for help from Keith. Someone over at ESPN took Keith's leaving SportsCenter in 1997 so personally, that he has sworn Keith will never be seen in front of an ESPN camera again. And Keith is trying too hard to please this jerk, whomever he/she is.

    This is getting too ugly, even for a tempestuous job-jumper like KO.

    Were SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO afraid of Keith Olbermann!

    I am, without a doubt, the biggest horse's ass on the planet.

    I haven't seen an over reaction like this since I called NYC " Hymie Town."

    Big Man wrote "forgive my ignorance . . . I read on Captain's Quarters that Olby acted out a sex-muder fantasy on an Ann Coulter doll. That can't be true, is it? I do know Couter and an action doll and that Obly is a sick twist, but this one is hard to believe. Can anyone enlighten me?

    He did do this but I can't recall the exact date.

    We posted on it in January 2005 here:
    http://www.olbermannwatch.com/archives/2005/01/olby_unfiltered.html

    There are references to it in 2004. I want to say it was around Christmas 2004 but I can't be sure. Anyone else know more?

    Sean Penn likes to torture HIS Ann Coulter doll too:
    http://www.nypost.com/gossip/pagesix/66005.htm

    How amusing.
    The Daily Kos mocks this site and its readers. In doing so, it attacks the right wing, saying that we "instantly and unconditionally latch on to any opportunity to attack the people they disagree with. "

    In doing so, the Daily Kos and its reader(s) defend Keith Olbermann, who instantly and unconditionally latches on to any opportunity to attack Bill O'Reilly.
    Yet somehow, they miss the irony. I guess they're too busy telling each other how much smarter they are than us unwashed masses.

    I'm not an O'Reilly fan. In fact, I can't stand most of these primetime news shows...O'Reilly, Hannity&Colmes, Hardball, King. But if I were an O'Reilly admirer, I don't think I would still defend him if he behaved in the boorish, ignorant and insulting manner that Keith Olbermann did with his nazi salute. Utterly classless.

    ROLF and slow death both seem to have forgotten that Michael Savage had his own Saturday night show on MSNBC three years ago, and when he made what some people considered an offensive comment, well, the network didn't exactly look the other way.

    We'll see what the corrolation between gratuitous Nazi salutes and anti-gay remarks are in the next day or so, when we see how MSNBC handles Keith's actions in comparison to how they dealt with Savage's statement.

    Sad. Would Keith find this funny?

    Sorry about the double post. The cgi gave me an error in the preview window, then went through any way.

    Damn robots.

    Haahahaha, you people are really funny!
    I'm sure Olby will think of something else so you'll
    have something to post on your blog.
    Its like Howard Stern, Most of his biggest fans
    were the ones that "Supposedly" hated him.
    Olby's intelligent and he's the best on air right now.

    The reason you don't hear us savaging Savage is that most of us know he is irrelevant. We don't hold him up as the conservative answer to Dan rather, unlike many on the left who hold up Olbermann as the liberal answer to O'Reilly.

    Most of us eschewed Savage long ago. When will the left do that with Olbermann? Never would be my guess.

    Can anyone enlighten me?

    He did do this but I can't recall the exact date.

    Yes, he did destroy an Ann Coulter doll on the air in 2004. But anyone who translates that into "acting out a sex-murder fantasy" needs to go have their head examined.

    And Robert, you should draw the distinction - your comment seems to indicate that you agree despite the fact that your own blog seems to limit the act to the destruction of the doll.

    Savage has the same pathetic jealousy/lust toward O'Reilly that Olbermann continuously spouts. He never uses his name; just calls him "the Leprauchan."

    Sad.

    I generally take advise on how to run my blog from people that I know or - at least - people who post BY NAME on my blog. But nice try anyway.

    Meanwhile - for those who have not checked the updates to the post, I linked the TV critic of the Kansas City Star newspaper who was 10 feet from Olby for the Nazi salute. He actually based his questions to KO during the press on Olbermann Watch. Too bad there is no video of KO's reax to THAT question.

    And welcome to all you new readers from...

    Daily Kos, GOP Bloggers, Captain's Quarters, Instapundit and all other blogs now linking OlbyWatch. Also, Pat Campbell listeners and Kansas City Star readers.

    Could this be Olby's jump the shark moment?

    False outrage at it's best. Second only to flag burning.

    Oh, and the 100th celebrated "attack on Bill O'Reilly" wasn't the 100th time he was named worst person in the world. Even look at the 100th attack post on this site, it comes after Olbermann mentions (to Sen. Boxer I think) something about O'Reilly.

    "Olby's intelligent ... "

    Compared to you, maybe.

    " ... and he's the best on air right now."

    Best at what? Can't possibly be for drawing viewers. Best at pandering to idiotic screeching moonbats? Quite possibly.

    ...The shark Olby's jumping is so bloody huge that he's still in/on the air.

    Get off Olby's back! You right wingers hate Olby because he speaks truth to power!! Hate, hate Hate!!! There is no difference between O'Reilly's support of the Bushies and the Nazis, so your not gettin no apology! Ha! Deal with it, uberfasists.

    Olbermann was not on the Dan Patrick show on ESPN today. Did ABC/ESPN pull the plug on him?

    Did ABC/ESPN pull the plug on him?

    No, Keith's in L.A. this week (he'll be on The Tonight Show on 7/25).

    right winger = nazi
    o'riley = right winger
    o'riley = nazi

    Therefore

    right wing outrage over Olby's nazi salute = stupidity

    Let X equal the quantity of all quantities of X.

    Let X equal the cold.

    It is cold in December.

    The months of cold equal November through February.

    There are four months of cold and four of heat leaving four months of indeterminate temperature.

    In February. It snows.

    In March. The lake is a lake of ice.

    In September. The students come back and the bookstores are full.

    Let X equal the month of full bookstores

    The number of books approaches infinity as the number of months of cold approaches four.

    I will never be as cold now as I will in the future.

    The future of cold is infinite.

    The future of heat is the future of cold.

    The bookstores are infiniteand so are never full
    except in September

    Keith ("I answer to no one") Olbermann's list of apology receivers keeps getting longer...

    1. Rita Cosby
    2. ESPN Radio
    3. The entire Jewish population

    On the positive side, Keith's pissing off a progressively larger audience with each subsequent cheap shot. You go, Keith!

    LOL. Its like watching Vermont try to mock Texas.

    Get real.

    How many times has BO called liberals Nazis?

    Now when someone goes back at him using the SAME tactics you are all horrified?

    Of course, you will have excuses--like they really are Nazis; or BO says in in jest; or plain deny he has ever done that.

    Hang in there Keith ole' buddy. Take some advice from someone who's been there-- don't let the right wing media make you apologize for calling someone a Nazi who deserves to be called one. I shoulda stuck by my guns. Tell all your critics to go f*ck themselves. We Democrats are going to win in November-- we just need you telling it like it is to lead the way!

    It was Olbermann himself who branded someone 'Worst Person in the World" because they used a Nazi referene. I guess the double-standard applies here, as usual where Olbermann is concerned.

    You just don't get it do you? He's a hypocrite and a liar and a fraud. And he proves it over and over and over again but some of you are still too dense to get it. When he finally flames out in spectacular fashion it will at least be amusing watching some of your heads explode in shock since you're too clueless to realize how sick and twisted he truly is.

    You just don't get it do you? Bush is a hypocrite and a liar and a fraud. And he proves it over and over and over again but some of you are still too dense to get it. As he has finally flamed out in spectacular fashion, it has been amusing watching your heads explode in shock since you're too clueless to realize how sick and twisted he truly is.

    I would love to see Bill O walk up to Olberman and knock his mother fucking teeth out right on national tv. I would pay big money to see that. He deserves it.

    crshhed,

    To answer your question, I don't think O'Reilly has EVER called you libs "Nazis". If he did, he would have been fired, and you know it.

    The name of this blog is not BushWatch. It's Olbermannwatch.

    Yeah, but the irony of your wording isn't lost on your dittohead brain, is it?

    Missy:

    I knew it. BO supporters will deny BO ever compared Franken & Moore to Goebbles. Nor the many celebs that speak out to Nazi propaganda machines.

    And you THINK he would be fired?????? Ann Coulter comes on Fox, sometimes three times in a single day and calls for poisoning Supreme Court judges, says she is sorry McVeigh didn't bomb the New York Times, etc and they STILL bring her back. Why would Fox fire BO? You guys believe everything he says, and then you stick up for his BS.

    Just like Bush, blame liberals and then whatever you do is okay.

    "Mr Populist" (see comment posted at July 23, 2006 05:38 PM above) is apparently an idiot.

    I live in a PC university town, and I have seen first-hand the continual escalating attacks on Christmas, beginning in the early 90s with the elmination of optional high school evening Christmas carol chorus shows.

    I am a lifelong atheist, but even I have to conceed the concerted vanquishing of traditioner beloeved by others, amounting to cultural cleansing by persecuting zealots. Only an idiot denies reality.

    Bill O'Reilly is arguably wrong about many things, but a War on Christmas is definitely not one of them.

    An on air apology from Keith to Bill is insufficiet. I want his no talent, left wing arse fired.

    Thanks Johnny Dollar for the illumination on Olby's hypocrisy regarding his abhorence toward calling political opponents " nazis." Why was I not suprised?

    Thanks for the link, though being called a member of the "Olbersphere" is a little creepy. Makes me want to take one of the showers porn stars take when they decide to quit the business.

    I think Karl Rove had that picture of my good friend Keith photo shopped. KARL ROVE KARL ROVE KARL ROVE KARL ROVE KARL ROVE KARL ROVE KARL ROVE

    >How many times has BO called liberals Nazis?

    Never I think. Nice try though, playing it safe by phrasing it as a question.

    I updated the post again - Roger Ailes defended O'Reilly and took on KO earlier today in Pasadena.

    UPDATE: Roger Ailes is defending O'Reilly, slamming Keith - Associated Press, Broadcasting & Cable

    Did someone mention porn stars? Where?

    Down goes Olbermann, down goes Olbermann!

    If BO had likened lefties to nazis would he be wrong? Every time lefties have the chance they side with facsist,communist,totalitarian leaders.
    The left gave aid Ho Chi Minh.Gave comfort to Pol Pot. Coddled Castro.Still love Lenin. Supported Saddam. Team with Terrorists. Rally side by side with Hizbollah. Joe Kennedy was a Hitler sympathizing anti-semite.Bobby Byrd a grand kleagle.And on and on.....


    Ailes nails:


    ” Ailes says of MSNBC’s Olbermann. “He’s made himself committed to continuing to attack Bill and, therefore, his family and I really think that’s over the line.... It seems like the use of corporate assets for personal vendettas.”


    It also seems Olbermann uses corporate assets for personal pieces of ass, too.

    I guess TV newser is posting tons of stuff on this now since he is, you know, back at the computer.

    Brian's response:

    Did you stop and wonder that maybe I was away from the blog today?

    It would be alot easier to believe Brian was away from the blog if

    a) he didn't suddenly post an avalanche of stories on Monday as if he were storing them all up and

    b) if he had a life. That pudgy chocaholic is addicted to the internet. No way he wouldn't log on at some point in the day. The technology is such that you can log on for an hour before beddy by and post something, even if Mommy wants you to have your cocoa and get in your jammies right away!

    I stopped watching PMSNBC a long time ago.

    PMSNBC is my favorite news channel. I dont watch it at night as much though, and only watch Olberman every once and a while. He's pretty good.

    They should have kept Donahue though and put Keith on at 9 or 10, then he could comment on even what O'Reilly did on his show THAT NIGHT.

    "Bill O'Reilly is arguably wrong about many things, but a War on Christmas is definitely not one of them."

    yeah, kind of like how the world being round was a war on flatness.

    Let's see here, kids can't sing religious Christmas carols at school, libraries ban nativity scenes from their grounds, clerks are instructed not to wish patrons of stores Merry Christmas, schools call that vacation that happens to fall around the same time as Christmas " Winter break ". There's no war on Christmas. Keith Olbermann says so.

    UPDATE: FNC's Ailes Responds To Olbermann and Olbermann responds to Ailes (by attacking O'Reilly)

    "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."

    Is KO dissing media matters?

    desperate(ly) and unfair(ly) are two words that fit extremely well.

    And as is typical of Olbermann, he lies about what Bill O'Reilly actually said in Olbermann's response to Roger Ailes. Olbermann is further showing himself to be a habitual liar.


    here's BillOs comments:

    "General, you need to look at the Malmedy massacre in World War Two, and the 82nd Airborne who did it."

    "In Malmedy, as you know, US Forces captured SS forces who had their hands in the air and they were unarmed and they shot them down. You know that. It's on the record and documented."

    "In the heat of the debate with General Clark my statement wasn't clear enough... after Malmedy some German captives were executed by American troops"

    here are Keith's:

    "Where was Roger Ailes when Bill O'Reilly defended the Nazi SS stormtroopers from Malmedy in World War II? The SS shot 84 American POW's there in 1944, and three different times in the last year, Bill has called those dead American heroes war criminals. I guess there is no line at Fox News."

    ------------

    and here are yours:

    "And as is typical of Olbermann, he lies about what Bill O'Reilly actually said in Olbermann's response to Roger Ailes."

    OK, i'll bite -- what Keith lies are you referring to?


    Fox News talk show host Bill O'Reilly implied, during two separate interviews with Wesley Clark, one in October 2005 and one in May 2006, that the Malmedy massacre was perpetrated by American soldiers. A Fox News transcript of the episode was altered to indicate that O'Reilly had said "Normandy" rather than "Malmedy," even though O'Reilly clearly said "Malmedy" on the broadcast. In a later broadcast, O'Reilly indicated that he "was not clear" during his "heated debate with Wesley Clark", and was referring to the reprisal killings, allegedly perpetrated by American soldiers, in response to the Malmedy massacre, not the Malmedy massacre itself.

    KO is cum drunk and Dana Spermbank looks a few pounds (quarts) lighter.

    So how exactly did O'Reilly's error give Olbermann excuse for making a Heil Hitler salute?

    Bill O'Reilly is a member of the NAZI Party. I have the proof.

    Well KO you must be too because you sure do have that Nazi salute down.
