    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    July 12, 2006
    TVN: Journalism at its finest - Part II

    If anyone has the video, I will host it.

    Joe Kernan of CNBC's Squawk Box just addressed the supposed controversy over his supposed belief that the fictional Aquaman movie (see, HBO Entourage) was real and that the Disney film Pirates of the Carribean II had opened bigger than Aquaman. The clip they played made it quite clear that he was joking - he even referenced Entourage (the clip making the rounds is a subsequent report where he does not mention Entourage, thus taken out of context, it forms the basis for the claim).

    Kernan was reacting to a story in The New York Daily News which cites TVNewser as a source for the story. TVN linked to a heretofore unknown (to me) blog called Marketing is my Middle Name.

    If you have a grab of TVN's original post and "correction" post, I will host it.

    I only know about this "controversy" because in writing my post yesterday about Brian blaming Fox News for his erroneous reports about FNC personnel moves, the Kernan item was in the same post.

    I only mention it because it is yet another example of a TVN rowback on its erroneous reporting. I don't want to turn this site into "TVN Watch" but as one of the primary apologists for MSNBC and Keith Olbermann, the supposed credibility of TVN has some bearing on this site. That MSM'ers like Brian Williams, Dan Abrams and Peter Johnson of USA Today are out there trying to tell the public that TVN is some kind of font of journalistic integrity, it is worth noting that long-time TVN readers know that there is an extensive history of revisionism at TVNewser from manipulating time stamps on posts, to surreptiously editing posts that later prove erroneous, to removing links, to purging entire posts either because they are later proven wrong or at the behest of TV executives not happy with TVN reports.

    Yesterday, there was a post on TVN with a headline which went something like "He Was Just Kidding" which referenced/corrected the original report on Tuesday, July 11th. That post/headline is no longer on the site. Olbermann Watch readers will recall how TVN removed a link to our post about an email exchange KO had with a TV producer in DC after Olbermann complained to Brian - eventually removing the post altogether. Just the other day, TVN linked to the infamous "For This Relief" blog only to remove the link within an hour claiming that he did so because the URL was serving up a "404 error". Not only did TVN remove the link but he removed any mention of Olbermann in the post as well. Based on past history, should TVN be surprised when knowledgeable readers conclude that this is yet another example of TVN rewriting the news to suit KO and his pals at MSNBC?

    Reading TVN is like reading Wikipedia without the transparency of the "history" tab where you can see previous versions of the entry. We may have to recruit a new contributor for Olbermann Watch whose sole job will be to take screen grabs of every post on TVN and compare them to what is on the site a week later. Or maybe TVN will embrace genuine editorial integrity and post a corrections policy, create a "corrections" category, clearly label corrections, use strikethroughs to correct errors instead of erasing them or substituting the correct information after the fact, and stop removing posts/links that MSNBC and Keith Olbermann don't like.

    When you go tell one of the biggest newspapers in the country "credibility is all I have" you had better be able to back that up.

    Bob, it looks like the Kernen item is still on the site, along with the "just kidding," which was never a headline:

    http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/the_ticker/the_ticker_logan_kernen_brokaw_39918.asp

    Here I go again. Every time these ratings come out I write Keith a nice letter. I have been doing it longgggggggggggg before this web site was formed. I politely ask Keith what favors are being exchanged in order for him to stay on the air. Honestly, sometimes I tease him about “Old Larry” Kick’in his ass, but all in all they are nice emails. Regretfully Keith has yet to write me back with an answer. I mean, I believe in a lot of stuff (Santa Claus, Boogie Man etc…) but I can’t believe this guy can stay on the air with some “monkey business” going on.


    FOXNEWS O'REILLY 2,264,000
    FNC HANNITY/COLMES 1,801,000
    CNN LARRY KING 1,382,000
    FNC GRETA 1,340,000
    FNC SHEP SMITH 1,252,000
    FNC HUME 1,197,000
    CNN COOPER 1,132,000
    CNN DOBBS 823,000
    CNN PAULA ZAHN 679,000
    MSNBC HARDBALL 360,000
    CNNHN GRACE 354,000
    MSNBC OLBERMANN 349,000

    Sorry I wasn’t being altogether truthful in my last post. I did once tell Keith that I think more people watch me piss in the morning then are watching him…but hey it’s a joke and I know Olby has a great sense of humor

    SoWrong,

    At least you picked an appropriate psuedonym for this comment. If you had bothered to read the post you are commenting on you might have noticed that I already linked to the current version of the Kernan item on the site. You know, the one you pasted into your comment:

    http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/the_ticker/the_ticker_logan_kernen_brokaw_39918.asp

    Fool.

    How do those July 10 numbers jive with Krazy Keith's ravings last night about his ratings being way up and O'Reilly's being way down? I mean, who should I believe?
