    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    August 22, 2006
    COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN - AUGUST 22, 2006

    "COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)

    Host: Keith Olbermann

    Topics/Guests:

    • JONBENET RAMSEY: Larry Pozner, attorney
    • PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS: Dana Milbank, Washington Post
    • HILLARY'S PRESIDENTIAL ASPIRATIONS

    The Hour of Spin was back on its axis tonight, as the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann was once more running the carousel.

    olby.jpg

    From the opening spiel:

    Only half the suspects in the purported airline plot head to court, amid public concerns in England that the scope and scale of the alleged attack had been exaggerated.

    Krazy Keith wants so badly for this terror plot to be a fake. You could hear the desperation in his voice. Note the use of the spin phrase "public concerns". That covers just about anything: even a guy standing on a soapbox yelling at people in Picadilly Square. We'll see just who was voicing these concerns, and how significant they were.

    Oh, by the way, KO wasn't exactly breaking a sweat tonight. Remember the propaganda film (terror and politics) he replayed just about a week ago? Tonight he was able to fill out another entire segment by rerunning the rerun. But it was by popular demand. Translation: a letter flooded in. And it was signed "Katy".

    After the obligatory JonBenet coverage, Olby cited a poll on Iraq to lead into a story on Iran. Then he quoted from "Mister" Bush and ran a clip from yesterday's press conference. Yesterday's? Like we said, Keith wasn't exactly trying tonight. Dana Milbank, sans splashy smocks, was there to dissect the Q&A. Wait a second, didn't the UnJournalist analyze the press conference just last night with a Washington Post scribe? Well, yes. So why are we getting yesterday's news? You'll have to ask Krazy Keith, who was tossing out phrases like "parsing-based reality" (huh?) and making lame attempts at spin. Example: he took the President's statement that Iraq and 9/11 weren't connected and tried to say that meant that Iraq and terrorism aren't connected.

    After oddball, another tease for the "purported" bomb plot and the rerun of a rerun. The #3 story began with KO referencing "withering criticism" of the terror bomb arrests, but still didn't cite any source. Then Keith talked about the police press conference, held "despite claims that they hyped this plot". Claims by whom? Once again, Keith Olbermann cited nobody--nobody!--who made these claims.

    Remember, today these people were formally charged in court with conspiracy to commit mass murder and terrorism. Just a few days ago KO was telling his gullible viewers that the bottom fell out of the case, and predicted that a successful prosecution would be all but impossible. Maybe that's why he had to invent all these "public concerns" and "withering criticisms" that he never got around to documenting.

    The rest of the segment was devoted to the rerun of a rerun (Krazy's Keith's Konspiracy). Talk about phoning it in! But hey, it beats working. Then it was on to a regurgitated NBC report on Hillary Clinton's political future.

    There were repeated teasers throughout the evening for something about Bill O'Reilly ("Falafel Factor"). This illness appears to be contagious. Dan Abrams likes citing O'Reilly so much he's having Joe Scarborough do it. (Last night, after heavy promotion, Joe reported on a totally fictitious "feud" between Mr Bill and The Daily Show. The only evidence was one clip of a joking exchange between O'Reilly and Stewart from an old 2004 interview!) Where does Abrams come up with these ideas? He's a promotional genius!

    Keith Olbermann's Bill O'Reilly "news" proved to be something about a traffic stop where the driver told the cop he was listening to O'Reilly on the radio. Let's see: relentless hype for a Scarborough segment that proved to be nothing at all. Then relentless hype for an Olbermann report that had less substance than Scarborough's segment. Give Dan Abrams an Emmy!

    Of course, the discredited Keith Olbermann was so busy concocting attack #106 that he just couldn't find time to report on the kidnapped Fox journalists, not even to urge their release or offer wishes for their safe return. Maybe someone will whisper that idea in his ear tonight, before her bedtime.

    It seems that each time Olbermann tells a lie he becomes more orange. Slap a Sunkist label on him and cancel the show.

    Love ME Bill!

    Once again Olbermann continued to spew pro-Iranian Jihadi propaganda. Obviously he's trying out for Al-Jazeera International. He had a propaganda piece for Hillary, I guess he's trying out to be her press secreatry! He's just a useless hack and should be ignored!

    Tomorrow on countdown

    The NEXUS OF IRAN AND THE RAMSEY CASE.

    Could the entire case be a front to provide distraction from irans weapons programs? I will not give an answer (because there is none), but I feel it is my duty to ask the question ( and also try and increase my ratings by giving the conspiracy loving bush haters what they want to see).

    December 19, 1996 - Department of Defense releases a report "Proliferation: Threat and Response, April 1996." In the report, Iran is cited as having "a two-track ballistic missile program. In addition to acquiring SCUD missiles and missile-related equipment from North Korea, it also seeks to establish its own production capability . . . Iran has already begun assembling missiles using foreign-made components and eventually it may produce these components domestically."

    December 26, 1996: Early in the morning, her mother Patricia Ramsey finds a three-page ransom note downstairs in the family's home. The parents discover she is missing and call police. Later, they find JonBenet's body in a basement room.

    January 7 1997 - "An Israeli delegation tells the White House officials and members of Congress that Russian firms and institutes were providing critical assistance to Iran?s missile development program ? U.S. intelligence reportedly confirmed the Israeli conclusions." (Goldman, Stuart et al. "Russian Missile Technology and Nuclear Reactor Transfers to Iran" 14 December 1998 CRS Report 98-299F)

    January 10: Police records reveal that a 911 call was placed from the Ramsey home on December 23, three days before JonBenet was found dead. Authorities later learn it was a nonemergency call mistakenly made by a drunken party guest.

    September 7 1997 - Israeli intelligence briefings say that Russia is assisting Iran with four different missile programs (Cordesman).


    September 8:District Attorney Alex Hunter releases a photocopy of the ransom note found in the Ramsey home eight hours before JonBenet Ramsey's body was discovered on December 26.

    September 9: - Investigators from the Boulder County District Attorney's Office and the Boulder Police Department meet with members of the FBI's Child Abduction and Serial Crimes Unit to discuss the case. According to an FBI spokesman, the purpose of the meeting was to come up with a profile or criminal investigative analysis to help police narrow the focus of their investigation to a few suspects.

    September 29: -- Authorities release 65 pages of search warrants and related documents that allowed police to spend eight days going through the Colorado home of John and Patsy Ramsey. The Ramseys had objected to the release of the search warrants, arguing their right to privacy would be violated.

    September 26, 1997 - President Yeltsin categorically denies Russian involvement with Iran?s missile programs.

    October 10: Boulder Police Chief Tom Koby names Cmdr. Mark Beckner to take over the Ramsey investigation from Cmdr. John Eller, who headed the probe for nine months. Koby acknowledges mistakes in the investigation, saying, "If we had it to do all over again, we would do it differently."

    October 2, 1997 - Russian intelligence official says that earlier in the year they "thwarted" an attempt by Iran to order "joints and parts for a liquid-fuel missile engine" from a Russian factory.


    November 1997 - Report suggests that Iran has concluded a deal to give Libya some Shehab-3 technology.
    Russia expels an Iranian diplomat for attempting to purchase missile engine blueprints (Goldman, Stuart et al. "Russian Missile Technology and Nuclear Reactor Transfers to Iran" 14 December 1998 CRS Report 98-299F)
    The DoD releases a report titled "Proliferation: Threat and Response." Excerpts of the report follow:
    Iran
    OBJECTIVES, STRATEGIES, AND RESOURCES
    Iran?s emphasis on pursuing independent production capabilities for NBC weapons and missiles is driven by its experience during the 1980-1988 war with Iraq, during which it was unable to respond adequately to Iraqi chemical and missile attacks and suffered the effects of an international arms embargo.
    Ballistic Missiles
    Maintains and is capable of using SCUD B/Cs and CSS-8s.
    Produces SCUDs with North Korean help.
    Seeks to produce longer range missiles (1,000 kilometers or more).
    Not a member of the Missile Technology Control Regime.
    BALLISTIC MISSILES
    "Iran has an ambitious missile program, with SCUD B, SCUD C, and CSS-8 (a Chinese surface-to-surface missile derived from a surface-to-air missile) missiles in its inventory. Having first acquired SCUD missiles from Libya and North Korea for use during the Iran-Iraq war, the Iranians are now able to produce the missile themselves. This has been accomplished with considerable equipment and technical help from North Korea. Iran has made significant progress in the last few years toward its goal of becoming self-sufficient in ballistic missile production.
    Iran produces the solid-propellant 150 kilometer range Nazeat 10 and 200 kilometer range Zelzal unguided rockets. Iran also is trying to produce a relatively short-range solid-propellant missile. For the longer term, Iran?s goal is to establish the capability to produce medium range ballistic missiles to expand its regional influence. It is attempting to acquire production infrastructure to enable it to produce the missiles itself. Like many of Iran?s other efforts, success with future missile capabilities will depend on key equipment and technologies from China, North Korea, and Russia.
    Iran?s missiles allow it to strike a wide variety of key economic and military targets in several neighboring countries, including Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and the other Gulf states. Possible targets include oil installations, airfields, and ports, as well as U.S. military deployment areas in the region. All of Iran?s missiles are on mobile launchers, which enhance their survivability. Should Iran succeed in acquiring or developing a longer range missile like the North Korean No Dong, it could threaten an even broader area, including much of Israel."

    November 17: District Judge Richard W. May orders that documents involving a search of the summer home of John and Patsy Ramsey be made public, but rules that some of the information could be blacked out.

    November 19: Boulder Police Chief Tom Koby says he will retire at the end of 1998 but plans to decide whether to charge someone with the Ramsey murder within six months.

    May 23, 1998 - Senate passes Iran Missile Proliferation Sanctions Act.
    June 23, 1998 - Clinton vetos Iran Missile Proliferation Sanctions Act

    June 25: JonBenet's parents are interviewed by investigators from the Boulder County district attorney's office. Attorneys for John and Patsy Ramsey had said they were willing to cooperate with the district attorney's office in its investigation now that police have turned over the case to Alex Hunter's office.

    February 2000 - Israeli officials claim that Iran conducts No Dong engine tests. US Natl. Intel. Council head Robert Walpole had previously stated that Iran acquired 12 No Dong engines following the failure of the Shehab-3?s engine in its maiden flight.

    March 17, 2000 -- The Ramseys release their book, "The Death of Innocence," about their daughter's death and launch a national media campaign to promote it.

    I?ll stop here for my own sanity.

    Erie stuff. Add the recent events with Karr and how that has distracted us from Iran?s nuclear program and wow. Clearly the Ramsey case was a front for the growing Iranian weapons program. Everyone, the DA, the boulder police, the Ramsey's and even Karr are all in on it.

    Kieth is right, this is fun.

    i think next i'll connect the rate of my aging to the growth of a tree out in my backyard. I'm telling you, every year on my birthday i get older, and every year that tree changes colors around my birthday. THERE MUST BE A CONNECTION!!

    Hey nick,
    Can you do a picture of Olbermann dressed up like a Jihadi!

    Even for KO this was a bad program,,talk about reaching..the O'Reilly segment was just stupid,at first I thought Bill was pulled over but it just a driver trying to get out of a ticket?..thats weak KO very ,very weak.

    Ok KO get this through head..you are never going to beat Bill..even if he dies and is replaced with a lump of mud...the mud will still beat you.

    I think "The Nexus of Orange Man-Tan and Low Ratings" would be a better (and more accurate) segment than the dribble he put on tonight (and last week, and last month).

    Bill should send a thank you note over to Abrams for the free if somewhat shotty p.r. Not that he needs it being number one in the time slot. But hey a free lunch, is a free lunch! Even if it is just Bologna and Cheese.

    ....the mud will still beat you

    Does that also include rock,paper, sciccors?

    Bill should send a thank you note over to Abrams for the free if somewhat shotty p.r. Not that he needs it being number one in the time slot. But hey a free lunch, is a free lunch! Even if it is just Bologna and Cheese.
    ************************************************
    Yes I think this has backfired on KO...the whole reason for KO to keep bring up O'Reilly is the hope that Bill will say his name on The Factor and bring viewers to Countdown..but Bill won't do it so it just makes KO look like a stalker and is more than likely driving viewers to Bill.

    Does that also include rock,paper, sciccors?
    ****************************************

    Everything beats KO. :)

    Apparently any mention of Bill O'reilly by some random person in a negative context regardless if Bill himself is actual involved is newsworthy. Talk about complete waste of network airtime. Again Olbyloons, why should Keith be taken serious as an actual newscaster? God forbid he actually spends time on things that aren't completely irrelevant.

    TOMMOROW ON COUNTDOWN

    Exclusive Interview

    "84 year old woman happens upon a oil stain on the sidewalk which apparently shows,what appears to be the scowling face of Bill O'Reily!!!

    Good one Dave!

    Again The Krazy Orange One wonders out loud if this Karr dude is just a patsy (I made a funny) in a larger conspiracy to "Smoke out" the real killer of JonBenet Ramsey.

    Was Krazy Keith doing his show from a broom closet with shit lighting? His bottom lip looked all red and inflamed. And clearly his tub of orange glow was confiscated at the airport. Krazy Keith didn't have that east coast orange hue.


    A sleepy or drunk Bill Clinton was napping in the front row at Shea Stadium tonight.
    I smell a Krazy Keith Conspiracy!!!!

    Funny how when Olby does that moron-mocking voice when he's introducing an O'Reilly segment, he's actually sounding like an exaggerated impression of himself!

    Olbie's getting desperate! The segement on Bill O'Reilly was pathetic and to think it was the No.1 story, too. Talk about stretching. For all we know, the traffic stop incident could have been a hoax concocted by KTO and his producers.

    Once again Olbermann continued to spew pro-Iranian Jihadi propaganda. Obviously he's trying out for Al-Jazeera International.

    GODDAMMIT PALPATINE! SHUT YOU FUCKING SHITHOLE BEFORE I KICK YOUR SORRY ASS!

    I wonder if KO will do a segment on this story:

    The Fertility Gap
    Liberal politics will prove fruitless as long as liberals refuse to multiply.

    But the data on young Americans tell a different story. Simply put, liberals have a big baby problem: They're not having enough of them, they haven't for a long time, and their pool of potential new voters is suffering as a result. According to the 2004 General Social Survey, if you picked 100 unrelated politically liberal adults at random, you would find that they had, between them, 147 children. If you picked 100 conservatives, you would find 208 kids. That's a "fertility gap" of 41%. Given that about 80% of people with an identifiable party preference grow up to vote the same way as their parents, this gap translates into lots more little Republicans than little Democrats to vote in future elections. Over the past 30 years this gap has not been below 20%--explaining, to a large extent, the current ineffectiveness of liberal youth voter campaigns today.

    Democratic politicians may have no more babies left to kiss.

    Also Olbermann always talk highly of the Iranians and never criticozes Hizb'Allah or Al-Qaeda.
    He talks very highly of Iranian president whatever his name!
    Answer me why!
    He's asn Iranian agent and I'v ereported him to the FBI and sent transcripts of his show to prove it!

    Some get it. Most, even many of those on "our side," don't. It's too horrible to contemplate.

    Fanatics filled with hate cannot be either deterred or bought off, whether Hezbollah, Hamas or the government of Iran.
    ...

    Humiliation and hate go together. Why humiliation? Because a once-proud, dynamic culture in the forefront of world civilizations, and still carrying a message of their own superiority to "infidels" today, is painfully visible to the whole world as a poverty-stricken and backward region, lagging far behind in virtually every field of human endeavor.

    There is no way that they can catch up in a hundred years, even if the rest of the world stands still. And they are not going to wait a hundred years to vent their resentments and frustrations at the humiliating position in which they find themselves.

    Israel's very existence as a modern, prosperous western nation in their midst is a daily slap across the face. Nothing is easier for demagogues than to blame Israel, the United States, or western civilization in general for their own lagging position.

    Hitler was able to rouse similar resentments and fanaticism in Germany under conditions not nearly as dire as those in most Middle East countries today. The proof of similar demagogic success in the Middle East is all around.

    ...

    These are the kinds of people we are talking about getting nuclear weapons. And what of ourselves?

    ...

    Even ruthless conquerors of the past, from Genghis Khan to Adolf Hitler, wanted some tangible gains for themselves or their nations -- land, wealth, dominion. What Middle East fanatics want is the destruction and humiliation of the west.

    Olbie's getting desperate! The segement on Bill O'Reilly was pathetic and to think it was the No.1 story, too. Talk about stretching.

    light up, Francis. even Rome didn't last forever. christ, you people are cowards.

    "There was no corner of the known world where some interest was not alleged to be in danger or under actual attack. If the interests were not Roman, they were those of Rome's allies; and if Rome had no allies, then allies would be invented. When it was utterly impossible to contrive such an interest -- why, then it was the national honor that had been insulted. The fight was always invested with an aura of legality. Rome was always being attacked by evil-minded neighbors, always fighting for a breathing-space. The whole world was pervaded by a host of enemies, and it was manifestly Rome's duty to guard against their indubitably aggressive designs.

    In a similar fashion, the U.S. military-industrial complex has proven quite resourceful in frequently inventing new "external threats to our national interests," or "the interests of our allies," in order to stifle opposition to its militaristic plans that are often designed to justify its colossal apparatus and its lion's share of national resources. During the Cold War years, the "threat of communism" served this purpose. Since then new substitutes for the threat of communism have been discovered in order to rationalize continued expansion of military spending. These have included "rogue states, global terrorism, axis of evil, militant Islam" and, more recently, "enemies of democracy"."

    Wrong. Orange Boy is the subject of discussion here because: 1)he refuses to allow opposing viewpoints that challenge his one sided propaganda 2) he and MSLSD falsely hold out Olby as an "anchor" for a "newscast" when in fact he is a partisan cheeerleader for the Dean//Sheehan/Murtha Leftists. Whether he agrees with Republicans or not is of no interst to me whatsoever.

    Notice this site does not spend much if any time discussing Chris Matthews Chris Matthews rarely agrees with Republicans but at least he has the cojones to bring on guests who will challenge his viewpoint and he doesn't try to pretend he is objective.

    Nice, ghettoqueen.

    Why do I get the feeling that Olbermann thinks that JonBenet deserved what happened to her because she was young, blonde, and pretty? That would be justification for murder in OlbyLand.

    That would be justification for murder in OlbyLand.

    And tell me, O Sage One, how do you reach such a ridiculous and absurd conclusion?

    Because:

    1) Olbermann is nuts;
    2) He has a grudge against young, blonde, and pretty girls;
    3) He has to sympathize with the accused, it's his MO.

    Anon 10:13

    I agree with that story. Libs are losing the fertility race. Abortion plays a big part in it too.

    By the way, I'm raising four little Republicans for our future domination!!!

    NBC must regard this man highly
    He's smart, he's funny, and he's wily
    He's featured each night
    His face in plain sight
    NBC's biggest star is O'Reilly

    Lou Brush:

    Love it, love it, love it!

    Lou, that's a classic!

    1) Olbermann is nuts;
    2) He has a grudge against young, blonde, and pretty girls;
    3) He has to sympathize with the accused, it's his MO.

    There are so many holes in that I don't know where to begin. How about you use some facts, smart guy, instead of just talking out of your ass?

    Bloviatng is Bill O'Reilly's job, not yours.

    Sorry, my ass is on vacation this week and will not be speaking to the media. You wouldn't like the tone it would take with you anyway.

    Bill O. for President!
    Keith O. for first lady!

    Wasn't Dan Abrams engaged to the beautiful but no talented Elisabeth Rohm who used to play the A.D.A. on the uber liberal show Law & Order until she followed in the footsteps of McLean "I'm Going to quit this show and be a big star" Stevenson and ahsn't been heard from since?

    The Scoreboard: 8pm Friday, August 18

    25-54 demographic: (LS)

    1. O'Reilly: 383,000
    2. HLN Grace: 191,000
    3. Zahn: 176,000
    4. Countd.: 110,000

    Total Viewers:

    1. O'Reilly: 1,479,000
    2. Zahn: 632,000
    3. HLN Grace: 617,000
    4. Countd.: 306,000

    Here are some new slogans Airhead Abrams can use to promote Countdown:

    "Countdown: Half the Viewers, so that we may better serve our exclusive clientel"

    "Countdown: Smaller class size means better schooling -- think about it"

    "Countdown: The best-hidden secret in TV News"

    "Be part of an exclusive club: watch Countdown"

    I must clarify this slogan:

    "Countdown: Half the Viewers, so that we may better serve our exclusive clientele"

    Olbermann gets half the viewers of Zahn, not O'Reilly. Of course, this slogan is perfect for Doofy Dan, who can use it non-specifically and imply that his man's ratings are 1/2 of O'Reilly's rather than 1/9th!

    Awesome show last night!!!!!!

    JonBenet story was boring though, I just don't know why this story gets the coverage that it does.

    Loved the O'Reilly segment....couldn't stop laughing.

    The nexus on terror was very interesting. I loved KO's angle on it.......visionary.

    Bushy's approval rating segment- I think you can say........Democrats get the majority in November!!!!!

    "By the way, I'm raising four little Republicans for our future domination!!"

    Sounds like brainwashing to me..

    Actually, the O'Reilly segment was more about the clown being pulled over than BO himself...The guy was cited for excessive noise, doesn't matter if you're listening to music, talk radio, sportstalk, etc., he thought he should be exempt since it wasn't music...Plus, he was one rude piece of trash, the officer was very profesional while putting up with the verbal abuse from this nutcase driver...

    "parsing-based reality" (huh?)"

    I believe what he said was "parsing BASE reality" referring to how, through word games, Bush was creating the world in which the base SHALL believe. Although the neocon leadership contorted into advanced yoga positions to convince the base that there was a link between 9/11 and Iraq, they never said that Iraq ORDERED the attack. It's like the nekkid emporer saying "Love my new wrap?"

    Hey phony "johnny d", get some help. As in: get someome to seal your garage after you start your engine. Remember to INHALE. It shouldn't take long.

    Hey Guys!!
    New poster here!!! It seems that I will fit in beautifully around here! I have a lot of the same views as some of the best posters I've read. Nick, Johnny$, Anonymous, and most definitely the Emporer are all funny and very intelligent.

    Now getting to the show last night...
    The segment on the O'Reilly fan getting pulled over and being a complete a--hole was not funny at all.

    Sometimes I listen to O'Reilly as loud as my old Pick-Up's shitty radio can play him. Whenever I go mud-boggin or n*gger-draggin' I need my homboy with me. I get all pumped-up and peel out, spinnin' my tires, kickin' up a dust-storm, yellin "YEEEEeeeeeeeeee HAAAAaaaaaaaaaaawww!!!" Some a--hole liberal tried to give me shit when I tore up his lawn doin' donuts, so I strangled him with a spare Conferate flag I keep in the front seat.

    Now that O'Reilly's over I have to run and catch the Dukes of Hazzard marathon on CMT.

    BUSHYWUSHY....THE RETURN OF THE MACACCA!

    Abrams has reassigned Opie. Opie's new job at MessNBC

    Test Passenger

    Job Description
    1. Fly on planes with suspected terrorists to see if the terror plots are in deed real.
    2. Socialize with terrorists - both have many things in common and the conversation should be quite cordial.
    3. If terrorist plot not real - write piece on overblown security and spin so it turns out the plot was just a ploy by Mister Bush to prop up ratings
    4, If terrorist plot is real, ut oh. Opie in the drink - his whole life flashes before his eyes - and he realizes his whole career has been a series of failures, firings, on air cheap shots and horrendous ratings. He thinks of his love child to be.
    5. Abrams quickly call Brian Unger to do a special two hour countdown how Mister Bush lead to Opie's demise, why wasn't there more emphasis and importance on the foiled London attacks

    I mean - why waste the talents of a drug/bomb sniffing dog when we have the ultimate terror test weapon- the Opieinator

    Let's see... a multi-pronged attack on BO, wall-to-wall on a sick charlatan liar reviving a 10 year-old cold case, endless re-runs of stale "investigative" reports, E! network lite stirred into the mix, and voila! --- the NEW IMPROVED (soon to be MS-less)NBC cable "news" network.

    It's gold, Jerry, gold!!!!

    Just when I thought Opie was done - as in stick a fork in him - a great new opportunity opened up ideally suited for his indescribable journalistic talents. Al Jazerra is coming to the USA. After this, his 7th failure in journalism - I see an excellent career move for the Keifman Team up with Bryant Gumball. Bryant of "Winter Olympics = no talent because there's no black athletes", "New NFL commish will keep Upshaw on a leash" fame

    This is destiny. The two are meant for each other - and their "achivements" in broadcast excellence is unprecedented.

    The Opie/Gumball hour - On Al-Jazz with Dan Rather an "in the field" correspondent lending credibiity to the "real" news. Connie Chung replacing a band section for live entertainment during the intermissions, and of course the New York Times, now down to a staff of 15, doing the editorializing. Joe Wilson & Valerie Plame will provide security.

    Sometimes career opportunites are too good to pass up - and though MSNBC will probbaly go in the rating cellar without Opie, Al Jazz is his destiny

    Opie can continue to provide the American news as he does, with a fundamentalist Islam Middle East perspective - a perfect fit.

    Don't forget grazing reporter Janeane Garofalo... doesn't she need a job?

    Olbermann is solidly in last place including the ages 25-54 demographic.

    Is Dan Abrams totally in denial about the state of MSNBC? He's moved towards more of a tabloid journalism format, but even there he can't seem to capitalize on the events of the day to gain viewership.

    One problem with giving Opie a job as a flying reporter. He's terrified to fly and has to be heavily tranquilizied to do so.

    Robyn,

    Despite Olbermann's penchant for formulating the most illogical arguments as to how he's "really" moving up in the ratings, despite objective criteria... I don't think he cares about his standing among any demographic but what Howard Fineman labeled as being the Mainstream Media Party.

    The 25-54 demographic that's generally coveted among talking heads is merely a weapon against O'Reilly.

    It's "The Brotherhood" that Keith strives to please...(if Walter Cronkite and company had had something similar to baseball cards, Keith would have collected them...) and he generally does and is allowed to be utterly partisan in a way that would completely shred the credibility of a Tucker Carlson or Joe Scarborough (put them in the Rush Limbaugh camp) among media players.

    It's not that Keith isn't more dogmatic than most of his media colleagues....and if he were in Dan Abrams' place...MSNBC would be Air America....but most of his MSNBC and other media colleagues are liberal enough to tolerate and even applaud a guy who essentially represents a primetime DNC talking point mouthpiece ....mixed with slapdowns against Tom Cruise (or other liberal pariahs of the day...).

    Olbermann really doesn't care about ratings... WWERMD???? (What Would Edgar R. Murrow Do-- as imagined in the light of 21st century Manhattan liberal sensibilities)...

    Good night...and....good luck...

    actually I do think ratings matter a great deal to Olby. This is why he goes after O'Reilly so much because he is insanely jealous of that which O'Reilly has and he does not- ratings. Olby seems like an extremely insecure individual who needs validation and approval, thus the parade of pre-screened guests who will never take issue with anything Olby says, no matter how far fetched and unsupported by facts.

    Though Olby would like better ratings, his demons take over and possess Olby to carry out his personal agendas against conservatives and other persons not to his liking. So, Olby acts out on air in repellant ways further alienating his already puny audience and defeating his desire for ratings like Bill O'Reilly has.

    You people are true idiots. I can't believe you spend your time here. I keep coming back just to see if you still lead off the front page with a saluting Hitler and if this thing is still going...it's like a car accident. Is that how it works? Are you all stopping by here just to see how lame it is today? Website kitsch?

    Anyway, I'll definitely be back. Keep up the good work guys!

    Hey, by the way, did you hear that Keith Olberman is a terrible person and his show has low ratings?!!?! Discuss.

    I am sure Rome had enemies real and imagined. That being said your bullshit doesnt hold up to the facts. Communists proved to be quite a real threat starving millions in Russia, Pol Pot something like 7 million?? China blood purges.Running death count on communism is estimated to be 100 million souls. And militant Islam is hardly a figment of the imagination. What was it like 1 million killed in Iraq/Iran war.Bali, NewYork ,MAdrid,Beirut,Israel,Baghdad, London, etc all attacked by terrorists. Are we on the same planet? This seems pretty real. But you go on pretending and defending and hoping and wishing Prince Charming and go kiss Cindy Sheehan and turn her into a princess because thats your reality. But every day something goes boom. And your weak and feeble posts should embarass you. Your arguments and quotes around words make you seem silly. And if you were right team america would be conquering the world and killing millions instead of feeding and clothing and medicating it. Our country is worth defending!! To bad you dont think so. We are the good guys and your 2 cents worth cant change that.

    I love sites like this. a show challenged the status quo and he's anti american. he criticises Bush so he supports terrorism. He lambasts O'Reilly who has made false, anti semitic and sexist comments so he's obviously a liberal.

    So if he is anti-american for pulling up Bush on his mistakes, what about the right's obsession with Clinton?
    Newsflash folks, Clinton was a bad man and he lied to everyone and had an affair. That is a bad person

    You poor brainwashed dolt. Your so pathetic. You believe the New York Times, Keith Olbermann and the Tooth Fairy. Remember the exit polls for Gore and Kerry? As bogus as any numbers you see in the media today on Reps. But dont vote that day cause they said it was sewn up. LOL. Instead of Rock the Vote. You Liberals had Abort the Vote and it is catching up with you. HEHEHE.

    "You people are true idiots. I can't believe you spend your time here. I keep coming back..."

    hmmmmm.... :D

    I never claimed the media doesn't lie. I do not read any american based media sources for 2 reasons:

    1. American media sources for the most part don't seem to have the balls to challenge what is going on around them and
    2. I'm British. I watch Keith Olbermann online from my home in the UK so I read the London Guardian and a few German papers as I'm bilingual.

    My point was about the insane distortion that the American right has with regards to those who make statements critical to the government or popular right wing commentators.

    Olbermann is not perfect, this much we hold to be true, is it not his right to challenge what he sees as wrong? The reaction of the Bush white house to Katrina for example, Olbermann made a fantastic and well researched editorial about it. This does not make him anti the country. If anything it's his duty as a citizen to do so.

    Theodore Roosevelt said:
    "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

    That's all he's doing. What your own former president said is your duty

    I'll give you some perspective Anthony. Muslims are taking over your bloody country before your eyes!!! Hows that? France is lost and most of mainland western Europe and the Northern countries are occupied by agressive bitter non native born Muslims!! They suck up your social services and breed like lice. Your disarmed (no guns) by your government and they pander for muslim votes at your expense. And you come to this site and defend Olbermann. Your a joke. You got bigger fish to fry. Your just to fucking stupid to know it. Dead "countrymen", you better get used to if you dont have the stomach for killing and i mean lots of it. Think WWII for some perspective!!

    How about Oil for Food.
    Our "Allies" cut deals with Saddam with the help of pardoned by Clinton Marc Rich American hater.
    Why else would Saddam boot the inspectors and DARE us to invade?
    He KNEW he had bought and paid for UN votes. The UN would never vote to invade!!
    FRANCE GERMANY RUSSIA our ALLIES fucked us in the cheese hole!!!!!

    I came on here to defend Olbermann because he is a rare person in your country who should be celebrated not attacked. You have a bigger fish to fry...she's called Ann Coulter!!!

    Muslims are not taking over before my eyes. they sure as hell aren't taking over Germany where I spend a lot of my time. You know what I think when I see people of different backgrounds walking the streets of my city? Good, we live in a diverse society where anyone is free to express their views. Odd that in a nation where diversity is much more evident than here it seems to be frowned upon.
    They are a vocal minority sure. If i was a muslim I'd be steaming right now as well. A few extreme nutjobs subvert and pervert my religion for their own gains to wage a war on another set of ideals...hang on...wait a second. Bush and the so called religious right is doing the same thing! My word, ain't it funny what you can work out on your own without Geraldo Rivera shouting at you from Fox.
    Our country has its problems sure but being disarmed as a country makes me proud to live here. Guns are not a necessity and the constitution of the united states is at least 150 years out of date. Nobody needs a gun, ever! To coin a phrase, live by the gun, die by the gun and i'd rather die from old age than a bullet thank you.
    WW2 for perspective? What perspective? Totally different situations! For one thing, we all knew why we were fighting WW2!
    I can accept that we have differing views. That's cool, life is boring is we all agree. But i feel that your views are ill advised and badly founded.

    Anthony says:

    "He [Olbermann]lambasts O'Reilly who has made false, anti semitic and sexist comments . . ."

    Anthony, you have been landed on OlbyPlanet where logic and facts are as rare as a dissenting guest on Meltdown.

    The one who has the real problem with anti-semitism is Orange Boy. Orange Boy tried to excuse his outrageous public flashing of the Nazi salute to O'Reilly by claiming that O'Reilly "defends Nazis" Of course, Anthony, since you have spent so much time on this site, you are well aware that Olby's excuse was totally false and the bogus nature of Olby's accusation against O'Reilly has been conclusively proven:

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

    OK, so your hero is out there flashing Nazi salutes in public for no good reason. Then, you call the person who is on the receiving end of this symbol of hate [O'Reilly] the one who is anti-semitic?

    --- TODAY'S COVETED WINGNUT DU JOUR AWARD WINNER ---

    Anthony Russell,

    I don't know how things are in the UK, but here when someone puts on the professional mantle of television anchor/journalist, they have an obligation to air both sides of an issue.

    If you're going to claim that the administration is politicizing terror threats, how about letting someone from the administration or someone who refutes that charge, on the air to rebut it. Pundits like Chris Matthews and even Joe Scarborough are responsible enough to do that. As much as Olbermann criticises Fox News as being partisan, their pundits and journals air opposing views.

    Imagine an hour long primetime news program, devoted toward counting down the days to when Clinton had to testify before a grand jury or juxaposing the heads of Supreme Court Justices Gingsberg and Breyer, with the heads of Disney character Grouchy and Dopey (as Countdown did with Justices Scalia and Thomas).

    Olbermann challenges the administration the way Limbaugh challenges his political opponents...and Olbermann runs his show along the lines of The Daily Show. That's fine.... but don't call it journalism and don't confuse Keith with being anything but a partisan critic whose only source of ostinsive balance is the journalists he interviews (It's interesting that Olbermann would have us trust THEIR journalistic professional objectivity while advocating his own political viewpoints).

    If MSNBC gave Rush Limbaugh a primetime slot and called it a new show-- even a news show with a "twist", they'd be skewered in the press, even if Limbaugh did what Olbermann never does, and allowed the folks he accused on air to answer his charges.

    If the DNC prodouced a "news show" it wouldn't be much different from Countdown.

    It's time Olbermann's title was changed to partisan pundit.


    I can accept that we have differing views. That's cool, life is boring is we all agree. But i feel that your views are ill advised and badly founded.

    careful Anthony, you have stumbled into an ugly american den of inequity and illogic. yes, you've entered the RIGHT-WINGNUT-ZONE. all the regulars here are as full of shit and as dumb as rocks as their fearful leader George W. so rest assured, that any time you spend here will be completely wasted. have fun!

    I am sure Rome had enemies real and imagined. That being said your bullshit doesnt hold up to the facts. Communists proved to be quite a real threat starving millions in Russia, Pol Pot something like 7 million?? China blood purges.Running death count on communism is estimated to be 100 million souls. And militant Islam is hardly a figment of the imagination. What was it like 1 million killed in Iraq/Iran war.Bali, NewYork ,MAdrid,Beirut,Israel,Baghdad, London, etc all attacked by terrorists. Are we on the same planet? This seems pretty real. But you go on pretending and defending and hoping and wishing Prince Charming and go kiss Cindy Sheehan and turn her into a princess because thats your reality. But every day something goes boom. And your weak and feeble posts should embarass you. Your arguments and quotes around words make you seem silly. And if you were right team america would be conquering the world and killing millions instead of feeding and clothing and medicating it. Our country is worth defending!! To bad you dont think so. We are the good guys and your 2 cents worth cant change that.

    Anthony about Katrina: From Popular Mechanics

    MYTH: "The aftermath of Katrina will go down as one of the worst abandonments of Americans on American soil ever in U.S. history."--Aaron Broussard, president, Jefferson Parish, La., Meet the Press, NBC, Sept. 4, 2005

    REALITY: Bumbling by top disaster-management officials fueled a perception of general inaction, one that was compounded by impassioned news anchors. In fact, the response to Hurricane Katrina was by far the largest--and fastest-rescue effort in U.S. history, with nearly 100,000 emergency personnel arriving on the scene within three days of the storm's landfall.

    Dozens of National Guard and Coast Guard helicopters flew rescue operations that first day--some just 2 hours after Katrina hit the coast. Hoistless Army helicopters improvised rescues, carefully hovering on rooftops to pick up survivors. On the ground, "guardsmen had to chop their way through, moving trees and recreating roadways," says Jack Harrison of the National Guard. By the end of the week, 50,000 National Guard troops in the Gulf Coast region had saved 17,000 people; 4000 Coast Guard personnel saved more than 33,000.

    These units had help from local, state and national responders, including five helicopters from the Navy ship Bataan and choppers from the Air Force and police. The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries dispatched 250 agents in boats. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), state police and sheriffs' departments launched rescue flotillas. By Wednesday morning, volunteers and national teams joined the effort, including eight units from California's Swift Water Rescue. By Sept. 8, the waterborne operation had rescued 20,000.

    While the press focused on FEMA's shortcomings, this broad array of local, state and national responders pulled off an extraordinary success--especially given the huge area devastated by the storm. Computer simulations of a Katrina-strength hurricane had estimated a worst-case-scenario death toll of more than 60,000 people in Louisiana. The actual number was 1077 in that state.

    And Anthony its a shame you think diversity is a skin color and not diversity of thought as you dismiss the religious right out of hand.

    For Anthony:
    From a fellow European:

    "Robert Spencer and Hugh Fitzgerald of Jihad Watch have a nickname for newspaper the New York Times, which they prefer to call “the New Duranty Times” owing to what they perceive as its poor coverage of the global Islamic jihad. The name, of course, comes from Walter Duranty, former Pulitzer Prize winner and Moscow correspondent for The New York Times in the 1930s. Duranty repeatedly denied the existence of a Ukrainian famine in 1932–33. In an article in NYT, August 24 1933, he claimed “any report of a famine is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda,” while millions of people were dying. According to Spencer and Fitzgerald, this spirit of denial seems to be alive and well at the NYT 70 years later.

    In the New York Times May 10, 2006, Alan Cowell wrote an article from Sweden entitled “An Economy With Safety Features, Sort of Like a Volvo.” Now, in all fairness, Mr. Cowell does mention potential problems in Sweden, not the least that massive immigration is rapidly changing what was once a very ethnically homogeneous nation state. “Up to 10 years ago it was very homogeneous as a country. Everything was very alike. Up until then all Swedes looked the same; almost thought the same. Because we are all so equal, we can share the pain of the problems.” However, at the same time Cowell indicates that Scandinavia may need even more immigration to finance its welfare state, and quotes a report by the European Policy Center, a research institute in Brussels, saying that “Scandinavia’s “negative approach towards immigration” might “represent the biggest threat to the long-term survival” of the Nordic model, since Scandinavian economies need “a constant flux of foreign talent and workers in general.” Still, despite these objections, Cowell concludes that “the economy prospers — even though taxes here remain high and big government administers cradle-to-grave social programs that absorb more than half of the national output” and that “compared with some other parts of Europe, there is still some optimism here.” This is sloppy journalism. If Cowell had done anything more than scratching the surface, he would have found that Europe is in the midst of massive waves of Muslim immigration that are in the process of transforming the continent into a post-Western entity some call “Eurabia.” Sweden is one of the leading countries in this process, quite possibly the worst of them all, and yet freedom of speech in debating these topics in public has become de facto so curtailed that one could question whether Sweden in 2006 is still a functioning democracy.

    Cowell states that “Sweden’s official unemployment rate of 4.8 percent, many economists say, is distorted by the omission of people in government-financed retraining programs. The labor unions calculate the real figure at closer to 8 percent.” In fact, some Swedes believe that the real unemployment rate may be three times as big as even this higher estimate. Hans Karlsson, a leftwing heavyweight, concluded that true unemployment was more in the ballpark of 20-25%, not 5% as the government was claiming. Even the official numbers show that the Swedish economic model is in serious trouble. Young adults born in the 1980’s have an appreciably lower standard of living in Sweden than older generations. We can already see some major cracks in the Swedish welfare state. Sweden is struggling to pay the bills for the tens of thousands of workers on long-term disability and an expanding group of young people leaving the workforce altogether on so-called “early retirement.” 500,000 people are on early retirement in Sweden today, 68,000 of whom are between the ages of 20 and 40. “If the sick-leave levels in Sweden really were an indicator of how sick we are, we would be facing a plague here,” as one commentator put it.


    More immigrants should be allowed into Sweden in order to safeguard the welfare system. That’s the view of Pär Nuder, Sweden’s finance minister. However, in reality estimates indicate that immigration costs Sweden at least 40 to 50 billion Swedish kroner every year, probably several hundred billions, and has greatly contributed to bringing the Swedish welfare state to the brink of bankruptcy. An estimated cost of immigration of 225 billion Swedish kroner in 2004, which is not unlikely, would equal 17.5% of Sweden’s tax income that year, a heavy burden in a country where the overall tax burden between 1990 and 2005 on average was 61%, almost one and a half times the OECD average.

    In neighboring Denmark, right-wing politicians are already debating the threat of a spillover of immigrant “welfare tourists,” should the Swedish system collapse. At the same time, statistics indicate that native Scandinavians will become a minority in their own countries within a couple of generations, if the current immigration trends continue. One thousand years ago Scandinavians were the barbarians of Europe, spreading fear and extracting “Danegeld” from their more civilized neighbors. In the 21st century Scandinavians are peaceful and soft-spoken, and the roles seem to have been reversed with certain newly arrived immigrants. While their political elites insist that immigration is “good for the economy,” Scandinavians are in reality funding their own colonization. Although the cost of welfare is significant, it pales in comparison to the price paid through rapidly declining social harmony and increasing insecurity caused by Muslim immigration. Some of the increase in insecurity is due to the rise of mafia groups and organized crime, but most is mainly due to terror threats and intimidation of critics of Islam and Muslim immigration.

    But if Sweden is such a paradise, why are so many people angry with their politicians? Perhaps there is something going on beneath the surface? Maybe ordinary citizens feel that the political elites don’t want to deal with the issues they care about? Sweden is a semi-totalitarian country. It’s all about façade. On the surface, Sweden is a tolerant nation and peaceful democracy. In reality, there is massive media censorship by a closed elite that is scared of having a debate about immigration. Opinion polls have revealed that two out of three Swedes doubt whether Islam can be combined with Swedish society, and a very significant proportion of the population have for years wanted more limitations on immigration.
    Ethnologist Maria Bäckman, in her study “Whiteness and gender,” has followed a group of Swedish girls in the suburb of Rinkeby outside Stockholm, where native Swedes have been turned into a tiny minority of the inhabitants due to rapid immigration. The subjects of the study were “teenage girls, living in the suburbs, who are identified both by themselves and by others as Swedish. But they are Swedes living in what is usually called an immigrant suburb. Thus they are seen as different.” “They may encounter prejudices such as the idea that Swedish girls act and dress in a sexually provocative way or that blonde girls are easy.” Bäckman relates that several of the girls she interviewed stated that they had dyed their hair to avoid unwanted attention and sexual harassment. They experienced that being blonde involves old men staring at you, cars honking their horns and boys calling you “whore.” We thus have a situation where being blonde in certain areas of Sweden means being a target of harassment. The Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten visited Rinkeby to find out if the rumors were true. They spent several hours there, in a suburb of the Swedish capital, without finding a single blonde, Swedish girl. Almost all the inhabitants there are of immigrant background. Virtually none of them referred to themselves as Swedish, they usually said they came from somewhere else. Many of them also asked the journalists questions about Swedes, to hear what they are like. They thought Swedes were idiots, but they hardly ever met any of them.

    A report from organization Save the Children tells of how being a young Swedish girl today means feeling unsafe. The girls are scared of being raped, a possibility that appears very real to them. Many girls are planning how to go home at night, how to pretend to be talking on the mobile phone, how to keep their keys in their hand to defend themselves or how to simply run all the way home. Both the fear and the choice of strategies indicate that many girls feel genuinely unsafe outdoors during certain hours of the day. The fear is well founded. A striking number of girls have experienced harassment from boys or men. Most frequently, the harassment comes from boys of the same age as the girls. Being called “whore” has become so common in some schools that several of the girls say the teachers no longer react to this.

    “It is not as wrong raping a Swedish girl as raping an Arab girl,” says Hamid, in an interview about another gang rape involving a Swedish girl and immigrant perps. “The Swedish girl gets a lot of help afterwards, and she had probably f**ked before, anyway. But the Arab girl will get problems with her family. For her, being raped is a source of shame. It is important that she retains her virginity until she marries.”“It is far too easy to get a Swedish whore…… girl, I mean;” says Hamid, and laughs over his own choice of words. “Many immigrant boys have Swedish girlfriends when they are teenagers. But when they get married, they get a proper woman from their own culture who has never been with a boy. That’s what I am going to do. I don’t have too much respect for Swedish girls. I guess you can say they get f**ked to pieces.” The number of rape charges in Sweden has quadrupled in just above twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six times as common today as they were a generation ago. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm, who has investigated violent crimes in one court, found that 85 per cent of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or by foreign parents.


    The above and much more on the shape of Europe can be read at The Gates of Vienna. It keeps running tab on Europes headlong slide into Eurabia. Hey Anthony welcome to diversity. HEHEHE. And Anthony how come people like you mention Bush and dead countrymen and never muslims and dead countrymen? Are you Jihadi ?
    Or a usefull idiot.

    You've got the floor and this is all you can think of? A little high during debate were we??
    Your so dumb you make KO seem bright.

    A little high during debate were we??

    At least he's better than most of you jerks, who decide that ALLEGATIONS without PROOF are legitimate arguments.

    More from Eurabia? Sure. In honor of Anthony.

    At least 139 schools in Sweden suffered arson attacks during 2002 alone. Björn Vinberg from the fire department in Kroksbäck in the Malmö area says it’s humiliating and degrading to put out fires again and again in the same immigrant areas, with school kids laughing at them and lighting a new one just afterwards. His colleagues have been to the same place no less than twenty times, all totally unnecessary. In the spring of 2006, a section of a school in Malmö was decided to be closed, due to “lack of security" “It’s the first time a school in Sweden has been closed because it is too rowdy,” said Jan Björklund, who saw the decision as giving in to discipline problems.Meanwhile, as their authorities have largely abandoned their third largest city to creeping anarchy, there is open talk among the native Swedes still remaining in Malmö of forming vigilante groups, armed with baseball bats and concern for their children’s safety. At the same time, Muslim immigration to the country is not just continuing, but growing. Sweden’s population was growing faster in 2006 than at any time during the last twelve years. Statistics Sweden calculated that immigration increased by almost 85% compared with the first quarter the previous year. Most of these people came from Muslim countries such as Iraq, Somalia and Bosnia Herzegovinia.
    What happened to the famous Swedish nanny state, you say? Don’t Swedes pay the highest tax rates in the world? Yes, they do. But tens of billions of kroner, some say several hundred billions, are being spent every year on propping up rapidly growing communities of Muslim immigrants. Sweden has become the entire world’s welfare office, because the political elites have decided that massive Muslim immigration is “good for the economy.” Pretty soon, Sweden could have an “army” of just 5000 men. That’s five thousand troops to defend a nation that is geographically more than three times the size of England.In 2006, the celebrated Swedish welfare state has become the world’s largest pyramid scheme, an Enron with a national flag. Just as the country was in the midst of the worst crime wave in modern Scandinavian history, with a desperately underfunded police force, the Swedish Social Democrats announced that cheaper public dental care would be a major issue in the election campaigns. There could hardly be a better symbol of Europe’s love affair with the welfare state and “social security” in an age where physical security is rapidly disappearing through runaway Muslim immigration. “Eurabia: You may get your teeth kicked in, but at least you have cheap dental care” could become the slogan for the entire continent. The Swedish elites, especially the Socialists who are supposed to represent “the people,” seem to care little for the well-being of their own citizens, and much more for clinging on to power and polishing their image abroad.

    Ok genius you too. The balls in your court and thats your statement of record? Your sides losing badly. No surprise with you 2 on the team.

    Keith finally makes fifth place in all important 25-54 demo last night. Good work Dan!!

    Oh this is so funny KO show was just interupted for a news conference for attorneys for that Karr Guy..So MSNBC thinks a pedophille will get more ratings than KO..HA HA HA

    Ok genius you too. The balls in your court and thats your statement of record?

    Keith is a Palestinian sympathizer.
    Keith is a terrorist sympathizer.
    Keith has a grudge against pretty, young, blonde girls.

    And that's just from this thread. I could go back a day, a week, a month and find many more statements like this. All "claims", but lacking anything resembling evidence. And don't tell me I have to disprove it - the side that makes the claim has to prove it. Or did you sleep through Debate prep 101?

    "...ALLEGATIONS without PROOF are legitimate arguments"

    THAT'S KEITH, TO A T!!!!!

    I only went as far as logic. That doesnt seem to be a hinderance when speaking with you.

    By the way, Mr."Debate prep 101", did you sleep through 3rd grade spelling yourself? It's hindrance not "hinderance". Thanks for your participation...

    Damn thought i invented a new word.

    By the way, Mr."Debate prep 101", did you sleep through 3rd grade spelling yourself? It's hindrance not "hinderance".

    Wrong anonymous. I also like how you neatly sidestepped my argument completely to pick on someone else's spelling mistake.

    Brian Stelter of TVNewser is hiding the fact that Countdown finished 5th in his demo on Tuesday. On Monday's ratings chart, CNBC is there. On Tuesday's ratings chart, CNBC is gone.

    I just checked this out and it's completely true. Does this TVNewser kid actually think he can get away with this?

    Anonymous(probably a pedophile)said:

    You might be interested to know the party of vote early vote often has started to make excusions for november already. Not surprising when your platform is Abortion, Submission, High Taxes, Bad Schools,etc.

    Interesting comment from an ignorant toad-

    Abortion- more like the right to chose.

    Submission- Huh? Your thoughts on your last bondage session have no place here.

    High Taxes - As opposed to high gas prices and high medical costs, raise in crime, increase in poverty, tax cuts for the rich, no raise in the minimum wage, and.............a war that is driving us closer to a recession.

    Bad Schools- No child left behind.....here's an idea for ya, you asshat. Ask any teacher, school administrator about the nol child left behind act.......and then they will tell why every teachers union endorsed John Kerry during the last election. Oh and another thing, under the Clinton Administration(the glorious 8 years-best president in the last 50 years) more people went to college than any other president in the history of our country. Under Bush, you have a president who has taken away opportunities for people to get into college and as we all know, while he was governor was 49th out of 50th in education......beating out only.......(drum roll please).........Mississippi. Sooooo go back to your hole and listen to your Sean Hannity, Bill O'Leilly and Rushy........ty to get your FACTS straight.

    Great show last night KO- GREAT job of informing the public on the misgivings, lies, and ignorance of our current goverment regime.

    By the way MR. Anonymous........you're views are in the minority!!!!
