    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    August 1, 2006
    COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN - AUGUST 1, 2006

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

    Host: Keith Olbermann

    Topics/Guests:

    • MEL GIBSON'S DUI AND APOLOGY TO THE JEWISH COMMUNITY: Harvey Levin, managing editor of TMZ.com; Jackie Mason, comedian

    Keith Olbermann certainly has his priorities straight. Mel Gibson was the lead story on The Hour of Spin. As Countdown went to air at 8:00 pm, Israeli troops were reportedly engaged in a virulent firefight at a Bekaa Valley hospital. The war in the Middle East took a huge turn this evening, but Olby had bigger fish to fry: Mel Gibson.

    Bear in mind that Krazy Keith has a dog in this fight. He's already declared that Mel's kareer is kaput, and so we can expect Countdown to mirror that spin. The first Olby interview was with "top newsmaker" Harvey Levin of the celebrity gossip page tmz.com. Next came Jackie Mason. Bear in mind that even though Mason was on during the first program block, he had already been promoed twice by KO, who insisted that:

    He does not think any of this is funny.

    Herr Olbermann was clearly playing up what was going to be righteous outrage from Mason, playing right into Olby's frame from Monday: "Mel's career is over". So what did Jackie have to say?

    I think it's a big hullabaloo about nothing. The man was drunk. You never hold people responsible for every word they say when they're drunk. People when they're drunk start cursing their mother, their brother, they want to say I want to make love to my sister.... Whatever his subconscious, deep in his head, came out when he's drunk, I don't take that seriously.

    Jackie quickly took over the segment, going after celebrities like Russell Crowe, and heaping praise on Pat Boone. Olby managed to squeeze in a question while Jackie was taking a breath:

    Give me your reaction to this idea that, that, that, uh, Mel Gibson would be, would be speaking at the Yom Kippur services in a synagogue in, in Hollywood, and that the Anti Defamation League has already said it accepts the apology, does it end here, is there, what, is there more...?

    Jackie Mason's classic reply is one that probably went completely over Olby's toupeed head, but as you read his words think about the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann and his olbsession with a certain cable news competitor:

    People love to see a big star suffer. When you become too successful it brings out all the jealousy, and all the envy and the bitterness... and as soon as they do something wrong they love to jump on it--it becomes a beehive of activity. People become like maniacs. It becomes a whole tribal fascination to see if they could bury him for nothing. Because all of a sudden you're superior; all of a sudden he's the victim. All of a sudden you feel like you're the star. You could bury a star, that makes you a sensation. People love the feeling. It's a power trip for every schmuck in the world.

    These words were spoken shortly after Keith (aka The Schmuck) read his first promo for O'Reilly Attack #103, scheduled for later in the "news" hour.

    World news got bumped back to the #4 slot, and at that via a taped report courtesy of the NBC mothership. The war in the Middle East was covered for all of three minutes. Oddball followed, and in the #3 segment KO found time for a little more hard news: Castro and Cuba, the Iran crisis, and Iraq ("the bottomless pit"). Shapeshifter pundit Howard Fineman was there to serve as Olby's Echo. KO pulled out an old Bush campaign statement that just happens to be circulating onthe blue blogs (he should at least try not to be so obvious) and tried to make it into a contradiction. Total time for this segment: 8 minutes.

    In the #2 segment, more breaking news: 25 years of MTV (recycled NBC video). That's really going to steal those smart, educated people away from Fox, ain't it Dan? This was followed by the O'Reilly attack (where Olby bashed Bill's book, which he hasn't read yet, by selectively quoting from someone else's review), Madonna, Peter Gammons, and Mel Gibson Puppet Theater. In the "nonpartisan" Media Matters Minute, "comedian Rush Limbaugh" was "worst" for no good reason (It was something about how civilian deaths are necessary to stop terror. If the "rule" is that there can never be civilian deaths, then it is impossible to defeat terrorists. Like we said: no good reason.)

    We are beginning to see changes in The Hour of Spin. On Monday's edition, hard news represented less than half of the program; the rest was devoted to Lindsay Lohan, Mel Gibson, Katie Couric, and Michael Musto. Tonight, serious news didn't even make the "front page" of the broadcast. There was 11 minutes of substance, and the rest of the hour consisted of celebrities, pop culture, and tabloidism.

    This is not unique to Countdown. Joe Scarborough's program, originally similar in content to The O'Reilly Factor, has of late turned heavily to tabloid fare. And the ratings for those segments have perked up a bit, despite forcing a bright guy like Joe to talk about noxious trivia. Has Dan Abrams, in an effort to stop the downward spiral of Countdown ratings, decided to "spice up" the content with an overdose of celebrities, tabloid stories, and pop culture news? Have we just identified Abrams's Master Plan to save A-Mess-NBC from its voyage to the bottom of the ratings barrel?

    Not that we're complaining, mind you. The less time Herr Olbermann spends on substance, the less damage he, as America's most dangerous demagogue, can inflict. It will be fun to see how The Future of Television, the reincarnation of Edward R Murrow himself, deals with this in the days ahead.

    * Olbermann opens with an interview of Harvey Levin about the Mel Gibson story (with a teaser for the upcoming puppet show theatre)

    * O'Reilly opens with an interview of Secretary of State Condaleeza Rice about the Isreali/Hezbollah conflict in the Middle East

    And Olbermann is STILL losing in the ratings???

    OUTRAGEOUS!!!

    Jackie Mason should replace Olbernut!

    how much damage can countdown do if it only has 200,000-400,000 viewers and fox has over 1-2 million viewers?? and how is he America's most dangerous demagogue?? its not like hes #1 or #2 in the ratings

    How much damage can KO do? Now that is a good question. Does he have enough influence to sway an election? No. Influence some moonbats? No. He just picks up talking points and spins his own take on them. Moonbats can't be swayed they are already nuts. Pick up chicks? Apperently yes to this one. Hmmm. Well it is a good question anyhow. Many many answers.

    Hey RCox or Johnny Dollar,
    It looks like mt attacks on Olbermann's support of Islamo-Fascism is getting to him. He actually called Hizbollah a "terrorist Sate within a state."
    You guys got to him, he finally had on a non-Leftist! Jackie Mason who took over his program and said opinions contrarian to Olbernut's illogic.
    Olbermanwatch is working!
    Keep up the good work everybody posting here, we're getting to him!

    Wow -- Didn't anyone on the Countdown staff realize that Jackie Mason is a Republican who often collaborates with New York attorney Raoul Felder to write articles for The American Spectator? Heads could roll for this oversight.

    (Of course, after going months and months without having a conservative Republican as a guest, the cynical, alternative theory is Keith and crew thought they could put Mason on tonight, because he would surely rip Mel Gibson a new one, thereby satisfying both the host's feelings in this situation, and his desire to be able to point to his critics and say Countdown books more than just guests who are liberal 100 percent of the time).

    Keith Olbermann is the new Mike Tyson! An ignorant fool!

    Please, help. Does Miss Odormann wear a hair piece? Thank you.

    Jackie Mason is hilairious. Olbermann was fuming. Funny to see.

    Tom,

    According to "Karmabites," Keith's hair is real. His orange hue, however, is quite fake.

    On another note, Danny Abrams started out saying he was going to make MSLSD the first choice for news when he took over. Now he is turning the station into a poor version of E! Entertainment television. What a disaster.

    Bill's with the Secretary of State
    While Keith ponders Mel Gibson's fate
    And NBC wonders why
    Keith's ratings aren't high
    The ratings Keith likes to inflate

    Olby got fooled tonight. Man, Jackie Mason destroyed Olby logic tonight. Will Olby fire whoever booked Mason?

    I was rolling on the floor after the Mason segment.!!!!!

    I'm betting that Jackie Mason (who is very politically aware) deliberately set Olby up for this segment. He probably had the booking agent fooled into thinking he was going to blast Mel Gibson, so he could get on the show.

    Way to go Jackie Mason. You the man!!!!!!

    Ha Ha Ha!!!!!!

    Best thing I've seen in a Looooooooonnnnnngggg time!!!

    Obviously the dim one thought Jackie Mason was gonna blast Gibson from the jewish perspective. Surprise!! Klueless Keith was caught with his pants down and the entire segment was nothing more than two monlogues with only one being insightful and interesting.

    When I saw Jackie Mason was gona be on I said, Does Keith know what he's in for? Jackie does fill in work once in a while on NY radio. Keith still probibly doesn't know what hit em'. I hope somebody posts that clip somewhere. I doubt Keith would want that on the Meltdown Video Roster.

    Just how obsessed has Keith become? Start bashing a book that doesn't come out until Sept.25th!

    Just how obsessed has Keith become? Start bashing a book that doesn't come out until Sept.25th!

    We could the same thing about some of you, since KO's book doesn't come out until September 18th and (as of 8/1) no professional reviews of it have been published. So the only reason you trash the book is not because it's a bad book, but because it's Keith Olbermann's book.

    aint it funny when they use stewy from family guy to say bill come here as i will soil on your head ha that always makes me laugh.

    worst person in the world bill lol
    why you watching his show?
    if you want keith to fail

    If you saw the poll representing the intelligence of a typical msnbc viewer and you were dan abrams, wouldn't you alter your programming and de-emphasize serious news.

    KO and Bill O. draw about 2.5 million viewers combined. That's less than 1% of the US population.
    You folks sure get worked up over insignificant matters like ratings and Keith's hair!

    Keith Olbermann, "America's most dangerous demagogue" ??? PLEASE!!!

    Jackie Mason said: "It's a power trip for every schmuck in the world."

    Keith's guest is calling him a schmuck? Now that's funny.

    "KO and Bill O. draw about 2.5 million viewers combined. That's less than 1% of the US population."

    Why bring O'Reilly into this? How about saying:

    "Olbermann draws about 300,000 people a night total, which is 0.1% of the population of the United States."

    That makes your stupid argument a little more compelling. Keep posting at a site you find superfluous dummy.

    It's a hoot when Keith looks directly into the camera and blast a CBS'er for not speaking of Huntley-Brinkley with reverence. Ironic any credibility H/B brought to NBC - Opie is systematically dismantiling.

    Almost looks like he is going to cry when those big eyebrows stare right into the camera and he Musto's up all the feigned indignation. I mean, this is hollyowood at it' best. Yeah keith , we want the truth but we can't handle the truth - so we get you

    Huntley, Brinlkly, Brokaw, Russert and... Olbermann???? What are Abrams, NBC News and GE thinking???

    Hey Russert & Brian Williams - please give me more information on what is wrong with America.

    300,000 couldn't we give that a 0.01%?

    Sometimes I wonder about Loons, Keith thrashes the New Bill O'Reilly book that doesn't come out until Sept. And a Loon(who doesn't use a name) tries to post something about us trashing Keith's book?

    Maybe we should show compassion and start the LOON Education fund?

    It's terrible to see a mind short circut on a daily basis.

    And constantly buliding on that impecible resume with 105 attacks on O'Reilly, Nazi salutes, I can buy you and sell you e-mails,

    American journalism 2006 - Olbermann the "anchor" of an 8:00 NBC News program, THE centerpiece of the NBC News franchise.

    American, please tune in every night at 8:00 to watch a once esteemed news organization, NBC, self destruct before your very eyes. The best reality TV ever conceived.

    KO: I AM the centerpiece, dammit. Say whatever you want about my itinerant career, that's one thing you can't take away from me-- I am the centerpiece!!! Danny Boy says I'm the centerpiece and he is the GM so that makes it so. Don't you wish you were a centerpiece? Suzy Kolber, Bob Ley, Dan Patrick, Aaron Brown and all those other losers and wannabes that I used to work with aren't centerpieces, and don't you know it just royally burns their ass, that I the Keithmeister, am the centerpiece. Centerpiece, Centerpiece, Centerpiece, I AM the centerpiece!!!

    Keith's Shrink: OK, Mr. Olbermann, I think our time is up for today. How are you doing on your meds, do you need any refills?

    KO: Nah, don't need 'em. Couple of martinis has the same effect. See ya, doc.

    Nicely done, hank. As I read that I instantly pictured Adrian Monk talking to his exasperated shrink!

    I wonder if Keith asked Jackie Mason about the humor behind a Nazi salute? Did he mention that at all? After all, he was just trying to liven things up a bit

    In the past, Olby would only have on a conservative or a Republican that was going to go against the President, or the Republican base, or olby's unique anti-Christian spin on things. This has been his way of saying that he does have conservatives or Republicans on. Now that Jackie Mason has upset that strategy, what will Olby do? Only pre-tape Republicans? Make them sign an affidavit about what they will say on the show?

    Olby doesn't like being crossed like this, he will make sure it doesn't happen again.

    Being a little left of center myself, even I am beginning to find Keith too much.
    He's stopped being entertaining long ago and does more damage to the Liberal cause than perhaps even O'Reilly.

    Oh . . . the Jackie Mason bit . . . hilarious and so embarrassing . . . couldn't you just feel Keith's pain?

    One more thing . . . after his classic interview with Jackie Mason last evening . . . maybe instead of calling him Krazy Keith we should call him the Wile E. Coyote of Cable TV news?

    Jerry-

    I'm no fan of the liberal cause, but think its case deserves to be made in a lucid, articulate forum. That's why I hope that Tucker finds a more legitimate spot in the lineup. He regularly had coherent, thoughtful liberals such as Rachel Maddow and Max Kellerman on his show to debate topics. I found it enlightening. While I still didn't agree with them, at least I understood where they were coming from. The exchanges were friendly and civil, and gave the audience a fair view of both sides of the political spectrum (even though Tucker is technically a libertarian). I have no idea why MSNBC shies away from a balanced political show and favors poor attempts at comedy and celebrity gossip. Believe it or not, I find Chris Matthews to be, while clearly liberal, pretty balanced. I guess I need to start a Tucker blog. My wife finds him to be dreamy...maybe she could do it.

    My my, anonymous, what a compelling argument you make.

    These are the voyages of one Olbyloving Moonbat. His mission, to boldly and disgustingly waste his time seeking out excrement where only the homeless have gone before.

    Is Shatner a Republican? That would explain the lack of talent if it were true.

    Chuck Norris (R)
    Ronald Reagon Republican (R)


    Sean Penn (D)
    Tim Robbins (D)
    Steven Spielburg (D)

    No Denying the democrats have more talent.

    Johnny Dollar: I hate Keith Olbermann! I - HATE KEITH - OLBERMANN!!!! Devil Bunny! Devil Bunny!

    Johnny's Shrink: Jesus Christ you are batshit crazy. were you toilet trained at gunpoint?

    Johnny Dollar: hate Olbermann. Olbermann Liberal! Liberal bad!! conservative good! (Starts Fomaing at the mouth)

    Johnny's Shrink: (smacks Johnny in the head.) That doesn't help but it sure feels good... Now where the hell is hank? He's late for his slot.

    You've obviously read and ripped off my post from 8/2 at 1:32 pm. Thank you for flattering me with your attempt (as weak as it was) to imitate me.

    Hey "talentguy,"

    Who are Ronald Reagon and Steven Spielburg?

    You ever wonder why all the Hoolywood crowd is liberal? My guess is those who might be conservative fear being blacklisted like Tom Selleck was when he came out of the conservative closet, or like Charleton Heston was. Ironic that the uber-lefties all hated McCarthy, yet currently employ his tactics!

    I just think it is a talent issue.

    You've obviously read and ripped off my post from 8/2 at 1:32 pm. Thank you for flattering me with your attempt (as weak as it was) to imitate me.

    Mine was far funnier. That is the difference.

    Your post was about as funny as it was original.

    I guess orginality and creativity is a lot to ask of loonies who think that a picture of a pile of shit is a substitute for a substantive argument.

    Well you know, when you argue with an idot you tend to descend to their level.

    I guess orginality and creativity

    i have yet to see it from the right. I was showing you how it is done.

    God bless Jackie Mason! It is so refreshing to hear someone famous speak the truth on the air. All the media seems to be good for is stirring up anger and creating racism and bigotry where there is none. Mel said something stupid and sincerely apologized. He is not someone who is afraid to say what he believes and would not have apologized if he didn't mean it. I saw the interview with Jackie Mason at 12:30am. I only wish they would show it again during prime time!

    Spielburg?

    Oh, my, now Olbermann will think YOU are a Nazi.
