    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    August 5, 2006
    MSM KO Bandwagon #114

    Ed Bark of The Dallas Morning News does a "balanced" version of a KO puff piece where a TV Critic actually mentions Keith's puny ratings and references his pattern of instability.

    Today in Dallas, Olbermann is the righteous Howard "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore" Beale without the "clinical depression, delusions, hallucinations". Keith has "demonstrated bridge-burning Beale zeal", "found his niche", "professes himself content", "having a grand time", "twitting conservatives", "brandishes a cardboard O'Reilly mask". Countdown is getting beat by O'Reilly but..."the margin between the "Factor" and "Countdown" narrows significantly with the principal news target audience of 25-to-54-year-olds.

    The O'Reilly mask stunt is mentioned but (surprise!) there's no mention of the Olbermann Nazi Salute.

    Once again the dog not barking is how, once again, with a limited amount of column space with which cover the three week long TCA conference - an event at which hundreds of shows were promoted and thousands of interviews given - that yet another TV Critic has found the time and space to devote a lengthy piece to the host of one of the lowest rated "primetime" shows in all of television.

    Of course not all TV critics are spending their time writing an homage to Keith. Some are too busy attacking Glenn Garvin of The Miami Herald for outing them on their "walkout" on Fox News chief Roger Ailes.

    Hmmm. Let's see if we detect a pattern here. The TV critics all laugh when Keith puts on a Bill O'Reilly mask and gives the infamous Olbermannn Nazi Salute. They walk out on Roger Ailes. And write near daily love notes to Keith while playing up the supposed "feud" with O'Reilly.

    Do you think we might someday see a TV Critic or any journalist at a major paper write a piece that questions or challenges Olbermann's behavior or his apparent aim of building an audience by becoming the Don Rickles of cable news? Whether they ever examine the many preposterous claims put forth by Olbermann and the MSNBC PR department about this supposed "ratings growth" and "success". Will the day ever come when we see a column exploring the knowingly false and malicious claims made by Olbermann. Do you think we might ever see a story that reports what many folks in the business know about Keith's history of mental instability? Will a reporter every do the math on Keith's claim to have down 218 consecutive shows on Clinton-Lewinsky when, according to John Gibson, he was repeatedly AWOL from the show, hiding under his desk or at home hiding in his bathtub? Will they then ask how this behavior somehow demonstrates that he is not a liberal? Might the day ever come when someone questions the wisdom of allowing Keith to play the clown and what the impact of that might be on the "trust relationship" between NBC News and their viewers over the long-term? Is it possible that just ONE TV critic could write a piece on the Olbermann - O'Reilly "feud" that presents the "feud" from O'Reilly's point of view?

    In other words, do you think we will ever see a story on Olbermann in a major American newspaper that comes at the subject from anything other than a "wink wink nod nod" perspective?

    When you really understand just how the TV Critics Association and its members (most not all) inject their cultural and political ideology of cynicism into their flacking reporting you start to see why shows and networks with a liberal political and cultural agenda are constantly boosted in their columns while those on the other side of the political fence are constantly derided.

    At least this writer didn't use the term "feud" to describe Keith's derangement, affliction or obsession with O'Reilly.

    But to add to what Mr. Cox highlighted, above, what's with this? "We have to take more chances," Olbermann says of MSNBC. "We're up against two competitors."

    Well isn't EVERYONE on TV up against AT LEAST TWO COMPETITORS? What's so unique about that? We've had three major networks forever, and with cable, internet, satellite, there's tons of competition to go around at this time in history.

    But he's really up against three direct competitors, isn't he? O'Reilly and Paula, PLUS Nancy Grace. I wonder when he'll start attacking them?

    He does have two competitors...

    Nancy Grace and Donny Deutsch

    or maybe...

    Bozo the Clown and Sideshow Bob

    or maybe...

    irrellevance and ill-repute

    Seig Heil, everyone.

    Older-man is in last place ... behind O'Reilly, CNN, Nancy Grace, everyone. Why is that so hard to understand.

    It's truly entertaining to watch people spin the 25-54 demographic. Last is last.

    Keith is #1 in our demographic.

    We Jihadis love Keith Olbermann. He demoralizes the American public and attacks the Zionist pigs.
    We hate jews, but we love NY Jews like him that hate Israel. He serves our purpose.

    Hey brother Nasrallah,
    I love Keith too. I live him so much that when I release audio tapes, I mimic his words. Allah bless him. There are some useful Jews!

    We here in Iran love Keith Olbermann. We send him talking points and he repeats it. Brothers Bin Laden and Nasrallah, Olbermann is one of us bless him and the NY Times. I'm glad Olbermann is focused on Mel Gibson. Olbermann almost makes me like Jews!

    Regarding the whole hissy fit the media is throwing because they were exposed for being the Fox haters they are: Me thinks thou dost protest too much. Tools. Fox and MSNBC are both 10 years old, correct? One is an inspirational story, the other is the story of an old dude at the YMCA who dreams of making it in the NBA. It just ain't gonna happen. I forgot. Keith Olbermann is the number 1 show on MSNBC. And which one of the Indigo girls was the prettiest again?

    Loved the posts above, starting with the greeting from "Keith", and the praises from the transexuals, the Shiek, Osama himself! and Mahmoud A. LOL!!!

    Well helloooooo there, Missy. Post here often, dollface?

    Easy there, Keith. You know how hitting on women gives you shingles.

    I see many people are coming to the defense of Mel Gibson THE PERSON who are no doubt differently inclined politically. That is different from defending his comments, which no sane person would do. I'd be concerned about Keith's attempt to destroy Mel, but most people don't know who Olbermann is, much less watch his show. However, MSNBC is much more despicable than someone defending Mel Gibson. Get it together, Abrams. This is no way to start your stint as the captain of the Edmund Fitzgerald.... er, I mean MSNBC.

    Pat Fegan,
    Why do you think Keith Olbermann goes after Mel Gibson's comments but not those of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who talked of wiping Israel out. Why doesn't he condemn Hizbollah. I keep asking these lefties but they never answer. As a fellow righty why do you think they don't answer my question?

    ..the Don Rickles of cable news...
    I think of KrazyKnees Keith more as the " Rip Taylor" of cable news, stomping his feet and throwing out infamous nazi salutes and handfulls of confetti.

    I wrote a song about the Edmund Fitzgerald.

    I'm a Canadian, you know. Just like Jason in Manitoba, Canada. But not Don in North Dakota. I think he's an American.

    You are correct, sir! Yes!

    Keith thinks that he's Edward R. Murrow
    That claim makes his unibrow furrow
    Just a journalistic hack
    Should be jock-sniffing Shaq
    With no viewers, the evidence is thorough

    Tonight's final jep er dee category is media matters.

    Name someone current MSNBC anchor Keith Olberman has worked for - where he didn't attack those with higher ratings, he didn't leave on bad terms, he didn't make enemies, etc.

    do do do da do do do, do do do dah do, doddod

    Contestant A - I'll wager all my money - the answer is nowhere

    Contestant B - Well
    > he only lasted 6 months on Boston's Channal 5,
    > On KTLA in LA he attacked competitor Roggin and had a running (of ocurse public) feud with LA Sportwriter Larry Stewart
    > At KCBS in LA, amid horrible ratings, he actually did a weight loss program on the air, and his contract wasn't renewed
    > At ESPN he was suspended, and called ESPN a medeival torture chamber
    > He worked for Fox Sports, suffered through horrible ratings, and left
    > He worked for MSNBC - where the then President concluded he was an unhappy and confused guy
    > He worked as a contributor to CNN for almost a year
    > He came back to MSNBC where he continues to disparage his competitors and suffer through horrendous ratings,

    I'd have to say Alex, the anser is nowhere

    Contestant 3 (Keith Olbermann disguised as Bill O'Reilly) Alex my answer is - you're the worst person in the world.
