    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    September 5, 2006
    COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN - SEPTEMBER 5, 2006

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

    Host: Keith Olbermann

    Topics/Guests:

    • NATIONAL SECURITY AND ELECTION STRATEGY: Howard Fineman, Newsweek; John Hendren, NPR Pentagon correspondent
    • TV'S BIG DAY - KATIE COURIC AND ROSIE O'DONNELL: Michael Musto, Village Voice

    Another speech, another Olby "special comment". Is this going to be a new nightly feature on The Hour of Spin, sort of like Keith's very own, very personal "oddball" segment? Well, he does have a book to sell.

    The opening spiel got off to a crackerjack start, as the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann bellowed:

    Linking Al Qaeda media to American media?... A special comment on "Mister" Bush's speech!

    KO kicked off the hour stating that Bush branded his critics "as Nazi appeasers". After another plug for his "special comment on 'Mister' Bush's speech", Olby ran a few clips, but none of them linked Al Qaeda media and American media. Maybe Keith will document that in his "special comment".

    Who should show up at this point but Howard Fineman, Pundit for All Occasions. KO brought up an ABC report about a possible deal between UBL and the Pakistan government, and immediately used it as a weapon:

    Did that just take the air out of what the President was saying today, if not his entire credibility on this point?

    KO complained about the rhetoric, the "drumbeat" about Nazis and appeasers. We can understand why he might be a little sensitive about Nazi references these days, what with the ADL and all. Fineman decried "name calling", while finding a way to work Karl Rove into the discussion, and that made Olby's day.

    Then Reverend Olbermann gave his meager audience a sermonette on what Democrats do and do not dispute. It served as an intro for another appearance by the "terrorism analyst" Juliette Kayyem. We've seen this protege of Gephardt and Janet Reno before, and just like last time, her partisan background was carefully withheld from unsuspecting viewers. Olby noted again the Pakistan report: "Didn't we just punt?"

    Then KO started playing clipettes from the Bush speech, asking his expert guest questions like "Can you turn that on its head"? The crypto-Democrat intoned that the President's comments are "so far from reality" and "unhelpful". Olby: "I saw a disconnect." Kayyem: "Right, they are inconsistent." Olby: "These are not the droids you're looking for." Kayyem: "These are not the droids I'm looking for."

    And then the moment all the blue blogs had been waiting for: an isn't-that-special comment from the discredited sports guy himself. Bush is trying to tie those who disagree with his policies to Nazis. The President quoted a UBL letter where the terror leader called for a media campaign to create a wedge between the American people and their government:

    Make no mistake here, the intent of that is to get us to confuse the psychotic scheming of an international terrorist with that familiar bogeyman of the far right, the 'media'. The President and the Vice-President and others have often attacked freedom of speech and freedom of dissent and freedom of the press. Now "Mister" Bush has signalled that his unparalleled and unprincipled attack on reporting has a new and venomous side angle: the attempt to link, by the simple expediency of one word, media, the honest, patriotic, indeed vital questions and questioning from American reporters with the evil of Al Qaeda propaganda. That linkage is more than just indefensible. It is unAmerican. "Mister" Bush and his colleagues have led us before to such waters. We will not drink again.

    Stop the tivo! Where in the wide world of sports did George Bush compare Al Qaeda propaganda to American reporters, despite the amount of evidence Krazy Keith gives him each night? Don't bother reading the text of the speech. He made no such link--Olby just made it up! Merely use the word "media" and Herr Olbermann decides its a secret attack on Katie Couric. And what's with Olby impugning the President's patriotism? Tonight's comment certainly was "special". It had a loony, nonsensical, preposterous, over the top irrationality that is special to no one other than the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann.

    Even then he wasn't through. He continued to lecture "Mister" Bush about references to Nazis (physician, heal thyself), and issued a stern warning to the "easily manipulated" American populace. And as the capper, the obligatory Joe McCarthy reference: "Have you no sense of decency, sir?"

    In the #4 slot we finally learned what it takes for a Republican to break into Olby's all-blue club. Tom Kean Jr (R) called for Rummy to resign, and all of a sudden, for the first time in months, a Republican gets invited onto The Hour of Spin. He's only a candidate for Senate, but that was good enough for Keith. Oddly, while everyone, even inanimate spooling tape machines, gets "great thanks" from Olby, Mr Kean only got a "thank you for your time". Time to update The List (partisan politicos and strategists interviewed on Countdown, identified by party):

    • May 22: Lawrence O'Donnell (D)
    • May 30: Rep Barney Frank (D)
    • June 9: Lawrence O'Donnell (D)
    • June 15: Bob Schrum (D)
    • June 16: Rep John Murtha (D)
    • June 19: Al Gore (D)
    • June 20: Sen Jack Reed (D)
    • June 20: Lawrence O'Donnell (D)
    • June 23: Al Gore (D)
    • July 5: Lawrence O'Donnell (D)
    • July 12: Barbara Boxer (D)
    • July 13: Lawrence O'Donnell (D)
    • July 26: Bill Richardson (D)
    • August 8: Daily Kos (D)
    • August 9: Joe Trippi (D)
    • August 30: Howard Dean (D)
    • August 31: Barbara Boxer (D)
    • August 31: Rocky Anderson (D)
    • September 5: Tom Kean Jr (R)

    After oddball: a segment on Steve Irwin, followed by sports dads attack (regurgitated local affiliate video), soccer, and O.J. Simpson. In the Media Matters Minute, the worst person was both a Republican and a conservative. Wow, who coulda predicted that? Newt Gingrich's crime was saying something about appeasing terrorists. Wait, isn't that a lot like what Olby was talking about regarding Pakistan?

    NAME

    The longest hour on television stumbled to an embarrassing conclusion with the creepy Michael Musto, who "joked" about colonoscopies and, of course, Cruise News! The "great thanks" count: three (it would have been four if Olby hadn't stiffed Kean). Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 9 [SEVERE].

    I'm not being a smart ass, Johnny, but it's September 5th.

    Can't wait to read your post tonight concerning the "special comments." I wonder what history lesson he'll mangle this time, or what words he'll have pulled out of a thesaurus?

    You may be right. I think it IS September. Will attend to that!

    Well, I just didn't want to suffer another August of Olbermann if it wasn't necessary. :-)

    "Those exalted Amazon rankings for the book Keith claims to have written are starting to slip"
    **************************************************

    I just went to Amazon.Com and KO isn't even in the Top 100..I quess he'll really have to pull something out of his butt this time to get it back up before next week.

    I wonder what happen did people deside they really didn't want his book or maybe The Daily Kos kids found out they would have to spend their own money to buy his book and change their mind.

    Using my Darkside Sith powers,I Now declare Ayatollah Ulbermani the Supreme Chairman of the American Marxists/Islamo-Facists alliance!
    His nom de gueere shall be......
    Keith The Mad Mullah!

    Can I still call him Kommandant Keith?

    Can I still call him Kommandant Keith?

    That's a good one!

    Max Olbernut Headdrum!

    Yawn.

    'Have you no sense of decency, sir?'

    It is to our deep national shame—and ultimately it will be to the President’s deep personal regret—that he has followed his Secretary of Defense down the path of trying to tie those loyal Americans who disagree with his policies—or even question their effectiveness or execution—to the Nazis of the past, and the al Qaeda of the present.

    Today, in the same subtle terms in which Mr. Bush and his colleagues muddied the clear line separating Iraq and 9/11 -- without ever actually saying so—the President quoted a purported Osama Bin Laden letter that spoke of launching, “a media campaign to create a wedge between the American people and their government.”

    Make no mistake here—the intent of that is to get us to confuse the psychotic scheming of an international terrorist, with that familiar bogeyman of the right, the “media.”

    The President and the Vice President and others have often attacked freedom of speech, and freedom of dissent, and freedom of the press.

    Now, Mr. Bush has signaled that his unparalleled and unprincipled attack on reporting has a new and venomous side angle:

    The attempt to link, by the simple expediency of one word—“media”—the honest, patriotic, and indeed vital questions and questioning from American reporters, with the evil of Al-Qaeda propaganda.

    That linkage is more than just indefensible. It is un-American.

    Mr. Bush and his colleagues have led us before to such waters.

    We will not drink again.

    And the President’s re-writing and sanitizing of history, so it fits the expediencies of domestic politics, is just as false, and just as scurrilous.

    “In the 1920’s a failed Austrian painter published a book in which he explained his intention to build an Aryan super-state in Germany and take revenge on Europe and eradicate the Jews,” President Bush said today, “the world ignored Hitler’s words, and paid a terrible price.”

    Whatever the true nature of al Qaeda and other international terrorist threats, to ceaselessly compare them to the Nazi State of Germany serves only to embolden them.

    More over, Mr. Bush, you are accomplishing in part what Osama Bin Laden and others seek—a fearful American populace, easily manipulated, and willing to throw away any measure of restraint, any loyalty to our own ideals and freedoms, for the comforting illusion of safety.

    It thus becomes necessary to remind the President that his administration’s recent Nazi “kick” is an awful and cynical thing.

    And it becomes necessary to reach back into our history, for yet another quote, from yet another time and to ask it of Mr. Bush:

    “Have you no sense of decency, sir?”

    And he just can't say the words "President" and "Bush" together, can he?

    I wonder how many more times he's going to keep doing the same version of the "Marrow" speech..its getting real old real fast but I guess this will help his book sales which this is all really about.

    "It thus becomes necessary to remind the President that his administration’s recent Nazi “kick” is an awful and cynical thing."
    **************************************************
    As is the "I'm the new Edmond R. Murrow kick".

    "Olbermann: "Whatever the true nature of al-Qaeda and other international terrorist threats, to ceaselessly compare them to the Nazi state of Germany serves only to embolden them."

    With this statement, he just echoed PM. Chamberlain who he compared Bush to. He played down the Jihadi threat. He's either naive or worse!
    He's sounds just like a Jihadi sympathizer!
    I will keep saying that until otherwise disproven!


    Keith Olbermann Mad Libs

    A "special comment" for all occasions.

    It is to our deep national (emotion)—and ultimately it will be to (possesive noun) deep personal (emotion)—that he has followed his (noun) down the path of trying to tie those loyal (plural noun) who disagree with his (noun)—or even question their effectiveness or execution—to the (plural noun) of the past, and the (plural noun) of the present.

    Today, in the same (adjective) terms in which (noun) and his colleagues muddied the clear line separating (place) and (historical event) -- without ever actually saying so—(noun) quoted a purported ("purported" terrorist name) letter that spoke of launching, “a media campaign to create a wedge between the (plural noun) and their government.”

    Make no mistake here—the intent of that is to get (plural noun) to confuse the psychotic scheming of an international (another name for "freedom fighter"), with that familiar bogeyman of the right, the "(noun)."

    The (noun) and the (noun) and others have often attacked (noun), and freedom of (verb), and freedom of the (verb).

    Now, (noun) has signaled that his unparalleled and unprincipled attack on reporting has a new and (adjective) side angle:

    The attempt to link, by the simple expediency of one word—“media”—the (adjective), (adjective), and indeed vital questions and questioning from (nationality) reporters, with the evil of ("purported" terrorist group, possessive) propaganda.

    That linkage is more than just indefensible. It is un-American.

    M(noun) and his colleagues have led us before to such waters.

    We will not (verb) again.

    And the (noun, possessive) re-writing and sanitizing of history, so it fits the expediencies of domestic politics, is just as false, and just as (adjective).

    “In the 1920’s a failed Austrian (profession) published a book in which he explained his intention to build an Aryan super-state in Germany and take revenge on Europe and eradicate the Jews,” (noun) said today, “the world ignored (name of a "deplorable" MSNBC newsman, possessive) words, and paid a terrible price.”

    Whatever the true nature of (same "purported" terrorist group from above) and other international terrorist threats, to ceaselessly compare them to the Nazi State of Germany serves only to embolden them.

    More over, (noun), you are accomplishing in part what (leader of "purported" terror group) and others seek—a fearful American populace, easily manipulated, and willing to throw away any measure of restraint, any loyalty to our own ideals and freedoms, for the (adjective) illusion of safety.

    It thus becomes necessary to remind (noun) that his administration’s recent (group name) “kick” is an (adjective) and (adjective) thing.

    And it becomes necessary to reach back into our history, for yet another quote, from yet another time and to ask it of (noun):

    “Have you no sense of (noun), (noun)?”

    Olbermann is a traitor!

    Olbermann is a traitor!

    Some much to choose from, so little time. I think if I had to pick a favorite line I'd go with...

    "thus becomes necessary to remind the President that his administration's recent Nazi 'kick' is an awful and a cynical thing."

    Ha! This coming from a guy who went on his "Nazi Kick" just a few weeks ago - albeit for a far more serious purpose, yet another failed attempt to generate interest in his television show.

    You just can't make this stuff up. Run, Keith, Run!

    isn't it funny that this idiot gets so worked up about using the comparison to nazism yet he had no problem doing it in mocking bill o'reilly? have you no shame mr. olberman sir?

    “a media campaign to create a wedge between the American people and their government.”

    Sounds like Olbermann has wedge-envy. Apparently the little wedge known as KO isn't working so well.

    Once again, I ask Johnny Dollar to explain why he has decided to criticize Keith Olbermann for something that is STANDARD NEWS INDUSTRY PRACTICE!

    President Bush was called "President Bush" AT THE BEGINNING OF THE NEWSCAST! Once that is done, he can be referred to as "Mister Bush".

    Anderson Cooper does it. Brian Williams does it. Bill O'Reilly does it. So why are you using WHAT MOST AMERICAN JOURNALISTS DO as reflecting negatively on Olbermann?

    This is the fourth time I've asked. I demand a response.

    P.S. - Palpatine, shut up. You're not funny anymore. You're routine is so stale it's pathetic.

    I'm already missing Sarah! Sarah? Sarah? I still have to mow her lawn.

    Anonycoward,
    Olbermann's Jihadi leanings are exposed by his own words! He down plys them!
    Knowing full well the threat that is Islamo-Fascism. there's no logical explanation, He works for them!

    WOW........ I thought you were an authentic Olbermann fan site! How pathetic... someone speakes the truth and you just can't take it! Open your minds, he is not the enemy.

    "Open your minds, he is not the enemy."

    No, just the fool.

    Valerie,
    Ayatollah Ulbermani is a Jihadi-Maqrxist hacks. He hates Bush so much, that he'll help our enemies to hurt Bush.
    I'm not a Bush fan, but in a time of war disagree respectfully and constructive inwar. No matter which party is in charge.
    Olbermann should leave the country and nove to Iran!

    I was waiting for KO to somehow link the death of Steve Irwin to Bush and company as some attempt to change the subject...well the week is still young and if those book sells don't go up I wouldn't put it pass him to give it a shot.

    "I demand a response."

    Uh oh. Now I'm really in trouble.

    Tell you what, anonymous. You show me a transcript of any other tv news program where the "anchor" refers to the President as "Mister" Bush 9 times in the course of less than a half hour, and I'll answer your question. Deal?

    mlong,
    Give him a few days. he'll claim space aliens from orion zaped him with invisible gammarays. That's what they claim 9/11. They claim that Aliens controlled by Karl Rove, carried out 9/11!

    Having studied it in graduate school, I am somewhat partial to game theory analysis and would commend to all you clear-thinking readers a study published by the Center for Research in Economics, Management and the Arts. The reasearch was done by Prof. Bruno S. Frey of the Institute for Empirical Research in Economics at the University of Zurich and Dominic Rohner of Cambridge University.

    You can obtain ($) a copy of "Blood and Ink! The Common-Interest-Game Between Terrorists and the Media" here:
    http://ideas.repec.org/p/cra/wpaper/2006-08.html

    The abstract is free:

    "It has often been pointed out in the literature that a symbiotic relationship exists between terrorist groups and the media. As yet, however, no formal model has been built based on this issue and only very little empirical research has been done in this field. The present contribution builds a simple game theoretic model, focussing on the social interactions between terrorists and the media. The model has features of a common-interest-game and results in multiple equilibria. After a discussion of the policy implications of the model, an empirical analysis is performed. Using newspaper coverage, terror incidents and terror fatalities data, it is shown that media attention and terrorism do mutually Granger cause each other, as predicted by the model. Moreover, it is explained why terror attacks tend to be �bloodier� in developing countries than in Europe and the United States."

    For those among us without an advanced degree in economics, let me simplify...

    They sampled news reports from The New York Times and a leading Swiss newspaper and tried to come to determine if there was a correlation between media coverage of terror attacks and the frequency of terror attacks. What they found was that media coverage of terror attacks caused more attacks - and that attacks caused more coverage.

    In game-theory (a branch of economics developed by John Nash - Russell Crowe's character in A Beautiful Mind) this is known as a �common-interest game". Each side get mutual and reciprocating benefits. In this case, increased interested in reporting on terrorism (actual terror acts not potential threats) after 9/11 actually fueled more attacks.

    The reason, from an economic perspective, is simple - the purpose of a terror attack is to terrorize the general population (as opposed to say a military attack which is intended to destroy or obtain the target of the attack). Media coverage of a terror attack is the means by which the terror occurs (if a car bomb blows up in a forest does it make a sound?). More media attention to terror attacks makes a terror attack more valuable because the terrorists have, in effect, a bigger microphone. In politics we'd call that "earned media" - getting your candidate or cause on TV or in the papers as part of a news story rather than buying an ad. For example, an al Qaeda tape made today gets far more of a hearing that it did 10 years ago.

    In this light, terror attacks are "communication" by terrorist orgaizations which uses the media to broadcast the terrorists message or ideology.

    The media has a common-interest with the terrorists because terror attacks increase viewership and newspaper sales. The value of terror attacks to the media increases.

    The terrorists' entire strategy hinges on their ability to exploit the media (the Arab/Muslim media to recruit, the western media to frighten/weaken). That Bush is FINALLY talking about this is not even remotely close to silencing dissent or blaming the media. It is to point out a very important aspect to the War on Terror.

    What KO and his fellow lefties struggle with (and why they are frothing at the mouth over the current PR offensive by the White House) is that aggressive media coverage is BOTH essential to our democracy AND a weakness being exploited by our enemy.

    I don't believe that the intention of Mary Mapes and her pals at CBS News in breaking the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal was to help the terrorists and undermine the United States in the war on terror. It was an important story and there were serious issues raised that needed to be addressed. As journalists, they did their job. That does not, however, change the fact that the Abu Ghraib photos were a huge victory for our enemies, that they did help the terrorists and did undermine the United States in the war on terror.

    Remember how the U.S. military was refusing to provide a "body count" to the press during the Invasion of Iraq? Their reason was their concern that the media would turn "body count" into a scorecard for evaluating progress in the war. What do we have today? Every night the news reports (1) the number of bombs exploded in Iraq (2) the number of U.S. troops killed - if any) (3) the number of Iraqi police killed - if any (4) the number of Iraqi civilians killed. Occassionally you hear a number for how many terrorists/insurgents were killed. In other words, the reports from Iraq are little bit like getting the sports scores from ESPN. Yankees 5 White Sox 3, Insurgents 4 Coalition Forces 3, Dodgers 6 Giants 4...and now a word from our sponsors.

    How Keith Olbermann gets from what Bush said to the idea that what he was really doing was equating Osama bin Laden with "the media" is absurd. What KO does not like (in his case, for good reason) is Bush pointing out that the way the media covers the war on terror / the war in Iraq - as some simplistic numbers game where x % increase in suicide bombers and y% decrease in attacks on police station - IS what the terrorists want. They get to be the story every night. The terrorists know to keep feeding the media beast and they know that the media always wants bigger and better. The media deploys more reports to cover those attacks - a "get" becomes rushing to the scene of a bombing before the fire department can put out the flames and the ambulances can remove the victimes. This coverage begs the question, rarely enunciated out loud, "what do they want" and "how can we get them to agree to stop".

    What makes KO uncomfortable is that the answer is NOTHING. Worse, he does not have any kind of answer for that so rather than deal with the reality of the type of war we are in - largely a media war - he encourages his viewers to hide their heads in the sand and pretend that what big bad Bush is talking about - the unvarnished truth about the nature of the enemy - is not real. And that any attempt to engage the American public on that topic is censorship or some new form of McCarthyism.

    I'd love to hear Keith actually address the point Bush is making - that the media is the primary vehicle through which the terrorists opereate - than keep throwing together strawman so he can adopt the persona of various characters from his favorite movies (All the President's Men, Network, Good Night and Good Luck, etc.) and play the "righteous indignation" card.

    I loved the Keith's thanks to his fans for buying his book before his "a very special Countdown" bit.

    Keith's making a bargain here-- "I'll whip you lefty foaming-at-the-mouth dorm room denizens into ecstacy at the sound of Air America type spiel being delievered uncontested over primetime television airwaves by a cable news host-----you buy my book...and...watch my show...

    Damn! Phil Donahue was too fair to attempt that gig... How cynical can you get...

    BTW-- I disagree, Johnny. I think Bush was telling people to weigh what they hear from the media. And good for him.

    Of course, his critics can mouth jingoistic nonsequiturs about how it's patriotic for them to criticise the Bushies, but it's repressive if the Administration takes it critics to task.....but god help you if you utter the notion that the media might bear scrutiny too...how cynical can you get with that sort of assault on the holy oracles...unless, of course, you mean Fox...

    Let me mention too, Olbermann's crack about Newt Gingrich and new "radical right" talking points...this is pretty ironic considering Fineman had just warned the Democrats off their strategy of making Rumsfeld the big issue... I think he means you too Keith...

    Like his days at ESPN, and the first foray at MSNBC, KO's days are numbered, by his own rotten mind/mouth.

    CNN would take him, but they're all staffed up with nuts at the moment. They'll keep his resume on file, I am assuming . . .

    Johnny Dollar,

    As a very wise man once said - "I don't like the wrong end of a sucker bet."

    Keith Olbermann rocks!

    Suck it, righties!

    1. I'm guessing that since you think it is okay for mister Bush to make Nazi references, its time to take down the KO nazi animation on this site's homepage. It's not good to be a hypocrite is it?

    2. If you guys can't see how BushCo constantly tries to tie Saddam to 9-11 while denying it at the same time, you'll never get how BushCo is trying to indict the media as Usama sympathizers either. Its called a smear tactic. Look it up.

    Keith can say whatever he wants. It's his show. For now.

    It's a business and Keith's show is failing by all standards of profit and market share by which cable news is measured. Hardball is barely ahead of Keith.

    Look for a clean sweep sometime in 2007. If not, Abrams will be in the soup line.

    When historians write of the demise of the early 21st century Republican party, and they will, I hope that Keith's name makes it into those pages. He is the one voice that speaks up against the idiocy that is the Bush administration. How anyone can sit in defense of the actions of this adminstration is remarkable and pathetic at the same time.

    Conservatives, you had your chance at total domination and you blew it by hitching your wagon to a group of incompetent buffoons. Congratulations! It took the american public 40+ years to get sick of the democrats, but it only took them 12 to get sick of Republican BS. That's got to be a new record!

    1. I'm guessing that since you think it is okay for mister Bush to make Nazi references, its time to take down the KO nazi animation on this site's homepage. It's not good to be a hypocrite is it?
    ***************************************************
    It should stay because its there as a reminder that its KO thats the hypocrite.

    It funny how the left is so upset that Bush is calling terrorist nazis..why are they so defensive ?.. dose it hit to close to home that Bush is right about them being appeasers(which by the way he really hasn't done).

    Bob, your ego needs this like Rosie O'Donnell needs 'pulling out of her shell'...but that was a terrific post.

    Aside from the fascinating point about media/terrorist dynamics, this comment really laid bare the psyche of the guy who came of age during the zenith of the crusading media hero era:

    "I'd love to hear Keith actually address the point Bush is making - that the media is the primary vehicle through which the terrorists opereate - than keep throwing together strawman so he can adopt the persona of various characters from his favorite movies (All the President's Men, Network, Good Night and Good Luck, etc.) and play the "righteous indignation" card."

    http://www.ojr.org/ojr/stories/041130glaser/

    OJR: How would you describe yourself politically on the liberal-to-conservative spectrum? How important do you think it is for MSM to be transparent on their political affiliations?

    KO: I'm not political. I don't vote -- I don't believe journalists covering politics should (and I don't think the democracy would suffer if however many of us there are, recused ourselves). I have no more interest in the political outcome of an election than I did in the winner or loser of any ballgame I ever covered. I think transparency is vital; I think it's also, in these super-heated political times, unintentionally inescapable. If a reporter's work in turn winds up criticizing a candidate or party in some cases, and praising that same candidate or party in others, he's as close to neutral as he can be. If not, he's a partisan. The partisans outnumber the neutrals 1000:1.

    Johnny

    This is a bit of a stretch but this new special comment crap segment. Follow me, He's tried the worst person crap with O'Reilly 116 or so times. Hasn't worked,ratings keep falling.So, Maybe Abrams figured they should do a ripoff of "The Talking Points Memo" to boost ratings. The difference being O'Reilly agree or disagree makes points that make sense. Special comment is just a sorry ass moron making himself look like an imbecile.

    To the people at MSLSD

    I would like to show I'm not all that mean and would like to help the folks at Meltdown boost sagging ratings. So..... Listen up you morons!

    You're show is like a bad sci-fi movie from the fifties or sixties, whatever.(Plan Nine From Outer Space, Attack Of The Killer Tomatos, Bride of The Monster) You guys get the picture. Well why don't do a M.S.T.3000 type show? Yeah, you see you run the show as is, but then you have Robert Cox, Johnny Dollar and whatever guest they want to have on that night sitting in the theatre making comments in real time. Hey sounds like a ratings winner to me.

    Oh, by the way Loons

    As of this post the book has dropped to #166 on Amazon

    Great prose, JD.

    And may I say: Many thanks, sir, for your time!

    How did you feel when you realized that Mr Bush and his gaggle had played you? It made me MAD! I supported him and everything he said for a long time but, when I found out that I had been played, manipulated and lied to I became angry. How dare they think that we are dumb! Enough is enough...enough have died and been mislead... They need to go and we need a change.

    Dear Keith,

    Please go back to ESPN. You used to have such finesse handling other guys's balls.

    I was debating as to whether this was worth posting, since everyone makes mistakes, and we know that Olbermann doesn't write his own E-mail newsletters. However, it seems that Carey Fox would probably want to get one little fact straight in his E-mail alert to viewers:

    "Last week, Keith had a Special Comment regarding Secretary of State Donald Rumsfeld's remarkable speech to the American Legion.

    Would that we lived in a world where such extraordinary utterances from our leaders were rare.

    Tonight, Keith's Special Comment on the speech President Bush delivered, today."

    Secretary of State Donald Rumsfeld?

    Secretary of State?

    Of STATE?

    Damn, all this time I was thought he was Secretary of Defense. Does Condi know about this job shakeup? Are Olbermann and Boxer still asking the Secretary of Defense to resign?

    John in DC says it much better than I can.

    Good God, now Bush is comparing Iraq to the Soviet Union
    by John in DC - 9/06/2006 12:17:00 AM

    So we've had the Nazis, the Civil War, and now Lenin. I'm sure I'm missing some other absurd comparisons as well.

    "History teaches that underestimating the words of evil and ambitious men is a terrible mistake," the president said. "Bin Laden and his terrorist allies have made their intentions as clear as Lenin and Hitler before them. The question is: Will we listen? Will we pay attention to what these evil men say?""

    What this idiot doesn't understand, or chooses to ignore, is that regardless of how evil the enemy, the problem isn't that the American people don't understand the dangers we face. The problem is that the American people have finally understood that we have an incompetent buffoon in charge of tackling said danger. And no amount of prattling about Lenin or Hitler is going to quell people's concerns that Bush is simply not up to the task.
    ---------------------------

    It doesn't matter if Johnny Dollar or Robert Cox types this drivel; it's all the same. Neither one of you can actually construct an argument that references anything outside of your own personal opinion; you have no sources, you have no factual substantiation.

    You are petty, and you call people names. That is completely pathetic. Pathetic in that you have nothing better to do with your time, and no constructive means of arriving at any sort of solution to what you see as a problem.

    You write like a skank. You have no ethics, no depth, and have displayed a clear lack of factual sunstantiation. You are woefully unable to perform a parenthetical citation.

    And, oddly enough, you have no opinion of "Oddball." So, your editorialization isn't even complete. You're a 90% sub-par wannabe hack.

    Additionally, if you could actually construct a sentence, then it might better serve your point. Generally, when asking a question, one punctuates that with a question mark, not a period.

    When done so poorly, with such a poor grasp of prose and grammar, "mockery" looks idiotic and desperate. Tonight, JD, you have accomplished displays of your own idiocy and desperation. Try harder next time.

    Wow, she's back. And doing exactly what she always does. She just refuses to take a position on anything.

    Interpolate.

    My position is that the combinations of words presented by Johnny Dollar and Robert Cox are executed poorly.

    Oh wow, really sticking you neck out on that one. A frustrated grammar teacher, perhaps. How about really taking a chance, and actualy giving your opinion of KO ?

    Sarah, I'd say you sounded like Tanne or Berry Bush, but you're about 10,000 words short. For the words you do use, I must compliment you: I've never seen such a large amount of complete and appropriately punctuated sentences add up to abolutely nothing.

    She's certainly got the vocabulary and grammar down pat, if only she could learn to use it to express an opinion. Just don't understand her reluctance to just jump in a tell us her real feelings. Must go way back to her childhood.

    Sarah,

    You are petty, and you call people names. Did you have a point with your post, or were you trying to demonstrate that you don't have a clue and cannot "sunstantiate" anything?

    Irony.

    I think silly that two people post here as "Anonymous".

    I express an opinion every time I post.

    There are hundreds that post here as "anonymous" - I agree, they should give their name - at least their first name - Maybe they don't realize they could actually use - Gasp - a fictitious name -
    And Sarah - You know you don't really give an opinion - Other than to criticize everyone except yourself for HOW people express their opinions - Maybe there is a website where people sit around and discuss and give opinions on how people discuss and give opinions.

    Wow is this guy trying to get fired. And he talks about others being brainwashed…wow somebody sure got to this guy. Anyhow I was looking for a good word to describe Keith.


    Main Entry: Keith·ten·tious
    Pronunciation: Keeeith-'ten(t)-sh&s
    Function: adjective
    Etymology: French keithtentieux, from keithtention pretension, from Medieval Latin keithtention-, kiethopretentio, from Latin keithbaby
    1 : characterized by: as a : making usually unjustified or excessive claims while having an orange face. To be Orange (as of value or standing as a commie)

    Sarah

    Damn it ! How many times must we tell you. This site is NOT ABOUT FREE SPEECH. This site is NOT ABOUT EVERYONE HAVING AN OPION. This site is NOT FOR LOONEY LEFT-WING NUT-JOBS.
    This site is for OLBY-HATERS…PERIOD. If you want to jibber-jabber about your views and opinions take it to a Yahoo board or MOVEON site. GEZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    Sarah said: "You are petty, and you call people names. That is completely pathetic."

    Sarah then goes on to say:
    "You write like a skank." and "You have no ethics, no depth" and "You're a 90% sub-par wannabe hack." and "Tonight, JD, you have accomplished displays of your own idiocy and desperation."

    Hypocritical much there are you Sarah?

    This is not a big deal, but did anyone notice that Keith abandoned his "57 days until the midterm election" signoff at the end of the show? Maybe his bosses told him that was too blatantly partisan.

    Sarah spewed: "You are petty, and you call people names. That is completely pathetic"

    Yet another accurate description of Krazy Keith. You go, Sarah.

    Keith is completely pathetic
    He thinks his words are prothetic
    His show is pure tripe
    Just tabloid news hype
    Meltdown is like anesthetic

    * September 5: Tom Kean Jr (R)

    I guess if you're a Republican wanting to get elected to the Senate, from a state so blue, it's navy, then I guess you pretty much have to throw Rummy off the plank.

    But go on Krazy Keith's Kountdown? Why Tom, why?

    I have heard lots of verbage but haven't heard a real good explanation why the democrats aren't acting like the appeasers of the 1930's. All I hear is Bush is an idiot and has messed everything up. I don't hear a plan how to fix Iraq, keep Iran from getting nuclear weapons, fight terrorism, etc. All I hear from them is we can do better and we'll have international cooperation. I don't think disabling programs that have kept us safe for 5 years is going to work. Or releasing the terrorists in Gitmo. Or leaving Iraq to the terrorists. The "international community" will not stop Iran. See the oil for food program for how to bribe the French, Germans, and Russians. So if you throw your skirt over your head and say we can't do anything how is that not appeasing?

    You will never hear this explained by the Democrats, neither here, nor thru the media. Nor will the media press them on it.

    Tony Snow
    "There have been some in the Democratic Party who have argued against the Patriot Act, against the terror surveillance program, against Guantanamo. (CORRECT)

    In other words, (WATCH OUT NOW...HERE COMES THE WORD-TWISTING...GET READY FOR THE PAPER TIGER TO BE SET UP FOR A KNOCKOUT)there are some people who say that we shouldn't fight the war (GIVE ME NAMES AND QUOTES, NOT "IN OTHER WORDS" -- NAMES AND QUOTES) we should not detain -- we shouldn't apprehend al Qaeda, we shouldn't detain al Qaeda, we shouldn't question al Qaeda, and we shouldn't listen to al Qaeda.

    Exactly which Democrats are saying we shouldn't fight Al Qaeda? BTW...Al Q -- that would be OBL and Dr. Al Zawahairi -- are in Wizeristan (Pakistan) and were in Tora Bora (Afghanistan). The 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. So how is it that people who criticize the war in IRAQ, many of whom were supportive of the Bush administration at first, are against AlQ? They just caught or killed the #2 ALQ GUY in IRaq. I NEVER HEARD OF THE GUY! (And I really know this stuff). Problem is most people say -- great we caught the number two ALQ guy -- woo woo. No that would be Aymin -- and not only are we not anywhere close to capturing him -- he has more hit videos than Beyonce.
    Just asking.

    10 jobs - 8 as a sportscaster - in 20 years. A resume marked by cheap shot attacks on rivals with better ratings (Boston, KCLA, LA Sportscaster, Fox Sports, MSNBC, et al) profanity laced e-mail to detractors (MSNBC), firings (Boston, etc), leaving contracts early (Fox Sports, ESPN, etc.), burning bridges (ESPN & all), suspensions (ESPN), immaturity (all), horrible ratings (Fox Sports, Boston, KCLA, MSNBC, etc) , did I say being fired and overall -not a "work history" anyone with a deep sense of integrity and ethics would be proud of. Failures

    So where does he end up - on MSNBC - ranting about ethics and integrity, attacking competitors with higher ratings (yeah - that's everyone) immaturity, cheap shots, and once again for the 8th time in his career - suffering through horrible ratings and resorting to anything to make himself the success he thinks he deserves to be.

    Only think left - the natural progression - is his 10th pink slip in 20 years.

    Yeah, you can't compare al Qaeda to Nazi's. Al Qaeda is giving you the choice of converting to Islam or not. Convert or die.

    Hitler didn't give Jews a choice, he just killed them. Al Qaeda is so much nicer.

    CR, so its al queda which has nothing to do with iraq and iraq which has nothing to do with al queda. I am afraid that doesn't make much sense. Ben laden can't poke his head out of his hidey hole to do much mischief but his surrogates in iraq sure can. you've got to kill them where you can find them. if you're so expert on this, why don't you go over to pakistan and capture ben laden yourself.

    OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY! THE RATINGS ARE IN FOR FRIDAY AND KEITH WAS AWESOME! He had 99,000 in the demo! Almost made a c-note! The taped crapola on MSLSD pulled 143,000.

    The Scoreboard: Friday, Sept. 1
    25-54 demographic: (LS)

    1. O'Reilly 313,000
    2. Grace 218,000
    3. Zahn 181,000
    4. Olbermann 99,000

    Total Viewers

    2. Zahn 518,000
    3. Grace 483,000
    4. Olbermann 340,000

    If I were Krazy Keith, I'd go back to a straight "fake newscast" and eliminate the "special comments." When he goes on those nutty rants, even the half a brainers (the majority of his audience) smell a rat and abandon ship.

    MSNBC 's entire nightly lineup for Friday was under 100K in the Demo.... until they got to the reruns of Investigative Reports at 10PM.

    Von,

    You should have preceded your first line with "IN OTHER WORDS". That is the approprate manner in which to twist what someone said and set up the paper tiger. No, Von, I never said Al Qaeda and Iraq have nothing to do with each other. You simply put those words in my mouth.

    You followed the fabricated statement by saying, "I am afraid that doesn't make much sense", and I would have to agree, which is why I didn't say it.

    You said: Ben laden can't poke his head out of his hidey hole to do much mischief but his surrogates in iraq sure can.

    They sure can...just as they have in Tanzania, Kenya, INdonesia, London,etc.

    You said: You've got to kill them where you can find them. ABSOLUTELY! I am very happy that that #2 guy in Iraq is dead. I'm just saying that we got the guy who was selling the nickel bag, while the drug lord goes on with biz.

    You said: if you're so expert on this, why don't you go over to pakistan and capture ben laden yourself.

    Ah yes, nice conclusion. Why didn't you just say my mother wears army boots?

    If I could I would go over to wherever he is and shoot him dead. Von, I don't know you, and you don't know me, so that is just a stupid statement.

    That would be like me saying you could do Tony Snow's job.

    cr,
    the poster's name is at the bottom, so its zebulon, not von. i am sorry if i misinterpreted your post. you seem to be saying the usualy lefty line that iraq was a distraction in the war on terror, that alqueda had nothing to do with iraq, etc. i also apologize for assuming when you say you really know this stuff (i assume refering to al queda leadership and their locations) that you actually knew who and where they were. i think tony snow is doing a great job. if i recall correctly dingy harry reid was celebrating the "death of the patriot act." that would be one democrat.

    ok zeb....u gotta read this stuff, i just don'tn have enuf time. dems saying death to patriot act was one thing i said that was CORRECT. read carefully. tony snow talks about democrats who don't want to detain or apprehend Al-Q. Name one democrat, as a matter fact, name anyone other than Islamists who say that we should not fight and destroy Iraq. And as for ratings, you are right, his are abysmall. But,as PResident Bush always says, we don't look at the polls -- in this case the ratings. Watch O'Reilly cause you believe in him and don't watch Olbermann if you don't like him. But don't get caught on the slippery slope of winning the popularity contest.
    Joe McCarthy beat Murrow in the ratings
    Bull Conner beat MLK in the ratings
    ...and if Jesus were around today -- he'd be lucky to pull a 2 share. So don't go with the pack on this one so quickly or we're going to think you are a huge fan of American Idol.

    hmmmm, i don't know anyone, even democrats who want to fight and destroy IRAQ, i think you mean al queda. and while no democrat says so their actions speak louder. murtha, withdraw now. dems against the patriot act. durbin guantanmo gulag (didn't you think it was funny when teddy kennedy went down there and actually found out what was going on and praised the soldiers for not beating the crap out of sludge who threw feces and urine on them, but i digress) against the oversees terrorist surviellence of phone calls to the us, against secretly monitoring the terrorists money. man i could go on and on. i could say ko is intelligent but when the evidence is overwhelming, i just look silly, same with the dems and terrorism.

    Just heard el Rushbo read off the list of MSNBC's election coverage. He then said something like, "Hmmmm. One name's missing."

    HaHa!

    Olby keeps trying to getthe biggest Talker (Limbaugh) and the biggest Cable Guy (O'Reilly) to mention his name on their shows. He's acting like my 4 year old nephew, who keeps whining, "look at me!" at parties. Olby keeps hoping to provoke a response, but instead all he gets are oblique references that only ratchet up his insanity. Nice. Couldn't happen to a more deserving person.

    The Supreme Chairman Ayatollah Ulbermani, was under his desk!

    This will be interesting to see whether Orange Boy brings up Rush's veiled reference, as he is always desperately hoping that he will get even a sniff of attention from someone with true iconic credentials. If Orange Boy does note that Rush (obliquely) mentioned his absence from MSLSD election coverage team, doesn't he have to offer up some reason why he is not on the team? Maybe the plumber is coming over to fix his bathtub that night?

    Olbermann's ratings are low....kind of in the same category with Bush's approval ratings. But then again, we don't look at polls. We just do what God tells us to do.

    divi,

    Thanks for mentioning that. Rush got that off Michele Malkin's Hot Air site which linked over here. I posted it after J$ alerted me.

    The vast right wing conspiracy...at your service!

    Just a thought,

    Olby's special comment.

    That short bus Olby and The Loons use to ride to school must have been packed!!!

    But really, You Loons make it out that Olby could smoke anybody from the right or center, whatever. And now with his special comment. Hell!
    Again he should be the end all and be all and what happens Friday night? 99,000 in the demo?

    99,000!!! Keith, in Baseball speak. You just fell below the MENDOZA LINE! Nobody stays in the majors after falling below the MENDOZA LINE! Pal, you're days are numbered. 99,000....That's pathetic!!! Against an O'Reilly fill-in or was it a best of? Doesn't matter 99,000 thats pathetic!!!!!

    99,000... I'm sure at this point we could find a show on public access that beats this show.

    99,000....At this point MSLSD should advertise Meltdown as a special show for special people. Because there has to be something abnormally wrong with someones head to belive this s**t. But hey, Jim Jones once got a couple of hundred people to drink crappy tasting Kool-Aid!!!!!!

    Look at that Grace chick....Grace 483,000
    Olbermann 340,000 beat'in the BIG OBLY...

    Go Keith! The right is beside themselves with Keith. They have a website http://olbermannwatch.com/ They can't disprove what he says, so the site is really nothing more than a bunch of whiny nutjobs calling him names.

    "Neither one of you can actually construct an argument that references anything outside of your own personal opinion; you have no sources, you have no factual substantiation."

    Gotta love Sarah, typical eliteist...thinks she is smarter than everyone because she can "construct" a sentence.

    Sarah, where are your "sources" and "factual substantiation" that you so smugly accuse us of lacking? Your latest screed lacked any substance whatsover...

    I punctuated with a question mark...yippee, big boy likes to use question marks!

    The remarks by Olbermnn on 9/5 and 9/6/06 were monumental in scope. They should be widely publicized. Keep up the good work. God bless!

    HA!HA!HA!HA!..oh thats a good one..thanks for the laugh...:)

    I watched with my mouth agape, while Keith sat and delivered that 5 September speech with crazed firey eyes. Not being a frequent viewer, I though he was just having an on air meltdown but it sounds like he is always like this.

    I do remember his snarky personality from ESPN, guess he hasn't changed much. Miserable bastard, wonder if he knows how far medication has come in the last 10 years.

    I'm guessing Sara is 14 or 15 years old. Her clearly underdeveloped writing style and use of teen-like nouns such as skank surely give her away. I can teach a monkey to punctuate properly with enough bannanas.
