    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    September 20, 2006
    OlbyLoon "Review" of Olbermann Watch

    Flamingo lake has a rather long review of Olbermann Watch and except for a few technical errors (e.g. J$ writes the nightly review not me) gives a fairly reasonable assessment of the site. FL give OlbermannWatch a "3" (out of 5) for "Fun", a "5" for Newsworthiness and for Nit-picking.

    My favorite part was about all of you loyal OlbyWatch readers: "The comment's are stay pretty much on topic and people flame each other from both directions. There are some comments that are well thought out and are frequent enough to give his comment section a Big 4

    As for me being on a "personal mission to rid the airwaves of Olbermann", why would I want that; Keith perfectly embodies the far-left's kookiness and puts in on display for the world to see. Plus, more KO buzz means more traffic for Olbermann Watch. Thanks to the attention towards Keith's "special comments" we are now the highest rated "Olbermann" blog in the world even including Keith's own bloggerman.com blog.

    To OW readers, consider using this post to offer any suggestions on how we might raise the fun factor to "5" and other improve the site.

    Perhaps simply correcting your spelling and grammar would make the pages more readable.

    Ah, I see the Olbermann spelling/grammar fanatics have returned. See, they can't fault our logic and always lose when facts are presented so they resort to picking on minute spelling/grammar errors.

    Robert: I'm a huge fan of yours and this site, but I think David is right. I've seen several basic spelling / grammar errors in your more recent posts (although none from J$). These seem to be basic typos that were missed in the rush to get the material out. It's one thing when someone like me does it; it's different when it's a pro like you.

    Look at your last sentence above. I know what you meant when you said "other improve the site," but I can see others (Obly & his loons) making fun of it.

    "The comment's are stay pretty much on topic and people flame each other from both directions."

    This was a direct quote from the reviewer's site. It is grammatically incorrect. It should say- "The comments are pretty much on topic" with no apostrophe after comment and remove the "are" or substitute "all", as in "The comments all stay..."

    So how would fixing the grammar on OW help that?

    I think that it is simply understood that in the heat of cyberspace debate, errors happen. SO WHAT?

    "it's different when it's a pro like you."

    Pro? I thought Robert was just an enthusiast, or whatever you call someone who is enthusiastically against someone. He gets paid for this?

    Why not have contests for the best satirazation of an Olbermann "special comment", Countdown guest list. Conversely the Olby fans could do "special comments", guest lists, etc. based on some outrage perpetrated by the Bushies or some some hideousness by the "rightwing media", etc. However, it all needs be humorous as opposed to being solely angry.

    Put a number of words limit on the posts and let the person who won be the next judge. That will help ensure the inclusion of the Olberphiles.

    The default judges are Johnny and Bob and they can step in if the contest winner/judge doesn't come through. I think submissions from Johnny and Bob should be allowed as well, and they can even award their own satire so the whole thing stays light and not too structured...

    I foresee Johnny and KfK sewing up the contest, but we'd all have a ball reading their submissions and writing our own.

    Just For My Kids, did a hilarious send-up a new Countdown theme song in the Countdown Sept 19th thread.

    A new Countdown theme song is a great category for a competition!

    I don't really care about typos and spelling errors and grammar. It is even worse than that - sometimes I leave out words all together.

    When I write an Op-Ed I spend several hours writing it, then spell check it, read it aloud, have folks I know proof it and then send it off to be edited, fact-checked and all that by the publication.

    Guess what, I am not going to do any of that for something I dash off on this site. And as you can tell, I could not give one fig if people don't like it. The alternative is me not posting here at all and I am sure we can all agree that the world would be a poorer place without the benefit of my analysis of Keith Olbermann's work.

    Speeling and gramar ar fine. nobody expekts mcuh from KO bashiers.

    To get a "5" recruit a pro-olberman blogger. Seriously. It would give some red meat to the KO bashers an allow discussion besides the shade of KO's tan.

    Discuss what is right with the show. Even if you usually disagree with KO, there are times when you have to admit, the guy has a point.

    I don't freak out over typos like some people do.

    I'd like to see an area for Keith art. I know there was a problem with this in the past... but a section for approved art might be "fun"... or atleast humorous.

    Dude, you need to get a girlfriend. Move out of your parents' basement. Enjoy the weather. Watch some of the new shows on TV. Whatever.

    Life's too short to miss out on all of that so you can critique Keith.

    Steve, several of us are married and have kids. It's Olbermann who has never been married nor has he reproduced (Thank God).

    Steve:

    What about Katy Tur and Karmabites1? They coited with Olby (yikes!).

    It is funny that you mention that Olbermann is a great display of far-left kookiness because I just don't see that. Left-wing spin, sure, but far-left kookiness? Olbermann rarely enters the territory of Michael Moore, Sam Seder, or Noam Chomsky. He certainly is not as mean-spirited as those individuals. I often come here to see what phrases will set johnny off more than anything. I find Olbermann quite funny, even though I am probably more closely aligned to Joe Scarborough or Tucker Carlson politically. Do I find Olbermann fair? Absolutely not.

    hit_escape,

    Don't you know that I have been trying to recruit pro-KO bloggers since DAY ONE. I post about it; I mention it the comments. I have one person who has now agree to write some pro-KO GUEST POSTS but he has yet to actually do one. For some reason, the OlbyLoons are always afraid that I am not going to really let them defend/promote KO despite all the evidence to the contrary. I don't fear any pro-KO words on this site.

    blue - I like a gallery idea. Good one!

    Cato - I'm not sure how your comment talks to the issue of improving the site. That you don't pick up on the "red meat" KO tosses to his far-left fans is probably a good thing - you are not reading their blogs, you don't know what they are all talking about and so you don't understand the full context of particular things KO does or says on the show. Chris Matthews called them "dog whistles", you have to be attuned to a particular issue or dialog about a topic to "hear" correctly. I like that term and will be using it from now on.

    Sorry about that, Robert. I think I responded to my own dog whistle rather using this post's comments section for its intended purpose. You are getting some pretty good suggestions as it is. I don't know that I could offer any better ones, other than maybe changing the fonts.

    I'm sure people have suggested video, but there would obviously be legal issues involved, not to mention expense. Besides, that could makes this site resemble Media Matters. I'm sure that the idea of that makes you cringe.

    It's well proven by his track record this guy has now tried eveything and anything for ratings success. It's just not meant to be. Time now - almost 50 years old - to get a plumbing certification from a local trade school and make a living - though I wouldn't trust him in my house. No kids, no family, no life, no ratings.

    Very surprised the "news" directors at NBC let him rant at the expense of their credibility. What else will they let Russert, Brokaw (occassional fill in), Williams & Co say and do

    10 failed jobs in 20 years - knocking 50 and nowhere to go except to work with Liberal election campaigns.

    Still maybe the classic (low) editorial of all time on NBC news was the goofball ranting that Bush didn't personally build a memorial to 9/11 -(re how long it took to get a WWII memorial) and then going off in a tangent about a Twilight Zone episode. Still unbelievable. You just can't top the perfection of insanity.

    Nice to see that you nutjobs are as insane today as you were yesterday. I guess you have had your daily allotment of the hatred on the radio. Yeah.. KO and Bill Maher are losers because they have never married and had kids.. goodness knows we need more children in America from parents who do not want them. Damn you people are so stupid.. There is a perfectly good song at the beginning of the show " weeds" that applies to most of you perfectly.

    Lyrics to Malvina Reynolds LITTLE BOXES

    1. Little boxes on the hillside,
    Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
    Little boxes, little boxes,
    Little boxes, all the same.
    There's a green one and a pink one
    And a blue one and a yellow one
    And they're all made out of ticky-tacky
    And they all look just the same.
    2. And the people in the houses
    All go to the university,
    And they all get put in boxes,
    Little boxes, all the same.
    And there's doctors and there's lawyers
    And business executives,
    And they're all made out of ticky-tacky
    And they all look just the same.
    3. And they all play on the golf-course,
    And drink their Martini dry,
    And they all have pretty children,
    And the children go to school.
    And the children go to summer camp
    And then to the university,
    And they all get put in boxes
    And they all come out the same.
    4. And the boys go into business,
    And marry, and raise a family,
    And they all get put in boxes,
    Little boxes, all the same.
    There's a green one and a pink one
    And a blue one and a yellow one
    And they're all made out of ticky-tacky
    And they all look just the same.


    Hey Robert, I have a suggestion for some fun.....Every so often, name "Keith's Friend." Who is today's "friend?"

    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez

    Why? Well a friend of Keith's is a rabid Bush hater that comes up with the day's most extreme, most inflammatory, most hate-filled description of "Mister Bush."

    Hence, based on Mister Chavez's statement....

    "The devil," referring to Bush, "came here yesterday....He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world."

    "Keith's Friend" for today.....

    I enjoy seeing the associates of the U.S.A.'s unhinged left wing. Chavez is so colorful, isn't he!

    I especially liked the, "smell of sulfur." I really appreciate good theatre.

    Maybe I am missing something.. besides Chavez being an enemy of this current POS POTUS what exactly has he done to earn such ire from the nutjobs ?

    O'lielly, you are amazing. Chavez is a socialist...Now I know your leftist leanings, (as well as Olbermann's), cause you to sympathize with Chavez's worldview, but I think I can safely say most of the U.S. population does not want such an economic system set up here.

    "The enemy of my enemy is my friend"

    So Cee , do me a favor... give me your definition of socialist ? Would a socialist give oil to a country who has declared him an enemy ?

    My definition of a socialist is a person who believes the state is the best arbiter in deciding who owns what, how much and where. I personally want freedom to chose how much wealth I want, and what I do to get it. I like the freedom to own my own property.

    How about you and Olbermann, O'lielly? Do you like Chavez's worldview that government knows best and that the individual should give up personal autonomy for the good of the masses?

    To get a "5" recruit a pro-olberman blogger. Seriously. It would give some red meat to the KO bashers an allow discussion besides the shade of KO's tan.

    Discuss what is right with the show. Even if you usually disagree with KO, there are times when you have to admit, the guy has a point.

    **************************************************
    Now about getting KO to do the same on his show have a different point of view.Have the guts to have someone say.."Keith I think your wrong" to his face.

    I still love the irony that this site which was made to critzise KO lets his supporters come here post their comments while the hero their defending is afraid to do the same on his show.

    Cee.. I think the government should play more of a role in our lives in regards to some issues and less in others. The government should clearly have a much bigger role in the health of this country. I think supplying for the needy and penalizing the wealthy is certainly a goal that this country should strive for. The area between the classes needs to be reduced in any manner neccessary be it revolution or other means.

    How about tying something to his infamous "punching up" comment? Maybe a "punching up meter"?

    Also, how about an online petition to get KO to debate someone from the right on his show without a producer intervening or a third guest interrupting on his behalf?

    Has Keith Olberman been moonlighting in his spare time as a speechwriter for Hugo Chavez? Wow, what a loon (Chavez that is).

    Chavez has been an anti-American nutjob his entire life. Pace O'Lielly, Chavez was denouncing Bill Clinton in the 1990s. It doesn't matter which party is running the country, a radical like Chavez can't distinguish between the two parties.

    SMG

    Thank your for your frankness, O'lielly. I defend your right to believe in and pursue your worldview. I just want accuracy in advertising. Call a spade a spade.

    Olbermann says he is an, "American," and defends his demagoguery as needed dissent. I just want people to identify themselves honestly.

    If you are a liberal, say you are a liberal. You're a socialist, then don't be ashamed about it. Scream it from the rooftops.

    I personally would not want to have the same opinions espoused by Chavez or Castro, but that's just me.

    Cee,,, Yes we have different opionions.. That is part of what makes America great.All of us are formed based on our experiences in life. Vive' America

    I kept trying to adjust the color on my TV set because the Kolorful Krazy Keith's skin looked looked like it has been scorched by a flamethrower. I guess he just OD'ed on the Man Tan, again. If the format of his show is any indication, KK must surround himself with fashion advisor "yes men" whose job it is to genuflect to KK and never dare mention how phony his orange skin and the shifting patterns of gray color in his rug look.

    Indeed.

    And if you are for protecting the rights of Al-Qaeda, as Keith Olbermann and the rest of US ALL ON THE LEFT are, then proudly proclaim it.

    Keith has repeatedly trashed the men and women of the U.S. military, the CIA and the FBI on his show for the brutal tactics they use to trample on the rights of Al-Qaeda and for that Keith deserves our praise.

    I've already got my signs ready for the upcoming political rallies.

    ** Democrats in '06...protecting the rights of Al-Qaeda even when the Republican won't **

    Yes!!! ImNotBlue is right, A new medium called Olberrstract is the natural evolution of Higher Art.. This MUST happen!!!
