    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    September 24, 2006
    Spreading the Myth

    Here's a short montage from John Gibson's radio show. He's talking with a deep blue blogger about the Clinton interview on Fox, and the conversation drifts into the topic of ratings. That's when she brings up the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann.

    The guest praising Olby's huge audience is Maryscott O'Connor, proprietress of My Left Wing. Here's the mp3 audio:

    Maryscott is correct about Olbermann's numbers compared to O'Reillys.

    In the KEY demographic of 18-19 year old high school educated, leftist, socialists who's main news source is the Comedy Channel and who believe that Al-Qaeda's rights should not be trampled on by the evil U.S. military.

    Olbermann rules that demographic.

    The sad thing is that these lefties actually BELIEVE things like "Olbermann is beating O'Reilly in the 'key demo'". And why wouldn't she when she reads story after story from TV critics putting forward various spins on the ratings to create exactly the impression she has taken away from their agit-prop pieces.

    This kind of thing makes it all the more humorous when things don't get their way - they are so convinced of some BIG LIE - that they are genuinely shocked by outcomes they don't like. In this case, they don't realize that just SAYING the KO is beating O'Reilly does not make it so and so will be shocked when MSNBC shuts KO down.

    Notice how quikly she wanted to stop talking about it..she knew she put her foot in it and was wrong and she was getting called on it and then of course she has to resort to a cheap shot at Gibson.

    Don't you know that one of the prerequisites of being a liberal-progressive is the complete and utter belief in non-reality? Delusion, deception, lack of common sense and the inabilty to discern right from wrong is one of the requirements for being a modern day leftist. Shades of grey is their favorite color because for them nothing is just black and white unless it is of course "affirmitave action". They live in their own little conspiracy theory laced little world.

    > Notice how quikly she wanted to stop talking about it...

    To be fair, remember this is a montage of a 45-minute conversation, and the cheap shot at Gibson actually occured at a different point. I included it because it got Gibby to comment again on Olby.

    Gibson talking about saying things that aren't true? Does he listen to his own show? Even the part dollar edited wasn't true. When did Clinton have Osama in "his crosshairs." And President Bush even said that Osama isn't a priority and Gibson claims that we're actively going after him? Give me a break.

    To be fair, remember this is a montage of a 45-minute conversation
    ****************************
    Well the basic point was made..she was trying to claim KO was beating O'Reilly and got called on it by Gibson...It just shows how much in denile some KO fans are.

    And points to you Johnny dollar for remarking about the montage,thats something KO wouldn't do...like when he presents a edited clip of Bush he wouldn't make a note of that...he just lets it play like thats all there is.

    >"like when he presents a edited clip of Bush he wouldn't make a note of that"

    When did that happen?

    I just listened to that audio clip. What world is Mary Moonbat in? Apparently, they can't do math out where the buses don't run, because she can't tell which numbers are greater than others. Why do these people embarrass themselves publicly? I guess if we knew, we could explain why Olby gets out of bed everyday. Oh yeah, he needs attention and will get it any way he can, even if it's bad attention.

    When did that happen?
    **********************
    Oh lets see...how about those "special comments" where he takes Bush and Rumsfeld's comments out of context to launch those attacks at them,that would be a good place to start.

    OR

    http://www.infowars.com/saved pages/Prior_Knowledge/Clinton_let_bin_laden.htm

    And here is the source's bona fides

    http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Mansoor_Ijaz

    Is there any news article about Clinton having Osama in his crosshairs rather than some commentator on a FOX News or an opinion piece?

    There are just as many and more people who worked closely with Clinton who state that he didn't have him in his crosshairs. It's the reason why the Path to 9/11 had to fabricate conversations. If it was true they could have used facts.

    >"Oh lets see...how about those "special comments" where he takes Bush and Rumsfeld's comments out of context to launch those attacks at them,that would be a good place to start."

    He edited what Bush said in one of his special comments? What date or what commentary?

    All you need to do is read the 9/11 commission report. Here are some gems from Sandy Berger. Please don't make explain who Sandy "stuff top secret papers in my pants" Berger is.

    http://www.washtimes.com/national/20040723-111413-2905r.htm

    > rather than some commentator on a FOX News

    This is NonFactorSpeak for Michael Scheuer, who is terrorism analyst for CBS, who HEADED the Bin Ladin unit, who is not a supporter of Bush, who wrote the book Imperial Hubris, and who cites the 9/11 commission report for his information. He's "some commentator". Arguing ad hominem is always easier than accepting the inconvenient truths, eh non?

    Gibson is a hack.

    Nonfactor is correct again.

    At no point was the Clinton Administration even remotely going to capture or kill the terrorist mastermind who had perpetrated terrorist acts worldwide.

    And for you to imply that the Clinton Administration had the aptitude or the expertise to have Bin Laden in their "crosshairs" is pure B.S...

    ** Democrats in '06...destroying terrorist camels and tents in Afghanistan since the mid 1990's **

    Or read The Looming Tower by Lawrence Wright, known liberal and Bill Clinton apologist.

    Too many facts....too much sense....I am having reason overload. Please help....must...get...back...to...ignorance.

    O'lielly help...please say something....anything. It will be ridiculous and....comfortable.

    anonymous 12:49, thanks for describing to us the "key demographic" that is attracted to Keith. LOL!!!!!!!!

    Ok,, lets get this straight BOR's viewers are old and addled. America will be far better when these relics from the period of WW2 are under the dirt.

    Actually, statistically, there are only a few years seperating the average age of Bill's audience and Keith's. See, this is what happens when you BELIEVE the lies, distortions, and misstatements of Keith Olbermann, you come off looking like a sadly misinformed twit. Perhaps you should try watching Fox News or some news other than Olby once in awhile, you might be better informed on all issues.

    Johnny Dollar,
    Before tearing you apart I decided to give you fair warning. Think hard before you answer this. Is this board supposed to take Michael Scheuer at his word and trust him completely? In other words, if I have Imperial Hubris and were to quote from it you would accept whatever he says without arguement?

    http://intelligence.senate.gov/0210hrg/021017/tenet.pdf

    From the 9/11 Commission Report:
    "President Bill Clinton's counterterrorism Presidential Decision Directives in 1995 (no. 39) and May 1998 (no. 62) reiterated that terrorism was a national security problem, not just a law enforcement issue. They reinforced the authority of the National Security Council (NSC) to coordinate domestic as well as foreign counterterrorism efforts, through Richard Clarke and his interagency Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG). Spotlighting new concerns about unconventional attacks, these directives assigned tasks to lead agencies but did not differentiate types of terrorist threats. Thus, while Clarke might prod or push agencies to act, what actually happened was usually decided at the State Department, the Pentagon, the CIA, or the Justice Department. The efforts of these agencies were sometimes energetic and sometimes effective. Terrorist plots were disrupted and individual terrorists were captured. But the United States did not, before 9/11, adopt as a clear strategic objective the elimination of al Qaeda."

    "Sudan's minister of defense, Fatih Erwa, has claimed that Sudan offered to hand Bin Ladin over to the United States. The Commission has found no credible evidence that this was so."

    Claiming Clinton let bin Laden slip away is a lie. Claiming Bush let bin Laden slip away is true.

    Crash,
    From reading your posts, I assume you're a little stupid, brain-washed kid who would start crying if challenged. So I'll nicely tell you not to trust Mansoor Ijaz or anyone else close to the Sudanese government.

    O'lielly, go to your nearest dry-cleaner establishment, ask for a plastic garment cover. Wrap it around your head and inhale, inhale, inhale. It won't be long, you sorry piece of shit.

    O'liely you like dissing WW2 vets? I know a few who would love to throw you a nice "blanket party" to change your attitude.
    You need to go back under whatver scum covered rock you came out from under.
    why don't you be good litle leftard and go out and play in traffic?

    "Claiming Clinton let bin Laden slip away is a lie. Claiming Bush let bin Laden slip away is true."

    Uhm... not according to Bill Clinton. Once again, really, come back to earth. Bill Clinton openly regrets not nailing Bin Laden, but claims he basically tried harder.

    "Claiming Clinton let bin Laden slip away is a lie. Claiming Bush let bin Laden slip away is true."

    Uhm... not according to Bill Clinton. Once again, really, come back to earth. Bill Clinton openly regrets not nailing Bin Laden, but claims he basically tried harder.

    Dude,
    Uhm, you should totally learn to read and stuff. It'd be really narly if you could understand Clinton so you didn't make a fool of yourself on here. Saying you regret something so doesn't mean you let it happen. Gottit dude?

    Dude, this is what the KO idiots do when they can't fault your logic, they criticize your spelling and grammar.

    Actually, I later accepted the correction -- as it turns out, it's Olbermann's growth in the 19-35 demo that's beating O'Reilly.

    However -- if this is the sort of nitpickery to which you have to resort in order to feel like you're making a valuable contribution to the world -- by golly, go to it, young'uns.

    ALso, I do not consider myself a journalist.

    Damned few bloggers meet the requirements for that, and I ain't one of them.

    Maryscott,

    What we could make out was you saying "it's funny though that Olbermann is now beating O'Reilly in the really, really, important category...yeah he is...in the right age groups he is...yeah, he is...yeah...I don't even want to talk about it..."

    We don't hear you accpting the "correction" but we do know that the false claims you attempted to put on the unsullied air of John Gibson's radio show are the same ones the various TV critics, libreal bloggers and OlbyLoons have been attempting to foist on a gullible public for a long time.

    KO is not beating O'Reilly in ANY category and never has.

    Now you have come up with a completely different measure - "relative growth by age segment" - to claim that Keith is increasing the size of one segment of his puny audience faster than the most widely-watch program on cable news and one of the most top-rated shows in all of cable television. WOW!

    When exactly has this growth occurred? Because we can play the same game here to show the Keith's numbers are dropping, and doing so across various segements, times slots or however else you want to play the game. Deal with a few simple facts - O'Reilly is by far the top show in cable news and trounces Keith in the ratings, O'Reilly has a much larger share of the 25-54 demo than Keith, Keith has come in last place in total viewers each quarter since his show first aired. Got that?

    You wrote "if this is the sort of nitpickery to which you have to resort in order to feel like you're making a valuable contribution to the world -- by golly, go to it, young'uns"

    Consider it our little contribution to the broader effort aimed at disrupting efforts by you lefties to plant your lies in the media. What could be more worthwhile than that?

    You wrote "I do not consider myself a journalist".

    Well, at least we all can agree on something!

    "Consider it our little contribution to the broader effort aimed at disrupting efforts by you lefties to plant your lies in the media. What could be more worthwhile than that?"

    Electing more Republicans!!

    I am not a Republican but if that is what you want go right ahead and vote Republican.
