    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    December 17, 2006
    Olby Rewrites History...Again!

    We have spent so much time documenting the hypocrisy and lies of Keith Olbermann that it almost seems like old news when another example manifests itself. But when someone is as self-aggrandizing and reckless as the discredited sports guy, we just cannot give him a free pass. In this instance, Olby's been caught rewriting history. Again.

    MADMAN

    This is nothing new for the infamous, deplorable one. It wasn't that long ago that Keith lied about his own words, in order to justify lying about John Gibson. It takes some chutzpah, and a whole lot of desperation, to prevaricate about something that millions of people saw, and is preserved on audio and video. But Krazy Keith will stop at nothing to make himself look good.

    Now he has pulled the same trick yet again. On ESPN radio Thursday, there was some discussion about the Duke rape accusations. Olbermann alleged that from Day One he could tell that the case was a mess, and a bunch of people were lying. At this point he's on safe ground. It's more routine self-promotion, of the sort Krazy Keith is known for. Who can disprove what he claims he was thinking?

    But like all dissemblers, Herr Olbermann wasn't content to leave it at that. Possibly realizing how self-serving his words sounded, he elaborated further, and in doing so walked into another propellor:

    There's a reason we did this story I think once on the newscast, on Countdown. Once. And then said, you know what, this is a really dodgy story.

    And because Keith's never misses an opportunity to pat himself on the back, the next day he reiterated his claim:

    I think we did one report on this story and then left it alone.

    Those are Keith Olbermann's words. Here is the truth:

    March 30: Our number two story in the COUNTDOWN tonight, a nightmare at Duke and there are racial overtones, as well.

    April 10: The season canceled, the coach resigned, 46 DNA tests of every white player on the team. And, in our number-two story on the COUNTDOWN, every one of them, all 46 DNA tests today came back negative, no match.

    April 13: Dan Abrams, host of MSNBC's "The Abrams Report" has been breaking news from Durham, North Carolina, on this one all day on this. He joins us now.

    April 17: One month and four days after allegations of a gang rape at Duke University, no charges had been brought. Our number-two story on the COUNTDOWN, that has now changed...

    April 18: Our number two story on the COUNTDOWN as the names of the two university lacrosse players indicted in the case were revealed.

    Maybe there were more--we stopped at five. Yet Keith Olbermann now claims that he covered it "once" and quit, because he could tell immediately that the case was "dodgy". Right.

    Imagine how Monkeymann would cackle if he had caught his nemesis pulling a stunt like this. It would be fodder for days. But on OlbyPlanet, hypocrisy and lies are coin of the realm.

    "Maybe there were more--we stopped at five. Yet Keith Olbermann now claims that he covered it "once" and quit, because he could tell immediately that the case was "dodgy". Right."

    Ah, but reading those transcripts doth reveal much.

    The March 30th story is about the facts of the case. The April 10th, 13th and 17th stories are about how the prosecution's case is collapsing, how the details are still muddled and a lot of defense posturing. And each of these segments ran less than

    The April 18th story connects back to a previous incident involving one of the two charged individuals, but only has tenuous connections to the original matter (it came up during the arraignment).

    Did Keith make a mistake? Yes, he did. But I think this was a mistake of memory and not a "deliberate deception". Remember, these segments were very short (2-3 minutes each) and aired several months ago. It was not a story that was covered every day for days on end.

    Very gracious of you. When O'Reilly mentions that he said something three years ago--and he did, only he was off by one as to which particular episode he said it on--Olbermann blasts him for making it all up and bellows that he's a liar.

    Funny how double standards work.

    But it's different when keith does something isn't it? The rules seem to be very different for him. At least in HIS mind and those of his demented, deranged, deluded, and oh-so-woefully ignorant fanatical fans. Just another incident of Olby caught lying. Honestly, how many times does this make now that he's been caught red-handed? And no corrections. No apologies. No explanations of any sort ever provided. Edward R. Murrow of his generation my ass.

    Now this time, maybe just this time, to be fair, I remember he said on the radio show that he told his staff not to do the story again for there is no proof. He was reporting facts and did not go into details. I am sure he would try not to do this type of story like the Kobe Bryant case. I lived in NC not far from Duke and I know the story not well but I can say there are lots going on. The victim changed the story several times and there was no DNA matched. It is a lot of unknown in this story and he told his staff to stay out of it.

    "Honestly, how many times does this make now that he's been caught red-handed? And no corrections. No apologies."

    Why would he apologize on his TV show for something that he said on the radio? Not everybody who watches Countdown listens to (or even gets) the Dan Patrick radio program.

    He made a mistake. He should apologize.

    Did I say he should apologize on his television show? No. He doesn't apologize on the radio either. He doesn't do corrections, he doesn't do retractions, he doesn't do apologies. And why should he? He's got you Olbyloons to twist reality for him. That Nazi salute? Totally photoshopped. Until he admitted it. Dating a 21-year old girl? Why he was just showing her a night on the town as a favor to her father. Until he admitted he was living with her. So just how many times are you people going to go out on that limb for him, dream up an excuse to exonerate his bad behaviors only to have himself later contradict the well-crafted lies you have told to excuse his deplorable behaviors? He's a biased, egotistical a--hole who can't admit his own failings and you people are pathetic losers because you insist on defending him.

    I am not defending him, I am just stating the fact. The investigation is still going on. As I said it could just this time I speak for him. I do agree what you guys are talking about the Hollocaust, which is so critical to world peace. He had rather do some silly tabroid stuff which I am tired of it. Not to mention his characters and his personal life, he is a guy that I will not want to be in the same room or same party with.

    Odormoronn: "There's a reason we did this story I think once on the newscast, on Countdown. Once. And then said, you know what, this is a really dodgy story."

    "And then said, you know what, this is a really dodgy story"? Does Odormoronn have any evidence to support his unsubstantiated allegation that "[Odormoronn] then said, you know what, this is a really dodgy story"?

    Miss Keith Odormoronn: "There's a reason we did this story I think once on the newscast, on Countdown. Once. And then said, you know what, this is a really dodgy story."

    "And then said, you know what, this is a really dodgy story"? Does Odormoronn have any evidence to support his unsubstantiated allegation that "[Odormoronn] then said, you know what, this is a really dodgy story"?

    Keith is a psychopath, before you go bananas google "psychopath" read for a while and you will see why Keith does what he does. You will understand why his behavior, as John Gibson illistrates, while strange to most, is right out of the hand book. My opinion, knowing this about Keith, and watching his show is likened to watching a retarded person trying to assemble a computer. This spectical should not be shown to everyone for their amusement.

    I agree. Even his friends, few though they are, describe his massive ego and bitter unhappiness no matter how well he seems to be doing career wise, and his seeming pathological need to self-destroy his own career time and time again. I think he's a mass of mental issues. And notice how he attracts crazies like a moth to a flame. He speaks their language.

    You guys are nuts. Not only is the content of these editorials weak, but the reader comments read as though made by young children trying to insult their siblings. "Miss Keith Odormoronn" one writes. How pathetic.

    I know it's hard to defend him but let's deal in facts here shall we? Olbermann has a very long documented history of hurling childish names at those he dislikes. We're just following his example. When he stops doing it, I will too.

    Who's defending Olbermann? I'm simply commenting that this site's content and reader base come off as uneducated hicks. If your intent is to some how attack or "keep tabs" on Keith Olbermann, well you've not only failed but you've marginalized yourselves.

    We've "marginalized" ourselves? LOL. I want some of what you're smoking. Olbermann repeatedly uses childish names, hurling them at anyone he doesn't like. We're merely following his example. So if we've been marginalized, so has Olbermann.

    A careful review of our posts, for example, in the show thread from last Friday night would reveal a number of thoughtful posts, with research attached on a number of different topics. The only people coming off as uneducated hicks as you put it in that thread are your fellow Olbermann apologists.

    DUGUN looks to John Gibson for his cues on spotting social/psycological deviance? HAR HAR HAR

    Hey Right-wing chickenhawk dipsticks: Yo dipshit President wants to save his legacy with one more offensive in Iraq just like all the previous ones - he calls it a "Surge" strategy. Problem is, there seems to be no source for an additional 30/40,000 troops, spelling yet more stop-loss retentions and yet more forced redeployments for our abused soldiers and marines.

    Its tme for you all to put your money where your mouths are; sign up - suit up - put up! That means you, in particular, Dr. cee. I hope you paid attention during your neuro rotation - faith-healing doesn't have a great record in head-injury cases.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2006/12/18/world/middleeast/18justice.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1&ei=5094&en=8bbe0ca95f0b352c&hp&ex=1166418000&partner=homepage

    Here is an article that shows the arbitrary, self-defeating policies that you all have been supporting from afar. There is no way short of genocide to "win" an antagonistic military occupation - particularly when your methods are those of an obtuse fascist bureacracy.

    And this has to do with Olbermann's lying how exactly?

    You know, maybe we need to come up with a new term in the Olby-dictionary for his desperate fans who try to divert attention away from Olby's lying/slandering/smearing/dishonesty by posting links to articles that have nothing to do with that subject whatsoever.

    And when all else fails? Post spam links in the hopes they can get Owatch delisted from Google. Desperate aren't you?

    BrANDON,

    The term for such behavior on the internet has pretty been settled on - "troll".

    I'm just not content to let you guys hide from the facts by scapegoating one particular media personality - its bad for society and the country to have little insular enclaves like this fetishizing their own tunnel-vision. Is that really the only involvment or influence you want to have in current events; bitching about celbrity minutae?

    Its not Olbermann who is responsible for the cowardice and vicarious bloodlust of the chickenhawks at this site - its their own fault.

    "So if we've been marginalized, so has Olbermann."


    ...and you live at a hatesite dedicated to a marginalized ne'er-do-well? That's pathetic.

    johnny dollar:

    Details...details.

    He said "once" but he meant "once a week."

    Of course, if O'Reilly had done this, it would qualify him for WPITW.

    Hey, I just heard that Ahmadinejad's party looks to do very poorly in Iran's upcoming elections, in favor of a more moderate (i.e. less religious, more democratic) party. Also, Ahmadinejad was apparently "Boo-ed" enthusiastically by crowds of American-freindly Iranian students in a recent tour of appearances.

    Quick! These people are criticizing their leader! That's bad for Democracy! We must attack them so that the moderate movement can be swamped by the reflexive tightening of control and entrenchment of nationalist reaction that always characterizes a society under external attack.

    Breaking News
    MSNBC's Olbermann Seeks Big Raise
    By J. Max Robins -- Broadcasting & Cable,

    12/18/2006 3:54:00 AM

    Olbermann and MSNBC are knocking heads over a new contract. The controversial host of Countdown With Keith Olbermann is said to be seeking "north of $4 million" a year, according to an industry source, to re-up on his pact that comes due in April. That would represent roughly a four-fold increase over his current deal, believed to be in the $1 million-per-year range.

    Olbermann is looking for such a big pay raise because Countdown has been on fire, playing a big part in the current audience uptick at the network. In the key 25-54 demo, its ratings are up 25% year-to-date and an astounding 75% so far in the fourth quarter.

    But MSNBC brass may have their hands tied on how much they can pony up for Olbermann. MSNBC parent NBC Universal has mandated $750 million worth of budget cuts across all divisions, and this is hardly a politic time to hand out a gargantuan raise. Meanwhile, CNN may have interest.

    Still, Olbermann likely wants to stay put. He has been given an incredible amount of creative freedom in this, his second tour of duty at the network. Famously, he left MSNBC at the end of 1998 after clashing with management over being pushed to endlessly cover the Bill Clinton/Monica Lewinsky imbroglio.

    An MSNBC spokesman acknowledged that talks were under way but declined to provide details. Both Olbermann and his agent Jean Sage declined comment.

    North of $4M?

    That's a equivalent of a .250 hitter asking for A-Rod money.

    This will be entertaining to watch.

    To further prove my point as to how Keith attracts crazies like a moth to a flame, I just can't stop posting here myself.

    As this site documents quite thoroughly, the #2 story on Countdown is usually some prefab NBC tape, and it appears most of the transcripts excerpted above end with KO giving "Great Thanks" to the unspooled tape.

    Even KO's fans acknowledge that he's fairly self-focused, and I imagine that doesn't spend a great deal of attention on stories where he's just reading a Teleprompted intro. Therefore, I think his comment probably reflected that he remembers one instance of giving full Countdown treatment (interview, self-created report, commentary) to the subject.

    Judging from the excerpts, it appears the first story might have included extended discussion/commentary from KO, and there was one interview with Dan Abrams. Even the Abrams piece was "breaking news," so it might not have entailed any preparation by KO or the Countdown staff.

    You guys know better than anyone that KO flogs certain stories and basically ignores others. This one, he basically ignored, "reporting" it only when news broke out and using NBC outsiders to do so. There was no Special Comment, no righetous outrage, as in the Buck O'Neil Hall of Fame snub.

    After the initial report, it was proper to run breaking stories, most of which seem to cast doubt on the accuser. It would be unfair to the accused to ignore the flood of information that apparently bolsters their version of the events.

    KO's statement implies that early in the case, he felt the accuser's story had significant holes, so he has spent very little time on it. When you compare his show to other commentary shows, I'm sure the point he made on ESPN Radio, while perhaps not precise, is accurate.


    Sir Hamburger:

    You don't seem to get that what Olbermann does is an insult to journalism. I don't care particularly if he's right-wing or left-wing but the audacity of this chump labeling his show as a NEWS show when it is opinion is a crime against journalism.

    And now the idiot wants a 400% pay raise at a time that there have been drastic cuts across the board at NBC Universal? The only person Olbermann cares about is Olbermann so I'm not sure why you people waste your time defending him. He's playing you but apparently you don't mind being played.

    To the KO fanatic who decided they'd use my name to try and insult me:

    I guess you can't attack anything I'd said logically so you're resorted to this interesting but childish technique. I hope it amused you. But know this: nothing amuses me more than watching how utterly desperate you people become when confronted with facts. And nothing changes the fact that Olbermann is indeed a fraud, a fake, a phony. If Fox News switched to an all-Democratic cheerleading format tomorrow, Olbermann would be giving pro Fox commentaries. He does what he does solely for one reason and one reason only: to get ratings and to improve his profile and increase his fame. And you allow him to use you and he counts on people like you to defend him. I realize it must be difficult defending the indefensible and that's why I almost feel sorry for you, you small, pitiful, person you, who doesn't even have the guts to use their own name to insult me.

    "who doesn't even have the guts to use their own name to insult me".

    So "Keith's a fraud" qualifies as a 'name'. Interesting!

    I repeat, Brandon:

    Who's defending him? I'm just here trolling for neocon chickenhawk hypocrits.

    I have a consistent user name. That's more than you Anonymous.

    I realize you and Mike and Sir Hamburger are very desperate these days. I mean defending KO is such a very lonely business. And he needs such constant defending. First there were the naughty emails. Then the self-serving interview in Radar in which he belittled Dan Abrams And today there's news he thinks he's worthy of a 400% pay increase for doing nothing other than attending cocktail parties in Beverly Hills & Manhattan at a time when the entire NBC-Universal family of networks has had to make radical cost cuts.

    And just being you must be so....depressing? what with your sadly misinformed posts in which you all constantly embarrass yourself by revealing your sheer ignorance here for the world to see. I know it must be so unfortunate being YOU, so no wonder you hide behind the name anonymous or co-op someone else's name for your own.

    Really, I'm quite sympathetic to you all. I mean, it's bad enough being a KO fan in and of itself, it must be so lonely for what? All 10 of you?

    The word is "hypocrite." Ask Olbermann about it. He IS one after all.

    To Mr. Fraud:

    I would think it would take a pretty depressed individual to devote their life to attacking a public television figure they don't even have to watch. But that's your choice and you have every right to do that.

    However, you cross that line when you unilaterally begin attacking the intelligence and manhood of anyone who dares to disagree with your narrow little obsession in a public forum.

    Yesterday, you chose to do that with a poster who did nothing to you other than disagree. You went so far as to modify your own post name in order to further label that individual as a 'wuss' and an 'idiot'. You did that even after that particular poster asked you not to address them again.

    Today, you showed who the real 'wuss' is by your crying reaction when somebody dared to use 'your' screen name in order to make a point.

    It's called being a hypocrit, one of the milder words you regularly use to label others with. What you do is not debate!

    Robert, if you are paying attention to this, I hope you can see that there are two sides to this story.

    Really, if you're going to insult me, you should make sure you are spelling the word correctly. It's h-y-p-o-c-r-i-t-e. The picture in the dictionary beside it shows Olbermann's picture by the way.

    If you think I was upset, it's obvious that you don't know your elbow from your a--hole as I have more than suspected all along. And if we want to talk about cowardly actions, let's talk about using the name "Anonymous" or co-opting someone else's name because you have to have something to hide behind, cling to. I know it's a shameful thing being a KO fan but really. Furthermore, if certain individuals can't take it, they really don't need to be posting here if they have such delicate sensibilities.

    But you are right about one thing, there are two sides to every story. Mine, which is the truth, and yours, which is utter fiction.

    And by the way? I take it as the highest compliment that I've gotten underneath the skin of a few of you Olbyapologists/lovers here and revel in the fact that it's burning you up. Me? I'm laughing at you. But then again, I always have.

    Oh, and one more thing? What makes you so sure I'm a man?

    Oh, and what are we doing Anonymous? Hoping that Bob won't ban you because you or Mike "borrowed" my name? So now you're whining to him about fairness? LOL. My God could you GET any more pathetic?

    That's right, "Keith's a Fraud" might as well be 'anonymous', so how could I know whether you are a man, a boy, an it, or a she?

    And...oh no! Did I make an itty bitty wittle spelling mistake and leave off an 'e'? I looked in my dictionary under 'hypocrite' and I didn't see KO's picture there. Golly gee...I must have an outdated dictionary!

    Now. if you really want to get out of the gutter and back on point; I am not a 'fan' of KO, but I am a big fan of what KO is SAYING! There is a big difference between the two concepts. No one else will say it and it needs to be said by somebody. Nuff said!

    No Keith's, I don't give a damn whether he bans me or not. I knew he could see the URLs before I did it.

    Remember, you're the one who's obsessed with KO and this site, not me.

    At least I have an identity. Yours is a nebulous one, as are your woeful and pitiful little defenses of Olbermann. But he's getting harder and harder to defend isn't he? And I'm really beginning to get underneath your skin. Which delights me no end. but I really don't blame you for remaining anonymous. I wouldn't want people to know I was a Keith apologist either.

    "I realize you and Mike and Sir Hamburger are very desperate these days. I mean defending KO is such a very lonely business. And he needs such constant defending"

    Hillarious. No one ever defends Olbermann here, as far as I can tell. We all spend out time trying to talk you drowning rat Neocons out of your insanity. Talk about lonely! Supporting this war is about as rare a position as one could find these days - but you people hide from reality deep inside your pathetic hatred of one television personality who presents a factual critique of the stupidest dry-drunk trust-fund president this country has ever had.

    The name of the board is Olbermannwatch. Why it comes as a shock to you and Mike and dear, dear laughable Anonymous that we're here to Olbermannbash is beyond me. But then you people aren't exactly known for your common sense. After all, you seem to think Olbermann is actually telling the truth about any number of subjects when he's been exposed as being a fake and a fraud and a liar many times over here. Perhaps that's why you like to claim you come here to "discuss the issues", you'd much rather change the subject than deal with the reality that your hero is a self-absorbed, egotistical and oh-so-greedy ass. I don't blame you, I'd change the subject too if I were an Olby-loon.

    K's A F,

    That's fine - you guys can go on trashing Keith Olbermann to your hearts' content. I just like to pester you about things that actually matter.

    The name of the board is Olbermannwatch ... I don't blame you, I'd change the subject too if I were an Olby-loon.

    no, if you had half a brain, you'd change the subject.

    blah, blah, blah.
    Keith is deplorable.
    blah, blah, blah.
    Keith's demise is imminent.
    blah, blah, blah.

    meanwhile ... how's the war goin, shit-for-brains?

    Yes, he overstated, but he never really hyped the story any more than the station required.

    However, the fact that he hyped the stations major stories, he proves his lie of "he doesn't obey anyone" crap.

    They don't discuss the war. This is Olbermannwatch remember. All they can do is assassinate the character of an admittedly leftist but predominantly truthful political commentator.

    Sincerely,
    Josh

    The name Dr Doublespeak (for Cee)....could be improved on.
    Since Cee is a foaming at the mouth, lapdog for George Bush and every other right wing cause, it will be Dr. Lapdog from now on.

    Everytime I read one of rover's posts , I just shake my head and wonder if he ever looks in the mirror and sees anyone other than Sean Hannity.
    They have identical beliefs, where they will put any and every democrat and their policies under the microscope but wear blinders with the party in power and the ones who have made all the decisions the past 6 years

    But that's not the purpose of my post tonight.
    My purpose is to speak of some republicans who do have integrity.Republicans who are capable of looking at our changing world and evaluate it based on the realities of each situation,and adjust their views accordingly.To use reason, logic and evidence rather than the right wing dogma as Dr Lapdog,Rush Limpballs and Blockhead Hannity ascribe to.
    Two that immediately stand out were on board with the Iraq War from day one.But they saw the realities of the situation,the war profiteering the lack of post war planning and now the blossoming civil war that has mushroomed from Bush's doomed policies.
    The honorable Senator Gordon Smith from Oregon made such a reversal, because he wasn't afraid to break from the GOP good ole boys club.He realized that continuing a policy of having our troops being caught in the crossfire of this civil war was not only wrong "but possibly criminal"
    Joe Scarborough who is a moderate Republican just used the common sense that God gave him to turn his opinion around 100%.

    I also have 3 republican friends that have pulled a 180 degree turnaround .Each is issue oriented and feels that to continue to vote republican, is against their conscience and health.

    Joanne- 58 yrs old- She has been a lifelong dye in the wool republican. She has voted for every GOP candidate since she could vote.She has Parkinson's Disease and it's advancing rapidly.She voted Democratic for the first time in her life in 04' and then again last month.She says" How could I vote for a man/party that is not going to help me extend my life b/c of their views on the stem cell research issue." ?

    Steve has made his living as a fisherman for 35 years.
    Some background is necessary here-
    Using antiquated technology, power plants often suck up the entire fresh water volume of large rivers, killing obscene numbers of fish. Just one facility, the Salem nuclear plant in New Jersey, kills more than 3 billion Delaware River fish each year, according to Martin Marietta, the plant's own consultant. These fish kills are illegal, and in 2001 lawyers led by RFK JR.won the case . A federal judge ordered the EPA to issue regulations restricting power-plant fish kills. But soon after Bush's inauguration, the administration replaced the proposed new rule with clever regulations designed to allow the slaughter to continue unabated.
    Steve who is a traditional Republican sees this administration as the largest threat not just to his livelihood but to his values and his idea of what it means to be American.He has seen Bush's environmental policies up close.Steve now votes Democratic.

    Joe is a fiscal conservative and again has voted GOP in almost every election in his lifetime.
    He has seen how this president has spent like a drunken sailor on leave.He says,"How can I continue to support a man who has never vetoed a spending bill and continues to throw obscene amounts of money into a war , that we cannot win."

    My three friends and I now don't have to avoid talking about politics. Since they lost their dogma and gained common sense and reason, we have a lot more in common these days.

    All across this nation , people who have never dreamed they would vote anything but Republican are waking up and seeing with their very eyes how this president( and party) have weakened this great country of ours in almost every important area domestically and abroad.

    Oh look, Bob is using his cut and paste skills in multiple threads today. Yet another attempt by an Olbyloon to take the subject off of Olbermann and onto something else.

    However, the fact that he hyped the stations major stories, he proves his lie of "he doesn't obey anyone" crap.

    Posted by: Wickedpinto at December 18, 2006 06:23 PM


    I've never heard Olbermann make such a claim. In fact, everytime he does a celebrity gossip story he stresses that it's; "...another one my producers are making me cover".

    Oops - there I went defending Olberman. Gosh, it was pretty easy.

    Olbermann is managing editor of the show. He chooses which stories get on and which stories don't. And he himself has admitted that it is the celebrity bits that get the highest ratings, not his special comments, not the opening hard news segments. So there is no producers making him do anything. Remember, according to an interview that he gave to Jossip, he answers to "no one" at MSNBC.

    The stories "that my producers make me cover" line is a tactic Olby has been using for awhile. He uses it when he wants to run a really asinine, gossipy and unnewsworthy bit about some celeb that KO has some beef with, but wants to make it appear as if he wouldn't have run the story unless forced to. The Richard Gere gerbil "encounters" story is such a story.

    Brandon/Hank,

    Wow. You guys are like a couple of Middle-school girls tearing up the Teen Beat.

    A quote from Josh reads as follows:

    "They don't discuss the war. This is Olbermannwatch remember. All they can do is assassinate the character of an admittedly leftist but predominantly truthful political commentator."

    Josh, my friend, I believe you have just reached the epicenter of the problem with Mr. Olbermann. If you can produce one quote, interview, etc...where he made any mention whatsoever to being "admittedly leftist" I would love to see it. In point of fact, you will find him in every interview claiming to being apolitical...and having "no rooting interest".

    Nice try though...

    Ohio Mike,

    I believe that Josh, by using the term "admittedly" rather than "admitted", was clearly saying that he - Josh - admitted that Olbermann displayed leftist tendencies; not that Olbermann himself admitted it.

    Guess who? Only your ISP knows!

    December 18, 2006

    Bill O'lielly spends his time tonight drowning in his tears about how everyone in the big boy world of news media are always conspiring to make him and Fox News look bad. As if anyone would need to conspire to accomplish that.

    He had that drop dead gorgeous Asian woman on, you know the one with the high gloss lipstick, she was doing her usual pulling of the fan rope to keep big Bill from sweating at the brow. Her ability to butt kiss must be the envy of brown nosers everywhere. She did her best to build up his self esteem so deflated by Mr. Olbermann's constant slicing of bigger and bigger pieces of Bill's pile. "Give me back Phil Donahue!" Wahh wahh wahh!

    Bill was a vision tonight. Running in his suspender shorts pulled high above his waste and folded up over the knee. You can just hear his hard soled patent leather shoes running down the side walk and through the front door to cry to his mommy that the boy down the block is picking on him again.

    (Wiping back his tears) "You wait mommy one day I will be a big boy, a real man, and I will get even with those bullies, you'll see." "Yes you will dear," his mother reassures, as she swings a free hand around him while preparing his meat and mash potato dinner.

    And sure enough little Billy got bigger and bigger until he really got comfortable thinking he was tough shit. But size in stature of girth makes not size in stature of a man.

    Big Billy never did keep his promise to his mommy. Indeed he did grow up to be big, he ate a lot of meat and mashed potatoes, but Billy did not grow up to take a stand against the bullies, on the contrary, he works for them. Hired muscle that talks a tough game but when the shit hits the fan he cries like a snot nosed baby.

    The failed adventure to take an oil rich state has left this nation hundreds of billions of dollars in debt, thousands of Americans dead and Republican senators calling Bush reckless and even hinting at criminal.

    Hmmm, Bill share any of the responsibility for this? He seems to fear he does, after all Mr. O'lielly has been bragging all the Bush years that his show makes and breaks politicians.

    Today poor Bill was a shrinking man. Even Geraldo can't stroke him back to life.

    Rush "can't carry your water anymore" and just the same, poor Billy too finds it much harder to bull shit the morons who look up to him. The tough guy raises his voice to intimidate and everyone yawns.

    We all (those of us who are grown ups) knew the guy in high school who was just like O'lielly. A guy with size in height only. Loves to argue, and when begins to frustrate with ignorance, he becomes in flamed to win an argument through intimidation. All his claims that no politician can win an election without coming on the Factor and facing down the man would be king of tough guys, Big Bill O'lielly - that has been turned on it's head. Thanks to Bill I suppose, the House and Senate are now Democratic majorities.

    Fox and their lap dog, O'lielly, are the laughing stock of all media everywhere. Strait from the bowels of Pat Robertson's bare knee's women broadcasting the "news". The spawn of televangelism and "Christian News Broadcasting" came Fox News to put an end to commie liberal media like CNN. Rupert Murdoch is the Darth Vader of right wing propagandists everywhere. Moa and Stalin would be green with envy. Murdoch is green with billions from pimping and whoring "news media" for billionaires planet wide.

    How disheartening it must be for poor Rupert to see little Billy cry under his mother's apron!

    Poor boy!

    WOW! You losers are still all here wasting your worthless little lives talking shit about a guy who is so much better then all of you that even people who say they hate him watch his show all the time! And then you spend the rest of your time talking about him.

    Your a sad bunch of crying little babies who cant deal with a real man whos made it in the big time while you little bastards have nothing better to do then to jack off to internet porn. Well when you can tear yourself away from this dumbass hate-blog that is. Thats all this waste of net space is a hate blog and all you selfrightous f---s are talking hate speech. You should all be ashamed of yourselves!

    As far as I'm concerned hate blogs should be treated the same as someone talking hate speech on the streets. It should be shut down and the prick who runs it Mr.Cox should be arrested for spreading his vile hatered!

    You are exactly what you pretend to reject - a person full of hate. Yes this page has many pin heads duking it out over trivial bull shit but none of them are spewing garbge like you. No one is arrested for free speech in the world I lurk in and your calling for it makes you in my book a dumb f---ing nazi!

    No you cant be arrested for 'Free Speech' but you can be arrested fo HATE SPEECH it is not covered by the first amendment. Most people know that but what can I expect from someone who "Lurks"?

    No I didnt just jump in here, I was hanging out here for weeks last month trying to defend Keith
    but I realized that no one could get through these fools thick heads and when I came back and seen everyone was still just talking the same old shit just blows my mind. Besides I didnt return here to tell off some dumb ass 'Special Comment' so go play with yourself why dont you, if you support this Hate Blog then you not worth my time anyway.

    Keep trying. O'Lielly did the exact same thing. Create your own demon and slay it!

    Ha! So that didn't work did it, "Mr. Cox"?

    Nice try!

    What the hell is this shit supposed to mean? Are you mentally ill or what? Do you understand english because you dont speak it. What your saying makes no sense?

    Are you asking me who Mr.cox is? If so thats the bald little bozo who started this Hate Blog.

    What didnt work? My goal was to piss off you shitheads. That goal seems to be accomplished.

    What the hell am I supposed to keep trying?

    You want suggestive sexual overtones used with an aggressive tone I would tell you what I have said a couple of times about Mr.Cox.

    Its obvious that anyone who would be so obsessed with supposedly hating a man like the guys on this blog that hate Keith so much that they have to watch his show everyday and talk about him all the time. Its clear that these guys are really in love with Keith and they dont know how to deal with these homoerotic fantasys of having sex with Keith so they turn their feelings to hatred because they are so sexually confused that they just cant admit that they are gay and living a lie. Thats normal for Conservatives and right-wingers whom we all know are mostly closet fags.

    Now why dont you just come out of the closet and put on your little rainbow sash and have your own little gay pride parade you little shit!

    There is that 'suggestive sexual overtones used with an aggressive tone' enough for you? Punk!

    So you think that what Olbermann is hurling in his special comments is love, happiness, and sunshine? Please, the man is one hate-filled, ranting, raving idiot.

    Brandon,

    OK, how is that? Pick a "special comment" and dispute it. I'm very nterested in seeing if you have any idea of what you're talking about. That's the basis for an intelligent argument; not casting innuendo about someone's potency or character.

    With pleasure. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/15147009/

    Keith says lying is bad. But not when Keith lies. See, he told a viewer in an email that he admitted sending and later had to apologize for, that he'd just reupped his contract with MSNBC and assured the writer he could buy and sell them many times over. Just yesterday we learn that KO didn't reup his contract at all and was, yes, LYING when he wrote what he wrote to the viewer. (See NY Post for text of said emails. I believe the person he sent them to also posted them here).

    Keith lies when he says he isn't biased or politically involved towards one party or another. Yet he hangs out with Al Gore, Bill Clinton, brags on air about chatting with Hillary Clinton.

    So either he's lying when he says he's NOT politically involved or biased in any way and he really is and he's a liberal. Or he's playing you fools by cynically using a pro-liberal stance to try and up his pathetic ratings. Either way, he's LYING.

    and oh yeah, preaching about how bad lying is and then doing it yourself? That also makes him a hypocrite.

    And one more thing? Habeus Corpus has not been denied to American citizens and even illegals have limited habeus rights, which have been well-documented here in previous threads.

    And one more thing? Reconstruction at the World Trade Center site isn't one of Bush's responsibilities no matter what Olby lies and says about it. That responsibility belonged to the Port Authority of NY & NJ, the owner of the Twin Towers and the insurance companies. George Bush had no involvement in or responsibility to rebuild the towers, and particularly not by some mythical date as Olby claimed in one of his earlier commentaries. Again, he used the left-wing talking points to stir up emotions, fire his viewing base, pimp his ratings numbers, and hope that no one poked logic into his commentaries.

    All of this has been documented time and time again here and you know it. You just keep bringing up the same arguments and every time we point out to you why you and Olby are wrong and you just keep ignoring it. Either you can't read or you refuse to listen to reason.

    "and oh yeah, preaching about how bad lying is and then doing it yourself? That also makes him a hypocrite. "

    An email to a viewer? Changing conditions surrounding a contract under negotiation? The Bastard!!

    Dude, get some f---ing persepctive. I would sooner be lied to about a media personality's contract or who he allegedly hangs out with that about imaginary threats to our national security; frequency and severity of attacks being suffered by our troops; or our government's policies regarding survelance of US citizens.

    As for the 9/11 site - sure you can stress whatever interpretation of responsibility you want, but you cannot deny that a president has it within his power to make such a project a national priority - or that doing so might might help heal the rifts that have exacerbated since Bush took office.

    Habeas corpus? ever here of Jose Padilla? And if you's paid attention, the critique of Bush's power grabs at this point in history have not focused things he has done with the plenary powers he claims, but the POTENTIAL for overreach represented by the latitude he and his operatives have managed to arrange for the executive. When a president is legislatively given such latitude, and any legal, procedural menas to assess or counteract any such overreach is removed - we have a looming constitutional problem.

    SLOB says:

    "When a president is legislatively given such latitude, and any legal, procedural menas to assess or counteract any such overreach is removed - we have a looming constitutional problem."

    Yes, SLOB there are lots of Bush critics out there that hold this view, BUT there are many (and I include respected constitutional scholars in this number) who believe that the president's actions are consistent with constitutional standards regarding due process balanced with the duty of the commander in chief to assure the nation's security.

    But with Olbermann, the other point of view is never given an airing. It's simply Olby and his sycophants parroting each others' opinions. If Olby would just grow some cajones and stand up to a challenge to his opinions (like one of his competitiors with whom he is obssesed), I might have a little respect for him, but the cowardice he displays on a nightly basis prevents me from revising this opinion at present.

    "there are many (and I include respected constitutional scholars in this number) who believe that the president's actions are consistent with constitutional standards regarding due process balanced with the duty of the commander in chief to assure the nation's security."

    their numbers are comparatively small.
    like global warming deniers.
    and approvers of Bush.
    and neocon "crazies" who thought invading Iraq was a good idea.

    So what if the Duke rape case was MENTIONED more than once on Countdown? Olbermann probably just meant they had only one in-depth commentary on this historically insignificant piece of a NancyGrace-style story (IMHO, it's just plain boring). If there were a few additional updates as part of the news summary, big f**ing deal! And, hasn't Olbermann be proven right after all, in that it's turning out to be a very weak case?
    Along the same lines, did the president say that he had "never been about 'stay the course'" and didn't think he ever really said it!! Snow later admitted that OK, so he said it 8 times total. Next, Olbermann showed tape of 29 different times that GWB said "stay the course" in front of a TV camera - and many of these with strong emphasis!! So, is this a pathetic sort of pay-back for Keith O.?
    But, does any of this even compare to ordering the death and destruction of thousands of innocent people in Iraq, based on crap "evidence" of WMD risk to the USA?
    Then, taking part in a comedy skit about (not) finding WMDs in the Oval Office - laughing it up while the meaningless slaughter continues. At least he doesn't get too upset over every little death that flows from his assinine orders. Of course, he's very smart to avoid all those weepy funerals for fallen GI's. Actually, if he tried to attend all 3000 of them.... wait, that could make for a funny skit at next year's presidential dinner!
    BTW, sorry to point out flaws in your "war president hero" - you seem to be offended by any sort of real debate that goes in that direction...

If there were a few additional updates as part of the news summary, big f**ing deal! And, hasn't Olbermann be proven right after all, in that it's turning out to be a very weak case?
    Along the same lines, did the president say that he had "never been about 'stay the course'" and didn't think he ever really said it!! Snow later admitted that OK, so he said it 8 times total. Next, Olbermann showed tape of 29 different times that GWB said "stay the course" in front of a TV camera - and many of these with strong emphasis!! So, is this a pathetic sort of pay-back for Keith O.?
    But, does any of this even compare to ordering the death and destruction of thousands of innocent people in Iraq, based on crap "evidence" of WMD risk to the USA?
    Then, taking part in a comedy skit about (not) finding WMDs in the Oval Office - laughing it up while the meaningless slaughter continues. At least he doesn't get too upset over every little death that flows from his assinine orders. Of course, he's very smart to avoid all those weepy funerals for fallen GI's. Actually, if he tried to attend all 3000 of them.... wait, that could make for a funny skit at next year's presidential dinner!
    BTW, sorry to point out flaws in your "war president hero" - you seem to be offended by any sort of real debate that goes in that direction...
