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.
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.Â 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.
