Inside Cable News alerts us that Geraldo Rivera has had his fill of our hero, Keith Olbermann. Rivera, still smarting over Olby's cackles of delight regarding an incident from three years ago, let loose on "punk" Edward R Olbermann with both barrels:
He called Olbermann a coward -- specifically a "[female part of the anatomy] who wouldn't walk across the street against the red light." He then said he was ready to fight him, saying: "I would make a pizza out of him."
This of course got Olby all a twitter, and he quickly emailed his pal Dan Patrick at ESPN to make sure the subject would come up today. And sure enough, it did. Listen to the mp3 audio:
KO's hot flashes are never-ending sources for amusement, but we note all this here because it is yet another example of Krazy Keith rewriting history to make himself look good. Shall we lay out the fabrications in his version of this story?
Olby: Geraldo wrote a huge "blog about me the next day" after being removed from Iraq.
Fact: The blog article actually appeared over three weeks later (April 24 2003), after Geraldo had been reinstated with the troops and had completed his tour. Olbermann wants to make it look like he was immediately attacked by Rivera for no reason, but in fact it was Olbermann who fired first, on April 8 2003. And the blog entry was not all about Olbermann, as KO falsely claimed.
Olby: KO says he reported on Rivera making a false claim that he was at the site of a massacre.
Fact: The Rivera incident involved a site of a friendly fire occurrence, not a massacre. And it happened in 2001, two years before Countdown was even on the air.
Olby: KO claims Geraldo's blog states he was part of an "NBC conspiracy" to "avenge the fact that he [Geraldo] left, which is really crazy because everybody here wanted him to leave".
Fact: The blog alleges no conspiracy. What's more, it says nothing about some sort of revenge motive over Rivera's leaving NBC. Where did Olbermann get that from? He made it up!
Don't take our word for it. Read Geraldo's blog entry, compare it with KO's version, and decide for yourself if this amounts to Another Olbermann Lie.
