Through the dark times when Olbermann Watch was shut down, it was the letters from our loyal and now suffering readers that gave us the courage and determination to continue.
OW was my favorite web site. I checked it at least twice a day. I thought you were just kidding saying it was going to end. I feel like Keith won. Very depressing.
So I go to visit one of my favorite sites this afternoon, olbermannwatch.com, and it moves me to a RIP page. Is this just a bad joke? You are letting the liberal olberidiots win by shutting down your site. I can understand your reasons for wanting to close the site down, that it is sometimes counterproductive to the mission of OW in that it gets more people to watch Countdown and therefore--possibly artificially--increases his ratings. Even so, it saddens me to see this site being shut down.
Though I rarely posted due to the nonsensical ramblings of many "olbyloons" I visited the site every morning to keep my eye on what Olbermann was doing so that I could more accurately know about his biases. There were many times that I referred people on billoreilly.com to OW to help show them they type of person Olbermann is. I am now going to have to watch the segments of Countdown on msnbc.com, like I usually do, and pay more attention to what he says and to what his guests say.
Truly, I hope you all will reconsider, although it seems like this decision is fairly final. But I will continue to hope. Good luck to you all.
Subject: Sad to see you go
You guys put a smile on my face.
Great job & Good luck in the future!
Subject: Say it Ain't so
In the wake of the end of Olbermannwatch.com I dedicate this one to you
Subject: sorry to see you're gone
I have been an avid reader of Olbermannwatch.com for some time now and looked forward to your daily report on Keith's latest idiocy each morning. I am sorry to see you have taken your site down.
Subject: Please Don't!
I hope you'll reconsider the closing of olbermannwatch.com. While not a regular Countdown viewer, I read your site daily, and appreciate all the homework you've done exposing the hypocrisy and arrogance of the most biased "news" show on television. I'll miss it very much if it's really gone for good.
Say it ain't so, Joe. Olbermannwatch was one of my daily reads. I don't see any indication of "more harm than good." Any person or sites that point out Dulbermann's hypocrisy is sure to do more good over the long haul. I implore you to reconsider and bring Olbermannwatch.com back. It isn't over. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell, no! And it ain't over now. Don't give up. Don't ever give up.
Subject: Re: OlbermannWatch signing off...
I totally understand even though I'll REALLY miss your site a LOT!!
Good luck with anything you do in the future!
Subject: No way!
I will really miss this site. I will not watch the show, so I need this site to keep up with the crazy shit this guy pulls. If the decision is up in the air in any way, I for one would really like to see the site continue. Thanks
Sorry to see Olbywatch go away.
I just wanted to offer my personal thanks to you for the public service you have done over the years in exposing the hypocrisy, bias and lack of journalistic integrity that is Keith Olbermann.
I wish you well in your future endeavors.
Good luck and God bless.
Subject: Please Keep Olbermannwatch ALIVE!
I could not stand to watch his show so this is the only way I can keep tabs on his spin.
Subject: Thank you
I want to thank you, and of course Johnny $ for your valiant efforts these many months. OW had become a daily must for me. Though I never posted, I thoroughly enjoyed the recaps by Johnny and you own observations concerning the malodorous one. Almost as enjoyable was the daily reassurance that the far left continues to rant, rave and make no sense. â€œTheyâ€ are simply not serious people. It is surely frustrating that the MSM and the vitriolic, venomous left may continue to ignore KOâ€™s incredible shortcomings as a â€œjournalistâ€, his breathtaking hypocrisy, and his complete disregard for truth. As we clear thinkers are aware, there is no more intolerant, hateful and disingenuous coterie than those who refer to themselves as progressive.
Again, your efforts were appreciated by more decent people than you probably know. Thank you, and take heart; the ultimate truths are on our side.
Subject: Closing Down Site
Now it seems Olbymoron won. I went to this site first every night before any others. This site opened my eyes to the fact that Olbermann is a fraud, a monkey posing as a newscaster. Without your site I would have never known that. I hate to see him "win". Now he'll be unstoppable.
Subject: Farewell Olbermannwatch!
Sigh. Sniff sniff.
I had fun posting on olbermannwatch and will miss it.
Thanks for the effort and the site!
It was fun but you may be correct. Perhaps when he does implode you could just post a greatest hits page that makes up the quirky backbone of the internet.
Kudos especially for hosting a wild west open forum!
Truly few people have cojones like that on the internet.
Covering Olby as long as you did is heroic enough. I honestly don't know how Johnny $ could sit thru his show everynight. Thanks for the site, it was a daily read for me and best of luck with whatever is in your future.
Subject: Please come back.
You were a beacon of truth and light and all those things that the Olybloons THINK that Olbermann is but really isn't. We need a forum to point out his lies and distortions. You saw how he would react to things that were said about him on Owatch, you have to KNOW that it made an impact. Olbermann's ratings went up because he began to pander to the extreme left. It won't last. I believe Owatch made a difference and it needs to exist in cybserspace. Please reconsider.
Thank you so much for all youâ€™ve done with Olbermann Watch.I will miss what has come to be an important part of my day.One day KO will implode or explode and you will have the last laugh.
Well, this stinks, because I only discovered your site about 2 months ago. Whatever are the girls at OlbermannWatchWatchers or whatever it was going to do now?
Can't believe you are going to let a propagandist like KeithO run around without any checks and balances. Surely it made your stomach churn to watch him blurt out his deceptions, but you did a great documenting them. Now he has broken his leash. Look out. We can only hope he gets hit by a car.
It's a shame to see you go. I went here because I couldn't stand to watch the show.
Good luck on your new endeavors!
Subject: will miss you
Never watched obly, but always went to your web site...... Sorry you are gone.
Subject: Thanks for the insights...
and the laughs! KO is a first rate asshole and you called him on it day in and day out... and for that I thank you. I would never willingly watch his program, but would catch it while working out at the gym from time to time. The depth of this man's stupidity is staggering -- I'll miss OlbyWatch, but I understand your rationale. Great job... but will I ever do without the daily laugh of seeing David Shuster's fat face upside down??? LOL
Subject: THANK YOU !!!!!
thanks alot for your 2 years of olbermann watch.i enjoyed your site and
had fun with the moonbats.wish you all the best in the future.if you
start a new site please email me.
Subject: Thank You
Thank you for your leadership and highly successful run on olbermannwatch.com.
I really enjoyed the service you provided.
The daily roundups were classic !!!
I'm sure this decision to cancel is a resource issue and your time is much more important than watching Citizen Keith every night.
Let me know if you ever want to organize an anti-Olby rally !!
Good luck in all you do.
Subject: All bad things must end someday
I think you are right about this. I watched this site for about a year. It was fun to see someone knock this asshole down on every one of his stupid positions. He will eventually crash - and has left a trail of so much idiocy that will prevent him from ever rising again.
Thanks for the site - but I think you are doing the right thing.
sorry to see the web site go, but i understand your reasoning who knows maybe shutting down olbywatch will diminish his exposure and lead to his demise - lets all hope.
good luck and thanks for all your work
Subject: Sorry to see you go
Thanks for all of the time you took to expose Olbermann's ridiculousness. I wouldn't give that show a moment of my viewing time - and thankfully for you guys, I didn't have to. I don't think you guys did more harm than good.
So long and thanks for all the dish,
Subject: Regarding your Removal of Website
I can say with 100% certainty that I was quite disappointed to come home today from work and find the website no longer with us. Beyond the distain for Mr. Olbermann's "journalistic ethics", I truly found this forum to be a valuable asset for the debating and exchanging of ideas.
In spite of contracts being renewed, I do believe that there is a place in the cyberworld for what you have brought to all of us. Without question, I would respect your decision if you chose to not bring it back to life, but hope that you have second thoughts.
If, in fact, you do choose to leave it vacant, I truly want to thank both you and J$ for the thankless job you have done over the last several years shedding light on a brand of hypocrisy that had been ignored all too often.
In any event, I wish you nothing but the best.
Subject: Re: OW
A great site is gone, and Olby might just refer to it by name in a victorious Dean-esque tone now that it no longer exists. I sincerely hope the shutdown was not a financial decision as it would have been easy to get funding for it from fans. It wouldnâ€™t surprise me if one of them would buy the site outright if offered the chance. Coxâ€™s reasoning was a bit weak for the closure IMO, slightly higher ratings and press love are no reason to disband.
Subject: Re: OlbermannWatch signing off...
Thanks to you and J$ for the site. A lot of us are going to miss it.
Closing your site is the media equivalent of an immediate pullout of U.S. forces from Iraq. It is an admission of defeat. If you cannot maintain the site due to your other obligations, then so be it and I wish you good luck. But if it is, as you state in the RIP, due to your concern that the site has done more harm than good....then I totally disagree. The blueblogs and MSM would have promoted Olby and facilitated his success (modest as it still is) no matter if your site existed or not.
We (anti-Olby forces) have no where else to go...perhaps you could post some alternatives to your site if there is no way you will return. Is there anyone else who does what you do? If not...that is exactly my point!!!! DON'T DO THIS!!! Regardless of whatever you choose, good luck and GREAT THANKS ;)
Have you no courage? Have you no backbone? Will you give up on our troops as easily as you gave up the Olbermannwatch?
The only thing worse than being beaten, is admitting your adversary is right.
If you were my son, I'd take you to the woodshed for wimping out.
Wolf Blitzer Watch ?
So Olbermann wins?
Subject: The Silver Lining
Yes, his new contract is a blow to all of us who support decency in broadcasting. However, with people like Glenn Beck, Bill Oâ€™Reilly, Laura Ingraham, Shawn Hannity, Mark Levin, Mike Gallagher, Rush Limbaugh, Neal Bortz, Micheal Savage, Michelle Malkin, and Don Imus â€œOlbermannWatchâ€ will never die. Plus, if Olbermann continues with his charades I may have to add Anderson Cooper to the stated list. Thanks for the fun and for the late night cure to the worst person in all of news broadcasting.
First, great job on the olby site. I only recently came upon it when a friend (I use the term loosely), who happens to be an olbyloon, told me about it. I started out just as a reader, saved me from having to have to watch it, one of the best things about it! Then, I jump into the posting pool, after discovering there seemed to be more olbyloons than olbydislikers, to put it nicely. You have to wonder about the people who so wildly defended him, given the crap he puts on the air and some of the crap he doesn't cover.
Subject: Re: Shutting Down Site
I have enjoyed your daily deconstructing the Misinformation Channel's (MSNBC) Countdown with Keith Monkey-in-a-Suit. I understand your stated reason for shutting down. Maybe you also are weary of fighting the good fight. But for some reason that escapes me he has been given a new four year contract and will be seen on the regular NBC news program. The fact that he is spreading like a malignant cancer is no reason to stop calling him on his lies. I would be even more inclined to inform your readers each night of his lies, misstatements, etc. But that's just me.
Subject: Thank you
You and "Johnny Dollar" did a great job with the site. I can't imagine how difficult it must have been to sit there, night after night, listening to all of KO's half-truths and condescension, and slander of our government. It's just hard to believe that NBC has elevated Keith to such heights, with the new contract and new exposure. Kind of like "when good things happen to bad people".
I just read that the ratings for Brian Williams are down 570,000! That's a huge amount, and shows that people ARE leaving NBC in droves!
Anyway, I wanted to express my appreciation for the site.
The abrupt nature of the shutdown sure was disapointing (and not particularly sensitive to the site's fans). And Robert's letter also left something to be desired... it had me thinking that the OWatch site had been hacked and that an Olbyloon was spoofing a Robert Cox shutdown letter.
If the decision to shut down was financial, I wish we would have had a chance to contribute to help the site contine.
I can't say I'm happy with the manner and tone of OW's sign off, but thanks for a wonderful site. I've so enjoyed your and Mark's company! Please update me on your endeavors whenever you are able and good luck to you in all you do!
I can't take it! I'm going through withdrawal!
I will miss the site. Olbermann needs someone to hold him accountable and now his KRAZIES will think they've forced yet another website off the internet. They are as dangerous as he is. Tormenting them with the TRUTH about Olbermann was one of my favorite hobbies.
MAN, talk about disappointed!!!...i loved reading your reviews of that nutcase..every night at 9 oclock sharp i would check it out. Things are starting to shake out over at NBC news to boot..they fired the producer today!!...BRING BACK OLBY-WATCH!!!
Going to miss OlbyWatch
Subject: YEAH, THAT GUY REALLY MAKES ME SICK, HE GETS WORSE EVERY DAY.
Please tell me this is a hiatus of some kind.
Olbermann Watch is needed now more than ever with Keith now being elevated and lauded by the mainstream media. Iâ€™m sure you saw the recent article in Rolling Stone entitled, â€œKeith Olbermann: The Most Honest Man in Newsâ€. Granted, Rolling Stone is not exactly fair and balanced, but given Keithâ€™s reputation, the title simply hilarious.
My mom and two sisters are hopelessly liberal who think Keith is â€œawesomeâ€ â€“ who knows how many more misguided individuals there are out there. An Olbermann watchdog site is needed now more than everâ€¦.Keithâ€™s assault on honest objective journalism must be stopped. Until now, Olbermann Watch was a force for good out there. You simply canâ€™t throw in the towel right now. Please reconsider.
Subject: Thanks For The Good Work
Thanks for the good work. Your blog was an outstanding resource and very entertaining. Iâ€™ll miss starting my day with it.
Iâ€™ve enjoyed this site immensely over the last couple of years. You guys were funny, informative, and entertaining. Iâ€™m certain I speak for many when I say that Iâ€™m sad to see you go.
Subject: sad to see it go
I hate to see the website close. I enjoyed the recap each night. I do understand the decision. Thanks for the hard work.
to see you go. Much thanks! You WILL be missed.
Subject: Olbywatch death...
More proof the end is near. God help us all.
Bless you and thank you for your service to mankind.
Just a quick thanks. I really enjoyed your sarcastic overview of his show. I predict that Olby will continue with the same viewership numbers until next presidential election, when there's no more Bush to hate, and will then get Mathews type numbers. That's his only appeal as far as I see it. Best of luck, and thank's for the great nightly reads!!
Subject: I am lost...
I am in withdrawal without your site. I don't understand why you had to shut down but I sure do miss it. It kept me from having to ever watch him. Is there anyplace we can go now to vent? I cannot tell you how much I miss it. thanks....
I am disappointed that you've decided to discontinue OlbermannWatch. It was a major useful forum to document Keith's disinformation campaign. I understand your decision and respect it. I've noted the major crowing pro-Olbermann and liberal extremist sites are exhibiting at the moment complete with their own lies not only about the site, but your reasons for taking it down as well as what it contained. This seems to be the norm for liberals and is another reason why I find liberalism so distasteful. I wish you well and hope that someone else may take up the banner so as to not allow liberal extremists like Keith Olbermann to run unchecked.
Subject: Say it ain't so
Say it ain't so... you people were the voice of reason, and kept the sanity that Herr Obermann is totally clueless about. Many of us sure hope you'll reconsider.
Subject: I hope you are foolin
Olby will certainly read your resignation letter on the air and count it as a victory,
I hope you are fooling him and will come back with a vengance.
However, your commentary has gotten to be pretty lame lately,
Subject: What a shame...
But I really do not believe your site was the reason Olberbut's ratings have gone up. That can be blamed on left-wing lies and the uneducated -weak minded public out there that still think Bush lied on WMD's. (but his ratings are still dismal) I wish I was not raising a family and could afford to take the time and money to setup another site like yours. Your site was important even if it did attract undue attention to OLB, it still put out the truth, and the truth is in very short supply in the media and sadly congress.
Thanks for the work you put in and thanks for the site.
(I guess I have to say I'm hoping it will someday return)
Subject: Re: OlbermannWatch signing off...
Are you frakking kidding me??!! He's NOT letting up! What?! Is this your version of party of surrender ... Cutting and running? Holy cripes! This frakking a-hole needs balanced somewhere! You're the most and best experienced at giving K.O. to KO!
We need our best troopers on this mission! Get your butts back in those chairs and slam those keypads! Do we have to Patton-slap you back to the front???!!
Subject: archive of the site?
Hey it's sad to see your site go. Why not keep it up as an archive? You may not be updating it but it could still do some good to have the old stuff up. It's always sad not to have access to good information.
Subject: Comments about Olbywatch
I believe you are correct to cancel Olbywatch. I have enjoyed reading it, but I think it only encouraged that moron Olby.
Just wait, he will stumble over the next few years, we can hope.
I do not understand how the rest of the world puts up with a biased fool like O.
Subject: RE: OlbermannWatch signing off...
You did a great job!
Subject: Sad Day
Just wanted to add my 2-cents worth about the loss of OW. As all have said, those with an IQ higher than an american hating demonut, this SUCKS. Pedomanonfan has WON, thus MSLADEN-NBC, now has free reign over the youth that wanted a second opinon to the indoctoration that the socailist school system has been feeding them involving the radical lefts hero's, PEDOMANONFAN. Really wish you would reconsider this tragic mistake for those that want TRUTH and want the scumbag called on his and the demonut's lies.
PS. not often a TOP website just dies. You were the at the TOP because we wanted the truth about this clown and his network.
PSS. no matter what the outcome, you did a GREAT JOB on exposing this bathtub LIBERAL and responding to your e-mailer's. NONE BETTER in that regard. Malkin's lack of message boards and absolute failure of responding to e-mail's is why I no longer read her blog. You are a TOP-NOTCH act!!
Subject: Try a different ...
Try a different approach. Dont give up.
Please, less than 1% of the people in the US even know who this idiot is.......... this site had very little if anything to do with KOs numbers. It did one thing for me, It informed me, I tried to watch countdown a few years ago and after a few viewings I saw who he really was and stopped watching...........then I found your site and was informed just how BAD HE REALLY WAS! There are 100's of 1,000's of us just waiting to find your site. I hope someone else take's on the challange and this site can continue, thanks for your work
you are doing exactly what olby wants. we need you now more than ever. believe me olby will be partying tonight if you don't come back. besides its not like he will last the whole 4 years he'll screw it up and you have to be there to document it.
Sorry to see the site gone. I'll bet I clicked on the dead possum 20 times before I got a clue.
Thank you--you have made the right decision--you were making him more important than he is
get this dangerous traitor off the air until such time i will watch joe scarborough or glenn beck how on earth can all call yourselves americans terrorist alliel would better fill the bill. shame shame may there be a pox on your house
What are you lacking to continue the site? Time? Money?
I really don't think this site gains any viewers for Countdown. I quit watching long ago but was a regular lurker at the site.
Subject: Mr. Cox, you are a coward
giving up and running away? only cowards cut and run. go became a secular humanist, you're not a conservative anymore.
