    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    April 16, 2007
    MSM KO Bandwagon #321: TVWeek

    It's been all of a week since there was a mainstream media bandwagon article promoting the ratings-challenged Keith Olbermann. So enter TVWeek who has helpfully prepared a list of the Top 10 Most Powerful People in TV News. Their list?


    1. Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of Fox News

    2. Steve Capus, President of NBC News

    3. Charles Gibson, Anchor, ABC's 'World News'

    4. David Westin, President of ABC News

    5. Tim Russert, Managing editor and moderator of 'Meet the Press' and senior VP and Washington bureau chief for NBC News

    6. Keith Olbermann, Host of MSNBC's 'Countdown With Keith Olbermann'

    7. Sean McManus, President of CBS News

    8. Jon Klein, President of CNN/U.S.; Ken Jautz, Executive VP of CNN Worldwide; Jim Walton, President of CNN Worldwide

    9. N.S. Bienstock, Talent agency

    10. Jon Stewart, Anchor of Comedy Central's 'The Daily Show'


    And their twisted logic on why Olbermann ranks so high on this list?

    Why he was chosen: The utter failure of Phil Donahue on MSNBC in 2003 was presumed to mean left-leaning hosts of prime-time TV shows were an endangered species. But, lo, a star rose in the west over Secaucus, N.J., and its name was Keith Olbermann.First-quarter 2007 ratings for the cranky Mr. Olbermann's "Countdown" rose 76 percent year-to-year to an average 713,000 viewers and helped galvanize MSNBC's increasingly popular, politically obsessed lineup; even the first telecast of "Tucker Carlson" perked up 33 percent to 238,000 viewers in the first quarter.Mr. Olbermann's take-no-prisoners approach frequently means he gives a demographic beat-down to his CNN competitor, Paula Zahn.

    Demographic beat-down? Have they seen his recent ratings? Olbermann isn't the one delivering "beat-downs", he's the one getting them from Zahn, Nancy Grace, and of course, O'Reilly. But then again, how seriously can you take a list who lists a comedian as one of the most powerful people in news?

    If you count Olbermann, there are two comedians on that list.

    "But then again, how seriously can you take a list who lists a comedian as one of the most powerful people in news?"

    I dunno, how seriously can you take it, OW?

    I take Olbermannwatch far more seriously than I do the delusions of the average Olbyloon.

    And Brandon, as long as you consider people you disagree with 'loons', you will remain the ultimate loon yourself.

    Look up the word hypocrisy in the dictionary, and you should find your picture beside the definition.

    LMAO!

    Thanks Mike for posting the typical Olbyloon reaction.

    But then again, how seriously can you take a list who lists a comedian as one of the most powerful people in news?

    Comedian? And you are referring to Roger Ailes for sure!

    I dont know how seriously I can take a source that doesnt recognize the power Jon Stewart has.

    Typical left wing media trash. They list Roger Ailes as the all-encompassing conservative and then individualize the rest of the left wing hacks. I do give them credit for putting Roger at the top where he belongs.
    Here how the list should have looked.
    Roger Ailes
    Bill O'Reilly
    Sean Hannity
    Chris Wallace
    Brit Hume
    Glenn Beck
    Rest of the left wing losers

    The idea that someone with mediocre ratings like Olbermann could be considered "powerful" is a joke.

    As I was saying, RW Bu$hwipe posters in this board are MORONS:

    So called "CONSERVATIVES" by The Factor:

    Bill O'Reilly--------------Self described "Independent"
    Sean Hannity------------"Real Reagan Conservative"
    Chris Wallace------------Who?
    Brit Hume----------------Hardcore Bu$shwipe
    Glenn Beck---------------Alcoholic "Real Reagan Conservative"

    Odd, The Factor didn't dare to include Rush Limpo, Weiner Savage, mAnn Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Laura Ingraham, Medved, Levin...or any of the "intellectual conservatives"

    Of course not, RW Bushwipe listeners have never read Bill Krystol, just to mention a mediocre one, instead they lovingly wait for the BUSHWIPE talking heads to regurgitate it for them.

    Thank you Bob.

    Brandon: "Thanks Mike for posting the ypical Olbyloon reaction"

    This is typical olberhater loon reaction. I make a post that actually makes a point, and you counter with an insult....that doesn't make any point at all..

    And Brandon, as long as you consider people you disagree with 'loons', you will remain the ultimate loon yourself.

    Look up the word hypocrisy in the dictionary, and you should find your picture beside the definition.

    lil mikey, using the "I know you are but, what am I" proving his hypocrisy, yet again!

    "I'm a Real Raygun Conservative"

    Yup. That's confidence in Moron in Chief, right there.

    While Moron in Chief is still in office.

    LOL!!

    Run away from Moron in Chief, you Bush Supporters, while you yell for all the world to hear
    "I'M ABANDONING STINK IN CHIEF, BUT I'M A REAL RAYGUN CONSERVATIVE!!"


    Thank you Bob!!

    Good Jeff: You've learned a lot of words and phrases from me. I see you've just parroted out another one.

    Soon, you'll be posting at the third grade level.

    Thanks Mike for posting the typical Olbyloon reaction.
    Posted by: Brandon at April 16, 2007 3:37 PM

    The only thing that's 'typical' Brandon, is that when you use the word 'typical' in your post, it typically means someone said something you either don't understand, can't refute, or more typically, BOTH.

    How typical of you!

    Laughing My Ass Off!

    Good Jeff: You've learned a lot of words and phrases from me. I see you've just parroted out another one.

    No lil mikey, proving you are an ignorant, hypocritical prick and parroting are two different scenarios. You make it way too easy! Gettin' kinda boring, now.

    As long you have been 'laughing my ass off', sometimes repeating it two or three times a post, I can't help but ask.

    Exactly how big of an ass are, oops, do you have.

    I would have thought by now an ass of any size would have been laughed away and you are now working on vital organs and appendages.:)

    You are a real genius. The article was from "TV" newsier dumbass. Not Talk Radio newsier. That is why I did not include Rush, Savage, or Ann Coulter. You liberals are the stupidest simps on the planet.

    No Jeff: If you want to elevate your posting level to the third grade, you're going to have to lose the "gettin kinda" cowboy talk.

    Cowboy!

    Factor, I disagree with you in this respect.

    They are true to their agenda, which is to insist that KO is a true, powerful newsman while constantly using TV commentators and radio talk show hosts/commentators as their Tu Quoque rationalization.

    Stupid as in doesn't and can't know any better? No.

    Devious? Yes.

    Mike made a point? That would be a first! Alert the media!

    That's the list, according to you REAL CONSERVATIVE BUSHWIPE.

    You said the original list wasn't good enough,
    then went on to provide YOUR LIST.

    Here how the list should have looked.
    Roger Ailes
    Bill O'Reilly--------------Self described "Independent"

    Off they go, the few remaining in the f---s News line up:

    John Gibson ------------(And the War on Xmas)
    Neil Cavuto-------------(Some "financial advice")
    and the new-clown appearances in Fox Noise.

    Of course, the BU$HWIPE FACTOR overlooked the fact that BU$HWIPE Fox Noise viewers,
    i.e.
    Bill O'Reilly---------viewers
    Sean Hannity---------viewers
    Chris Wallace---------viewers
    Brit Hume---------viewers
    Glenn Beck---------viewers (Not in Fux Noise)

    are DUMB, STUPID, and have to wait for their Cult Leaders to tell them what to think.

    Yeah!

    Let's name all "Top 10 Most Powerful People in TV News"
    everyone in the Fux Noise Channel.

    No Jeff: If you want to elevate your posting level to the third grade, you're going to have to lose the "gettin kinda" cowboy talk.

    France Warned CIA of Hijack Plot in 2001

    ANGELA DOLAND | AP | April 16, 2007 05:11 PM EST


    PARIS — Nine months before al-Qaida slammed airliners into the World Trade Center, French intelligence suspected the terror network was plotting a hijacking _ possibly involving a U.S. airline _ and warned the CIA, former French intelligence officials said Monday.

    But the French warning hinted at a plot in Europe, not the United States, and there was no suggestion of suicide attacks or multiple planes. One former official said al-Qaida may have leaked misinformation to divert intelligence agencies from the bigger, deadlier plot to come on Sept. 11, 2001.

    The warning was another example of how intelligence agents sensed al-Qaida was hard at work in the months leading up to Sept. 11 but were unable to piece together fragmented warnings into a coherent plot.

    Like Bush would have had his vacation disrupted anyway ( in Aug 01')

    Chicken Blogger, you just told me on another thread that you spend only twenty minutes a week here. You are already past your limit. Or are you borrowing some from next week?

    This AP report sounds very credible and ties in with much of the info gathered and released since 9/11.

    Unfortunately, the one piece of info that might have enabled all those dots to be connected was available but not usable because:

    "Aug. 17: Moussaoui is detained on immigration concerns after arousing suspicions by seeking to buy time on a flight simulator for jetliners at a Minnesota flight school. While Moussaoui is in custody, federal agents attempt to get a search warrant for his computer. The request is denied by the Justice Department due to lack of evidence."

    From Newsday timeline of Moussaoui.

    Then you end your post with the following piece of crap (of course, that is what chickens provide us with in large amounts):

    "Like Bush would have had his vacation disrupted anyway ( in Aug 01')"

    First, nine months before 9/11 was on the cusp of the Clinton admin leaving and the Bush admin taking office, and if applied literally was in Clinton's admin.

    Second, if you believe that President Bush would not have interrupted his vacation to prevent 9/11 you have a terminal case of loonitis.

    Grammie

    It's unfortunate that one of the so-called 10 most powerful people in TV news frequently gets fourth-place ratings overall. The Magnificent Olbywan is consistent if not truthful.

    Posted by: Janet Hawkins at April 16, 2007 8:18 PM

    Yeah...Bush was all over preventing 9/11.( while clearing brush ) and ignoring memoes like"BinLaden to strike in America !"

    The excuses never stop.

    SItting like a deer in the headlights while our country was attacked( when Chimpy didn't know if it was a nuclear attack or what)
    is another prime example of how a great leader acts.

    As I said, TERMINAL LOONITIS!

    Grammie

    right !
    None of it happened even though it's all captured on film.

    Could you be anymore brainwashed !

    Chicken Blogger, now that you have expanded on your original comments I have no choice but to change my original assessment of you.

    You don't have terminal loonitis, you are in the last throes of comatose loonitis.

    You just keep on believing that the President of the United States, any President of the United States, would have not interrupted his vacation to prevent 9/11.

    If that gives solace in your last days who am I to deny you.

    Grammie

    Bill O'Reilly who has over 2 million viewers night after night.

    The O'Reilly Factor that is rated number 1 in prime time cable news doesn't make the list.

    Olby who has a hard time holding onto 'that grip' on second place, makes the list.

    Who ever made up that list better go look in the mirror. There's a brown spot on his nose and it smells like s**t.
