    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    April 13, 2007
    Olbypocrisy Revisited: Yet Another Explanation!

    Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly book Culture Warrior

    The rank hypocrisy of the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann over the Don Imus situation continues to dog Krazy Keith. On the radio today he again addressed the MSNBC Scandal. Over past days Oralmann has come up with multiple explanations for his covering up for Don Imus. #1: It just isn't possible for him to criticize people at A-Mess-NBC. #2: He was going to withhold comment to let the athletes decide. #3: He was just following orders from management.

    Incredibly, he has come up with a 4th excuse. It must be a goody, because he now claims it is the "primary" reason for his non-actions. If all that isn't enough, Olby talks about Michelle Malkin, and some mind-bloggling news leaks out: NBC is about to bestow yet another reward on the discredited sports guy! (Are you ready for some football?) We have the mp3 clips for your listening pleasure.

    To set the scene, just in case you missed it, here are Keith Olbermann's comments from Nov 2006, explaining why people who don't criticize what happens on their own network have no manhood:

    Now to today's Dan Patrick show on ESPN. Olbermahn's sanctimony meter goes to "11" as he tells us the real reason he couldn't speak out publicly about Don Imus: he was protecting The Laughing Stagehand:

    It's explanation #4, but this is the explanation. Absolutely. That's the ticket. The fun didn't stop here. Olbermahn, with a newly-adopted air of chivalry, has decided he is going to come to the defense of none other than Michelle Malkin:

    The biggest misogynist in television news ("horse", "bag", "c-nt", "past her prime", and famous for smashing an Ann Coulter doll to bits on national tv) is now sermonizing about the evils of calling someone a prostitute. He would never do that, would he? Oh wait, he called all of Fox News whores. Doesn't that include Ms Malkin? You can't get this stuff anywhere except on OlbyPlanet.

    But the ultimate shocker has to be that, despite his history of racial insults, distortions, sleazy assignations with fans, and outright lies, NBC is going to reward "Man on Fan" Olbermann with yet another perk! This news leaked out toward the end of today's broadcast:

    So let's get this straight. NBC fires Don Imus. ESPN fired Rush Limbaugh, a political commentator doing sports. And now NBC is going to take the greatest political demagogue on American television and let him do NFL football?

    This isn't OlbyPlanet. It's Bizarro Planet.

    Why does he keep coming up with so many different explanations? He's had as many explanations as Imus had apologies.

    And does anyone else think that this is some sort of consolation prize for him that they are offering him instead of letting him give commentaries on air at NBC News? Does he even like football? He never asks that many questions or offers that many comments about the sports on the radio show.

    If NBC's credibility isn't shot already after their handling of the Imus debacle, this will pretty much seal the deal. I wonder how long it will be before Olby is boring us to death with some arcane historical fact and how it relates to the game. We know for sure that he will make himself part of any story (constantly) because he is so insecure and that he is apt to throw around misogynistic comments.

    I haven't heard that Brian Williams kiboshed the commentaries, although it wouldn't surprise me.

    They'd already made it very clear in the announcement of his contract renewal that he would not be doing political commentaries, but more "think pieces" and tributes, citing the eulogy-style piece he did when the Pope died.

    Thank god for this website, first time viewer.

    I keep hoping that this is the first step toward Olby's exit from "news." Perhaps he will have to travel a lot for game coverage as opposed to being at the sports desk in the studio giving us updates. Lord hear my prayer.

    I do wonder how the logistics of that would work out. And isn't he already complaining about how overworked he is now? How would adding the football lessen his workload exactly? i eagerly awake an on-air gaffe that will be Olbermann's "final exit".

    I guess we'll find out next week when the big announcement is made. The more he is overworked, the more he will retreat to the bathtub and call in sick. Countdown to meltdown.

    Come on, guys, cut him some slack. He only overlooked Imus's excesses to protect his employers, but mostly his employees.

    And, as he said, it took only about a year for Imus to solve his dilemma for him.

    A real prince he is.:)

    Grammie

    Well, there goes watching Sunday night football on NBC. I definitely won't be listening to this major tool,even if my beloved Falcons are on. I guess I could turn the sound down and have to hurl only when his face comes on screen....

    What an absolute tool........a Makita,even....

    G-Man

    Keith Olbermann spewed:

    "...you don't have free reign to shoot internally"

    "...you can't turn around and fire off a gun in somebody's face"

    "I thought I had a responsibility to my employers"

    Funny, tell that to fellow MSNBC employee Rita ("dumber than a suitcase full of rocks") Cosby.

    Dan Patrick is the only person at ESPN who still communicates with KO, who wasn't invited to the 25th anniversary bash this year even though KO went to high school with Chris Berman, the nicest guy on TV

    I used to not watch Sunday Night football because I thought that Joe Theismann was the most obnoxious commentator in football. Now they replace Joe with the most obnoxious commentator on TV!!!

    A boringMANN replaced by a NASTYMANN?!

    Dennis Miller was the best commentator on football from outside the sports reporter profession. Limbaugh not so hot.

    Merkle923, that is a good point. Olby's got some nerve calling out Imus for nasty comments he made about Contessa Brewer after Olbywan got caught red-handed insulting Rita Cosby. Keith Anally knows no shame.

    And didn't someone make Suzy Kolber cry? You know, that guy who treated her like dirt. What's his name?

    And it wasn't Joe Namath.

    Well, there's no doubt that Olbermann is known to be a jerk and he's probably an equal-opportunity jerk in that he treats women no better than men. However, when it comes to Keith's insult of his colleague Rita Cosby, he did do it via private email. On the otherhand, Imus and company berated Brewer and called her a "skank" on national television.

    There's a lot of comparisions here that are just too tenuous to make. How horrified should we be over his "misogyny" towards Paris Hilton when her "video" is reportedly all over the web as are pictures of her flashing the camera sans undies while climbing in and out of a cars?

    I know it's not pc to call women hos' but in Paris' case we are talking about someone who sold Whoopers in a bikini on all fours and who has posed in bondage gear in Vogue.

    If there's any horror over Keith insulting Paris, it ought to be because his show, while infotainment, isn't supposed to be the equivalent of a talk radio show, and his profession isn't that of a talk radio shock jock.

    As regards the Rita Cosby thing, the misstep isn't that Olbermann insulted a femle colleague in private or that his words were shocking and misogynistic. Goodness knows Rita IS dumber than a suitcase of rocks... The cannon fodder is the fact that he has such poor judgement and boundaries that he hooks up with a female fan and dishes the dirt about his colleague to her.

    THIS would be that sort of mishaps that could nail KO.

    I recognize that Keith Olbermann is the first person to gleefully pounce on any misstep by anyone he doesnt like, or that he shares a time slot with, or who holds different political views-- unless of course it isn't in his interest ala the brass upstairs.

    I also believe that men who label themselves as being liberal are every bit as beholden to beware the hypocrisy-factor when it comes to how they treat women as they would insist the "family values" types should be when it comes to family and sexual piccadilloes.

    But if you're looking to undo Olbermann professionally, whining about his calling a few female colleague dumb isn't going to do it. However, if he gets caught emailing insults and obscene comments to another viewer who has been critical, like he did in the email insulting Ann Coulter, THAT just might.

    Frankly, I've never understood why anyone, including our hosts, would desire that Olbermann be canned in the first place.

    It's best to offer the counterview to Olbermann's one-sided DNC fest, which Johnny does so lucidly, and to hope to get exposure on the web and maybe someone at MSNBC will start holding Olbermann accountable to something approaching the standards of journalism.

    Heaven knows THAT expectation would cause him to pack up and flee like there were bees after him.

    Things like his calling Paris Hilton a slut or Rita dumb certainly will not get him gone (if that's your hope) and anyone who gets emotional over Olbermann having done it, needs to buy a sense of perspective. The injustice of THAT requires the world's smallest violin...

    Please bear in mind that this is certainly NOT the case with the women Don Imus slandered.

    From all accounts of Olby, he has no right to throw stones at anyone over issues of racism, misogyny or mistreatment of co-workers, pure and simple. Using what is intended to be a national news program to call a woman a slut, a Jew a monkey (not to mention a host of other insults), and then use the same newscast to chastise another for the same behavior is hypocritical and ludicrous. I don't condone what Imus did, and he was punished.

    yeah, he's Mr Congeniality at work - gets along so well with his staff he has them communicate to him thru a mailbox. A real man of the people.
