    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    May 3, 2007
    Keith Olbermann Runs Olbermann Watch story

    It was hardly a surprise that after we ran this story yesterday complete with screen grab...

    Fox News Accidently Airs Keith Olbermann Video

    ...and were then alerted by a reader that the Countdown staff had posted the image on their Newshole blog on

    Keith Olbermann's Countdown Staff Pilfers OlbyWatch Content...Again

    ...that Keith would give the story a mention on that night's Countdown.

    ...and that Jossip would then add our YouTube video to their site in a post decrying the self-referential nature of the media...

    ...and then Inside Cable News would update their post with our post containing the screen grab we took of the post Newshole put up containing the screen grab they took from Inside Cable News which was provided to ICN by Olbermann Watch.

    Now, if the O'Reilly Factor will oblige by running a spot slamming Neil Cavuto producers for being so careless with their B-Roll footage we can run the cycle one more time. How about it fellas?


    Of course, we blew it by tipping off the Countdown staff (my bad) BEFORE last night's show which gave them time t replace our image with a poor quality version lifted from MSNBC Flack Brian Stelter of TVNewser (who ALSO ripped off the story from us/ICN without attribution - must by something genetic among those on the far left... Olbermann, Stelter, Joe Biden, Diane Feinstein, Ward Churchill...etc.). That's the second time we've warned Keith off an embarrassing gaffe in the past month. I trust they are not expecting us to protect them like this every week.

    Chaz, I don't know about this being a conservative website, but I do know that OW cronies go anywhere and EVERYWHERE and will do absolutly ANYTHING to slime Olbermann, and no line has not been crossed yet (they already slimed then Rutgers team that got the brunt of ther Imus comment just to get a cheap shot at Olbermann, and used the Virginia Tech dead in order to get yet another cheap shot). Plus, Richard Cox, the idiot that runs OlbermannWatch (OW, for those not familiar with that ackronym) and JohnnyDollar are both the slimiest conservatives around on the internets. Dollar is worse on what he'll do to "F" up Olby (he's the one that slimed the VT dead in one OW "Countdown recap"). Cox controversies are spread all over the net, from using OW to jumpstart it?s otherwise comatose Media Bloggers Association, to harrassing people via e-mail for who they don't agree with him (there was a link I saw that had LONG e-mail exchange, I'll have to find it again, but there have been some people that report that who don?t agree with him get their e-mail addresses published without permission, which is a HORRIBLE move), and all one needs to say is "karmabites1"; to stir up ALOT of controversy (and who do you think were behind THAT crazy 110% of the way?). Simpily put, Cox and "Dollar" are two slimy people that need to be put into their place. Oh, and they don't even LOOK at the ratings, assuming that KO is ALWAYS in last place.

    Comment by darkpower May 3, 2007 @ 3:54 am

    This is a long rambling comment from the ICN board by darkpower, who has commented here and mainly comments on the KO forums. HE/SHE seems to be accusing COX & DOLLAR of OW of creating the Karmabites thing. Just thought you guys should know, just in case Keith Olbermann desides to sue you or something.

    BTW: this comment was in a thread ("Noooooooooooooo!) about Rosie O'Donnel returning to have a cable program.

    I think you guys should "nip this in the bud", because I see a little revisionist history about to begin with OW being blamed for Olbermann's one night stand with a fan.

    I appreciate the concern but the OlbyLoons have been flogging that line from day one. One has only to note that this OlbyLoon fails to provide a single link to support his/her wacky theories.

    I've already explained this before on OW but it's been a while - the woman who published the KarmaBites blog approached me two months before she went public asking that OW run with her story. I told her that we would not publish her story without having met her in person and only if there was some legitimate news angle to the story - that Keith violated corporate policy somehow or broke the law or something substantive. I made it quite clear that we were not interested in publishing an account of some unhappy personal encounter with Keith. After some back and forth via email she went away and a few weeks later her blog appeared. I've not communicated with her since. Even the OlbyLoons at Ko.o have come to realize that neither I nor J$ or anyone else contributing to OW had anything to do with KarmaBites.

    As for the rest of the nonsense posted by DarkPower, to quote Mel Brooks, it sounds like more "nonsensical ravings of a lunatic mind".

    Robert, great thanks for clarifying.

    Poor Steve Lyons.

    It just so happens that the ICN commenter posted a video to YouTube which he submitted to YouTube Olbemann Watch channel. You can watch Dark Power himself take me to task on his own video (a few posts above this one).

    R.Cox: Please keep Eschatz away from the episode summary department. Eschatz is the Sanjaya of Olbermann Watch.

    Robert, I highly doubt KarmaBites asked you to "run" with her story. She had the opportunity to do that with Lloyd Grove. He admitted to having some copies of the KO emails on during a Q&A last October. As detailed on her blog, Karma struggled many times about publishing the emails.

    I don't doubt that she contacted you, but I would be very surprised if she asked you to run with the story.


    Is that right? And you base this insight on what exactly?

    Why don't you drop her a line and ask her.

    OK, I will.


    And I look forward to your eating crow right here on Olbermann Watch.

    I seriously doubt I'll be eating crow...


    WASHINGTON — It's gloomy out there. Men and women, whites and minorities _ all are feeling a war-weary pessimism about the country seldom shared by so many people.

    Only 25 percent of those surveyed say things in the U.S. are going in the right direction, according to an AP-Ipsos poll this month. That is about the lowest level of satisfaction detected since the survey started in December 2003.

    Rarely have longer-running polls found such a rate since the even gloomier days of 1992 ahead of the first President Bush's re-election loss to Democrat Bill Clinton.

    The current glumness is widely blamed on public discontent with the war in Iraq and with President Bush. It is striking for how widespread the mood is among different groups of people.

    Women and minorities are less content than men and whites, which has been true for years. But all four groups are at or near record lows for the AP-Ipsos poll, and at unusually low levels for older surveys, as well.

    Ann Bailey, 69, a retired school secretary in Broken Arrow, Okla., is a conservative who believes the country is on the wrong track. That sentiment should raise alarms for Republicans hoping to hold the White House and recapture Congress next year.

    She cites a widespread lack of honesty plus immigration, gasoline prices and Iraq _ where a son and grandson are serving.

    "As much as I hate it, I think they need to finish up what they're doing and get out of there," said Bailey. "I think we should step out and say, 'OK, now you solve your problem. We've done the best we can do.'"

    Larry Ward, a moderate Republican from Pocomoke, Md., also senses the U.S. is heading the wrong way.

    "We're still fighting a war we can't win," said Ward, 47, who operates a tree service. "That's a real big thing for me."

    Three in 10 men and two in 10 women said this month they think the country is on the right track, down from nearly half of each who felt that way at the end of 2003.

    By race, 28 percent of whites and 18 percent of minorities said the same _ just over half their rates of optimism from late 2003.

    Asked in April why they felt things were veering in the wrong direction, one-third overall volunteered the war and one-fourth blamed poor leadership.

    Nine percent faulted the economy, 8 percent a loss of moral values and 5 percent gasoline prices.

    "We need to get out of war, get our economy back up, quit spending money outside of America and bring it here," said Democrat Lisa Pollard, 45, an insurance company analyst in Arlington, Texas. "It all starts at the White House."

    When voter optimism hits such low levels, "It's not being driven by any specific group. It's a general kind of malaise that's across the board," Republican pollster Neil Newhouse said.
