    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    May 7, 2007
    Keith Olbermann Link Roundup May 7 , 2007

    Media Double Standard Dept: Can you imagine what the reaction would be...
    The Cable Game

    Welcome to the world of double standards: MSNBC uses Keith Olbermann in last Thursday night's debate, and the MSM doesn't so much as notice. That left Rudy Giuliani to complain about Olbermann's role at the Reagan Library debate as reported by the AP's David Bauder.

    Brit Hume is a "journalist"; Keith Olbermann is "partisan"
    Salon/Glenn Greenwald

    On Friday, the Associated Press -- in the course of reporting that the Giuliani campaign complained to NBC News that Keith Olbermann was assigned to cover the GOP presidential debate -- made certain statements which brightly reveal the current state of our political press. Think Progress has highlighted several misleading aspects of the AP story, and Joan Walsh today dissects several other glaring flaws with the story. I want to focus on what this episode so potently demonstrates about modern "journalism."

    Olbermann's Anti-Bush Debate Coverage, Republicans 'Belligerent' Toward Iran
    Newsbusters

    During Thursday's Republican presidential debate, which was dominated by questions that sounded like they were made up by liberal bloggers, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann, known for his many anti-conservative and anti-Bush rants, got to anchor the cable network's debate coverage.

    Did AP Stretch Traditional Notions Of Objectivity When It Repeated Giuliani Talking Points?
    TalkLeft

    This line in an AP news article is, in itself, stretching traditional notions of journalistic objectivity past the breaking report. This sentence is an opinion, namely, the opinion of the Giuliani campaign repeated as a fact by an AP news report. It also misspells the word ideologue. Can the Associated Press, after this egregious breach of journalistic ethics, continue to cover the Giuliani Presidential campaign? Of course it can. It screwed up. It should admit its error and move on. Keith Olberman, by the way, did not screw up. He labelled his Special Comment um, a special comment, not news. AP did not label its editorializing as opinion. The AP needs a lesson in journalism it seems to me.

    Time Magazine's List of Entertainers Who Shape Our World
    I Am a TV Junkie

    Surprisingly also not on the list, probably because MSNBC has a partnership deal with Newsweek, is Keith Olbermann. Also not listed, neither Colbert nor Stewart.

    Another MSM take on the "opinion" journalism of Olbermann.

    Yes, Olbermann believes that the current Administration has created a "form of fascism" by which they rule this country.

    And he believes that the Republican Party is committing domestic terrorism.

    But that doesn't mean he can't keep his views separate from his news reporting when he covers the two.

    Let's reverse this: Imagine a "news anchor" who says that the Democrats are communists and are domestic terrorists.

    Who believes that the media critics and news elites would accept THAT person covering the Democratic Party?

    If you do, contact me and I can sell you some great Enron stock.

    No,...the Bush Administration is only responsible for the deaths of around 100,000 many of them innocent men women and children, butchering the Constitution and creating more terrorists in the world.

    How dare Olby have the audacity to mention it !

    Our Keith...
    Olbermann Equals O'Reilly. Huh? (40 comments )
    READ MORE: United States, Rudy Giuliani
    Another touch o' drivel from our sterling mainstream press, as noted by various commentators: Yesterday AP ran a story about Giuliani's complaint over Keith Olbermann's participation in the GOP "debate" broadcast.

    I guess since Olbermann hammered America's Mayor for going demagogic with 9/11 speeches (Giuliani, ole Mr. Police Riot Instigator, a demogogue?

    heaven forfend!), there was a question of "fairness" in some carping quarters.

    Well gee whiz. The mayor who tried to halt ads on buses from poking fun at him is now whining about some critic, is he?

    But the AP story yesterday actually describes MSNBC's use of Olbermann as the equivalent to Fox's using O'Reilly, say, in the same circumstance!

    Excuse me??

    This is the kind of fatuous mulch that passes for news analysis in the mainstream media these days.

    Pardon reprinting letters again, but here's what I wrote yesterday to the AP reporter, one David Bauder:


    Dear David Bauder,

    In your AP story today, "MSNBC'S OLBERMANN SEEKS DELICATE BALANCE," you write the following:


    Having Olbermann anchor -- as he will continue, with Matthews, for big political nights throughout the campaign -- is the MSNBC equivalent of Fox News Channel assigning the same duties to O'Reilly."


    Can you possibly be drawing an equivalence between Olbermann & O'Reilly in terms of their relationships to fact & something like truthful journalistic practice!?

    Yes, Olbermann is critical and opinionated -- but on the basis of fact, not demagogic bluster and namecalling.

    You cannot appreciate the difference? Truly, you cannot??

    I don't to go over the top here; but it is this kind of fatuous "equivalency-making" that has toppled mainstream journalism into the ditch where it now lies, honking bubbles in the mud.

    I say this as someone who worked as a reporter for several years, and has written for numerous publications, incl NY Times, LA Times, New York etc.

    I say this in disgust and...more disgust.

    Thank god for the internet.
    Barry Yourgrau


    David Bauder's email address, as listed at the bottom of the article on Yahoo News, is dbauder@ap.org. Perhaps you'd care to write him yourself. Please do, of course, keep it civil.. (Don't go O'Reilly on him)

    Another discredited Bushie !

    World Bank Panel Finds Wolfowitz at Fault; Aide Resigns

    By STEVEN R. WEISMAN
    Published: May 7, 2007

    WASHINGTON, May 7 — A committee of World Bank directors has formally notified Paul D. Wolfowitz that they found him to be guilty of a conflict of interest in arranging for a pay raise and promotion for Shaha Ali Riza, his companion, in 2005. The findings stepped up the pressure on Mr. Wolfowitz to resign.

    The contents of the panel’s findings were not made public. People who are familiar with the panel’s report said that it reviewed extensive documents and testimony before concluding that Mr. Wolfowitz breached his obligations in arranging for Ms. Riza’s reassignment from the bank to the State Department.

    The worst administration in US history !:

    WASHINGTON — Top members of President Bush's national security team are leaving in one of the earliest waves of departures from a second-term administration _ nearly two years before Bush's term ends.

    As rancor in the nation rises over handling of the war in Iraq, at least 20 senior aides have either retired or resigned from important posts at the White House, Pentagon and State Department in the past six months.

    Some have left for lucrative positions in the private sector. Some have gone to academic or charitable institutions. The latest was Deputy National Security Adviser J.D. Crouch, who spoke favorably of Bush's policies as he announced he was leaving last week.

    Turnover is normal as an administration nears its end, but "this is a high number," said Paul Light, a professor of public service at New York University and an expert on government.

    "You would expect to see vacancies arise as things wind down, but it's about six months early for this kind of a mass exodus," he said.

    "No,...the Bush Administration is only responsible for the deaths of around 100,000 many of them innocent men women and children, butchering the Constitution and creating more terrorists in the world."

    Cuckoo, cuckoo, cuckoo.....

    Still citing a widely discredited Lancet study? You need to visit Kos and update your talking points.

    It's no surprise you're a Olbermann apologist.

    No, George Bush's Iraq War has been a glorious success and making LESS terrorists in the world and no innocents are being killed and he has solidly upheld the Constitution with everything he has done as president !

    Who's the cuckoo?
    The facts,75% of the American people or you ?

    "No, George Bush's Iraq War has been a glorious success and making LESS terrorists in the world and no innocents are being killed and he has solidly upheld the Constitution with everything he has done as president !"

    This is the typical Bush hating fanatic who makes outrageous claims and then retreats when they're shown to be false.

    The 100,000 figure that you threw out is garbage. It was a report by the British journal Lancet that has been shown to be completely inaccurate.

    And it's interesting that you blame Bush - AND ONLY BUSH - for these deaths. Not once did you condemn the fascist terrorists in Iraq who have killed thousands and thousands of innocent Iraqis and have lit the fire to the inter-sectarian battle that is taking place there.

    Why do you folks NEVER CRITICIZE the damned terrorists?

    It's always Bush. NEVER the terrorists.

    They blow up schools. You blame Bush. They blow up markets. You blame Bush. They blow up mosques. You blame Bush.

    It's disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself.

    Shameful. You're just shameful.


    --They blow up schools. You blame Bush. They blow up markets. You blame Bush. They blow up mosques. You blame Bush.

    It's disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself. ---

    Moron in Chief's war is a complete failure, then you Bush Supporters turn around, blame the democrats AND pretend to be Real Raygun Repuglicans.

    It's pathetic and you should be thinking of new excuses.

    LOL!

    Ohboy, these olbyloons (like Ulbermahn) will never say one negative word about the terorrists. The archives prove that point. Mike, below average patriot, nobody cares, and the many anonyloons all defend the enemy on a daily basis, simply pathetic. 100 years ago, they would have all been scalped or strung up. The former would be more fun!

    "They blow up markets. You blame Bush."
    ""It's always Bush. NEVER the terrorists."

    A few months ago, a guy went swimming at midnight in a Florida lake naked, and.....surprise.....he got his arm ripped off by an alligator and would have died if the cops had not slogged out there in the mud and rescued him.

    Now we COULD have blamed that alligator for doing what alligators do....and defended that fool's right to go swimming at night in a gator infested lake, but that would be pretty silly when you think about it, wouldn't it?

    The gators are kind of like the terrorists...gators are going to do what gators do...and terrorists are going to do what terrorists do. Blaming them isn't going to change a thing. In either case, we either kill them all or we learn how to live in the same world with them.

    It seems that killing all the terrorists just doesn't seem to be an option thats going to work for us. The more we kill, the more we create in the process.

    So please give it a rest with that ridiculous "you never blame the terrorists" argument!

    Oooooooh, Bwovine!!

    ---Mike, below average patriot, nobody cares, and the many anonyloons all defend the enemy on a daily basis, simply pathetic. 100 years ago, they would have all been scalped or strung up. The former would be more fun!---

    Nice!

    Another post showing your real fascist self.

    Bob!!!
    Please!! Please!!! Pretty Please!!!

    Make Bovine the official site monitor!!

    :D

    Hey, thanks for the link!

    gators are kind of like the terrorists...gators are going to do what gators do...and terrorists are going to do what terrorists do. Blaming them isn't going to change a thing. In either case, we either kill them all or we learn how to live in the same world with them.

    It seems that killing all the terrorists just doesn't seem to be an option thats going to work for us. The more we kill, the more we create in the process.

    So please give it a rest with that ridiculous "you never blame the terrorists" argument!

    Aww lookie, lil mickey is apologizing for the poor little terrorists, isn't he such a nice liberal? He wants to "live" with the terrorists. I say move there then, prick!

    Move where Jeff?....The Middle East?....I thought they were going to "follow us here", and that was the whole problem.

    As long as we're making animal analogies, Mike is kind of like an ostrich.

    >As long as we're making animal analogies

    A classic defense from an olbyloon, none! Shoot your mouth off some more. I have never used the "follow us here" logic. You are one of those, though, that has no recollection of 9/11, obviously. Keep kissin the terrorists ass mickey, like your hero's Maher and Ulbermahn.

    Jeff: "You are one of those, though, that has no recollection of 9/11, obviously,"

    I just knew I should never have gone blueberry picking that day!

    Mike's logic, when you have no defense, make stupid comments like above. Mike is a proven terrorist defender. A bonifide traitor like his hero's, Coward Clark and Ketchup Kerry. All 3 a desgrace to the uniform.

    I know you guys do not like Media Matters, but they did a study on "Locked Out: The Lack of Gender and Ethnic Diversity on Cable News Continues" and Countdown was the worst offender. (Having the LEAST amount of diversity in guests). But rest assured, the fan girls have sprung into action blaming Olbermann's bookers & Ms. Povich (producer?). He as the managing editor of a program that has his name is somehow powerless and thus forgiven again.

    http://mediamatters.org/items/200705070003?f=h_top

    Here is some "insight" from a top Olbyloon on the lack of diversity on Countdown:

    the roser (Loon from the KO forum)
    "A lot of it is business. Blacks don't watch cable news. When Jesse Jackson had a show on CNN his ratings were so low at one point that they were unmeasurable. Which is to say no one in the sample population watched the show."

    Jeff drones: "Mike is a proven Terrorist defender. A bonafide traitor like his hero's, Coward Clark and Ketchup Kerry, all 3 a desgrace to the uniform."

    Yea, yea, yea....At least we all wore one... honorably....during a time of war.

    I consider being called a 'traitor' by a cowardly evader of military service like you an honor.

    The fact you wore a uniform is VERY debatable. Only sacks like you, who have no defense would consider being tagged as a traitor an "honor."

    Jeff: "The fact you wore a uniform is VERY debatable."

    You sound like you're arguing with yourself over the 'fact' that I wore a uniform.

    Being tagged a 'traitor' by YOU...a coward who never even considering answering the call to serve his country yet has the nerve to call others who have 'traitors'....is an honor....and a joke....I just considered the source.

    Jeff....you do your side no good on this board. You know that, don't you?

    LMAO again!

    mickey, keep claiming you were in the service, if it makes you feel better. I will keep pointing out your lies and hypocrisies. Whatever you do, don't change!

    How about this question to you Jeff: Did you know that claiming someone is lying when you cannot provide one shread of evidence that they are lying is in fact...an outright lie?

    That makes you a pathological liar...in addition to the pathetic coward who never served his country, yet has the audacity to call others who have served honorably 'traitors'.

    You DO know that your presence on this board hurts your own cause?....you DO know that don't you, jeff.

    LOL

    Cats, I just went to your link. In the words of the leering sinister character on Rowan and Martin's Laugh In 'velleeee interesting'.
