    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    May 31, 2007
    MSM KO Bandwagon #330: Boston Globe

    It's been a few weeks since a mainstream media article appeared about Herr Olbermann. Hey KO--Did you forget to pay your publicist? Enter the Boston Globe to fill the KO newsvoid. This isn't a full-on profile of Olbermann, it's a Q&A session with his opinions on key questions (half of which are sports-related). But it does contain a nugget of interesting information. Guess who is the Keynote Speaker at the ACLU-Massachusetts Banquet in Boston tonight? Yes, that's right, the unbiased Keith Olbermann.

    Best president? "Lincoln. Can't argue with turning the catastrophe of civil war into the emancipation of the slaves. Although I think James Polk is terribly underrated -- took the chance on California, managed to enrage the leaders of all the political parties.''

    What????? A Republican that Olbermann actually likes? Oh, that's right, Olbermann only likes Republicans who have been dead for over a century.

    Best member of the Red Sox? "Current: Terry Francona. Sitting in the dugout with him during an exhibition game this year taught me about 25 percent more baseball than I knew, and his light touch running the club was a delight to watch."

    Wow--Olbermann actually admits he doesn't know everything about everything-that's got to be a first for him. He must have been in an unusually humble mood.

    Best of all time? Johnny Pesky. Anybody who could still be working for the same organization 43 years after losing the manager's job is doing something right. Plus 10 years ago he ended an interview with me by giving a very warm handshake, which he promptly turned into a 'soul shake.' I am still in awe.

    There goes KO again with the man-love for baseball players. He's probably still prefer a soul kiss from A-Rod though.

    Best US foreign intervention? "Afghanistan. One can argue that World War I qualifies -- only our shipping was attacked, not the nation per se. But for pure justified bona fide 'world's policeman' work, going after the Taliban was inarguable. And incomplete."

    Ah, Olbylogic. It's okay to go into Afghanistan to hunt down the Taliban and Osama Bin Laden but those terrorists in Iraq? Oh no, they should be left alone to kill us.

    Best recent movie or book? "I loved 'The Echoing Green' by Josh Prager. A microscopic workup of the 1951 National League pennant race. 'Gettysburg Gospel' by Gabor Boritt is the same kind of writing: A specific event, researched to death, so detailed as to transport you to the time and place. Great written history should approach time travel; these do."

    To show he's a real "intellectual", Olby has to mention books no one else has ever read or even heard of. Gee, do you think he shares his reading list with his oh-so-very-young live-in girlfriend, Katy Tur? Is she actually old enough to read yet?

    Best guess right now on the Democratic and Republican nominees in 2008? "Al Gore and Mitt Romney. I think the far right will eventually recoil from Giuliani and pick Romney because he looks like a president and sounds like a Bing Crosby record. And I think Gore can have the nomination for the asking."

    There you go. Olbermann has spoken: Al Gore will throw his hat into the ring any day now because Olbermann wants him to!

    Bonus question: Odds that Gore wins the Nobel Peace Prize? "3:1 -- and the odds are that he'll actually win it, but the odds it will go to somebody else on a recount are 3:2."

    Yeah, it's always those pesky recounts that do Democrats in isn't it Olby?

    moron paranoid BUSHWIPES!

    Here is the Boston "slide show" link of the KO questions:

    Interesting piece for your link round up:

    News, not opinion, for NBC's Williams
    Published May 31, 2007,0,504737.column?coll=chi-business-hed

    Williams said he is looking for Keith Olbermann, whose hybrid work as a newscaster-commentator has won a following on NBC cable sister MSNBC, to deliver occasional essays on "Nightly News."

    But if Williams himself has had the urge to go Full Metal Olbermann, he has resisted it on the air, saving his commentaries, such as they may be, largely for the privacy of his home.

    Another interesting take on the GORE interview & how KO "edits" news/facts:

    What I admire most about Cindy Sheehan
    by Carolyn Baker (repost)
    Wednesday May 30th, 2007 4:46 PM

    Last night I watched Keith Olbermann begin his "Countdown" show with the story of Sheehan's "quitting" the anti-war movement, even including some quotes from her, but mentioning nothing about her leaving the Democratic Party. How could he do otherwise when he devoted the next twenty minutes of the program to interviewing Al Gore and communicating unmistakably to the viewers that the former Vice-President is unequivocally our "savior"? What else could we expect from corporate media?

    Olby has man-crush love flowing everywhere. No wonder he invites Musto as a guest so often. They have some things in common.

    I doubt that Williams is going to let Olby wander off the reservation. BW won't risk his reputation and ratings on a stark-raving loon who is known for rambling, incoherent spitfests. He'll keep Olby on a tight leash.

    Keith's "interview" did not impress
    Was Olby wearing Monica's dress?
    Man-crush is obscene
    That spot he'll dry clean
    Is Al running? Most couldn't care less

    Wonder why you rarely , if ever, hear a republican attacking Big Oil !

    Kudos to you , John Edwards
    Posted by:anonyloon at June 1, 2007 5:36 PM

    Kudos for what? Hiding his hedge fund? ("I'm for the little guy" says Edward) Or, charging 55,000 dollars for a speech he gave about POVERTY at UC Davis. Or, for building one of the biggest houses in his state while running for president, "I'm for the little guy" says the ambulance chaser!

    Does Johnny "I'm for the little guy" Edwards get kudos for this, too?

    Remember, now, we're talking about the number 4 liberal in the U.S. Senate. "During the buildup and aftermath of the Iraq war, Edwards bought and sold stock in several defense contractors, including Lockheed Martin, United Technologies, General Electric, British Petroleum, and General Dynamics." John Edwards buying stock in big oil before and after the Iraq war. John Edwards buying stock in big defense contractors, Lockheed Martin, United Technologies, GE, and General Dynamics.

    Let's see, Edwards:

    full head of hair.


    dumber still

    I get it. Jeff's jealous.

    RK, you've obviously never seen speakers charges have you? 55,000? Thats chump change. Rudy "Totally Cool with Abortion" Giuiiani charged my school $147,000 to speak there last April.

    And Edwards is a smart investor...he couldnt single-handedly stop what was going to happen, so he bought into it and decided to make some money off the endeavor. I cant say that I endorse that kind of attitude, but last time I checked this is America, as far as corporate crimes go...That is pretty damned low key.

    Im impressed though, you actually came up with a competant argument. Its so cute to see you growing up...

    Like another certain olbyloon, you seem to miss the whole point. Rudy doesn't claim to be "for the little guy" if I remember correctly. That's the difference between the two.

    Nix number 3

    In one of Edwards' silver-tongued arguments to the jury on behalf of a girl born with cerebral palsy, he claimed he was channeling the unborn baby girl, Jennifer Campbell, who was speaking to the jurors through him:

    "She said at 3, 'I'm fine.' She said at 4, 'I'm having a little trouble, but I'm doing OK.' Five, she said, 'I'm having problems.' At 5:30, she said, 'I need out.'"

    "She speaks to you through me and I have to tell you right now -- I didn't plan to talk about this -- right now I feel her. I feel her presence. She's inside me, and she's talking to you."

    Then don't vote for him. Vote for Koko.

    Typical anonyloon, make an asinine, idiotic remark like this with no name. Want to make a bet? Hillary-self destruct mode. Barack Hussain-can't even get the black vote. Edwards/"I'm for the little guy with my hedge fund, multi million dollar house/$400 hair cuts"- not a chance in Hell.

    An Olbyloon tossed in the slammer!

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (CNN ) – Columnist and author Eric Alterman has been released after being arrested Sunday night inside the debate spin room. He was charged with criminal trespass after police say he refused repeated orders to leave.
