    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    June 8, 2007
    Countdown with Keith Olbermann - June 8, 2007


    • PRES. BUSH: Jonathan Alter, Newsweek senior editor and MSNBC political analyst; Neal Katyal, Georgetown University law professor
    • 2008 ELECTION: Chris Cillizza,
    • "THE SOPRANOS": Alan Sepinwall, Newark Star-Ledger television critic

    Once again Keith is 4th (dead last) in the demo.

    Cable News Ratings - June 7, 2007
    8PM - P2+ (25-54)

    1st Place) The O'Reilly Factor - 462,000

    2nd Place) Nancy Grace - 256,000

    3rd Place) Paula Zahn - 235,000

    4th Place) Countdown w/ Olbermann - 171,000


    The last opening spiel of the week: Paris Hilton leads the rundown, portrayed in puppet theater. Plus the g-8 is "sick of President Bush", what was he drinking, the Pentagon wants a "do-over" (translation: they are appealing a decision), and how will the Sopranos end. Ho and hum. It's casual Friday at Olbermann Watch.

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

    #5: Gee, the lead story is Paris Hilton. "Man on Fan" Olbermann must be desperate to get those ratings out of the toilet. Even this story was totally skewed, with clips and guest (O.J. mouthpiece Robert Shapiro) all whining that the sentence was excessive. Shapiro said the sheriff did everything right, conveniently overlooking the provision in the California Penal Code that says the trial judge and only the trial judge can authorize home confinement. Shapiro even raised the red herring of prison overcrowding--a red herring because there was no overcrowding in the women's section, and anyhow Paris wasn't released due to overcrowding. Man, you can't believe The Hour of Spin even when they're talking about fluff! Great thanks. A lengthy clip show of A-Mess-NBC's Parisian coverage followed.

    #4: "Mister" Bush at the G-8; his administration is in "perpetual crisis" and makes "you sick to your stomach". Peter Pace "forced to resign", two Republicans "break ranks" with "Mister" Bush. Lefty Alter. Need we say more? Great thanks.

    #3: Military tribunal cases: F Lee Olbermann claimed when a judge makes a decision you don't like, you can either accept it or change the law. What Cracker Jack box did he get his law degree from? You can also appeal the decision, or ask the judge to reconsider. Because all this is beyond Oralmann this segment was even stupider than the usual Hour of Spin crap. Katyal, partisan Democrat and defender of terrorists and enemies of the USA, was obvious a welcome guest on OlbyPlanet. This is about "basic fairness" that the US extends to "prisoners of war". Oh? Did all those German POWs get lawyers while the war was still ongoing? Did we hold 1,000,000 trials? More habeas corpus lies. Olby compares the US to "Stalinist Russia". Yikes, what nonsense! Great thanks.

    #2: Oooh, oooh, The Sopranos is ending (Monica Novotny handled the report while a split screen showed Olby, reluctant to be spoiled, listening to an iPod). #1: Dana Milbank and Paris Hilton Puppet Theater (this being casual Friday, we opted out of sitting through this juvenalia). In the Media Matters Minute, it was the usual conservative/Fox suspects: Robert Bork (Blue Blog Source: Think Progress), someone affiliated with James Dobson (Blue Blog Source: Media Matters), and, yes, attack #195 on Bill O'Reilly (Blue Blog Source: Media Matters). Could there be anything more partisan and predictable? Yawn.

    Stories Olbermann refuses to report

    Mute mongrels: This will surprise no one, but Bathtub Boy continues his spiking on the case against William Jefferson (D). Recall how every last hiccup was featured on The Hour of Spin when it was all about Bob Ney (R), or Duke Cunningham (R)? Now the House Ethics Committee has decided to expand its investigation of Jefferson, who had his first court appearance. When any of that happens to an (R), it's all over the OlbyPlanet news. When it happens to a (D), Edward R Olbermann's coverage basically amounts to this.

    Stories Olbermann refuses to report

    And since it's Friday, it's our weekly assessment of Olbermann's masculinity. Over the past week Monkeymann has attacked Fox, CNN, and Limbaugh/right-wing pundits ten times. Though his primary source (Media Matters) criticized MSNBC six times, Olby criticisms of MSNBC totalled: zero. That makes this week's Olbermann Manhood Quotient: -20 [limp].


    Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name roars along at #3,900 at, while "Culture Warrior" is #329. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome remains sunken below the ranking radar at Barnes & Noble; O'Reilly's book is #480 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. On Thursday "Man on Fan" Olbermann further solidifed his "lock" on second place by finishing fourth in the critical, beloved, all-important, coveted "key demo". Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 6 [ELEVATED]

    Come on, Johnny, don't be too harsh on the poor baby.

    I am sure the "Olby compares the US to "Stalinist Russia"." was just to make our beloved Senator Durbin know that KO keeps him in his thoughts.


    Did Shapiro refer to Olby as an "investigative journalist"? That's proof positive that he has never watched Olby's spinfest.

    Good to see that you're back, J$! Thanks to Bob, ESchatz and others for posting show recaps and other material.

    Paris...Paris...Paris... - Olby says on the Newshole page he has to obsess on it because it is "ratings gold" - got to get out of 4th place!!!

    Line up another Murrrow award

    I wonder if Paris(ite) Hilton was a Republican, would she qualify for 'WPITW'?

    Pat Chen, you have true insight.


    Did you see Keith Olbermann(D) dancing during the Sopranos report........Can anyone say, Elaine from Seinfeld??????

    Its also funny to note that Keith Obermann's(D) book is doing so bad even though it is being sold for $3.59 at Amazon. They can't even give that piece of crap away!

    >As you have experienced yourself, I have a unique ability to alter the thought patterns of people through my writing. You have become obsessed with Olbermann solely through the power of my words. You of all people should be able to understand the power my words have over the weak-minded - like you, like Keith.

    And then some...

    Holy crap!

    KO's show isn't spin, it's straight-up propaganda.

    After his MSNBC gig, he'll have offers from Hugo Chavez and Vladimir Putin. But he'll have to tone down his anti-US bias, because they will want to appear respectable.

    Olby's "book" can't be given away
    Three-fifty nine is too much to pay
    Keith has a big mouth
    Countdown's headed south
    Fourth place "lock" did I hear him say?

    Olby may think he's Edward R. Murrow
    But no matter how much his brow is furrowed
    Bush bad, Keith's mad
    Who likes that cad?
    Day after day his ratings do burrow

    Ok, where to start on tonight's journalistic masterpiece, Countdown.

    I guess with story #1....Paris......

    Fox News did hours this morning (as did CNN and MSNBC) of "Here's the outside of the Hilton mansion, we're waiting for the sheriff to show up and take her to court, where the judge will tell her 'You get your ass to jail' (to quote Eric Cartman)." How could KO do anything but how wrongly Paris has been treated? A law and order judge who wants his court orders to be upheld? Must be evil in Olbyland since FNS said the same.

    Anyone else read the O'Reilly link and go "Huh?" WTF is bad about what he said....if anyone would have recognized a leading question, posed to illicit a response from the interviewee, it should be KO. Of course, since it was on MMA, KO couldn't go ignore it.....if he loses those 180-some odd thousand that still find him relevant (in the coveted P2+), what does he have?

    Paris Hilton may be ratings gold for many television programs but not for Keith who remains mired in DEAD LAST in the cable ratings behind O'Reilly, Zahn and Grace in the all-seeing, all-knowing DEMO! I've added the latest ratings (Thurs.) above.

    Apparently Olbermann was whining on his radio show yesterday how his "producers" were "forcing him" to cover the Paris "crap". But doesn't Olbermann brag to ever MSM interviewer that he's the managing editor and in control of the content of his show? Yet another Olby lie exposed. If he was opposed to "tabloid junk" as he claimed, his program wouldn't regularly feature a tabloid section or cover celeb gossip at all. And the liberals swallow this lie, hook, line, and sinker. They even fret over how he's being "forced" to do this by his evil producers and worry how "tormented" he must be by having to cover it. Yet he seems to cover these stories on air with what seems to be unadultured glee. These Olbyloons will believe anything that Olbermann says, without question because their critical thinking skills seem to be slim and none.

    Brandon wrote: "But doesn't Olbermann brag to ever MSM interviewer that he's the managing editor and in control of the content of his show? Yet another Olby lie exposed."

    "I answer to no one" - Keith Olbermann

    Face it, Brandon, he's lazy and he can run Paris crap from NBC and not have to do much with it. More time to email the young ladies while the tape rolls.

    He's said forever that he's the managing editor of the show but yet when his new contract was announced his title of managing editor was included as if this was something new. So was he lying before the new contract? Hmmm....

    Olbermann even lied to a reporter about having a kid sister--he claimed he didn't. He lies about things both small and large. And yet these loons insist he's some sort of "truth teller". He wouldn't know truth or unbiased reporting if it hit upside the head with a 2 x 4.

    Olby claims big gains in the rating
    Fourth place is no gain simply stating
    Again Keith will fail
    His viewers will bail
    Like a pissant he's irritating

    I just LOVE these clever and hilarious limericks! You people are SOOOOOOO funny!!

    Katy Turic!! HA!! LOL!!! LOL!!!!
    Not e cummings!! HILARIOUS!!!

    Its amazing none of you are writing this type of comedy professionally.
    Although its not really too surprising if you think about it. Hollywood is so liberal that no really funny writers or comedians from the right make it big. What a shame. The world is being deprived of these hearty belly-laughs.

    We all know that the funniest people are republicans. This is proof.

    I hope you don't mind if I swipe some of this prose to tell my church group. They are also some really funny people who would get a real kick out of this comedic gold.

    For some people who claim KO is irrelevant you all spend an awful lot of time commenting on his show.

    What "people" claimed KO is "irrelevant"?

    Unhinged over Bush is Krazy Keith's claim to fame
    But Olby's biggest supporters here all have NO NAME
    Olby's ranting makes them ecstatic
    Not that Fat Ass is charismatic
    But calling oneself "" is incredibly lame

    I defend President W on the POTUS watch site
    If you think that is here then you're not very bright
    We come here to trash Keith
    You are welcome to give relief
    But you change the subject night after night
