"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The opening spiel began, of course, with the shocking, unexpected news that Democrats are against the Iraq War. Top story of the night on OlbyPlanet. Plus Gitmo, featuring a lawyer who defends terrorists. The London bomb "scare": see, it wasn't interrogation or wiretaps, it was found by happenstance. Therefore, we don't need to interrogate? OlbyLogic. Another attack on Rupert Murdoch--in which we catch Edward R Olbermann lying to his gullible viewers once again-- and why Republicans hate pets. No, we didn't make that up. It could only be concocted on a casual Friday at The Hour of Spin.
#5: Democrats are against the Iraq war. Dan Olbermann asked Alter what happens when the President tries to "demonize" Democrats. Even on a Friday, OlbyPlanet is always spinning. Lefty said "the surge isn't working", based on his on-the-ground observations and intelligence sources far beyond those of Gen Petraeus. Great thanks.
Then, "White House in Crisis" [Ding!]. The Supreme Court will hear arguments from Gitmo detainees. Terrorist defender Swift thinks it's a great idea for prisoners of war to get trials. Just like the hundreds of thousands in World War II did, right? Just like all the POWs we captured in VietNam, right? Um, well, that didn't come up. No time, because it's the "White House in Crisis". Swift wants to close Gitmo too, because it's the "White House in Crisis".
#4: The so-called, reported, putative, ostensible, claimed, unproven, alleged, purported bomb plot. What are those people in London so concerned about? You call that a bomb? The most it would have been was a car fire. Only a slovenly political hack like Oralmann could twist news like this to fit his propaganda purposes. You will note that Evan Kohlmann, MSNBC's own terrorism expert, was scheduled to appear. But his appearance got cancelled. Maybe Oralmann got a look at his website and decided he was a bit too reality-based. Instead we got another installment of Lefty Olby and Crazy Larry, with the deranged, discredited Larry Johnson (Blue Blog Source: Daily Kos). As predicted, Olbermoronn deliberately refused to report the connection to Al Qaeda; instead Mr Humility painted himself and his delusional guest as the only informed commenters because all those other terrorism experts you see on tv have a "vested interest in there being terrorism". Um, Mr Kohlmann, Krazy Keith is talking about you. Only Edward R Olbermann would cancel and then insult his network's own experts because their views aren't acceptable to the blue blogs! 'Nuff said.
#3: Rupert Murdoch attack part two. KO pretended like this was his own reportage when actually he just lifted stuff from the New York Times. Of course, since it's Fox, Fat Ass has to twist, distort, and misrepresent. He can't help it. It's in his nature. So when Murdoch says Brit Hume on Special Report gives the news "absolutely straight", Olby pulls out a clip of Hume giving an opinion on something. What is Edward R Olbermann not telling us? The clip was not from Special Report, but from an entirely different program where Hume was a guest and was asked his opinion on something. Another Stinking Olbermann Lie. Will the Olbypologists defend this too?
#2: The iPhone, Britney Spears, Joel Siegel. #1: Republicans hate pets, with the uproarious Mo Rocca. In the Media Matters Minute, CNN because they're letting Glenn Beck fill in for a week (Blue Blog Source: Media Matters), and "Coultergeist" (virtually verbatim Blue Blog Source: TV Newser).
If it's Friday, it's our weekly assessment of Olbermann's masculinity. Over the past week Monkeymann has attacked Fox and right-wing pundits 18 times. His primary source (Media Matters) criticized MSNBC six times, but Olby criticisms of MSNBC totalled: zero. That makes this week's Olbermann Manhood Quotient: -36 [limp].
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name roars along at #3,583 at amazon.com, while "Culture Warrior" is #583. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome remains buried below the ranking radar at Barnes & Noble; O'Reilly's book is #1,128 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly.
