Host: Keith Olbermann
The discredited sports guy is back! He bellowed the opening spiel at maximum decibel levels: "the walls close in" on Gonzo, another uproarious "Fox Noise" reference, fraud in Iraq, yetta nother attack on Fox, the Simpsons movie... Geez, this is like deja vu all over again. It's Groundhog Day at Olbermann Watch.
#5: "Gonzo-gate". Impeachment! Lies! Resign! Perjury! Olby cites a New York Times editorial (keep that in mind!). "Fox Noise" (a knee-slapper that never gets old)! Lefty Alter was the chosen sock-puppet: "Gonzo is gone-zo". He'll be forced to resign. On-screen graphic: "The Lies That Bind". Cue Moore. On-screen graphic" Bush's Babysitter". What, are they giving "water boy" a rest? Great thanks. Oh, and Ted Stevens (R) had his house raided by the FBI. All the raids and searches and siezures of William Jefferson (D) were ignored on OlbyPlanet. Try to guess why. Update on Chief Justice Roberts.
#4: Iraq: the Politics of War. The Wolffe Man simpered that the British government really wants Hillary Clinton to be President. Maliki and Petraeus feuding. The Brookings Institution op-ed in the Times gets shot down by Wolffie as if he knew better than the two guys who just came back from there. That pleased The Great and Powerful Olb, who gave him Great Thanks.
#3: Fox "Noise" again (can't you just imagine Olbermann's giddy cackling every time he saw that line in the script? Well, somebody must find it funny.) Fox shouldn't be called news, it should be called Fox Opinion (Blue Blog Source: DailyKos). Yes, Herr Olbermahn lecturing someone else about the difference between news and opinion. The self-deluded irony could not have been thicker. Graphic: "Faux News". With genius wordplay like this, how could anyone deny that Olby is in fact the next Edward R Murrow? Oh, and don't forget "Fix Noise" is just a propaganda arm for the GOP. You know, like this. And this. Graphic: "The Fix Is In." Great thanks.
#2: Tom Snyder (he and Olby were such good friends, and, oh, Snyder admired Olby's work), Bill Walsh, Bill Robinson, Ingmar Bergman. #1: The Simpsons movie.
It's the most predictable segment of The Hour of Spin: The Media Matters Minute. "Comedian" Rush Limbaugh (Blue Blog Source: Crooks & Liars), and Brit Hume "of Fix Noise" (comedy gold that never gets old! Blue Blog Source: Crooks & Liars) for having the effrontery to utter a criticism of Democrats. By the way, Mr Hume is an "amoral, corrupt, water-carrying hack". [Olbersaurus!] Obviously, it's time for Krazy Keith to look into this.
Dogs that did not bark: The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann is notorious for cherry-picking what he reports. We have documented how he will select only the polls that support his spin, sometimes even only the portions of the polls that suit his propaganda purposes. He does the same thing with newspapers. If the New York Times runs an editorial or an op-ed that parrots Herr Olbermann's talking points, you can be sure it will be cited as Big News--or even a "tipping point"--on The Hour of Spin. Just as he will lift stories from them when they serve his agenda. Sometimes Oralmann will not only trumpet the importance of the Timesarticle, he will even interview the author to drive the point home further. But then, there are the New York Times op-eds that don't quite sit well with the exalted ruler of OlbyPlanet. Like this one, penned by two long-time critics of the Iraq war. And you will not be surprised to learn that it was not greeted with the same eager adoration as all of the above examples. In fact, Edward R Olbermahn didn't report on the substance of the piece at all. Other than a dismissive comment from The Wolffe Man, Olby handled this story by ignoring it, and simply making the author one of tonight's "worst persons"--problem solved!

Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name circles the drawn at #33,392 at amazon.com, while "Culture Warrior" is #2,060. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) The OlbyTome remains mired below the ranking radar at Barnes & Noble; O'Reilly's book is #1,404 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. On Friday, Dan Olbermoronn continued his "lock on second place" as The O'Malkin Factor crushed him once again, and poor Olby finished a miserable third in the coveted, all-important, much-beloved, critical "key demo".
