Hmmm. While MediaBistro outlet TVNewser can't stop showing the love for Olbermann, their corporate cousin, FishBowl NY isn't on the MSM KO Bandwagon. It seems that they have detected, how shall we say, a certain pattern with Mr. Olbermann and Countdown in regards to women.
There's some furor building over a graphic [above] shown on Tuesday's Countdown With Keith Olbermann â€” guest-hosted by Alison Stewart â€” which referred to embattled Louisiana Senator David Vitter's wife as a "ho" for her choice of leopard-print at her husband's press conference acknowledging his involvement in the DC Madam scandal.
They even link to a Daily Kos diary in which a writer calls Countdown's latest stunt a lowpoint in that show's history.
While there are the usual KO apologists and the "So what it's a Republican woman" posters, there are a few who were also unhappy with the characterization of Mrs. Vitter as a "ho":
Her husband chose this. I can not stomach what is being said about her.
I think it was extremely wrong to call attention to her-in light that she was the one cheated on with a hooker, by an unapologetic cheating husband standing right beside her.That was just catty of Countdown to do to Wendy Vitter.
But enough of the DailyKos crowd, back to FishBowl NY:
Considering its "Nappy 'Hos" history, MSNBC should've learned a lesson or two about off-handed, misogynistic remarks. Still, no one should be surprised â€” Olbermann and Countdown have done this kind of thing before. One example, as we reported way back in October, involved a pre-penitentiary Paris Hilton. At that time, it wasn't the "A Slut and Battery" that drew our attention â€” it was what he said:Paris Hilton claims she was punched in the face yesterday morning at a nightclub in Hollywood [pause] 'Course she's had worse things happen to her face ...And yes, that is what he meant.
Wow, someone detecting a pattern about Olbermann's double-standard towards women? Imagine that.
