"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Meet the new Hour of Spin--same as the old Hour of Spin. It was deja vu time as Keith Oralmann bellowed the opening spiel: Iraqi civilian deaths, John Edwards, Leahy goes after the A.G., Bush's "cruelest veto" as he "attacked the health" of children, Rush Limbaugh, Britney Spears... No, this has to be a rerun. We'll liven things up with some dogs that did not bark, and a special audio clip. Everything old is new again on hump day at Olbermann Watch.
#5: Herr Olbermann kicked things off with "breaking news" about Blackwater, accused of "murdering" 17 Iraqi civilians. Herr Olbermann went to Edwards (D), and that reminds us...
Once again Olby pummeled Edwards with probing, tough questions:
On to "Mister" Bush who, as we heard, "attacked the health" of children. And he eats babies, too. "Mister" Bush is "out of touch" because he wants aid to poor children limited to poor children.
#4: It's GonzalesGate [Ding!] redux! There's a "White House smokescreen". Dana, absent atrocious attire, tossed a little water on Keef's hopes for a big brouhaha, so Merkle called the White House terrorists, and stumbled and stammered a bit before taking refuge in the ritual Great Thanks.
Another plug (what was this, the third? the fourth? maybe the fifth?) for his Big Limbaugh Segment. Geez, Keithy. To paraphrase your pal The Boy Wonder, why this obsession over O'Reilly? When did an O'Reilly comment ever kill someone?
#3: Limbaugh "smeared" an anti-war vet as a "suicide bomber" (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's* Media Matters). A free play of a votevets.org ad. McGough, who starred in the ad, found Rush "repugnant". Olby loved that, because he supports the troops. Or does he? Set the wayback machine for Feb 10, 2007. William Arkin called US troops "mercenaries", said they get "obscene amenities" shipped to them in the war zone, despite all the "rapes and murders" that they commit. How did Edward R Olbermann express his outrage over these insults to our soldiers? Did he run segment after segment, night after night? Did he complain that Arkin had "smeared" our troops? Well, not exactly. So how did Olbermoronn react to these repellent attacks on our soldiers? He agreed with them. Keith Olbermann: hypocritical, slovenly, partisan political hack.
#2: Princess Di, Nicholas Cage, George Grizzard. #1: Britney Spears! In the Media Matters Minute, the Olbsession continued. Olby attacked Mr Bill (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's* Media Matters) and the "lunatic fringe right-wingers at the Fixed News [Ding!] whore-house". Hey Fat Ass, wait a second here. If Rush "smeared" this guy as a "suicide bomber", as you just insisted minutes ago, then didn't you just smear all the women at Fox as prostitutes? Also attacked: Jonah Goldberg (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's* Media Matters). Hey a reference to "Fixed Noise" [Ding!]. Why don't they just let David Brock do the news on MSLSD and eliminate the Olby middleman?
Dogs That Did Not Bark: Well, we could ask why crack journalist Edward R Olbermann had John Edwards in his Seat of Honor and never asked him about this. (Perhaps it's because he's never reported it in the first place. Surprise.) But let's focus on something else. Krazy Keith has repeatedly blasted US foreign policy re North Korea. It's all the fault of "Mister" Bush because he didn't talk to them. It was Rummy's fault because he benefited from a Clinton engagement policy, but then it was also "Mister" Bush's fault because he did away with that policy. (No, that doesn't make sense, but remember, it's OlbyLogic.) Things were great under Bill Jefferson Clinton, but now we're in a "deep hole". Hell, just come out and say it Merkle. Oh wait, you did, a year ago: our Korean policy is a "failure". Does it surprise anyone that after feeding his meager audience this drivel for months, he spikes this story? What else would one expect from a left wing water carrier?
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name sunk to #19,935 on amazon, while "Culture Warrior" is #1,726. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble lists the OlbyTome at #43,270; O'Reilly's book is #2,000 there, and is one of the top five books of 2006 per Publishers Weekly. On Tuesday the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann lost again to his nemesis the eeevil Mr Bill--who had his biggest audience in three months, both in total viewers and in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo". Good work, Olby! Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 2 [LOW]
