"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Something Olbermann this way comes: We got your Rudy attack, we got your Bush administration attack, we got your Fox attack!! Olbermoronn promised to detail "the full picture of just how Roger Ailes turned Fox News into an advertising agency for Giuliani". Ooooh, that oughta be good. Plus we've got a special dog that didn't bark, and don't miss it when we catch Edward R Olbermahn in a huge megadose of his own hypocrisy. It's hump day at Olbermann Watch.
#5: Yes, Herr Olbermahn's descent into lunacy is complete. The lead story on The Hour of Spin--the biggest, most important news happening all over the world--was another attack on Fox News! Of course to make this fly, Dan Olbermann had to reverse course on one Judith Regan, who has been the repeated butt of his insults and derision over the years. Now all of a sudden everything she claims is treated as gospel, because Keithy can use it to attack Rudy and, as a bonus, Fox too. Fix News! [Ding!] Fox Noise! [Ding!] Andrea Mackris! [Ding!] Joining Bathman was his faithful sidekick, Robin, aka Slippery Shuster. He talked about Bernard Kerik. Great thanks.
On to the mysterious "special relationship" between Giuliani and the eeevil Fox. Rudy-hater Barrett's book trashing Giuliani was published last year. It was even mentioned on tonight's Hour of Spin, but oddly neither Barrett nor his puppet-master disclosed the small fact that this virulently anti-Giuliani book was published by...News Corp. Yes, the same News Corp, the same "Murdoch empire" that Oralmann claims is trying suppress bad news about Rudy! No point in confusing the viewer with anything approaching facts, right Keith? Great thanks.
Oh, and what about how Krazy Keith was going to present a detailed expose of how Fox News is "an advertising agency for Giuliani"? Um, Keith lied about that. There wasn't any. It's a new arrow in Oralmann's quiver of propaganda: announce something as fact, promise the details, and then hope people remember the incendiary charge, but forget you never documented it.
#4: Huckabee rivalling Mitt in Iowa. Klueless Keith calls it a "disaster" for Rudy because he's in third there. Hey Einstein, Rudy is rooting for Huckabee to surpass Romney. He'd much rather end up going against the ill-financed Huckabee than Mitt's millions. But that's a little too deep for The Hour of Spin. Horrors! John McCain laughed when someone called Hillary a bitch and McCain "appeared to support" it because he didn't "censure" the person who said it. Sort of like Olby laughing when Alberto Gonzales was called a "houseboy" on his program and then repeating the slur. Right, Fat Ass? Poor McCain doesn't get it. He shouldn't allow anyone to call a woman a "bitch". No, they should call her a "cunt" or an "old bag" or a "slut". Those are the approved terms on OlbyPlanet. Dana Milbank, denied dramatic dungarees, listened as Herr Olbermoronn likened all this to "macaca" (but not "buckwheat"--see below). Great thanks.
OLBYPOCRISY ALERT! Monkeymann's sensitivity to using the term "bitch" to describe a woman seems to have been freshly minted just for this occasion. For example, when Michael Musto called a woman a "bitch" while talking to Olbermann on Olbermann's show, our hero and defender of the dignity of women just chuckled and read his next question. Of course this was a long time ago: last month. Olby you are such a transparent hypocrite.
#3: Blackwater "mercenaries" and the State Department. Far-right! [Ding!] Olby sites a blue blog (Talking Points Memo) as a news source, finally admitting where he gets his stories. The Wolffe Man simpered in agreement as always.
#2: Bridge players to be sanctioned for making a holding up a political sign at a bridge tournament. Of course, KO had his tinfoil hat on claiming that they were being punished not for holding up a political sign (which has never happened before in this context), but rather for holding up a sign that was against Bush. Plus O.J. #1: Britney Spears and other breaking celebrity news.
In the Media Matters Minute, Olbermoronn attacked Deroy Murdock (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters) and Brent Bozell (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters). Yep, another double-header, straight from Brock's website to Keithy's teleprompter.
Mute Mongrels: Having tarred Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, George Allen, Glenn Beck, and a host of others as "racists", Fat Ass has spiked any negative reportage on this. No surprise there; Keith Olbermann is a slovenly political hack. But here's another aspect of Keith's canines who did not bark. Have you noticed something different about The Hour of Spin lately? Something missing from the usual shtick that Oralmann has become infamous for? It struck us that one of his favorite segments has been missing in action for weeks. In fact, we found no evidence of it going back for nearly a month. Oh there was a passing reference on Oct 22, but that was a tangential diversion in a discussion on a separate topic. No, it's pretty clear that Bathtub Boy has quietly steered away from one of his signature segments: News from Iraq (almost always Bad News from Iraq). We have dozens of examples right here at Olbermann Watch: casualty reports, car bombings, sectarian violence, the famed "civil war", etc. But over the past four weeks, segments on the war and how it's going on the ground have been strangely absent. Why would that be? There are those who believe the war is going better for us lately, and with some justification. But Bathtub Boy isn't going to mention anything like that. Could this be why Merkle has turned his attention instead to S-CHIP and increasingly frenetic attacks on more successful competitors? We report, you decide.
Olbermann's book The book that bears Olbermann's name is #24,328 on amazon, while "Culture Warrior" is #3,170. (It's that 2-for-$25 sale!) Barnes & Noble has the OlbyTome down to #116,153; O'Reilly's book is #2,378 there. On the battle of the papersbacks: Amazon lists Culture Warrior at #363, while the paperback of Oralmann's book is a mighty #59,914. Chortle! Tuesday brought the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann another humiliating loss to You Know Who in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo".]
