    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    December 31, 2007
    Keith Olbermann's Top Ten Lies of 2007

    It's time for our annual list of the worst, most egregious, most outrageous lies from the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann. It's the toughest job of the year: narrowing the list down to just ten. There is so much to choose from! Be that as it may, the staff of Olbermann Watch has caucused and the votes have been cast. Here are Keith Olbermann's Top Ten Lies of 2007:

    Bathtub Boy

    #10 - Keith Olbermann just can't help itself when it comes to Fox News. It's Extreme Olby: Envy Edition as hardly a day goes by without some attack on a news channel that is actually successful. The usual tactic is to claim something on Fox was untrue or a lie, when it wasn't. Or another favorite: make a sweeping claim that you know is untrue, because it appeals to your blue blog base. But the #10 winner uses a more blatant technique: just make up something about Fox, broadcast it as if it were the truth, and never correct the record.

    #9 - Olbermahn's diseased loathing for anyone to the right of Fidel Castro--like his hatred of Fox--regularly sends KO into fits of fantasy, where facts and truth are dispensible annoyances. So he'll, say, invent totally fictitious statistics to slander the American Enterprise Institute. Just as he will misstate a whole fistful of facts when it suits his purposes. This syndrome also explains the lunatic statement that comes in at #9 in the countdown: "Mister" Bush is the first President ever to fire US attorneys.

    #8 - When Monkeymann gets worked up about something, the truth just isn't good enough. It's much more effective when Olby himself can create a phony quote and use that to make his dishonest points. You know, like when he spent an entire segment berating Rudy for something he never said? In our #8 entry, note how Herr Olbermann pulls that same trick: to "prove" a point he cites a Patrick Fitzgerald statement that turns out to be, well, imaginary.

    Bathtub Boy

    #7 - You know that since we are on the threshhold of O'Reilly attack #400, there had to be some doozies in 2007. There are too many Olbermann Lies about Bill O'Reilly to detail without running out of space. We've selected this and this as our representative examples for #7.

    #6 - Republicans beware. Edward R Olbermann will cover up for Hillary and spike stories that paint her in a bad light. But if you have an (R) after your name the Hsu is on the other foot. Bathtub Boy will run endless scandal stories, and if the blue blogs don't give him enough ammunition, then he can cook up Another Olbermann Lie or two. Governor Gibbons (R) learned how truthful Olby's reports are: not very. So it is that lie #6 in our countdown finds Mr Merkle berating Mitt Romney for something that--all together now--Romney never said! Yes, another phony, doctored quote from Olbermoronn.

    #5 - As quickly as Herr Olbermann will rush to attack other broadcasters, he is oh-so-careful not to upset his corporate masters at A-Mess-NBC. He'll broadcast flat-out fabrications, like claiming Rudy Giuliani's Presidential campaign is being run by--get ready for this--Fox's Roger Ailes. He'll even lie about the contents of a competitor's blog. But our #5 entry shows Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann at his most desperate. So eager was he to protect a possible NBC hire (Rosie O'Donnell) he doctored her words (sound familiar?) to claim she never compared US troops to terrorists. Then he blamed "Fox Noise"--another lie to protect his own sorry butt, since the people who accused Rosie of the troops/terrorism comparison were Joe Scarborough, Chris Matthews, and Howard Fineman--not on Fox, but on MSNBC!

    Bathtub Boy

    #4 - More lies about Fox News. We could do a top ten list every month the way Oralmann spews them. Whether it's a smear of Chris Wallace, or a slander of Brit Hume, the one thing you can trust about Monkeymann's attacks is that you cannot trust Monkeymann's attacks. That's what made this #4: Keith Olbermann contructs an ostentatious salvo at Fox over a leak. And guess what? Every single statement he made about Fox News was false. Untrue. An elaborate edifice of lies.

    #3 - When Oralmann gets a bee in his bonnet, there is nothing that will stand in the way of OlbySpin. So he will pretend Richard Armitage never existed and assert that Karl Rove was an "original leaker" of Valerie Plame. To attack GWB, he'll invent a nonexistent checklist of rules for Presidential pardons. But his blatant dishonesty about waterboarding is our #3 lie. Olby's duplicity about Daniel Levin was so shamelessly barefaced that even the fawning mainstream media called him on it, something that gave John Gibson no end of pleasure.

    #2 - Did you know that Keith Olbermann doesn't indulge in personal attacks? Why no, he's above all that. Sure, tell that to Liz Claman. In #2 of our countdown, observe how Fat Ass, to fuel yet another error-ridden critique of GWB, is willing to smear two writers: ridicule their professions, lie about their success... There can be no doubt that Keith Olbermann is The Model of a Liar.

    And finally, here it is, the #1 Keith Olbermann lie of 2007. In fact it bids fair to be the greatest lie of his sorry career: "I'm not politically biased."


    Untruer words were never spoken.

    Happy New Year from Olbermann Watch!

    Well done, OlbyWatch team! Thanks for the great write-up, J$. Outstanding, as usual.

    To all OlbyWatch writers and readers: Have a safe and joyous new year!

    Olby's (possible) New Year resolutions: Write more checks to the Clintons and hand them over on-air; smear his so-called enemies (or those who are more successful); and drive away more potential viewers with lefty Speshul Komment spitfest diatribes (aka packs of lies from The Orange One).

    Great list Johnny. The clip at the end is excellent also. The arrogance of this gas bag to say that Bill O'Reilly and Couric live in a "bubble". Hello pot, my name is kettle. You could probably do a list of Olbermann's top ten lies and the top ten lies about Bill O'Reilly since that is a very large category. Anyone who now claims that Keith has never been caught in a lie is a liar themselves.

    Ha! Funny as always, J$!

    Happy New Year, Olby Watchers!

    (The best way to celebrate is to bitch-slap a libtard for America, and, in the words of Winston Churchill, "there is no one in the media more deserving of a blogospheric bitch-slap than K.O.")

    Hey "the messenger,"

    GFY!

    That was me sorry

    Republican Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld authorized the rape of children in Iraqi prisons in order to humiliate their parents into providing information about the anti-American insurgency. See excerpt of one prisoner's report here and his full report here.

    I checked the two reports. The second states nothing about rape of children (alleged translation of account of Abu Graib concerning Graner who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for his role in abusing prisoners). The first is an alleged translation of an account of a child rape.

    I am not going to bother checking every allegation. There are probably convictions that are accurately stated. What bothers me are allegations. But these folks don't want the Constitution applied to everyone.

    BUT BUT if I just say it in cyberspace, doesn't that make it true??????

    lol
    Happy New Year

    :-) You too. At least the nuts are entertainment sometimes.

    Sorry but I deleted messenger's list and several follow-ups to it. What part of no lengthy, off-topic cut-and-pastes do you people not understand?

    One more thing - You will read more of my posts on this board to counteract the right wing lunatic fringe of the Republican Party’s talking points.

    Right wing talking points are easy to recognize. When more than 2 outlets say almost the same exact thing, you realize that it is a echoed lie.

    That's very good news, indeed.

    We have reached a point at OW that we can say:

    Many of the flame-throwing RW'ers have dropped out. Neither they nor their ideas could withstand critical analysis, and, perhaps, they were so thin-skinned they could not stand the constructive criticism.

    Posted by: A N O N Y M O U S at December 31, 2007 10:21 AM


    > Is it any surprise that Mrs. Philby would be overjoyed that a piece of trash like 'messenger' will be making more posts here?

    "mike,' what ever you do, DO NOT call messenger a troll, keep your reputation in tact!

    Usual great job J$.

    I'll forward this to Olbermann and his producers at "Countdown". I'm sure they'll make corrections - like they always do - for all these errors ASAP.

    And then we'll all live happily ever after.

    :-) You too. At least the nuts are entertainment sometimes.

    Where's patsy when you need him??????


    I'll make my editorial comments to this post off-line tonight.

    Happy New Year, Olby Watchers.

    • Republican Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld authorized the rape of children in Iraqi prisons in order to humiliate their parents into providing information about the anti-American insurgency.

    Rumsfeld is a fucking asshole. He is one of the corrupt douchebag in government.

    Ok you lost me believing that one Trent. youre just a delusion asswipe again

    What can I say? "ça y est c'est reparti je me divise en deux"

    Sorry, but my disdain for Rumsfeld matches few others.

    Thats fine, the man has his faults. And the french just reinforces my original vision of you with a gray turtleneck sucking coffee and chainsmoking cigarettes in a corner cafe talking about revolution

    A) They aren't faults, more like intentional corruption, cronyism, and greed at its worst.

    -and-

    B) I hate turtlenecks.

    "Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld authorized the rape of children in Iraqi prisons in order to humiliate their parents into provi"

    Right. And Keith Olbermann is a real news anchor.

    True that.

    Many of the flame-throwing RW'ers have dropped out. Neither they nor their ideas could withstand critical analysis, and, perhaps, they were so thin-skinned they could not stand the constructive criticism.

    No, sorry the "flame-throwing RW'ers" have lives and jobs so the don't respond to every lunatic fringe statement made by the magic card crowd who must post here every 5 min to defend the honor of head zombie Keith Olbermann. When your life depends on the sucess of the modern day Joseph Goebbels of our time, you have no life. Donald Rumsfeld is a nation treasure.

    -Donald Rumsfeld five hours after Flight 77 crashed into the pentegon, "judge whether good enough to hit SH at the same time, not only UBL [for Saddam Hussein and Usama bin Laden]" and "go massive... sweep it all up, things related and not."

    -In 2006 Rumsfeld said, "Keep elevating the threat".... "Talk about Somalia, the Philippines etc. Make the American people realise they are surrounded in the world by violent extremists" and, "Sacrifice = Victory", a little 1984ish wouldn't you say?

    -in the 1980's Rumsfeld was friendly to Saddam Hussein in hopes of convincing an idea of an Iraqi oil pipline to Israel. And even presented Saddam with a special gift from Ronald Reagan; golden spurs.


    - Rumsfeld approved of a "roadmap" on war propaganda that pardoned any PSYOP that happened to have leaked to the American public as long as it wasn't intentional.

    -Rumsfeld used a machine to sign letters of condolence to families who had lost members in Iraq.

    and this doesn't even cover his corporate cronyism

    Yet, It's Olbermann who IS the one considered anti-American.

    "I'm not politically biased."

    Krazy Keith


    How does a 'man' show his face on tv 2 to 3 times a week (flake) knowing those words came out of his face? To think there are people that take his words as gospel. The proof is all over this blog, sadly. I won't name any names since they could change at any minute. I used to wonder why they change their names so frequently. I've posed the question to the 'people' that do it and got nothing. The only explanation that makes any sense is shame.

    The name police is coming for all of us.

    "And Keith Olbermann is a real news anchor."
    -Anon 8:41

    How can he be? He's never anchored a show at Fox News.

    "No, sorry the "flame-throwing RW'ers" have lives and jobs..."
    -Factor

    So do I. In fact, thanks to the all-Republican D.C. confab, I've got three; whereas I could pay the bills and invest a little with just the one I had in 2000.

    "The proof is all over this blog, sadly."

    The only proof you seem to know, RK, is the one that comes from a bottle. You may want to consider avoiding confusion between your sense of vision and delusional hallucination. Drink on!

    Troll.

    Boogerface.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I hadn't realized one could earn a living playing with yourself and posing as a perpetual victim of democracy, but it's good work if you can get it I guess. The Goebbel analogy is priceless, unless of course you're serious --then it's just pathetic. And yeah, Rumsfeld is a nation(al) treasure... for the Saudis. He's an embarrassment as an American.

    Yet, It's Olbermann who IS the one considered anti-American.

    Finally, something coherent.

    "Finally, something coherent."

    ... to American neo-fascists. That ain't saying much really, since single-cell organisms tend to react violently to the light.

    You must consider asking yourself why you are such a frequent contributor to this site. It surely isn't because you're such an ardent proponent of the First Amendment, RK. You don't seem very well versed on the U.S. Constitution, American history, or the Magna Carta for that matter based on what you consider insightful commentary here.

    Awesome work putting all this together, J$. Just felt that needed to be said.

    Happy New Year, all.

    Great job, Johnny!

    Thanks so much for all you do here!

    I know your piece is about Olbermann fabrications, but I wondered if you noticed one more bit of Olbermann hypocrisy as revealed in his interview with Bill Moyers.

    After Moyers asked him about being as one-sided or worst than those he criticised, Olbermann responded that this (the Bush presidency, I suppose) was an "emergency situation" which validated such tactics.

    Evidently, Olbermann is currently operating under his own imposition of martial law... :D

    I'm sure he justifies all "untruths" in such a fashion as well.

    LOL. Gen. Olby Musharraf declares a national emergency and suspends all civil rights to discourse in order to address the urgent situation. What a loon.

    I don't know - maybe he's more like Olby Chavez and has delusions that he takes over the fair and balanced media outlet(only 1) that doesn't comply with or broadcast his one-sided socialist spin.

    Idiot messenger box! It would take 15 plus years for Oreilley's ratings to fall to the level of Olbermann's pathetic ratings. Continue to drink the koolaid asshole. Your american hating rhetoric is tired and why the republicans will win in 2008.

    Great recap Johnny... and leave the loon's cut-n-paste...

    We've seen that exact non-sensical post dozens of times before. I suspect most people here just scan over windy propoganda designed to change the subject.

    Happy New Years all!

    messenger - so you justify Olby's hypocisy by presenting that of others? Where's the logic?

    I don't care what "Orally" does or what those on your list of Republicans do. And I'm not a neocon, just a disgruntled former viewer who feels foolish for falling for KO's spin for awhile, but not anymore. Try checking out Olbermann's claims instead of following blindly beause he at times says what you want to hear. You might be joining me here on the other side of the fence someday. He hurts the left by throwing away his probity.

    And again, this is Olbermann Watch, not Bush Watch or Republican Watch.

    Thanks, Cecelia, for your comment at 11:26. Well said.

    You are an idiot - messenger!
    Do you read?
    The above top ten were never recanted.
    Explain that doofus.

    Thanks for coming here and displaying how mentally challenged you loons are. Its always a treat seeing such ineptness in the first person. Too funny. Pathetically funny!

    > Every story that Olbermann presents is verifiable. When he makes a mistake, he’s the first one to admit it.

    messenger - check Olbermann's comments on Liz Claman - EASILY found to be a lie and he never recanted or apologized.

    Mybe you have an admission to make to yourself - your hero makes a lot of errors, and he's a sloppy "journalist" disregarding facts

    this site would be boring without the Olbyloons

    Happy New Year, loons - thanks for coming and keeping this the go-to site for all things Olbermann

    You keep this place alive

    Messenger, or for short, Mess: This thread is about the selection of 2007's Top 10 Olbylies. Cutting and pasting text that does not refute an Olbylie or is not relevant to the subject of Olbylies in general is off-topic. It is, however, typical libnut behavior. You cannot refute the Olbylies, so you change the subject. Clear-thinkers have zero tolerance for this type of misguided, illogical moonbat maneuver.

    Well yeah, if you ignore all the falsehoods and lies this site documents on a regular basis. You know like the top ten (and numerous runners-up) posted at the top of this page.

    And yes, messenger, your lengthy off-topic cut-and-pastes were deleted again, along with the customary penalty for repeat offenders. Why don't you open your copy of "Internets for Dummies" and learn how to post a link to something?

    "I'm not politically biased."

    Krazy Keith

    This gets more hilarious every time I see it. Thanks, J$!

    You make accusations about Keith, but you don’t back them up with facts. Where are the facts? Where are the links to your facts? I don’t want links to other opinions. I want facts about Olbermann.. I want irrefutable facts consistent to facts presented in a court of law. But I realize that the facts don’t exist because you don’t have any facts. Your site is only designed to smear Keith and nothing more.

    Accusations are not facts. They are opinions. Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and they all stink.

    One click and look what I found. I little more research in the coming days will reveal who johnny dollar is.

    Still nothing? It seems it would be readily available. Anonymous? Mike? Anyone?

    I can't find any proof that Olbermann corrects his many mistakes but I can see that the statement above, about the loons providing entertainment here, is true.

    Just look at Mess playing private eye. Maybe KO should hire Mess to help him be a journalist, digging up facts, finding the story behind the story. Oh, KO doesn't do that? He just reads information he finds at blue blogs and spouts commentary? Guess he doesnt need much help with that. Hell, he can't even leave the anchor desk, not even for sports. Look at Costas today, standing out in the snow and ice at the hockey game, even he leaves the warmth of the anchor desk.

    Mess, I anxiously await your findings in exposing Johnny and some kind of conspiracy theory about OW. But what about the guy in charge of OW? What are you going to find on him?

    Mess, you're takig a long time looking for links to his corrections?

    I know. He should team up with the poster sometimes known as 'mike.' He spent all day yesterday trying to find out who I was, which is very strange, to say the least. Disgruntled? Indeed. Anyways, he found one of my old websites that I didn't even know was still on the web! A horse I don't even own anymore! What would possess a person to do somethinglike that? Mental issues? Self esteem issues? Could a person love Olbermann that much? Manlove? A person proven to be nothing more that a partisan hack? He makes the least amount of anyone on tv, doesn't he? The nifong/olbermann lover is probably busy right now 'googling' away to find me! I would like nothing more than to see him at the end of my driveway. I'll pay for the plane ticket, lil mikey, how's that? Bring philby, too. I'm not paying for her ticket, though. Your date, you pay.

    That's because when he corrects himself, it is usually between segments. Most people usually only document The WPITW segement or his Special Comments, so I would be surprised if the messenger could find any links to his apologies.

    > One click and look what I found. I little more research in the coming days will reveal who johnny dollar is.

    Ooh, wow, very impressive.

    > Just look at Mess playing private eye. Maybe KO should hire Mess to help him be a journalist, digging up facts, finding the story behind the story.

    yeah, his private eye work is pretty much on a par with Keith's journalism. You know, of course, that J$ is a pen name. Mess is going to get to the bottom of this! But, as expected, he couldn't be looking in a wronger place. What has apparently completely gone over his head is that my real name is plastered on every page of this blog. Duh.

    yep, true Olbermann-quality "facts" and "research" from Messenger, the cut-and-paste king!

    > That's because when he corrects himself, it is usually between segments.

    You mean during the commercials, when the camera is off? That might explain it but is the lamest attempt at Olbypology I've ever heard.

    > I would be surprised if the messenger could find any links to his apologies.

    Well we know what his research skills are, but even he might stumble across the transcript archives at msnbc that have every show for the past several years--certainly every show covered in Olbermann's Top Ten Lies of 2007. So if he ever corrected any of those top ten lies that would be in the transcript. Only he didn't and it ain't.

    Unless of course we go by the Trent theory that all his corrections and apologies came during commercial breaks. Man, that's an instant Olbyloon classic!

    I honestly don't know if Olbermann apologized for the "lies" you listed above. But I have heard him several times apologize for things he got wrong. It, usually happening the next day.

    I've heard him do it a couple of times too. Usually after a day or two of pressure. But it's the exception, not the rule. Remember, we had scores and scores of documented lies from 2007 alone that we had to boil down to just ten. That's a lot of correcting/apologizing! He's never corrected, let alone apologized for, any of the dozens of lies he's used to smear O'Reilly, five of which are linked in the article above. Nor has he apologized for ANY of the top ten lies. And yes, they are lies.

    from Messenger, the cut-and-paste king!

    Thanks, Johnny! Makes sense, now.

    Although new to the blog- Trent and the messenger are still ripe with the bullshit you would find at the Olberloon fan sites. "Keith is reputable" "Keith corrects wrongs"

    Fact is, this site is laden with FORMER KeithO fans that have lost the fight defending the repulsive MSNBC anchor. They have converted to bashing Bush, Bashing Oreilley, and Bashing anti-KeithO posters.

    Stay here long enough and you will see how KeithO spins, lies, and makes stats up. And 9 out of 10 fabrications go unchallenged... thus not corrected. Thanks to OWactch for catching this propoganda puppet every night. It gets easier and easier each day to refute his bullshit. Just check the anti-american blue blogs. And JD does a great job exposing it every day.

    Sorry trent- but your favorite blogs indict our military, our government for all that is wrong in the world EVERY day. That is anti-american.

    For example:
    Global Warming is not solely the result of american commercialism.
    Terrorism is not the result of American policies.
    Just to name a few.

    Yet those bogs preach it everyday.

    Huffington Post and Daily KOs would repulse any true patriot. You probably embrace their message.

    Yes, criticizing the government is anti-American. How could have I been so stupid as to think it was our jobs as citizens!

    And, I rarely if ever go to the DailyKOS or the Huffington Post.

    Now you may go back and look for more Fox News-approved blogs.

    With all the monstrous lies Keith Goebbels has told in 07, I think it is time to change the name of his show from the hour of spin, to the hour of fiction. The only time Keith came close to apologizing was when he tried to correct a mistake that the AP had made 2 days before and corrected about Rudy. He of course blamed the AP even though he had plenty of time to get the story right. He had picked the story off one of his favorite propaganda blogs and never bothered to read the corrected AP story. See a real journalist would use a story directly from the AP, and not pull it off a partisan blog.

    The fact that he DID do a correction for that apology, after days of controversy, pressure, and criticismn, is why we did not make it one of our top ten lies. However, it is notable that in making the "apology", he blamed AP, he blamed the tape, he blamed everyone except The Laughing STagehand. And he told at least one new lie in the apology! Hour of Fiction is an accurate title, but I've grown too fond of Hour of Spin.

    #11: Blaming "comedian" Rush Limbaugh for coining the phrase General "BetrayUs" when, in fact, it was Keith.

    In '07 Keith told many lies
    And he had no words for the wise
    Insults and name-calling
    And Keith caterwauling
    NBC News is like a disguise

    > #11: Blaming "comedian" Rush Limbaugh for coining the phrase General "BetrayUs" when, in fact, it was Keith.

    An excellent addition. I had that on the list but somehow it got lost and didn't make the final cut. It's good to remind people where this smear actually began.

    Heh, heh, heh! .... I know I made a resolution to TRY not to respond to this annoying little troll anymore, but this one was just too good to pass up!

    You said "I spent all day yesterday"?!?!

    Wanna bet troll?....I'll bet you really believe that, don't you?

    In truth, I spent all of five minutes in finding out who you are. And the funny thing is, YOU, along with your lawyer, are the ones who made it SO easy. I even found a picture of you riding on that horse you say you no longer own.

    But don't worry Jeff. I wouldn't pay you a personal visit if you lived across the street. I'm just a big ole teddy bear.

    What's funny here is your stated personal paranoia you gave as an excuse for switching names....which was one of the silliest things I have ever read on this blog.

    You see, Nobody really cares who you are, OR where you live. But once you offered up THAT bit of utter nonsense as your reasoning for doing the EXACT SAME THING you keep obsessing about other posters doing, it became obvious once again that you were several cards short of a full deck.

    Either you are even dumber than I thought, or you should fire your "lawyer" (I suspect both).

    You remember, don't you Jeff? ... That 'lawyer' who you said advised you to switch from your 'real' name in favor of a moniker? Did this brilliant lawyer also advise you to switch to a moniker that would IMMEDIATELY identify you to anyone who bothered to make a simple search using the modern miracle of Google and are capable of adding 2 + 2?

    Now, if you had just stayed with the one name 'Jeff', do you think I could have found you in a mere five minutes? Heck, I know at least ten 'Jeffs' myself. (But All of the ones I know are a lot smarter than you though, and half of them are conservatives.)

    I also see where you got caught posting yourself as an anon earlier today.

    Yes, Jeff, you are unquestionably the biggest internet troll AND the biggest hypocrite on this entire blog, but you know what, if you'd just stop trolling my posts like a pesky housefly, .... posts that are not addressed to you anyway, .... and if you'd stop invoking my name in 1 out of every 2 posts you make, ..... you would never see me address you and your never ending nonsense again.

    Yes, criticizing the government is anti-American. How could have I been so stupid as to think it was our jobs as citizens!

    Posted by: Trent the Anarcho-Syndicalist at January 1, 2008 7:01 PM

    Criticising half the gov't? What about the other half? The dems don't deserve criticising? If they have a (d) after their name they are off limits at puffer, right?

    ". #11: Blaming "comedian" Rush Limbaugh for coining the phrase General "Betrayus" when, it fact, it was Keith."

    Fascinating!

    I could have sworn that came from a very controversial Moveon NY Times ad.

    This blog really is pathetic. You have to really pick at KO's stuff to find stuff that isn't spot on. He doesn't blatantly lie like Orally.

    It's really sad that you people have no lives and have to devote your time to finding stupid ways of attacking someone who actually gives a damn about this country. Really sad.

    Apparently 'mike' and 'philby' are waaaaay too stupid to see who the sick one is. Tracking people down on the internet that point out day after day how big of hypocrites they are, yea, that's normal! Thanks for confirming how "short of a full deck" you really are. Not that we didn't already know that, though. Like I said, you and philby are the perfect couple. Have fun w/that, sick puppy!

    I also see where you got caught posting yourself as an anon earlier today.

    sometimes known as mike

    Proof?

    One reason I enjoy J$'s annual round-up of Olbermann lies is to observe what new and unique excuses will be presented on Olbermann's behalf by his ass-kissing defenders.

    The excuse offered by Howeird at 10:50 pm is, I must admit, one I have not seen before. It goes like this-- yes, all of the lies you have reported are in fact lies by Olbermann, but they aren't REALLY BIG LIES and his main competitor tells more blatant (and unspecified) lies, so the lies that Olbermann tells really should not be taken into consideration.

    Johnny, I think KO will need a couple of more bathtub days to recover from your list of 2007 lies. nice job.

    "Are you gay" and "you are gay" are worlds apart. I wouldn't expect a desperate olbyloon to understand, though. A little touchy, eh? Usually the first sign, just an observation.

    Long before the moveon "Betray Us" advertisement, back on August 16th, the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann began his "newscast" in the usual fashion, bellowing the opening spiel. And there it was, weeks before the moveon ad, in all its glory:

    KEITH OLBERMANN, MSNBC HOST: Which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? The Petraeus report, less Petraeus, more betrayaeus (ph).

    Nice to see you can follow a link too, 11:55.

    Can you roll over on command as well?

    > Now you have NO credibility.

    Oh yeah, because you invent a "connection" with Fox, therefore all of a sudden Keith Olbermann's lies aren't lies at all. They're all true! It's always entertaining to watch Olbyloons in their natural habitat.

    When will Mike and Clucker come to the defense of their political soul mate, Olbermahn?

    Posted by: at January 2, 2008 12:11 AM


    I think they have given up. There was a point when they did try, to no avail.

    mike started out with "I don't defend Olbermahn!"

    A week later, "I was driven to defend him by you guys!"

    clucker claims to "rarely" watch (lie) and claims he (the orange faced hack) has no "political perspective." Yet, she spends every waking moment right here. Strange? Indeed.

    "I think they have given up. There was a point when they did try, to no avail"

    "Little touchy, eh? Usually the first sign, just an observation."

    Well you would know. Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    I finished TRUTH AND CONSEQUENCES last night.....I had the same reaction I had to WPITW....unimpressed.

    Nothing new here....Olbermann expresses great indignation for anyone who's rhetoric originates from as assumption of absolute certainty, yet the entire book is a compilation of themes based on his own absolute certainty.....If I did not know Olbermann, I could conclude he is being satirical.

    There is little nuance in this book. Olbermann has the same style of writing one sees with Beck and O'Reilly....Again, Olbermann takes issue with these demogogues of the right, and points out that such absolutism makes their points of view. Hello....pot/kettle stuff.

    The background information he gives to his special comments was interesting (fans would enjoy that rehash), but again, much of what he decries as crime or tragedy seems over-stated. His fear-filled, anxiety ridden tone he has had on his broadcasts (although it has been over a year since I have watched him), persists in the book, just like it did in WPITW.

    There is no optimism here. It is an attempt to frame issues in fear, life/death consequences, but the targets are undeserving It is another NYC Central Park South elitist pundit writing about the fall of liberty and freedom in The United States when nothing like it has happened. Ivory tower babble.

    The fact a book like this and a show like his even exists and gets attention deflates his (and the radical left's) argument.

    People have been very critical of Bush et al, even hateful, since 2001....and no one has been stopped in expressing their opinion. History will look back at demogogues like Olbermann and not put them in the same catagory of true journalists like Murrow...Instead he will be another example of one misguided by political ideology and the personal ego-driven need to be heard.

    Now it is on to something more substantive....Eric Clapton's autobio.

    this is ridiculous. there are no facts supporting your "top 10" items. just links to other olbermann watch posts where you huff and puff subjectively.

    nice try. FAIL.

    Wow cee, impressed that you would subject yourself to such literary dribble. But apparently you are more open minded than the loons give you credit for. Hopefully you borrowed the book so he doesn't have that one extra B&N count to brag about when he his annual book boast.

    How funny is it that a neoskeptic is incapable of reading links that point out (in a second grade reading level no less) how the KeithO lies are derived? Maybe we could show him with crayons and stick drawings.

    It just shows the pathetic mindset of the loon. Shallow at best.

    Hey benson....My town library actually does a great job in getting new books up on the shelf, even the day they are released....The Librarian is a political junkie so she is good in getting such stuff like T&C....No...I would not buy it.....Placing the book in the best seller list would not be a good thing....

    I was able to get the book Saturday morning...they had two copies....no one had yet taken either out (I believe it cam out on Weds, 12/26).....

    Olbermann intrigues me because of his self placement as today's Murrow. I have great interest in the era of McCarthy and feel the sobering issues and realities of that day were demagogued by leftist ideologues as well to cover their errors in judgement....but the academia and conventional wisdom of today's world seems reluctant to look at that era objectively either.

    Objectivity is wanting in our country and the serious issues of security, democracy and economic security are in jeopardy all over selfish interests. Olbermann is a very sad sign of this trend. He is an employee of a multi-national corporation who benefits for the very system he decries....he has no credibility as a journalist or pundit....So reading or listening to his latest propaganda upon that backdrop is very entertaining and informative.

    Bravo cee... you are a better man than me to suffer through such self-centered pontificating. Five minutes of a broadcast or a quick review of the OW writeups are ample for me.

    It must be fun reading it - and then visualizing his minions eating his analysis up. Two different worlds I am sure.

    Countdown has devolved into nothing more than Olbermanns Enemies List. It's ironic that Keith has become the Nixon of cable "news" outlets.

    Where is mental midget (WDYT) about this latest poll....he seems to like them so much.....

    Number of Republicans in U.S. Increases in December to Two-Year High

    "The gap between the parties now shows a 2.1 percentage point advantage for the Democrats. That’s the smallest advantage for the Democrats since January 2006. It represents a dramatic change from the previous five months when the gap favored Democrats by a margin between 4.5 and 4.9 percentage points each and every month.

    "A year ago at this time, the Democrats had a 6.9 percentage point advantage as they prepared to formally take control of Congress following their victories in Election 2006. It remains to be seen whether the Republican gains can last, but it is startling to note that the Democrats have lost two-thirds of the partisan advantage since taking control of Congress."

    As the democratic leadership has responded to their fringe left base and moved more left, they have failed to accomplish anything and their popularity has decreased....I wonder if the left's ruling elite is getting the message from America?

    Oh well, we shall see...Especially now that there is the moderating influence of the general election and viable presidential always need to abandon the radical poles.....thank goodness!

    Objectivity is wanting in our country and the serious issues of security, democracy and economic security are in jeopardy all over selfish interests. Olbermann is a very sad sign of this trend. He is an employee of a multi-national corporation who benefits for the very system he decries....he has no credibility as a journalist or pundit....So reading or listening to his latest propaganda upon that backdrop is very entertaining and informative.

    Very good review and additional comments cee, thanks.

    Congrats to the J$ and the Olbermannwatch staff. The list of top ten Olbermann lies has made it on Newsbusters.org as a story. Newsbusters.org is read by many in the media including the Keith's hatchet men. Its not up on Hotair yet, but I am guessing it will be soon. Maybe Gibson will pull it for his radio show.
    http://newsbusters.org/blogs/lynn-davidson/2008/01/01/olbermann-watch-lists-keiths-top-ten-lies-2007

    aahhhh, the lists are starting to come in:

    * Most Valuable Television: MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann is essential viewing that provides a nightly dose of reality to a nation still kept in the dark by most media. But broadcast television remains the vast wasteland that does the most to deaden our discourse, and that is why BILL MOYERS JOURNAL remained the essential antidote to what ails the body politic. Interviews with JEREMY SCAHILL, MARTIN ESPADA, SCOTT RITTER, BARBARA EHRENREICH , LORI WALLACH AND JON STEWART – along with Olbermann and Stephen Colbert, a savior of cable – were among the highlights of 2007. He also devoted an hour to an impeachment discussion featuring Reagan administration lawyer Bruce Fein and this reporter, a commitment that other broadcast or cable program have yet to make.

    Cee: "Objectivity is wanting in our country and the very serious isssues of security, democracy and economic security are in jeapardy all over selfish interests. Olbermann is a very sad sign of this trend."

    I AGREE with that statement!

    But what I strongly disagree with you about is where we are going wrong on the very serious issues of security, democracy, and economic security.....and who the selfish interests that are threatening it are.

    Well Mike, that's ok....especially since we have been agreeing lately on the candidates....

    McCain v. Obama....

    Let's hope they both look good for November after Thursday night!

    Sadly, Olbermann only made second & first runner up on quotes of the year:

    Second runner-up: "The country cannot run the risk of what you can still do to this country in the next 500 days."
    -- MSNBC's Keith Olbermann addressing President Bush on Sept. 4.

    First runner-up: "Al-Qaida really hurt us, but not as much as Rupert Murdoch has hurt us, particularly in the case of Fox News. Fox News is worse than al-Qaida -- worse for our society. It's as dangerous as the Ku Klux Klan ever was."
    -- MSNBC's Keith Olbermann in an October Playboy magazine interview.

    Well put anon...
    Allow me o hand pick what I disagree with.
    You said, "I buy the notion that RW'ers don't watch Olbermann. As a class, in broad strokes, they tend to seek only affirmation of their views, and Olbermann certainly does not provide that."

    Conservatives would watch if he wasn't hypocritcal, a liar, and a blatent left-wing water carrier. Blatant! Olbermann could give a justifiable liberal counterpoint if he didn't resort to distortion and lies nightly. I watched KeithO a few years ago. But on consecutive nights he spewed stories that I found 'hard-to-believe.' These stories that made me question my conservative roots.

    So I investigated, and found they were biased distortions of actual events. Lies. He spun an innocent event into a republican scandal of biblical proportions. Why is this necessary? Report and decry actual scandals. There are plenty. Lies ruin, and I mean destroy, a newsmans credibility. One lie has ruined other journalists. He has managed to survive fabricating stories daily. How?

    Thankfully, investigating Countdown's spin brought me on this website. They watch the scumbag nightly. His show is not worthy of viewers from the right. His show spews more hate and bias than thought provoking analysis... so why watch?

    Another shout-out from one of Olbermann's favorite blogs: (Warning: this is a gay issue website, do not go if you are easily offended).

    http://www.queerty.com/keith-olbermann-sums-up-2007-20071221/

    McCain actually is surging (the surge is working). He just took the lead in the national polls. Its close but its new territory for him. I agree- keep it going.

    The blog from Bill Moyers interview of Olbermann, the comments are priceless---although they do allow criticism. One pointed out that Olbermann lied in the interview with Bill Moyers, nice.

    http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/blog/2007/12/can_only_screechers_compete_in_1.html

    In fact, the few regular viewers I know are distinctly apolitical. More likely to know what Brittney said to the clerk at Carl's Jr. that what Edwards said at the NAACP convention.

    Your cohort, sometimes known as 'mike' has admitted to watching the orange faced liar for the very reason you stated us "RW'ers" don't watch him. To seek affirmation of his off the chart far left views. Which is why you watch him also, right? Oh, that's right, you don't watch him. You just live on a blog that criticises him. That's normal.

    agreed cee, this would really be a "win" "win" situation. Two of the best politics has to offer.

    As far as I can determine, you people just can't stand someone with the guts to stand up and tell the truth (it does hurt sometimes!). Maybe it's because you're intellectually chanllenged and are not aware of the ramifications of the national debt, win-only-for-the-multinationals free trade agreements, the Iraq debacle, the treasonous trampling of the Constitution, and certain people's business dealings with the Bin-Laden family, oil companies, dictatorships and other so-called allies.

    Great list Mr. Dollar

    I love the fact that this blog is really the purest form of the internet...no long explanations of the obvious, just links to the truth. Great Thanks.

    BTW: Can you put all the Katy Turic limericks in one place with an easy to access button/link in the margin. Those are pure fun, pure poetry and get even better with numerous readings. Thanks again.

    ...Maybe it's because you're intellectually chanllenged...

    pot meet kettle

    A N O N Y M O U S, I find much to disagree with you about in regards to your 11:58 analysis of a news show that you personally admit to almost never watching.

    I have one piece of advice; DON'T make the mistake of allowing what is written on this web site to shape your views about Countdown. That would be every bit as aggregious as allowing Rush, Hannity, Savage, or even Olbermann to shape your worldview.

    Yes, Countdown is a flawed News show. There is no question about that. But so is every nighttime program on Fox and most on CNN.

    I think you are vastly overrating the fluff and 'personal hit list' portions of the show, which tend to occur mostly in the last 15 minutes, and I, for one tend to tune that part of the show out when I watch it.

    The fallacy on daily display here is the notion that those who follow Olbermann only get their information from him, .... and those like him, which is anything but the truth in my opinion.

    Countdown DOES provide as much, if not more depth to many issues than can be found anywhere else on cable, .... albeit it does have a decided leftward slant .... and I strongly believe THAT is the thing that offends most of the KO haters on this site. Reading this site over a period of time only strengthens that notion.

    Countdown's biggest flaw is also it's biggests strength. How's that for irony? The fact that no left/right debate occurs on Countdown is bad in the sense of not providing balance, .... but is also good in the sense of allowing more in depth airing of the views and opinions that are presented. The absence of the sometimes tiring and infuriating screamfests that often do nothing but derail the discussions at hand and often prevent them from fully airing the views that the pundits involved are trying to present, .... is not entirely a negative thing.

    If I had a dollar for every time a guest on a 'debate' show began to air a view that I especially wanted to hear more depth about, .... only to have them cut off by another guest OR the host - and the original thought that they were trying to present becomes lost forever, .... I'd be rich. These things all happen regularly on O'Reilly, H&C, Hardball, Abrams, and many others.

    So please, DON'T make the mistake of allowing THIS web site to shape your views on Keith Olbermann, .... or his program.

    Tim....I am fully aware of those challenges you mention but disagree with the fear response and blame game for events otherwise expected or unavoidable.

    This great country of ours has faced similar if not worse challenges previously and none were solved by fear provoking demogogues or liars....Keith Olbermann fits both descriptions.

    The challenges facing this country needed two things....leadership and the people to do the hard work required to solve the problem.

    Calling on leadership change or accusing people of crimes is a great tradition, but not applicable here....you may disagree with me....that is our right as free thinkers....however, the solutions to the problems you mention are beyond what Olbermann or his ilk have given the country and I am not impressed with his sports mindset of being a Monday morning quarterback with no coaching skills.

    Posted by: Tim at January 2, 2008 12:39 PM


    Would that be like NAFTA that Bill Clinton signed? Keith donated to Bill Clinton and is campaigning for Hillary Clinton.
    Oh, and is a multinational like GE? You know the company the Keith works for, the company that makes fighter jet engines.

    "other so-called allies."
    Posted by: Tim at January 2, 2008 12:39 PM

    Others like China who donates money to Bill and Hillary Clinton's campaigns while Clinton gives them missile technology so they can shoot our defense satellites out of space?

    Mr. blank-FLUCKER (cue OLD SPICE jingle), otherwise calling himself today....A N O N Y M O U S....has spoken from on high.....

    Olbermann Watch only taunts......

    like a miniature car filled with clowns....or even better......

    a cave-dwelling ancestor of his clan in northern Europe (Neanderthal)......

    Oh well, Mr. blank-FLUCKER (cue OLD SPICE jingle), the site's leftist elitist, continues anew in 2008 continuing his attempt at a board face lift....a change to try to show us all how reasonable, advanced and more intelligent is his above all the rabble here.....

    Just overlook his previous less cogent and intelligable posts that show his "Mr. Hyde" who is just under the surface....that persona really comes out when his wife, Ms. blank-FLUCKER (cue 'Cause I'm a Woman, W-O-M-A-N) allows him access to her testicle lock box....

    Give it time......

    It's been 3 days now, no list of Obama's accomplishments. Anyone?

    RK, the only democratic nominee for president that has a good deep resume that applies to the executive position is Richardson....

    The rest are legislators with little executive experience.....lawyers previously, not great executives historically....

    The republican field has a nicer composition regarding achievements....Rudy has an excellent resume, especially with NYC crime stats....his executive experience is not in question....there have been atteptes to erode his reord but time will show it really is not an effective tact. Romney....same....a good executive resume in Mass as does Huckabee in Arkansas....The only higher tier candidates that are/were legislators, McCain and Thompson, are different in previous experience with McCain having the superior and impressive biography.....

    My father used to always say beware of senators or congressmen running for President....The fact the candidate has had no executive experience is something to seriously consider....that's his beef with McCain and Thompson, although their social stands, like on abortion and gay marriage, is a help when compared to Rudy....

    Obama and Clinton are not well equiped to be President....The only thing positive about Obama is his charisma and optimism....Clinton in sour, divisive, uninspiring and backwards looking....but ideologically, I cannot stomach either.

    I'll be riding my bike to work - thank you!

    I see the olbyloon formerly known as "the messenger" is too ashamed to use his most recent name, of a long list. What ever you do, 'mike,' DO NOT call him a troll.

    you mean pathetic- not prophetic.

    Tim is a loser olbermanloon!

    Sorry- but I believe in the market correcting things. Europe has paid almost 4 bucks a gallon for years- thus the smaller efficient cars.

    The glut of SUVs in america 5 years ago was shameful and now people can't get rid of the gas hogs fast enough. My winter car is a hog, but my summer car runs on fumes. The V6 winter car will be gone by March, and then I will get smarter and buy hybrids only.

    Its called reacting to the market. Thats how it works. Sadly, the people from loonville would rather blame the government (Bush) and expect them to control the market to suit their lifestyles.

    Countdown DOES provide as much, if not more depth to many issues than can be found anywhere else on cable, .... albeit it does have a decided leftward slant .... and I strongly believe THAT is the thing that offends most of the KO haters on this site.

    Posted by: Mike at January 2, 2008 12:49 PM

    Yes Mike, Olbermann provides "depth" on issues in the same way that Kruschev and Chavez have provided "depth" on issues with their propangda organs disseminating "news" for the fine citizens of the former Soviet Unuion and current day Venezuela, respectively.

    See, without voices to challenge the views of the mentally ill host of Meltdown, he simply spews lies and smears by the bunches as documented by Johnny Dollar's 2007 list (which , for some reason, Mike did not address or challenge at all). My bet is that if Olbermann ever were to allow opposing views on his program, that annual list of lies would be a lot shorter. Why? Because, when you know your viewpoint is going to be challenged, you know that the person debating you is going to make you acountable.

    But Olbermann, knowing that the guests on his show will do nothing more than provide an echo chamber for his leftist views, carelessly riffs through more left wing blue blog talking points without reagrd for research or fact checking. There's no need since he will never be held accountable.

    If this is a facet of his show you consider to be a "strength" (no dissenting opinion), I can see why your thinking is muddled on everthing else you write about here.

    Cee: "My father used to say beware of Senators and Congressman running for president....the fact the candidate has no executive experience is something to seriously consider....thats his beef with McCain and Thompson."

    And respectfully, your father is wrong!....Like so many others out there are also wrong about this. I for one, believe serving in Congress gives one a much more well rounded and balanced perspective concerning government, just as having personally served in the military gives one a much more well rounded perspective on the risks and limitations of using that entity as well.

    I believe our last elected President from Congress was JFK. And I believe our last un-elected President taken from Congress was Ford.

    Both did admirable jobs during trying times.

    On the other hand, we have the former governors including...Carter...Clinton...& GWB, ALL of whom a considerable portion of the population feel were very bad and very controversial presidents.....for very substantial reasons.

    It's clear to me we have to shake this "executive experience" thing.

    OK Jibber Jabber, or 'he who is afraid to post a real name', tell me why it is always all or nothing with you people?

    Water carrier... you pathetic economic ignoramus.

    I am curious your knowledge of another country's sound energy policy. Like Venezuala's? Enlighten me.

    The energy crisis is global, not contrained by the borders that Bush rules. But like Olbermann, you blame all economic, climatic, and geographical disasters on Bush.

    Go kick your dog loser for the rest of the afternoon you miserable punk. Your new KeithO talking points are only five and half hours away.

    Cee: "But Olbermann, knowing that his guests will provide nothing more than an echo chamber for his leftist views."

    We'll just have to continue to disagree about that.

    One reletively recent example I recall well is when he had Senator Criss Dodd on for an in depth interview, not long after Dodd had engaged in a shoutfest on O'Reilly's show.

    I learned two things about Dodd with those two incounters with opposite extremes: 1) - He has integrity, and will stand up for what he believes, & 2) - He cannot be made to be an "echo chamber" for someone else's views.

    However, In the Olberman Interview, I learned a lot more about what he stood for, and more importantly...WHY he stood for it.

    Finally Cee, you want to know why I haven't challenged J$ on his "documented list"? Are you kidding me?!?!

    Mr. 'Dollar' practically spends his life parsing every word that a man who talks 1 - 3 hours a day says, .... while looking only for the controversial and the negative.

    I can guarantee you that if you were to pay me to literally spend my life finding negative things to "document" about ANYONE who does commentary 1 - 3 hours a day, I could deliver in spades.

    I can also guarantee you that if I were compensated to spend that amount of time defending this same controversial public figure, I could easily challenge each 'documented' negative with either or counterpoint...or at least a more than mitigating positive.

    Sorry to report that I just don't have the time to parse every word either Keith Olbermann OR Johnny Dollar. However, when I have looked for specific problems with J$'s "recaps" in the past, I have had NO problem in finding them.

    "Japan, Italy and Spain face fines of as much as $33 billion combined for failing to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions as promised under the Kyoto treaty."

    The US fines would be greater...

    Nuff said

    FACT: Europeans now pay $7 dollars a gallon-
    so get down on your knees and bow to Bush's energy policy.

    Sounds absurd, but to put the majority of the blame for high gas prices on Bush is just as absurd. Oil is a global market. Blame him for the debt, but gas prices is over reaching.

    Let it be known once and for all to everyone on this blog....our famous torrettes inflicted mentally challenged poster who lives to instigate, ..... who is affectionately known as "royal king", has officially abandoned his one name 'principle', as evidenced by his 3:05 PM post....Even though he has already had it explained to him in tedious detail why he totally misunderstood the context AND the meaning of that particular sentence he keeps regurgitating.

    Anon- I just passed on my dream house as it would have increased my commute four fold (still under an hour) because the gas prices would have crippled me if they went a lot higher. I planned accordingly.

    Its the same kind of personal responsibility that forced me to get a fixed mortgage even though the variable rate was 2% less.

    I respect that your personal decisions that help improve the world, I just think that everyone should make the same decisions- not have the government make them for you.

    Benson, you are correct that gas prices cannot be blamed on Bush. I have never blamed Bush for THAT.

    When I was in Germany in 1972, gas prices there were several times what it is here even way back then.

    The real culprit is US as much as anyone. The handwriting on the wall was written way back in 1972 - 1973 during the original Arab Oil embargo. It became apparent then that this commodity was not unlimited. America briefly went on an energy conservation and alternative fuel kick, but then all the energy crisis deniers and the conspiracy theorists raised their ugly heads, ...... and we forgot all about it.

    We are paying for that today.

    We've had 35 YEARS to deal with this problem. Instead we chose to stick our collective heads back in the sand and out came the SUV era and 50 mile commute era.

    You see Benson, we never seem to learn!...Whether it is the taking the correct lessons from Vietnam, of the energy problem

    My father's opinion regarding legislators comes from his experience with and opinion of LBJ....one of the worst presidents we have ever had. One may argue it was Johnson himself and his personality that lead to many of the problems he had, but the man had a difficult time in the later portion of his term leading as a chief executive....leadership qualities, inspiring people over the ability to horsetrade or twist arms or apply leverage top get things done is a stark lesson in what happened during his tenure. It was useful for some things he wanted to accomplish, but the overall failure of his presidency and his choice to abandon the country as its leader at a very bad time casts a great shadow over him.

    The same with Richard Nixon...he was a member of Congress and then a marginal VP under Eisenhower....The leadership abilities of Nixon to inspire or lead is obvious. He was a paranoid political animal that was his downfall. "Leader" is not a description I first think of when one mentions him.

    JFK was a fluke....he did have charisma and was able to inspire people but many problems of his early administration could be traced to his lack of experience as an executive.

    Reagan is a good example of someone with experience running and leading large entities and succeeding with higher office.

    FDR and Eisenhower....again good Presidents with leadership experience in different executive roles...military and state....

    Truman did well in the beginning but in his second only elected term, I would say his failures were because of his inability to lead...especially regarding the communist inflitration of the US government and the reaction (some argue over reaction) to this problem in the McCarthy era. His resume included serving as a senator.

    Ford served such a short time in such special circumstance that I would agree with you while Carter was not intellectually up to the challenges he faced.

    You know my opinion of Clinton and his priorities as a pathological narcissist took away from a very talented man. I believe George W. Bush evaluation is yet to be finished and history will be kinder to him than his contemporoary politicial enemies.

    Its impossible to argue with either of you entire points ANON and MIKE.

    Gas will continue to grow until we make major changes. And the american people are staring to squirm. Small changes are being made down (mini SUVs, Hybrids, dinosaur cars selling for way less than blue book)

    Next year i suspect people will be forced to make even more changes because gas prices will become outrageous. Our auto industry will make far more efficient cars to match the market demand. And then Al Gore will have to make a movie on health-care or something.

    And I will get spell-check so I don't post so many errors in a single submission. My bad!

    "But Olbermann, knowing that his guests will provide nothing more than an echo chamber for his leftist views."

    We'll just have to continue to disagree about that.

    Posted by: Mike at January 2, 2008 3:16 PM

    Then provide an example of a time when Olbermann allowed a guest with a dissenting viewpoint to challenge his viewpoint thus holding Olbermann's feet to the fire to be accurate in his arguments.

    As I stated earlier on this board, this is why I find JD's end of the year List of Olbermann Lies so entertaining-- the goofy defenses that are offered in a pathetic attempt to come to Olbermann's rescue.

    Earlier, one loon defended Olby by saying that Johnny's 2007 List of Olbermann Lies didn't have any REALLY BIG LIES on it and that Olbermann's main competitor told bigger more blatant lies.

    Now Mike tells us, "Well sure, Olbermann lies, but anyone else who got all the scrutiny that Olbermann gets from you guys would be found to lie just as much and I could prove that your assertions about his lying aren't really true if I just had more time and money"

    I'm not even going to supply an editorial comment to this-- it speaks for itself.

    The one guy in the MSM that gave constructive criticism of Olbermann:

    TVNewser has learned the CBS News blog PublicEye, described as a "de facto ombudsman" of CBS News, has ceased operations. CBS Interactive cut several staff members last month, including Matthew Felling who was co-editor of the site.

    A spokesperson for CBS Interactive tells TVNewser, "We weren't able to find a sustainable business model for Public Eye. We are exploring ways to maintain a similar spirit of public discourse by engaging the CBSNews.com audience and building a community around multiple voices."

    Launched July 12, 2005, PublicEye stated its "fundamental mission" was "to bring transparency to the editorial operations of CBS News."

    http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/

    One of Matthew Felling's accurate observations:

    June 5, 2007, 12:14 PM
    Olbermann Overstates?

    "...Keith Olbermann has developed a reputation – he’s earned media capital, if you will — by raising serious questions about the political climate in America. But last night, he squandered a bit of that account in a 16-minute segment in which he attempted to make the case that the JFK terror plot was little more than a cleverly-timed political ploy by the Bush administration..."

    http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2007/06/05/publiceye/entry2886646.shtml?source=search_story

    Anon @ 4:24 quotes me as having said:

    "Now Mike tells us......"Well sure, Olbermann lies, but anyone else who got all the scrutiny that Olbermann gets from you guys would be found to lie just as much and I could prove that your assertions about his lying aren't really true if I just had more time and money."

    Now anon....on one hand, you certainly SOUND much smarter than another poster on this blog who thinks it is perfectly OK to place quotation marks around something you are PARAPHRASING, .... but on the other hand, you didn't do it.

    So with a deliberate misrepresentation like THAT on your record, how can you be trusted trusted not to misrepresent or even understand the unvarnished truth when it comes to Keith Olbermann?

    Good god, Olbermann's book slipped back down to #153 in Amazon's Bestsellers...look for some book "hawking" tonight on Countdown (That's if he's decides to get his fatass in the studio).

    Benson: "Next year I suspect people will be forced to make even more changes because gas prices will become outrageous. Our auto industry will be forced to make far more efficient cars to match the market demand. Then Al Gore will be forced to make a movie on health-care or something."

    EXACTLY! We as a people are SO short sighted.

    It's not like we haven't been through it all before! ..... It's not like the handwriting hasn't been on the wall for 35 years now while most of us stuck our heads in the sand, as we snickered at all those 'liberal' activists who were screaming "Chicken Little" all the while.

    To me, the REAL question is: When is America going to WAKE UP and collectively LEARN something from it's mistakes?.....Instead of simply knee-jerk reacting to every new negative stimulus that happens to pricks our fannies?

    A little diversion from politics & Olbermann:

    Drugs steal laurels from honorable
    Steroid accusations affect runners-up for Cy Young, MVP
    Phil Rogers | On Baseball
    December 23, 2007

    "...Here's an idea for a pay-per-view event: Roger Clemens vs. a polygraph machine. And after serving the Rocket with sodium pentothal, temazepam or some other form of truth serum, please pass the glass to Greg Maddux.

    Maddux long has seemed a little bit resentful of the fawning inspired by Clemens' fastball and his legacy, but he's far too diplomatic, too old-school, to reveal his feelings publicly about Clemens' inclusion in the Mitchell report. That's a shame because it would be fun to know what he really thinks about playing second fiddle to an accused cheat these last 10 years.

    On his often-quoted blog, Curt Schilling recently suggested Clemens should be forced to return the Cy Young Awards he won in 1997, 1998, 2001 and 2004 if he can't disprove trainer Brian McNamee's assertion that he used steroids.

    Separated at Birth: Olbermann and Bhutto?

    http://www.portfolio.com/views/blogs/mixed-media/2008/01/02/separated-at-birth-olbermann-and-bhutto

    Anon @ 4:24 quotes me as having said:

    "Now Mike tells us......"Well sure, Olbermann lies, but anyone else who got all the scrutiny that Olbermann gets from you guys would be found to lie just as much and I could prove that your assertions about his lying aren't really true if I just had more time and money."

    Now anon....on one hand, you certainly SOUND much smarter than another poster on this blog who thinks it is perfectly OK to place quotation marks around something you are PARAPHRASING, .... but on the other hand, you didn't do it.

    So with a deliberate misrepresentation like THAT on your record, how can you be trusted . . .

    Posted by: Mike at January 2, 2008 4:39 PM

    All right Mike, you have set the record straight-- the quote I attributed to you was in fact me paraphrasing what you said at 3:16 pm.

    Now, does my paraphrasing accurately capture what you think about the reliability of Johnny Dollar's 2007 List of Olbermann Lies? If it does not, tell me specifically how I have misinterpreted what you said?

    Benson: "But on consecutive nights he spewed stories that I found 'hard-to-believe' . . .So I investigated, and found they were biased distortions of actual events."

    My experience also. I watched faithfully from 2003 till I started to question what he said, and I'd find his version often wasn't the version I saw when I witnessed the entire clip or segment at another site. He seems to present what will fit his agenda, or that of a niche to which he is trying to appeal.

    So with a deliberate misrepresentation like THAT on your record, how can you be trusted trusted not to misrepresent or even understand the unvarnished truth when it comes to Keith Olbermann?

    Posted by: Mike at January 2, 2008 4:39 PM


    How is that different than you trying to tell people on this board what they think, feel and said when they didn't or don't? Do you want to go down the 'record' road? "Jeff thinks this, cee thinks that, Cecelia thinks this, Johnny thinks that." Well, do ya?

    "How is that different than you trying to tell people on this board what they think."

    Thanks for showing off your legendary stupidity AGAIN Jeff!

    As for the comments on the Moyers site, some of those are posters at the fan boards so their flattering remarks come as no surprise. One even runs the biggest fan site. The best part is that some posted more than once, and used the same name.

    Sorry to report that I just don't have the time to parse every word either Keith Olbermann OR Johnny Dollar. However, when I have looked for specific problems with J$'s "recaps" in the past, I have had NO problem in finding them.

    Translation: I'll be on here all day long, but, I don't have the time to prove anyone wrong.

    Anon 5:35 PM: "All right Mike, you have set the record straight--the quote I attributed to you was in fact me paraphrasing what you said at 3:16."

    Ah yes....a little honesty. Very refreshing. Thanks for that.

    To answer your last question, your paraphrasing of my point wasn't really that bad of an interpretion, except that you did it in terms of the lowest common denominator, so as to make it sound just as silly as you could possibly make it sound, but that is to be expected from the opposition.

    That said, I'm not that much of a defender of Keith Olbermann's quirks and his obsession with other pundits. I kind of wish he would clean up his act in that regard.

    However, the overall package as it is currently presented in Countdown, is still an overall positive package, ... which is the only argument I have ever really made in favor of Countdown.

    "Translation: I'll be on here all day long, but I haven't the time to prove anyone wrong."

    But unlike YOU, I'm not on here all day long. I check in once in a while between transactions during convenient times during the day.

    For example, I was out on business for 12 hours New Years Eve, only to return and find you had been trolling and obsessing about me all day long.

    For the record, you're the ONLY one who spends every day, all day on this blog.

    BTW, Kucinich told the Iowa voters to pick Obama (if he (Kucinich) didn't get the 15 percent. Too bad Olbermann can't retract that Kucinich thank you now, perhaps he'll do it in the paperback version.

    From our friends at Wiki

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Jetta

    "Newly available on the third generation was Volkswagen's 1.9 L TDI (Turbo Direct Injection) 67 kilowatt (90 hp) diesel engine. Fuel economy was a strong point with ratings of 5.7 L/100 km (41 mpg [US]) urban cycle and 4.8 L/100 km (49 mpg [US]) extra urban. In top trim lines, the 2.8 L VR6 DOHC six-cylinder engine was available. In one car magazine's test, the 128 kilowatt (172 hp) power plant was able to accelerate the car from 0 to 97 km/h (60 mph) in 6.9 seconds.[43]"

    I also believe it said in the article that it tops out at 127 m.p.h.

    Quit bitchin' and go out and buy one Mr. I've been to Germany.

    Now let's see:

    Big three auto makers?

    Based In Detroit

    Who runs the plants?

    Unions

    Who has ruled Detroit for who knows how long?

    Democrats

    Who supports The Democratic party big time / long time?

    Unions

    Now you would figure that those great Democratic / Union minds would come up with something by now. Because they ARE for the working man you know!

    I wonder why?

    Don't bother, I already own a Toyota. But I also own a 1982 restored Cadillac that I bring out on Sundays so I can remember when a thing called PRIDE was built into car.

    And we also had pride and respect in our Unions.

    "When is America going to WAKE UP and collectively LEARN something from it's mistakes?."

    Classic lib line, it's always our fault. It's not Mikey's or Olby's. Or pick you're favorite "'liberal' activists who were screaming "Chicken Little" all the while."


    I take care of myself and those around me.


    "Now Mike tells us......"Well sure, Olbermann lies,...."

    Exact quote? I don't know nor do I care. But Mike I think this just might prove how YOU. yes YOU. Have been sucked into big media.

    When Clinton got caught in that Lewinsky lie and he HAD to admit the truth. Wasn't it CNN that started coming out with reports how it was okay to lie?

    Let's see Olby.

    Hillary (Keith's real boss)

    Bill

    Okay, I see where you're coming from.

    "However, the overall package as it is currently presented in Countdown, is still an overall positive package."

    Positive?

    Number 5 story: Bush sucks

    Number 4 story: Republicans suck

    Number 3 story: Bill O'Reilly and FNC sucks

    Number 2 story: who cares

    Worse Person: Whatever Media Matters, Truthout, etc. says sucks.

    Number 1 story: The Olbsession with Britney

    Again

    Positive?

    So in Mikey's mind, is it America's fault because we don't want to listen this night after night?

    Mike, you want me to have respect for Stupid? It's real easy.

    In 08' let me see Olby debate someone from the opposite side, JUST ONCE!

    Instead of the same old parrots!

    Ya know Mike, it seems that you don't mind hearing the same old stuff, by Olby and the parrots everynight.

    The birds out in my backyard get tired if all I do is keep feeding them the same old seed.

    Catch my drift?

    Posted by: Tim at January 2, 2008 12:39 PM

    Oh, really? How about Keith's bosses business dealings... Read Below.

    In early 2002, our team was in Saudi Arabia covering regional reaction to September 11. We spent time on the streets and found considerable sympathy for Osama bin Laden among common citizens at the same time that the Saudi government expressed frustration that Americans seemed not to consider it an ally in the war on terror. We tracked down relatives of the September 11 hijackers, some of whom were deeply shocked and upset to learn what their family members had done. We wanted to speak with members of Osama bin Laden’s family about their errant son’s mission to bring down the Saudi government and attack the infidel West. We couldn’t reach the bin Ladens using ordinary means, and the royal family claimed that it had no real clout with the multibillion­-dollar bin Laden construction giant that built mosques, roads, and other infrastructure all over the world.

    But GE had long done business with the bin Ladens. In a misguided attempt at corporate synergy, I called GE headquarters in Fairfield, CT, from my hotel room in Riyadh. I inquired at the highest level to see whether, in the interest of bringing out all aspects of an important story for the American people, GE corporate officers might try to persuade the bin Ladens to speak with Dateline while we were in the kingdom. I didn’t really know what to expect, but within a few hours I received a call in my hotel room from a senior corporate communications officer who would only read a statement over the phone. It said something to the effect that GE had an important, long-standing, and valuable business relationship with the Bin Laden Group and saw no connection between that relationship and what Dateline was trying to do in Saudi Arabia. He wished us well. We spoke with no bin Laden family member on that trip.

    I hadn't heard that Nader is supporting Edwards, wow, somewhat odd don't you think?

    Even if Edwards wins Iowa, he doesn't have much of a chance after that. But who knows.

    Gee Mike giving up already?

    Or just starting to drink a little early?

    Why someone as witty as you giving up?

    Just like when you're pal Olby ran because he didn't want to talk about Clinton/ Lewinsky?

    Or the time he ran because he didn't (or couldn't) respond to.

    Mr. Mike Savage?

    Or Mr. Neved?

    You and Olby

    Birds of a feather?

    Or the cut and run kids?

    And by the way Mike I've been gone for over a week. Somehow, I think if I go back, I think I know where you've been.

    Why an all powerful knowing person like you didn't go anywhere?

    With all the places you've said you've been?

    Come now Mike

    Have you been to all those countries just in your mind?

    Why look, Mike on the 1st. Mike on the 2nd.

    Should I keep going back?

    Unless O'Lielly is gay, I suspect his "ass" wants to remain in its virgin status.

    What position of Hillary Clinton is right of center? This should be good.

    Senator Clinton is not a liberal in any meaningful sense of the word. She is moderate, with some right-of-center tendencies.

    She is a HACK who way say anything and do anything that she believes will get her elected. She has no morals. Her guiding principal is POWER. This fits most politcians however, she is particularly adept at this talent.

    Pisses O'Lielly, the Walking Dead Woman Hater:

    No, No, phony. He prefers dead women, so I've heard.

    Invasion and Occupation of Iraq,

    I'm guessing you only view that negatively as opposed to most Iraqis.

    Anarchist, you are right. Hillary isn't a liberal. She's a full on socialist. One for you.

    The Invasion and Occupation of Iraq, to mention only one. Welfare reform, for another.

    Posted by: A N O N Y M O U S at January 2, 2008 10:50 PM

    Since when is she for the Invasion and Occupation of Iraq. Because she voted for it when it was popular? Invasion and occupation is not a right of center postion. Its only a right of center position when it can be wraped around the necks of republicans. If the war had turned out like the first Iraq war, Hillary would have claimed it was her idea. Welfare reform? She urged Bill to hold out on welfare reform. She said he could break the backs of the republicans. He folded under pressure.

    Every word was accurate,though.

    I think not. You are consistently a delusional moron

    McCool, I don't believe American foreign policy in general, launching a war, in specific, should be decided by opinion polling of a foreign, hostile nation. Frankly, 4,000 dead Americans is too high a price to pay to make some Iraqis happy. If you ever convince me that America has attained some significant foreign policy objective by the Invasion and Occupation, I might sing a different tune.

    Rarely is the reward for tough decision making evident immediately after a major event. History will be the judge. This was a war for American and whether they admit it or not, European interests. the liberating 20 million Iraqis is a humane bonus.

    That's because it is 'the messenger' among many others.....

    Vomits anonymous:

    "He's a superb actor, he's extremely intelligent, is on top of the issues as much as any citizen in this country. I've listen to him speak and was very impressed.
    Have you, or do you just read the red blog sound bites that are published ?'

    END QUOTE

    What does being a superb actor have to do with his views of the world or give him a right to shoot his mouth off. All I need to know is he calls Chavez one of the most democratic leaders in the world. Penn is a nut job. I'll give you the superb actor bit though. In colors when Duvall shove his candy ass up against the wall that was real fear that welled up in his chickne shit eyes.

    ASSHAT adds:

    "Why should anyone respect Rosie O'Donnell?
    You don't have to, and btw,has anyone ever asked you to respect her?"

    END QUOTE

    Well, when this fat fag shoots off her fat, huge, ugly whooping mouth she asks for what she recieves.

    This dude concludes in losing this round:

    "Why should anyone respect Alec Baldwin?
    Another phenomenal actor who is tremendous on 30 Rock. He's entitled to his personal political opinions just as you are, just like RK is."

    EDN QUOTE

    Oh, the great actor excuse again. I was impressed with the fit he through to his daugter on the phone call a few months ago. SHowed me a real man right there. He stood up on Letterman and said "They should stone that fat Henry Hyde to death". Well, like I tell O'Lielly and SLON and AAPuke, why don;t you do it youreslf. DOn;t talk about it, do it. But wait, like Mike Moore or Bill Mahre, it's satire.

    And, I'll pull up an acting gig to make my point. In the movie Pearl harbor, Baldiwn played Doolittle. In the movie the night before the B-25's lainched from the carrier to bomb Japan, Baldwin said, "You know how I know we'll win this war, it's right there" as he pointed to a bunch of young aviators inspecting their aircraft. Greta acting considering this piece of shit would suck Bill Clinton's dick who not only evaded the draft but went to Russia to protest the war in Nam.

    What isn't true about "Looking at America" ?
    The wingnuts can't stomach the fact that it was THEIR president that was responsible for it all.

    Seriously, just go back to Huffington Post already

    .. and I fear history will be a far harsher judge of the the Invasion and Occupation that we contemporaneous with these events have been. I may be wrong, but I tend to think the historical process has changed, and that long period of detachment may have become less important than it once was. Given the present circumstances and some of the hearings and investigations in progress, I think we may have a window to the historical perspective our predecessors lacked. The view is troubling.
    Posted by: A N O N Y M O U S at January 2, 2008 11:21 PM

    OR we just think we don't need the wisdom that comes with taking some time to digest events because we as a society have become accustommed to more and more instant gratification, microwave ovens, wireless hispeed internet. Don't fall for the secular delusion that man is now god. To be sure in the ultra scrutiny of today's media, the window has probably shortened but not as much as you assume. As for hearings and investigations, I FEAR the majority of these are circle jerks by Congress to obscure the facts and especially their poor performance on other issues. Lets have a hearing and talk endlessly and primp in front of the camera...

It must release dopamine into your system or something. I am an NON partisan as a realist can be. if you think any of the present day Democratic Party leaders are capable or up to the task of leading this country in this environment then maybe its time to fire up your cryogenic chamber and preserve yourself until that one world govt finally materializes in about 250 years.

    yeah, thats me. Good luck voting for your poet warlord John Edwards. I hope he scares the muslim assholes that want to chop your head off if you dont convert.

    If thats true then hes a stoner scumbag. What more can I say about that? Can't polish a turd.

    You think Bush has scared extremist Muslims?

    Absoultely. heard of Ghadaffi?

    N.O.? yeah, none of the blame belongs on the irresponsible mayor and governor does it? They were only hours closer to the scene and (should have) had a better handle on teh siutation. Oh yeah, and theres that little problem of building a city BELOW SEA LEVEL in hurricane alley.

    Out of panic and ideology, President Bush squandered America’s position of moral and political leadership, swept aside international institutions and treaties, sullied America’s global image, and trampled on the constitutional pillars that have supported our democracy through the most terrifying and challenging times. These policies have fed the world’s anger and alienation and have not made any of us safer.

    In the years since 9/11, we have seen American soldiers abuse, sexually humiliate, torment and murder prisoners in Afghanistan and Iraq. A few have been punished, but their leaders have never been called to account. We have seen mercenaries gun down Iraqi civilians with no fear of prosecution. We have seen the president, sworn to defend the Constitution, turn his powers on his own citizens, authorizing the intelligence agencies to spy on Americans, wiretapping phones and intercepting international e-mail messages without a warrant.

    This is the Bush resume and the wingnuts think this deserves another 4 years of a republican presidency.

    It happened after Iraq, hence its CAUSED by Iraqi Freedom. failed logic in math right?

    Those darn terrorists never did ANYTHING before 2003 did they? tell that to my brother as he pulled his buddies from the USMC barracks rubble in Beirut 1983.

    Thanks Jeff!

    Here you go, 'mike.' This should be a piece of cake. Debunk this doozie.

    #4 - More lies about Fox News. We could do a top ten list every month the way Oralmann spews them. Whether it's a smear of Chris Wallace, or a slander of Brit Hume, the one thing you can trust about Monkeymann's attacks is that you cannot trust Monkeymann's attacks. That's what made this #4: Keith Olbermann contructs an ostentatious salvo at Fox over a leak. And guess what? Every single statement he made about Fox News was false. Untrue. An elaborate edifice of lies.

    Wasted, ANONYMOUS, you see what Jeff is trying to do here, don't you?

    If he can get me to attack Johnny's so called 'lie #4' that he just posted, he can then just sit back and enjoy the fireworks while I work up J$'s ire.

    You see, Jeff has a long and sordid history of doing this on this board, especially when he desperately needs to deflect attention away from himself.

    He INTENTIONALLY tries to play us against Johnny, Cecelia, Janet, Sharon, .... whoever!

    THEN, if he succeeds in doing that, he can just sit back and razz and pick at us a little bit from time to time....and when the fireworks are finally over, he'll pick out one tiny little sound byte and try to taunt us with THAT for a while as well.

    And thats why he is a troll. He lives to instigate. Harmony among ideological rivals is his biggest nightmare on this blog.

    Jeff is a lot like that arcade game called "whack a mole"!

    If you don't know how it goes, there is a mole sticking out of a hole. You're supposed to whack it back into it's hole. Every time you 'whack' the mole, it pops up out of another hole. The trick is to whack it as many times as you can in a fixed period of time.

    What I can't fathom is why anyone would willingly choose to play the 'mole' on a discussion blogboard?

    You're almost right. Energy dependence is our problem - but its the fact that we depend on huge centralized corporate systems to shove energy down our throats that is at the core. Sure we've pissed off the populations of oil-rich nations, due to the mercantilist gunboat diplomacy by which our tax dollars support the puppet governments of these places.

    That's where the terrorism comes from - its not our number-one problem, its a symptom of our number-one problem. Localized - even residential - production of energy is the Jeffersonian ideal. We need to cut the oil mandarins and their "grid" out of the picture and start getting excited about solar, wind, waves, geothermal, etc. Islamic terrorism will essentially stop.

    "Hope and strength among the Repubs"? Yer fucking high.

    Indeed.

    NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A senior adviser to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton was arrested and charged with aggravated drunken driving a day before the New Hampshire primary.
    Nashua police say Sidney Blumenthal was arrested early Monday morning after an officer pulled over a car traveling 70 mph in a 30 mph zone. Blumenthal, 59, is a journalist and former White House adviser to President Bill Clinton.

    Like the orange faced hack wouldn't make it his #1 story for 2 or 3 weeks if it was someone on the (R) side. Or you for that matter.....
