"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
The Hour of Spin began with its standard ritual: the opening spiel--one of the longest in Hour of Spin history. Granite state surprise... Clinton hitting back... Polling errors... What next for candidates?... Hillary cried! It's hump day at Olbermann Watch. But it's also Olbermann Lies About Fox News Day!
#5: Clinton's upset win really amounts to a tie. Obama has one more delegate than Hillary. Clinton credits her tears as helping. Obama may hit back harder. Hey, howcum this isn't "Democrats in Disarray?" You know, like "Republicans in Dissaray"? Slippery Shuster was called in. Olby again mentions Hillary talking about Al Qaeda. Adds that Edwards is an afterthought. Great thanks.
So far, pretty bland. KO not stepping on anyone's toes very hard. On to The Wolffe Man. Richardson is going to drop out. Unless he doesn't. But he might. Hard-hitting KO kwestion: which campaign was surprised more? Oralmann decrees that Hillary's "hurt my feelings" debate joke was a "signal moment". Great thanks.
#4: Keith uses a nonexistent word ("coronate") to kick off his look at polling. Olbermann's Brain was the "expert" and he chortled about how polls are poorly reported. A brief nod to explain away the Diebold controversy but otherwise a bland segment. KO is really playing it safe tonight. But that's about to change because--ta da!--the Republicans are up next!
After an attack on Rudy (Blue Blog Source: Carpetbagger Report) came #3: mentions of Willard [Ding!] and Huckabee. But then--boom!--it was back to Obama, Edwards, and Clinton again. Cue Dana Milbank, sans splashy suits, who spoke in generalities about mass media campaigns. Will Edwards and Richardson be viable after Super Tuesday? DM wasn't optimistic. Olby adds that Richardson is dropping out again. (Unless, of course, he doesn't.)
Then Fat Ass turned to the Republican side and asked if the race isnt "all chiefs and no Indians". Dana had a weasly answer and that was it, the sum total of Countdown's coverage of the GOP race. They should count themselves lucky. Great thanks.
#2: Britney, Dr Phil, and a plug for Oralmann's latest book. He bragged about how it's moving up on the New York Times Best Seller List--but that in itself is a lie. He claimed that the book was currenly #19 "on the New York Times Best Sellers list". As everyone knows: the New York Times list is not based upon total sales figures, but instead upon surveys of a selected sample of retail booksellers. The list is divided into Fiction and Non-Fiction sections, which each contains fifteen titles. Just like you can't "beat" Bill O'Reilly when he has three times the audience, you can't be #18 on a list that only goes to 15. The tip-off is the column titled "weeks on list"; see how there are no numbers next to Olbermoronn's book? That means it ain't on the list! We're not surprised at this sleazy attempt at self-promotion. He told the same lie about his last book.
#1: Rachel Maddow from Err America with her unbiased, trenchant commentary on politics.
In the Media Matters Minute, a familiar set of targets: Dick Morris plus a woman who dumped Olby (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters), and Major Garrett (Blue Blog Source: HuffPo...but we'll give you what Monkeymann won't: the other side of the story). Fixed News! [Ding!]
Stop the Tivo! Did we just catch Krazy Keith in Another Olbermann Lie? Here's what he said about the Major Garrett controversy:
Fox never even reported Begala's flat-out, on the record denial.
Update: Did we just catch Krazy Keith in Another Olbermann Lie? Yes we did.
