"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Another opening spiel bellowed by The Daily Kos's very own Bathtub Boy: Yesterday's Dem debate! GOP slime machine! Larry Craig! Another O'Reilly attack! Why does Bill O'Reilly hate the troops?!? Britney Spears! It's hump day at Olbermann Watch. We might add it's Blue Blog Source Day as well, but then, that's every day on The Hour of Spin.
#5: Bush called "Hoover", his Middle East tour a "photo-op" [Ding!] Clip of Obama. Clip of Hillary. Karl Rove is a racist! The Pundit for All Occasions yammered. More talk (day 3 and counting) about an uneventful Dem debate. Maddow was a fresh face; she hasn't been on with Keith for at least, oh, 21 hours. Supposedly there to prattle even more about that debate, she manageed to ridicule the Repubs, which is what Olby wanted.
#4: It's the Republican slime machine! Anonymous fliers in SC smearing McCain and others (Blue Blog Source: Talking Points Memo). KO references the "values crowd" who are "wallowing in the dirt", and insists Huckabee wants to "impose a theocracy". Olby was upset that someone was impugning John McCain's integrity. Don't these people know that calling McCain a liar and delusional is Keith Olbermann's department? Move along, this is his corner!! Lefty Alter muttered. Plus Larry Craig.
#3: Once again, an entire segment on Bill O'Reilly. Yes, this is A-Mess-NBC's "news hour of record". Attack #402 was manufactured outrage over an O'Reilly comment about doubting 200,000 veterans are homeless (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters). Except that's not what he said. He doubted that 200,000 are sleeping in the streets and under bridges every night. But glossing over such details has always been SOP on OlbyPlanet. "Veterans groups" are "unanimously" outraged! Oh, which ones? Monkeymann never said. (Really, you don't expect him to tell the truth, do you?) Reickhoff (of IAVA, the only vet group mentioned) piled on, to Oralmann's glee.
#2: O.J., book plug, Jessica Simpson. #1: Kevin and Britney. In the Media Matters Minute, it's another example of the circular, convoluted trajectory that Herr Olbermann sometimes uses to distance himself from his own attacks. Here's how it works: Keithy spots (at Olbermann Watch no less) a clip from Fox & Friends. He gets irritated and brings it to the attention of a friendly blue blog, shall we say, purely hypothetically of course, TVNewser? TVN nitpicks the phraseology, giving Oralmann just what he needs. And tonight, just by coincidence, the F&F gang become "worst person" nominees, with language that eerily parallels the TVN post, plus the usual quota of insults and personal atatcks. (Oh, there was also a new claim for the Merklemann mythology: Roger Ailes wanted to hire Olby to host Fox & Friends! If you believe that, we have some lovely oceanfront property in Kansas you might be interested in.) Plus the "racist" Investors Business Daily (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters). But "worst" was saved for "lunatic fringe right winger" Hugh Hewitt and his guest Fred Kagan (Blue Blog Source: Think Progress).
On Tuesday night Fat Ass found himself in third place once again, both in total viewers and in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo". Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 1 [LOW]
