"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Another opening, another spiel: Dems playing chicken! The Republican recession! "Non-profit groups" expose "countless lies about Iraq"! More attacks on Fox! It's hump day at Olbermann Watch.
#5: Dems fighting it out. Bear concerned that they're "collectively risking November". Dana Milbank, sans splashy suits, nattered. Surprise, surprise! Another blue-dress interview with John Edwards (D). Yes, this is the third one in as many months. (By all means, see The List!) Just by coincidence, Edwards has led the Daily Kos readership poll almost continuously since May of last year. So new Kos Kid Keith has kwite a bit of katching up to do. Edward R Olbermann peppered Silky with the kind of challenging, tough questions that Tim Russert only dreams of asking:
#4: McCain's in trouble because he had to do a fund-raiser where he got a million dollars. Giuliani sinking. They're all "strapped for cash" and isn't that "bad management"? Olbermann's Brain sniggered.
After comparing Gen Petraeus to the Soviet Union Monkeymann gave us #3: all those lies about Iraq, courtesy of a study from a "non profit" center for public integrity. Bush told "260 lies", Colin Powell 255, etc. Military expert Maddow yammered (When did she serve anyhow?) and the two of them spoke wistfully about the hope for impeachment proceedings. See Dogs below for another aspect of this.
#2: Britney, Amy Winehouse. #1: Heath Ledger. In the Media Matters Minute, Oralmann attacked Newt Gingrich and Fox Noise [Ding!] but saved "worst" for the eeevil John Gibson of Fixed News [Ding!] (Blue Blog Source: Think Progress). Keithy sneeringly compared his alleged "friend" Gibson to a serial killer and a mental case. A serial killer?!? Is that what passes for "good taste" on OlbyPlanet? Oh, and Bathtub Boy? Last time we checked, you were the one in therapy.
Dogs That Did Not Bark: On OlbyPlanet it's all about selection. Report this story, don't report that one. Include this detail, but leave that one out. How many times has Bear ridiculed and dismissed a skeptical global warming viewpoint because it was "funded" by oil interests or lobbyists or Exxon or the like? The issue of who paid for it was so important that it rendered the entire study worthless. And yet tonight Olbermoronn never even told us who funded the "non profit" study on Iraq "lies". Not a word. Not a syllable. If Exxon money is so central to judging a global warming opinion, why isn't George Soros money equally important with a dubious Iraq "study"? And so it is with economic news as well. We documented over and over how Edward R Olbermann totally ignored economic numbers, Wall Street soaring, and record low unemployment numbers for months and months. On Tuesday night, all of a sudden the stock market was Big News on OlbyPlanet. Why? Because it went down. Today, just one day later, the market rebounding, rising close to 600 points over the course of seven hours, a nearly unprecedented turnaround. No one will be a bit surprised that after hyping the falling markets, Krazy Keith completely spiked any reportage of today's dramatic rise. That's because the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann is a slovenly political hack.
On Monday night, Bear found himself in a most miserable fourth place, but he was able to scratch out an only slightly less miserable third place in the coveted, pivotal, much-beloved, critical, all-important "key demo". Tonight's MisterMeter reading: 2 [LOW]
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 625th day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will be indicted".
