    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    January 9, 2008
    Crystal Balling Keith Olbermann and The Hour of Spin

    Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly book Culture Warrior

    What to do? For months Keith Olbermann had been shamelessly pumping Hillary Clinton's candidacy, until an angry mob of Kossacks slapped him down. The secret was out: Oralmann was a shill for Hill. So on Monday, he did a dramatic about face--all of a sudden Hillary Clinton became his target. She's playing the "fear card". She even--gasp!--mentioned Al Qaeda. She's trying to "bait" poor Barack Obama. And the ultimate Hour of Spin slap in the face: Olby repeatedly compared Hillary Clinton to Karl Rove.

    Aside from demonstrating how Monkeymann never backs the right horse, Tuesday's results leave the infamous, deplorable one in a quandary. What will he do now? Here are just a few of the possibilities:

    • Keep up the attack on Hillary (advantage: mollify the blue blogs)
    • Switch horses again and go back into Clinton's pocket (advantage: more blue dress interviews)
    • Lay off both of them and redouble smears against Republicans (advantage: buys him time)
    • Suggest that the election was stolen by Diebold (advantage: truckles to his favorite charity, Daily Kos)

    What do you think Keith will do tonight? Use our valuable bandwidth for your predictions and comments!

    I think a combination. Olbermann will lay off Obama, attack the Republicans and Bush, and towards the end of the show, try to slide back into Hillary's pocket. He might even give some form of apology to Hillary.

    Without Bush as his lodestar, the world just doesn't make sense to him.

    Okay, even with Bush as his lodestar, his world doesn't make sense either.

    There'll always be O'Reilly.

    Frankly, I've always been a bit surprised over his support for Hillary. Unlike him, she understood that we couldn't just abandon Iraq to Al-Qaeda and other radical anti-western and anti-American forces.

    We had learned - so I thought - after 9/11 that a failed state like Afghanistan would be used by the terrorists as a base for operations.

    Removing them from Afghanistan but then letting them setup shop in Iraq makes no sense.

    But Bush was for it; so one must be against it.

    I wonder if Obama will be on Countdown tonight. Edwards was the second place finisher last week, and he was on Countdown the very next night.

    It was funny seeing Dee Dee Myers "remind" Keith that he went after Hillary the night before. Although, this is the same dipshit that said Hillary was NEVER a frontrunner.

    "I do detect a pro-Hillary bias in his reporting on the Democratic nomination process - at all times. I never see him interviewing any of the other candidates on Countdown, but I've seen him interview Hillary. I'm going to be interested if he does get those interviews how he acts, or if he'll ever ask Hillary a tough question."

    This is just one kos kiddie out of tons. Yet, mike still claims he "see's no bias towards Hillary when he watches."

    These numbers are pretty bad for MSNBC for their election coverage night coverage. CNN & FOX where pulling over 3.5 million. MSNBC highest for the entire night, 1.7 mil, the demo numbers are absymal. check it out for yourself:

    Olbermann's new book, sinking fast (expect a shameless plug tonight). Sales Rank: #678 in Books

    I would say Olbermann smears the republicans relentlessly contrasted to an "'aw shucks" attitude towards himself and other pundits who were writting HRC's obit only 48 hours ago....

    Both party's waters are very muddy right now but I am sure Olbermann will spin the democrats' situation as indicative of a healthy, vibrant and needed debate while the repubs are dealing with a schism...

    The individual democratic candidates will be hands off for now....I even wonder if Olbermann will ever mention HRC's terrorism comments from Monday ever again while we have had to hear him repeat Cheney's EXACT comments over and over again.....

    In terms of the election fraud....I will eat my hat if he pursues that loony stuff seriously...I mean come on now, he is under medical care for his manic depression and such paranoid delusions should be thwarted with his expensive and quality upper west side neuropsych pharma!

    Olby will smear the GOP because that is his typical modus operandi and reason for breathing air everyday. I think he will wait out the Dem situation for a primary or two to see if any of the candidates takes a commanding lead. He's got no spine so he won't take a stance.

    First it was weepy Hillary complaining that the good old boys were beating up on her because of her gender. Now some pundits are saying Barack Hussein lost NH because the voters are racist, not because the pollsters were wrong about who was in the lead.

    Oh yeah, and because Hillary got more votes.

    with his expensive and quality upper west side neuropsych pharma!

    Posted by: cee at January 9, 2008 7:17 PM

    His pharmaceutical cocktail or cocktails might explain his olbsession with Bill O'Reilly. Actually, it might explain a lot of his issues and facial expressions.

    This is unbelievable. Daily Kos was wrong about Olbermann's election coverage in Iowa last week, crazy and biased john gibson drools over the angry liberal mob's attacks on Keith, and johnny dollar falls for all of it because it fits his narrative of Keith being a "spin" miester. Let me make this clear for you: Keith said Obama "handily" won Iowa, then did what every other professional election analyst does and broke the numbers down to say that without Obama getting 20% of the Independent vote, Obama and Hillary would've finished right behind each other in Iowa.

    If you want to look for bias from Keith, it's there all right, but it's not necessarily pro-Hillary, it's pro-Democrat, ok? Good.

    "professional election analyst"

    Posted by: chuck at January 9, 2008 8:18 PM

    Worth re posting.......It should be against the law to use that in the same paragraph or book for that matter, with Olbermahn.

    My prediction is that the Factor will put down every democrat in sight within the next 24 hours and conveniently ignore all republicans running for president.

    What a partisan !

    Posted by: Why Don't I Think at January 9, 2008 6:17 PM

    Funny, you just describe what Keith does every night if you only substitute republicans with Democrats.

    State proposes to take control of home temps

    By: BRADLEY J. FIKES - Staff Writer
    Revision to building standards would make some power conservation mandatory

    California utilities would control the temperature of new homes and commercial buildings in emergencies with a radio-controlled thermostat, under a proposed state update to building energy efficiency standards.

    Don't worry; I am sure they will still let terrorists call other terrorists overseas. Big Brother will just control your thermostat.

    Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam
    by Daniel Pipes
    January 7, 2008

    In a recent analysis, "Was Barack Obama a Muslim?" I surveyed available evidence and found it suggests "Obama was born a Muslim to a non-practicing Muslim father and for some years had a reasonably Muslim upbringing under the auspices of his Indonesian step-father." In response, David Brock's organization, Media Matters for America (MMfA), which calls itself a "progressive research and information center dedicated to comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media," has criticized one of my sources of information.

    MMfA contends in "Daniel Pipes relied on disputed LA Times article to revive Obama-Muslim falsehood," that "key aspects" of a March 16, 2007, Los Angeles Times article I quoted were later challenged by another newspaper account, "History of schooling distorted," by Kim Barker in the Chicago Tribune on March 25.

    Falsehood? That's a strong word.

    So you admit you're just as "partisan" as the man you love to hate.
    Great thanks.

    Posted by: Why Don't You Think at January 9, 2008 10:04 PM

    Did your bar graph are your rocket science tell you to use a name? Just curious.....

    Please explain to all of us at this site, shithead, what exactly is wrong with practicing Islam.
    (since you were so compelled to post this article)

    We're all ears.

    Posted by: Why Don't You Think at January 9, 2008 10:18 PM

    Since you get your news from the orange faced hack, 'truthout' and the huffington, I guess you haven't heard. We're at war with, guess who?

    You really need to look into this "name" disorder syndrome you have.
    It appears to be getting worse.

    Posted by: Why Don't You Think at January 9, 2008 10:25 PM

    Just answer the question and I won't ask anymore. You've been posting on here all day long, but, only used your name about 20% of the time. Just curious. I think you have the disorder, don't you?

    No you tell me.
    So we're at war with the religion of Islam?
    Stop beating around the bush.
    Please clarify.

    Aren't you a perfesser? What do you tell your students? Embrace the terrorists? Try to reason with them? They don't exist?

    So now that's straightened out.
    You're wrong AGAIN.... and it's clear who has the disorder.

    Posted by: Why Don't You Think at January 9, 2008 10:38 PM

    Well, then someone who harps the same as you do was using your pc.

    The problem with Islam is that about half of all Muslims wish all non-Muslims were dead. That's the problem. And it was true ten years ago, long before any of them ever heard of George W. Bush.

    Wow you are loon. I don't think dumbest liberal on this site buy into that. Go give away your freedom to the state. I'll keep mine.

    So you admit you're just as "partisan" as the man you love to hate.
    Great thanks.

    Posted by: Why Don't I Think at January 9, 2008 10:04 PM

    I guess you can't read. I admitted nothing in that sentence.
    However, I have never lied about where I fall on the politcal spectrum like Keith. I also don't host a "News Show" or claim to "impartial" or claim to be "Edward R. Murrow".

    You didn't help anyone out. All u did was embarrass yourself and prove you are a religious bigot.
    The problem isn't with the religion of Islam...its with those who bastardize it.

    Big difference between regulating your thermostat and monitoring overseas calls with 'terrorists.' I take it you think the war is 'fake,' too?

    Vote was rigged.

    Skimmed from the other candidates and given to Billary.

    Notice little Jeffrey is still stonewalling the Islam question.

    Wahabism is the RADICAL
    ISLAMIC teaching that is followed by the Muslim
    terrorists who are now
    waging Jihad against the western world. Since
    it is politically expedient
    to be a CHRISTIAN when seeking major
    public office in the
    States , Barack Hussein Obama has joined

    the United Church of Christ in an attempt to downplay his Muslim

    background. ALSO, keep in mind that when he was sworn into
    office he
    DID NOT use the Holy Bible, but instead the Koran!
