    Keith Olbermann: Responsible Journalist or Shamless Partisan Hack?

    ha, that is on point. TO be honest I am an independent who leans to the left, but man I watch maybe 10 mins of Olberman just on his copverage of the democratic race, but he is by far partisan, and annoying with how he is over dramatic.

    I also watch Oreilly, and even though I feel Oreilly is way overdramatic about stuff, olbermann takes the cake.

    "Journalist or shameless partisan hack"....hmmmm...let me think about it...

    (Great piece, Johnny!)

    I vote for shameless partisan hack. That would go for almost all of the on-air "talent" at MSDNC.

    "Journalist or shameless partisan hack"....

    Boy, if only they had stuff like this on my SATs I could have gotten into Princeton.

    This is a classic example of the saying that the bias in the press is not that they tell you want to think; the bias is that they tell you want to think about.

    Here, Olbermann and Shuster want us to think about Giuliani and his use of 9/11 in a campaign ad.

    They don't want us to think about Clinton doing the same thing.

    IOW, think about Rudy; don't think about Hillary.

    It's Air America Radio on MSDNC.

    Johnny, at this point it must be like shooting fish in a barrel.

    And with Keith, there's a lot of fish left in his barrel.

    Keith's a shameless partisan hack
    Political neutrality he'll lack
    "I'm not biased" he'll spew
    Big lies? He's told a few
    If you're (R) he's on the attack

    Keith now posts on the Daily Koz
    Spewing idiocy, one more dose
    A parody of unhinged
    Those views, on the fringe
    No dissent allowed, the mind's closed

    Olbermann and Matthews are caught laughing at a GOP primary speech for the second time:

    http://www.mediabistro.com/fishbowlDC/television/chris_keith_continue_to_laugh_at_gop_speeches_75384.asp

    Oh, the difference? You mean one is "images of 9/11" and the other one isn't? Man that is lame, even by your standards.

    Oh Please, Hillary posts that one little clip verses Rudy constantly running on 9/11. You cannot compare it, Rudy has made a career out of it. If 9/11 never occurred Rudy would not be running for president now.

    Do you think the pole slippery shuister has shoved up his ass hurts?Honestly, it has to hurt--having a ploe that large shoved up one's ass---granted Slippery is in the words of W a majorly large asshole--but even still---a pole that large shoved up an asshole like slippery--well-------

    Where are all of the "go obama" people tonight? Switching band wagons? Fingers firmly placed in the air?

    Anon-

    Crawford's little Miss Sunshine line regarding Rudy is funny? Maybe some context might help here, but I'm not getting it.

    Laura Ingraham's moniker for John Edwards (Silky Pony)is much funnier and no context is required--everybody gets it. I know it sticks in your craw anon, defender of the trial lawyers that you are. I think another good moniker for Edwards is Richie Rich, the Poor Little Rich Boy.

    Pretty left of you ANON- proclaiming the demise of the US. You see a republican would argue differently.
    "military, moral and economic "

    We still are the military leaders by far... who would challenge? China? And they weren't considered strong militarily before 2001?

    We still have the moral high ground- Moral ground is not measured by a vote in the UN. What are you a chavez fan too?

    And our global economic demise was called 4 years ego when the european markets blazed past us.... temporarily. They are in shambles now. And how long has the asian economy been making huge growth gains.... long before 2001.

    So as much as you'd like to write the obit of the USA and blame it on Bush... the republicans of this great country challenge you.

    benson, nail on head. anon is a huge puko chavez fan. The man who has admitted to chewing coca daily, shocker. Explains a lot, huh?

    Baadeep, baadeep, baadeep, Govenor Romney, baadeep, do you think, baadeep, do you think, I sound like an idiot when, baadeep, baadeep, when I don't have all, nnnnnniighhhh...evening...baadeep, baadeep, to write my questions down?..

    Good Night and Good luck and that's all folks.

    Olbermann and Matthews can be guaranteed to openly jeer and laugh at one or more Republican candidates per primary coverage. The fact that MSNBC insists on letting these two openly partisan hacks anywhere near their political coverage speaks volumes about how low the standards at NBC have fallen. At least they saw the light and won't let either of them host anymore debates. If someone at Fox or CNN had done the same (twice) to a Democratic candidate, the Kossacks would be demanding the networks be shut down. But let matthews & olbermann do it and they are celebrated as heroes (although Matthews is still on the ropes with the KosKids because of his comments regarding HRC last week).

    > Olbermann, by all accounts, is largely apolitical.

    I shouldn't have been drinking when I read that. You owe me a new keyboard.

    http://www.olbermannwatch.com/archives/2006/05/the_list.php

    Largely apolitical huh? This is the guy who thanks (among others), Elizabeth Edwards, the entire Clinton family and several well-known pro-Democratic websites in his latest book. This is the guy who is now blogging at Daily Kos, a pro-Democratic website. This is the guy who has openly bragged about partying with the Clinton's. This is the guy who has twice now openly laughed at and jeered at Republican candidates while supposedly serving as a "news" anchor covering primary coverage. Sorry Anonymous, it would seem that not only are YOU over the top, you're out of line and completely off your mark (and your rocker) on this one.

    Why did you have to print the answer? I was still thinking about it.

    "Oh Please, Hillary posts that one little clip verses Rudy constantly running on 9/11. You cannot compare it, Rudy has made a career out of it. If 9/11 never occurred Rudy would not be running for president now."


    Will someone please tell me what qualifies Hillary to be president and dont say she'll do a better jon then a rebublican

    Olbermann, by all accounts, is largely apolitical.

    posted by anony

    OMG! This lie from someone who claims they don't like or defend olbermahn. Are you deaf and blind, too? We know your the other one.......

    Mr. blank-FLUCKER (cue OLD SPICE jingle).....your complaint about people not seeing Tiki's political affiliation is now laughable....

    Rush Limbaugh is a self proclaimed conservative....a "right-winger." He is a free market capitalist, who exalts Ronald Reagan to the level of diety.....He reads Lincoln on his radio program every Thanksgiving, extoling the great influence God has had on our nation in the past through believers and decries the secularist trends we have seen since the 1940's. He also describes himself as pro-life.

    Now if you doubt his sincerity, that is your right to do so.....however, to place your biased, unobjective and unsubstantiated belief as fact that Limbaugh is apolitical is illogical and not defensable.

    The same is true of Olbermann. He has expressed radical leftist dogma as true....including the lies of decades of US hegemony. He also has decried the neoconservative movement as well as the beliefs of fundamentalist Christians. Combined, these positions are clearly those of radical leftists.

    Also, his taking on the cause of voter fraud in the 2004 election, which was another pet project of the rapid left, is another sign of his political affiliation.

    Again, if you think Olbermann is "acting," and doubt his sincerity, than that is your opinion and I ask for somekind of reasoning and evidence of your conclusion.

    Olbermann is the left's Rush Limbaugh in the sense of his level objectivity and tactics. Limbaugh has a much larger audience and is more talented with regard to humor and satire....but that is an opinion.

    Your analysis leaves many unanswered questions and is not backed up well....Frankly, I am surprised.

    Oh, the irony......


    If you saw Barber on television and didn't know he was a Republican, you must have had the sound off. Television comes from "tele" (the Greek word for at a distance) and "vision" (the act of seeing or sight).

    It is the standard Olbermann defender argument that he is no worse than .... Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity..etc...It has been tried time and time again.
    J$ needs to make a list of the top Olbyloon defense tactics. This one would be near the top of the list.

    Olby would make Goebbels blush.

    Check this out, patsy!

    http://relevantortrue.blogspot.com/

    "Matthews is not partisan. He supported Bush. He has been highly critical of Senator Clinton."

    Of course he's partisan. You think it was just an accident that he worked for Jimmy Carter and Tip O'Neil? And when did he ever support Bush on anything? He may be critical of Hillary, but that's because he's in love with Obama. Her more liberal challenger. Chris even said Obama's speeches made him cry. Good grief.

    "Olbermann, by all accounts, is largely apolitical."

    Apolitical eh? Like calling Republicans terrorists? How many conservatives has Keith invited to his show in the last five years? How many liberals has Keith called "Worst Person in the World" in the last five years? How many "Special Comments" has Keith made against liberals in the last five years? If you believe that Keith is apolitical, then you obviously have never seen his show.

    I think it's well established as well as well documented Olbermahn is anything, but, "apolitical." Next?

    Like I was saying.......

    Was there a reason why you reposted my post @ 10:16, patsy? Are you that bored?

    Check this out, patsy!

    Saying Olbermann is apolitical is neither expressing a fondness for him nor defending him. In fact, in my book, it is rather a slam. I just don't see any evidence that Olbermann has any firm political beliefs, certainly no solid partisan home. Had we been in an era of Democratic control when Olbermann began his rise, and he saw rising conservatism on the horizon, I have no doubt he would have become have ridden that wave. He was looking for a niche.

    Had we been in an era of democratic control, Olbermahn would have no rise. No pun intended, of course. It's just fact. If a (d) wins the presidency, Olby will be over, he will have nothing to talk about, besides O'Reilly. A whole hour of O'Reilly bashing with Brittany news? Money well spent, More Snot Nosed BroadCasters!

    8:19 from someone who supposedly doesn't watch or like Olbermahn. Hmm.

    Thanks again, loser! Come out from under your moms bed, now!

    Billary is getting desperate, severing ties to Dubai. What's next, will she start dressing like a woman?

    8:19 from someone who supposedly doesn't watch or like Olbermahn. Hmm.

    Such a relevant and respectful way to recognize the life of Martin Luther King. This is an ideal example of how right-wingers show respect for their betters.

    "I don't feel no ways tired." Hillary in '07 on mlk day, with her fake accent.

    '08 mlk day, Bill sleeps through mlk speech in Harlem. How's that for respect, slob, anony, 'why,' drug addict?

    Not a peep from the orange faced hack or any of his minions! Shocker!

    Keith Olbermann: Responsible Journalist or Shamless Partisan Hack?

    Neither.

    He's comedian, who's not very funny, doing satire.
    Countdown is like the Daily Show or the Colbert Report.
    On the heels of the very successful Daily Show and Colbert Report, MSNBC decided to have show very similar.
    The problems with the show are olbermann is not very funny, he leans very far to the left of center and from time to time he tries to portray himself as a serious news journalist.

    If a Democrat takes office, he'll have to decide if he wants to report the news or have an hour of bashing Republics. The later will make his ratings suffer.

    Actually, the surge is working BIG TIME. The only ones denying it are America Hating treasonous losers.

    Which interestingly is also an apt definition for people who feel they must pose as conservatives.

    Johnny Dollar is the man.

    Perhaps you haven't noticed how Bovine frequently accused other posters as "posted by patsy/why"
    I don't give a fuck, since it only provides insight into Bovine's hallucinations.

    posted by patsy/why

    I was dead on every time, that's what pisses you off, loser. Now, to quote your hero whom you can't defend, "go kill yourself."

    According to you, using mockery and ridicule to laugh at a certifiable paranoid moron, Bovine Queen, is the antithesis of free speech?

    How about I use "the real royal king, the paranoid moron" as a moniker? Will that please your definition?

    "putting words in their mouth" Really?

    Now, excuse me. I'm out to hunt Hollywood writers who might think up fucked up things Dumbya might say. That or reporters telling us the really fucked up things Dumbya sez.

    Actually, you can mock and you can ridicule others under your own name, Patsy. That you've seen fit to do it under a plethora of names has created the very problem you're lamenting.

    Frankly, if you really think it's that insulting to be accused of using a variety of monikers... then stop doing it... Duh!

    As it stands now, the odds that anyone will be correct in identifying you as a shapeshifter, are astronomically in their favor.

    That's something for which you have only yourself to blame. Not me... not RK.... not George Bush.... YOU.

    Pat$y Cake$ $said:

    ""putting words in their mouth" Really?
    Perhaps you haven't noticed how Bovine frequently accused other posters as "posted by patsy/why"
    I don't give a fuck, since it only provides insight into Bovine's hallucinations."

    For someone who doesn't give a "f**k" about RK and others calling you Pats$ you sure do a whole lot of moaning, crying and bitching about it.
