COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
What a lineup! It's that famous diversity of opinion and all those fresh faces that make The Hour of Spin must-miss tv. The opening spiel: Obama to speak again about the Rev! Hillary hits hard! McCain in Iraq: he "plans on getting a lot of Americans killed"! Bush is Herbert Hoover! And, who'da thunk it, another O'Reilly attack! It's a blue Monday at Olbermann Watch, on which not only do we catch Herr Olbermahn lying about Bill Kristol, but he also turns the Olbypocrisy dial to 11.
#5: The Times compares the Obama flap to Willie Horton: "a hysterical fabrication", rules Judge Olbermann. Obama to speak on race tomorrow, "breaking this hour" (yeah, if "this hour" were actually four hours ago). Olby commented on tomorrow's speech and it's "pivotalness" (yuck!). The Wolffe Man simpered but was not Great Thanksed.
On to Hillary, daring to question Obama's Iraq plan and quoting an Obama advisor. Also saying McCain is willing "to keep the war going" for 100 years. Olby rushed to give the "full context" of the Obama quote, but let the phony smear of McCain stand unrebutted. That's because Merkle is a slovenly political hack. Olby launched another series of Hillary attacks, suggesting her plan is no more set in stone than Obama's, etc etc. Dana Milbank, minus multicolored mufti, mumbled, and was not Great Thanksed.
#4: Delegates. No re-do in Florida. It will be left to a "rules committee fight". Bzzzz! Wrong answer. That would be the credentials committee. Obama gaining more super delegates. Chuck Todd nattered and was not Great Thanksed.
#3: McCain and Cheney "secretly" in Iraq. Today's bombings detailed. (A bombing always brings Iraq back to The Hour of Spin). The economy is sinking. Global markets tumbled. (Um, US markets actually went up today. Hmm, why do you think Edward R Olbermann conveniently forgot to mention that?) "Mister" Bush won't help homeowners! He wants to "help rich people get richer at the expense of the taxpayers"! Plus John McCain is a "warmonger"! Far-left Robinson was the ideal sock-puppet (he and Olby both kept batting around the "100 years" bit, never actually explaining what it meant) and was Great Thanksed.
After a Mackris! [Ding!] came #2: a plug for #1. #1: A whole segment devoted to O'Reilly. Happy, happy! Joy, joy! "Man on Fan" Olbermann, who had his MSNBC email account shut down for using it to proposition fans, who met them in sleazy hotel rooms bearing cheap Merlot, who then dumped them with a "don't ever call me again", was there to chortle over Bill O'Reilly's private life, reading Bill's words in his supposed-to-be-funny voice (yeah, that never gets old). Sickening, yes, but this is OlbyPlanet. Fixed News! [Ding!] Mackris! [Ding!] Loofah! [Ding!] Falafel! Falafel! [Ding!] [Ding!] Mackris! Mackris! Mackris! [Ding!] [Ding!] [Ding!] Well, The Laughing Stagehand liked it anyhow. How easy it is to dump stuff like this down the memory hole, eh Keith?
Oh, it should not surprise you that Edward R Olbermann, who had just finished smearing Bill Kristol for citing a story that had not been verified, read at length from unproven, unadjudicated charges filed in a civil suit as if they were documented fact. That is what we call off-the-charts Olbypocrisy.
In the Media Matters Minute, it was another O'Reilly attack (Blue Blog Source: Hillary Clinton's Media Matters), but Olbermann showed his true colors in how he handled the "worst" segment. It was basically a smear of Bill Kristol (Blue Blog Source: Marc Ambinder). In Olby's own words:
This morning's column, from the increasingly amateurish William Kristol, reported that despite his claims that he was elsewhere, Senator Obama was in the pews at Chicago's Trinity Church last July 22nd... Kristol had simply pasted the lie off the hate website Newsmax.
Now you have two, two, two OlbyLies in one. In the first place, Kristol didn't say Obama was there. As even Oralmann's Blue Blog Source admits, Kristol wrote that a reporter claims Obama was there. Olbermann Lie #1. Since he phrased it as a possibility, not as a fact, he obviously didn't "paste" anything. Olbermann Lie #2. Olbermann is a slovenly political hack and again a proven liar.

And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 681st day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will in fact be indicted".
