    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    May 23, 2008
    Meet the OlbyLoons: Katy Tur (Keith's Naked Little Media Slut)

    Katy Tur08.jpg

    Katy Tur is an OlbyLoon. And not just any OlbyLoon but Keith Olbermann number one OlbyLoon and Media Slut. Keith loves to call women sluts and toss around the c-word so we're sure Keith won't mind if we do the same here with his little GirlToy. When she's not busy trading sexual favors to advance her career, she's busy trading on Keith's connections in the broadcast industry to advance the same. Katy would like to make a reputation for herself as a broadcaster when all she's done by prostituting herself in using her Sugar Daddy's connections is give herself a "reputation" which she will never live down as the college kid who got naked and bedded Keith in order to get on TV. Katy lives in a tortured state of existence which makes Keith Olbermann seem especially appealing.

    Keith Olbermann, who has a long-standing history of "helping" women with their careers in exchange for...err...ummm..."dating" him, is apparently once again making good on his promises to an impressionable young college co-ed named Katy Tur who, at 24 years old, has gone from college dorm room, to the Olbermann casting couch to on-air reporter for Channel 11 News (CW) in New York City - all in just a matter of months. Apparently putting her nose to the "old grindstone" (or whatever Olbermann calls it) has really paid off!

    It was in March that we first reported on Katy's miraculous good fortune in landing an on-air reporting gig in the largest media market in the United States with no previous on-air reporting experience so its time to check in and see how she's doing. Readers will recall that Katy, who graduated from the "prestigious" University of California at Santa Barbara without a degree in journalism or communications, and whose only experience was a brief internship at a 3rd-rate TV station in California arranged by her parents answered this ad:

    General Assignment Reporter (Freelance) WPIX/WB11 in New York has an exciting opportunity available for a General Assignment Reporter. Qualified candidates should possess strong and exceptional delivery of news on-air, and the ability to generate, report and edit stories. Clear and concise public communicator and visible professional representative of station's news broadcast. The ideal candidate must have a college degree in a related field and 3+ years reporting experience. Visit our website at and submit your resume with required salary expectations and cover letter today or mail your tape to: WPIX, Attn: Human Resources, 220 E. 42nd Street, New York, NY 10017 EOE

    One can only wonder why someone who did not meet even the minimum criteria for the job would even bother to apply. Katy not only applied but beat out hundreds of other applicants to land the job despite zero experience! Responding to accusations that Olbermann played a role in landing her a job for which she was clearly not qualified, WPIX spokewoman Jessica Bellucci implausibly claimed, "She got the job on her own merit". Of course the real message from WPIX and Bellucci to young women interested in a career in broadcast journalism was clear: don't worry about silly things like journalism degrees or working your way up in smaller markets just find a Sugar Daddy in the biz and hold on tight!

    As for being an equal opportunity employer, I wonder if we will ever hear from any of the other QUALIFIED applicants who were turned down to give KO's GirlToy her shot at the big time. Keith loves to portray himself as a man of the people - in the abstract perhaps he can justify that - but when comes to trampling over the opportunities for hard-working, dedicated professionals who EARNED their each step in their career Keith is all about Keith.

    Katy's first big moment was the crane collapse which destroyed several buildings in midtown Manhattan and killed four people. Katy, broadcasting live from the scene described the action for viewers,

    "This is exciting!", gushed Tur.

    "Exciting!"? For her maybe but less so for the hundreds of people made homeless by the tragedy and the four people who were crushed to death. Oh well, in OlbyWorld its always about Keith why should KatyWorld be any different. The death and destruction was exciting FOR HER and of course the story of the day was not really about people losing their homes or lives or family members. It was about Katy getting to do real live broadcasting on a real TV station. You can just about here Katy squeel "Weeeeeeee! Look at me! I'm on TeeeeeVeeeee!" as she steps over dead bodies in the rubble. Nice.

    A local vlogger shot some video of Katy in action at the crane collapse (sorry but Channel 11 edited out Katy's "This is exciting" line). I also found some video of Katy covering a horrific story where a dead fetus was found inside a Catholic Church. Katy's take on the story - it's great that someone was "helped" by dumping the dead fetus for the monsignor to find inside the church, her first interview is a "former parishioner" who can barely contain his delight that such a wonderful thing has happened.

    Bob Cox: The next Worst Person in the World! Olby, of course, will use the moment when he names Bob as WPITW to make himself the center of attention. That's our Olby.

    If you want to see the video, go to the Olbermannwatch channel on YouTube. We're having a problem getting it on here.

    I fixed it. Video should show OK now.

    In case your wondering, there is no nudity in this post or in the video. The use of the word "naked" is just a shameless ploy to generate traffic from Google and on YouTube. I wouldn't do it except it works and gets us ratings and we know Keith will appreciate our use of a tried and trued "sweeps week" ratings stunt.

    And if you are still wondering...the use of the word "slut" is just a joke. Get it? You know, like when Keith joked around about Paris Hilton being hit in the face with a cell phone. Remember "A Slut and Battery" or "other things in her face". We always thought those were such hilarious comments that we thought they'd be a laugh riot here. So please consider the term "naked little media slut" as our homage to Keith sort of like Keith does an homage to Murrow each night by appropriating Murrow's "Good Night and Good Luck" sign off.


    I wonder how many qualified minority applicants got over looked so that Katy Tur could have her shopping money. I wonder how many frat boys at the University of California at Santa Barbara passed her around as the frat house "sheep" before Olby got a hold of her. Can you imagine if O'Reilly had secured a job for his younger wife? There would be a daily segment on meltdown.

    Man, that video and especially the music along with "naked" is genius Robert.

    I haven't watched CW11 News in ages, unless if I'm still up at 5AM and flipping around the morning news shows. As somebody that actually has something close enough to a journalism degree--a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Communication Arts--this is downright frustrating. She only got the damn reporting job because of her Keith Konnections. Now, I could draw a comparison to Courtney Friel, but her husband is pretty much the same age as her (right?) and not the epitomy of cable news evil that has destroyed a once-beloved brand and network. And just like her Sugar Daddy lover, Katy is able to do that pseudo-serious journalist voice to make people think they're credible.
    I'm just so mad right now.

    I love the music, too. Perfect choice.

    Not to mention I now have "Lyin' Eyes" in my head. Luckily, I have so much music on my computer to clean it out.

    Like Keith, she should keep her mouth shut
    Like Keith, she's the five o'clock slut
    Went to UCSB
    Are you kidding me?
    She should work at a Pizza Hut

    Go here...
    ...and look for the story "Cops Continue to Investigate NJ Triple Murder". The unqualified girlfriend of Keith filed the report. There's probably other reports on that video page, but I'm finished looking right now.

    By the way, what do Katy's fellow anchors, reporters, and staff at the CW11 even think of her? Do they fall in with Edward R. Olbermann's ideology and persona and therefore agree with the hiring and current position?

    This is going to leave a scar...

    This sort of thing--hiring somebody because they're dating a higher-up--happens quite often in this business (any business, for that matter), but the fact that it's *his* girlfriend makes it so frustrating.


    I agree that this happens all the time, and certainly in the media.

    The problem for Olbermann is that he is constantly casting stones and he lives in a glass house. It is just another example of Olbypocrisy. Recall how Keith went after Paul Wolfowitz over the fact that is HIGHLY QUALIFIED girlfriend had a job at the World Bank. In that case, the woman was already in the middle of her career, had a proven track record and did not get her job BECAUSE of her relationship with Wolfowitz.

    This is similar to how Keith went after Don Imus for "mistreating" female colleagues at MSNBC to the point of making one of them cry when Keith notoriously mistreated Suzy Kolber, his co-anchor on ESPN2, to the point where she admitted publicly to hiding in the bathroom at ESPN offices in Bristol and sobbing.

    This is the same Keith Olbermann who notoriously "stalking" Rebecca Lobo according to many different accounts including a story on which we referenced.

    This is the same Keith Olbermann who had porn star Mary Carey on his show then went on a date with her after the show and later left, as Carey described it in a radio interview some sort of creepy voice mail message about wanting to be with her.

    This is the same Keith Olbermann who has criticized politicians for invoking Nazi imagery in their public statements and then dons an Adolf Hitler mask and does a Nazi salute at the Television Critics Association conference.

    This is the same Keith Olbermann who criticizes the ethics of others in the news media business and then gives a check, on camera, to the spouse of a presidential candidate.

    Shall I continue?

    More to the point, as noted, Keith has a LONG history of trying to seduce women with promises of how he can help them in their career. Katy Tur is just the latest in a long line of young women that Keith has brought to the Olbermann casting couch. The hypocrisy of Olbermann criticizing Bill O'Reilly over the Andrea Mackris case is rich considering that Olbermann needed to buy a second apartment to store all the skeletons in his closets

    Well put, Bob. And I hope you're right about what you said in the comments for Friday's show; that we're approaching the end of our five-year-long national nightmare and Keith will finally be gone from all things GE/NBC.

    When you spew crap like that, yooouuuuu might be an olbyloon!

    KO beats BOR in IQ with one frontal lobe tied behind his head.
    Stan | 05.27.08 - 12:14 am | #

    Wow, the 'newshounds' is a front for olbyloons. Who woulda thunk it....

    The number of comments in general for this thread, as well the number of unique posters is particularly reassuring to me.

    The last time this subject came up there was a plethora of shockingly puerile and needlessly derogatory comments about this young woman. Now, in what is a troll-free environment, I see little interest chum-for-sharks and MOST of the comments make an attempt at reasoned criticism without being creepily malevolent.

    This is proof to me that the majority conservatives here just don't have the stomach for this sort of thing, and that the feeding frenzy of the past was mostly initiated by trolling sockpuppets, strawman sockpuppets, etc.

    On the other hand, if I had posted this instead of Bob, Cecelia would declare open season on me and accuse me of numerous crimes and misdemeanors as a result. It's very amusing to me to see her go out of her way here to praise Bob for this post, neatly discounting the many times she's thumbed her nose at similar posts in the past. Thanks for the laugh, sweetie.

It's very amusing to me to see her go out of her way here to praise Bob for this post, neatly discounting the many times she's thumbed her nose at similar posts in the past. Thanks for the laugh, sweetie.

    Brandon, can you show me where I praised Bob for this blog?

    I am well aware that Cecelia is opposed to ANY posts about Katy Tur and especially any that are as obnoxious and offensive as this one. Even I was not comfortable posting it.

    But funny she didn't protest this one isn't it the way she vehemently protested similar items I'd posted in the past isn't it? The irony is very rich indeed.

    And while I'm here, there's one more thing I'd like to point out. Everything I predicted re Ms. Tur has turned out to be true. She's now very gainfully employed in the number one media market in the United States. Her prior experience on camera as a reporter? Zip. Zilch. Zero. And yes, Olbermann's agent is Ms. Tur's agent. How many young journalists gain a high-powered agent when they have zero prior experience? The answer is probably none.

    But oh how I was vilified by Cecelia for daring to suggest that Tur might be a gold digger for dating a man older than her own father. But now it's very clear Ms. Tur's relationship with Olbermann has helped her vault past others with far more experience (and on-camera ability) than Ms. Tur. And I get the last laugh--or more correctly, that would be Ms. Tur's viewers who must have cringed when Ms. Tur (squeaky voice and all) described a crane collapse where people died, "Exciting".

    I didn't comment on Tur being called a "slut", Brandon, because I told you in the past that I would drop that. There was no contradiction in going ahead and expressing my feelings of great joy by commenting over the fact that the current holiday weekend chum for sharks thread didn't bring out anything near the sort use your term ....vilification.... of a young woman that your's had. And that for no other reason than quilt by association.

    I remain convinced that our former trolls gave you all the spleen and smut that you craved in the original thread you posted. Oh, how you eat that stuff up!

    Since you bring this up, I'll once again point out where you are wrong. And I'll do that with great joy too.

    As one poster here said, nepotism is common in this industry. There is no doubt that Tur has benefited from the prominence of her love interest, as well as the prominence of her father. What does not follow is that this is the only reason she is with Olbermann. That she cares nothing for him other than what he can do for her.

    As much as you hate him and her by proxy, it's not logical to assume that he is anything other than her Great Orange Hope for mainstreaming liberalism in the same way that he is the great hope of dozens of other swooning female fans whom you've ridiculed and pursued around the web. It does not follow that his appeal to her is nothing but mercenary, rather than the fact that he is objectively not a bad looking man, intelligent, successful, with a sense of humor, and someone with whom she shares professional interests. Those are attributes many women find appealing in men of all ages.

    Has he helped her beyond what her talent, experience, and maturity would indicate-- yes. Do couples do that for each other, whether it's one helping the other through college, or one bringing more financial and social assets into the relationship than the other, or one partner lending greater emotional strength and stability to their love interest-- all can be answered affirmatively.

    Will she eventually have to step up to the plate professionally or find herself employers slowly easing her to the back burner, probably. That's generally the way such scenarios go.

    Again, it does not follow that this young woman cares nothing about Olbermann and is merely a "slut" , "whore', "skank" and all the smutty little names that get flung at her because he seems to care for her and has helped her.

    No, matter how much you love to roll around in that mire and call it a rose garden, it's still pig pen.

    And you are still very much the pig.
