"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
You know you are in the presence of political hackery when the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann returns to your screen. The CEO of the humbly-named Olbermann Broadcasting Empire bellowed the opening spiel: Obamarama! More McCain attacks! Fox attack! McClellan redux! Joe McCarthy! The two-day-old ambush video. Orally! [Ding!] Yeah, this is what passes for "news" on MSNBC, and it's a blue Monday at Olbermann Watch.
#5: The price of gas is up. Fawning over the Obama "economic tour". Big oil! [Ding!] Keithy pimped out his special friend Richard Wolffe, who simpered in bobblehead agreement. We'll sum it up for you: Obama's doing everything right, McCain' everything wrong.
On to the "slime machine". Fox Noise! [Ding!] Fox Noise! [Ding!].E.D. Hill is evil because she teased a segment with the fist bump: was it a fist-bump, a pound, a terrorist jab? Of course the segment went on to say it was just a friendly gesture, but Oralmann has to slime E.D. Hill to please his blue blog buffoons. It doesn't matter that Time magazine did the same thing: talked about different ways the gesture was being interpreted, including a terrorist-style jab, before explaining what it is. When Time does it it's OK. When Fox does it, it's eeeevil.
To pile on the attacks Fat Ass pimped out comedian Rachel Maddow, tonight playing a expert in non-verbal communications. Far-right! [Ding!] E.D. Hill is afraid of black people! They're gonna run ads against Obama and he has to get the Clintons to blow them out of the water! This has been a paid political announcement!!
#4: The graphic sez it all: McBush. It's the nightly attack segment. McCain is a liar! Lefty Alter was the designated Pinocchio, who say Republicans "do this" (attack the press, lie, whatever) "all the time".
After Fixed News! [Ding!] came #3: more McClellan! Graphic of Bush & Cheney: "They Lied". Olby cites the Senate Intelligence Committee, but of course people who actually practice journalism know better. Uh oh, Olby is trying to get McClellan to throw someone under the bus [Ding!] but Scottie is measuring his words. Neither one of course actually gives the quotes from the Senate report that the Post, linked above, does. Why do you suppose that is? Here's a hint: remember you are on OlbyPlanet. Rosetta Stone! [Ding!] Oralmann tried three times to concoct a conspiracy to lie, but McClellan refused to bite. Oh well, that's his last appearance on The Hour of Spin. He didn't even get Great Thanksed.
#2: a plug for #1: #1: Merkle's diseased obsession found him cackling over the O'Reilly producer ambush tape that was old news yesterday. But gee, his audience expects it, you know. In the Media Matters Minute, the victims were Brad Blakeman (Blue Blog Source: Daily Kos) and Cavuto (Blue Blog Source: newsliars). Fox Noise! [Ding!] Fixed News! [Ding!] Oralmann had no valid source for at least part of this one so it's possible this was another of his lies. We'll turn it over to the Olbermann Watch Research Division.
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 763rd day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will in fact be indicted".
