"COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)
Host: Keith Olbermann
Keith Olbermann barked the opening spiel: Obama ahead! 527s! Democrats cave on FISA! McClellan speaks! Lamar Smith (R) "sold out his country"! Rupert Murdoch attack! Oooh, a John Cusack interview! Maybe next week he'll get Brad Pitt! It's casual Friday on Olbermann Watch.
#5: Newsweek shows Obama up by 15. But what about all those other polls? Who cares, the only important one is the one that shows Obama up by 15. Obama still won't take public financing. There may not be any Republican 527s, but Oralmann said that doesn't mean there won't be any tomorrow. So there. Keith pimped out Lefty Alter who gave all the reasons why Obama will beat McCain.
What better opportunity to discuss all the Republican "smears" that might come, unless they don't. Olby pimped out Kofinis, John Edwards's guy, and of course a (D), which reminds us that it's always useful to check out The List. It was pure Democratic propaganda, but that's hardly worth noting since the entire Hour of Spin falls into that category. CK was, of course, Great Thanksed.
#4: Oh no, there was a FISA compromise. Keith pimped out his favorite felon, but hilariously as the criminal talked, several other people in the newsroom were yelling back and forth at each other. Since the legal opinion of a disbarred lawyer isn't worth squat, that's how much attention we'll pay to it.
After a promo for a smear of Chris Wallace and a Fox Noise [Ding!] came #3: Scott McClellan repeats what he said in his book and in over a dozen interviews. Oralmann pimped out Milbank to talk impeachment. We admit it, we skimmed through much of this. There's only so much of Fat Ass and his prissy pal one can take on a casual Friday.
#2: Plug for #1. #1: John Cusack attacks John McCain. In the Media Matters Minute, Bear turned his sights on John Bolton (Blue Blog Source: HuffPo), Chris Wallace--Fixed News! [Ding!]--and worst the NY Post again. All of a sudden Keithy decided to use total viewers instead of the 'key demo' to claim the Post writer's figure of 300,000 viewers was wrong. Of course, Olby added up several showings of total viewers to come up with a number. Since he regularly is beaten like a rug in total viewers by O'Reilly, you can count on the fact that he will never mention total viewers again.
As for the Chris Wallace bit, Herr Olbermann attempted to refute Chris Wallace, based on this report:
[Wallace] distanced himself from right-wing Fox shows hosted by Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity by calling them "opinion shows," and said that, unlike MSNBC's "fiery liberal, Keith Olbermann," O'Reilly and Hannity are never permitted to anchor newscasts.
Bear had said repeatedly that Wallace was talking about "election night". Obviously an Olbermann Lie. Then he added:
Of course Fox permits them to anchor newscasts. They let O'Reilly anchor on primary nights. They let Hannity & Colmes anchor on primary nights.
Why can't Keith Olbermann tell the truth? O'Reilly never anchored primary coverage. Neither did H&C. O'Reilly's program was aired on two of the primary nights, and it was separate from "America's Election HQ": the election returns broadcast.
So what does all this mean? Keith Olbermann just lied again.
If it's Friday, it's our weekly assessment of Krazy Keith's masculinity. This week, Monkeymann attacked Fox and other broadcasters 29 times. Olby's source (Hillary Clinton's Media Matters) criticized (MS)NBC 12 times, but Keithy protected his corporate masters with zero criticisms. That makes this week's Olbermann Manhood Quotient: -82 [clay aiken limp].
And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 774th day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will in fact be indicted".
