We've seen Keith Olbermann ridiculed in the pages of the normally friendly GQ. And then there was all that distinctly negative coverage in HuffPo, first from Rachel Slkar and then from the editors who gave stories from the NY Post prominent play. Now the infamous, deplorable one's blue base is buckling even further.
When Glenn Greenwald calls out Oralmann for hypocrisy, you know times are tough on OlbyPlanet:
Now that Barack Obama supports a law that does the same thing -- and now that Obama justifies that support by claiming that this bill is necessary to keep us Safe from the Terrorists -- everything has changed. Last night, Olbermann invited Newsweek's Jonathan Alter onto his show to discuss Obama's support for the FISA and telecom amnesty bill (video of the segment is here). There wasn't a syllable uttered about "immunizing corporate criminals" or "textbook examples of Fascism" or the Third Reich....
Obviously, Jonathan Alter has no idea what he's saying, but nonetheless decrees that this bill -- now that Obama supports it -- restores the Fourth Amendment. Those are the Orwellian lengths to which people like Olbermann and Alter are apparently willing to go in order to offer their blind devotion to Barack Obama....
Olbermann mocks Congressional Democrats as being weak and complicit for failing to stand up to Bush lawbreaking; now that Obama does it, it's proof that Obama won't "cower." Grave warning on Olbermann's show that telecom amnesty and FISA revisions were hallmarks of Bush Fascism instantaneously transformed into a celebration that Obama, by supporting the same things, was leading a courageous, centrist crusade in defense of our Constitution.
There's more. Much more. Read the whole thing and ask yourself: which prominent leftist writer will be the next to throw Herr Olbermahn under the bus? [Ding!]
