Keith Olbermann, a man who has blazed a misogynist trail of tears across the cable dial over the past 15 years, is now SHOCKED, SHOCKED to hear that Katie Couric had the temerity to speak her mind on the widely shared perception that members of the media engaged in persistent sexist attacks on the first serious female candidate for the presidency of the United States. Of course, Olbermann and his broadcast partners Chris Matthews and David Shuster are at the top of the list Couric is referencing but never mind that.
Olbermann bitch slapped Couric for her OUTBURST, naming her a WPITW while rising indignantly to "defend" the integrity of one Lee Cowan for his admitted struggle to remain objective in Obama's presence. Olbermann is now busy composing another symphonic special comment on the remark by McCain on the Today show that Obamamaniacs have been trying to "RFK" into meaning McCain doesn't care about the troops - even though Matt Lauer of NBC News went to great lengths to correct the record this morning and showed that the Obama attacks against McCain are blatantly deceitful. Keith was not so busy however that he could not take time to while away the afternoon reading diaries on Daily Kos - and defending himself in the comments section.
Setting aside the question why the brightest start in the NBC News galaxy would take the time to respond to a comment by a high school kid named "SteamPunkX on a diary by a know-nothing Kossack named "Obama Fellow" on a far-left blog like Daily Kos, Olbermann writes:
You've used Roger Stone to defend your position. (1+ / 0-) SteamPunkX nails it.
Had Hillary Clinton been Hal Clinton, 90% of the abuse you site [sp], from the Right (the infamous Stone was behind Citizens etc) would have taken some other form that had nothing to do with substance, only demographics or height or religion or anything else people can be unthinking knee-jerk reactionaries towards.
I do not deny sexist remarks slipped out. I was guilty of not being able to be sufficiently empathetic to understand the undertone that could be perceived (rightly or wrongly) in my own remark about "the room." That doesn't make me guilty of sexism and it doesn't mean Senator Clinton was more of a victim of sexism than Senator Obama was a victim of racism.
The point of this was Couric assuming a debatable point as a fact, and beating over the head with it, somebody who was entirely honest about covering Obama amid cheering throngs (and who never said or did anything the least bit sexist). It was an unconsceniable [sp] generalization.
I'd love to contribute more to this but I'm finishing up the McCain Comment and want to put up a preview diary of it while I can (sorry - is directing traffic to another diary a suspendable offense?).
You got that? Keith is not sexist because he did not think the things he said were sexist! That's good to know. I guess its OK then for someone to make racist comments if THEY don't think the things they says are racist. Same for anti-semites. In fact, Keith has given us a whole new standard for political correctness.
