    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    July 15, 2008
    Keith Olbermann's Tribute to Tony Snow

    Controversy now swirls over Keith Olbermann's written statement (he didn't bother to interrupt his vacation with Katy to actually appear on camera) of condolences over the death of Tony Snow:

    It might surprise many at all political points, but while we could not have disagreed more on policy, we were in frequent contact, even during his days as Press Secretary...

    Oralmann first claimed he was Mr Snow's special friend in March, contending they emailed each other about baseball. But friends of Tony Snow beg to differ, as Page Six reported today:
    The MSNBC blowhard...is now inventing a friendship with former White House Press Secretary Tony Snow.... But a true friend of Snow's says Olbermann had "no relationship with Tony, at all." In fact, Olbermann named Snow his "Worst Person in the World" on Jan. 9, 2007, accusing him of lying about President Bush's 2003 "mission accomplished" speech. Olbermann hissed, "You're just baldfaced lying. You were hired to lie . . . We're not all third-graders out here." A rep for Olbermann didn't get back to us.

    Indeed, as the Olbermann Watch archives show, Herr Olbermann has excoriated Tony Snow repeatedly and enthusiastically, with insults like "Snow Job", comparing him to paid pundit Armstrong Williams, calling Tony a liar, and at one point suggesting that Mr Snow accused the American people of fostering terrorism!

    Do you think that Keith, who didn't even bother to interrupt his time off, was really Tony Snow's best bud? Let his own words answer the question. Here, culled from the Olbermann Watch video vault, is Keith Olbermann's Tribute to Tony Snow:

    Note: See here for a compilation of genuine tributes to and reminiscences of Tony Snow.

    BRAVO !! You bet he is standing clear until after Mr. Snow's funeral. He was probably ordered by NBC news to take an extra week off.

    Whats that old saying.."with friends like these who needs enemies?"..New Murrow indeed.

    From Gawker-Stalker (where "regular" folks send in "sightings" of "celebs" in NYC:

    Keith Olbermann
    Lexington Ave & 86th St, Jul 8th, 2008 @ 8pm

    Last night, sat next to newsman/Bill O'Reilly nemesis Keith Olberman on the 4 train coming home from the Yankees game. He was gently disagreeing with a friend/9-11 conspiracy nut. He got off the 86th Street stop. Disheveled hair and a wild five o'clock shadow.

    http://gawker.com/stalker/?refId=1226097

    Maybe Olby can show us all those "friendly" Tony Snow emails on baseball. I'm sure they are filed right next to all those emails from his one-night fan, Karmabites.....teehee...

    That was another excellent video exposing Keith's Olbypocrisy.

    When it comes to Olbermann , Tony Snow said it best in the 'oft quoted: "You can fit all his friends in a phonebooth."

    Can you prove that Mr. Snow actually said that about KO, Observer Dan?

    My internet search trying to confirm that comment only revealed quotes from commenters like you on a couple of blogs like this one.

    That said, what do people on this blog find threatening about the fact that liberals are often friends with conservatives in the real world?

    Besides attending all the Yankees All-star game's festivities, I think 'ole Olby has been busy updating his own Wikipedia page...here are a few gems I think the folks at OW will enjoy:

    Salary $4,000,000
    Net worth $14.2mm (est.)

    (under the heading "Other television appearances" which also includes is Family Guy & Simpson spots):

    On June 13, 2008, Olbermann hosted the MSNBC's commercial-free special coverage to honor his colleague, Tim Russert (1950~2008). During that broadcast he visibly wept during the many segments.

    (under the heading "External Links"):
    Keith Olbermann's blog on The Daily Kos

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Olbermann

    ___________________
    Does ANYONE remember Olbermann "visibly" weeping during the Russert coverage? Please, post it on youTube if that was true. I watched most of it, and I do not remember him weeping, close to weeping....PLUS, has it EVER been CONFIRMED that Olbermann is making $4 mil a year? Just wondering.

    Hey Johnny, in the interest of being "fair and balanced", why didn't you balance your resurrection of KO's placement of Tony as WPITW with the clip of Olbermann placing HIMSELF as WPITW?

    Also Mr. "fair and balanced", since when does KO's claiming someone as an email friend imply that he was somehow calling Tony "his best bud"?

    Go-go, I while I wouldn't call it 'weeping', KO was obviously visibly shaken and upset during his coverage of Tim's death. And no, it was NOT an act.

    The Cleveland Leader has seemingly picked up this OW posting:

    Was Keith Olbermann Friends With Someone Who Was "The Worst Person in the World"?

    http://www.clevelandleader.com/node/5983

    _______________________
    Sorry, MikeH, I didn't buy his act. I gave a detailed account of his phoney greif a few weeks ago, under the Russert posting here. I don't have time to look and provide you a link, but there is plenty of evidence of Olbermann's extreme opportunitistic and shallow behavior....if he was soooo shaken, I'd like to see some youTube proof.

    > Hey Johnny, in the interest of being "fair and balanced", why didn't you balance your resurrection of KO's placement of Tony as WPITW with the clip of Olbermann placing HIMSELF as WPITW?

    1. I don't recall when Olbermann ever named himself "WORST" person. B. I don't recall when Olbermann ever called himself a liar, over and over. And III: Olbermann didn't just die. Those are some rather significant distinctions.

    > since when does KO's claiming someone as an email friend imply that he was somehow calling Tony "his best bud"?

    I never claimed he said 'best bud'. I merely asked a question, in the trademark leading Olbermann fashion. You should be familiar with the technique, since Oralmann uses it on every show.

    Attn: MikeH
    Hey Johnny, in the interest of being "fair and balanced", why didn't you balance your resurrection of KO's placement of Tony as WPITW with the clip of Olbermann placing HIMSELF as WPITW?

    Answer: because the difference in postings would be that Slobbermann point blank called Tony Snow a liar and mimicked tony's voice. As opposed to KO's wpitw of himself not stating the facts of himself as also being one of the BIGGEST LIARS on cable.
    Folks, I do believe KO's days are numbered.
    I think i'm going to start watching reruns of Raymond or Scrubs at the 8 oclock hour.

    Here is a reference to Tony Snow making the "phone booth" quote in an April 20, 2006 article from the notriously right-wing salon.com

    http://tinyurl.com/6res34

    p.s. it took me about 2 minutes to find

    "1. I don't recall when Olbermann ever named himself "WORST" person".,.....But he certainly did name himself A WORST person.

    "B. I don't recall when Olbermann ever called himself a liar, over and over".......And just how many television personalities do you know of who HAVE called themselves a liar ......"over and over"?

    "And III: Olbermann didn't just die"......And neither had Tony Snow when he was named WPITW or called a liar.

    "I never claimed he said 'best bud'. I merely asked a question, in the leading Olbermann fashion. You should be familiar with the technique, since Olbermann uses it on every show"........What I'm "familiar" with is you use of that very same red herring every time you are confronted with your own one sided bias......Your famous 'two wrongs must make a right' argument that I have been personally attacked for every time I've tried using it on this blog.

    Are you really serious mike? You are starting to sound like John Kerry ( I voted for it after I voted against it). What's the difference? And as for item B. you need to learn to read. In my statement, I said that KO DID NOT state his lying to everyone as opposed to him making the statement of Tony Snow being a liar. MikeH, your continued support of KO is unreal. KO is a discusting IDIOT. As for one sided bias, KO is tops in that department hands down.
    "And III: Olbermann didn't just die"......And neither had Tony Snow when he was named WPITW or called a liar. This statement contridicts KO and his friendship with Tony. Do you really think that Tony would have chummed up with Slobbermann after Slobbermann calls him a liar,mimmicks Tony's voice, talks ill of him in prior countdown shows, names Tony Worst Person in the World? I don't think so. You need to lay off the crack pipe dude and wise up. GOD BLESS TONY SNOW.

    MikeH. Stop making shit up. No one ever said that liberals and conseratives could never be friends. We said that no one could ever be Olbermann's friend. He is as vile as they come.

    MikeH. Stop making shit up. No one ever said that liberals and conseratives could never be friends. We said that no one could ever be Olbermann's friend. He is as vile as they come.

    Anyway...
    (Take the hint, guys.)

    Excellent post Johnny$. Once again you have shown what an ass clown Olbermann is. Olbermann should at least have the courage not to pretend to be friends with Tony Snow just because he has passed away. I don't even think the mindless zombies who watch Olbermann's show are dumb enough to believe that Olbermann and Snow were pen pals. Snow was a nice man but I doubt he would befriend a man who called him a liar and a fraud nightly.

    Mike H asks :
    Can you prove that Mr. Snow actually said that about KO, Observer Dan? I am paraphrasing what I actually heard Snow say when asked about Olbermann. " You could fit all his friends in a telephone booth". Snow was being asked about when they worked together, presumably at Fox Cable. I want to say it was John Gibson doing the interview, maybe Johnny Dollar can confirm that. That being said, I don't need any more proof than having heard the man say it.

    I just now see Sefton has posted the link. Cudos for undertaking the exhaustive search!

    Olby can pee on the legs of his fans, tell them that it's raining and they would believe him.

    Wow not only did Jimmy Legs name Snow WPITW after he "retired" (Keith just left it at that, without the reason for the retirement) he picked a picture of Tony Snow after he'd lost his hair from his chemo?

    Wow, just.......wow.

    You can disagree with someone and still be considered their friend. But if you notice on his WPITW clip, dickwad mimics Snow (just as he does with Duecy and Limbaugh before him, two people he clearly despises). This guy is a buffooon, a no talent hack.

    If you'll notice also the difference of how FOX and More Slanted News By Communists covered the deaths of Snow and Russert. MSLSD was "all Russert all day" for about three days after he passed away, while FOX gave him an enourmous amount of coverage, especially for a RIVAL newsperson. Meanwhile, when Snow died, "Meet the Press' had the friggin audacity to relegate his passing to the "Media Minute" portion of their show. And Dribbles didn't even give him a full segment on "Spitball".

    This example explains all there is to know about the difference between the liberal and conservative media. Nuff said!!!

    "This example explains all there is to know about the difference between the liberal and conservative media. Nuff said!!!"

    On the contrary.....it says all you need to know about the relative stature of Russart compared to Tony Snow. As classy a newsman as Snow was, he was not even close in stature to that of Russart, who was considered the king of the Washington media by almost everyone. No other media personality's sudden death and unexpected would have created that much coverage.

    BTW, as long as you cling to ridiculous phrases like "More Slanted News by Communists", it tells everyone just where you are coming from....and tends to substantially reduce your own credibility.

    Tony: "MikeH stop making things up. No one said that liberals and conservatives could never be friends. We said that no one could ever be Olbermann's friend. He is as vile as they come."

    How do you know?......From reading this blog?.......From watching his show?.......You know him personally?

    Tony: "He is as vile as they come."
