    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    September 8, 2008
    Countdown: Monday Recappers Thread

    Bathtub Boy

    This is the recappers' comment thread for Countdown, September 8 2008.

    Welcome to You Write the Recap 2.0. This is a special thread for you to post your comments on the night's Hour of Spin. Note everything salient: smears, distortions, bias, lies, non-barking dogs...the works. Watch the first showing, the repeat, or view the videos at the Countdown website.

    We'll go through the comments, organize them, and the best will form the nucleus of our official OlbyWatch Recap. That will be posted separately, later tonight, for maximum visibility and impact. We'll toss in some observations of our own, but don't worry: you'll get full credit for your contributions, because we need your help documenting the shameless "journalism" of Krazy Legs Olbermann.

    What to watch for tonight: Remember that great moment in Olberjournalism? "Jesus, Joe, why don't you get a shovel!" But do you remember what Oralmann was so insistent about spouting to Joe? He had the results of the Gallup likely voters poll--not the tracking poll, but he "more sophisticated" full poll--and was spewing data about how McCain went down in that particular poll. Well, you know what happened in that poll today? Will Edward R Olbermann be citing the definitive, absolute accuracy of Gallup's likely voters on tonight's Hour of Spin? Place yer bets!

    Be an Olbermann Watch blogger--without all the muss and fuss! Comments are open: post your analysis of tonight's Hour of Spin here, and watch for your insights later tonight in the official OlbyWatch Recap.

    "I'm the breaking news guy" he spews
    Mister Olbermahn, we have some news
    It's duly noted
    You've been demoted
    David Gregory's in and you lose

    Olby has an interview with Barry tonight. He's original for a non-partisan, unbiased, right-down-the-middle political anchor. Wait...

    Speaking of prayers, FatAss: I prayed that NBC would kick you and The Drooler off the anchor desk during political coverage. God answered my prayers. I wonder what else I could pray for...hmmm.

    Wow! Olby's interview with Barry is a multi-part production! Why does that remind me of something else? What could it be?

    Let's all say a prayer for Olberdouche (the real one and the OlbyWatch troll).

    Dogs that didn't bark. Any poll out today. Any metion of a certain New York times artical.

    Five fair and balanced reporters, eh? Okay: Laura Ingle, Todd Connor, David Lee Miller, Rick Leventhal, Shannon Bream, and Catherine Herridge. That's actually six--four from the New York bureau and two from D.C.--but I think I made my point.
    Getting back on topic, I'll have a WPitW recap once it's up on the "Countdown" website.

    The segment, that is.

    Fox slams the ratings wars, creams all of the other networks.
    msnbc comes in last..............AGAIN.
    Gallop polls show McCain up by 7 over OsamaObama
    Slobbermann is reduced to an anchor position and wishes his feet were tied to a rope of an anchor.
    If you all wany a great laugh, go over to the KOS site and read some of the blogs there, you'll split your sides. They're melting down.
    McCain/Palin 2008-2112+

    I have a new nick name for Olbermann. Squealer from Animal Farm. Its also a great opportunity to photo shop an image of Olbermann as a pig.

    Looks like Richard Maddow had her eye mask on in makeup.

    Olberathiest passes the baton to Mister Madcow with a segway trashing God. No wonder no one watches (MS)NBC.

    By EdwardROlbermanAuthor Profile Page on September 8, 2008 8:37 PM

    and god I hope someday somebody kicks Fox and Friends , Klannity, Bildo, Hume, Cameron, and Megan Kelly off the air, I just dont get it you bitch about Olbermann and Mathews but look at Fox besides Hemmer and Shep name me 5 fair and balanced reporters on Fixed news, NBC has Brokaw, Williams,Gregory, Schuster, Scarborough, and they had the most and balanced newsman of our time in the late great Russert. what would all you inbreds do if Olbermann did get fired one day, who would you bitch about. The way Brian Williams does his hair. You are all so insecure about how unbalanced fixed news do pick on the little guy so far down in the ratings, why because it makes you feel tough.>>>>

    LOL...and you think everyone else here is the insecure one. Talk about projection. Sheeezzz, man. LMAO

    Richard thinking it wasn't too smart to put pugilist Pat on her first show.

    Feels "slapped in the face" by the respect and deference comment by Davis.

    Pat slapping more liberally.

    Heck, Pat Man, you were sorely missed by one and all.

    I just wish you would have let someone know that what you were doing was supposed to be debating.

    Just like Low Blow KO's pattycake Obama Rama Ding Dong was supposed to be hard hitting journalistic probing of a presedential candidate instead of the Barakery Hackery in the Tanqueray Daiquiri head first rectal probing of the annointed, self appointed Chosen One.

    Olbermann interviews Obama by checking off each talking point and giving Obama about 3 or more uninterrupted minutes to give his speech, uh, answer.

    In the Media Matters Minute, Keith Oralmann proved yet again why we call him Rip 'n Read. Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann dished out O'Reilly Attack #508, falling in line with Cynthia Tucker of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (coming to her aide in the process) and Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show," all of whom had the blue blog source for which this segment is named: Media Matters. We'll get to the attack momentarily. First, came two other unfortunate victims.
    Worse was Fox NFL color analyst Brian Baldinger. Yes, Chicken and Waffles is now attacking his "Football Night in America" competition. Why? Well, while complimenting Michael Strahan (on the pregame show, I assume), he made a reference to Sarah Palin. Horrors of horrors! Snarky comeback time: "I thought it was some other idiot on some other network who was going to bring the Presidential race where it didn't belong..." Yes, Fat Ass, that makes up for Russell Brand at last night's MTV Video Music Awards. That's such a valid comparison. (I can be snarky and sarcastic, too.) With a curled lip and sneer, he finished his sentence: "...on to the *football* broadcasts." Now, comes the papers in hand: "Actually, this one is a twofer. Michael Strahan is no Dan Patrick." Strahan is an in-studio analyst; Patrick narrates highlights. So, obviously he "is no Dan Patrick," but that doesn't diminish him. And, of course, Michael Strahan is a Super Bowl champion, and he has the ring to prove it. I digress.
    Worser was Chris Wallace. Fixed News! [ding!] "Be careful with those sweeping declarative statements, Chrissy!" Also, "Wally"! Dumb guy voice for Wallace; mock voice for McCain as Keithy plays Gotcha!, quoting a "Meet the Press" appearance in early 2007. "So, Chris, Senator McCain was doubting about the surge before he was for it, before he took credit for it. Those Talking Points [ding!] don't come with footnotes, do they?" We could ask the same of Olbermoronn.
    Worst was the aforementioned O'Reilly Attack #508. Rip 'n Read joined the far-left chorus of calling Mr. Bill a hypocrite because he was not critical of Gov. Sarah Palin's 17-year-old daughter's pregnancy, but *was* of the Spears parents when Jamie Lynn was pregnant. Again, with sarcasm, that's such a valid comparison. Last Tuesday's Talking Points Memo that Brock and Co. distorted can be found here *undistorted*:
    Billo the Clown! [ding!] "The pattern has now emerged: criticize him in a newspaper, and he'll send out..." He went on to attack Jesse Watters and Porter Berry. Stalker producers! [ding!] "Latest victim: Pulitzer Prize winning Cynthia Tucker of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. She had the nerve to remind her readers that on the occasion of previous teen pregnancy in the news, Billo [ding!] followed the Talking Points [ding!]. Just as comedian [ding!] Rush Limbaugh immediately announced of the bun in the Jamie Lynn Spears oven. Quote [ding!]..." Yes, the ol' Ted Baxter voice made its return, quoting what Media Matters put out: video of a December Pinheads and Patriots segment in which the Spears parents were the Pinheads for the night. Harry Reasoner would be so proud of Edward R. Olbermann trotting that out attack after attack. "17-year-old daughter of a political figure gets pregnant, announces she's gonna marry the father, *out of bounds* as a story for analysis, something with which I entirely concur." Is he kidding? "*But*!...16-year-old television actress gets pregnant, announces *she's* gonna marry the father, a field day for naked, flabby hypocrites like...Billo the Clown [ding!] Today's...I'm sorry about the naked and flabby part..." Too late. " the Worrrrrlduh!"

    Keith may also have been referring to what all of us have been saying about him at his "Football Night in America" gig, rather than Russell Brand at the VMAs, which I thankfully didn't watch. "Fox & Friends" talked about it. Maybe he was even referring to Bob Raissman's column in Saturday's New York Daily News.

    So, now he's using his stupid show to attack his competitors on the sports side? Jeez, the world certainly revolves around you, Keith.

    I have no idea how they fit his ego into 30 Rock. Maybe that's why they had to leave the studios in NJ: his ego wouldn't fit through the door?
