    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    September 15, 2008
    Countdown: Monday Recappers Thread

    Bathtub Boy

    This is the recappers' comment thread for Countdown, September 15 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 need your help documenting the shameless "journalism" of Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann.

    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.

    J$, is there a problem at your site or it me?

    what kind of problem???

    I watched Olbermann on and off for a while tonight. He is such an angry man. Why are liberals always such angry people?

    Johnny, I was going to try to do a recap of WPiTW.

    I'm sorry. I know its selfish of me but I just can't stand the man of a thousand sneering scowls, accents and lies.

    Besides I think it is best left to the young ones who have more time left then I do and should theoretically not mind squandering some of it.

    I am sure that Charlie rangel will be a sleeping dog tonight.

    I get a message in the bottom left side of the bottom bar saying "waiting for haloscan, which never comes. When I try to close the thread it says "Firefox not responding"

    It started last night.

    Sounds like a haloscan problem. I just checked it out and it seems to be working OK for me.

    Now back to the purpose of this thread: let's hear from the recappers!!

    "I think Governor Palin should go on all the major talk shows, I think she should go on your show (Bill O'Reilly), not that LUNITIC on MSNBC, but all the MAJOR talk shows." Newt Gingrich

    I wonder who Newt could be talking about?

    In the Media Matters Minute, we had Sean, we had Bill, we had Rupe. Since we had Bill, that meant O'Reilly Attack #510, which sort of seeped into the Worst nod. So, we'll knock these down in order.
    Worse was Sean Hannity for criticism of Obama. Fixed News! [ding!] Future combat systems! McCain attack.
    Worse was Attack #510. Billo the Clown! [ding!] Cindy Adams was attacked, too, for writing a positive piece in the New York Post about Bill's new memoir "A Bold, Fresh Piece of Humanity." Or as Sister Mary Lurana put it some 50 years ago, "William! You are a *bold,* fresh piece of humanity!" On OlbyPlanet, KeithO the Klown besmirched the title. How would Sister Mary feel? "His mantra," Keithy scoffed. Bill "reads Republican Talking Points [ding!] for a living." Hypocrite! He "exposes" himself as such "every 12 minutes." "So, succeeding in your career is out." Bill's critics "make millions off criticizing you." So, "humiliating your critics is out, too. (fake hesitation): Better life?"
    Worst was Mr. Murdoch. The down under pirate voice was used, featuring the guttural (or guttersnipural) "Arr." What Olbsessor quoted made another Mike C. prediction come true. Thursday at Inside Cable News, I left the following comment:
    "This is WPitW fodder. I know it." The fodder was Rupert saying "it’s okay for [Keith] to criticize Bill. *And Bill shouldn’t be so sensitive. He should ignore that.*" The thing is BOR *has* ignored Man on Fan. The only time I heard his name uttered was when Bill quoted a column from former NBC military analyst Col. Ken Allard (in the wake of Bill Arkin's "mercenary--oops, sorry, volunteer--force" line), botching the pronunciation. Where do you think we get "Olbermahn" from? O'Reilly has instead focused on the media corruption at (MS)NBC, and gone after their parent company, GE. Isn't that better than getting into a feud with Krazy Keith?
    Back on OlbyPlanet, Fat Ass feigned shock and pleasure in Rupert suggesting BOR should ignore his Olbsessed fan and not be sensitive, cheap shotting Murdoch at the same time by saying "you've ruined one country and you're trying to ruin another country." OlbyLie: "I gave you value for money launching Fox Sports Net..." Keith joined what is now FSN in 1999, one year after various regional sports channels merged to become Fox Sports Net. "You're telling O'Reilly to ignore my bait? The bait that the poor dumb fish takes every time?" Within seconds, Another Olbermann Lie! As I said above, Bill has not taken the bait. Maybe he did a few years ago, but no longer. Pretending to choke up, Edward R. Olbermoronn finished: "And...and you call yourself a businessman?!" What can you say after that? Unbelievable.

    yeah joemorgan...nothing wrong with a liberal at all...sometimes i side with them on occassion. my beef is with the douchebag libs that won't listen to you try to explain to them, or the ones that sneer at you when you think they might have things wrong. douchebags. and KO happens to be their leader and probably one of the worst liberals ive ever seen. STOP THE LIES KEITH!!!! also i sort of agree....palin will look silly every time she interviews b/c she's never done it before...but she's gotta learn sometime....and with each one she'll get better b/c she's a good talker unlike tele-obama-prompter in interviews.

    You're not a Newshounds guy, joemorgan, are you? If so, Patrick was right: another person *was* sent here in his place.

    Since you're a level-headed liberal as opposed to a far-left person, never mind. It's not important. Welcome aboard.
    By the way, I'm a center right moderate.

    There is dramatic irony in Keith "Orange-Glo" Olbermann criticizing Palin's use of a tanning bed.

    More dogs that did not bark tonight.
    Obamanation's favorite community organizing group is in hot water again in Cleveland and Detroit for registering more non-existent voters.

    Here is an ACORN of knowledge for you liberals supporting Obamanation. He is nothing but a King Daily creation.

    Story #4 Liar, Liar, Campaign on Fire
    Even Fixed News (ding!) and Karl Rooooove are calling out the McCain campaign for lying (shockingly no lies listed by Olby – just a jump to an uber-lame Biden joke “McCain is Bush 44”). Keithy plays an Obama campaign commercial (I know I know, the whole show is an Obama commercial). Chris Kofinis (again?) – “McCain’s a liar – McCain will backpedal – McCain's losing credibility – McCain’s dirty tactics – this is good for the democrats – McCain's campaign is in a dangerous spiral".

    Hmmm… I wonder what the latest electoral college polling numbers show? Which brings us to…

    Story # 3 Interpreting the Palin Bounce
    Olby snidely dumps on a McCain/Palin crowd estimate from the McCain campaign before giving his acolytes the bad news… the Electoral College move towards ::gasp:: McCain (the “Palin Bump” – the “Palin Effect”).

    Keith’s s slovenly political hack questions to Chucky Todd–
    > Is there a shelf life on these numbers? (Keith is begging)
    > Would continued bad economic news tip the balance back to Obama? (Keith is hoping)

    Story #1 – Is Palin Bush 44?
    Palin is flavor of the month… Shockingly, Keith spews negative Palin stories from the NYT (thin gruel). Keith notes Palin’s conducted improper campaign business (probably just trying to be fair for all those Obama/Rezko and Obama “I paid off my wife’s employer with pork" stories he’s done). And, shockingly Palin’s enemies have back things to say about her. Howie and Keith yuk it up about those crazy Alaskans. Keith thinks it’a a VP disqualifier to own a tanning bed.

    He is in meltdown mode, along with the rest of the dems. I hope that its ok to post this here, too amusing not to:
    from DU

    You know who you are. You are LYING to US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You dirty, corrupt SOBs! Updated at 10:59 AM

    How can Obama raise 66 million dollars in August, gain another 500,000 donors and have over 80 thousand people show up at his Denver speech and be tied with a corrupt politician who can't even get 5000 people to hear him speak, who can't raise money on his own and has to lie about the crowd sizes to create perception that he's doing well enough to be considered a presidential hopeful?

    80 percent of this country believes that this country is going in the wrong direction and I'm supposed to believe that McCain who votes with Bush 90 percent of the times is tied with Obama?

    COME ON!

    All indications are that Dems will gain more seats in the House and the Senate giving the Dems an overwhelming majority to push their agenda but Obama who is a popular Democrat who can get disaffected Republicans and Independents to vote for the Democratic ticket may not get to the white house because he's tied with a Republican who was responsible for enabling Bush?

    COME ON!

    The Democrats have registered 11,000,000 more Democrats than the Republicans and I'm supposed to believe that Obama and McCain are tied?

    COME ON!

    McCain picks a woman to be his running mate (for political reasons) who has absolutely no foreign policy experience (a credential he ripped Obama for), who is as corrupt as he is and is just a heartbeat away from the presidency and he and Obama are tied?

    COME ON!

    All together!

    Chuck Todd is LYING!
    CNN is LYING!
    ABC is LYING!
    CBS is LYING!
    Wallstreet Journal is LYING!
    USA Today is LYING!

    And the polls...?


    THERE IS NO TIE! This is a fabrication. This is an illusion. This is a fairytale.

    The Media and the Polls they road in on are FULL of SHIT! They want you to believe the illogical. It's a LIE. How can they get away with THIS LIE?

    Obama and McCain are NOT TIED! Good commonsense defies the logic of the polls. The media who sponsors these polls is holding these polls up as a way of pushing their own agenda. People should do one thing consistently. Write or call the media outlets to tell them that you aren't gullible, that you know that they are trying to sway opinion and possibly the election.

    Grrrr... "back things" should be "bad things" at the end of my previous post.

    Countdown is a moonbat parade
    One hour of endless tirade
    No rebut from the right
    Because Olby can't fight
    And his "news show" is a charade

    Herbert Hoover (5 mentions "the antichrist of economics") is the name of the day, along with (so far 5 mentions) of 'nation of whiners,' or 'whiners', Phil Gramm. Gramm also gets blamed by Enron advisor Paul Krugman for all the problems in the economy. Phil Gramm may be just the man to do it: "another great depression."

    Gene Robinson and Obly agree that if the election is a referendum is on the economy the lefties look better. Biden is "revivified" by his attacks today. They did put his suit jacket back on, no doubt to remind him to act like an adult.

    Sarah Palin, "Tammany Hall with a Tanning Bed", I kind of like that one.

    Karl Rove is a popular giggling point with Keef. "Calling out McCain for LYING." plays a commercial with vile, disastrous, " deception is all he has left. "

    Chris Kofinis, McCain campaign suffers from farmhouse thinking. "if you come up with stinking lies, lies, lies, lies, et. al. "death spiral" due to (LIES). did he mention that McCain campaign has no credibility? Natch, they lie.

    "Bushed" features a lawn sign with exploding Twin Towers by some 527 type group (i.e. not very professional looking), Keef uses this to remind us that Republicans were in charge then (he doesn't say for 9 months after an 8 year administration) and repeats the charge that McCain sez he knows how to get those responsible but will only share it with us if he is elected. "He's going to need a new AD!" Smirk, quick cut.

    Chuck Todd on with Dumbo losing electoral votes. But the "new economy" story will wipe out the Palin bounce (they hope). If the economy goes in Obama's direction (i.e., tanks) then rust belt goes to Dumbo and the lefties prevail.

    They keep talking about the "fundamentals" quote but I missed the memo on 'dat one.

    McCain in the membrane, Obama did not call Sarah Palin a pig. "The McCain phony outrage level is orange." fake look of outrage. quick cut.

    I leave WPITW for the vets, I can't follow the accents. Not a little irony with mocking BOR for "reading Republican talking points on the air." Obviously Keef is up on him as he is the writer of the Dim talking points, not merely a reader.

    Tanning bed gets 5 mentions tonite. She hires her "crony friends", uses private email accounts to do business, and fires people. Kisses Tina Fey's butt. putting a lot of hope and dreams that the Tina Fey bit will hurt the Gov Sarah.

    Howard Fineman "huffing and puffing by Obama camp followers" heh. sez a lot of people have tanning bed cuz it's dark up there. She paid for it Keith admits.

    non-barking dog:

    Dumbo accused of talking to Iraqis to slow down the troop movement home.

    Troopergate run by Obama bootlickers (she has something to hide if she doesn't talk to Obama's people).

    No. Patrick Heckman used two monikers during his tenure here: howard hughes and EdwardROlberman. He stooped to personal attacks, name calling, and obscenites in nearly every comment.

    To hear Keith Olbermann comment on the latest electoral college numbers and the not so subtle glee with witch they "reported" that the Lehman brothers bankruptcy was still too soon to muffle the "Palin Bomb".

    Olbermann seems to have no problem celebrating the pain suffered by the hundreds of people who lost their jobs today, on the chance it might help his horse in this election.

    Completely shameless.

    don't get me started on ann coulter...i agree that sean hannity is a lot like keith olbermann. both are very partisan, and i really think thats the only similarity... keith every night will say a lot of lies, and so does hannity, but hannity will usually have colmes to call him out or even another liberal guest. on his radio show maybe not so much, but thats not primetime tv that millions of people see and can interpret as real news. also, hannity doesn't use hate speech, at least not as outrageous and out in the open as KO. hannity will also cover some news when its not good for the republicans, whereas on KO he won't mention it or he'll come up with some ridiculous defense...great news program that doesn't give you the news...i hope im not coming off aggressive, KO just disgusts me as a journalist... i dont really like anyone who spins the news, KO is just the biggest for Obama, I thought you were a repub and would have a laugh at that haha, but really i think he's a good guy, i'm just not for a lot of his policies and deep down i don't trust him due to his sketchy past and relations. and yeah everyone uses a teleprompter, but palins wasn't working when she gave her speech that was raved about. and maybe her interview was a little lame, but you have to admit, o'reilly wasn't trying to humiliate obama with his questions like gibson was. and the 'uhs' are really annoying.

    p.s. i'm not some hardcore conservative...i am pro-choice and a lot of other things, but mostly to the right
