    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    September 18, 2008
    Countdown: Thursday Recappers Thread

    Bathtub Boy

    This is the recappers' comment thread for Countdown, September 18 2008.

    Welcome to You Write the Recap 2.0. This is a special thread for you to post your comments on tonight's Hour of Spin. Note everything salient: smears, distortions, bias, lies, the works. If Keithy holds to form, he will again lift at least one lie from a blue blog and use it to smear Palin, so keep an eye out for that. 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.

    9:30 and no comments? Its sounds like nobody can take the liar/fraud/racist/tax cheat anymore. Without OW readers, KO is gonna lose a third of his audience.

    LOL Mich you're probably right - his ratings will tank even more now.

    Speaking for myself he nauseates the hell out of me. I really do try to watch so I can give my opinion but my wife keeps wanting to call 911.

    Maybe if J$ and Robert could assign 1 day to me and others I think I could do it. Or maybe assign the 1st 15 minutes and so on for a particular day.

    How this guy gets 1 million viewers says allot about our country.


    I just wasted a half hour recapping WPitW only to click Submit, be told I need go back and sign in...AND MY RECAP WHICH IS GONE! I have no energy left to recap it again. Tough luck.

    Olbermann hypocrisy alert.
    "Fox News lobs soft balls a Sarah Palin"

    Does Olby really want to get into who lobs softballs at guest? Do we need to pull clips of Olbermann and his blue dress interview with Obama?

    No don't pull the clips. His nose is still brown from that one and he can't wash it off.

    My recap, which I should have saved in MS Word or Notepad or something, is gone. That's what I meant to say.
    I just erased my DVR recording of that segment. I'll try to recap to memory:
    In the Media Matters Minute, O'Reilly Attack #512. Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann's "glorious" Blue Blog Source was Slate. Billo the Clown [Ding!] "Billo's [Ding!] claims about the number of times he's said shut up on TV." The "claims" varied depending on the interviews Bill has done over the years. The Ted Baxter voice was used when quoting what Slate said BOR said in interviews, including "six times in 12 years" in this week's Time magazine. Here's the full quote:
    >I've said "shut up" six times in 12 years, and they all deserved it. They were either bloviating, filibustering or lying.
    Most of the times listed, and read on the gotcha paper, were in jest about a non-guest to a neutral guest, in passing about a non-guest to a neutral guest, or in the Talking Points Memo. Jeremy Glick! Dave Kopel of the Rocky Mountain News was listed, but he was filibustering and deserved it:
    Worser was the Virginia Republican Party for some event they're having. George Allen! Macaca! [Ding!]
    Worst was Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, Hillary supporter now backing McCain. Oh, God, no! Obamamann basically labeled her a hypocrite for calling the people Obama referred to as "bitter" as "rednecks." Also, for calling Obama an elitest while she is married to royalty on a "3,200 acre estate ascot in Buckhamshire north of London!"
    There. I hope I remembered what I originally wrote correctly.

    Correction: "depending on the interviews Bill has done with other media outlets or publications over the years."

    Story #1 "Fox Lobs Pailin Softballs"

    Olbermann mocks the "Fixed News" ::ding:: interview of Sarah Palin as 'softball' (that he complains about a softball inteview with a straight face is unreal and quite a feat).

    Then, out of nowhere, Olby injects a clip of someone on Fox saying the word 'tits' (in an interview about Palin) for no apparant reason other than Keith being a perv.

    Olby then plays a hacked up clip of the Palin interview... and cracks jokes that aren't funny.

    i have nothing intelligent to contribute tonight... I do however think KO is absolutely disgusting. I have never seen a more self-righteous person in my life.

    Can we see more sped up clips of Keith in the future? I can handle sped up audio.

    Correction: "Buckinghamshire".

    Story # 4 "Where in the world is Spain?"

    Kiethy claims that McCain is confused multiple times and mixing everthing up during an interview on the Radio... he then plays a clip to demonstrate how out of it McCain is - except the clip doesn't demonstrate that at all (Olbyloons fall for this kind of stuff?).

    Guest Steve Clemons - says McCain had a "Sarah Pailin moment" (bonus Plain smear in a McCain segment) in that he wasn't ready to talk about Spain. Olby screams "McCain flip flop" "lockstep with Bush"! Steve says that this McCain non-screw-up is much worse than just being in "lockstep with Bush". Ooooooh, you know Olby was happy!

    Story # 5 "McCain over exceeds authority, already"

    In attacking McCain, it's becoming standard practice on Olbyplanet to first attack Sarah Palin... tonight is no different, in a speech Palin says "Palin and McCain"... and that slip of the tongue earns Fat Asses wrath.

    With the Palin smear out of the way... Olby jumps on McCain for saying he would fire the head of the SEC. Olby says a President can't just fire the head of the SEC - er, unless it's for cause Which means that McCain *could* actually fire the head of the SEC. Keating Five ::ding:: reference.

    Guest Howie Fineman nods and smirks at Oblytard's "sage" remarks... more Palin sexist smears... she's agressive and "wants to be the star of the show". Howard says he *agrees* with Keith's troopergate analysis (that's right, another Palin smear discussed) - so, you KNOW he was "Great thanksed!"

    Story #4.5 - "McCain fast changing rhetoric"

    Keify bellows McCain "flip flops"! Chris Kofinis (the adulterer Edward's campaign 'strategist') hammers home on dem talking points - McCain will be 4 more years of the evil Boooooosh! zzz-zzzzz-zzzzzz Campaign Waterloo... campaign is a strategic free-for-all... it's tone deaf. zzzz-zzzz-zzzzz McCain has no core convictions... zzz-zz-zzzzzzzz.

    Olby brings up Palin and Troopergate *a-gain* - and of course they all agree that it's bad for (can you guess?) the McCain campaign.

    Question for all:

    Why would someone use 62 seconds of quick edits, repetitive phrases, quite possibly repeating the same clip numerous times and smirky ridicule rather than actually showing a full clip of a "softball" question and the answer?

    Interesting comment from a lawyer affiliated with the Weekly Standard magazine regarding whether McCain *could* fire the SEC Chairman...

    "Contributor Adam White, an attorney, writes in explaining that McCain's critics are completely wrong:

    It's true that the SEC is an "independent agency," and that the statute creating the SEC (specifically, Section 4 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) doesn't expressly state that the president can fire SEC commissioners.

    But the law on this point is well settled: As the D.C. Circuit reiterated as recently as last month, in Free Enterprise Fund v. Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, 537 F.3d 667, 668-69 (D.C. Cir. 2008), "[m]embers of the Commission, in turn, are appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate and subject to removal by the President for cause; its chairman is selected by and serves at the pleasure of the President."

    The courts have never said that Congress can completely prevent a president from firing officials of an independent agency. At best, Congress can limit the president to firing such officials only "for cause," and the term "for cause" is generally interpreted pretty broadly."

    Fat Ass lies again!!!
