    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    September 16, 2008
    Countdown w/ Olbermann, Sept 16 2008: OlbyWatch Recap

    "COUNTDOWN WITH KEITH OLBERMANN" (8:00 P.M.-9:00 P.M. ET)

    Host: Keith "Czechoslovakia" Olbermann

    Topics:

    • McCAIN SMEAR DU JOUR
    • PALIN SMEAR DU JOUR
    • CHENEY SMEAR DU JOUR
    • PALIN SMEAR DU JOUR PART DEUX

    Guests:

    • Richard Wolffe, UK exchange student
    • Chris Hayes, far-left Nation scrivener and OlbyParrot
    • Barton Gellman, anti-Cheney smear author
    • Howie Fineman, pundit for all occasions
    • Rachel Madcow, failed Err America comedian

    Even Olbermann gets tired of repeating the same Palin smears night after night. So tonight Herr Olbermahn gave us something different: an entirely new Palin smear, and--like the others--a certified, notarized, documented Olbermann Lie. You saw it first on The Hour of Spin, and you'll see it exposed first right here at Olbermann Watch.

    youngjim:
    Olby crows that Palin's favorable/unfavorable ratings HAVE DROPPED 10 POINT IN 3 DAYS! Still she's still favorable 48 to 36 (down from 52 to 30). Palin lies (AGAIN) about the teleprompter(gate). Keef's sources saw the teleprompter AND IT WORKED FINE. And she quoted A MCARTHYITE ANTI-SEMITE! (Westbrook Pegler) Chris from the Nation shakes his head in amazed disgust. How can she continue to tell the teleprompter lie? Scandalous indeed. She won't work with the investigation of her in Alaska--she must have something to hide. The Palin bubble has burst!

    Cheney anti-biographer Martin Gelman quotes Dick Armey, Cheney bullshitted him by saying Iraq had suitcase nukes. Armey: if i had known I could have stopped [the war]. Cheney's fault? Bush's fault?

    Keefy huffing about Gov. Sarah "invoking" her special needs child. She sez she increased funds for special needs children, but keefy sez she cut the budget for the special olympics by half--"that's sick" Keefy hyperbolates.


    J$:
    And so we come to Edward R Olbermoronn's Lie of the Day. Why bother typing it out when you can watch it and see all his theatrical indignation and faux outrage as he spews his latest smear:

    She cut the Special Olympics Budget in half, and is campaigning as an advocate for special needs kids. That's pretty sick.

    Now we would humbly suggest that if someone cuts a budget in half, that would mean that Alaska would be spending half as much money as the year before. That is what "cutting a budget in half" means, no? Well that's what it means here on terra firma. It has a totally different meaning in that Bizarro World known as OlbyPlanet. Would it surprise you to learn that Sarah Palin did not reduce funding for the Special Olympics, but increased it? Well, no, it won't surprise the clear-headed readers of this site, because they are familiar with Bathtub Boy's "journalism": lift a story from a blue blog (in this case Think Propaganda), spew it on the air, and whatever you do, don't check the facts:

    While the Special Olympics did not want to make any comments about budget cuts, Channel 2 News looked into the governor's funding of the program.

    Records show Palin actually increased their funding by $25,000. However, that amount is only half of what the program asked for.

    "This governor from the very start has a very clear record of her support for children with special needs," said Palin's campaign spokesperson Meghan Stapleton. "Since taking office she has nearly tripled funding for those with special needs in the public school system."

    The Department of Education in Early Development says funding for special needs and intensive needs has gone up $73 million since Palin took office.

    Um, did you get that, Fat Ass? Sarah Palin increased the Special Olympics budget. She didn't "cut it in half". When someone asks for a big increase, and you give them a smaller increase, you didn't "cut the budget"--by half, or by any amount. You increased it, just not as much as was hoped for. Hey Merkle, are these heady mathematical abstractions too complex for you to follow? Oh, and Edward R, news isn't news because a blue blog says so. And "rip 'n' read" isn't journalism, except maybe on A-Mess-NBC.


    SeattleJohn:
    Story #3 - "Pulling back the curtain on Cheney" The Olby Book Club -- an interview with "Angler" author Barton Gelman. Keithy decries what a criminal Cheney was... according to fatass, Cheney was solely responsible for the Iraq war, was secretive, manipulative, and was tipping the historic balance of power to the president. The VP's crimes? Cheney had a conversation with a congressman... Cheney interpreted the separation of powers different than Olby did... a surveillance program was overseen by Cheney... and, when Cheney got selected as the VP nominee, he [gasp!] didn't have to fill out a VP questionnaire form! Gelman, it goes without saying, was "great Thanksed!"

    Story #1 "Surprise! McCain invented the Blackberry"

    Olby decries that Al Gore was smeared with the line that he "invented the Internet". Then, Fat Ass pushes the smear that McCain claimed to have invented the Blackberry. The incriminating audio that Keith played, interestingly enough, never actually makes this claim (the McCain backer being recorded was discussing McCain's support for the telecommunications industry - which *did* set the stage for devices like the Blackberry)... but, Orangeman never lets contradicting audio get in the way of a good lie. Rachael Maddow, tonight playing a telecommunications expert, opined on the impending death of the McCain campaign due to McCain's "Blackberry lie". Obly tells a bizarre story about when he was a sportscaster and Rudy Guiliani made a joke about the weather. Maddow obviously then has to link Sarah Palin in to this story. Obly cracks-wise about Mcain inventing the wheel too! Yuks all around on Olby-planet.


    rick:
    According to Olbermann, we can no longer make fun of Algore for inventing the Internet although Algore, himself, not a low-surrogate, said, "During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country's economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system."

    Now, the Tax Cheat informs us, McCain is henceforth to be known as "the inventor of the Blackberry" because someone from his campaign said the following:"Telecommunications of the United States is a premier innovation in the past 15 years, comes right through the Commerce committee...So you're looking at the miracle John McCain helped create and that's what he did."

    This is so lame. Fat Ass isn't even trying anymore. It's sad really.


    Cecelia:
    I suppose Olbermann feels that Sara Palin shouldn't be spending the vast vast fortune it takes to buy her very own tanning bed. Who does she think she is-- Marie Antoinette? Imelda Marcos? Keith thinks Gov. Palin should do the egalitarian thing and have herself spray painted orange by little Oompa Loompa minions as he does.


    MikeC:
    The Media Matters Minute was News Corp-less. That's the good news. The bad news is the following:

    Worse was G. Gordon Liddy for daring to criticize Obama. "Soon to celebrate 78 years of living on his own personal plane of consciousness." Why does Keith hate old people? Talking Point! [Ding!] Olby tried a bad Liddy impression. Obama really was born in this country, though. The eeevil O'Reilly has the birth certificate to prove it, as he said in his viewer e-mail segment tonight. On OlbyPlanet, KeithO the Klown did the same thing, but with that snark and sarcasm his bosses go ga-ga over. "The whacko site WorldNetDaily..." Watergate! [Ding!]

    Worser was Eddie Burke, host of "The Eddie Burke Show" on Smart Radio AM 700 KBYR, an *Anchorage* Fox News Radio affiliate. Burke told off two female protesters at some anti-Sarah Palin protest, gave out their cell number, told listeners to abuse them, and the two got death threats. He was suspended for a week. Not good enough for Man on Fan who just had to work in Bill O'Reilly and Rush Limbaugh (who are nothing alike). "Mr. Burke, he got a paltry one-week suspension, and no doubt, consideration to fill in someday for comedian [Ding!] Rush Limbaugh or Billo [Ding!] or some other of radio's inducers to violence."

    Worst was Kevin D. Williamson of National Review Online for having the gumption to post a reader's criticism of Olbermoronn for last night's Palin tanning bed attacks...uh, I mean reportage. Keith read the full "quote [[Ding!]" from the reader with a condescensing tone. Fat Ass scoffed at the diagnosis the reader put forth, launching another Palin attack through a series of rapidly-spoken questions. Hypothetical! "And one more [question] to Mr. Williamson and his unknown reader. Are you sure this is a better tack to explain the Governor's private tanning bed...than just saying...(raised hands): she wanted a tanning bed?! Kevin Williamson of the National Review Online! With friends like this, who needs enemies? Not helping Governor Palin too much and today's..."

    Remember, OlbyWatch readers, Jeff Zucker looooves this guy.

    Dogs That Did Not Bark: predicted with uncanny accuracy here.

    And that's The Hour of Spin for this, the 864th day since the declaration that "Karl Rove will in fact be indicted". Great thanks to our OlbyWatch recappers who did such an assiduously good job tonight with a thoroughly thankless task!

    BOR talked about the trooper case, too. He let the "Is It Legal" ladies--Mercedes Colwin (in for Megyn Kelly) and Lis Wiehl--handle it.
    http://tinyurl.com/6zcoxl
    Click and watch. Olby and Hayes won't like the conclusion Colwin and Wiehl reached.


    As for the first dog that won't bark, CNN reports that Fiorina has cancelled her media appearances and McCain is furious with her: http://tinyurl.com/5ayx7q

    She seems to me like she always has to be the smartest chick in the room; and she has a huge chip on her shoulder due to the rather dubious outcome to her career. She's remembered mostly for the amount of money she's squeezed out of the companies trying to get rid of her (h/p and Lucent).

    Maybe McCain could draft Elizabeth Dole for some face time? I know she's running her own campaign but the added exposure can't hurt. Whatever happened to Sonny Bono's widow?

    Funny how Olbydouche only found the time to mention Palin's poll numbers when they fell. I don't recall him mentioning her numbers when they higher than everone elses. How this tool keeps a straight face is beyond me. Slovenly liberal hackery. Just another ratings-in-the-crapper night for the left-wing shills at More Slanted News By Communists.

    Can someone let me know the e-mail address of Oralmannnnn. Is it just countdown@msnbc.com?? Thanks.

    I watched the last 3 or 4 minutes of KO's circus tonight and couldn't at first figure out what that noise in the background was. I knew it reminded me of someone and then it came to me.

    That was Charlie Rangel snoring away in the Sleeping Dog Kennel.

    If he is forced to step down from the chairmanship of The House Ways and Means Committee will KO mention it then?

    I would think that the irony of the most important man in the country over tax policy being confused and forgetful about his own personal taxes would be fodder for KO. Oh, sorry, I forgot. Rangel is a democrat.

    --Worse was G. Gordon Liddy for daring to criticize Obama. "Soon to celebrate 78 years of living on his own personal plane of consciousness."

    Why doesn't olberpunk have Liddy on and say that to his face. What's the matter keefy, Are you really Olberpussy?

    Thanks to everyone that does the recaps. If there was anything like combat pay for bloggers, you've all earned it.

    I'm beginning to see a trend here...

    So can we all safely assume that Thursdays show will be about Palin, and Fridays show will be about Palin. And while were at it just pencil Palin in up until the election.

    Plus I can't be the only one who laughs out loud on the start of Countdown when Bathtub Boy says " which one of these 5 stories will you be talking about " and he always fails to mention that we'll be talking about the fiction he constructs and snap professional journalism that isn't even good enough for a High School news paper.

    "Burke told off two female protesters at some anti-Sarah Palin protest, gave out their cell number, told listeners to abuse them, and the two got death threats. He was suspended for a week."

    Burke should have tasered them! After all, Sarah's ex-brother-in-law, that loony trooper who tasered his 10 year old step son, only got a FIVE day suspension for that.

    It's ok for Obama, Olbermann and other leftists to outright lie. Nice.

    The budget cut line is classic leftist tactic and it is a lie, no question about it.

    Olbermann is so happy about some polls now, others are ignored. Like the poll that shows Biden has lower poll numbers than all three and loses to Palin in an hypothetical Presidential math-up. Why are those polls not slobbered all over?

    Oh, that's right....COUNTDOWN has become "Obama for President" infomercial.

    VERO POSSUMUS!

    And wasn't it Keith Olbermann who used to worry so about the place of his book against Bill O'Reilly's?.....Why does he not use the same system to assess the popularity and success of VP and POUTUS candidiates?.....

    #88 Change We Can Believe In: Barack Obama's Plan to Renew America's Promise


    #2,546 Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics (By Joe Biden)


    By the way, both McCain's years old autobiography, FAITH OF MY FATHERS, and a Sarah Palin biography are on The NYT Best Sellers List along with the two anti-Obama books....Obama's two autobiographies are higher on the paperback list, but the above mentioned Palin paperback is just behind The One.

    The left is simply fit to be tied over the surge and popularity of McCain/Palin. This was supposed to be a coronation, just like the democratic primary with HRC.....SURPRISE! Obama is now the Hillary in this election and November may just not be what the radical left had planned.

    If McCain wins, look for Olbermann to go crazy.

    Dignity? Keith hasn't a shred
    From the blue-blogs he gets spoon fed
    He's a slovenly hack
    He's way off track
    Like that train that ran into his head

    > It was cut from 550,000 to 275,000 so Keith was right.

    No the budget never was 550,000 in the first place. That's the amount that was requested. She reduced that by half, but even after doing it the amount was STILL 25,000 MORE than the previous year's budget. So she INCREASED the budget by 25,000. You can't call spending MORE on something "cutting the budget in half", unless you are a serial liar like the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann.

    You can't call spending MORE on something "cutting the budget in half",


    Yes you can if you are a propagandist and want to mislead people and get their emotions and anger all stirred up!

    Lies. And Olbermann dares to get upset at McCain's exagerations or distortions last week?

    Hypocrisy.

    Again, may I point out....Keith Olbermann claims to be a JOURNALIST and his show is supposed to be bsed on facts. He lied last night in saying a cut is the same thing as not increasing something as much as originally requested. The left has done that with entitlement increases and say Republicans "cut Social Security" etc.

    Palin increased the overall spending on Special Needs Children in 2009. Period. That is a fact.

    And Olbermann used his own network as propaganda fodder in cutting off Firoina's quote about ALL of the candidates not being capable of running a business. What a sham.

    Lies, distortions, exageration, lies of omission. Olbermann is just as guilty of it as Obama, McCain, Biden, Palin and all the rest. It is for the individual to decide on the motivations and implications of such manipulation and go from there.....

    The problem for NBC NEWS is that Olbermann is not a politician but their lead broadcaster on MSNBC.....What a shame!

    VERO POSSUMUS!

    Here's the Alaska budget for the Special Olympics for FY 2008:

    Special Olympics Alaska - 250,000 250,000


    GREAT job on the site, J$. I've been a lurker for a long time and this lie from Fat Ass finally brought me out.

    The Alaska FY 2008 budget bill that includes the Special Olympics:

    http://www.gov.state.ak.us/omb/08_OMB/budget/Enacted/SB_53_bill.pdf

    Special Olympics Alaska - 250,000 250,000

    You guys do realize that the poll Olby cited was a KOS POLL correct?

    And let me point out what REAL journalists do....they point out lies of BOTH candidates like Jake Tapper.....

    "Obama Inflates Role in Creation of Stimulus Package"


    http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2008/09/obama-inflates.html


    ###
    Did Obama supporter journalist Keith Olbermann cover this aspect of the campaign yesterday? Was this a "mutted mongrel?"

    And why did Olbermann omit this development. What was his motivation?

    If people only get their news from MSNBC, they would think Obama never lies and McCain lies all the time! This is misinformation and it is wrong.


    > I do not liked to be called a liar

    Neither do I. Which is why I didn't call you a liar. I called Olbermann a liar. Because he said when the budget goes up by 25,000, that's actually cutting it in half.

    You can argue all you want about why didn't she double the budget. That's a separate issue. I'm not debating what the budget should have been or whether she made the right decision. I'm looking at the dishonest way Olby twisted the facts. If Olbermann had asked, "why didn't she double the budget", we wouldn't even be having this discussion. The point here is that instead of phrasing it honestly, Olbermann lied that she cut the budget in half, when in fact she actually spent MORE than the previous year.

    If you are making $10 a day, and you ask for a raise to $40 a day, I might say no, that's too much, and give you $20 a day. So I've actually increased your salary by $10/day, but under the logic of Olbermann (and the blue blog he lifted the story from without fact checking it) no, I didn't increase your pay. I cut it in HALF!

    These are the sort of lies Olbermann tells on a regular basis, night after night. I know how tempting it can be for Olbypologists to try to rationalize some sort of defense for his dishonest propaganda, but sometimes one just has to admit that his spin is simply indefensible.

    > second of all some of you are going by the 2008 budget, not the 2009 budget Mr. Olbermann was going by.

    I was going to put a reply here, but it would have been almost verbatim what J$ said in response to you earlier.

    Now Olbermann's fellow traveler and Obama supporter at CNN, Jack Cafferty is claiming racism is responsible for the close polls in this election.

    The left is shameless. I cannot have ideological and policy differences with Obama? I must be a bigot for not supporting him?

    Hope indeed.

    I have been consistent in grouping Keith Olbermann with partisans like Hannity and Limbaugh.

    The difference between those rightwing pundits and Olbermann is he puts up airs and equates himself to the journalist Ed Murrow and his network uses him as a journalist in anchoring election night or convention coverage. That is dishonesty and shows poor journalistic standards.

    Ed Murrow was an objective reporter and even had the focus of his most famous investigations, Joe McCarthy, on his show, unfiltered and not confronted....Why? Because Murrow was fair and balanced.

    Olbermann makes allegations and puts out opinion without any balance or allowing the subjects of his hatred equal time to answer the allegations, just like Hannity and Limbaugh.

    This site would disappear if Olbermann did one of two things. Advertise himself honestly as a partisan flame thrower like Hannity and Limbaugh do and not pretend to be a journalist, or clean-up his act and allow people with different perspectives challenge his conclusions on his show....give equal time to the moderate and right perspective.

    I think NBC NEWS would be better served if they did one of those two things.

    Great catch of anther olby lie, J$. It is like the Kerry lie in 2004 saying thar GWB cut the VA budget when in fact he raised it by 38%. I see lying by libs is congential.

    Did anyone catch Tues ratings?...KO's Girlfriday Maddow actually had higher numbers than Bathtub boy.

    Watchout Maddow your days could be numbered if you keep outdoing KO. LOL!!!

    Also I have been and viewed Mr. Dollar's site, I find it very Pro-Fox and very anti MSNBC, while I normally watch BBC America, CNN or PBS for my news, I must say there is really no debate, seems to me they all share the same views, I find this site much better debate site, it seems to me that Mr Dollar's site only has views he wants to hear, props to whomever runs this site.

    EDITOR'S NOTE: Patrick, you were already banned from commenting on this site so it does not really matter what false identities you create you are still banned for reasons I have already explained. We welcome all points of view on this site and you are clearly a bright person. Why waste your time trolling around on a silly site like Olbermann Watch when there is so much more to life. Here's a suggestion, after your next appointment at the mental health clinic, take a walk around the block, get outside, breathe the fresh air. You will feel so much better and life might even start to make sense to you.

    Well, it's just as well you avoid J$P, Joe, because I don't think you'd like the enrollment rules.

    Johnny makes regular posters give ten percent of our earnings in homage to the New Corp Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Murdoch, O'Reilly, Shep Smith).

    At least that's where we thought the money was going. We've gotten a bit suspicious that Johnny might not be as pure and holy as he claims after he forced us to make him the executor of our Last Will and Testaments and told us that we should just put little underlined blanks in the places where our beneficiaries should be listed.

    Still--where are we to go? Johnny says FNC is "the fair and balanced Way, the Truth, and the Light" and if we watch anything else our eternal souls will burn in hell forever.

    Well, you can see we're pretty trapped. No one wants to sit around with Keith Olbermann for a minute, let alone spending eternity looking at his Moai head.

    Even so, I'd avoid J$P entirely, Joe. Don't even lurk there. The place has a way of getting under your skin, so stay away and don't even discuss the site, and you'll protect yourself from getting under ours...


    I detected a spelling and grammatical similarity between our good friend edwardrmispelled and our new friend, the 1970s all-star second baseman from Cincy.

    It appears ero's prediction of another olby follower following him onto the Olbywatchtower to carry on after his matyrdom was more of a deceitful, preplanned, pathetic sleeper cell infiltration than a prophetic, mystical, precognitive divining of future events.

    As Geraldine Jones would say, "The devil made me do it."

    Oh, look, ramjet, it seems that God has already come down on Patty-Joe-Hugh-Ed, like the Red Sea.

    "Johnny makes regular posters give ten percent of our earnings in homage to the New Corp Father, Son, and Holly Spirit (Murdoch, O'Reilly, and Shep Smith)."

    I KNEW IT!!!!!

    But I could have sworn that Shaun Hannity was the Holy Spirit!

    But I could have sworn that Shaun Hannity was the Holy Spirit!-MikeH

    Naw. There is no SHAUN Hannity at FOX.

    Sean, on the other hand, Hannity, is Joshua, leader of the Shofar Band of Blowers.

    Silly me! I had a glimmer of suspicion that it could have been Flucker.
