    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    September 5, 2008
    Keith Olbermann Denounces RNC Tribute to 9/11 Victims

    Claiming to speak for those affected by the attacks on 9/11, Keith apologized to his viewers for his own network's decision to air the video. Words cannot do justice to the sickening hubris of Olbermann in display here so just watch the video. Comments welcome.

    UPDATE: Olby hints that this will be the subject of further comment (i.e. another Special Education Komment):

    You know, previously these folks have gotten me pretty annoyed. Now, however, I'm mad.... Reading your great points here not only leavens my mood a little bit after this unexpected confrontation with propaganda makes me think that I might revisit this next week.

    His logic revolves in a circle
    The political hack called Merkle
    Inject self in story
    Keith's unfounded glory
    He's no Murrow or Studs Terkel

    Brilliant, Katy. Once again, well done.

    I can't help but laugh out loud when I watch this clown. His outrage is always so phony, it's hard to believe anyone could buy into it.

    Olberdouche, I sympathize with all victims, survivors and families/friends of 9/11 victims. I know 9/11 victims and survivors as well. I was not insulted by a 9/11 tribute to our heroes. Olby's faux indignation is for propaganda purposes and to steal attention away from the news event and other anchors and magnify himself. Olby always has to be the center of all attention. His little soliloquy is laughable.

    Olby was lashing out left right and center, poor sod is still hurting from Palins thunder punch in his groin yesterday.
    I thought Chrissy tried really tried hard to be only partially interested in the RNC.

    Oh I can hardly wait for the Tax Cheat's Speshul Education Comment. It should be a good laugh. I read some of the replies on Kos and they are absolutely hilarious. I especially liked this one from Flumptytail:

    "You know Keith I don't know if I could bear to follow politics on TV if you weren't there to express empathy for how painful it can be. I thank you for your humanity. It's making me cry. A good kind of crying."

    A good kind of crying. LOL. This just gets better and better.

    Ok so KO say's he's upset at the exploitation of 9/11 by the Republicans so he's going to respond by having a "Special Comment " next week which happens to be the week of to comment on the exploitation of 9/11 he's going to exploit 9/11 to attack exploiting 9/11? NEW Murrow indeed.

    I think the ONLY olby is upset is that MSDNC has finished in 4th place every night this week. Or maybe it is because Gov. Palin's ratings were as high as B Hussein and McCain beat him. But it isn't because he lost "friends" on 9/11. He has never had even one friend in all of his life.

    As Tony Snow (God rest his soul) once said, you can fit all of Olby's friends into a phone booth.

    look man, i lost family in antietam and they always bring it up when the civil war comes up, how callous.. the history channel should be ashamed of flickering up those pearl harbor images. what a cowardly douche nozzle this dude is! he doesnt dare want our enemies shown to be the heinous killers they are. he wants them shown as citizens of the world with different views. let the exposing of this coward flourish. thank god for this forum, j$, hot air,, et al.

    I understand what you mean spearule. Some of my family were killed fighting with Boudica at the Battle of Watling Street in 61 A.D. I always get really emotional whenever I see it on TV by no one from the History Channel the ever comes on and apologizes. I just sit there and cry. But it's a good kind of crying.

    I am praying big time that the Code Pinkos who disrupted the RNC Convention had been given MSNBC badges. And then they sing like birds to get the charges reduced.

    I said it at J$'s place....I really believe Keith Olbermann has a severe mental disability. I hope, for his sake, he is under qualified psychiatric care because this type of outburst, even if one lost friends or family on 9/11, could be controlled by a professional doing his job, in covering an event.

    Any other theories could be entertained, from the cynical to the idealisitc, but I really am coming to the conclusion that something psychiatric, along the lines of bipolar disorder, is the most likely reason.

    I am not being sarcastic or humorous. I am serious. This goes beyond politics or partisanship. When one cannot control emotional outbursts when it is necessary, required in one's daily functioning in their occupation or home life, it is a warning sign.

    cee those outbursts are theatrics. they are planned and the emotion is contrived. bi-polar, no. narcissitic self loving attention whore, yes.

    is that how you spell narcissitic?

    A personality flaw like narcisissm or borderline personality is not out of the question, but watching that tape just gave me the creeps and really suggested more than just a dysfunctional "hyperpartisan" using theatrics to insert somekind of balance. Again, that is not his job as a broadcaster and to allow himself to step over that bright professional line really begs another explaination.

    I really wonder if Tom Brokaw had a private conversation with NBC NEWS management after that outburst.

    > I am praying big time that the Code Pinkos who disrupted the RNC Convention had been given MSNBC badges.

    There are various theories floating around about where they got badges to get in. One of them is that they came from MSNBC. Well, it's not like MSNBC didn't have any spares laying around that they didn't need. After all, Olbermann didn't use his.

    git em jd

    I guess the phone booth Mr. Snow referred to was actually "inside" the World Trade Center.

    You know Rudy lost a lot of friends on 9/11 and he was at the RNC.

    But this is just hilarious when you think about. He cries on air how they ( republicans ) are exploiting 9/11 for their agenda, yet he himself is going to have a talking point exploiting the Republicans exploiting 9/11 so Bathtub Boy can pursue his agenda.

    I also find it funny he's taking Friday off to cover NFL on Sunday. I guess that Friday off was part of his agreement to stay in NY for the RNC. ( along with the Cubs game on Saturday he went too )

    Pampered, in his bubble at 30 Rock, pursuing stories no one else would. Bathtub Boy is creating a nice fantasy world around him.

    Cee, You are spot on. Even if he was faking his emotional outburst (which I believe he was and had pre-planned), it takes a real creepy sort of person to do something like that. If he had a real emotional breakdown on-air, then there is obviously something wrong with him. Even after learning of the death of JFK, Cronkite was able to maintain his composure. (OK, I know Cronkite was a journalist who became an anchorman after years of actual news reporting, not because of a decades-long passion for baseball card collecting, but you get the point.) It was a tribute, for God's sake. Either way, the guy needs to be in Bellevue, not sitting in an anchor's chair at 30 Rock.

    Oprah Winfrey is a racist: She will not invite Sarah Palin as a guest until after the election. Oprah, you racist hag, Palin will be running the country with John McCain. Maybe you can host Barry after he loses the election and complain how stupid, racist Americans denied Obamessiah his media-approved dream. BOYCOTT OPRAH and her advertisers.

    I heard a quiver in his voice, but I didn't see any wettness in his eyes. What a phoney.

    BTW, does he think we should just forget about what happened on 9/11?

    Something Edward R. "Ted" Baxter doesn't get: NEVER FORGET 9/11

    Something I want to share. I'm a video editor (for a living) and put together a tribute in the hours after the attack. It played in NYC firehouses and went over with some of the first troops to Afghanistan. I will never forget.

    Johnny, the only thing better than if Code Pinkos has MSNBC credentials is if they had Keith Olbermann and/or Rachel Madcow's MSNBC credentials.

    There are two candidates, each with a running mate. There are two parties, two campaigns and two sets of supporters. Just because a tribute to the victims of 9/11 occurs at one party's national convention doesn't mean it is a tribute by only party members to only victims and family members of the party. The victims of Sept. 11th were Americans, not Democrats nor Republicans. Each individual American who watched the RNC had the choice to participate in the tribute or not. Any exclusion was self imposed.

    Oprah is nothing more than a media whore for the left. She would rather attend a KKK rally than have Palin on her show.

    Have an intelligent unbiased conversation with a Republican would be so horrible.

    Obamessiah is the chosen one and the media believes that the public is too stupid to make up their own minds. Too bad for them that because of their immediate baqshing of Palin, the backlash has only just begun.

    Olbytool outraged over a 9/11 tribute is laughable at best. He's proved once again that he's an expert of making an ass out of himself and pretty much stands alone in finding it so offensive.

    Normally, Oprah would be very interested in giving her audience an inside look at a working mother of 5 who is the newest celebirty on the national stage.......

    But no....Why?

    Oh, that's right....she endorces and campaigned for Barack Obama.

    Oprah's audience does not seem to be her focus currently.

    Oprah's focus seems to be her personal political worries.....


    Which is fine, it's a free country and I would never deprive an individual their choice to say and associate with anyone....

    But I hope those audience members who think she is an authentic, open minded and fair person remember what decision she made this election cycle....

    And vote with their feet and dollars.

    Liberals are so transparent when they show bogus "concern".

    They show bodies of dead American soldiers, some brutalized

    They show caskets of dead American soldiers

    They show pictures of Katrina every time it rains


    They won't show pictures of the victims of 9/11, a deliberate attack on our country. They don't want Americans to remember!

    Boy after their mess with the DNC MSNBC’s RNC coverage didn’t go smooth either.
    Every chance Oblerman got to prove which candidate he’s voting for he took it.

    Any time they switched back to Keith in the studio it was one asinine attack after another on McCain and or Palin. These attacks left his own colleagues with confused looks and scratching their heads.

    What a spectacle Keith put on, the word objectivity isn’t in Keith’s world.

    The 9/11 tribute was fine with me as it was with other networks.
    As long as it didn’t tell us to vote for McCain, I was fine with it.
    Keith was being a drama queen, and Keith isn’t the only person to lose friends in 9/11, a lot us New Yorkers did too.

    There we go, Clarence - the Eagleton whisper campaign - right on schedule. The Obama campaign has been telling its operatives and surrogates to keep bringing up the Eagleton VP flap (as if it could ever happen again). Clarence Page: brainwashed Barry tank dweller.

    Olby's in the tub tonight, so I switched to BOR. Sally Quinn is backpedaling furiously because of the heat she took for her sexist and elitist column about Palin the other day. Sally claims she is neither sexist nor elitist. Sally said she would have written the same thing if Sarah Palin were a Dem. HAR! What a liar you are, Sally.

    I know you think that the vast majority of America is way too stupid and unsophisticated to understand anything you say, Sally. Quit while you are behind. The more she talks, the deeper she digs the hole. Now Sally is questioning whether Gov. Palin will put her country first because she has a child with special needs. Shut up, Sally.

    These arguments that Keith and his clone, Maddow, keep spewing about McCain/Palin just don’t make sense.

    I’ll be honest here I’m leaning towards voting for Obama.
    But to say the ticket of Obama/Biden have more experience then McCain/Palin is wrong. It’s really about even on both sides.

    And then Keith/Maddow argue that Palin is a heart beat away for the presidency, they speak as if McCain has some terminal illness we don’t know about.

    If I’m not mistaken, The last time a vice president took over for a president was Gerald Ford in the early 70’s more then 35 years ago!!

    And according to the Democratic voters they don’t want Biden as VP either.
    He finished a distant fourth in the Democratic race; he was the fourth choice not the 2nd.

    Maddow stated recently “can there be no questions asked of Palin without people crying sexism.” If you say she can’t be a mother of five and the VP, that’s sexist.

    At times, Keith/Maddow are very quick to say Obama is being discriminated against because of his color. And in the same breath they say McCain is too old.
    But they both seem to forget there is an age discrimination law too, thus anytime they bring up McCain’s age, they are discriminating.

    When Maddow’s show goes on the air, it will be two hours of the same attacks.

    Oprah Winfrey believed OJ Simpson was innocent... nuf sed.

    I know were not supposed to feed our resident troll EdwardROlberman..but I just have to rub this in his face...

    Palin is now viewed more favorable then either Lord Obama or McCain.
    The race is tied which means Lord Obama's bounce is gone.
    And FOX news completely trounced all it's competitors.

    Oh also I think I figured out why KO is really so mad at's because McCain chose a Female sidekick that's smarter,funnier,more popular and prettier than his. New Murrow indeed.

    I understand that McCain and Lord Obama plan on going to Ground Zero together on 9/ is it possible that KO will somehow find a way to denounce McCain for trying to exploit 9/11 and praise Lord Obama for honoring the victims of 9/11 at the same time?..somehow I see him doing it. New Murrow indeed.
