    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    January 16, 2009
    Friday Night Recappers Open Thread

    Posted by johnny dollar | Permalink | Comments (24) | | View blog reactions


    Ratings recap for Thurs. Jan. 15 broadcasts.

    There's trouble in river city ... for Olbermann

    With news broadcasts truncated by the Bush speech lead-in, these numbers might not be very indicative of much.

    BUT ... O'Reilly had a huge night, with lots of coverage of the plane crash, as opposed to Olbermann's heavy post-speech analysis. Hannity also pulled great numbers.

    And really hammering home Bill's 2.5 million viewer win over Olby is the fact that Campbell Brown beat Olby in the 25-54 demo. This is probably not indicative of a trend as she probably picked up non-cable-news regulars ... that is, people who aren't too familiar with cable news and were interested in seeing the Bush speech, and went with the most familiar brand name, which is CNN (this is why CNN won election night). These numbers could indicate Fox News is picking up some of those "casual" cable viewers.

    Brown also beat Olby in total viewers according to TVNewser, though I believe this includes those watching just the Bush speech:

    He really just said BillO was worse than the American Taliban JWL. This was an obvious attempt to draw attention to himself. Hopefully nobody falls for it

    After watching the past 2 nights of both Matthews and Olbermann, I foresee them crashing and sinking in the Hudson River. Yes, Olby has gone off the deep end of his schict over at A Mess nbc. His ratings are showing more than ever and the douch that he is doesn't have the balls to bring this up on his show, I wonder why? Bottom line, what's this idiot of the airwaves going to do when Bush is finally gone?
    Keith, you are one of the most deplorable news people out there. Your bias, pro obama, pro left wing lunacy has gone to the extremes that you are now the most ignorant newsman out there. Keith, quit, quit now while you can. Move to Canada or Russia. Your spewing of massive hatred has gone to far. Find yourself lucky that you only go to places close to home with the security that you have, because you would'nt make it out of state, you pussy. I look forward to Keith's show going in the tank very soon, and the sooner the better.

    Tonight's O'Reilly attack was nastier than we've seen in a while. I think it's time to send in Jesse Watters to school Olby Billo-style!

    I went to the "Countdown" website, but didn't watch the video for the attack. I did notice that it was in WPitW and the title for the video was "O'Reilly legacy worse than Bush legacy"...or something like that. Besides the John Walker Lindh equivocation, what else did our Man on Fan say about our humble correspondent?

    John, BOR go to great lengths not to go after nor mention Keith.

    ...*goes* to great lengths.

    Maddows segment with the Rolling Stone guy is the type of thing MSNBC apparently sees as the "news" of the future. This was a complete fantasy story reported on as though it was a fact and newsworthy. The same treatment was given to the W movie. It's shameful.

    Mike C is correct. I think Olbs attacks on Billo will continue to be more and more offensive until he gets a reaction. Comparing him to a man who took up arms against his own country is just the start. Imagine the outrage that would show up in all the media if BillO, or especially Limbaugh made such a comparison. Don Imus was taken off air for less.

    Oh oh. Keep a WPITW watch on Glen Beck (again). Beck was on O'Reilly today and compared Billo to Tim Russert as a fair interviewer. Oh boy. Olby can't let that one go by, can he?

    Where does KO get off slamming Billo for "demonizing dissent"? Excuse me, but which of the two actually bring on guests with contrary points of view, actually fostering debate?

    That must be what KO means. One can't "demonize" another point of view if one simply ignores it to begin with, right?

    But you've gotta love Olby's "I'm rubber and you're glue" defense against the O'Reilly tirade. "Start with yourself" indeed. "Spewing bile for a decade." You're one to talk, pal.

    O'Reilly "despises those who in the name of ideology want to weaken the country."

    Olby of course thinks O'Reilly is acting from ideology simply because Olby despises him, and that's only cuz O'Reilly is on in the same time slot and kills him in the ratings.

    Well, Campbell Brown beat him yesterday. Would Olby like to turn the guns on her now?

    What a hypocrite!

    Oh, I will admit the past two shows by KO have just been over the top and he's completely gone off the deep end.

    I mean he should just really come out, him and Matthews and say look, "we LOVE Obama, we WANTED him to win and we're in his back pocket."

    If I read those ratings right, KO's days are numbered. If not, he's going to be the laughing stock of the news community, which he's nearly almost there by now.

    It's hard to respect someone who tells the current President to shut the hell up, that he's full of crap and a facist and this man DOESN'T VOTE!

    It's a shame that they don't let KO have an email address over at MSNBC, that sucker would be literally flooded every day. Anyway, we have the weekend now to savor before KO and Matthews apply their lipstick to pucker up on Obama's behind.

    Every night Kountdown is a bore
    The same shtick as the night before
    Bashing Palin and Bill
    Gives Keith a cheap thrill
    Like his moronic live-in whore

    Olbr is back to posting comments and plugs on his favorite loon blog, dailykos. Given that Kos is basically the ghostwriter for 99% of countdown, when do you think they'll start to demand olbermann specifically cite them as his source on air? He read one of those diary things word for word for his opening segment re: bush admin ending at 5 PM Friday. After his 8 yrs in 8 min he of course ran to Kos to see the loons in a frenzy hootin & hollerin how great olbs is. He seems like a very unhappy and insecure man. What else would explain the desparate need to feel accepted. What other "news man" or person with any self respect would sell themselves out like that.

    Did Keith have any crash/water landing survivors or survivors of similar crash landings on his show last night or was it partisan politicking for the whole hour?

    Can someone answer me this question:

    I recently found another attempt at a wiki revision in the Olbermann Flood.

    Why does Wikipedia disallow any references to Olbermann being a liberal (he cannot even be described as "....sportscaster, 'liberal' political commentator") when the first sentence that is used to describe O'Reilly is "Conservative television/radio host"?

    I understand the legend out there that the wiki page is slanted to the left, but how do they justify their stance?

    Does anyone know?

    "John, BOR goes to great lengths not to go after nor mention Keith."

    Yeah, I know the dance they do, Mike. But a guy can dream, can't he? Remember that "comedy" sketch KO produced about how to handle an O'Reilly ambush? Well, I think if it ever really happened, he would probably stutter something about loofahs, trying desperately to remember his own how-to guide, as he dropped a deuce in his pleated pants. After recovering from the initial humiliation, we'd witness his very first Speshul Komment on "Bill Orally, Terrorist Stalker".

    It's amazing; O'Reilly could go after him from so many different angles, yet for years has chosen to let Olbermann hold the lawsuit over his head. Or maybe he has some master plan for the guy, who knows...

    Katy T has been on fire the last couple of nights. Kudos.

    Katy T has been on fire the last couple of nights. Kudos.

    Its almost as if Mathews and Olbermann are in competition to see who can oraly pleasure the hate America crowd the best.

    That's a bit graphic.

    Is Obama going to invite his aunt Zeituni Onyango to the inauguration?

    On the subject of John Gibson, his show moved to 12-3PM today.

    Via the transcript:
    #2: The Media Matters Minute.

    Worse was Brian Kilmeade. Blue blog source: Media Matters.
    "The bronze to Brian Kilmeade of the morning show on Fixed News [Ding!], reads those talking points [Ding!] like nobody's business. Thinking, not so much." Quote likely read in dumb voice. "Kilmeade then tells a guest, ..." Likely back to dumb voice. By the way, it sounds like he's asking a question. A question generates an answer. That's how an interview goes. Back on OlbyPlanet, "[Carol Browner's] position as presidential adviser on climate and energy, that doesn't require anybody to confirm her. Brian, you have been a wonderful contestant. As a parting gift, we would love to give you the home version of the conservative parrot [Ding!] game."

    Worser was Bill Cunningham. Blue blog source: DeadSpin.
    (The link features an image of the Mr. C gesturing #1 but with a different digit on the hand.)
    "The silver to Bill Cunningham, the rabid [Ding!] radio host of Cincinatti. Got away with comparing Obama to Hitler. But as with many of the lunatic fringe [Ding!], he may have met his Waterloo in sports. Cunningham talking about the University of Cincinnati hoops squad, quote [Ding!], ..." Quote read by the progressive hero King Olbermahn. Response? "I think the man just Imused all over himself." I think Rip 'n Read just parroted the blog he ripped and read from. "Just for added zest, the station he is on in Cincinatti broadcasts the University of Cincinatti basketball games." To be honest, I'm no fan of Bill Cunningham, either. In the one time I saw him on "The Factor" in November 2007, he filibustered/interview hijacked like crazy. It was painful. Speaking of "The Factor"...

    Worst was...oh, come on, guess. Yep, Another O'Reilly Attack! I couldn't identify a blue blog source, but it was a parsing of last Wednesday's Talking Points Memo...which was followed by the Top Story segment with Col. David Hunt and Bob Beckel! Bob Beckel, Keithy. Bob Beckel. NewsBusters posted about the T-Points and Top Story on Friday:
    And here is the transcript...,2933,480055,00.html
    T-Points video...
    Top Story video...
    ...and Miller Time video:

    As this aired last Wednesday, I knew that Keith was going to tear into the eeevil O'Reilly over it. I figured it would be either WPitW or #1 on Thursday. But now-former-President Bush's farewell address--and to a lesser extent (on OlbyPlanet at least), the crash water landing of US Airways 1549--kept Man on Fan from held up his attack until Friday. That brings us to:
    "But our winner, Bill-O the clown [Ding!], heartbroken that the end of his fantasy world [Ding!] is near, the one in which he is Jack Bauer and Bush is Jack Bauer and Cheney is also Jack Bauer. Also terrified at the prospect somebody somewhere might be held accountable. O‘Reilly opened his show thusly, ..." Ted Baxter voice likely used, and parsing. "No, that was done the other day, when Mr. Bush's head of prosecution for detainees said we tortured [Ding!] that man al Khatani. ..." More Baxter and parsing, followed by likely sarcasm. "Of course, you don‘t want anybody reporting the Bush administration's mistakes, because Mr. Bush was so diligent about owning up to them. Obviously, Abu Ghraib would have corrected itself if we had ignored it." Time for parsing with a bad hysterical impression, likely with an image of the parsed quote next to an image of our humble correspondent with a big head on a small body. "If you don't count the anthrax killings, Bill." Ooh, a Krazy Konspiracy Theory resurfaces. "But if you ignore the fact that Bush and Cheney didn't protect Americans before 9/11, and if you fell for all those Diet Coke and Mentos plots they foiled --" Yep, he went back to Baxter parsing...all likely based on the transcript and his track record; I wouldn't dare watch anymore. Then, Edward R. Olbermann likely launched his trademark indignation and faux outrage. "How about starting with yourself, pal, because with the hateful bile you have been spilling for a decade, and the racism and the homophobia and the demonizing of dissent, you, Bill O‘Reilly, have personally harmed this country far more than a John Walker Lindh ever did. Bill O‘Reilly, today‘s worst person in the world."

    Okay, I'm hungry. I need to eat. Thanks for reading.
