    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    Countdown: Monday Recappers Thread

    Bathtub Boy

    This is tonight's recappers thread for The Hour of Spin. We need you to document the outrageous lies and vertiginous spin of Krazy Keith. Watch Oralmann if you dare, and do your recapping right here. Comments are open!

    Via the "Countdown" website, but only through preview images:
    #5A: The evil Republicans are still griping about the Stimulus bill. Keith pimped out E.J. Dionne.
    #5B: Paul Krugman sat down with his ideological brother to breakdown the bill.

    #4: A segment about Roland Burris.

    #3: Monkeymann gripes that the evil George W. Bush was only the 36th Worst President according to a new C-SPAN.

    BPitW: Sarah Palin's favorite clothier changes its name. Blue blog source: The Swamp. http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/blog/2009/02/sarah_palins_shop_not_out_of_t.html
    Ha-ha! It was called Out of the Closet. Gotcha!

    Oddball: Stuff that was ripe for ridicule by King Olbermahn.

    Still Bushed: Blackwater changes *its* name to Xe (pronounced "Z"). Blue blog source: Talking Points Memo. http://tpmmuckraker.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009/02/blackwater_is_dead_long_live_xe.php

    #2: The Media Matters Minute. I couldn't make out Worse or Worser, but Worst was Rush Limbaugh. I was unable to figure out what the topic was and therefore could not get a blue blog source.

    A dull & uneventful program....hopefully the ratings will reflect it.

    I clicked on the video for #2, but muted it. Worse was Betsy McCaughey. Blue blog source: TVNewser. http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/msnbc/fmr_ny_lt_gov_to_olbermann_do_you_have_the_backbone_and_the_facts_to_debate_me_108717.asp
    It looked like he was mocking the former New York Lt. Gov. after reading the part where she challenged him to invite her on the Hour of Spin.
    Worser was two people I didn't recognize, which is what I get for muting the audio.
    As I said, Worst was Rush. I'll bet "comedian [Ding!]" was uttered more than once. Blue blog source confirmed: Media Matters. http://mediamatters.org/items/200902130016
    Hand gesticulation was in play after reading the quote [Ding!] MM provided...in a lousy Limbaugh voice, of course. Also, I'm going to e-mail Johnny a screencap from that part.

    Oh, Rachel.....you're just upset that Olberwoman likes your twin sister, Mark Teixeira more than you....GET OVER IT!!

    Welcome, Skunky. It takes a minute or few for comments to appear after you click Submit.

    The OlbyFlood shows that TVNewser has already posted about KO naming B-Mac Worse:
    http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/msnbc/the_mccaugheyolbermann_volley_108753.asp
    "... Olbermann reported McCaughey sits on the Board of Directors of Cantel Medical and recently 'received 750 shares of stock options' from the company, 'worth about $11,000.'
    Olbermann then repeated what he told TVNewser on Saturday: 'Ms. McCaughey is welcome on Countdown. Like every other paid spokesperson trying to shill a product, she is invited to buy commercials on the show.'"

    So, he *did* mock her.

    the mccaughey attack claims that she took $11,000 in stock options from "bigpharma" just days before her article. i have no idea where he found that but hopefully its another reliable source like facts/fat.

    Wow, I can't believe he went there with Betsy.

    He already shot himself in the foot with that weak ass story last week, and now he reloaded his gun and shot the other one. And this from a guy with an eye problem.

    Keith does know there are other shows out there besides CountDown right? Lets see if there's anyone out there who hates KO enough to have Betsy on just for this ( I can think of a few )

    Basically, he ducked her challenge to debate and wrapped it up in a fresh attack to give himself cover. Kowardly Keith strikes again.

    its a thinkprogress source for mccaughey:

    http://wonkroom.thinkprogress.org/category/raa/

    Good news. His lame brain, arrogance and mouth are helping him load all the cylinders in a game of Russian Roulette. The quote above, "Like every other paid spokesperson trying to shill a product......" should really impress advertisers for the program. Maybe as they start reconsidering, Moveon.org will start TV advertising. Or have they already moved on from this wacko?

    I think we may have the makings of another rip 'n' read moment. If Oralmann thinks her working for Cantel Medical makes her a shill for Big Pharma (as the Think Propaganda website claims), maybe he should've checked the company first. They don't make pharmaceuticals. They make medical equipment for dialysis, etc.

    It looks like Betsy did/does get stock from Cantel Med (if the SEC info from the link is correct), but they are not bigpharma- they deal in medical devices. There is a difference b/w pharmaceuticals and medical devices per the FDA, but I think this looks like a case of both Betsy and KO spinning the facts in their favor- neither is really wrong of right. That's my 2 cents on the issue.

    ha, johnny$ beat me to it....

    is olby really trying to take credit for the simpson's changing their opening?

    Testing. Testing. Did I get denied by a moderator on my post to last Friday's thread? It looks like Skunky's post went up within minutes automatically. Please advise.

    He's exhibiting typical blogger behavior. Say whatever you want whether you have a shred of proof or not, don't bother to pay attention to rebuttals of your argument, carry on as if yours is the only voice in the room, and pick and choose what to respond to.

    Olbermann is like a Swiss Army Knife — a complete tool

    What happened, irush? Was Keith in the couch gag?

    There are many things wrong with Herr Olbermahn's parroting of Betsy's relationship with Cantel. As others have pointed out, they aren't "big pharma"...they neither peddle pharmaceuticals nor are they "big", with revenues of approximately $250 million (a nice sum no doubt, but a mere pittance in the world of "big pharma".)

    Keith mentioned that a 2008 filing mentioned something about her earning 50K or so from the company, I didn't find anything about that.

    HOWEVER, you've got to laugh at the financial ignorance of those who "broke" the story in blue blog land and Keithee for parroting it. They claim she received approximately $11,000 "worth" of stock options. Well...she received 750 options with an EXERCISE PRICE of $14.99. Yes, if you do the simple math, multiplying those two values together will get you $11,242.50. However, as most people know, that exercise (or strike) price means she has the option to BUY the stock at that price, and she will only make money if the stock is worth more than that at the time (and enough more than that price to cover any brokerage or transaction related fees). For those options to be truly "worth" more than $11,000, the Cantel stock would need to be worth at least $30 per share. Oh, today it is trading at $13.39 per share, and over the past 10 years has traded at $30 during only one period...right before it fell off a cliff. My guess is that speculators at the time were anticipating some kind of major event/announcement that didn't materialize as expected. Since 2001, it has really traded as about a $15 stock.

    Gideon 539, you have successfully breached all barriers and are onboard. Welcome. Please be advised, to avoid the cruel embarrassment of multiple posts, allow a good 3 minutes for your post to get through the pipeline.

    So if Betsy McCaughey were a doctor would it disqualify her from debating Olbermann?

    Is Rachel Maddow's opinion on the Fairness Doctrine entirely suspect because she has a monetary stake in the industry?

    Frankly, should Keith be reporting anything having to do with bail out provisions in the stimulus package, seeing that he has a vested monetary interest via a connection to GE?

    keith said somebody asked him for ways to improve the simpsons once a while back and his response was they should maybe change the opening sequence. well, the simpsons is going HD now and they have updated the opening...naturally KO spoke, people listened, change happened.

    if KO wouldve had the stones to put her on (thinking he had this great "gotcha up his sleeve" re: stocks) Betsy wouldve pointed out what we have and KO would not come out well. Chances like this, and last weeks screwups will keep Countdown just Keith and the regular newsweekers until he gets his oats back

    Observer Dan:

    Hey thanks man. There were a few barriers. Strange denials when trying to sign up but finally got here. Also, thanks for adding extra context to my post from that science blog from Fridays thread.

    I am wondering if there is a limit to the number of characters allowed per post? I tried to copy and paste the post that I typed for friday's thread, and this one gave me the same type of 'thank you for your post the host will decide if it appears soon'. a moderator quarantine type situation. Please advise.

    Thanks

    Out of curiosity, did he show the jab at "Hannity & Colmes" on last night's "Family Guy"? When I watched the episode on DVR, I skipped that part, but saw their representative of Alan. Not nice.

    It was Droopy the dog. Like I said, not nice.

    Making a living is not only not ethical for a worst person, it's clear evidence of their worseness.

    Keith and Madcow work for GE
    (That's Obama and Company)
    Their interest is vested
    The facts aren't requested
    By the tools at (MS)NBC

    I think Keith is emotionaly stunted. I think he is stuck emotionaley at 12. Its like my team rocks yours SUCK. I think he was the kidd at school that always got picked last and never got over it. Poor guy fianlly is leader of the team, its the bad news bears of cable news. ROFL! Its just the childish need to try to degrade those people he disagrees with and its getting old really really ReALLY fast if not totally borning. I mean if he was actually funny it might be ok once in a while, or even if it was based on somewhat factual information but its niehter.

    Every so often, Keith performs an act that screams" I'm not quite like the other guys!". Recently, Keith displayed this big time while attacking Bill O'Reilly for making the hideous mistake of referring to a fictional character as the "Wicked Witch of the East" rather than the" Wicked Witch of the West". Keith became giddy, used a Scooby Do impression uttering "roh roh!", as if the teacher would be back in the classroom at any moment, and by golly, Keith was gonna do some tattling!
    Do the people around Keith cringe as much as the rest of us do when he acts like this?

    It wasn't even a mistake. O'Reilly said he used "East" because that's where DC is...on the East Coast. So Olby gets it wrong again.

    Congratulations to all those who comment. For a while it seemed like only a few kept OW alive. They are saints.
    Olbermann is a fetid psychological stew of insecurities. It must be sad be so full of so much self-hatred. btw...Rach's show is seeming more amateurish than ever.
    And if I ever found out that the Simpson's actually did ANYTHING based on something suggest by Keith O. I would quit watching it. Wait a minute...every night is very Mickey Mouse.

    As I said in my WPitW recap in last Thursday's thread, Laura Ingraham was the first to bring up the usage of "East" instead of "West" that night on "The Factor"...40 minutes before Keith "Ruh-roh" Olbermann.

    TIME magazine has listed Olbermann's favorite blog as one of the 5 most overrated blogs. I wish I had the cut&paste right now b/c TIME's commentary sums it up pretty well and could be applied to KO's Countdown verbatim.

    Good.

    Since the death of Walt Disney, Mickey Rooney has claimed that Disney named the mouse character after him,being a notable child actor at the time. The Disneys have scoffed at this. Sound familiar?

    Gideon, I've found if I refresh after submitting my comment usually appears right away.

    It might be worth a try.
