    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    February 11, 2009
    Countdown: Wednesday Recappers Thread

    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. Supposedly Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann plans to correct one of his two lies perpetrated last Friday. Another demonstration of the Power and Influence of Olbermann Watch! Watch Oralmann if you dare, and do your recapping right here. Comments are open!

    Wow, what an apology. "sorry for the typo. mindlessly parroting the propaganda? noooo, were glad we did that."-Olby at 8:26pm

    Yeah it's still early, but I have a feeling that he isn't going to say anything about it, but apparently he's going to talk about BOR, so stay tuned.

    Another example tonight of how Keithee is losing it.

    He places Sean Hannity in the "Best Persons" segment but treats him as a "Worst Person".

    WTF?????????????????

    he ties that lead to the worlds best fox attack but both also doubled for his apology for repeating a typo. It was a weak attempt at being clever in masking the apology in a fox attack.

    he ties that lead to the worlds best fox attack but both also doubled for his apology for repeating a typo. It was a weak attempt at being clever in masking the apology in a fox attack.

    well he did make the apology, albeit tongue in cheek. the "shiver me timbers.com" thing was just a way of saying I did it...but I don't regret it.

    Dammit, I jumped the gun. Olby did apologize for the Murdoch quote... Sort of... Olby only apologized for the website seekingalpha originally getting the quote wrong.

    "SeekingAlpha.com has yet to apologize for ITS mistake, so we will."

    He blamed the website! He apologized FOR THEM, not for his own lack of journalistic due diligence.

    Dammit, I jumped the gun. Olby did apologize for the Murdoch quote... Sort of... Olby only apologized for the website seekingalpha originally getting the quote wrong.

    Yeah Johnny, it was kind of cheesy on Keith's part. It was more like...too bad they got caught but I didn't do it, I just relayed what they said. He should've said that myself and my staff (and yes I know they are monitoring this so....*BEEP* you staff) screwed up and were lifting stuff from other sites, but NOOOO, bathtub murrow won't do that.

    Dammit, I jumped the gun. Olby did apologize for the Murdoch quote... Sort of... Olby only apologized for the website seekingalpha originally getting the quote wrong.

    dammit, I got so excited I'm double and triple posting!


    Why does this take so long to load pnowadays?

    Damn Irish, who's shooting at you? Duck and cover dude. lol

    Once you click Submit, wait a minute and your post will appear. Submitting comments here requires patience. That's a general tip for everyone here.

    Bottom Line, Keith can't fess up and thus he is the King of Liars. KO knew what he did and was saying, he is too womanly of a coward to come out of the closet and admit on tv that he was wrong and by doing so his ratings would go further into the tank from what they are now. I hear re-runs of Andy Griffith show are beating KO in the ratings. It won't be much longer folks, say good bye keith and don't let the door hit ya on the way out. From one extremist to another, Keith, shut the hell up and leave this country NOW. You Keith Slobberman are a disgrace to the American Public. Your Socialistic slant is not what this country wants. Again, I tell you, SHUT THE HELL UP and leave, and take your boy toy Madcow with you.


    He called them the "usually reliable SeekingAlpha.com"

    then said he will rely in the future on "ShiverMeTimbers.com," and slammed Bill O'Reilly for picking on GE stock when he says News Corp. stock is down 66%.

    I love how he criticized that Fox reporter for a half-assed apology and didn't apologize for reading propaganda, while KO did the same thing himself 20 minutes later.

    Whatever. Here's the ratings for the Tuesday shows, in which KO once again got owned by O'Reilly

    http://tvbythenumbers.com/2009/02/11/cable-news-ratings-for-tuesday-february-10/12678

    The apology went pretty much as I envisioned it a few days ago...blame the source, Kountdown was merely relaying the information, and throw in a pirate reference at the end.

    http://www.olbermannwatch.com/archives/2009/02/olbermanns_late_3.php#comment-221670

    The piece I didn't foresee was KO actually taking it upon himself to apologize on behalf of the website. How big of you Olbs.

    In BPitW, two Fox personalities were named.
    Sean Hannity. Blue blog source: Media Matters. http://mediamatters.org/items/200902100012
    Manatee! [Ding!] "Sean Hannity only skims what he supposedly reads."

    Then, "Best half-butted apology, Jon Scott of Fixed News [Ding!]." Blue blog source: Media Matters, again! It's Groundhog Day every day on OlbyPlanet. http://mediamatters.org/countyfair/200902110016?f=h_top
    Thanks to Johnny, here's video of Jon's apology this afternoon on "Happening Now": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4JOd6KS7Zk
    Monkeymann says Jon Scott "is a typo."

    #2: That Media Matters Minute.
    Worse was Brian Deer. Bingo! Right on the nose! HuffPo got it right...
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-kirby/keith-olbermann-todays-be_b_166103.html
    ...except for the last paragraph, which was edited to include a "half-butted" Olbypology for the "tolerates facts" lie of Friday and last night. And we mean "half-butted." What kind of apology features a snarky impression? Fat Ass emphasized the word "FAT" in "tolerates fat."

    Worser was Another O'Reilly Attack! Billo the Clown! [Ding!] I couldn't find a blue blog source. It was from last night's Talking Points Memo titled "President Obama and financial corruption."
    http://tinyurl.com/azwps3
    Jeffrey Immelt and GE are brought up with 2:12 left.
    Here is the BillOReilly.com summary of that T-Points Memo: http://billoreilly.com/show?action=viewTVShow&showID=2261#1

    When I saw this last night, I instantly knew it would be WPitW fodder. Right again. But keep in mind that this was a broader commentary on Americans' lack of trust in the stock market and how trust was lost.
    But in Man on Fan's latest attack, he selfishly intoned that Mr. Bill's GE reportage is because of him. Who's obsessed with whom again? Gotcha!: News Corp down $4.6 billion! This is why I gave up watching video of this man. I'm going to save myself and close out of the "Countdown" webpage before I see anything else. I did catch another Billo [Ding!] and Fixed News [Ding!] before closing.

    Worst was some Congressman, blah blah yada, no thanks.

    Okay, I'll go back and at least check the preview. Worst was Steve Austria. Blue blog source: Mother Jones. http://www.motherjones.com/economy/2009/02/have-you-ever-heard-rep-steve-austria-r-oh

    #1: Eric Cantor sent around a potty-mouth joke video. Oralmann and Margaret Carlson took turns slapping the House Minority Whip around.

    #5: A blue dress interview with Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). Time to update the list. I'm sure the Congresswoman breathed a huge sigh of relief before coming on. This is much better than talking to Alexis Glick at the evil Fox on "Your World" four hours earlier, she must have thought. Here is that interview: http://tinyurl.com/awrrf5
    But I'm stupidly going to watch video of #5 to jot down the questions asked of Rep. Waters.
    -Did the hearings reveal to you anything you didn't know already? What did you learn if anything today?
    -So answer your question there. I mean Mr. Pandit from Citigroup said "we need to do a better job of acknowledging and embracing the new realities." Was that an indication that some of them got it or did you sense this was largely still a performance on their part?
    -So you raised a point that is probably closer to the heart of most Americans than the headlines that have been about the corporate jets and the bonuses, the question of credit card rates and what it's actually doing to the on-the-line consumer. But let me ask you about those sort of big ticket horror stories, the bonus money, the bailout money that essentially turns into bonus money...

    I give up. You get the idea.

    LoBloKO on the John Scott segment, "He did not apologize for reading bare-faced propaganda as news. He apologized for the typo. He is a typo."

    The "bare-faced propaganda" is a portion of an accurate compilation of news reports from a variety of news organazations, put together and released by the Senate Republican Communications Center, that clearly lays out the timeline of how the stimulus bill grew from $56 Billion in late September 2008 to $775 Billion by mid December 2008, a 1400% increase in less than 90 days.

    Speaking only for myself, that was NEWS to me.

    John Scott and FOX News failed to disclose the source of the compilation at the time it aired. That is why Scott needed to apologize, not a typo.

    For Olbermann to ridicule someone else for reading "bare-faced propaganda as news" and for failing to apologize appropriately reminds me of the last time I visited the Twilight Zone through Alice's Looking Glass.

    He omitted completely Scott's explanation of how their staff researched and verified every fact and figure before it was presented. You know, kind of like The Opposite of how Keith operates.

    I finally admit it. Yes, Keith, BOR is going after your parent company because of you. It's all goes back to you. I'm serious here, no sarcasm. Immelt, Zucker, and Griffin have joined forces to allow MSNBC--and, by extension, NBC News--to deteriorate into the progressive-friendly network that it has become, with all standards and integrity flushed out. Because of you, Keith, the good people throughout NBC have a figurative band on their arm, and the band says "I work for Keith Olbermann." Len Berman, Chuck Scarborough, Lynda Baquero, John Marshall, Janice Huff, Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira, Billy Bush (Bush, Keith; Bush), Johnny Miller, Roger Maltbie, Dan Hicks, Mark Rolfing, Gary Koch, Al Trautwig, Jeff Rossen, Alex Witt, and all the people News 4 New York that I can't think of all have the Keith Olbermann cloud over their heads. And I wouldn't be surprised if some of the people I named are your friends. If so, that would be more deflating than your radical turn that you took a few years ago. I hate you, Keith. I really do. You hear that, "Countdown" staff? I hate him. I don't care if I said that already in this thread and in other threads. I hate him. He routinely insults my guy, Bill O'Reilly.
    I've run out of things to say.

    Now, *I* sound like an ideologue, don't I?

    Mike C,

    Don't know about anyone else, but you have my word that Johnny Miller, Roger Maltbie, Dan Hicks, Mark Rolfing and Gary Koch (you left out Murph) do not work for whatshizname.

    Uh oh, looks like we have another rip 'n' read embarrassment for the infamous deplorable one:

    http://tinyurl.com/alevqe

    This time he took his talking points from HuffPo, and what do you know? Once again he neglected to check the facts.

    Oops.

    I sure hope not, ramjet. Bob Murphy (no relation to the late Mets radio play-by-play announcer) slipped my mind. When I was at Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club last year for the PGA Tour's PODS Championship (renamed the Transitions Championship), I actually saw (from afar) Murph on the practice green talking to Paul Azinger. I forget exactly what he told him, but I remember him walking up to Paul and addressing him as "'Zinger."
    As for the other names I listed:
    News 4 New York (WNBC-TV): Len Berman (sports anchor), Chuck Scarborough (7PM anchor, 6PM/11PM co-anchor), Lynda Baquero (reporter), John Marshall (weekend meteorologist), Janice Huff (weekday meteorologist)
    "Today": Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira
    "Access Hollywood": Billy Bush
    NBC Sports: Al Trautwig
    MSNBC: Alex Witt (anchor)
    Jeff Rossen is all over the place at NBC, MSNBC, and WNBC, as far as I know.

    Al's also with MSG Network.

    "Stick a fork in Keith Olbermann. He's done."
    Oh, I wish that were true, Respectful Insolence. In that T-Points Memo I linked to, BOR brought up a sad point (via BillOReilly.com): "This is why Americans can no longer trust the stock market - it is not based on performance, it's based on cronyism." In this case, it's why we can't expect GE or NBC to do anything about Krazy Keith or the radical left bent of MSNBC. It's cronyism via ideology. Also, money.

    Oh man good read J$. Jeez what a mess. No he's WPitW, now he's BPitW, and this other guy is WPitW cause he's linked to Rupert. lol

    By this olbylogic anyone whoever got a paycheck from Rupert is WPitW, Pot meet Kettle.

    The transcript, which I should have just waited for instead of stressing myself with the video, is out. So, here is the full O'Reilly Attack.
    "The silver tonight, Bill-O the clown [Ding!], back to his obsession with my boss, a way of taking a shot at me. “In 2001, legendary GE boss Jack Welsh retired and Jeffrey Immelt took over. On his watch, GE stock has declined an astounding 75 percent, down more than 30 percent since the first of this year. I predicted GE would hit 10 dollars a share and last week it almost did. Immelt still has his job, even as millions of stock holders are getting hammered.”
    (with evil glee): Oh, Bill, didn't Rupert call you again and tell you to skip the stock quotes for a while? News Corp, the parent company of Bill-O's [Ding!] Fixed News [Ding!], announced it lost six billion 400 million dollars in the last quarter of last year, and it predicted a 30 percent drop in profits for the first half of this year, double Wall Street's estimate. News Corp's stock closed at 7.19 a share today, down about 66 percent from where it was last year.
    So Bill, you are saying the CEO of any company losing that much stock value that quickly should be fired? Rupert for you, line one."

    So, *that's* why we call him Low Blow KO (or LoBloKO). That attack was a collective kick to our equators. By the way, what was News Corp's highest stock price? And what was GE's? Can anyone answer that question. If News Corp's high was lower than GE's high, it can be said that GE had the bigger downfall than the eeevil News Corp. And in that case, Merkle for you, line two.

    Here is the unparsed Talking Points Memo that led to this low blow (parsed sentences surrounded by asterisks): http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,491009,00.html
    O'REILLY: "While the president and Congress try to figure out how to stop the recession, millions of American investors are refusing to put their money back into the stock market because they believe it is rigged.
    Some American companies are so corrupt, so poorly run, it is staggering. And often these companies are able to hide their misdeeds from the public, so we have no idea what's going on.
    Under President Bush, federal oversight on Wall Street simply did not exist. The president appointed people like SEC Chairman Christopher Cox, who had no interest in policing any financial wrongdoing.
    Add Cox's apathy to the gross incompetence of Democrats like Senator Chris Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank and the recipe for a meltdown was complete. You had a perfect storm whereby Wall Street crooks and fools ran wild.
    The best example "Talking Points" can give you is the General Electric Corporation, which we have been investigating for years, ever since GE allowed NBC News to be hijacked by dishonest far-left ideologues.
    *In 2001, legendary GE boss Jack Welch retired and Jeffrey Immelt took over.* *On his watch, GE stock has declined an astounding 75 percent, down more than 30 percent since the first of this year.* In addition, Immelt continued to do business with Iran, even as that country was sending roadside bombs into Iraq, killing and maiming thousands of human beings.
    Think about this: Every other American company refused to do business with the mullahs, but not Immelt. If your son or daughter or husband or wife had been killed or hurt by Iranian weapons, could you forgive the man?
    But Immelt has no shame, and even though GE continues to sink, his salary does not. GE stockholders pay Immelt about $20 million a year in compensation.
    A few months ago *I predicted GE would hit $10 a share, and last week it almost did.* *But Immelt still has his job, even as millions of stockholders are getting hammered.* The reason this guy has not been fired is that he has GE's board of directors in his pocket because he gives them lavish perks.
    This is why Americans can no longer trust the stock market. It is not based on performance; it is based on cronyism. There are thousands of Immelts running companies right now. CEOs who are ruining their operations while the stockholders lose billions.
    So while President Obama wants the taxpayers to bail out the economy, the gangsters on Wall Street are still held largely unaccountable. Yeah, the Senate passed the stimulus package Tuesday, but the public remains deeply suspicious.
    By the way, guess who appointed Jeffrey Immelt as one of his economic advisers? Hi, there, President Obama. And guess which network used its power to get President Obama elected? That would be NBC News, owned by General Electric.
    Does that sound like "change we can believe in"? Does that sound like transparency?
    And that's "The Memo.""

    Wow, that's a lot of information that was, once again, completely left out by Herr Olbermahn. What's this? Now he has a call on line three? Line four? Oh, the switchboard is lighting up.

    Greg Pollowitz at National Review Online has the last minute or so of Keithy's blue dress interview:

    Here were the last of Monkeymann's hard-hitting questions to Rep. Waters:
    -The detail that comes out of that letter from the attorney general of New York, Mr. Cuomo, that Bank of America was apparently—he believes at least as a result of the initial investigation he‘s conducted - was apparently complicit in awarding those bonuses out before, essentially to beat the merger, the beat the oversight.
    -Is that best left to the attorney general of one state or is that your purview?
    -Lastly, Congresswoman, Senator Snowe of Maine said today, she thinks that that executive pay cap that the president wanted, first 400,000, now half a million, is likely to be left out of the final version of the stimulus. Are you OK with that?
    -Congresswoman Maxine Waters—as always, it‘s been very illuminating. Thanks for some of your time tonight.

    It's always "illumninating" when you and your guest(s) completely agree with you.

    I had an instructor who stated "figures don't lie but liars do figure" well Bathtube boy must not have heared this. as far as the stock quotes on newscorp and GE. Here are the numbers GE high was 41.40 and now sells for about 12 dollars, Newscorp was 24.90 and now sells for 7.68 the new york times stock was going for 50.00 now you can get it for 4.40 so newscorp did not take as big a hit as NYT. not being interested in stocks it looks to me that GE investors took a bigger lose then newscorp. of course comparing these companies (Ge vs. Newscorp) is like comparing apples to oranges that why I compared Newscorp with the NYT. I not sure who it would worth comparing GE with. So again Bathtube boy cooks the books to to prove his point.

    Thanks, Dennis.
