If you thought the big news from last night's Hour of Spin was Keith's pseudo-apology for his Rupert Murdoch quote, think again. It's what happened just before his weasly correction, where he makes the exact same mistake--lifting information from a blue blog without bothering to verify its accuracy.
The "apology" itself was pathetically limp attempt to blame a website (the one extensively quoted by Olbermann's blog, The Daily Kos) for the error:
Turns out SeekingAlpha.com got it wrong, Murdoch in fact said 'we've never been a company that tolerates fat.' SeekingAlpha.com has yet to correct or apologize for its mistakes, so we will.
That's nice, Olby. But how about apologizing for your own mistake: not even bothering to listen to the audio for yourself? Still, the supreme irony in all this is that just before this spineless self-serving apologia, Edward R Olbermann committed the exact same sin: lifting a story from a blue blog and presenting it as true, without bothering to fact-check or verify.
This time the blog source was Huffington Post, and to say that Keith did another "rip 'n' read" job would be like saying American Idol is an obscure tv show struggling to find its audience. You won't believe just how recklessly wrong Oralmann was until you read this meticulous blow-by-blow destruction from a physician/scientist who actually knows what he is talking about. A few quotes to whet your appetite:
To understand the full impact of Keith's pitiful performance, please read the entire article. It confirms everything we've been saying for years about Keith "Rip 'n' Read" Olbermann.
