    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    June 25, 2009
    Olbermann Speaks, on the Subject of Michael Jackson

    Yes, the infamous deplorable one is on an hour early tonight, covering the death of Michael Jackson. So what better time for a stroll through the OlbyWatch archives, for a few choice quotes from Keith Oralmann on the subject of The King of Pop. These are all genuine by the way, taken straight from the transcripts:

    Is Michael Jackson nuts?...We turn as usual to our nightly recreation Michael Jackson puppet theater....

    Speaking of oddballs, Michael Jackson has something to say about what happened to him while he was under arrest....

    Michael Jackson. He has discovered a super secret conspiracy hatched by former associates to bankrupt the king of pop, it's hidden on the back of the Declaration of the Independence, too. All right, not the last part....

    And Michael Jackson is rolling up new records for weirdest conduct in the shortest period of time...

    Exclusively yours for the bidding, six--count them, six Michael Jackson Puppet Theatre stick puppets, the originals. No substitutes accepted here, please. There's Michael, the defendant, Mesereau, the lawyer--with the long hair--Sneddon, the cold man, Melville, the judge--yes, you don't recognize him--Bubbles, the monkey, and of course, the accessory, the comfy jammies. Each signed personally by me, and ripe for the picking, starting at the top of the hour on eBay....

    And snakes not the only ones hopping a plane in the near future. There's also Michael Jackson. That's a segue and an apt one it is...

    Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann: what a great choice to host Michael Jackson coverage! Recap tonight's Hour of Spin right here. Comments are open!

    RIP Michael

    Why couldn't it been Obly?

    I can't really fault Olbermann for using Michael Jackson as a punch line. It has been a national past time of most people for years. Olby should have done his research though. Jackson was one of the largest donners to the DNC for many years. I am sure if the DNC had a choice between Olby kicking the bucket and Jackson kicking the bucket, they would have chosen Olby.

    Factor, just remember this: It's not about left and right. It's about right and wrong.

    The man changed my life. He was the most exciting and talented entertainer we have ever seen. Love him or hate him, nobody, that is as in NOBODY, could do what he did when it pertained to music.

    Name 'em all: Sammy, JB, Prince, you name it, and they all paled in comparison to The Glove.

    Can't say I'm surprised though, as his downward trend started when he left the Jackson 5, and it almost seemed like he was on a death wish. Sad, but undeniably the most exciting, talented, and innovative performer we may see in our lifetime.

    Crosby, Sinatra, Elvis, The Beatle's and Michael Jackson. He was the last one left, and now he's gone.

    Very sad day for me, and hopefully he will be remembered for what he did on stage and not off. What the hell happened to him?!

    Tragic (his rise and fall), and of course something that the ape ruler hasn't a clue of. Olbermann doesn't have to say a word, because in him doing a memorial on Jackson is hypocritical enough. He'll make a memorial of a mixed up human seem all the more twisted, and it's another reason I am lucky that I wouldn't spend a second watching him.

    Michael, may you finally find the peace you longed for, and all your demons destroyed. RIP...


    lol that Access Hollywood guy Tony must been driving KO crazy with all the Twitter and Facebook talk.

    When it's Olby's turn to chime in how technology played a part in this " We've had cell phones ringing off the hook ".

    Does Keith own a rotary cell phone?

    Ha! It's all fun and games til someone loses a life, right Olby?

    Another Kos diary critical of KO, this one criticizing his coverage of Michael Jackson's death:

    Keith Olbermann where's the decency!

    Oh poor Keith. MJ dies, but yet he was still able to portray himself and Maureen as a victim of people throwing rocks. This idiot really can't take any criticism what's so ever.

    btw he only got 4 recommends and one suck up comment. He's losing his power over there.

    What a wonderful job of presenting a thoughtful, sincere, and up-close piece of journalism regarding the death and life of Michael Jackson.
    Thank you Geraldo Rivera!
    In comparison, Olbermann delivered a disjointed, rambling series of observations and rhetorical queries. An embarrasing excersize of 'winging it' through subject material of which he was not suited. His guests prattled on and Olby replied: "uh huh" over and over.
    The difference between Rivera and Olbermann was so completely and utterly obvious. Geraldo has the chops and the heart to completely rise to the occasion. Olbermann, outside of his element, didn't have a clue.
    How fortunate for FNC to have Geraldo within it's ranks!

    What the hell does that comment by Olbermann have to do with anything? Maureen's a friend and a widow ... and? Do you want a medal?

    Lost in the Michael Jackson commentary is something that upset me.

    Last night we all heaped shit on Olbermann for using the Sanford emails in such creepy and sophomoric way. Well, sad to say, Glen Beck did the same sort of thing and was equally creepy and sophomoric.

    (I am beginning to think that Mark Lavin is correct about Glen Beck)

    And how sad it is that we have come to a place where someone like Glen Beck on a national TV show can so easily use the name, Jesus, as an epithet. I can't imagine it being tolerated for any other religion.

    I watched Keith for 5 minutes and his stumbling and bumbling was embarassing. For crissakes he described Jackson's body as being covered by a white sheet. Put yourself in the body bag Keith, tag your toe, and zip it up. What a dolt. Keith has no talent to carry off covering a story without a teleprompter. Podunk USA would fire his ass for his inability to carry the story and herk and jerk around. Face it Keith, you are a no talent suck wad.

    I preface this by saying, got a complaint about me, go ahead. Diarize, comment, whatever (actually those first two are your only choices - there is no 'whatever'). There's a chance I'll ignore it, there's a chance I'll agree with it, but usually I'll respond to it and try to explain or at least address it. I'd say "Bring It On," but that doesn't necessarily have the same meaning it used to.

    However, be forewarned: you may be part of a plan to make it look like I'm under siege by the Left.

    Step 1: Trollish person writes over-the-top critical diary (in this case, on the Mark Sanford email reading).
    Step 2: Lots of defense of your undersigned diarist (thank ye).
    Step 3: RW website writes piece quoting this here site: "By Wednesday, even critics on the left said Olbermann had gone too far."

    Keith Olbermann's diary :: ::
    The site is the clownish NewsMax, which is basically in charge of putting up stuff for lesser RW sites to cut-and-paste.

    Please to enjoy:

    "Keith Olbermann made Rush Limbaugh look like Albert Schweitzer tonight on his program," wrote Larry Wohlgemuth on The Daily Kos site. "Have you no decency man?"

    Wohlgemuth made his dislike for Sanford plain, calling him "the worst of what the Republican Party has to offer and the antithesis of anything this country might need." Yet he lambasted Olbermann for not considering that Sanford's wife and children might well be watching his program.

    "It was the kind of childish and hurtful thing done by 12-and 13-year olds, and Olbermann should know better," he wrote.

    No, I ain't linking to these doggies.

    Again, no request for amnesty, agreement, criticism-free zones, or universal love is implied here. Just watch out: there's nothing better for the lunatic fringe when a Mark Sanford hits an iceberg, than to throw up some phony Liberal-on-Liberal-Violence sabotage chaff in front of the torpedos headed towards a Republican-In-Crisis.

    Right on. Geraldo made it upfront and personal. Like he truly knew the soul within the man. Great job. And yes, Geraldo does add a lot of personality to Fox. His honest passion with regards to humanizing big stories and larger than life people is a definite score for Fox.

    What the hell was that Kos response about? I think someone is really, really losing it.

    "Again, no request for amnesty, agreement, criticism-free zones, or universal love is implied here.

    Interesting! So now it's twice in one week that Keith has warned his Kos diarists that criticizing him is tantamount to succoring the enemy.

    Ahhh...for the good ole days... when the slightest hint of such reasoning from the Right was fodder for a ten minute diatribe replete with disdainfully intoned "Sirs" and appeals to the high calling of moral dissent.

    You remember those days don't you? Back before Obama and Iranian protestors, when the action of forthrightly supporting courageous critics, was important enough to risk any enemy's divisive attempt to propagandize such opposition.

    However, in Keith's case, if you're not enabling his corporate overlords to muzzle him via your criticism, you're giving aid and comfort to the terrorists...eh...conservatives.

    Different day, different playbook... and to expect any consistency at all from Mr. Olbermann, would be to imagine that he would again retire to his bathtub and quit a television show rather than to delve into the private life/affair of politician, let alone read their private correspondence on national television.

    It might mean that Olbermann himself would take heed of his own pattern of only featuring (using) conservative guests when they are critical of other conservatives or conservative positions.

    What sort of fantasy world do you live in to imagine these things, folks?

    You can't expect Keith Olbermann to act in any way other than the way that is consistent with his view of himself, and his view of his own whims, as being more important than any moral code, or any other ANYthing in the whole wide world.

    After Olbermann's latest post at kos, there is only two things to say....

    Enter the paranoid and hyperpartisan world of Keith Olbermann at your peril.

    Where's his propellor hat?

    It's hilarious watching the HACK stumble and bumble yesterday. When he is not reading from a script or a teleprompter he is totally out of his element. I watched for about 5 minutes as he was asking a reporter from the Apollo Theater a question about Jackson. It was so incoherent I didn't even understand the question. The reporter had a confused look on her face and totally ignored the question (probably because she couldn't understand it) and went off in another direction.

    And this is the top talent at MESSNBC...pathetic.

    KO is rather sensitive these days; he actually has to post his own diary. Is it an attempt to quell dissent or draw attention to himself to pump up ratings? I think it's driven by his thin skin and wanting to fight back at the recent criticism. However, he's getting a lot of negative comments. Two of my favs:


    "I watch your show; I enjoy your show. And your lack of humility isn't what bothers me (though it should bother you more than it apparently does), it's your growing thin-skinned sub-paranoia, your Lordly Man of The Left sense of entitlement...and your lip-smacking schadenfreude the other night over the mushy banalities of Sanford's goofy e-mail!"

    and

    "Are you kidding? Any time someone (think Bill O'Reilly) criticizes him, he has to defend himself lest his fragile (and huge) ego implodes.

    Not only that - and I think that's the point that's totally being missed in this diary and the comments - he does it to boost his ratings. Do you think that's not exactly what this diary is about?

    Look at me, Newsmax! I told those troll lefties exactly what I thought of them.

    It's a game. It's about ratings. And advertisers. And money.

    Edward R Murrow the second? Pffft. Hardly.

    The only thing apropos to this situation is that he definitely got the title of this diary right. He couldn't even be bothered to link to the original diary or the Newsmax story. That's "journalism"? No. That's having a tantrum and refusing to allow others to look at what really happened so they can make an informed opinion."


    The faithful who respond clearly don't have anything else to do. Diogenes2008 must sit at the computer 24 hours a day, just waiting for her hero to post. She's his shadow.

    By brad90956:
    And this is the top talent at MESSNBC...pathetic.

    No, this is the top, whiny, classless jackass at MSNBC. Keith undoubtedly demanded to cover this story because of it's size and scope. I have no doubt that Rachel Maddow is much more talented than Keith and she would have done a far superior job doing the live coverage. The ratings will bear out that Keith was awful. Keith thinks he is the buoy that keeps prime time MSNBC a float. Keith is instead the millstone around the neck of NBC that is plunging it in to the abyss. There are many liberals that could come in and take ratings away from BOR.

    Keith, you lose, you have lost, and you are a loser. ENOUGH!

    Keith came in third last night. CNN regained the breaking news leader title taking first. FNC was second.

    lol third place. That's earned him a bath.

    Bill'o I guess from yesterday, because of Jackson passin away..had his taking points where he went after the "left" in particular one cable station..and one host on that station that he didnt NAME but all know who he was talking about..

    there is a big difference between Bill Clitnon and anyone other politician cheating on his wife..he was POTUS and help our national security in his hands..BLACKmAIL!

    Andother big difference when confronted most of these men confess they dont lie about and wag their fingers at us..Clitnon and her husband were defiant that this was just some right wing plot to take him down..ITS JUST SEX! Hey I have any idea someone should make of of those pictures with KO with clothing that says "ItS JUST SEX" all ove it..

    FYI he also made fun of Michelle Bauchman..for complaning about the government wanting us to include our phone #'s but prove you an American cicitzen..LOL he thought that was outrageous

    Oh and he some gossip woman on talking about Jackson..and he asked her is it normal for a celb to have a "In House Doc" and if they do why? Such jounalism!

    Friday's WPitW!

    Bronze: Cynthia Davis- Rehash of free meal lie.
    Silver: Mort Kondrake- For daring saying Democrats allow cheating husbands
    Gold: Ann Coulter- For Tiller Death.

    I wish Ann would kick Olby in his teeth.

    Why Michael or Farrah and NOT OLBY?

    God must love fools!

    Bumping Maddow for a Jackson doc? That won't sit good.

    Worst (Gold) blue blog source: Oralmann's blog.
    Original video of Ann's "O'Reilly Factor" appearance can be found here. Some Fox quarantine *that* turned out to be. So, was he theatrically maudlin with indignation and outrage?

    And here is tonight's--it would have been last night's, but the show (recorded early in the afternoon ahead of Bill's flight to Switzerland to kick off his week-and-a-half vacation) was pre-empted--Talking Points Memo and Part 1 of the Top Story segment with Karl Rove. Part 2 was with Bernie Goldberg, and will hopefully be posted later at FOXNews.com. If they do post, I'll link to it here.
    I know Keith said he was dropping the hateful O'Reilly attacks, but I want to post these videos in case they lead to attacks.

    Top Story, Part 2 with Bernie Goldberg.

    I pickeup on something, I could not put my finger on it watching KO last night when he was doing his best to act like a major cable news chanel anchor.. there was a way he was making himself the center of the story..like it somehow he thought people want to know how he was feeling ..it kind of was about him and not MJ.

    Then it hit me, last about this time Tim Russert passed away and how KO went on and on about what he going through kind of forgeting the dead guy IM THE LIVING ONE so you should care about me more..and how he acted like he and Russert were best buddies, knowing all time he was trying to angle hiself into the Mett the Press Chair..

    So when some dies just worry about what KO is feeling, forget the dead person. And sit back and let KO explain how the person was so important to him..or maybe how he was important to the person that died.

    By the way, what Keith won't tell you is O'Reilly challenged Coulter on her jubilation over Tiller's murder.

    Well that would actually require Olbermann to take the time to do some actual reaseach to check for accuracey ..and we all know Olbermann does that on every single story he reads of the telapromater..

    With Keith Olbermann's kos posting yesterday,

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/6/26/746991/-How-To-Play-This-Site-Like-A-Three-Dollar-Banjo

    it is clear why and how he works. It is only the radical anti-America left's agenda that motivates him, leaving truth, fairness, objectivity and logic kicked to the side of the road as needed....

    So with that FACT well kown, allow me to come full circle on the analysis of Obama hypocrisy that has come about after the left's chief propagandist (Olbermann) went off the air yesterday. Last night, the typical, cynical Friday night press "dump," the Obama administration LEAKED the following:

    "Obama administration officials, fearing a battle with Congress that could stall plans to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, are crafting language for an executive order that would reassert presidential authority to incarcerate terrorism suspects indefinitely, according to three senior government officials with knowledge of White House deliberations.

    "Such an order would embrace claims by former president George W. Bush that certain people can be detained without trial for long periods under the laws of war."

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/26/AR2009062603361_pf.html

    It will be 2 days until Olbermann can bloviate again....WILL OLBERMANN HAVE A HABEAS CORPUS TOMB STONE once again Monday night? Will he report that Obama is continuing the very same policies of the Bush administration he himself once claimed were against our nation's values?......

    "Obama has essentially endorsed the detention policies of George Bush without the courtesy of apologizing for slandering him over the last two and a half years. Obama and his allies screeched endlessly about indefinite detentions, and not just in Gitmo, either. They specifically railed against the holding of terrorists without access to civil courts in military detention facilities around the world, specifically Bagram, but in general as well. Not even six months into his term of office, Obama realized that Bush had it right all along.

    "Did he even have the grace to admit that? No. Instead, the White House took the cowardly method of a late-Friday leak to let people know that Obama had adopted the Bush policy all over again. Barack Obama just appeared at a press conference this last Tuesday to discuss Iran, energy policy, and ObamaCare, where he could have told the national press that he had changed his mind on indefinite detention. Instead, he kept his mouth shut, and had his media staff whisper it into phones to a couple of White House favorites in the press.

    "It’s a shameful performance, and the measure of the man in charge."

    Yes it is....and Olbermann will ignore or excuse Obama's actions. Once again, the anti-American left is intellectually dishonest and hypocritical for their own selfish purposes. Shame.

    Night after night on this site during the height of the Iraq War, we argued over Bush's policies and Olbermann breathlessly pronounced judgement on how unAmerican it all was....Now? Is habeas corpus dead like it was under Bush?

    Keith Olbermann and the rest of the church of SNOBamessiah are dishonest, cynical and arrogant zealots prepared to DO ANYTHING for their political agenda. In the process, our country is being diminished and allowed to become vulnurable to both domestic and foreign threats.

    VERO POSSUMUS! WTF?

    Olbermann is now attack his Kos kids claiming that he is too important to the DNC to critique. Apparently Olbermann sees not hypocrisy in tacking Joy in Sanford’s miss deeds and the election fraud he and his media friends committed in covering up for John Edwards.

    Here is the latest proclamation from hight atop Rockafeller Center NYC,

    ( tell me if we had heard this line of attack again..and oddley enough it came from the same center KO broadcasts from, about 11 years ago...." the vast right wing conspiracey..")

    He is what at that web site that reads from every night in regards to the recent "negative" post about his on air antics..of course he blames it on you guessed some crazy right wing plot to soil his reputation among the nuts cases over there.

    http://www.dailykos.com/story/2009/6/26/746991/-How-To-Play-This-Site-Like-A-Three-Dollar-Banjo

    here is the text of what he wrote;

    "I preface this by saying, got a complaint about me, go ahead. Diarize, comment, whatever (actually those first two are your only choices - there is no 'whatever'). There's a chance I'll ignore it, there's a chance I'll agree with it, but usually I'll respond to it and try to explain or at least address it. I'd say "Bring It On," but that doesn't necessarily have the same meaning it used to.

    However, be forewarned: you may be part of a plan to make it look like I'm under siege by the Left.

    Step 1: Trollish person writes over-the-top critical diary (in this case, on the Mark Sanford email reading).
    Step 2: Lots of defense of your undersigned diarist (thank ye).
    Step 3: RW website writes piece quoting this here site: "By Wednesday, even critics on the left said Olbermann had gone too far."

    Keith Olbermann's diary :: ::
    The site is the clownish NewsMax, which is basically in charge of putting up stuff for lesser RW sites to cut-and-paste.

    Please to enjoy:

    "Keith Olbermann made Rush Limbaugh look like Albert Schweitzer tonight on his program," wrote Larry Wohlgemuth on The Daily Kos site. "Have you no decency man?"

    Wohlgemuth made his dislike for Sanford plain, calling him "the worst of what the Republican Party has to offer and the antithesis of anything this country might need." Yet he lambasted Olbermann for not considering that Sanford's wife and children might well be watching his program.

    "It was the kind of childish and hurtful thing done by 12-and 13-year olds, and Olbermann should know better," he wrote.

    No, I ain't linking to these doggies.

    Again, no request for amnesty, agreement, criticism-free zones, or universal love is implied here. Just watch out: there's nothing better for the lunatic fringe when a Mark Sanford hits an iceberg, than to throw up some phony Liberal-on-Liberal-Violence sabotage chaff in front of the torpedos headed towards a Republican-In-Crisis."

    So what he is saying "Listen Im not calling you people here stupid, but well you are so its up to me to explain you what the evil right wing is up to, I will be the one that shows the light on what they are up to you better listen to me..

    From a previous thread:
    ***By afotia1020 on June 27, 2009 1:37 PM
    OVER 760 HAVE COMMENTED:

    http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/fire-keith-olbermann

    The petition is accumulating an impressive amount of comments. I am, however, still adverse to it simply because I don't believe in the premise "Fire Keith.." . Keith is not likely to be fired.
    I would personally take the site more seriously, and add a comment myself, if the site owner would re-name it simply: " Keith Olbermann can KISS MY ASS". I think we can all agree on that premise.

    That petition is garbage and the person who wrote it is childish.

    What about "Keith Olbermann's contract should not be renewed"?

    Mike C., that would be an improvement.

    ***By cjflan32 on June 27, 2009 3:45 PM
    That petition is garbage and the person who wrote it is childish.

    That's a bit harsh. Sounds kind of like something Olbermann would say.

    Noel Sheppard of NewsBusters posted about King Olbermahn's Kos reprimand/Krazy Konspiracy Theory.

    I'll quote what Sheppard said because it gives me so much joy:
    ""In today's "Does His Ego Know No Bounds?" segment, Keith Olbermann warned Daily Kos readers on Friday that they should not post diaries or comments critical of him for it strengthens the Right.
    As NewsBusters Mitchell Blatt reported Friday, a diary was posted at Daily Kos on July 18 that bashed the "Countdown" host for just attacking Republicans and not doing any real news.
    Olbermann clearly was displeased, and posted a response that was two parts Narcissus and one part Norman Bates ...
    [Four paragraphs from Oralmann's missive shown here.]
    He really is a psychiatrist's dream, isn't he?
    After all, when you get passed the limitless vanity feebly attempting to mask the paranoid schizophrenia, Olbermann actually confirmed the original Kossack's complaint: all he does is Republican-bashing...even when he's defending being accused of such.
    Honestly, you can't make this stuff up.
    *****Update: It's interesting to note that Olbermann referred to his critic as a troll. Yet, a close look at kwolfman's previous diaries shows him to be your basic Kossack who hates Glenn Beck, hates Dick Cheney, hates Sarah Palin, and hates George Bush.
    Such a person would certainly be considered a troll at NewsBusters, but this makes up the overwhelming majority of Kossacks INCLUDING Keith Olbermann.
    As is typically the case, Olbermann was making accusations without knowing the facts.
    But that's not at all surprising.""

    "He is mentally challenged and should be fired, contained in a mental institution and forced to watch repeats of The O'Reilly Factor and Hannity & Colmes every hour of the day for the rest of his pathetic life."

    Sounds like something a d*** would say. The entire petition overview is ridiculous, full of personal insults and no logical reasoning with proof to show why he should be fired. "He's crazy", well some people think O'Reilly and Beck are too so let's get them fired and put in a mental institution also.

    Oh, and that petition has gained no steam whatsoever. Only 762 signatures in seven months, terrible. That petition to have Bill O taken off the IHTAF speaker list got more signatures.

    The obligatory KO suck-up diary has been added at Kos. When KO's not feeling the love he runs there, cries, and they must pacify the ego. And, of course, dissent is discouraged on Daily Kos. Warning: Don't read it while you're eating.

    He is so pathetic, this just shows he has no FAITH even in people that have had his back for years just because a few so called naeagtive post. Now if he were truely "smart" he would read those neagative post and understand what they are saying they might actually help him. Instread he does the complete opposite can does everything he shouldnd't

    The "suck-up" diary that ktt linked to is interesting in that the comments below it contain a healthy dose of disenchantment and critisizm of Olby.
    Example:
    Worst Person in the World
    This is among my least favorite segments of the show, and last Friday's installment was, I think, the worst yet. The "bronze" went to Rep. Cynthia Davis, the woman who's been objecting to a program to feed needy children over the summer and suggesting that "hunger is a good motivator" for young people to find employment.

    Okay, fine, she certainly deserves the criticism she's been receiving on the show. But this segment went further. Carefully noting that "we can't verify this", Olbermann quoted an anonymous post on a Kansas City Star web site message board, someone identified only as "Embarrassed in..." He read the following accusation on the air:

    "Cynthia forgets how she takes multiple plates of food from committee and lobbyist dinners to feed her hungry children when she is in Jefferson City. She has been observed at receptions wrapping and stuffing food in her oversized handbag. Maybe that's what other hungry children should have their poor working parents do -- just steal food to bring home to them."

    Does saying "we can't verify this" excuse the use of an unsourced anonymous message board posting? Forget apologizing for the Sanford e-mail skit, I think Keith should be apologizing for this stunt, which I think is a lot more serious a matter than simple bad taste.

    Good catch ObserverDan. I guess the moral of the story is you can't defend the indefensible.

    It's time for the latest Fox Haters Week in Review!

    Our sudden good friend Noel Sheppard has written about the suck-up diary.

    Mike C.,

    As far as the first link we have to say thanks to reporters like Johnny $. Exposing the shit to the sunlight.

    As far as the second link I'll have to get back to you after I run to the john and barf.

    We will all be able to see, (considering what some at kos believe is Olbermann's "objective and unbiased" persona), if Olbermann is equally aghast and vicious against one of his fellow elilist metrosexual New Yorkers who displayed hypocritical and sexist attitudes in reaction to the Sanford story:

    "'I didn't fall in love with any of them,' Spitzer was overheard telling LMDC executive director Avi Schick the other day at Solo in the Sony Building on Madison."

    ###
    Oh boy. Will Olbermann take valuable COUNTDOWN time to be fair and balanced in presenting negative spew against a fellow effete leftist after all the time he raked Governor Sanford over the burning coals?

    We shall see.

    VERO POSSUMUS! WTF?

    Will Olby cover this story tonight:

    Reporting from Washington -- In a decision that could fuel controversy over Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor, the high court this month is expected to overrule one of her key appellate court rulings.

    Sotomayor was part of a three-judge panel that, in a two-paragraph opinion, rejected an appeal by white firefighters from New Haven., Conn., who contended that they were victims of racial discrimination when they were denied promotions. They had scored well on a test, but the city decided against using the scores because it feared it might be sued since the results meant no blacks would be promoted.

    ****************************

    The Supreme Court REVERSED Sotomayor's ruling today. Will KO blame it on a "vast right wing conspiracy????

    >The Supreme Court REVERSED Sotomayor's ruling today.
    Boo-yah! In celebration, I would like to recommend Sally's Apizza (not a typo) to anyone visiting New Haven. I haven't been there yet, but I've heard so much about it.

    Olbermann will conduct an echo interview with someone of the opinion that it is not unusual for SCOTUS nominees, who have served on Federal Appeals, to be reversed, even while being confirmed (or close to that time)....Roberts and Alito will be mentioned as proof that this is not a story (thanks to the MEDIA MATTERS).

    http://mediamatters.org/research/200906290013

    Of course, this lefty blog source will be copied and repeated ad nauseum.

    The difference here, that Olbermann will ignore, is that 2/3 of Americans agree with the 5 on SCOTUS that believe the firefighters were wronged....That political implication of Obama's pick siding with reverse discrimination should be exploited.

    Also, the entire panel felt summary dismissal was WRONG and that puts Sotomayor's competency as a jurist in real question. Olbermann will ignore that fact as well.

    There should have been a trial to look at the facts of the case, but Sotomayor and the rest of the appeals panel decided to just dismiss the appeal....that was bad.

    Again....amateur hour in the Obama White House....excused by the MSM and especially by Olbermann....

    VERO POSSUMUS! WTF?

    One of Keithee's fibs made the liberal St. Pete paper's "Politifact".

    He flunked their "TRUTH-O-METER"....surprised?

    Keith Olbermann and the 'top secret' Tweet

    By Robert Farley

    Once again, U.S. Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., is embroiled in a twitterversy.

    It centers on his Tweet likening the messages of disgruntled Republicans during a congressional squabble with the messages from bloodied Iranian protesters who say they were disenfranchised.

    Keith Olbermann, host of MSNBC's Countdown, noted on June 18, 2009, that this wasn't Hoekstra's first Twitter controversy.

    "This would be the same congressman who last year Tweeted the whereabouts of a top secret mission to Iraq," Olbermann said.

    Hoekstra did in fact Tweet from a congressional delegation's trip to Iraq, which some have argued could have jeopardized the group's safety, but we find that Olbermann went over the top when he called it the trip a "top secret mission."
