There may have been a truce, but it never applied to Keith Olbermann lying. That's a constant as reliable as the rising sun, and sure enough he marked his return today by lifting a story from a blue blog, reporting it as fact without bothering to check, and then embellishing it with his own brand of reckless demagoguery. In other words, Another Olbermann Lie.
In his 'best persons' segment, he told the story of Nancy Genovese, arrested outside an air base taking pictures. Actual news reports, like Newsday, the Long Island Press, and the Southhampton Press, tell the straight story, one that would have been of no interest whatsoever to Oralmann. But the version he came up with was considerably juicier, and ripe for a gleeful attack on Fox. With the caption reading "as heard on tv", Olby cackled:
Proof that watching crazy man on tv will make you crazy... She apparently decided that the base was actually a secret FEMA detention camp. Do you know where she got that idea? From Glenn Beck. She says so on her myspace page.
Glenn Beck Fan, Highly Armed, Busted For Casing National Guard Base, Thinking It Was A "FEMA Camp"
Wait, there's more. Her myspace page also had a video from Glenn Beck. Yes, "a" video. It wasn't about FEMA camps. But wait, didn't Olby claim that she admitted, right on her myspace page, that Beck said the airbase was a FEMA camp? Yup, that's what he said. That's the part Olbermann made up. Her myspace page has been locked, but all of the blue blogs that scoured it beforehand came up with nothing regarding Glenn Beck's views on FEMA camps. Zero. Zip. Nada.
In fact, if she watched Beck on tv, as Monkeymann's caption claimed, and if what he said affected her beliefs, as he also claimed, then Keith has some more 'splainin' to do. Because on his tv show, Beck has debunked the FEMA camp theory--not once, not twice, but three times! See the appendix below for video of all three segments (not including a fourth with Ron Paul, who also rejected this conspiracy theory).
So let's see...Olbermann claims she acted based on what she heard on tv--without evidence. He says she decided the base was a FEMA camp--based on nothing more than empty speculation in a blue blog. He adds that she got the idea from Glenn Beck--also made up. Finally he asserts that she admits on her myspace page that Beck told her about FEMA camps--blatantly and utterly false. Back from vacation, Rip 'n' Read Olbermann lifts another story from a blue blog, doesn't bother to check facts, embellishes it with more fiction, and belches out another red-hot, steaming Olbermann Lie.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
