    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    October 14, 2009
    A New Entry in Keith Olbermann's Misogyny Hall of Shame

    Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly book Culture Warrior

    On Tuesday night's Hour of Spin, the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann did it again. In attacking Michelle Malkin, the new Edward R Murrow once more indulged his diseased psyche to unleash demeaning, personal invectives against women, referring to Ms Malkin as a "big mashed-up bag of meat with lipstick on it". This is what passes for journalism on today's Peacock air. It has not gone unnoticed. Inside Cable News said "Yuck!" and noted:

    Um, what's the difference between this attack and the "Ho-Pas" incident, which Olbermann subsequently apologized for even though he had nothing to do with that incident?

    Liberal blogger Tommy Christopher, writing at mediaite (a website run by MSNBC legal analyst Dan Abrams), was also taken aback:

    [Malkin] is not known for parsing her words, either. None of this, however, explains why Keith Olbermann would refer to her in such dehumanizing terms, even as he's decrying that exact behavior.

    All this is nothing new. Olbermann's Misogyny Hall of Shame has been adding exhibits for years:

    • Olbermann deplorably mistreated Suzy Kolber at ESPN driving her to tears
    • referred to Lindsay Lohan's mother as a "bag"
    • smashed an Ann Coulter doll to pieces while cackling maniacally
    • made vulgar comments about "slut" Paris Hilton
    • demeaningly referred to Melana Trump and Nic Cage's wife as "child brides"
    • obsessively stalked basketball player Rebecca Lobo
    • mocked Michelle Malkin's ethnicity
    • said Sharon Stone is "old" and "past her prime"
    • called Ann Coulter a "horse" and made a vulgar reference to "Ann Coulter's c###"
    • sneered that Angelina Jolie is "desperate" and "going for the ring"
    • said Hillary Clinton should be beaten to death
    • said of his colleague Rita Cosby: she's "dumber than a suitcase of rocks"
    • laughed and joined in on a gross, creepy attack on Carrie Prejean

    Even Olbermann's progressive allies recognize that there is a septic streak in Keith's soul when it comes to the opposite sex. summed it up well:

    So, to Keith Olbermann, who will be sternly moralizing into the camera for at least another four years, I have this to say: There is no excuse for how irresponsibly you are using your position of influence. The fact that you are a petty, disrespectful misogynist discredits you. You are not a progressive and you never will be, unless you drastically alter your attitude toward women. All of the brutally honest political criticism in the world does not make up for the shallow, sexist tripe you use to boost ratings. You, sir, are no Edward R. Murrow.

    Is there any recourse for Keith Olbermann's many victims, male and female? Broadcasters have been censured, even fired, for much less. Yet Olby seems to be impervious to the standards that are applied to everybody else. Why not start fighting back? The first step might be to contact MSNBC and their news honchos to express outrage and request than an apology be made. But why stop there? What if Olbermann's victims demanded that they be given equal time--on Countdown, with Olbermann (not one of his stand-ins) present--to answer to the smears? Being allowed to face one's accusers is the American way. Every request to MSNBC, Countdown, and Olbermann should be made public. Every response should be published as well. Transparency.

    What are the chances that Malkin, or anyone else who is a victim of Edward R Olbermann's vile hatred, would be permitted to face him on Peacock air and have it out? Slim and none--and Slim just left town. But seeing all the demands, responses, and rejections published online would make the effort worthwhile. All the world would know how morally corrupt MSNBC's news operation is. And as for Keith Olbermann? His cowardice and refusal to have on guests with opposing viewpoints--especially people he has viciously smeared--would be another vivid demonstration that he is more than just a misogynist. He's also a sissy.

    Discuss, resolve, and then use this thread to recap tonight's unapologetic Hour of Spin. Comments are open!

    Keiths misogyny strikes like pornography. You know it when you see it. Keith's tirade against Malkin had that immediate impact on me. Wow, I thought. Only from the mind of Keith Olbermann! Will he apologize? HAR! Not a freakin chance.
    Similar topic; Today, Chris Matthews actually came out and apologized for a remark he made yesterday about Rush Limbaugh. Something about in a 'James Bond-type world, Limbaugh would be the bloated evil guy who, in the end of the movie, gets shot in the head (with a CO2 pellet?). Anyway, Matthews got called out on it and he apologized. Good move, CM.

    Don't forget KO's comment about Hillary Clinton during the long 2008 Democratic primary: "Somebody who can take her into a room and only he comes out."

    Read more at:

    I'm going to go out on a limb and predict that we're going to get an apology tonight (albeit a lame one).

    If I'm right, someone owes me a beer. If I'm wrong, I guess I'll have to punch myself in the face for being so stupid.

    J$-- Don't forget Olbermann's penchant for using terms like "news actress" and "news model" when referring to female reporters who work for Fox News.

    Can you imagine the hell that would break loose if O'Reilly called Contessa Brewer a news model?

    Olby's at (MS)NBC
    (That's the place for misogyny)
    Where the peacock flies
    And Olby denies
    So he's back for more therapy

    So I take it there's no woman's group protesting outside 30 Rock on this one. If so some would say it's because of Malkins politics, but I think the real reason is no was watching Countdown.

    It's like the old saying " If a tree fell down in the woods and no one was there did it make a sound?"

    Bathtub Boy is clearing a forest in Olbyland, population him.

    If this were a right and just world, every actress and female newsreader that worked at NBC/Universal should walk out for one day in protest.

    If these entertainment people do not stand for their fellow women in solidarity by telling their network that it's time for Olby to shut the F%$& UP, then they are all guilty by association!

    Even my Goddess, Mariska Hargitay.

    Time to stand up, cause if Olby can get away with it with conservative women, one day, he'll get away with much worse with NBC Talent.

    Sissypants misogynist Olby strikes again! Karma bites, FatAss. Is Little Katy still on the road being a Weather Girl (it's raining men, hallelujah!) or is she back home where you can babysit her?

    MSNBC is so trivial that my cable company dropped it on its standard tier. I keep hoping that the rumors of Fox buying NBCU come true. Revenge is ours, FatAss!


    A FNC superfecta. Beck, Bill-o, Brit Hume and someone else.

    Who gives a sh!t.

    And to now Olby rips off J$ by listing how many times Beck has said certain words.

    OLBY! You owe Johnny Dollar a dollar! Pay up!

    Nice to see Olby has his orders from the white house in the "war against FNC".

    Another award winning countdown to no ratings.

    The only thing that can get me to watch Countdown: Monty Python. I love Monty Python. But why do they have to be on with Keith? It was great until they applauded him for "what he does" whatever the heck THAT means. And, Oh Dear Lord, Keithy looks FAT on that stool. WOW!

    And once again OW's resident coward/troll is nowhere in sight to defend his favorite commentator. Your mother must be so proud.

    Terry Gilliam of Monty Python ( and native of my hometown, Saint Paul) gave Olby a good parting shot. "He looks much skinnier on TV" Olby turned redfaced and handed the show off to Maddow.

    KO reminded me of Eddie Izzard, who back in 98 in Aspen took the stage like he was one of the troupe and they looked at him like, "WTF are you doing up here?"

    The best line of the night was when he said the possible last episode of Countdown! I was like..."oooh christmas came early."

    #5A: Far-left bomb thrower Olbermann met his match: Rep. Alan "Die Quickly" Grayson (D-FL). A Blue Suit Interview (it's only "Blue Dress" to me when a female politician is on) ensued. Public Option! [Ding!]

    #5B: Fineman.

    #4: Dr. Mehmet Oz! No!!! You have no credibility now, sir.

    #3: Ha-ha! The Tea Party people turned against Lindsey Graham! Ha-ha!

    #2: Worsts (I'm sick of calling it the Media Matters Minute). Worse was irrelevent to me. Worser was Another O'Reilly Attack mixed with a Hume Attack. Blue blog source: Think Propaganda. The original source was Monday's Top Story segment.
    Worst was Another Beck Attack. Blue blog source: Politico. Lonesome Rhodes! [Ding!]

    #1: Speaking of no credibility now, three Monty Python guys.

    syvyn11 said: "And to now Olby rips off J$ by listing how many times Beck has said certain words."

    I see KO still reads Olbermann Watch! HA!

    Re: #2 Worsts--O'Reilly/Hume attack:

    Let's try that link again.

    One more time:

    I've got to work on my tinyurl. :-|

    I'm sorry everyone, my links leads to O'Reilly's Talking Points memo. It is unable to lead directly to OBill's interview with Brit Hume, so to go there, from the link, click on "Politics", and then the second video down on the list.

    Thanks, Mike C.

    I missed the website that appeared on one of the threads here a week or two ago showing how to do the link the way that you do it as well as writing a word and have a line over it. Would you please provide a link to that websie?

    My last word of my previous post: --website--.

    Is Kqeef trying to lighten up from all the hate by having The Python over?

    BTW They all looked cooked and didn't let Kqeef have any...

    Thank you, Mike C.

    OK here are the top 10 REAL quotes from people who are not Rush. From this source:


    10. Democrat Fritz Hollings of South Carolina thinks being from Africa makes you a cannibal: “You’d find these potentates from down in Africa, you know, rather than eating each other, they’d just come up and get a good square meal in Geneva.”

    9. Howard Dean reaches out: “I still want to be the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks.”

    8. California Democrat Diane Watson thinks interracial marriage is icky: “He’s married to a white woman. He wants to be white. He wants a colorless society. He has no ethnic pride. He doesn’t want to be black.”

    7. Howard Dean thinks service positions are for minorities, not big fancy white people: “You think the Republican National Committee could get this many people of color in a single room? … Only if they had the hotel staff in here.”

    6. Joe Biden explains why southern Democrats should vote for him: “My state was a slave state.”

    5. “Conscience of the Senate” and former Klansman Robert Byrd on equal opportunity: “I’ve seen a lot of white n*ggers in my time.

    4. Hillary Clinton does an impression (complete with accent) of an African-American man who didn’t know what Emily’s List was: “She’s supportin’ all these people. She’s supportin’ Sen. Dianne Feinstein . She’s supported Sen. Barbara Boxer . . . She supported everybody. Why won’t she support me?”

    3. Democratic Mayor of New Orleans Ray Nagin denies that white people might live in New Orleans: “I don’t care what people are saying Uptown or wherever they are. This city will be chocolate at the end of the day.”"

    2. Democrat Steny Hoyer reviews Michael Steele’s career: “[He has] a career of slavishly supporting the Republican Party.”

    1. Then Senator Joe Biden fills us in on who works at convenience stores: “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent … I’m not joking.”

    As you can all see the wacko left can make racist statements and not be called to the mat for it! Again the Hypocrisy is just amazing and sadly, very typical!

    Too late syvyn11, because as johnny dollar points out in his excellent writeup above, he already has:

    •said of his colleague Rita Cosby: she's "dumber than a suitcase of rocks"

    But, then again, Keithy would say that Cosby deserved it because she came from Fox, where they only hire "news actresses" and "news models".

    Oh, and let's not forget what he did to one of his former colleagues at ESPN, Suzy Kolber:

    •Olbermann deplorably mistreated Suzy Kolber at ESPN driving her to tears

    Reading some of those links in dollar's write up above has shown beyond a shadow of a doubt that Keithy had "jumped the shark" so many times in the past, that he must be untouchable, otherwise, he would have been gone by now. Welcome to the corporate world of GE, where the ends justify the means.

    I find it very interesting that the party that rails on the greed of corporate America, stands idle while GE looks to profit under that same said party: Democrats.

    "And once again OW's resident coward/troll is nowhere in sight to defend his favorite commentator. Your mother must be so proud."

    Well, maybe that shows that MikeHee has at least some brains, because even stupid people know you can't defend what Keithy said about Malkin.

    However, what is really telling about this site's lone olbyloon, is that he doesn't come here and condemn Keithy for his rank mysogyny. And we all know which side of the political isle MikeHee is on. The side that supposedly "champions" women's rights.

    MikeHee, a hypocrite? Look to his hero Keithy, for clues.

    flindycon, I meant someone outside of the news division. You'd think that Zucker would defend Keith if he said something close to "mashed up meat bag" towards Tina Fey? Or (as I stated before) Mariska Hargitay? Both of those ladies are two of the highest paid actresses on NBC, if you don't think they would have the juice to end Olbermann, you are crazier than I am.

    And that's crazy.

    From WPitW, via the transcript:
    "... Runners up, Bill-O the Clown [Ding!] and Brit Hume of Fixed News [Ding!]. Said Bill-O [Ding!], quote [Ding!], (Ted Baxter voice): 'when President Bush was in trouble in Iraq, this network and this program, and your program as well, routinely hammered President Bush on Iraq.' Said Hume, (mock Hume voice): 'we were very faithful about covering all the bad news coming out of Iraq.' Said Bill-O [Ding!], (Baxter): 'there was no cheerleading.'
    Which universe was this in, again? Hume said President Bush had put America on an amazing foreign policy path. He said this last year. O'Reilly said that the only reason news organizations were covering bad news from Iraq was, quote [Ding!], (Baxter): 'because they want to embarrass the Bush administration. Do you care if another bomb went off in Tikrit? There's little news value in broadcasting daily bombings.'
    He said that two years ago.
    But our winner, Lonesome Rhodes [Ding!] Beck. This is terrific stuff. He installed a red phone on his set, supposedly so the White House could call and complain about Fox News, since it is, in his words, quote, (soft mock Beck voice): 'more worried about the war on Fox than the actual war in Afghanistan.'
    Ben Smith at thought he'd find out how often Beck was more worried about the actual war in Afghanistan. He did a Nexus search of Beck's scripts since Beck went on Fox in January; 97 Beck references to Afghanistan, 38 more to the Taliban, compared to Marxism 127 references, community organizers 167, the SEIU 259, liberals 272, communists 330, socialists 404, Czars 533, and Acorn 1,224 references.
    That's 135 Beck references to Afghanistan and the Taliban, and just 3,316 Beck references to Acorn and other sleazebag smears on the president and his supporters. So exactly who is more worried about the war on Fox than the actual war in Afghanistan? Lonesome Rhodes [Ding!] Beck, that's who, today's worst person in the world."

    So, don't just direct your ire at Olby for ripping off Johnny. Direct it also at Sir Ben Smith of Politico, a friend of NBC, whose contributors appear on MSNBC regularly. (Note for newcomers: I knight certain people if they are used as a source by the far-left, are heroes of the far-left, or are just on the far-left. Examples: Dame Joan Walsh, Sir Markos Moultisas.)
