    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    October 26, 2009
    John Gibson Blasts Keith Olbermann and the Fox Haters!

    Listen and enjoy as Gibby again analyzes The War on Fox, and wonders if people who call Fox 'talk radio' have ever hard of some guy called Olbermann. And we haven't forgotten this week's Olbermann Week That Was: By the Numbers. We poured through the MSNBC online transcripts to see how much attention was paid to various stories over the past week and here are the results of our keyword searches:

    Bathtub Boy

    Notes: References to Iraq do not include Olbermann's ritual closing mantra.

    Who will Keith Olbermann attack tonight? Post your predictions here, and then recap use this space to recap The Hour of Spin. Comments are open!

    From the Gibby clip, the lefites still have to go back to "YOU GUYS ARE BIRTHERS!!!!!" to get attention.

    It seems the only people keeping 'birthers' alive at this point are Obama apologists.

    #5A: A Blue Suit Interview with a man who shares a hatred of Bill O'Reilly: Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). The public option is back!

    #5B: The P.O. celebration continued with Arianna Huffington.

    #4: Gingrich hating with Chris Hayes.

    #3: The "deeply twisted" Wolffe Man returned to talk about the latest in their guys' fight with FNC.

    #2: Worse was irrelevent. Worser was George Will. Blue blog source: Crooks & Liars. Worst was Rush Limbaugh. Likely blue blog source: Media Matters. Boss Olbermahn devoted three whole minutes to attacking and mocking Rush. Gotcha!

    #1: The first lady on Leno. Susie Essman dropped by to promote her book that I now want to fail miserably. Yes, it has everything to do with appearing on "Countdown."

    Olby and Susie yucked it up when Olby insinuated that GWBush and Condi Rice had a sexual relationship (tiddlywinks? Is that what they called it? wink wink)
    The discussion about Levi Johnston's genitals was very enlighting.
    Somewhere Ed Murrow weeps.

    I think the liberals are prematurely celebrating their "win" on the health care. I think it's going to bite them in the butt. It's not going to be the "wonder" they hope it will be.

    Quite frankly I was shocked that Olbermann was on tonight, and of course the gloating for the full hour, a lame mock of Coulter who is still way smarter than him, then all the hoo ha about Rush getting "Punked" Like that's Olbermann's way of trying to be with the "in" crowd.

    And who was that bloated assed lady on with him tonight? I thought he was told NOT to have his dates on the air? :)

    There will be no state opt-out public option. There are not the votes for it.

    The harder Keith pushes for the PO, the more calls I make and the more emails I write.

    I wonder just how many of those who vote FOR the health care bill will be around in 2010

    I sense a change coming soon

    Krazy Keith will continue name-calling
    Even though his ratings are falling
    It's the network of hate
    FoxNews will dominate
    (MS)NBC's caterwauling

    Due to President Obama's inability to make a decision, October has resulted in the highest US troop loss in Afghanistan since the war started eight years ago. When will Obama realize that his dithering is costing the lives of US soldiers? Their blood is on his hands.

    "Red Eye" had a "Fox News Alert" gag last night involving Keith Olbermann. Car chase footage was used to show Olby rushing back to the White House to get his Twister mat and baby oil that he left.

    It just occurred to me that I didn't need to write his full name.

    The transcript for last night is out. Brace yourself for #3:
    OLBERMANN: After admitting that the Bush administration essentially froze communication with and access by this network, former Bush White House press secretary, Dana Perino, feigns shock and awe over the Obama administration's pushback against Fixed News [Ding!].
    Meanwhile, Fixed News [Ding!] executive claims the White House admitted to a mistake and apologized to that network. The White House says it did nothing of the sort.
    Our third story in the COUNTDOWN, Fox Noise [Ding!] helps the Obama administration prove its point, as it just continues to make stuff up. First, faux [Ding!] outrage over a network pool interview with White House pay consultant, Kenneth Feinberg. Fox says it was excluded from the interview. The White House says Fox never asked to be included.
    Oddly enough, Fox wound up doing the interview anyway. Then, Fixed News [Ding!] V.P., Michael Clemente, told the Huffington Post that White House press secretary Gibbs had acknowledged a mistake was made in not including that network. A White House official then told TPM that Gibbs did not apologize.
    Meanwhile, Chris Wallace, on his Sunday show-making sure his program carved out some time to discuss the war on the White House-turned to former Bush White House press secretary Perino for her reaction.

    (Stop the transcript! He also turned to Mara Liasson, Bill Kristol, and Juan Williams. That's called balance, Sparky. Try it sometime.)

    DANA PERINO, FORMER BUSH WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: It was a coordinated, calculated attack. It was unbecoming. And if you look at some of the coverage of what mainstream media covers when, for example, somebody like a Hugo Chavez shuts down television stations, he calls them illegitimate.
    Now, I'm not suggesting that this White House believes that they are going to come over here and shut down Fox News. But they are defining a narrative in their first year. And it's going to be very hard to recover from it.
    OLBERMANN: Oh, God, is she full of crap [Ding!]!
    Ms. Perino, perhaps forgetting that she slipped [Ding!] and told the truth on "Cluster Fox [Ding!] and Friends" just last week about the Bush White House's track record with MSNBC.
    [BRIAN KILMEADE]: And not only did you not go after them, you gave them interviews, as did the president. You gave them all interviews. You read Ronald Reagan's diary...
    PERINO: Well, towards the end, we didn't do a lot with MSNBC.
    OLBERMANN: Let's turn to MSNBC political analyst, Richard Wolffe-also, senior strategist at Public Strategies, and author of "Renegade: the Making of a President."
    Richard, good evening.
    OLBERMANN: I'm trying to get the moral relativism here. This administration criticizes Fox. Therefore, on Fox, Obama is Hugo Chavez.
    And the previous one-let me read the list again. It cuts off MSNBC. It threatens NBC. It has its political party threaten to back out of a Tom Brokaw-moderated debate, if I'm not removed as a news anchor.
    It pays columnists to write pro-Bush columns in secret, plants questions and a fake reporter in its own news conferences. And Dana Perino thinks she was being patriotic.
    I'm missing something in the equation. What is it?
    WOLFFE: Yes. I wouldn't suggest that it's unbecoming. It's just not becoming.
    Let's just replay the tape, shall we. The big rupture between the Bush White House and NBC News was over this little thing that happened in Iraq, and specifically that NBC News correspondents-in particular, Richard Engel-were actually reporting just how bad the situation was over there. And the Bush White House at the time thought they were being pro-American and pro-troops by calling out a news division.
    So, the whole patriotism card ought to be familiar to Dana Perino.
    And on top of that, you know, NBC News then had the gall to describe the situation in Iraq just as the rest of the world was, that it was a civil war [Ding!].
    I mean, this stuff is not exactly the same as, I don't know, a death panel [Ding!] or something.
    OLBERMANN: The whole thing with the pool interview last week, when Fox claimed [Ding!] it had-and falsely [Ding!] claimed [Ding!]-it had been excluded.
    This is not Fox. Fox is usually wrong-I would say malevolent-but skilled. They don't make mistakes, and that was setting themselves up for ridicule.
    Are they off their game? Was it just a blip? Are they feeling a little bit more heat than they're letting on? Do we know?
    WOLFFE: Oh, I think this skill has no relationship to anything factual, actually, and that this-this little conundrum is working out, they think, pretty nicely for them. They see their numbers are up. The more outrageous [Ding!] they get, the less relationship they have with the truth [Ding!], their ratings still go up.
    So, as long as they're making money, who's to complain except, you know, the White House and rational people [Ding!]?
    OLBERMANN: Of course it doesn't-I mean, the ratings went up before this went back and forth with Obama, because as soon as Obama won, everybody who was scared [Ding!] of that ran over to Fox. I mean, there is a cart before the horse thing on this.
    WOLFFE: Right.
    OLBERMANN: But what's the-what's the White House endgame on this?
    What's the Fox endgame on this?
    If an executive admitted, as one did months ago, that it is the home of the opposition [Ding!], how can an operation then claim it is not just a political entity?
    WOLFFE: Well, what's interesting is the political entity they're carving out for themselves.
    I don't think the White House was right in describing them as the arm of the Republican Party [Ding!]. They're trying to set up something new as the voice of the disaffected independents who don't like Democrats, don't like Republicans.
    And look, I think they are setting themselves up for a faux [Ding!] campaign. You know, it's just one more marketing tool [Ding!] up Roger Ailes' rather large sleeve.
    OLBERMANN: Oh, thank goodness you said sleeve.
    The Obama administration, according to Ms. Perino, is setting a bad example for emerging democracies by being critical of Fox.
    What-when the Bush administration bought positive stories from Iraqi journalists for publication in Iraqi newspapers, what was that? A how-to course in how to start up a democracy?
    WOLFFE: Well, the democracy thing is something I love the best. Self-reflection, recollection has not always been the strength of the Bush administration.
    I just want to remind Dana Perino and all the rest of them, that there was this exchange early in the second term between Bush and this guy in Russia called Vladimir Putin. Bush was trying to teach Putin a lesson about how to deal with the press. He said, you can't go around intimidating them-quite rightly-cannot go shutting down the free press.
    Putin turned around back to Bush and said, "Well, how come you got rid of Dan Rather, then?"
    And you know something? When it comes down to it, Putin, Chavez-all of those dictators or, let's say, autocratic leaders-are more than adept at reading the news, interpreting the news and maybe seeing things that they want. And the Bush administration was just as forceful, if not more so, than anything we're seeing out of this White House.
    OLBERMANN: Amen. And Dan Rather is still on the air, and George Bush is doing $19 a ticket motivational speech ceremonies.
    Richard Wolffe of MSNBC, author of "Renegade," senior strategist at Public Strategies, thanks as always, Richard.
    WOLFFE: Thank you, Keith.

    I hope John Gibson broke this segment down on his radio show today.

    Hard proof that there will not be a public option in health care reform: Joe Lieberman will vote with republicans on a filibuster.

    Keith, put that in your donut hole and swallow it, whole!

    Sadly, Gibby did not break down #3. He played one lone clip from #5 and a clip of Michael Wolff going after FNC on "Hardball," but that was it.
    Meanwhile, it appears that Air America is turning against Misogynist Olby after his attack on Michelle Malkin a few weeks ago.

    So Olbermann was telling Huffington it was time for a victory lap last night regarding the public option and new developments today seem to show, once again, he was wrong.

    Oh well....Cankles is consistant.
