Keith's Olbermann's manic, embarrassing diatribe of personal attacks and name-calling against Scott Brown has been widely denounced. But what about the truthfulness of Oralmann's harangue? A few have attempted a fact-check of Krazy Keith's polemic: Tommy Christopher rendered a split decision, but seemed to side with Olbermann on points. A commenter's detailed rebuttal finds far more Olbermann falsehoods than accuracies. But there is little disagreement about one key Olby assertion:
I said Mr. Brown was a supporter of violence against women and against politicians with whom he disagrees. Specifically, this past Sunday, when a man at a Brown rally shouted they should, quote, "shove a curling iron up Martha Coakley's butt," Brown responded by answering, "We can do this." Or, if that remark was unconnected to the shout, he never refuted, condemned, nor disassociated himself to the call for violence and even sexual assault.
Whatever you think about the other personal attacks in Olby's philippic, there is little room for doubt on this one:
Brown told reporters this morning that he didn't hear the remark, that it was "inappropriate" and that he would have "said something" had he heard it.
"This morning" refers to January 18. Two days later Keith Olbermann is still claiming that Brown "never disassociated himself" from the statement. That, dear reader, is Another Olbermann Lie.
We don't expect Edward R Olbermann to retract all of the disputed allegations in his tirade. The chances of that would be slim and none, given Keith's shoddy track record of correcting his many lies over the years. So we'll focus on this statement--one that nobody can defend.
Our challenge to Keith Olbermann: for once, man up. Grow a pair. Retract this lie tonight.
