    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004


    May 5, 2010
    Olbermann Defends Only Having Guests Who Agree with Him!

    Is it satire? MSNBC's idea of Comedy Gold? Or are they seriously trying to make Countdown's one-sided guest list a feature?!? Watch MSNBC's new promo, discuss, resolve, and then recap tonight's Hour of Spin.

    Here we go again - when all else fails, start dictating how he should run his show...

    In the words of Casey Kasem, FUCKIN' PONDEROUS, MAN! FUCKIN' PONDEROUS.

    TEA TIME: Attacks pilot for using common sense to find terrorists! Keith, just to help, the guy that smells like fertizler and is named "Assad" doesn't work for The Farm Leauge. I guess poltical correctness is more important than American lives being saved. Typical Bathtubboy.

    And now, we don't stop, till we reach the top!! It's time for America's Top 3 Worst Persons in the World Abstract.

    3. Pat Roberts and John Kyle for "Drill baby drill". Remember, oil is bad.

    2. Rupert Murdoch- For defending Lonesome Rhodes Beck. Adds pirate voice. And Olby, in another display of Chutzpa, brings up Becks ratings being 'down'. While Beck still rapes Olby's ass 3 to 1 at least in the demo.

    AND THE NUMBER 1 WORST PERSON... RUSHBO! For stuff about the terrorist being a democrat. Might not be a democrat, but he's more on Obama's side than normal Americans. And Keith, I'll believe Rush before you.

    Thanks for joining us and remember this is syvyn11, saying "Keep your feet on the ground, and keep your hands where I can see them"!

    GOODNIGHT AMERICA! I'm off to watch Criminal Minds and then SVU (gotta get my Mariska!)

    And Kierian Suckling? A more apporpitate name made fit for Countdown hasn't appeared. Where did Olby find him? At the protein swallow?

    my God wuss, if asking for an opinion equals dictating how he runs his show, then what exactly do you think this blog should be? Daily swoons over the greatness of Keith? Ya know, it sounds like you are trying to dictate how we run this blog. Please, grow up.

    Was that a serious promo? You've got to be kidding me...I thought it was a spoof or a joke. I noticed when the showed a full body shot of Keith they had to use a wide angle lens shot about 1/2 mile away to fit his pear shaped body into the shot.

    Note to Keith: Stop twittering 18 hours a day and hit the gym. In the immortal words of Dean Wormer (Animal House)..."Son, fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life."

    "Its and Old Idea repackaged in a new way" Keith Olbermann.

    Propaganda is an old Idea.

    RespectTheGreatGame.com

    No one is misunderstood Kieth. You are too afraid to debate a republican, conservative, or a libertarian. You're a liberal who enjoys posting his positions on the DailyKos, a site that also does not allow opposing viewpoints, and blocking twitter users who disagree with you. The posts on this site outlining your guests are 100% accurate. Again, no one is misunderstood, you, are quite simply, a mindless liberal who lacks the intelligence to approach reasonable debate. There's no need to defend your guest list, it's Ok Kieth. You represent the majority of the Democrat party...

    Haha, excuse me, Keith, that's K-E-I-T-H. Not sure how I pulled that off twice. Knowing Keith, if he ever posted here, he would mention my typos and dismiss everything I have ever said...

    It's Ok, I'm still sexy...

    Did anyone actually watch that promo, or did they just stop when they heard a few key words they could take out of context?

    Again, the guests he brings in are experts in their field (like former WH cabinet members or retired military officers or industry executives) to help determine whether or not he's right or wrong about what's going on in the news. He presents both sides of the issue, and he and his guest then work at determining who's right and who's wrong.

    There are times of bias like his SpecComms, but that's another subject entirely.

    Keith reminds me of this guy in the newsgroup rec.sports.pro-wrestling (don't laugh, it's some rough poltiical discussions there). His name is Chad, and he'll use any sort of puffery to puff himself up. His life is kinda depressing, so he makes himself feel better by telling everyone he's morally superior to everyone else.

    He (like Kieth) is a true believer. He likes to call me "Half foot hillbilly" due to my partial amputation. He's telling everyone who will listen that he's better than the rest of us because he's using Ubuntu Linux instead of Windows 7.

    But what both Keith and Chad want is validation. Both people want validation for their ideals. While Chad doesn't get any, Keith gets it from his legion of 'yes men'.

    Haha, MK, I've got it. You're just fucking with us, right? That's it isn't it? Just keeping the right sharp against the children who climbed out of the crib and are running loose on the MSNBC set.

    Haha, both sides of the issue! Who's right, and who's wrong! Ohhhhh, MKDAWUSS, you almost had us! There's no one alive who is that stupid, even liberals know that comment is total bullshit. Hahahahahaha, you're good. You're good...

    Keith always presents both sides of an issue....Keith's side and his liberal/Democratic guests' side.

    I think we have a strong contender for #1 lie of 2010:

    Olbermann describes show as "good" and "attractive"

    Probably 3 or 4 top 10 contenders in there.

    MKDAWUSS we're still waiting to hear the errors in J$'s graph from Monday, along with a lot of other things from you. Has anyone counted the amount of posts MKDAWUSS has ignored?

    Typical behavior. Go back under your rock.

    Dear MCDAWUSS,

    You made these exact same charges three posts ago and then like Olbermann ignored everything presented showing how you were wrong. Why is it you refuse to defend the rediculous statements you make? Again, let me make this challange to you:

    "I'll make you a deal, you link to just one clip of Olbermann giving a fair and accurate portrayal of a conservative viewpoint and I'll never again doubt you or Olbermann."

    Didn't watch the show tonight, but I am assuming he didn't touch the fact that Obama is the biggest recipient of money from British Petroleum in the history of U.S. politics. Am I correct, or did he attack the claim as being a vast right wing conspiracy?

    Has Keith ever had a MODERATE dem on?

    Soviet, I do recall Keith having the former White House press secretary on, Scott McClellan, but it was to promote his anti-Bush book release, in which they both just groped each other inappropriately over the same old liberal talking points from the Bush years (and previous when talking about Olbermann). Other than that, I've not come across anyone classified as a republican or moderate...

    I am also confused as to how only having bobbleheads on your show who agree with you is somehow a repackaging of an old idea. No legitimate news show, or even pundit/opinion show has ever operated this way. I suppose it is a repackaging of the B.S. that newspapers have been feeding us for centuries, but seeing as the industry is imploding, not so sure that's the concept you want to bring back.

    The oldest pundit shows I can think of are the original Crossfire and the The McLaughlin Group, both which debuted in the early 1980s. However, even those were centered on people with opposite political opinions yelling at one another. All Keith does is yell at the teleprompter about fascism when he isn't reinforcing his demented idea of American democracy with his lefty guests. Note how the guests who have a tendency of shooting him down tend to not make many future appearances. If he claims he is looking for the truth, it seems contradictory to ban the people who openly state he doesn't understand the story.

    And he certainly can't claim this is how Murrow operated his show. Remember, Murrow isn't famous for attacking McCarthy, he is famous for hosting a program where he allowed McCarthy to come on the air and defend his statements. Maybe if Keith provided a platform to respond for all of the conservatives he constantly smears and lies about, he might have slightly more credibility here. But even if you ignore his blatant liberal bias, he still doesn't come close to running a show similar to Murrow. Maybe Keith should elaborate on how his show is based on an old long-standing idea/tradition. I have absolutely no idea what previous format he was referencing.

    So let me get this straight.

    Ape Ruler: Okay liberal biased guest, the way I see it, is that 2+2=5. Am I wrong here?

    Liberal biased guest: No Ape Ruler you are 100% right. Of course it also could be construed that 1+3=5, but we're getting too technical here, and essentially your correct again oh Ape Ruler.

    Ape Ruler: Thank you to the great liberal biased guest.

    Like Ryder20 said.....You're good...

    HoneySmacks, it's been over a week since we last saw Dave Weigel on OlbyPlanet. Hmm...

    MKDAWUSS. When all else fails? What exactly has failed?

    The main thing that fails is Keith Olbermann's analogy, and that promo.

    Claim 1: He asks questions to find out if he's wildly incorrect about something....but he only asks liberal guests. The point still stands.

    Claim 2: "The point of the show is to illuminate, it is not to throw off heat, it is to throw off light". First off. That is a false choice. Unless he is admitting that he is incapable of having civil discourse with someone who isn't liberal. Furthermore...light comes from heat. The analogy sucks.

    Keith Olbermann....opponent of the Socratic method.

    ""Again, the guests he brings in are experts in their field""

    What field are Markos Moulitsas, Lawrence O'donnell, Chris Hayes, Richard Wolffe, and Dan Savage experts in?

    Even if they are experts, surely you are not suggesting that there are no conservative experts in the fields of health care, economics, foreign policy, immigration law etc. So, why doesn't he have any conservative experts on?


    ""He presents both sides of the issue, and he and his guest then work at determining who's right and who's wrong."" -MK

    Oh. Ok. I get it. Keith Olbermann isn't biased, he's just always right. And conservatives are always wrong.

    """There are times of bias like his SpecComms, but that's another subject entirely.""" -MK

    Why is that an entirely different subject? He uses his special comments, and worst person in the world segments to insult everyone he disagrees with, and there is absolutely no counterpoint whatsoever.

    He is free to call Scott Brown a "racist, reactionary....." and there is nobody to call him out on it. And then all his political guests are liberal, so he never has to answer for his insane rants.

    Keith Olbermann's antics are absolutely indefensible.

    Who was the guest that shot down Olbermann's weird scenario regarding the underwear bomber? If I recall correctly, Olbermann was attempting to state that the guy was an amateur and wussed out by not lighting the the fuse in the bathroom where he was more likely to succeed. Whoever Olbermann invited on for the story smacked that theory down immediately by saying his position within the plane was purposely planned and reinforced by his trainers due to the closer proximity to the the fuel tanks. I am pretty sure Olbermann's intent was to make it seem like this guy was either acting alone, or his terrorist bosses did a lousy job of training him, thus making him not a real threat. Olbermann had been plugging his new theory for several segments, only to have it ignored and shrugged off by the guest.

    Where in the hell does this guy come up these hypothetical scenarios he passes off as facts? It says a lot when even his lefty guests have to tell him he really sucked it up in his analysis.

    Answered my own question, the guest was Evan Kohlmann and the date was January 4. Looks like Mr. Kohlmann also made an appearance tonight, plus another one in March.

    Also thought I should post this video of Countdown terrorism expert Evan Kohlmann, blaming a nameless right-wing group for the NYC car bomb prior to the suspect being arrested.

    http://comments.realclearpolitics.com/read/42325/637173.html

    Seems to me like he would be the perfect guest to invite on to "illuminate" the true story. Somebody who makes baseless statements with no evidence obviously inspires valuable political conversation, right MK?

    This commercial was made by 'The Onion', right?

    I say the quality of this is not up to par with MSNBC's usual promos. I'm thinking it was done in a rush. It doesn't read like a promo so much as a refutation. I mean, it has a very defensive tone...like he's trying to prove something to someone...like something recently has got his goat and he's trying to defend himself. Gee, I wonder what that could possibly be...

    That would be impossible. At least until the WUSS quits defending the biggest adolescent of them all: Keith Olbermann.

    Does anyone remember the Palin Perjury story? Just asking...

    "Does anyone remember the Palin Perjury story? Just asking..."

    You mean that idiotic conspiracy theory he pulled off an anti-Palin blog? Yeah we saw that. Let me know when Dave Weigel comes back on.

    But I'll give you credit for this one. Unfortunately in the real world one doesn't indicate a trend.

    We're still waiting to find out what was wrong with J$'s graph from Monday.

    It's good to see you back after you were hiding under a rock for a while.

    No MKDAWUSS during "Deutsch-gate".

    No MKDAWUSS during this Palin perjury story.

    No MKDAWUSS during Olbermann's embarrassing comments on the Diamondbacks.

    No MKDAWUSS when Johnny Dollar was banned from Olbermann's Twitter account for no reason.

    But when it's time to take things out of context and tell us how to think MKDAWUSS is back in full force.

    A previous thread asked why Bill O never mentions olbertard by name
    this thread provides the answer

    But what both Keith and Chad want is validation. Both people want validation for their ideals. While Chad doesn't get any, Keith gets it from his legion of 'yes men'.

    Though I cant vouch for chad.

    He is free to call Scott Brown a "racist, reactionary....." and there is nobody to call him out on it. And then all his political guests are liberal, so he never has to answer for his insane rants.

    Keith Olbermann's antics are absolutely indefensible.


    Not a thing I can dispute with this post bobbytomale, and very well put, which is why it deserves a double post, although it's really sad how so many of his followers do come to his defense, even with the knowledge that they'll get slammed for their stupidity. They truly are blind followers that would leap to their deaths in defending their ape ruler.

    Keith is wildly incorrect most of the time, and just mildly incorrect the rest.

    Keith's promos, however dishonest they are, are far less dishonest than MR Maddow's. "Fairness is important"!!???!! MY F-ING ASS, just ask the guy from FAIR (ironic?) that she savaged with the typical MSNBC strawman arguments

    #5 story for tonight, Olbermann bitching about Sen. Leiberman and Brown's attempt to strip citizenship rights from terrorists. Yet again, he recycles the claim that Obama got more information from the suspect through protection of Miranda rights than Bush and Cheney ever did via waterboarding. Ezra Klein stops by to scratch his head regarding Republican's not putting Obama's TSA nominees up to a vote. Neither one seems to understand that Obama has a proven track record of nominating a bunch of marxist nuts for every position open, and perhaps the general public agrees with Republican attempts to stop any more of these goons from being on the public payroll. Mr. Klein's new proposal is to no longer require Congress to approve every single executive agency position which becomes open. So I guess violation of Miranda rights is the political scandal of the eyar, but actual separation of powers as listed in the Constitution "is just outdated".

    Then Mr. Klein and Bath Tub Boy completely twist the purpose of the citizenship bill away from its actual intent. Both seem to think the GOP senators are pushing it to PREVENT terrorism from occurring, but the actual purpose of the bill is to allow for more strict interrogation techniques once the CIA gets their hands on one of these Islamic fascists. In addition, they completely discounted the fact that non-citizens typically have a tougher time booking and boarding international flights. They also claim that this GOP over-response is the result of "one failed terrorist attack". Hmmmm... their short memories seem to be forgetting the Fort Hood shooter and the other Americans who have defected to the Middle East and declared war on us. I suppose if you think that Islam doesn't deserve any of the blame here, it makes sense to call all of these failed attacks separate and unrelated coincidences. Most Americans are smart enough to right through this facade.

    Jonathan Turley also made an appearance in #5 to explain that "taking up arms against the United States" is somehow different than loading a SUV full of explosives via the help of terrorist groups we are actively fighting in two different countries. Turns out Keith actually did do some of his homework by stating that SCOTUS has upheld the 1940 act which strips citizenship rights from those who take up arms against America. Turley can't openly admit that this is true, so instead he cites a bunch of federal circuit cases which have questioned the law. Mr. Turley, if this law is actually unconstitutional, than why has the Supreme Court upheld it upon review? You can't use a bunch of lower court hypotheticals to claim the law is invalid when the highest court in the country has deemed it legal. Is there a chance that SCOTUS might determine that the 1940 statute can't be applied to terrorist groups and should only work against uniformed armies of a single declared nation? Sure, but that hasn't happened yet, so it's dishonest to imply that the GOP senators were lying when they were merely citing actual law from the Supreme Court.

    Tea Time: So, now Anderson Cooper is a 'teabagger'? Okay, in a way he is. So what is it Keith? Do you want Anderson to 'teabag' you? Hey, were just talking about teabagging! Cause it was Cooper who used the term first.

    And somebody tell me why he says "Something for nothing" phrase? If there is a 'Something ffor nothing' crowd, it's the liberals.

    And Olby to bring up "decorum"? Really? ON FREAKING MSNBC? And I though Keith showed Chutzpa last night by Bashing Beck's ratings.

    No fancy comedy tonight, not in the mood, so just a straight WPITW abstract. Will someone please hand this off to Keith? He might tweet me as one of the worst.

    Bronze: Walter Fitpatric and some other guy for crazy birther story.

    Silver: Joe the Plumber: For admiting he doesn't want to run for office. And for getting on a republican party committee. I guess if you dare question King/God Obama, you lose the right to be part of the political system.

    GOLD: For Ref for the player who died.

    Another award winning countdown to no ratings.

    In #4 tonight, it looks like we have another guest in Edward R. Olbermann's dog house! After a two minute rant which basically mocked the editorial that Gov. Brewer sent to ESPN yesterday, Richard Justice of the Houston Chronicle immediately stated that baseball commissioner Bud Selig has absolutely discounted any chance that he will move the game. After bitch slapping Olbermann back, Mr. Justice explained that how Gov. Brewer was right about a boycott hurting all of the wrong people, ranging from the local economy to the actual workers at the ballpark on All-Star night.

    Olbermann, clearly annoyed by this dissent, instead attempted to yet again blame the players. Using the example of baseball manager Ozzie Guillen speaking out against any boycott, Olbermann seems annoyed that Hispanic players would rather assimilate in the American culture of keeping your mouth shut and working as opposed to ranting about perceived injustices to your race. How about that, the immigrants who came here legally and who are earning a nice paycheck through talent and hard work want to stay out of this political mess. Perhaps Olbermann should take a hint that some of the most successful hispanics are grateful that they ever had a chance to make it it big in America.

    I'm going to keep it short with segment #3, I can't bear to listen to Markos and Keith call the oil spill "Cheney's Katrina". As cute as Edward R. Olbermann thinks he is being with that new nickname, the oil well that blew was approved under Clinton and blew up under Obama's watch. However, we are to believe that it's Cheney's fault, the VP of the administration between the construction and the actual accident. Not surprised Markos acted as bobblehead for this segment.

    Same old crap for tea time tonight, Keith made another genitalia joke, something about how the tea party "hasn't swallowed their tongue regarding the terminology"

    Keith completely botched the pronunciation of the name of tea party member Melissa Cloutier. Most broadcasters realize that the name would clearly have a French origin and pronunciation, but Olbermann the great pulled out his hooked on phonics CD and said it "CLOUT-TIER". Clearly, a step above the rest. Remember the hissy fit he threw over Maddow's name? No double standard on Countdown.

    This is hilarious. First you all whine about how he only has guests who kiss his ass, now you mock him for having a guest who has a different perspective. Again, the ad at the top proves KO correct - the purpose of his guests is not to regurgitate and validate what he wants to hear, but to in fact, inform and verify - to find out whether or not KO is wrong about what he's reporting or what his take on the story is.

    You're trying to have it both ways.

    Boy, you sure served us.

    A little quote for you MKDAWUSS on dissenting opinion on Olbermann's show concerning "Palingate" from last week:

    Weigel: ...this doesn't seem to be a problem for her.

    Olby: Alright, well...uh...that's...that's...the correct answer is the answer we're looking for, not one that...that...might...just as a matter of theory please somebody who was involved in the show.

    Weigel: Ha Ha Ha

    ---

    Yeah, Olbermann seems really happy about that dissent. Nothing out of the ordinary there! Noooooo!

    Now I haven't seen this Richard Justice thing, but given Olbermann's track record of infrequent incidents like the one above and the fact that he NEVER has anyone of right-leaning persuasion on his show (which you OBVIOUSLY cannot deny), I'm thinking it most likely had the same tone. I wouldn't expect one as deluded as you to be a good judge though.

    MKDAWUSS, do you ever answer the questions you are asked?

    I guess I'll try again, and try to keep it shorter. You claim he has people on to "shed light"...why is the person "shedding light" never a conservative?


    I think I can field that question for you, Bobby. Because a conservative would offer a different opinion or give the issue a different angle than that of Heir Olbermann. In presenting this dissenting opinion, Keith would be at a loss and forced to respond intelligently thus exposing himself as the fraud we've known about all along.

    But Keith would never risk such embarrassment because his ego is too fragile. So he takes the coward approach and invites guests' that parrot his views. It is safe and doesn't allow for rational thought, debate or thinking on your feet. Just read the questions off a piece of paper or teleprompter and throw in a few "uh huh's" as the guest is speaking and you have yourself a nice, neat, safe, one sided point of view, liberal show where the host can say whatever he wants and no one will correct him. Because we all know what happens if anyone at MSNBC besmirches Bath Tub Boy.

    lol. Well Brad, I agree with you, but I'm more interested in hearing MK's response.


    For example. The current Arizona immigration law. Very controversial issue. There's experts on both sides of the debate. Polling shows that around 70% of Arizonans support the measure, and that the measure enjoys above 50% popularity levels across the nation as a whole.

    Has Keith given any airtime to someone who supports the law?

    MK, your argument would hold more weight if Edward R. Olbermann actually accepted the alternative theories that his lefty guests occasionally throw back at him. Even though Mr. Justice presented factual based evidence which shows that Bud Selig won't move the game, do you really think it will stop Olbermann from making similar claims tomorrow night? Of course it won't, he will continue pretending that MLB is actually contemplating moving the game, when the only media reporting on it are the same left-wing blogs echoing the same liberal editorial. Seriously, Countdown originally made the claim a week ago in a teaser for an upcoming segment. However, the segment NEVER came, it was just Olbermann pretending like baseball was mulling over a decision which didn't exist. Randomly inserting your opinion that baseball should move the game does not make it reality. The same goes to the Palin perjury mess last week. Olbermann will never admit he is wrong, he will just wait a few weeks, then resurrect the perjury accusation in an attempt to attack Palin.

    I just pulled the exact quote from my DVR that Mr. Justice opened with when Keith asked him whether Gov. Brewer is in some major trouble over this fiasco.

    "She should worry, but it looks like Bud Selig is going to dodge the bullet on this one. Right now, as we speak, Bud Selig does not plan on moving the game"

    Instead of accepting the fact that MLB won't move the game, Olbermann immediately jumped to unsubstantiated conspiracy theory #2, which is that there will be a plurality of all-stars or team owners who will refuse to attend the game should it stay in Arizona. As an expert of baseball, Olbermann should know that Bud Selig recently implemented a policy which fines and possibly even suspends players who sit out the game if they are chosen. Instead of acknowledging this, he changed topics and randomly threw out that there will be several players who would boycott the game if chosen. Has Derek Jeter ever insinuated he would boycott the 2011 all-star game? Of course he hasn't, so why even have this discussion? Is this the old tradition that Olbermann referenced in his new promos? Randomly throwing out baseless questions to see which ones stick enough to form a baseless theory? Isn't this exactly what the 9/11 truth movement does, start with a question and answer it themselves with shady facts?

    I won't sit here and pretend that Olbermann has never been exposed as a fraud by his lefty guests, but instead of actually accepting the truth, he usually descends into a spiral of denial and doesn't allow the guest to return for several weeks, if ever again. The basic premise of Countdown is inherently backwards. Instead of reporting the actual news, Olbermann instead comes up with a conclusion he likes. He then invites guests on who he knows won't shoot him down, thus making it seem like his unsubstantiated hypothetical is actual news. When you operate like this, eventually the foundation will begin to crack.

    So I went to see Iron Man 2 today. All three cable networks were represented. Former CNN personality Christiane Amanpour was there. Fox News host Bill O'Reilly was there. MSNBC just had their banner.

    Suck it Olbermann.

    It was a tough choice with a lot of good candidates but I voted for Olby.

    Olby got it wrong. It wasn't "Home Office" (the Judge Reighold film cited in the Daily Caller piece), but "HEAD OFFICE"! Also staring Eddie Albert and Jane Seymour.

    Olbermoronn's all-time best Countdown guest: Jackie Mason. Mason referred to Keith as a "schmuck" for having a WPITW. Funny, haven't seen Mister Mason on Countdown since.

    "Its and Old Idea repackaged in a new way" Keith Olbermann.

    Sounds like old fashion turd polishing to me.
