    Who's Lying? CNN, or Keith Olbermann?

    Bathtub Boy

    No sooner had Larry King announced that his iconic interview program on CNN was coming to an end, when the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann immediately injected himself into the story. Why he and Larry were best buds, and King was so enamored of Herr Olbermahn's baseball card collection superb analytical skills that he embarked on an eight-year campaign to convince Jon Klein to hire Olby as the lead-in to Larry King Live:

    Larry King is a lovely, generous man who tried, for eight years, to convince his bosses to hire me to be his 8 PM lead-in at CNN.

    Now it's odd that a crusade to sign Oralmann that ran for eight years never seemed to make any news during that time. It must have been the best-kept secret since the development of the atomic bomb. And never mind that Krazy Keith was more than willing to ridicule his good friend Larry King on air, when he thought his credulous viewership would enjoy a laugh at King's expense:

    During a full hour with Larry King, Hello, Miss Hilton sent the nation into a premature slumber and turned out the light. The good news, Mr. King did not confuse Miss Hilton with any of the other Beatles and did not refer to her as George Hamilton.

    Yeah, we're sure that's exactly the sort of "journalism" Larry wanted leading into his hour. The latest development: CNN's Jon Klein has weighed in on Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann's astonishing claim that Larry King spent eight years lobbying for CNN to hire Olby. Mediaite's Steve Krakauer asked a simple, direct question about Olbermann's claim: "Is it true"? Jon Klein's response:

    Klein: Larry's got a million ideas a day.

    Say what? According to Keith, this was Larry's eight-year-long campaign: hire Olbermann! But CNN's President paints it as something completely different--just one of millions of ideas Larry tossed out over his 25 years at the news channel. What Klein didn't say is equally important. He could have said yes, Larry pestered me about it for eight years. Or Larry repeatedly pushed Olbermann. But Klein said nothing even remotely supportive of Oralmann's claim. Instead he tossed the question aside with a flip response, as if anything more substantive would give credence to a preposterous Olbermann conceit.

    Even a Disgraced Hack Is Welcomed by Olbermann...Because He IS a Hack!

    Set the wayback machine for May 25th. That's when the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann sanctimoniously attacked Bill O'Reilly for joking about plugging the oil spill hole with members of NBC News. This shocking depiction of fantasy violence really offended Herr Olbermahn...because he didn't think of it first. Just three days later, Olby would crack that the way to plug the hole was to stuff it with BP executives:

    Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

    That's how it works on OlbyPlanet. It's only wrong when someone on Fox does it. It's not even wrong when someone at the Washington Post does it--as long as they agree with Edward R Olbermann. So what if frequent Olby parrot Dave Weigel called for Matt Drudge to commit suicide by setting himself on fire?

    This would be a vastly better world to live in if Matt Drudge decided to handle his emotional problems more responsibly, and set himself on fire.

    No WPitW for Weigel, because Olby approves of Weigel's aims: to slant the news to benefit the Democratic Party, or when necessary to minimize the damage to the Dems, as when Scott Brown defeated Coakley:

    I think pointing out Coakley's awfulness is vital, because it's 1) true and 2) unreasonable panic about it is doing more damage to the Democrats.

    Hmm, does that sound familiar? It should. It's like a living, breathing example of the sort of "news" that you get on OlbyPlanet. Twisted, slanted, choreographed, and filtered. Ergo it's no surprise that Dave Weigel--out of a job, discredited, and exposed as a slovenly political hack--will be welcomed back in the Seat of Honor on tonight's Hour of Spin. Along with Crazy Larry, The Perfessor, and a Special Education Comment attacking...wait for it...Palin!

    Only the diseased mind of a feckless propagandist could welcome Weigel back because he has been exposed as a partisan hack. But that's life on OlbyPlanet. Comments are open!

    Uh Oh...How's Olby Going to Spin This One?

    Bathtub Boy

    Oh that Obama! He didn't do what Olbermann told him to do. Krazy Keith spent yesterday hyperventilating about General McChrystal, telling the Prez not to accept his resignation, but instead "Keep him, Mr President". That way Obama will "neuter the political blowback" and "present a front of force and calm and intelligence".

    But Obama didn't listen to Herr Olbermahn. Maybe the Prez was influenced by the writings at Keith Olbermann's blog, where they declared that McChrystal is a "monstrous thug", an example of the military's "pathological criminals": "half murderer, and all evil". Yes, our old friends at Daily Kos, recently described by member Olbermann as "a nice site".

    But there's a bigger problem on OlbyPlanet. Obama went and appointed General Petraeus. You remember Olbermann on Petraeus, don't you?

    Mr. Bush, you had no right to order General Petraeus to become your front man. And he obviously should have refused that order, and resigned rather than ruin his military career.... Mr. Bush, you have hidden behind the general`s skirts... That, sir, is not only un-American, it is dictatorial. And in pimping General David Petraeus, sir, in violation of everything this country has been assiduously and vigilantly against for 220 years...

    But that's hardly Oralmann's most egregious insult to the General. You will recall the famed moveon "Petraeus Betray Us" ad, questioning the General's patriotism? The moveon folks have quickly moved to scrub that ad from their website. But as readers of Olbermann Watch have known for years, the Petraeus/BetrayUs smear was not thought up by moveon. Before their ad even appeared, the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann was impugning the General's patriotism live, on air, bellowing:

    KEITH OLBERMANN, MSNBC HOST: Which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? The Petraeus report, less Petraeus, more Betray Us.

    And just to make sure nobody missed the point, he put his slur right up on the tv screen:

    Bathtub Boy

    Yes, Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann is the author of Petraeus/BetrayUs. Moveon stole it from Olby. And now Monkeymann is about to go on the air what? Slam Petraeus anew? Accuse Obama of pimping him? Repeat his "BetrayUs" smear? Or just pretend like none of that ever happened and gush over Obama's choice as if he was for Petraeus all along?

    Meet the OlbyLoons (Twitter Edition): Laura Stadler

    Bathtub Boy

    We know Olbyloons are fixated on the wonderful magnificence that is Keith Olbermann, but even the most rabid aren't as prolific as the one we profile tonight: Laura Stadler. It's hard to imagine how she finds time to serve as moderator on a video game forum, because she's constantly on twitter. In just the past week alone she has sent over 100 tweets to @Keith Olbermann! Such is the nature of obsession whereby anything no matter how trivial (like the weather, or allergy shots) gets sent to @KeithOlbermann, in the desperate hope of getting his attention. Laura seems to have had no luck getting @KeithOlbermann to follow her on twitter. But even worse--it seems that Olby has ceased replying to her at all! Laura offers up innumerable theories for this, but there's an obvious explanation. His replies stopped after Laura gave her age: 48. Here is just a sample of the multiple hundreds of tweets she directed to Oralmann over the last three weeks:

    • I'll miss getting to hear the Thurber reading live(30 yr HS class reunion is tonight)Will watch via DVR later.
    • Can't watch @KeithOlbermann because I'm at my HS reunion right now, dammit :-(
    • I'm going back inside for another round:no fucking signal in the basement where the bar is :-( missing@KeithOlbermann sucks
    • Good night everyone, including @KeithOlbermann :)
    • YANKEES WIN!!!!! Now THAT was a good game :D Hope it made @KeithOlbermann happy too ;)
    • I also watch what I've DVRed during the week....mostly @KeithOlbermann and @Maddow ;)
    • If you live for the day @KeithOlbermann follows you #YouMayBeALiberal & a #Yankee fan & #shameless //LOL Agreed ;)
    • I should probably get some rest myself....if I fail to get to sleep, I'll be back later. Good night everyone, especially @KeithOlbermann :)
    • @KeithOlbermann Looking forward to watching the show.....Musto is really funny and I bet he'll be "En Fuego" tonight ;)
    • @KeithOlbermann The show is interesting so far....and I see you're wearing your jeans tonight as well ;) Do like the jacket and tie :)
    • @KeithOlbermann ROFL at Michael Musto's segment. Great show tonight :D I'm trying to behave...still worn out from parties all weekend ;)
    • @KeithOlbermann is MUCH better looking than Philippe Cousteau!///I agree :D I'm also not a cougar ;)
    • I have yet to figure out why they impersonate me and then try to undermine me with @KeithOlbermann
    • @KeithOlbermann Good afternoon Keith :D What lovely weather you're having today :)
    • Almost done killing time at the doctor after my allergy shots :P Have to do some shopping, but should be home in time for @KeithOlbermann :)
    • Oh, niiice :D Purple with dark purple tie and black pinstriped jacket tonight. Very nice combo, @KeithOlbermann ;)
    • That second toss was all kinds of adorable tonight ;)
    • Am getting the start of a f'ing migraine right now..glad it waited until after both live runs of @KeithOlbermann were over.
    • I know why this migraine is hitting me:no sleep last night :( I was actually awake to see all 4 @KeithOlbermann broadcasts.
    • As to the @KeithOlbermann follow goal: He does seem to follow the pretty young women more...I don't stand a chance at 48 :(
    • @KeithOlbermann Well, nicer realtively speaking, anyway...I would love to hear from you if I'm in trouble for tweeting you so much...pls??
    • Be NICE to @KeithOlbermann so that maybe he'll tweet to us more often ;)
    • @KeithOlbermann looks very serious tonight in shades of's not funeral black ;) Love that striped shirt, too...
    • @KeithOlbermann Time for me to get some rest. Good Night and I hope you get some sleep, Keith :)
    • all the data I have on at least 24 @KeithOlbermann podcasts ;) Probably need to delete some :P
    • @KeithOlbermann How can you say your pictures are unflattering......YOU happen to be quite photogenic, unlike myself ;)
    • @KeithOlbermann Very nice combo tonight...Charcoal gray jacket and the blue&earth tones tie :D
    • @KeithOlbermann I hope I'm not in trouble with you for reading your mention stream in addition to my own timeline...I read very quickly
    • Insomnia last night, and the only way to reset my sleep cycle is to stay awake until the 3rd run of @KeithOlbermann's show starts :(
    • I feel like I'm on @KeithOlbermann's ignore list, though. Did you see my tweets about the BP respirator farce??
    • Trying to back up my iPhone right now.....hope the damned thing is finished before @KeithOlbermann is on the air
    • @KeithOlbermann You know what, Keith? You've got HUGE......amounts of integrity. :) //LOL NOT where *my* brain went ;)
    • So do you think our teacher (@KeithOlbermann) is going to spank me, give me dentention&punishment "sentences" ala Bart Simpson? ;)
    • Good night and sleep well :) I'll be heading for bed after @KeithOlbermann is over again....he WAS wearing jeans tonight, BTW ;)
    • @KeithOlbermann I'm looking forward to hearing the Thurber story you pick for Friday's reading. Sleepytime for me.....Good Night, Keith :
    • I got the whole show on DVR, but wanted to have the podcast to listen to as well....@KeithOlbermann's reading voice is relaxing ;)
    • it would be nice if @KeithOlbermann would follow me, if only to be able to comment without the trolls heckling me.
    • @KeithOlbermann Yeah, it does look rather warm out there today.....hope you're wearing something comfy and using sunscreen ;)
    • @KeithOlbermann So, what color shirt are you wearing??? We who are watching the game on TV are trying to spot you on the crowd....
    • I doubt I'll ever get another reply tweet out of @KeithOlbermann....I seem to be persona non grata lately :-(
    • Can't be putting your foot in your mouth worse than I've done..probably why @KeithOlbermann doesn't answer me anymore

    Meanwhile, prepare for tonight's Hour of Spin. Will Olby be wearing jeans again? Or that dark purple tie? And what color shirt will he wear? Laura Stadler wants to know!! Comments are open!

    Keith Olbermann Leads Desperation 24-Hour MSNBC Flip-Flop!

    Just as we predicted yesterday, MSNBC's critical reaction to Obama's handling of the BP catastrophe didn't even last a day. As if the orders had been beamed in from the DNC, Wednesday found the A-Mess-NBC propagandists back in their sycophantic zone, led by the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann. John Gibson discusses this, and Oralmann's drama-queen "announcement" that he was leaving Daily Kos (how long will that last?). Listen up, listen uppers:

    What to expect on tonight's Hour of Spin?

    • Olby attack on Joe Barton for saying "shakedown" (but Ed Schultz will get a pass)
    • Olby attack on Dick Armey
    • More conspiracy talk about Al Greene (D)
    • Olby on soccer

    Definitely must-miss tv. Comments are open!

    Meet the OlbyLoons (Twitter Edition): Donna Cestone

    Bathtub Boy

    She claims (and therefore wants Keith Olbermann to believe) that she is a registered pharmacist in DC, but twitter user belladonnamc elsewhere describes herself as a "pharmaceuticals professional", which isn't exactly the same thing. Be that as it may, there's no doubt of her unswerving (and borderline irrational) obsession with the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann, as these tweets demonstrate:

    • Well deserved; This is wonderful news!!! Congratulations Lawrence and Excellent Selection Keith! :-) [Apparently she too believes Olbermann decides who gets to appear on A-Mess-NBC]
    • Loved Thurber as usual! I see you're making it more casual without the tie and you looked great!
    • Not to mention every other night I watch you, you're looking mighty fine tonight! ;-)
    • Just visiting too and hope you had a great weekend! :-)
    • Yay; I did catch Thurber! Now to play my taped show from the beginning!
    • Loved tonight's comment! :-)
    • Did get your Tweet about being on the 7 train now; get home safely! T-storm here now; I'm going to sleep. Sweet dreams :-)
    • I'm at The Capital Grille (5310 Western Avenue, Wisconsin Avenue, Bethesda).
    • Think of it this way: We get to see ALL of your good looks that way and you don't look old! :-)
    • On my way to Mount Vernon for a Winefest with friends; will Foursquare when I get there...Think you'd like this event!
    • Was wondering where you've been this gorgeous day! - LOL! :-)
    • WOW! Beautiful ring! :-)
    • I enjoyed seeing this at work. Please post more photos of you!
    • I wanna hear flutes too! :-)

    There's much more but you get the idea. The desperation is really sad, but who knows? Perhaps Olbermann will make another Love Connection.

    Meanwhile, watch for the fastest flip-flop in Oralmann history as he reverses his mild criticism of Obama yesterday and comes out cheering for BHO tonight. Sure as there's an OlbyPlanet, that's what will happen. Comments are open!

    MSNBC Adds Crazy Larry O'Donnell: An Even Whiter Spectrum of News!

    In yet another bold programming move, A-Mess-NBC has given its 10:00 pm slot to Lawrence "Creepy Liar!" O'Donnell. Observers are already giving this predictable move a thumbs down, noting how little it really adds to the primetime lineup. But one question remains: "Where are the black faces?" (tm Keith Olbermann). MSNBC's lineup of white news, is now whiter than ever:

    While you're pondering how many times Edward R Olbermann will rail against the paucity of "black faces" on A-Mess-NBC (that number would be somewhere around the square root of zero), enjoy this bit from Glenn Beck ridiculing Keith Olbermann--watch it here courtesy of The Right Scoop.

    Senate Candidate (D) Accused of Accosting Teen with Porn...So Olbermann Endorses Him!

    You really can't get any lower than this. The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann is so desperate to promote Democrats and smear Republicans that he'll not just cross the line--he'll obliterate it. Follow: a Democratic candidate for US Senate is arrested and charged with a pornography-related felony. According to the accuser, Alvin Greene (D) accosted her in a restricted school area and stuck a sexually explicit picture in her face. And then tried to get her to go with him. Here is the story as the victim told it:

    Yeccch. This is a sleazy and slimy guy. Yet, if you're Edward R Olbermann, Sen James DeMint (R) is worse. So much so, Oralmann declared that (if he lived in the state) he'd cast his vote for the accused pervert! No we're not making this up:

    Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

    Everyone knows that Edward R Murrow would give his endorsement to a pervert, so why not Krazy Keith? Maybe there's something here that reminds Olby of the good old days, when he could use the company email to entice young things to a nearby hotel room. Perhaps with a bottle of cheap Merlot at the ready. Then again, it could've been Laura's dog that told him he should back Alvin Greene (D). In any case, Man on Fan's diseased mind has sunk to new depths. Just another incident that the new bosses may find to be something less than comcastic. If that happens, Karma will bite.

    Sharron Angle and Laura Ingraham Respond to Latest Olbermann Attack!

    Bathtub Boy

    Smear, lie, and attack: the stock-in-trade of the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann. He never gives his victims a chance to respond (yet another way in which he is nothing like Edward R Murrow), but now you can hear what Keith doesn't want you to hear: the other side. Listen here as Sharron Angle joins Laura Ingraham to show up Oralmann for the slovenly political hack he is. (This may be a disappointment to Krazy Keith, but Laura's dog does not take part in the conversation.)

    Then get set for tonight's Hour of Spin. Attacks on BP, Dick Cheney, Bush (of course), Chris Wallace...and another zzzzzzz-filled segment of Creepy Uncle Keith reading to the kiddies from the works of an overrated nobody by the name of Thurber. Comments are open!

    Hey Here's a New Idea for Olbermann: Why Not Attack Rand Paul?

    Bathtub Boy

    Oh the excitement of another Hour of Spin, where the topics, propaganda, and biases are about as unpredictable as the rising of the sun. Coming tonight from the infamous, deplorable one:

    • Doomsday courtesy of the evil BP
    • The Wolffe Man to spin oil spills in favor of Obama
    • Political analysis from an unbiased source: Ed Schultz
    • Requisite attacks on Orly Taitz and Rand Paul
    • Plus a threat from Oralmann to return again at 10:00 pm

    Ooooh, that's scaaaary. Comments are open!

    Olbermann Reunites with Musto for Limbaugh Attack

    Bathtub Boy

    No, that's not a picture of Olbermann, though it looks a little like Musto. Actually that's a picture of someone who will probably get very little attention on tonight's Hour of Spin, because the infamous, deplorable one has bigger fish to fry...

    • Attack on BP
    • Howard "Pundit for All Occasions" Fineman for political spin
    • Lefty David Corn to attack Liz Cheney
    • Attack on Rand Paul
    • And creepy Michael Musto to attack Rush for hiring Elton John

    A "newshour" that would have made Edward R Murrow proud. Comments are open!

    OlbyWatch Fact Check: 'We Correct Our Mistakes'

    Bathtub Boy

    In blasting a typical Olbermann attack at a new target (CNN's Campbell Brown), the infamous deplorable one made a comment that struck those of us here at OlbyWatch, who know him too well, as blatantly fatuous. To quote Olby: "I have never knowingly reported anything false and we correct our mistakes."

    Yes, he did say that. OK, so the OlbyWatch Research Division is a bit short-handed during the summer months, but even so they were able to whip up a short list of Edward R Olbermann falsehoods and lies...and guess how many he corrected? Here's a hint: if you guessed one, you might just be too high:

    The above? Merely an appetizer. There are literally hundreds more examples. But you get the point. Oralmann is a serial misinformer, a congenital liar, and his claim that he 'corrects his mistakes' is the latest example of the latter.

    The Latest Olbermann News: None of It Good...for Olbermann

    Bathtub Boy

    How are those ratings going, Olby? Not so well. It seems that as FNC continues its dominance over cable news, Countdown to No Ratings is staying the course as well: going down! TV By the Numbers reports that May is Herr Olbermahn's worst month this year, as his audience dwindles and his standings plummet:

    May was Countdown with Keith Olbermann's worst month so far in 2010 in the cable news advertiser target adults 25-54 demographic. The show's May, 2010 monthly average of 250,000 adults 25-54 demo viewers was 23% below its 323,000 average in May, 2009.

    Perhaps that is why Jed Eckert is reporting on Comcast's plans for Jeff Zucker, and his fair-haired boy Krazy Keith:

    The thinking is that Phil Griffin won't have time meet the new bosses before finding himself out on the street. And without Griffin to protect The Stalker from the new corporate bosses, he can cross another network off his list of places he can never work again.

    Hmm, some good reading there. Especially when you factor in an exclusive report from Inside Cable News, which has always had good sources inside A-Mess-NBC:

    Which cable news show may be showing signs of internal trouble? Rumors are flying that the show's EP has "had it" and another key staffer is leaving the program...

    Make of that what you will, and prepare to recap another miserable Hour of Spin. Comments are open!
