    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    June 30, 2010
    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.

    Discuss, resolve, recap. Comments are open!

    It's crazy but we all know Olby is lying his ass off on this one. And what is with this "2,000 days since Mission Accomplish, 2000 days since *whatever* and 70 something days since the oil disaster" crap? How about putting in there the number of days until Obama is shown the door and when Olbermann's contract expires.

    Here ya go. Your countdown to Obama leaving office.

    Is there a story he won't inject himself into or a recently deceased person that he won't claim was a friend and watched "Countdown" all the time?

    Well, Countdown is the highest rated cable news show, last time I checked. It's been a while since KO's last talked about ratings, though...

    WOW! Bill (I killed Crossfire) Press? What rock did they dig him up out of? And it seems both Billy and Keithy are going to be croupiers for their next careers, cause they are playing the RACE CARD! And Keith, you are one to talk about being 'dishonest'. The irony meter just hit a 11.

    And a counter protest by Al (KILLER) SHARPTON! Yes, he is a killer, just google 'freddie's fashion mart'. Glenn will get 15 people for every one of Al's.

    That's not your hot pocket in the microwave, it's your daily update on the abductors for perverts crowd..... TEE TIME!!!

    Special Comment about unemployment, blah blah blah. Republicans evil, democrats good. Keep people on unemployment, they won't find work, Keith! You'll find that out when Comcast fires your a$$!

    And Sister Sharon is right, you start at the bottom and work your way up. Screw you economics? No Keith. SCREW YOU! And no matter how much you bash her, she'll still be Senator Angle.

    Get out your copy of Blue Boy, it's time for the Worst Person Abstract.

    Bronze: Bill-o!!! About town hall's list of most hated conservatives. Bashes Malkin, Coulter, Palin and Bachman as 'ugly'. Yeah, can't wait for that pictortorial with Nancy Pelosi, Barabar Boxer and Dianne Feinstein in the next Penthouse.

    Silver: Sister Michelle for bashing Obama economic policy as 'global'.

    GOLD: Cherly Casone from FBN: for saying that you should tax the 'poor'. Hey, remember Keith when some presidential candidate said we now all have some 'skin in the game'. You know, your buddy, Obama? He said that. So what Cherly said is the same think King Barack the first said. So does that mean he gets a retro active Gold in Worse Persons?

    Another award winning countdown to Larry King's last show, with a send off by Keith.

    I went to check out Olbermann's boy Bateman's twitter account. There was another US magazine update on his cutting in line to get his Iphone4. And lo and behold, Keith isn't one of his three followers now. I guess he got embarassed by him being defended by bathtub boy.

    "Well, Countdown is the highest rated cable news show, last time I checked."

    It's official. WUSS is delusional. Or a liar.

    "Your countdown to Obama leaving office."

    Somebody should tell the moron who put that countdown up that a presidential term only lasts four years.

    "Well, Countdown is the highest rated cable news show, last time I checked."

    Except for last night when everyone at FNC and Maddow beat him.

    We've heard this argument before. And we've heard Olbermann lie about his ratings and/or make them up.

    Or a delusional liar?

    Delusional liar on CRACK, CRANK, HEROIN, LSD, Mescaline, METH, etc.

    What a fucking idiot!

    I wasn't 100% sure before, but now I'm positive WUSS was just trolling ya'll for the lulz. I know most of you already knew that.

    He's not a fan of Olby, he just posts to get everyone riled up. Mike H did the same thing, just he probably got bored once everyone started ignoring his posts.

    WUSS just isn't as good at trolling as others are. I mean come on. Highest rated cable news show? Why not just go all out and add in that fabled 19-23 demo that only exists in Bathtub Boy's mind.

    Lafinman...that is exactly what I thought when I read that post. It was so ridiculous and false.

    Just a suggestion...ignore everything he says and he'll will go away. If would be different if he had anything intelligent to say but he just makes these stupid comments and waits in his Mom's basement to see how we react.

    I would feel sorry for him if he weren't so pathetic.

    Regarding WPitW, I'm always tempted to watch the video to see what was said, especially if there's an O'Reilly attack. I've held off so far.

    WUSS spewed: "Countdown is the highest rated cable news show, last time I checked"

    Last time I checked (yesterday), O'Reilly was hammering Olberhack by a 3:1 clip. Even NANCY GRACE was beating Krazy Keith in the coveted 25-54 demo. DisGRACEful!

    8PM – P2+ (25-54) (35-64)
    The O’Reilly Factor– 2,894,000 viewers (766,000) (1,407,000)
    Campbell Brown – 392,000 viewers (79,000) (168,000)
    Countdown w/ K. Olbermann – 937,000 viewers (244,000) (471,000)
    Nancy Grace – 833,000 viewers (249,000) (415,000)


    Olby's show is not a NEWS show, even when it says it is. Olby says he is the highest rated, because nothing on Fox counts since Fox shows are not news.... So let's look at it closer.

    Hardball - not news, more of a debate and grilling show
    Ed Show - WOW, that's not news, purely analysis and opinion
    Countdown - not news, purely cheerleading, and spinning
    Maddow - not news, more analysis, ... better than Olby

    Special Report - Is news... at least the first half hour.
    Shep Smith - The closest thing to a news report on this entire list.
    O'Reilly - not news, definitely an analysis forum
    Hannity - not news, (I hate that Hannity claims it is news), mostly spin, but he does have people on from the other side (unlike Olby)

    Greta - I'm not sure what she is, depends if there is a national missing person's case

    So the only real Cable News shows from 6-11PM are Special Report and Shep Smith, and those usually beat Olby's ratings each night.

    Olby doesn't win his timeslot, AND his show stands alone in terms of its content. The MSNBC shows line up to FOX as such.

    Special Report = nothing on MSNBC
    Shep Smith = nothing on MSNBC (maybe something during the noon hour, maybe)

    O'Reilly = nothing on MSNBC... the closest is Maddow

    Hannity = nothing on MSNBC... the closest is Olby with no opposing view

    Sorry WUSS... Fox owns actual news at night... and it's really only from 6 to 8. MSNBC doesn't even try.

    Best Wishes,

    Olby Tweeted that the Jon Klein exchange in question actually SUPPORTED his claim that Larry King wanted him as a lead-in.

    "Turns out CNN's JON Klein confirmed Larry King wanted me as his CNN lead-in. So did Jon, BTW RT @VailskiClub"

    That's a link to the very same Mediaite story discussed above (curious ... doesn't Keith hate Mediaite?)

    Anyway, KO also tweeted something about being the top news show even though he's something like 14th in cable news, "because the first 13 don't cover news, just GOP talking points" (I didn't know Mark Lamont Hill's liberal views qualified as GOP talking points)

    I wonder how many people tweeted back to him that he just reads Dem talking points.

    His latest spin on Fox News killing him in the ratings:

    "@futpilot Number 1; you are mistakenly including "Fox News" on your list. It's a brand name, like "BP" - there is no actual "news" in it."

    "@PureDomination But Fox's ratings look like crap compared to its rivals, the other all-fiction channels, like USA Network"

    Reading Olby's tweets is kinda sad, really. It's the tragic tale of a man so consumed by his own ego he can't understand the subtleties of the issues. Even more tragic that nearly 74,000 people think he's worth following.

    The 74K make me believe those are viewers of Countdown who actually believe Bathtub Boy, the rest of his "viewers" are people who watch it for the slants, the lies, and the occasional meltdowns.

    If Olby can do a 180 on Twitter, then anybody can figure it out. Remember last year he claimed it was going to be trouble after a "fake" account was made in his name. Now he's hooked on it.

    In Olby's mind 74k is probably a slap in the face, I'm sure he's fantasized about having millions of followers at this point. So really you got to view that 74k through his eyes. 74k would be a lot for common folks like us. But for the elitist Bathtub Boy it's a disappointment.

    Fox News isn't really news...therefore I win!!!

    Does he realize how immature and stupid that is?

    The heart of liberalism is never having to say you're sorry, never having to apologize and never having to take responsibility for anything.

    Dear god, listening to Arrinana Huff and Puff and Olby talk about who is intelegent is like... Well, it's like nothing else. That was dreadful.

    No, that's not people from Kentucky running to Indiana and Tennessee to get REAL FIREWORKS, it's your daily update on the Fingers for Paramedics crowd.. TEE TIME!!!!

    Another bitch about unemployment checks. And throws in a total tea party attack with Barry Wong, for utility commissioner. Remember, to bow down to Keith and King Obama for they are smarter than us peasants and plebeians.

    Get out your popcorn makers, IT'S THE WORST PERSONS ABSTRACT.

    Bronze: Katherine Parker: For calling Obama a woman. He is. She's right. BUT YOU CANNOT DENY YOUR GOD, OBAMA!!! Keith panics when he finds out Ms. Parker is going on CNN at 8. And she's going to kick your ass too. But as with anyone who kicks your teeth in, you'll just ignore it and come up with some fantasy that puts you on top.

    Silver: Sister Sarah at a bowling conevention for forgeting about childhood memories. SHE IS A IDIOT, yeah right. Remember, you must be perfect on Olby planet.

    GOLD: Matt Drudge for saying that Joe Biden used bliztkringe. Sends Olby into coniptions.

    Another NAZI NAZI NAZI day on countdown.

    Kneel down to Furher Obama.

    Can someone tell me why liberals think they own "I have a dream"? If MLK could see how pimps (YEAH, I SAID IT!) like Sharpton and Jackson have ruined "the dream", he would roll in his grave!

    And Al, I've only got three words for you.... FREDDIE'S FASHION MART.

    Leave to Olbermann to inject himself in to the Larry King story. Most self-absorbed ass hat on tv bar none thy name is Olbermann.

    Oh oh. New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton did an interview with Billo! Talking about winning the Super Bowl! Whatever must Mr. Football Night in America think about that?

    Also, more of his anti-Fox tweets. Here's his latest slant about why higher Fox News ratings don't matter:

    "how many more members does Islam have than Christianity? And why do you think that makes it better than Christianity?"

    Interesting tweet given that most statistics have Christianity at about 2.1 billion and Islam at about 1.5 billion.

    Now, Islam has overtaken Catholicism, which is a part of Christianity, but I don't think it has overtaken Christianity as a whole, has it? Or has Keith conflated Catholicism in particular and Christianity in general. Or is he just full of shit?

    Obviously he's trying to say that something that has more followers isn't necessarily better. And it's a good point. But before he gets caught up in that argument maybe he should remember a point closer to his heart. There are more registered Democrats than Republicans.

    Because I know this won't last on his BB blog, I just had to copy and paste...

    "Don't forget that Don Larsen had that abysmal 3-21 season for the Baltimore Orioles team that lost 100 games in 1954 after moving from St. Louis. That throws his stats a bit out of whack."

    Lol, yeah, good point.

    But if I could digress for a moment, with Larry King retiring, Keith tweets about how sweet Larry is and how he tried for almost a decade to make Keith his lead in.

    What relevance does this have? Other then to you and your ego I mean? And why do you take what Klein said as confirmation that what you said is right? He simply said Larry has a million ideas a day. He didn't say you were right.

    Keith, please, you have hundreds of fans, some not even members of this blog or the Kooks. You're super rich. You use clever lines from Futurama and Family Guy to appeal to us young-ins. And yes, people like you.

    So please, please, stop making things that have absolutely nothing to do with you, about you. When a celebrity dies, you always somehow work it in that he or she liked you, or at least watched your show.

    We know what high school, and probably college must have been like for you. So again, please, we get it, people like you, not a lot, but they do exist. So the next time an anchor retires or dies, please don't make it about you. You're not even subtle, as with the LK line, in the same tweet you instantly made it about you and how awesome you are in an important person's opinion.

    Holy shit he's doing it again. From Twitter:

    "SABR founder dies.....I met him, Cliff Kachline, when I was 14 & researching at MLB HOF. Very nice man."

    It's time again for the Daily Caller's Olby Week in Review.
    Also, "that woman is an idiot" is now a running gag/meme/talking point. So, we can add a [Ding!] to it.

    The end of last night's show:
    SHARPTON: And if we had another hour, I could bring the race part up. If you just use government and what Martin Luther King said—read the whole speech. It is the exact antithesis of what they represent and what they‘re saying in the Tea Party.
    OLBERMANN: ***Perfectly put.*** The Reverend Al Sharpton, always a pleasure. Thanks for your time.
    SHARPTON: Thank you.
    OLBERMANN: That's COUNTDOWN for July 1st, the 2,618th day since President Bush declared mission accomplished in Iraq, the 2,207th day since he declared victory in Afghanistan, and the 73rd day of the Deepwater Horizon disaster in the Gulf.
    I'm Keith Olbermann, good night and good luck.

    Comcast, please fire this man. You can leave the other commentators. Just get rid of him!!!

    If the Ape Ruler is going to regurgitate these 3 disasters, then why stop there? Why not include The Civil War, WWI, WWII, The Korean War, Viet Nam, 9/ nauseum. I mean what is this useless excuse for an Ape Ruler trying to prove? What is his point? That we have to be reminded about these things or else we'll forget? That it's his responsibility to REMIND us?

    Well if so Ape Ruler, here's one for you, because I feel it is my responsibility as an American to remind you that it has been 2,846 days since a group of Muslim male extremists attacked and killed over 2,800 innocent Americans. That's right. MUSLIM MALE EXTREMISTS> You know your "best buds." I know you have forgotten that little fact the day after it happened, but just in case you think it never happened I'll refreah that rotten thing inside your skull once again....2,846 days since your pals from the mideast came over to my country...not yours, but mine...and proceeded to extinguish over 2,800 innocent Americans.

    Got that, you phony lying piece of shit.

    God, what a waste of skin he is...

    “Larry King is a lovely and generous man, who repeatedly tried to convince his bosses to hire me to precede him at CNN…”

    Of course he did Keith. That’s the heavily sedated Larry for ya!

    But apparently even Larry's bosses at a loser cable network, who hired an no-TV-experience sleazeball like Eliot Spitzer, are not DUMB enough to hire Keith Olbermann.

    “I’m Alan Partridge, I mean Keith Olbermann, and you’re not.”

    AND TONIGHT'S WORST PERSONS IN THE WOOOOOOOORLD: Larry King’s bosses at CNN who refused to hire me, the adorable Keith.


    That's COUNTDOWN for July 10th, the 733,650th day since the birth of Jesus Christ, if you believe that shit; the 806,721st day since Hannibal crossed the Alps with his magnificent pack of Heffalumps; and the 5,373rd day since I had sex without money changing hands.
    I'm Keith Olbermann, good night and fuck you.

    @olbermann. Robert Byrd was a lovely, generous old man who tried, for eight years, to convince his bosses to hire me to be his replacement in the Senate.

    @olbermann.“Jay Leno is a lovely and generous man, who repeatedly tried to convince his bosses to hire me to precede him at NBC…”

    @olbermann.“Mel Gibson is a lovely and generous man, who repeatedly tried to convince Hollywood to hire me to replace him in Lethal Weapon franchise"

    More of KO crossing sports and politics, from Twitter:

    jazzypeanuts: "@KeithOlbermann What will it take to get you voting rights for the Baseball Hall of Fame? Obviously you're an expert in the area."

    KeithOlbermann: "Hell Freezing over might do it. The HOF is owned by an ultra-Conservative family (it also owns most of Cooperstown NY)"

    Yeah, that's it. The Hall of Fame is a bunch of conservative know-nothings and that's why you don't get a vote.

    Except when you look at the qualifications for getting a HOF vote. First, you have to be a baseball beat writer for a qualifying magazine, newspaper or website. Second, you need 10 years of membership in the BBWAA. So Keith may not work for a newspaper or magazine, and broadcasters can't be members of the BBWAA yet, but maybe his dumb little blog might count someday. Except he hasn't been doing that for 10 years.

    So instead of blaming politics, Keith, how about looking to the fact that you chose to do a show that has nothing to do with baseball, and your current contribution to sports programming has nothing to do with baseball (other than ruining what would otherwise be a highly anticipated Ken Burns update to "Baseball.") As for being an expert, I'm sure there's plenty of schlubs out there more knowledgeable about baseball than BBWAA writers.

    Maybe after Comcast cans him he can get a job with and qualify for the BBWAA that way.

    All kidding aside, though, the BBWAA shouldn't have that much of an influence on the HOF anyway.

    Keith lives in a world where everything is political. From how someone combs his hair to how they have their hamburger. It's all political.

    Oh, I'm sorry Wuss, here is a more accurate countdown, especially since Herr Obama doesn't want to do actual work!
