    Olbermann Guest Caught Lying on the Air About Her Assault?

    On Tuesday's Hour of Spin, the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann talked to moveon.org operative Lauren Valle. She gave her version of the events, but today another video surfaced. And while there is no doubt that an assault took place, the new video raises serious questions about the veracity of moveon's operative. See for yourself:

    Olby will be addressing the new video tonight, and maybe there's a clue here:

    • TWITTERMANN: Also tonight we'll show all known videos of the Lauren Valle headstomping incident & let you decide if new images materially contradict her

    Is Oralmann going to argue that yeah, she lied, but that's OK because she was still assaulted? Watch the video and post your opinions about the incident and Herr Olbermahn right here. Comments are open!

    Countdown: Eight Days to Election, Nine Days to the Bathtub!

    Bathtub Boy

    You know the infamous, deplorable one will want to soak, soak, soak in that tub rather than come back to work the day after the election. Time will tell if, when that long, black limousine shows up at Casa Olbermann (because he can't drive a car himself), Krazy Keith will dry off and show up for work.

    But he'll be there tonight, and that's bad enough:

    • Attack on Chamber of Commerce, with little Ezra.
    • Attack on Group that favors (R) candidates, with EJ Dionne.
    • Attack on Mitch McConnell (R), with Geno.
    • Attack on Rumsfeld (R).
    • Attack on Karl Rove (R).

    A perfect record. Every attack on a Republican. Man, that's what makes Olbyplanet Olbyplanet. Comments are open!

    Soros Gives $1 Million to Key Olbermann Blue Blog Source

    Bathtub Boy
    Of course Edward R Olbermann doesn't come right out and say he takes his stories from Media Matters. But we know better; the archives have tracked hundreds of his hit pieces straight back to Brock's blue blog. So why is Ernst Stavro Soros suddenly coming out of the shadows? This will explain it:

    On tonight's Hour of Spin:

    • Oh noes! The eeeevil Chamber of Commerce again, and they're linked to...a Retreat! Oooh, that's scaaaaaary.
    • Let's toss in Beck, Scalia, and a few more to the above, to make it a Guilt-By-Associationorama!
    • The Dems are surging! The Dems are surging! Who sez? Why, um, Bawney Fwank (D), who just had to loan his own campaign nearly a quarter of a million dollars. Tonight he'll be Olbermann's butt boy.
    • The evil Koch brothers; Matt Taibi will serve as parrot.
    • Attack on school books, with the guest expert somebody or other's mother.
    • Attack on Rush Limbaugh (R).
    • Attack on Mrs Clarence Thomas (R). Oh, and a reminder that Justice Thomas is a sex offender, or somthing.

    Thursday's Hour of Spin:

    • Attack on the Chamber of Commerce, part 26.
    • Attack on Mark Kirk (R).
    • Attack on Karl Rove (R).
    • Commentary by a Think Propaganda hack plus HuffPo's Howard Not-So-Fineman.
    • Attack on Christine O'Donnell (R).
    • Special guest for a slobbering blue-dress interview: Nancy Pelosi (D).

    Friday's Hour of Spin:

    • Damage control for Harry Reid (D).
    • Attack on the eevil Republican donors w/ New York Times hack.
    • Praise of union donors with AFSCME thug.
    • Attack on House candidate (R).
    • Attack on Beck (F).
    • Attack on Bachmann (R) (the above with David 'Canned' Corn).
    • The most boring 10 minutes in television. (i.e. Thurberzzzzzzzzz).

    Are You Ready for Some Olbermann?

    Bathtub Boy

    It's going to be another night of must-miss tv on A-Mess-NBC tonight. And of course the flagship broadcast for slovenly political hackery will be helmed by the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann. How many Republicans will he attack tonight? How many Dems will he slobber over and cover up for? Who at Fox will be the next victim of Oralmann's drooling venom? Your tip sheet for tonight's Hour of Spin:

    • Attack on Joe Miller (R); Olby's parrot will be a far-left partisan from Alaska's premier blue blog.
    • Defense of Dems: 9.6% unemployment proves the stimulus worked!
    • Attack on Bachmann (R): Ezra the K will probably weigh in here too.
    • Attack on Ashcroft (R), Bush (R), et al: another hilarious episode of Olby and the Perfessor.
    • Attack on Sharron Angle (R): a blue blogger from Nevada will be called in to serve as Olbermahn's human Xerox machine.
    • Attack on Brian Kilmeade (Fox): the apology isn't good enough, long enough, loud enough...what-freaking-ever.
    • Attack on Alan West (R).
    • Attack on Ann Coulter (R).
    • Attack on Bachmann (R). What, twice in one show? We'll see if this pans out, but it wouldn't be the first time for Edward R Olbermann.

    The tally? At least eight attacks on (R)s, and we're going out on a limb and say there will be zero attacks on (D)s. Because this is OlbyPlanet.

    Comments are open!

    UPDATE: Relax. Tonight you can watch NCIS, or O'Reilly, without wondering what crimes against journalism Olbermann is committing. Because Olby's in the tub tonight. In his place: ignoramus and serial liar Cenk (pronounced Chunk) Uygur. Now there's a powerful intellect, who will no doubt be committing his own journalistic sins. But who cares? It's still must-miss tv.

    Keith Condemned Breitbart for Edited Video, Now Uses Edited Video to Attack O'Reilly!

    Bathtub Boy

    The Olbypocrisy just doesn't come any thicker. Oh the self-righteous moralizing from Rev Olbermann about Breitbart's video of Shirley Sherrod--an accurate clip but one that was cut off before the full context of Sherrod's story had been included. Oralmann fumed: Sherrod was 'assassinated by that scum Breitbart!' Edward R Olbermann called Breitbart 'scum' no fewer than four times in one diatribe. All for a clip that ended too soon.

    Fast forward to the present. Herr Olbermahn is cackling over Bill O'Reilly's appearance on The View, and he can't seem to resist doing so on twitter:

    • TWITTERMANN: Selling latest sh*t book, Billo the Clown stunned as View hosts walk off in protest at his hate speech towards Muslims http://bit.ly/cOcg0l

    There was more: O'Reilly hates America, falafel [Ding!], loofah [Ding!], yada yada yada. But Oralmann was clearly enjoying the moment.

    Now that little jumble of letters at the end of the tweet? That's a link to a video of the segment which you can check out here. If you do, you'll notice something peculiar. After Mr Bill talks about Muslims killing Americans on 9/11, Joy and Whoopi stage a theatrical walk-off. And--boom!--the video ends there. That's all Edward R Olbermann wanted you to see.

    How very Breitbartian of him. He could chose any of hundreds of clips that ran longer and/or showed the entire segment. But then his groupies would have seen O'Reilly's response, his clarification of what he was talking about, his apology, and the return of the prodigal co-hosts. The conversation continued, and even went into a second segment.

    Now if somebody says something, and just seconds later corrects themselves so they won't be misunderstood...um, isn't that called 'context'? Apparently it is for some people, but those rules don't apply to Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann. He can direct his credulous lemmings to a video that neatly leaves out what happened just seconds afterward, removes the context just like the Breitbart video did, all to satisfy his anti-O'Reilly bloodlust.

    C'mon, Olby. By your own standards, you are scum. Scum. Scum. SCUM! Said four times, just like you did to Breitbart--for doing what you just did.

    Scum.

    MSNBC Ad for Olbermann Uses Faked Special Comment

    Part of the incomprehensible 'Lean Forward' campaign is an ad allegedly showing the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann composing one of his Special Ed Comments. Of course right there a penalty flag could be flown, for pretending that Olby bangs these out himself--an insult to the highly paid Countdown writing staff. But take a look at this gem and see if you can spot something even more telling:

    Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

    Edward R Olbermann bloviates 'now is the time to emancipate our culture' yada yada yada. Whatever the hell that means. But if you're scratching your head wondering where that came from, you are not alone. It's not from any Oralmann Special Comment. It doesn't turn up in any transcript of any episode of The Hour of Spin. It appears that the blustering idiocy of Keith's Special Ed Comments is so laughable and embarrassing that the writers had to concoct a fake Special Comment. Probably because hearing him yell 'You're a fascist, Mr Bush!' into the camera wouldn't mesh well with those tinkly piano notes.

    But now the Daily Caller reveals that the first cut of this promo did use Olby's actual words, verbatim:

    Yikes! What a diseased display of hateful misogny and unhinged personal attacks! No wonder they had to have their ad agency concoct an artificial, fake, untrue, Potemkin comment for these ads. The real thing would make viewers retch.

    Wednesday's Hour of Spin:

    • Tripling down on the CoC smear, still with zero evidence of any foreign funds going into US elections. Think Propaganda lies will be reinforced with a TP hack and the winner of the Rachel Maddow Look-Alike Contest.
    • Grumbling over Obama's NY Times interview. Brit 'analyst' The Wolffe Man will explain US politics to ignoramus Keith.
    • Election Fear-Monger Segment: They're going to impeach Obama!! Only an Air America failure could possibly bolster such drivel.
    • Attack on Carl Paladino (R) with Discredited Dave.
    • Attack on Richard Lott (R) over the horrors of Nazi imagery.

    Just in case you need a refresher course in Olbypocrisy, here's Oralmann:

    Olbermann to Double Down on Discredited Think Propaganda Smear!

    Bathtub Boy

    Nobody likes a good smear as much as the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann. So he's hitching his star to a bit of slander against the Chamber of Commerce from Think Progress. Now don't take our word for it that this bit of propaganda is a sleazy hit-piece devoid of even a scintilla of evidence. The NY Times has proclaimed it to be dubious at best, and Dan Abrams's Mediaite agrees, Going a step further, liberal tv writer David Zurawik describes the charge as a new low in fear and slander. And now the nonpartisan factcheck.org blasts the Democrats for mounting a serious charge with no evidence to back it up.

    Obviously, a political lie this reprehensible is catnip to Edward R Olbermann. So on tonight's Hour of Spin, he will bring in a flack from Think Propaganda to repeat it again--and no guest to give the opposing point of view. What else would one expect on OlbyPlanet?

    • Attack on Paladino (R), with a partisan hack from Talking Points Memo
    • Attack on the Chamber of Commerce, and probably Karl Rove (R) too, with another partisan hack a flagrant liar from Think Propaganda.
    • Attack on Richard Lott (R) with Geno Robinson. Maybe they'll call him a Nazi.
    • Noxious, irrelevant trivia about Google.
    • Attack on Ed Gillespie (R) and various other bits of OlbyDrivel.
    • Oh, and Oralmann in a penguin suit. Watch those buttons!

    Maybe Keith Also Believes Orson Welles Directed Animal House

    Bathtub Boy

    When it comes to pouncing on mistakes in spelling, the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann is the King of Twitter. Let anyone on his Enemies List make an error, and he's ready to pounce with unending drools of vitriol. You may recall when he bellowed that Bill O'Reilly is a "holy you-know-what liar", based on a rip 'n' read of a Media Matters attack. You see, O'Reilly had noted how he spoke up about the looting in Iraq after the city fell, and Oralmann said O'Reilly lied about that. He never said any such thing!

    Of course, the truth was O'Reilly did in fact say precisely what he claimed, just not on the episode he cited but rather on the very next one. Being off by one episode was enough for Monkeymann to bellow about Bill being a 'liar'! (The OlbyWatch archives are replete with many more Krazy Keith examples.)

    Fast forward to the present, where Edward R Olbermann is bloviating about the wondrousness of his weekly Thurber bore-o-rama. As part of his ruminations, he comes up with this gem:

    If we run a movie clip, for instance, somebody from Mr. Spielberg's [office], will call and say, 'That will be $10,000 for the three seconds of Star Wars you just used.'

    Um, Spielberg? Star Wars? Wasn't Star Wars done by George Lucas? Err, yes it was. Another embarrassing oops for Keith "Czechoslovakia" Olbermann. So an intrepid blogger posted a link to the article, and promoted it with the help of The Twitter:

    • Links: Parker/Spitz an instant ratings disaster. @KeithOlbermann thinks Spielberg did Star Wars. Rick Sanchez flashback http://bit.ly/cdPUYQ

    Word got out to "Bear" and he didn't like his faux pas being tweeted to the world. Then came the wonderful, glorious moment when your humble correspondent found how easy it is to get Keith Olbermann's goat:

    • TWITTERMANN: How stupid is this Fox Poodle at Johnny Dollar? The mismatch was intentional, and got the appropriate laugh.

    Bwaaahaaa! Sure it was. Why, confusing Spielberg with George Lucas is exactly the kind of uproarious bon mot that will elicit knee-slapping guffaws from all. It's a line that could win 'Last Comic Standing'.

    And chickens have lips.

    We know Oralmann is not one to correct errors, but this pathological need to concoct fantasy justifications for every little mistake, no matter how trivial, is another disturbing insight into the diseased psyche of Keith Olbermann.

    UPDATE: The Olbyloons leap to Keith "Man on Fan" Olbermann's defense:

    • Something tells me that @JohnnyDollar01 works for Fox News...
    • I wouldn't be surprised about @JohnnyDollar01 working for FNC at all-certainly humorless enough

    You couldn't make this stuff up!

    September Chart an Embarrassment to Journalism

    But not to the infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann. He has nothing to do with the profession of journalism. He's a slovenly political hack, and the monthly tally of his political guests demonstrates yet again how, when it comes to one-sided agit-prop, Countdown is the Radio Havana Cuba of American television. Behold, The Chart:

    Bathtub Boy

    Notes and Fun Facts:

    • For clarity, we have combined Dem Politicians and Dem Strategists into the single category of Dem Politicos
    • The most used parrot among the liberal/progressive guests was David Corn, with six visits. Ezra Klein and Paul Waldman (a Media Matters 'Senior Fellow'!) were tied for second.
    • (D) politicians invited to spin included Van Hollen, Wasserman-Schultz, Gutierrez, Weiner, Fattah.
    • (R) politicians who gave an opposing point of view included...well, nobody.
    • Of those guests categorized as 'neutral', the go-to guy was Howard Not-So-Fineman. He is now with the Huffington Post so he is neutral in name only. Discredited Dave (Weigel) came in second.

    Don't expect anything to change on tonight's Hour of Spin. It looks to be just as 'fair and balanced' as September was. To wit:

    • Republicans are attacking the middle class. For a detached, honest, no-spin, non-partisan analysis, who better than winner of the Chris Hayes Look-Alike Contest? That's right...Rachel Maddow!
    • The afore-mentioned Dave Weigel parachutes in to participate in the next attack on Republicans (in this case, the nightly Sharron Angle smear).
    • Tea partiers want firemen to let people's houses go up in flames. No, we're not making that up. Oralmann will explain it all.
    • The nightly attack on Glenn Beck, natch.

    And they wonder why everyone watches Mr Bill. Comments are open!
