The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann will return to the airwaves tonight, and at least in his own mind he returns as a victor. As Jeff Bercovici noted, when you get past all the flowery prose and pseudo-intellectual posturing of Keith's 'apology', it all translates to two words: 'I won'.
But maybe people aren't reading Oralmann's words closely enough. The detritus that Keith bangs out on his laptop has more to tell us than the fact that he's an egotist (like who didn't know that already?). Perusing his screed, there were several items that caught our eye.
I was suspended without a hearing...
Wow. Somehow that lack of a hearing didn't bother him when he was chortling over the firing of Juan Williams.
You should also know that I did not attempt to keep any of these political contributions secret; I knew they would be known to you and the rest of the public.
When would that be? He covered the entire election cycle, including election night himself, without mentioning his donations. When was he going to make this public? Next year? He only admitted the donations after he'd been caught, after a website had dug out the information for themselves.
You should know that I mistakenly violated an inconsistently applied rule - which I previously knew nothing about
Here's where it gets interesting. Remember this?
No actual news organization would permit its people, even its commentators, to assume such purely partisan political fund-raising roles. This organization, rightly, would not even let me address an ordinary non-fund-raising gathering of some Democratic senators. Those are the news rules. And if Mr. Ailes does no honor them nor obey them, as he never has, he should be relieved of any news responsibilities, or his employer should admit that he is purely a political operative.
Wait just a second here. Keith claims that he isn't aware of NBC's rules, but just a few months ago he was quoting them chapter and verse to attack Roger Ailes? If you believe Herr Olbermahn, then we have some lovely oceanfront property in Colorado to sell you. Note also that Olby insists because Ailes broke the 'news rules' (i.e. NBC's rules), he should be 'relieved of any news responsibilities'. Does he still hold with that standard?
You should know that I mistakenly violated an inconsistently applied rule...
Inconsistently applied? That would mean there are others at MSNC who also made secret donations? So Keith is not the only person to donate to candidates without permission or disclosure to NBC? Who are the others? Name the names, in the interest of full disclosure. Hey Keith, are you protecting more secrets donors who just haven't been caught yet? Or is your claim merely Another Olbermann Lie?
We know that Keith is not the only person shilling for Democrats on A-Mess-NBC. While we wait for him to name the other secret donors he's protecting, how about someone explaining how an MSNBC host can get away with this?
The Broomfield Democrats invite you to the Carter Dinner. This is the largest annual fundraising event for the party and this year's keynote will be given by MSNBC's Ed Schultz!
How can this be? When he was attacking Fox Edward R Olbermann used this exact example of something NBC would never permit! And it seems they permitted it all along. Hey Olby, did Ed Schultz break the 'news rules'? Should he be immediately relieved of all duties at MSNBC?
And what an exciting event that Ed Schultz fundraiser must have been, given the huge spotlight focus shining directly on one of MSNBC's on-air hosts:
That's delightful the way they phrase that: 'distinguished guests'...and Ed Schultz too.
Olbermann citing NBC rules to attack Fox, then claiming ignorance of NBC rules to make excuses for himself. Olbermann claiming that he's been singled out unfairly, while refusing to give any information whatsoever about the other alleged infringers. Does anyone over the age of ten really believe anything this serial liar says?
The fabrications, spin, and outright lies spewing forth from Olbypologists like Rachel Maddow have been stunning. If you haven't already, read the truth about the Phony 'Journalism' of Rachel Maddow. It will give you just the context you need for the following video. Then settle down for an excrutiating Hour of Spin.
On tonight's hour of spin:
