    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    December 16, 2010
    Olbermann Ridicule of Rape Charges Sparks All-Out Twitter War!

    Bathtub Boy

    The tweets reported by Olbermann Watch yesterday, coupled with the infamous, deplorable one's inability to admit his own mistakes, has set the twitterverse on fire. A special hashtag (used to search twitter for a particular topic) has been created: #mooreandme. One of the irate defenders of rape victims couldn't take it any more and lashed out at Oralmann and his portly puppet:

    The point is, Keith Olbermann and Michael Moore both work in what could loosely be construed as "news." Surely they understand that if they're caught spreading misinformation and not retracting it, and violating the journalistic standard of not reporting the names of accusers in an ongoing rape investigation, that makes them look irresponsible, unprofessional, willing to sacrifice known fact to opinion, and basically unqualified to hold the jobs they have. And that it also makes them look so deeply unethical and untrustworthy as to be useless, as authority figures who opine on ethics, morals, and who is or is not a "liar." So, you just have to point out the errors. They'll understand that they messed up. And they'll retract it. Right?

    Number of Beloved Progressive Journalists Who Had Blocked Me On Twitter Yesterday: None, as far as I know!

    Number of Beloved Progressive Journalists Who Have Blocked Me On Twitter Now: One. And it's Keith Olbermann.

    Answer: Perhaps you would like to read the lengthy tantrum thrown by Keith Olbermann on Twitter last night, in which he demanded that one user "retract" (ha ha, Keith Olbermann! We love you when you're ironical! Oh no wait you're not -- oh God he's SERIOUS) a #MooreandMe tweet because it employed the term "rape apologism," demanded that another "show him the charges." Uum, Keith Olbermann, allow me to introduce you to... THE GUARDIAN???? They do a thing called "journalism" there, I think you'll find it kicky and fresh!

    There's much more at the link for your reading pleasure. While all this was going on, action at the #mooreandme hashtag has been non-stop. Olby's weak argumentation became embarrassing as one tweeter after another decimated his slippery equivocations. Here is one of our favorite exchanges:

    • TWITTERMANN: Are you aware of my track record? Merely about women journalists at Msnbc?
    • J$: Like this?

    Meanwhile the hits kept on coming, as Tommy Christopher sums up here, with Edward R Olbermann stubbornly refusing to even admit that he and Moore falsified accusations against Assange, not to mention dismissing them with chuckling ridicule. So what's an Olby to do? Why, quit twitter of course!

    This shouldn't surprise anyone. Just like he can't stand people who disagree with him on Countdown, he doesn't want to put up with them on Twitter either. So rather than read opposing views that challenge his biases, he shuts down his Twitter account! Waaah, I'm taking my toys and go home. That will punish you people. You won't be able to read my brilliant words!

    Needless to say, the Twitterverse wasn't exactly wailing in pain over Keithy's juvenile taking his ball and going home:

    • GRAYPETS: If @keitholbermann doesn't come back, Tucker Carlson will grab the Twitter account, too....
    • CRAIGCARROLL: Hey @CNN while you're investigating this "hoax", can you investigate who gives @KeithOlbermann his info? Prob same source.
    • WILDJOYRIDE: I get that you want to take rape seriously, but that means doing so even when politically inconvenient.
    • CUFFYP: "Have you no decency, Twitter? At long last, have you no decency? Good day, Twitter. Good. Day."
    • EXISTENTIALFISH: Ironically, these keitholbermann shenanigans read like something out of a thurber novel.
    • CHRISATYOURSIX: Radio silence from @KeithOlbermann. Maybe we should turn off his show like he turned us off?
    • JIMTREACHER: And to top off this very fine day, KeithOlbermann is having yet another Twitter meltdown. Life is good!
    • DOCFREERIDE: KeithOlbermann also, you know what kills people? you know what makes people AFRAID to report rape? LEAKING THEIR NAMES.
    • SHELBYKNOX: Wait for it: KeithOlbermann's mansplaining on his show tonight about how the dumb feminists forced him off the twitters.

    Oh man, KO is getting KO'd. One fun thing that has come out of this brouhaha: a lovely collection of Keith Olbermann Meme badges:

    Harry Reid caves again! This is getting hysterical to watch M.S.S.R.'s version of the news. it is Bizarro World over there. I guess the red herring on tonights show will be: Bob Feller! Another presumed countdown viewer. Notice how newly dead celebs are always outed by the Hefty One as fans of Countdung (WTF)? I guess in the universal solvency of Der Kommisar, they can't defend themselves and deny being guilty to watching this crap.

    Like when the bus leaves right before you get to it, IT'S THE WPITW ABSTRACT!

    Bronze: Lou Dobbs: For the sin of thinking the lame duck session is illegitimate.

    Silver: Rush Limbaugh: for the sin of calling Nacy Pelosi and Harry Reid terrorists. SO WHAT?

    GOLD!!!!: Bill-O for the sin of dissing the unemployment benefits for INFINITY!!!

    He says these people aren't heard from anymore. All three are more relevant than anyone on MSNBC!

    Only one more day till vacation. Hopefully Keith decides to bring the toaster to the tub with him.

    and behind the dead man comes the un-mistakable, congressman Limp Weiner (D-NY) to confiscate 55% of the dead celeb's estate

    Worse blue blog source: Media Mendacity. Worst blue blog source: Priscilla of the Newsliars. You can read Mr. Bill's original column here. It's *a week old*, but Prissy distorted it yesterday. Therefore, it is news on OlbyPlanet. Sorry, sparky, caught you ripping and reading again.

    Were my sources and topics right?

    ... and you say I use memes from the last decade...

    I got tons of thoughts tonight:

    -Personally, and this might just be my inherent pessimism, these charges against Assange sound like desperation to get him out of the picture. There doesn't seem to be any legal way to get him to stop Wikileaks. Maybe there shouldn't be, I don't know. It just seems like a lot of grasping at straws.

    Anyway the real story is Moore lies (again) and Olbermann doesn't challenge him, followed by Olbermann shutting down his Twitter page.

    In any event Olbermann has shown his cowardice again. Someone disagrees with him, block there account. If that doesn't work, shut it down and hide until the heat is off. Keith Olbermann is a coward.

    -Also, isn't it funny how every time something sensitive comes up Olbermann has to tell everyone about his firsthand knowledge on the subject with added hyperbole?

    -The first far left hack to cry "astroturf" over this Twitter thing gets a prize.

    I am going to break a rule made up by wussy and discuss another M.S.S.R. Junior propagandist. Maddow just said that the Senate HAD the votes to pass that 2100 page sack of chicken crap and declared the Senate Republicans Obstructionists and the Senate broken. Harry Reid said he didn't have the votes for this bill and now will have a vote on Christmas Day on START and DREAM. WHY????????????? THIS IS WHY THE DEMOCRATS GOT FIRED LAST MONTH! The american people don't care about htis stuff. WE WANT A BETTER ECONOMY AND JOBS

    "... and you say I use memes from the last decade..."

    I didn't! But I did say this:

    -This is approximately the twelfth hour since MKDAWUSS, official spokesperson for the Daily Kos, failed to bring up a legitimate criticism of Bristol Palin.

    -This is the first day since MKDAWUSS, official spokesperson for the Daily Kos, accused the regulars of Olbermann Watch of trashing Mr. Olbermann the father without evidence.

    -This is the first day since MKDAWUSS, official spokesperson for the Daily Kos, accused the regulars of Olbermann Watch of trashing Mrs. Olbermann without evidence.

    -This is the third day since MKDAWUSS, official spokesperson for the Daily Kos, failed to explain how this:

    is an example of Glenn Beck using a "stupid Nazi comparison". And no MKDAWUSS, keywording "Nazi" and throwing in your opinion of context is not an explanation.

    -This is the sixth day since MKDAWUSS, official spokesperson for the Daily Kos, insinuated that "Pitchforks and Torches" is a better seller than conservative books because there were no copies of it available at his bookstore.

    -This is the seventh day since MKDAWUSS, official spokesperson for the Daily Kos, accused the members of Olbermann watch of "dodging questions".

    -This has been who the hell knows how many days since MKDAWUSS acknowledged any of Keith Olbermann's Twitter nonsense.

    Keep it up Wildcat, you'll get yours.

    To answer my question, yes. In the case of Worst, yes and then some.
    Worse CC transcript: "lou dobbs is lingering along in radio obscurity [Ding!]. he does not like the lame duck session. (slow, slurred voice): 'insult to every american that this congress would even think of take up substantive legislation without hearings. driving it through a lame duck it session to subvert the will of the people. that's what this is. this is lame duck session. being run not much differently than if there were a coup d'etat of our government.' he was there when the guys behind the french's third republic knocked off napoleon in 1870."

    Worst CC transcript: "our god, bill o'reilly is still talking? his most recent quote [Ding!], entitled, ..." Ted Baxter voice. "... i don't know, pal [Ding!]. because the phrase the lord helps those who helps themselves is not in the bible. which is one o'reilly has to assume he is getting his rant [Ding!]. here are two things independent bible. luke 14:12. when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind and you will be blessed. because they cannot repay you. you will be repaid at the resurrection of the justice. on a more personal note, judges 15:16. sampson said, with the jaw bone of an ass heaps of heaps with the jaw of an ass have i slain a thousand men. bill jaw bone ass o'reilly, today's worst person in the world."
    In short, it was another Billo [Ding!]-got-his-facts-wrong-man-is-he-stupid [Ding!] attack. And Oralmann has Prissy to thank for this valuable, laudable, glorious, apt info.

    #1: One week after promoting "Casino Jack" on the Olbsession's show, Kevin Spacey drops by the Hour of Spin. You don't need to watch to know it was a lovefest, in addition to a hate-Republicans-and-conservatives-fest.

    on a lighter note, just watched caught one of the most interesting man in the world commercials I can accurately report that A. there are no similarities to Olbytard B. MIMW isb not a fan of Olbytard or the show and C. if both were in a room ah hell you know the outcome

    It's funny you mention that, IL, because Keithy and actor Jonathan Goldsmith were in a room together at 30 Rock last week.

    geeeze thanks for blowing the fantasy for me another shattered hero

    I didn't mean to. Besides, we don't know what was said. Maybe Goldsmith hated the experience and politely smiled for the camera.

    We do know this much though, When Goldsmith kicks the bucket he will be outed by The Hefty One as a "Countdung viewer and fan"

    Mediaite's Jon Bershad removed all ideological doubt by posting that he found Olbermahn's lousy, malicious impressions of Lou, Rushbo, and Mr. Bill funny. Keith's impressions (and catchphrases) were funny on ESPN and Fox Sports, but no longer. Now, it's character assassination.
    Having said that, Jon is free to find whatever he wants funny and be as left as he wants. A pleasure, sir. Great Thanks.

    Olby's in the tub while Maddow lookalike Chris Hayes fills in. Different host, same vitriol, same echo chamber. Case in point: #3: A hate Fox fest.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you, THE VIDEO OF THE YEAR

    Fitting for Bathtub Boy.

    Well, have Rachel drag out the DVD player and put in repeats of "To Catch a Predator" for the next two weeks. 2010 is in the books on Olby Planet. It's been a great year on Olby Watch, enjoyed it with all you guys. More success and hopefully, the END OF OLBY this coming year.

    I'll be spending the next week in Las Vegas, will be back Christmas Eve. So everybody sign your organ donor cards, cause I still need a kidney. Hopefully in the new year, all of us will be safe and well.

    So have fun and .... Let's be careful out there.

    And coal in Keithy's stocking.

    Whoops, sorry! I mixed up videos.


    He's hackneyed, angry, and bitter

    Shut down his account on Twitter

    Fox Haters Week in Review, with Olby in the mix.

    People have commented about this before, but it is rather ridiculous how MSNBC seems to just shut down on the weekends, and rerun crime investigation shows or whatever. FOX and CNN run real time shows on the weekends. For MSNBC to just write off weekends and holidays is really strange, like they don't care if they lose money doing it.

    The Hefty One caves in on banning himself from his own twitter page from The TWITter:

    Wow that was quick. Can't imagine what it would be like playing the board game RISK with Der Kommisar.

    I'm surprised at how quiet this post has been. Wait, no I'm not.

    "The Hefty One caves in on banning himself from his own twitter page from The TWITter:"

    Not surprising. Didn't he promise to reinstate those ha banned in that period? I'm sure his fans will hold him to that.

    "For MSNBC to just write off weekends and holidays is really strange, like they don't care if they lose money doing it."

    You do understand it costs money to provide original television right? They probably save money doing this, which is why Olbermann and Maddow can brag about making all that dough for MSNBC. Remember NBCU is so cheap they started running movies on The Weather Channel, though I'm not sure if they do that anymore.

    You know how most of us think MSNBC is a joke? No one knows that better than the brass at NBCU. There's no need to waste money on original programming when you know your already small base isn't going to watch.

    Before the MSNBC defenders come in and bash generalities, yes, MSNBC does cover the news on the weekends...but from what I've seen not past 3 P.M. eastern. By then it's rape and prison docs.

    And yes, when breaking news that fits their ideology such as Health Care and DADT votes, MSNBC is first on the scene.

    And yes, when a Muslim with a bomb in his crotch tries to blow up a plane on Christmas, MSNBC comes in an hour after it happened with a news flash followed by more prison docs.
