    Olbermann Watch, "persecuting" Keith since 2004

    December 8, 2010
    Olbermann Tries to Manufacture Anti-Tax-Deal Steamroller

    Bathtub Boy

    Never mind that most sober-minded, clear-thinking analysts have concluded that the President's proposed deal, or something very close to it, will be enacted into law before the end of the year. The infamous, deplorable Keith Olbermann has chosen to make this issue his latest Malmedy.

    If you're new to OlbyWatch, this was a dishonest smear concoted by Oralmann about an O'Reilly mistake, ginned up to change the subject from his own embarrassing use of the Nazi Sieg Heil salute in public. Keith lied about the details, and then spent a week whipping up his viewers by telling them that "outrage" was "growing", "all over the nation", etc etc. Except that it wasn't. Other than Olby and his pet blue blogs, it was a big ho-hum. The story wasn't all but ignored by mainstream news sources like AP, Reuters, etc. After about a week that "growing outrage" vanished from OlbyPlanet--the steamroller never materialized, and Edward R Olbermahn turned his demagoguery in other directions.

    Well now, we have the making of another Olbermahn campaign to manufacture a groundswell of opposition, this time to the tax-deal. Herr Olbermahn would like nothing better than to be seen as the leader who galvanized opposition and sunk the deal. So you'll find that to be a theme on tonight's Hour of Spin:

    • Only 12 Dem Senators support the tax deal! (Um, only 12 so far, Einstein.) Vermont's socialist, Bernie Sanders, and Geno Robinson will report on the blowback the Building To A CRESCENDO!!!!
    • The opposition is so strong, it could affect other votes too, because the Outrage Is GROWING!!!!
    • Of course, attack on a Rep or two (R of course).
    • Defending Julian Assange, hopefully this time without Olby citing an anti-Semitic holocaust-denier as his 'evidence'.

    Comments are open!

    Like when your pet President actually bargains with those DAMN REPUBLICANS! It's the WPITW Abstract. Fact Free News for the Fact Free MSSR fans. (sorry for the cussing Mike)

    Bronze: Barry Faulter- Owner for a Jewlery company for thinking that Jesus is coming soon and the end of the world is coming and having a sell because of it.

    Silver: John Cook for the sin of wanting to out a Republican house speaker in Tx. because he's Jewish. As usual, Keith is not reporting the whole story.

    GOLD!!!!: Candace Miller- For the sin of mispronouncing "Wiki-Leaks" as "Wiki-LINKS"! OMG! She mispronounced a word. What a horrible person! She should be dragged out in the streets and pelted with grapes. Remember, No mistakes on olby planet. NO FORGIVENESS EITHER!

    What a tool.

    Another award winning countdown to Keith's contract going bye-bye!

    Wikilinks equals worse? Funny but I don't recall corpseman (not corpsman) being considered worse, or even being talked about. I also don't remember hearing about how some politician claimed that Social Security was started for widows and orphans (which is wrong). Or how about that guy that said our health care costs would go down 3000% once the HCR bill passed?

    Oh that's right, that was Obama and therefore above reproach. Man I was wishing for an Olbermann free Christmas, maybe Santa should be made worse person in the world for not delivering on that one.

    Syvyn11, I was at Penn Station on Sunday and someone stood by a Subway entrance holding a sign that said the end was near and judgment day was coming in May. He gets my bronze.

    Judgement day is coming soon?

    GREAT! Then I don't have to pay back my student loans!

    At around 8:15, this fatass called Assage an " internet hero" when forecasting upcoming segments. That's like his hero Marrow calling the Rosenburgs heros for stealing secrets for the Soviets.

    An "O'Reilly Factor" e-mail from tonight agrees with Herr Olbermahn:
    Theodore Rossendahl, Whitefish, MT: "Julian Assange is a patriot for allowing people a glimpse of how the U.S. government spins the truth."

    Another e-mail sees it differently:
    Kenn Williams, Crete, NE: "We need Mitch Rapp to stop Assange."
    Mr. Bill's response: "Mitch Rapp being Vince Flynn's heroic character in the best-seller, 'American Assassin.' Good book; I'm readin' it now."

    Assange an internet hero? When Assange meets his maker in prison, will Der Kommisar invite Joan Baez on his show to re-write the song "The Ballad of Sacco and Vanzetti" in his honor? That would probably be a gig that's too good to pass up (playing for an audience of 10 rather than 4). Am I the only one to notice how it was explained in exact detail in segment #1 to be perfectly fine and lawful for the hackers for wikileaks to shut down servers of credit card companies and were they outraged about the US targeting money funneling and laundering to bank accounts of terrorists overseas?

    Is there why this site is endorsing the purchase of "Pitchforks & Torches"? An ad for the book is at the top of the main page, I thought you guys wouldn't want people buying his book and giving him money.

    I don't get that, either. I also saw anti-Carl Paladino ads before Election Day. I have a feeling ads are generated automatically. It's like how Newshounds has had FBN and Goldline ads on their site.

    "Is there why this site is endorsing the purchase of "Pitchforks & Torches"? An ad for the book is at the top of the main page, I thought you guys wouldn't want people buying his book and giving him money."

    Free speech maybe?

    And for the record I don't think anyone here is too concerned about someone buying Olbermann's book.

    The ads are created based on key-words that appear on the site. Therefore a sight about Olbermann will naturally pull ads about Olbermann, good and bad. This is a mindless algorithm that website administrators have little control over.

    That explains it. Olby was attacking Paladino during the campaign, so anti-Paladino and/or pro-Cuomo ads popped up. We talk about "Pitchforks & Torches," ads for that pop up. We bring up his Special Ed Komments on the tax cut extension compromise, an ad from Bold Progressives pops up. In fact, I see that ad right now.
    It also explains why Fox and Goldline ads found their way on to Newshounds. They bash FNC (including Glenn Beck) and FBN constantly.

    Just got back to J$'s site after posting last night.

    HEY MIKE C.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You need to be brave enough and man enough to name the person/entity that you are reprimanding for "language" violations (in YOUR opinion). Some ideas need a little umph to be expressed accurately (not cheaply). We are not all as adept at word craft as you.

    Supersensitivity belongs on the FAR LEFT or FAR RIGHT! I really enjoy visiting and supporting this site, and taking my shots at "the deplorable one" but, it won't kill me to express in my own fashion elsewhere.

    If I offend.........REGRETS and ADIOS!

    I was just disgusted by your baby-[something]-colored clothing descriptions. That's all. I also haven't liked the s- and f-bombs on here in general. I didn't mean to offend you, DJ, or anyone else. I'm sorry. In private, I swear sometimes, but I try to keep clean in public in case prospective employers search me online. Again, that's just me. I've spent two days trying to turn OlbyWatch into Johnny Dollar's Place, but I should know one size doesn't mean another. I'm sorry.

    Doesn't *fit* another.

    Now that we have two Olbermann supporters hanging around why don't one of you try to explain to me why Olbermann's new sign off makes any sense? "X days since Republicans took control of the House. Mr. Boehner, where are the jobs?" Do you as Olbermann fans realize that republicans haven't actually taken control of anything yet? Or do you just buy the garbage Obly shovels? If you don't agree with it how do you defend the fact he keeps saying it (over 30 times now)?

    NP Mike C. No need to apologize. Besides, next to me, you'll look GREAT to searching prospective employers!

    While everyone is singing kumbaya and smoking the PC pipe, via Michelle Bachmann on facebook: The House just passed taxpayer funded benefits for illegal immigrants. I voted NO on the DREAM Act.

    Now the liberal media can treat yesterday's bash obama fest as a one-time lovers spat.

    Done. Passed 216 to 198 in the house. Nancy Pelosi wants her last pound of the gavel to be America's Death Penalty. Maybe Der Kommisar on M.S.S.R. can ask John Boehner when he officially becomes speaker, (nevermind the americans, the 26ers, the 52sers, the 76ers, and the 99ers) Where are the jobs for the Now-legal, former Undocumented Workers?

    M.S.S.R........Your source for all Communist Propaganda, All the time.

    Mike C. don't apologize for your plea of civility; that makes no sense. As a devoted follower of this site for several years now I have not been reading the comments lately as has been my custom since discovering the site due to the uptick in profanity from the likes of certain newcomers. Don't get me wrong, I'm not offended by the language itself; I just could not stand to see this site turn into a refuge for uncreative white trash rednecks...and I'm sorry but that is just how certain poster have been coming across and it has turned me away from here for a while. It's not like liberals need any help giving us that label; it does not help us to help them in that regard.

    So please, I ask ya, be creative and make a point if you must employ profanity; otherwise you'll just look uneducated and a liberal is what I'm saying (at least the ones on left-leaning blogs).

    The only reason I'm back by the way is because MKDAWUSS reemerged; I knew this because there was an unusual amount of comments under the December 7th thread. Did he ever prove his assertion that Johnny Dollar took Olbermann out of context?

    Speaking of the previous thread, Chip and Dale were the cartoon chipmunks you were referring to Wolverine. (How's that for a closer to this post?)

    "Is there why this site is endorsing the purchase of "Pitchforks & Torches"? An ad for the book is at the top of the main page, I thought you guys wouldn't want people buying his book and giving him money."

    Wild guess here, Olbermann/Publisher pay to have that ad here.
    I'm sure Olbermann watch is more than happy to take Olbermanns money, ROFLMAO!

    On tonight's Kountdown episode
    Keith Olbermahn's head might explode
    Olby's dismayed
    And feels betrayed
    He needs a Paxil overload

    "Did he ever prove his assertion that Johnny Dollar took Olbermann out of context?"

    No, he didn't. At least not publicly.

    And ryanhippftw didn't explain how unnamed "spokesperson" is better than unnamed "source" nor did he share any examples of Olbermann Watch ripping TVNewser for being unfair.

    I'm sure ryanhippftw has a witty comeback along the lines of "who cares" or "get a life", both comments full of irony.

    And Mike C., stop apologizing for "offending" people who behave like Alan Grayson.

    You're right, CJ. If some people here think I post too much or don't want to be told to be civil, then as Andy Levy would say (and he's quoting somebody, but I don't know who), I apologize for nothing. At least, I don't apologize for my efforts in encouraging civility and posting when something's on my mind or I have links to share.

    Pewp head, you hit the nail on the head! One, don't expect his supporters to really think that in depth when it comes to critiques of their dear leader Olbs. Two, you'd think by now that Bear would at least consider that when he modifies his shtick a little, what would he say if Bill or Glenn were doing it? Naturally, he'd smear them, but because he's doing it? Well, what could be wrong then.

    Anyway, if the rumor is true about him being called by his bosses for the Bristol controversy, does this point in the direction that Comcast may very well, despite his ratings and money he makes for MSDNC, cut him loose anyway? What of this war with his underling Phil? Where could it lead? SIGH!/MSDNCTeabaggers

    To be fair I don't think ryanhippftw has declared himself an Olbermann fan. Saying your left doesn't make you an Olbermann fan.

    MKDAWUSS on the other hand is just a Kos lapdog and it's possible he's not even smart enough to understand what Olbermann is talking about.

    Has Olberdork attacked any of Sarah Palin's other children yet? Why stop at Bristol? He could at least make Trig the WPITW, proclaim how he should have been aborted instead of being a burden on society.

    I'm sure Olby floated the rumor a few years ago that Trig was actually Bristol's child and that Todd impregnated his own daughter. That seems to be Keith's speed.

    Uhh, guys, Keith ever did the Nazi salute in public. He was waving, and when you snap a picture of someone mid-wave, it ends up looking like the Nazi salute.
