Keith Olbermann on Gwen Ifill Translated
This video debunks 100% of the spin put out by the Leftwing blogs that the McCain camp should have known about Gwen Ifill. The fact of the matter is that there was no story about her book. All the mentions of her book were in other obscure stories. Well, you’ll see after watching this.
Between Palin (Heath) and Olbermann
Both Sarah (Heath) Palin and Keith Olbermann have been sportscasters. Sarah Heath got on with her life. Keefums is still Keefums. (HT, Jake Tapper)
Why Keith Olbermann’s claim to have lost five friends on Sept 11th is important
We first need to do a little review of the events that started Olbermann’s rise – please bear with me. After a bizarre exit from ESPN, he did a year of “All Lewinsky, All The Time TV”. Apparently that did not give him the “hard news” chops he craved, so he took a little hiatus, doing a radio show for ABC.
Obama’s Campaign Slinging Low Blows
Obama’s campaign recently came out with this doozie: “It is shameful and downright perverse for the McCain campaign to use a bill that was written to protect young children from sexual predators as a recycled and discredited political attack against a father of two young girls – a position that his friend Mitt Romney also holds. Last week, John McCain told Time magazine he couldn’t | Read More »
Some friendly advice to Chris Matthews regarding Keith Olbermann
Chris, I feel sorry for you. I remember watching you way back when – life was good, discussions were lively and you were the MAN. You lent MSNBC some stature, some gravitas, some credibility. Of course, you were a little self-absorbed, but I overlooked that. Heck, you even guest hosted Rush’s show, even though it turned into a bit of a monologue – “Peace Corp, | Read More »
Long Time Coming
In yet another “man bites dog” story, a cable TV show decided to try to emulate Fox News–except with ideological leanings on the other side of what Fox’s are perceived to be–and found its fate to be precisely the same as the fates of most radio programs that try to emulate the success of Rush Limbaugh even as they take the opposite political tack: MSNBC | Read More »
MSNBC makes changes
There are so many gems in this article about shuffling at MSNBC that it’s hard to decide where to begin…. After months of accusations of political bias and simmering animosity between MSNBC and its parent network NBC, the channel decided over the weekend that the NBC News correspondent and MSNBC host David Gregory would anchor news coverage of the coming debates and election night. Mr. | Read More »
This one kind of speaks for itself.
Via Ace, OlbermannWatch brings us this: The good news is that more people are probably watching this on RedState than saw it on TV.
Well, isn’t that a shame: Olbermann pulled from RNC coverage.
Him doing real work for a change might have made for a refreshing change, but not to be, not to be: Keith Olbermann was pulled from St. Paul to anchor MSNBC’s storm coverage from New York, with his seat beside Chris Matthews filled by David Gregory. Capus said political considerations had nothing to do with that move; Olbermann has been sharply critical of the GOP. | Read More »
The internecine series of hissy fits at MSNBC
UPDATE: More good MSNBC feud stuff from Jossip. And (via Michael Calderone), the WSJ’s Rebecca Dana thinks that this public/private war might be due to the absence of the late Tim Russert and the vacuum left in his place. There is a third network for cable news, and they are… well, MSNBC. Sure, they’ve dropped the MS, and sometimes NBC must feel that way, but | Read More »
