Keith Olbermann’s B.O. Problem

Let’s admit the reality–Keith Olbermann stinks. But I am not talking about an appalling lack of personal hygiene. Instead, it is his appalling hypocrisy. After spending most of the last year rebuking Hillary Clinton as a candidate who “would do anything” to win, he is now conspicuously silent as he reports on Barack Obama pandering to special interests and surrendering political positions previously considered immovable and sacrosanct.

Glenn Greenwald offers a clever and devastating analysis of Olbermann’s malady with respect to FISA:

On January 31 of this year, Keith Olbermann donned his most serious face and most indignant voice tone to rail against George Bush for supporting telecom immunity and revisions to FISA. In a 10-minute “Special Comment,” the MSNBC star condemned Bush for wanting to “retroactively immunize corporate criminals,” and said that telecom immnity is “an ex post facto law, which would clear the phone giants from responsibility for their systematic, aggressive and blatant collaboration with [Bush's] illegal and unjustified spying on Americans under this flimsy guise of looking for any terrorists who are stupid enough to make a collect call or send a mass email.”

Olbermann added that telecom amnesty was a “shameless, breathless, literally textbook example of Fascism — the merged efforts of government and corporations that answer to no government.” Noting the numerous telecom lobbyists connected to the Bush administration, Olbermann said:
This is no longer just a farce in which protecting telecoms is dressed up as protecting us from terrorists conference cells. Now it begins to look like the bureaucrats of the Third Reich, trying to protect the Krupp family, the industrial giants, re-writing the laws of Germany for their benefit.

. . . .Last night, Olbermann invited Newsweek’s Jonathan Alter onto his show to discuss Obama’s support for the FISA and telecom amnesty bill (video of the segment is here ). There wasn’t a syllable uttered about “immunizing corporate criminals” or “textbook examples of Fascism” or the Third Reich. There wasn’t a word of rational criticism of the bill either. Instead, the two media stars jointly hailed Obama’s bravery and strength — as evidenced by his “standing up to the left” in order to support this important centrist FISA compromise . . . .

Leave aside the fact that Jonathan Alter, desperate to defend Obama, doesn’t have the slightest idea of what he’s talking about. How can a bill which increases the President’s authority to eavesdrop with no warrants over the current FISA law possibly be described as a restoration of the Fourth Amendment? That would be like describing a new law banning anti-war speech as a restoration of the First Amendment.

As Jim Dempsey and Marty Lederman both note, not even the nation’s most foremost FISA experts really know the full extent to which this bill allows new warrantless spying. Obviously, Jonathan Alter has no idea what he’s saying, but nonetheless decrees that this bill — now that Obama supports it — restores the Fourth Amendment. Those are the Orwellian lengths to which people like Olbermann and Alter are apparently willing to go in order to offer their blind devotion to Barack Obama.

Greenwald’s complete post (click here) is worth your time. And Olbermann? Well, he apparently is two ketchup packets shy of pitching a fit and is under extreme emotional distress as he comes to grip with the reality that he is not in the running to replace Timmy Russert. Poor Keith. Looks like he is auditioning to be the propaganda minister for a Brack Obama reign. If suspending critical thinking and indulging in hyperbole are requisite skills then Olbermann has the job nailed.

    Matthews’ and Olbermann’s sexim turned me away from their shows long ago.

    What makes me angrier and more vindictive are the young women who don’t see sexism whem it mocks them through the t.v. screen daily. They have bought in from an early age to aspire to be nothing but objects, Barbie dolls in their faux CEO suits and toy cars, etc. They fear a woman like Hillary more than do the likes of Matthews and Olbermann. She is a woman who is smarter than most men, a woman who has accomplished more than most men, yet so many ment don’t “like” her. She is not really “likeable enough” (because they could pick up on the facetiousness of O’s comment). More than anything, they want to be really likeable.

    That’s what you see in so many of the young female t.v. talking heads, a sincere desire to be one of the guys.

    If they did ever have to recognize the real existence of sexism in their lives, the cognitive dissonance would be too great for them.

    I remember Archie’s Gloria dragging Edith to a feminist consciousness raising group. It was a funny sad show. Poor Edith. It’s time to drag a few of the young women who are Obots into some consciousness raising groups, too. Then shows like Matthews’ and Olbermann’s would not even be topics of discussion because they could not last more than a week.

  • jimbob

    Let’s deal with facts: If Hillary accepts the Vice-Presidency, she can never be President. As VP, she can’t challenge BO for the party’s nomination in 2012. And that will be her last opportunity to run for President. The best thing we can do is ignor HRC’s call to get on the Obama train. We have to vote for McCain. We can’t sit this out. Either BO will be president in 2009 or Hillary will be President in 2013. It’s one or the other. A grim choice must be made by all HRC supporters.

  • Victoria

    Do they need any further proof of how much this man is willing to pander? So now, after getting reamed over his sudden reveral on the FISA bill he’s going to give a special comment and make it all better huh? He’s got some of the craziest (and none too bright) fans I’ve ever seen. Go to Kos, watch the insane posturing and falling at his feet that goes on there. He’s on tv! He must be right! For a group of people that prides themselves on being able to see through the BS of the Bush junta, they surely don’t mind getting sucked in to believing every word that falls out of Olbermann’s lying mouth do they?

  • mee

    yes we do need to wise up to MSM…and now PELOSI is trying to control talk radio by introducing a bill that would make sure LIBERALS get equal time on shows like LIMBAUGH AND HANNITY…she wants to appoint a monitor at FCC to make it 50/50 air time ..
    now people we need to realize what is really happening when MSM AND TALK-SHOW’S are being controlled by “special interest groups” and we thought GOVT.. was bad.. no it is who is controlling the CONGRESS that is who we need to be wary of…could it be the TRILATERIAL COMMISSION at hand???new world order????interesting if you look at members of TRILATERIAL COMMISSION founded by
    BRZEZINSKI…wake up and realize their is NO CHANGE” WITH OBAMA just socialism and liberialism

    The American public just has to wake up. Boycott MSM. They are controlled and scrippted outlets for international corporations. We have no free press. There are true investigative reporters. Americans now have to turn to the internet for the truth.
    The same corporation which control media, are the money which props up the myth of Homobana. He is also controlled, blackmailed and compromised candidate. For what is its worth, at the end of this election cycle we need to break the corporate monolpies which try to control what Americans are told. What is happening to our democracy? Does anyone else note how MSNBC and CNN are now pushing women front and center as commentators, speaking out regarding how Obama is God’s answers for women issues? These fools are as phony as they come. Boycott MSNBC, CNN, Newsweek, NBC and General Electric. Matthews and Olbermann are hyprocrites, right along with Cooper Anerderson, Campbell Brown and that fool Jeff Sanchez, major asshole.

  • Chicago Joe

    I used to be a major KO fan….I was thrilled that someone was saying what I thought about the Bush administration. But no more. Kool-Aid Keith will have a special comment about Obama and FISA, which he characterized as “how he can have his cake and eat it too.” Now an apologist for Obama, KO has lost all credibility. It is sad. He is so gifted with language, to see them used to shill for Barky is pathetic. Countdown has jumped the shark.

    • Kate Sheahan

      Yeah, I used to look forward to the McLaughlin Group, to see Eleanor chew on Pat and Tony, with John telling them to shut up while he egged her on.

      Now she drools for the fool, and it’s really quite disgusting. But John’s not fooled. He’s disgusted over Obama, too.

      I’m running out of shows to watch.

  • Cath

    I saw that segment with Olbermann and Alter and their expected but assinine failure to call Obama to task for his FISA flip-flop. I about puked at the mention of Obama standing up to the Left on this issue.

    You can be sure that if Hillary had done the Obama two-face bit with FISA, Keith would launch another foaming-at-the-mouth rant, complete with varying camera angles and total nastiness. I can just hear him now…

    …”Have you no shame, Senator Clinton.”

    B.S., Keith — and you know it.

    I used to enjoy Olbermann’s show. Not any more.

  • John

    Poor Keith is probably starting to realize his troubles are just beginning. When someone as analytical, thorough, and with excellent “left” credentials, like Glenn Greenwald goes after him, there are not enough “Special Comments” in the world that will save his reputation. He nows knows it is just beginning. Keith wanted to inject himself into areas of which he has no understanding, he wanted to berate others for his own self-aggrandizement. Reap the whirlwind, Keith. Your deconstruction has begun. In a few months, you won’t know whether to shit or go blind, as they used to say.

  • CheatedFLVoter

    I stopped watching NBC/MSNBC and CNN(with the exception of Lou Dobbs) because of their obvious bias a long while back. I never thought I would ever depend on Fox for unbiased reporting. But neither did I think that I, a life-long Dem, would be voting for a Rep.

      voting for a Rep. or Obambi is a scary thing!

      I think I’ll vote for the OTHER girl! :-)

      McKinney it is! (I’m in NC so it won’t matter much) It’s a principle vote.

  • chklaver

    the whole point of fighting the FISA bill was the dangerous precedent posed by giving the telecoms immunity

    Remember, it was supposedly the principle of the thing

    Oh yeah, Obama has no principles
    and the followers are just following their leader’s lack of them

  • Marc

    Ever wonder why Dobermann does not conduct tough interviews? Because he is gutless. He only interviews yes men like former journalist Alter. How sad to see some of these people destroying their journalistic integrity to get on Dobermann’s show. I no longer watch any journalist on nbc/msnbc thanks to Tim “Gotcha” Russert, Chris “Loudmouth” Matthews and Keith Dobermann; the three stooges of nbc/msnbc. All I can say is, I used to watch Edward R. Murrow on TV when I was young. Keith Doberman is no Edward R. Murrow. Mr. Murrow’s family should demand he no longer compares himself to him. He is an absolute disgrace. All the pseudo-journalists on nbc/msnbc have sold their soul to the devil.

  • http://OUTRAGEDBUTNOTSURPRISED bama_barrron

    larry i agree with you on most everything, i guess that is one of the reasons i keep coming to this blog. that being said, some may notice i have been lurking for the most part and not posting for the last three months or so. the reason for this has been my complete disgust with the “new” democratic party and some of the so called liberal mouthpieces like the ego driven keith and the slut randi rhodes. they are impossible to defend, except for the odd senator and house member … down right embarrassing.

    all this being said, i still can not vote for a new war by supporting mcnutso himself … voting for him would surely result in a unilateral attack upon iran … make no mistake about this fact. ergo, i must now vote for the only progressive candidate left in the race … cynthia mckinney. i may be in a minority with this crowd but i expect my views to at least be heard unlike so many other blogs that are just so whinney “faux” liberal. damn we have a tough choice in november … i do know one thing … who ever wins … we have to be ever vigilant.

    • ritamary

      Certainly it is difficult for a life-long Democrat to vote for McCain. My only justification is that I think Obama would be worse. We have no idea what his plans or policies are since he changes every day. All we can judge Obama on are his very poor past record and his loony associates.

      Should I just make a leap of faith that Obama will turn out to be a good guy? Can’t do that from what I have seen of him so far. I will vote for McCain for president and vote for down ticket Democrats.

      My hope is that a Democratic Congress will restrain McCain. I think that is more reasonable than voting for Obama.

    • Dawnelle

    I used to like Keith. He seemed to be absolutely right on everything … until Barack Obama arrived.

    To see him backflip on FISA really saddens me.

  • bobamabomb

    Really, you guys want to attack Obama for capitulating on FISA? You guys were for Hillary, right? She was for the 1st FISA bill, which was even worse than this one. Did you attack HRC for that, or were you pulling an Keith Olbermann before he did? Maybe Keith pulled a Larry Johnson.

    • lastlemming

    Sounds to me like Keith is interviewing (in his mind) for the Press Secretary job should there be a Barry Presidency.

    I wonder if he would bring a knife or gun to his press conferences?

    • Chicago Joe

      Yeah, he can BS us just like Scott Mc Clellan. But Keith likes bigger words so he can demonstrate that he is intellectually superior to the bitter folk. Just like Barack flips, but it is ok, because he is so much smarter than us that he sees arguments at a more abstract level. That is what they have in common, both arrogant, self-centered elitists.

  • catherine

    I have often wondered if Olbermann and Matthews of MSNBC, and Cafferty on CNN got raises once Hillary suspended her campaign. I wonder if they a real kick out her losing? Did they pop the champaign and pat themselves on the back for all the hateful, sexist, and negative reporting they did on her that they hoped would influence mainstream voters against her? I wonder do they feel more like “real” omnipotent men today with real power due to their repeated abusing and kicking of a woman in the gut the way they did and smiling all the way to the bank like real “cool ” guys? I never thought I would have so little respect for mainstream media. I thought only Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter could be so hateful. But I was wrong. Hate is an equal opportunity employer that has no limits. I hope and pray though that one day “what goes around comes around” for Keith, Chris, and Jack and all those who defaced Hillary during the primaries and took joy in it. In my lifetime, I have found that often this is indeed what happens and so I do believe these hateful yellow journalists and their bosses who allowed this to happen to Hillary will one day get their due.

  • Danny

    I cannot even look at let alone listen to the pig KO. Not even one bit interested. And I thought I disliked Chris Matthews.

    Now I have turned off MSNBC for good. I cannot believe what they did to the Clintons – let alone Hillary – complete opinionated television doesn’t resemble a real news channel in the least. Edward R. Morrow turned over in his grave at the sight of the faux msnbcrap

      and a repost, as it is so fitting to this topic of conversation.

      Obama Announces Bold New Economic Policy To Followers in Chicago Today.

      Obama: I wanted to speak to you all, because we are being reminded what bad shape our economy is in.

      (audience cheering and applauding)

      Obama: People are hurting. They’re having difficulty making ends meet. They can’t afford to go to the Doctors. Parents are having to choose between food or gas. (more cheering from the audience). Today Oil has climbed again to the highest price we’ve seen to date. (massive applause now from the audience of followers). And with this news, the Stock Market has taken the 2nd worst hit this year.

      (cheers and applause continuing)

      Obama: We need to take bold action to fix our economy. So today I am announcing I am seizing control of all personal bank accounts, savings, money markets and CD’s and investing them on the Stock Market to kick start our economy. (audience is now giving a standing ovation. Tears are flowing from all the followers in the audience)

      Reporters note: I’ve never seen anything like this. Obama supporters are just so excited with the hope of his bold new policy, they are writing checks out right now and handing them to him Surely Wall Street firms will be elated with this news and I’m sure Obama’s contributions will surge this month..

      **Additional note: News just announced that Senator Obama ran over 2 Nuns on his way to today’s press conference. Senator Obama just confirmed this incident to be correct and stated this new policy was just too important to not continue on to deliver the news and is thrilled to learn the Nuns will survive even though it took an hour for anyone to notice them lying on the street. The Obama followers just took over the stage and microphone to pledge their undying support to Obama.

    Is Olbermann a democrat or a republican? I always thought he was a republican so I haven’t understood his or Matthews for that matter’s O-love, leg tingles. (Beware Matthews, involuntary movement may eb seizures, go talk to Ted Kennedy). I just think they are completely full of it and can’t stand Oblahma, but they don’t wish to pounce until he is the nominee. a clinton vs. McCain election would have been very boring! They will have a great couple of months starting in september, but for now they want all to love the messiah! You have to know they are snickering behind the scenes. Keep in mind Narcissists don’t love others!

    • OBSP

      He’s a Liberal Ahole. Recall, he left MSNBC because of the coverage of the Clinton impeachment. He did not want to cover another Monica story. Matthew is also a liberal ahole, he worked for Jimmy Carter and acts like he having an orgaism everytime he interviews or mentions Carter.

        • ritamary

          I am beginning to think that sexism is so much a part of our culture that many “progressives” are completely blind to it.

          • bmc

            ritamary, I appreciate that thought, because I’ve wondered the same thing.

            But, I finally realized that it isn’t that they are blind to it; it’s that the historical “male privilege” ,which they of course believe is their birthright, gives them the right–in their minds–to denigrate, deride, demean, mock and ridicule women who don’t abide by their “male privilege” social rules. It’s what makes them feel good about themselves; just like racial superiority used to make white people feel good about themselves, because they were better than somebody else–in their twisted little minds, of course.

            Racism isn’t an acceptable form of bigotry in our society anymore, so they have to find something else to make themselves feel superior, so they can feel secure in their “male privilege” and voila! Sexism. They can vent their male-centric desperate insecurities in Sexist commentary. It’s allowed and encouraged at FOX and MSNBC, it’s frequent as well on CNN. This gives them their ego fix. They get to invoke “male privilege” and feel oh-so-superior, and they get paid to do it, disguised as “political analysis and commentary” of course.

            They aren’t blind to what they’re doing; but they are most certainly blind as to why they’re doing it.

        I like this little video. Media matters has a lot of the sexism that was used against Hillary. You know *wink* *wink* the stuff Pelosi never saw or heard because she was much too busy.

        Then there is also this beauty from Matthews.
        Quote from Mattews on the Joe Scarborough show~”Let’s not forget…the reason she’s a U.S. Senator, the reason she’s a candidate for president, the reason she may be a frontrunner, is that her husband messed around”.

      Greenwald is right. They are blindly following their messiah because he has the big D next to his name, no different than the GOP with Bush.

      There’s an old saying at Dailykooks: IOKIYAR (It’s O K if you’re a Republican)

      The New Kos: IOKIYBHO

    nelson- Obama can’t even figure out what his stand on an issue is from day to day…or hour to hour. The only thing Obama can catch is a cold, period.

    Sorry for the language but all I can say is Olbermann is a shameless asshole.

    I’ve been reading a lot of the smaller blogs that are Obama supporters. In every one of them, they are defending Obama and his stand on the FISA bill. I can’t believe my eyes…I had no idea that Kool-Aide could be that addictive or mind altering. And these guys call themselves progressives. Pfft! They nothing but a bunch of morons.

      Check out some of the left-leaning radio host message boards like Malloy’s or Rhodes. Those people are oblivious to reality.

        I don’t know what happen to this people. I used to admire them . Sad to say they drank the KOOL-AIDE, too. Wish they can wake up right now.

      The NY Times published an unbelievable article this morning fawning over Barry’s “artful” move to the center. So what thoughtful people see as a spineless, say-anything-to-win hack changing positions more often than he changes his underwear is obviously the Kool-Aid drinker’s masterful politician. Really, when did flip-flopping become an art form? When Barack Obama started doing it. But of course!

      Kudos to Greenwald for pointing out the KO and Alter are nothing more than hero worshippers. I’m beginning to think these Obamabots are truly mentally unbalanced. Olbermann certainly is.

      It’s the hopium. The Obamites can’t think straight!

    Why is this funny and why are you here?

    true- the imagery is tasteless- but it is a widely known joke. “When did you stop beating your wife?” has been around forever to illustrate a question that is impossible to answer- meaning any answer makes one look bad.

    McCain was really being clever- so thank you for reminding me how much smarter than he is when compared to Obama-mama’s-ding-dong.

    I have a feeling you do not even know what FISA is.

    And what does it have to do with a story about Keith Olbermann?

  • jwrjr

    He is trying to divert attention away from the fact that KO is an a–hole.

  • DirOfTheObv

    You don’t think they have an agenda do ya?

  • glenn

    are you really a Democrat?
