  • Olbermann Continues to be a Hypocrit

    Keith Olbermann, former sports announcer turned Democratic-controlled liberal hack, has once again showed his incredible lack of integrity and the depths of hypocrisy he is willing to sink to.

    On October 20, 2009, he spent significant time praising the Obama's Administration attacks on Fox News. Seems that he completely approves of the White House dropping its veil and getting dirty with members of the media.

    Amazing how much difference a year makes. In August of last year, Olbermann went on one of his leftist rants attacking John McCain after McCain's camp made comments critical of the bias that exists in "mainstream" media, specifically his paycheck signing network, MSNBC.

    Even better yet, in April of 2008, Olbermann named members of Bush's Administration the World's Worst for taking on NBC's bias and journalistic malpractice (to borrow a word from Fred.)

    The best part of all this is a little comment that Olbermann made in this last clip:

    Maybe if Olbermann wants to be taken seriously, he should review his archives....

    Olbermann is no worse than Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, etc when it comes to the "integrity" or "ethics" department. They're all entertainers and shouldn't be taken seriously and they all have the same amount of stupid comments made...

    Secondly, I still think its much easier to assume FOX News is biased, as opposed to MSNBC. Not because FOX leans right and MSNBC left...but because of those memo's from the person in charge of FOX's News Programming that was telling his anchors and commentators how to tilt stories to favor the Bush WH...

    Also, the Obama WH was critical of FOX News...at least we haven't heard stories of them paying columnist to write favorably of their policies yet...lol

        I think Olbermann is very smart. Same way I think O'Reily and Limbaugh are very intelligent people...who willingly and knowingly say things to create attention, aka viewers, aka ratings, aka $$$...

          No, they just assume that they control the "mainstream" media outright.

              I didn't watch the video, but could you summarize how what the Obama WH has done is worse than what I mentioned in my post? Precedent is precedent...especially when it comes to the President...

                I'm calling you out on this for the THIRD TIME now. I could have understood you being misinformed the first time, but now you are intentionally spreading lies.

                The judgment your talking about had NOTHING to do with Fox News claiming they weren't news. It revolved around the applicability of Florida's Whistleblower law, which the court found that the rules cited in the original lawsuit did not meet the criteria set forward in the laws of Florida that this case was brought under.

                Here's the link to the ACTUAL opinion from the court:

                  Did I say it was worse?

                    Yes. "No, they assume they control the mainstream media outright". That quoted to seemed to imply the Obama WH had larger media-infractions than those of which I listed of the previous. My mistake if I interpreted differently than you intended...

                      The only problem with Paul Harvey is that the last 10-15 years of his life he'd contradict himself alot. Though, I'm sure due to his age, others were writing his material.
