OLBERMANN ALIENATES EVEN MORE PEOPLE
www.jedeckert.com ^ | March 8, 2010 | JedEckert2000

Posted on 03/08/2010 3:27:14 PM PST by JedEckert2000

Keith Olbermann will not host his own show, but has taken time from taking care of his father for a little blog war. Now, why would an already-imploding blowhard pick an immature fight with a popular young sports columnist? Nobody wants try to get inside the head of the increasingly unstable Keith, but going after Bill Simmons seems like another sign that his fragile emotional state is nearing Armageddon and why NBC execs are increasingly worried.

Last week, “The Sports Guy” wrote a column arguing that Tiger Woods comeback on the golf course would be more difficult than Ali returning to boxing after avoiding the Vietnam draft. That might be dumb, but the guy is paid to give provocative opinions on sports-related topics. What’s the big deal? It’s called free speech.

gotta give the Olberdork this much credit though, he does describe himself nicely:

"I am again left to marvel how somebody can rise to a fairly prominent media position with no discernible insight or talent, save for an apparent ability to mix up a vast bowl of word salad very quickly."

ooops, hold on, you mean that was NOT the Olberdork's mini-autobiography?

You gotta watch that clip of Olbermann. I believe by the end of May, he’s going to get canned from MSNBC and he’s going to do something tragic. The guy clearly isn’t playing with a full deck of cards.

A thought comes to mind, but it's too crude, even when Olberdork is concerned.

They should be worried. Keith is about to blow up big time. I can hear Bach’s Toccata & Fugue in D minor thundering in the background now as Keith sprays bullets of his AK47 in the studio while yelling that each of his victims are the “worst person in the world”.

I’d suggest an increase in security now.

I'll bet his dismal rating have finally caught up to him. "Taking a break to spend time with the family" has always been kind of another way of saying, 'left in lieu of being fired".

Wait! We’re talking about media, so it’s instead “Rush’s Fault!”

Somehow we have to get Oberdick off that NFL football
panel. I shut the sound off when Oberdick is on. He adds NOTHING to the panel.

If his vision is so bad he can’t drive and his personality is so bad he can’t get to first base with women, I think he’s already reached tragedy. Considering all his moolah, how much more tragic can it get?

One can only hope !!!

Personally, I'd like to see him pull out a noose, toss the end over a lighting support, leap up on his desk, pull it tight and take a flying leap while screaming "I'm the worst person of the week"

Of course on live TV

I believe that the “football guys” are really emarrassed
to death by Oberdick. I saw the look on ones face last year
that I had to laugh at. The look said: “What the hell is that dork talking about?”

I had the same thought about Olbermann. I was pretty upset over his description of his dad’s horrific illness. As far out there as KO is that’s got to be pushing him over the edge. Who would be surprised if we heard tomorrow that he’d stepped in front of a train? That’s the impression he gives me.

February saw ratings plunge beneath last year’s by 43% among 25-54 viewers and 29% in total viewership.

At the same time, FOX News continues its “mammoth growth.” Olbermann’s envy of all things FOX is palpable when he does things like scream, “I loathe FOX” or allege that FOX News President Roger Ailes deliberately attempts to “[inspire] fear” in people and is out to get him.

http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/03/keith_olbermann_as_the_spittle.html

when NBC executives and others seek to remind him of life’s little burdens (you can’t verbally abuse women in the office, you can’t verbally abuse women out of the office, etc.) he sometimes hides under his desk

name the 50-year-old man who hasn’t hidden in the bathtub when an employer — in this case, NBC — sends a limousine to take him to work.

The NBC/Comcast merger is in work with congressional hearings still going on this week. Unlike NBC Comcast cares about making money so many of the goofs at MSNBC may have to show results or be shown the door.

Olbermann mum on his employer’s coverage of mostly white olympics

American Thinker (blog) - Bill Zwerger - Mar 1, 2010

In a sublime display of irony, hot on the heels of Keith Olbermann’s insolent diatribe against the alleged lack of minority representation at Tea Party

Olbermann’s ‘Federal Budget Debt’ Blunder
2010 February 27
by NewsReal Blog
.by Larry Elder

MSNBC’s “Countdown” show host, Keith Olbermann, recently claimed that today’s “federal budget debt” is “far less than it was throughout the Reagan administration.” He also said it is “about the same as it was in 1970.” Is he right? Tonight’s countdown:

10) What is a “federal budget debt”? No researcher, intern or night security guard told him that there is no such thing? No one fact checked him before he went on-air? Add this to the ever-growing catalog of Olbermann’s greatest hits kept by the indispensable NewsBusters.org.

Thanks, RT. That's Huma Abedin, aide to HRC, lurking in the background and whispering pleasantries in her ear.

I have to admit, Olbermann’s career circling the toilet makes fascinating watching. The idiots who decided to pay him $7.5 million per year must be desperately trying to figure out a way to get rid of him.
