Olbermann Lays Out Right-Wing Conspiracy Behind Faked Memos (Brent Bozell ID's Buckhead)
Media Research Center ^ | 9/14/04 | Brent Baker

Posted on 09/14/2004 1:55:06 PM PDT by gopwinsin04

The originator of the online discrediting of the Killian memos identifed himself only as 'Buckhead,' but a little sleuthing on the website pulls up his other postings and thus a lot more about him.

On the site, (MSNBC displays FreeRepublic.com page with the Buckhead posting) Buckhead claims he is a lawyer from the Atlanta area who participated last month in a meeting of lawyers for Bush-Cheney, an organization he said will be called upon in the event there are election irregularities and everyone winds up in court again.

He says he was worked for a Congressman prominent in GOP legal circles down in Georgia.

So the Killian documents come out and are almost immediately questioned by a lawyer with Republican ties and are distributed to other news organiztions without comment by the White House and they nly have one of their principal endorsers (Bobby Hodges) retract his endorsement.

Keith Olbermann thinks he's so darn clever, but he's not. He himself admits that the documents are obvious forgeries, but he's still puzzled that Buckhead could figure this out so quickly, and it must be because of some nefarious Republican ties. He's arguing out of both sides of his mouth here. The real question for Olbermann is why he, and all the rest of the MSM, as well as the DNC, thought the docs were real before bloggers pointed out the errors.

The liberal media thinks they can convince the masses that the content of phony, set-up, lying documents should be discussed - even after discovering they are phony?

And these people think they are the elite ruling class?

I don't know many people who study scams to see the "truth" of the message.

Maybe this is why they are so concerned about criminals - they chose to ignore the fraud, the crime, the lying and concentrate on what they are trying to say.

Guess they expect us to ignore the fraud, the lying, the corruption of the democrat party and listen to what they - the ruling elite - want us to believe.

No. America is full of people that respect honor and integrity - we look for it in others, especially our leaders. Don't expect us to find it in the democrat party and, therefore, we won't find a leader there either.

Intelligence, content is not determined by english usage or spelling - no matter how others will say it is. Proper usage only promotes the "impression" that there is intelligence.

tw ways basically, just look up someones profile and then click In Forum. The other way is to search on Google for your screenname and freerepublic at the same time. That's how I discovered I was being quited in a number of leftie websites. Of course you gotta be here a while and post a lot before they do a profile on you. Eevntually they build up a dossier that ends up on Hillary's collection of members of the VRWC.

I wish you could get ANYONE in the press to take a good long look at this:

If it's something the MSM wants to see (i.e. the Killian "memos"), it gets a cursory glance, a "looks good to me", and a "run with it."

If it's something the MSM doesn't want to see (i.e. irrefutable proof that the Killian "memos" are fakes), it's "Who came up with this and how does he know Karl Rove? What's his blood type? Who does he work for? Did he actually SEE someone create these fakes, or is it just pure conjecture?"

Buckhead did not put himself/herself in the public arena.

I totally agree, mk. It was a post here and that was it. Others sent the post elsewhere with lightening speed and we were off to the races.

Olberman is such a jerk (YEAH, and I hope YOU'RE reading this...JERK). LOL, Sean Hannity just said Olberman linked his website to the Playgirl's Sexist Newsguy or whatever it was to get the votes.

I'm sure there are far more members with direct ties to the Kerry campaign...it's just that their accounts don't seem to have a great life expectancy.

Cue trailer parody:

Buckhead: "I can't remember anything that happened more than two weeks ago. My first memory is of posting on Free Republic."

Narrator: "Jason Buckhead was Karl Rove's top agent."

MoveOn.org donor: "YOU! STOP RIGHT THERE!" (Scene of incredible violence ensues, Buckhead decapitates MoveOn.org donor with a CD-ROM of TrueType fonts.)

Narrator: "But he's about to become John Kerry's top target."

Karl Rove: "He's been trained to recognize fonts, conditioned to understand kerning and tab stops. Kerry will do anything to stop him."

Narrator: "Based on true events...The Buckhead Identity."

I went down to Daytona Beach a year or two after HS during spring break. We visited these girls who had rented an apt. for a week and they had pinups from that magazine on the walls. I thought it was weird. Guess they couldn't find any real guys. :)

Olbermann on yesterday's (September 13, 2004) edition of Countdown:

"Nor has anybody yet explained how the documents came to be so quickly and thoroughly refuted on a right-wing Web site not two hours after they were first revealed on CBS. The originator of the online discrediting of the Killian memos identified himself only as 'Buckhead,' but a little sleuthing on the Web site on which he posted his typographical criticism pulls up all his other postings and thus a lot more info about him. On the site [on screen MSNBC displayed a FreeRepublic.com page with a "Buckhead" posting], Buckhead claims he is a lawyer from the Atlanta area who participated last month in a meeting of lawyers for Bush-Cheney, an organization he said will be called upon in the event there are election irregularities and everybody winds up in court again. He says he has worked for a Congressman. He says he considers himself prominent in GOP legal circles in Georgia. So the Killian documents come out and are almost immediately questioned by a lawyer with Republican ties and are distributed to other news organizations without comment by the White House and they suddenly have one of their principal endorsers [Bobby Hodges] retract his endorsement. How many rats do you smell?"

But where is the cafe printing on quality t's or polo shirts? Russell athletic makes good t's, so does Sear's Landing (whatever it is?). Everlast. And Ashcroft makes some good quality non-knit polos. Even those from Mervyn's Cambridge Classic Performance aren't half bad. There are some outdoor outfitters with good baseball caps (though people are wearing those less). But I doubt the online cafe press's would use such.
