Freerepublic was just called "radical" by a guest on MSNBC's Countdown with Keith Olbermann. Buckhead was mentioned again. They are also discussing conspiracy theories, blogs, and the usual chatter on Dan Rather's nosedive into silliness.
I think he runs a close second to Al Franken but it's not like he hasn't been trying pretty hard lately.
The Naked Conservative Society would like a statement of correction on the matter from CBS.
As do I.
I don't think it's even close. Franken is appalling in many ways, but Olbermann is just plain dumb.
Olbermann reminds folks of the guy they went to high school with.....the one who drew outer space star fighter pictures on his notebook....
The one who took his grandmother to the prom....
I have never felt like I needed to be liberated. My husband of 35 years has taken care of me when I was ill, sometimes for long periods of time. He has made approximately 95% of all the the money our family has earned over the years and best of all he gives it ALL to me to spend in whatever way I see fit. He is a great cook and frequently does the grocery shopping. We both pull our weight when we can; but, when necessary he pulls my weight too without ever complaining. He truly is my night in shining armor and my children and I worship him. I don't EVER want to be liberated from him.
I know some women aren't that lucky. I thank God that I am.
P.S. My husband thinks he is the lucky one.
Travis, Olberman posted "buckhead's" REAL PHOTO and name!!
I took a pic of it with my digital camera, but I don't know how to post a pic on FR.....I can do it with an e-mail, but not on FR....(still in the html sandbox...pre-school)
BIG pic of him wearing glasses,( kinda looks a little like John McEnroe !!) and listed his name under the pic IN BIG LETTERS "Harry W.MacDougal".....REALLY BOLD ON KEITH's PART !!
One has to understand that Olbermann, since he had left SeeBS, has never landed a decent gig.
He had tried ESPN as a sports-hole and it fell flat, zipped around misc local stations, again fell flat, now...he needs to resurrect his moribund so called show and the only thing he can do is piggy back on the "cool-aid drinkers" in the media.
He is/sounds like the "amen" corner of CBSABCCNNPBSNBC and of course PMSNBC his mother ship.
He is a pathetic echo chamber/me-too schmuck who does not even know the meaning of "is".
If anyone in his right mind is paying attention to this clown, he/she need some serious doctor attention!
As for MSNBC, it's the last dying gasps of the liberal media (and their audience of 2)...
Game. Set. Match.
Always worked for me -- spent too much time writing doctrine, then testing it to destruction in the field.
In my case, the Chamorro phonetic equivalent also applies.
Had it not been for FreeRepublic & buckhead & the others that helped him, those memos would have gone on record as truth, CBS sure would not have investigated them, nor would any other news media! CBS & the other liberal media are NOT HAPPY that they have FreeRepublic looking over their shoulders now! They have gotten away with way too much over the years. Times have changed & they DO NOT like it!
As long as we don't misjudge them again. Carter got one term, Clinton got two.
Keep your powder dry and your head up.
Apparently she is a liberal through and through, but she did not directly discuss ideology.
I love it when a liberal calls me an "out of the mainstream, radical extremist." My response: "Let's see, it's true that I am an unapologectic Reaganite. He carried 89 out of 100 states in two elections. How many states did your candidates carry those two elections?"]
Obermann referred to Buckhead, his real name, his work petitioning to disbar X42, and connections to Ken Starr. He said that Buckhead was "not a lawyer with a fetish for fonts. Instead, he is a conservative activist."
Obermann said that about 12 hours after the CBS forgery broadcast, Buckhead had the critique of the font, implying that Buckhead was lying in wait with some sort of corrupt foreknowledge (conspiracy theory alert). O'Brien said that a few hours later it went to Drudge and then onto the mainstream media (MSM).
O'Brien doesn't seem to understand that MSM never parroted FR or the bloggers the way that MSM outlets often parrot each other. Instead, the MSM people consulted their own experts, who confirmed that Buckhead and the other FReepers and bloggers had it right.
O'Brien says that she mounted a defense of the forged documents authenticity because she said "I have some expertise in typography." I must say that she certainly did not appear very bright or knowledgeable about matters. It is unfortunate if she was getting telephone death threats as she claimed following her defense of the forgeries. She also claims to have had to take down her blog because of obscenities people were adding, saying that there is a lot of hostility to people who are anti-Bush. If she was truthful about that (and she appeared credible to me on that point), some people (who think they are on our side) need to cut out their extreme misbehavior.
I have noticed that Dan Rather and most of the talking heads (even on Fox) are saying Burkett was in the Air National Guard rather than the Army National Guard.
Are the Texas Air and Army NG headquarters co-located? If they are not, what was Burkett doing hanging out at the Air NG headquarters when he "saw" the Bush files being tossed? It seems to me that this little point is a rather big deal.
Sounds like they were real desperate to have dug this idiot up. Maybe she stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.
Good point. I stand corrected.
More Kerry campaign footage.
To the Liberals, anything not as Left-wing as MoveOn.org is "radical".
Yeah, and old time 'journalists' use forgeries too!
I'm fixating on the use of the word "old". hehe. Seems someone has finally picked up on the fact we are refering to them as the Old Media, and ourselves as the New Media. Seems that cut deep. LOL
So I'm a radical? Cool. Guess "right-winger" just doesn't have the same zest it used to.
I videotaped the interview.
They talked about "Buckhead" while Olberman mentioned "Free Republic" and showed his picture with his real name under it - explaining that he had been "outed" by the L.A. Times.
In the last minute of the interview, while Olberman showed Free Republic.com on the TV screen, O'Brien said, "Free Republic is a radical web site."
She said that when the Dan Rather memo thing first broke she had made certain comments about it on her web blog, but eventually had to shut it down because some people were coming there and posting obscenities on it. She said, "Thats the way people who don't like George Bush are being treated these days."

What a strange experience. I didn't actuallly meet Keith Olbermann, because I was in a little studio in Midtown Manhattan and the main MSNBC studio is in New Jersey. And I didn't get to say any of what I had hoped to say. Olbermann was going on about how blogs are possibly being used by political parties to put out rumors and spin, and I couldn't think of much to say except "yeah, could be." But I was able to sit in the chair and get words out of my mouth. Also I got picked up by a limo (whoo-hoo!) and got a little gift bag with a coffee cup and coffee and some chocolate-covered macadamia nuts.
They're repeating the show at midnight, eastern time, so you can still catch my television debute! I'm on early and very briefly.
Tomorrow -- back to earth. I've got a plumber coming to fix my shower.

Maha on MSNBC
Barring a change of programming (for which I am praying fervently), I'm going to be talking about blogs on Countdown with Keith Olberman tonight. Wish me luck.
Watch for the replay of Deborah Norville show at 2am edt on MessNBC, she and the guests were HAMMERING CBS/Rather!
Abrams report guest DeGenova was hitting hard too, only saw part of it, but he said CBS news rating were cratering and "deservedly so"!
Sounds liberated to me! Definitely is not oppression or slavery.
"Submit yourselves one unto another..."
At a presentation of the physician's portion of the abstinence program, "Worth the Wait," I was surprised by the questions I was asked by the 6th graders. One girl, after I had told them that the best and only safe sex was one partner for life, asked me, "How do you know he's the one."
After acknowledging that she had asked the toughest question of all, I told them that the other person would make you feel better about yourself -as though you are a better person when you're around him or her - and that each should feel like he or she was lucky to have the other - that probably each should feel that he or she is more lucky than the other!
"Just in case Barb wants the true facts on the culture of the unfolding blogocalypse"
That's why I publish The Blogspirator!
Tinfoil not included. Do not fold, spindle, or mutilate.
I guess conservatives are the ones who are "hip" now. And liberals? They're still stuck in 1967.
Will try! If I can stay awake. :)
The ad hominem attacks and slurs on bloggers, Buckhead, and Freerepublic reveal the very condescending, smarmy, and elitist mentality of these mediaoids. Some of them still don't get it. Bizarre. They are that out of touch with reality and American culture.
That's lame. Buckhead and the doubters that followed him were right. Mary Mapes and Dan Rather, whose name is on the bottom of the screen all the time, were wrong, and now they have enough egg on their faces to make a week's worth of omelettes.
Besides, we wouldn't ever have known Bill Burkett's identity if the memos had been authentic. Sell that schtuff somewhere else.
Mine arrive Friday. I'll send another pic after Permablue does its trick. Psyops can be fun.
This is a compliment, we should send our thanks.
Well, I know a real, live, actual Travis McGee, so as far as I'm concerned, you're covered, hoss!
I am sure Norville -- who was slammed relentlessly as not being serious enough to sit on the same Today set with Jane Pauley, much less replacing her -- is getting a little chuckle as one of the heavy hitters of "hard" news is exposed as having lower journalistic standards than those of Norville's Inside Edition, the lone survivor of the tabloid TV trend that began with Maury Povich's A Current Affair.
Oh, by the way -- it was Inside Edition that first made Bill O'Reilly a household word.
When I was in high school they taught us in civics that far-left was "radical" and far-right was "reactionary." Do these attributions still apply? Granted my high school was situated in the shadow of Berkeley, CA but I had no reason at the time to doubt my teacher. It's one of those reactions one learns early in life that seems like a reflex - I notice when someone uses "radical" to describe a conservative.
Am I off the mark here?
Does the political spectrum still exist?
The goofier liberals seem to be having a hard time coming to terms with the fact that conservatives are better bloggers. And better with handling the internet in general. Now...THERE's a story for them to work on.
I am not a radical.........lot's of people bury bodies under their house.
I prefer the term "bodacious."
Cool for the guys but I prefer to think of we ladies as "Victoria's Secret Service"....:)
Bodacious Babes of the Right ?
Aren't Freepradicals supposedly a good thing? Sorry, couldn't resist.
is that a photo of buckhead (jk)
i tell you, i would be mighty scared to be anywhere near a truck with that many arabs on top of it
Joe himself was suggesting Heyward should resign and put Burkett's email up on screen where he explains his conversation with Cleland.
Burkett: "I asked if they wanted to counterattack or ride this to ground and outlast it, not spending any money. Cleland said counterattack. So I gave them the information to do it with."
He also had Linda James on, the forensic examiner who was contacted by CBS on Sept. 3, and she examined them and told them she saw major problems with them, the signatures and the superscript font thing. CBS never got back to her after her analysis (surprise).
Joe a few nights ago said nice stuff about how great the blogger revolution and Dan Abrams talked about it tonite.
Watch for the replay of Scarborough Country right after Norville at 3amET/12amP! He was hitting Rathergate HARD.:-)
Freepers would love it, it was a great show, showing all the lines to all involved in the collusion. Buchanan freakin rocked tonite on there.
"Hey Mr. Olberdude, talk to the Mr. Hand."
Freerepublic is "Radical" says MSNBC guest, Buckhead mentioned
Phew...you Communist propagandists haven't seen 'Radical'. Weasels. Don't trust a word a Lefty says...ever. EVER!
Who or what is MSNBC? Is that a talk radio show?
