Skip to comments.Olbermann: Petaeus is a "press flack" for Bush, and runner-up for "worst person in the wsolrld"

Tonights runner-up, General David Petraeus. It turns out his role as a press flack for President Bush began long before his embarrassing testimony to Congress last September. Pentagon documents say that hoping to soften up the military panelists scheduled for Meet The Press on August 28, 2005, Pentagon spokesman Larry DiRita had a deputy assistant secretary of defense contact Petraeus in Iraq and ask him to start shilling. Petraeus promptly got on the phone to each of the military analysts and gave them supposedly insider accounts of how well things were going in Iraq.
Olbermann is referring to this post on the blog Think Progress, which is following up on the New York Times piece on Pentagon analysts that the far left is going batty over because story isn't making more of a splash. Oddly enough, Olbermann is implicating NBC's own expert, General Barry McCaffrey, with this. Brian Williams offered his take on all of this a few weeks ago...
Maybe someone should ask Senator Obama if he thinks smearing General Petraeus as a press flack is an appropriate description of the general's service.

Just when you think he’s reached bottom he surpasses his own foul taste with this. He and the dwarf running (Name?) for Minn Senate ought to get married.
Who’s press flack does that make Keith Oberon, then?
No, he’s playing a role; that of outrageous liberal.
To say he’s imbalanced leaves him off the hook.
Assclown is too complimentary a word for this guy.
Barve men and women are dying so this Douche’ can live!
Why give Olbermann, that very bad odor, the honor of appearing on this forum in any manner? I doubt anyone here hangs his words.
Even worse, they subject us to him at half-time of football games. Thank heavens for the mute button.
Someone needs to kick his ass, seriously. What about that Caribbean woman who slammed him for his lousy ‘performance’ on the web?
She should be adequate.
Anybody got a link to the audio of Tom Harken calling people with a military backgroud “dangerous”?
Keith Olberman is a dickless accordian player.
It is indeed a barve new wslorld.
I extend an open invitation to Oberman for free Tai Kwon Do lessons at my school.
Oops, mispeeled wsolrld!
Olberman is a hate-filled, spittle-brained moron.
